When she was 17, Janet Jackson famously did what people told her, but after a career spanning nearly five decades the iconic singer, songwriter, actress and dancer is firmly in control of every aspect of her career these days. 

With that power comes confidence and the 55-year-old seemed more so than ever Tuesday in the first minute-long teaser trailer for “Janet,” the upcoming documentary celebrating the 40th anniversary of her self-titled debut album.

“Hey u guys. Excited to share the first teaser of my new documentary with u. 😘 #JanetDoc,“ Jackson wrote on the Instagram post sharing the clip, which begins with the artist being praised by fellow female music icons Missy Elliott, Paula Abdul and Mariah Carey. 

It's the ending narration by Jackson herself, however, that sets the tone for the documentary:

“This is my story, told by me. Not through someone else’s eyes,” she says, “This is the truth. Take it or leave it. Love it or hate it, this is me.”

Five years in the making — the documentary "joins Janet as her family is going through another extremely difficult time, mourning the loss of her father Joseph, the pivotal figure in the Jackson dynasty," according to a press release from the Lifetime and A&E networks which is currently set to air in a two-day, four-hour event will early in 2022.
