Janet Jackson Sympathizes With Bobbi Kristina Brown, Says Life Must Go On
Janet Jackson has suggested Whitney Houston's family consider therapy sessions for the superstar's heartbroken daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown as she mourns the death of her mom.
Jackson was asked for her thoughts about the tragedy during a taped interview with newsman Anderson Cooper, which will air next week, and revealed she can't help thinking about the teenager, who was hospitalised and treated for stress and anxiety at the weekend.
Jackson, who is still mourning the death of her brother Michael in 2009, insists she knows what it's like to lose a loved one - and she's happy to offer up advice for Whitney's daughter.
She tells Cooper, "You have to come to terms at some point. You have to actually give it up to God. It sounds so mean, but you have to move on. You can't hold onto that because it can be very devastating... Sometimes therapy is the best thing.
"There's never a day, not one day has gone by where I don't think about my brother. You have to go on with life. You figure out a way to move on."
But she can only imagine that Bobbi Kristina's grief is much greater than her own: "I lost my brother, she lost her mother. There's a difference (and) I don't know what that's like being so young."
