Janet confirms she’ll take her tour global

In an interview in London with LBC, Janet Jackson confirmed that her State Of The World Tour will be global and will see international dates.

“I’ve not finished with the State Of The World Tour. I’ve always said it was a world tour,” she said. “There’s still lots of places that I have to go to and I’m looking forward to being there.”

Whilst she didn’t confirm any other specifics, Janet also spoke a lot about religion and spirituality. When asked what was “up there”, she said it wasn’t a person but it was “nothing but love”.

She was also asked her thoughts on Donald Trump but said she “didn’t want to dive into politics”.

Asked about her fans she said, “I love the fact that we have a great relationship and it’s a beautiful thing.”

“I see the same group of people in the first few rows, even from Europe. And when they realise that I recognise them I can see that it warms them.”

Janet appears on cover of Essence magazine ahead of festival performance

Ahead of her upcoming performance at the Essence Festival in New Orleans, Janet Jackson has shared her own essay entitled “Letter From My Heart”.

  • In Her Childhood: “I was happy when my brothers came home from performing on the road. I was happy when my mother lavished me with love. But I wasn’t happy with the way I looked…”
  • In Her Teens: “Happiness came when people asked me to perform…but I was happiest when I was pleasing others and not myself. An older and wiser Janet might have said, ‘True happiness is knowing you’re doing the best you can…'”
  • In Her Thirties: “These were difficult years, when I struggled with depression. The struggle was intense. I could analyze the source of my depression forever. Low self-esteem might be rooted in childhood feelings of inferiority. It could relate to failing to meet impossibly high standards. And of course there are always the societal issues of racism and sexism. Put it all together and depression is a tenacious and scary condition. Thankfully, I found my way way through it…”
  • Today, at 52: “Now the height of happiness is holding my baby son in my arms and hearing him coo, or when I look into his smiling eyes and watch him respond to my tenderness. When I kiss him. When I sing him softly to sleep. During those sacred times, happiness is everywhere. Happiness is in gratitude to God…”
