Janet Jackson knows how to celebrate.
On Thursday, the singer, 51, performed in Chicago as part of her State of the World tour, and on Friday, she indulged at RPM Italian with her dancers and choreographer.
The group of 14 dined “discreetly in a private space,” according to a spy.
The table shared lobster ravioli with white truffles, ribeye and filet mignon, chicken Parmesan, spaghetti carbonara, wood-roasted octopus, among other dishes. Jackson likes the bucatini, Brussels sprouts and tuna bruschetta so much that she “placed a to-go order of the same items before leaving that night to pick up the next day,” the spy said.
Jackson made her way around town during her time there. She stopped by Deadbolt bar on Thursday night after her show, and she visited her childhood home in Gary, Indiana, on Friday.
Teyana Taylor’s dream has come true!
The singer and actress met her idol, Janet Jackson, over the weekend at a Toldeo show.
Taylor was set to meet Jackson at her “State of the World” tour stop in Milwaukee earlier this month, but couldn’t make it due to a delayed flight. However, Jackson surprised the distraught singer by FaceTiming her and vowing to meet her at a later date.
Now, the two have finally met and their meeting is as epic as expected.
Taylor paid homage to Jackson in August at MTV’s VMAs, where she took home the award for Best Chorepgraphy In A Video, the same award Jackson and her late brother Michael took home in 1995.
Singer Janet Jackson and her brother Randy Jackson have visited their childhood home in Gary, Indiana, and talked with local high school students.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that the Jacksons made the visit Friday, a day after Janet Jackson’s concert in the Chicago area. Janet Jackson told students at Roosevelt High School that she started crying when she saw the small house. She said, “me and my family are so blessed. I’m so thankful.”
The 51-year-old said she was 8-years-old the last time she was in Gary. The family moved out of the industrial city about 30 miles (50 kilometers) southwest of Chicago after the Jackson 5 recorded their first album in 1969, when Janet Jackson was a toddler.
She also told students she misses performing with her siblings.
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!”

It’s showtime #Janfam!
Pop and snapback queen Janet Jackson was fierceness personified tonight at Lafayette, Louisiana’s Cajundome. There, with her array of hits and jaw-dropping svelte figure in tow, the songstress blew the roof off the arena with the long-awaited kick off of her 2017 ‘State of the World’ tour (a reboot and revamp of 2016’s ‘Unbreakable’ tour).
Fans with any questions or concerns if the 51-year-old pop star/new mom still has “it” saw that worry silenced once Jackson hit the stage – even declaring she came to “snatch wigs.”
