  1. it sounds more like a B-side thats not polished well, it certainly is NOT single worthy, the quality is just not high enough
  2. I was speaking musically the song Pillow Talk has some Island Life vibes in sound. As for the vocals, I felt "Pillow Talk" could use a vocal arrangement akin to that on "Island Life"
  3. the vocals are not doing it for me either, the music sounds good though. It reminds me a bit of "Island Life", a song that echoes the kind of vocals that Janet shine on with a mid-tempo song like "Pillow Talk" which I've never heard of until now come through Questlove
  4. it's too much, everyone with an opinion feels like its cool to say whatever the hell they feel like saying, regardless of how it affects others. I can only do social media so long now adding that to the news. People say and do ignorant things
  5. I LOVE me some Madonna, and I've played plenty of her lately on my nostalgia 80's binge BUT watching Madge "dance" is cring worthy to me, and for the exact same reason you mentioned, Janet makes dancing look flawless, well executed in timing and attitude, and effortless get dat ish Janet so watching other pop dance chicks is not the biz Well Gaga has a top 10 hit on her hands, although it fell 4 spots from its previous position on the BB Hot 100
  6. as a man of color, many Black and Brown folks know who our allies are and perhaps more importantly who they are not. I get this impression that you feel the burden of carrying this "struggle" on your own shoulders, in that I believe that is not a "struggle" for you to carry. Why should you bare the cross of humanities sins? You are not responsible for the actions of those who happen to look like you. It's greatly appreciated that you voice concern, and in some ways are part of a new "normal" wherein white folks are speaking up in this moment. We all, no matter who we are, have to take c
  7. now that's an endorsement ...chile I gotta warm up to do new Gaga, let's start with "Just Dance" a banger itself.
  8. What an exciting time to be alive? It's the wildest year I've ever seen in my entire life. It's a lot to wrap your head around, I will say I truly was floored by the mass amount of protests taking place across dozens of cities. Tonight protests in Detroit are planned. I took a break for a moment, a break around late April as course work had come to most of it's completion. After that I made a plan, I need to take stock, of where the hell am I and what am I doing? Is this course of action appropriate or not? I agree with Rocco I began to take in news again, on an decidedly active basis. I
  9. sadly, and maybe crazy of me, but I'm still in quarantine and stay at home orders which means I haven't heard her I'll hear Gaga some other time what does make me want to listen are the reports its her best album in a very long time, but Gaga fans tend to do that
  10. ughh, this whole thing, race, starts with being a human being first. Okay, as you are, so dont apologize for being born who you are you have zero control over that. I have disengaged with social media, because I dont want to go back and forth, but intellectually speaking, I could, the problem for all of us is it doesn't matter what you say, people believe what they do and you will not be changing that on a Twitter or whatever. Stay strong in what you know to be right, stay open to hearing others, but vigilant in your own constitution. Today we don't respect one another, we certainly dont

    Let me be frank , over the years this whole bit has gotten well "dated" now that is not to say that the founder of this forum aint on her shit, cause this place trumps pretty much every other forum, I started out on Miss Janet, back in 1995ish, I remember it was through AOL, who remembers thats? long time ago, it was different then, Janet would sneak in on us and we had no clue, Rene would make his presence known. So much has changed. So much hasn't, It's been one hell of a ride over the years, from Henry, Pie, LoveProfusion, TheHiltonSuite, ThatOtherFan, Mr. Together, Jodie, Matt, sooooo ma

    is there some way to honor him? On one of the Janet groups? It's shocking
  14. "Ozark" I do believe is low key, or maybe not so low-key, racist and specifically panders to people that voted for that orange dude I heard plenty of things about this show being good, but I did not take into account who is saying it's good. The show is racist

    I'm shocked!!! He's a FB friend but I never saw him post much, his last post was on his birthday March 4, 2019
  16. "Everybody for this next song, I want you all to turn on your high beams......remember that special night"
  17. I am grateful for the stuff we have gotten, Janet is active on social media on a semi-regular basis. Her team finally got high quality versions of her music videos out, there was also the release of professional quality footage of the Up Close and Personals tour ....come thru sis
  18. 1. You're not selfish for wanting to enjoy music from your fav. 2. Janet isn't any of those other artists who I dont think has had a huge reception necessarily anyway. 3. If you view the Black Diamond era as a project, its not any different from a ton of projects both musical and motion picture that have been pushed back. 4. Janet's role, or principal in the business is to entertain, she can address the fans, or she could say stay safe and thank the healthcare workers as she has done. In this case it's best to not speak, let the situation handle the PR itself, Janet's been on
  19. started "Killing Eve" from the BBC, it's a cat and mouse game of a government agent chasing a female assassin.
  20. it's all about bragging numbers, its like the fan bases of these women are insecure you don't see fans of Tupac music trying to get him to number one while the Biggie fans steam about the shit Janet's legacy is cemented, she doesn't have to prove anything to anyone she hasn't already and a number 1 on iTunes, while cute, is so unimportant. I'd rather hear they cast at least one actress to portray Janet during her childhood for her as yet untitled biopic
  21. because I already bought RN the cassette at least 3 times, the CD twice, and the vinyl record, let's not get into singles. I'm a loooongggg time fan, so my seniority goes back can you even play cassettes? I mean how challenging would it be to play my RN cassette? that would be a better birthday present, "Did ya'll see on Twitter all those Janet fans playing RN on cassette tapes?" chile they love her "what do they mean side a?"
  22. they sold around 1000 copies to get that number 1, as Janet fans we need to do better and look less pressed BUT I'm not a hater so if you want a number 1 on Itunes, go get it
