Her weight has fluctuated over the years, but Janet Jackson is back on form. The 55-year-old showed off her slimmed-down figure while holidaying with her new boyfriend ,Wearing a shimmering gold string bikini, the singer cooled off in pool as she relaxed in the Mediterranean sun.



She was joined by her latest love, Wissam Al Mana, who is a millionaire businessman from Qatar.Jackson began dating Wissam, who is nine years her junior, earlier this year following her split from Jermaine Dupri after seven years together.



The star is currently writing True You, a self-help book with exercise and diet tips. She recently admitted to struggling for years with her weight and body image. ‘I wanted to write this book because I wanted kids to have something to read and know that that they are beautiful as they are,’ she told Essence magazine this month. It took me a good minute to get here.



It really did. But I love my life. I only wish I had this confidence when I was younger.’ She says that she was made to feel embarrassed about her developing body during her time on Good Times, a U.S. series.



‘When I was doing Good Times they wanted me to bind my chest,’ she says. ‘I started developing at a young age. They didn’t tell me that they were going to do this.



Happier than ever: The singer looked in good spirits on the trip

‘They just did it as I was getting dressed for the first show. ‘So under the little sweatshirt, that Band-Aid is wrapped around my chest to make me look flatter. That plays tricks here [she points to her head].



‘You’rean innocent kid and you immediately start thinking how you look naturally isn’t good enough. It really affected me, up until now.’



While Jackson is now happier than ever, not everyone is quite so pleased with her. The animal rights organisation PETA lashed out at the singer earlier this month over her decision to become the new face of fur firm, BlackGlama.



PETA spokeswoman, Amanda Schinke released a statement saying: ‘We didn’t think Janet was this desperate.’ The spokeswoman went on, adding ‘surely she knows enough about suffering and unjustified death to recognise that both occur in the production of a fur coat.



‘We are asking her to think again and to donate these stolen skins to be used as bedding for animals orphaned by other human-caused disasters, such as loss of habitat.’
