Janet Jackson Dishes on ‘Black Diamond’ Album & Tour, Motherhood, & More on ‘Tonight Show’ [Watch]

Published: Tuesday 11th Feb 2020 by Rashad

Fraught with excitement, fans of Janet Jackson – affectionately called the #JanFam – probably got no sleep Monday night (February 10) waiting for the diva’s appearance on the late night talk show circuit to air.

Visiting ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ (her first stop at the show since rocking the house with a live performance of single ‘Made for Now’ in 2018), Jackson dished on 3-year-old son Eissa, her recently announced ‘Black Diamond’ album and tour (click here to read more), and even took a walk down memory lane to reflect on the successes of her breakthrough album, ‘Control,’ and magnum opus, ‘Rhythm Nation.’

Did you miss any of the action?  It awaits inside:

    QUEEN OF POP IS RULING ON THEM 🖤

      Thank God – SHE finally looks skinny AFTER DRESSING like a Christian for 7 years=boring. Janet’s Image is S_exy and Edgy. NOT MC hammer Pajama pants and turtle necks. Great Performer

        Janets image was covered up during control, 1/2 of velvet rope, discipline, rhythm nation. Over half her career she’s been covered up sis neck to foot. You must be very young

    When she says “It’s Janet” at 3:29…..OMG! ICONIC! 🙂 She is looking like JUSTICE from the movie!

    Regina King: “this is good gurl” *stroking the braids* haha

        I tear up at that moment! It was so powerful for cinema! A positive day and outcome for a young, strong, gifted, talented, blessed and beautiful black woman. You knew she would go on to be successful in life and anything she put her beautiful mind to! That she would actually find love and true happiness! Because (and I re-quote the poem) “she’s a woman. Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman. That’s she”. The way Tupac looked at her…..it was just beautiful! 🙂 I give the movie 4 stars!

        Critics didn’t want young black adults to see that truth! But Roger Ebert did. This is why I ride hard for Roger Ebert. Quote from his beautiful review of Poetic Justice: “Yes, things are hard. But they aren’t impossible. Sometimes they’re wonderful. And sometimes you can find someone to share them with.” 🙂

    Jesus christ, she looks huge

    Girl ,u better lose that weight before the tour starts.
    We asked for Janet jackson not lizzo

    What did she do to her cheeks? So huge.
    Janet pls stop messing with ur face.

    The entire Jackson kids suffer from body dysmorphia. They all hate the way they were born.

    • Keith February 11, 2020

      Do you REALLY just hit everyone’s post just to crap on them? Sad…

    • Mimi fan February 11, 2020

      Clarkson gurl, you betta stop with that weight shaming sh!+! Yah know what I mean. I “like” Camila, don’t get me wrong. Like is the key word.

      But don’t come for our black queens okay? We only have few of them. I know you don’t wanna tolerate mediocrity but please be careful with your choice of words or terms.

      • Clarks0oñ February 11, 2020

        Sorry if u felt offended

        Janet is a queen and she will slay this tour.

        Wishing her and her son the best.
        Thanks for u constructive criticism

    It’s amazing that Janet at 53, after all her world wide success and accuse is still so shy. Love you Queen!

    • DeanD February 11, 2020

  10. Ari February 11, 2020

    This era feels forced rushed and uninspired, and janet weight is a little bit heavier

    • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine February 11, 2020

      She hasn’t had an album in 5 years, girl. Yeah.. “rushed” 🤦🏿‍♀️🙄

  11. Keith February 11, 2020

  12. Kenny February 11, 2020
