Janet Jackson Opens Up About Weight Issues Saying Jermaine Dupri Taught Her To Love Her Body

​ ​ ​ ​

Janet Jackson sits down with "Extra" to talk about her new movie For Colored Girls and her new book True You tonight.  Find out why she says her relationship with Jermaine Dupri was pivotal to her personal growth inside...

 

 

For Colored Girls star Janet Jackson opens up about her life as she promotes the film and her new book True You.  In her new book, which focuses on a lot of the body image issues she grew up with as child star, she says her involvement with ex-boyfriend Jermaine Dupri was pivotal to her growth.  "My life didn't change until I opened up and started to talk about it," she says of her image issues.  

"It was my relationship with Jermaine.  Up until that point I would still put on a pair of pants and if my butt looked too big, I didn't want the pants, as much as I loved them. But it was
nine years ago when he said 'your butt's fine the way it is."

Although the couple split in 2009, Janet remains "really grateful to him for showing me that side of myself." As for her book, she now wants to help other women by detailing her own
struggles.

"It's a self-help  book. And people always ask me about the weight
gain, the weight loss. What was the workout regimen, the nutrition, so
instead of just writing about that, I wanted to get to the bottom of it,
which meant I had to go back to my childhood."

Her new movie Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls opens today.  

Here's a clip of the segment:

Last night I went to see

Last night I went to see Tyler Perry’s film adaptation of one of my all-time favorite literary/ theatrical masterworks, Ntozake Shange’s brilliant “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow is Enuf.” I will leave the film review for the film critics, but what I will say in one sentence is that Perry’s plot is flimsy as a g-string, but most of Shange’s poetry remains intact and each of the films actresses turn in riveting performances. However, the storyline that follow’s one of the female character’s has her married to a “DL brother” who eventually, and predictably, infects her with H.I.V. While the statistics clearly show that H.I.V is an escalating problem in the Black Community and now more than ever Black women, in fact, the Center For Disease Control (CDC) has reported that, “By race/ethnicity, African Americans face the most severe burden of HIV in the United States (US). At the end of 2007, blacks accounted for almost half (46%) of people living with a diagnosis of HIV infection in the 37 states and 5 US dependent areas with long-term, confidential, name-based HIV reporting. In 2006, blacks accounted for nearly half (45%) of new infections in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Even though new HIV infections among blacks overall have been roughly stable since the early 1990s, compared with members of other races and ethnicities they continue to account for a higher proportion of cases at all stages of HIV—from new infections to deaths. At some point in their lifetimes, 1 in 16 black men will be diagnosed with HIV infection, as will 1 in 30 black women.” According to these facts there is no way we can deny the terrible realities of H.I.V in our community. The irrefutable truth is that this virus is killing us and it’s prevention must be at the top of our collective objectives. However, the problem I have with Tyler Perry’s film is the way he went about discussing this topic. In this film we see a dirty, low-down, down-low, brother whose disgusting penchant for bending over has lead once again to the destruction of a Black women’s life. Again, while there is no denying the existence of a so-called “down low” brother, it would do us all justice to examine the way a culture of intolerance and homophobia has contributed to the “down-low” phenomenon and also how it contributes to the alarming H.I.V/A.I.D.S rates among African Americans. During the movie, the “DL” brother is often seen glancing at men who walk by and is even caught in a compromising position by police officers early in the film, each of these moments was greeting by a wall of utter disgust from the 85% Black audience, one lady in the theater went so far as to yell out “Sick!” as the “DL” brother confessed his “dark” deeds. I sat in that theatre and watched while my life flashed before my eyes. I thought of all the pain and self loathing that I have known in my life as a result of the same perverse intolerance that permeated that room. I thought of all the times I myself considered suicide because the rainbow of rejection, heartache and heartbreak was too much!!! I am far beyond hurt or upset, I am pissed the FUCK off and I will not take it in darkness anymore! Healing cannot begin in darkness, healing is dependant on the transformative power of light-- and we--my fellow black people are in serious need of physical, spiritual and psychological healing. For Perry or any of us to continue to breath life into the myth of the “DL” brother is to commit auto-genocide. The “DL” brother is not some creature of darkness created by the devil or some otherworldly beast, he is created by our own fear and intolerance. He remains unintelligible in the black community. He is a man who desires the love of another man and for too many of us that concept remains an ontological, existential dilemma that is too often met with rejection and biblical dogma and because of this he is forced into the shadows of our streets and imaginations. If we are to increase his life chances as well as our own we must see how we are ,in part, responsible for his existence and we must begin the grueling yet enlightening work of dealing candidly with our own prejudices. Perhaps, for some of us, this will mean facing secrets hidden deep within ourselves that have too long been disguised with homophobia and sexual, machismo-substantiating, rage! This letter is a call and plea to all my beautiful brothers and sisters for long denied love and understanding. I am not afraid to tell you I love and need you, you are my life blood, you are my very sustenance. I want us to work together as a unit to save our lives. However, my body will no longer remain idle as it is sacrificed for the advances of Black masculinity, sanctifiedness, or your personal comfort, etc. I will not let you kill me! I will fight you, I will confront you, I will tell our private business in public, I will scream as long as I have breath and fire in my body or until you physically kill me, because what we fail to see is that if we continue down this dark and perilous road it won’t be long until we are all dead due to disease, hatred, ignorance, perversity and homophobia! I am counting on us!

Most of what you are saying

Most of what you are saying is true but the movie is 2hrs long and just touched upon issues. It is impossible to go in depth about the nature of the DL brother unless the movie is solely based on tackling this issue. For colored girls was a good movie for all to see and it shed light on many issues not just one. If you want to know more about the origin of the down low brother, research and write your own book or produce your own movie. This movie was not just about gay men!

Jermaine ain't no more helped Janet love herself than the man on the moon here was perfectly beautiful woman who has damn near ruined her looks with obsessive amounts of plastic she didn't need she starting to look more and more like mj and not the good version I don't know what Joe did to them but the sickness run deep because one sick child is a fluke but all those Jackson kids ain't got all they marbles except for reeby and that's only because she married and left home young...that goes to show that money can buy a lot of things but mental health and happiness aren't on the list and I'm a fan of Ms. Jackson but I can see with this latest round of plastic surgery this gone be a repeat of mj

Critics torn Color Purple

Critics torn Color Purple apart and it and is considered a classic. I saw the movie...it was awesome. I am proud of TP. Sorry but critics are no different than people who write reviews for CDs..theyare paid to say the good stuff. Use your own judgement. Literally every comment Twitter last night was in approval of the movie after they saw it. You be your own judge too.

Saw the movie yesterday and

Saw the movie yesterday and the entire case was wonderful. Anyone who is stupid enough to let critics reviews determine how you spend your money is, well....I, too, have noticed how the critics (except the NYTimes) have been particularly vitriolic but if you take a chance on the film I think you will see differently. EVERYONE (including the men) did a great job. Definitely Tyler's best and if we were smart we would use it to open the doors for the production of more serious black films.

Bittersweet with her and

Bittersweet with her and Dupri. I really liked them as a couple. Janet always said that his love for her was unconditional. Fat, thin, whatever, it didn't matter. Hope she's happy.

Love Janet, but she's crazy

Love Janet, but she's crazy and that's a fact. Stupid papa joe got them searching for dear moments to hold on to, sources to attribute to their confidence since he dropped the ball, but Janet can save that Jermaine Dupri confidence builder for the birds. Janet's been super cute since goodtimes and fine since rhythm nation, and she's had a whole world of people proclaiming her fine-ness. Didn't no short nasty gremlin with ashy braids make her finally love her butt, she's just showing pity on this dude to make him feel like something valuable came out the relationship, that's nice of her to make him feel like he helped build a more confident Janet, but um, Not buying it Janet. And how credible is butt confidence coming from someone who spoke dirty about Tahiry's butt, The so-called confidence Jermaine created came from a nasty selfish place, he just likes big butts Janet, it wasn't about you it was about him making you feel comfortable enough to put it in his face. How often do dudes pretend to build up girls confidence just to get them to leave the lights on and lay on top of the sheets. Confidence building my a$$. Anywho, didn't know this movie was done and don't care, don't want to see another one of Tyler's sad, abusive, blacks struggling movies. He need to pep up and make something happy and reflective of a well-functioning confident black community. He need not worry about informing the world continuously of how hard blacks have it, Black History month takes care of that sad story every year, and the story really isn't that reflective of the now, make me a Cosby's type movie. And Tyler being the only black film producer doing big things means nothing if the only stories he can create revolve around sadness, struggle and abuse. Ain't nobody trying to keep paying $11 to be uncomfortable and watch abuse, rapes, dirty secrets. PEP UP TYLER.

*DIES* You hit the nail right

*DIES* You hit the nail right on the head! I swear Janet needs to do some DEEP soul searching, REAL TALK. What did JD do besides tell Janet "I love your a** it's so so deaf, ayeee" I mean, really. Does it take someone to acknowledge her behind and admire her regardless when she's fat to sweep her off her feet? I sincerely think Janet has some deep seated issues. Bless her heart. The man cheated on her and even said "ladies, know that you're f--king with a bad boy so know what bad boys do" in reference to his cheating ways. Oh well. Janet will forever be confused and I dare one of her loony stans to font me. I'm actually a big fan myself but I'm not oblivious to the fact that Janet is a bit touched.

WOW ok. I remember Janet had

WOW ok. I remember Janet had always said that Jermaine loved her through all of her ups and downs with her weight, and that is why she loved him because he loved her no matter. Now why they broke up its none of our business. At that time in their relationship he made her feel good about herself. So how are you going to stop this woman from feeling the way that she does. If she knows Jermaine made her feel good about her body, then that is how she feels.

I just saw the movie tonight

I just saw the movie tonight (OPENING NIGHT OF COURSE) and I was so insightful. My man brought up a good point though he said that the was definitely about the issues that women deal with from day to day but what about the men. Something could've been done with the men except locking one up and the other dying nonetheless. I know the title was for COLORED GIRLS but COLORED GUYS as well...

SUPPORT FOR COLORED GIRLS! If

SUPPORT FOR COLORED GIRLS! If you listen to the reviews, they are discouraging. What white movie critic can relate to the plight of black women? NONE of them. As black women, you will be able to relate to each of the characters in some form (if you're a young YBF, you will one day). Janet was fierce in the movie and you can tell that she's in a different, more peaceful place in her life. Loves her!

I urge everyone to go and see

I urge everyone to go and see this movie. Do you think the white establishment really wants a movie with an all Black cast (women no less) making money? You need to go out and support, show them who is in charge.

To: Letgetitt (i re-post my comment to one of your post so you'd be able to see it lol) And white peple idiolize black people. They put in our heads that if you don't look like them then something's wrong with us but while they say this they're sitting in tan salons, beaches (trying to get darker), getting fillers in the lips, getting cheek bones, relaxing their hair so it becomes curly and looks thicker. They love us, but instead of telling us we're beautiful they rather break us down. Its funny how they people that say what we should look like wishes they looked like the people that they're trying to break down.

@Letgetitt For one your

@Letgetitt For one your statement shows ignorance because As black people we are fortunate to have all different shades of Color. Something white people do not have that's why they tan theirselves to deaf. Have of them which they had bigger bottoms and fuller lips things we are naturally blessed with.as far as hair they may have a plus on that but damn they need to wash that shit every day because if they don't that shit smell like dog hair I know because I have white friends. In all honestly different nationalities wish they had something of a other.

Critics suck, so I don't pay

Critics suck, so I don't pay them any attention. Movie was worth my money...abuse is no joke. It is so eerie how much I see Mike when I look at her...

I absolutely love Janet

I absolutely love Janet Jackson. She seems so incredibly humble and sweet. I just came from the movie and she did a great job. Who cares what "critics" have to say about it because they rarely support any of our films. Please go and support this stellar cast of African-American actresses. If this movie is not successful then we won't ever get another chance to have this many black leading ladies again.
