Janet Jackson hit up the Barnes & Noble store on 5th Avenue in New York City today (March 19) to promote her new book TRUE YOU: A Guide To Finding And Loving Yourself.

Meanwhile, Janet has opened up about both her personal and professional life in a string of new interviews as highlighted by the New York Daily News. Some highlights:

On her current tour: “I was at Radio City for a private performance last year. It was so much fun. While I was on stage, I could look out and see the faces of everyone in the audience. All I could think of was, ‘This is exactly how I wanted to do my next tour, up close and personal.’ I am excited to be back in Radio City for the public dates.”

On her childhood: “My father was never there the way I really wanted . … I wanted to be able to call him Dad. I tried it once. He said, ‘I’m Joseph to you, do not call me Dad.’ That affects you as a kid.”

On marriage: “There came a point in my life where I said, Okay, maybe this isn’t for me and I don’t need a piece of paper to validate … my love for that person. But, there’s also something to be said for that bond, that closeness that you feel that can’t be penetrated by anyone, anything.”
