(Newser) – Janet Jackson has struggled with her weight—publicly, no less—for years, which is why she wrote her upcoming self-help book, True You. She tells ABC News her body image issues began as a child actor on Good Times, when “they bound my chest because they thought my breasts were too big.

It made me feel that the way that I am, it's not good enough.” For more on the book—and her next album—click here.
