Janet Jackson Dances to Nicki Minaj During Big NYC Show

Janet Jackson had a lot going on in her life the past few months but you wouldn’t know it by watching her return to the stage in New York City last night where she performed all her big hits … and mixed in a little Nicki Minaj for good measure.

Jackson headlined the Panorama Music Festival on Randall’s Island to mark the beginning of her ongoing “State of the World” tour.

The setlist for the show included all the classic Janet songs a fan could want — “Miss You Much,” “Alright,” “Got ’til It’s Gone,” “That’s the Way Love Goes,” and many more — and she even slipped in a little “Chun-Li” during a medley that included “Nasty.”

It’s been a rough few months for the pop star, who is dealing with a nasty custody battle with her ex, Wissam Al Mina. As The Blast first reported, Jackson sent sheriffs deputies racing to check on the safety of her 1-year-old son while he was with Al Mina after a dispute with her nanny over the WiFi password.

Jackson is also mourning the loss of her father, Joe Jackson, who passed away last month at the age of 89.
