Miss Jackson If You’re Nasty! Janet’s 15 Sexiest Pics

Janet Jackson Confirms New Album
Yes! Janet Jackson confirms that she's working on new music and a world tour. Watch.

The return of Janet Jackson is shaping up to be one of the biggest pop music events of 2015. The 49-year-old almost broke the internet (yes, I know it’s not actually possible) with her #ConversationsInACafe video, which announced her comeback plans. Long-time collaborator Jimmy Jam then confirmed that new music was indeed on the way via a cryptic tweet and dates for the enduring diva’s Unbreakable World Tour were announced yesterday (June 15).

To celebrate the pop icon’s very welcome return, I’ve whipped together a gallery of pics from her sexiest photo shoots. Which wasn’t exactly hard. With the exception of perhaps Madonna, no other female artist has embraced their sexuality as proudly and passionately as Janet Jackson. She has posed topless more frequently than Miley Cyrus, scandalized the world by freeing her nipple at the Super Bowl and delivered one of the most iconic magazine covers of all time. Click through the pics up top.
