May 16, 1966 Janet Damita Jo Jackson Gary, Indiana, United StatesActress. Singer.

Janet Jackson is an American recording artist and actress. She is the youngest child of the Jackson family of musicians. She first performed on stage with her family beginning at the age of seven, and later started her career as an actress with the variety television series The Jacksons in 1976. She went on to star in other television shows throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, including Good Times and Diff'rent Strokes.

In 1991, she signed the first of two record-breaking, multi-million dollar recording contracts with Virgin Records, which established her as one of the highest paid artists in the recording industry. Her debut album under the Virgin label, janet. (1993), saw Jackson develop a public image as a sex symbol as she began to explore sexuality in her music. That same year she appeared in her first starring film role in Poetic Justice; since then she has continued to act in feature films. By the end of the decade Jackson was named the second most successful recording artist of the 1990s. All for You (2001), became her fifth consecutive studio album to debut at number one the Billboard 200 album charts. In 2007, she changed labels, signing with the Island Def Jam Music Group and released her tenth studio album Discipline the following year.

Jackson is ranked by Billboard magazine as one of the top ten best-selling music artists in the history of contemporary music, having sold over 100 million albums worldwide. The Recording Industry Association of America lists her as the eleventh best-selling female artist in the United States with 26 million certified albums. Jackson's longevity in the recording industry has rivaled that of several entertainers and her musical style and choreography have influenced a number of contemporary pop and R&B artists.

Born May 16, 1966, her primary personality traits are represented by the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal sign, the Fire Horse. The Fire Horse either succeeds beyond our wildest imagination or goes down in flames; they are the movers and shakers of the world. She tends to be volatile in the extreme and not afraid to take even the most dangerous risks. Depending on how much artistic talent she has, she can be a flamboyant, charismatic performer. She adds excitement to our lives and are great to have around---when she can control your temper and innate restlessness.
