While Janet Jackson has not responded to Justin Timberlake’s recent public apology to her, she did take the time this weekend to connect with her fans via a new video posted on social media.

Jackson tweeted a 45-second clip on Saturday (Feb. 13) in which she thanked her longtime supporters for being a part of her life. Speaking directly to the camera, she wore a mask — but she seemed to have a smile on her face.

“I was at home just the other day by myself and I began to cry,” said Jackson. “I was crying because I was so thankful for all that God has blessed me with, all that he has given me. I’m so thankful for Him being in my life. And I am so thankful for all of you being in my life.”

“You’re so special to me,” she said.

She added, “And I want to thank all of you for making ‘Control’ number one once again after 35 years. I never, never in a million years, I would never think that this would happen. I really appreciate you and I love you so, so much. Thank you.”

Jackson’s influential Control album, released on Feb. 4, 1986, just celebrated its 35th anniversary.

Her latest message to fans comes a day after Timberlake — her former co-star at the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, where her breast was exposed by Timberlake on live television in what was deemed a wardrobe malfunction, one for which Jackson faced the fallout — issued an apology to her (as well as to Britney Spears), years later. He expressed regret over his past “ignorance” and for benefiting “from a system that condones misogyny and racism.”
