Janet Jackson: Had chest bound for sitcom at age 11

Friday 12, November 2010



Popstar Janet Jackson has revealed that she had her chest bound in order to appear in a sitcom aged 11.

Jackson, who starred in '70s show Good Times, said that the decision of producers to hide her figure badly affected her self-esteem.

Janet told Health magazine: "[Dealing with body image] was hard from a very early age. My first true experience with it was when I did Good Times, and they used to bind my chest because I was developing breasts at a young age.

"I got the part when I was 10 years old and started shooting when I was 11. I was a very quiet kid. A really sweet kid, I might add.

"I never said no. I said, 'OK, that's fine if that's what you want to do'. I would always cave in - still as an adult I continued to [cave in]. I never told anybody that for so long. Not until I became an adult did anyone ever know."

Michael Jackson's sister added: "It immediately makes you think, 'The way I am isn't good enough'. That's the message that it sent to me.

"'The way you look now isn't right...' It would make me sad. It wouldn't make me mad. It would hurt."
