    • 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.

You're missing what we are saying. If Janet doesn't perform non singles from the current album she is supporting at that time...then 9 chances out of 10 she will not do it on future tours. Infact the LA TIMES article that interviewed Gil even says how HE was the one that basically was telling Janet to stop with her cliche medley's cus it's predictable to her audience. He said they FINALLY got through to her to switch it up and add songs that ppl wouldn't expect. If it wasn't for Gil, Janet would not be performing Island Life,TBTLY,etc. The Rock Tour was the ONLY tour aside from this where she stepped outside of her setlist formula because it was a tour for the diehard fans. 

I knew what y'all were saying but my pettiness kicked in and i'm glad you brought up the Rock Witchu tour cause that was my next go to :lol:

All the songs she sang during the RockWitchu Tour were singles (aside from tracks from the supporting album)

I think y’all were referring to Say You Do, Young Love, and Don’t Stand Another Chance? 

All three were singles :lol: 

Young Love sold 200k stateside as the first single from her self-titled album and was Janet’s first R&B top ten hit. It also peaked at #63 on the Hot 100 and top 20 in New Zealand

Say You Do was the third single and peaked at #15 on the R&B charts

Don’t Stand a Chance was the first single from her second album “Dream Street”.  It also landed Janet her second R&B hit (#9)

Well with the Rock Tour example I was speaking more about that being the first time she performed songs that she had never done live .. Say You Do, Another Chance, FHTF, she brought back "You Want This" which she hadn't done since janet.Tour. That tour just marked the first time she had any kind of shakeup of the usual setlist.

I thought we were talking nonsingles from previous albums? All of the songs you mentioned were singles. This is the first time she’s performed non-singles from previous albums on tour. 

She’s performed most of those songs live (not on tour since her first tour was Rhythm Nation)  

But she has performed YWT in her last three tours (Rockwithu, #1s, Unbreakable)... it’s not like New Agenda or 24Play or What About, or Spending Time With You, WAYN, TBTLY

I know Gil had been trying to get her to come out that shell. There's a lot of things she's done on this tour that has made it one of her best tours. She's never been so direct as her opening is - it's actually chilling when you watch it. The sound bites are direct and epic. Her performing nonsingles FINALLY gives that mystique to her shows that I've always talked about - 

nearly EVERY fan wants to see her explore her catalog. Gil knows that. His pulse with the fans is solid & this might be his best creative direction so far IMO. Fans fall in love with your catalog not just your singles. Matter of fact, less with singles. This tour shows her versatility musically & it also reminds people she's been more than a sex symbol. It's the most successful pull off of "classic me with a modern twist" this is what it was always supposed to look like. It's very purposeful that she's leaned into her most nostalgic & iconic look.

Well, Number Ones she performed When We Oooh once. lol

 

But yeah, I love the non singles or at least songs she hasn't performed before or in such a long time on the setlist. It's a good look. Hell I want her to add I Want You, Every Time, China Love, Lessons Learned, Tonight's The Night, My Baby, Enjoy (idk why she ignores this). But I'm happy with what she is giving on this tour tho. Never thought I see her perform any of those songs.

I love that. As i've said before I think Gil is doing a good job this time around as the creative director. I'm wondering if Janet will ever perform "Again" again? I know her voice has changed so i'm wondering if she can't hit the notes she used to especially the long note at the end.

nah I don't think that has anything to do with her voice we were just all kinda tired of it being the go to ballad. It's been out for 24 years and it's the first time she hasn't performed it. I'm seriously cool with that.

I still can't believe she fixed her mouth to sing the number 7 track off Damita Jo...I've always closed my eyes and fantasize that she would but what a welcomed surprise when she did so. ^_^ #nothingbetterthan

I'm cool with it too. I loved the montage she did for the song this tour instead of singing it

don't forget David Jones the musical director, I'm sure he had a lot of input into what would work well.

Well yeah... Gil did say "we finally got through to Janet" but I think it was initially Gil's idea to change it up based on him saying to Janet "your audience knows what songs you're gonna group together,girl " lol

I figured Gil didn't do it on his own but at least he made her switch it up. Now that she's performed 1 of 4 of my dream songs if she did "Feels So Right", "Lonely" or "SloLove" i'd lose my shit:wub:

This pic is my everything. The dichotomy of the women and the men in this pic. Ms. Jackson throwing that smile of hers. :wub:

I just checked on ticketmaster and she has plenty of tickets available. I don't think she should've continued with the show tonight but maybe she didn't wanna postpone and people talk shit thinking she's gonna start cutting off shows like she did last time.
