Janet Jackson appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” yesterday and opened up about her late brother, Michael.
Appearing on Friday’s “Oprah,” to promote “Why Did I Get Married Too,” Janet opened up about her late brother:
“One thing that sticks in my head is his laughter,” Janet told Oprah, recalling fondly her late brother, who passed away last June at the age of 50 of acute Propofol intoxication. “And, the last time I saw him, which was two days before my birthday (which was on May 16), at my parents’ surprise party, I was being silly, like I always did when we were kids… and he kept looking at me a just cracking up.”
“When you heard that he was gone, and gone because of drugs, were you shocked, or were you feeling like somewhere in the back of your mind, you always felt that that day could come?” Oprah asked.
“I felt that day could possibly come. I think everyone thinks that who has a family member or a friend…” Janet said.
Janet says the last time she saw Michael alive was two days before her birthday last year. The singer explains that she won’t watch the movie “This Is It” because it’s too painful. While Oprah played a clip for the audience, Janet said, “I needed to turn around.”
