Janet Jackson- "Every Time"

Gorgeous blue-toned video shot at Therme Vals spa in the Swiss Alps. It was the last release from the acclaimed "Velvet Rope" album.

Janet was great for a long time. Great pop, dance music, R&B lite. Great videos, dancing, etc. Loved her and Madonna. Up through Velvet Rope was great. (And, Discipline was actually really good, but maybe not classic).

I never really liked her that much though, at least what I could Decipher from interviews, talks shows, award shows, etc. I don't know why. As a black gay guy, most of my black gay friends would scream at me for hating on Janet as a person.

You need new friends. She sucks.

This was one of her most pretentious videos ever. Yeah, her body looked good (if that was HER), but the shading and the colored contacts made her look like a mutant alien from a bad FOX TV scifi show. And of course, the weak-assed vocals were still there. It's the only thing she can be consistent with, the fact that she can't really sing. AutoTune is not just her friend, she has sucked its cock.

I don't think they're similar, Janbot, but let's say for a second that they are.

The difference, R36, is that when Britney did it, people liked it. Janet's video and single FLOPPED. Britney hit #1 everywhere.

If a B-list popstar's career collapses like Janet's knees already have, and no one notices, did she ever have a career at all?

by Anonymousreply 3908/11/2013

No, sweetie. The difference is that one video is an original, artistic piece that showcases the singer beautifully (that would be Janet), while the other is trashy, exploitative MTV dreck that the singer (that would be Britney) tried to be artistic on, but failed miserably in yet another attempt to Xerox something her idol, Janet, had done before her.

If you want B-list, look no further than the soon-to-be-headlining-in-Vegas, self-medicated, dead-eyed, can-no-longer-dance Ms. Spears.

Heard on TMZ that the reason Janet moved to the Middle East is that for the past 9 years or so, she's been smelling like a camel and thought it would be less obvious there. Can anyone confirm this? Or maybe she just got too old and wants to have a reason to cover her scarred face in a burqa?

Janbot, Janet's not been relevant for a decade--and that's being generous. She does no charity work, gave away her only child to her sister and is--arguably--the first wife in a harem. She's a fucking joke. She can't even keep her weight stable.

[quote]She does no charity work

Well aren't you just one big ball of stupid?

Janet does not charity work? She was just honored by amfAR earlier this year for her tireless efforts in the fight against AIDS, and she just attended their Cannes gala a few months ago, and has co-chaired the event for the past few years. She's also lent her time to UNICEF as recent as June. Her list of charitable work goes back many, many years, but those are just some of the more recent ones. If you weren't such a fucktard then you would know this.

Now go fuck yourself.

Come on Janbot, this is ridiculous and you're trying to get a rise out of people. Nobody remembers or cares about this whimpering "Again" rewrite. I bet even Janet herself has forgot about it.

The sad thing is the other dedicated Janet song threads were for my top 3 of all time, all interchangeable - When I Think of You, Pleasure Principle and That's the Way Love Goes. But a thread for this is just bizarre. I'd have been happy to speak nicely about the other three, but since you were so nasty why bother.

by Anonymousreply 4708/15/2013

Has been? Bitch, please. Janet doesn't feel the need to constantly put herself in the public eye. She never has felt the need to. She grew up famous, so fame and all the trappings of it are nothing to her. Her legacy is in every single pop star on the charts today, so "has been" isn't the correct adjective, my dear. Although she IS currently recording a new album, Janet has been doing something every pop icon from her era should take note and do themselves (Madonna in particular)--she's LIVING HER LIFE, and not trying to keep up with the Rihanna's and the Gagas of the world (although both of those girls have spoken on their admiration for Janet).

So, in closing, R47, you can take your Celebrity Bowling pins and shove them up your rotten, used-up asshole.

From the DAILY MAIL UK website:

[italic]New man, new hairstyle for slick looking Janet Jackson as she lops off her famous long locks[/italic]

Hailing from one of the world's pre-eminent musical families, Janet Jackson is used to being recognised wherever she goes.

But the singer left bystanders doing a double-take yesterday as she stepped out for lunch in London with a dramatic new hairstyle.

Janet has had her long curly locks shorn off and is now sporting a new short crop which she wore in a slicked back, gelled style.

Perhaps the change was prompted by the new man in her life, wealthy Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana.

It has not been confirmed that the pair are an item but she's certainly been doing a lot of wining and dining with the 35-year-old industrialist.

Yesterday, they were at Italian restaurant Cecconi's in Mayfair and last night they dropped in to Nobu Berkeley.

For both jaunts, the RnB star, 44, teamed her look with turned-up jeans, a black leather jacket and platform wedge heels.

Jackson split from her long-time boyfriend Jermaine Dupri last summer after a seven-year relationship.

Jackson is in London promoting her new movie Why Did I Get Married Too?

She is set to make a guest appearance to introduce the film in Brixton on Friday.

The romantic comedy is the sequel to the 2007 flick, Why Did I Get Married? and tells the story of four couples coping with various marital crises.

Janet is 5'4" in stocking feet. When the video for EVERYTIME was shot, she was in peak physical condition because it was at the tail-end of her massively successful Velvet Rope tour where she was dancing and performing nearly every night. She was muscular, toned and probably about a good 110-115 pounds, if that.

"Absurd level" is right. Let's see:

Oscar Nominee

first female singer with 5 hot 100 top 5s from one album

first female with 5 consecutive #1 albums on the Billboard charts

only artist with 7 top 5 hits from one album

artist with the most Billboard Award wins

only singer, male or female, to have been nominated in the Dance, Rap, Pop, R&B and Rock categories at the Grammys, which shows scope and versatility of her music ("worthless" my ass)

record for the most successful debut tour of any artist male or female, selling out in 3 continents (USA, Europe, Asia)--a record she still holds

fastest sellout of the Tokyo Dome, also a record she still holds

first female to debut an album at #1 during the SoundScan era

signed two of the biggest record deals in history in the '90s

second only to Aretha Franklin as the female performer with the most R&B #1s (she also has more than her brother Michael)

her first 3 films debuted at #1 at the US box office

NY Times #1 Bestselling author

multiple Grammy winner

when "Doesn't Really Matter" went to #1, she was the first artist to have a #1 Hot 100 song in the '80s, '90s and 2000s.

first female to have a Bestselling Album of the Year (RN, 1814)

Her RN Tour made her the only female to rank in the Top 5 highest grossing tours at the US box office in 1990

First female recording artist of color to be nominated for a Producer Of The Year Grammy.

First black artist to be awarded GLAAD's Vanguard Award

First female artist to debut in the Top 10 on the Hot 100 (1995's "Runaway")

First female artist to debut in the Top 5 on the Hot 100 ("Scream" duet with Michael)

The live HBO broadcast of her Velvet Rope Tour garnered a total of 15 million viewers, outperforming ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX in HBO homes, in addition to 13 Emmy nominations including one win

With the release of only two studio albums (three including compilation –Design of the Decade) in the 1990s, Janet was named by Billboard as the second biggest/most successful artist of the decade, surpassing such artists as Whitney Houston, Garth Brooks, En Vogue, Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Boyz II Men and only second to Mariah Carey.

Janet Jackson was worth hundreds of millions of dollars before her marriage, darling. Bankruptcy? Where the hell did you pull that one out of? Your ass would be my guess. Or you're thinking of Toni Braxton. When have you ever heard of Janet Jackson ever having money issues? She's not a druggie, not a gambler, and has always had tight reigns over her expenses. The only bankrupt one is YOU--of common fucking sense.
