Finally, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has come to its senses and will honor the legendary icon Janet Jackson.
“Janet Jackson has built a career so groundbreaking that she’s immediately identifiable on a first-name basis,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website wrote. “She explored social issues, themes of empowerment and self-confidence, and influenced generations with her stylized music videos with innovative choreography.”
That’s an understatement.
The ageless 52-year-old has sold an estimated 100 million albums worldwide with 10 number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, 16 Hot R&B number-one singles, 5 Grammys and 11 American Music Awards. She is also the eleventh best-selling female artist in the United States. Clearly, the honor was well overdue.
The icon wrote on Twitter, “We did it u guys. Thank U for all your love and support.” See below:
She also told Rolling Stone, “Thank you Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I am truly honored and I am happy to be in there with my brothers.”
Janet also been trending on social media all day and in honor of this overdue achievement, we had to take a look at Janet’s career in photos.
