With her recent acting turn in Tyler Perry's "For Colored Girls" and all the controversy surrounding the trial of the personal physician of her late-brother Michael, Janet Jackson's musical career has not been at the center of our attention. She's refreshing our collective memory with a U.S. tour and a greatest hits album, Number Ones, which boasts a whopping 35 songs from her nearly-three decade career. Jackson brings her tour and all those hits to DAR Constitution Hall on March 22. Tickets are $68-$149 and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
