Janet ‘Unsure’ About Def Jam, Talks Tour with LL Cool J and Label Future

With the ‘Rockwitchu’ Tour’s kickoff next week, Janet Jackson shed some light on her situation with Def Jam Wednesday, stating she is ‘unsure’ about working with them again. After the label reportedly pulled the plug on any future promotion or videos for Jackson’s latest effort “Discipline” earlier this year, the “Rockwitchu” singer has serious doubts about her future with the label. “I don’t know what the future holds between the two of us. I can’t say if we’ll be working with them in the future” Jackson said during a press conference Wednesday. With her recording future in turmoil, Jackson has placed all of her time and energy into the “Rockwitchu” tour which kicks off next Wednesday. “This show is all for the fans, they tell me what they’d like to hear, what they’d like to see, what they want. And this is what I’m trying to give them.” Calling the tour “two hours of dance” on a stage set that has “a taste of the future” Jackson promises to run through songs that span her entire career in addition to sharing the stage with LL Cool J. The “Ladies Love Cool James” star was recently revealed as the supporting act for Jackson’s tour which runs through the October 22nd. LL Cool J will perform a mix of classic hits and new songs from the recently released “Exit 13” album featuring the hit single “Baby.” For fans who are unable to make the show or who would like to have a copy to add to their DVD collection, Jackson says she is in talks to produce a DVD and possible television airing. “We’ve been talking about something for TV, also a DVD.” In related news, Jackson is eyeing new U.S. tour dates and a possible tour in Europe, Asia, Australia and Russia which will be announced soon. “It hasn’t been etched in stone. It’s still being put together. People will hear about it in a little while” Jackson told Billboard earlier this week. Jackson’s Rockwitchu Tour kicks off Wednesday in Vancouver, BC.
