Pop icon Janet Jackson appeared on “GMA” to talk about her role as the new spokeswoman for Nutrisystem and to reveal her feelings about the Dr. Conrad Murray verdict. Also, she talks about her niece Paris’ Hollywood dreams.
Janet Jackson, the new NutriSystem spokeswoman, appeared on “GMA” recently where she talked about a range of issues from weight to Dr. Conrad Murray. As she did in her True You bestseller, she revealed that while we saw a sex symbol, she didn’t like what she saw in the mirror.
On her body image –
“I didn’t like it. We always find something wrong with us, somewhere. I could really easily pick myself apart and that’s what I did.”
On finding confidence with her body image later in life –
“I’m able to look in the mirror. I couldn’t do that before. I’m very grateful to be able to do what I love most, what I really feel I was here to do, and that’s to help others.”
On Dr. Conrad Murray’s guilty verdict –
“It doesn’t bring my brother back—that would be the ultimate—but the best was done at that moment.
On Paris Jackson’s budding acting career –
“I’m happy for her because this is what she wants to do. I told her you should really take this time to enjoy your youth to its fullest because you lose so much of your childhood in this industry.”
It’s good to see Ms. Jackson back doing interviews, don’t you agree? Hopefully new music in 2012 as well!
