Janet Jackson doc “Janet” releases trailer

Janet Jackson is ready to tell her story in the trailer for her forthcoming Lifetime documentary, LA Times reports.

The paper says released New Year’s Day, the compelling preview for Janet samples clips from a tell-all interview with the famously private recording artist and teases segments addressing sexual assault allegations against her brother, Michael Jackson, as well as the fallout from her 2004 Super Bowl performance.

According to the report, when asked why she agreed to participate in the film, Janet Jackson says in the trailer: “It’s just something that needs to be done.”

Executive produced by the “Together Again” hitmaker herself and her brother Randy Jackson, the two-part documentary also features interviews with a number of the singer’s entertainment industry peers and admirers, including Missy Elliott, Whoopi Goldberg, Mariah Carey, Regina King, Tyler Perry, Samuel L. Jackson, Janelle Monáe and Paula Abdul.
