Janet Jackson Issues Statement On Instagram Tour Drama

Published: Wednesday 21st Oct 2015 by Sam

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!

    That was smooth af lol…from that short little message you can feel the gratitude and appreciation she has for the people that put her where she is today – her fans.

    • truth(Janet is QWEEN, MaDINOSAUR is a flop! Deal!) October 21, 2015

      When will MaAncient? Kii!!

      • OMG Logic!!! October 21, 2015

        Grandmadonna never needed to do this because she was never taking people’s videos down. She knows people will go to her show no matter how many videos of the tour get posted. Her team is confident in her appeal. Obviously, Janet’s aren’t.

  3. BeySlaysss October 21, 2015

    Why did I read this in her soft iconic whisper voice.
    AnTEAways, her team is sooooo old school & A***! I mean, DAMN! They deleting bitchzes accounts just from 30 second videos! If anything, those vids are promo for Miss Jackson. Alot of these youngin’s ain’t thinking about Miss Jackson, so it’s actually a good way to allow them to see ha slay that stage and that might get them interested in purchasing a ticket! Miss Janet was so sweet & delicate in that letter tho. She’s so positive, humble, sweet & nice. Love you JJ

  8. Navy on Deck October 21, 2015

    • Bey da queen October 21, 2015

      Lol Rihanna exemplifies “boring” bih

  9. Maudey October 21, 2015

    Classy as always

  10. Navy on Deck October 21, 2015

    I’m fairly new to this site and the navy is weak. We have to get rid of that Centurion and LB. I’m dragging the hive from now on

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

    Such an understanding Queen that makes her point concise and doesn’t beat around the bush to tell people what they want to hear. Who else could deliver this subtle slayage?

  12. ❤Queen Molly❤ October 21, 2015

    She’s a sweetheart smh bey wouldn’t of said shitt.

    • Bey da queen October 21, 2015

      When is Ciara’s arena tour

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

        She’s doing an arena tour? I knew it! I’m so proud of that Queen! I love her and I hope she grosses at least $500,000 or show.

      • #JTribe October 22, 2015

        yea.. touring McDonalds

  13. JanStan October 21, 2015

    I’m guessing she broadcasts her May Vegas show. I’ll be there so I hope so:)

  14. Britney Spears The Legend. October 21, 2015

    A Queen’s response.

  15. .::Centurion::. October 21, 2015


  16. .::Centurion::. October 21, 2015

    We’re getting a DVD from Ms Jackson. She pretty much spilled the tea.

    • JanStan October 21, 2015

      I think that that’s possible but that wouldn’t necessarily require videos to be taken down as she would be releasing the DVD through her own label. Contractual obligations most likely points to a broadcast. I hope she does both though yay!

  17. King Mark111 /.\ October 21, 2015

    Hey, no one had a problem when Prince does it. Go find a LIVe show by Prince on the net, his team don’t play and don’t care.

  18. ratedxxx October 21, 2015

    I don’t even f** with Janet like that…but made me respect her more as a person….she directly acknowledge her fans…

    no wonder the beyondfake stans are always so bitter..their so call queen never acknowledge their asses like that..burn bish burn

  19. Theman October 21, 2015

    Lol, Janet is superior to Beyonce. She moved over six figures & she’s been an actual artist way longer. She doesn’t even have a second single at radio yet. She’s done barely any real promo. If her next single is a hit & she starts to do a TV campaign, with an amazing video, she’s going to be all gravy. Her album is amazing. She’s beautiful & is a legit BOSS.. She isn’t a phony artist that tosses her name on everything for extra credit. How would Beyonce’s stale A** sale without a radio hit. She banks on urban/rhythmic radio and shock value..

    • Huh? October 21, 2015

      What does Beyonce have to do with anything? Lol so obsessed and bitter.

  20. Lake Erie October 21, 2015

    A true Class Act. I love Janet.

  21. @JanetCIARA_ October 21, 2015


  22. Keri Qween October 21, 2015

    Classy Queen

  23. Huh? October 21, 2015

    Lol Beyonce is queen. Her name is a must in these chicks posts. There is no conversation if Beyonce isn’t included. 19 years of slayage.

    • @HUH? October 21, 2015

      Chile, bye. Beyoncé’s singles flop left and right. The only thing that’s really keeping her alive are these festivals being streamed and her features on OTHER people’s songs.

      • Huh? October 21, 2015

        Beyonce doesn’t have to promote boo. Her talent is keeping her alive b****. After 18 years, you anti Beyonce clowns have to find another excuse. Beyonce barely does features. Have a seat

  24. OMG Logic!!! October 21, 2015

    #DEATH @ Minnie Mouse Jackson getting praise for stopping something that shouldn’t have been happening in the first place. You never saw Grandmadonna or Mariah deleting people’s concert videos.

  25. CelineStan October 22, 2015

    Lmao Mariah should have been deleting videos with her awful live singing kii

    • CelineStan October 22, 2015


  26. Everyone ShutDa Hellup October 22, 2015

    How about everyone shut up arguing on behalf of your artist and goto sleep. Those McDonald’s burgers aren’t going to cook themselves, so y’all can’t be late to work.

    The bigger issue is that everyone nowadays wants everyone to ‘like’ their pic or video or gain followers to somehow fill the voids their vapid personalities create. Rather than ACTUALLY enjoy the concert with your two eyes, you want to experience the event(s) around you through a cell phone screen. That sure is a considerable amount of money you paid to watch something through a little screen, instead of putting it down and actually creating some memories.

    This is coming from someone who likes both Janet and Beyonce. I benefit ZERO going back and forth with anonymous people online about someone who doesn’t need my helo to defend themselves.

    Maybe one day you’ll snap out of it and actually grow up.

  27. Sandra October 22, 2015

    Flopnet should be grateful that people even bothered to show up to her snoozefest concert. She should cherish few fans she has left instead of going around deleting their instagram accounts and videos and pissing them off. BIG mistake there Janet.
    On another note… Flopnet’s Burn It Up didn’t even chart. Not even on the Bubbling Under chart xD

    • @Sandra October 22, 2015

      Sandra is trash. She was actually removing videos at first. The team started removing accounts. Some are still in tact. What an idiot.

  28. Royalkev October 22, 2015

    ^ Cherish the few fans she has left? Snoozefest concert? Janet’s already done at least 15 concerts that seated 15 – 20K people. Several locations she making rounds to already sold out quickly. The reviews on the tour are all wonderful! I don’t think Jan’s worried about her concert being overlooked.

    Anyway, Janet has always been considerate of her fans and it was very thoughtful of her to let everyone know that her team will be handling the situation.

    • Royalkev October 22, 2015

      Btw, BIU is #24 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. It started charting!

  29. Lea October 22, 2015

    The beehive would have got paid dust!

  30. Catchabackhandslap October 22, 2015

    I am lmao at the people who is criticizing somebody who is living a life only others can dream and to even be known by millions when you’re only known by a few if that its really funny that you even think your opinion is relevant lmao

  31. Theman October 22, 2015
