Janet Jackson Is This Year’s African American Role Model

NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Janet Jackson has been named this year’s African-American role model by 100 Black Men, an organization dedicated to improving the living situation for African-Americans and other minority groups.

Despite Jackson’s “accident” at the Super Bowl last year in which her breast popped out of her costume, the 38-year-old pop star will join the likes of Colin Powell and Oprah Winfrey as winner of this prestigious award.

"An individual's worth can't be judged by a single moment in that person's life,” 100 Black Men President Paul Williams told the New York Daily News before adding, “I hope we don't have any surprises!" –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
