Janet Jackson to Be Inducted in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Stevie Nicks to become the only woman to enter the Hall of Fame on two occasions.

No, her first name ain’t baby. It’s Janet. Ms. Hall of Fame if you’re nasty!

Tenor

Jackson will be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2019 alongside Stevie Nicks, The Cure, Radiohead, Def Leppard, Roxy Music, and the Zombies.

“Thank you Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” Jackson says in a statement. “I am truly honored and I am happy to be in there with my brothers.”

Artists are eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their first album or single.

Nicks, who was inducted as a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1988, will become the only woman to enter the Hall of Fame on two occasions.
 

“I have a lot to say about this,” the “Stand Back” singer says in a statement, “but I will save those words for later. For now I will just say, I have been in a band since 1968. To be recognized for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile. It’s a glorious feeling.”

The induction ceremony will be held at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on March 29. An edited version of the event will air later on HBO alongside a SiriusXM radio broadcast.

Ticket details will be announced in January.
