24 Jun JANET JACKSON IS AGELESS AS THE COVER STORY FOR ESSENCE
Janet Jackson is the star of the July/August issue of Essence dubbed The Happiness Issue. The music Icon/Actress has been in the limelight for over 20 years. She has been through various phases in life and still manages to radiate so much happiness and positivity.
The 2018 Essence Festival Headliner opens up about her battle with depression and her journey to happiness so far.
“When it comes to happiness, I’m no expert, I have only my life experience as a guide. I’ve known great happiness and great sadness. But I guess the key question is, What do I really know about happiness?”
With unmatched candour, Jackson says “In my forties: Like millions of women in the world, I still heard voices inside my head berating me, voices questioning my value, Happiness was elusive.

These days, she finds happiness in God, inspirational people and her son, Eissa.
