  1. This announcement could've waited until like September. Now we on pins and needles for damn near a year.

  2. Fuck him. I don’t accept his fake ass apology. I will never forget going on to her official forum right after the SuperBowl. They had to shut it down due to the extreme traffic (they had over 1,000 users). And most of all, the racism. I had never seen the N word written so many times in my life and the amount of times she was called a monkey. And the place wasn’t moderated. It slowly woke up the activist in me and to see him be complicit on watching a legend be destroyed and it took him getting dragged because of his relationship with a white woman to apologize? Nah. Fuck JT. Forever. I don’t care that he tried to give out weak ass statements before and he can add this one to the list. And if anyone wants to tell me that Janet is over it and/or she forgave him, all I can say is that I don’t care. I have kept the same energy for years now and will for the rest of my life. And that’s on Mary had a little lamb.

  4. I simply had to make this video... I know some fans gave up and don't expect anything from Janet and her team regarding her legacy, but the fact that dozens of music videos are blocked, unavailable or not even on YT at all is frustrating asf. Feel free to share/tag!

  7. They’re classics. It’s why I can be unimpressed with other bodies of work that come from other artists because I’ve seen it before already. There are little things Janet can do and I’ve noticed more tweets about her have been gaining some traction. She should have her team capitalize on it. 2018 was the perfect time to do it because she was on a roll with visibility and tributes. We all stuck in the house. She can get her videos on YouTube and update her certifications.

  8. Well a Sunday seems nice and chill. I think a evening for us in the UK/Europe would be your afternoon in the US? Should we suggest a week from this coming Sunday? That would give enough time for some people to see the thread and decide if they wanna be part of it or not. Ive atted a few but, if you guys can think of anymore that somewhat still come here... @Aquaria @Bailey @Jakob @JoeJoe @Mr. Wonder

  12. Hold on. YES, we know the media can be manipulating and project a skewed agenda to fit a certain narrative. Thats COMMON KNOWLEDGE, however....Trump only uses the "FAKE NEWS" phrase to deflect and draw attention away from his reckless actions and shady dealings that have been DOCUMENTED. So yeah, its only "fake news" when ppl find out his dirt. So he is hardly the person to be trying to stick up for with your "whether you like Trump or not" speech. Its a ploy for him. Nothing else...so please Stop before you get too far ahead. This is Trump we're speaking about. You dont reside in America, correct? If not, then please sit this one out cus you guys are HEARING about what goin on with Trump, while we're EXPERIENCING whats goin on with Trump

  13. If you like Trump or not, can we at least agree that he is absolutely right about the fake news media? They've done literally anything to destroy MJ and JJ's legacy. Donald Trump might not be ideal, but he knows dammn well how the media works. Whether Janet (secretly) supports Trump or not, I think the main reason she liked and commented to that post was because of what Randy wrote down about how the mainstream media manipulates shit and try to make certain people look extremely bad. Janet knows this too and so does Trump.

  14. Janet Jackson’s life story will get the documentary treatment next year from Lifetime and A&E to celebrate the 40th anniversary of her first album. At its virtual upfront today, the A+E Networks group highlighted its upcoming programming slate and announced that Lifetime and A&E have ordered a two-night, four-hour documentary event with the working titled “JANET.” Jackson’s first album, titled “Janet Jackson,” was released in 1982 when she was 16. The documentary, co-produced by Workerbee and Associated Entertainment Corporation, promises to offer unprecedented access to the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s life, and an intimate, honest and unfiltered look at the untold story of one of the highest-earning artists in music history. Filming on “JANET” has been under way for three years. The doc follows Janet as her family is going through the loss of her father, Joseph, the patriarch of the Jackson dynasty who passed in 2018. Producers were granted exclusive access to archival footage and never-before-seen home videos while developing the documentary for the past three years. “JANET” will also detail the most talked-about moments of her life, including her 2004 Super Bowl appearance with Justin Timberlake in which she inadvertently exposed a portion of her breast, sparking controversy that would hover for more than a decade. The docu will also explore Jackson’s reaction to the death of her brother, the legendary and also controversial Michael Jackson, and her process of becoming a mother. “JANET” is targeted for debut in early 2022 on Lifetime and A&E. The docu is executive produced by Janet Jackson and Randy Jackson. Executive producer for Workerbee is Rick Murray and Brie Miranda Bryant serves as executive producer for A+E Networks. Ben Hirsch is directing. variety.com/2021/tv/news/janet-jackson-documentary-lifetime-ae-1234920992/

  22. I don’t think anybody’s saying that it isn’t a problem and she should be doing more. And I know that Mariah knows how to promote herself as she learned/was married to the best. And, based on Mariah’s book, she’s hella insecure which doesn’t surprise me that she’s using smart tactics to keep her name out there. Doesn’t mean Janet can’t do more and it doesn’t mean others weren’t in here throwing shade for comparison. The two are not mutually exclusive. I’m not naive to her standing and know that Gen Z and soon to be Generation Alpha don’t know her like they should. And I don’t think she has a misguided perception. I think she knows and doesn’t care. I’m going to give her more credit on her knowledge even if she just discovered Hot Cheetos a few years ago. It’s on her to care because as far as I’m concerned I know I’ve done my part in trying to keep her legacy alive with starting petitions back in 2006 because I was worried about her blacklisting and erasure THEN, playing her music to the people that know me, and putting money every month to keep this not very active forum running and spending thousands when she’s on tour. She has to care more than all of us. Hell, I’d like it if she did care as it would drive more activity to this forum and justify the price I pay. I’m just not as bothered about it as I used to be.

  23. What I would like for Janet is for her and her team to post all her videos on YouTube on her VEVO account. I saw some traction on the Got Til It’s Gone video on Twitter a couple of days ago. I went to YouTube to go play it because it really is one of my favorite videos ever, and I could only find a fan account... that was posted nine months ago. I’m not even saying she needs to certify her stuff and she doesn’t need to be Mariah because for all of her greatness, she’s extremely insecure, lacks accountability, and can be very money hungry (she’s also selling Mariah cookies). But she should care about what she gave her life to and she should care about it more than her fans. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Black Diamond doesn’t happen until 2022.

  25. Your're not being self indulgent at all and here is as good as any considering how your bond was formed. Hope you can find some comfort here. I vaguely remember the name but not the character. The more things like this happen, the more im inclined to partake in a video call meet up as @Selzsuggested in another thread...for anyone who wants to partake. Take care for now

  27. Janet needs to pull a Mariah and do her own rarities type of release. I still think What Can I Say, Clap Your Hands, Could This Be Love and Put it On you are some of the best songs she recorded at that time and the fact they didn’t even make the album cut!!! Yeah, Janet was creatively vacant during that time in her career! Wow!

  30. The Rhythm Nation album was a strange beast here in Australia. The chart peaks for the singles were all over the place: Miss You Much - 12 Rhythm Nation - 56 Escapade - 25 Come Back To Me - 79 Black Cat - 6 Love Will Never Do - 14 State of the World - 94 Alright didn’t chart here until it was released as a single in the Design of a Decade era, and even then only peaked at 100. For ages I thought it was perhaps not released as a single here back in 1990 - I certainly don’t remember it getting the attention that any of the other singles received - but then it charted in New Zealand so it would be weird for it to get a release there and not here (though stranger things have happened). Maybe it just didn’t click with the public here. Not surprised that Black Cat was the best performing single though, as rock dominated the charts here at the time. As for the album, it didn’t reach #1 until February 1991. It took 69 weeks from its chart debut to reach the top where it sat comfortably for four weeks.

  31. It was definitely her “Thriller” moment that solidified her legacy and cemented her as a pop culture phenomenon so....But I don’t know if it’s the biggest R&B album era for a solo female artist. Whitney’s first 2 albums seemed like much bigger eras but Rhythm Nation is unmatched in concept and quality!

  32. not necessarily since she didnt write most of that and its a soundtrack album, Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 album was the top selling and top chart performing album of 1990, the Bodyguard era was 93

  34. Last night, I dreamt Janet FINALLY released her first single with Bruno Mars and it was called....”Killing It!” Also the new album was also available on Apple Music for pre-order and it was renamed “Artist” with insane visuals!!! The first video with Bruno was like a complete acid trip with Janet spotting green hair and some amazing fashion!!! ......yeah, I’m going crazy now!!!

  35. And it was organic as well. From an unintentional feminist, to a socially aware superstar, to a sex symbol icon, to a moody, instrospective ARTIST, to a carefree POP LEGEND.
