Janet Jackson Joins The Billionaire Club

Published

on

Janet Jackson is back in the studio working on new material, but HipHollywood has learned that the pop icon certainly isn’t doing it for the money. According to a new report by Variety, Janet is a bonafide billionaire … or at least has made a billion dollars in her lifetime.

The singer/actress has earned $458 million from touring, $304 million from acting, $260 million from album sales and pocketed more than $81 million in sponsorship deals. Couple this with the fact that Jackson recently married a billionaire and you can see just how wealthy she is.

The news helps silence reports that Jackson is broke. Back in 2012, several gossip outlets speculated that the singer couldn’t afford to pay the mortgage on a Las Vegas condo her mother was staying. At the time, Jackson’s camp immediately blasted the rumor as false … and with a bank account like hers, we believe it.

    I loves me some Janet. She is a professional and energetic business woman who has been in the entertainment for over 3 decades, and has paved the way for other female artist that have come after her. She is an activist and a trailblazer. She is respected and has earned her just due in the industry. I admire her strength and tenacity for staying true to herself and her beliefs and conquering the world of pop music as well as movies and other projects. She is modest and a very beautiful person with a big heart. Where other female artist of today have failed to give back to the community or given back to causes, she has and has stayed faithful to HIV/AIDS activist for decades and knows that her fan base as well as her dancers are or have died from HIV/AIDS or has been affected by it, she has taken it upon herself to be a guiding force in making sure that their lives was not in vain. Good luck to Mrs. Al Mana in her nuptials and in her upcoming projects and endeavors….May God continue to bless you and keep you wrapped in his arms, you and your family.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
