Janet’s newfound creativity and inspiration!

Jimmy Jam told ET, Janet Jackson is
via ET Online

The Together Again singer welcomed her first child, son Eissa, in January (17) and in May, she confirmed she had split from Eissa’s father Wissam Al Mana. However, despite going through some major life changes in recent months, the 51-year-old is “so happy”, Jimmy Jam told ET Online at the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Awards in Beverly Hills on Thursday (22 Jun 17).

Janet has been living in London but she keeps in touch with the producer via text message or FaceTime so he can talk to her baby. “I get FaceTime (calls) at like two in the morning, usually when I’m wrapping up in the studio,” he shared. “It’s always just Eissa (on FaceTime), she’s in the background somewhere. He’s the cutest baby in the history of babies.”

She has been largely out of the spotlight since she quit her world tour to focus on her family but she is ready to get back to performing and recording music, Jimmy said, adding that she is “excited to go back to her day job.”  He also assured her that she will have newfound creativity and inspiration for her music now that she’s a mum, and she’s started to discover that for herself.

“A whole different reservoir of creativity, of cadence, of love, and all these things that have always been with you but it doesn’t really come out until (you become a parent),” he added. “She’s recognising that.”

    I’m very excited for Janet. She is a beautiful person and I thoroughly enjoyed and reflected on the messages on her Unbreakable album.
