NEW YORK -- Janet Jackson seems split between voting for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, telling Agence France-Presse in an interview she is excited by both of the leading Democrats in the race for the US presidency.
"They're both really exciting. That's difficult for someone like me, having someone African-American and also having a woman," said Jackson, the youngest sister of Michael Jackson and a US pop icon in her own right.
Asked if she would be following another prominent US black figure, talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, in endorsing Obama or if she was excited by the prospect of the first black US president, she said "of course that would be exciting."
"But it would also be exciting to have a woman in office as well," she added. "That's why we should have two presidents."
