Janet Jackson opens up about the creation process for her new album.

UPDATE // MAY 31:

I’d like to point out Janet Jackson IS IN THE RECORDING STUDIO.

If you’re familiar with her Billboard interview (below), you’d know this, but the good sis blessed us with a visual of the creation process. Get nasty!

EARLIER // MAY 17:

Janet lands in the new issue of Billboard Magazine. The photoshoot is fierce, and the interview revealing.

There’s a lot to sift through, but the biggest takeaway is the pop star is writing and recording new music(!!!).

 

 

Here’s a copy + paste quote from Billboard about that:

Talk about the music you’re writing now.

“I wish I could. I’m not trying to avoid the question and be secretive, but the truth is that I don’t try to analyze the creative process while it’s still ongoing. I’m very intuitive about writing. Anything can inspire me. This morning, I saw this lovely elderly Japanese woman walking down the streets of Hollywood wearing an adorable bonnet with bright red flowers. She might be a song. I remembered an especially painful chapter in my early life last night before going to bed. That might be a song. I woke up this morning and heard a bird chirping in a rhythm that captivated my heart. Maybe that will turn into a new groove. Like everyone else, my feelings are fluid. My ideas are fleeting. I like to keep it that way. I can’t decide in advance what a song or an album concept will be. I have to let those songs and concepts come to me rather than chase them down.”

She adds: “I’m glad I’m not methodical or self-conscious as a writer. It’s important that I maintain a let-it-happen-when-it-happens approach. I don’t want to strain or stress. I want to be a channel for whatever images and emotions are running through my imagination. Spontaneity is so important to me. It allows for surprise, and, for me, surprise is what breaks up the boredom of daily life. When I finally get to the music that genuinely expresses what I’m experiencing in the moment, I feel free. Music does that for me. Its healing properties are extraordinary.”

 

 

There’s something to be said about living in the moment. I think most of us Millennials are either constantly reliving our past or planning how to stay alive in the near-future. Very rarely do we stop and smell the roses, so Janet’s invaluable wisdom is much appreciated… especially when it’ll translate into her music.

 

 

“And while we’re talking about positivity, let me also say that my son, even in his short 17 months on the planet, has showed me that love, no matter how deeply you believe you have experienced that emotion, can always go deeper. Love is limitless. And for someone like me, raised in show business where self-concern is always a priority, how fortunate I am now to be concerned, first and foremost, with the welfare of someone else. Day after day and night after night, holding my baby in my arms, I am at peace. I am blessed. I feel bliss. In those moments, all is right with the world.” ???. . . . . #iconic #janetjackson #janfam #jtribe #janettour #stateoftheworldtour #sotwtour #queenofpop #rhythmnation #thevelvetrope #allforyou #control #20yo #discipline #janetalbum #madefornow #unbreakable #sotwtour #designofadecade #numberones #iconaward #legend #MFN #bbmas #queenofpop #icon #stateoftheworld #sotw #janet25
