Janet Jackson's move from music to big screen acting came courtesy of John Singleton and, more recently, some key roles in Tyler Perry movies. Next comes her collection of autobiographical anecdotes, True You, due in the Autumn. Next? Well, she'd like to have a crack at screenwriting some genre movies.
The quote comes from an AP interview which you can read at, for example, Billboard magazine. She says:
I'm really drawn to the action stuff and I love sci-fi. That really drives me crazy.
Kerraaaaazy. She's actually appeared in one of my favourite sci-fi shorts, if you'll allow me to call it that – Mark Romanek's promo for Michael and Janet Jackson's Scream. The best quality copy on YouTube can't be embedded, I'm afraid.
