Janet Jackson is back — but she’s almost unrecognizable

Janet Jackson is back — but she’s almost unrecognizable


The picture that was racy came to identify her -baring Super Bowl performance in 2004 shot her exposure a step farther.

After seven years of quiet after the launch of 2008’s “Discipline,” she is back with all the album “Unbreakable,” out Friday.

Maybe the 49-year old opted for a more age-appropriate wardrobe — or perhaps that new appearance has something related to her union to billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana.

The 40-year old co-owner and executive director of conglomerate Al Mana met with Jackson in 2010, and they were wed in a service secret in 2012, their marriage was not made public.

“We adore traveling,” he told entrepreneur.com in 2014. “We love going to fine, exotic locations far far from the planet and from prying eyes.” The pair reside in Doha, Qatar, jetting across the world.

The Sun of London indicated that Jackson had converted to Islam, her husband’s religion, prompting a demure way of functionality.

“On the ‘Velvet Rope’ tour [1998], she pulled up a man in the group and did a lap dance,” remembers Darren Burn, who runs the janet-love.com fan site. “Then she straddled a man in the bunch [while wearing] a PVC catsuit on the ‘All for You’ tour [2001-2002], as well as on the Rock Witchu tour [2008] she got [another audience member] onstage and place him in bondage equipment.”

But reining in her sexual persona that is magnificently onstage does not seem to have changed her power.
It is classic Janet, as well as the remainder of “Unbreakable” finds her continuing because form.
