    • 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.

So in regard to earlier speculation about dancers it looks like Kyndall and Taylor will be rejoining the tour. It makes me think that maybe they won't be changing much/anything, everything has been bought and paid for it's just a case of completing the tour.

If it's the same then this is not going to be her best tour ever as they have advertised.  I'm still not understanding why no men are dancing. Hopefully there will be.  It's like the tour was censored a bit last time for the kids but the fans are grown.

So bc two dancers are returning, it means that the tour's staying the same? Illogical much?

She changed the name and the promotion of the tour. To "think" that means the tour is just going to stay the same is idiotic

Unbreakable was a great show and her stating "it's her best tour ever" is just a slogan. Don't read too far into it... it's for hype (every tour is Janet's greatest)

Continuing with two female dancers doesn't mean anything

Janet doesn't need to sexualize her tour to be great. She doesn't need to grind and kiss some random fan on stage either.

Not necessarily, it makes sense having the same dancers, they know all the choreography already and already have costumes. I am just starting to think that fans in general jumped the gun when she announced the continuation of the tour and her separation from Wissam and automatically thought she would bring the sexier costumes and male dancers back. Just because the name has changed and there is new artwork doesn't mean the content is new. It could just be rebranding.

It's not just bc they know the choreography.

It is not a continuation of the Unbreakable tour. That's why it's called SOTW Tour. She's expected to add new music as well as change the set list based on the theme. 

You cant change theme and play the same tune

It's not a rebrand... it's a new tour

having male dancers has nothing to do with being sexualized. There are certain routines which require men.  It just seems they were cut because children were there.  The fanbase is adults.  They should get the real versions of the routines.

She hasn't done IF with a male counterpart in a while. 

Get over it. You're still gonna buy a ticket

They were cut because of her husband. He's the reason she wouldn't even touch or stand next to another man for years. Just look at how awkward she looked with J.Cole in the music video for "No Sleeep." Given such a sensual song, for her to be fully clothed and not even embrace the male counterpart on the song, it was very obvious it was because of Wissam. That video was not the Janet I know.

 

And I do agree with your point that the real versions need to return. The kids are irrelevant to me, but the new If routine is awful. There are certain routines you just don't modify: Rhythm Nation and If are two of them. If it comes to a point when she can't meet the physical demands of the original choreography, then she just need not perform it. But don't truncate the routine with choreography that looks horrid next to the greatness of Tina Landon's.

It is not a continuation of the Unbreakable tour. 

 

Janet's website explicitly states that it is a continuation

🤷🏾‍♂️ Deal with it

Sure... but it's not the same Tour based on what we know as fact

I was perfectly fine without the men, especially the feminized dancers that had performed it on UCAP. They didn't add anything to the performance that it didn't have without their presence on Unbreakable. When I watch UB the routine worked perfectly & looked great. It doesn't NEED men.

I somewhat agree with this... I would have preferred there to be male dancers as well, unless it would have been the same scenario as the guys she had on UCAP... and having male dancers means that she won't have the two "Littles" then I'd prefer she keeps it that way because my 8yo daughter is looking forward to seeing them again in October, like she did in SF during the UB stop..

the next talking point is the new music, when its released, which Im sure there will be a count down and how much of it she gives us......I'm still all about a new album or at the least an EP of several new tracks for the fans that have waited and stayed loyal ...I do believe Janet isnt going to disappoint

Yea honestly, to me, these last dancers were honestly the best group of dancers Janet has had since maybe RWU tour. These girls outside of Janet's choreography are epic on their own. The YouTube videos of them are crazy. They can hold their own. If Janet does as men back in I think it would be nice to see guys like Nick Bass & some of the other guys who add a more rugged dynamic. 

When that happens it also shows how great Janet is being able to keep up with it & it's an energy balance.

I concur.. I think the dancers from TVR tour are my favorite but RWU is a VERY CLOSE 2nd place..

:sigh:  dare I have an opinion :whistle:    I think Janet has had the best dancers of any artist, and those who audition for Janet it means the world to them to be a Janet dancer, I was just watching some footage of dancer auditions from Janet's tours and these kids really work hard to come thru....now whose the best? I thought the balance in VR was beautiful, If I had any reservations it would be with choreography and the "flow" that was created for eras after Tina ...honey its time to bring back some men on that stage, its an easy way to add flavor, all women just doesnt feel like Janet, esp tomboy Janet with baseball hats to this day ..gurl no!!!....show that sass....get us....I wanna see them do that...Janet has songs that its cute to see her perform "Nasty" against the boys ...like gurl "im not a prude I just want some respect" !!!!! YAAAASSS!!!!
