Janet didn't say that. It was in the narration parts of the interview. I didn't like it anyway. They mention how his death was a ruled a homicide and I wonder will people even remember that at all.

wtf does MJ have to do with her book? I am confused what the purpose was

They talked a lot about Joe. She talked about working on Good Times and all that and starving herself. She was even asked if she had an eating disorder. I don't know how much Michael is in the book. She dedicates it to him and she said how close they were etc. She even talks about when she lost her virgintiy at 16.[/B]

Was the bolded in reference to what is in the book, or was this just information about janet.

She dedicates it to him. She talks about how close they were. He's her brother. We all know they are going to ask questions about him and how she felt about his death.

they were close 40 years ago.. she claims at the end she had no idea who MJ was anymore and that she lost him after Thriller. How were they close? and for being close she sure as hell threw him under the bus after his death. If they were close she would've gotten her brother some help for his sleep disorder that she had no idea he had.

How sad. Even after he's died, MJ still has to be used to sell her projects.

It just seems insulting to her.

She was talking about her childhood and how they did everything together. How she had his back when things he was going through. They showed Scream and how they won the MTV awards. It seemed she focused more when they were younger during those times. Then she was asked the last time she saw him and what they said.

You know what she mentioned? She was on youtube and remember Michael's private home movies where he talks about Janet and how she and he were the most alike? She never saw that before him talking about her. She said how they will always be connected.

I hope someone will post the interview. It was 1 hour interview. I am afraid I am leaving things out.

So to summarize, any interview that a Jackson does to sell a product will deal significantly on MICHAEL JACKSON. No one will say, this interview is not about him, so I will not answer questions about him. They know that if they say that, it would be difficult for them to get interviews and sell products. Unfortunately, we will see a lot of this now, and the only way we can stop it is to refrain from buying products that uses Michael Jackson as the bait to catch the fish--consumer. Unless, of course, it is a ligit product promoted by the Estate and people we hold in high-esteem, then we will buy.

did they talk about what Janet THOUGHT Michael's addiction was? Or was that left unaddressed again?....just insinuated?

It wasn't insinuated. It was presented as FACT.

Yeah, but did they need 30 minutes of a one-hour show to rehash non-Janet related aspect of MJ's life?


H-O-T M-E-S-S

I wrote this about Latoya's upcoming exploitative book, but I agree it should be applied to Janet. Obviously, her alone, is no longer sufficient to sell anything.

And may I remind you AGAIN, not long ago, Janet refused to answer MJ questions in her interviews. So, why not keep doing it.


I think we all know the answer to that question....When MJ was surrounded by controversy, it was easy to distance oneself from him by refusing to discuss him...now that he is back in the media glare and is selling like hot cakes...it's ok to exploit the relationship. Even know, according to her, she lost MJ was a brother during the Thriller years.


You know what she mentioned? She was on youtube and remember Michael's private home movies where he talks about Janet and how she and he were the most alike? She never saw that before him talking about her. She said how they will always be connected.

Yeah, I thought it was weird that she had never seen the private videos...when they aired on national TV ages ago
Shows how disconnected she was from his life.

Everytime a Jackson is interviewed Michael's name gets brought up. I don't think that will ever change especially with the trial and his kids.

It won't ever change. I don't know why people in this thread are so shocked about Janet talking about him. Wait til Paris starts acting and has to do interviews. She will too be asked about her dad just like Lisa Marie Presley. Michael was a larger then life entertainer. It's bound to happen.

I don't know. They are talking about her feelings about her looks and life and they take the opportunity to ask about his death and how she finally started to grieve. They are going to go there.

Ya. I wonder if after the interview she made a B-line for the bathroom and shove a finger down her throat. :puke:

Is that how you explain the 1993 extortion? The Lisa Marie Presley marriage? The Neverland rebuttal?


Hmmmmmmmok.

I think it was during the part how she was talking about how she had his back and what things he was going through. I guess they were showing examples of that. I don't feel they needed to show that specifically.

So Janet is talking about these subjects or they are mentioned in voiceover?

Voiceover. She mentioned being there for him and then they showed what Michael dealt with in the narration. Headlines and his Neverland video.

no that is not going to change buy Paris at age 12 represented her father way better than any of other jackson who claim to be in this business for 40 yrs what a shame ,they need to take class from his teenage daughter and son i guess.
thank god i didn't waste 1hr of my life.i think we are also responsible in this hotmess because we flock to tv whenever name Michael is mentioned and when we know how jackson family is ,still we go for it.

To show Janet had his back like she said, they showed clips and narrated about the the 93 scandal because Janet mentioned the allegations as one of the reasons why they did the song scream and MJs answer to what he went through!

But, the public knows all to well about the 93 sh*t, so it was annoying to see that yet, again!
