Happy Birthday Janet Jackson!

Janet Jackson is the youngest of nine siblings in the famed Jackson family, and has her own success with an independent career that has spanned recordings, television, and film. She appeared as a regular on the 1970s television comedy series Good Times and later as a teenager in the dance-oriented series Fame. Jackson took control of her career, moved out on her own, and developed her own sound and influential style, with her breakthrough record Control, which featured five singles that topped the rhythm-and-blues charts, including two Top Ten pop hits, “What Have You Done for Me Lately” and “Nasty.”
