    • 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.

The Janet talk starts around 14:00 in the video.

 

Essentially a summary of what Jimmy Jam talks about for those of you who don't want to listen or don't have time to listen to the interview:

 

- He says Janet is his and Terry's muse and he can't think about Janet without having a song pop into his head
- His favorite Janet song is "That's The Way Love Goes" and talks about the writing process with Janet (he's mentioned this story before)
- And his other favorite Janet songs are "Lonely", "Empty", and "No Sleeep"
- He says obviously working with Janet is different than working with other artists because they've worked on albums vs. others where him & Terry might just work on a song or songs
- He plans to go to multiple tour dates on the State of The World Tour like he did on the Unbreakable Tour.
- He says since he has known Janet for over 30 years he knows even if they have short exchanges when they communicate him and Janet appreciate/enjoy being around each other. 
- He says they are in the brainstorming stage of the tour (obviously wasn't going to go in detail about what changes are going to be made/not made)
- He says he feels like one of the "Luckiest Uncles in The World" because he is always getting a Facetime around 2:00 am his time from Janet and she always has Eissa in her lap. 
-He says Eissa is "the most beautiful baby he has seen in his life" and Eissa is always happy. And says Janet is also giddy and happy with Eissa. He says it is inspirational to see that there is a whole new added element/a whole other meaning to Janet now that she is a parent.
- He mentions George Michael and recording the song "Monkey" and how George wanted it to have elements in terms of sound of the Cool Summer Mixes of Janet's "Nasty" and "Diamonds". And says Janet & George were fans of each other's music.
- He says to his knowledge there isn't a Janet & George Michael song even though there have been rumors of one. 
- He said that he thinks Janet and him did see George in concert. And that he and Janet like seeing concerts together and mentions how they saw J.Cole back in 2015 in LA and how Jimmy hooked Janet up with Bruno Mars tickets overseas recently. He says Janet likes seeing other's works because as he says "Inspiration breeds Inspiration"

I'm hype to hear him say they're working on something now, I always thought the idea of an EP is great but it also sounds like he could have misunderstood the question despite the fact he also seemed to move on from it quickly. On purpose. 

And with him saying it's in brainstorming mode & they don't have to really gear up - it sounds like they might be pulling from songs in their arsenal...I remember him saying that they were working on music shortly after the tour stopped. 

 

Edit: Never mind he said - yes we are actually.

He kinda tipped toed around the question. I'm sure there's some Unbreakable unreleased songs that didn't make the cut or maybe they want to come back to or maybe entirely new songs Janet wrote while pregnant (post-Unbreakable Tour). She had a lot of time on her hands

Listened back to this interview whil cleaning the house, and this is exactly why I LOVE Jimmy! If you let him talk long enough, all the secrets will be revealed!! When Kelly asks about tour prep, he's talking about the sonic treatments, and almost says what new songs are going to be added!!
