  1. Thanks for coming back to this and sharing. When I read some of the comments on the memorial page, I had a suspicion it was that, but to read it and see it confirmed, hurt my heart. I hope whatever his beliefs are, that he found peace that eluded him in this life. I have known of Paul since 2001 (was one of the first members that stuck out to me when I joined jj.com), as he was so freaking memorable and charismatic... and I had never even met him, nor spoken to him. I just want to say that I'm glad that even at your lowest moments in life, you're still here and with us. As others have mentioned, we are not as active as we used to be, but this is a community I've been a part of for 19 years and it holds a very special place in my heart. I came into this family as I was coming of age, and the memories, and lessons learned here, played such a critical role in helping to shape my worldview. Please never doubt your impact, y'all.

  3. 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 am so sorry to hear he got to that place. I hope he is at peace now. I have problems with depression in general and this f*cking year aint making shit easier and I'm sure we can all relate. We're not in this alone guys. I love you all.

  5. This list will change again a in a few years. So I'm not bothered. I knew Control was gonna be added, but TVR and RN1814 should be in the top half. The top 200 is outright laughable. Imagine thinking some of those artists have better albums than Stevie's classical period.

  6. I’m fine with the dragging. And the weird thing is that this statement was said months ago but it’s now viral. But whatever. Toucan Sam deserved it.

  8. 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!

  10. It's been rampant as of late. I don't agree with coming for her because you lack the ignorance to see her contributions to music. Shit her own "fans" be doing the same thing. Also, Janet is silent and inactive. So that's that on that.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. To me, they are the same level of greatness, just from the perspective a woman in 1997 at age 31 vs the same woman in 2015 at age 48.

  20. And "Control" wasn't originally on the list and came in like a wrecking ball. We love to see such a monumental album get it's due.

  25. 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.

  26. She has the worst transition to the modern era out of her peers, and although her profile has improved some she and her team continue to drop the ball on simple stuff. Like her YouTube page. You’re a visual artist with one of the best videographies...and yet...all of your videos can’t be accessed. And She has non-dancers with more interesting routines currently

  28. 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!!!

  29. 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 music of that time, and it definitely showed strong potential. It would put it 7th, above Damita Jo, 20YO, Discipline, the debut. There was at least somewhat of a concept that the executives committed to.

  30. I absolutely love Unbreakable and put it above much of her later albums and it still gets a ton of replay from me. It's just not as strong as TVR, and there's nothing wrong with that, because TVR is one of the best albums I've ever heard. Unbreakable was a return to form; TVR was an elevation.

  31. Staying relevant. Think about it: Single Ladies came out in the late 2000s. Think of the artists that were out at the time. How many of them are still being talked about in the same breath and reverence as Beyonce? That's staying power regardless of how she performed on the charts. She's starting to age out of Pop Culture, so her sales won't be the same; however, she's managed to still be talked about.

  32. Ya’ll need to understand that Beyonce is a profitable GOLD MINE!!! The light skinned black woman with THE crossover look and massive appeal!!! Let’s be real!!! Beyoncé’s record sales in the digital era have been decent at best. But she is not the inventive record seller of her Idols before (Janet!) Beyoncé’s popularity is LEGENDARY, but her work isn’t ground breaking or innovative. Highly creative and visually breathtaking at times but only her last 2 studio albums have been considered staples in music history. She was purely a singles artist like her peers. Let’s face it, Beyonce has a worldwide draw to her that makes her internationally marketable. That’s why she sells out stadiums. But come on....Beyonce is an Icon, NOT a legend. I’m sorry.

  33. I doubt that! Ageism on the radio wasn’t as bad compared to it now. Not to mention, she was ONLY 37!!! They were even saying the Damita Jo was estimated to outsell All For You and Just A Little While would have kept climbing easily because of her reputation alone, not to mention her success was unstoppable until the SB incident. We need to realize that the era would have been highly competitive, but Janet would has still been massively successful for her career at the time.

  34. Unbreakable was a return to form but let's not get carried de fuq away. As a project...TVR is next level. Imma keep saying this but sis sampled The Exorcist. A black pop artist sampling such a dark twisted demonic movie back in 97 was unhead of. But yall don't hear me.

  35. Thanks for letting us know. I'm sorry to hear that. I'm happy that he is no longer in pain and is at peace. It sucks that I never knew him personally, but we connected thru Janet(like most of us on here).

  36. 'A little update... So it turns out a "frenemy" of mine I went to school with was Pauls half brother. I knew Pauls surname was Drummond and then eventually gathered they were related...I thought cousins. However, I met with a mutual friend (of mine and frenemy) this eve. I'm sad to tell you all that the cause of his death was suicide. It really hit home with me. I've been close to the edge of doing something similar in the past, but never have. I know its been echoed in the thread, but many of us have been connecting here over years, some have met, some not. But there is a common bond...the love of our Queen. I'm a bit in my feelings at the moment, but id like to think I could try and help somebody. Maybe some cant be helped...and I don't know what the circumstances were with him. But he seemed to have such a zest for life...you would never think, but you just never know. I guess what I'm rabbling on about is I hope nobody feels so low, so alone that they would need to do that. I know its only this forum, but if anyone can help, even just "talking" on here, let us know.

  38. Janet was always someone who more or less doesn't want to be bothered when she's isn't doing project. Problem is that it doesn't translate in this day and age. I just don't think it's fair that it means she has little regard to her fans, she might value her privacy more. There's also some obtuseness over what's exactly is going on.

  39. 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.
