    THE OFFICIAL STATE OF THE WORLD 2 TOUR THREAD

    Yes but even giving us more of songs like Alright and You Want This... it really pumps up the show and makes it feel like more of a party. I’m gonna say it, and some may disagree, but the energy I saw tonight, that I FELT tonight... this rivals “peak Janet” from the TVR and AFY eras. I mean this tour was absolutely LIT and her and the dancers gave the energy. And I was at the Dammn Arkansas show. Y’all KNOW East and West Coast she gonna go OFF!!

    THE OFFICIAL STATE OF THE WORLD 2 TOUR THREAD

    Just attended the show in Rogers, AR.. OMG y’all it is so good. As amazing as 2017 was, this show is NEXT LEVEL!! For one thing she does bigger chunks of the songs, and the dancers are even more on point. Little extras like mixing in the Kaytranada remix during IF (🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾) and doing more of the iconic dance moves just totally take it higher. So glad I was able to make it 😍😍😍

    The Official #EssenceFest Thread

    So I originally bought tickets for both #SOTW Essence Fest and Austin, but had to cancel everything because my Dad is sick and in the hospital. Not sure if i’ll be able to make any of the tour right now. But just seeing this epic setlist, and video of Janet honoring her father in such a beautiful way, my heart is full, and my spirit is lifted. She’s hands down one of the greatest artists of our time and i’m So thankful to even have existed during her incredible career. She continues to teach, to inspire, to excite and to endure. Thank you So much Janet. Praying that I will be able to see the show somehow. 😭

    Cissy Houston shades Janet in 1991

    I couldn't know the true intentions, but like any group of friends, it could also have just been a down moment in their friendship, or just talk. At the end of the day, the only reason we even care about it now is because it was caught on camera. But it's probably not a true representation of their whole relationship.

    Cissy Houston shades Janet in 1991

    Ah yes... every diva seems to do this. Though important to note that Whitney herself had nothing negative to say about Janet, she just reacted to what her mother said. I know at this point, Janet was at her very hottest (just wrapping up the Rhythm Nation era), while Whitney's latest release, while stellar, hadn't brought in the numbers of her previous two albums. So it doesn't surprise me to hear others throwing shade at the Queen of New Jack Swing during the height of her reign.

    RadarOnline...Paris vs. Janet over Funeral costs

    Gotta call out misogyny on this. The media is always trying to play up some feud between Paris and Janet. Why?? Because they are PROMINENT WOMEN. Really sick of this kind of crap.

    "Made For Now" Single Dropping Soon

    And imma take issue with this for a second as well... Y’all know DAMMN we’ll that if Whitney had come out today, she would’ve been credited as songwriter for ever song she ever touched. Nowadays, you slap one word or one note on the song, and you get a co-writing credit. Let’s be honest... Whitney “The VOICE” Houston deserved to be credited on her songs. Can’t NOBODY put the sheer emotion and depth that she put on a record to this day.

    "Made For Now" Single Dropping Soon

    Tommy Parker (aka Tommy Mclendon, T. Lumpkins) is on this track, and that right there is enough to get me excited. Not only is he a humongous fan of both Jimmy and Terry, but he co-wrote Make Me for Janet, and several of the tracks on Unbreakable. And let’s be honest... if you’re a TRUE fan of Janet’s, you’re probably a true fan of Jimmy and Terry, which means you also know that they are the absolute standard of good will, leadership, respect and setting a good example. They may not have produced that particular track, but I can guarantee you they heard it and gave it their blessing. Tommy is being guided by them, and if Unbreakable is any indication, he’s learned a lot.

    Janet’s Dad in poor health

    Prayers for Joseph Jackson... “ Joe Jackson is dying. The 89-year-old retired talent manager's son, Jermaine Jackson, claims his dad "does not have long" left to live but banned his family from visiting him after taking a "turn for the worse" earlier this week. Jermaine, 63, told DailyMail.com: "He's very, very frail, he doesn't have long. The family needs to be by his bedside - that's our only intention in his final days." Joe has been ill for some time but gave verbal instructions not to allow his family access his medical records or visit him in recent days, but after four frustrating days of negotiations, his wife Katherine Jackson, daughters Rebbie and Joh'Vonnie, and granddaughter Yashi Brown finally saw Joe in Las Vegas, Nevada on Tuesday (19.6.18)” https://www.iol.co.za/entertainment/celebrity-news/international/michael-jacksons-dad-joe-jackson-is-dying-report-15585301

    😔
  14. The fact that we're even able to compare the one and only Ms. Jackson at 52 to former eras in her 20s and 30s?? Just let that sink in for a second. She is so phenomenal!! 😍👑😍

    I just know he hasn't tweeted for a few weeks. Joe is pretty active on Twitter, that's how I keep up with him.

    "Made For Now" Single Dropping Soon

    As a fan and semi-professional musician, I'm just happy to welcome new music from Ms. Jackson. Regarding when the release occurs, I'm sure it depends on what goals she has for her and her team. Are they looking for a chart topper, or mainly something that fans can obsess over and enjoy during the tour? If it's the latter, it doesn't really matter when she drops the track. But if they want to claim some good chart action, the best time to drop is late Thursday into Friday, with a smidge of advanced notice (sound snippet, IG post, etc.) so super fans and #JanFam can gather the troops for streaming events, etc. And if the single is released say, Thursday or Friday, the video should be released not long after, but in the same tracking week to maximize chart position. Of course who knows if there is a video, but just FYI. I strongly suspect that Black Radio will be on board, but some digital/ streaming strategy can help in other areas. And I KNOW that fans will want to do it!! And hey, a Number 1 surely couldn't hurt... after all, Ms. Jackson's got a label to support!

    Do we consider this a new ‘era’ for Janet?

    "Now wait now... I'll start the era when I'm ready to start this new era". *grabs era* "K, I'm ready" 😜

    Do we consider this a new ‘era’ for Janet?

    This reminds me of when Janet was at the BET awards. No Sleeep has JUST dropped, and she received that special award. In her speech, she Jimmy Terry and her family, using the phrase “your love is Unbreakable”. Hints are definitely being dropped right now.

    Rumor Mill: Janet Ready For Baby #2 According to OKMagazine

    If she is, that is her business. BUT I'm thankful that our stars now live at a time in which they can truly have it all. I'm not pressed about rumors, but IF Ms. Jackson wanted to have another child, who's to say couldn't do so and ready her new album at the same time? She had Eissa, and was back on tour 8 months later. And just suppose that a new album were to drop, with a music video or two already shot, and a successful summer tour completed. Take a break and let fans enjoy the album/doc/project/whatever else is being cooked up, have the baby, and go on tour later. Plus, if she were to let fans know this (not that it's necessarily our business to know), we would TOTALLY understand, just like the last time.
  22. What I love about this is it is giving her a forum to speak directly to young people and up-n-coming artists. And they make up some kind of award every year on this show. it's Janet's TURN!!!
