Janet Jackson literally comes from the music royal family. She has extended the legend of the Jackson family positively through her strong powerful voice and a performance that could only be matched by her brother, the King of Pop himself. She has a very successful acting career with several Tyler Perry produced and directed movies, Why Did I Get Married, the sequel Why Did I Get Married, Too, and the 2011 hit For Colored Girls. She recently released her first book True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself. “The Baby Sister” has broken free of that name by creating a legacy of her own through versatility of music, dance, and performances on the silver screen.
Jackson will be performing at PNC Pavilion at Riverbend on Thursday August 11th bringing her “Number Ones” tour to town.
Janet is extremely private in her personal life but we were able to catch up with her via email to talk about her book and her upcoming tour performance in Cincinnati.
Amy: What is a normal day for Janet Jackson?
Janet: That depends on what is going on in my life. One thing that is consistent is that I start every day with a prayer to God.
Amy: You have played in Cincinnati before on previous tours. Any significant memories?
Janet: Yes, if I remember correctly, I was in Cincinnati for the Rhythm Nation, JANET and Velvet Rope tours. The one thing that stands out most for me is how wonderful the people are. I can’t wait to get back and see all my fans there.
