    • 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.

Beyonce makes me appreciate Janet's seclusion

86 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

That boderline creepy instagram picture surrounded by flowers and that odd virginal veil over her head as a way of "announcing to the world" that beyonce is pregnant/...

 

who does she think she is?

it's tacky and she needs to get over herself.

It makes me appreciate the fact that Janet wants no intrusions and wishes to remain as private as possible, with only her music being her public endeavours. - classy!

I think that Beyonce is trying to prove to the world that she is indeed pregnant. So many people believe that she used a surrogate the first time. Which I always believed she carried her first child. A lot of Beyonce fans claim she isn't bothered by those rumors but this photo shoot proves she cares and she cares a lot. She is damn near nake in all of them. Beyonce is trying to reach that Mj level of fame and this is just another way to do it. Not gonna lie the first pic was okay but when I saw all the others I was a bit turned off.  She is making her pregnancy a spectacle. 

 

Had Janet not been on tour....I don't think we would have even known about the baby until after he was born.

I wanted to comment along the lines of that but that would just fuel the fire

Yes... some people are so obsessed with Beyoncé they don't even know it.

It's like those posts on Facebook "IDGAF IF BEYONCÉ IS PREGNANT"... bish please :lmao:

She got so much flack for being fake pregnant last time.  I dont blame her for doing it.  She is a business woman at the end of the day and lets not pretend we wouldn't be excited if janet did some sort of family photo.  Maybe not like this but some kind of photo.  Beyonce stays private too.  She is still able to control what she wants out there.

Nude photos at her age... Janet did that shit when she was 40+ and 90% of them are distasteful and kinda gross

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.:coffee:

Well I am one of those fans who found those nude spreads Janet did in the 20 Y.NO era distasteful and tacky. Janet could have kept that entire era to herself.

But those spreads were far from universal acclaimed, especially to the general public, so there's no hypocrisy. But keep trying to draw your narrative as you please....

Janet's 20 YO shoots were tacky... but not as tacky as Beyonce's photo shoot featuring Blue 

No hypocrisy.

So basically you're upset that Beyoncé's photo has gotten a great reception and lots of attention? Got it.

No hypocrisy. 

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.:asham:

Bragging about social media numbers is Alt-truth. It doesn't matter how many people double tapped an image.

Nudity has been around since the beginning of time

Beyonce isn't the first woman to do a tacky pregnant photo shoot... and won't be the last :coffee: 

I didn't say there was something wrong with her tacky photo shoot or Janet's 20 YO era. There's nothing wrong with either but both are extremely tacky... Beyoncé being more gross bc she included her daughter in it who didn't improve the awkwardness of the shoot.

i honestly don't care about what Blue has seen, heard, felt... That child ain't my concern. Bless her heart but no one here gives a shit and your narrative is a bit off topic. You went from beyonce's tacky pregnancy announcement to the psychological damage that Blue Ivy doesn't suffer from to Janet's historic Super Bowl performance. Calm ya self. There's no hypocrisy 

It all boils down to, one was to promote a product... the other... well idk what Janet was thinking. Probably thinkin "FUCK YOU" to the prude country

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.

I don't care how Blue Ivy felt and I'm not analyzing it or her feelings. I think you should reread what I said 

When did I say I didn't like Beyoncé? I'm just not delusional like her Stans. I love Lemonade.. I respect her as a performer... I'm not invested in her personal like you. Beyoncé is promoting Beyoncé... It's a brand. 

Obviously

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.^_^

Speaking of Sales.. 

Did you know... 

According World Music Awards in May 2016 'Lemonade' was at the 1.5 million units sold and was considered the top selling album of 2016.

Referencing Janet Jackson's Ebony cover story in 2008, 20 Y.O. sold 1.5 million units worldwide.

But sales don't matter, right?

Beyoncé is a brand just like Janet Jackson is a brand. Beyoncé was promoting her brand. If you don't understand then oh well. 

Janet Jackson's pregnancy announcement was posted by MSM. With a lovely photograph. That's not tacky. There are countless celebrities and non- celebrities who have posted pregnancy photos without it being tacky. If you loved it then cool 👍🏾

Did you know... 

Janet Jackson's '20 Y.O.' sold 2x the amount of Beyonce's 'Lemonade'. 

According World Music Awards in May 2016 'Lemonade' was at the 1.5 million units sold and was considered the top selling album of 2016.

Referencing Janet Jackson's Ebony cover story in 2008, 20 Y.O. sold 3.4 million units worldwide.

But sales don't matter, right?  

In what world did 20YO sell 3.4 million? :lmao:

Where did you read or find that I was upset? I've never stated my opinion on the matter on here. But here is it:

I think most people are happy about her announcement. New life coming in this world is a good thing, especially if it's gonna be in good hands. That said some people weren't crazy over how it was handled. Beyonce knows every time she make an announcement she breaks the internet and she used the moment to do so. it's not a good or bad thing imo but some people are turned off by how calculated she was about it. Personally the maternal pics weren't my favorite but meh. I personally don't understand my some people act like they are every gonna be within 100 feet of their children anytime of their life. People need to learn to stop living vicariously through the life of others. That said, just because some people have some critical thoughts on the situation, that doesn't make anyone jealous. 

As for as Janet's pregnancy, I'm happy with the coverage. She made the announcement, the media and the public gave out blessings and she went to enjoy her pregnancy. None of this crazy stuff. Janet wanted her peace and she pulled all stops assure it.

Correct, but it's only a problem when it comes to certain celebrities.

Image may contain: 1 person, closeupbeyonce-pregnancy-announcement-02022017-

And you obviously didn't understand the photoshoot. It, at least appears to be, an homage to Greek mythology, particularly Demeter, the goddess of....wait for it....fertility.

What does this even MEAN? :lmao: She announced her pregnancy on the first day of Black History Month. She's celebrating her Blackness. The only ppl who will have a problem with it are racists.  

And your envy is showing. One artist announced their pregnancy via a YouTube video, the other on Instagram. Seems like both pregnancies were announced through social media, so both artists should receive the same treatment. The only difference? One artist is Beyonce. 

Ppl went crazy over how it was handled? How the public responds to an announcement is not the fault of the artist. So what is this "crazy stuff" you're talking about? A photoshoot?
