Janet Jackson Announces She’s Going Back On Tour The Most Mommy Way Possible

Her baby's never out of sight or mind.

Published July 4, 2018

Janet Jackson took to Instagram on The 4th to let us know how she’s doing after her father Joe passed away last week.

  1. “Hey, you guys, it’s been a pretty rough week,” the singer said in an IG video clip, referring to her dad who died on June 27 of pancreatic cancer at the age of 89. Luckily for her (and us) she’ll be using music to help cope with the profound loss.

    “But we’re excited. I’m excited,” she continued, referencing her State of the World tour she will soon continue on. “We cannot wait to see you. And it’s been way too long. I miss you guys way too much. I’m about to jump on this plane and start this tour.

  2. “Like I said, I can’t wait to see you,” she continued, before being interrupted by her 19 month-old child. “Those are my baby’s footsteps you hear, my baby Eissa. All right, honey, alright, sweetie, OK. I’m right here. I love you, I’ll see you soon.”

    Yesterday, Janet posted a throwback picture of her as a very young child with her father. She also attended Joe’s funeral on Monday, July 2 alongside her mom, Katherine Jackson, siblings LaToya, Marlon, Jermaine and Rebbie Jackson, and Michael’s son Blanket.
