Today is the one and only Janet Jackson’s 50th birthday. She recently announced that she is expecting her first child with her husband so this is going to be an amazing year for her.
Jackson is one of the true pop icons and really is the whole package – a fantastic artist and songwriter, but also an incredible dancer. I am a huge fan of her work in the 80s in particular and it only seemed right to share one of my favourite Janet Jackson songs for her big day. ‘The Pleasure Principle’ was featured on Jackson’s 1986 album Control and its music video is one of my favourites of all time. Beautifully simple, it features Jackson showcasing her iconic dance moves in an epic solo dance performance.
