Coinciding with the release of her new two-disc CD, “Number Ones,” singer Janet Jackson is opening up for the first time about the death of her brother Michael with Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts.
Roberts sat down with the youngest member of the Jackson family in Jackson’s Malibu beachfront home in an exclusive interview where Jackson spoke candidly about her close relationship with Michael, the family’s knowledge of his issues with prescription drugs (and intervention attempts), and the impact his passing has had on her life. She speaks out on Dr. Conrad Murray, the man she considers responsible for Michael’s untimely death, and also answers questions about her personal life and previous relationships.

During the primetime special Jackson will also debut the video for her new single, “Make Me,” the only song from the album recorded after Michael’s death. Read excerpts from the interview here.
Look for Jackson to kick off the 37th Annual American Music Awards on November 22 in a highly anticipated 8-minute opening performance.
