Janet Jackson debuted her new hairstyle at the end of December, and she has been treating her social media followers with selfies ever since. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the music icon was spotted with dreadlocks for the first time on December 31. The “What Have You Done for Me Lately” hitmaker arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City before the year came to an end, and she spent New Year’s Day in the city that is also known as the Big Apple.

For her latest Instagram upload, Jackson shared a new selfie, which appeared to have been taken on a plane. The “Because of Love” songstress wore her dreads up in a ponytail and wrapped them over one shoulder. She rocked a black hoodie and accessorized with a thin necklace. She put on a pair of matte gray, thick-framed glasses and seemed to have posed makeup-free. The legend boasted her natural beauty and looked comfy in the shot.

Jackson smiled directly at the camera and flashed her white teeth while she rested her head on the wall.

It isn’t clear where Jackson was heading when this photo was taken. However, she may be heading back to see her son, Eissa, as it is his third birthday on January 3. He wasn’t spotted with her when she arrived in New York so her visit to the city may have been a quick one. The singer isn’t one for posting content of her child, but that could change over time.
