Janet Jackson has now officially become a billionaire.

The pop star has earned $260 million in album sales since she debuted in the early ’80s, $81 million from music and book publishing fees, $500 million on her sold-out world tours and related tour sponsorships, and over $300 million from movie roles. Now that she’s happily married (to businessman Wissam Al Mana), she’s ready to get back in the studio.

“I am working on a new project now. We are creating the concept and initial thoughts on the music,” she said.

Jackson, who has always been intensely private about her personal life, managed to marry Al Mana in a secret ceremony last year, months before any of the media got wind of it. Her fans now have something to look forward to as she puts together new songs; as one of the best-selling artists of all time, she has quite a rep to live up to.

    No way Janet’s a billionaire. The income listed here is wildly inflated, plus you forgot to deduct taxes, production costs, living expenses, agent fees etc. No performer in music history has ever made Forbes list of the world’s billionaires.

    Celebrity networth says Janet is worth $150 million:
