Jackson Eyeing Independent Music Career

JANET JACKSON is considering shunning record labels to release her own music, after finding herself without industry backing for the first time in her career.
The Nasty singer signed a contract with A&M Records at the tender age of 16 in 1982 before moving to Virgin Records in 1991 as part of a record-breaking deal. She left the company in 2007 to sign another multi-million agreement with Island Records, which came to an abrupt end a year later (08) after the release of just one disc.
Jackson is taking time away from the music scene to concentrate on her movie career, but when she returns, the singer is open to taking complete control of her musical releases - despite interest from the industry's major players.
She tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "All the major labels have called and they want to sit down and talk about me signing. But I need to figure out if that's the route I want to take or if I want to do something more independent.
"The latter might be better, where I'd be able to call the shots when creating my own album. I haven't decided."
