Sydney, Feb 9 (ANI): Pop singer Janet Jackson has revealed that
her big brother Michael Jackson used to tease her as a youngster
about her bottom, while their other siblings called her a "horse,"
"pig" and "cow."
Jackson said the verbal abuse made her insecure about her
"I would literally bang my head up against the wall because I
didn't feel attractive," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as
saying in an interview with NBC.
"There was a lot of pain in my life. But I did. I felt very
unattractive," she said on the promotional trail for her
She used to laugh at the taunts, and said MJ's comments about
her bottom were probably affectionate.
So, rather than confront him about his hurtful words, she simply
internalized the pain.
Jackson relates her childhood trauma in her book True You: A
Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself, which will be published on
February 15. (ANI)
