Janet Jackson Announces “State Of The World Tour”

Janet Jackson Announces “State Of The World Tour”

Janet Jackson launched a mysterious countdown clock on her official website. Once the countdown was over, a video message appeared from the entertainer. In the 1-minute clip, Jackson gives a recap of recent life events. She confirms her divorce from Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana and gushes over their newborn baby, Eissa. "I thank God for him, you guys. He's so healthy, so beautiful, so sweet, so loving, such a happy baby," Jackson said.

Jackson then digresses to her main announcement. The youngest Jackson sibling reveals that she’s resuming her four-month tour and renaming it “State of the World Tour.” “It’s not about politics,” she explained in the video. “It’s about people, the world, relationships, and just love… I cannot wait to see you on stage.”
