Poor old Janet :(

Being Janet Jackson must be a bit rubbish these days.

Having wriggled out of her contract at Virgin, where they'd all but given up on her, she went off to Island. There, Dallas Austin hooked her up with a whole host of hot producers, who helped her craft an album that had a decent chance of being labelled her "comeback".

Except, it looks like Island have bailed on her, too. Here's what she told

"The label and myself haven’t quite seen eye to eye since the Feedback single so they've kind of basically stopped all promotion. I'm trying to figure out a way to say this, but just to say it and to be quite honest, they just stopped all promotion whatsoever on the album so I don’t think you’re going to hear another single off this album."


But Janet's still planning to go out on tour this "fall" - there's even a dedicated website here - so maybe she can earn enough cold hard cash to start releasing her new stuff online, like that Radiohead.

But this whole debacle does make you wonder. If Janet has fallen out with two successive record labels in a row, is it them or her?
