Promoting her latest film, âFor Colored Girls,â Janet Jackson spoke with ABC News Radioâs David Blaustein about her childhood, body image, and past relationships. Jackson recently wrote a book entitled, âTrue You,â where she discusses her weight loss and weight gain. âEveryone wanted to know about my weight loss, the weight gainâhow I do itâ¦Itâs just talking about my routine, my workout regime, my nutrition. I wanted to talk about it,â said the 44-year-old Grammy-winning singer. Jackson revealed that while she was on the show âGood Times,â on the first day of shooting they bounded her chest because they thought her breasts were too big. âI got the part when I was 10, we started shooting when I was 11âI was developing early. It made me feel that the way I am, itâs not good enough. Thatâs why I decided to call [the book] âTrue You.ââ The pop icon who has been married twice and divorced twice, says that she still felt lonely even when she had someone around her all the time. âEven when you have someone with you 24/7, and still feeling lonelyâwhen I look back on it, itâs really, really sad. And I did a lot of that in my younger years.â As for music and recording a new album, Jackson is considering going back into the studio some time next year. âIâve been thinking about going back into the studio and just taking my time and playing around with it.â Jackson is also a fan of Lady Gaga and feels that sheâs over the top but fun, and takes her back to the days of Grace Jones. âI adore her. One of the things I love about her, it seemed like for a moment, melody had left music. And I feel like she understands that a great deal. I just enjoy watching her.â âFor Colored Girls,â directed by Tyler Perry, will be released in theaters nationwide Friday, November 5.
