Comparing Strokes

The first part of this Janet Jackson quote sounds a bit too much like someone who is desperate to sell some product: “As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to realize that I had a very active sexual mind at a very young age. I hope that doesn’t sound bad.”

But wait. The sales pitch stops as the interview goes on:

“My first crush was on Barry Manilow. He performed on television, and I remember taping it. When no one was around, I used to kiss the screen.”

Funny. Manilow used to do the same thing when he was watching Good Times and more to the point, Different Strokes.

Concentration is important!
