October 2nd 2015.

This date will deliver the hotly anticipated set that is Janet Jackson‘s latest LP ‘Unbreakable’ which marks her first since she returned from a hiatus that almost lasted a decade.

One of the highlights of her latest era would have been a performance at the iHeart Radio Festival.

Why “would”?

Ms. Jackson has been forced to pull out.

Find out why below…

An issue with the performer’s ears forced her to cancel her set at the event as she continues to  wow crowds at ‘The Unbreakable Tour’ which continues as scheduled this week.

The performance would have marked her first live show for the general public since her return to Pop’s courts.

    I was so pissed about it last night, but you know what? The queen knows best. Plus, she still slayed her show that night anyway.

  2. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) September 19, 2015

    Sounds like she still has vertigo (the reason why she cancelled her 2008 tour). Janet’s health comes FIRST.

  3. King Mark111 /.\ September 19, 2015

    Get well soon Queen. This is Janet, the woman that danced 2 hours a night with sore feet. So she wouldn’t just cancel for selfish reasons.

    • JanStan September 19, 2015

      More less at 49 years old. #legend

  4. al September 19, 2015

    As if ifs gona suffer the sales of Unbreakable… Pls TGJ #low

  5. Stephy. September 19, 2015

    Janet’s performance of “All Night” was great. I love seeing the clips on Twitter. Can’t wait to see her live. Hopefully, by next year, she’ll have a whole new wardrobe. Love her.

    • JanStan September 19, 2015

      I’m interested to see how the tour evolves after the album releases. I’m guessing that there will be more performances of songs off of it. Cant wait til the 10th!!

  6. Shady81 September 19, 2015

    Janet’s ear ache could be Barotrauma (ear pain cause by flying in high altitudes) this also could be an added factor with her existing Vertical Headaches so she was definitely unable to fly due to this condition. As reported by Fox News she wasn’t the only legendary artist to cancel the iheart festival gig, but rock Legends The Who also canceled due to one of their bandmates having Meningitis, so here’s wishing both Janet and the band member from The Who have a speedy recovery.

    • Shady81 September 19, 2015

      Vertigo Headaches.

  7. Sure Did September 19, 2015

    Beyonce would have just pushed past the pain and gave an amazing performance, but everybody isn’t Bey.

    Hope Janet gets better.

    • @Sure Did September 19, 2015

      Beyhive is so dumb!!! Janet already had a show last night in North Carolina. Her iheartradio performance was supposed to be tonight in VEGAS, plus a show in Miami tomorrow night. Why would she do that all of that for ONE show? It’s idiotic!!!

    • JanStan September 19, 2015

      Youre soooooo right. Janet isn’t Bey. Janet is a legend.

      • SkakaZulu September 19, 2015

        And so is Beyonce!!!

      • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) September 19, 2015

        No Bey is not

      • Avenger September 19, 2015

        Janet is no legend, she is a has been who only ever had a career due to her brothers name.

      • Jtribe September 19, 2015

        Dear Avenger,

        Anyone that says Janet is a hasbeen is an idiot. Moreover, if her success is due to her brother then why hasn’t any other Jackson seen her success? Also, there was a time when Michael actually requested/ depended on Janet. Janet ruled over a decade and not only made amazing pop albums, but also managed to be socially conscious….something you know nothing about…

  8. Suicide Blonde September 19, 2015

    Health comes first.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 19, 2015

      Suicide, what do you think of Jewel’s “Intuition”? Is it too pop-influenced for your tastes? Or would you rather prefer “Who Will Save Your Soul?” (kind of like everyone else) Serious question.

      • Suicide Blonde September 19, 2015

        “Who Will Save Your Soul”, i’m not a fan of neither but “Intuition” wasn’t Jewel, she was trying to be someone else IMO.

      • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) September 19, 2015

        Well i think Intuition is all the. Imo

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 19, 2015

      Well, you know with “Intuition” her goal was to make a mockery of the over-sexualization of pop music. I think she did a great job at accomplishing that. However, I thought it was quite peculiar for her fans to label her a “sell-out” without realizing her true intentions of the single and the “03/04” album. Also, the funniest thing to me is that the album only went gold and it’s still not platinum, even though the entire album is nothing more than generic pop music and the lead single peaked in the top 20 of the Hot 100. In my honest opinion, it was okay for her to take that risk, but not so early in her career. After all, her debut album did scan 12X platinum, which I’m still impressed by.

  9. fatusankoh September 19, 2015

    sure Did say thanks you are so right

  10. coolness September 19, 2015

    Aw man, I was really looking forward to seeing her perform tonight. However, her health comes first and this is not the first time I’ve heard about her having issues with her ears. Get well soon Queen ????????.

  11. Barb-wire September 19, 2015

    Aww get well soon Queen! I’m just glad that she’s doing all of this( new album and touring) coz she absolutely doesn’t have to, she’s a legend but she sure as hell care about her fans.

  21. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 19, 2015

    I really hope than Jan doesn’t cancel her Japan shows. It would honestly break my heart because it’s so difficult to find videos of her playing at a stadium online aside from the “All for You Tour”. Her health is what’s important, but for her to do 90+ shows lined up thus far, she’s gonna have to pull through and be a trooper like her brother.

  22. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 19, 2015

    Before someone says I’m trolling again, I’d like to make it VERY CLEAR that I AM NOT trolling as “Taylor Tart”. Like I said before, I’ve been here too long for people to not know my standard avi and username. No offense,@Taylor Tart.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 19, 2015

        Well, I’m not sure but I’ve literally NEVER seen it before since yesterday and it called me out like it knew me. I didn’t even know who it was! A troll with an avi….that’s a new low for whoever is behind it.

      I don’t want to make any enemies with the users on this blog because I genuinely do like most of them, but I’ve been dying to ask someone who’s a Taylor Stan this question: Which is the better album – “1989” or “Dead Pets” please explain your answer as best as possible.

      • Taylor Tart September 19, 2015

        miley cyrus??? REALLY THO I CAN’T EVEN WRITE THAT BIITCH IN CAPITAL. WASN’T HER ALBUM ABOUT DRUGS? BUT THE PERFORMANCE AND IMPACT OF BOTH ALBUMS IS THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTIONS

      • JanStan September 19, 2015

        Chile that would require coherent thought and critical thinking skills. Let’s not expect too much from these ‘Stan for whoever’s popular at the moment’ stans.

    • Shady81 September 19, 2015

      @Taylor no one’s a fan of yours unless you’re a fan of your own damn self now make like the uninvited party pooper you are and leave.

      • Taylor Tart September 19, 2015

      • Shady81 September 19, 2015

        Taylor tart I can do whatever the hell I want. You don’t own me your the one trolling like an idiot trying to get mentions wishing someone would die by saying Die Momma Jigsaw Die. I was just getting your tired ass together just like everyone else is, but I guess I can’t get past your ignorant ass mind. I feel like this if you don’t like somebody then why waste your time commenting I know we as people use are right to freedom of speech by damn did we ask for freedom of ignorance, I think not but you the one want to troll in peace, alright but just remember trolling never ends peacefully.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 19, 2015

      I guess that’s fair but Taylor never taking risks pretty much except for like pop music and that’s it but Miley’S new album was emotional, experimental, and just…..weird! She pulled a complete 180 and the album is about way more than just drugs. To be honest, “Pablo’s the Blogging” is one of the best songs I’ve heard this year. But “Clean” slays too.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 19, 2015

      @Jan Stan, will do! I’ll keep that in mind.

  25. #TeamTinashe Stan September 19, 2015

    The queen of cancellations!!!!!
    HASHTAG: #JanetsIMPACT 🙂

    • Musicstan September 19, 2015

      And Tinashe is the queen of stiffness???? don’t come for Janet when your fave is a reject of J.A.C.=Janet,Aaliyah and Ciara! Your shade fails! Thank you but no thank you ????????????

    • Shady81 September 19, 2015

      Team Tennis shoe stan Girl like you should talk about somebody cancelation when you’re faves portion of Janet’s BET tribute was full of Cheerleading & Rhythmmic gymnastics moves. She was up there given me Mary Lou, Shannon Miller, and Damonique Dawes with a little Gabby Douglas then if you add a High School Cheerleading team with the male cheerleader jump and doing backflips yelling “Ya team” into a bull horn that sums up Tennis Shoes I mean Tinashe whole entire route I didn’t know if I should change the channel or give a 2.5 score like they do in the summer Olympics, now don’t be tacky because there’s more where that came from.

  26. Qaz September 19, 2015

    I wonder what the ACTUAL reason is. Did they perhaps cancel her booking to make room for a more in-demand star? Curious.

  27. ka September 19, 2015

    I’m happy Janet is coming back to Toronto next year, I missed the queen Due to being sick that day 🙁

  28. Taylor Tart September 19, 2015

    AND I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST HER….. JUST FIRST COMMENTS THANGZ

    • BEY>RIH September 19, 2015

      Stfu trolling b****!!

  30. Taylor Tart September 19, 2015

    OH AND I’M NOT A TROLL NEITHER AM I BGKC

  31. Jay September 19, 2015

    There are some jealous people commenting. Janet is a legend period. She didnt even use her Jackson last name at one point, fired her dad, and banned all talks of her famous brothers for years. She paved the way. Beyonce is NOT a legend JUST YET. Beyonce is an icon, but has not done anything inovative nor groundbreaking. Beyonce’s catalog DOES NOT match her accolades. At least she can out sing and cares about her shows other then these new lackluster artist.

    Moving on, Janet is in demand. Her tours have sold out within minutes, and she has added a 3rd leg in Arenas. She has her own label, and doing it her way…just like Prince..other then her 1st 2 albums were considered “flops” for the 80s…they still sold more then these new acts out with new albums such as Tinashe, Ciara, Jhene…ect…anyway during the disgusting blackballing for years her albums still certified platinum and Discipline went Gold in Japan..admist label issues. She is one of the few top selling female legends out..and can still sell out arenas…she has been tributed by MTV and BET. She has performed and won EVERYTHING. She has nothing to prove, nor compete with the lame industry. She has DONE EVERYTHING.

    • Cough Cough September 19, 2015

      The new music is still lackluster, stop making excuses for her not to strive to release great stuff.

    • Tron September 19, 2015

      LOL, just stop. Running down a list of a exaggerated or insignificant factoids to try and prop her doesn’t change that she is yesterday’s news. “She has her own record label.” So do many over the hill acts who’ve been cold for so long that they can’t get a major to sign them. Janet is played out and you’ll get a harsh reminder of that when the first week sales of her new album are tallied.

      • JanStan September 20, 2015

        Care to clarify who ‘many of the over the hill’ peeps your talking about?

      • @Tron September 20, 2015

        But how tf do you know when her album is being released?

      • JanStan September 20, 2015

        I don’t follow. U said that many over the hill acts form record labels. I asked u to clarify. So do it.

  32. Janatic September 19, 2015

    Janet SLAYED Charlotte last night…I mean she shut the whole city down…She sold out a 20,000 seat ampitheatre…Many people missed the show because there was just too much traffic and the area was not equipped for that kind of crowd, and it still was jam packed. I’ve never seen anything like that. I saw the Queen in person!!! Amazing night even if I did miss some of it because of shi**y Charlotte traffic and terrible parking. No woman can see Janet on the stage I’m sorry. It was CRAZY!!! I can’t even explain.

  33. Janatic September 19, 2015

    But back to the point….That’s why she is not doing iHeart…It’s just too much to do Raleigh, Charlotte, Vegas, Miami and Orlando in back to back days. She may seem superhuman but that is still too much. Anybody on here commenting that Janet is over….LMAO…I’m on too much of a high right now to even stoop down that low with you…You have no idea…Janet will never be over…She is a LEGEND, a machine and until you’ve had the full Janet experience, you will never get it.

    • JanStan September 20, 2015

      @Janatic dont bother. These lessor stans can’t ever comprehend how a woman 30 years in the music game can be bowed down to enough to be offered a slot at such a prestigious event. While their faves are battling for chart positions and Facebook likes MOTHA is cancelling appearances that they’re faves are clawing to backfill.

      • Shady81 September 20, 2015

        Actually Janet’s been doing music since 1982 (for 33 years) and the entire Jackson family has been in business for 50 years. That’s quite an achievement especially for their family.

      • JanStan September 20, 2015

        Oh yes Shady I know. Take her appearance on good times into account and its 38 years in the entertainment biz. Hell she’s spent more time in the biz then these noobs have even been alive. Stans be actin like shes new and trying to compete. They. Just. Dont. Know.

  34. JanStan September 20, 2015

    Oooh I’m being taken there with all these hater newbie comments. I. CAN. NOT. I’m bout to drag somebody if they do not recognize MOTHAS impact!

  35. Gee September 20, 2015

    Her ears are very important to be able to give a great show hopefully she can get pass this and continue on this unbreakable journey/era.

  36. @JanetCIARA September 20, 2015

    prayers out to the ICONIC QUEEN

  37. Royalkev September 20, 2015

    I’m just glad that Janet’s in good health and she’s able to continue on with the tour. You can’t win them all! It wouldn’t make since for her to overextend herself by running across the country for Vegas, then back to Miami for the next tour stop. That’s pushing it! I need Janet to be 100%, I won’t be seeing her til next year!
