    • 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

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

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. 

If you're making this about race then 🛑.

It's not and no one cares what the meaning behind the photoshoot. People don't have to like it

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? 

 

I think you mostly come here to argue now....

You're not saying anything.  Janet wanted to be low-key about it  and I respected that. I think she only announce it in that manner because she was on tour. Beyonce less so but I respect that too. And no one is putting anything on her. That doesn't mean that I l care about the memes or people acting like their related, basically going far beyond basic support. 

You just want to assume stuff to draw your narrative against the fanbase.

Misquote from her wiki. I edited it to reflect the 2008 article (1.5m)

Beyoncé, despite being in or about her prime, is someone who very much so keeps her image controlled. She's not all over press until she wants to be much like Janet. She doesn't do interviews but she creates her own content. She posted a nude pregnancy shoot, had Janet been younger & of different beliefs it's quite probable she would have done something very similar.

I personally didn't find 20YO semi-nudes tacky, some did but I felt at that point she was kinda defying ageism for herself. I think Janet fans, often dislike Beyoncé's celebrity because it's reminiscent of where they feel Janet was. They come off as haters. And that's even with me feeling completely indifferent about Beyoncé.

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

who said anything about her doing nude photos. I said photos not like these

not a fan of hers but she is extremely private compared to her peers of this era. Her team does a good job of keeping her business private and at the same time allows her to engage with her fans continously.  That's where the envy comes from with this fanbase. Beyonce is everywhere yet quiet at the same time

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?  

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.

If you're making this about race then 🛑.

It's not and no one cares what the meaning behind the photoshoot. People don't have to like it

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.

Nice to see that Beyonce still has you hoes pressed. Is it really Beyonces fault that the world is so fascinated with her...? You hoes are probably jealous that Beyonce was fortunate enough to attend the Unbreakable concert before it got axed while you poor souls are reduced to looking at clips and pictures on the interwebs. You mad huh? #notimeforjanetfanshatingonajanetfan, #notonmywatch, #cashmeoutsidehowboutdat.

We would have done the same for Rihanna or any other A lister

Honestly, it's the Great Depressed and their negative nature that keep these threads going. If they don't really say nothing or at least not make it a "Trash Janet and her fans" thread, this thread would have been at the bottom of the forum.

Because media blows it up...that's the main reason why imo.

When was race ever stated? 

It's art, it's up to the audience's interpretation. :lmao: Calling it tacky, yet it's similar to other pregnancy photos by celebs and you say nothing is the exact definition of hypocrisy silly goose. :lmao:

Ummm, arguing is what I do for a living. :umm: And I've been coming here to argue since 2008. So spare me.

You've completely contradicted yourself here. What did Beyonce do differently from Janet other than a five or six photos? Don't forget Janet did a photoshoot with People. Both artists announced their pregnancies to engage support from their fans. And both fan bases discussed and celebrated the same way. The only problem in the difference - Beyonce.

^ You know another A-lister who announced her pregnancy?

And for the last time, I have little problem with her announcement or the shoot she did, I mostly supported others right to be critical.

Not female, but Justin Timberlake announced his the exact same way Beyonce did. Kelly Rowland announced hers, along with Kerry Washington, J. Lo, Halle Berry, and Natalie Portman. But again, the only time it was a problem? Beyonce.

Spare me the stipulations. Regardless of what list they're on, it doesn't detract from your hypocrisy. And if I may recall, Kim K/Kenya, Ciara/Russell, John/Chrissy, Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway, and the boy from 1D all had pregnancy announcements via social media in the last year or so. Only time it was a problem? Beyonce.

The level of media coverage Beyonce is getting, and this thread a testament of such. 

 

what does that have to do with being envious? blac chyna got crazy media coverage for her pregnancy and i dont even know what she does. beyonce is part of current pop culture, therefore people are gonna discuss her,especially when its all over social media. are janet fans not allowed to discuss other people/events thats popular?  me saying beyonce pictures are tacky has nothing to do with janet, if she would have done a photo shoot like that her ass would be tacky too.
