I heart me some Janet Jackson…while listening to her interview HLN promo clip….Jackson said to forget about your troubles and worries. Especially with the economy? Does this mean she understand if no one purchases her new book, album or come to her show?
I grew up on the Jackson family legacy as most folks in this country. I have always felt that Joe Jackson was slighted for his parenting skills…YUP! I said it! Dude had to feed his family and take care of all of those kids…yeah, he may not have done a lot of things according do what we consider today as being nontraditional parenting of raising nine kids….that was how it was in most African American families home/go figure. The entire Jackson clan are still in the news and the death of Micheal Jackson….now that speaks volumes in my book. Janet Jackson is promoting a new book called “True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself. Focuses on Jackson’s story of her struggle with body image from her pre-teen years until today. With constant reinforcement from those around her and the media that her body was not right, her self esteem dwindled leading to ups and downs in her weight well into adulthood. Based on her story along with most successful African Americans in this country, there are stories that are mind boggling…why isn’t she and others talking about the real struggles that their families endure for them to become successful? Janet Jackson would bang her head against a wall because she felt “so unattractive,” the pop star told CNN’s Piers Morgan. Back then a lot of kids called their parent by thier first names…I called my biological mom “POO”! Joe Jackson was present in his family life despite how mess up it may have appeared to the Jackson clan…..that is more than some folks can say today about their father being present in their life. Give Mr. Jackson that much…at least he was present…dang! That should count for something…shouldn’t it? Joe Jackson did the best he could with the available resources back in the day with what he had and no one can take that away from him…no one! For goodness sake!
