TIMELINE

  • Janet JacksonJanet Jackson was born on May 16, 1966 in Gary, Indiana, as the youngest of the famous, musical Jackson family. Over the course of the 80s, she has emerged as the most respected talent of her family for the 90s. Janet has attained world-wide superstar status with her dance moves and music - always keeping up with trends and never selling out to the "safe pop sound." Janet first tried out her showbiz talents in Las Vegas opening up for her brothers. By age 7, Janet was singing and dancing on TV specials with her brothers. But it was her acting in various sitcoms (Good Times (1977-79), Diff'rent Strokes (1981-82), and Fame) that first found her some success. Janet was actually hand-picked by TV mogul Norman Lear to appear in Good Times. At age 16, Janet was coerced into the music industry by her father and signed to A&M Records.
