    Cool fan-made video of Janet

    I don't think he should grossly misrepresent information, which I think he avoided doing. If he had the information you presented he should have definitely used it, but even with it, he didn't state anything un-plausible. Moreover, he should have argued that Rhythm Nation isn't one of the greatest albums of all time mostly because it had hits and and sold alot. Though I think he went into the depths of the recording process sufficiently, he didn't exactly answer why should we still be listening to the album today.

    It's more than this thread, but if there's nothing more than critique I'll kill it. He probably did use a little liberty, I just didn't think that that was the real issue with the video.

    Honestly if some of you don't like Lamont's video, why dont you make video that you feel better represents Janet's impact? The main criticism (over reliance on chart stats, sales and awards) is completely justified, but it seems that things has gotten personal with him.

    I only agree with that he should have not insinuated that the Tokyo shows had 55k people each. But he only stated that number as the capacity. But other than that, some of the criticisms seem nitpicky and overdramatic. That said, I think he overemphasized on the chart success where he could have discussed the artistic impact and influence in the industry more. It should have aimed to show the Janet was not just another pop star.

    Made For Now Radio Promo Tour

    Perhaps Janet isn't quite ready to take on a full album and the EP is just an engine to promote other projects in the near future.
  6. Probably because Live Nation wants her to make up for the canceled dates on Unbreakable. I think Janet hears everyone, but like everything else that's occured this past year, it takes time for things to come to fruition and to be executed properly. We just might have to keep our shirts in for a little longer.

    Janet For Super Bowl 2019 Halftime Show

    That's a no for me dawg.
  8. I'm one of the few that actually like Weekend.

    "Made For Now" Single Dropping Soon

    My point still stands. It was ok at best. Spending Time With was a superior mellow track imo. Eh, I think Janet should have fought for her projects more, but that' another topic.

    "Made For Now" Single Dropping Soon

    Where exactly?!? It's grown at me, but I don't really see the hype. R&B radio wasn't gonna play it. Urban AC might had, but it wouldn't have legs to it. DJ probably would have been better received (by critics) if it was released now, as she is no longer in her prime, but I don't hear much that would have taken off in 2004. Definitely not My Baby!!!! I think Sexhibition would have done well with a decent rap feature. It didn't necessarily fit with what was popular then, but it was definitely a Janet Jackson song that could have appealed to some non-fans. Spending time with you would have caught on on urban AC.

    It wouldn't have mattered either way.

    Janet snaps on Twitter

    But has Janet ever directly interacted with him? And did she already address it in her Billboard speech?
  15. Next stop....RIAA. One could hope....
  16. Eh, the only place where I am hearing major complaints is over at the Xone.
  17. But are the tour and festivals projects?

    FYE Festival Canceled

    I was saying that the articles didn't really emphasize that. But like I said, you can look how that other festivals are shaping up.

    FYE Festival Canceled

    That's my point. That's her main demo and she performed there already, so nothing won't likely really happen there outside of her control. I just don't want Janet taking heat from the fallout if it isn't warranted, but most articles I've read haven't really emphasized her being a major part of the festival.

    FYE Festival Canceled

    But you can't blame her this time. I think the problem was that the founder was going through some sexual assault/harassment allegations hence the festival struggling. Hopefully Janet can just book another date. Also, if you think her demand or lack thereof is an issue, you can also see how the other festivals are shaping up. Essence is probably gonna be OK though.

    The Official Legendtina Aguilera Thread

    It's one of those songs that you have to "find" for it to grow on you. At first listen it seems like the beats, the song, and the ad libs run together and it comes off as a lot of noise. But once you see where the song is going, it's not too bad, it's pretty forgettable though. And who told her to do that to her lips?????
  22. There was a behind the scenes of the open auditions that aired on HBO last night.
