      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.

    Funky Big Band definitely is perfect for band & dancer intro. Much like All For You but then she had two more songs to follow. It would be good to see Janet & the band vibe on that.

    Janet has consistently done her greatest hits but neglected soooooooooooo much good music. Go Deep, 24Play, FHTF & so much more. She has to dig into her catalog. She has so much more so much more worth in the music. 
    I need her to add lesser performed tracks.

    Yea because to genuinely care about her physical well being is lower on the priority list than to applaud a return fueled by contractual obligation. Having a conversation around you is nearly impossible because you're such a antagonist. 
    Youre a cancer to anything disagreeable to you. You're seriously a ridiculous person. That shit is sick.

    I think Unbreakable is one of her best vocal albums of recent times, but in all fairness it's produced by her classic team. I think also mastered by the person who used to do it. 
    Dream Maker, Night, BHH, Unbreakable, Black Eagle, Love U 4 Life, Lessons Learned, Dammn Baby, 2 B Loved, No sleep, even Promise of You all my shit. 
    I like when she sings out. I always have...but when she gets choppy like on the verses of Take Me Away or TGF & it becomes inaudible at times I'm not crazy about that.

    I can fully agree to that. I think her being in London is working on all fronts right now for her to start off in London to make it up to Europe. She should start there because the demand is still looking to be fulfilled. So her being in London makes that an easy start and transition into work.

    I saw someone mention BET awards but did they mean Billboard? The show is on the 21st, she'll be 51, and could get great press....but it's a very quick turn around & I don't know if she's physically ready or not, but it could be interesting if that's the return.

    You weren't a fan during those times so of course you would. And no they've aged. Connotation does not trump denotation. Get the hell off the sensitive shit and grow up.

    Your voice like any of your muscles is subject to time. With time it ages. That can mean deepen or lower whatever happens to it. Matured is another word for aged.

    Yes. You are more on point with what I'm saying. Every one is so damn sensitive. Personally I don't like the verses of Take Me Away, but the chorus is good. Her higher register sounds great & at times nostalgic. But Janet singing Lonely, Twenty Four Play, even Anything is not Janet singing Lessons Learned, After You Fall etc. it's just not the same. 
    Her voice has aged & I don't think it sounds powerful and grown woman it's just a maturity. It's deeper that's fine & natural not condescending. Now her background vocals on Unbreakable sounds very nostalgic. Also Janet & Bruno on a song like Alright/LWNDWY would have been great. Her vocals then could have worked.

    I did not say do a Q&A. As a matter of fact I said turn off the comment section. I said they control the conversation by discussing their process and project. Even show them in the studio. So I really don't know what you're talking about. And if it's done you'd be tuned in. So bull shit lol

    we don't see it the same and no one said drastic but it's noticeably different and that's about the point. It's not 20 years ago.

    Well she disagrees with you. She specifically said her voice has deepened. Jimmy mentioned her nervousness because she recognized she had changed. So we can agree to disagree. Unbreakable she sounded good the best she's sound in years but nonetheless it's a different between now and years ago.

    I agree it needed visuals. I always thought the prayer in Dream Maker at the end is the perfect opening for  Night. 
    One of her best visual concepts for tour was RWU tour. It was very honest, deep, & subliminal. It talked about what she's faced in the industry and where she was at the time.

    I would love for Dream Maker to be added. I really love that song.

    why are you naming 20 year old examples? And how can she have released albums & songs recently but we can't know her vocal range? Her voice has undoubtedly changed. Not to mention Jimmy said that when she got back in the studio she was nervous about her vocals because even she felt she was a little rusty. It happens. 
    You skipped 20 YO & Discipline to name DJ. DJ is the oldest of those projects. Unbreakable had some songs that felt very nostalgic vocally and sounded good. It's not about keep up for me it was how would they sound together. Now if you argued her IGL vocals live give a good example you have a more solid point.

    I'll take well traveled because it's much more recent. Funky Big Band to me is perfect for a Band intro.

    There tacky when they're done wrong. No disrespect to any idealistic fans but Janet has done tacky things in her career. This can be done better. Yes. She is a much better speaker. Interviews work, and so will the other promo. She doesn't have to attack one angle. Go for multiples. 
    Its not a comparison to the person it's an example of a method. Petty people become fearful of those conversations. We're just talking to relate.

    I agree. The only thing I'd change is that she needs to control her image but release HER OWN content. I use this person ONLY as an example but the way Beyoncé has curated some of her promo and personal content would work for Janet. It would be growth for Janet. She can be as personal as she wants and impersonal as she wants. She doesn't have to wait for tv interviews. That's an old format. She can do some social media live stuff in the studio and with jimmy/terry. Disable the comments so ppl can't say rude shit & have them speak about the creative process. 
    Her promo just needs to be smarter, cleaner, more consistent.

    There was no social media and constant replays of the shows via (memes, repost, etc.) Artist were less accessible overall. But even then artist pulled back from shows at a certain point. Like MJ & even Janet with exception of something like an SNL.

    Honestly I can't say, besides the fact that it gives them exclusivity. Lesser access means higher demand. It's like an achievement. You put in work, doing the circuits solidifying your fan base & then you back up. You start to control your content. 
    If you always get to see artists performing on night/daytime tv when you hear they're doing an award show - it's less exciting because you've seen these performances countless times. Also they become larger acts & those shows don't offer the same production value or "grandness" as award shows do. It's limited. One thing I think that kinda sucks is artist do less interviews & kinda lack profound moments like they did in the past.

    Bruno can really sing & so could Luther but Janet with Luther was at least 20+ years younger, her voice was a lot higher & her vocal range was more flexible. She's matured since then & her range has deepened.
