Janet Jackson Steps Out With Boyfriend, Defends Tour

Janet Jackson, who is on the musical comeback trail with her new tour, was spotted out to dinner with her boyfriend in Los Angeles last night. She and Wissam Al Mana grabbed dinner at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills and will kick off the leg of her current tour in the US on March 7.


Recently, her choreographer wrote a letter to the fans explaining why the tour was on a smaller scale and using bits and bobs from previous tours. Basically, because of the financial disaster of her last show with major cancellations and ticket sales, saying:

Let her ride this amazing ride, get in back with good graces, and then when she drops her album, then we r trusted in every way to give u the show u want! A big big show in every way. But because of last tour, I could see how the big heads r skeptical….”Will she make it through this year of performing ? Cancellations?

I mean, it’s not really a surprise that when someone does a more intimate type of show that they are looking to build their fan base up again, not to mention to prove to investors that she’s worth the gamble.
