*Janet Jackson says she’s determined to attend Dr. Conrad Murray’s upcoming involuntary manslaughter trial, because she wants to “see justice” served for the death of her brother Michael.
The singer made her intentions known to “Today’s” Meredith Viera this morning in a clip from a longer interview to air this Sunday on “Dateline.”
Janet also expressed that she always wanted to look like her older sister Rebbie, and that her father’s insistence that his children refer to him as “Joseph” and not “Dad” continues to have a sobering effect on her.
As for Murray’s trial, Janet says she will be front and center in the Los Angeles courtroom with other members of her famous family to witness the proceedings.
“It’s tough sitting in the courtroom,” she told the “Today” show’s Meredith Vieira. “(But) it’s my brother, it’s my blood, he’s no longer here because of X, Y and Z. I think it’s important to every family who’s lost someone (to attend court). You want to see justice.”

Meanwhile, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” broadcast from Chicago this morning with a visit from Oprah Winfrey.
The talk show host spoke about her continued support of President Obama, the challenges of running her new cable channel OWN and much more.
