      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.

    the point is people care enough to respond to any statement made about it. If you consider yourself a real fan you care enough to follow up. Move on.

    DJ is a really good album & 20YO is my least favorite it felt like an obligation she had to fulfill to get out of her contract. What I wish Janet would have done is provided an edgier album that fought back against the unfair shit she faced. I get it though  she's a black woman in the industry who gets demonized for things white counterparts gets praised for. So it's a catch 22 her career was already falling a part due to it & being attacked from every angle. 
     
    RWU Tour was EXCELLENT! Maybe my favorite tour.  I actually feel the number ones tour was kinda weak because it really was just the RWU Tour with 2-4 songs added and subtracted but LITERALLY the same vocal tracks, laughs, & staged moments. But the Billboard awards performance of 06 was fire!
    A lot of shaky ground but it happens.

    Be careful saying that it might make some uneasy 🙄 
     
    Hopefully she's looking at monitors to critique some visuals. I have a prediction that the BTS doc will really be the interludes of the show. With him saying it will show in concept her journey to where she is today. He also mentioned on IG live some "tear jerking" ending but that's subjective so take it with a grain of salt. He said that about SKB last time.

    Gil's Talks Tour With ET
    http://www.etonline.com/news/223963_janet_jackson_create_gil_duldulao_talks_state_of_the_world_tour_secrets_post_baby_body/
    EXCLUSIVE: Janet Jackson's Creative Director Gil Duldulao Talks Tour Secrets & Singer's Enviable Post-Baby Bod
    Janet Jackson is planning to take fans on "an emotional journey through choreography." 
    ET chatted with the mastermind behind the singer's upcoming State of the World Tour, creative director Gil Duldulao, over the phone on Wednesday, who shared behind-the-scenes secrets about rehearsals, show planning and Jackson's enviable post-baby body. 
    WATCH: Happy Mother's Day to These First-Time Celebrity Moms!
    Duldulao has been working with Jackson for over a decade and says that her work ethic hasn't changed "at all" since giving birth to her first child, son Eissa, in January. In fact, he says the 51-year-old singer is working harder than ever to make this tour a success. 
    "Despite how life has changed for her… if anything, she is even more dedicated and more focused for some reason," Duldulao explains. "That's just the professional she is. If she loves what she does -- and she loves being onstage -- the work ethic doesn't change. I think just timing of the day is different, but other than that, she's still going strong." 
    Duldulao tells ET it's currently "crunch time" in rehearsals, as the 56-city tour officially kicks off Sept. 7 in Lafayette, Louisiana. Janet and her team have been cracking down on the details, spending 16 hours or more in the studio to perfect the choreography, staging and transitions.

    So, what exactly are Jackson and her dancers doing during that timeframe? Duldulao walks us through a typical rehearsal day: 
    Morning.
    "We arrive at the studio, we stretch, we work out with our trainer for about an hour to get their stamina up, keep them in good fitness. We do a lot of staging, because me as a creative director, I'm always questioning everything I do… it has to be perfect. So, there's a lot of staging going on." 
    Afternoon.
    "Then, I like to see the show full out, back to back. I do this thing called 'honorary,' where I call out one dancer to do a whole number by themselves in front of me, Janet and the crew. We film them on videotape so they can watch and correct themselves. 
    We have a lot of notebook time, where [the dancers] are writing notes every day. I give them, or my assistant will give them, a lot of notes for staging. In the meantime, my assistant is working with Janet on the side." 
    Night.
    "After all note taking, we run the show again. Eventually, and we're in this phase right now, I'll run it from top to bottom -- an hour-and-45-minute show maybe five times in a row. And we repeat that process until everything is perfect and everyone's clear. Then, I know some of the dancers go home, Janet as well, and they get on the treadmill after rehearsals at like 11 p.m. at night. So, it never stops!"

    All of that dancing explains why Jackson looks so amazing just seven months after her and her estranged husband, Wissam Al Mana, welcomed their first child together. Duldulao tells ET that in addition to their daylong rehearsals and working out, the Gary, Indiana, native credits a healthy diet for her trimmed down figure. 
    "She is dedicated," he reveals. "I mean, she is really strict with her diet." 
    Duldulao agrees that Jackson looks incredible, and is encouraging her to go for those "dream" tour costumes. 
    "Honestly, I told her -- I was like, 'You're skinny. You're really thin,'" he gushes. "So, if anything, I think we're going to have to have some seamstresses on hand to bring [the costumes] in more. Because she's losing weight every day. I'm telling her, 'Girl, you're skinny. Are you sure [you don't want to wear this]?'"

    Although everything is going smoothly, Duldulao admits every tour comes with a challenge. As many of Jackson's fans can recall, she postponed her Unbreakable World Tour indefinitely last year when she discovered she was pregnant. 
    Duldulao's challenge for State of the Worldwas starting the show from scratch, this time with "free-r, stronger, more powerful, clean" choreography. 
    "I had to go hard and create something so new with what we had," Duldulao explains. "Whether it be content, video, staging, different songs in the set list and playing with different sounds, certain sections with the musical director, costume changes… but we did it, I did it! The fans clearly will get a show. It's not going to be the Unbreakable show. No, they're going to get the State of the World Tour show." 
    "And I think when it comes to motherhood, you'll see how [Janet] has matured as a woman onstage," he adds. "You'll see a lot of her journey through concept and creative direction on how and what takes place in certain times of her life to get to this place [she's at] now, and I think that's beautiful."

    The same person who acts annoyed when her dancer looks in the camera of a music video Janet Damita Jo Jackson. 
    Stop simplifying to selling tickets. It's being playful with her boyfriend who is making free promo that she is aware of & giving him clearance to do. If she doesn't want it. It doesn't happen. And it doesn't air.

    😂😂😂😂😂😂
    This shit has me cracking up!!!
     
    And absolutely. Pissed off or business woman Janet who doesn't want to do something or doesn't want something being done - MAKES SURE it is not done. VH1 Fashion Show - "If I can't sing what I want I won't perform." Matt keeps questioning her about Super Bowl information she DOES NOT want to give - "Matt you must have wax in your ears...I already said no." She does not answer.
    Yet she's annoyed about her getting some promo for free? lol Jermaine even walks through the same door he was "denied" access to by Joey lol & said - "we found another way in" lmao but you can see the same background outside the door lmao

    You can keep responding but like I said it is what it is. She was not moved lol. "You sure I didn't give you enough last night? If you want more...I'm not complaining." Oh ok, she's so annoyed she's reminding him of fucking him & how much more she'll give him. 
    She was very mad. Lmao

    I won't debate with you about it, but it's a fact that the opening act was announced as an anticipatory thing whether it moved you or not. As well as Madison Square Garden being added was treated like an exciting reveal because New York did not have their date yet. 
    Then the night she performed there Jermaine recorded it & there were clips of her talking about her excitement to be home. As she has always told the New York audience since damn near forever. If you like the idea of Janet being genuinely annoyed so be it...in just know better.

    I've state what I believe she was as much a part of this as JD was. These were teasers & I distinctively remember many fans excitedly waiting for them not knowing what & how much they'll get. She let & encouraged the teasers. Her being sassy & attitudey was all in jest.
