Janet Jackson on Michael’s death: “I’ve learned that life is precious.”
HollywoodNews.com: “There isn’t a day that goes by even now that I don’t think about Michael, where we don’t all think about him,” Janet Jackson admits in a new interview with The Daily Mail, over a year after her brother’s death. “Right now, I’m in a better space and I’m moving on with my life. At times it can be hard. But I’m growing and learning and loving. I’m enjoying my life very much and I’ve learnt that life is precious.”
Jackson reveals that she is still close with her nieces and nephews, saying, “I’m the aunt that they come to when they think they’re going to get in trouble. You know, ‘I just got a tattoo, or a piercing. And my dad saw it last night and he wants to choke me! Can you talk to him, Aunty Janet?'”
And in response to pervasive accusations of dysfunction in the Jackson family, she asks, “Isn’t dysfunction the case in most families, to a certain extent? Every family has their issues, and my family is a lot closer than many people think.”
Jackson stars in the upcoming Tyler Perry film “Why Did I Get Married Too?”, to be released September 3.
