      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.

    Well we can all agree to disagree, but the facts around Unbreakable up to this point are clear.  It's a great album, it hit number 1, brought Janet back in form with her earlier, more impactful work, and gave her a great excuse to go back on tour.  I recall a great Forbes article about this (written after Madonna's Rebel Heart release but before Unbreakable came out) which summed things up well...

    Ok SOMETHING is seriously up.  A bunch of new clips just appeared on the Janet Jackson- topic YouTube channel, and the sound quality is EPIC on the new tracks.  It almost sounds like it was mastered for YouTube/ digital listening.

    Bruno Mars' 24K Magic is old skool with only 9 tracks.

    "Salvage the era"?  Are you talking about the tour, or the album?  Unbreakable went to Number 1 and gave Janet her 40 Hot 100 hit and longest running Number 1 on any genre chart with No Sleep.  Sure it wasn't a million-seller but let's not get confused and say the album wasn't successful.  
    But let's be clear about chart expectations going forward.  Now that all of the charts rely so heavily on streaming, it's going to be tough for artists like Janet to have the chart success that you see from folks like Ariana Grande or Harry Styles.  Janet's fans don't spend every waking moment on social media trying to boost her YouTube and Spotify plays.  On today's Billboard charts, that's how you get to "Number 1" absent a monumental sales week.  
    And even when limited to Streaming, there's a lot of inequality built into the Billboard Charts.  Remember how the Dammn Baby video took over Facebook, yet it missed the Hot 100 entirely?  It's because it's YouTube views were low, and Billboard doesn't count Facebook video views into it's streaming data.  The only plays that matter to them are Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music and a few other services.  They don't count Tidal either.  
    Unbreakable is my favorite Janet album, and I personally would love to see a re-release.  But don't expect it to garner some huge chart position.  From that front, Janet would be better off doing an album or an EP, then combine with a new video and some lead-up promotion.

    Hey I shared my opinion and I am glad to be challenged on it.  I would love nothing more than to be proven wrong!!  The fact that Unbreakable album and tour received essentially zero in promotion, and the album still went to number 1 with respectable sales is saying something.  
    After I got back from Unbreakable New Orleans, I came in to the office with the tour book from the show, and was looking at it over my lunch break.  One of my co-workers came by and was like "wait, that's Janet Jackson, right?"  and I told her yes and that I had gone to her concert the day before.  She basically flipped out at the fact that Janet was on tour again.  
    Maybe promotion really is the key.  At least enough so that every possible fan knows that the shows are happening.

    Just some honesty hour here... 

    As we all know, Janet SHOULD be selling out large stadiums and arenas like Madonna, Cher, etc. because that's the level of superstar/icon/trailblazer that she is.  But when you suffer a decade long blacklist from radio and tv, it really impeded her ability to keep that relationship going, and grow new fans for the next generation.  
    All of that said, the few dates Janet did do for Unbreakable prove that she can support a great tour.  If she launches a similar format to Unbreakable (small core of dancers, less elaborate sets, etc.) and just trade out for some smaller venues (5,000-10,000 seats per city, upsize in select locations), she'll have a very successful tour, and make more than enough money to cover costs and turn a profit.  
    I went to the Unbreakable tour in New Orleans (driving in from Houston) and the Smoothie King Center was about 90 percent full... at least 15,000 fans there.  In a smaller venue, she'd sell out all of the initial shows, and maybe even consider multiple dates in each city, which cuts down on back to back travel.

    Ebony Article Calls Out "Gold Digger" comments
    Read and share on your social media.   
     
    When we hear about a famous Black woman going through a separation, breakup, or divorce, we reflexively aim to scrutinize what could be her transgressions.
    Instead of looking at Ciara as a survivor of an unhealthy relationship, she’s framed as a callous gold digger. Instead of looking at Halle Berry as a woman who has unfortunately suffered through inadequate relationships, she’s framed as an intrinsically flawed woman with an inability to appropriately discern potential partners. And now, Janet Jackson, coming off of her recently failed marriage to Wissam Al-Mana, is being excoriated as a greedy, loveless, parasite because things didn’t work out.

    Also glad to see that BET might have come to its senses, thanks to the #JanFam.  They went and posted a bunch of Clap Backs...

    OMG the Gold Digger crap just spread like wildfire.  I mean, really people do y'all not pay attention at all??  I mean how many ways has Janet tried to change herself to be with Wissam?? I mean there's no question that she truly loved/ loves him.  I agree with FreelovesJJ, the only things that could end something that deep would have to be family related.

    This wasn't orchestrated... it was VERY orchestrated.  But good for them both, to have (hopefully) went through some of the toughest things in private, and now getting it out so that the public won't be able to hound them about it.  
    With new pics come new questions... like WHO IS BOBBY TAYLOR?!?!  LOL

    Whatever happened, I'm just praying for Janet, Eissa, Wissam and the whole family.  None of this can be easy for them.  And all this Twitter BS about a Pre Nup is not based on facts.  Shameful how quick people are to label Janet as a "golddigger" and "hustler" when they have no clue about her private affairs. What they don't understand??  Society has always been quick to turn against a successful black female when things go wrong.  
    A New Agenda is OVER Due!!
