Janet Jackson hospitalized for unknown reason, cancels concert

Janet Jackson had to be rushed to the hospital for an undisclosed reason right before she was scheduled to perform in Montreal last night. She has to cancel her concert, part of her “Rock Witchu” tour. Her next scheduled performance is tomorrow night, October 1, in Boston and from what I can tell it is not yet known if she’ll be able to make it.

A representative for Janet Jackson says the singer has been hospitalized after falling ill shortly before a concert.

According to statement released by W&W Public Relations, the singer canceled her concert in Montreal on Monday after she “got suddenly ill” during her sound check and had to be rushed to the hospital just before show time.

The statement says Jackson is being monitored at the hospital and hopes to reschedule the show. No further information was given about Jackson’s condition.

Yesterday a story came out in the NY Post that Janet’s longterm boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri, leaned over and got sick right on her skirt when they were partying last week in NY for his 36th birthday party. I would speculate that maybe she caught some kind of stomach flu, but that was last Tuesday and usually you catch a virus like that soon and within a day or two it runs it course. She performed two other dates last week and was fine. It sounds like the puking incident was caused by too much booze within a short period of time.

    She is huge now, and I bet she is trying to lose weight. It may have been diet pills or something. She used to have a nice figure not she looks soooo big… ICK !

  2. Exiled says:

    @ Tia … She’s huge? Maybe if people didn’t say celebritys are ‘huge’ when they are @ weight or maybe 10lbs heavy would alleviate some of the eating disorders.

    Yeah, I was thinking that she looks a little thicker than she usually does, but she is still thin. She’s got some sexy curves, but I don’t consider her to be fat. Maybe by Hollyweird’s standards. Of course, that yellow jumpsuit wouldn’t be flattering on ANYONE, imho. :?

  4. JoGirl says:

    Yeah, the girls from 90210 would look thick in that get-up. I hope Janet’s OK! Maybe it’s just a terrible migraine. Then again, she’s been torturing her body with yo-yo dieting for decades, so she could be having heart problems.

    If she’s big/huge, then I am a frickin whale.

    Hospitalized for cancer of the clothing. Look at that get-up.

  7. caffie says:

    Huge. Wow. Really? I mean, c’mon… she’s FAR FAR FAR from HUGE. She’s not even fat. Hell… it might even be a stretch to say she’s overweight. She’s curvy.

    I hope you never see me, Tia… I’d hate to hear what you’d tag me as. :?
