      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.

  1. iMacourey added a post in a topic Mariah Carey Fucked Up   

    This is my new favourite live performance of all time. 
    Seriously though, what the hell happened? At a stretch, she could probably be forgiven for missing her cues for Emotions if she really couldn't hear the music. But there was really no excuse for the WBT part of the performance - she clearly had no intention to sing even a single note of that live, and even her lip-syncing to that was just dropped halfway through the verses. Does she even know the lyrics to her own songs? Even her fans in the audience did a better job of lipping along to her songs!

  2. iMacourey added a post in a topic Vocally OVERRATED   

     
    When Jessica Simpson first came out she was an incredible vocalist - "I Wanna Love You Forever" is such a difficult song to sing and her vocals were awesome on that song. Her debut album wasn't great, but I thought she did a great job of separating herself from the Britney Spears and Mandy Moores of the pop world.
    But unfortunately her vocals got worse and worse with every album. With her second album she became just another Britney clone (although at least vocally she was still quite good), but by the time her third album came out (around the time her reality TV career was kicking off) she started doing this annoying breathy-thing with her voice, like she was trying to sound younger, cuter, and girlier than she was and she basically became unlistenable.

  3. iMacourey added a post in a topic What Janet album took the longest to grow on you?   

    Well All For You never grew on me at all - even now I only listen to the singles + Trust A Try & Come On Get Up. And 20YO I've never really liked.
    As for everything else in her discography (not counting her first two albums, which I admit I have never given a proper chance) I guess Discipline took a while to grow on me, as did janet. actually.
    Control, RN1814 & TVR were pretty much instant for me. And the latter two still rank amongst my favourite albums of all time, by anyone.

    I prefer to think of it as seeing Janet getting the commercial success she deserves.

    Well the album was dropping off the charts by that time and fans were longing for a follow-up to No Sleeep, so I'd say it would have been a great time to release a new video to keep interest in the project alive.

    I'm sorry. I guess with all the multiple postponements and cancellations I'm losing track of the exact dates. 
    Anyway, you know what I mean. After her shows in Japan in November there was a huge gap before the next tour dates. That would've been the perfect time to bring out a second video to keep the hype alive.

    I don't think it necessarily had to be the first, but it should have come out about six months ago when the US tour was postponed the first time.

    It's a shame they can't merge those views with YouTube so that it can count towards Billboard.

    The video is simple but well-done. It's probably my favourite Janet vid since All Nite (Don't Stop).

  13. iMacourey added a post in a topic FUCK!!!! IT'S ABOUT TO GO DOWN   

    Christina has an amazing voice, but her vocal technique isn't always that great - a lot of her belts sound very forced and strained (especially when singing live). Beyoncé, on the other hand, is more effortless with her vocals.
    Adele is good, but not a patch on the other two (vocally).

  14. iMacourey added a post in a topic Janet's Vocal Ability   

    Hmmm... I must admit I don't really think of Janet as much of a vocalist in the traditional sense. Obviously she can hold a tune but when I think about the reasons why I love Janet as an artist, her vocal ability is not something that immediately springs to mind.
    With that said though, I do love her vocals on Love Will Never Do (Without You) - particularly the way she tackles the low notes at the beginning (I think the song was originally intended to be a duet and those parts were meant to be sung by a male vocalist). I also love how her high notes toward the end blend in seamlessly with the music.
    I Get Lonely and Black Cat stand out as great vocal performances too.
    And even though I've never been a fan of the song, I remember being impressed when she hit the big note in Again when she performed it live on the All For You tour DVD.

  15. iMacourey added a post in a topic What are you listening to?   

    Safri Duo - Rise (Leave Me Alone)
    An amazing European dance track from 2004. I've had it on repeat all day today after re-watching Catalina Ponor's 2011 floor routine (she used the instrumental version for her music) on YouTube.
    I'm still gutted that neither the Romanian men's or women's teams have qualified to Rio this summer. The Olympics just won't be the same without them. Yes, I know I am outing myself as a gymnastics geek.
