    I feel like... without sounding rude when has Janet stuck to one genre on her albums? I feel like she’s one of the few that’s been able to provide a variety of genres in an album without losing cohesiveness and her identity 

    I agree completely, it feels just as off when I hear people call her a pop artist as it does it she's reffered to as a R&B artist, her music carries across the genre's, and not even in a "album track" way she has a deal of success in multiple genres.

    To the topic I agree that classic rock isnt even rock anymore, that said I'd adore it if she ended up Tina Turner-ing her image & sound & that whole genre. Do I think she will, no. But do I have/hold any expectations, no, Unbreakable taught that.

  2. I roll my eyes through and semi-mock songs that she whispers through that I think she could've done a much better vocal delivery on (most of 20 Y.O. and all of Discipline)

    I fuck up the lyrics way more than I should on some songs....yet on others Im just like Janet when she was teaching the dancers the if lyrics "no not ALL, it's OH, OHH the things" :lmao:


  3. I love she cleared things up, not expecting a new album anytime soon (at but that's what's best about no expectations, and if she playin & drops something that's great, but eh again, her lips, Unbreakable), but she recorded a new song with Jam & Lewis, tight!

     I like what she said about Prince, seems accurate, Toya spoke about Prince trying really hard to get with her, but that was when she was prone to lying but Janet confirmed!

    But I love her experiences in the city and her getting candid about her time there.

    My apologies is this edit understandable yall

    Tottally :thumbup:

    To the question at hand, it all looks incredibly different in person, but at the same time too as someone who's taken video of both, it really doesn't translate as well on phone video. no matter how close or how far. This is why I think releasing professional footage is better, professional cameras can capture it all better and we haven't had that in forever.

    I think the choreography in general was much more intense & intricate for Metamorphosis, however I think HER dancing was a bit harder and edgier for SOTW, like Angie put, you could legitimate feel for Meta that "she's here!...and she's HAPPY!" in a way that wasn't in SOTW, that did have more aggression from her.

    I’ve been to both. I think her choreography was great both times. There was a certain fierceness in her during SOTW where I felt like she was channeling her anger from her marriage into her performance. 

    There’s a different sense of “I’m here” in her residency. 

    I will say that I’ve probably sat in similar positions both times (center stage, fifth and fourth rows) and I can’t take my eyes of her when she performs. She’s mesmerizing. The difference to me is the higher production value in her residency compared to SOTW. 

    And I think the choreography was equal. For instance I definitely LOVED her choreography for IGL during her residency. I also preferred the choreography for TTWLG at SOTW compared to her residency. Either way, Janet did that shit. 

    Again, beautifully put

  5. just so you know.......my absence is me trying to recover....I haven't even gone yet (July 27th) but just.....I'm blown away by what I've seen...and I haven't seen everything, that's just my rule, I will take peaks at things, but I wont watch a full show (or play all audio) that I plan to see, when it comes to this woman and her pulling out album tracks that I didn't think I'd ever see her perform (at all or again).

    Wait...you didnt become a fan until 2001? The way you go up for the janet. era I thought you had lived through the era like us older members..  Tf im baffled...this whole time i didnt know you were a late janet bloomer 

    I was born in 90, I only remember bits and pieces of her before 1998 and before my fan baptism in 01 (the Icon tribute did it), but it was within that time I did the reachbacks and studying. Shit I wish I was there for it all to be new, but instead I gage it all from studying. I owe janetmedia and the Janet.videos bus & the All For You censored version with the DVD. for the Janet.-AFY videos & the Design Of A Decade vhs for the pre-youtube studying.

    I gag at all the stuff I stressed,scrimped, & saved for that simply YouTube & Spotify made obsolete lol. Eh but I'd do it all again, it was all worth it........Dream Street cost $30 for years...crazy.

  7. janet. The album is eclectic and perfection to me, it's my favorite crop of dancers she's ever had and the only era where I know everyone's name off the top of my head, Tina as a choreographer, the janet. tour, her best movie came out in this era, she had tons of interviews & specials & award show appearances in this era. She owned the world in a way she hasn't before or since that era. And to top it all off her personality that era was the most live, wild and fun than it's ever been publically. Everything about that era flowed with each other & complimented each other in the best ways. Her personality was like it was based on the movie and the dancers and it all inspired the music and the dancing, and the tour.

    I became a fan during the AFY era, but the janet. era is the prime reason she's my #1.

    Yes the cruise has been a big deal for yearrssss.

    I wonder if Janet was just like chilling on the boat the whole time or did she like helicopter in? AHHHHH FOMO!

    Yea now that I look this 1 in particular has been sold out for 2yrs (according to some). And yea the people that take this cruise be loyal as hell and get they tix in advance, they don't play with Tom Joyner.

    I think she just popped in for 1 of the stops, like I don't know where it left from but following the dancers, they flew to Miami to do that performance, then they all left, I was thinking too if they were going to straight up stay on the boat and do like show a day for the duration of the cruise, but that's what the other acts are doing.

    It’s true homie 🤷🏾‍♂️

    Those award shows matter?

    Nah, it's your perception, in reality it's literally too many legs and too many major names attached for that to be a possibility the way you're suggesting/wanting it to be

    They get people talking, especially tributes. Not to mention Chris Darden being attached to his trial damn near guarantees headlines all along the trial.

  10. :lmao: You're still sticking to that? Yea it's common to have a rappers death and funeral damn near shut down a massive city. I get that you're wishing for that, but in reality, this has legs, it's a murder case that'll be televised, theres Billboard Awards, BET Awards, MTV Awards......if he gets no mention on any of them you'll be right if not, it'll just be clear of what you're hoping vs. what's reality.

    It was for black college students 😑 what is wrong with you fake Janet fans 

    I'm saying, by that same standard why perform for charity events or private shows? I audibly laugh at the mindset of fans dictating what she should or shouldnt do & how she should or shouldnt look doing it......aint this the same bitch that got a song called Control that says fuck you to that whole thing :lmao:


  12. Agreed, 20 YO has hints of Janet hidden in the mediocrity, Disappointment, I mean Discipline don't have much redeeming or defending factors at all. It's a album of good bops with Janet's demo vocals, Hell even DreamStreet gives good vocals and has 1 song with a writing credit from her....which is 1 more than Discipline. It's my favorite album of 08, but it's her worst for me and I want it to stay that way.

    yh it was pretty hard to find on youtube but I hope you enjoy. Love the intimate "Up Close and Personal" vibe with this

    Yea I looked all last night (I knew some might get taken down after a day) and today and this is the first I've seen, shit ima download immediately just incase it's gone in 10mins lol. I learned my lesson through the years on that.


    Just finished the whole thing, I love it, and she was getting love, and she seemed to be having fun and enjoying herself and the audience, so I'm good. Shit the audience didn't need to be breaking hips, they were singing along, they were raising there hands they were screaming and cheering for every song, it looked like the private events vids honestly.

  14. @jinthahouse Thank you so much for posting that, Im so glad I got to see the open, I LOVE she opened with a speech about what this meant....that's what it's all about,

    and like I said from jump, aside from this being a good cause, Tom Joyner has had her back and her families back her entire career, he's a radio legend, and she's always made clear that she loves & appreciate him and his show, and with him retiring, this is gratitude and appreciation....this is a Queen that can & will humble herself and I am here for it.

    I LOVED ALL THE "IN THE THUNDER AND RAIIIIIN" They old, but they know this bitch! And how she made I get Lonely about everybody singing with her, and that the dancers didn't even come out till No Sleep, before that, Just Janet.

    (also the random "GON GIRL"s from the audience)

    It’s for a good cause 

    And the audience was mostly fuckin old.....hearing from people who were there, energetic or not they were all giving her love and happy/excited to see her, hell she & the dancers might've been among the youngsters there compared to the majority, but the cause was worth it, hell she's doin private shows too and it's never as hype (judging from the videos) as the tours. So it's annoying people doin way too much on this.
