Her singing is soooo bad. Madonna gets so much shit for being a "bad" singer yet J Lo is SO tone deaf. Someone wrote about having to teach her to sing and they said she was completely tone deaf when she attempted to do "do re mi fa so". The only reason she is STILL famous is because she has the novelty of being an "ethnic" woman who still looks good for her age. Once the wrinkles set in, she'll be thrown to the wolves. I can't wait.

I found her stunningly beautiful in her early movies - Blood & Wine, U-Turn, Anaconda. But something about her face changed around the time she started dating Ben Affleck. Not sure if it was age or subtle plastic surgery. She also changed her whole style and the way she does her make-up. There's no denying she looks great for her age, and not drastically different from her early years, but I just don't see 'it' in her anymore, and her atrocious taste is extremely off-putting to me.

It could also be the make-up that makes her look different (apart from a bit of botox and filler which 99.99% of celebrities her age have). I know she's rumoured to have had a nosejob, but looking at side-to-side comparisons, I don't really see it.
Anyway, she needs to fire whoever has been doing her make-up since the early 2000s. 99 percent of the time she wears the wrong colors, and her lips always look like she drank hot chocolate and forgot to wipe her mouth afterwards.

She came on the scene at the right time, kind of like Julia Roberts in the nineties. Her fame is a result of timing, her willingness to work extremely hard and excellent management. Benny Medina is to thank for her career. The acclaim for Hustlers was bought by Medina, as was the Superbowl performance.
Her music career is a sham and everyone knows it. She stole vocals from black female artists, didn't give them credit and was never once called out for it. That proves how powerful Medina is. Stealing vocals and that cringe-wrothy Movieline interview she did at the start of her career is why she'll never be nominated for or win an award voted on by her peers. Nobody likes her.
To her credit, she's got a strong work ethic. She shows up, knows her lines, doesn't shit on the crew (much) and gets the job done. Nobody can ever call her lazy or entitled. She's worked hard for what she has. She just got a lot of opportunities by stepping on other people.

Okay. Not my argument, but I'm going to butt in anyway. Now, you're just being ridiculous. You can't take away Janet Jackson's talent for dance. The moves are one thing, but the way they're delivered/executed is another. Janet had a smooth, confident, cute and sassy delivery. Don't be a dumb-ass. She was an awesome dancer.
|by Anonymous||reply 144||07/17/2020|
^Precisely. Janet is THE icon of the dancing pop divas, and she has been since the '80s not only for her iconic dance moves, but because she's effortless at it. Women who are pop icons today (JLo included) grew up inspired by her and still try to imitate her stage presence. Even Ciara, who is self-professed Janet stan and is considered by some to be the best dancer out of the current crop of female pop/R&B artists, has praised Janet's dancing.

You're being Rickrolled! This Rick Ghastly vid from 1987 shows the contrast between an awesome professional dancer - the sexy black guy bartender - and a horrible Janet level non dancer in Rick himself. The black guy is trained, professional, athletic, in just 20 seconds he blew away every dance Janet ever feigned to perform EVER. The black guy's sexiness, charisma, flexibility, delivery. Flawless.

R144 Janet's lip synching (she never could sing live) in that horrible clip is "proof" that she is a legit dancer. Your mama musta had nothing but paint chips in her tits, my dear. Nothing in that clip provides evidence of being a good, professionally trained, flexible, charismatic dancer. It is just lame amateur arms flailing desperately and trying to fake it till you make it. Even Paula Abdul, a limited dancer, had more legit moves than Janet.

R154 One of the things about Paula Abdul choreography is that it's choreography for non-dancers. Lots of cheerleader-like hand movements and simple footwork that someone with rhythm, stage presence, and a little bit of pizazz can turn into something that wows.
Janet could do that. She had just enough talent to make Abdul's choreography pop. But I still wouldn't call Miss Jackson a "dancer."
J-Lo has had dance training and can execute the trickier moves, but she's also clunky and clumsy. So while she's studied dance, she's not very good at interpreting it or making it look smooth and lively.
So it's really six of one and half a dozen of the other when it comes to comparing Janet and J-Lo as dancers.

J Lo is a socialite nowadays who relies on self-promotion. She started out as a dancer on In Living Color and was a backup dancer for Janet and appeared in the That's The Way Love Goes music video. She then became an actress and managed to get roles in some B-movies before getting cast in Anaconda, Selena and Out Of Sight which both put her on the map. She then got into pop music and had a pretty big pop era from 1999 to 2002. Then she had high-profile relationships with P. Diddy, Ben Affleck, Mark Anthony and now A-Rod. She also made a bunch of lame 2000s rom-coms and tried some meatier roles like The Cell and Enough. Now she did the movie Hustlers and also got to a tribute to Motown and the Super Bowl. It's really impressive how she managed to remain so famous. She tried her hand at everything. Regardless of her lack of singing talent and barely passable acting (though let's be real most of Hollywood actors are just passable), she is entertaining and hard-working. It sucks that more talented people aren't as famous but it really is about being ambitious, driven, cutthroat and a raging narcissist to thrive in the entertainment industry.

r52, r54, Kevyn Aucoin used to do her makeup (Esp. for "Waiting for Tonight"), as well as Janet's, until he died. Then Scott Barnes took over for most of the past 20 years or so (they had a falling out when they found out he was selling info to the tabloids), but they made up recently. He's responsible for the super bronzed, highlighted and butthole mouth look that she has.
I worked with a kid that was on WoD and really dislikes her. Even though the kid called her "Miss Jennifer" (good breeding!), kid said that all that caring and crying was just an act- Miss Jennifer could care less about the kids and would never greet or look at them unless absolutely necessary for the cameras.

She was definitely one of those artists that the industry pushed hard onto us. But it's false that she stole other artist vocals and didn't sing. What happened was artists would send her demos and the producers would keep the vocals on the demos rather than use the beat and lyrics. So for example, "I'm Real" has J. Lo singing (of in her case talking) the song while Ashanti is very clearly on the chorus. Same with Brandy in Play. Natasha Ramos in Jenny on the Block. It's vocal blending and studio tricks. J. Lo sings over other artists vocals or has the artist sing the chorus. Timberlake, Rihanna and Britney have also done this.
|by Anonymous||reply 209||09/18/2020|
And when artists send in demos, the labels can still use the vocals. It becomes the property of the label once they buy it from the artist. But everyone involved got paid and credited if you look up the songs on Wikipedia or if you owned the CD, the backup singers and writers would likely be credited in the booklet. If Jennifer and her label refused to credit anyone, she would have been sued. This isn't like the 1950s and 1960s, when artists actually could steal and get away from it (looking at Led Zeppelin).

Also backup singers don't actually have to be credited either. It's like how an actors can make a cameo and not be credited in a film. As annoying as J.

"Play" was written by Christina Milian and she sang the chorus. This was not a successful single.
Brandy Norwood wrote "Louboutin" and is featured heavily in the song. This song was a "buzz single." It also flopped.
