It will no doubt be a great year for Janet as it was recently revealed that she is set to receive the Icon Award at this year's Billboard Music Awards. "I believe in all the different methods of help - smart psychology, vigorous exercise and honest spirituality". "[Missy Elliott is] an incredible artist who has been there for me as a loyal friend and strong sista, did a fabulous remix on "Son of a Gun" from All for You, leading to our video together".
She continues, "I am blessed". I was discovering freedom in physical pleasure and loved writing about sexuality.
For a lot of men, Janet Jackson was probably their very first celebrity crush, whether they saw her on "Different Strokes" as Charlene or on "Fame" as Cleo.

"I think that was the main point is for the group and mass of people to come together and try to be positive in such a world we live in now".
"Love is limitless and for someone like me, raised in show business where self-concern is always a priority, how fortunate I am now to be concerned, first and foremost, with the welfare of someone else", Jackson added."Day after day and night after night, holding my baby in my arms, I am at peace. I feel bliss. In those moments, all is right with the world". I'm glad I'm not methodical or self-conscious as a writer. It's music that drowns out those voices that say I'm not enough. "I don't want to strain or stress". Spontaneity is so important to me. When I finally get to the music that genuinely expresses what I'm experiencing in the moment, I feel free. "Its healing properties are extraordinary". "Motivation is something I treasure", she muses. I'm surrounded with a team of dancers, singers and musicians I love. "Now more than ever, performing, whether in the studio or onstage, brings me a satisfaction I find nowhere else".
The release of Jackson's Billboard cover comes just a day after the singer's 56th birthday, and she couldn't help but gush over her fans and their kind messages in a heartfelt Instagram post. I'm a believer. I know that God has absolute control.
