Janet Jackson is a music legend. With almost 3 decades of being a pop star, the 47-year-old American recording artist and actress is one person who has perfected the art of making the world talk about her.
Known for a series of sonically innovative, socially conscious and sexually provocative records, as well as elaborate stage shows, television appearances, and film roles, Janet Jackson remains one of our favourite people to look out for. Things have been quite for her lately but as we celebrate black women we have crushes on we had to have Janet Jackson on the list.
Janet is that pop queen that every girl had a poster of because they wanted to be like her and every boy had a poster of because they wanted her. Over the years Janet Jackson has done a few controversial things that had the world talking as well as some magazine covers that were explicit for the years that they came out in. Janet Jackson has been churning out explicit magazine covers since 1993, a time where being overly sexually provocative was frown upon.
