Janet Jackson is hoping to lose weight before her comeback tour because she recently gained 21 pounds in just eight weeks!
Weighing in at 120 pounds before, the singer now weighs 141 pounds.
“Janet lost control of her diet at the end of last year, then she went hog-wild on junk food over the holidays,” a source told the National Enquirer.
“After gorging on high-fat indulgences like mashed potatoes and gravy, ham, macaroni and cheese and red velvet cake, she’s paying the price.
“Janet was able to get back into an exercise routine. She’s working out seven days a week, swimming, doing aerobics, kickboxing, running and lifting weights.
“And she’s hoping that the nightly workout of performing onstage will help with her weight loss, too.
“Janet has incredible self-discipline — when she puts her mind to it.
“Her new tour is a ‘greatest hits’ show – and Janet is determined to make it her best tour ever.”
