Janet Jackson Prestige Hong Kong

Janet Jackson is featured on the January 2008 cover of Prestige Hong Kong magazine. And discusses her relationship with Jermaine Dupri and how she maintained in Hollyweird as a child star:

Prestige: There are conflicting reports of Jermaine being your boyfriend, your fiancé or your husband.

Janet: We’re not married. I call him my boyfriend. Jermaine calls me his wife, I’ve heard him say that as well . . . But not yet. I don’t know if that will ever happen. Maybe, I really don’t know. It’s because, at least for myself, this space that we’re in I think is so nice. I feel like maybe marriage is a jinx for me. I’ve done it twice; I’m not trying to be Elizabeth Taylor and do it eight times. Where we are is good and we’re happy and there’s no drama. And plus, I think there’s something about having a spiritual connection where you don’t have to have a certificate to validate the love. So it’s all good – if you make those vows to one another and you know that you have a connection, that’s all you need. I really do think [marriage] is just a way for the government to keep tabs on everybody, I truly do. Now people think you’ve got to grow up and get married and have a family, you don’t have to do that if you don’t want that. Just because everyone else does that doesn’t mean you have to.

Prestige: You started your career as a TV actress. Was it daunting to make the transition as an adult into films?

Janet:When I was 10 I started to act. It wasn’t difficult [to make the transition]. A lot of things happened to the kids I was around, like Todd Bridges, Gary [Coleman], Dana [Plato], and everyone would say to me, “Why hasn’t something like that happened to you?” I’ve just been thankful and never tried to think about it. I just thank God. Everyone’s life is different. Not to say their parents raised them incorrectly, but I think a lot of it does have to do with their upbringing. But then again, you never know what that person is going through, how it affects them.

    She looks good. However, she is another one that I wouldn’t miss if she retired. From “singing”! I like her as an actress.

    She was very candid in this interview which certainly is not the norm for her. I’m wondering if it is a marketing scheme to let fans get a glimpse into her life that she hasn’t allowed them to have in the past.

    I think 2008 will be her year. She has had a few flops in the past but I think this album will be a hit for her.

    LOL, Sugar Walls. I remember that song. You know all the Chinese Businessmen are loving these pics of Janet, lol. So, Janet takes back the Dominatrix look Riyawnna stole from her, and makes it look classy to boot. Welcome back Janet.

  • Boomboomroom

    LOL, yeah Drock that nose is a little messed up, but hopefully she’ll make a good album.

  • Dee

    hmm … photoshop much ?

  • Janet Please!!

    I think she needs to retire and do something else. How can she keep competiting with the other young broads in the game. Janet its over just release a grestest hits and then get married or something…
