Janet Jackson goes global to steal the show
SOME of the biggest names in music — from Cardi B to Chris Martin — performed at New York’s Global Citizen Festival, but it was Janet Jackson who stole the show.
The 52-year-old threw herself into an energetic 13-song set, including hits like Nasty, When I Think Of You and Rhythm Nation.
Jackson started crying on stage during What About, in which she reclaims power over her life after years of abuse. ‘I am done with you!’ she emotionally shouted out at the end of the song.
‘Like millions of other women out there, I know about bullying,’ said the Unbreakable singer. ‘I know about verbal abuse. I know about physical abuse. I know about abuse of authority. I’m infuriated by the double standards that treat women as second-class citizens. Enough, you guys!’
