“Rockwitchu” Tour Remains Up In The Air

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.


  1. It seems like Janet can’t get a break…get well soon.

  2. Man, I hope things get better for Miss Janet.

    It’s so much better to hear something other than “exhaustion”. I get tired of hearing that celebs are exhausted when they have to enter a hospital.

    For 6 gatdamn days??!! :stop:

    I mean, not to say it’s better for Janet to have any other illness/issue but… I’m just sayin- hope she’s 100% real soon

  3. I love jay she gon be okay :bowdown: best entertainer yet! Love u jay!

  4. Vertigo? It very well could be. But I’ve been thinking… I wonder if Janet is gonna have a baby and her doctor wants her to take it easy, chill, and save her strength? I’m not a doctor so I’m only taking a guess. Either way, I want Janet to get well real, real soon. We all love you, Janet.

  5. Hope she gets well soon! I wonder if Vertigo is a cover up for pregnancy. That would good great!!! Come to think of it, I don’t think any of the sisters have children, am I right?

  6. Wow Janet has Vertigo? That must be hard for an entertainer to have! Vertigo is very difficult, I know a young lady who has it and b/c of it she has a live-in friend to help her. Best of luck, to her, feel better Jan 🙁

  7. I certainly wish Janet the best in hope of her recovering fully real soon. She can always reschedule her tour at a later date. Right now her health is far more important. Luv u J.

    MJ & The Golden 80s forever!!!

  8. I can’t defend her anymore because she’s leaving the fans in the wind. She needs to make an official announcement. The cancellation of the shows minutes before are not cutting it. The tour started off with such promise. I just don’t have the energy to deal with this anymore. I have read stories of people traveling from all over to see her tour, to find out it’s postponed. She’s suppose to come to DC next week. I hope she does because if she doesn’t I getting my refund, and putting that money aside for Christmas.

    Eldest Jackson, sister Rebbie age 58, has 2 girls and 1 boy and 1 grandson.

  10. Vertigo has the same signs as pregnancy. I not saying that to be funny but those are the symptoms of first trimester. Did someone just to be sure give her an EPT.

  11. Randy Jackson stated on his myspace page that he didn’t say that Janet has vertigo and that someone made that up.

  12. Get well Jay we love you :brownsista:

  13. Off topic: Rihanna wore the dress that Tyra has on to Clive Davis grammy party earlier this year :brownsista:

  14. S.dot Hey boo! I thinks she is her “sickness” sound a awful lot like mine ^^
