Janet Jackson, 51-year-old empress of the Rhythm Nation gave birth to her first child Eissa just about 8 months ago. Now that Ms. Jackson is out and about for the launch of her new concert tour, folks are finally getting a look at what kind of shape she is in. Fans from all over the world, as it turns out, are amazed at what they’ve seen. No less than Kim Kardashian — not unfamiliar with the travails of a post-baby body in the public eye — gave Jackson a public shout-out today.
Posting a pic from the Lafayette, Louisiana, leg of Jackson’s State of the World tour, Kardashian simply stated, “Wait can we take a minute to appreciate @JanetJackson and how amazing she looks after JUST having a baby!!!!”

Eight months seems like a decent amount of time to get a body back in shape — especially for a person of Jackson’s means — with the added motivation of going on a world tour. Regardless, the bounce-back and shape-up Jackson revealed are remarkable.
In between fans suspecting plastic surgery in the mix — in particular on Kardashian’s Twitter feed — plenty of people decided to look at Jackson’s post-baby body reveal as inspiration and testament to Jackson’s strength and presence as a pop icon.
She looks 'amazing' because of post baby plastic surgery- pathetic that our young women idolize false gods like the Kardashians & Jackson's

Interest in the affairs of Jackson didn’t rest simply on her physical appearance, however. She is, after all, on tour and her musical performance is impressing folks just as much as her bounce-back.

Jackson is also being lauded for taking time from the tour to drop in on evacuees from Hurricane Harvey, along with a slew of other stars, including Houston native Beyonce, Demi Lovato, and others.
