Ever wondered what some celebrities are really like? Well, sometimes they allow us mere mortals a look into their private lives through some great documentaries. Indeed, some of the best docs ever made have been about the truth behind the fame of a celebrity, and the ones in this gallery are no exception.

The story behind the scenes of Janet Jackson's life is finally getting the documentary treatment it deserves as Lifetime and A&E are set to release a two-part documentary called 'Janet' in January in celebration of the 40th anniversary of her debut album. 

In a recently released extended trailer, the singer addresses the child sexual abuse allegations made against her brother Michael Jackson, which he'd denied, and which she rarely ever commented on. "There's a great deal of scrutiny that comes with having that last name," Janet says alongside footage of her and Michael leaving a courthouse during his 2005 child molestation trial. Janet is then asked if the allegations affected her career, to which she responds yes. "Guilty by association. I guess that's what they call it, right?"

Janet will also be addressing the infamous 2004 Super Bowl "Nipplegate" incident with Justin Timberlake in the upcoming doc, a scandal which has come under more intense scrutiny this year following heightened attention towards how the media has treated stars like Janet and Britney Spears while people like Justin Timberlake continued on scot-free. 

From Amy Winehouse to Alexander McQueen,  these documentaries will make you laugh, cry, and have a more intimate picture of the celebs you love. Click on through to get to know them better!
