Creative Director: Janet Jackson’s New Tour Won’t Be ‘Unbreakable’ Tour Rehash

Gil D. Promises New Choreography, Staging, Costume Changes, & More
Published: Thursday 17th Aug 2017 by Rashad

All roads lead to September 7th for Janet Jackson.

As has been widely reported, the 51-year-old pop icon has spent the time since postponing her ‘Unbreakable’ tour not only tending to son Eissa (now 8 months old), but also reminding everybody that she is the still the reigning Queen of “snap back.”  Even fully clothed and covered, fans’ jaws dropped when they saw glimpses of the (once again) svelte singer behind the scenes recently at Kendrick Lamar‘s concert.

The rapid weight loss, according to her creative director, Gil Duldulao, is just the first of many surprises fans can expect on the trek – revamped as the ‘State of the World’ tour.  Details on the new choreography, staging, costumes, and more await inside:

Taking to our friends at Entertainment Tonight, Duldulao stated:

“Despite how life has changed for her… if anything, she is even more dedicated and more focused for some reason,” Duldulao explains. “That’s just the professional she is. If she loves what she does — and she loves being onstage — the work ethic doesn’t change.”

Dishing on the singer’s jaw-dropping 65-pound weight loss, Gil stated:

“She is dedicated,” he reveals. “I mean, she is really strict with her diet.”

“Honestly, I told her — I was like, ‘You’re skinny. You’re really thin,'” he gushes. “So, if anything, I think we’re going to have to have some seamstresses on hand to bring [the costumes] in more. Because she’s losing weight every day. I’m telling her, ‘Girl, you’re skinny. Are you sure [you don’t want to wear this]?'”

When quizzed on if the SOTW tour will just be a redo of everything fans who attended the ‘Unbreakable’ world tour had already seen, the creative director replied:

“The fans clearly will get a show. It’s not going to be the Unbreakable show. No, they’re going to get the State of the World Tour show.”


The 56-city tour officially kicks off Sept. 7 in Lafayette, Louisiana.

    I can’t wait to see her live again. I attended her Rock With You Tour and her Unbreakable Tour. She performs better than all of these female performers, even those that are half her age. Janet does indeed sing live over prerecorded vocals and dances her but off on tour. Unbreakable Tour was very impressive. She definitely still has it but hopefully this time she will bring the s*** outfits back to the show…that was the only thing missing from the Unbreakable Tour was costume changes.

      Stop it she doesn’t perform better then all of other performers especially when she’s another Britney Spears act with better dance moves…✌🏽😂

        Girl you and your lies. lol pls stfu

      • Wtf August 18, 2017

        You must be trollin? Another Britney Spears act? Janet is the blueprint. Without Janet, Britney wouldnt exist. And neither would most of these other female artists.

        Back in the 80s and 90s every record company was trying to turn their artist into the next Janet Jackson.

    I’m excited! Janet seems ready to put on a show! I can’t wait to see this … I hope Gil doesn’t have to much input with the actual choreography, I prefer he stick with only being in charge of staging! As for Janet’s new look, I know it’ll be something super creative! Get it Empress!

      I agree Gil can stay away from choreography I’m not a fan of his choreography when he does it,it seems overly complicated and referbushed when that’s not Queen J history.

    I liked the Unbreakable tour, saw it twice and had plans for more. I’m excited about this trek, I hope it returns us to the days of yore when a Janet Jackson ticket was without question – even for the casual fan. I’ve got three shows earmarked this time. Can’t wait for September!

  7. …I HATE WHITE B******. …and. BLACK B******. …both not s***… August 18, 2017

    Michael had 50 sold out shows just in London alone but his body was in pain…..Janet’s skinny which is great but can her body really handle the baby, tour and the drastic fast weight lose. I don’t want her to have a heart attack
