London: Janet Jackson has assured her fans that she loves music and can’t give it up.
The singer also revealed that she is planning to hit the studio next year to record a new album.
The pop star has put her singing career "on the back burner" recently to concentrate on her acting work, with roles in Tyler Perry’s movie sequel ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?’ and his upcoming drama ‘For Colored Girls’.
But Jackson is adamant she’s not given up pop for good, and will return to making music in 2011.
"Just because I’ve made two films back to back... it’s always been a dream of mine to do something like this, so I kind of put music on the back burner to do this. And I will continue to do more films. But definitely, I can’t give up music, it’s in my blood. And I love, love, love performing. So I will make more music,” a news daily quoted her as telling Larry King.
"I think I have thought to go into the studio (sic) and just take my time, fool around, next year," she added.
