Janet Jackson shared a video on Twitter Saturday (Feb. 13, 2021) saying she is “thankful” for God and fans after her album Control charted at No. 1 35 years later after its release.

“I was at home just the other day by myself and I began to cry. I was crying because I was so thankful for all that God has blessed me with. All that he has given me. For Him being in my life.”

“And I am so thankful for all of you being in my life. You’re so special to me,” Janet continued. “And I want to thank all of you for making Control number one once again after 35 years. I never in a million years, I would never think that this would happen. I really appreciate you and I love you so, so much. Thank you.”

After its release Control spent 91 weeks on the Billboard top R&B and hip-hop album chart, peaking at No. 1 for the first time on April 19, 1986.

In a statement published on Friday (Feb. 12, 2021), Justin Timberlake said that he had “failed” both Jackson and his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears.

Timberlake tore off a part of Jackson’s outfit in a planned stunt at the Super Bowl, exposing her barely-concealed breast in the process, but was largely spared criticism amid the sustained controversy that followed.

Meanwhile, Jackson, who dubbed the incident a “wardrobe malfunction,” had her songs banned from radio and her career permanently scarred by the episode.

Jackson did not reference Timberlake in her message.
