Bring the love

International pop star and breast flasher Janet Jackson will dedicate ‘Because of Love’ to her Taipei fans

By Noah Buchan  /  Staff reporter

The star, who has sold more than 100 million albums over her 35-year career, evidently wants readers to understand that growing up, like fame and much else in life, is fraught with confusion and pain.

“Had there been a book that addressed issues like body image, I would have read it immediately. Had there been a book that told me I wasn’t alone — that millions of men, women, and children are confused about self-image — I would have been grateful. That kind of book could have made a difference in my life,” she wrote.

In the end, people will read her book for the same reason they will go to her concert: it’s entertainment, a spectacle. And to enter Jackson’s world, like that of most entertainers of her caliber, the price of admission is worth paying.
