No One Can Do Ballads Like Janet

Certainly not the rapping granny, Madonna. Can't wait for the next album, Miss Jackson!

by Anonymousreply 108/22/2011

Too bad no one will sign her.

by Anonymousreply 208/22/2011

Everyone wants to sign Janet, hater. Labels have been hounding her for years! Janet will most likely go the indie route and give us another Velvet Rope.

by Anonymousreply 308/22/2011

r3 is delusional. The girl can't even sell out tours, and has been relegated to performing in high school gymnasiums. She ain't going independent, and no one is looking to sign her ass. If she ever records again, she'll of course make another albums worth of her masturbating over the sound of rain and thunder. *snore*

by Anonymousreply 408/22/2011

Don't be so jealous, r4! Janet is still in high demand. Her next album album will be The Velvet Rope II.

by Anonymousreply 508/22/2011

R4, Janet's current tour is actually doing very well, so stop hating. Janet is NOT performing in high school gymnasiums, she's doing intimate club settings for her fans. It's an "up close and personal" gig.

"It's an "up close and personal" gig"

Because she can't sell out the big places.

OP, I was a huge Janet fan back in the day and hoped she'd come back strong after the Velvet Rope. It's just gotten worse and worse for her. It's not going to happen. She obviously has no idea how to handler her career. At this point I think Britney has better career instincts than her.%0D %0D RIP Janet's career

by Anonymousreply 1208/22/2011

Well well well, after 30 years in the business, Ms. Janet still has the girls pressed. Only she could do that. Too bad none of your faves could EVER sell out shows at 45, ESPECIALLY in a world tour. 45 and hitting her moves and notes lke she was in her 20s. PLEASE let me know when one of your girls does this. Until then...*blasts Rhythm Nation 1814*

Love her, and this song. Can't wait to hear some new stuff.

by Anonymousreply 1708/22/2011

LOL @ r13. Oh, how I do love Janet Jackson threads!!

Janet isn't even selling out shows, shows that are in venues that can only house a few 1000 people.

My favorites? I have favorites? Madonna, Tina, Cher, all the old crones, can sell out a world tour in two seconds flat. Janet can't do that. Even her old queen choreographer said this. He said she's working her way back up.

I'm happy she left that troll, Jermaine Dupri, who helped ruin her career, but then she went and did that awful ghetto fur campaign, and showed yet again that she has no frigging idea what she's doing. I wouldn't be surprised if she never records again. She doesn't seem interested, and this "tour" that she's on, just keeps getting extended. She won't be recording any time soon, and she wants to do more films, and she's producing a film soon for Lionsgate. I think she's moved on.

About her moves, she barely does anything during these tours. She doesn't move like she used to. I don't know if it's because she's old, gained weight, or just doesn't give a shit, but she's certainly not what she once was in that department. Her pre-recorded vocals started skipping during a show two weeks ago. It was a Milli Vanilli moment.

I would love for her to do another album like "The Velvet Rope", something out of left field, but she doesn't have the balls to do it. She's in the same bubble her brother was in.

by Anonymousreply 1808/22/2011

R15: I'll give you the first 3, but Vadge, really? No babe. NOBODY is checking for Madonna anymore. Not since Brit, Gag Me, and Katy Scary have sucked dry everything she's ever done. Not to mention ruining her own popularity with that Stale Candy album plus barely releasing in the 90s.%0D %0D R18: Awww, at least one person attempts at reason. Too bad it isn't rooted in fact. Janet has sold out MULTIPLE shows on this tour. Apparently in leaving her side as a fan, you have failed to realize that. You apparently don't even care for her anymore so why make up statistics for her shows? She is NOT old, barely gained ANYTHING, and actually does care about her career unlike most of her peers. With the leak of certain unreleased tracks from her TVR era, she is bound to make a new album like that, which is my all-time favorite of hers. Ms. Janet is coming back, and the world better get ready. She's gunning for the top, and with no-one to stop her, she will bring back her Rhythm Nation and remind EVERYONE who the queen TRULY is. %0D %0D And so, Adieu.

The fact of the matter is, Janet can put 10 "flop" albums and she'll still have the respect of her PEERS and Hollywood. Madonna is, and has always been a joke. No one's here for ha!

by Anonymousreply 2108/22/2011

I always thought Janet was weak in her ballads. Very sappy and sugary - comes across like an unbalanced creepy person. The sadness isn't genuine to me. %0D %0D Say what you want about Madonna, I always find she handles ballads beautifully - even better than her dance/pop songs. There is something genuine about the sadness she relays in them. "Look of Love" from the Who's That Girl soundtrack is a beautiful underrated song.

by Anonymousreply 2208/22/2011

R22, Madonna's best ballad is Love Tried To Welcome Me off the Bedtime Story album.

Then how is Madonna breaking her own record with each tour, getting written into the Guinness books, and closing multimillion deals, even this past week? The album she's currently recording is the most buzzed about album in years, thanks to her being pitted against Lady Gaga, and her film is getting released to coincide with the Oscars by Harvey Weinstein.

I'm not sure what the rest of the drivel is about.

r21, the industry doesn't respect Janet, in fact, they have less respect for her now more than ever. She'll never be entered into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame for that reason alone.

Janet Jackson and Madonna??? Is this like Fantasy Elderly Irrelevant Diva League?

by Anonymousreply 2708/22/2011

I don't know, I think Madonna's best ballads are "Live To Tell", "Love Don't Live Here Anymore", "This Used To Be My Playground", "Oh Father", "Promise To Try", "Rain", "You'll See", "I Want You", and "Power of Goodbye".

Janet's best moment was "Again".

LOL! Some of you are so pressed that Tranet will NEVER reach Madonna's level let alone the likes of Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston. So all of the "Vadge sucks" or "Nobody cares about Vadge" is tired. Her last tour made $400 million worldwide! Janet is too busy performing in little high school gymnasiums. Madonna would never stoop that low because her brand is still a high demand.

Whoever said that Janet gets no respect is completely wrong. Yes, she was blacklisted post nipple gate, but before then, Janet has always been a media darling. In 2011, Janet is still in the media's favor. Madonna has always known as the pretentious, phony twit with a fake accent. Janet is a sweet, genuine, classy soft spoken woman. She's a class act. Most of all of Janet's albums has a cohesive, distinct sound. Her music is like fine wine and never ages. Janet is still emulated by all these new "pop" bitches.

Janet is here to stay, so you're just gonna have to find a way to deal with it.

LOL at Janet ever being the media's darling. How is she in the media's favor in 2011? By being MJ's sister?

Janet is a phony. A botch nose job, fake high pitch speaking voice mess. Sure a class act that flashes her tit at the Superbowl but won't even admit it. LOL!

Janet is here to stay in state fairs and high school gymnasiums. While Madonna is performing in stadiums around the globe like a true rock star!

Madonna charges five hundred dollars a seat, so of course she's going to have the "highest grossing tour".%0D %0D The Guiness Book of World Records listing is shady. There's plenty of proof against that.%0D %0D Speaking of shows, is Madonna going to trot out The Steven Klein video interludes and the Chrissie Hynde rock guitar segment on her next tour? Like she did in 2001, 2004 and 2007? I can't wait to here the obligatory two hits that are remixed with current songs by other artists to give the illusion of her still being relevant. And the fifty dancers doing that sloppy choreography. %0D %0D

Madonna is not very relevant in the pop world anymore but my god, Janet doesn't even have a career.
