In the latest issue of Prevention magazine, cover girl Janet Jackson talks about soul mates and how she plans on being a good example to her niece, Michael Jackson’s teenage daughter Paris Jackson.
On being an example to her niece Paris, Michael’s 14-year-old daughter who landed her first film role in Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys:
JJ: We’ve spoken about the fact that you’re only a child once. I think there’s a time for everything, and now is not the time [to act in films]. I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college—or not—but wait till she turns 18. She’s a very tough, smart girl. But it’s a cutthroat industry. I wouldn’t want my child to do it.
On Qatar businessman Wissam Al Mana as her soul mate:
JJ: (Laughs) Maybe. Maybe. We’ll see.
Janet also touched on almost developing diabetes.
On health as part of the weight equation:
JJ: Health was always a concern. When I gained weight in 2005, my nutritionist was very worried. I was close to having diabetes. Even when I lost it [and] then gained quite a bit back, there was always the thought of heart disease.
On stress pushing her to the other side of the weight spectrum:
JJ: Knowing I have these problems with body image, I ask my friends and family to tell me when I’ve lost too much. Because I will continue to pick on myself like all other woman do, and say, ‘You need to [lose] more here, more there.’
