Janet Jackson to Tour This March
Tue, 11 Jan 2011 10:32:01
Janet Jackson is bringing her Number Ones, Up Close and Personal tour to the U.S. and Canada this Spring. The tour's setlist will be pulled exclusively from the hits that appear on Jackson's 2009 compilation Number Ones. Michael Jackson's baby sister has produced a lot of hits over the course of her career, so this is one tour not to be missed, yo.
"These concerts will be different from anything I have ever done. I will be as up close and personal as possible," Jackson said in a statement. "These concerts are not about special effects. This is a love affair between me and those of you who have supported me and my work for all these years. I'll be singing and dancing from my heart. The music will all be songs that you've made number ones for me. Let's go!
Jackson will release True You, a book reflecting on her experience with diet and exercise and her battle with her weight, on February 8th.

What is your favorite Janet Jackson jam? No, my first name ain't "Baby." It's "Janet." "Miss Jackson," if you're nasty!
