Janet Jackson Reportedly Converts to Islam

Written by on September 28, 2015


Pop temptress Janet Jackson seems to be toning down her raunchy act according to international media reports amid claims that she has converted to Islam.

The 49-year-old singer  is said to have followed in her brother Jermaine’s footsteps in converting when she married 40-year-old billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana in 2012.

And it is now claimed in British tabloid daily The Sun – according to UAE website Emirates 24/7, that she is taking the religion so seriously, her show has undergone some serious changes – not least to her previously raunchy costumes and dance moves.

Sources have reportedly told The Sun: “She feels like she has found a home with her new religion and has told members of her family, who completely respect her choice.

“She has spent a great deal of time studying the religion and its followers. The days of raunchy dance moves and sexual lyrics are long gone for Janet.”

The newspaper report added that the star ends her current world tour shows with “Insha Allah.”

It is a far cry from the Super Bowl halftime show in 2004 that saw the star court controversy in a performance alongside Justin Timberlake, when part of her costume was ripped open revealing one of her breasts.

Clearly the news has taken the world by storm, publishers around the globe have carried the story, although not everyone is certain.

UAE society magazine website Ahlan! reported that the question of “Has she or hasn’t she,” has been on everyone’s lips since her wedding.

The article added: “Now sources close to the couple have confirmed that Janet Jackson has indeed converted to Islam.”

Al Arabiya News has tried contacting the star’s agents in America to back up the claims, but at the time of publishing this article still had no confirmation.
