Janet Jackson is The 80s Forum star.

Janet Damita Jo Jackson (born May 16, 1966) is an American singer-songwriter, producer, dancer and actress. She is the youngest child of the Jackson music family and the sister of Michael Jackson. Janet ranks as the ninth most successful artist in the history of rock and roll and the second most successful female artist of all time behind Madonna.

Jackson initially stepped into the limelight as a young actress, appearing in television shows. Upon her father's insistance, she released two studio albums; neither garnered much attention nor success. Jackson is well-known for her detailed dance choreography and music videos. After a brief marriage to James DeBarge, Jackson set out to find her own identity. She collaborated with producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and the trio created Jackson's breakout album, Control (1986) and the socially-focused follow-up, Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989).
