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.

    I love you Janet but I think you need to do something unexpected career wise.. To connect to the community or give back. Like visit some schools or hospitals , donate — do a few duets like with debarg or others— or collaborate with Beounsa on a baby song or do a video or home video or a over 40 baby talk something page — also congrats on your baby. I just had one my self at 49. I am about try for my second at 50 with a little help. Trying to strength my body now.

    Well, you got you REAL PRINCE… and that makes you a REAL QUEEN too ! How long before he Moonwalks, a couple of years? Janet Jackson, you always get what you want. Its always been that way, but remember, you’re the youngest, am the oldest, and nobody says go, until you say GO….Well, when you go to a shoe store now, you can’t just think about yourself now. And for the first time in your life… you’ve got to think about somebody else first before your self… that must be new for you, who has everything. But there’s one thing for sure; he has lots of family to play with, and now its official, when get to Beverly Hills, he’s going to drive TMZ fans nuts, you an him, getting of a flight at LAX. Elssa, looks like he’s ready for anything. Remember the song, your daddy’s RICH and your mama’s BEAUTIFUL, not just good looking, so hus-up, little baby and don’t you cry. remember that song?
    all Elssa, needs to do is eat and get strong, now, you know boys are always taller than their fathers, so he’s going to be taller than 6’4. Wow, are you ready to start looking up, at you own son.
    Janet, I know you’re going to give Elssa, every advantage, so look for all those Your Baby Can READ products, and let him grow up with those products: Then I want to see him on LITTLE BIG SHOTS with STEVE HARVEY.

    Janet you know I can talk to you all night, but keep showing and sending those wonderful baby shots.
    Your Old man!
    you know by now, that’s what you need; young guys aren’t ready to settle down, young women keep hitting on them just because they want to put themselves on your level, but young men think its them the girls want, so they fall for that sh.., not me… you’ve always been three times faster than all your guys… they are no match for a real Queen like you…don’t you see !

    If you’re ready for real love and a real family give me a chance. http://www.secretnotes.info our future is on these pages,
