Janet Jackson's kicks off the State Of The World Tour with an important message.

The pop star has been touring on and off for a number of years now, but the iconic singer is back in fighting form.

Jackson launched the newly-revamped tour in Lafayette, Louisiana last night (Sep. 7), her first post-baby show. The show opened with a video condemning white supremacy, domestic terrorism, and fascism, TheFader reports. Watch that here:


The video begins by naming unarmed black men who were killed by police officers, followed by audio clips condemning white supremacy and inequality. It then transitioned into Rhythm Nation cut “The Knowledge,” before she charged through a setlist of 35(!!!) hits, including “Nasty,” “Burnitup!,” “All Nite,” “No Sleep” and “Well Traveled.”

A bunch of the mainstream sites are also reporting about her 65 lbs weightless ahead of the kickoff show. Dammn, baby.
