Jackson Family Drama: Police Called After 'Altercation'

Originally posted 07/24/2012 12:55PM

Just days after matriarch Katherine Jackson was reported missing – and then located in Arizona – the Jackson family seems to be facing more drama after police were called to the family home on Monday.

The L.A. Sheriff's department responded to a family disturbance call at Katherine's home on Monday afternoon after Janet, Randy and Jermaine Jackson reportedly tried to take Michael Jackson's children Prince, Paris and Blanket from the compound.

"Deputies determined that a physical altercation had occurred of misdemeanor battery," said L.A. Sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore. "It involved members of the Jackson family. A report was taken. No arrests were made, and the investigation is ongoing."

Whitmore confirmed that the altercation involved "two people," although he did not specify which two. He did add, "If we thought an arrest should have been made, we would have made it."

Janet Jackson Says She Doesn't Weigh Herself

Originally posted 05/16/2012 02:15PM

After years of yo-yo dieting, Janet Jackson is finally at the size she wants to be. Just don't ask her how many pounds she's dropped.

"I don't know how much weight I've lost, only because I stay away from the scale," Jackson told PEOPLE at Marco Glavianos "Supermodels" exhibit in New York recently.

"I don't think [stepping on the scale] is healthy. You're setting yourself up to fail and women's bodies fluctuate every month – certain time of the month in particular – we bloat a great deal," she says.

Janet Jackson knows what it's like to lose a loved one, and now she's offering some advice to Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina on how to deal with the grief over her mother's death.

"You have to come to terms at some point. You have to actually give it up to God," says Jackson, who still mourns the loss of her brother, Michael Jackson. "It sounds so mean, but you have to move on. You can't hold onto that because it can be very devastating."

Jackson, who spoke to Anderson Cooper for an interview airing Monday on his talk show, adds, "Sometimes therapy is the best thing."

Rubber! Semi-Naked Men! Watch the New Lady Gaga Video

Originally posted 06/08/2010 04:15PM



Topless men, a rubber-clad nun, androgyny, seductive dance moves and a pierced human heart? It's all part of a new music video that could only belong to Lady Gaga.

Directed by fashion photographer Steven Klein, the nearly 9-minute long video for the singer's current single, "Alejandro," premiered Tuesday, featuring Gaga with a new cropped cut in a sequence of black-and-white images resembling both Madonna's "Vogue," "Express Yourself" and Janet Jackson's "Rhythm Nation."

But there's also signature Gaga touches as well. From the circular goggles to the black veil she dons as a grieving lover, the singer, 24, who told Larry King the video has a "homoerotic military theme," even goes topless towards the end of the video.

Janet Jackson says film director Tyler Perry was a major source of support when her brother Michael died unexpectedly last June – repeatedly checking on her and even halting work on the movie they were making together.

"He actually stopped production and was there for me," Jackson, 43, told PEOPLE on Monday at the New York premiere of Perry's new film, Why Did I Get Married Too? "[He was] constantly calling me, making sure I was OK, making sure that there wasn't anything that I needed or my family needed."

He is "such a sweetheart," she added, "so giving and so loving."
