Janet Jackson’s popularity has extended around the world for the better part of three decades and MTV will honor her for that impact at the MTV EMAs with the incredibly prestigious Global Icon Award, which is only given to artists who truly reach listeners in every corner of the globe.
With over 160 million records sold, Janet’s impact is undeniable. Past winners include Whitney Houston, U2, Queen and Paul McCartney.
She will perform a medley of hits as part of the acceptance, which will include her new single "Made for Now."
The MTV EMAs go down November 4th.
