Janet Jackson is used to being in "Control," but that all changed when she began dating Wissam Al Mana in July 2010.

"I'm getting older and I feel more settled," the 45-year-old singer tells Harper's Bazaar Arabia's November issue.

Jackson -- who was secretly wed to Rene Elizondo, Jr. for eight years -- also hints she may walk down the aisle again. "We have a deep bond, a deep connection," she says.

Adds Qatar businessman Al Mana, 36: "I'm fortunate enough to be dating my dream woman."

Though Al Mana has brought joy to Jackson's life, the multiplatinum singer -- who's currently touring overseas -- says life hasn't been easy since losing her brother Michael in June 2009.

"It was very difficult for me at the beginning. It was so raw," she says. "But now, I'm able to listen to Michael's music and watch his videos."
