Janet remains a cultural icon and has been keeping busy. The 49-year-old topped the New York Times' bestsellers list in 2011 with the self-help book "True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself." She married Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana in 2012. Last June, she accepted the BET Awards' "Ultimate Icon" trophy (pictured above). In August, Janet kicked off her "Unbreakable World Tour" in support of her 11th studio album, which hit shelves on October 2. She just recently put her world tour on hold in order to plan her family. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP)
