Janet Jackson is officially back and ready to hit the road again! The pop icon took to Twitter last night to address fans in a light-hearted video where she announced the State of the World Tour. "I'm continuing my tour as I promised," she explained, as she postponed the Unbreakable World Tour last April as she wanted to start a family with her former husband. 

She continued, "I decided to change the name of the tour: State of the World Tour. It's not about politics. It's about people, the world, relationships, and just love." The trek begins on September 7 in Lafayette, La. before heading all across North American cities like Dallas, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Brooklyn and Boston. Jackson will then wrap up the 56-show tour in Atlanta on December 17.

Jackson also briefly touched on her split from husband Wissam Al Mana, who were married for five years and have a child (who was born in January) together. "Yes, I separated from my husband. We are in court and the rest is in God's hands," she stated. But the best part of the video occurred when big brother Randy teased his sister about putting on baby weight as she gushed about her son Eissa.
