Janet Jackson showed off her latest dance moves - as well as her slim post-baby body - when she launched her "State of the World" tour on Thursday. Moments before the pop legend took the stage, a video condemning white supremacy, domestic terrorism, and fascism was screened. The clip started by naming unarmed black men who were all killed at the hands of police, including Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and Jonathan Ferrell. But the R&B singer says that she's going to perform her show as scheduled.

What seems to hold her back when it comes to being healthy is candies.

The singer went on to belt out hits including Nasty, Alright, Control, When I Think of You, All for You, and Rhythm Nation.

Jackson quietly married Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana in 2012, and the two welcomed son, Eissa, this past January. I'm backstage in Louisiana, and I'm at rehearsal, about to kick off my tour, and our next show is in Houston. I'm here to tell you that we are doing the show in Houston.

But we're gonna roll in early because we want to visit some of the shelters. "And not just visit some of the shelters, we also want to do something special".

"We appreciate you. We love you", evacuee Marilynn Staten said.
