Janet Jackson isn't letting a new baby or divorce keep her from performing: the 50-year-old pop icon and new mother will make good on her postponed tour dates and return to the arena stage September 7.
Jackson had previously delayed her Unbreakable World Tour when news broke that she was expecting with then-husband, Wissam Al Mana. Now, she's back, with a new son, Eissa, and a divorce on its way through court.
In a video announcement declaring her stage return, Jackson explained that indeed, her and Al Mana had split up, and that “We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.” She also revealed she'd changed the name of her upcoming tour to State of the World, explaining: "It’s not about politics. It’s about people, the world, relationships and just love.”
