Janet Jackson’s List of Tour Demands Released, Bans Jokes About Family

Given that Janet Jackson still only fairly recently lost her brother Michael- to whom she seemed quite close- it seems only fair that she would request comedians who may open for her not joke about her oft-mocked deceased sibling.
