Janet Jackson Goes Back to Work

By: Celebuzz / July 14, 2009

Barely two weeks after her brother Michael Jackson’s tragic death, Janet Jackson is pulling herself together and getting back to what she does best: entertaining.

Radar Online reports that, as of Monday, Janet is back on the Atlanta, Georgia, set of the sequel to Tyler Perry’s 2007 comedy Why Did I Get Married? (Jackson is reprising her role as Patricia.)

According to Malik Yoba, who played Jackson’s love interest Gavin in the original and has also signed on for the sequel, Janet is holding up well, recent family tragedy notwithstanding.

“For those of you who are curious about the state of Ms. Jackson, all seems well,” Yoba posted on his audio blog. “She’s here at work and we’ve got a couple of serious scenes to shoot today.”

Well, they can’t be as serious as what Jackson has been dealing with in real life lately.

Yoba further notes that the cast will shoot for another week, before moving on to the Bahamas.

Let us know in the comments section: Do you think it’s too soon after Michael’s death for Janet to be working again, or will throwing herself into creative projects be therapeutic for Jackson?
