Janet Jackson Health Magazine Cover

Music Icon Janet Jackson is on the cover of Health Magazine’s December 2010 issue. In her interview with the magazine Janet,  Miss Jackson, (If you nasty) reveals her past body-image struggles and current mission to help women feel amazing in their own skin, pressures of Hollywood and what makes her happy now. Check out some highlights from her interview below:

On having her body criticized as a kid: “When I did Good Times, they used to bind my chest because I was developing breasts at a young age… It immediately makes you think, ‘The way I am isn’t good enough.’ They thought I was too heavy and that I needed to lose weight. When I look back at the show, I was your average-size kid.”

On choosing between acting and singing: “I have more of a passion for acting than I do singing, because singing comes so much easier to me. Acting is more of a challenge. I always say to people, ‘I’m really in the wrong business because I don’t like being in front of huge crowds, and I don’t like it when a lot of people are looking at me.’”

On Hollywood’s obsession with weight: “People tend to put entertainers on pedestals. We’re human beings, just like you… whether we have money or not, we still have bills to pay, we still have our stresses.”

On getting colonics at age 11: “Once a month my mother would drive us to downtown L.A [for the procedure]. That played a big part in my life and career, because I learned at a very young age what discipline truly meant, to be able to pass up the French fries and the piece of candy.”
