Janet Jackson Dishes On Being "An Emotional Eater"

“Your scale can be your worst enemy, so it’s really not about a number — it’s about looking in the mirror and feeling good about you and feeling healthy and loving who you are when you see that person in the mirror,” Janet tells the show, in an interview airing tonight. “I am an emotional eater. There are people that don’t eat when they’re stressed. I eat when I stress, when I’m down, when I’m in that state of not being in the greatest space. And that’s my place of comfort that I go to for that moment. Then I kick myself after doing it.”

In addition to talking about her battle with the bulge, Janet revealed she’s nervous for her niece, Paris Jackson, who is set to make her feature film debut in Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. “I’m excited for her, but it worries me a little bit,” Janet said. “I wish that she would maybe wait ... I got into the business at a young age. It’s not an easy thing. Your childhood…you completely lose and I didn’t get to experience that, so she has the rest of her adult life to be that actress that she wants to be and I told her that. Yeah, I told her I would take this time to just study… really, really study the craft.”

Good for her!
