Sure, it’s a great apartment… but what has he done for her lately?
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that pop superstar Janet Jackson has posted an apartment on Central Park West that she’s owned for 25 years, but hasn’t visited since before the pandemic began.
And it looks like she probably won’t miss him much.
“I’ve always treasured my home’s wonderful location and breathtaking views that capture the magic and excitement of New York,” the “Control” singer told the publication. “It’s time for someone else to enjoy it and create new memories.”
Jackson paid $2.8 million in 1998 for the house overlooking the park and Billionaires Row, and is now seeking $8.995 million for it.
Located on the 34th floor of One Central Park West and connected to the Trump International Hotel, the three-bedroom, 2,100-square-foot apartment features access to inn amenities, including room service from Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s restaurant on the property.
The open-plan living space is filled with light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, its agents, Juliette Janssens and Allison Koffman of Sotheby’s International Realty, told the newspaper. It also has a wood-paneled library and a cutout in the wall separating the kitchen so even those cooking can take advantage of the views.
It is not the first time that the apartment is available, more or less. In 2014, Jackson put three and a half bathrooms up for sale, asking $35,000 a month.
The youngest sister of the Jackson clan, Janet first rose to fame as a child star on such television series as “Good Times” and “Diff’rent Strokes.”
He transitioned into music as a teenager and had a huge success with his album “Control” in 1986, when he was 20 years old. She later became one of the most influential artists in pop music, reaching number 1 on Billboard’s Top 10 singles chart. times, while she sells more than 50 million records worldwide.
Her 1993 album Janet featured the hit “You Want This,” which should help explain the headline.
