JANET JACKSON

"I couldn't believe it. Immediately I started shaking [when I heard the news] … She was known as the voice. When she would open her mouth and this instrument would come out, you would obviously understand why. She was such a sweet sweet soul. Especially back in early '80s and early '90s is when I connected with Whitney the most. It doesn't matter if we were doing an awards show. We would always take the time out to find one another."
