Los Angeles, Feb 17 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Janet Jackson has said that she was “forced” to diet since she was just an 11-years-old girl.

The 44-year-old said that along the way she encountered some self esteem issues arising from the feeling that she was not liked for what she is. She doesn’t particularly understand why she was made to diet because she claims that she was not a chubby kid.

Jackson said that the producers of “Good Times” told her that she needs to stick to a diet if she is ever going to keep her role on the show. According to her she did and that had a very damaging effect on her self esteem.

Jackson said that, “It’s been a tough road, a tough battle since I was very little and not feeling worthy. There were self-esteem issues, issues dealing with food stemming from when I was very, very young. Not feeling I was good enough as I was.”

The younger sister of Michael Jackson explained to CNN”s “Piers Morgan Show” that her weight has been fluctuating over the years because she is an “emotional eater”. She said though nobody has told her, she knows that she is “addicted to food.”
