      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.

    "in spite of the achievements that have earned her the Icon Award at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs): No. 1 albums in four consecutive decades; roughly 32 million albums sold in the United States, according to a Billboard estimate (based on RIAA certifications, Nielsen Music data and archival reports);" They've been peddling through my threads....

    And it's the 25th anniversary of TTWLG hitting #1. 2 + 5 = 7. The seventh day is also the Sabbath where God rested and looked back on his accomplishments. On what day is Janet being honored?? Sunday, the Sabbath. What for? Her accomplishments. On which album did Janet rest and solidify her legend status? What number album for Janet is this? The 7th. These. Are not. Coincidences.

    Like, her understanding of performance is just mind blowing. She finalizes her speech about feminism (successfully ending Susan B. Anthony and closing the wage gap), but let's backtrack. The objective is to highlight feminism, and the #MeToo #TimesUp movements, and she illustrates that through dance. She continues the story of "Control", by being in control. Just to explain "Nasty". She used a similar organization from American Idol, but she changed the storyline and the choreography. Watch AI: Notice how the story is all the guys vying for Janet's attention? They dance a little bit for her. Show off their moves, per se. She watches from afar before making her move. But let's contrast that with BBMA: Notice here, the story is Janet going up to the guy and being more assertive. She chooses who she wants. She's in control. She is illustrating feminism. I just....

    This audience view of Janet's performance really shows how much of the production wasn't seen because of the camera panning to the audience. I could care less about audience reactions of performers at award shows the primary focus should be on the performer. The camera direction of panning to the audience in turn missed a dance breakdown within "Throb", the beginning of the dance breakdown of "If", and additional dancing within "Nasty".

    I'm reading the source of the T's post on the xone (chille I dusted off my password JUST for this lol). a few things. 1. Janet made a 11th hour last min decision to cut the new song from the routine which would explain why it wasn't longer 2. He says the artist isn't Beyonce or Childish Gambino (someone asked if it were either of them) those are the only 2 (and Bruno ofcourse) that it's for sure not. ........he is pretty damn reliable, he called the photoshoot with Billboard before it released, he said she'd be 11th to perform & that it'd be 42 dancers. He said her whole segment would be around 15mins (which it was if we include the moment Bruno walked out to present & her speech after, like they might've broke it down for her crew "YALL GOT 15mins MAX!")....So Im gon have to keep an eye on this persons posts cause....that's alot of specifics....

    I’m glad they showed the audience. That crowd was so much more hyped and alive than the AMA crowd of 2009. I remember it was just Reba fucking Mcentire stanning and Jermaine singing the wrong lyrics . Normani, Mila Kunis, Rebel Wilson, Tyra, and so many more got their lives today! More focus on Janet would have been perfect though

    The GP knows the hits but the GP hasn't seen her perform them on live TV in 8yrs, it's not like she was on these shows doing this when Unbreakable was out. Yes, it's the perfect opportunity to unleash a brand new slayage (All For You Icon performance style) but a medley is a good boost for the gp/casual fans, hell look at how she's been doing the hits on her tour new choreography, new breaks & breakdowns. Let's not acting like a Medley is gonna be like it was on the AMA's or XFactor in 09, hell think about the slaying of that Idol performance too, and how positively the public responded.

    I think a show about Billboard Charts will feature a performance of songs that charted extremely well on said charts. It should be something like her AMA performance but with better dancers, better transitions, better make-up, better music, a better outfit, maybe better hair? and a Janet that is in better shape. She is really about to eat that stage up

    “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.” "...Jackson will be receiving the coveted Icon Award, which recognizes singers' contributions." These are not coincidences.

    Janet wrote this song with/for LaToya, did the demo & backgrounds. Its told that Janet teaching Toy how to sing a song is what got her noticed by her father to be a singer, I suspect this is the song. The timing matches up (released in 81, same year Janet got signed) And Janet did background vocals for this hot mess of a song I love and is 1 of Toya's best. Note about this performance, Janets singing background, Rene is dancing background & they met on this trip... (Janet is shown in the clip briefly). Its always funny that Janet can mimic Toy perfectly (talking and singing) like I can only tell which is Janet cause shes the 1 in key but all 3 of the sisters have a very similar tone in their highest register.

    That fan footage just made my heart explode....seeing the arm movements in their full majesty....10yrs after retirement..... (remember it was the AMA's where she VERY 1st retired them) It makes perfect sense that MJ would ONLY perform at award shows if he got to direct how his performance was shot, this shows why that's needed so badly, like WOW, that's the thing, it's not the camera men's fault it's whoever was directing in that control booth, cause not only for this performance but for all, it was so knee-jerk and clearly last min when they'd cut to audience.

    I really liked her performance.... didn’t looove it, but def liked it a lot..I, too, loved the outfits and hair...Loved that she had a ton of dancers with her, of all shapes and sizes, and the stage setup (small stage, main center, two main stages, stairs, platforms, diff levels, etc)..Loved that she did the IF arm movements again (hopefully she stays doing that)..Loved the WWO snippet mixed into Nasty, and felt that Nasty is very appropriate during the #MeToo movement, and especially because of her speech....All that being said....I didn’t like the last half of her speech.. I loved the message she was trying to/did convey, but as a non-religious person, I felt like I had opened my front door to some Jehovah Witness that I wanted to close the door on...loved the message of love in her speech overall though..Also obviously the camera work was lame af, legit prolly the WORST shots since the 2004 BET Awards performance, maybe ever..Throb was cool and honestly I think the only reason she performed that song is because of the amount of dancers she had on stage with her and that’s always been a song that she showcased her dancers in...AND IT WAS THE 25TH ANNIV OF janet. DUUUR!Let’s see..anything else..?...hmmmmm........Oh yea—Gil should be fired. 👀 .....................Anyways can’t wait to see her this summer (hopefully)

    Its interesting to me she is using dancers still from Unbreakable...it almost feels like its been one stretched out, evolving era. I have a lil theory but I wont discuss it here She seems so vibrant and refreshed now!

    Prince and Janet aren't comparable. Janet is more commercially successful, whereas Prince is more critically successful.

    It is so much easier not to participate, what's the point of going back and forth with somebody who is fine with being arrogantly ignorant. It's pointless.

    ANOTHER award for her not really doing anything. LOL. And the presenter of the award will be a hologram of Janet. So basically, Janet's presenting herself the award.
