  1. OT: Why is a Korean Award show held in Hong Kong and not Seoul?
  2. ^ Yeah. Only thing I can say is that she dropped to ponytail for once.
  3. Honestly I think it will cause the Hall to look more at urban contemporary acts. This will definitely pave the way for Mary J Blige, Alicia Keys, TLC etc.
  4. Excited for Janet and the fans who have supported her through thick and thin.
  5. I'm gonna be honest. If Janet is indeed announced, I hope rock fans don't come out with pitchforks and torches over it.
  6. My expectations weren't high.

    Post 3 Janet songs you’ll never see it for

    Island Life - The hype fans give this song 🤦🏽‍♂️. Rock Witchu - I give it props in some respects but never really moved me. Runaway - Nothing get more middle-of-the-road than this.

    Janet to Headline Tom Joyner Cruise in 2019

    I thought the Groupon thing was successful. I know at least in my city (Chicago) they sold out pretty quickly. I think some of the struggles were emphasized during the earlier run of the tour. But things is as people found out that she was on tour, things started to improved. The only people embarassed about the Groupon things are some nitpicky fans. Most people didn't really care, mostly because that was the first major promotional tool. I'm not a fan of how it impacted the gross though.

    I'm not dismissing anything, but do you things Janet should do absolutely nothing until Europe dates are announced?

    If some want to complain about Europe, great. I just stay out of those discussions. I just don't see how that has anything to do with the topic at hand. Doing the cruise doesn't necessarily mean she's flipping the bird at Europe.

    But you can't say she isn't making any moves just because were not hearing anything. Everything we're saying is mere speculation at this point. I agree with Game. This should be another thread.

    Well she can't make certain decisions simply to pacify others. I'm honestly waiting too, but we can't control how everything is executed. Maybe stating you'll be happy with a random performance at Trafalgar Square might make things a little easier to plan. *shrugs*

    I would like for Janet to get back to Europe but y'all act like her team can simply snap its fingers and have dates announced. It's only one fucking event for crying out loud......

    Let's be clear. Denny's is the sponsor. Janet's not directly endorsing Denny's.

    Janet to Headline Tom Joyner Cruise in 2019

    But it's only one cruise among other ventures. You making it seems like she booked that, the Soul Train Cruise, Cincinnati Fest, plus rolled out an ensemble tour with other 80s R&B acts.

    Some of the reactions are very dramatic imo. There seems to be a case if amnesia where people forgot that she did do ventures in attempt to reach a younger mainstream audience with success. I stand by my opinion that cruises can be a bit cheesy, but if she want to perform for people who had her back through her troughs while giving to a great cause, it wont be the end of the world.

    Yeah, I can see her having Tom Joyner's back and giving to a cause, but cruises just come off so cheesy.

    Janet Named the 2018 MTV EMA Global Icon!!

    Part of it makes me glad that Janet is really pulling her weight though.

    The Janet Jackson Charts Thread

    I think we are better discussing how Madonna pulled away from Janet.

    All For You vs. Unbreakable

    I always thought Would You Mind was one of her non-single classics. It seems to be well received outside to fanbase. It seems only the fans really dislike it.

    Big Bang Theory to End after 12 seasons

    It was the number one show this past season, so ratings don't seem to be the issue.

    Cool fan-made video of Janet

    No, no, no. I agree with you here. That's why I didn't think it was a big deal that he took some liberties.

    ^ I admit I dont watch his videos like that, so it's a little harder to see some of the points made.

    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.

    Cool fan-made video of Janet

    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.
