    Prince must be turning in his grave.....

    I see this commercial all the time, and I totally agree - it makes me cringe. Prince would detest this. How did they get the rights to this? His family looking to make a quick buck??
  2. I really think this movie and soundtrack are are about to actually be epic. This song is gorgeous.

    Was Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" a masterpiece?

    Look, I actually don’t care for some of Gaga’s ALBUMS, to be perfectly honest (including The Fame). I think they can be a bit lazy and a little “throw everything at ‘em but the kitchen sink” in their production choices. But her versatility as an artist and vocalist is what makes her incredibly relevant in today’s landscape. In 10 years she’s won Grammys for pop (nominated for Born this way too), won a Grammy for an entire jazz album with freakin Tony Bennet and went out on a sold out tour with him, won a Golden Globe for acting, performed a flawless tribute to The Sound of Music on the Oscars, which was praised by Julie Andrews herself, made a semi-country tinged album, which was a 180 turn from her pop roots, and now is in contention for an Oscar for acting just a year or two removed from having an Oscar nominating original song That versatility is just not common.

    They mean quite a bit when folks try to diminish an artist’s impact in the industry.

    Correction. 6 Grammys. 19 nominations.

    Except, you know, those 3 grammy’s (six nominations). You are just a ray of sunshine, aren’t you?
  7. Cooper directed this movie. I think it’s clear that his talent was never “marginal.” You may assume so because he’s hot, but that is a pretty shallow assumption. A Star is Born is now the 2nd highest opening in history for any “musical” type film, only behind “Beauty and the Beast,” which was a children’s movie, and not an R rated adult movie. To compare it to the opening of a super hero movie is silly.

    All For You vs. Unbreakable

    For singles? AFY. As an entire piece of art? Unbreakable.
  9. It is the song from the original trailer, and it is a single. But anyway.
  10. Your wish is granted this Friday “Shallow” (from original trailer) will be released
  11. No this snippet just came out tonight. The soundtrack comes out the same day as the movie - Oct. 5.

    Big Bang Theory to End after 12 seasons

    It lasted 12 seasons too long IMO. NEVER have I found that show to be funny.
  13. I guess they just got real lazy with all this. Not surprising.
  14. This looks like ‘93 or ‘94 Janet so they are claiming she was cheating on Rene with Bobby?

    VMAs prediction?

    This is why I’ve never been a Madonna stan. While I’ve bought and enjoyed my share of her music, she’s just always been utterly self absorbed and a nasty “mean girl.” It’s never been cute, and still isn’t.
  16. I think I would agree with your rankings!

    Made For Now Music Video

    Upon first listen / viewing - fresh, uplifting song and video. Made me smile, and J looks wonderful. The video's definitely got more punch than those made on Unbreakable. Gonna have to let the song marinate a little to determine if I really like it or not.

    Your Janet Top 10!!! ❤️❤️❤️

    1. Favorite Janet Song - Love Will Never Do (always puts me in my happy place no matter what) 2. Favorite Janet Tour - The Velvet Rope (duh) 3. Favorite Movie Janet Starred In - Poetic Justice 4. Favorite Janet Album - The Velvet Rope 5. Favorite Janet Iconic Outfit - The look for "That's the Way Love Goes" And "If" Videos. Just plain sexy 6. Favorite Janet collaboration - This isn't a duet or anything, Janet with Jimmy and Terry. Runner up - Tina Landon 7. Favorite Janet Deep Cut - Tonight's the Night 8. Most Underrated Janet Album - Unbreakable - while this understandably got generally very favorable reviews, the quality of the project deserved accolades in my opinion. The work of a true artist. 9. Most Overrated Janet Album - All For You (2 great singles, though) 10. Least Favorite Janet Tour - Unbreakable / SOTW - not because it's bad, but it's just not the scale and overall energy of the past BIG tours, which would be hard for J to match at this point in her career. Still great, though!
  20. She looks great doing this.

    "Made For Now" Single Dropping Soon

    Wrong. It’s a lead single from a new project. All the hoopla around Unbreakable was that after several flop attempts of breaking away from them in the mid 2000’s, she had finally made it back to JJ/TL and the magic was still there. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. (God I remember saying that several times in the Janet forum 10-12 years ago) That being said, the song could certainly surprise. We shall see. Here’s hoping.

    "Made For Now" Single Dropping Soon

    Couldn’t agree more. She finally comes back after all those years away with a freakin masterpiece with Jimmy / Terry, and now she wants to get away from them again on the very next project??? SO not here for that. ??
