GREENSBORO, N.C. - (AP) Janet Jackson has postponed three more shows because of an undisclosed illness. '
Her publicist said in an e-mail late Saturday that Jackson was postponing a Saturday show in Greensboro, N.C., one on Sunday in Atlanta and a third on Tuesday in Fort Lauderdale.
A statement from Jackson said she arrived in Greensboro, N.C., hoping to perform there Saturday, but a local doctor advised that she not perform after it became "evident" she was not fully recovered.
Representatives for the 42-year-old singer say she became "suddenly ill" and was hospitalized Monday night in Montreal shortly after she arrived for a show. She also canceled concerts in Boston and Philadelphia on Wednesday and Thursday.
Jackson's publicist did not elaborate Saturday, only saying she was "recuperating." The note said Jackson will return home, at her doctor's direction, for further treatment.
In the note Jackson asked people to keep their tickets for the postponed shows, and said the promoter is working to reschedule dates.
Jackson is on her first North American tour in seven years.

Her career is crumbling apart.... These stunts will make her lose the fans she has left..

Maybe she's pregnant.
its called morning sickness,at least she can get fat again with a logic excuse!
Sounds like one in the oven to me.....JD sick....Janet sick....do tha math.
Shes pregnant with Jermaine's gremlin child.
Poor Janet Just Give It Up Girl...
DOESNT SHE DO THIS EVERY TOUR..SEEMS LIKE SHE DID THIS THE LAST TIME SHE HAD A MAJOR TOUR. JANET SHOULD KNOW SHE ISNT 17 ANYMORE, TRYING TO COMPETE WITH HER YOUNG DANCERS. I HOPE SHE GETS BETTER SOON. I KNOW ALL THE JANET FANS WHO BOUGHT TICKETS R NOT PLEASED!
NOW THAT WE HAVE HOPEFULLY ALL REGISTERED TO VOTE WE MUST VOTE....VOTE EARLY IF YOU CAN, IF NOT VOTE ON NOV 4TH!!!
Huh, wonder what REALLY goin on. I wish her a speedy recovery. Support Obama!
JANET IS PREGNANT. CONGRATS TO HER AND JERMAINE.
I was in the lobby when we got word from the Coliseum crew that they were cancelling her show...she owes me $100 for these new shoes I bought that hurt my dawgs~ LOL!
ugh she just needs to give it a rest, her music sucks now anyway
@ Blackexec. I read the same thing ....
___Cute Ladies Shoes @ The Stilettoe___
awwwwww,shes PREGNANT WITH A LIL LEPRECHAUN!!!!!
Just stop it with the foolery Janet. Its time to retire miss lady...
she needs to retire and have babies....
she should not retire.
WHO CARES... NEXT
aaah janet is DIAGNOSED with
NOBODY IS PAYING MY OLE *** NO MIND!!
hope she doesnt have AIDS or somethin
she got around in her day..
1. Does she really need to disclose HER illness. That's private.
2. MTO I think you can produce a more flattering pic of Ms. Jackson than this. Come on out of respect for a pioneer.
If janet cancels shows like that it is dissapointing to her fans she should just take off for a while and if she's still ill it is best to just retire.
I hope she gets better. I guess she won't be performing this Tuesday at the Bank Atlantic Center in South Florida. Too bad because I have some really good floor seats.
Her fans will understand...
Her ATL show sold out. I hope she's better but it does sound like she's preggos.
*Cough* *cough*, im sick too, i guess Now i cant go to school tomorow.lol
NOTHING WORNG WITH HER SHE JUST PERGANT WITH CHILD YES SHE IS HAVING A CHILD YOU BE SEEING HER WEARRING BIG LOSE CLOTHES ON STAGE WHEN SHE GET BACK ON HER FEET.
Hang it up Ma!
Get better Lady J.
*Cough* *cough*, im sick too, i guess Now i cant go to school tomorow.lol
AWWW JJ IS PREGGERS!!!!
I'M SO HAPPY FOR HER.
To all of the people that says she's pregnant, I concur. That was the first thought that came to mind when I heard that she had postponed another concert. It makes sense, she just needs to retire fully and be a mommy. Her career is not what it use to be and she isn't either. I don't understand these entertainers, shucks get in and get out! Make way for the up and coming artist and let it go.
I HOPE SHE DONT GOT NO DISEASE???
I'm sick of hearing about Penny, now let that mess go.
she pregnant thas why......the throwing up, the *** feeling all day....she probably like 6-8 weeks preggers.....
foxylady........what exactly is it that miss janet is a PIONEER at?
DO YOU GUYS THINK SHE'S PREGNANT OR DARE I SAY SHE GOT THE A WORD DONE AND NEEDS TIME TO HEAL UP.
AWW IF JANET PREG COOL I HOPE THE BABY BE CUTE CUZ IT DO SOUND LIKE SHE PREG IF NOT SHE GOT A DISEASE IF ITS THAT UNKNOWN...
For anyone figuring she's pregnant, think again. Janet has been pulling these stunts in every tour she's done. So unless she's been pregnant on every tour she's done in her career, methinks that's not the issue. I've been to every Janet tour she's ever done (though I have no interest in seeing this one), and EVERY SHOW she did here in Philly were rescheduled "due to illness".
I mentioned on here a few days ago that 1 of my best friends is a Sales Exec with Live Nation. And he told me that this illness issue of hers is caused by low ticket sales on this tour. So far, she's only had 2 sellout shows out the first 11! The Philly show only had sold 4,700 tickets in a 21,000-seat arena before she "fell ill". The BankNorth Garden in Boston had sold only 3,500 seats in that 20,000-seat building. And the remaining shows on the tour ain't doing much better. At least, in previous tours, ticket sales weren't an issue when she "fell ill" & had to postpone shows. But now, just like with her record sales, her tickets aren't selling either - which makes the "illness" look more related to poor ticket sales.
So for the Janet Freaks (I love her too, but we gotta be realistic) who never wanna admit that she's fallen off in the sales department just because she's an "icon", enough is enough & it's time to stop pretending the fall-off isn't happening. If Beyonce or Alicia were to sell ONE LESS COPY than usual, some of you'd be telling them they're washed & to sit down. Yet Janet can sell 10% of what she used to, and some of us are saying "Huh? NOO SHE'S DIDN'T FALL OFF! IT'S CUZ OF THE SUPER BOWL 4 YEARS AGO! UM, IT'S THE RECORD BUSINESS, NO ONE SELLS BIG NUMBERS ANYMORE!!" Oh no? Tell that to A. Keys or Beyonce or Mary J. or Timberlake or Ne-Yo or Chris Brown or even Lil Wayne -- ALL of whom are still putting up huge numbers to this day. Just my 2 cents, thanks.
What MYSTERY ILLNESS - she gotta lil Dupree
AHH reports that she is preggers. If so, congrats!
wow! that lackofticketsales syndrome is really spreading. i knew it would eventually spread to janet. better start taking off that top........now that i would pay to see!
I know LL's *** than a *** !!!!
PEOPLE ARE GONNA FEEL REALLY BAD IF SHE INDEED DOES HAVE A REAL ILLNESS, HOWEVER, IF SHE DOSEN'T I FEEL BAD FOR HER, THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO FAKE AN ILLNESS WITH THE WAY PEOPLE ARE COMING DOWN WITH CANCER AND ALL.
The whole Jackson family needs to put a show together and run Vegas !!!! They only appeal to the middle aged, older crowd now
hey, even if janet is pregnant, the jacksons will spoil that bigheadded baby rotten
OH, MTO AGAIN WITH THE PICTURE?LOL
Ok, I think Janet is a great entertainer, but as far as singing, she is no Jennifer Hudson! I will spend my money on a great singer over a entertainer!
PROLLY SO THE DEN THIS SEEM LIKE THE MOST PUB SHE GOT SINCE HER ALBUM DROPPED JANET COOL WITH ME THO I WISH HER WELL WITH WHATEVER IT IS :)
Shes probably with child...congrats!
Aw...Well if she's sick, I guess she wont make her appearance here in NYC...get better Janet.
babyy babyy babyy!
Wasn't her ex husband Rene Elizando messing around with *** men?
I know (for the past 7 years) Jan's and Jermaines PR teams feel like master illusionists when they hear and read that Janet is pregnant (or even WITH Jermaine-ROMANTICALLY.
Smh @ the entertainment business...
aww get better JJ!
I hope she gets well soon. You people have to remember that before she is an artist she is a HUMAN BEING! she gets sick just like the rest of us. I'm just hoping it's nothing serious. and for all you people talking about her age and that she's through, STFU!!!! Janet is a pioneer. If it wasn't for the Jackson family, half of these *** artists of today wouldn't be *** becuz they wouldn't have nobody's style to jack! (yep I said it). So respect her! and again, get well soon JJ!
I AGREE ALWAYSCLASSY...
@ matman12600 maybe they do appear to an older crowd now...but Im under 20 and me and all my friends would KILL to see Michael perform live. He is a legend. All the Jacksons have inspired so many people. The Jackson family is often disrespected but I'm just laughing at the people who praise these *** artists of today, but wanna disrespect the legends....it amuses me! and thank you KEEYSHAJ50
I think she and Jermaine may be splitting up and she's having a hard time accepting it, they said when she rushed to the hospital he was not by her side but somewhere partying.
what a picture!!!!! Get better JJ- - WHATEVER it is!!??????
I voted, did you??
her tour is a bust and they will save more money canceling the shows than putting on shows that cant sell tickets. point blank. this is all a stunt.her "people" release statements to the press saying that she has some illness, that she was in the hospital, out the hospital-blah blah blah. Janet, just cancel the whole tour, call it a day and start doing shows in Vegas like Cher and Toni Braxton. you will definitely sell those shows out with no problem. Toni didnt have a hit records in YEARS but her Vegas shows were always sold out. I couldnt get a ticket to save my life! so Janet, I recommend you do the same thing Toni did. I love me some Janet but Im not paying $200 for a ticket to see a 42 year old woman perform hits from 1985 and on top of that, try to be all current and up to date and gyrate her body like a 25 year old, its just too sad. I would rather listen to her songs on my ipod and check out her old videos on you-tube for free
She better try RETIREMENT!!!
If she IS pregnant, good for her. She has wanted to be a Mom for a long time. If she is ill, I wish her the best. (She cancelled her Detroit show too!)
@TheDen: I figured poor ticket sales were the reason all these shows were magically cancelled and your story pretty much confirmed my suspicions. Mariah Carey also has the same habit of cancelling or postponing when her concerts don't sell.
Janet is pregnat...ahw...i was just like that when I got pregnant the first time. I was sick and running in and out the ER...soon, they will do a test and confirm it...stop the tour Janet and go home and get ready to be a mommie. Janet set the bar for all of these so called superstars today...she was bad back in the day
Baaaaaaaaaaaabbbbyyy yyyyyyyyyyyyyyy THE QUEENS OF ATL GONNA GET HER ***! I CANT WAIT TO HEAR WHAT MISS SOPHIA HAS TO SAY IN THE MORNIN ON V-103 LOL
Between the foreign objects in her body(fake breast),the yo yo dieting,and having *** with that small guy, who knows what her problem is?
The Jackson's always have some mysterious disease or illness that conveniently comes up whenever their careers are crumbling down.
And even if she's pregnant will she keep this one?
SHE RESCHEDULED HER SHOW HERE IN THE 'A' TOO!!!!!!!!!
SHE'S PREGO!! ISN'T IT OBVIOUS? FIRST JD WAS EARLING NOW IT'S HER!!
Lack of ticket sales illiness!
Well at least she's still honoring the tickets. Unlike lil wayne's punk *** who ditched his fans in The Bahamas. I knew there was a reason I didn't buy into that bullsh*t concert. Buju was off the chain though(or so I heard). lol
I think she is pregnant. And if so, CONGRATS!
Her and JD make a wonderful couple, they need to make it legal first though. We don't need any more *** kids running around, rich or not:)
ASK TONY THE DRIVER HE HERE'S EVERYTHING
FOR ALL U HATERS OUT THERE: I FIND IT LAUGHABLE THAT U ACTUALLY THINK THAT AT THIS POINT IN HER PHENOMENAL CAREER THAT JANET DEPENDS ON RECORD SALES OR CONCERT SALES TO PAY HER BILLS! HELLO.. SHE HASNT TOURED IN SEVEN YEARS, AND BEFORE DISCIPLINE, HADNT HAD A HIT IN YEARS, AND SHE'S STILL FILTHY STANKIN RICH! SHE IS DOING THIS TOUR FOR HER FANS!! WE'VE BEEN BEGGING HER 4 ANOTHER TOUR FOREVER, AND SHE FINALY OBLIGED, THANK GOD. SHE IS NOT COMPETING WITH BEY OR RI, OR ANY OTHER OF THESE GIRLS WHO HAVE STOLEN HER & HER BROTHER'S EVERY MOVE! JANET IS THE BLUEPRINT, THE ORIGINATOR 4 FEMALES IN THIS GENRE, AND AS MUCH AS SHE MAY HAVE "FALLEN OFF", NO ONE CAN TAKE HER TITLE, AND NO ONE BUT MADONNA HAS OUTSOLD HER IN TOUR SALES, SO WHAT? IF U'VE SEEN THE SHOWS THAT SHE DID DO ON THIS TOUR, IT'S CLEAR THAT SHE STILL HAS IT, AND IF SHE DECIDES 2 NOT DO A FEW SHOWS, OH WELL, SHE'S GIVIN US ALMOST 3 DECADES OF TOP NOTCH PERFORMING AND MUSIC VIDEOS, AND SHE DESERVES SO MUCH MORE RESPECT THAN SHE'S GIVEN. AND ONE QUESTION: DO U KNOW ANY 42-YR-OLDS THAT LOOK LIKE HER, OR CAN DANCE LIKE THAT? I DON'T!
AND UP2IT.. WTF IS UR PROBLEM? FOR UR INFO, JANET DOES SING LIVE, A LOT! YES, SHE USES BACKING TRACKS, LIKE EVERY OTHER SINGER I EVER HEARD LIVE, INCLUDING MARIAH CAREY, WHOSE BACKING TRACK STARTING SKIPPING ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA IN FRONT OF MILLIONS, THANK YOU. HOWEVER, THAT IS NOT THE SAME AS LYP-SYNCHING, WHICH MEANS UR NOT SINGING AT ALL, SO GET BENT. AND Y THE "***" EVERY OTHER WORD? Y U MAD BOO? CALLING THIS LADY ALL OUT HER NAME, 4 WHAT? SHE'S ACCOMPLISHED MORE IN HER 42 YRS THAN U OR UR WHOLE FAMILY WILL EVER ACCOMPLISH IN UR WHOLE LIFE, SO RESPECT HER, LOSER. ALSO, Y DONT U PEOPLE CHECK OUT "JANET ROCK WHICHU TOUR" ON YOUTUBE, AND THEN JUDGE. THIS WOMAN IS WORKING HER BEAUTIFUL *** OFF, AND IT'S EASY 2 SEE HOW SUCH A GRUELING REGIMEN, 5 DAYS A WEEK CAN MAKE EVEN A 20-YR. OLD SICK AT SOME POINT. SHE'S A HUMAN BEING, PEOPLE! WHAT OTHER FEMALE BESIDES BEY, COULD EVEN COMPARE TO HER LIVE SHOWS? NAME ONE! JUST ONE! GO AHEAD, I'LL WAIT...
MAYBE SHE IS PREGO? ....PREGNANCY CAN PUT A HOLD ON THINGS !!!!!!
She gained so much weight, AGAIN
There are many elements to the reasons why its slow sales.
TWo the ticket prices!!!
Three. Janet's Music isn't what it used to be, in fact, things started declining after the "Janet" album in 1992. When Jimmy and Terry started following "trends" which was not the "better" way to go. Even though that record was still better than others out there..but was a far cry from Rhythim Nation and Control.
Production VALUE has incredibly slumped since early 90s. Music has been cheapened from eating "Neuhaus" chocolates to Russell Stover (removing the higher cocoa content) making it a cheaper quality product.
And further more, Jermaine Dupree is not helping Janet's career. He's thin on musical talent and doesn't get it! Why are we choosing our music to be of poorer quality and lack of so much talent? Even the musicians in the 40s through the 80s were far superior than what we have the choice of today. These people can't even play instruments and only know how to sample real artists from the 70s and 80s.
Let's get a clue people and start pointing those facts out to the youth..and make them hear the difference.
she might be sick but she will always be beautiful
