Name: Janet Jackson
Birth Date: May 16, 1966
Birth Place: Gary, Indiana, USA
Janet has long
ago broken out of her namesake, to become one
of the greatest entertainers of the 20th century,
all on her own.
Her long-anticipated '90s comeback with The
Velvet Rope and most recently All For You were
far from disappointments for the fans she won
over in the '80s, living up to and even surpassing
the expectations Control and Rhythm Nation 1814
created. Janet is no longer Michael's little
Paul McCartney's sister Ruth never escaped it.
Mick Jagger's brother Chris didn't have much
success either. Neither for that matter did
most siblings who had to escape the enormous
shadow cast by their famous siblings. All except
one artist, who not only escaped the shadow
of success of her brother, but in many ways
cast her own shadow. Her name is Janet Jackson.
Janet Damita Jo Jackson (born May 16, 1966)
is an American singer-songwriter, producer,
dancer and actress. She is the youngest child
of the Jackson music family and the sister of
pop icon Michael Jackson. Breaking away from
the shadow of her famous brother, Janet Jackson
now ranks as the ninth most successful artist
in the history of rock and roll according to
Billboard in 2004. Jackson initially stepped
into the limelight as a young actress, appearing
in television shows. Jackson is well-known for
her detailed dance choreography and music videos.
Jackson set out to find her own identity. She
collaborated with producers Jimmy Jam and Terry
Lewis, and the trio created Jackson's breakout
album, Control (1986) and the socially-focused
follow-up, Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989). In the
early 1990s, Jackson signed a record-breaking
recording deal with Virgin Records for the sexually-charged
album janet. (1993), which was a greater success
than its two predecessors. Jackson also returned
to acting, starring in Poetic Justice (1993).
A greatest-hits album, Design of a Decade 1986/1996
was released in 1995, and her second album released
under Virgin Records, The Velvet Rope, was released
While filming Nutty Professor II: The Klumps
(2000), Jackson continued to work on All for
You (2001), which gained success on the Billboard
In 2004, Jackson made headlines for her Super
Bowl halftime show performance during a duet
with Justin Timberlake when he exposed Jackson's
right breast—Timberlake later apologized.
The event became a media controversy and put
a damper on the release of her album Damita
Jo (2004), which failed to yield any hit singles.
Jackson is currently dating and collaborating
with producer Jermaine Dupri, with whom she
worked on her latest album, 20 Y.O., which was
released in September 2006.
In 2006, it was announced that Jackson was the
"Most Searched on the Internet," and,
"The Most Searched for News Item,"
in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The 25-year-old Brazilian model boasts three
significant long-term contracts--Victoria's
Secret, Maybelline and Telecom Italia Mobile,
Italy's mega-cellphone carrier. The former girlfriend
of rocker Lenny Kravitz is now reportedly dating
Prince Wence of Lichtenstein, heir to a royal
fortune Forbes estimates at $4 billion.
