    • 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.

26. Janet Jackson


You’ve really got to bow down to the sexiness that is Janet Jackson. You want this any time, any place so you can hold the velvet rope while she does a little pleasure principles. See what we did there?

Complex Magazine: The 50 Best R&B Albums of the '90s

20. Janet Jackson, The Velvet Rope

 

Year: 1997
Label: Virgin

After asserting herself (and her sexuality) on janet. four years earlier, Janet Jackson returned to the studio to craft the sprawling and diverse sounds of The Velvet Rope. The level of confidence she achieved by baring her soul and psyche on janet. was nothing if not elevated here (even if the results were sometimes less memorable). The first two singles, "Got Til It's Gone" and "Together Again," paint a picture of an artist comfortable working across genres (and, you know, sampling one of the greatest singer-songwriters ever). The house record "Together Again" became her most successful single ever, but it's not even the high point of the album. The aching, sultry "I Get Lonely" takes that title. Vulnerability as confidence is a difficult tightrope to walk, and very few artists have the poise of Janet Jackson. —Ross Scarano

10. Janet Jackson, janet.

 

Year: 1993
Label: Virgin

By 1993, Janet had emancipated from the Jackson family brand. Soft-spoken yet confident on both counts—creatively, sexually—as a goddess of siren songs and chic beatbreaks. "If" is a tease; "Throb" is the hip-house tantric jam that's Janet at her most explicit: moans, groans, "damn, baby," you get the picture, yes. The album's second half takes a tender turn for ballads "Again" and "Where Are You Now," with all yearnings converging to "Any Time, Any Place" and motif denouement "Are You Still Up." janet. is a rebellious tour of Jackson's sexuality, ideology, and vulnerabilities.
1997's The Velvet Rope and 2001's All For You would rebrand Janet Jackson as sexy, immodest, and emotionally conflicted but janet. was her funkiest articulation of political disquiet, sexual urge, and unfiltered chill. "New Agenda," a sisterhood jam featuring Chuck D, is at once uncanny and flawless in its integration of Public Enemy's hip-hop edge and Janet's drive-time whisper. —Justin Charity

Its so crazy to me that she only released 2 studio albums in the 90's and was still the 2nd most successful artist of that decade. Can you imagine if she had did what Mariah did and saturated the market with music every year of the 90's?

She would have been the number 1 artist of the decade.

Which speaks to the longevity and size of Janet's hits. On Billboard's 2008 Anniversary chart, Janet was the third female behind a woman with 36 top tens, and a woman with 18 #1s with 79 cumulative weeks at #1. And for Janet to have 10 #1s with 33 cumulative weeks and 27 top tens it speaks volumes.

Rolling Stone: 20 Best MTV VMAs Opening Performances

 

 

2 | Janet Jackson's Michael Jackson Tribute (2009)
The 2009 Video Music Awards came less than two months after the death of Michael Jackson — a name so synonymous with MTV that there's an award named after him — so there was no doubt the King of Pop would be a focus of the ceremony. Madonna, his nearest peer in those halcyon MTV days, opened things up with a speech about Jackson, which then segued to a troupe dancing along with some of MJ's greatest videos. The highlight, of course, was Janet Jackson performing their dual hit "Scream" alongside video of her late brother. It was cathartic to watch the Jackson siblings dancing together onstage, Janet in the foreground, Michael on the video screen, their moves perfectly synchronized. After the miscast memorial concert at the Staples Center a month earlier, this was the King of Pop tribute America deserved.
 
6 | Janet Jackson (1990)
MTV's Video Vanguard Award is the VMA equivalent of a lifetime achievement award, and even though Janet Jackson — the 1990 recipient — had only been a substantial presence on the channel for three years, she made a huge mark with her hyper-precise dance moves, stylized videos and songs that celebrated female empowerment. Before receiving her Moonman at the 1990 show, she opened the festivities with a rip-roaring performance of her scalding Rhythm Nation 1814 track "Black Cat," showing off her ability to channel the feline sensibility before ripping open her crisp white button-down to reveal a black bra, much to the audience's surprise.

Spin Magazine: 

300 Best Albums of the Past 30 Years

 

 

 

234-Control-.jpg

 

234. Janet Jackson, Control
(A&M, 1986)

 

A blockbuster of sneaky proportions — six out of the nine tracks were top-20 hits, all but one reaching the top five — whose message declaring the former Good Times star “all grown up” was delivered loud and clear by the peerlessly whip-smart “Nasty” and “What Have You Done For Me Lately.” Even the non-singles have endured: Closer “Funny How Time Flies” was recently was recently sampled wholesale by obvious Janet acolyte Tinashe on her breakout album, Aquarius.

 

 


164-Janet.-320x320.jpg

 

164. Janet Jackson, janet.
(Virgin, 1993)

 

The cover, a cropped photo of a topless Janet Jackson with her then-husband’s hands over her breasts, was no “wardrobe malfunction.” Michael’s younger sister had celebrated personal empowerment on 1986’s precocious Control and gotten conceptual about society on 1989’s landmark Rhythm Nation 1814, all while pioneering, with producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the R&B, dance-pop, and hip-hop hybrid known as New Jack Swing.

It’s janet. — pointedly, “Janet, period” — that most informs contemporary pop, though, as Jackson (again abetted by Jam and Lewis) celebrates grown-up intimacy with an ambitious savvy to almost merit her then-unprecedented label payoutjanet. made the tradition of Marvin Gaye’s Let’s Get It On safe for Britney Spears’ Blackout, with such a broad influence that it has recently been sampled by Kendrick Lamar and covered by singer-songwriter Natalie Prass. Jackson would continue to evolve, for a time; but if janet. can ultimately show up Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl snafu, now that would be poetic justice. 

 

 

 

54-Janet-Jacksons-Rhythm-Nation-1814-320

 


54. Janet Jackson, Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814
(A&M, 1989)

 

 

Forget Michael, let’s talk about his baby sister — oops, the all-grown-up Miss Jackson. Sexy and self-assured and socially conscious, Janet’s fourth album is jaw-dropping in the sheer number of hit singles it produced. The slinky, flirty “Miss You Much” is the apex of ’80s dance-pop; “Love Will Never Do (Without You)” is an unforgettable anthem even without the iconic Herb Ritts-directed video. And though the dream team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis turns everything to gold, Jackson was under-recognized for being the album’s co-producer as well. In the process, she became as big a turn-of-the-decade star as Madonna, and maybe even a bigger one than her brother.

Ikr? I would have picked that over Goddess.(even though Goddess. is too influential not to be on the list).

 

Even though the list is flawed, it's nice to see her being included and not overlooked.

And it's Spin, so there's some credibility based on name alone. And it's instances like this that lead me to believe that Control, RN, and TVR are Janet's signature albums. I always felt "impact." was the lesser album of Janet's big 6, but these things only confirm my suspicion.

The 50 Greatest Album Covers of All Time

44. Janet Jackson, 'Rhythm Nation 1814' (1989)

Eschewing a friendly, fun image more conducive to '80s pop chart success, Janet Jackson adopted a militaristic tone for her instantly iconic black-and-white Rhythm Nation 1814 cover art. With Janet's face only partially emerging from the shadows and her body clad in a nondescript soldier's uniform, the artwork made label execs uneasy, but in the end, she was right. This cover photo perfectly complements the increased social consciousness of the album, and it would go on to become her most recognizable album art.

17. Janet Jackson

After a seven-year hiatus, Janet Jackson triumphantly returned in October with seventh chart-topping album Unbreakable -- only the third act to score No. 1 albums in each of the last four decades. The project reunited Ms. Jackson with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, the production team that formally launched her trendsetting solo career in 1986 with the No. 1 R&B single “What Have You Done For Me Lately.” Addressing social and sexual issues against a backdrop of R&B/funk/dance/rap, Jackson’s sultry vocals and sharp choreography have influenced Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé and more -- and scored the singer/songwriter a nomination this year for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Slant: The 10 Best Albums of 1993

The 10 Best Albums of 1993

Janet Jackson, janet.

It wasn't until the third album into her rhythm renaissance before Janet finally let herself explore her own heretofore underutilized pleasure principle. With two fingers, even. janet. (or Janet, Period) is absolutely off the rag. Taking a notable cue from Madonna's Erotica escapades, Miss Nasty drops trou (except on the immortal cover art) and, like a moth to a flame, burns like a fire of good times even Leni Riefenstahl-lensed, production-number socialism couldn't hope to mandate as effectively. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis may have worked with more disciplined results, but their sound never seemed so perceptibly opulent. As Christgau wrote, “The difference between hearing it on a cheap box and a booming system is the difference between daydreaming about sex and having somebody's crack in your face.” If Janet is their own personal Dietrich, janet. is their Motown-tracked Scarlet EmpressEric Henderson

Janet Jackson, <em>The Velvet Rope</em> (Virgin)

Janet Jackson, The Velvet Rope (Virgin)

"Your coochie's gon' swell up and fall apart," Janet Jackson is cautioned mid-way through The Velvet Rope. And the plethora of bondage fantasies, same-sex encounters, and masturbatory interludes contained herein would seem to indicate that it's no longer necessary to call her Miss Jackson if you're nasty. But on an album where every salacious outburst has a complementary confession of vulnerability and loneliness, the singer's heart gets the most strenuous working over. JONATHAN BERNSTEIN
