While performing in the Taiwanese capital of Taipei on Tuesday, the pastel-tressed Perry briefly wore the national flag of the Republic of China—Taiwan’s flag—around her neck like a cape. She also had on a gown decorated with sunflowers. It might seem like nothing new for Perry, but the issues stem from the fact that, in Taiwan, both of those images are generally considered to be in support, politically, of the island state’s independence from China.

She might not have known it for a few years, but when she entered this world in 1966, she was joining a legendary musical dynasty in progress. The Jackson 5—featuring brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and then 6-year-old Michael Jackson, had already formed as The Jackson Brothers in 1964, and buoyed by their success, at 10 years of age Janet was entertaining America with her siblings on their TV variety show The Jacksons.
