Janet Jackson has revealed that her bad body image stems from comments made by her brother, Michael, when she was younger.
Janet claims that Michael had often called her names, eg "fat butt".
"I was always made to feel I was a fat kid by Michael.
He'd call me brutal names. It really affected me, even as an adult."
Janet Jackson went on to say that she realises that his behaviour stemmed from his own issues with his body.
A cynic might argue that this recent personal "revelation" may have something to do with generating publicity for her forthcoming album, due to be released in September.
