    • 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.

There was no point, because what I said has been stated clearly. Your arguments are stupid. Your reasoning is stupid. The support of your arguments is stupid. Your position on this topic is stupid. Add that all up and what do you get???

This made me emotional :(. The fact you don't like Beyonce and defended her. That's big :wub:

I'll take Bey any day over Adele. I don't really like Bey but I don't hate her. I have a few songs of hers on my itunes. I'd never buy a full album. I used to actually like her until she started getting too cocky and stealing so much, it was just a turn off for me.

hey what do you (and you guys) think about this performance when (again) Beyonce was clearly lip-synching on the Grammys, with little-to-no dancing/choreography..

my personal favorite part is at 3:07 when she forgot she wasn't singing live and pulled the mic away too soon! ?

FUXKING HILARIOUS! ??

What's your guys' favorite part?

Now what was that y'all were saying about her being able to "outsing Adele any day"...?! ?

During the eras that Janet was most profound, she didn't have to rub in people's faces that she was a strong powerful black woman, she just WAS!

Only a sexist would praise someone for their "not-so-in-your-face" feminism and denigrate another black woman for being what they perceive to be as "cocky."

 

 

 

 

 

And only an idiot would harp on someone lipping when their favorite artist isn't known for ever singing live.

You disregarded a live mic feed as lip syncing so what is there to say to someone so delusional? No shade.

Huffington is saying TRUTH, every word. So glad they arent pandering, and they aren't negatively dragging her either, their dragging her & the Grammys critics with facts.

There’s long been speculation about just how much Beyonce goes into her music, and it’s unlikely to go away as long as her songs continue to be written by committee (several Lemonade tracks are credited to at least a dozen songwriters).

:lmao: WHERE ARE THE LIES

I 100% agree with Huff. :lmao: at them bringing up that she hasn't had a hit single in 10 years 

Tired of the Beyhive making excuses for Beyoncé as if her album was a force to be reckon with. With zero hit singles, a warehouse full of writers, and very little substance behind lyrics, it's no wonder she didn't win AOTY 

And the race card is the only card they can play bc the album isn't Grammy AOTY worthy. 

Adele's album maybe "dull" & "boring" and a "repeat" of what she's done but at least she has substance... lyrics that are relatable no matter what race, gender, and/or sexual orientation

HuffPost just took us to the salon, cause I see yo No Lye Relaxer is fresh! And they said everything, best was to let go of the gimmickry! Getting rid of that, and a album with no more than 5-10 writers (opposed to entire songs 20+) would be a real surprise.

My favorite part too:

Then there is the alleged political statement of Lemonade. While Beyonce deserves credit for encouraging black women to be proud of their black beauty, she had to go and muddle that powerful message with irrelevant lines about having sex and eating at Red Lobster later. It dilutes the power of her social statement, and lyrically, it's awkward as hell.

Beyonce, listen to 1999's Album of the Year, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (and take a closer look at what your Grammy-anointed sister Solange has been doing). If you ever dare to release an album that is a stunning a singer-songwriter showcase - one that doesn't need a TV special, a "surprise" release, and a fake tabloid scandal to grab attention - Album of the Year is as good as yours.

I agree with it all but those made me praise dance at that truth!

While I think she was in contention for AOTY and I was somewhat surprised that she didn't get it, the hive seem to have the biggest sense of entitlement I have seen. They think because Beyonce is ad big ad she is, the industry has to worship the ground she walks on. Now it's saying that it doesn't  necessarily  have to and the rug is pulled from under the Hive's feet.

I don't agree or disagree that she was snubbed. If she was snubbed, it was mostly because she campaigned for the award harder than the others. Outside of that, I don't  think that the album was significantly  better than any of the other nominees. There were many people that like 25 better than Lemonade.

Also a Grammy is a Grammy is a Grammy. Her not having the AOTY will not be some red flag to her legacy, but those 22 will be seen as a highlight.

No matter how big you are, not everything is gonna fall on your lap, and it's not the end of the world.

Lemonade was better than 25. I'm sorry you prefer basic but a spade is a spade. Lemonade was INTENTIONALLY made for Black women. 

And once again you don't need to have a hit single to win AOTY. Look at Beck.

But the album that won AOTY was made for for everyone....

True, but its like a this or that. Monster hit or Massive artistry with whats on the album. A few get by with neither, but most of the winners going back to Stevie had at least 1 of the 2.

You disregarded a live mic feed as lip syncing so what is there to say to someone so delusional? No shade.

Technically, they were talking about a number one song. Let's not pretend like Top 10 singles aren't hits. It's also worth noting that the writer of that article has a history of being as impartial about Beyoncé as you do with the iPhone.

I'll tell you what I'm tired of. The Recording Academy itself defines a Grammy as an award representing artistic or technical achievement. They even specifically state that it is not based on sales or chart positions. We all know that's garbage, but the argument is used very selectively where Beyoncé is concerned. It's not enough that she's at her artistic peak 20 years into her career, now suddenly the Grammys can only validate such creativity with a "monster single" or "less costumes." Save it. As for this committee of songwriters, the article selectively pointed out that several songs on Lemonade are credited to at least a dozen writers, but it made no mention of the number of sampled works, some of which recognise multiple names for a single interpolated line. This article dissects the argument perfectly, but if you'd prefer the TL; DR: a writer count, high or low, doesn’t determine whether a piece of art is good or bad. It’s simply a reflection of how many people are getting credit (and money) for the work. Should that lead to an argument on the artistic merits of sampling, let me point out that it didn't stand in the way of Daft Punk, OutKast, Santana, U2 or Lauryn Hill (to name a handful) collecting AOTY. And your point about lyrical substance is hilarious given Taylor Swift is literally a two-time winner.

I viewed this board with fresh eyes recently after a lengthy break, and for whatever reason, I took a look back through Beyoncé's official thread and also Grammy discussions from previous years, and nothing has changed. She is still the only artist that agitates some of you to such an extent that you simply abandon all logic and reason to make what you think is a point. That same misguided fury has now spread throughout this base onto Twitter where a slew of wrong or foolish shit is posted on a daily basis in what must be an impassioned attempt to look as stupid and as misinformed as possible. Beyoncé didn't win, but she's not the loser here.
