Janet Damita Jo Jackson
American recording artist and actress,Janet Damita Jo Jackson has an estimated net worth of $150 million as of 2007. As the youngest of the famous Jackson clan, Janet has always enjoyed the spotlight. Few celebrity siblings can emerge from the shadows of their already famous relations to become superstars in their own right and with their own distinct personalities. That’s exactly what Janet Jackson did in becoming one of the biggest female pop and R&B stars of the ’80s and ’90s. Since her breakthrough in 1986 with the album Control, Jackson’s career as a hitmaker has been a model of consistency, rivaling Madonna and Whitney Houston in terms of pop chart success over the long haul.A big part of the reason was that Jackson kept her level of quality control very high; her singles were always expertly crafted, with indelible pop hooks and state-of-the-art production that kept up with contemporary trends in urban R&B.
Since then,the Late M.J’s kid sister has sold over 100 million records worldwide and landed 10 No. 1 singles on Billboard’s Hot 100, she is ranked as one of the best-selling artists in the history of contemporary music. Her album, 20 Y.O., hardly made a blip on the charts, but don’t count Miss Jackson out. Tours have proven a substantial cash cow for the seasoned performer.
She was the youngest of nine children in the Jackson family, and her older brothers had already begun performing together as the Jackson 5 by the time she was born. Bitten by the performing bug at a young age, she first appeared on-stage with the Jackson 5 at age seven, and began a sitcom acting career at the age of ten in 1977, when producer Norman Lear selected her to join the cast of Good Times.Janet Jackson was born May 16, 1966 in Gary, Indiana, the youngest of ten children, to Katherine Esther and Joseph Walter Jackson.
