“Well, being on the show, being overweight, having mirrors in my house because on Idol, different than any other show, I think it's the greatest music game show ever, because we were really real with contestants,” the musician explained.

“If you said to a contestant, you may need to drop some weight because you're trying to build stars, you've got to work on your image, and they would look at me. If I said, 'I didn't like their singing.' They all go, 'Randy, you're fat. You're overweight too.' I go, 'I have mirrors in my house. I know this.'"

Jackson continued, “I think that and also one up in the emergency room with blood sugar over 500 and my doctor saying to me, 'There's no cure, but you can manage it.' You just go, 'Okay. Now, what are you going to do doc?' You've got a choice. What's going to happen here? I had to really get it together."
