Janet Jackson Addresses Fans in Emotional Video: ‘I Was Crying’


“You’re so special to me,” she said.

She added, “And I want to thank all of you for making ‘Control’ number one once again after 35 years. I never, never in a million years, I would never think that this would happen. I really appreciate you and I love you so, so much. Thank you.”

Jackson’s influential Control album, released on Feb. 4, 1986, just celebrated its 35th anniversary.

Her latest message to fans comes a day after Timberlake — her former co-star at the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, where her breast was exposed by Timberlake on live television in what was deemed a wardrobe malfunction, one for which Jackson faced the fallout — issued an apology to her (as well as to Britney Spears), years later. He expressed regret over his past “ignorance” and for benefiting “from a system that condones misogyny and racism.”
