A rumor first popped up on Facebook a few days ago that Janet Jackson, who recently had to cancel her tour due to health concerns, was battling throat cancer. However, the singer is now saying not to believe anything that doesn't come straight from her in a lengthy Twitter posting. It started with a post from her team that said: "It was Janet’s wish not to make any further comments about her health, however, because of the great concern from around the world, Janet will be releasing a personal message shortly. -Janet’s Team"

"From my lips..." the superstar tweeted, alongside a video that included her song "The Great Forever” (from her new album Unbreakable) and a note about the false rumors.
"Remember…believe it when you hear it from my lips," Jackson, 49, wrote in her message. "The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I'm recovering. My doctors have approved my concerts as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled. Thank you for your prayers and love."
All kinds of speculation popped up last month when Janet announced that she would have to postpone a few stops from her Unbreakable World Tour for surgery. "Hey you guys…Happy Holidays to each and every one of you!" the Grammy-winning singer shared on December 24. "I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring."

While Jackson hasn't said exactly what her surgery was for, many people believe that there were "growths" on her vocal cords, some of which could have been cancerous. However, she now denies that. It is possible that she had a similar problem to Adele, who had vocal cord surgery a few years ago, from which she obviously recovered.
