When Zidane won the Champions League things were not going so well in the Liga and in the end there are always criticisms. And more in Madrid. “It is clear that this team has won a lot and has been reinforced. Now he’s having a bad time with injuries, but he’s a coach with three Champions Leagues and great players. He will be in the fight.”On Mourinho, he added: “He is waiting. This is new to him.”Asked if Mourinho could return, Karanka added: “We are in September and there is a world ahead. Zidane has won three European Cups and some credit must be given.” last_img read more

Janet Jackson Pens Letter From My Heart Her Intimate Message To Black

first_imgIn an ESSENCE cover story exclusive, music icon Janet Jackson pens a deeply intimate message to Black women for the magazine’s first-ever “Happiness” issue.Janet Jackson ESSENCE coverIn Letter From My Heart, the artist reveals herself like never before — connecting with the audience as she shares her personal journey to finding joy and happiness in her life.In the essay, Jackson shares with her “ESSENCE Sistas” some of the lessons she learned from her childhood to adulthood—including her early struggles with depression, low self-esteem and failed relationships to her eventual growth as an artist, discovery of peace and learning to “fully embrace God’s love.” She shares: In Her Childhood: “I was happy when my brothers came home from performing on the road. I was happy when my mother lavished me with love. But I wasn’t happy with the way I looked…” In Her Teens: “Happiness came when people asked me to perform…but I was happiest when I was pleasing others and not myself. An older and wiser Janet might have said, ‘True happiness is knowing you’re doing the best you can…’” In Her Thirties: “These were difficult years, when I struggled with depression. The struggle was intense. I could analyze the source of my depression forever. Low self-esteem might be rooted in childhood feelings of inferiority. It could relate to failing to meet impossibly high standards. And of course there are always the societal issues of racism and sexism. Put it all together and depression is a tenacious and scary condition. Thankfully, I found my way way through it…” Today, at 52: “Now the height of happiness is holding my baby son in my arms and hearing him coo, or when I look into his smiling eyes and watch him respond to my tenderness. When I kiss him. When I sing him softly to sleep. During those sacred times, happiness is everywhere. Happiness is in gratitude to God…”The gorgeous GRAMMY award-winning singer and actress, who was photographed with members of her J Tribe dancers in the background, stuns as she donned clothing and accessories from designers such as Zac Posen, Givenchy, Haider Ackermann, Azzi & Osta and more.For more on the July/August issue, which hits newsstands on June 22nd, or to purchase tickets for Janet’s upcoming ESSENCE Festival performance on Sunday, July 8th, visit ESSENCE.com.last_img read more
