Singer Janet Jackson continues to suffer from an illness that has caused her to all but cancel her first North American tour in almost eight years. After canceling three shows last week that her brother Randy attributed to vertigo, the singer has been forced to cancel three more shows, this time in Greensboro, NC, Atlanta, Georgia and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Janet’s publicist sent out e-mails on Saturday saying that the shows were being postponed because she had not fully recuperated from the illness that suddenly struck her last week. The rest of the tour remains up in the air as the publicist also revealed that Janet was due to return home at her doctor’s direction to seek further treatment.
In related Janet news, on September 19th Tyra Banks will air a special on her talk show that will take fans behind the scenes of Janet’s latest tour.
FYI: Wondering what exactly Vertigo is? Read below.
There are two types of vertigo: subjective and objective. There is a subjective vertigo when a person has a false sensation of movement. In the case of objective vertigo, the surroundings appear to move past a person’s field of vision.
The effects of vertigo may be slight. It can cause nausea and vomiting and, in severe cases, it may give rise to difficulties with standing and walking.
