The singer posted a lyric video for her song "The Great Forever," which is off her latest album Unbreakable. At the end of the clip, Jackson's statement is unveiled: "Remember… believe it when you hear it from my lips. The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I'm recovering. My doctors have approved my concerts as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled. Thank you for you prayers and love." Read more here.
