Janet Damita Jo Jackson was born on May 16, 1966 in Gary, Indiana as the 10th child of Katherine Jackson and Joseph Walter Jackson. As the youngest sister of the legendary Jackson brothers, Janet was introduced to music early on in life. The spry pop star has been among the most popular music stars of the last three decades, with her music dominating international charts and the Billboard. For her aptness and zeal, Janet Jackson has already 6 Grammy's and her hits remain a dominant force in the mammoth pop music world.
Janet started out her fledgling show-business endeavors in 1970s as a back up to the Jackson brothers who were already making ripples in the entertainment industry. But it's April 1974 when Janet actually debuted on stage when she first performed alongside her siblings in a Las Vegas club. She was only 7 years old. From there, she went on to Starr on TV starting with the ill-fated "The Jacksons" family show that was wrapped up after only two years.
Janet's big break came in 1977 when she was slotted by Norman Lear to act in the family sitcom "Good Times." It's her performance in the show that catapulted her into fame. She went on to play in "A New Kind of Family", "Diff'rent Strokes", and the much maligned "Fame" show.
By the time she was 15 years of age, Janet was itching to make forays into the music industry and was only held back by his father Joseph Walter Jackson. By 18 years of age though, Janet was ripe for the music industry and A&M Records contracted her.
Her debut album, Janet Jackson, released in 1982 but was a big flop only peaking at number sixty three on Billboard 200. Her second album titled the "Dream Street", released two years later was equally nondescript and didn't make much of an impact in the music scenes either. Indeed, Michael Jackson success with hits such as "Off the Wall", and "Thriller", were a great obstacle to her rise to prominence. Out of frustration, Janet Jackson inadvertently broke ranks with her family and set out to make a music career on her own.
This move remarkably changed her fortunes as her third album, "Control", done in collaboration with producer Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewisthat, was released in 1986 hitting the number one spot on Billboard. It was a departure from her other works as the theme of the songs were socially conscious. Eventually, the album sold fourteen million copies worldwide and Janet rose to stardom.
Buoyed by the success of this album, Janet went on to produce numerous that included the Rythm Nation album (1989) that won three awards and five of its songs became great hits invariably dominating International charts. Others award winning hits include " Alright", "Got 'til It's Gone", and "All for You" that won her a Grammy in 2002. Her most recent releases include Damita Jo, (2004), 20 Y.O (2006), and Discipline (2008). Her latest compilation, "No Sleeep" is expected to debut in 2015.
Janet Jackson is definitely an entertainment icon that many others dream of emulating. Even as her music compilation seems to take a backstage in favor performing on stage, her past hits remain a revelation to the world.
