Janet Jackson Breaks Down On Stage

Published: Sunday 10th Sep 2017 by David

Janet Jackson and her team of writers are often praised for raising awareness for society’s ills through song.

One of their greatest moments? ‘What About‘, a cut in which Jackson tells the tale of a woman facing the horrors of domestic  abuse.

Today, decades after its release, the song still moves the star to tears.

Watch what happened when she performed the song live on tour hours ago below…

What about the times you hit my face?
What about the times you kept on when I said, “No more please”
What about those things?
What about that, what about that?


Why do you think Ms. Jackson broke down?

    OMG that performance with her makeup and body, but it was intense. THis is what makes her ONE OF THE GREATEST FEMALE PERFORMERS OF ALL TIME. Intense

    She is the best and most honest female performer of all time. Her music is ALWAYS her… ALWAYS

    This might be the reason why she left Al Mana, something really bad was happening for her to end the marriage just a few months after giving birth, maybe things got worse when the baby was born, I don’t want to generalize but Arab men have a reputation of treating their wives like slaves.

      You don’t want to generalize yet you’re always generalizing. And how do you know that her breaking down had anything to do with Wissan? She could’ve been thinking about her past abusive husband.

        Exactly! Girl just shut up already and worry about that old hag you Stan for.

    Janet saying this is me sounds like winssam was controling everything about “Janet Jackson” and she couldn’t be herself s*** Janet with body forming clothing. That was deep you could feel and see the pain when watching that really feel made me feel bad for janet but that brings great music. Queen Janet back to snatching wigs!

      I ment s*** Janet, writing on phone.

        ThatgrapeJuice is messing with my text, we know how Janet gets.

    This is further proof that Janet does not lip-sync her shows. I dont think this is about Renee. He co-wrote that song i think. I also dont think this is about Jermaine so there are only a couple people that comes to mind she could be singing about.

    Doesn’t abuse always sound this good even when it’s an old song? 🤔🤔

  12. Inutu September 11, 2017

    I’m a huge fan,but that’s a perfect definition of a drama queen moment

  13. erica September 12, 2017
