Jackson to be on Letterman

David Letterman, who got an eyeful of Courtney Love's breasts during Wednesday's Late Show, has booked another noted breast-barer, Janet Jackson.

The singer will visit the Late Show on March 29.

Starting that week, Jackson is making a round of media appearances to promote her new album, Damita Jo. She'll appear on ABC's Good Morning America and Fox's On the Air With Ryan Seacrest.

She'll also be on NBC's Saturday Night Live.

Her appearance on Letterman is a coup for the talk-show host, considering it was on CBS where Jackson had her Super Bowl halftime show exposure. She stayed away from the Grammy Awards on CBS, reportedly because the network wanted her to apologize for the Super Bowl performance.

Letterman's show is pre-taped, allowing for editing. When Love leaped on Letterman's desk Wednesday and lifted her shirt to expose her breasts, the shot was edited to obscure the view.

Jackson will be Seacrest's sole guest and will perform for a crowd outside the Hollywood-area complex where the show is taped.

A seven-second delay, standard for the show, will be in place for her April 2 appearance.
