      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.

Armond White book “The Resistance: Ten Years of Pop Culture That Shook The World”

47) Armond White on Janet Jackson’s The Rhythm Nation Compilation (music videos) -1991-

“Last Year, Janet Jackson took the music video crown from Madonna–a fact made clear in A & M Records’ video release The Rhythm Nation Compilation, but especially by the sexy music vieo for Janet Jackson’s latest single, “Love Will Never Do (Without You)”…Janet Jackson saves the form with a perfectly revolutionary video artwork.”

Sex Songs: The 69 Steamiest Tunes ... Ever

18. Janet Jackson, 'If'

If this 1993 hit was just about having a crush, then 'Single White Female' was just about having a roommate. Janet (Ms. Jackson, if you're nasty) gives us the details on her fantasy play-by-play, including what she would do to her man's "smooth and shiny." We're sure the object of her affection cashed in immediately. -- KD

Sexiest Lyric: "You on the rise as you're touchin' my thighs and/Let me know what you like/ If you like I'll go/Down da down down down da down down"

Alas, no sketch pairing Jackson with Amy Poehler's vicious caricature of brother Michael. Still, early estimates from NBC suggest that Jackson's appearance gave ''SNL'' its highest rating in 13 months.

Celeb Scandals: The 25 Biggest Since 1982

1. NIPPLEGATE

The Super Bowl is as American as apple pie. Flashing a bare breast on live TV during the Super Bowl, however, is not. That was quickly proven during the big game's Feb. 1, 2004, halftime show when Justin Timberlake tore off part of duet partner Janet Jackson's leather bodice, revealing a nipple-shield-adorned boob. With nearly 90 million people watching, many of them children, the incident became a flash point for family-values groups who had long argued that Hollywood was polluting kids' minds — and now they had proof. Timberlake apologized for the ''wardrobe malfunction,'' as did Jackson, who claimed the tearaway bra was ''an accident.'' But that did little to stop the ensuing tempest in a C-cup, which continued to make headlines throughout the year. The FCC issued CBS a $550,000 fine, politicians threatened bills that would ratchet up the punishment for future offensive broadcasts, and frightened radio stations began deleting naughty titles — e.g., Elton John's ''The Bitch Is Back'' — from their playlists.

CAREER IMPACT: MAJOR CBS would only allow Jackson and Timberlake to attend the Grammys if they apologized on the broadcast (she declined; he agreed). Jackson was also forced to withdraw as the lead of a planned ABC biopic on Lena Horne, and the Super Bowl controversy didn't help her 8th studio CD, Damita Jo (released weeks later), which sold just under a million. For reasons oft debated (racism? sexism? sheer popularity?), Timberlake emerged from the bra-haha unscathed.

Occupation: Singer, Actress

Janet Jackson

big_janet-jackson-3.jpg

Janet Jackson steamrolled her way into the '90s on a string of hits that dated back to her 1989 release, Rhythm Nation 1814, making it the only album to ever produce No. 1 hits in three separate calendar years ('89, '90, and '91). She inked a blockbuster deal with Virgin Records and dropped Janet, the project that found her fully transformed into what she was always destined to be: a one-named superstar. Sexual liberation followed, including an unforgettable topless appearance on the cover of Rolling Stone. Her stage show expanded (read: more sex!) and Janet simply Micheal-ed the game, getting more money and turning more heads with every year. Whatever, she's a legend. She's clearly got daddy issues. (She's a Jackson.) She's paid. And you wanna hit. Don't worry. We do, too. (What up, JD??)

VIBE Vixen Presents: The 45 Greatest Male Bashing Anthems

MBA%20Janet%20Jackson%20Son%20Of%20A%20Gun.jpg

23) Janet Jackson Feat. Carly Simon “Son Of A Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)” (2001)

Album: All For You

Ball Buster: “Sweatin’ me but I’m not your type/You think you irk me, and you’re so right/I’d rather keep the trash and throw you out/Stupid bitch in my beach house”

Who knew little Penny could go so hard? Flipping Carly Simon’s classic “You’re So Vain” into a knockdown drag-down anthem, the soft-spoken Janet puts on her boxing gloves and even drops in a few “motherfuckers” here and there. The best part? She’s talking, not singing, these verses in a tone that sounds like she’s definitely gonna cut you.

http://www.vibe.com/photo-galleries/vibe-vixen-presents-45-greatest-male-bashing-anthems/22

This should definitely be top ten. :rolleyes:

Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Albums of the 90s

58. Janet Jackson, janet.

As Black-American music royalty, Janet Jackson has had every significant moment of her growth recorded. With Control, she had her cotillion. With Rhythm Nation 1814, she announced her political and sexual awakening. And with Janet. , she celebrated becoming an erotic being. using soul, rock and dance elements, as well as opera diva Kathleen Battle, Janet unleashed her most musically ambitious record, guided, as always, by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Tow albums before, she'd innocently sung, "Let's wait awhile." Now she boldy purrs, "If I was your girl, oh the things I'd do to you!/I'd make you call out my name/I'd ask who it belongs to!" Like Gloria Steinem with a six-figure video budget, she shows young women a way to have their sexual freedom and their dignity, to have their cake and be eaten, too.

Slant Magazine

Best Singles of the 90s

22. Janet Jackson, "If." If janet. found Miss Jackson asserting her right to have an orgasm the likes of which would dwarf your puny muscular spasms, the ruthless dance rock of "If" is the proof. Aided immeasurably by a Supremes sample filtered enough to suggest a cybernetic logjam, "If" ain't no question mark. It prowls, marking its prey, staking its claim, going down-duh-down-down-down-duh-down-down on you while playing with your mind. More metallic than carnal, "If" really peaks when it reaches the sweet harmonies of the bridge before plunging headlong into the crunching paradox of the chorus. If she was your girl, she might treat you better than she claims. But you wouldn't sweat half as much. EH

83. Michael Jackson & Janet Jackson, "Scream." Jackson was reportedly a huge fan of his sister's work with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, specifically "Rhythm Nation." So it's no surprise that he would hire the duo to produce for him; what's surprising is that it took so long. "Scream" is an unrelenting techno-funk workout with the warm, layered harmonies both siblings were known for sheathed beneath clipped, sterile synth beats and swaths of metal guitar. This was nothing new for Michael, being similar in style to his single "Jam," but he adopted an even angstier tone here, spitting out lyrics aimed at the media's handling of his sex abuse trial with a vitriol not previously heard. The only moment of release comes during Janet's hushed vocal bridge, in which she demurely marvels in disgust at "all the injustice." SC

100 Greatest Dance Songs

21. Janet Jackson, "Rhythm Nation" (1989). The sonic playroom that Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis built for their pet wind-up pop star Janet Jackson and her do-over debut Control already sounded like the Minneapolis sound declaring war on quiet storm R&B. So it was almost a given that the junior high ethics lessons of the Rhythm Nation project ended up literalizing Jam-Lewis's drum programming-as-armament. "We are a nation with no geographic boundaries," Janet drones without a trace of humor, "pushing toward a world rid of color lines." Get the point? Good, now let's dance with nunchucks. "Rhythm Nation" snatches an indelible sample of Larry Graham's "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" bass licks, but shifts Sly Stone's guarded political optimism into a direct attack on the 1980s' culture of indifference. And if the song's music video inadvertently recalled the spirit of Leni Riefenstahl, its vision of unity through mandatory multiculturalism reverses the Nazi demagogue's ideology. Janet's interest in the state of the world only lasted for about half an LP side, but maybe that's part of the statement. First beat justice into the system, then lean back and let the escapades begin. EH

69. Janet Jackson, "The Pleasure Principle" (1986). It's human instinct to seek pleasure and avoid pain, but Freud argued that the matured ego "no longer lets itself be governed by the pleasure principle, but obeys the reality principle," or, more simply, defers said pleasure. Janet Jackson certainly followed this paradigm in her musical career, delaying her sexual satisfaction until the very end of her first two blockbuster albums and not fully submitting to it until 1993's janet. While the title track of her 1986 breakthrough Control found the singer taking the reigns of her professional life, the album's final single, "The Pleasure Principle," found her taking control of a personal relationship by refusing to settle for loveless materialism: "What I thought was happiness was only part time bliss," an all-grown-up Janet sings. Written and produced by one-time Prince keyboardist and Jam & Lewis cohort Monte Moir, the entire song parallels a fleeting love affair with a ride in a limousine, while the synths bump like busted shock absorbers and the electric guitar screeches like rubber on pavement. Janet (vis-à-vis Moir) invokes "Big Yellow Taxi," a song she would more blatantly call on for 1997's "Got 'Til It's Gone," while Moir, Jam and Lewis pave over every soul tradition to put up a clanking, whirring, smashing industrial park.
