Janet Jackson just played around with ASMR for the first time ever.
What is ASMR? It stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. It is essentially an array of soothing sensations.
These soothing sensations can be physical, like tingles or chills throughout your body. They can also be psychological, like euphoria, comfort, calmness, peacefulness, and relaxation.
ASMR can be stimulated both externally and internally.
An example of an internal ASMR trigger is meditation.
Externally stimulated ASMR can include both in-person and transmitted experiences. These external stimuli can be categorized into tactile, visual, and auditory triggers.
ASMR is said to provide individuals with relaxation, stress relief, and comfort. It is also said to aid with issues like insomnia and anxiety.
Now, Janet Jackson has added her name to the ASMR roster in a video with KIISFM. Get ready for some warm and snugglies and watch here.
People are obsessed.
I KNEW IT! I FREAKIN KNEW IT!! SHE WAS GONNA DO ASMR SOME DAY! That woman has the perfect voice for it ❤️❤️❤️❤️

But some people feel like Janet has been doing ASMR inadvertently this whole time.
Real talk. When I first heard of ASMR I said that Janet has been doing that for years basically. Especially on her slow jams and interludes. She’s like the pioneer low key.
