Janet Jackson opened up about her struggle to find happiness, saying she found contentment after becoming a mother.

In a candid letter for ‘Essence’ magazine, the pop star said she had suffered low self-esteem and “intense” depression throughout her life.

The 52-year-old thanked God and her infant son for helping her find peace.


“The height of happiness is holding my baby son in my arms and hearing him coo, or when I look into his smiling eyes and watch him respond to my tenderness,” she wrote of one-year-old Eissa Al Mana.
