Janet Jackson Bio: Life and Career of the Singer and Actress
Born May 16th, 1966 in Gary, Indiana, Janet Jackson got her start in showbiz alongside her famous brothers in The Jackson 5. After doing some acting, her manager father encouraged her to pursue music. But it was only after she started working with a new manager and other producers that her albums became successful: 1986's "Control" began a string of number one records and spawned dozens of top 10 singles. Though her mix of pop, R&B, soul and funk resonated with audiences, Jackson also branched out into acting. She hit a rough spot after her 2004 Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction but found herself back on top of the game in 2008 with "Discipline." In this WatchMojo.com video, we take a look at the life and career of Janet Jackson.
