      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.

Bruno Mars/MJ “collab” coming soon?!

Recommended Posts



JACKIE JACKSON says a short drive from his house is all it takes to bring music legend brother Michael to mind – and start the tears flowing.

Jackie, eldest of the Jackson brothers, lives in Las Vegas where a Cirque du Soleil Michael Jackson show is a massive attraction.

So, even after nearly a decade since the Thriller star’s death in 2009, his image is still everywhere.

“I still miss him very much,” Jackie, 66, tells iN10.

“Every time I go to the Strip and stop at a red light, there’s a bus or a billboard with Michael’s face all over it.

“It seems to happen without fail, seeing him right beside me. I say, ‘Hey, little brother’ and he says, ‘Hey, Jackie, what’s going on?’

“He’s always there with me and my eyes get teary, but with a smile.”

Jackie, who’ll be playing in Scotland with his brothers at Scotfest this summer, insists he’s so proud of the work his younger brother did.

Jackie says Bruno Mars was working on some of Michael’s music earlier this year and it’s indicative of its staying power.

“It’s still around because it’s great music,” he adds.

“That’s what happens with great music, it lives on because that’s what people want to hear.

“The songs put you in a happy state or in a sad state. There’s something for every mood.”

The Jacksons will be star attractions at Scotfest at the beginning of July. Boyzone, B*witched, Liberty X, Five and East 17 are among the other acts on the bill.

Jermaine, Tito and Marlon will, as usual, be alongside Jackie on stage but having performed with Michael since his earliest childhood, he still feels the loss.

“You never forget those days,” says Jackie.

“We’ve been out there performing without him for years now but at any given time we know where he was going to be on that stage.

“We feel the emotional vibration all the time. It gives us a big charge because he’d have given 110% and that’s what we try to do to.

“No one could do what he did but we try to do the best we can knowing he’s up there on stage with us.”

It’s as high-energy a routine as ever and Jackie admits he hits the gym to get in shape before taking to the road.

The workout sessions start at 5am as he has a full family life.

He and third wife Emily have four-year-old twin boys, River and Jaylen, and Jackie gets back from his workouts to get them ready for school.

“I love being a dad,” says Jackie.

“They know every Jacksons song, every Janet Jackson song, every Michael Jackson song. They’re pretty sharp boys and can do all the routines. I watch them and reminisce as they’re doing all the things I used to do.

“I can see myself in them when I was their age. I spend my days running after them. They like me to act as a big bear and chase them.

“They keep me fit. It’s a great thing if you are an older dad as it keeps you sharp and active.”

Jackie insists he’s never lost his love of music and has his own label where he’s been working with a French duo called Gold Lemonade.

“I love finding hot acts and seeing producers and record companies get interested in them.”

Jackie is no stranger to Scotland, both from big Jacksons tours and also from holiday visits.

But with a nice lifestyle in Las Vegas – Celine Dion lives two doors away, Chris Tucker two doors the other way – isn’t there a temptation to put his feet up enjoy home life.

“I don’t think like that,” he adds. “My boys love watching their uncles and myself performing.

“Of course you like to be home with your kids but after a break I want to get right back out there.

“It’s great exercise for me and it’s what we do best. I’m at my happiest when I’m on stage, especially when my family can be there too.

“My wife is from Amsterdam so when we go to Europe she’ll come with the boys.

“She’ll go and visit her family and friends and then we’ll all hook up.”

Everything Jackson-related is vague, so nothing new there.

But I will remind folks that every posthumous MJ project has always began with vague info from the people involved dropping hints in interviews and/or on social media.

And Jackie is the only Jackson sibling who’s literally on the MJ Estate’s payroll as a consultant and has had a hand in nearly every project that has been released since 2011. So he probably knows what he’s talking about.

But ultimately who knows 🤷🏻‍♂️
