Janet Jackson showed off the "island retreat" she and her son, Eissa built while in quarantine. The proud mom tweeted a pic of the colorful cardboard creation days after her 54th birthday.
If you can’t go to the island, bring the island to you. This seemed to be what was on Janet Jackson’s mind when she built a playhouse with her son, Eissa during the quarantine.
The singer shared a photo of the colorful house she and her three-year-old created while stranded at home due to COVID-19.
Janet is one of many celebrities who urged the public to do their part to stop the pandemic from spreading.
The tiny cardboard house had a blue roof with white stars painted on it. Its yellow base had cut-outs resembling windows and even had a door with a red handle.
Several letters of the alphabet spelling “E’s Island Life” and some flowers and stars were used as decorations. We’re guessing Eissa had the free hand of laying them out on one side of the house which even had green trimmings resembling grass.
Janet was proud of what she and her son accomplished and explained that it was their “island retreat.” It’s understandable that they would long for the island life considering the travel restrictions set upon by the pandemic.
Janet gushed about the home project just a day before her 54th birthday which came with a lot of surprises. She shared clips of her friends’ Tik Tok video as well as a music video her dancers prepared to toast her new year.
The ageless performer also marked the occasion with a stunning photo of herself along with a caption alerting her fans that it was her birthday.
SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE CITIZEN
Janet is one of many celebrities who urged the public to do their part to stop the pandemic from spreading. Back in April, she sent out a plea for people to stay home saying she had a lot of things to do in June. She was referring to her "Black Diamond" tour which is scheduled that month.
There is no word yet on whether her tour will be pushed back the same way her appearance at the Essence Festival Culture in July was postponed. But the singer did thank essential workers for risking their lives for the community.
