Janet, 18, came fifth in the 2011 series of the X Factor, but has seemingly been keeping a relatively low profile since her departure from the show.
The Co. Tyrone singer explained to Johnny that she has been spending her time writing music and recording her album 'Hide and Seek'.
"I kind of wanted to disappear a bit and be a bit more human for a while so I could write a more personal album based on my actual life, so that's what I did," she said.
"I was offered record deals and things when I left the (X Factor), but what they were wanting to do with me as a person wasn't really what I was feeling, so I decided "I've got a good online fan base, lets kick start this project online" and it worked out."
Instead of receiving help from big record labels, Janet asked her fans to pledge money online to finance her new album and she said this allowed her complete creative control throughout the whole process.
"I made a more human album than what it would have been if I had have released something straight off the back (of the X Factor)," she explained.
While recording her album, Janet enlisted the help of singer-songwriter Newton Faulker, who co-wrote a number of songs on the record, including her debut single 'Wonderful' and Grammy and Ivor Novello award winning producer Eliot Kennedy.
And despite shunning the big industry offers she received due to her time on the X factor, Janet said she will always be grateful for her time on the show.
"It's where I got my name, that's why I wanted to go on the show, so I could meet people in the industry so I could go forth and make an album.
"And I got to do that and I have achieved everything that I wanted to achieve out of it."
