The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame honoree is planning the release of new music. Her collaboration with Daddy Yankee, "Made For Now" dropped in August 2018 and a new album is expected this year. Jackson, who already has 11 LPs under her belt, is a force of nature with a kind soul. Despite her immense success and enigmatic persona, the star has started to reveal her own set of personal challenges which will likely be shared through her Metamorphosis show.
“Tonight I feel moved to speak for women whose voices have been stifled,” she said during her Global Icon award acceptance speech at the MTV European Music Awards. “I am one of those women. Women who have been gagged, both literally and emotionally. Women who have been abused. Women who have been intimidated. Women who have lived in fear. I stand with you. You are my sisters.” The singer continued, “Tonight, I carry the hope that a new world is emerging. A world in which caring people, male as well as female, will no longer tolerate gender inequality. Women, our voices will be heard.”
