    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!!!

I am excited for this & to learn his story

    Me and my bestie went to the show last night here in Dallas! That INTRO IS THE BEST INTRO OF ANY JANET TOUR! Idc... lol I said it! She doesn't look anyones 51 nor moves like she's 51. She gave birth 8 months ago. Nothing is stopping this woman when it comes to PERFORMING! She was sassy as fuck, had a bunch of attitude and even got ratchet when Cardi B came on. lol What About performance was very very powerful. The whole show is just amazing. the lighting is crazy.

    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.

    So I'm back! I had to step away so I didn't get any spoilers and I'm so glad I did that! She killed it last night in Dallas. SOTW has shaped up to he my favorite for a few reasons. By far this is the best put together set list she has done. She remained VERY on theme with this set list. To me the opening of this show is the most impactful & when she walks out like a GENERAL I couldn't contain myself. Also, NO ONE can tell me there is no value in fans consistently asking & pushing for things. The "don't complain be thankful" mindset would not have gotten us - 24PLAY, Island Life, The Body that Loves You, New Agenda - LIKE WTF!! I love the relevance of the concept & this is the Janet I fell in love with. The one who sttacks things head on. ALSO there's so much meaning in it. The Bodak Yellow is performed during WHYDFML - knowing her relationship status the lyrics "You couldn't fuck with me if you wanted to, I don't gotta dance I make money moves, quick to cut a Nigga off so don't get comfortable" mixed with WHYDFML is a direct shot. I have so much I want to say but I know this post can get long, but I'll say Janet delivered the best she has delivered in MANY years. Honestly idk if fans will like this said or not but the truth is, the "breakdown" & cry is a part of the act. She's not breaking down every night because it's too emotional. She's performing it like she did on VR a& like she used to "cry" during Again back on the Janet tour. She literally cries on cue, says the same thing, & mixes it with the show. So MAYBE some nights it does hit her hard, but every show seems to get the "this is me" & covered face and break down. So I don't think this is her not being able to naturally contain herself. The dancers & band even seem to know it's coming & wait for it & know when to move after it. The lighting is even prepared for it. IJS

    Just attended the show last night & she's extremely cool - MUCH more attractive in person. Beautiful skin & body. Cute face too.

    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!

    http://www.elle.com/fashion/a12228328/janet-jackson-tour-costumes/Since first announcing she'd have to postpone her Unbreakable World Tour, fans have waited with bated breath for Janet Jackson to return. After a year off and a tour name change, the artist is back, kicking off the State of the World Tour earlier last week. Known for her iconic concert looks (ahem, Rhythm Nation and Velvet Rope) the costumes for the 56 city tour are expected to be a visual treat that touch upon...you guessed it...the current state of the world. We caught up with stylist/costume designer Robert Behar about what fans can expect from the highly anticipated tour.How did you start working with Janet?Janet and I met through a mutual friend who was her makeup artist and we started to work from that moment on. The energy was right I guess. We clicked very well and we started moving on from there. It’s been a long time, since 2005. You get the memo that she’s going to go on tour. What’s the first step you have to take? First and foremost a conversation with Janet. There are a lot of conversations, we talk about things, we change our mind a few times before we get to something we feel comfortable with and think about the theme or a mood we want to represent. It's about a mood versus a look and a feeling versus a look. Then we just keep on knocking it down until we get there—sketches, conversations, texts. What were the conversations you had about this tour in particular?We talk about the dancers—she always places everybody before her. She’s a very kind, generous human being. They’re not done as a group, they’re done as individuals. What was the mood you were going for with this tour? The title of the tour says it all. It’s really the state of the world. What’s going on, how we feel, about the problems and the unnecessary violence—things like that. How does that translate into the clothing?There's a futuristic, urban quality to the clothing. A more gritty and raw kind of look, but still with the elegance and sophistication that she brings to each show. You guys will be blown away by this. After the conversations, what's next? I’ll sit with Janet and we’ll free sketch bits and bits together. I try to read her vision as well and as much as possible from the get-go. Then I’ll start to put proper sketches with colors and details. Once we have a look that we like through the sketches, then the next big element is the fabrication. We try to keep things very sophisticated. And manipulate the fabrication to keep the material looking very chic and very nice, but ensure it still has the easy that she and the dancers need to move in. How long does that process take? The process of talking about them and creating them on paper takes a couple of months. Are you still tweaking before she goes on stage?Absolutely. Remember they’re all dancers—and she’s an incredible professional and perfectionist—so she will rehearse the entire show twice a day right before the tour starts. By that time, everybody has lost weight. Everyone’s bodies have transformed from the hard workout every day. And you keep that in mind when sourcing fabrics? Absolutely. And since we work with fabrics that don’t give we’ll create multiples of costumes in different sizes. With the muscle transformation (the calves are going to get bigger, the glutes are going to get bigger, the stomach is going to slim down) we do that since on tour there’s no time to re-create a garment. How much does Janet weigh-in on costumes?She weighs in on everything. Something I love people to know about Janet is that we're always checking the look and considering the details until the very end. Like, if we raise this collar the necks will look longer or if we tighten this area it’ll look better for the garment. She looks at every detail and every garment and every rehearsal with her notes. Tell us about the shoes!We collaborated with Nike on the sneakers the dancers are wearing this year. Jerry [Lorenzo] of Fear of God's also done a section of clothing for us that is very exciting and fresh. We love Jerry. Going back to the footwear, Janet is dancing in Rick Owens. Footwear is so important. We tweak the shoes a lot to hold the ankles and hold the foot; allow the foot to bend but not bend too much and all of those details. We put straps on the Nikes to hold the ankles—things like that.When you’re discussing tour looks with Janet do you guys reference what you’ve done in the past or come up with something completely new? We will reference details like where a jacket hits on the hips or how pants hit on the legs. But I think she’s like me: when the door is closed, we have to move on. She is a fashion icon as well and is revered so she wants to evolve. I will say, we are doing for one little throwback for this show. A little one. It’s to an iconic look. It’s very minimal, though, and I hope people will get to see it and enjoy.

    I agree to an extent. Like, it's literally our job to simply show up and have a good time and then go home and fuck our spouses n shit... but at the same time, if she ain't selling tickets, shows will be cancelled. We've seen it happen before. So while we have no business coming up with solutions on how to fill seats, I don't think it's uncalled for to be at least concerned about the success of the tour, especially if the show you have tickets to isn't one of the first few stops she's doing (*cough* Ohio *cough*).. ?
