Janet Damita Jo Jackson, 41, has been a musical icon since she first stepped on the stage at MGM Casino nearly 35 years ago at age seven. She began working in earnest when she joined The Jackson's variety show at age ten.
Jackson has reinvented herself time and time again over the decades. Her latest transformation was a 60 pound weight loss in just four months. That's quite an undertaking. She insists she did not undergo any surgical procedures, as has been rumored. She seems to have taken years off her face as well.
Regardless of her method, Jackson looks phenomenal. We've got photos from her early days and photos showing before and after her significant weight gain and loss.
