Legendary singer Janet Jackson, 42, was hospitalized in Montreal last night where she is being treated for exhaustion and dehydration, according to a source who asked to remain anonymous.

We knew that fast pace concert tour was too much for the aging diva:

Janet Jackson was forced to postpone Monday night’s Bell Centre concert in Montreal at the last minute after being rushed to a hospital “due to illness,” according to promoter Gillett Entertainment Group.

“We’re not entirely sure [what happened],” said Michal Wielgus, a representative for Gillett, reached shortly before 8 p.m. “We don’t have all the details. We just found out 20 minutes ago.”

Some fans were already in the venue when the news was announced. “That’s never happened before in Bell Centre history,” Wielgus said. (Source)

    She was rehearsing and caught a glimpse of JD in her side view and pass the hell OUT…

    no seriously .. Get Well Ms Jackson

  • prynsexxx

    Don’t tell me she’s about to try and pull a Britney. You know they go crazy for a minute (ie, record sales drop, being dropped from label, hospitalization) and then go on two win FIVE MTV moonmen.

    Get well Janet.

    tickets must not be selling well….

  • PAGESINADIARY

    SHE TOO OLD TO BE DANCING AROUND LIKE CIARA

  • mizzdallas

    She just got drop by her record label and her midget azz boyfriend threw-up all over her, her concert is NOT selling out. Janet should just get married, have some bad-azz kids and write a book

  • Amulet

    I guess she would be dehydrated and exhausted with that tight layered outfit on, and all those hot lights.

    Get well Janet we love you!

  • browni007

    Again? She needs to hang this stuff up. This is the second time this year or during this tour… You’ll still be an icon Janet – SLOW DOWN

  • prynsexxx

    I smell a comeback and an album dropping (on an independent label) soon.

  • licia

    i hope she gets better soon . why is is so hard for people to believe that she might actually be sick? i doubt ticket sells have anything to do with her condition . from what i have heard she’s doing pretty good in that department.

  • http://myspace.com/ckarinwhite ckarinwhite

    I hope you feel better Janet…and if this is any indication that it’s time to retire, I won’t be mad at you!…

  • shunda

    Don’t nobody talk bad about Ms. Jackson… Now she know it is too darn hot on the stage to wear that costume but you ain’t heard that from me…

    lol Felt like channeling In Living Color today

  • omina-homina

    This is what I have to say:

    Ok. Why they have to act like she’s extremely elderly? Wasn’t there are recent ‘report’ that JD threw up on her lap? Maybe there’s a virus going around. I mean, the cold/flu season is on it’s way; and all that touring, traveling, performing is exhausting for anyone – makes you more prone to ‘coming down with something’.

  • omina-homina

    They wouldn’t push the ‘too old’ thing if this were Cher or Tina Turner getting sick on tour.

  • http://MYSPACE.COM/ERIKAMAGALY hermosa

    She ain’t sick. Nobody goes to the hospital for exhaustion and dehydration. I fwe walked into the emergency room with that sh!t, they’ll laught at us and send our ass to bed. TRUST, she ain’t sick. . .

  • kwallace577

    loves me some janet damita jo. an icon.

    get well baby.

    and i agree if this were madonna, cher, or any of the white older icons (tina too LOL…) age would not be an issue. madonna dances hard as anybody and just turned 5-0…

  • PAHairston

    Age ain’t nothin’ but a number. Look at Tina Turner!! Janet, get well soon and then, perform yo ass off for your fans, dance like there’s no tomorrow!

  • Lucy

    But Madonna doesnt yo yo diet like Ms. Jackson. The way she goes up and down with her weight is the problem is. Now that she’s too old for.

  • toosexy

    @licia

    yea, I heard her concerts were sold out, anyway I hope she gets better, I can’t imagine the stress and exhaution that comes along with a tour. They have to do a lot for that money.

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    I guess you have the inside info again because you are the first site that I have heard exhaustion and dehydration from. CNN, the first source I heard it from, didn’t even know what her illness was. I guess Miss Sandra just knows more than them.

  • Charles

    She just wants some publicity i dont think anyone even knew she was on tour………..

  • licia

    toosexy i am going to have to shank a bish just to get my tickets for the oct show in houston. lmao

    i agree with the folks on the age thing. if age isn’t a factor for them , why should it be one for janet?

  • blkdiamonn

    She actually canceled her concer here in Detroit last weekend. They rescheduled it for late October with no explanation and it was sold out!

    I think she’s probably in pretty good shape and will probably recouperate just fine! She hasnt toured in a while, and dehydration and exhaustion seem to happen to alot of artists remember, Kelly Rowland, Beyone, Mariah, Aretha, Micheal Jackson..and those are just the ones I remember!!

  • licia

    i wonder if people are still gonna pull the ” she’s too old ” crap on beyonce or ciara when they are still trying to pump that coochie on the stage at 40 or 50 . lmao

    ***************************************************

    You took the words right out of my mouth. Janet is no kinda old. Madonna is nearly 10 years older and her shows are just as energetic as Janet. Miss Tina was shaking her groove thang well into her 60’s and is planning to tour again. There are really too many acts to name that are still touring after several decades in the business and they are still bringing it.

    The people who are their age won’t be saying their old, but the people that are young when they are older will be saying it. I don’t see Ciara having that kind of longevity though, but Miss B is the next Tina Turner minus the butt whoopins.

  • Jahvonna

    This is a stunt…my Mom is over 50 years old and she speed walks every other day 3 miles (No joke, I can’t keep up with her and I am in my 20’s).

    Janet has the best health care that money can buy and I know she eats right. My Momma eats all kinds of Fatty Southern food and she doesn’t get exhaustion.

  • iyonah

    ^^^^^
    Lmao … funny.

  • omina-homina

    I hope she leaves JD.

    Whoops, did I just say that?

  • iyonah

    my funny was to you licia
    “i wonder if people are still gonna pull the ” she’s too old ” crap on beyonce or ciara when they are still trying to pump that coochie on the stage at 40 or 50 . lmao”

    I can see Bey in the future but not CiCi … maybe modeling is better for her.

    Get well Miss Jackson

  • rodneygunn

    All i have to say is that people need to stop posting these negative comment about Miss Jackson. First of all her tour has been selling out and if you dumb ass people would get your facts straight you would know that Miss Jackson requested to be released from her contract due to lack of promotion by the record label. The label granted her wishes. So people need to stop with these false statements. The new females like Beyonce, Ciara, Alicia Keys, Keyshia Cole, and even Mary J Blige will never sell over 100 million records like the Grand Diva Miss Jackson. This woman has over 10 #1 pop hits and over 16 #1 R&B hits. You do the math.
