Janet Jackson Makes A Rare Public Appearance, Visits Children At Unicef Refugee Camp In Syria

Beyonce Dressed Up As Janet For Halloween

Janet Jackson has become something of a recluse since marrying Wissam Al Mana. The pop legend shut down rumors of a comeback and has dedicated her time to charitable causes. The baby-faced 48-year-old (how is this possible?) was recently snapped visiting children at Zaatari refugee camp with her billionaire hubby, and she looks absolutely radiant and at peace with her new lifestyle.

While I’m glad Janet has found contentment, I feel like pop music needs her more than ever. A batch of new artists have started to emerge that channel her trademark sound (hello, Tinashe) but nobody has been able to do it as well as Miss Jackson. In fact, you can’t help but think a comeback would be very well-received at the moment given that her speciality — electro-tinged R&B — is now a radio staple. See more pics of the much-missed diva after the jump.
