Janet Jackson visited “Good Morning America” today to announce some exciting news: she’s now the face of Nutrisystem.

When asked why she believes in this weight loss brand, she said, “It’s about keeping it off — that maintenance. They have a program for that. My success plan is to be healthy and feel good about me. All of us, we have that one pair of jeans that we have a relationship with.”

But for Jackson, it’s more than just looking great on stage and rockin’ a two piece bikini on the beach — it’s about helping others lift their self-esteem, something she didn’t have growing up. “We always find something wrong with us, somewhere. If it’s not our arms, it’s our thighs. So I could very easily pick myself apart and that’s what I would do, that’s what I did.”

Since conquering her weight and building her self-esteem, life is better for Jackson — it’s evident every time we get a glance at her on her world tour or we snag a paparazzi shot of her with boyfriend Wissam Al Mana. She tells GMA, “I am able to look in the mirror. I couldn’t do that before. I’m very grateful to be able to do what I love most, what I really feel I was here to do, and that’s to help others.”
