Janet says her body was criticized when she was a teen and pre-teen. "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."
That was nonsense. Janet Jackson looked fabulous then and she is even more brilliant now.
