"I almost committed suicide" - Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson added, she was deprived of almost everything in life, as she couldn't listen to music, drive a car, wear designers clothes

Late Micheal Jackson's sister, Janet Jackson and wife to Quatari Muslim Billionaire, Wissam Al Mana has revealed in a recent interview with MTV News that she almost committed suicide because of the restrictions and burdens her new life and religion brought upon her, she said it wasn't an easy transition at all.

Janet added, she was deprived of almost everything in life, as she couldn't listen to music, drive a car, wear designers clothes only the Black Abaya and she couldn't even move outside her residential home in Doha and was always surrounded by heavily armed security men.

She said her new song featuring J.Cole "No Sleep" says it all; from her marriage, to the difficulties involved in adapting to her new life, the stress involved in being a muslim wife and the regrets she had due to the choices she made.

Janet Jackson was honoured with the inaugural Ultimate Icon Music Dance Visual Award at the 2015 BET Awards in Los Angeles

If she'd converted to Judaism, all she'd have to give up would be pork and shrimp.

R2 Not if her husband was Orthodox. Stop acting like all religions don't have their extremists. Many Seven Day Adventists believe that women can't wear pants.

R2 I should clarify that I meant that she'd be giving up a lot more than pork and shrimp if she married someone who is Orthodox.

Oh, Miss Janet. Was the $$$$$$$ too much to pass up that you sacrificed your freedom for life as a Muslim woman? Silly girl.

by Anonymousreply 508/12/2015

So is the marriage over now? Hard to imagine her talking like that if she gets back to being a muslim wife, especially since she's so well-known around the world.

I'm not quite understanding the designer clothes part. To my knowledge rich muslim wives are one of the biggest buyers of haute couture. For some reason I doubt her husband is a super hardcore muslim who'd stop her from wearing haute couture. I mean after all he married a singer known for her use of sexual imagery and hanging around with her tits out.

If she couldn't listen to music that's beyond hardcore. Meaning almost all Muslims listen to music. Seriously, why would such a guy want to own Janet Jackson, what's the point? Fucking weird.

The ratio of Islamic freaks to Orthodox Jews is about a million to one, and Orthodox Jews don't perpetuate violence on a mass scale like anything seen in the Islamic world, but thanks for the false equivalence.

Ms Jackson is very, very dumb. I am a woman (ugh, I know) and am aware from experience that even in the so-called mild Islamic countries like Turkey and Tunisia you really feel the restrictions on everyday mobility. In a militarized Gulf State it was gonna be ten times worse. She should stay out of there. It isn't fun.

Yes, R18, all religions do look down on women. But it's much, much easier to live with some religions as a woman than others, for those of us who actually inhabit the real world. You are better off as a woman with Western religion and culture if you are interested in education, mobility, labor force participation, and -- gasp -- walking out of doors at night showing your legs. Or God forbid living by yourself. Not counting the Mormons, Mennonites or other tiny minorities here, sorry. Just choosing innocuous old American/French/German Christianity over Saudi or Qatari bullshit.

Ms Jackson's experience is living proof of the difference.

The true Janet Jackson came out when she and some of her family took their mother "on vacation," then raided the Jackson compound and she was caught was screaming at poor Paris. I was so proud of Paris. She did the only thing a teenager could do to find her grandmother. She demanded to see her grandmother on Facebook and Twitter-she told the world! That took brass balls.

by Anonymousreply 6208/13/2015

R62, you really see Mama Jackson being innocent grandma type? Who knows what kind of mom she was to all those kids. People have many times wondered what went on in their house when Michael was a kid.

I'm not defending Janet Jackson that much but I vaguely remember the screaming thing and I don't remember thinking she's a superbaddie. Sometimes you need to raise your voice with teens. I'm just saying that she might've had a good reason for that. Or not. I had many screaming matches with my mom when I was a teen but that didn't mean we hated each other.

Henderson is a really nice suburb south of Las Vegas. It's like the Encino of Las Vegas. Most of it is new, there's beautiful new hotels, parks, malls and landscaping everywhere. The bottom did fall out during the recession, but it's coming back finally. If she hired people to go in and do weekly maintenance, which people often do, or if they're in a HOA where the landscaping is covered, she should be fine.

So did she leave her husband? That sounds like the kind of thing you can't say in public about your Muslim Fundie husband unless you want to get beat to death. And how can you record an album when you're not allowed to listen to music? Makes no sense, unless she's planning to never go back.

Once you convert to Islam you're Muslim for life. There is no going back, they don't recognize it. If her husband is that religious, his pals are probably watching everything she does. She's very high profile. If she's seen as not obeying the rules about modesty, they could kill her. She made a huge mistake in marrying someone that extremely religious. She will never be able to go out in public dressed like she used to.

From the website Islam Question and Answer:

20327: Why is the apostate to be executed in Islam?

[al-Nisa’ 4:59]

And the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) has commanded us to execute the apostate as in the hadeeth quoted above: “Whoever changes his religion, execute him.”

It may need some time for you to be convinced about this matter, and for you to think about it. Perhaps you think that if a person follows the truth and enters into it and embraces the one true religion which Allaah has enjoined, then we allow him to leave it quite easily whenever he wants and to utter the words of kufr (disbelief) that put him outside of Islam, so he can reject Allaah, His Messenger, His Books and His religion, and there is no punishment as deterrent, how will that affect him and others who enter the religion?

Do you not see that this would make the one true religion, that everyone should follow, like a shop or store which a person can enter when he wants and leave when he wants, and it may encourage others to forsake the truth.

Moreover, this is not someone who has never known the truth and practiced it and worshipped in accordance with it; rather this is a person who has known the truth, and practiced the religion and done the rituals of worship, so the punishment is no greater than he deserves. Moreover, such strong rulings as this are only applied to such a person whose life is no longer considered to be useful, because he knew the truth and followed the religion, then he left it and forsook it. What soul can be more evil than the soul of such a person?
