Janet Jackson has recently added even more tour dates to her “Number Ones: Up Close & Personal World Tour”. Many of the pop singer’s concert dates have sold out in mere minutes which have led to the addition of more stops and dates. Now, Janet has announced the addition of more dates in Europe. She said “I have been spending a lot of time in Europe lately. Everyone has been so kind to me. I can’t wait to get on stage and show my love for all my fans that have supported me all of these years.” Janet will be in Paris on June 26, 27 and 28, London on June 30, July 2 and 3, and Monte Carlo on July 8 and 9.

When tickets for Janet Jackson’s April 14 concert in Los Angeles went on sale this past Friday morning, tickets ended up getting sold out within 10 minutes. A spokesman for Live Nation said that they had to add another date for April 15 to keep up with the demand. The Number Ones, Up Close and Personal Tour is the pop singer’s first tour since 2008’s Rock Witchu Tour, which had several problems due to poor ticket sales. If the LA dates were anything to go by, Janet’s upcoming tour shouldn’t have any problems. It just goes to show that Janet still has what it takes.
Ne-Yo could wants to collaborate with Janet Jackson to make a tribute in memory of her brother and declared that it would be a “disrespect” to ask someone else to sing the songs he wrote for this tribute. Michael Jackson asked Ne-Yo to write enough songs for an album before he died last summer. The King of Pop was not able to record songs, but Ne-Yo still wants fans to be able to listen to them, and hope that Janet will accept to sing songs. “I tried to figure out what to do with these songs. I can not give them to anyone because they were written for Michael. It would be a lack of respect. I thought it would be a good idea if I could persuade Janet and her brothers to sing these songs” told Ne-Yo to The Sun.
Janet Jackson returned to the concert stage last week with a 30-song set during the opening night of the 2010 Essence Music Festival at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. It’s been two years since the pop icon performed on a concert stage and if her performance at the festival was anything to go by, the hiatus definitely did her well and she made it well worth the wait. It’s definitely good to have her back! In addition to Janet, the festival lineup includes Gladys Knight, Mary J. Blige, Monica, Keri Hilson and Alicia Keys.
Since his last night on American Idol has just expired, Simon Cowell did a bit of reminiscing beforehand… at the request of his former girlfriend, Terry Seymour. Simon Cowell remembered the good times and the bad times of the past years on American Idol and he also spoke about Paula Abdul’s impending visit to the show: “I sent her a note saying I was actually pleased that somebody has built a show around her. It proves her star power and Paula is a survivor. She’s much smarter than people know. What I said is, and I literally mean this, I would welcome her on any of my shows. Anytime.” If Simon Cowell manages to get Paula Abdul on “any of his shows”, than American Idol truly is done for. At this point she might be the show’s last hope.

The singer said “He was the one who was administering. I think he should be responsible.” Janet also talks about the day she found out about the King of Pop’s death. She said “I told them to call me back when they got to the hospital. And I remember thinking, nobody’s calling me back, so I tried calling again and that’s how I found out he was no longer… I couldn’t believe it. It just didn’t ring true to me. It felt like a dream… its still difficult for me to believe. Its, you know, you have to accept what it is.”

Stars including Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Chaka Khan, Sean Diddy Combs, Tyra Banks, Kanye West, Jay-Z and Queen Latifah all offered condolences to the Jackson family as they performed on the show.
It looks like Janet Jackson is about to try her luck in Japan. Miss Nasty’s mystery illness has forced her to scrap 7 US Tour dates which supposedly count not be rescheduled due to conflicts. A new report has emerged though saying that she’s taking her show on the road to Japan. Janet is apparently set to do her first tour of Japan in 7 years in February 2009. She’ll do four dates in the country between February 14th and 22nd. Janet was having lots of difficulty selling tickets and filling arenas in America. Maybe she’s hoping to have better luck in Japan.
