London, July 12 (ANI): Janet Jackson has said that she is happier with her body now than she was three decades ago.

In the latest issue of Essence, the singer said that she was made to feel embarrassed about her developing body during her time on U.S. TV series 'Good Times'.rom the age of 11 to 13 Jackson played Penny Woods in the Seventies black sitcom series.

'When I was doing 'Good Times' they wanted me to bind my chest. I started developing at a young age. They didn't tell me that they were going to do this," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

"They just did it as I was getting dressed for the first show. So under the little sweatshirt, that Band-Aid is wrapped around my chest to make me look flatter. That plays tricks here [she points to her head].

"You're an innocent kid and you immediately start thinking how you look naturally isn't good enough. It really affected me, up until now," she added.ackson, who appears on the front cover of the magazine, said she had now changed her attitude.

"There comes a time when you don't give an F what people say or think. You just do your thing because it's finally about you and not in a selfish way but in a great way," she said. (ANI)
