Janet Jackson Issues Statement on Instagram Tour Drama


Rhythm Nation/BMG

Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Janet Jackson fans have been complaining about having their Instagram accounts taken down after sharing footage from her Unbreakable Tour. Now, the singer is explaining her actions.

“My team is passionate about protecting the intellectual property we are creating for the tour and possible future projects,” the singer wrote on Facebook. “It was never their intention, acting on my behalf, to have social media accounts removed,” she wrote. “Permitting the use of long clips does present a contractual problem for these projects. I hope you understand.”

Jackson then encouraged fans to continue posting short video clips. “I trust the fans will use their short recordings for their own memories and to share on their social media networks of choice,” she added. “I have asked my team to change their approach and allow you to engage socially with these videos. I know I wouldn’t be here without the love I stand on.”

It’s a good thing Janet cleared this up as there’s a ton of shows coming up before her extensive trek wraps up June 25, 2016 in Wantagh, New York.
