Janet Jackson Officially A R&R Hall of Famer, December 13th, 2018


Recommended Posts

If this is true... Than how ironic is it that the year Les Moonves was exposed is the same year Janet is finally inducted. If there's one thing I believe in it's Karma. He was out here trying to kill this woman's career for over a damn decade. And now look at him. Karma... Yeah that sh*t is real. I'm happy for Janet. We all know she should have been in the first time. And those rock fans can piss off. Black people created rock music  yet they don't want us represented. Give Janet her flowers while she's here damnit!!!

Janelle Monae is an incredible artist and had an amazing last year, you can tell she was directly influenced by Janet and she is articulate enough to read a teleprompter and give an amazing ass speech

some last minute commentary from Vulture

Janet Jackson

Some will say she’s only a pop artist, which in a way she is, but she is also a great R&B star. Besides that, she has a story — marshaling the talent to break out of the rut of her early albums (and, more importantly, away from her benighted family) and finding the collaborators she needed in Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Besides the statement of independence that was Control, she scaled things up for Rhythm Nation 1814, which rocks substantively and confidently to this day. She ultimately made a few years of the era her own, against some significant competition, including Prince, Springsteen, Madonna, and — who am I forgetting? — her brother.

As a die hard Janet Jackson fan, no matter the outcome, she will get in some day, I hope that day is today. I have loved and supported this woman for decades now, funny how time flies, or flashes by like lightening in the night sky. I will always be down for Janet Jackson like 4 flat tires, she remains the soundtrack to my life. We truly love you Janet :wub:  14 concerts over 7 tours attended here.....

The Cure, Janet Jackson, Radiohead Among Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees For 2019

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced its newest class of inductees Thursday, one year to the day after the 2018 class was announced. From 15 nominees, seven remain. Here they are, in alphabetical order:

  • The Cure
  • Def Leppard
  • Janet Jackson
  • Stevie Nicks
  • Radiohead
  • Roxy Music
  • The Zombies

It was Def Leppard, Roxy Music and Stevie Nicks' first nomination as potential inductees (though, as a member of Fleetwood Mac, Nicks is already in), The Cure and Radiohead's second, Janet Jackson's third and The Zombies' fourth. The announcement leaves fellow nominees Devo, John Prine, Kraftwerk, LL Cool J, MC5, Rage Against The Machine, Rufus & Chaka Khan and Todd Rundgren to wait for the years to come. (Still no Harry Nilsson.)

Since 1986, the Hall has added 323 inductees to its rolls; they include 220 performers, 33 "early influencers" (a category largely composed of rock and roll's African-American founding mothers and fathers, such as Lead Belly, Robert Johnson and Sister Rosetta Tharpe) and 34 non-performers (generally music-industry executives, but also songwriters, producers and instrument makers).

As with the nominees list, each year's inductees are determined by a voting group of "over 1,000" previous winners, historians and members of the music industry. Since 2012, the Hall has also included a fan vote, which has no practical mathematical effect on the outcome; the winning top five artists of the fan vote are compiled into a single ballot. That ballot is then factored into the total tally of 1,000-plus votes from the Hall's voting membership. Those members weigh factors "such as an artist's musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration," the Hall explains of the process.

Even with that information, its nominations process remains opaque. As Jon Landau, manager of Bruce Springsteen and chair of the Hall's nominating committee — which numbers about three or four dozen — told the Times seven years ago: "We've done a good job of keeping the proceedings nontransparent."

However, things do seem to be shifting. On the subject of whether bands like The Cure would ever make it, one anonymous insider told Billboard in 2015: "You and I will die before those groups are in the Hall of Fame."

The Induction Ceremony is planned for March 29, 2019 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, with an edited special to air on HBO in the spring.
