    Honestly??? The Body That Loves You took me tf out. I was NOT expecting that. That is my song. Elevator jam. The crowd was so fucking dead. I was the only one standing in my section. The aunties surrounding me were SHOOK that I knew every song and all the lyrics DSFGHJFDSFGHJGFDGHJKL; "Janet needs to hire you!!" Girl. Black Eagle was the funniest. My stan circle friends know that is my song. So when it came on, Of COURSE know one knew it. Y'all know how ambient the song is. Imagine a dead quiet ass arena and my gay ass yelling "ONCE YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T NOT KNOW YASSSSS" Everyone in the sections surrounding me had to do a double take aSDFGHDSADFGH. I was living and they couldn't take. The setlist made it clear. This is strictly for the fans. and thats not even some stan copout. She dgaf about how the tour does as far as sales. She doing this for us and I'm very glad she upped the production and catered the whole show to us! The tour book is pretty nice too. Last minute ofc, but some great bts pics and proof that she is recording again (with JJ&TL). I kinda wanna go again. I really wish I was with the other fans on the floor but y'all like 10 years older than me and have salaries so never happening. But I was the only one lit in my vicinity! But BLESSED to FINALLY see her live. I am so happy! S/o to Groupon!!!

    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"

    A bunch of music icons are set to be featured in a new documentaryabout the legendary celebrity makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin. Cher, Janet Jackson and the late Whitney Houston will all appear in KEVYN AUCOIN Beauty & the Beast in Me, which will premiere on Logo Thursday, September 14. The film includes Aucoin’s never-before-seen personal videos and audiotapes, as well as more recent celebrity interviews, which tell the story of his rise to fame and untimely death at age 40. Other celebrities appearing in the film include Tina Turner, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Andie MacDowell. http://abcnewsradioonline.com/music-news/2017/6/30/cher-janet-jackson-whitney-houston-more-featured-in-makeup-a.html Janets in the trailer for it looking amazing in 93, he was THE best makeup artist of her career, hands down, I'll judge anyone who says otherwise harshly, its a fact not a opinion. I am excited for this & to learn his story

    In the motel room, and walking out the door in just a moment. The excitement is surreal for sure, but above anything I'm just thankful to be inhabiting this space and this time, with such an incredible artist, family of artists to learn from and grow with. Above all, I'm just ready to celebrate with Janet and the JanFam. And JanFam= what a perfect name for her fan base. Like a family, we argue. And Lord knows that Janet's career has truly seen its ups and downs. We all know that she's been tested in so many ways that even her contemporaries didn't have to endure. But like family, we're in for the long haul, and still thankful for all that she and the Jacksons have accomplished. Ok time to go... #SOTW number 1 y'all!!

    When Janet worked with other producers, we got 20YO and Discipline. Ya'll want that again? The only good to come out of that were RWU, FB, and Luv. There's a reason why the second half of 20YO sounds better than the first. The trio (J-J-T) did a great job of updating Janet's sound, but keeping in time with classic Janet from structure to content. Some of the tracks on this album can stand next to her old material, namely DB, BE, AYF, GBA, and UB.

    Think of your favorite pop song (not by Janet). Now think of the song structure and the parts that make it great. Nice melody? Simple lyrics? Typical song structure. Now let's get to Doesn't Really Matter by Janet Jackson and have your mind blown on what a pop song is supposed to sound like. (excuse any typos it is 5 am lololol) Background Now lets give DRM some context because it's important. The new millennium is approaching and so is a new sound in pop music. Janet is coming off her most introspective album to date which left a heavy cloud over the Janet brand. The Velvet Rope is full of moody urban sounds and intense lyrical content in a sea full of happy-go-lucky teeny-bopper garbage and because of this the album suffered to sell as well as previous efforts. Janet has an amazing (?) opportunity to be in the sequel to the Nutty Professor. The perfect platform to launch her new uplifting pop sound! Janet goes to the producers to suggest she be apart of the soundtrack and OF COURSE they oblige! Now let's take a gander at the SOUND that is ruling radio rn: This Max Martin sound was a complete 180 sonically of what Janet was making on TVR. Queen had to step it up to ASSERT her dominance over these little kids. Now, Janet being the mf star she was could have went to Max Martin herself for an easy Bonafide hit. Nah. Janet is a Loyal Taurean Queen. She enlists her longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis to replicate this sound and show Max how it should be done. The Song Let's get into this shall we? I present to you, Doesn't Really Matter. As a faithful Janet listener in 1999, I'm sure this was a breath of fresh air when you heard it. Immediately, Janet's soft coos over the eastern asian elements (that would later define All For You) put you in a state of bliss. Now, I say this is a marvel of modern pop songwriting not because of subject matter. A person telling their lover that their appearance doesn't mean a thing; it's about theor inner beauty. It's simple. Borderline corny even? But it works. Let's breakdown the song structure. It seems pretty normal from the first minute or so. Intro - Verse - Pre-Chorus - Chorus... Post-Chorus? Now WAIT! What song you know has a post-chorus? Is that even a thing? The part of the song I'm referring to: Interesting. Perfect set-up for the second verse. Let's continue: 2nd Verse - Pre-Chorus - Chorus - Post-Chorus - Bridge (Yasssss) - Pre-Chorus - Chorus... Now this is where the modern pop song would end, but wait... Janet has more for us? *KEY CHANGE* Chorus... WAIT. Is this a new refrain??? It sure the fuck isssss! W O W. Mind blown! But why?? It came from a creative conflict during the early stages of the song. The melody was set, but Janet came up with the Doesn't Really Matter concept and refrain, while Jimmy came up with the Nutty Nutty Nutty my love for you. Janet loved the idea and incorporated it into the song as a second refrain. Genius. Finally, as our wig is in orbit from the songwriting miracle she just unleashed upon us, the song goes into a euphoric chant of lovestruck "Oh's" as a counter-melody tpo the refrain tro which she then stacks it under the final chorus of the song which leads us into the outro. "I'm Always doing that *chuckle*" she exclaims as the last strand of hair from our scalp is yanked off to the beat of the song's end. AND THAT'S JUST THE SONG STRUCTURE. As with ANY Janet x JJ&TL collaboration, the mix of background vocals, harmonies, sounds etc. really make the song. I really wish we had stems of this masterpiece so we could really dissect how intricate this song really is. For now, all we have is this fan mix of filtered vocals. Second best. Final Thoughts The lyrics, song structure, and intricate workings of the song all work in unison. These elements all mix to create the perfect mood. Euphoric, irresistible, and undeniable. The concept is simple but it's perfectly embellished. With so many factors at play, it would be easy for a song like this to sound noisy and all over the place, but under the direction of an artist like Janet, it sounds perfect. True genius! Janet shattered the Max Martin sound and showed she wasn't going to be some washed up diva who's last hit would be in the 90s. This was the perfect entrance into the new millennium for a woman who has such a sonically diverse catalog. Another notch on the belt. This small hit (3 weeks at #1 ain't too shabby?) set the stage for All For You to be the massive success it was. All of this Brilliance for a shitty soundtrack feature ? Only Janet. (and to think we didn't even touch on the iconic video??) Another chapter in the Genius of Janet Jackson!

    I've watched Gil's Instagram Live sessions and he said Janet is going to share pictures of Eissa on her own terms. Gil hasn't gone in detail about any plans regarding music videos or the tour just subtly mentioned both because he knows things he says regarding them are going to be shared on forums. Gil has gone in more detail regarding stories/opinions about past tours, different Janet songs, etc. Gil did talk about Eissa a lot during his most recent Instagram Live. Gil said Eissa has the biggest smile, has Janet's eyes & cheeks, and Wissam's ears & lips. He also said Eissa is always hungry. He said Katherine loves her some baby Eissa. He still can't believe Janet is a mom. He said Janet always has Eissa right there with her when Janet & him have their Facetime meetings (which are multiple times a week). Gil also said Janet loves being a mother and seems she is in her own little world with baby Eissa.

    It is said that the baby she is holding will grow up and write the greatest american novel called The State of the World where he will discuss the ideas that Janet is talking about on her tour. A boy from the Midwest will read said book and will grow up with all kinds of magnificent ideas in his head about a Rhythm Nation. He will grow into a great orator and will speak about these ideas to this land and all over the world. This boy will start a movement called Rhythm Nation and shortly after become leader of this country as the first gay African American president. His campaign slogan will be 'You know I came to snatch a couple of wigs'. He will speak of Janet and her new tour because it is her tour that will plant the seeds of true change as she encourages all to be the true you.

    I'm keeping my comments short due to the needed scalp transplant. But Y'ALL... Janet not only looked epic. She SANG THE SHIIIIIT out of this show!! Was singing live all night. Hitting notes, going off the track, sang the damn high notes (Rhythm nation). She stared Father Time in the face and fucked him over something awful!! Y'all don't EVEN, you can't EVEN until you see it.

    That's passive aggressive for "I'm only doing this tour out of obligation".

    This is something that I've been working on for the last couple months, off and on. The audio track included in this video is the 2016 Jack Roeby Megamix. If anyone has ever asked you what makes Janet Jackson so great, just show them this....... Hope you guys like it!
