August 22, 2008: "Janet Jackson Releasing Own Range Of Underwear With Australian Designer Bruno Schiavi"
Janet Jackson is releasing her own range of underwear. Designed by the singer in collaboration with Australian designer Bruno Schiavi, the line is named after Janet's 1987 hit "Pleasure Principle."
Janet said: "People have come to me with other ideas but lingerie is a passion for me. Just like music and acting, I can't do it unless I put 100 per cent into it. I've always hated it when lingerie is uncomfortable."
The underwear line will debut in the U.S. in November before being sold around the world and will feature bras and pants. All items will be priced under $40.
Janet, 42, knows the importance of good underwear only too well.
In 2004, she famously had a 'wardrobe malfunction' at the Super Bowl, where her breast popped out on live TV as she performed with Justin Timberlake.
Janet has also previously talked about people's perception of her, saying she has learned to accept her body.
Janet said: "I like myself a lot more than I used to. I had a very difficult time in my 20s especially. It was hard for me to look in the mirror and find something that I liked about myself. There is a moment when you get older when your metabolism slows down and you don't feel like working out any more, so you don't keep yourself fit anymore, but that's your decision. Why should you be judged for it?"

Birth name: Janet Damita Jo Jackson
Born: May 16, 1966 Gary, Indiana, United States.
Janet Jackson biography (bio):
Janet Damita Jo Jackson is an American actress, singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, activist, and pop icon.
Jackson is ranked as the ninth most successful act in the history of rock and roll and the second most successful female recording artist of all time in the U.S. behind Madonna according to Billboard magazine. Guinness World Records lists her as the world's most searched-for person in internet history.
Jackson scored ten number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, fifteen number ones on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and seventeen number ones on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart from 1986 to 2007. In addition to her commercial accomplishments Jackson has won five Grammy Awards, received an Oscar-nomination at the 66th annual Academy Awards and was awarded the first 'Icon' award from MTV.
In 1984, at age eighteen, Jackson eloped with James DeBarge, a member of the singing group DeBarge. News of the couple's nuptials was reported on Entertainment Tonight. Jackson would later admit that the marriage was not a good one, and that the family�particularly Joe�disapproved of the union. Jackson was granted an annulment in March 1985. There have been allegations made by DeBarge's brother that Jackson and DeBarge produced a daughter who was born shortly after their breakup and lived with her aunt Rebbie Jackson. Jackson has refuted these rumors.
In 1991, Jackson and long-time lover/business partner Ren� Elizondo Jr., were secretly married in a private ceremony. Hoping to avoid public scrutiny, the two sought to keep their marriage a closely guarded secret, while continuing to present themselves as simply live in lovers in the eye of the media. As the decade drew to a close, both Jackson and Elizondo admitted that they had become more business partners than a couple. In 1999, the two ended their eight year marriage. The public only found out about the marriage as the two were going through a divorce. In 2001, Rene Elizondo sued Jackson for $25 million. Their court battle ended in 2003 with the divorce finalized and Elizondo being awarded about half the amount he sued for.
Since 2001, Janet has been involved with hip-hop producer Jermaine Dupri. In the time that they've been together, there have been numerous rumors that the two have married, though they have consistently denied these reports although she admits that the two do live together. Dupri appeared in Janet's video for "I Want You," while Janet returned the favor by appearing in Dupri's video for his 2005 single, "Gotta Getcha."
During the promotion of her 20 Y.O. album when she was on the Oprah show, she had admitted that she wanted to have children eventually. Oprah Winfrey immediately replied, "...well I guess it should happen soon..." with a concerned tone, since Janet had turned 40 years old at that time.
