Now that she’s given birth to a beautiful baby boyJanet Jackson has every intention of being a working mom — she announced in a Twitter video posted yesterday (May 1) that she’ll resume the tour she put on hiatus a year ago.

In “a special message,” Janet sadly confirmed that she is in the thick of divorce proceedings with Wissam Al Mana, but said her separation’s silver lining is that she’ll resume the Unbreakable Tour on September 7. Jackson originally put the tour on hold in April 2016 in an effort to start a family.

“I just wanna keep it real with you guys for a second: yes, I separated from my husband, we are in court and the rest is in god’s hands,” she said. “Now for that something else: I’m continuing my tour as promised. I’m so excited, you guys. So excited.”

Jackson said the series of shows will now be called the State of the World tour, though performances will not be as politically charged as the name might suggest.

“It’s not about politics, it’s about people, the world, relationships and just love,” she said. “I wanna thank you guys for your patience, for all of your support throughout the years, thank you so much.”

And no, she can’t get enough of her beautiful son.

“I thank god for him, you guys,” she said. “He’s so healthy, so beautiful, so sweet, so loving, such a happy baby.”
