1: Yh EP's are cheaper to produce, distribute and promote, they're usually done as a introduction into a new sound, era, look ect...thought it was common sense
As I ALREADY stated above, the reason may be the album isn't ready and she wants material out to keep her name current and out there musically.
2: And? She can't try new things? Explore different avenues? When has Queen ever been boring and predictable?
3: Yes there is, she testing out a new sound, she's exploring new looks
4: Who said she didnt? She's obviously expanding her reach BEYOND her fanbase, she's going bigger, international, this is a digital era, not 2001, everything is instant and NOW, Janet and her tea realizes this.
5: She never did an afrobeats song neither, so why start now? Stupid question but you get the point.
I know youre one of those janet fans that's probably been around for decades and you think you know better than anyone else, so everyone else's opinions, views, ect are un-important to you, but if you don't agree it's ok, but don't make people feel as though you're shitting on their opinions.
