Michael Jackson Used to Torture Janet
The guy who was always pissed at the world for all the teasing he got was the world's biggest teaser himself!
In her new book True You, Janet Jackson reveals that while she adored her brother and he had a beautiful heart, he would mercilessly make fun of her when they were kids.
"He often told me that I needed to be thinner," she relates.
Michael would compare his little sis unfavorably to a thin, white girl at the roller rink, who was deemed to be perfect.
He'd even call Janet "Donk" as in donkey.
But the "Control" singer has long ago risen above all that.
"I actually cherish the name today," she writes, "because it was his gift to me."
That's nice, Donk, but I'd rather have diamonds!
