Planet Janet Rules 07/07/2015General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom. To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread. This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet. If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists. Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members. Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist. This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense. If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action. Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks
Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum.
Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage. They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.
What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

As you all know.. I've been in a relationship for three years. I was happy but with every relationship there's a constant problem... That problem was me I suppose.
First let me say that I haven't been happy for a while. Since he bought the house and only put it in his name. I felt that was a huge slap to the face.. that's when it started. I swallowed my pride but it would bug me from time to time... He re-insured me that it was "both our homes" but I didn't feel it... If it's not on paper than it's not our home.. it's your home and I'm living in it, paying the utilities.
I took him to a nice, expensive restaurant for our 3rd year Anniversary. I regret it. That's when I knew I didn't want to spend the rest of my life with him.
We learn how to fall in love... but no one teaches you how to fall out.© - kg
I will admit that I cheated... I got caught and now it's over. I hate myself for it. I didn't want it to end that way but I wanted it to end. I wasn't truly happy. Yeah I lose a lot but I gain something money can't buy... Freedom.
I cried about it yesterday as I was moving out but today is a new day. It's going to take some time to put the past behind me... It's going to take a while to recover for him and for me.
The worst part was leaving my dogs. I'm crying thinking about them. But I could NEVER be selfish enough to separate them. Unlike their owners, they belong together.
And with all my posts for here on out, I will leave you with these lyrics from Mariah Carey's beautiful song Angel's Cry featuring Ne-Yo. Actually Ne-Yo's verse is everything
In a country side mansion outside Los Angeles, CA, where a crazed doctor is glowing with greed comes an inspiring story when that same doctor that murdered your father, becomes your best friend. An emo teen (played by Dakota Fanning) can't seem to move on after her father's murder. After a series of events, Pattie Princess Johnson attempted suicide and failed ending up reaching out to her father's murderer, Dr. Connor Murphy. What will become of them in the new drama: "You Are Not Alone".
Why is it you can hold it together through all the really big stuff, then a little thing happens and it's like the straw that broke the camel's back? I miss my doctor's appointment because I can't park my car anywhere, and I fall to pieces. Yet I'm living with a crazy bitch of a landlady and can't get out, and I shoulder it and carry on.
In case you didn't read it before, here's the transcript:
I crossed some things out.. That's what I want to comment on.. I have dreamed about it.. and cried about it but the relationship I had wasn't something I truly wanted. I felt to dependent on my other half... it wasn't equal like I wanted it in my dreams.
Dawn Richard spreads her wings and flies past her haters on her latest release “Fly.” The confident cut, produced by Deonté Music, will appear on the former Dirty Money diva’s upcoming EP Armor On, due March 27.
“I am the definition of fly/ Tell all you haters hi/ If you wit’ me, put your hands real high/ Nobody can do it like I,” boasts Dawn over the bass-heavy beat, for which a snippet previously leaked.
Bei Maejor celebrates his woman’s worth on “Special,” a cut off his Upscale EP, due March 29. The Detroit singer-songwriter pours out poetic words to his dream girl over the bouncy beat. “Prettier than Jada P., come and have some kids with me/ We could name her Willow, I ain’t playin’, I’m for real though/ But we gotta hurry up so she could grow up with Blue Ivy,” sings a blissful Bei.
Rita Ora’s invasion begins. The blonde beauty stormed New York radio with Jay-Z earlier today to premiere “Party & Bullshit,” the first single from her upcoming Roc Nation debut. The infectious pop jam, which borrows its familiar refrain from Biggie, serves as the soundtrack for your next barbecue or block party. Rita is working with Drake, The-Dream, Stargate, and more of today’s top hitmakers on her album, due this summer.
Estelle asserts her independence on the Ne-Yo-penned “Do My Thing,” a feel-good collaboration with Janelle Monáe off her third album All of Me, in stores and online Tuesday.
“My roll it ain’t your roll, but trust I know just where I’m going,” the Londoner sings on the energetic retro tune, which was inspired by her journey going from her mother’s garage to starting a successful life of her own in the U.S.
Estelle showered praise on her quirky collaborator Monáe. “As another black girl she is so singular,” she told Rap-Up TV. “She’s genuinely nice and I understood where she was coming from with her style and her energy, and I feel that she got me too.”
Plies professes his dedication to his girl on his ghetto love anthem “Fucks With You,” the first single off his fifth album Purple Heart. The Florida MC raps about a down-ass chick who’s not interested in his celebrity status, while R&B singer Kief provides the radio-ready hook. The song also appears on Plies’ new mixtape On Trial. Plus, watch the video for “Go Off,” a cut off the tape.
Teyana Taylor gets drunk on love on “D.U.I.,” the latest offering from her debut EP The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor, available for download on March 12. The Harlem songstress channels Janet Jackson as she glides over the smooth Hit-Boy-produced beat with her airy vocals, while fellow New Yorkers Fabolous and Jadakiss ride shotgun.
Far East Movement cranks up the volume with Justin Bieber on their feel-good collaboration “Live My Life.” The party anthem, produced by RedOne, will appear on the group’s upcoming album Dirty Bass, due in May.
The odd couple first met through Snoop Dogg at the Billboard Music Awards last year. “The dude is a talented dude. He’s grown up, everybody sees that, and for us, we wanted to do something different,” said Far East frontman Kev Nish. “We [wanted] to make a song that bridges that gap between the young audience and our audience, and the club audience that pops bottles and gets crazy.”
The song will be available February 28 on iTunes and has already received a “Party Rock” remix by LMFAO.
André 3000 resurfaces with a tongue-twisting verse on “DoYaThing,” his funky collaboration with Gorillaz and former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy for Converse’s “Three Artists. One Song” initiative. “I’m an OutKast but you’re into me/ Summer got mad ’cause winter blew me,” raps Three Stacks on the free track, which will be available for download tomorrow on Converse’s website.
Kid Cudi gives his fans a “Dose of Dopeness” for Presidents Day. Mr. Rager debuts the studio version of the long-awaited track, which he’s been performing live over the past few years. Produced by his WZRD collaborator Dot Da Genius, Cudder spits over the thumping rhythm. “Explorer like Dora, that’s how I got a clue too/ So fuckin’ underground, barely on YouTube/ Till ‘Day ‘N’ Nite,’ now they all got a clue who,” he raps. Get your fix below.
Santigold marches to the beat of her own drum on her new single “Disparate Youth,” hitting iTunes Tuesday. “We know now we want more/ A life worth fighting for,” chants the Philly native on the rebellious rock-tinged anthem. The song will appear on Master of My Make-Believe, the follow-up to Santi’s 2008 debut. Rise up for the revolution.
B.o.B knows how to treat a girl right. The ATLien shows his woman the finer things in life on “So Good,” the new single off his sophomore album Strange Clouds, arriving May 1. “I’ll have you livin’ life like you should/ You’ll say you never had it so good,” raps Bobby Ray on the feel-good Ryan Tedder production.
Dawn Richard protects herself from the evils of the music business on “Black Lipstick,” her edgy new record.
“‘Black Lipstick’ is the story of how I found out I needed armor,” explains the former Dirty Money diva, who recently parted ways with Bad Boy. “It’s the trap. The music industry is described as a mysterious woman. The seduction and the betrayal of her. I saw in color but as soon as my eyes set on her, all that was seen was black and white. That is when I knew I needed to put my armor on.”
The Druski-produced track is one of seven that will appear on Dawn’s digital EP Armor On, available March 27.
Rick Ross lives his life in “High Definition” in the latest music video off his mixtape Rich Forever. Following an intro from boxing champ Mike Tyson, Rozay surrounds himself with buxom babes, fancy whips, and guest stars Pharrell, Timbaland, and Wale in the black-and-white visuals.
This is the remix. Bad Boy signee French Montana rolls with the family in the video for the remix to his anthemic single “Shot Caller.” Diddy and Rick Ross lend a hand and Cassie and DJ Khaled make cameos in the slick black-and-white visuals, directed by Colin Tilley.
Wiz Khalifa lights one up and gets on his “desert swag” on “Morocco,” a new release that will not appear on his upcoming mixtape Taylor Allderdice. The Taylor Gang leader grapples with life in the spotlight on the trippy Sledgren production, on which he sings and raps.
“This song is about acceptance. Not necessarily feelin unaccepted but not really feelin accepted for who you are,” explained Wiz.
To celebrate the milestone of reaching 2 million Twitter followers, J. Cole releases a new song for his fans called “Grew Up Fast.” The soulful offering, produced by Canei Finch, samples former Temptation David Ruffin’s 1969 record “The Double Cross.”
“It’s only right I brought back the soul/ Ya’ll got way too electro, damn near techno/ Halfway homo, way too metro,” raps the Grammy-nominated MC.

I hope to make this place the number one stop on this board to check out all the latest music. Like you guys, I won't be a fan of everything posted, but it will give us somewhere central to check it out and share opinions. Enjoy.
If life is suffering, living is victory. To overcome obstacles and defy expectations is what life is all about. We are born in a world of inhumanity and evil....yet in this world where so many days and nights of darkness are inflicted on our impressionable existences, there are moments...moments in this so called life that are so beautiful...so emotionally evocative that we have no choice but to hope. We have no choice but to believe in something greater...something beyond the hollow walls of a miseducated and misunderstood life.
We have no choice but to believe that maybe, just maybe there is a God.
