Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Janet Jackson. By Songfacts®.

Janet is the youngest of the nine Jackson children. She was only three years old when her brothers became pop superstars as The Jackson 5, topping the charts with their first record "<a href="https://www.songfacts.com/facts/the-jackson-5/i-want-you-back">I Want You Back</a>."

She is the only artist with three studio albums - <b>Control</b> (1986), <b>Rhythm Nation 1814</b> (1989), and <b>janet.</b> (1993) - with at least five Top 10 US singles each. <b>Rhythm Nation 1814</b> landed a remarkable seven singles in the Top 5 - a feat even her brother never matched.

John Singleton's <i>Poetic Justice</i> is often touted as Janet's acting debut, but she was an old pro on small screen sitcoms long before that 1993 drama. Throughout the late '70s and early '80s, she played Penny Gordon on <i>Good Times</i>, JoJo Ashton on <i>A New Kind of Family</i> and Charlene Duprey, Willis' girlfriend, on <i>Diff'rent Strokes</i>. In 1985, she reluctantly joined the cast of <i>Fame</i> as Cleo Hewitt. She told <i>The Observer</i> she only agreed to appear on the musical soap opera because her parents wanted her to, but she shared a different story with the <i>Melody Maker</i> in 1987: "I really enjoyed working in <i>Fame</i>. That was when I broke out. I really enjoyed being with the kids, they were a crazy bunch. That was the most interesting, but also the most difficult times of my life. I really got to see things, I was forced to see life in a very real way."
