Janet Jackson has spoken out in support of her late brother, Michael Jackson in a new interview.

Speaking to 'The Sunday Times' in an interview published this weekend, Janet, who has been quiet about the recent allegations against her brother made in the HBO documentary, 'Leaving Neverland,' gushed about her big brother's legacy.

"[His legacy] will continue. I love it when I see kids emulating him when adults still listen to his music. It just lets you know the impact that my family has had on the world. I hope I'm not sounding arrogant in any way. I'm just stating what is. It's really all God's doing, and I'm just thankful for that," she told the newspaper.

She also revealed that a career in music was the only option given to her by her strict father, Joe Jackson. The one-track guidance is something she is thankful for to this day.

"When parents see something in their children, I guess they guide them in that direction. Especially when you're talking about children who grew up in that urban area. Music was a way to keep us off the streets. My father saw a way out for his children. A better life. And thank God for that."
