It's no secret that I love Janet Jackson and I was really looking forward to seeing her Unbreakable tour this summer, but a shocking announcement has put the tour on hold.

Janet told fans via social media on Christmas Eve that dates through at least the spring would be rescheduled due to her needing upcoming surgery:

According to a report from RadarOnline, it turns out that surgery is because her doctors found a tumor in her throat and are worried it could be cancerous.

Throat cancer could potentially be career-ending for her, and treatments would be intense and aggressive.

I'm hopeful the tests will come back negative, and she will be back in action before we know it.

Regardless of the outcome, I have nothing but love for Janet and I hope she announces a clean bill of health soon!
