Jackson album promotion pulled

Janet Jackson has another album flop on her hands - bosses at her record label have ceased promoting 'Discipline' and there are no more single releases planned.

Jackson, who once broke chart records with seven U.S. top five hits from one album - 'Rhythm Nation 181', has scored only one hit from her new release, 'Feedback'.

And there are no plans to try to top that.

In a disappointing email correspondence to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, Jackson writes: "We started off with Feedback and the label and myself haven't quite seen eye to eye since the Feedback single so they've kind of basically stopped all promotion.

"I'm trying to figure out a way to say this, but just to say it and to be quite honest, they just stopped all promotion whatsoever on the album, so I don't think you're going to hear another single off this album."

At the height of her popularity, Jackson scored 19 hit singles from just three albums - 'Control', 'Rhythm Nation: 1812' and 'janet'. And she still holds the record for scoring number ones in America from the same album, over three successive years.
