Janet Jackson was spotted outside CNN studios in Hollywood on Thursday (February 28), signing autographs for fans after emerging from her limo before going inside to appear on ‘Larry King Live’.
Asked how she’s avoided ending up like Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan, Janet told Larry, “I have to give the credit to my parents, really. They really made sure that we were grounded. You know, it might sound silly, but I always tell this story that, regardless of how many fans are screaming for you and to how many audiences you please — thousands and thousands and thousands of people — you come home at the end of the day and we had tons of chores to do. Tons of chores to do. My parents — well, they still do have like three acres. And they used to make us rake every leaf in the yard. We’d get up at like 7:00 a.m. Every day.”
