Singer Janet Jackson has been pretty quiet for most of 2007 but a recently posted message on her official website has many thinking that the singer’s imposed seclusion after the failure of her 20 Y.O album might be over. Janet speaks of her new movie with Tyler Perry, an invite only mini concert at the Atlantis – Phase III opening on May 11th., as well as special performances in London and Cannes. Her boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri, also posted on his My Space page that Janet would have a single on the Rush Hour 3 soundtrack that he is producing.

Its been more than too long since we’ve spoken? How is your life going? All is well with me. There’s so much to update u on. Where do I start? Well, I just finished filming the new Tyler Perry movie, “Why Did I Get Married?” It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film. Its an ensemble cast that includes Richard T. Jones, Jill Scott, Malik Yoba, Tasha Smith, Michael Jai White, Sharon Leal and Tyler Perry – who wrote, produced and directed the movie. I play an educated author & psychologist who writes about love, marriage and relationships and counsels as well. Its a great departure 4 me from my other roles and I can’t wait for u to see the movie when it opens later this year.
Have u seen my Vibe Vixen cover? I LOVE it! The story was great and I love the photos the fabulous Ruven Afanador shot. I’m also on the cover of famed photographer Michel Haddi’s new magazine, Sly & Chic. We shot it in the Hollywood Hills a few months ago – real classic Hollywood style – a totally different look. The magazine should be on stands in the states in a couple of weeks – I hope u like it.
On the music side, I’ve been in crazy rehearsals preparing for my performance at the Atlantis – Phase III opening on May 11th. I’m performing a mini concert and planning to enjoy the Bahamas with the kids. Then I’m off to Europe to do an event in Cannes and London. I hope you are preparing to have a great summer and I promise to keep in better touch.
Miss u! Luv, Janet
