Watch: Janet Jackson shocks fans by posing as statue

By Will Stroude

Janet Jackson gave fans the surprise of their life last week after fooling fans into thinking she was a statue at an exhibition dedicated to herself.

The No Sleeep singer, whose ongoing world tour is  set to hit the UK in late March and early April 2016, posed as herself at the My Music VIP’s Janet Museum, before coming to life and making the fans in attendance rightly lose their s***.


Janet’s latest record Unbreakable recently gave the 49-year-old her seventh Number One album on the Billboard 200, and propelled her into the history books as just one of just three artists to top the chart in each of the last four decades – find out more here.

The chart-topping record followed 2008’s DisciplineAll For You (2001), The Velvet Rope(1997), janet. (1993), Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989) and Control (1986): the only female artists in history with more are Barbra Streisand (with ten) and Madonna (who has eight).
