Janet Jackson recently graced the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam and sat down for an interview with the magazine. The “Miss You Much” entertainer was photographed in countless outfits for the photoshoot and proved that she can be a chameleon. From long gowns to blazer jackets, Janet stunned throughout the whole spread, per The Inquisitr.

Janet told the publication that fans can expect new music from her soon. She is currently in the middle of producing a new track but doesn’t want to set a fixed time frame for it just yet. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, she recently gave rapper Ty Dolla $ign a song for him to jump on.

The singer also spilled that she has been offered new acting roles but kept pretty hush about what they involve. However, the “I Get Lonely” songstress insisted she will reveal everything to the public in due time.

The “Let’s Wait A While” icon has had a career that has lasted longer than four decades. When Janet was questioned on what she thinks the secret to her success is, she simply stated its because she’s passionate and loves pop music. She claimed that the key is to listen carefully and pick up everything new that is happening on the street.

As for new music, Janet admitted that she loves R&B singer H.E.R. who Janet says reminds her of herself.

Janet also talked about how her life changed when she welcomed her first child, Eissa, at the age of 50. The “Love Will Never Do (Without You)” chart-topper explained how her son has affected her in different ways.

“Having a baby has opened a new love, a journey of very spiritual motherhood. And Eissa showed me more about patience. I am patient. But he made me feel that I needed to be more patient [laugh]. Not to mention, I had some symptoms of OCD. Ever since having kids, I became comfortable with getting dirty. If it gets a bit dirty, it doesn’t matter,” she said.

Janet then went on to talk to readers about fashion. She said her style advice for young women is to always be themselves.

“Always be yourself. I think that is the most important point. For me, fashion must be your personal impression. No one is alike. We are not the same Oreo cookies from the factory.”

For makeup, she said she likes to keep it simple, applying only lipstick and mascara every day. Other than that, she likes to keep her skin clean and not stained by “thick layers” of products.
