Janet Jackson was Anderson Cooper’s special guest this week on his daytime talk show, Anderson. The superstar discussed her feelings about the sudden death of Whitney Houston, and offered advice to Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina.

Anderson: What advice do you have for her family for her kid. For her child?
Janet: It’s a very very tough time. Even though it’s still a loss. I lost my brother, she lost her mother. There’s still a difference, even though there’s a still a loss to a family, I don’t know what that’s like being so young. It was hard for me. It was very very difficult for me. I didn’t want to accept it, it’s very difficult. You have to come to terms at some point, you have to actually give it up to God and it sounds so mean but you have to move on you can’t hold onto that because it can be very devastating. Sometimes therapy is the best thing.

Anderson: TV People always use that word closure when they are talking about loss, as someone who has lost family members as well, I don’t think there is such a thing as closure. I think that’s a made up TV word.

Janet: No, I don’t think there is either, but you have to go on with life. You figure out a way to move on. It’s always right here. There’s never a day, not one day has gone by where I don’t think about my brother and my other brothers and sisters say the same thing.

Watch video clips of the interview after the break. Tune in to Anderson on Monday, Feb 20, for the full interview.

As strong as Whitney’s faith was, I’m sure BobbyC has it too. Godblessher!

    I agree with Janet. The thing with Janet is she is older and Bobbi is younger and has few positive people in her life. Everyone is out for selling stories and getting money. I pray she finds peace and comfort in those who TRULY love her.

  • Roc

    OK…I bet ya’ll gonna slaughter me but I always HATED the name Boobi Kristina…Just like when I named my son Aidyn and my daddy was like “where the fluck you get that name from? I ain’t never heard of no shyt like that”

    Hold up, call me insensitive but,….

    Children lose their parents everyday, lets not forget that. Most which are under 18 and are no where as financially well off as Bobbi Kristina. Just because she was/is the child of 2 celebrities what makes her any different from other kids who lose their mom / dad…. sorry I just read something online that pissed me all the way off. A co-worker of mine, whom I hate by the way, lost his dad at 10, his brother was 8. He hung himself and he found him (probably reason for why he is the way he is) but nonetheless he had a very hard life afterwards, grieving and financially. What’s makes Bobbi K any more special because she lost her mom verses the 10s of thousands of kids who lose a parent every year. Half of you don’t know her or never met her mom.. Why is the world stopping to grieve 1 person, when people are dying every minute……

    ============

    I think people may have been used to Janet being skinny and a had temporary lapse, whereas JHud always been big then pop up as a size “0”. Maybe. I won’t express my feelings on how I feel about Jenny Craig, Nurtisystem and the like. It probably won’t be popular.

    Janet…you heifer you LOOK GOOD! (That’s a compliment)

    So well said Ms.Jackson.

    There is no such thing as closure and as human beings we know that is a journey we must complete. Loss is something you never get over. I’m internally grateful that I lived/raised by my grandparents until I was 12. I lost my grandmother 3 months after my daughter died. LAWD I SWEAR I wanted to be buried that day. I CUT UP AT THAT Funeral, I did evrything but try and climb in the casket. I continue to greive the loss on special occasions or when something comes up and wish I could ask my grandma or when I see a girl that would be my daughters age. You learn to cope, and it gets easier but you never forget.

    Wow, TheRealAshland! Forgive us for praying for a poor young lady who just lost a parent! Regardless of her being well off or not, she is still without a mother. My heart goes out to any person who loses someone very close, only difference is those million of people are faceless at the moment and BobbyC is not! Nobody is giving her extra prayer because her mom was a celebrity, we’re simply offering solace to a child and family that is obviously hurting. I’m going to pray for you to for assuming that status makes a difference when it comes to loss! JMHO.

    @GA GIRL – Sorry I missed the question, no big deal! I was 25 weeks pregnant, she was born weighing 1 pound 6 ounces and lived for 2 weeks. My son was born weighing 1 pound 1 ounce and is now 14 years old. For the life of me I couldn’t figure out why she didn’t live, but it wasn’t meant for her to be here, I learned incredible lessons about pain and grief and went on to work with families with children terminal diagnosis. I’m certain that was the season that God planned for me at that time.

    i dunno why some people get so offended at the press and fans when certain people die. like MJ, whitney sold MILLIONS of records around the world, had a beautiful voice that crossed genres. the world seen her rise and her fall. people get emotionally involved with celebs. thats part of it. for ex: we seen beyonce as a teenager in DC grow up get married, she had a kid, and people are happy for her. some get emotionally involved, and thats that
    if you dont care :applause: but dont tear down anyone else

    Cali I had a 26 weeker but she was 2.6 and they kept saying she was “big” and I just was “no”. I understand that now tho. :hug:

    But sometimes those are the people who could possibly offer good adice. Not because their lives were perfect, but because they’ve made the same mistake too, so they can advise tell you were they went wrong and help you out so you don’t go down that same road.

    Yeah neonatal gave a bish PTSD…Couldn’t stand to hear that freaking beeping. Had a phobia about hospitals, babies,….a whole bunch of mess, but God is good, he has the power to heal. :hug:

  • Terri B

    I’ll listen to advice from someone with bad credit all day as well as someone with good credit, so I know not to do what they did. Evaluate both sides.

    @KDUB

    Very true but folks ALWAYS come out of the woodwork at times like this. People need to be relevant again for a few more minutes and networks need filler and juicy sound bites. Gone be a lot of phony BS for the next little while.

    I think this Whitney thing gone get as bad as or worse than MJ. :no:

    @TerriB his racist fat behind needs more than prayer.. but my rant was directed towards something I read online today.

    But I’m just saying, we don’t know about everyone’s situation in the world, so we can’t comment on them. Doesn’t mean they are any different. just means we don’t know about them and what’s going on with them.

  • KDub

    Okay she got a Nutrisystem commercial out…When was the last time Janet even DID an interview? She is KNOWN for her privacy. But she up here on Andy Coopa offering adivce and whatnot. And she fugged this chile pappy. And had beef with her momma over what we NOW KNOW is some homosexual azz dack? Only in Hollywood I tell you. Cause this? Is hypocritical at BEST. These folks we don’t hear not ish from but here they come all out like roaches in the LIGHT somebody passes.

    @GA GIRL – Sorry I missed the question, no big deal! I was 25 weeks pregnant, she was born weighing 1 pound 6 ounces and lived for 2 weeks. My son was born weighing 1 pound 1 ounce and is now 14 years old. For the life of me I couldn’t figure out why she didn’t live, but it wasn’t meant for her to be here, I learned incredible lessons about pain and grief and went on to work with families with children terminal diagnosis. I’m certain that was the season that God planned for me at that time.

    @KDUB

    It’s crazy cause this even happens in non famous families. People that you ain’t NEVER fcked with in life want to come around after you dead and eat and drank in your honor when they wouldn’t even share a table with your ass before.

    That’s why I hate funerals. I’ll say my goodbyes when we are alone cause I cannot stand those smiling faces telling lies over the bodies of my loved ones. :nono:

    We grew up w/Janet. We’ve seen her weight go up and down. When we were introduced to JHud she was already a plus size woman.

    Janet…you heifer you LOOK GOOD! (That’s a compliment)
    So well said Ms.Jackson.
    There is no such thing as closure and as human beings we know that is a journey we must complete. Loss is something you never get over. I’m internally grateful that I lived/raised by my grandparents until I was 12. I lost my grandmother 3 months after my daughter died. LAWD I SWEAR I wanted to be buried that day. I CUT UP AT THAT Funeral, I did evrything but try and climb in the casket. I continue to greive the loss on special occasions or when something comes up and wish I could ask my grandma or when I see a girl that would be my daughters age. You learn to cope, and it gets easier but you never forget.

    :hug:
    I agree with you i think of the ones i’ve lost and life does go on but you NEVER forget.

  • dada76

    I think some people are forgetting that

    1. She didn’t do this interview because she wanted to talk about Whitney

    2. She was asked the questions about Whitney I think she answered well.

    Every celebrity and there mama are gonna be asked about it for the next few weeks.

  • flsun99

    I lost my Mother in 1995…she died in my arms from a long battle of Breast Cancer. I was only 20 years old. I still cry from time to time. You NEVER get over losing a parent, you just learn to cope with it.

    I’m praying for Bobbi Kristina. I pray that God protects her and shield her from people who mean no good to her. I pray He keeps her strong through this trying time and keep her safe (from herself as well). I’m very sadden by Whitney’s death. I don’t know why it is heavy on my mind so but it is.
