  2. Everything included, I think j. was bigger on a global scale. But stateside, an argument could be made.

  3. 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 Americ

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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!

  11. 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 -

  12. 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!

  13. 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

  15. Had Janet took the best songs from the first two albums, she would've had a very solid lead up to Control. Say You Do Young Love Don't Mess Up This Good Thing Don't Stand Another Chance Pretty Boy Hold Back the Tears All My Love to You You'll Never Find (A Love Like Mine) Forever Yours

  16. 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!!!

  17. I dont wanna come off as rude, but is this what our society does now? We base our views/opinions on emoji and what someone "liked" on SM? I personally dont think that gives us enough information to say which political figure she may support, if any. She may have just liked the jist of what her brother was saying??? I think society needs to learn to be a bit more objective. For example, I might (not saying I do) agree with one or two Trump (or any other politicians) policies/action. Doesn't mean I like or support that person and their party. But I can recognise and say "actually, I d

  18. I took a first time listen to Dream Street and let me tell you: This is arguably Janet's most underrated album. I was bopping to so many songs on the album. It seems that the executives decided to try to up the tempo from the first album and I felt to paid off. It has less ballads and they aren't as strong (Two to the Power of Love is quite bad). But the dance number are definite bangers. Highlights for me are Can't Stand Another Chance, Pretty Boy and All my Love to You. Dream Street is definitely not worthy of being a punchline. It's better than a lot of the urban contemporary musi

  20. people I know in healthcare are saying they wouldn't even take it, because it's not been properly tested, vaccines take years to go through proper vetting, now they are saying you may have to have two shots, which is not unheard of. Basically those that would take the vaccine would be guinea pigs If the virus mutates, a vaccine may not be effective, and that's also not unheard of. I will say let's hope they do have an effective vaccine and it does come fast.

  27. Early next year would be much earlier than I expect(ed), but it seems kind of realistic. Cincinatti Festival she was supposed to perform at has been rescheduled to July '21, so if the vaccines are moving along well, a world tour starting next Summer MIGHT be possible. Album release in Spring or early Summer would be great in that case!

  28. I think you hit the nail on the head. I know UK have always appreciated smooth polished RNB pop sounds here...the hard industrial New Jack mood not so much

  30. Everybody saying the Whitney album is POP .... Isn't RN considered a "pop" album too? Why are we putting it under the R&B umbrella ONLY?

  32. Eh.... if he had people of color vote so much then he wouldn't of lost. It took 5 days because more people who usually don't vote, finally decided to get off their ass this year to get rid of him. Also due to the pandemic, more people than usual did mail in voting, which takes longer to count.

  38. Mmmm I wouldn’t say she can’t hit the high notes anymore. Unbreakable had some of Janet’s best vocals for sure. Not to mention Made For Now! The thing is Janet has always been too timid to sing out full on songs because of her insecurity about her vocal range. Janet’s voice has always lacked raw power but made up for it in versatility. She can sing Rock, R&B, Jazz, Country, Folk, POP, etc. unlike her contemporaries. It’s always been about how she uses her voice and her harmonies?!?!! Even Brandy stans those harmonies!!!

  39. I think her voice has become more full n less light is what they might mean. Like there’s maturity and growth in it.

  42. As someone who JUST got out of the hospital from battling Covid and her respiratory demons for almost a month.....fuck a tour! I'm here to tell you, take this shit seriously. Its already getting worse. And don't take breathing for granted ever again. I can barely walk to the kitchen without getting winded....I was 6'1, 175-180.....now I'm 6'1 140...shit ain't cute yall. Worse part is that I have an appetite BUT my taste buds are fucked because of the medicine I'm on. #miserable A bitch really want a lemon pepper wing. But seriously.... Stay safe!

  44. I agree with you. I would love if she did full songs instead of just medleys. I feel like most of the fans that will go to this tour, have seen her before. So it shouldn't be a problem to have a different setlist.
