*Janet Jackson said she is through with recording full-length albums and will focus on putting out singles and securing quality acting roles for the remainder of her career – this according to her ex-boyfriend and producer Jermaine Dupri.
“I can tell you that she’s not working on an album. We just did the one song ‘Nothing’ for the ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?’ soundtrack,” Dupri tells Vibe. “Last time I heard she really didn’t want to do an album. She wanted to just do singles every once in a while. She’s looked at the marketplace – albums are not really doing what they usually do when you put all this budget out there. Janet is just trying to figure out her landscape.”
Dupri says his former girlfriend’s future in film looks promising.
“She has a lot of work going on that’s keeping her in the right direction,” he says. “The movie came out, which is the biggest Tyler Perry movie he has had thus far. It looks like her star power as an actress is still there. And she’s about to do the other movie, ‘For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf’ with Mariah Carey, Kerry Washington and Whoopi Goldberg.”
