The singer was on an ice-cream run with husband Wissam Al Mana.
While Janet, 50, has yet to officially announce the pregnancy, her brother Jermaine confirmed the baby news to “Extra” in May.
Jermaine said, “Janet’s my baby… She’s pregnant,” adding, “She’s like a baby to me, a baby having a baby, but at the same time, she’s my little sister. I’m an uncle again, which I’m very proud of. I wish them both the best. If they need any baby skills, I’m the best at it ’cause they all say I have the most kids.”
When asked how she was feeling, Jermaine shared, “She’s doing great.”
Janet postponed the European leg of her Unbreakable tour in April, revealing in a video that she and her husband were planning their family, but never specifically said she was with child.
Janet Jackson is pregnant with her first child, just weeks before her 50th birthday, Entertainment Tonight reported Wednesday. The news comes a month after Jackson announced she would postpone her tour to “focus on her family” with husband Wissam Al Mana.
Jackson’s initial postponement in early April–in which she said she was under doctor’s orders to rest–led fans to worry that she was dealing with something scarier, such as cancer. Clearly, this news is much better to hear. There’s been no official word yet from the Jackson camp on the pregnancy, but that shouldn’t stop us from picking out baby names should it?
Janet Jackson on Saturday returned to the stage after a four-month hiatus for mysterious health reasons, bringing her energetic dance show to Dubai.
The pop superstar performed in the Gulf emirate as the entertainer to close the Dubai World Cup, the world’s most lucrative horse race.
She went ahead with the show following a series of cancellations which included an abrupt delay of the entire European portion of her “Unbreakable” tour.
With a troupe of choreographed dancers gliding behind her, Jackson put on a medley of hits including her classic “Control” and the more recent and funkier “All Nite (Don’t Stop).”
Jackson — whose 2004 performance at another sporting event, the Super Bowl, was marred by the exposure of her breast — left open no chance of a similar “wardrobe malfunction” in the Muslim emirate, wearing an arms-length black jumpsuit with an oversized necklace.
Jackson last year released “Unbreakable,” her first album since the death of her brother Michael Jackson in 2009, and embarked on a major tour.
But until Dubai, she had not performed since November 22 in Japan. On Christmas Eve, she announced a delay in her North American tour, saying that she needed an urgent operation.
The 49-year-old revealed no other details about her health but later issued a statement to deny speculation that she was suffering from cancer.
With her European tour off, she is not due to perform again until May 14 in Las Vegas as she resumes performances in North America.
Jackson has ties to the Gulf as she married Wissam Al Mana, a billionaire businessman from Qatar, in a private ceremony in 2012.
Her late brother moved temporarily to Bahrain at the invitation of a prince as the King of Pop tried to evade the media glare following his 2005 acquittal on child molestation charges.
Janet Jackson helped reshape the concert landscape in the late 1980s with her “Control” and “Rhythm Nation” tours, considered landmarks for their elaborate dance routines and messages of empowerment.
Janet Jackson is still rolling, taking her Unbreakable album on the road for a world tour of the same name.
Lately she’s been in Hawaii for three shows, and on Sunday night (Nov.15) at the Neil Blaisdell Concert Arena, she debuted a new song during the concert from the album called “Night,” a fun, danceable offering that’s very much so Ms. Janet’s signature sound! However, Janet didn’t dance; rather she stood in one place and exuded sexiness while delivering the song with live vocals.
No word on if the song will get a more extravagant set, but for now, enjoy the minimal live version below.
Janet Jackson is getting some company on her sultry new single, “No Sleeep.” A version of the song featuring J. Cole will be sent to radio Thursday, Billboard has exclusively learned. The new iteration with the red-hot rapper will appear on Jackson’s new album, out in late September. Janet Jackson’s ‘No Sleeep’ Debuts on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Charts Jackson’s solo version of “No Sleeep,” which will not appear on the album, rose to No. 5 in its second week on Billboard’s Adult R&B airplay chart, making it the diva’s first top five hit on that chart in 11 years.
The J. Cole version will go to the Adult R&B format, as well as Hot R&B (urban mainstream) and Rhythmic radio. Jackson and Cole recorded the new tune in a Los Angeles recording studio two weeks ago, according to sources. Janet Jackson Announces Unbreakable World Tour Jackson attended the Los Angeles stop on Cole’s Forest Hills Drive Tour on Sunday at Staples Center. She tweeted a photo of herself from the show surrounded by girlfriends, but gave no hint of her collaboration with the “Apparently” performer.
The singer’s new album will be the first release on her own Rhythm Nation Records, a worldwide partnership with BMG. Cole’s current album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 following its December 2014 release. Jackson’s management and BMG declined to comment.
