Janet Jackson Was A Tom Boy; Had To Go To Etiquette School
La Toya Jackson is spilling the family secrets again to promote her new book, Starting Over. In the new book La Toya reveals that sister, Janet Jackson, was such the tom boy growing up that Katherine Jackson made Little Janet attend charm school.
“Janet’s more on the tomboyish side – I was never that way,” La Toya told Piers. “She used to really get angry when we were younger and our mother would say, ‘You have to go to etiquette school’, and she would go, ‘It’s all your fault, because of you I have to go to etiquette school – you act too much like a girl!’ She was so defiant – she did not want to go
Janet was so upset over the over going to charm school that she locked her mother
out of the car:
“I have this memory in my head about Jan. We took her to this school and my mother was driving, Jan was in the back of the Mercedes, and the minute my mother got out the car to open the door – Jan locks the door, locks my mother out, props her foot against the door and holds it like, ‘You are not going to get me out of this car!’
“She refused to go to etiquette and charm school, she didn’t want that.
