It's usually said that the most loyal fanbase is girls and gay men but I think as artists age, if they don't have old white males as a fanbase, their touring ability suffers, especially in venues above theatres (arenas, stadiums etc.). Also dancers age out quicked than singers.

Same thing that has happened to Madonna and other female music artists of 1990's and early 2000's, JT has aged and world has moved on to an extent.
JT is 53, and while not old per se; it can seem almost ancient when trying to appeal to an audience that either wasn't born when you were in your prime, or barely out of elementary school.

That is true I'm afraid.
Like Madonna and others JJ is more of a mover on stage complete with backup dancers, props, etc... But also like Madonna she's always miked, and her studio recordings rely heavily on modern engineering.
There are plenty of younger performers who do the same thing pretty much and that is who are drawing crowds atm.
No one wants to see granny Madonna grab her crotch and try to act like it's the 90's, ditto goes for JJ.
If any of these performing artists had real actual singing talent they could take pages from Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald and scores of others who continued to release work and had decent enough careers until the end. Even Frank Sinatra manged to knock it out of the part with his Duets recording.

Yeah Janet was essentially an A list pop star from, what, 1986 until the 2004 Super Bowl? I guess you could argue that All for You marked the end of tenure at the top, but even then 15 years is an awesome run.
|by Anonymous||reply 9||03/27/2020|
Yeah Janet had/has an a noteworthy career either way. I view her as the last chapter in the Jackson music era, which pretty much dominated music for almost 40 years. R&B was already in decline in the mid 2000s as hip-hop took over, so even without the Superbowl, Janet's career would've cooled off anyway. All For You was such an awesome album I feel like its pretty overlooked in Janet's body of work.
|by Anonymous||reply 10||03/27/2020|
R8 it's actually the opposite.
She was a major star while she stuck to the basic formula: catchy, funky dance grooves with 1 or 2 slick ballads, created by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
When she tried to veer from that and do concept albums (Velvet Rope was the start, even though it ws also J&L), it sucked.
she needs to get back with them and just do a new version of the Control album, use the 80s instruments and sound. Today it will sound fresh an new vs. all the computer-generated non-music out there.

She might've been able to hang on a little longer if she'd stuck with Jam and Lewis longer (and her Superbowl attention grab not backfired). They knew how to do the most with her vocal limitations and could really crank out catchy songs.
The vast majority of her output outside of her works with them were underwhelming at best, and had nothing to make up for the weak vocals.
Her fluctuating weight and ever changing face didn't help either, with her increasing attempts to try to push a sexy image.

She is nothing like Madonna, as big a cunt as she is.
Madonna doesn't mime most of her songs nor rely heavily on help. When she was sick during her last arena tour in 2016, it was quite noticeable. Also, Madonna mixes it up dance wise. Madonna's touring record is second to none without doing Greatest Hits Tours. If Madonna does a Greatest Hits Tour, the numbers will be staggering. Madonna's sound has always changed and moved forward, for better or worse. Madonna can actually sing. Spare me the bullshit that she can't. She can. Live and in the studio, Madonna has shown time and again she has the chops. She's no Whitney but she is no Janet. She can sing circles around Janet.
Janet has no talent. She can dance but it is the same robotic military moves her brother did. Her sound did change a bit but then her progression stopped. She doesn't have the voice to carry a long career. She has some great songs but her output since the late 90's has been stunted. Even playing the hits, she can't fill up but small arenas. And even then, she has trouble putting asses in seats.

The music business is brutal. Stars age out usually by the end of their 20s up to mid-30s unless it's some classic icon or rock band. Janet had a MUCH better career than most and was, at one time, probably the biggest star in the business. Plus as others point out, she is more of a stage performer and has a thin voice. Those types don't do as well.

She was good at her thing, which was the Jackson thing. She and Michael both had major pop-rock presences, which is really interesting in retrospect because there aren’t a whole lot of black performers who operate in that genre. They still stand out in a lot of ways. But their music was a very specific type of rock/R&B hybrid that doesn’t really exist any longer. It’s an outdated sound.
Pop music still sounds essentially like pop music. Pop from the 80s, 90s, 2000s, 2010s and now is recognizable as pop even though style has changed a lot.
The same can be said for rock, R&B, hip hop, rap, country.
The Jacksons sounded distinctively like themselves, and that sound now belongs to a bygone era. Michael Jackson is dead, and I think his death more or less made the whole Jackson enterprise part of the past.

No. Janet was never as big as Michael in ANY way. Janet fans tend to do this all the time. They claim she was as big as Madonna and Michael Jackson which is so fucking untrue. Madonna was far bigger than Janet and even she wasn't as big as Michael Jackson. I say this as someone who makes fun of him and cant stand his persona. Michael Jackson is the biggest solo star of all time. He is the only solo artist who will be as remembered as The Beatles. Madonna is a tier below him and Janet is two or three tiers below her. Unlike Madonna or Michael, her hits were mainly in America with little attention elsewhere. Janet is not even one of the 10 biggest female stars of all time.

Madonna was definitely bigger than her in the '80s than Whitney (circa The Bodyguard), Mariah (circa Daydream), Celine (circa Titanic) too.
Justin Timberlake was also more *current* than her when the Superbowl happened. By then Britney, Christina Aguilera, and (you won't believe this, but it's true though not in music terms) Jessica Simpson were bigger than her.
Which is probably what motivated her to do that 'wardrobe malfunction'. She was also probably inspired by all the publicity Britney and Madonna got from their kiss at the MTV Music Awards in 2003. They didn't really get much backlash for that really. But the Superbowl has a different audience and significance.

What kind of stupid nonsense is that?
I don’t know what you’ve been listening to, but Black Cat does not sound like That’s the Way Love Goes does not sound like Control does not sound like Got til It’s Gone does not sound like Together Again does not sound like Nasty... The janet. album alone spans multiple genres, from pop to rock to R&B to house. And she is one of the most risk-taking black female artists over the last four decades, particularly when you put her career next to the bland, safe likes of your Mariahs, your Whitneys, your Tonis, etc. And just about all of her output since 1986 has been concept albums. CONTROL was asserting independence, RN 1814 was a view of the various societal issues plaguing the world (and is still relevant today), the janet. album was about the artist embracing her sexuality, The Velvet Rope was a dark masterpiece that explored self-doubt, depression, losing loved ones, spousal abuse, homophobia, etc.

Janet had 15 years of success, from 86-01, and not an ounce of music success before or after. Madonna had 26 years of recording success and continues to have touring success. And of the two, I'd say Madonna was more likely to have another hit single or album before Janet.
And contrary to popular belief, Nipplegate was the best thing to happen to Janet. She had been on a fast slide down the past couple years prior to it and was able to use it as the reason her career ended. It's bullshit, of course. Her career was on the way out and would have quietly sputtered without her being able to use her disgusting, flabby udder to put the blame on. Poor cow.

Janet performed a medley of songs from her first two albums on her Rock Witchu tour in 2008. Control was when she started having input with her music and didn’t just sing what other people wrote for her, so while her music career didn’t start with Control, that album was a rebirth of sorts.

😂 , poor R103.
The All For You album gave Janet her highest first week sales ever and the title track broke a ton of records at radio, netted her another Grammy and was the longest running single of 2001. At the time, she’d also starred in her second consecutive # 1 US box office film and was declared the first MTV Icon. So, you see, “on the way out” would be the incorrect way to describe her career at that point.
But you tried.

Like the above poster said, there are young performers (I wouldn't call them artists or singers) who are doing the same act Janet did, and they're the same age as the current generation, why would younger people want to see an old lady do the same thing that people of their own generation, like Dua Lipa or Ariana Grande are doing?
Most of us here on DL are middle-aged or very close to middle-aged and I think we tend to forget how fucking OLD people like Janet Jackson and Madonna are to young people today. They're total dinosaurs and of no interest.
To put it in perspective - if you're Gen X, Madonna and Janet's peak years are as far removed from Gen Z as the 1950s were for us.

a #1 album means nothing. Let's take a look at some albums that have hit #1 over the past decade.
Showroom of Compassion/Cake- sold 44K its first week and dropped to #25 in week 2.
The King is Dead/Decemberists- sold 94K its first week and fewer than 200K altogether
Mission Bell by Amos Lee- sold 40K the first week and sank like a stone
Trespassing by Adam Lambert- sold 77K its first week and fewer than 200K total
Set You Free/Gary Allan- sold fewer than a quarter of a million copies total
Like Clockwork/ Queens of the Stone Age- sold 91K its first week and failed to go gold
High Hopes/ Bruce Springsteen- sold 99K his first week and fewer than 200K total
And on and on and on. And these were all from the first four years of the decade, before the music business went completely down the toilet and they started counting free streams as sales. #1 means shit all today.

Every time Madonna released a new video, it was an event. FFS, her videos made the national news on a number of occasions.
She also released one-off singles between albums, usually songs she did for movies like Into the Groove, Live To Tell and This Used To Be My Playground, among several others. She really knew how to keep her brand out there.

Streaming being added as sales is a fucking joke. Now, artists are having 6,7,8,9 top 40 hits from one album all due to streaming. Not sales. Not radio play. Streaming. Streaming is so manipulated. Drake just had another song debut at #1. How can a song be the most popular the week it comes out? What a joke. No wonder the music industry is dying.

Oh please! Janet hasn’t been relevant for 20 years. (Madonna 15 years). I like their early work but they are both entertainers who sing. Janet does Whispercoo. They both need to “collaborate” to have a hit. Neither are great musicians. They are dancers, or perhaps musical theatre type artists. Kylie and Madonna could sing rings around Janet, and neither of them is particularly vocally gifted.
Janet got a record deal because of her last name.
Janet is in the RRHOF for diversity, and they had many, many, many better choices. Tell me Janet sings better than Chaka Khan.
Dance pop is a young person‘s game and no matter how many good memories us old farts have, the heyday of Janet (and Kylie and Madonna) are over. They are nostalgia acts. If you think otherwise you are delusional. It’s not 1990.

That Virgin mega record deal did her no favors. She wasn't going to be able to keep the kind of momentum she needed to keep up her end of it, so she ended up pushing out more albums that were less and less quality. Control, Rhythm Nation, and janet. were major events, each representing a seismic shift in her style and image--and she was able to mine those albums for several hits over 2 years each. Then Velvet Rope fizzled and she started increasing output to make up the numbers. Too bad because it was a great album, but nobody wanted kinky experimental Janet. She was a thin-voiced dancing pop star, not avant garde. All For You was a return to form and led with one of her biggest hits, but then died out. She had become kind of stale by then.
From 1986 to 1997 she released 4 excellent albums in 11 years. From 2001 to 2008 she released 4 meh albums in 7 years. And the greatness of those 4 was largely because Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were at the helm--it's not a coincidence her output weakened when she started relying less on them.

She didn’t. Janet Jackson was, is and will always be a wealthy woman on her own. Whether she was making money as a child actress on a sitcom or amassing a fortune as THE highest paid singer in music history twice in one decade (look it up), Janet has never had financial issues unlike some of her contemporaries, who went broke or near-broke from poor money management, drug and gambling issues, etc. You will not find a story online of Janet ever having issues with money, because it has never happened. She was rich when many of the women who are her contemporaries were on the outside of show business looking in and dreaming of a career, every woman named upthread included.

I love that thread comes up every-so-often and Janbot quotes the same well-honed selective facts.
You know, it would actually be fine if Janbot just said: 'Yes, Madonna was bigger. But Janet still had a great run. Fifteen years and four good albums is more than most people and Janet has nothing to be defend.'
But instead it's always the same attempts to suggest she's much, much bigger than Madonna, still relevant, still fresh, was ever a great vocalist. Janet's accomplished a lot. But none of that's true and nobody is buying it.

Janbot was up all night in a meth fueled bender writing ridiculous lies in an attempt to pad Janet's resume.
Madonna had far bigger movie hits and lets not forget her culturally enriching movie, 'A League Of Their Own'. Plus Madonna won a major award for Best Actress. Madonna actually won major awards for her movie songs, two Golden Globes and a Grammy as the songwriter. She would have been nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for Evita had she not been a bitch and actually campaigned.
Janbot likes to post all these really dubious accomplishments for Janet "First Black Female to have a number 1 in a leap year" but to list all of Madonna's accomplishments would break DL.

God why all the haters. Someone else said upthread like Madonna she is more performance that vocalist. When you get over a certain age and your body isn't as tight it's not as easy to do all that moving and dancing for a 2 hour show. She aged out of her ability. She doesn't have the strength in her voice to just stand on a stage or sit on a stool and belt out a song and create a moment like other aging vocal talents can.

Janet was a middling talent who was able to parlay the world's hunger for her brother in between Thriller and Bad to record a soundalike album that was pretty much created by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. If her brother had been more prolific and put out an album at the end of 1985 (or if he had told his deadbeat brothers to go fuck themselves and not done the Victory tour), then we'd never have had a Janet Jackson.

If her career really was ruined by blacklisting -- which I'm skeptical about -- then it's a fitting end. The only reason she ever had a career in the first place is because of nepotism. Her first two albums flopped hard yet she got a third chance, then had a few good albums (borrowing a lot from her brother and gaining a lot of help from others) but once she stopped working with JJ&TL she stopped having success. She was only ever really their puppet. Her thin vocals hidden somewhere on their songs.
Even Paula Abdul -- no great singer, but a good dancer who helped Janet and whose moves Janet is still using -- took the initiative to record a demo with her own money and send it to records labels. Would Janet have even bothered if music wasn't the family business? I don't know.
|by Anonymous||reply 229||04/15/2020|
She supposedly wanted to be an actress, but her dumbass father made her record her first 2 albums, with milquetoast results thanks to his poor decisions. She still tried to develop an acting career but could only get TV roles and wasn't exactly lighting the world on fire. So she smartly moved to singing/performing, where she had built-in access and used it to get the hell away from her father and pair up with real talent.

Let's look at some facts, shall we? Kelly Clarkson is almost 40 now. That means she probably listened to Janet when she was younger. YouTube is the best measure of an older pop star's relevancy since nobody buys physical records and it is available globally. Her youtube channel gets less than 300,000 views a day. Mariah and Whitney are at about 1.5 million. Madonna's gets around 2.5 million. Michael Jackson gets around 3.5 million. Janet's catalogue is doing so badly, she doesn't have any songs that get more than 40,000 views a day. And Madonna doesn't even have a VEVO account yet she has 10 videos that get more than 50,000 views including 3 that are getting over 200,000! THE END.

Now Janet, on the other hand, has always been stunning, from the time she was a cherubic-faced child actress, to when she blossomed into a teenaged budding singer/actress with a flip hairdo, to when she ultimately became a world renown pop icon with big doe eyes and a smile that is second to none. Weather sporting killer abs or carrying extra weight, before nose job or after, short hair or long, what have you.

She saw her career go into decline because she never sang well, she has weight that goes up and down by as much as 100 lbs on a regular basis, she recently became the 3rd oldest woman to give birth at 62, and she is in the process of transitioning into a Chinese woman.

I think part of Madonna's problem is that she refuses to grow old gracefully.

she has a beautiful, listenable voice. Diana Ross also had no range. Doesn't make her a bad singer. But she had a decent 15 year run. That's about all anyone gets in terms of hits. After that, its new albums that need to be bundled with concert tickets. Even Fleetwood Mac, still touring and all their hits were from 1975-1990. Springsteen only had hits from the 70s-1996. Lionel Ritchie was a monster hitmaker from the 70's and i dont think he ever had a hit in the 1990s.
I think part is that its hard for black talent with a heavily black fan base to sell expensive tickets. The black wealth gap is real.

You do realize, R478 or maybe you don't because you're a fucking idiot, that we are not loons for Madonna, Whitney, Mariah, Beyonce......we are here to make Jabba (Janet) cry. She is a meth addled nut. We live to keep her busy finding articles and GIFs. She brings up Madonna. So we go with it.

All of these washed up pop tarts - Whitney, Ms. George Michaels, Prince, MJ, Janet Jackson, Madonna, Paula Abdul - had private lives that were train wrecks and that is why they are (mostly) rightfully all dead. They died for their art.

Janet is the only black artist with number 1 albums that span the 80s, 90s, 2000s and 2010s
She has more R&B #1s than any female except Aretha
She was the first woman to have five consecutive #1 albums on the BB 200
She was the first woman to garner a Producer of the a year Grammy bod
She is the only artist with seven top 5 Hot 100 singles one one album
She was the youngest artist to have 6 Top 40 singles on one album
Her RN tour remains the biggest debut world tour in history
She is an Oscar nominated, multiple Grammy winning multi platinum trendsetting artist, who systematically destroyed and created all of your faves over the decades

Madonna's film debut, Desperately Seeking Susan (a role she got before becoming famous), made $27 million at the box office. That's about $65 million in 2020 dollars, and was director Susan Seidelman's biggest success.
Janet's debut film, Poetic Justice (a role she got after becoming famous and failing to break into film acting on her own), also made $27 million at the box office, but 8 years later. That's about $48 million in 2020 dollars, and was a flop for director John Singleton, whose Boyz in the Hood had made twice as much, and his next film Higher Learning made 1.5 times as much.
Madonna's biggest box office films were A League of Their Own and Dick Tracy, which made over $100 million. Truth or Dare is also one of the highest grossing documentaries of all time.
Janet's biggest box office film was Nutty Professor II, which made $65 million and was a flop compared to the first film which had made over $100 million. Since then, nothing but supporting roles in lesser performing Tyler Perry films.
JanBot tries to pass her useless opinions off as facts, but the numbers don't lie. Madonna always wins.

R535, bullshit. The Velvet Rope Tour was long over when X-Men filmed. Janet (and Mariah Carey) auditioned and didn't get it. Michael also wanted a role and didn't get it.) Angela Bassett was the first choice for Storm.
JanBot always lies.
"It’s long been known in fan circles that Jackson was deeply interested in playing Professor X, the bald, brainy, wheelchair-bound mutant leader. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, X-Men screenwriter David Hayter discusses more of the various stars who came in to audition for the famous Marvel franchise, including Jackson and his sister, Janet Jackson—who wanted to play weather-manipulating mutant Storm.
“It was amazing” to see who wanted to take part in the original film, Hayter says. Another famous singer was also brought in for Storm: the elusive chanteuse herself, Mariah Carey. Can you even imagine it? Storm as a warm honey-blonde with a penchant for diamonds and a superhuman whistle register? Even more interesting is that Carey wasn’t the first choice for the role, which ultimately went to Berry: Angela Bassett was on the top of the list, but demanded too much money, Hayter says."
