About Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson is quite easily one of the biggest-selling musical artists of all time; she has sold over 188 million records worldwide; a Grammy Award winner; producer; actress; Number One New York Times bestselling author, and much more.
Born on May 16th, 1966 in Gary, Indiana, as the 10th child of the world-renowned Jackson family, Janet became a star in her own right. She had a fantastic work-ethic and showed brilliant dedication in whatever she did.
In addition to portraying some wonderful characters on TV at a young age, Jackson also released her debut album, Janet Jackson, at just 16.
In 1993, she starred in her first movie role in Poetic Justice, and even won critical acclaim for her performance.
Jackson has no doubt had a highly-successful and fulfilling career and life, something Julien’s Auctions will preserve in their upcoming event.
