Janet Jackson's 1986 Album 'Control' Tops Charts After Justin Timberlake’s Apology (Video)
Janet Jackson has broken her silence after Justin Timberlake's apology where he admitted he had “failed,” both she and Britney Spears.
Janet posted an emotional video to social media on Saturday where she graciously thanked her fans for their support throughout the years.
She did not directly reference Justin’s apology, but did seem to acknowledge the apology in the form of a subtle exchange with singer Tinashe on Twitter.
Tinashe tweeted, "Anyone who knows me knows Britney Spears and Janet Jackson are literally my two biggest idols in the whole universe and I just hope they know how much they mean to me/us."
Janet posted a 45-second video of herself on social media that she captioned, “Thank U.”
She said, “I was at home just the other day by myself and I began to cry. I was crying because I was so thankful for all that God has blessed me with. All that he has given me. For Him being in my life. And I am so thankful for all of you being in my life. You're so special to me.”
After outpouring support, Janet also shared her gratitude over the fact that her 1986 album “Control” is now number one.
She said,“I want to thank all of you for making Control number one once again after 35 years. I never in a million years, I would never think that this would happen. I really appreciate you and I love you so, so much. Thank you."
