Jackson Regrets Not Saying Goodbye To Aids Sufferer
JANET JACKSON still regrets missing out on saying goodbye to a dear friend who lost his life to AIDS.
The pop star and gay rights advocate admits she still hurts every time she remembers former make-up artist Jose - because she didn't get the opportunity to tell him what he meant to her before he died.
The singer says, "I lost a lot of friends to AIDS and one who I absolutely adored so much. His name was Jose, and we worked a lot together in Europe.
"He would put these eyelashes on me that he would make from real hair. His sister would cut her hair so he could make these eyelashes. They were the most beautiful things. He was so much fun to be with.
"I had heard he was sick and he was passing, and it was just so sad. I didn't have the opportunity to (talk to him before he died). That part really hurts, when you're trying to reach someone before (they die)."
