Janet: A Life in the Spotlight

From her early days performing with big brother Michael through her evolution into a sexy, daring solo artist, Janet Jackson, 37, has lived her life in the public eye. As the singer-actress releases her new CD, Damita Jo, take a look at some of her most revealing moments.


Jackson first became acquainted with record producer Jermaine Dupri when he remixed her 2001 hit "Someone." Then in 2002, after a spokesperson for Jackson insisted to PEOPLE that the two were "just friends," Dupri admitted that they had been dating since July of that year. Rumors abound that the couple (in West Hollywood on March 20) are engaged.
