Janet Jackson is taking her tour to Houston and has a special surprise for fans who were affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The star took to Twitter on Wednesday to confirm the news that she would be performing in Houston despite the devastation left in the area by the hurricane and the storm that followed.
“We’re going to roll in early because we wanted to visit some of the shelters,” she said. “And not just visit some of the shelters, we also want to do something special. So, we’ll see you Friday!”

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.
