Losing a family member can never be easy. And it's especially difficult when he's one of the most famous people to have ever lived. You're constantly reminded of him, you see his name in billboards and you're listening to his voice on the radio. So it comes as no surprise that Janet Jackson is still struggling with the loss of her brother Michael Jackson.
Michael passed away in June, but Janet said she just came to the realization that he was gone very recently when she was about to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards in September.
Janet said: “It hit me before I was about to do the performance, and it hit me when we were in rehearsal. There was a huge image of him on this screen, and I started to cry. I had to step away.”
She added: “You know, a day doesn’t go by where you don’t think about him. It’s always there, in every sense. But it will get better. It’s not easy, but I know with time it will get easier. But it will never be easy. It’s my brother.”
We're sure a lot of fans feel the same way. Michael was loved by so many, he won't be forgotten anytime soon--if ever.
