Janet Jackson has become the latest star to model for fur company BlackGlama.

The 'Rhythm Nation' singer will be the face for the range's 'What Becomes a Legend Most?' campaign. The pop star is following in the footsteps of Diana Ross, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor who have previously been the face of the company.

The adverts will hit the print press and a Billboard in Times Square in New York in September.

Joe Morelli CEO of BlackGlama said: "Janet is an icon in the world of music and entertainment, a true legend. She represents everything that this storied campaign embodies. Janet is to entertainment what BlackGlama is to luxury."

The superstar and sister to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, recently told Essence magazine that she feels more confident aged 44 than she ever has done before.

She said: "There comes a time when you don't give an 'F' what people say or think. You just do your thing because it's finally about you and not in a selfish way but in a great way."
