Janet Jackson’s ‘State Of The World’ Tour Is On Fire! (@JanetJackson)

janetjackson_4_mikebrooksJanet Jackson’s State of the World Tour, which kicked off in Lafayette on September 7th, is, by all accounts, a complete success. Though there are still a number of dates remaining – the final show will be in December – MJ Magazine has gotten first hand feedback from several concert goers, and the general consensus is that Miss Jackson still has the rhythm for the nation.

With all that she’s been through, one would think Janet Jackson would want to recline into the background, opting to stay out of the public’s eye, but that is definitely not the case. Janet is fully engaged in her tour and very active on social media to boot. One source told us, “It’s as if she is excited about having her life back, the way it’s always been.”
