Janet Jackson’s long been a gay favorite. No surprise, then, that she did a little pre-album sit down with The Advocate.
Journo Brandon Voss gets into the thick of Jackson’s gay activism, what she would have happened if “Tito or one of your other siblings” came out – “I honestly don’t know,” says Jackson – and whether she thinks of her homos when writing her tracks:
BV: Do you specifically keep gay fans in mind during your writing and recording process?
JJ: For certain songs, yeah, for sure I do. I was thinking about ’em when I was making “Rock With You” on the new album–it just has that feel, that beat to it. I kept stressing that I have to have something for the kids, I need to have something for the children!
Isn’t that infringing on Michael’s territory?
