'Tennessee' was originally written for Janet Jackson — she was the first person I had in mind. I said, 'Janet, I don’t want to work with you if you don’t put on weight. I want you fat in this.' She put on all this weight for me. We were trying to raise the money and she was fat and she was like, 'Lee! Lee!' [laughs] I didn’t realize how catastrophic it was until I’m looking at 'Oprah' one day and she had gained all this weight for a movie that never happened. Oprah said, 'Were you pissed?' She was a really good sport about it, but it was borderlining on obese. Finally she said, 'Lee, I have a record to drop. I have to look good. This is insanity. This movie’s never going to happen.' Then as soon as she bailed, we got the money.

This was at that Sports Classic thing that was hilarious. I think Jackie ended up winning a lot of the events.
