Janet Jackson rocked a black figure-hugging, halter gown with a jeweled collar at the annual charity gala Bal de la Rose in Monaco at the Salle des Etoiles on Friday.

While attending the prestigious event, the 56-year-old superstar oozed elegance as she posed for photos with French designer Christian Louboutin on the red carpet. 

As she sauntered into the pinnacle of the Monegasque social calendar in a pair of black stiletto heels, the Miss You Much hitmaker sported a classic bob hairstyle and wispy bangs.

Louboutin, who sported a pink patterned suit, bow tie and bellboy cap, was seen escorting her into the venue as he extended his hand to her once inside. 

Her latest sighting comes just weeks after she said her ‘number one job’ at the moment is ‘being a mama’ to five-year-old son Eissa, who she shares with ex Wissam Al Mana.

During an interview with Essence, Jackson said she is trying to devote her time to her child while he’s still young, before she heads back into the recording studio.

‘Even though it’s something that I absolutely love, it still is my work, my job,’ Janet explained. ‘There will be music at some point. Exactly when? I can’t say just yet, but there will be. I love it too much not to do it. This is all I know.’

She added that, ‘There’s so much that I want to do — but my number one job is being a mama.’

The All For You singer has been based in London in recent years, as she’s raising her little boy there. 

Even after looking back at all she had accomplished throughout her career, the performer said she wasn’t one to put much stock in professional accomplishments.

‘I’ve never been that person to have my awards on display. There’s nothing wrong with it, that’s just not me. Being able to wake up and see my baby another day. The space I might be in at that moment within my soul. What I’ve accomplished within myself. How far I’ve come from that child there to the woman that I am today. That’s success,’ she explained. 

‘If you came to my home, you would never know — if you did not know who I was — that I am an entertainer. I don’t have one award on my wall.’

Janet wasn’t just exaggerating, as she said she keeps all her awards in a ‘warehouse’ out of public view.

‘I’m just saving them for my baby, whatever he wants to do with them. I remember when Jermaine [Dupri] and I were together, he said to me, “Where are your Grammys? Why don’t you have your Grammys?” So I had them brought over, because he wanted them out, so that’s what I did,’ she recalled. ‘Just the Grammys, nothing else. After we went our separate ways, they went back in the warehouse and haven’t come out since.’
