    • Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      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.

    If the tour was for "everyone" not only would she go out of her way to promote it, so everyone can know it exists, the setlist would not have as many album tracks from every album from RN-DJ whilst the hits that everyone knows are only featured. It's common sense that she's not here for the casual fans this era, if she was she'd have done alot of things that she's done on her own before. She didn't have to say it she shows it. 
    Assuming whether or not she's actually pregnant, assuming her marriage wasn't happy, & assuming she wouldn't continue the tour isn't the same. Knowing that everything from Unbreakable to right now isn't for everybody isn't assuming, it's evident in what she does and how she does it, it's for the fans  that would appreciate it most, not the ones who need reminding.

    GOD DAMNIT I love candid Janet her whole being when she's behind the scenes, I'm so grateful for every glimpse, this had great mentions and moments. My fave moments were her "My face is so rouuund..." lol. And all the shots and moments of her in the makeup chair for Scream.

    About him though, Goddamn, did he live 1 hell of a life, so inspiring, yet so sad, but so much to celebrate him for, glad this now exists to teach us all more about who he was and what his story was, fantastic person, and yea I agree with Dayz for sure on that, HANDS DOWN THE best Janet makeup artist (I love me some Preston too tho), but Kevyn bought out her features like nobody else ever has sense or before him. He had a gift with them colors & brushes on those women's faces, every 1 of them.
    I cant get over....that he found & met his birth mother, & started what looked like a relationship with her & his biological family, and then when he told her he's gay, she basically disowned him again. And then spoke to the cameras of this documentary with very little remorse about that, just...."If I raised him, he wouldn't have been gay, cause I'd beat it out of him"....that kind of unapologetic destructive ignorance just hurts me to my core. Giving him up at birth was clearly the best thing that could happen to his life (I loved his adopted father), its too bad by all accounts, that wasn't ever clear to him.

    sure could, but as I pointed out, from her lips, shes more comfortable with larger venues, and at this point, I think her comfort matters. That comfort is fine, it wouldnt be if she had anything to prove to the gp, and shes already proven she can fill em.

    Last I checked Arena's have bigger stages and allow for bigger production, and she's said from her lips she's more comfortable with larger venues than smaller . Fact of the matter is if she wanted to fill up seats with casual fans she knows what to do, just like if she wanted Unbreakable to do bigger numbers she knew what she could've easily done, but the msssage from her lips and her actions is that this is about her real fans, the ones who don't need her to remind them "I'm still here".

    She didn't have to tweet that the tour wasn't for casual fans, the fact that the hits take a backseat whilst album tracks from up to 25 years ago get spotlighted said that  loud and clear (as if her not promoting didn't). The people that would should appreciate this tour, know about this tour and got their tickets or will get them, if the don't know they don't matter.

    Everything about this tour says it's not about casual fans, that it's for the stans. And she's at a point in her career where that's acceptable. This ain't the tour for them, they want the hits that they heard on the radio 20yrs ago that they forget about sometimes, they don't know shit about TwentyForeplay, Where Are You Now, What About, New Agenda, or Island life or any of the songs we never thought she'd perform because they're album tracks that only stans know and care about. Complaining about casual fans not seeing this show is like complaining that your parents got you & your siblings a kickass christmas present but didn't get anything for anyone else in the but their kids.....

    Exactly, it reminds me of the episode of South Park when Cartman basically/accidentally stopped a terrorist attack because he was racist against the new muslim kid, and at the end says the line, "True or false, racism just stopped a terrorist attack?". And the disturbing truth is in this situation many of the fans that wre concerned for her was simply because he is a muslim, and expected him to treat her badly because he is. They were right, sure, but it doesnt make those assumptions any less problematic in this society.

    Apparently too Tish & her family's affected by the flood, she was having a conversation with TIna in the comments of her page, she's staying with her mother in Houston while she takes a class there but she still lives in LA, but was in the flood herself. I'm glad she and her family's OK, not only is she my favorite of Janet's dancers, but I'm the proudest of her post-Janet career

    On the subject of the This is me of What about, if you can jump to the assumption that it was about her relationship with her current relationship, it can also be assumed that this being the 1st time she performed the song in almost 20yrs  (18 to be exact) it couldve brought back memories of the past. Its just as much of a possibility.

    But if you're going to reserect a debate/discussion that's already over if you're not contributing anything that would have weight on the argument what's the point, the moment's gone, it's now just wasting time.

    That's an interesting theory, my theory was confirmed by her & Jimmy that that was their favorite album to make because everyone was rooting for them, they had everything they wanted and needed at their disposal, they could do anything they wanted to and make any decisions they wanted to make. And it's the 1st album Janet was onboard of every bit of the production end, and her influence is there, it's in the production and background and lyrics the way it hadn't been previously to the full extent, everything from the past was stepping stones to this then TVR. Opinions on which is better are nothing but opinion, the filler some of you speak of isn't filler for everyone. 
    Why yall are trying to dig up a settled and finished bullshit opinion debate that really will have no right answer is hilarious

    I can only be gathered on this topic/opinion if Janet turned out to be more involved the artistry, writing, & production for Control than she was for janet. You can keep this going all you want, but you know I'm right, like it or not or agree or not. You like Control more for the theme, I like janet. more for the artistry and how eclectic & flexible it is.

    I'm legit surprised Jay isn't trying to get Bey to do it to get her to be the 1st overrated artist to do it 3 times. 
    But yea similarly I'd be OK with this being true because of the potential of the uproar. I legit don't care how Janet feels about it because like with alot of things it's now bigger than her, it's now a sexism thing, and a privilege thing , and this is the perfect time

    There's literally no active mods monitoring on a daily basis, if they were it'd be handled, so that point's moot, and come on man, we do this for everything that doesn't directly involve her, even if the conversation turns into being about her (which obviously is the goal) it's still not about her. New's that potentially involves her doesn't involve her. Hell we do this for her families news all the time if it's posted here, Justin's overrated ass surely doesn't deserve a pass on that anymore than her siblings do, because ofcourse this is intended to  further the discussion and unfairness and sexism of the topic, BUT still, it's just "potentially" involving her, and it's news that doesn't directly involve her. 
    It probably won't get moved (again, not any daily active mods), but the point is it doesn't matter if it does or doesn't, if you do it or if I do it, when any of us post shit that doesn't belong in a Janet section, we all drum the point home so it won't happen often or at least from the same people. Don't take t personal

    ......really....almost a month later....its all finished and you felt the need to re-ignite? For starters RN wasnt apart of the discussion. Next "the janet album was mostly about sex & love lyrically" yet & still, the janet. Album was the 1st album that she was as heavy a producer & composer as she was and yes more so than RN, she wrote on it more, and from Jimmy's own mouth, was more hands on with the production of the whole album. Like 1 more or whatever but thats a fact.

    This garbage shouldn't be in this section for 1.
    And I'm really hoping the black community drags him on this the way they did for All Lives Matter. He gets too many passes for his mediocrity it'd be such a full circle moment if this were to come back at him. But I'd suspect whether or not this is real it could be for the ratings and the controversy, Despite Gaga's great reviews, there hasn't been a controversial pick, this is way to drum up mo re views and more attention, a good/great show isn't their priority (obviously) but the ratings are, and they haven't been so great these last 2.
    It is NOTHING short of sexist to support this disgusting possibility.
