This is the very candid interview first interview Janet gave since the death of her megastar brother Michael. She discusses Michael's death, her father Joesph, her first marriage to James DeBarge, her issues with weight, and her relationship with Jermaine Dupri. It's a very poignant interview that shows a side of Janet that most people never get to see since she's so secretive.

***Editor's Note***

Janet says in the interview that she always hated her smile and her body. After hearing that I almost fell out of my chair. I have a poster of Janet over my treadmill that is my motivation. Every time I don't feel like working out I just think of Janet with that body I wished I had and man I get to work. Man it's mind boggling how you can envy someone for something and he/she hates that feature. I mean, come on, everyone has to admit one of the best features of the Jackson family is their smiles and Janet has the best smile in the crew.


  1. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and if you're looking at yourself and your self-esteem is low, I don't care what you look like, you're not going to like what you see. My sister is gorgeous and she struggles with this as well.

    Thanks for sharing. I never get to see these things on the old boob tube.

  2. I agree with Rhonda. One of my best friends just revealed to me that she has always had low self esteem about her looks and her weight. I always looked at her as a beautiful woman, but if the person can't see this for themselves, no matter how many times you tell them, it's irrelevant to them. Thanks for posting this. I still think Janet is very beautiful and I agree, she has the most beautiful smile.
