Noted fave’s fave Janet Jackson sat down with an uncanceled Jimmy Fallon last night to discuss her new album and tour of the same name, Black Diamond. The legend previously announced that she’d be giving the gays everything they want on Instagram.

Hey U Guys! I’ve heard all your wishes and now from my lips to your ears. I’m working on my new album and going on a brand new World Tour this summer! Both titled ✨ “Black Diamond”. ✨ — Black Diamonds are the toughest of all the diamonds, the hardest to cut. I see that as the hardest to hurt or destroy. There is a lot that I have endured. I see myself as a Black Diamond in its purest form. I’m a rock, I have ruff edges but I keep moving forward. I want to show you my strength as well as give you strength. — I love u guys so much and I’m #SoExcited to share this new era with you. See u soon! #BlackDiamond 🖤💎🍓😘 — A special pre-sale code will be sent ONLY to my mailing list subscribers tomorrow, Feb. 11!

While on The Tonight Show, Ms. Jackson also shared some updates on her three-year-old son, Eissa Al Mana, who already seems to be following in the Jackson family’s musical footsteps [cue the opening chords of “I Want You Back”].
And the Rock Hall of Fame inductee dove into her vaunted back catalog to discuss how men catcalling her led to the 1986 classic “Nasty” and why she wore a key in her earring for all those years. Turns out it was the key to her animal cages, because she grew up with a veritable menagerie of pets including peacocks and giraffes—you know, like everyone does.
No word yet on when or whether the tour will include Australian dates this year, so stay tuned!
