Racist list. But no surprise since it's from a Negress.

No doubt Janet is hugely influential to a generation of artists that came since. Personally, I like Janet's music from 1986-1993, her years of real superstardom, but I've also wondered at times if she only had that career because her brother was who he was. Once the knives were really out for him, her career began to wane, too. The "wardrobe malfunction" simply capped things.
There's no comparison between her and Madonna, however. People can like Janet's music better, but calling her the Queen of Pop is wrong. You wouldn't take "King of Pop" away from Michael or "Queen of Soul" away from Aretha, because they virtually trademarked those names for themselves. Not even Madonna had that much ego, was her problem.
Sure, Madonna's not in Michael nor Aretha's league, talent-wise, and Lizzo can have her personal opinion, but in terms of sales and amount of ink spilled during the 80s and 90s - real cultural impact - Madonna leaves Janet in the dust.

Ugh. Can we stop with questioning if she only had a career because of her brother? Every Jackson tried to be a pop star and all failed but those two.

She's not without talent, I didn't mean it that way exactly but I see how it could fan the flames of the Jabba/Vadge wars. She's a decent but limited vocalist, and also attractive. If any Jackson sibling was the total package other than Michael, it was Janet.

Janet failed at first. Then she got good producers after her first two flop albums.

Janet seems relatively normal compared to the rest of them. She has decent social skills, the rest of them…

I'm more disturbed by Beyoncé being labeled the "queen of MUSIC."
Like, of all music? Okay.

I think they’re all terrible, though there are a handful of Madonna songs I like.

R8 Yes, Janet owes her career to Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. They knew how to work around her many limitations and use what she did have to maximum effect. And they knew how to crank out catchy songs. Notice her career declined after she started working with others.

Aided by self-loathing white liberals.
The fact is, Madonna was a global superstar, like MJ. Janet never reached those heights., Her success was relegated mainly to the U.S.

Janet is a much more interesting musician and much more talented, but even I will admit that most people know that Madonna is considered the queen of pop.

I am okay with Janet being the Queen of Pop, but then Madonna is the Grand Empress of Pop.
Kate Bush is, of course, Queen of the Universe.
Mariah Carey is the Guttersnipe of Pop
Britney is the Court Jester of Pop
Taylor Swift is the Serving Wench of Pop

I'm a Negro and the true Queen of Pop is obviously Madonna. So the only racist I'm seeing on this thread is you, R4.

This one is too easy.
1. Album sales: Madonna has sold over 244 mil album equivalent ranked #5 on all time best willing list. Janet ranks #65 with 76 mils
2. Touring: Madonna is the top female touring artist of all time. Janet is not even on the list
3. Rock n roll hall of fame: Madonna got in in her 1st year of eligibility. It took Janet SEVERAL years to be accepted
4. Cultural impact: no contest here. Madonna is like god name. It’s the worldwide household name
5. Reinvention: no contest here. Madonna is the shape shifter. Janet still use the same choreography she did 30 years ago.
Madonna is better than Janet is everything and every single aspect

I always chuckle at these pissing contests on the DL (I adore Janbot's spunk).
But so, so, so many sad, nellie stans were on Twitter yesterday. There's SO many more sad fat messes who are off the rails with their stan behavior than I ever imagined.

Beyonce, Bieber, and Usher? Yikes. Ray Charles is the king of R&B. She's right about Tina Turner though.

I've been listening to a Jam & Lewis compilation and every time it gets to Janet, I lose my buzz. They worked with some good vocalists. Miss Jackson was not one.

Honestly Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis should be the queens of pop because they were the reason Janet was such a success. She could dance snd had charisma but her voice? So thin.
|by Anonymous||reply 27||August 31, 2021 4:41 PM
R25 it’s cool, your taste obviously doesn’t align with the music buying public as it relates to Jam and Lewis as I think they have had the most success producing for JJ.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Madonna was the bigger star on a global scale. But Janet was no small potatoes and she influenced a lot of pop music in the Anglo sphere particularly R&B and hip-hop. I think both Madonna and Janet are mediocre singers who relied heavily on talented producers plus the bonus of having charisma and sex appeal. I don't get why there are so many threads pitting them against each other. Plus DL is like bizarro world sometimes because nobody is checking for Madonna anymore.

Lizzo has an opinion and people get upset or rejoice? This fucking world. It doesn’t matter if MJ, Madonna, Elvis, the Beatles or whoever declares this or that. Cold hard facts speak volumes.

George Michael is the king not MJ. And of course Madonna is the queen. I don't think that out of the US/UK/Canada someone thinks that Janet is something like an icon.

No one cares what Lizzo thinks. She forfeited whatever shred of credibility she may have had a few years ago, because she chose to indulge her desperate need for attention online.
She amd Madonna both have that in common. So I'm surprised she doesn't respect Madonna more.

Figures a desperate ape would have a racist list. Janet never wrote her biggest hits. Madonna is annoying as all hell now but she was the Queen of Pop in the 80s-early 2000s. She always changed her style and was evolving music as well. LizzoTheLardo has her opinion but she also has a brown stain in her asshole she proudly shows off so I’m not listening to an obese crap dancer who can’t even twerk yet thinks she is and can’t even clean her butthole properly. Also, Chris Evan’s isn’t into beastiality so stop trying to make that happen Lardo!!!!

Janet is a huge porker, which is why Lizzo loves her.
She paved the way for obese artists of color.
Even when she gets skinny, you know it's only a matter of time until she explodes again.
Madonna never got fat. Ever.

With no mention of her mentor being the King of Music (Prince), I suspect she was drunk when she posted this or just trolling.
