After fans complained of having their Instagram accounts deleted for sharing clips from Janet Jackson’s Unbreakable tour, the singer took to social media to apologize for the mishap, and to assure everyone it was never her intention to have Instagram react in such a heavy-handed way.
“My team is passionate about protecting the intellectual property we are creating for the tour and possible future projects,” Janet wrote via Facebook. “It was never their intention, acting on my behalf, to have social media accounts removed.”
“Permitting the use of long clips does present a contractual problem for these projects,” she continued. “Because of that, I hope you understand. I trust the fans will use their short recordings for their own memories and to share on their social media networks of choice.”
Janet also assured fans she would seek to rectify the problem, writing “I have asked my team to change their approach and allow you to engage socially with these videos. I know I wouldn’t be here without the love I stand on.”
Janet’s legal team has been pretty busy this era, contacting websites, including this one, about the S.E.X.L.I.N.E.S single she reportedly recorded some years back. Janet’s team claimed the song was a fake, while producer Seven Aurelius says it is not. Seven’s rep told the New York Post the song is legit and the false claims got his Sound Cloud account deleted as well.
Janet’s team hasn’t responded to Aurelius’ claims, and we doubt they will. Aurelius is a respected producer who has worked with some of the biggest acts in the business, and if he says he produced the song with Janet, then he produced the song with Janet.
