Sardina, Italy is the place to be for celebrities and Janet Jackson joined the list of stars spotted out on the Mediterranean waters when she hopped on a yacht this afternoon (July 18).

Accompanied by her boyfriend Wissam Al Mana, the 46-year-old performer looked relaxed as she took some time to steer clear of her daily stressors.

Moving on to her personal dilemmas, the “Nasty” singer is reportedly furious that her niece Paris, Michael Jackson’s daughter, landed a role in the upcoming film “Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys."

According to a report from Us Weekly, Jackson "feels it's goes against Michael's wishes to keep his kids out of the limelight until age 18."

Although Paris, who is now 14, landed the role back in December, Janet already expressed her concerns, which creates even more frustration.

The pop sensation told Prevention magazine in May that, “We've spoken about the fact that you're only a child once. I think there's a time for everything, and now is not the time [to act in films]. I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college—or not—but wait till she turns 18. She's a very tough, smart girl. But it's a cutthroat industry. I wouldn't want my child to do it."

What are your thoughts on Paris entering the Hollywood realm at such a young age?
