Janet Jackson has been thrilling fans on her epic selling ‘Unbreakable Tour.’ However, some supporters have felt the sting when trying to share clips from the trek on social media. Most especially on Instagram.
TMZ reported earlier this week how many of concert-goers were having their videos from the show pulled down, with some even having their accounts closed because of it.
Given today’s social climate, the practice naturally drew criticism – some of which was levelled at Jackson.
Keen to clear up the confusion, the superstar took to Facebook moments ago to release a statement.
Her words below…
Via Janet Jackson:
Hey you guys, I have been listening…
I love and appreciate my fans. I want you to know that I enjoy watching the short video clips of how you are Burning It Up at the Unbreakable shows. Please keep posting them.
My team is passionate about protecting the intellectual property we are creating for the tour and possible future projects. It was never their intention, acting on my behalf, to have social media accounts removed. Permitting the use of long clips does present a contractual problem for these projects. I hope you understand. I trust the fans will use their short recordings for their own memories and to share on their social media networks of choice.
I have asked my team to change their approach and allow you to engage socially with these videos.
I know I wouldn’t be here without the love I stand on.
And there you have it!
