Jackson Embarrassed By Beenie Man Collaboration

Subscribe to Janet Jackson alerts

Janet Jackson has apologised to gay fans for performing a duet with reggae star Beenie Man, insisting she never would have recorded with him if she knew he was homophobic.

The dancehall star is among a number of Caribbean hitmakers currently being targeted for anti-gay lyrics in songs, and his inclusion on the new blacklist has embarrassed Jackson, who recorded FEEL IT BOY in 2002 with Beenie Man.

The dancehall star once advocated the killing of gays in his early songs.

Speaking to gay magazine GENRE, Jackson insists she knew nothing about the reggae star's controversial past when they teamed up.

She says, "If I had known that, I would not have worked with him. It's shocking to me. We're on the same label, so I should have known.

"But at the same time, I wish someone from the company would have told me, knowing how... I feel about the gay community."
