Janet Jackson Speaks About Michael at BET Awards (VIDEO)


Janet Jackson made a tearful statement on Sunday night’s BET Awards, paying tribute to her brother Michael. Janet was escorted on stage by host Jamie Foxx towards the end of the broadcast, and fighting back tears addressed the crowd. (See the video of her emotional tribute below.)

“My entire family wanted to be here tonight, but it was just too painful,” Jackson said. “To you, Michael is an icon. To us, Michael is family and he will forever live in all of our hearts. On behalf of my family and myself, thank you for all of your love, thank you for all of your support. We miss him so much, thank you so much.”

No doubt this has been an extremely difficult time for the entire Jackson family. As a parent I grieve especially for Michael’s three children. I wonder what role Janet, their aunt, will play in their lives as they cope with life without their father.
