    Amazing performance. I never seen her perform barefoot. That opening and the production value was on poinT. Her understanding of using the whole stage is unmatched. I love how unique Janet's fashion is..she doesn't conform and she wears what she wants...a big problem to some of her fanbase(when in reality it's just clothes). Anyway, the AFY part was off. Janet didn't realize she had background dancers and proceeded to make them look like amateurs. She continues to fuck that breakdown up. I'm shocked she's still pushing MFN.. Haven't seen this much promo for a single since forever. I'm happy to still be amazed at Janet..such a gift to be riding for her going on 30+ years now.

    She's not in any position to judge anyone's sense of fashion or style.

    Anyone going to the RRHOF Induction Ceremony next week? I'll be hosting a pre-show lunch at Don Chingon's at 4pm. The address is 216 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217. Take a look at the menu here - http://donchingon.nyc/menu/ Aside from the induction ceremony, I'll also be at DJ Aktive's after party. Hope to see you all there!

    Game's argument: - Michael was too close to those kids, therefore the claims of sexual abuse are certain. - Anybody who disagrees (and can thoroughly support their argument) are wackos, sheep. Also the right to defend oneself is victim shaming. -Wash rinse repeat (and very adamantly. People think being adamant makes a statement true.)

    I really appreciate y’all’s input because when I first saw the video I stopped when his ass started mentioning Beyoncé like she was the clear cut #1.

    She is still dressing like Stevie Nicks. I like the outfit but she looks mad uncomfortable. And that wig is throwing everything off balance.

    Y'all still tryin to predict the Queen of Unpredictability..... The Performance was fire. I realize it's more fun and less stress not trying to anticipate her every move & next step as if she's 1 of her lessor"s.

    The part about RN1814 selling 2 million. It didn't. It sold 1.8 million in 4 weeks. https://www.nytimes.com/1989/10/25/arts/the-pop-life-039889.html This is a receipt I found during my research years ago. This also tells me that whole sector of the fan base still pedals through the old threads I did, which I honestly don't mind because that's what they're there for and why I try to keep them updated when I find new stuff. Also, that the Tokyo Dome show had 55k ppl. It didn't. The press release from 2008 says 48,000. http://www.emol.org/music/artists/jacksonjanet/2008witchuconcerttour.html At most, 50k as reported by LA Times that was written at the time of the tour http://articles.latimes.com/1990-05-18/entertainment/ca-489_1_janet-jackson I just don't understand the need to fabricate when you have the receipts to support your claims. Also, Lamont, after all these years, still feels the need to point out where Janet bested Madonna in something. Instead of mentioning other artists, he could've spend that time focusing on how Janet's success was significant, and what the era meant for the progression of popular music. But let's point out that Janet bested a Madonna chart achievement on a niche chart. ? The video also could've benefited from better organization. It should've started with the back story of the album, the success, and then the lasting impact coupled with the discussion of significance. From there, viewers wouldhave a better understanding of, and could trace, how the pop music landscape began to change because of that album. But with RRHOF noms next month, this video is right on time.

    I held back on how toxic I found his presence because I knew that was the response he wanted. I'm not sure of how much of an act it was...the fact somebody would put on such an act to be a troll (which he confessed to), well that's something in itself. I don't think he was expecting to go like that and considering how much time he spent here (even daily), it'll probably affect him more than we think. That Son of A Gun knows we are talking about him and he's Moist at the thought of it.

    I honestly don’t get how artists like Justin Timberlake, J. Lo, Kanye West, even P!nk got this award before Missy?!? She should have gotten it during her peak in 2001-2005!!! I swear MTV seriously forgot and she recently remembered like “oh yeah!!! Missy!!! Oops!” 😳😱👀🤦🏾‍♂️

    This was about overall IMPACT. Janet wins this one, hands down. There are people out here still sampling her songs, still doing her iconic dance routines, still using her performance platform. Don't get me started on her visuals. Younger artists like Normani and Teyana Taylor still name checking her as an influence. Whitney is impactful, but not as impactful as Janet(the whole spectrum of entertainment).

    Nervous????????? What? While all these other artists such as Beyonce,Ciara etc...all say even til this day they still get nervous before each performance. Janet said she hasnt been nervous since the opening nite of the RN Tour.. Janet doesnt have those jitters like other performers. I highly doubt she's nervous and thinking "omg this is Europe...i hope i do well". Janet is gone treat that performance like any other VET performance

    He definitely doesn't have it in him to deal with her. That's why Sansa is stepping in. She know how people get when they are "in love". She said it herself to Dany. I feel so sorry for Dany on one hand. She really has had a hard life when you look at the totality of it. Her daddy was slaughtered, she was thrown into exile with assassins on her tail. She was sold into marriage. Husband was murdered, she was burned alive but emerged a dragon queen. Built a coalition through war and conquest for years. Came to to get her throne got dicked down by Jon Snow who apparently knows more than he gets credit for in the bedroom. Cause he convinced her to give it all up to save the world and Winterfel from the Night King. All her shit got destroyed. She brutally lost 2 babies. Her man has a better claim on the throne than her. His sister don't like her. He wont give her the good D anymore since he found out she his aunt. Her best friend gets beheaded. Her Hand is incompetent with strategy. I mean fuck... You want her to get vengeance and have a happy ending but the writing is on the wall really. Even poor Gendry cant get lady Arya. She put it on him so hard he ready to go all in and she like nah bruh I just wanted that Baratheon D I gotta go

    Well shes a pop act doing a vegas residency so its suppose to be bells n whistles. She better not try that scaled back shit for Vegas. That is NOT the place. I would like to think Janet is intelligent enough to know production is needed here.

    I still have my moments where I want kids..all my friends here have them..most people at work have kids(except the gays--). Sometimes, I feel inadequate because that's what most people talk about are their kids or spouses..and other times, I'm like fuck it. Oh well. I'm 40 and at this point it's not happening. I have two nephews(I have more on my dad side)..so I'll love them like my own. It's funny how people say don't have them because of the expenses..others say have at least one. But yeah.

    You would think fans would be used to her looking like something out of a Tim Burton movie by now. I can literally name 5 essential characters from his movies that inspire her look. Even her Black Girls Rock look was parodied for looking like something out of Beetlejuice. Let Janet be the artist she is.

    So I went on a date today with someone that attended and he said he saw my Instagram post of my Janet vinyl and started showing me his Glastonbury videos. He was in the second row. After what he said, I think i’ll Ease up on her 1) sound was definitely the main issue. Not her fault. No artist sound checks at Glastonbury and they literally have engineers fiddling and tweaking as the artist is performing but they struggled to get it right 2) she was late on stage because they couldn’t get her soundboard fixed at the beginning but she apparently got tired of waiting and just went on 3) due to the bad sound the audience wasn’t really feeling it. They could not hear her because Peter gave too much bass and was drowning her out. 4) due to 3 it seemed like she was miming everything but she was actually live for a lot for it, go figure 5) despite the crowds lack of enthusiasm during, when her van drove off they all shouted “we love you Janet” etc (this was as she left the main stage and drove off to Stonehenge) 6) with all of the above people actually felt sorry for her and were praising her. They clearly knew it wasn't her fault. It was the same with Lauryn Hill (who swore at the sound guys whilst performing) Sigrid, and Years & Years. The set list still largely sucked though.

    Oddly enough Joe has a point HOWEVER her music maybe lowkey basic, she has a following. And even though she has zero originality, I would consider her a pop culture icon

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wsj.com/amp/articles/janet-jackson-rock-roll-hall-fame-ciara-janelle-11556206411 As Janet Jackson pointed out in her induction speech at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony in March, the nod is an honor that not many women have historically received. “Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, please, [in] 2020: induct more women,” she said. Her recognition by the organization—an honor bestowed upon more than 200 individuals and musical groups, fewer than 20 of which are solo female performers—is a long time coming for a musician who has created generation-defining art and served as a voice for marginalized groups for more than 30 years. Jackson, 52, who logged 18 consecutive top 10 hits between 1989’s “Miss You Much” and 1998’s “I Get Lonely” and secured a number one album on the Billboard 200 in each of the last four decades, has a music and visual catalog that spans several genres. Her legacy extends beyond the record books: Her storied career has laid the blueprint for future generations of women, especially black women, in the music industry. HBO will air the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony on April 27 at 8 p.m. ET. Ahead of the TV special, we spoke with some of Jackson’s closest collaborators and the artists who draw inspiration from her work about what her induction means for the industry as a whole. Jimmy Jam, producer and songwriter “It’s a proud moment. She calls [Terry Lewis and me] her two dads sometimes and we’re just extremely proud of her. I know there are some people that feel like it’s overdue but I always feel like things happen in the way that they’re supposed to happen. A lot of people say she didn’t do a whole lot of interviews and I would always say, ‘Anything you want to know about her, just listen to her songs.’ In that moment of taking control in her life and being an 18-year-old girl and moving out on her own, people could relate to that. When three or four years later, she looked around and saw the need to talk about social justice, she did that. When she fell in love, she talked about that on the janet.album. When she went through periods of depression or not feeling the way she thought she should feel, it was The Velvet Rope. To me, her importance and her influence, not only artistically, but psychologically for people, particularly young women, that were growing up with her and going through a lot of things in their lives. She’s been a soundtrack for that. I remembered early on there was a lot of talk that we somehow manufactured her [and] we were some sort of svengalis, but all we did was ask her what her opinions were and then helped her put those into song. If anything, the empowerment was that all of a sudden someone asked her opinion rather than just [sending] her in the studio to sing songs. Her musical IQ is off the charts and so when you would suggest an idea that would be crazy to suggest with someone else, she would take it and go, ‘Oh, yeah, let’s definitely do that.’ For [me and Terry Lewis], as writers and producers, there’s no one we trust more than Janet and, I think there’s probably no one she trusts more than us. We just connect on a level that’s very magical, divine or...I don’t even know what word to put on it. It’s funny to talk about legacy with her because I was literally just texting back and forth with her this morning and she’s preparing her show for Las Vegas, Metamorphosis, which is going to be amazing. I think what’s always stood out to me was her ability to touch people through song. She gets the responsibility of that. I just think her impact is one of a person who has been so inspiring to people.” Terry Lewis, producer and songwriter “It’s definitely a significant moment, just remembering the first day that Janet arrived in Minneapolis and we started to form a relationship. When we came she was just sheltered and kind of afraid of everything. She hadn’t really gotten a chance to be free to experience a lot of things. Now she’s blossomed into this powerful woman with all types of ideas. It’s amazing just to watch that kind of metamorphosis over the years. But, through it all she’s always been very sweet. [She is] a great businesswoman, a great friend, a great musician. She’s become a great songwriter. She comes from a musical tree. You can’t help but be able to pluck a good fruit out of that tree. That moment [of her being inducted] was, ‘Finally.’ You definitely want to see people get their flowers before their funeral. And, it’s just great to see more women going into the hall of fame. Before Janet, I don’t think anyone approached it like her. She’s one of the early women who approached it in a tenacious way. It was always very aggressive. Artists—like Aaliyah—who didn’t necessarily have big voices were influenced by her ability to make a really beautiful song, very aggressive. A lot of the early songs were about earning the respect of other people, mainly men. Then, after you get comfortable with yourself, you get into your own sexuality. For my daughters, I would want them to be inspired by something like that.” Janelle Monáe, singer and actress “Janet’s cultural impact can’t be quantified. She did something very important for female artists everywhere by being fearless in her approach to music. Janet made it clear that we, as female artists, can and should craft our own sound and control our self-image. When I listen to her outstanding award-winning catalogue it reminds me daily that being carefree is as important as being socially conscious. Her approach to art has been groundbreaking and deeply personal. For an artist like myself, knowing that Janet exists provides me the freedom to be exactly who I am. Her thoughtful and incredible journey allows me safe-passage as I continue with my artistic endeavors. [Janet being inducted to the Hall of Fame means] that every black girl from a small town has the potential to tap into what makes them unique and has the power to change the world. Janet is from Gary, Indiana and I’m from Kansas City, Kansas. As a woman from the Midwest, watching her ascend higher and higher means so much to me. Janet’s revolutionary acts through art defy categorization. Her uniqueness and global impact solidifies that she is one of one. There is no one like her in the Rock Hall. To be clear—- there is only one Janet.” Mary Lambert, director “I think it’s just fabulous that the industry is recognizing her as an artistI directed [the videos for] “Control” and “Nasty” and it was a transitional period for Janet. It was a really tumultuous period. She was just exploding with creativity and talent, and also the emotional things you go through when you’re a young person [at] that age. She was really struggling to get away from the domination of her father at that time. The family dynamics were intense. They would’ve cracked and broken a weaker person than Janet. She really handled it all with so much grace and sweetness. The thing I remember most about [working with] her is the sweetness of her voice and her presence. It was one of the sweetest, most affecting work relationships that I ever had with somebody. She just has a beautiful, beautiful heart and soul.” Ciara, singer “I think it’s major because she also joined her brothers [in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame]. I think it was well deserved. It was long overdue, to be honest. To see it finally happen [is] amazing and a special moment in music history, obviously for her, but also for us female artists. It’s something that continues to give more hope to other female entertainers. When you see women like her get acknowledged, it’s very inspiring. While she is being honored, she is still thinking of other women. I think that’s very special and I think it’s very necessary for us to continue to break through as women. I’m really happy for her. As a friend I’m really proud of her and as an artist I’m really grateful for her contribution to music, and how much impact she’s had, not only on the music industry, but also on artists like myself. She and I have become friends over the years. I look at her as a big sister, honestly. Beyond who she is as a performer, she’s an incredible person. I think more than anything, I just admire who she is not only as a woman but also as a mom. She and I probably just have more conversations about normal life [than anything else]. We get to have that real sister moment in those times that we chat. It’s really cool. You grow up and you see women who you admire, [who] inspire you and then you end up becoming friends with those women. It’s very special.” Gil Duldulao, creative director “She’s a fighter, no matter what adversity it is. I think that’s what I take from her journey. No one thought she could come back after having a child or [after] all of the journeys she’s had with different men. Or, even after the Super Bowl. Let’s just be real. Every bit of the world just put her [to] the side [but] she stayed on that course and she kept fighting and believing in herself. She had patience. She knew we’d be here at this moment.” Normani, singer “I know for a fact that my first encounter with Janet goes back beyond my earliest memories. My mom used to play Janet records in the car even before I learned how to talk. Janet was hands down my mom’s favorite artist. I remember evenings where we’d all huddle up together in our living room and watch old Janet videos on our TV. I still vividly remember nights where my family and I would all sit by the TV waiting for her to hit the stage and steal the show. Janet will forever remain one of the greatest and polarizing artists of all time for generations and generations to come. She is a visionary, an innovator and a true icon. Janet’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is such a deserving moment for her and an inspiration to myself and women not only in music, but around the world. She is the quintessential example of how hard work, perseverance, and staying true to who you are as an artist and person will pay off… especially in the climate [of] today’s “man’s world”. Her perseverance from the early stages of her career, when she was constantly compared to others including her siblings—being the youngest and a girl—is truly inspiring as she was able to navigate her career and create her own destiny of greatness. Representation matters and having more women like Janet inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame shows young girls and women from all walks of life, whether they have dreams of being a one of the biggest artists in the world or whatever it is that they aspire to be, that if you work hard and take real ownership in everything you do, then you can achieve whatever it is you set out to do. I admire a woman [who] can create a strong vision for herself and is able to chase after it and execute.” Teyana Taylor, singer “Janet, Janet, Janet! Her influence has been so strong on me, because I admire her sexuality, passion, and ability to demand a room. She’s the reason why I love this. Putting passion, love, and soul on stage and creating sexy music. Not only sexy though, but music that really tells a story and hits home for all of us. Too many legends fail to get their just due while they are here. It’s something that my generation definitely needs to do: embrace and learn from all of the legends while they are still here! However, the legend, the icon, Janet Jackson deserves all of her roses now! Let’s love on her and appreciate her more than we already do, she’s changed the game!” Harmony Samuels, producer “I’ve been a fan of Janet’s since the ‘80s. I think I was about five years old [when I became a fan]. When I got the call [to work with Janet], I thought it was a joke. Working with her was probably one of the hardest tasks I’ve had to do. I had to really find something that I felt like Janet hadn’t experienced yet. I had to research. This woman has touched so many genres of music and still been the same person. She’s just an icon. She’s really one of the first females to do as much as she’s done and still is as relevant today. This is a huge moment for her. She deserves it. She’s a black female who has worked very hard and is multifaceted. I think it inspires more black women that they can achieve those kind of great things. Some of the older female superstars that we had [didn’t get] in those spaces.” Anthony Thomas, choreographer “When [Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814] came out, we came back the next day and we knew what our mission was. We knew the project was special, we just had no idea what it was going to do. When we were in the eye of the storm, we had no idea the type of funk destruction that was going on all around us. To see it 30 years later...it’s gained steam with this new generation.” These interviews have been edited and condensed for clarity.

She's not gonna entertain the bullshit, I wouldnt either

    Y'all are funny. Seriously though, how does this change the pop trajectory? Does this make Madonna the King of Pop? Did Prince ultimately win the battle? Does this officially make Janet the best Jackson? What is Lady Gaga going to do with all that MJ memoribilia? Can Justin, Chris Brown, Usher still copy MJ without being judged? What does this all mean?

    I can't stand Oprah. She got so much energy for MJ yet has said not one word against Harvey W. She also said nothing about R Kelly who lived in Chicago for decades while her show was there. She has a special hate for MJ and I'd like to know why.

    Honestly, there is no doubt in my mind there’s a new album coming early next year. Besides “Made For Now”, there’s a song she recorded with Jimmy and Terry called “Take Em Down” that we know about. At this point, we know she’s been recording since late 2017 until late 2018/now. She’s clearly been working on this now soon to be album for a while enough where we know she has many songs to release. Like I said in my own #JJ12 album thread, I expect Janet to talk about motherhood and more social issues going on now a days with the #MetooMovement as well maybe happier music than “Unbreakable”. I honestly believe this will be a much happier album because she seems more free and energetic than she’s ever been honestly in a while. I honestly hope she goes with the theme of “Made For Now”, an album about living in the moment and not take life for granted no matter what! 🙂

    If Janet is not in complete "Im moved and inspired to create material for a full new project" ...then why would we want a thrown together album? Norman, I'm confused.. you're the same man that talks about the uninspired Janet albums that were trash but want her to make an album when it's more than clear that she's not moved to. You are tripping. Give us an EP til she's ready to REALLY create. I want another Unbreakable,TVR,RN ..we ain't gone get it if she juss put an album together cus "people been talking about an album...idk, I'm not sure what I want"

    It’s at 20 million views for the first freaking week and it’s catchy. No matter what happens I think it’s a good song and if people don’t wanna support it it’s their loss . The video should be recognized and this should be performed at the Super Bowl .Janet is on another level and we all know it .
