Janet Jackson Recovering, Denies Cancer Reports

On Christmas Eve, Janet Jackson announced that she was postponing her upcoming world tour due to an unspecific medical issue that required surgery. Yesterday, reports surfaced that doctors had found a tumor on her vocal cords, possibly cancerous. Today, Jackson has responded to the rumors by tweeting a video of the track “The Great Forever” off of her new album Unbreakable, which includes lyrics like “Sources say but where ya gettin’ it/ Don’t create the truth you like.” The video concludes with a message declaring that “The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I’m recovering. My doctors have approved my concerts as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled.”
