Janet Jackson Concert Postponed!!


According to a press release that showed up in my inbox this morning, pop icon Janet Jackson has indefinitely postponed her concert scheduled for tomorrow at the BankAtlantic Center due to ill health.

Just a week and a half ago, Jackson postponed three shows in Montreal, Philadelphia, and Boston for health reasons as well. She needed to be hospitalized for undisclosed reasons then, but was hoping to resume her tour this week. However, as of this morning, she's officially postponed her dates in North Carolina, Florida, Indiana, and Georgia. It's unfortunate...but the gossip-hound in me can't help but wonder if Janet, or (Ms. Jackson if ya nasty) is pregnant. These rumors have surrounded her for awhile now and how crazy would it be if all of this undisclosed sickness had something to do with (gasp) her and Jermaine Dupri finally having a baby?

Anyway, according to the press release, tickets purchased for her October 7th show here in Sunrise will be honored at a make-up date, which has yet to be scheduled. But rest assured, as soon as a new date is scheduled, CrossFade will keep you updated.
