Janet Jackson Has a Good Vibe
Janet Jackson will appear on the double cover of VIBE Magazine‘s April 2008 issue, the magazine’s ‘first-ever’ photo issue.
On growing up in her household: “I remember being a kid and they’d come over … you take so much for granted…. you’re not thinking about the fact that it’s Marvin Gaye over all the time, or Diana [Ross] or Smokey [Robinson].”
On her relationship with super-producer Jermaine Dupri: “Married or not, it’s not important … I feel like it’s it …. It’s been about eight years. He’s just a sweetheart. Truly a good-hearted person.”
On being a responsible child in the entertainment business: “One of the major things was my work ethic, since I was a kid … I never had my mother wake me up … I’d get myself up everyday. It never struck me … that’s a lot of difficulty for a 10-year-old … I don’t know if it’s something in the genes, or from watching my brothers, seeing them working hard.”
The cover was shot in January by fashion photographer Michelangelo di Battista at New York City’s Milk Studios.
Janet‘s double cover for Vibe hits newsstands March 4th. Her latest album Discipline is in stores now!
