Listen Live

Superstar Janet Jackson has thrilled audiences around the world, not only on screen in her videos, but also live in person on tour. Janet’s tours are are in fact some of the most-grossing tours of all time. The Janet world Tour, the second tour by Janet had her performing on 4 continents 18 countries within the span of 17 months with 123 shows–the most shows Janet has done for any concert. Total attendance for this tour is around 2.5million. And the Velvet Rope World Tour, Janet’s third tour supporting her 6th studio album of the same name. She visited 5 continents and 120 shows. The world wide gross for velvet rope is $78,000,000.

And even now in 2015, at almost 50 years old, she’s on tour again. But how does she do it? Here’s 5 steps Janet lives by:

1. Change up your routine often: “I don’t like to work out, and I get bored easily,” Jackson says. “Tony [her trainer] is great. He comes up with something new all the time. When I’m getting ready for a tour, I’ll work out with the dancers to build my endurance. He’ll put us in teams, and we’ll do all sorts of drills and races. Everybody is drenched with sweat before we start one dance step.”

2. Get slim with sports: “Tony knows that I love sports, so  that’s what we’ll often do,” Jackson says. “There are times when I don’t want to run on the beach, so to get me to run on the beach, he’ll bring a football. I’m just like a dog with a tennis ball—I get so excited. And we do drills. Sometimes we go to the batting cages and hit balls. He switches it up all the time. And that’s what I love.”
