Janet Jackson is gearing up to write a book about her use of yo-yo dieting and her struggle to maintain a healthy weight.
Jackson, 41, was on hand at the premier of Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married?" and revealed to PEOPLE Magazine that she plans to write this book from the heart and hopefully help people that struggle with the same problems.
"I'm really coming from the soul with it, and what I was going through at different times in my life and what possibly brought it about for myself," said the five-time Grammy winning artist.
Jackson received harsh criticism from the tabloids after putting on 60 lbs. last year and was labeled one of the biggest celebrity yo-yo dieters because of her ever-fluctuating scale readings.
One of the things that might be helping Jackson stay motivated are the possible wedding bell rumors circulated around Hollywood regarding her relationship with 34-year-old record producer Jermaine Dupri. Although Jackson is tight lipped about the rumors she does admit she is optimistic about their future.
"I've done it twice before and divorces twice, and the next time I do it - if I do it- I really don't plan on divorcing," she said, "Oh, I pray this doesn't bite me in the butt... saying this. But they say the third time is a charm."
