TJ Jackson Calls His Aunt Janet Jackson For Being Too Sexy In Her Career
Responding to a tweeted video showing Janet famous for her sexy performance at a previous concert, TJ Jackson expressed his disappointment with his aunt.
I also never liked when she did this in concerts. I don’t like when women are overly erotic in art… it demeans and objectifies women in an unhealthy way. I like Janet “That’s the way love goes”. 👸🏾

I’m sorry I don’t like this. I’m not. Her gender expression hasn’t diminished at all. Especially when a lot of the men in your family also make erotic music. Including 3T https://t.co/iNjW053nEJ
