Largest ever world tour…Janet Damita Jo
|In late 2009, Janet Jackson released her 34-track hits collection ‘Number Ones,’ but kept busy in 2010 by penning her first book, ‘True You,’ and appearing in two Tyler Perry films — ‘For Colored Girls’ and ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?’ — the latter which spawned her 35th hit ‘Nothing.’
All that time away from touring has led Janet to miss her fans much and make plans for her biggest escapade yet … but there’s a catch. The icon wants her fans to pick the 35 cities for her “largest ever world tour” in 2011 behind ‘Number Ones.’ Fans can vote and map out the schedule at JanetJackson.com.On Tuesday, Nov. 30, we’ll post an exclusive Q&A with Ms. Jackson featuring questions submitted by her loyal followers. Fans are encouraged to submit questions about her recent turn in movies, book and music to @theboomboxblog on Twitter and The BoomBox on Facebook, of which fifteen will be chosen. Janet reveals more details in the video below.

KING: What about with your brothers?
KING: Your sister?JACKSON: No.
KING: So Janet goes it her own way? Can I say that?
