Despite myself, I do find it refreshing to hear the following story about Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri’s relationship. From People:
Janet Jackson’s boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri, didn’t mind when she packed on a reported 60 lbs. for a film role, the singer says. In fact, “He loved it,” Jackson, 40, says on Friday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show. “He likes my true self,” Jackson tells DeGeneres. “It’s unconditional love there, so he was always grabbing my extra stuff and looking into my eyes and telling me that he loves me and it (the weight) needs love too, and then he’d kiss me and smile at me.”
In all honesty, I do find that anecdote endearing. Jermaine clearly doesn’t believe in Mo Backfat Mo Problems, and I tend to second that emotion.
