    • 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.

    DENIED-- Slights Against Janet & Omissions of Her Work
    I've posted on the subject before, but would like to know what others have seen in terms of members of the media that continue to try and erase Janet's legacy.  If you find blatant omissions of Janet's work, unfounded comments or other subtle forms of shade, post them hear.  If we all know about them, maybe we can all refute them as a community.  
    For those unfamiliar with the issues, this post on The Inquisitr is a good place to start.

    BBC Interview With Kendall and Taylor
    Kendall Harris and Taylor Hatala discuss going on Tour with Janet.  This was from the Unbreakable World Tour.  It's very sweet, and I appreciate their playlist!!  
    Can't wait to see these young ladies again for the State of the World Tour!!

  6. wayneashleymusic added a post in a topic Who is checking for Jay-Z 4:44 Project?   

    I'm a Tidal subscriber, and have been since they started.  It's a great service, especially for those that are into the behind the scenes things with artists.  But Jay-Z already banked a huge chunk of $200 million from Sprint's stake in the service (as did all the other artist- owners like B, Nicki Minaj, Madonna, Rihanna, etc.), which is probably a heck of a lot more than he would've made on album sales anyway.  
    Tidal's biggest hurdle right now is the fact that Billboard apparently still ignores its streaming data, though I've heard rumors that is about to change.  If so, I think that would bolster the service.  
    And I'll say it again... the sound quality on Tidal is EPIC!!  But I agree he'd get more overall impact if he releases everything at once.  A smarter choice would be to do BTS stuff, additional tracks, etc. via Tidal as that will still drive hardcore fans to sign up.

    Yep... and whether it's hit or miss, we still talk about it, as people have been for over 40 years.  #EarnedIt.

  8. wayneashleymusic added a post in a topic NEW PIX (6/16) - Janet Glowing at Divorce Proceedings   

    She dresses in a lot of ways which are not meant to generate attention, because right now she doesn't want attention.  I'm sure there's people in London (not super fans, paps or celebrity hounds) that wouldn't recognize her if she's not "dressed up" and/or someone else points it out.  And even for the casual observer that does recognize her, they would have to stop and think for a minute, which is just long enough to get away.  
    I think there's definitely a reason for dressing down when you/re not in "performance mode".

    Ok so I digress.  The comparisons to Ms. Jackson's work are not warranted.  End of story and I take back the comment.  
    On Katy Perry's Witness, it is most certainly not 'complete shit'.  Some of the songs are quite good, and a hell of a lot more inventive than most of what's coming out today.  At least she's trying to do something.  But even on some of the songs that lack lyrical depth, the production is stellar and they are bops which would be welcome on most any playlist.

    Awe Janet looks relieved. I'm almost certain she would've been there to support Jimmy and Terry for #SHOF if not for her court date and custody situation. 
    Sending positive vibes for Janet, Wissam and little Eissa, as I know this can't be easy for them.

  11. wayneashleymusic added a post in a topic New Kelly Alexander Interview With Jimmy Jam!   

    Listened back to this interview whil cleaning the house, and this is exactly why I LOVE Jimmy! If you let him talk long enough, all the secrets will be revealed!! When Kelly asks about tour prep, he's talking about the sonic treatments, and almost says what new songs are going to be added!!

    The album is hit and miss. The title Witness is worth a listen, as are Swish Swish and definitely Pendulum. I think Power and Deja Vu get close to great but don't quite make it. 
    This is not an album that'a going to hit on first listen. And yes I totally agree when I say the era is similar to TVR I'm not saying the albums are similar. Witness isn't as personal, and it lacks the range and focus of TVR, plus the lyrical content isn't as strong (of course that's the case when comparing any Katy Perry album to ANY Janet album). But is taking a huge risk in trying to get woke.

    Can Katy Perry get a Witness??
    So it took me a minute, but after a couple of listens, I have actually come around to Katy Perry's new album Witness and I understand what she's trying to accomplish. Honestly, I think she really is starting to get WOKE and realizes that the superficial pop princess isn't going to cut it anymore. 
    Witness isn't a perfect album, but it sure is a more bold move than most pop stars at the height of their powers would be willing to take. Ironically, the Witness era bare many similarities to Janet Jackson's The Velvet Rope, which was also misunderstood by 90s era critics for it's overt pushing of boundaries, but is heralded twenty years later as one of the greatest albums in pop music. 
     
    What do y'all think?
