Janet Jackson Wants to Conquer Broadway
Pop icon Janet Jackson has done it all. She has conquered music, film and television. But there’s one thing that Ms. Jackson has yet to take ‘Control’ over — the Broadway stage. In an interview with FansShare, the 44-year-old entertainer says she yearns to be the queen of Broadway.
“I want to experience that someday,” she says of her aspirations to perform on the Great White Way. Janet also added that she would like to produce movies, as well. “I want to make more films — I’ve just made a producer’s agreement with Lionsgate because music will always be a part of my life,” she says.
We would love to see Janet tackle the Broadway stage — it would definitely be a good look for her. We can see the Grammy-winning songbird showing off her slinky legs as the showgirl Roxie Hart in ‘Chicago’ or maybe playing the Wicked Witch of the West in the hit musical ‘Wicked.’ Plus, her appearance on Broadway could possibly help boost ticket sales in the theater community. So it’s a win-win all the way around.
In the meantime, Janet is currently heating up the world stage with her new tour ‘Number Ones: Up Close and Personal’ where she performs all of her No. 1 hits. The trek, which kicked off in February, will hit Australia and New Zealand before wrapping up in the United States with a Miami concert in December.
