Janet Jackson Breaks Down On Stage After Singing About Domestic Violence

Published

on

Janet Jackson had an emotional moment during her State of the World tour this weekend.  After surprising some victims of Hurricane Harvey on Friday (Sept. 8) with a surprise appearance at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Jackson dedicated Saturday’s show to those affected by the massive storm. But it was during her performance of “What About” from her 1997 album “The Velvet Rope” that caused her to breakdown.

“What about the times you yelled at me? / What about the times I cried?,” she sang intensely. “You wouldn’t even hold me / What about those things?/ What about that, what about that? /What about the times you hit my face? /What about the times you kept on when I said, ‘No more please’ / What about those things?”

The song which details an abusive relationship, apparently touched Jackson in a personal way. When it was over, she stopped, put her hand over her face and began to cry on stage. It took her a moment to compose herself, with the encouragement of the audience, before saying to the crowd, “This is me.”

Jackson is on the second leg of her tour after taking a break due to her pregnancy. She gave birth to her first child, son Eissa, about nine months ago. Meanwhile, she’s going through a divorce from his father, Wissam Al Mana, after five years of marriage.

Clearly, it was “God’s Plan” for Drizzy to take his entire budget for his music video and spend it on various residents and workers in Florida’s hot spot city. That’s right almost a million bucks — $996,631.90 to be exact — was slotted for Drake to shoot the visuals for his latest hit but instead he used all the money to make a difference. And in doing so, he made us cry … multiple times. Just watch the video below.

In a statement the self-professed “6god” said this video was “the most important thing” he’s ever done. We’d agree.
