Published: Monday 10th Feb 2020 by Sam

Janet Jackson is back!

The Queen of Pop sprung a surprise on the masses moments ago with the announcement of ‘Black Diamond’ – her new album and tour!

Trumpeting the news, Jackson said:

Hey U Guys! I’ve heard all your wishes and now from my lips to your ears. I’m working on my new album and going on a brand new World Tour this summer! Both titled ✨ “Black Diamond”. ✨

Black Diamonds are the toughest of all the diamonds, the hardest to cut. I see that as the hardest to hurt or destroy. There is a lot that I have endured. I see myself as a Black Diamond in its purest form. I’m a rock, I have ruff edges but I keep moving forward. I want to show you my strength as well as give you strength.

I love u guys so much and I’m #SoExcited to share this new era with you. See u soon! #BlackDiamond 🖤💎😘

The high-energy show will feature an all-new production featuring new music too.

Reps for Janet confirm that European and International dates are incoming.

    Yes, yes and yes! Come on Queen

  6. Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

    The Queen of Pop = madonna.

    She’s gonna lip sync, she can barely dance .

    Madonna is older than her but madonna still performs better than her and madonna sings live also.

    Lots of American dates, will anybody buy these tickets? I’m not sure.

    • Kenny February 10, 2020

      Madonna cancelled shows. Her f***** up old ass knee.

      • Boytoy1814 February 11, 2020

      Sis, Janet can outperform your fav at almost 54 and her last album sold more and debuted higher. Janet will be around forever. Not everyone has that to their credit. To ur credit you tried but even Justin Bieber slays ur fav. Stop it.

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        U are comparing Camila cabello to janet Jackson, are u not a clown.

        U are turning out to be the biggest clown on this blog, u may even over take @onlyfacts
        😂😂😂😂

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        Sorry sis that’s your title. You can’t read one of the greatest talents of all time when you stan a reality talent show girl group member. The reads write themselves sis.

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        Its official, ur the clown of TGJ
        U have dethroned @onlyfacts
        🤡🤡🤡🤡

        Congratulations

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        Sorry sis. I’d be confused too if I stanned a reality show girl group member. But go awf.

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        Girl, ur still talking
        😂😂😂

        U made a fool of urself by comparing Camila to janet.

        Hold the L.
        I thought @onlyfacts was the biggest fool on this blog but damn was I wrong.

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        Sis I’d be confused too If I came into a conversation about legends with Stan credentials of reality show girl group contestants. Average reality show girl group contestants. Confusion all around, sis. Dear in head lights tea.

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        Stanning for a reality show contestant and coming for a legend.. That is THEE L.

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        Hold the L

        Comparing a 56 year old legend to Camila who has been in the game for only 3 years

        Clown behaviour
        Hold this L

        U thought u did something did u?
        The clownery……

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        Coming for one of the greatest Artists of all time with classic everything, when you basically stan a Mexican k.michelle (reality show singer)…. go awf sis

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        A troll will never take their L in peace.

        Who mentioned Camila? Not me, it was u cause ur insecure .
        Comparing janet to Camila, ur a whole clown

        Comparing Janet to Camila

        Hold ur L

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        Nobody will ever compare Janet to a reality show contestant. Know your level of credentials sis and Stay on your lower echelon. What you won’t do is bring Mexican Tamar to a Janet Jackson anything

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        “Nobody will ever compare Janet to a reality show contestant.”

        But girl that what u did.
        I never mentioned Camila, u did.
        Never compared Camila to Janet cause that will be dumb, but u did cause u are dumb.
        😂😂😂
        The clownery….

        A clown can never realise when they are wrong or when they have lost an argument.

        Take ur L and move on.
        🤣

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        I didn’t compare them. Because that isn’t physically possible. I simply reminded a lessor that of which she represents. People do it to Khia all the time. She’s another lessor who reads with no credentials. So basically ur TGJ’s khia.

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        “I didn’t compare them. ”

        Yes u did.

        Sorry Khia. I know you’re confused. You have been this entire post. Praying for ur healing sis

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        These are ur words

        “Sis, Janet can outperform your fav at almost 54 and her last album sold more and debuted higher. Janet will be around forever.”

        Take ur L
        🤡🤡🤡

        U want the last word, take it.
        Ur the winner
        😭😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        I stated a fact. No comparison necessary. But regardless of me stating facts or not, the topic of the the original comment is still the same. You stan a reality show contestant- you can never come for Janet. Which you tried, and failed.

    • Highbrowthis February 10, 2020

      Are you kidding me? Everything that’s happening today in America, the State of the World, has all been outlined by Janet in her albums. Madonna road every trend and continues to ride every trend. All you have to do is look at the features on her latest album. It’s clear that Madonna is phasing out and is now seen as a woman hungry for power rather than one who knows her place as a Queen. Madonna is H&M Janet is Chanel. Only The cheap and those lacking luxurious details would assign a title of Queen of Pop to Madonna. What the Super Bowl did was try to force Madonna with that title but she has absolutely no class to carry it. Just like trump. And if we are talking about dancing and performance 😳😂 Janet is a Jackson. Enough said.

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        Madonna doesn’t wear drop crotch pants and giant hoodies and sneakers to perform
        😭😭😭😂😂😂😂

        Madonna’s superbowl half time show was ranked the best only behind prince.

        Madonna is older than janet, but madonna keeps slaying her in all sections.

      • Oh plz February 10, 2020

        Oversized hoodies, crotch pants, sneakers > 61-year old geriatric pop star in G-strings, pasties and b*** pads.

    • High Price February 10, 2020

      STFU! SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT ANY OTHER ARTIST but you will NOT disrespect Janet Jackson! Camila can NEVER AND WILL NEVER! Bet on that!

  7. Ari February 10, 2020

    Janet I need you to bring it, musically and tour wise, your creative side seem to take a dip as if you were not interested anymore, I know your up in age but the last tour really showed your age far as dancing, we want big production stage so u dont have to put that much work in, rely on background dancers, your husband cant control your tone of music, you should be liberated, lose about 30 pounds, we want fashion tour costumes, you need sponsors to sponsor your tour, promotion must be at an all time high, janet act like you really here for it this time, get rid of stale gil and preston…..we will be watching

    • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

      Girl I saw SOTW Tour 3 times and metamorphosis and it was spectacular top to bottom. I’ll always be here for that type of production over a huge production to distract from the natural talent. Janet puts on a show.

      • Ari February 10, 2020

        You want to tire janet out I see, I mean why make her put in all that work, work smarter not harder, we know she has natural talent

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        @Ari Janet will do what she sees fit for her level of activity. Janet doesn’t do what she doesn’t want. Janet is Janet

    • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

      Gurl look at that tour poster,does that look like somebody who gives a shot? No
      Her heart is not in it at all

      Even the hair is very 2018.
      She looks disinterested.

      Tour costumes? Lol
      Gurl get ready for those black cròtch drop baggy pants and over size hoodies.
      😂😂😂😂😂

      • Oh plz February 10, 2020

        It’s better seeing GrandMadonna’s 61-year-old ass wearing G-strings, pasties and fake asses. Janet dresses appropriately and looks beautiful in that tour poster. You’re just an ignorant, self-hating TROLL with no taste and even less education.

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        Janet has let herself go.
        😭😂😂😂
        She looks haggard and disorganised on stage.

        I dont want to drag ms. Jackson cause I love her.

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        You can’t drag Janet when you stan Mexican K. Michelle.

      • Clarks0oñ February 10, 2020

        @jasmine

        Take ur L.
        😭😭😭😭

        Go make those multiple fake Clarkson profiles.
        I’m surprised I’ve stop seeing those fake Clarkson profiles.
        😂😂😂

        U are finally taking ur meds

      • Now Control This! February 10, 2020

        The tour poster is stunning.

      • only facts February 10, 2020

        @ohplz, once again, ignore this inbred. He’s calling Janet ugly yet stans someone with uneven teeth, an uneven jawline, and has her legs open on both of her album covers because she’s insecure so she figured “let me open my legs to get attention”. And let’s not forget the articles showing that his faves tour is a certified disaster. He’s trying to convince himself that this girl is something special, because he knows the GP doesn’t care about her. He’s as insecure as she is, otherwise he wouldn’t feel the need to post about her in every article. So, just ignore the loser and let him talk to himself. Don’t waste your time arguing with someone who cannot get a top 40 hit without a feature. The jokes write themselves.

      • dee February 10, 2020

        I hate to agree with you but its true. Lack of stage production and hammer pants trying to disquise the weight gain. Get it together Janet. Don’t go half stepping.

  8. Diabeetus Unbothered February 10, 2020

    Tour kicks off June 24th which inevitably means that on June 23rd SOMEONE idk who will be suffering from Streep Throat exhaustion fatigue dehydration (and cancel tour) 😂😂😂

    I bet ANY amount of money that Janet will NOT be present on every single one of those dates. That’s IF Tickets even sale lol

    • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

      Well you know beyonce will be attending one of the shows, as she ALWAYS does and has. With pen and notepad in hand.

      • Diabeetus Unbothered February 10, 2020

        Beys Twin SHAKIRA is touring this summer. Bey (and everyone else) will most likely be there instead… Not watching sum washed up FLOP pushing 60 with a dislocated Hip perform lame OUTDATED songs like Control lol!

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        Sorry sis. Beyonce was on camera at Janets last three tours. She even brought Blue Ivy to show her who her mamas idol is, and then she dressed up as her for Halloween the following year. You can’t read your favs blueprint- ever. That is your favs, fav. Lol

    • PinotNoir February 10, 2020

      Snorted my whiskey! 😂

    • olusheyi banjo February 10, 2020

      Shut you hating b****. No one will pay 2 cents to see you. It’s always the people that can’t do s*** that always hate.

  9. Gee February 10, 2020

    Janet is an entertainment icon, she has transcended eras. I am sure that is a labor of love for her fans. Hopefully her fans will enjoy this ride, and experience.

    • PinotNoir February 10, 2020

      This reads like a press release written by a record label exec.

  10. PinotNoir February 10, 2020

    Divorce $$$ not enough? 🤔

    Glad new songs inspired her again . . . though dubious she has something to say that’s relatable like knee joint pain, minimum wage, or bad credit. 😁

    Singing about snatched waists, snatching wigs, and wet $natches is best done by female impersonators and retired-today/rehired-tomorrow pop’n hop femcees nowadays. 😉

    We want originality or nada.

    • Keith February 10, 2020

      Constructive comments are one thing, the shade is not necessary. Either you are with her or you aren’t…in which case there are better ways to use your time.

      • PinotNoir February 10, 2020

        I’m on vacation, hun. My time, its use, my biz. I hope your b*tt plug doesn’t drill further up north every time I opine here bcuz Alexa, play Miley’s 《We Can’t Stop》!

    • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

      Janet is originality. She marches to the beat of her own drum and does exactly what Janet wants. Always has, always will. And she didn’t get any money from the divorce which is why her net worth is still in the 200 millions.

      • PinotNoir February 10, 2020

        Oh, she didn’t pocket the $500M.? So, she’s touring bcuz she needs the money. Ok. Got it, thanks. Get it, sis.

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

        Yes because $220 million screams “I need money”. Right

  11. olusheyi banjo February 10, 2020

  21. Paulo February 10, 2020

    Yaaaaaaaasssss! Why is #SoExcited in hashtag form tho? Is that the name of the new single? Is she remixing the one from 20 yo? 🤔

  22. dee February 10, 2020

    I’m wondering who is encourging Janet to go on tour this soon. Janet is overweight and without new music to promote a tour. Does she need the money?

    • POPS Muva February 10, 2020

      LMAOOOOOO

    • Chileplease February 10, 2020

      Did you miss the part about the album? Too busy trying to be “shady”?

    • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

      Except the part she announced her new album titled “black diamond” 🤦🏿‍♀️

    • Keith February 10, 2020

      @Dee: What 19th century touring paradigm do you speak from? If you study the industry, you know that the money to be made for legendary acts THESE DAYS is in touring. And with a catalogue like Janet’s, she can play dates for awhile. Now don’t get me wrong, I want new music as much as the next fan but it is no longer necessary to promote a tour. Just give a good show (which she is more that capable of) and engage social media properly…

      • dee February 10, 2020

        I know you really want to believe what you wrote. Janet has toured at least 3 times not including festivals, fairs(kidding) with the same material. This is a now generation. They and I want something new, fresh, relevant, and popping.

    • Jeans February 10, 2020

      She can lose weight!

  23. eric February 10, 2020

    She’s come to my city for every tour since Velvet Rope, but she skipped us this time. 🙁

  24. AnonymousTruth February 10, 2020

    I love Janet … but I feel like she needs to chill . This all seems so soon and rushed .

    I Hope she doesn’t do a Madonna and end up cancelling a show every other night .. it’s just weird to me. Hopefully this album actually does well …

    • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 10, 2020

      Soon and rushed? She hasn’t had an album in 5 years, sis. Chill.

  25. Ok girl! February 10, 2020

    Ok I’m excited! But does this mean a surprise new single performance on fallon? If she is going on fallon to announce the tour, well then its nothing to be surprised about anymore…….hopefully there will be a song release tonight.

    Side note: should black diamond hit #1 upon release, Janet will be come the 1st artist to have a number 1 album in 5 consecutive decades!!!

    • Keith February 10, 2020

      I know I will do my part in helping her reach that milestone!!!!

    • dee February 10, 2020

      That is not accurate. Barbara Striesand has number one albums in 6 decades.

      • Ok girl! February 10, 2020

        My mistake…..first black artist to achieve such status. You happy now? 😉

  26. Jeans February 10, 2020

    So ready to see her on Jimmy Fallon tonight

  27. Wtf smh February 11, 2020

    I love Janet but after watching her on Fallon it was like why annouce the tour today before your appearance on the show if that was your purpose to only announce the tour? Could have gave us a bit more JJ, just saying! It was all over radio stations and a good number of websites already. And girl leave your hair down, it makes your face way too tight!

    • Jeans February 11, 2020

      Braids up in a ponytail makes most faces look tight, especially around the eyes!!!

  28. Jeans February 11, 2020

    She looked great on Jimmy Fallon!

  29. Boytoy1814 February 11, 2020

    YAAAAAAAS!!!!!
