Janet Jackson's so-called retirement didn't last long -- she now says she's working on new music for the first time in more than five years.
Miss Jackson tells Billboard that fans shouldn't believe stories that she'd ditched her career and moved to the Middle East with new hubby Wissam Al Mana. She says, "I am working on a new project now. We are creating the concept and initial thoughts on the music. I am excited about the direction we are taking. I don't want to rush it… I don't want to put a time constraint on the creative process."
Janet's last album was 2008's Discipline, which debuted at number-one but sold a disappointing 449,000 copies overall.
