Boston Celtics’ guard Jayson Tatum has apologized to singer Janet Jackson after his team clinched their first-round NBA playoff series. Tatum’s apology followed the Celtics’ win over the Atlanta Hawks, which led to the rescheduling of Jackson’s “Together Again” tour. The singer’s show had to be postponed by a day after the Hawks won to force Game 6.
A fan of Jackson, Tatum expressed regret for any inconvenience he caused the legendary singer. His apology came after the Celtics closed out their first-round NBA playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks. Boston won the series 4-2 to advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals, where they are scheduled to play against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Despite the scheduling conflict, it’s good to see Tatum is still able to recognize the greatness of Jackson, who has sold over 140 million records worldwide. The singer’s “Together Again” tour, though postponed by a day, is being highly anticipated by fans. Jackson has been known to put on great shows, with her concerts often selling out quickly, and her performances during the Super Bowl halftime show in 2004 and the BET Awards in 2015 among the most memorable.
