Janet Jackson Goes Back to Work

Janet Jackson Goes Back to Work-photo

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?

    I think janet is strong and she will get through her brothers death.And also, it's a great idea to raise the kids.everyone saw how the daughter looked to you for comfort after she talked about her father was the best dad ever at the memorial service. so be strong Janet and be there for the kids.

    Wherever, Janet go, her brother is with her in her heart. I am sure her brother Mj would want her to go on with her life and be strong for his 3 children.

    No it's not to soon, Janet keep it moving, that way you don't sit around and hear the media talk nagative about your brother. A lot of people are fake, because they didn't preciate Michael when he was alive. I did, so I'm comfortable with his death, and he can rest in peace now. Stay Strong jackson family

    I mean it will never be long enough to get over her brothers' death. She's been in this industry all her life with also a very stern father, so getting back to work is probably something shes' been taught to do. That no matter what, work is work. So you could just imagine, that throughout her whole life, what else has she been going through while working. No its not too soon.
