She spoke in regards to the matter in her new documentary, Janet Jackson., which she co-produced. It options uncommon commentary from the notoriously non-public “Rhythm Nation” singer and former baby actress.
“Once I was 10 years previous, I did [the sitcom] Good Occasions and that is the start of getting weight points and the best way I checked out myself,” Janet, 55, stated partially three of the four-part documentary, airing Saturday, Jan. 29, at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime. “I used to be creating at a really younger age and I began getting a chest and they might bind my chest so I’d look extra flat-chested.”
She continued, “After which there have been occasions when Mike used to tease me and name me names. He used to name me ‘pig,’ ‘horse,’ ‘slaughter hog,’ ‘cow.’ It wasn’t out of malice on his half in any respect. Brothers teases sisters, sisters tease brothers, and it was simply form of humorous.”
