Janet Jackson Didn’t Perform at the Rock Hall Because of Leaving Neverland

Janet Jackson made no direct mention of Michael Jackson in her Rock and Roll of Hall of Fame induction speech, save for collective praise of all her brothers. She also sadly did not perform after her remarks (breaking induction tradition, as did the two members of Radiohead who showed up). She opted out of performing because she did not wish to appear further on HBO, the network which recently aired a damning documentary alleging her brother, Michael, abused two underage boys. The Rock Hall induction ceremony is typically taped and broadcast at a later date on HBO; this year’s induction airs on April 27. Last month, HBO aired Leaving Neverland, which the Jackson family strongly denounced in a joint statement after it premiered first at Sundance. In the statement, they called the accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, liars and maintained Michael’s innocence. Janet Jackson has not released her own individual statement or commented on the allegations. She also did not stop to talk to the press backstage following her induction.

Janet thanks her son; Eissa for showing her 'the meaning of real, unconditional love' during Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Janet Jackson is now a member of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. The youngest of the famed Jackson family was inducted into the hallowed hall during Friday night's ceremony at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York by Janelle Monae. And given the gift of being a mother later in life, Jackson gave a heartfelt thanks to her two-year old son, Eissa, during her nostalgic and grateful acceptance speech.  She added: 'He wakes me up every single morning singing his own melodies. I want you to know that you are my heart, you are my life, and you have shown me the meaning of real, unconditional love. Mama loves you, Eissa.' The singer began her speech by revealing that she wanted to become a lawyer when she was a kid, and that it was her late father's dream for her to become 'this wonderful performer.'
