Janet Jackson made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and looked nothing short of incredible.
The “Together Again” hitmaker wowed viewers in a low-cut black lace top which was semi-sheer and displayed her decolletage. The music icon paired the look with a leather jacket with cut-open sleeves and loose-fitted pants of the same material. Jackson rocked black boots and accessorized herself with large gold triangular earrings and numerous bracelets.
The living legend has been known for reinventing her image over the years. She wore long dark braids that fell down to her waist, which she styled up in a high ponytail. Jackson also opted for a glossy lip for the occasion.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, at the beginning of the year, she was seen wearing long dreadlocks, a hairstyle she had wanted since the 1990s.
Jackson shared a new image of herself to Instagram wearing the ensemble, where she looked very fierce. The “Love Will Never Do (Without You)” chart-topper was photographed from head-to-toe in a hallway and stared into the camera lens with a strong expression. Jackson placed one foot in front of the other and raised one hand to her jacket.
In her caption, she told fans to tune in to Jimmy Fallon and referred to the show’s host as her “silly friend.”
In the span of four hours, Jackson’s post racked up more than 80,000 likes and over 2,600 comments, proving to be popular with her 4.1 million followers.
“You slayed this look. Justice came out to play!!!” one user wrote, referencing her character in the ’90s movie Poetic Justice.
“DAMNN BABY! You looking great queen,” another supporter shared, adding an eye-heart face emoji.
“You’re fine as hell living legend!” a third fan remarked.
“Yassss Queen.. I’m loving everything about this look! YOU BETTER WERKKKKK IT!!! #BlackDiamond,” a fourth admirer wrote.
In her interview, Jackson opened up about the story behind her hit single “Nasty.”
The inspiration for the song came about when she and her friend were on their way to a dance class in Minneapolis. At the time, they were staying downtown in a hotel. When they walked out, a bunch of older guys that was standing against a wall started calling Jackson and her friend names.
The situation annoyed and upset her a little, which influenced her to go to the studio that same night and write the song.
Jackson admitted in the same interview that the lyrics — “Miss Jackson if ya nasty” — are something fans have remembered her for. The “Made for Now” entertainer expressed that she gets called that by everyone, including other entertainers.
