    • 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.

Though it's obviously shitty placing.............................at least she made the list.....(cough) Rolling Stone Assholes (cough), so at least they give SOME credit...unlike RS....who can't bother reviewing the album nor adding it to the list where it belongs.

The fact that they didn't even bother to review it just clearly means they're pressed about something imo. Considering they reviewed a non-factor like Selena Gomez the following week.

Having said that - they did post an article about it the week after with Jimmy? I dunno. It's weird they didn't review it.

Right, whatever the reason, they aren't giving Janet her props (as usual).........seems personal....and like they have amnesia over who gave them their most iconic cover. #DoneBumpedTheyHead

what I dont understand is why can't Janet and some other Black chick both be great in their own lanes? Why is it in the Black community we hate on each other like it can only be one? I get Beyonce is Tina Turner in 2015, but after all the respect she has paid Janet, why the hate? White folk dont discard their people and say Lady Gaga replaces Madonna...they dont....so why can't Janet just be Janet?  stop comparing....Janet is an artist/entertainer/businesswoman/philanthropist/actress in her OWN right

They fucking tried it with that placement. UNBREAKABLE was so much better than so many albums on that list. Fucking Fetty Wap placed higher than Janet?

Fuck this list.

I'm sorry but that's factually incorrect, every race does that to their own,and we all do it to everyone with new generation artists, it's a pet peeve of mine the whole "we are the only race that does this to each other, and we don't ever like to give credit for this or that", that's the pop culture landscape of the last 60 years for female entertainers, hell Mariah's going through that right now with Ariana Grande an on a obvious & rather insulting level. The diva 30+'s attention and relevance will fade and they'll bing in a 16-20yr old who's supposedly what the Diva use to be, so lets pay more attention to her! They were doing that to Madonna & Gaga too, that's the business it's only about black artists & entertainers when it's what you pay the most attention to. The comparisons won't ever stop, they should be taken less seriously & literal, I for 1 definitely feel the comparisons too early on in the career (ala Ciara & Ariana) can do more damage than help if you don't live up to the artist's you're being compared to's legacy.

Janet Jackson's comeback was one of music's most gratifying stories in 2015. Unbreakable was refreshing and sultry, a forward-thinking statement of purpose from one of pop's most important 20th Century figures. In some ways, the triumphs of Unbreakable were inevitable: Nipplegate was, thankfully, gone from pop culture's rearview mirror, and she was reunited with her golden-era collaborators Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. But instead of simply rehashing the sighing bluster and booming beats of her biggest hits, Jackson applied her knowledge of what makes a great song and, more crucially, of what makes herself tick. The warm, expansive tracks, even as they took on the world's ills ("Shoulda Known Better") and questioned her own place in it ("Take Me Away"), felt invitingly lived-in. The triumphant closer "Gon' B Alright" caps off the album with a knowing nod in the form of a joyous group dance toward whatever trials life might bring next. M.J.

Nah they still fucked up for lumping it as simply R&B when they like every other publication and listener recognized it's so much more than R&B. It's her most eclectic album since AFY, it deserves to be recognized as such, but hey I guess its some recognition... that's cute for them:coffee:
