Janet Jackson is still struggling to come to terms with the death of her brother MICHAEL and refuses to listen to his music, nine months after the King of Pop's tragic passing.
The R&B superstar was left devastated when her beloved brother suffered a fatal cardiac arrest last June (09) and she subsequently shunned all media coverage in a bid to grieve in peace.
And the singer/actress confesses she has been avoiding all of Michael's songs because it's too painful to hear his voice or see his face in photos.
She tells People magazine, "I couldn't listen to my brother's music. That's still hard for me to do. Or to see a picture."
