Janet Jackson Covers 'Health' December 2010

Janet Jackson Covers 'Health' December 2010

Janet Jackson graces the cover of Health magazines December 2010 issue in an elegant red dress.

Here is what the For Colored Girls actress had to share with the mag:

On choosing acting over singing: “I have more of a passion for acting than I do singing, because singing comes so much easier to me. Acting is more of a challenge. I always say to people, ‘I’m really in the wrong business because I don’t like being in front of huge crowds, and I don’t like it when a lot of people are looking at me.’”

On Hollywood’s obsession with weight: “People tend to put entertainers on pedestals. We’re human beings, just like you… whether we have money or not, we still have bills to pay, we still have our stresses.”

On being criticized as a kid because of her body: “When I did Good Times, they used to bind my chest because I was developing breasts at a young age. It immediately makes you think, ‘The way I am isn’t good enough.’ They thought I was too heavy and that I needed to lose weight. When I look back at the show, I was your average-size kid.”
