      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.

    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

    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)

    Loved everything about her speech. As a believer myself and working/knowing the industry they often try to make you compromise your beliefs. Everyone around the last 10 years started referring to the “Universe” - which is cool, but trust me it was a trend that the industry was collectively on. Janet took the deep breath before she mentioned her faith because it’s often silenced. In a space where we talk about collective acceptance of love & difference of opinion, having a faith based perspective has become taboo & scrutinized. Good for Janet. One day fans will learn, you support someone who will always support God. It’s best to anticipate it anytime she speaks. That’s where she is in her life & always has been but even more so. The performance was short & didn’t do her justice. The camera people were trash. The setlist was for fans & gives me hope that future set list will be diversified. Overall I thought it was GOOD but not amazing. I wish the dances that lead into throb - the slow parts were longer. In comparison to tour she kills it much more on tour. I felt there was more potential left on the stage.

    THIS. This is part of why Janet is my #1. Beyond being an amazing artist through and through, she’s just, I dunno, exceptionally tuned in to the world around her and humanity.

    I don't give a fuck what any of you say, we rarely see her with her siblings...her up there with her big brothers would do me fine.

    That article that accompanies the pics is very profound. She is so intelligent and in tune with her world. Bitch said a bird chirping can inspire a melody. Chile....

    Janet was fucking that Throb choreography up after that air drum jump move and that fucking camera cut away....I am super pissed. That was a moment, I know it was. Ugh! Throw the whole show away!!!

    Apparently we can thank some guy called Dan for When We Ooo. He’s her musical director? James and Allison said the music was down to him. And Throb was Gils idea.

    Well it was short but I appreciated all the little hints of other songs here and there and that she performed throb which feels so effing current and fresh. She’s a goddess, her speech was beaut, and she looked beaut.

    Gosh hindsight is so 20/20, isn’t it?? Clearly the intention to get pregnant was always Janet’s hope, so it was smart to have some sort of off-ramp were that to happen. And after years of trying, she hadn’t been successful to that point, so how was she to actually know that it would happen in the middle of the tour? But I prefer to think of it this way... As Janet just reminded us in her interview, being an entertainer, creating and performing is in her DNA. We’ve watched and marveled at Janet’s talents since she was 7 years old. And even though she is very private on her off time, I believe her when she says doing this is a necessary thing for her and her family. Conversely, anyone that thought she was just going to be locked away in a tower for her whole life and become a fade to black trophy mom wife was absolutely wrong about that assertion. Guess they weren’t watching those 40 plus years of YouTube clips to the contrary?? For fans, we saw all of these ‘competing interests’ playing out during UWT, even if we didn’t realize it at the time. So yeah, that show had a lot up against it. So what a blessing it is to see her now, with her sweet baby, her fiercely loyal tour family and the love of her fans and friends? Even through the toughest moments, we all knew that our love for Ms. Jackson is UNBREAKABLE. So now that our queen is telling the world that she’s officially made it to the other side, we all need to celebrate that with her.

    I’m not expecting anything. I didn’t expect anytning for Unbreakable and it surprised and slayed me. I have hopes and desires but I refuse to get my hopes up.

    With all that she's gone through since Unbreakable we know she's got something to say. Even reading the interview, Janet is so poetic!!
