Janet Jackson wanted to be a lawyer.

Janet Jackson accepts music was her calling
Janet Jackson said she wanted to be a lawyer and go to business school as she had no interest in following in her brothers footsteps. Her fame hungry father said, "no," and Janet has insisted she'd never force her son Eissa to work in the industry, if that's not what he wants to do. But I don't get how Janet would become a lawyer with a voice like THAT. I want to slap the inner bark out of her, so that she stops talking like an infant chipmunk at 53. This overly demureness is killing me softly.

Janet is also headlining Australia's RNB Fridays live tour, which kicks off tomorrow night. Check out her exclusive radio interview with Carrie & Tommy below.
