      General 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.

  2. Mr. Wonder added a post in a topic More Janet Shade on Billboard's New Chart??   

    I did find that omission very glaring. Idk how a song that was #1 for 10 weeks doesn't rank. Even if it's based on how these R&B songs performed on the Hot 100, both songs peaked at #2, while "Right Here" was on the chart for 22 weeks, only two weeks longer than ATAP.

    Right, so there's no right or wrong answer. See where we've arrived?

    Stating an interpretation of the storytelling component of a pierce of choreography is not "over thought" (which is two words btw). The choreography represents a statement of control, period. It's not a matter of disagreeing, it's a matter of your negligible knowledge of the art of dance. This is why you've gotta read those links so that you'll be able to have an intelligent conversation on this topic.

    Well this is all the more reason why you should have a similar analysis of the AI performance versus reducing the performance to a "strut" or "strutting", as you deemed it. The performance of the song is very similar to the video, the choreography is just different. But the style of dance, the concept/storytelling, and the organization? All the same. 
    And plz don't belittle "Honey". That video pushed the boundaries of movement in contemporary dance, and set a new precedent for breakdowns in video and live choreography. 
    Here's some more links where you can learn so the next time you have this discussion you'll have an idea of what you're talking about:

    Well you can't speak for others and their interpretation of the performance. Don't attribute your ignorance to others. But in the meantime, definitely check out that link and read up on the performance aspect of dance so that you can have a healthier discussion about this topic.

    Oh dear. You called my description of the performance "over thinking", but proceeded to provide an analysis of another Janet performance in the following paragraph. It would be a safe assumption to conclude that your knowledge of dance is minimal, correct?  Dance is form of expression (aka "art") whose interpretation of it is based on its audience, hence why it's called "art". There's no right or wrong answer. This AI performance is similar to SOTW @ RN1814 Tour in that she's telling a story of society's issues, the same way she personified violence with WA @ Vogue VH1, the female imagination with "If", and her zealous approach in RN. These are driving concepts of her choreography, and the dance has to match the message of the music, or the dance is ineffective, and outright pointless. You can learn more about it here.

    Janet-Journey should have it. If not I have a good version on my computer. I can send it to you when I get home.

    The whole performance of "Nasty" was a story of Janet being in control (no pun intended) of her relationships, and telling guys to act right if they want a chance.
     
    Basically all the guys are vying for Janet's attention, and their steps reflect that - they lean back as she comes through, they take turns going up to her showing their moves, the shirts coming off, they follow her as she traverses the stage. Look carefully at the dancer in the white shirt at 5:25 next to Janet. Notice around 6:02 she's dissatisfied and she pushes the guys away. Go to 6:05. The guys are on one side, and Janet on the other because she's getting a good look at all of them and scoping out which one she wants. Then around 6:35 she lines them up to choose, she points to the ground to make the guy fall and steps on the guys back to show she's in control (again no pun intended). End the end, the guys were all nasty, so she didn't choose one (she was over them after the "Ms. Jackson if you're nasty" line). 
    And aside from the storytelling, look how organized the routine is (Jazz style start to finish). Genius choice of style because Jazz dance was born from African-American rhythms that would later influence the New Jack Swing sound of "Nasty", and because Jazz dance often features paired dancing (male-female). This is easily one of her best performances to date, top 10 if you ask me.

    Two vastly ddifferent perspectives, clearly,  because all of which you described is part of the storytelling of the routine.

    The AI performance is an perfect example of her knowledge of how to fully use a stage, storytelling and organization in choreography, and flexibility in dance.
