Janet Jackson was honored with the Music Icon Award at Out magazine’s 22nd Annual Out 100 Gala held at the Altman Building in NYC on Thursday night. The 51-year-old pop icon turned heads in her eye catching head-to-toe black outfit.
Janet’s daring outfit included leather, fur, lace, lycra and a black paddle perched atop her long red extensions.
During her acceptance speech, Janet quoted the lyrics to her 1997 hit “Together Again,” saying: “Everywhere I go, Every smile I see, I know you are there, Smilin’ back at me.”
She continues her State of the World Tour in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Friday, Nov. 10. Her final stop is at the Philips Arena in Atlanta on Sunday, Dec. 17. Afterwards, Janet plans to spend the holidays co-parenting her infant son, Eissa, with her estranged husband Wissam Al Mana.
