Janet Jackson postpones "Unbreakable" world tour to undergo throat surgery

buzzz worthy. . .



On Christmas Eve via Facebook Janet Jackson announced the postponement of her world tour per doctors orders. She disclosed should would be having surgery, but did not specify the type of procedure, the affected part of her body or when it would take place.  

Wrote Jackson, “I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring.” 

Other than that smidgen of information and a request for her fans to pray, her lips are sealed on the matter.  Jackson had cancelled two dates in October of 2015 tweeting that doctors  ordered her to rest her vocal chords. The 2016 leg of the "Unbreakable" tour was scheduled to kick off on Jan. 9.

Radar Online reports a source close to the 49-year-old star is allegedly claiming Janet must have a tumor removed from her throat "immediately."  

“God forbid that this should be cancer of the larynx,” Dr. Stuart Fischer told Radar. “That would abruptly end her ability to ever perform again.” Projecting a positive attitude, the youngest Jackson sibling  ended the post with “Gon’ b alright.”

Jackson released "Unbreakable" as a come back recording that ended up #1 on Billboard. Along with Barbara Streisand and Brice Springstein Ms. Jackson is the only other artist to have a #1 album on Billboard charts over 4 decades. "Unbreakable" ended the year in the top 25 R&B albums of 2015 at #7.
