“When Mother picked Michael’s shoes one day, she noticed gaping soles in the holes and brought him a new pair. He refused to wear them. I had to plead with him to discard the old shoes and, really tempting fate, to change his socks. Forget about it. “La Toya, these things are not important”, he said. “Why do people care about clothes? Music is what’s important to me, how it sounds, that I get it right. And why do we care about having new shoes? What about the man who has no shoes? Or the man who has no feet?… These are great shoes […] and I’m going to keep wearing them.” … At home, it was back to wrinkled jeans and old sweaters…”

“I’ve studied the best. Michael Jackson, who was just down the hall. I’m not saying that because he’s my brother. I really feel he is the best. I saw how hard he works, his ambition. It’s so strange to read things about him because people just don’t understand Michael much.”  Janet Jackson
