Jackson, Al Mana marry


When asked if they were engaged, Jackson says she and Al Mana were already married in a secret ceremony.

The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet.

Jackson, Dupri break up

Jackson confirms that she and Dupri are no longer an item. Despite their break up, Jackson still remains close friends with Dupri.

Jermaine is one of my best friends. I love him to death. We’re still connected. We’re still good friends. We still talk. We’re there for one another. I think it will remain that way for the rest of my life.

I don’t know if I’ll get married again.I’ll put it like this: If God wants me to, then I will. I’ve had people ask me out. I haven’t entertained any offers thus far, but I’m locking myself in my work right now.

‘I dont talk to Justin’

Jackson does not speak to Timberlake anymore after their 2004 Super Bowl performance. After her breast was revealed on national television in front of millions, Jackson received a lot of backlash and Timberlake did not come to her defense, as she felt a friend should.

We haven’t spoken. But I consider him a friend, and I’m very loyal, and friendship is very important to me. He has reached out to speak with me. Like I said, friendship is very important to me – and certain things you just don’t do to friends. And in my own time, I’ll give him a call.

Superbowl ‘Wardrobe malfunction’

I am sorry if anyone was offended by the wardrobe malfunction during the halftime performance at the Super Bowl. It was not intentional and is regrettable.

Janet Jackson interview


Jackson is interviewed by Hall on The Arsenio Hall Show. They talk about her shyness off stage, where the concept for Rhythm Nation comes from, and the design of her album cover.

The record company begged me to do it in color but I didn’t want to I wanted it to be in black and white. For one it’s very dramatic, the main reason is that all us being the video we’re all different shades of gray. There’s no this color or that.
