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.
