Pop icon Janet Jackson graces the new cover of New York's Gotham Magazine and dishes about her new album, book (True You), upcoming movie (Why Did I Get Married Too?), new year's resoultions and the ongoing struggle to deal with the reality of Michael's death.
The new year is shaping up to to be quite busy and exciting for Ms. Jackson. Fans should expect a first quarter release for the new album which is yet untitled and plenty of upbeat tracks.
"It’s going to be a little different. The writing is about life experiences. There’s a part of me that’s craving escapism, which is a sense of wanting to keep on moving with my work but also of coming to terms with reality. So I think it will be upbeat and light.”
Jackson also tells Gotham she plans on learning a new language in 2010 and hopefully inspiring fans with her new book detailing her history with weight loss.
"It’s not an autobiography, but there are little anecdotes that I give here and there from my childhood all the way to the present that I thought would be interesting and helpful to share", says Jackson.
Whatever she's selling I'm buying! The diva is back folks!
