I am such a Janet Jackson fan! So when she sat down and talked about her upcoming tour, I was thrilled to hear that she’s going to be performing ALL of her hit singles from every album she’s ever released! I can only imagine what a show that will be…dancing everything from Rhythm Nation to If to Feedback.
On the tour:
"It’s a completely different show, like nothing before in the past. My
real goal is to try and do every single I’ve ever had, so I have to
figure out how to fit that into two hours and yet give them enough so
they don’t feel hungry for more of that song in particular."

On the tour name, Rock Witchu:
"It’s fitting to me, fitting to what the show will be like. It’s a
dance show, it’s all upbeat. I want it to be a party on stage, a party
in the arena. I’ve always said when people come to these shows I want
them to forget about all their problems all the drama in their lives
and just have a good time, just let it go for a couple hours and bring
some happiness into their lives. It’s going to be one big party. I want
to ‘Rock Witchu.’"
On her next single:
"That’s pretty difficult to say, only because of the record label at
this point. We started off with "Feedback" and the label and myself
haven’t quite seen eye to eye since the "Feedback" single so they’ve
kind of basically stopped all promotion. I’m trying to figure out a way
to say this, but just to say it and to be quite honest, they just
stopped all promotion whatsoever on the album so I don’t think you’re
going to hear another single off this album."
On not going to Europe:
"I just want to let the fans know, because I’ve been reading a lot of
what the bloggers have been saying about the record and not hearing it
on the radio and stuff like that, so I just wanted to let them know
where things were as well and where it was all coming from. I’ve heard
people talking about me not coming to Europe in support of the record
and I just want to let them know that it was definitely in my heart to
go to Europe and to support this album but it’s about teamwork. It’s
not something I can totally do on my own. Unfortunately, things have
turned out the way that they have with the differences between the
label and myself, which we have been having for the most part from the
beginning. So, I just want to tell them again thank you very much for
all the love and all the support and I hope they understand the entire
situation and I’m really excited to see everybody on tour. I’m really
looking forward to that, it’s going to be a lot of fun."
I think it’s really sad that Def Jam isn’t into promoting this album for Janet. I’ve heard a lot of the songs and they’re good!!!
