Washington, Feb 10 : American singer Janet Jackson has revealed that she was "sweating bullets" when watching Prince live with her religious mother.

Janet was just a teenager when she begged her mother Katherine, who was a devout Jehovah's Witness, for tickets to see her hero perform.

Though her mother agreed, she insisted on accompanying Janet to the show.

"Being a Jehovah's Witness, you grow up in a very religious world. But, as a kid, I loved Prince and The Time - one of my favourite groups. I would listen to them all the time, even though you're not supposed to do that," Contactmusic quoted Janet, as telling Parade.com.

"When I was 16, I was promoting my first album and I went with Mother to see The Time's concert with Prince," she added.

The singer revealed that she got so uncomfortable sitting next to her God-fearing mother during the sexy star's performance, that she had to switch seats to be able to enjoy the show.

"I did not want to sit next to Mother because I knew they were dirty. I was trying to be cool and calm, but oh my God, I was sweating bullets: She's going to think, Good Lord, what is my baby into? She really needs more of God in her life! Where did I go wrong?' I could just hear Mother blaming herself for everything!" she said.

"Luckily, I got someone else to swap seats with me so I was able to enjoy the show," she added.
