Janet Jackson in hospital

Janet Jackson was hospitalised after complaining of “shortness of breath” on Monday night (10.03.08).

The Feedback singer was taken to Los Angeles’ Cedar-Sinai Medical Center to be treated for flu symptoms. Janet’s representative insists the 41-year-old star’s condition is not serious, saying: “Janet is fine. She is just battling this flu like everyone else.”

The singer has been busy promoting her latest album Discipline, which is currently number one on the US Billboard 200 chart.

She is planning to showcase her new tracks with a tour later this year. Earlier this week, Janet – whose weight has fluctuated in recent years – revealed she is currently co-writing a diet book, which will be released by the end of the year.

She said: “It takes you through those moments in my life up until now and what worked for me. And hopefully within that, if it doesn’t work for them, maybe they’ll find something that does work for them and a nice place for them to be content with who they are.”
