Janet Jackson To Make Rare Public Appearance to Promote New Book With Trainer Tony Martinez and Chef Andre

(Beverly Hills, CA) – Celebrating the debut of her first book, TRUE YOU: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself, at #1 on New York Times bestseller list, ICON Janet Jackson will undertake her first book signing appearances for fans in New York City and Los Angeles. She is known, among other things, for how rarely she makes public appearances.

In TRUE YOU, Janet candidly reveals her very personal struggle with an issue so many of us face every day: self-esteem. With candor and courage, Janet shares her painful journey to loving herself. Janet addresses the crazy rumors that have swirled around her for most of her life, shines an intimate light on her family, and pulls the reader behind the velvet rope into her unforgettable career. Janet shares lessons she has learned through friends and fans.

TRUE YOU was written with the help of Janet’s personal trainer Tony Martinez and Chef Andre Carthen of Acafe. Tony Martinez has worked directly with Janet for the past nine years assisting Janet in developing the muscle, tone and confidence that have defied human nature. Chef Andre, of ACafe, worked with directly Janet to develop a delicious menu of recipes. TRUE YOU takes Chef Andre’s exquisite recipes and transforms them into something anyone can do if they have a desire to stay healthy and lean while eating the foods they love.

“I am excited to share my story, and the lessons that I have learned on my journey to finding and loving myself. I look forward to meeting as many people as possible in New York and Los Angeles. My tour is up close and personal and I can think of no better way to be close to my fans than to meet them at these book signings,” said Janet.

Coinciding with the book signings, Janet Jackson will be bringing her JANET JACKSON Number Ones, Up Close and Personal Tour to New York and Los Angeles. The New York performances will take place March 18th, 19th and 21st at Radio City Music Hall. Janet will be performing in Los Angeles at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City on April 14th, 15th and 16th. The legendary Icon is performing her 35 number ones hits in 35 global cities.

This tour differs from her previous concert schedules in that she will perform music exclusively from her chart topping CD NUMBER ONES. There will also be a focus on venues that will allow Janet to be up close and personal in a much more intimate setting. In each selected city JANET will offer something different to her performance so no show will be the same.

Much like TRUE YOU this tour is JANET more revealed, more intimate, and more personal than ever before. Don’t look for special effects, just look at Janet.
