The singer, 53, explained how she likes to let children mimic the eyes of her deceased brother and noted that his music is regularly listened to 10 years after his death.

She said The Sunday Times Magazine: & # 39; It will continue. I love it when I see children following him, when adults are still listening to his music. It just lets you know the impact that my family has had on the world. & # 39;

Janet also told how growing up in the spotlight meant that she was missing out on a lot of things that children do because they & # 39; busy at work & # 39; used to be.

She said: & # 39; I wanted to do gymnastics, but that couldn't happen because I was busy working. But at least I had my brothers and sisters. They were my best friends. & # 39;

The youngest of 10 children, the older brothers of Janet, started performing in the Jackson 5 when she was young and later she appeared on the variety show The Jacksons when she was 10.

The hit maker also gave her her opinion about the Me Too movement and said she believes there are still many & # 39; double standards & # 39; are for women.

She said: I am sick, I have been beaten back, I am furious about the double standards that women continue to treat as second-class citizens. Enough. & # 39;

In the interview, Janet explained how her path to musical stardom was ready for her when she came home from school one day at the age of 13 and heard her family listen to a song she had written and recorded.

Although she thought she was going to study corporate law at school, her father Joseph told her she would become a singer and said God had a different path for her.

Janet's comments about her brother come after the release of the documentary Leaving Neverland, which was released earlier this year.

The film focuses on two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who claim that they were sexually abused by Michael Jackson when they were children.

Michael, who died in 2009 at the age of 50, was first accused of mistreatment in 1993 and later tried in 2005 and acquitted of further allegations of child abuse.

Mr. Safechuck was 10 years old when he met Michael in 1986 on the set of a Pepsi ad.

He claims that the singer, who denied allegations of sexual abuse of children all his life, showered him with gifts while taking care of both him and his family.

Robson was five when he first met Michael after winning a dance competition in Brisbane. He claims the same abuse.

Before Leaving Neverland premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, the Jackson estate issued a statement condemning the film and saying it was a & ltriber production in an excessive and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in Michael Jackson & # 39;

Michael & # 39; s cousin Taj Jackson has also criticized the film, which he & # 39; one-sided & # 39; called.

He told NME: & # 39; I say that my uncle has already gone through the system and that my uncle has already been declared guilty.

& # 39; My uncle has already had a 10-year FBI investigation. It is so unfair to now condemn him for a one-sided documentary, literally one-sided. & # 39;
