Janet Jackson reveals everything that she eats in a single day

Janet Jackson reveals everything that she eats in a single day

While the world will never be the same following the death of Michael Jackson back in 2009, we still have a talented member of that family around in the form of Janet Jackson. A singer and celebrity in her own right, Janet Jackson is known for her wide-ranging discography, her appearances in films such as the Nutty Professor II... and accidentally exposing a boob with Justin Timberlake during the Super Bowl 38 half-time show in 2004.

Now, it's 2018, and would you believe it - Janet Jackson is 52 (52!) years old. Not only that, but she had her first child at 50 in February 2017, at an age where some people are becoming grandparents for the first time. So how on Earth does she do it, and how on earth does she look like she does now?! Is it witchcraft? It's... it's witchcraft, isn't it?

Turns out, it isn't witchcraft - rather, Janet Jackson's rockin' bod is simply the result of plenty of discipline, and the hard work of her personal trainer Paulette Sybliss - who Janet adores, by the way. Sybliss and Janet had a long and extensive chat about the popstar's cravings, likes and dislikes, helping her to put together a diet that worked for her.

"She knows how crazy my life is, and she understands it. Sometimes I have an emergency call and I'll say, 'I really want to work out, but I don't know how long this is.' She'll say, 'If you want, I'll wait for you.' And other times when I've been so mentally exhausted, we'll just take a two-mile walk and talk, and it feels so good."

"She's incredible," Janet said of Sybliss while speaking to E!. "And she never made me feel like I have to deprive myself of anything. She would say, 'What do you like? OK, I'm going to put that in. What do you enjoy? OK, I'm going to put that in.'"

So what kind of things does Janet have in her diet? By and large, it boiled down to a light pescatarian diet; something that was largely meat-free, but allowed Janet Jackson to indulge her love of fish. "I love catfish," she explained. "I love a fried fish. But I'm also crazy about grilled fish."

Luckily for Janet's waistline, she's not a massive fun of junk food; she revealed in an interview with Atlanta's 96.7 The Beat that she'd never heard of Hot Cheetos. I wish I'd never heard of them. That being said, there are a couple of candies she goes nuts for.

"I love Snickers," Jackson revealed, but there are a few other candies she's getting into as well. "There were a lot of sweets that I have only tried as an adult. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Is that the little round one? I just tried that last year for the first time. It's very good. I finally tried a KitKat a couple of years ago."

Well, there you go, folks. After a lifetime in the limelight, Janet Jackson's finally got a life she can enjoy as a single parent with her son, and it looks as if she has found the diet to match it. Good on you, Janet. Good on you.
