Jenna Dewan-Tatum used to hit strip clubs with Janet Jackson

Actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum reveals singer Janet Jackson used to like to visit strip clubs after her concerts.

The star worked with Jackson as a backup dancer in the early 2000s and credits her for helping her launch her career. While Dewan-Tatum praises the singer professionally, she also grew close to her personally and reveals Jackson, who is known for her sensual performances, has an adventurous side.


"Janet Jackson is like the pinnacle for dancers, like there is no one else you want to dance with... but she loves to go out," she told late night host James Corden on Wednesday (24Feb16).


"We would go to every single city and we would have so much fun and she would be like, 'Let's go out...,' and we would always end up going to strip clubs, which is weird.


"We would go to these strip clubs and what was so funny is that we would walk in and the strippers would fangirl over Janet. They would (pause) and put on (one of her songs and perform)."
