And here "professional singer" Janet Hackson is sung under the table by the lovely late Dana Plato. Has she sung live since then?

by Anonymousreply 2305/25/2013

I thought the classic Janet period was pretty good to great - Control, Rhythm Nation, Janet, Velvet Rope. All great albums, great pop.

Yes, absolutely, it's an added bonus when pop stars can actually sign, and Janet was a pretty weak singer, but whatever Jam & Lewis did to get the songs recorded such that they sounded good on record was brilliant. Rhianna can't sing either, but clearly it hasn't hurt.

Classic Janet dance routines were hot.

I try to tell people that want to argue that Janet sings "live" that, beyond the fact that she simply doesn't because of voice quality/consistency issues, it's impossible to perform a difficult, physical dance routine and sing live.

So, no hate towards Janet. Loved her back in the day. But, yeah, not a great singer.

And, Lonely is better than Come Back to Me as a Rhythm Nation ballad.

by Anonymousreply 2405/25/2013

r24 yes Jam & Lewis disguised the vocalists limitations with production tricks. But luckily they also worked with real singers such as Alexander O'Neal (Hearsay is better than any Janet album) and the Sounds of Blackness. The Human League wanted to work with them because they could take any singer and make them sound great.

r3 it's not just the whispering, it's the fact she's inaudible and has the worst diction of any singer.

It wasn't as bad in the early days but all she does is mumble and whisper incoherently. You can't make out a word the bitch is saying.

I'm shocked some of those were approved for release, especially for singles. Weak material is one thing but that also must have played a part in her downfall.

Not being able to decipher lyrics in songs is nothing new, but she takes it to extreme levels and is unintelligible, if you could actually hear her you might understand what it is she's saying.

Look at this one

by Anonymousreply 4105/25/2013

As I said at R24, i really liked her classic period material - at least on record. It was great pop. And, I loved the videos and dancing. But, I'll admit she's a very limited singer. Never saw her live.

Some advice for the Janbot. I guess it's admirable that you want to defend her, but seriously, have you been on DL long? You're not going to convince anyone of anything. Beyond perfectly legitimate criticisms of her singing, DL Janet detractors are simply going to be vicious just to get you riled up.

I give Janet a lot of credit for releasing Rhythm Nation 1812. It was a great album and remarkable for it being a concept album in a time when Pop Artists were not making concept albums. I also give her credit for tackling and bringing awareness to social issues and for using a lot of the the success of the album to do charitable work. Which again, at the time, you didn't see that often.

Does she have a great voice? No, but who says she has to? If you don't like it, don't listen. But she can (or could) write a great pop song and she was a great performer.

I admittedly haven't liked much that she's done after The Velvet Rope.

IF "Good Times" had been a motion picture, then MISS JANET JACKSON would have won the Oscar.

And THAT IS A FACT.

by Anonymousreply 5905/25/2013

It is hard to deny the fact that Janet wasn't much of a singer.

It is absolutely true that her vocal range is narrow, she always has to sing in the same key and under musical constraints, and because she lacked any formal vocal training you SEE and HEAR that she never takes a deep breath and as such, can never fully sustain vocal phrasing over two measures.

This is no professional vocal style or substance in the soft purrings of Janet Jackson's voice, and her gasping for air after a couple measures to recharge her lungs is annoying.

The dancing? Not much from what I can see. What I DO see are carefully orchestrated 4 or 5 movements after which there is a camera cut, an edit, another 4 or 5 movements, repeat for 3 minutes of a song.

When an unedited youtube of her dancing on stage during one of her concerts is seen, you can see view for yourself how carefully her videos were cut and managed because she merely runs back and forth on the stage in little hop-skippy Janet dance.

She's gone. She had her time in the hot white light but her audience moved on and forgot about her and her album sales plummeted, forcing her into early retirement by the two record labels that "let her go". It happens to the best of them: Neil Diamond, Joni Mitchell, lots of rock bands. Nothing lasts for ever. Let's just hope Janet enjoys her life in retirement and let it go.

The opposite of love isn't hate, it is indifference. The fact that Janet brings out such strong emotions in people who are, poorly, throwing shade, means that Janet occupies a prominent place in their hearts and minds.

BTW, she had points in all of her films, and unlike some other singers who tried making films, Janet's movies were successful.

So let's recap. Successful and talented on multiple levels in several different areas. She has more money than Jesus. She's beautiful and sexy and is keeping it classy. She's a goddess and you all should bow to her greatness.

I just watched a slew of performances by Miss J on YT from over the years and I see that all of them are the same and interchangeable - her Rhythm Nation dance is like Escapade dance is like Control dance and so on. She knew one thing and does it over and over again. Her look and wardrobe also pretty much runs the same line. Madonna at least has something fresh every time I see her do something. She also runs the gamut of theatre performance - she can be street, she can be modern dance, she can be sophisticate, she can be cabaret, etc, etc. She's pop theatre whereas JJ is just pop performer.

I disagree. I don't think that her dance routines from the Control album were exactly the same as in Rhythm Nation. And even if they're similar, it was all within a 2-3 year period of time. Styles and artists don't tend to change that drastically in that short a period of time.

I will say that you made me realize that I have to give her credit for making a huge jump in her maturity as an artist. I didn't realize (or forgot) that Control and Rhythm Nation were released about 3 years apart. It was a big progression from Control, showed a lot of maturity that most other artists don't have within the same time period.

Additionally, I'll give her credit for taking that leap when she didn't have to. Most other artists would have taken the easy way out and made another album exactly identical to Control, in order to match the success. Most probably expected her to do that and she didn't.

That being said, I think most of her stuff after Rhythm Nation regressed. I found that unfortunate.

by Anonymousreply 7505/26/2013

To me she just sort of plateaued. Had a good run, like a Taylor Dayne. Stayed a little past her due date, had a few good small roles in movies but never did anything really remarkable and looks like a has been compared to Jennifer Lopez who is at the top of her game, or Madonna who still sells out world tours and still can create a media frenzy wherever she goes.

Er, no. You as the troll and instigator of these threads - including OP's as his was frustration with your incessant spamming here - would know that isn't the case. We are indifferent here, you're the only one bringing her up all the time.

As stated before NO ONE here gives a shit about this 80s/90s relic except you.

Were there ONE big nostalgia thread about her, perhaps people wouldn't mind. As of NOW no one curr, she is in the past. Three flop albums in a row and you're out, coupled with a dwindling interest in her career and she's a goner. If she doesn't care about her music why should you?

Since the thread is about MUSIC (well, Janet Jackson anyway) and the context of the sentence clearly said LYRICS, I think those with even the slightest grasp of English would infer I meant Bob Dylan, who whilst also a poet works in the medium of music.

Only those with the most marginal of IQs and greatest dearth of musical knowledge could possibly have thought of the "distinction" between him and the poet. I wasn't aware that Dylan Thomas wrote song lyrics, you learn something new every day.

Janet Jackson can dance, and was the best dancer in her generation of female pop stars, hence the reason Ciara, Britney, Aaliyah, TLC, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and many other later pop divas have consistantly praised her and given proper respect.

[quote]I honestly think LaToya did a lot of singing on Janet's CDs. I think LaToya is like Toni Braxton's sister who did the heavy-lifting on all of Toni's CDs and now she's putting out her own music. Janet and LaToya have very different voices and if you listen to All Nite (Don't Stop) it sounds just like LaToya.

Well if you aren't a pure damn idiot. Janet used to do backup on LaToilet's albums in the early '80s, and both women sang the "Na Na Nas" on Michael's song "P.Y.T.", but LaToilet NEVER sang on a Janet album.

Janet sang backup with Musical Youth on LaToilet's "Heart Don't Lie"

[quote]I just watched a slew of performances by Miss J on YT from over the years and I see that all of them are the same and interchangeable - her Rhythm Nation dance is like Escapade dance is like Control dance and so on.

Um, are you blind? The Control-era choreography had a more feminine, balletic slant given that Paula Abdul created most of it. Barry Lather did the legendary Pleasure Principle routine, which was a foreshadowing of the militant, precise dance moves that came during the Rhythm Nation era--which were a far cry from the earlier Control Stuff. The janet. era became even more feminine and sexual with the stuff she co-choreographed with Tina Landon.

Another moron about to get schooled.

Had a good run like Taylor Dayne? You dumb bitch. To even put Janet in the same league as a Taylor Dayne--a woman whose own debut album (along with a slew of other women like Nia Peeples, Vanessa Williams, Pebbles, Karyn White, Paula Abdul) was only made possible due to the rousing success of "Control"--is just ludicrous. Whenever you flip on the TV and see Britney and Rihanna's personal and performing style, it's Janet's legacy that you are seeing. Whenever J-Lo has a dance breakdown in her video, or Ciara coos seductively over melodic beats, or Beyonce incorporates a militant routine in a performance, it is Janet that they are imitating.

And what the fuck is this "due date"? Janet is an icon with a slew of awards and a rack of hit albums, singles, tours and groundbreaking videos under her belt. She became a superstar in 1986 at the age of 19, and to this day is still regarded as one of the pioneers and waymakers for the Beyonces, the Britneys, the Ciaras, etc. And for you to mention her former employee Jennifer Lopez in the same breath as her is just...ugh...

R113, you are mistaken. Janet was "let go" from her two last record labels because her albums did not sell. The labels paid a fortune for her betting that they could make money off of her, it was a bad bet because she was already passé and joined Jodie Whately in the graveyard of music history.

You say she asked to get out of her label. Asked to get out of her label and remain unemployed for these past 7 years? Asked to get fired and remove herself from the music scene, from income, from fame? If that sounds reasonable to you, you truly are psychotic.

She was fired, short and simple, and NO OTHER RECORD LABEL PICKED HER UP!! This happens a lot in music, and it happened to her. On the other hand, Madonna IS STILL CREATING!

by Anonymousreply 12005/27/2013

Um, no, dumbo @ R120. Janet's landmark record signing in 1996 was for four albums. 1997's "The Velvet Rope" was her fourth consecutive #1 album, and it went multi-platinum worldwide. 2001's "All For You" gave her her biggest first-week sales ever, and was the biggest first week seller for a female at the time. "Damita Jo" and "20 YO" weren't the big sellers like the previous two albums (because of the Super Bowl blacklisting and backlash, mostly), but they still did platinum business worldwide. After those four albums, her Virgin contract was FULLFILLED. I don't know what it will take for you to comprehend this fact. Perhaps you're just willfully dumb.

As for Def Jam, well, they didn't have her best interest at heart from the beginning. They put out a different single than she wanted for the second single, stopped promo on "Discipline" and LA Reid basically treated her like crap--hence her wanting out of the deal. But, like I said, not before giving them a #1 album (her sixth in all).

As for her "removing her self from the music scene, fame, etc.", well, not everybody thrives on being famous like that skeletal mummy you mentioned named MANdonna. Janet Jackson has been famous since she was a child. She grew up in the industry, and never "needed" the attention and admiration like your Madonnas and your JLOs. It's sad that women like them, in their 40s and 50s, dress like harlots and prance around with men who are barely old enough to drink in order to stay relevant. Janet is SO above it all.

And don't worry about her income, sweetie. Janet has always had her fortune in check. She didn't make Forbes's list of the richest women in entertainment for nothing. And she's now a billionaire, so...

She's the only singer to have 7 top 5 singles from one album, and 3 #1 singles in 3 separated calendar years from the same album. Her first week sales for "All For You" were the highest ever for a female at the time. As for the Billboard Awards, well, she has more than any artist in history. Billboard IS the music industry.

Whether it's receiving an honor from GLAAD or making an "It Gets Better" video, she has been a constant friend to the gay community. She's a fucking hero.

From Janet's own Wiki page regarding the lackluster sales of her last two albums and last two labels. Note "disappointing performance" in this next paragraph:

"The album's lead single "Call on Me", a duet with rapper Nelly, peaked at number twenty-five on the Hot 100.[19] 20 Y.O. was certified platinum by the RIAA and sold 679,000 copies in the U.S. and 1.2 million worldwide.[20][126][127] Billboard magazine reported the release of 20 Y.O. satisfied Jackson's contract with Virgin Records; Jermaine Dupri, who co-produced 20 Y.O., left his position as head of urban music at Virgin following the "disappointing performance" of Jackson's album."

It is the beginning of the end of Janet's career. She is "let go" from her giant contract and has to sign with a smaller label. Her album with this label is poorly received:

"In July 2007, Jackson changed labels and signed a record contract with Island Records. Her tenth studio album, Discipline, was released in February 2008. Margeaux Watson of Entertainment Weekly remarked, "her boy-crazy lyrics—which often sound like the cheesy text messages of a lovesick adolescent—certainly lack the flavor needed to put this once-celebrated pop star back on top of critics' lists."[134] Andy Kellman of Allmusic expressed: "Janet probably won't hit that late-'80s peak again." Her single, "Feedback", peaked at number nineteen on the Hot 100.I

n September 2008, she and her record label "parted ways" through mutual agreement. In the fourteen months she was associated with Island, her record had sold 449,000 copies and did not receive RIAA certification."

********* This is how careers crater out. Low album sales, frantic search for new labels, lower sales, unfortunate reviews and then finally, banishment from the musical scene. There is no shame in this arc, it happens to nearly everyone. Everyone, of course, but Madonna and her 30 year career and billion dollars.

That's all, JANBOT

How cute, R127, that you went to Janet's Wikipedia page and researched your little heart out just to post some bits and pieces of a whole that don't pan out to what you want to disperse as truth. If anything, you seem more pressed about QUEEN BILLIONAIRE JANET with every one of your posts.

THE TRUTH

Janet Jackson did not get fired from either record company. Jermaine Dupri left Virgin Urban on his own accord. As you posted, moron, Janet's contract was FULLFILLED after 20 YO. Also, she parted ways with Def Jam because they didn't treat her properly. In nothing you posted did it say she was fired.

As for flop albums, well, you need to look at the disaster that was MDNA, because that shitty record fell so hard from the charts that it still holds the distinction of being the fastest-plummeting album in history. HAGdonna cheated to wrestle the top spot from Lionel Ritchie, but karma got her by seeing that her crappy album tanked, and tanked HARD. Janet's Discipline didn't even fall THAT fast.

by Anonymousreply 12805/28/2013

Janet was fired from 2 recording labels and never hired again. She remains, to this day, unemployed as an artist.

Jermaine Dupri was fired from Virgin immediately after the Jackson disaster because he hired Jackson, bet a fortune of the company's money on her, and received a half-million dollar Jackson album with shitty reviews----and this was YEARS before downloading songs ever existed, so it was triply bad news.

No evidence is given, naturally, as to why you feel Madonna cheated in her MDNA sales numbers. I bought a ticket to her concert and bought the CD at the same time, that is cheating? Her MDNA album was the 12th largest seller in America, 1.6 million in the world, is that bad? What did Janet sell?--100 downloads of Escapade???

If I spend a moment to search for accurate facts to rebuke your audacious claims about Janet Jackson and "THAT person is afraid and jealous of THAT person" and other 6th grade language, it is because I feel a duty to the reader to present verifiable facts against your blustery blunders.

Janet is dead and gone. No one, no one at all, gives a flying fuck about her. Enjoy your Escapade into fantasyland, Janbot.

One thing I'll never forget about Janet...someone ask, are you close to Michael and his children? She answered, "yes". Have you met Blanket? "No." At the time, Blanket was over a year old and Janet lived about two hours away.

How sick is that? Is that a close family? The Jackson family is about as fucked up as a family can get.

r133, Michael went through many periods when he completely shut out Janet and the rest of his family.

And they are both world icons of entertainment. Its not as if they actually dwell for long periods in the properties they had two hours away from each other. Michael spent years outside of the United States in the late 90s and 2000s. Sometimes he was so broke that he ended up hiding his family with wealthy foreigners that protected himself and the kids from the media.

R124. I am so confused here as a reader and sometimes commentator, with all of these accusations and recriminations and such.

First off, I think there is only 1 Janbot here, and several Madbots. I think the GagaBot fell off the chart.

R124, we understand that you have a PARADE of facts, yes FACTS, about Janet. She did well, yes she did. But it was 25 years ago, yes it was. And what I DON'T understand, is why I keep reading that Janet had the biggest--and I'm trying my memory here--the biggest first tour of any initial songstress.

What does that mean?

She went to more cities? Spent her life on the road for a year? What does it mean? I read that, and I'm confused here, that U2 or the Stones did much better only because they played more venues that year. My point is that your suggestion that Janet broke some kind of sound barrier is meaningless. She did not, it seems she merely worked her heart out for an entire year in multiple venues for that well deserved reward and acknowledgement.

She did good, Janbot, she did. Someone had to take a very expensive chance and book ALL of those venues for Janet in the belief she would fill the stadiums---and the bed paid off. She did fill them. (Continued)

by Anonymousreply 14706/01/2013

(cont)

But Janbot, time went on. Music changed. Her audience became older and maybe distracted from not only her music, but music in general, unlike you. It happens with college graduation, jobs, and family.

If you asked me who replaced Janet, I wouldn't be able to answer you because I was one of those people who graduated, became distracted from music with my profession and then my family. My life followed a natural progression.

I don't know as much about Janet as you, Janbot. I recall Escapade, and earlier than that one of her first songs the video of which had her skipping through a little village. I liked that one a lot. And when she came out with..(I have to type the lyrics here, not recalling the song title): "And when I feel you all around me baby, I'll never forget my baby. There are times when I look above, there are times when I feel you..." That song. I attached it to Ememorial of my dead partner in 2011, I loved that song so much.

But what is the point of this endless barrage of insults to Janet, Madonna and GaGa? Yes, Janet has moved on to beautiful new place in life with her new husband---and making records doesn't seem to be part of her plan anymore. She's accomplished that.

Madonna at 54? Should we begrudge the tick-tock of time? Aging is regrettable but inevitable. Our young gay friends here have already sensed that. And GaGa? Well, I have to spend more time listening to her music. She is new and I can only hum 4 songs, but I like the key changes in Telephone.

So boys and girls, elders and young studs reading this---do you think we can put all this bullshit aside?--This Janet, Madonna, GaGa thing? Maybe we need to invent a word that, when we see this shit again, can be posted. A brand new word posted as an epithet against ageism, racism,....I'm out of isms. But generally and specific to this Madonna, Janet, GaGa war we have going.

If we find a word, and post it, it will bring the level of hate down.

Honey, you can keep bagging on Madonna all you want but here's the simple truth: People still care. Yes, her album sales are not what they used to be but whatever she does, whether it's the Epix debut of her top-selling MDNA tour, the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute Benefit or simply taking a stroll in New York, the world is still watching.

As for Janet, nobody cares. As far back as 2001, her career was over and I remember she cancelled her world tour and at the time, post 9/11, said it was due to security concerns. The truth is NOBODY was buying tickets and she needed an out.

Even her last tour was totally stripped down to the bone and she was playing at small venues that frankly wreaked of desperation and even these didn't sell out.

I mean, to even mention Janet in the same breath as Madonna in laughable. They are in entirely different constellations.

Janet had a good run, didn't ride on the coat-tails of that horrific family (though nobody would have likely paid attention in the beginning had it not been for her last name, let's be honest) but it's over. It was not in her DNA to sustain her career over a lifetime. Madonna has done it, Janet has not.

As for Jennifer Lopez, she's another one that the world simply cannot get enough of. Yes, her talent is questionable but at 42 years old, she has never been more popular or looked more beautiful. I'm sure it makes Janet feel terrible that someone just 5 years younger is so incredibly HOT right now, and absolutely at the apex of her career--and it is a bigger career than Janet had ever had--while Janet remains yesterday's news and looks like a frumpy old lady.

People are watching, alright. They're watching her and shaking their heads at the decrepit 56 year old who's still dressing like a teen, who pays young gay dudes to be her "boyfriends" and whose own daughter won't even talk to her. And they're watching Janet too. She can't walk down the street in NYC without some pap taking her pic. She can't cut her hair, grow it out again or step out of a restaurant in LA without being talked about on both sides of the Atlantic or being chased by TMZ.

Bullshit. In 2001, she had the longest-running Hot 100 #1 of the year, garnered the highest first-week album sales of her career, and became the first woman to have a #1 pop hit in the 80s, 90s and 2000s. Since then, she's toured the world, penned a #1 NY Times bestselling book, starred in a few films and inked a Lionsgate film deal. As for the ALL FOR YOU tour, a lack of ticket sales wasn't the issue. They had to expand the seating in the ALOHA STADIUM to fit demand, and it sold out across the States. Her previous tour, the Velvet Rope tour, was a massive success in the UK, and the AFY tour would have been as well. Don't hate her because she was more concerned for her own safety as well as the safety of her employees than touring overseas.

[quote]I mean, to even mention Janet in the same breath as Madonna in laughable. They are in entirely different constellations.

Bitch, please. Don't act like Janet didn't DRAG Madonna through the late 80s and the better part of the 90s by her black roots. While Janet was making movies, selling out tours globally, setting music industry records, being nominated for an OSCAR and signing landmark record deals, Madonna was struggling in a post-EROTICA world, making BASIC INSTINCT-ripoff movies and being the subject of "Whatever Happened to..." articles. She was lucky Alan Parker read her 12-page handwritten letter, felt sorry for her and gave her the part in EVITA.

[quote]Madonna has done it

Done what? Become a hot-ticket novelty act who can't sell an album to save her life (AKA lauging stock)? Oh, and by the way, she looks older than her age. As for desperation, Madonna REEKS of it.

If not for American Idol, J-LO would have remained as washed up as she was a couple of years ago. She started as a Janet wannabe, became famous as a Janet wannabe and is STILL a Janet wannabe.

They grew up wanting it--NEEDING it, whereas Janet LIVED it. It kind of makes me feel bad for Madonna. After all these years, you can clearly see that she's not satisfied. She can never be "too" famous, which is pathetic, particularly given how old she is. And I emphasize "old."

Spoken like a true hater, R172.

Janet is slim, trim, gorgeous and looks ten times better than Madonna. She's a billionaire, MARRIED to a billionaire, is working on a new album, and still has just about every pop star of the new generation citing her as an influence. HAGdonna is old, gnarled, from gay boytoy to gay boytoy, has a shitty relationship with her first offspring, and is mostly known these days for being a pathetic shell of what she once was. The only thing she has going for her are those overrought tours that attract her sad elder-gay fanbase, and the last one couldn't even fill stadiums (she had to downgrade here in the Maryland/DC area from a stadium to an arena).

But I digress...I think Janet would have been a WONDERFUL mother considering how amazing she's been with Paris--slapping her last year, getting caught lying about not letting the kids speak to their grandmother, and then being part of that crew that KIDNAPPED Katherine to try to get custody of the kids taken from her.

The kid she had with that British dude probably only sees his decripit mum once a week, if that, and the two African kids she adopted (ala Angelina Jole--of course HAGdonna never has an original idea) were a mere publicity stunt.

Dear, anybody that wants a career of ANY duration would hardly be using Janet as 'the blueprint!' She had a good run, like Taylor Dayne or Michael Bolton, but was never able to have any sustainability. Her career had a very clear open and close. And it's okay. She doesn't exactly have the discipline to be Madonna and certainly doesn't have the looks or the public interest to be Jennifer Lopez. The only thing she can do at this point is be a novelty act, maybe do a one-woman show about growing up Jackson, sing a song or two (that's all her voice will allow anyway) or maybe 'record' a cd of Michael's music. Other than that, she's kind of in career free-fall.

Furthermore, the song that begat that phrase, "Nasty", went on to inspire the name of a WWF wrestling team and the title of a late '80s TV series, for which "Nasty" was the theme song...

I love how R217 talks as though he actually believes what he typed. Jennifer Fucking Lopez??? Ha! If not for Janet, Jennifer Lopez would be nowhere. It was Janet who inspired J-Ho to get into show business in the first place. Janet also gave J-Ho her first break, and is ten times prettier and more talented (Jennifer wish she possessed one iota of Janet's beauty, including her famous mega-watt smile). She's another in a long line of Janet wannabes, ala Britney, Ciara, Mya, etc.

As for MANdonna, well, even she admitted several years ago that she loved Janet's song "Feedback", and that it was in the top five songs on her iPod. We won't even go into the looks dept. when comparing Janet and Madonna, because, well, that'd just be unfair to Madonna (moreso than comparing J-Ho to her). She's never been pretty, but as she gets older she just gets more and more repulsive. It's not just the gap-toothed grin, but it's the veiny, sinewy, frail body and the sad and desperate attempt she's attempting at trying to stay not only youthful but relevant in a Lady Gaga world. Oh, and there's that fact that she has to pay gay young trade to be her fuck toys, since no decent man would want to be with her. We all know that Janet's beauty snagged her someone on a par with her own riches (a billionaire), which is the way it should be when you're a legendary pop star. In fact, Madonna should watch Janet and take notes.

And Janet, never able to have any sustainability? Bitch, are you mad? When Janet's "Control" album came out in 1986, it began a streak of #1 albums that would continue until 2001's "All For You". Her three albums following AFY would be #2, #2 and another #1. She was the only female to amass 5 consecutive #1 Billboard albums until Madonna RECENTLY tied that record. It took her years to just TIE the record. Janet was also the first female to have a Hot 100 #1 in the 80s, 90s and the 2000s.

I think it's just the same innate jealousy and insecurities that plague the shriveled old prune they worship. Madonna has had a history of being insanely jealous of any woman who dares achieve a level of great success in pop music. It started with Janet (the "Bite your tongue" remark in TRUTH OR DARE) and has gone all the way through to Lady Gaga. It's kind of sad, really. Clearly MMadonna knows her limitations, and she knows that these other women in which she heaps hate upon are more beautiful and talented than she is, hence the reason she's always attempting to cut them down, and hence the reason her flock of sheep follow suit. They're all pretty pathetic.

Not only when she was prepping it, but during the actual show itself (as well as during the lousy MDNA tour when she foolishly flashed one of her wrinkled funbags, ala Janet). However, the missing element in the outcome of HAGdonna's show was talent. The HAG nearly tripped in those ridiculous platform boots she was wearing, and she just looked pitiful prancing around on that ridiculously overblown stage with her non-dancing self, trying to keep up with younger, more relevant artists. And that stupid "Hey Mickey" rip-off song of hers just seemed even sadder when she did it at the SB. Janet's SB performance, titty slip and all, trounced the HAG's show, because Janet can actually perform and DANCE--and that's just for starters. Every SB halftime show since Janet's 2004 show is immediately compared to hers. There's a reason Billboard's recent Top 10 SB Halftime Shows list placed HAGdonna's halftime show at #8 while Janet's landed at #2...it's because Janet's WAS BETTER.

Martin Lawrence in drag? Ha! You could've done a little better than that! You're post reeks of the same desperation that permeates MANdonna's career. I mean, the misspelling and double words and all...

Surely Janet is too old to have a child, right? I mean, it's been almost a quarter of a century, isn't it time for her to get knocked up and to give away another kid to another member of that horrific family?

The real question is whether or not she has fingerbanged herself enough to fill an entire disc.

Indeed, R284. They're like a cult.

Please

the anti-Janet's make more sense then janebot who's in total denial and repeats their "facts" over and over.

Janet Jackson may have "ridden" the coat tails of her brother(s) but she still had to PROVE herself in order to keep her rewards. It's one thing to get something, but one has to know how to keep it. so suck it fool!

Wait, seriously: is Janice dead?

r287, Janet's career: 1986-2001, and I'm being generous with anything that came after 1997's "The Velvet Rope".

by Anonymousreply 28907/09/2013

She 'was' OK back then in the late 80's and 90's and agree with [R289] nobody gives a fuck after Velvet Rope... its like the more weight she lost the bigger of an ass hole she became.

by Anonymousreply 29007/09/2013

After "The Velvet Rope" she pulled a Madonna and went backwards, trying to get hits on radio. Madonna released "Ray of Light" around the same time as "The Velvet Rope." They both became crap after those albums, and it commenced 2000-, just as they were beginning to be taken seriously. Oh, and Janet hooked up with that ugly troll, Jermaine Dupri, just as Madonna did with that asshole Guy Ritchie in the early 2000s. Both men had terrible effects on their careers.

"Feedback" was a hot song and I thought it should have been a hit.

by Anonymousreply 29207/09/2013

The music video for that song was ghetto as hell. She was dancing in a bowl of Cheerios.
