The famous 'Book Soup' on Sunset boulevard has announced an in-store event that will surely bring a human tidal wave in the tiny book store: Janet Jackson will sign her book ‘True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself’, on Friday April 15th between 3pm – 4:30pm.
So if you’re unemployed – yeah, who is free in the middle of the afternoon on a weekday? – and are planning to head to the store, be sure to buy her book at the store since she will not sign anything else, and be informed that photos will not be allowed unfortunately.
It’s first come first served, but the store is requesting that people not line up before 1 pm, err… I wonder how they are going to possibly enforce this.
In her book, Janet Jackson supposedly reveals her very personal struggle with self-esteem and writes about good brother Michael teasing her relentlessly until she began to believe that she wasn’t good enough. She tells about her addiction to food, her fluctuating weight and how she developed a self-destructive pattern and ultimately depression. The book explains that it took her 44 years to finally come to terms with who she is and find some balance in her life.
Good for her! The Jackson family is definitively the most dysfunctional one in the business, but Janet effectively seems to be over the bad part of her life. She is currently in the middle of a world wide tour and, on June 14th, she will even be the first pop artist to perform under the I.M. Pei glass pyramid at the Louvre Museum in Paris for the museum biannual fundraising event.
