Janet Jackson has landed the headlining spot at Britain's Glastonbury Music Festival, according to UK's The Sun newspaper. Glastonbury is England's most iconic music festival. This will be Janet's first ever Glastonbury appearance.

The 52-year-old American pop icon will take the stage at Worthy Farm in Somerset, England as part of a star-studded lineup that includes American pop singer Janelle Monaé, Stormzy and Kylie Minogue, according to WENN.com.

The 2019 Glastonbury Festival runs from June 26 to 30.

Janet was among the many celebrities and political figures showing their support to actor/singer Jussie Smollett who was allegedly attacked early Tuesday in downtown Chicago.

The 36-year-old Empire star claims he was assaulted by two men wearing ski masks while yelling racial and homophobic insults at him. Smollett claims the suspects threw bleach in his face and looped a "noose" around his neck.

Janet shared a picture of the two of them together on Twitter.com after the news broke on Tuesday.

She captioned the image, "Sending u my love", alongside a purple heart and praying hands emojis.

Other celebrities sending support to Smollett include talk show maven Ellen DeGeneres, who tweeted: "Four years ago, @JussieSmollett came out on my show. I’m sending him and his family so much love today."

  • Phillybruh

    Wish I could go.... I personally think Jussie is in an abusive relationship. But for his careers sake I hope this is true.

  • Junkanoo

    That sounds like a decent line up except am not sure who Stormzy is and I haven't really checked out Janelle's latest album yet . Kylie isn't big in America but huge in Europe and other regions she has some catchy songs. I haven't been listening to music as much like I use to I hope its just a phase and not old age setting in.

  • Junkanoo

    Same , sounds like a good time

  • iWasteTime

  • Phillybruh

    It sounds like He got popped and choked out for what ever made his man upset. He can't go to set with a black eye and broken rib without all the questions. So his man probably concocted this story too save face because his man is some kind of non-profit nice guy.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

  • Phillybruh

    If your already doing kinky $hit with rope is anywhere off limits with a finger.

  • Peace

    She put on a good stage show period. She can get her coins.

  • Trace da Ace

    See I blame Drake for having these pseudo studio singers thinking they can rap.....and rappers thinking they can sing (with the help out autotune)....smdh....

  • Phillybruh

    I'm pretty sure they probably reached out first. Janet is coined up and can jump start this tour and sell it easily now.

  • Yoni7

    That was the only one of hers that I've ever read, I think. It was years ago. By the time I finished it, I knew that I was over the whole hood, baby daddy drama, money, gun, drug books.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    They could’ve been with a “straight” man that only wants to penetrate and not be penetrated.

    Other than Donald Goines, I was never into urban street lit either but this Ethic character I'm digging like I loved Easy Rawlins in Walter Mosley books.

  • Yoni7

    I've never read any of Donald Goines or Walter Mosley books. But I did read all of Iceberg Slim's books. Man oh man!

  • Phillybruh

    Oh coming from a gay man those lines are clearly drawn before you get started.....you know if you can play with it or not...lol I still think his man kicks his behind when he's in a mood.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Oh ok.. If that is the case, I hope he gets away from that situation safely???

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Latest on Jussey:

    Jussie Smollett didn’t want extra security in the week leading up to his attack this week.

    The 35-year-old actor, who stars on “Empire,” was offered additional security by Fox when he wasn’t working on set, reports TMZ.

    Last week, the television company offered to send helping hands after
    Smollett received a threatening letter with cutout letters reading “You
    will die black f-g.”

    Security on set was increased after the incident, but Smollett reportedly did not want bodyguards for his time off the clock.

    Hmmm....did he think he was superman?

  • oshh16

    I never read Iceberg Slim but of course I heard of em.

  • Jersey Girl

    nah .. he probably didnt take it seriously! That's actually pretty humble in his industry!

  • Elevated Soul

    OMG....Not another "Has-Been" Black entertainer virtue signaling her support for the agenda of "Hollywood and Democratic Establishment " for a story that is falling apart.

  • Yoni7

    Get into it. I'm currently reading Baby Teeth right now, by somebody. LOL I've had it for a while now. Either I can't get into it or don't have the time, or both. LOL

  • Yoni7

    I'll get into it. I've heard so much about him.

  • Eileen

    omg there were contemporaries! i read all og their books...

  • Eileen

    this "ish" is falling apart by the second. I see Janet out of jail oops I ment her marriage anyway...

  • Eileen

    he can always run into the arms of lee daniels with a small "l and a small d"

  • Eileen

    prolly...homosexual sex has no limits because the women sets the limits in a sexual relationship NOT the man hence if you have two men there are no limits it is all about their own sexual perversion..oops I ment sexual gratification to no end! nasty smh

  • TDK

    Janet leave your face alone, please.

  • ?jessica?

    I really wish she get rid of that make-up artist. He makes her look the the Grinch with those brows. She is way too pretty to be looking like that

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Thanks.

  • ?jessica?

    ????

  • SpiceGirl

    I will say.....they showed a pic of Jessie and he had a little cut under his eye...from what they said happened to him...I was expecting to see more damage per sey.....I did read his ribs were cracked......(cant see that) but...I just thought way more injury....(wouldn't the bleach some what burn his skin on his face???)

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Love Janet, but I hope her face morph back to an earlier version!

    Somehow Jada lost some or much of her facial malfunction, cheek implants gone bad, unflattering fillers or injectables, harsh facial lines, etc.! Hollywood does a number on some women!

    Aging is a natural process, very few people are going to look the same or as youthful looking of their 20s and 30s, Genetics!

    Example, Kelly Rowland, Tika Sumpter, Naomi Campbell, Angela Bassett, Alfre Woodard, Iman, Beverly Johnson!

  • KcoolMuziq

    Janet IS NOT a HAS BEEN! She just set a record for having ANOTHER hit record in EACH decade.

    The black community is the only community that throws away their entertainers so quickly .

  • Y me?

    This early on i don't think all the information would be made public. I think it's damaging to current and future victims to presume that they are lying. Neutrality is understandable, but straight up dismissing a victims claim seems so cruel

  • Phillybruh

    You probably allow your man to do more too you sexually than a gay man does.

  • SpiceGirl

    I agree......That's why I try hard to reserve judgment until all the info is out (key word...TRY) : }

  • Parent

    "Four years ago, @JussieSmollett came out on my show. I’m sending him and his family so much love today. ??"

    What she mean to say is "Because if he didn't come on her show 4 years ago, she wouldn't give a ish about this whole gay story line..

  • Yui

    I’m so tired of these dragon lady brows, omg.

  • KcoolMuziq

    When your in the public eye U have to look your BEST at ALL TIMES. Women in particular. Especially black women. Black people can be so critical. The pressure is always on. Which is why black women that are known for their beauty take that chance. But EVERYBODY in the industry gets work done. If they say they don’t they lyin.

  • Allihave2say

    Janet looks like a cat. All the plastic surgery, cheek implants, nose chopping and face rearrangement have not faired well for her. You can tell she is still heavily influenced by the Middle Eastern Culture of her marriage to Wassim. Her eyebrows, style of clothing and hair is all them.

  • Allihave2say

    This is not Janet's best look for public consumption. I believe she would have aged well naturally.

  • Allihave2say

    The entertainers throw us away. the black women chop and screw their faces to look like white women. The black men chase other races and praise them publicly while spitting on the women who look like their mothers.

  • Allihave2say

    I saw the hands.

  • Allihave2say

    This is very nicely done. I love it. Do you have a graphic site for services?

  • Lady_Elle

    I was thinking the same...

  • Lady_Elle

    I have been thinking... Tawanna Brawley circa 2019; everytime I heard about this alleged attack today.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I think she still looks beautiful. Especially after having a baby at 50.

  • KcoolMuziq

    LIES!
    Sex symbols Idris Elba, & Shemar Moore(whom I’ve both worked with) exclusively dates black women. Denzil,Samuel Jackson,Morris Chestnut,Boris Kodjoe, Snoop Dogg & LL Cool J (another sex symbol I’ve worked with). All are married to black women.

  • ZZZ

    Denzel

  • Allihave2say

    This is true but they are amongst the few!

  • Allihave2say

    Janet's natural essence was beautiful unfortunately she didn't see it when she looked at herself, hence the face change.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    I love Janet BUT HUNTY LOOKING A BIT ECCENTRIC.....Those EYEBROWS ARE A NO!!!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Thank you

  • Elevated Soul

    I wasn't aware that my comment about a 50 plus year old woman being a "has-been" was about the Black community though......

    You really took my comment too seriously.....

  • The Chosen 1.

    Janet looks a hot mess now, due to all the plastic surgery. Her facial cheeks look like 2 azz cheeks spread apart. Her nasal passage on her nose looks like she has been sniffing that stuff.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Janet has always been supportive of gay rights and organizations like glaad.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    he knew it was a bitter one night stand who can't let go. likely, the person has nothing to lose and are acting a monkey. if he was truly attacked, jussie has an idea of who's behind it.

  • Eileen

    And at the end of the day/night we wake up male and female the.way God intended !

  • GuestSTAR

    Sht, I know women outside the industry who get cosmetic procedures. IT'S A LOT more common then you might think, it's just they don't discuss it with everyone because they don't want to be shamed.

  • KcoolMuziq

  • Rayscoty

    Chicago need to be working on them unsolved murders. Ms. Smollett and this trade attack is not important... She ok..

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Rhyme and Reason

    I get why they do it, for sure, their looks is a part of their worth or package!

    I know plenty of everyday regular women who get Botox and other fillers, but don’t look weird!

    Many celebrities don’t seem to take care of their skin, given how much makeup they wear over time, hot lights, sun damage, diet, wrong products, etc.! I’m an esthetician, and see so many products and treatments that works well to stave-off aging or prep for HD cameras! I think they get paranoid, concerned, lazy or tire, and go for the quick fix!

  • The Chosen 1.

    the truth. back then, she did look great but now too much surgery.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Yes the very hot lights on sets can be very damaging on the skin. Plus dark skin African American people need brighter lighting. Which is one of the reasons they prefer to cast lighter skin blacks like Vanessa Williams(whose skin is not what U think it is) Add the make up on top of that. It can all put decades of age on U.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I agree!

    Vanessa has always had skin problems. But, I think she uses Botox or other fillers responsibly, not that porcelain doll look like so many celebs!

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Allihave2say

    She's beautiful here but this pic is a chopped nose and bleached skin. See her on Good Times and Fame.

  • Allihave2say

    She the line from the nose ends to the cheeks and the bleached out skin? She is very LaToya ish looking. she never needed to touch her face.

  • KcoolMuziq

    “See her on Good Times & Fame.”

    That could be said about ANY female celebrity when they were younger.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Janet has ALWAYS had that line. Your reaching.

  • Allihave2say

    I'm not speaking on her cheek bones. ALL the Jackson kids have the same strong cheeks. I'm speaking of her chopped off nose lines.

  • Allihave2say

    We're not discussing ANY CELEBRITY we are discussing JANET JACKSON'S FACE. THANK YOU. WE'RE DONE.

  • KcoolMuziq

    EVERY black female singer has had a nose job . Even Patti Labelle.
