    Was Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" a masterpiece?

    I don’t even know what songs are on this album.
  3. I’m not holding my breath and Sister Rosetta Thorpe should’ve been the first person they inducted. She’s the architect behind the damn genre.

    Mariah’s “GTFO” + “With You”

    Issa no. The song is only three minutes but feels a lot longer and I forgot what it sounded like when I tried to remember it so I had to go back. She’s giving me Charmbracelet vocals this time around.

    All For You vs. Unbreakable

    AFY has some very strong tracks but as an album Unbreakable was better to me. I’m looking at some of these debates and laughing. I don’t like AYF, Love Scene, nor Truth.

    The Re-Introduce Yourself Thread

    I don’t think she reads this board. And yes I know I’m super late in this reply lol. I can’t imagine JJ coming here.

    The song is okay but the video is terrible. Nothing is happening.

    ‘Unbreakable’ Turns 3 Years Old Today

    This is the last cd I ever purchased. I remember also buying it off of iTunes and being nervous about listening to it because it had been so long and I was worried about my expectations. I was on a flight to Boston for a vacation (which is ironic considering that’s where I was when I heard Discipline for the first time), and I decided to listen to it. Once I listened to “Night,” it was over. I met up with a fellow JanFam member/former JJ.com forumer and we got to gush about the album. A few weeks later I got to see her live. It was a really good time in my life. I played the album a few times today to celebrate. Happy Birthday!

    Activisnet Strikes again.....

    Shit I voted for Bernie lol. I’ve known about him since his filibuster all those years ago when he didn’t want the Bush tax cuts to be extended. I watched it on CSPAN seven or eight years ago. It was a Change Year and the Democrats didn’t read that right.

    She’s a woman and she’s expected to be likable and as a woman in politics, that’s a huge glass ceiling. I face it in Corporate America. With that said, I begrudgingly voted her.

    I’m sure it does change you. The Bushes were always nice to the Obamas though as soon as he won. There were reports that they made the transition as smoothly as possible for them. They always liked each other. It was the Clintons that had interesting relationships with other Presidents lol.

    She was qualified. Nothing in my mind can truly prepare you for that job besides being in it. And she was a million times more qualified than Trump hands down (it irritated me beyond belief when people tried to say they were the same). It was also clear to me in the primaries that people weren’t as nearly as enthusiastic about her in 2016 as they were in 2008 and that she would have an enthusiasm problem. I still thought she’d win though.

    I’m not going to put that on Black people. While I would like to see Black people vote, 53% of WW voted for Trump even after hearing him say the things he did. There were a lot of people just fine with upholding White Supremacy.

    Agreed. White Women also benefit the most from Affirmative Action. I can agree with elements of a movement and understand what it means to me and the nuances involved in it. I think Kavanaugh shouldn’t serve on SCOTUS because I think there are too many women coming out AND it’s also not lost on me that some of these women that knew him and are speaking out probably voted for Trump which makes it ironic lol.

    The #metoo movement was started by Black Women, but what tends to be the case we got overshadowed just like we did when Black Women started #BlackLivesMatter.

    So... as a Black Woman (how many people in this thread are one?), I initially was interested in the point of Janet speaking as a womanist vs. a feminist until I saw the rather flippant comment about not caring the women assualted by Bill Cosby (honestly - he’s a rapist and deserves all that’s coming to him). As a Black Woman, my race and my gender are intrinsically tied together (and Janet eloquently captured that for me in New Agenda). If it’s not racism or colorism, it’s sexism outside and within my own community. It’s why I pay attention to what happens to not just Black people but to women as well because I am forced to pay a steeper tax when something happens to women because I am a Black woman. Misogynoir is a real thing and it’s rampant regardless of if I’m interacting with White Women or Black Men. I also don’t susbscribe to the Kumbaya “We’re all one human race” as that erases the unique and specific challenges each oppressed group goes through and it’s that kind of thinking that fed the whole “We’re a post-racial society” mentality that allowed covert racism to go unchecked until it culminated in Trumpism. And in relation to the race of our future Presidents, I’ll be honest: I’m interested to see when we as a nation elect a president who isn’t biracial. So, I’m good with Janet making her comments because it’s true. And let’s not forget an important point: Black Women started the #metoo movement. She’s not co-opting a movement that she doesn’t already belong to.
  21. She ate that performance. Amazing job! I’m digging where her head is and it’s exciting.

    Janet Will Be on BREAKFAST CLUB!!!!!

    I’ve listened to him intermittently throughout the years from when he was Wendy’s side kick to a few months ago to form my opinion. He hasn’t done anything to change it. Fuck him. I’m good love. Enjoy.

    Janet Will Be on BREAKFAST CLUB!!!!!

    He’s playing extra nice because he’s involved in some problematic shit. Nah. Fuck him. I don’t doubt that he’d be respectful to Janet but I still don’t and hve never like him. He will always be the Donkey of the Day to me.
