Janet Jackson is one of the Best-selling Artists in the industry. She has sold more than one hundred million records causing Billboard Magazine to list her as one of the Top 100 All Time Top Artists. Janet’s brothers made up the well-known singing group called the Jackson 5. In 1971, the family moved from Indiana to a gated mansion called Hayvenhurst in Encino, California. Although Janet Jackson had no desire to become a singer and entertainer, she was pushed into the industry by her father as this was expected to be her calling in life.
Jackson has numerous hit albums including Discipline, 20 Y.O., Control, Danita, Jo, Janet, Janet and All for You. She also did a fair amount of television shows and was on Good Times, Fame, The Jacksons, Diff’rent Strokes, A New Kind of Family and Love Boat. Her film career includes Poetic Justice, The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, Why Did I Get Married, Why Did I Get Married Too and For Colored Girls. It is estimated that Janet, the baby sister of the world-renown singer Michael Jackson , has a net worth of 150 Million Dollars!
So, how much is 150 Million Dollars really?
150 Million Dollars is a lot of money, so let’s go shopping! Let’s start off with some basic commodities for the kitchen. How about 125,000,000 kilos of rice? Difficult to carry home, since it will weigh more than 125,000 tonnes. But that’s what servants are for anyway. Or how about eggs? 900 million eggs to be precise. If laid one after the other they would stretch for 6,858,000 kilometres. That’s about 4,261,360 miles if you haven’t gone metric yet. Let me explain how many eggs we are talking about here. The distance to the moon is 384,403 kilometres. You could split them into 18 stacks and still reach the moon. On the other hand a stack of 900 million eggs would only reach 1/10th of the distance to Mars. So NASA will have to come up with a better plan for a manned mission there.
