Despite giving birth at age 50 in February 2017, Janet Jackson now looks the slimmest and most fit she has in her adult life, as her recent concert festival appearances attested. Now 52 years old, she's got a personal trainer, Paulette Sybliss, who she adores. Sybliss has listened to Janet's likes and cravings and helped her design an eating strategy that she enjoys and can maintain.
"She's incredible," she told E! "And she never made me feel like I have to deprive myself of anything. She would say, 'What do you like? OK, I'm going to put that in. What do you enjoy? OK, I'm going to put that in.'"
Those conversations led to a meatless diet that occasionally includes fish. "I love catfish," she told E!. "I love a fried fish. But I'm also crazy about grilled fish."
Junk food doesn't figure heavily into Janet's picture; she told hosts on Atlanta's 96.7 The Beat last week that she had never heard of Hot Cheetos in a clip that went viral.
But if there's one item that causes her to lose control, so to speak, it's a certain candy bar.
"I love Snickers," she shared with E! Fair enough — she's only human. But she also revealed that it took her entire lifetime to get with some sweets that most kids grow up on.
"There were a lot of sweets that I have only tried as an adult," she says. "Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Is that the little round one? I just tried that last year for the first time. It's very good. I finally tried a KitKat a couple of years ago."
