Happy Birthday to Janet Jackson!

Happy birthday to Janet Damita Jo Jackson! That’s Janet, Ms. Jackson, if you’re nasty… 

That’s right, singer/actress Janet Jackson, the tenth and youngest child in the Jackson family, is 57 today!

We first saw her as a young performer in 1976 on the TV series “The Jacksons,” and then fell in love with her on shows like “Diff’rent Strokes” and “Good Times.”

She cemented her status as a pop icon with the release of albums “Control” and “Rhythm Nation 1814” in the 1980s.

Today, she’s a mom to son Eissa, she’s getting ready to go on tour this summer, and she’s still making music!

In honor of her birthday, here are the Top Ten Janet Jackson Songs from the video music era!
