Is Janet Jackson Heading To Las Vegas?
There are rumors circulating that Janet Jackson is planning a Las Vegas residency.

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire! Rumors have been circulating about Janet Jackson staging a comeback since mid-2014, so it wasn’t a complete surprise when she confirmed her imminent return in a video announcement. However, the scope of her plans are a little unexpected. Damita Jo isn’t dropping greatest hits compilation or delivering a one-off performance. The pop icon promises new music and a world tour.

“I promised you’d hear it from my lips and now you will,” the 49-year-old said in reference to a tweet she composed in 2014. “This year — new music, a world tour, a new movement. I’ve been listening, let’s keep the conversation going.” Janet last toured in 2011 with Number Ones, Up Close And Personal, while seven long years have passed since her last studio album (2008’s underrated Discipline). With Madonna and Mariah Carey back in the game, 2015 is shaping up to be a banner year for iconic divas!
