      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.

Oooo they so sensitive. :rolleyes:

I'm starting to feel very unwanted and very unappreciated almost like Christina's white genes or Janet after the Super Bowl fiasco. 

what did I do? what did I do? I didn't mean it! It's stoopid! It's stoopid.

*Note: that is the first and last time I will ever quote WDIGM2*-_-

How is Christina a culture vulture when she's actually been praising Blacks and tributing them since she was a child? There's a reason why NO ONE has ever called Christina that so let's not. As for Bruno i've never liked him, he's talented, but he does nothing for me and he's ugly. Justin has been using blacks as his marketing machine since he went solo and the one time he had a chance to help a Black person who was drowning he didn't even throw out a life jacket. I ain't got time. Your analogy was a fail.

Oh? So Justin NEVER praised blacks or did a tribute to any of them? :blink: 

The reason is bc she’s not popular anymore 

Justin has been hired by black artists 🤦🏾‍♂️ he’s all over the A-lister’s most wanted list. From Drake to Jay-Z to Beyoncé. How does that work? JT doesn’t steal airtime

I'm really just being silly. I get annoyed at the whole appropriating culture discussions, but you can't belittle one artist when your fav is out here doing the exact same thing... only they dress it up better.

I remember loving Gwen Stefani when she came out with LAMB, my visible appreciation of her was met with 'Oh so you're okay with he appropriating Asian culture...she is a culture vulture '..but I didn't understand because when she started the project she said she was heavily influenced by the Harajuku Girl culture..she praised them on every interview but since she made money off of it, she is an appropriating culture bitch. I can't even listen to her album anymore...It makes me feel like a cat in heat stuck in a moving car.-_-

You are such an idiot. :lmao:

Im so glad the only other person I stan for is Erykah Badu. I never feel the need to defend her...her brilliance speaks for itself and I got my life when she started singing Let's Wait Awhile at the Soul Train Awards...:D

Anywho...carry on...

According to Jarryl.. Xtina & Bruno aren’t white so... despite the fact that Xtina didn’t grow up poor and her mother was white.

despite the fact that Xtina grew up in the Mickey Mouse Club...alongside JT

Let’s ignore the fact that instead of calling a black woman to do a tribute to Whitney... they called a half-white/half Latina woman 🤔

Xtina gets a pass bc she’s orange and spins in a chair for a career now 

and no..that’s not racism towards white people at all :coffee: 

 

I guess you missed when Jennifer Hudson did a tribute to Whitney. Don't get mad cause Black families wanted Xtina to do tribute to their loved ones who passed including Whitney's family. Oh well :)

Point is Bruno, Cardi, Christina are ally's & arent appropriators,  Justin is. And how he is and why they arent has been layed out in full already. Stop trying to change the truth & change your understandings. Latinos have been apart of hiphop culture since the beginning, and in Christinas prime she was name dropping long forgotten & underappreciated black Jazz, soul & blues artists that nobody else was, and her spanish roots been showing as loud as her voice since her debut single.

Hes comparable to Bieber, Gwen Stafani,  & Nick Jonas. Stop comparing him to proud biracial Latinos like it's the same as being white and borrowing for a look or sound but stay on the pop fence when shit gets rough & real, cause its not & never has been :coffee:

So basically they’re none white therefore they’re allies. That’s a very convenient argument :umm: You can add JLo to that list btw

So White People, except Xtina, are the only race that can’t be inspired or influenced by black culture despite them saying so early in his or her career.... got it

"convenient" but true in this case, and duh, Jennifer Lopez is actually a great example of it, hispanics have been apart of Hip Hop culture since the beginning, its their culture too to certain extents, AND .....Jennifer was a fucking flygirl, she's been about hip hop since then, their allies too because it's apart of their roots too, the struggle & understanding it too.

Well you got it wrong. If you as a artist are a dabbler, and only dabbling in fun little things and only there representing 1 part of a culture, and when it's convenient for them, but not giving any insight or help to the causes, you're an appropriator like Justin and not an appreciator like Eminem. Get that.B)

I'm sorry but... Xtina went through her "ghetto" phase and tanned her skin to look more Latina only when it was convenient for her during the Dirrty era. Once she was done "rebelling" she turned light again. That's worse than anything Justin did. And like Game said, they both had the same origin at the Micky Mouse Club, so Xtina does not have any more "cred" than he does.

Sure she does, because she was doing R&B & Jazz since the very beginning, she's been doing music in Spanish since the very beginning, and most importantly she was speaking up about BB King, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, & Herbie Handcock all throughout her career. Her image she switches up, she appropriated her image being ghetto for 1 era, but she's been R&B/Jazz/Blues/&Spanish and has been a supporter of the BLM movement and has proven to be knowledgeable about music roots, her Spanish ones and hip hop & R&B. Also, she's never countered a BLM discussion with an ALM redirect, so yea she has more than him, she was ghetto for a era but she's been an ally her entire career. (and again there were lots of ethnicities in the club)

Basically your point would be staunch if she ONLY did R&B, Hip Hop & songs in spanish for that 1 era. But she only did being ghetto 1 era.

You're reaching hun. She played up her latina roots when it suited her to differentiate herself from Britney Spears and that's all. She could have been a proud Latina with her natural skin color.

Thank you! Some people need to do their research. As if it's against the law to tan. Christina tanned for her "Come On Over" video too. and mind you she did a Spanish album way before her "Stripped" album.  I ain't got time.

Image wise what you're saying is true, but factually she's been a proud latina since  her debut single (which she also recorded & released in spanish). Fact she's done more work in spanish and R&B, Jazz & blues in her natural skin color and with her bleach blonde hair than she has the 1 era she was orange.
