Just three weeks remain until Janet Jackson‘s wildly anticipated ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ kicks off.

And while details surrounding the global trek have been guarded with potent precision, tea has begun to trickle out.

The latest surrounds the ‘No Sleeep’ singer’s new partnership with fashion force Giuseppe Zanotti.

Full story below…

WWD revealed that 49-year-old Jackson has paired up with shoe designer Giuseppe – who has designed sneakers done in multiple color ways for the diva to don onstage.

Speaking on the collaboration, Zanotti, said:

“Janet is a close friend of mine — we have been close for a long time and I have always felt the greatest affection for her. She has always been a very loyal supporter of the brand and product. She talked to me about her upcoming Unbreakable World Tour when we were together in Milan earlier this year, [and] she asked me to consider making her a special shoe for the tour. Of course, I was…very flattered and I immediately started to sketch some ideas out for her.

Janet will be dancing a lot on stage as well as singing, so I wanted her to be very comfortable and able to move around easily. The shoe has to be light but practical and provide support to her feet.”


Per the report, the shoe, a high-top sneaker based on one of the brand’s most popular existing styles, will be customised in two exclusive colour combinations and new detailing.

What’s more, Zanotti – who has worked with Beyonce, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj – will also be dressing the tour’s dancers and backing singers too, a feat that will mark his first time handling an entire tour.

He said:

“We are frequently asked to provide special shoes for celebrities on tour, [but] this is the first time we are the only luxury shoe company involved”.

 Janet Jackson’s ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ kicks off August 31st in Vancouver.

      Slay what? A Subway station near you?

      • Knowles Carter August 11, 2015

        Brandy is selling out Broadway whilst Cierror can barely max out a McDonald’s play place. Please tread lightly 🙂

  2. Molly August 11, 2015

    What a boring era.

    • Maudey August 11, 2015

      You’re such a hater to make it your business to always comment under Janet post please get a life….

      • Molly August 11, 2015

        Im a hater for telling the truth? THIS IS A BORING ASS COMEBACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TRANET NEEDS TO COME HARDER..

      • Knowles Carter August 11, 2015

        The irony at a Ciara fan calling anyone a tranny.

      • Shady81 August 11, 2015

        @Molly oh and where is Ciara?…. oh I forgot promoting Russell Wilson or shall I say Russell’s promoting her while she should be working on her staggering promo for that shitless album Jackie while at the same time getting herself and her beau caught in the middle of some baby daddy drama with Future.

      • red wine August 11, 2015

        maybe c error can open for Janet and bring her water to the stage

    • Jrod August 11, 2015

      How are you going to comment, when Ciara’s whole career has been a horrible imitation of Jane’t successful career which I might add. Ciara couldn’t even sell out standing room only venues, girl get a clue!

    • Regina George August 11, 2015

      Molly… Gurl… Don’t press play on yo bull shyyt today… Stand down

      The irony.

      • Molly Stan August 11, 2015

        I love you sis

  5. Suicide Blonde August 11, 2015

    So the album is going to be released after the tour ends or while touring?…I honestly think is a bad idea to not promote the album, she should at least try, you never know.

    • What now August 11, 2015

      It’s just going 2 flop like her career has post 01 anyway.

    • jjsrb August 11, 2015

      Album will be released in late september and he will promote the album. For instance, we already know she’s closing iHeartMusic festival. I’m sure it’s only one out of many things she will do.

      • Shady81 August 11, 2015

    Whitney Vs Mariah (A Grudge Match)
    Years had passed since the fights between Mariah
    Carey and Toni Braxton; fights instigated by Ms.
    Whitney Houston. * Both Mariah and Toni swore
    they would repay Whitney for her trickery. At one
    time Whitney even pretended to kiss and make up
    with Mariah and to be her friend but when Mariah
    was having her most resent troubles she turned on
    her. When Mariah’s label offered her money not to
    record Whitney caught wind that her label was
    recruiting the golden diva and Whitney made
    moves to block her coming. Toni told Mariah not
    to believe the hype and she was right Whitney was
    a `snake in the grass’ just like her cousin Dionne.
    But now the time for retribution had finally come.
    Deacon arranged a mystery battle with Whitney for
    the benefit; normally Whitney would not agree to
    such a match but cocaine makes people think they
    are the “baddest” things on the planet. There was
    to be a mystery opponent and a mystery referee;
    Mariah and Toni. It was almost pathetic. Whitney
    was in such poor shape physically but Mariah was
    just as messed up emotionally, G-Man thought
    that it should not happen but it was Deacon’s call.
    Deacon had the “serious hots” for Toni and would
    do anything to please the sultry vixen. Toni
    required some interesting stipulations. She asked
    that Deacon build a replica of the bathroom where
    the original conflict took place. G-Man told him if
    he wanted to do that for her he would have to pay
    out of his own pocket; Deacon had no problem it
    was a request from “T-Brax”.
    The time came and all parties had agreed on every
    aspect of the match and signed on the dotted line.
    Whitney was loud bragging and saying who much
    fun it would be to “whoop a b%tc#’s @$$ Just like
    in Jr. High school days in the bathroom”. When
    she saw Mariah and Toni she froze for a moment
    then resumed her ranting and raving; “Oh what? I
    gotta fight these two talentless b%c#es?” “Is that
    the m()%#@F…()@% in’ mystery?” “Baby I aint
    eeeven worried cause God is on my side… No
    problem, no problem at all… I will whoop both
    they lil @$$es” “Bobbie show me some gangsta’
    S#i% I can put them on they @$$”
    Toni was wearing a designer referee’s French cut
    singlette with a low cut neckline to her sensuous
    navel and a split down the back to the breach of
    her peerless posterior. She entered the replica first
    while subtly beckoning both Mariah and Whitney
    in. Whitney was the first to strut in, wearing long
    black spandex pants, a black sports bra and a pair
    of cross trainers. Toni stood in front of the stalls in
    the middle of the room, Whitney went the length of
    the room turned and leaned against the wall
    awaiting her opponent. Mariah entered wearing a
    white sports bra teaming with her bountiful
    mammary overshadowing Whitney’s observable
    insufficiency. Mariah was also wearing a white
    loincloth from which her lengthy legs sprouted and
    from which the Africaness of her hearty golden
    rump was on display.
    Toni spoke, ” Here are the rules ladies, ain’t none,
    when I think you had enough of an @$$ whoopin’ I
    will stop it.” “Well let’s get it on”
    The two sopranos screamed a kind of battle cry
    and tore into one another. Clawing, kicking,
    punching, biting, snatching hair; both wailing in
    pain and in rage. Round and round they danced
    the dance of battle, banging each other’s bodies
    from wall to stall door. As scrawny as Whitney now
    is you would think she had no fight in her; but
    never underestimate the power of a crack head.
    Mariah was undaunted by Whitney’s drug addict
    strength for hers was the power of pain and
    suffering which she was more than happy to
    unleash on her enemy.
    As they clenched into a double headlock they fell
    into an open stall struggling arm and leg; both
    seeking a superior hold or position. Mariah started
    ramming Whitney’s head into the walls of the stall
    and stomping on her feet. Whitney responded by
    taking advantage of their closeness and biting the
    golden Amazon on the forehead; Mariah growled in
    pain but did not cease her assault against her foe.
    Mariah slipped her hand into Whitney’s pants
    locking a Kama Sutra claw; Whitney ceased her
    biting and screamed bloody murder. Mariah took
    her elbow and drove it into Whitney’s neck
    converting her screams into gagging. Whitney’s
    eyes began to wall, foam oozed from her mouth,
    veins popping in her neck, arms tensed and what
    was left of her thighs and b*** started to tremble.
    As if that was not enough Mariah began to head
    b*** Whitney in the face.
    Toni by this time was ecstatic jumping up and
    down, clapping and shouting “Kill the B%t#h
    Mariah Kill the Bit#h ” Mariah suddenly realized
    that she was killing Whitney and released her
    choke but not the claw; as Whitney cough, gagged
    and spat to regain her breath. “Who is the Grand
    Diva? Who’s the Diva B%t#h?” Mariah demanded
    as she twisted Whitney’s womanhood inside out;
    Bi%c# I will snatch your pu$$% Out”
    “You are Mariah… you are… now please let me go
    ” Whitney begged.
    “Who else H**! Who else?”
    “OK OK Toni too You’re both Diva’s” Whitney
    “And you?” Mariah solicited as she ripped at
    Bobby’s favorite spot.
    “I.. I ain’t S*** OK? Now please let me go ” She
    pleaded. Mariah released her gruesome hold
    Whitney slumped to the floor; then Mariah grabbed
    Whitney’s head and plunged it into the toilet and
    began to flush and dunk as Toni laughed

She only ever had a career due to Michael’s name & fame. She never had any talent herself. And now she cant use even use her bro to get acclaim anymore. Poor dat! [email protected] R&B. You sad sorry peons. Tranet’s wannabe comeback is a floooopp!!!

      • Tommy Johnson August 11, 2015

        #1 is a #1 no matter where it falls. It’s like a ball game. This is very good because Janet has not promoted this song at all. Other artist do all this heavy promotion and still can’t get a #1 to fall no where on the charts. Keep hating and Janet is going to keep moving higher. This is her 35th #1 on this chart now what about your favorite???

  23. Aaliyah Dana Carter August 11, 2015

    Death at these Janet Stans celebrating a flop song being number 1 on the adult R&B charts where there are only like 10 songs up there lmbooo. While no sleep fell out of the hot 100 again.

    • BBoston206 August 11, 2015

      Really. Only a Janet stan would pretend that being #1 on a chart where every week Billboard probably has to search for songs to add to it because 85% of what plays on that format are old songs means something. Congrats Janet. It was a tight race between “No Sleeep” and 1982 Gap Band “You Dropped The Bomb on Me”.

      • Aaliyah Dana Carter August 11, 2015


  24. Tommy Johnson August 11, 2015

    Yessss, we will continue to celebrate!! Stay tuned there’s more to come from the Ultimate ICON. Plush

  25. jjsrb August 11, 2015

    I LOVE this era. JANET is so smart. The tour is practically already sold-out. We’re talking about over 60 dates, including 55 shows in largest arenas. And that’s only beginning. “No Sleeep” is now a NUMBER ONE song and I don’t think Janet wanted to smash the pop charts, so I think we can call it a hit. It’s served its purpose well. Her next single will be the real lead single and I can’t wait to hear it. In Janet I trust.

  26. Qaz August 11, 2015

    The Adult R&B songs chart is about as (in)significant as the Dance/Club charts. But when you’re the fan of a has been, you have to take any “victory” where it can be found. Um, congrats?

  27. @JanetCIARA_ August 11, 2015

    Come through JANET!
    Plz drop the next UPTEMPO SINGLE on the first day of your tour! I need a new rush to get me ready for October when you come to my city!

  28. Mark111 /.\ August 11, 2015

    Was I not just talking about dancers need shoes and not heels yesterday in that Ciara post?

  29. Tommy Johnson August 11, 2015

    With all this hate against Janet, that just mean she is a triple threat!! Keep hating idiots. A win is a win I don’t care who you play. A #1 is a #1. All you haters are threatened by the Ultimate ICON otherwise you wouldn’t be hating, and that means Janet is doing the dam thing.

  30. Sandra August 13, 2015

    Janet Jackson is so overrated, she could never sing and her dancing isn’t that impressive. She will forever live in the shadow of her vastly more talented brother Michael Jackson.
