Janet Jackson — As the youngest child of the Jackson family, Janet Jackson had to compete with several popular brothers to get some of the limelight. She has made a name for herself, though, and has become a successful performer as well as author, model and spokeswoman.
Many people still remember wardrobe malfunction Janet Jackson experienced during the Super Bowl halftime where she performed with Justin Timberlake, and it has been the topic of many jokes over the years. Janet Jackson has had a few words of wisdom and thoughts over the years that move beyond any embarrassing moment she may have experienced.
“It is my belief that we all have the need to feel special. It is this need that can bring out the best in us, yet the worst in us.”
“My first crush was Barry Manilow. He performed on TV and I taped it. When no one was around, I’d kiss the screen.”
“Fear is the one emotion that unleashed can destroy anything and anyone.”
“You don’t have to hold onto the pain to hold onto the memory.”
“All those songs reflect all the people that live within me.”
“I kinda see everyone as competition. I’m a very competitive person, but I think that’s good. Competition is great and as long as it’s friendly and not malicious things, then I think it’s cool.”
“To have someone to relate to and hopefully enjoy the music and get a positive message out of it, to make the best music that we possibly could, those were the goals.”
“To be given permission to be confused — and remain confused — for as long as it take would have been a huge gift.”
“To a world sick with racism, get well soon.”
“I think it’s great if a guy has a good sized package.”
“I have no clue why, but maybe sometimes when there’s someone you don’t hear from, it’s the person you want to hear from the most.”
“You can tell someone who doesn’t have love in their life, then someone who is in love.”
“In complete darkness we are all the same, it is only our knowledge and wisdom that separates us, don’t let your eyes deceive you.”
