Janet Jackson: Number Ones
Did you happen to catch Janet Jackson's interview with ABC's Robin Roberts last night? I thought she looked great...and she seemed to be "okay", despite the forced (but beautiful) smile she had on her face. She even apologized at one point saying, “I have this thing where I tend to smile when things get uncomfortable.” The show focused a lot on her brother "Mike" and their relationship, as well as the "old school" discipline imposed on her and siblings by her father Joe. So, of course, she was a little unsettled.
Ms. Jackson also talked about her struggle with weight, her relationships with James DeBarge, Rene Elizondo Jr., and Jermaine Dupri (from whom she recently split, but is still friends with), and of the solace she now finds in her work - since Michael's death this past summer - saying, "It helped me get through it. I was able to put a lot of my focus elsewhere."
On a happier note, Jackson talked about her new album "NUMBER ONES", which features one new single titled "Make Me"...a song that Jackson says is "classic me. Dance, upbeat and lots of harmony." I, for one, am LOVING it!
A preview clip of "Make Me" released a couple days ago (watch above). The full-length video is said to premiere during ABC's 20/20, airing at 10pm, Friday, November 20.
