Exclusive: Janet Jackson Chats With Bossip

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Janet took time out of her hectic schedule to chat with Bossip recently. Although she remained tight-lipped on the topics of her alleged child with former hubby, questions about her sexuality, and the inside scoop on her relationship with Jermaine Dupri, she did manage to tell us a little about her upcoming Rock Witchu Tour and future plans:

Bossip: It’s been 7 years since you’ve been on tour. Why have you chosen to

go on tour at this point in time?

Janet: I was in tour rehearsals on the last album when the new label [Def Jam] asked if I would consider putting the tour on hold because they wanted a new album quickly. They wanted me to wait until after the release of Discipline [to tour].

Bossip: Will this Rock Witchu Tour be your last?

Janet: If the Stones can keep going being in their 60’s, then I can too. I’m not saying I will, just saying I can.

Bossip: You’ve had a remarkable career, what’s your vision for the future?

Janet: Music, more acting, producing film and TV projects. I have a show coming out toward the later part of the year and I have a book coming around November about my journey through weight gain and loss – and what method I use to control it.

And by the way, all that noise about Janet’s European tour being canceled is totally false. Tickets go on sale this weekend for Janet’s Rock Witchu Tour. And although it’s been 7 years, we’re sure it’ll be worth the wait. Much more to come as her tour draws near……

    Washed up.

    Maybe she might want to snatch those masks of her nephew’s and neice’s faces.

    What’s between Michael Jackson and a cult?

    Cult members drink bleach to die.

    Michael uses bleach to dye.

    You got the opportunity to talk to an “Icon” like her and you just asked 3 questions?

    Yeah right, where’s the rest of the interview?

    You need to ask her why was she on that “Bust it Baby” Remix?

    (…”Ms. Jackson if you nasty”)

    *But you know what she did do a song with Khia…

    Oh yeah, I wanna know when she’s gonna work with other people besides her man Jer-lame Dupri…

    Because when they (Janet & Dupri) get together they make NO hits, unlike when JD works with Mariah…

  • Aunt Viv

    Ho-hum. I’m a little disappointed about the quality of this interview. Where were the probing questions? Nothing new was revealed.

    And she really should consider giving up on appealing to the “106th & Park” crowd and doing the Vegas circuit as I’ve said before. Get paid like Celine and Cher.

  • heart2heart

    That’s it? That’s the interview? Okay, well, uh, I’m glad the European leg of the tour was not cancelled. Happy for her fans over there, they love her just as much as fans here in the U.S. I haven’t seen a Janet concert in 14 years! I will be seeing Janet when she comes here to Oakland in September! Can’t wait!

  • Azdelish

    I am so tired of Janet. She needs to go ahead and retire wasn’t she just dropped from her record company for lack of sales not too good for the ego…. and she tries too hard does not need to do all that I just think it is sad take your millions and settle down with your little man.

  • heart2heart

    Retiring is not in her Jackson Blood.

  • RiveGauche2006
