Janet Jackson celebrates 30 years in pop music

Janet Jackson performed a concert in Abu Dhabi to celebrate 30 years of her career as a pop artist.

The singer, who has a total of 33 number one songs, performed some of most-loved tracks, including 'Control' and 'What Have You Done For Me Lately', at the Yas Island development which is valued at $36 billion.

A local barman, Ron Espenocilla, said that he almost lost his job over the show:

"I missed two of her tours in the Philippines because I was either studying or living here and this time I wasn't going to miss it. I told my job one month before that I have to go to do this and they were not happy but I told myself it was worth leaving it if they said no ... lucky they agreed"

The 45-year-old singer has been attending the trials of Dr. Conrad Murray, who is being accused of the involuntary manslaughter of her brother, Michael.
