Via a 10-episode docu-series titled Simply Janet, the 51-year old pop icon will reportedly give fans a glimpse into her life as she prepares to kick off her State of the World tour, all while juggling first-time mommy-hood and the emotional fall-out from her recent separation from third husband, Wissam Al Mana.
According to published reports, Simply Janet will feature a behind-the-scenes look into private recording sessions, costume and touring preparations, as well as Janet and Wissam co-parenting their six-month old son Eissa.
Janet is set to resume her tour in the U.S on September 7th, however, the documentary will reportedly cover preparations for the Asian and European leg of the trek, which is said to be getting a huge makeover.
After perusing the children’s store, Jackson headed into a furniture store next door. Fortunately, she was able to take a look around in privacy as both shops locked their doors while she was inside. As one source said, Jackson “looked relaxed and happy.”
She seemed equally in good spirits just days ago when the triple threat took to the Internet to confirm the news of her split from her husband of five years, Wissam Al Mana.
“Yes, I separated from my husband,” she said into the camera during a YouTube video. “We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.”
The new mom also gushed about her baby boy for the first time publicly. “I thank God for him you guys,” Janet shared. “He’s so healthy. He’s so beautiful, so loving, such a happy baby.”
While she raises her son, Jackson also has another big project on the calendar—her rescheduled world tour.
“I’m continuing my tour as I promised. I’m so excited you guys. I decided to change the name of the tour: The State of the World tour,” she told fans in the video.
“It’s not about politics. It’s about people, the world, relationships and just love.”
Excuse me while I scream and dance my happy dance.
So what can Janet be up to? According to janetjackson.com we have 11 minutes before knowing what is going on, I am anxious, How about ya’ll?
Is Janet Jackson gearing up to hit the road again? If new Ticketmaster listings hold true, then the answer could be… “yes.”
The 50-year-old legend made headlines the world over last April when she halted her ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ to “plan a family.”
Jackson was pregnant and this January gave birth to son Eissa Al Mana.
And while fans were told to hold on to their tickets ahead of the rescheduling of dates, folk weren’t expecting to see Jackson back in action soon.
Now, it appears she may be on the comeback trail much faster than initially thought.
A sect of observant ticket holders noted a change in their Ticketmaster accounts as pertains to the show.
Boasting new dates, some listed in September and others through to December, the trek is listed as the ‘Janet Jackson: State Of The World Tour.’
The name is lifted from a track on her mega-selling and critically acclaimed ‘Rhythm Nation’ album.
Could these be real shows or merely placeholder dates? Time will tell. But whatever the case, it would appear Jackson is is readying…something.
The news comes at a pivotal time for the superstar singer.
As widely reported, she recently separated from husband of five years Wissam Al Mana; with confirmation coming just three months after the birth of Eissa.
