This just in from the L.A. Times....I'm sorry to report that I don't know how this information fits in with the Hoax...any thoughts?

Janet Jackson says brothers verbally abused her

Los Angeles —
Pop singer Janet Jackson says her big brother Michael Jackson used to tease her as a youngster about her bottom, while their other siblings called her a "horse," "pig" and "cow."

In an interview with NBC correspondent Meredith Vieira, on the promotional trail for her memoir, Jackson said the verbal abuse made her insecure about her looks.

"I would literally bang my head up against the wall because I didn't feel attractive," she said. "There was a lot of pain in my life. But I did. I felt very unattractive."

She used to laugh at the barnyard taunts, and said Michael's comments about her bottom were probably affectionate. But rather than confront him about his hurtful words, she simply internalized the pain.

Jackson, 44, relates her childhood trauma in her book "True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself," which will be published on Feb. 15.

As with her siblings, Jackson was beaten by her father who forced her to call him by his first name, Joseph. Still she escaped relatively lightly, recalling that she was struck with a belt just once.

"I know my father loves me," she said. "He just has a very, very different way of showing it."

Michael Jackson, almost eight years older than Janet, once tearfully recalled that his father would "tear you up" with a belt or some other convenient cord, and "would throw you up against the wall."

Of her brother, whom she last saw about six weeks before he died in 2009, Jackson said she embarked on the grieving process long after everyone else in the family.

"I don't know if it was trying to shield the pain, or just trying to hold it all together because I saw that everyone else around me was falling apart. And, never -- never taking that moment to really grieve. Really grieve, even at the service [in July 2009]."

But she recently allowed herself to watch his videos and listen to his music during a nightlong session in Paris.

"And, there was moments when I-- I felt the cry, and moments that made me laugh. And, it was good for me. I needed it," she said.

Jackson's NBC interview will air on Friday and next Monday on "Today," and Sunday Feb 13 on "Dateline."

You know, you're absolutely correct about this! This IS eerie! WTH?

Does anyone know how to put up a side by side comparison between the two interviews?

Thanks!

She couldn't say "The Best is Yet To Come" and that's why she said "There is More to Come" Laughing

The show is not over yet, there is more to come for sure. Wink

What do they mean "opened up" about Michael's death? It's almost been 2 years, and she's had many interviews before this! She's already "opened up" about it. scratch

I also agree about the "There's more to come" thing Smile

Oh, a new opening up. I thought at first this was the other interview she gave. To Oprah, or the Robin Roberts one...

This makes me really think he is not dead. I doubt she would reveal how he "verbally abused" her were he really gone. Btw- REALLY? He was teasing her, NOT verbally abusing her. I work with people being verbally abused (and more)- and this is not verbal abuse. It is sibling teasing - not nice, but people recover from that.

Yes, another book indeed.

You have to go to Oprah's site to see a clear copy of the video (many that were on youtube are gone...) Click on the link and then stop the video at :09

I was looking back to when Janet was in Paris in 2010 and it was during Paris`Fashion week. She busy attending runway shows, parties and other events the entire week...including evenings.

Roberto Cavalli's 40th anniversary party September 29, 2010 in Paris





Other photos from that week










with Naomi Campbell

There are tons of photos on the Internet, of Janet, taken over that entire week. Now, I am not saying that she couldn`t have taken one evening to watch videos etc. but I doubt that someone who was having such a wonderful week with her new man, attending all these events and meeting up with old friends and acquaintances was grieving. Also one night of grieving and she is good to move on with her life...

She looks like a puppet and the bf is the puppet master Laughing Laughing

She is a very pretty woman I must say.

I know people grieves differently, but this family kept "busy" to not grieve or there was nothing to grieve about on the first place.

I can NEVER watch a Janet Jackson interview without thinking there is SOMETHING going on here anymore. It's almost too painful too, especially in this interview conducted. I get the feeling she is really agitated by the constant questions regarding MJ's "death," but at the same time she seems like she is almost constantly hiding her emotions under her sleeve.

May God give you strength Suspicious mind!
The Lisa/Oprah interview is with sunflowers, many open windows and highback chairs. But they both show lots of greenery outside.

Seems like everybody's capitalizing on MJ by writing a book. MJ teasing her about her butt is definately affectionate not abuse, especially since MJ clearly said that was one thing he loved about women.

"I love it when you shake that thing, especially." Laughing

But the media's always out to find something negative to write about MJ.
