Janet Jackson To Retire From Touring?

Janet Jackson is contemplating retirement from the road because of exhaustion. Her six-month "All For You" tour winds down Feb. 16 in Hawaii.

"Touring is very grueling," the pop diva told TV show "Extra. "It's very taxing on the body and living out of your suitcase, going from city to city, night after night. It's a tough job. If I could find a way to do this within a month, two months, and hit every place that I need to go, I would definitely do it again. I'm trying to figure out a way to make it work for everyone in that way, but, if not, it may just be my last one.''

Early in the tour a number of shows were cancelled or postponed from health or production problems. Following the September 11 terrorist attacks, she cancelled her European leg, October to December.

Jackson said she'd like to focus on acting and already has two films under her belt: Poetic Justice and Nutty Professor II: The Klumps.
