For Janet Jackson, life lately has been a mix of joy and pain, bitter and sweet.  The “Control” singer recently opened up about how she’s still healing from Michael Jackson’s shocking death and the special someone in her life who’s helping her find peace again.

“It was very difficult for me at the beginning – it was so raw,” Janet says of her brother’s death in Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. “Now, I’m able to listen to Michael’s music and watch his videos.”

Janet says the road to recovering from her great loss has been tough, but thanks to her new beau, Wissam Al Mana, she’s been having a lot of reasons to smile lately.

“We have a bond, a deep connection,” Janet gushed about her leading man who she began dating last June. “I’m getting older and I feel more settled.”

Al Mana, who was also present during the interview, expressed that the feelings are definitely mutual when it comes to his adoration for Janet.
