Janet Jackson blames the economy

Janet Jackson steps out

Promoter, Kyodo Yokohama, blamed the recession for the cancellation of the Japanese leg of Janet Jackson’s Rock Witchu tour. The concerts will be rescheduled later in the year when the market to picks back up. Earlier, Janet had to cancel a few dates in the US due to “vertigo”.

Of course, the other, much bigger, reason is that concerts are decidedly less fun when the words from your favorite songs are replaced by loud wheezing and requests for more cupcakes.
