      Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

  1. Something new

    I think the goal with this era was to mix other eras. Honestly I didn't like the white liner under her eye during the UB era. But I guess the best is when she looks the most natural to me. VR & Janet era vibe.
  2. Something new

    I always feel the make up makes her look older and at times the design can be kinda draggish - and her make up looks BEST when she is smiling. She's a beautiful woman seriously. Naturally so.
  3. She looks really good. Janet with no make up always looks younger and even better.

    Whoever she's texting is important lol.

    I didn't initially care for Slo Love either but I love it now.

    From the tracks we've heard that did not make the album - the unreleased we have, is there much of a difference in your opinion?

    Now this I can understand but let's also keep the time table in perspective. Super Bowl was February, and had EVERY intention on being the promo start for DJ which was released a month later. DJ was already done. She already had that direction & that's where she was at the time. I believe she COULD have fought back but avoided it and her back was against the wall but the timetable she didn't really have time to do that. The album was done.

    I'm not counting interludes as "staple tracks" I'm showing how the interludes - like they always had were the thread of the theme. "How empty of me to be so full of you", "We're in a race between education & catastrophe", "To a world sick with racism get well soon", "You know you want me" Each of those interludes were threading between tracks. They showed the theme, direction, insight of creative thought, deliberate concept of tracks & album. Janet has had multiple songs that mention sex throughout the years but I don't consider them sexual songs. AFY is about being single & independent & guys fear to approach but she talks about him having a nice package to ride. You're willfully missing the concept by watering the tracks down. Janet was LITERALLY creating that album in honeymoon phase with her & JD. From island hopping to fucking continuously she was back in love. You just didn't like what she felt at that time. Now what could be argued is she avoided the heat and didn't fight back against what she was facing. So she came out with an album diverting the attention but nonetheless most of the album was already done. It came out in March so it shows you where she was before the fiasco.

    I agree about Discipline. 20YO literally was a contractual obligation she was trying to fulfill. She gave the label something so she could be done. I disagree with DJ - you can't say she had something to say including sexuality & vulnerability - then say DJ she had nothing to say when it was an expansion on those topics based on her current position in life. Vulnerability - Looking for Love, The One, Spending Time With You, Truly, My Baby, Thinking Bout My Ex, Slo Love Sexuality - Strawberry Bounce, Sexihibition, Warmth Damita Jo title track was about you guys think you've known Janet up to this point but there's more to the story.

    Honestly, I think DJ had a very easy to read theme & it literally was a representation of her life at the time. She had JUST went public with JD & they had been dating in honeymoon phase for a while - their entire relationship became REAL while on an island vacation together. Which is why the album predominantly sounds like it's rooted on an island. He was introducing/influencing new sides of herself i.e. Atlanta's strip club culture - which introduced us to Strawberry Bounce. The whole album talks about love in a very new found way...those many characters reference was a direct correlation to the fact of her being her FULL self at the time in this new relationship. It sounds personally like AFY without the independence of being single. The only songs I'm not crazy about are LYDLM & ANDS - which gets a pass because I love the choreography & like to see it performed live but the song has always been kinda eh. Lastly, it has some great ballads IWY & TBME, and ummm Janet & JD both are major fans of oral which has always been rumored (from multiple women he's been with) to be something he's great at - which is why the sex tracks were centered around oral. The song not only had theme it was relevant to where she was.
  11. Discipline photoshoot – NEW OUTTAKES

    There was no concept to Discipline. There were just songs & to make it SEEM like there was a concept she basically would use the definition of discipline to sell it. I don't think the album was bad though but it didn't have a concept

    I like Island Life more personally too, and I kinda get what you're saying but STCML has a lot of life and energy in it. The Island Life performance live sounds very good but the highlight moments vocally she doesn't really go into.

    Oh lol sorry - it's quite possible it'll happen again. So when she does it'll be interesting to see if it's in Atlanta & it'll be dope if Atlanta gets both with Scream. Atlanta is going to be an epic show.

    Knowing that she might do STCML instead of IL makes me happy I went to the Dallas show so I can catch both of them if she does it in Atlanta. This is really dope.

    I got sooooo hype when I saw this!!! I've wanted her to do that for awhile. I also am praying one day she does Because of Love again. And that's the point I have ALWAYS made & said - this tour Janet literally has listened & proven me very right. Switching it up gives fans an element of surprise that is very major. It also adds the "live" trust in your show. Never knowing what to expect. All I can say is - Atlanta is about to be very epic! I hope a lot of you are there.
  16. New Song? (VIDEO)

    I don't know that I trust this & although it's decent it feels very dated & George Michael. I'd like to see Janet head in a different directions. I'd LOVE to see Janet tackle a vibe as big as Lemon. I always wanted to see her actually get something that moves with Pharrell. I know they did Ruff but something that makes the album and hits!
  17. New pictures: Janet and Eissa in Central Park

    What was Gil wrong about? What did I miss?
  18. It sounds to me that they've compiled rumors over the months that have come out & then embellished them. Rumor that Janet & JD are back together, and then Janet's ppl responding that they're just friends. JD is posting how she stole his look flirtingly. Then Randy claiming she was abused and felt like a prisoner so they add that with fluff around it. It just seems too detailed, like one poster said, & it seems random that they would be the source. I did laugh when they said - Janet called JD so Wissam could hear her do it lol, I could envision that. Not that I'm saying it's true at all, but beyond the glitz & glam Janet is human & she's a woman who knows men. Janet also VERY MUCH so has an attitude side that can be intense. It's part of what I love about her - "a little lady, a whole lot of class, but do me wrong I'll get in that ass."
  19. Janet at her Halloween Party

    Damn I want to see full body. She really looks like Ertha Kitt. This is dope!
  20. Am I the only one just hearing this for the first time today?!! I can hear Janet clear as day, but I would like to know if anyone else can & where they hear her (time stamps)
  21. Honestly, I highly doubt Janet would touch the NFL again especially not now in the midst of the all the racial angst and tension. IF she ever were to do it, it damn sure doesn't need to be on a stage with Justin Timberlake. She should never share another stage with him. As far as the Super Bowl if the NFL wasn't so consumed in their bigotry - I wouldn't be mad at her for doing it. But fuck them, they helped ruin her career & made her have to rebuild damn all over again. I wouldn't allow them to dictate whether or not she's worthy.
  22. Atlanta - Closing Night

    Question for everyone - How many people are coming to Atlanta for closing night?

    nah I don't think that has anything to do with her voice we were just all kinda tired of it being the go to ballad. It's been out for 24 years and it's the first time she hasn't performed it. I'm seriously cool with that.

    I know Gil had been trying to get her to come out that shell. There's a lot of things she's done on this tour that has made it one of her best tours. She's never been so direct as her opening is - it's actually chilling when you watch it. The sound bites are direct and epic. Her performing nonsingles FINALLY gives that mystique to her shows that I've always talked about - nearly EVERY fan wants to see her explore her catalog. Gil knows that. His pulse with the fans is solid & this might be his best creative direction so far IMO. Fans fall in love with your catalog not just your singles. Matter of fact, less with singles. This tour shows her versatility musically & it also reminds people she's been more than a sex symbol. It's the most successful pull off of "classic me with a modern twist" this is what it was always supposed to look like. It's very purposeful that she's leaned into her most nostalgic & iconic look.
