Janet Jackson, 53, Performs Her Hits At A Festival In Australia

She shares her two-year-old son Eissa with her estranged husband Wissam Al Mana. But Janet Jackson proved she can be both a doting mother and a global superstar on Friday as she k!ck-ed off her RNB Fridays Live 2019 tour at HBF Park stadium in Perth. The singer and actress, 53, rocked a loose-fitting all-black jumpsuit featuring a funky diagonal zip and a glittering dot pattern on her shoulders. The singer’s flowing raven tresses were styled in tight curls and she wowed fans with her racy poses.

One saw the All For You h!tmaker rest her hand on her crotch as she swept back her hair and sang into her microphone. The spectacle was boosted further by jets of fire bla*ted at the front of the stage in front of thousands of fans. Janet ended the performance with a cascade of confetti which fell on her doting fans. Her latest outing comes after she explained why she has chosen not to employ a nanny for her son.

Speaking to the H!t Network’s Carrie Bickmore and Tommy Little in Australia, the songstress said while it can be ‘very tiring’, her mother and grandmother also chose not to have any hired help. ‘My mother did it, her mother did it, why not? Why can’t I?’ Janet explained on air. ‘I’m sure I will need someone in the future for some help here and there, but I don’t have anyone, and I love it,’ the five-time Grammy Award-winner continued.

Janet did, however, admit that raising her son while touring the world can be exhausting. ‘It’s very tiring. You never get enough sleep,’ the Rhythm Nation h!t-maker added. Janet met Qatari billionaire Wissam, 44, in 2010 and married in 2012. They welcomed Eissa in January 2017, only to split just three months later. The singer is based in London where her ex-husband also lives.

Janet arrived in Australia this week ahead of her performance at RNB Fridays live 2019. She is joining other RandB icons including Jason Derulo, 50 Cent, The Black Eyed Peas, and Sisqo. She is set to have further shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, and Sydney. Janet, who originally wanted to be a lawyer, told Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph in August that fame isn’t for everybody.

‘You really have to be thick-skinned for this. You can really go in the wrong direction, there’s so much temptation, all kinds of crazy things.’ ‘You really have to be thick-skinned for this. You can really go in the wrong direction, there’s so much temptation, all kinds of crazy things,’ she added.
