In a recent interview with VIBE, Janet Jackson’s friend and former lover, Jermaine Dupri confirmed that the megastar is not working on an album, revealing that the 43 year old may be done recording albums altogether. Check out what he had to say after the jump…
VIBE: Will you be involved in Janet Jackson’s next project?
Dupri: I can tell you that she’s not working on an album. We just did the one song (“Nothing”) for the Why Did I Get Married Too soundtrack, which was released off of So So Def. Last time I heard she really didn’t want to do an album. She wanted to just do singles every once in a while. She’s looked at the marketplace—albums are not really doing what they usually do when you put all this budget out there. Janet is just trying to figure out her landscape.
She’s cool (though). She has a lot of work going on that’s keeping her in the right direction. The movie came out, which is the biggest Tyler Perry movie he has had thus far. It looks like her star power as an actress is still there. And she’s about to do the other movie ([I]For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf) with Mariah, Kerry Washington, Whoopi Goldberg and few others.
