Janet Jackson: daddy’s girl?

The Associated Press reports that singer Janet Jackson told ABC’s Diane Sawyer–in an interview to air on PrimeTime Thursday–that she has forgiven her father, Joseph Jackson, for years of torment that she said she endured throughout her strict upbringing. “A lot of things that he did, really, was to make a better way for us,” she told Sawyer. “And he did it the best way he knew how. It’s the way — unfortunately, but that’s the way it was — the best way he knew how.”
