    • Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      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.

    If I lived in California, I'd schedule a tour of the home, despite having no intention to buy.

  2. Impactnet. added a post in a topic "Call On Me" Video in HD..?   

    Her VEVO is a disaster for an artist of her caliber and one with such a rich videography. But as Mr. Wonder stated, she doesn't care, so we shouldn't either. In regards to Call on Me, she looks gorgeous in it, but it's underwhelming considering how much money was spent on it. She's spent way less on videos that had much more going on than just beauty shots. I understand the plot she was going for, but it was extremely underdeveloped. And it being directed by Hype Williams made it even more disappointing. Then again, by 2006, he was starting to lose his touch. His 90's and early 2000's work>>>

    It's called growth. All artists do it. The Janet of Control is not the same Janet of All For You. Janet got much more elaborate and excessive with her music and live shows as she grew as an artist. And the praise accompanied it. Stop acting like it's a problem when Beyoncé does it. And yes, you are intimidated. You're intimidated that she's only gotten bigger over the years and even more powerful. Power intimidates most to begin with, it's human nature, but a powerful woman is lethal.

    You clearly do give a fuck, which is why you responded to my comment. And I bet you'll further prove how little fucks you give by replying to this comment as well, either way I win.
    The only reason Beyoncé comes across as "pretentious" to you is because she intimidates you. The only reason you have a problem with others calling her a Queen and her appearing on stage as the Queen she is, is because she intimidates you. All of this is because she. intimidates. YOU. The fact that she needs to humble herself just to make you feel better proves how fraudulent you are. Don't worry though, you aren't the only one who feels this way. Beyoncé just has that effect on people, including some on this very forum. And don't try to alter your statement by saying "the number of writers on a song." Point is, neither she or Janet solely writes their music. Writing your own music is not a prerequisite for getting a Grammy, nor does solely writing your music suddenly make your music better. If that were the case, Aretha Franklin wouldn't have the 18 grammies that she has. The irony of all of this is you're calling Beyoncé pretentious, when you're the one who looks pretentious by mentioning the number of writers Beyoncé has on her songs and trying to discredit her for it. At the end of the day, Beyoncé is involved in the creation of all her music and she makes good music, which is the most important thing.
    And FYI, just because it's an opinion, it doesn't absolve it from being flawed. Case in Point.

    She has to humble herself to make him feel better because he feels inferior.

    If you actually watched the performance you'd know she didn't smile because she was singing two songs about a relationship that was strained and needed resolve. Why would she smile? And if you actually paid attention to the performance, you'd see that she was lamenting a relationship through spoken word and in the end she did smile because she reached a resolution. That was the point of the performance and album. When a relationship is strained, work to fix it. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. The performance is by far one of her best in storytelling. And I don't see why people or Beyoncé thinking she's a queen bothers you so much. For some, calling yourself a queen is self-empowering. Maybe you should compliment yourself seeing as how self-conscious you appear toward others receiving praise. Saying Beyoncé hasn't written a song by herself is funny considering you're on a Janet forum, (and no, Black Cat was not solely written by Janet.) Adele also has producers for all of her songs, therefore she has not solely written anything by herself either. That still doesn't stop any of them from being greats artists. Criticizing Beyoncé for not singing live is also laughable coming from a Janet fan, as well as considering the fact that Adele did sing live last night and we all saw how that went. Beyoncé can wipe the floor with Adele vocally, without question. And you paying to see someone you don't consider a great artist not once, but TWICE is foolish on your part and completely dismantles your already flawed logic.

    And your logic suggests that Adele will win simply because it sold the most, when history shows that isn't always the case. Case in Point: Beck.

    But you're not completely right. There are numerous instances of albums winning Album of the Year without being big sellers. And let's not act like majority of the albums that have won Album of the Year weren't critically-acclaimed.

    She just keeps proving why she's the greatest performer of her generation.

    Yeah, that's why Beck won AOTY in 2015, because his album was so popular.

    Lemonade has sold 2.5 million worldwide. Your figures are US sales. 20 Y.O. didn't even sell 700k in the US, and definitely not 1.5 million worldwide. And comparing an album selling 1.5 million in 2006 to one selling the same amount in 2016 is foolish. 2006 was a completely different sales climate and before digital and streaming took over. 1.5 million is a flop for someone as big as Janet and an even bigger one considering most of her contemporaries were selling much more. Context is key.
    Then why aren't threads made on here when other celebs do pregnancy shoots? Do you all love those or something? Why is it that when Beyoncé does it, it warrants a thread in the main discussion? This is why you all look like haters. This has never been done with any other celeb, yet it's done with Beyoncé.

    So this is just about Beyoncé promoting Beyoncé? Ok. With that established, all artists promote themselves, including Janet. So if that's tacky, all artists are tacky.

    For one, you don't know how Blue felt during that shoot. Secondly, Blue is a child. She has no say in where or how she takes pics. Just like when you were a child and your mom made you take pics and you did so with no questions asked. Stop using Blue as a scapegoat. You know her being in that shoot isn't the problem you all are having. You all just don't like Beyoncé and you just hate whenever she gets attention that isn't negative, which is most of the time. And what product is Beyoncé promoting? Her unborn twins are not a product. Janet, on the other hand, was promoting a product when she did those spreads, 20 Y.O. Judging by the sales, it didn't help much, but that's neither here nor there.

    So basically you're upset that Beyoncé's photo has gotten a great reception and lots of attention? Got it.
    No, 20 Y.O.'s pics were more tacky and served no purpose. She was just flaunting her body because she wanted to sell sex and wasn't shaped like a minivan like she was the year prior. Nude pregnancy shoot have been around for ages and there is nothing wrong with a pregnant woman showing her nude body. And you have to be completely naive to think Blue hasn't seen her mother nude hundreds of times. She sucked on her breast for god's sake. You act as if Blue will be traumatized by this or something. It's extremely hypocritical for Janet fans to object to a woman showing her body, given the fact that your favorite artist was blacklisted for a naked body part. And this hypocrisy on Superbowl Sunday makes it even more laughable.

    The hypocrisy is real. Beyoncé doing this pregnancy shoot is tacky, yet Janet fans don't say the same of those 20 Y.O. magazine spreads of her basically nude.
