R&B diva Jackson arrives in Taipei for concert


TAIPEI–R&B diva Janet Jackson arrived in Taipei at around 4 p.m. yesterday in preparation for her first-ever concert in Taiwan later the same day.

Jackson looked to be in high spirits when she arrived at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. She waved to scores of screaming fans and took pictures of the scenes inside and outside the airport’s arrival lounge and of reporters covering her arrival.

Jackson soon left the airport escorted by a security detail for a hotel in downtown Taipei where she will be staying during her visit.

She asked to stay at the hotel’s presidential suite where her late brother Michael Jackson stayed during his two visits to Taiwan.
