oprah-winfrey-that-grape-juice-2016-1910100

Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature carved out to celebrate TV and Film’s glorious past.

This week, as today’s generation of stars struggle to find conversational platforms to promote themselves and their material, we return to 1997 to revisit one of Janet Jackson‘s conversations with Oprah Winfrey on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show.’

Originally set up to discuss her project ‘The Velvet Rope’, the ladies’ interview soon saw them dig deep into Jackson’s personal struggles and insecurities.

One of them being her feeling that she was undeserving of the fame her older brother Michael had generated for her with his own Pop career.

By the end, Winfrey and her audience taught the then 31-year-old entertainer a life lesson we’re sure has remained with her since.
