The trailer for Janet. is finally here.

Shared on the megawatt vocalist’s social media just over a day ago, in the trailer Jackson simply states, “This my my story, told by me — not through someone else’s eyes.”

“This is the truth. Take it or leave it. Love it or hate it. This is me.”

The documentary is set to air as a two-night event in two-hour segments, making the documentary four hours in total. It will run simultaneously on both Lifetime and A&E, the two networks that made the project possible in collaboration with Jackson.

Both networks previously shared that “no subject” was “off limits” for the five-time Grammy winner while filming, reports New York Daily News

In May 2020, MADAMENOIRE shared that the documentary will detail Jackson’s life story, from her days as a child star to the success of her music, the controversy surrounding her 2004 Super Bowl performance with Justin Timberlake, her relationships (familial, romantic, professional), and more.
