Janet Jackson appears on the cover of the November 1/8, 2010 issue of Jet Magazine.
During her appearance this morning on "Good Morning America", Janet explained that the interview featured inside this issue of the magazine, during which she comments pessimistically on the possibility of getting married again, was actually taken from an old interview.
Right now it is unclear which performances will appear on the set. It is anticipated that the package, which runs 120 minutes and is retailing for $12.98, will not include each artists' performance in their entirety.
In August, TV One aired a two-hour television special of highlights from the festival featuring two performances by Janet, "Rhythm Nation" and "Nothing." It is possible that this DVD could be the same televised TV One special that aired, however that is unclear right now.
The full title of the package is "Essence Music Festival, Vol. 3."

YAKIMA, Wash. -- St. Joseph Marquette Catholic School in Yakima got a real gem of a treat to help boost sales for their 6th annual Salmon Dinner, Dance and Auction event.
A parent at the school, who had been working on a marketing project with singer Janet Jackson, was able to get a pair of 5 carat diamond earrings donated from the pop icon to be used in the school's auction.
The earrings are being held at Dunbar Jewelers in Yakima, have been appraised at about $50,000 dollars.
"Opened up this jewelry box and here are these monster earrings looking at us. And it's like ... We're just in shock. It was just so exciting to see something that amazing," said Gregg Pleger, Principal of St. Joseph Marquette, when they received the jewelry box sent by Janet Jackson from a hotel in New York.
You can bid for Janet Jackson's earrings at Saturday's annual Salmon Dinner and Auction. The event is being held in Queen Gymnasium, located at 5502 W. Chestnut Avenue, and runs from 5:30 p.m. until 11 p.m.
$50 tickets for the event can be purchased at the door. Proceeds from the dinner and auction will go towards the school, and also help to keep tuition costs down for students and families.
Organizers hope to raise about $80,000 from Saturday's event.

The Oprah Winfrey Show has posted a message on its official website looking for people who have been inspired by Tyler Perry and are willing to talk about it on the show.
The talk show's web post does not mention anything about his new film with Janet, For Colored Girls, which hits theaters on November 5, however Perry being the subject of a show leads to the possibility that Oprah may be planning to do an episode about the movie. Nothing has been announced yet.
