AceShowbiz - Janet Jackson's son showed signs of following in her musical footsteps at just two years old, when he asked her to buy him a violin.
The 53-year-old singer is mother to son Eissa with ex Wissam Al Mana, and opened up about her three-year-old boy's talents as she appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Monday night, February 10, 2020.
Asked if Eissa is musical, Janet replied "he's incredibly musical," before revealing his first "go-to instrument" was a violin.
"First it was the violin, all this he chose, this was at two (years old)," she smiled. "First he chose the violin, and he loves classical music," she said. "First day of school he took the violin to school. Third day of school he said, 'Mama I want to take a cello to school,' and I said, 'Baby you don't have a cello.' "
Eissa then asked Janet to "turn my violin into a cello," so she turned to her assistant, who then "took a straw and taped it to the bottom of the violin. He loved it."
Another of Janet's assistants then asked Eissa if he wants a cello, who's going to buy it for him, to which he answered, "Mama."
"So, he has a cello," Janet admitted bashfully.
Janet appeared on the U.S. TV chat show to discuss her newly-announced "Black Diamond" Tour, which will see her travel the world to promote her new album of the same name - her first record since 2015's "Unbreakable". The superstar will play a total of 34 dates in North America, before hitting Europe, with the trek kicking off in Miami, Florida, in June 2020.
