Production for Janet Jackson’s Unbreakable World Tour has been postponed, Entertainment Tonight reports.

Instead, the singer will be spending time with her father, Joe Jackson, who suffered a stroke while celebrating his 87th birthday in Brazil on Saturday. Reportedly, she plans to remain by his side until he is stable.

Monday, the “No Sleep” singer’s father released a statement from his hospital bed to thank relatives, friends and fans for their support and well wishes.

“To my family, friends, acquaintances and fans all over the world. I want to thank you all for your prayers, unwavering support and kind well wishes during these trying times,” he wrote. “Through God’s intervention the wonderful Doctors, Nurses and caretakers at the Albert Einstein Sao Paulo hospital have taken great care of me. God willing, I should be able to make a quick recovery and travel back home soon. Thank you all once again for your prayers and support.”

So far, Jackson’s tour is still scheduled to kick off in Vancouver exactly one month from today on August 31. No announcements have been about rescheduling at this time.

Pass Or Play? Janet Jackson Is Officially Back (And Looking Like ’93 Janet) In “No Sleeep” Clip Feat. J. Cole

Janet is back and looking like vintage Janet. As in, 1993 “That’s The Way Love Goes” Janet Jackson.

In the video for her new single for her upcoming album (her first in five years), Jackson makes her official comeback looking fresh faced and gorgeous as always. But what makes her comeback much different from other pop stars is that Jackson decided to go the laid back, I’m-going-to-keep-my-clothes-on route and still killed it. No skimpy outfits or body suits. No ab shots. Not even a dance sequence or two. Just Jackson moving around a plush home with images from her childhood plastered on the walls. It’s not what you are expecting, and that’s what makes it all the more interesting. We all get the reminder we need that less is more.

But then again, “No Sleeep” isn’t your ordinary comeback single. It’s mellow and smooth (or as Maxwell would title it, “mellowsmoothe”). One of those songs you two-step to on a nice night out (or in) with your honey. And while the original track was cool, the album version, with a clever as ever verse from rapper J. Cole, is what makes it a worthy jam. Cole even makes an appearance in the video, waxing poetically all over the luxurious home as the rain pours. The visual is directed by Dave Meyers, and when it dropped today, Jackson tweeted “I hope u enjoy watching this as much as we enjoyed making it.”

The song will appear on Jackson’s upcoming 11th studio album, set to drop in September. Before then, the legend will hit the road for her “Unbreakable” world tour, scheduled to start on August 31 in Vancouver.

Check out the video for yourself and let us know, is it a pass or play for you?

By now you probably heard, Janet Jackson has resurfaced and has a planned tour and album ahead. Jackson herself made the news public. She tweeted a hint and directed followers to her website. But did you know Janet is also planning to launch her own label?

Her record label, Rhythm Nation Records, would be established through a partnership with music giant BMG and it will also be on the lookout for up-and-coming artists to sign to the roster, reports The Boombox.

“Thank you to the talented team at BMG, my new artistic home,” Jackson said in a statement. “The opportunity to be creative in music and every form of entertainment has great potential here.”

“The worldwide partnership with Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation will see the release in Fall 2015 of her first as-yet-untitled album and a commitment to pursue the full range of options within the broader Bertelsmann group of which BMG is part. With Rhythm Nation Janet Jackson becomes arguably the first female African-American recording artist to form her own record label. At Rhythm Nation Janet plans to offer a home to both new and established recording artists,” reads the statement.

Janet’s new single should “hit radio and/or online within 30 days,” reports Radio Facts. This will be her first album since 2008’s Discipline, and her 11th studio album.

Jackson, who began her entertainment career at the age of seven, has had sales of more 160 million records worldwide, making her one of the best-selling artists of all time.

When you think of a true unafraid and free rock-star, Janet Jackson comes to mind. For her 49th birthday on May 16, Mommynoire salutes the superstar who has provided us with decades of quality tunes replete with sensual and reaffirming lyrics. Janet has a way of showing black women how to be comfortable with our bodies and admire each curve.

She also represented a sisterhood that we could all appreciate. Remember the early 90s? She was rarely seen without her fly coterie of friends. In 1993, Janet Jackson spoke with Rolling Stone (The Joy of Sex) about intimacy and demanding respect and her comments still ring true decades later. “It’s insulting to be seen as some object,” Janet said “he must call her by name. It’s not a brazen demand – I didn’t want to be obnoxious – but I wanted to be clear. Women want satisfaction. And so do men. But to get it, you must ask for it. Know what you need. Say what you want.Intimacy.”

Demands aside, one thing for sure about Janet Jackson’s catalog of songs is that there’s one for every occasion and mood. We’ve matched some of her biggest hits to match every mood and emotion, take a look:

It’s the job of artists to entertain us, but these stars took things to the next level. The 10 artists included on this list have done everything: offering their fans lap dances, letting them cop a feel, and even kissing them in front of thousands of people. That’s one hell of a way to say thank you for the support! We don’t know how eager we would be to get so close to these stars, but if the fans like it, then I guess we love it…

Janet Jackson

If you didn’t know, Ms. Jackson does this. The Velvet Rope Tour anyone? Janet Jackson has been seducing her male fans and making their fantasies come true for years. The music legend doesn’t see anything wrong with a little bump and grind with her fans, and sometimes, as she did in this video, she sticks her tongue in their mouths…
