Janet JacksonIn an ABC news exclusive, Janet Jackson will grant Robin Roberts and ABC News cameras admission to her Malibu home for the first time ever. The introverted Jackson sister will, no doubt, speak about the death of her brother, as she and Michael were said to be very close.

Though Roberts has snagged the first sit down televised interview with Jackson since her brother's tragic death, it will not be the star's first public comments on the subject. At the 2009 BET Awards, Jackson called her brother an icon and thanked the public for their support.

She also gave an exclusive print interview to Harper's Bazaar, in which she revealed that she had learned of her brother's death while on the set of 'Why I Got Married Too.' In addition, Miss Jackson anchored the MTV Video Music Awards with a performance of 'Scream,' a heartfelt tribute to Michael.Janet JacksonIn an ABC news exclusive, Janet Jackson will grant Robin Roberts and ABC News cameras admission to her Malibu home for the first time ever.
