Janet Jackson is known for her work as a singer and an actress. She has also served as a choreographer and producer during her career. After her birth in Gary, Indiana, she moved with her eight siblings and parents to Encino, California. While in California, her brothers started the Jackson Five and she was a part of it on occasion. When she was 16, she began her solo music career with a self-titled album. To create her own image, she had to find a way to distance herself from her family. She signed on with Virgin Records for a contract valued at $32 to $50 million.
Her first album with the new recording album was titled, “Janet” and had five singles reach number one. The song “That's the Way Love Goes” won a Grammy. At this point in time, she had the largest recording contract for a female. Following her first album, Janet Jackson released “The Velvet Rope” and “All for You”. Together, these albums sold more than 16 million copies around the globe. By 2004, she was listed as the most-searched story in the entire history of the Internet. This was due to a certain wardrobe malfunction that occurred during the Super Bowl half-time show.

Her personal net worth is at an estimated $150 million, although her projects have made a gross revenue of $1.2 billion over the course of her career. Her career has also served to bring African-American artists into the mainstream. Although it is more common today, the Jackson Five and Janet Jackson were some of the first mainstream black stars in the 1980s.
