She is the fifth child of the Jackson family and Michael Jackson sister. She had a career as a singer throughout the 1980s and 1990s, and returned to music in 2004 with her Billboard charting songs "Just Wanna Dance" and "Free the World".

In March 1989, Jackson posed topless for Playboy magazine. The cover and layout was one of the most successful issues in Playboy's history, turning Jackson into an overnight sex symbol.
