Yesterday, the legendary, chart-topping, show-stopping, and multi-platinum recording artist, Janet Damita Jo Jackson (Ms. Jackson, if you're nasty), made an epic announcement via social media. Her fans have been excitingly anticipating this news since the unexpected break from her "Unbreakable World Tour".

Janet took a much needed hiatus to grow her family and thoroughly enjoy the first year of motherhood. Upon revealing that news just a year prior, fans were shocked, excited and slightly disappointed within reason, about not seeing the incomparable, multi-Grammy-award winning icon perform live on the initially set ticket date.

When the timing was right, fans trusted that Ms. Jackson would over deliver in true Janet style and in control, which is exactly what she did. Over the span of her wildly successful four-decade career, and counting, Ms. Jackson's fandom has much to look forward to, come this fall. In life "balance" and "priorities" are key and we are so glad Ms. Jackson took care of her health, her baby, and did what she needed to do.

In her personal video statement below, Janet briefly shares a glimpse of the status of her private life and we wish her an abundance of love, healing, and respect for her privacy. She also announces details of her returning to the stage with previously set dates and added dates for the newly renamed "State of the World Tour", set to begin 7th September.
