Janet Jackson Tells Niece Paris To 'Enjoy Being A Kid, Now Is Not The Time'

Janet Jackson says she's given her late brother's daughter some advice about rushing into the public eye.

"We've spoken about the fact that you're only a child once," Jackson tells Prevention magazine about her advice to 14-year-old Paris.

"I think there's a time for everything, and now is not the time. I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college -- or not -- but wait till she turns 18."

"She's a very tough, smart girl. But it's a cutthroat industry. I wouldn't want my child to do it."

Paris Jackson has said she enjoys singing and can't wait to pursue her real passion -- acting.

"I got into the business at a young age," she says. "It's not an easy thing. Your childhood, you completely lose it and I didn't get to experience that, so she has the rest of her adult life to be that actress that she wants to be, and I told her that."

A couple of years ago, Janet told ABC News of one instance in particular that made her uncomfortable with her own body for years later.

"I was actually doing 'Good Times,' and on our first day of shooting they bound my chest because they thought my breasts were too big."

"I got the part when I was 10, we started shooting when I was 11 -- I was developing early. It made me feel that the way that I am, it's not good enough."
