Last year, Janet Jackson was wrapped up in headlines after Justin Timberlake publicly apologized to her and Britney Spears. Now, Jackson is gearing up for the release of her ‘Janet’ documentary series, which will detail her life in full.
Some of the topics included her relationship her brother Michael Jackson, and how they eventually drifted away from each other. In the doc, the 55-year-old spoke on what MJ used to call her. Janet said, “there were times when Mike used to tease me and call me names… ‘Pig, horse, slaughter hog, cow.’ He would laugh about it and I’d laugh too, but then there was somewhere down inside that it would hurt.”
She went more into detail about how the names made her feel, saying “I’m an emotional eater. So when I get stressed or something is really bothering me, it comforts me. I did Good Times and that’s the beginning of having weight issues and the way I looked at myself.” From there, Janet spoke on the way she and her brother drifted apart over the years. The ‘Janet’ series is set to premiere on January 31, 2022.
