Word is, there are multiple inspirations behind Janet Jackson dramatic weight loss. Now that she is a spokesperson for Nutrisystem, Janet Jackson has been flaunting her new fit figure. However, there are whispers that Janet was also motivated to lose the weight because she plans to tie the knot with her billionaire boyfriend.

Until that rumor is confirmed, check out Janet’s interview with US Magazine where she dishes details on how she lost the weight!
