Styles P recently reminded everyone about the importance of putting family first. Losing a daughter made him realize that a person's interactions with friends and loved ones is what matters the most in life, not material success.

He'd probably love to hear that Janet Jackson is demonstrationg that point. 

After hearing that her dad, Joe Jackson, was admitted to a Brazilian hospital after suffering a stroke, Janet Jackson dropped everything to be by his side, including completely shutting down production rehearsals for her upcoming world tour, ET reports.


According to reports, Janet Jackson plans to stay by her dad's side until "he is stable." 

Joe Jackson posted a message online thanking his fans for their support and well wishes during his hospilization:

To my family, friends, acquaintances and fans all over the world. I want to thank you all for your prayers, unwavering support and kind well wishes during these trying times. Through God's intervention the wonderful doctors, nurses and caretakers at the Albert Einstein Sao Paulo hospital have taken great care of me. God willing, I should be able to make a quick recovery and travel back home soon.

Wishing a speedy recovery to Joe Jackson.
