I think it would be SO dope if her and Mariah went on tour together! That would definitely be a treat to us 90's baby's and REAL music lovers :D

^^^^ Agree with the above poster. They need to round up all the acts from the 90's and put them on tour. Now that is real music and talent compared to the harmonica, screeching noises that lil wayne and crew, Nikki, Ri Ri, Beyonce has taking over dominating radio airwaves.

Just tired of hearing them

No, Destiny's Child is from the late '90s. Didn't nobody know who "Beyonce" was til she started suckin' that camel dick. Destiny's Child was still walking a line to one-hit wonderland until further notice!

LMAO@12:53....game, set, MATCH!!

12:53 how you gonna say Destiny's Child is from the late 90's but nobody knew beyonce? Um hello Beyonce was Destiny's Child. As a child her name was actually the only one I knew from the group. Them other chicks were just background singers. Nobody was buying DC albums to hear them ooh and aww in the background. Pimp daddy Matt used the hell out them girls and they were easily replaceable, that's why no one batted an eye lash when they were replaced.

I guess Janet figures she may as well ride that Poetic Justice train with Kendrick Lamar huh? Good luck Ms. Jackson. She has diehard fans, so she she'll be ok.

Bee Gee said...

Only thing I got outta this post is Janet living dangerous in a "Surf Naked" shirt. Didn't realize she reached 10 albums either..

Magick said...

Bee Gee, that actually tells you how many were actually worth getting because I didn't know that either

^Yeh man Velvet Rope was the last one I remember..

@1:02 well, since you really wanna be technical about it...DC's first album dropped in 98/99 with No, No, No, and you mean to tell me you really knew who Beyonce Knowles was at the time? LOL remember there were still a LOT of girl groups around at that time and DC wasn't even at the top. There was still SWV, Total, Allure, En Vogue was still kinda together, Xscape, 702, all of them. In the late 90s you really couldn't pick none of them hoes out a lineup.

DC didn't really get noticed until that whole Say My Name thing went down in 2000 and even then AT THE TIME you didn't know if the group would hit or flop cause back then it was definitely looking like flop when they started rotating folks like the third shift at White Castle. They got hella lucky and I know they better be thanking God four times a day that Survivor was a hit. And that's when they really started to put Bey out front in the interviews and such during that whole Survivor/Bootylicious/Independent Women era (same time Justin was getting put out there from NSYNC).

Let's not forget that Kelly also had a little shine with Dilemma and for a minute, it was looking like she was going to be the star (cause remember B dropped that Work It Out bullshit and it dropped like a warm turd). Bey really really REALLY didn't come into her own until Crazy In Love and that's the truth.

Janet been flopping harder than a fish out of water this millennium. She ain't been on Billboard since the 90s. Now this is someone that needs to hang it up.

What is she going to sing about at 50? Unlike Madonna she doesn't have her finger on the pulse of what's new and happening. She might as well call this album Flop.

The Beyonce's and Rihanna's of the world have slayed her. Hell, even C-error is outselling her ass

Magick said...

@1:46, and I hate to agree with you but you are absolutely right. I believe her downward spiral started happening when JD started producing albums for her...shit, it was probably before that

Anonymous said...

Her last 3 albums never made it to gold, that means she didn't have enough fans to sell 500,000 albums.

Hang it up!- Flatscreeeeeeeeeeeeeeen

@ Magick/ 1:48 I think it went downhill for her when she left Renee Elizondo. He was the mastermind behind her image, her style, and her tours. She hasn't had a hit or a big tour since they divorced in the late 90s.

People don't give him credit for establishing her as a superstar.

Anonymous said...

Janet haven't you learned yet? Go back to Jimmy and Terry!!!!! Shit, find Renee! Even Neyo can give you a MJ effect. Do something because your albums have been so dry and just bad. Albums between Control and All For You were good and will be what you will be remembered for.

Magick said...

@1:51, understood. You are right, that is probably the start of the downfall. I honestly cannot remember her last hit and I have an extremely good memory.

Hasn't learned yet...she can't produce...she needs HELP!

Janet girl bye I love you I really do but no one is checking for another album of you whispering about the same old stuff you been whispering about. Just go on ahead and save that soft spoken struggle album your working on because it's only going to meet the fate of your other recent flop albums. Just kick back with your billionaire hubby and call it a day.

@1:46 ummmm no bitch, Janet's last number one song was in 2009 "make me" topped the Dance charts. So do some more research next time hussy!

I thought she was working on getting a baby.

2:24 dance charts? What about billboard hot 100 you know the chart that actually matters? And when was the last time her album was #1 or went platinum?

Anonymous said...

Janet, girl you mine as well go back to digging wells in Africa because at least then you'll actually doing a favor for someone because you aren't helping a damn soul by releasing this flop album.

Anonymous said...

Janet will alright. It's all about finding your stride. Janet is versatile with her music and with her brand. I think ber first single should be a song like "That's the way goes" or something with more of a r&b feel to it. Go back to doing a couple of acting gigs here and there. Janet will be alright, she knows this business and been in far too long. I do think she should've went the independent route time ago like after the All for you album. I think Janet was still putting herself in the mix of trying to keep up with the young generation at the time.

It's really a shame we don't uphold our black musical legends. The Rolling Stones been on tour since Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and they can sell out a concert, but let Janet step into a studio and y'all want her to sit down. SMH.

We have a bunch of "Unsung" artists forever on the chitlin circuit because as soon as they get one flop y'all want to cast them aside.

Dead @ 2:21 !!
Preach

We do not need another album with her giggling that annoying laugh through every song and whispering what she wants to do to someone sexually. This album might go Brass. She'll be lucky if she recoups the cost of the plastic the CD is made from.

@2:43PM.... All we're saying is "what have you done for me lately?"

Anonymous said...

@2:24 I'm 1:46, and dance charts are not going to sell records and sustain world tours. The Billboard 100 and specifically for an artist like Janet the Billboard top 10 is where she needs to be aiming for.

Lol @ you shouting at the dance charts. You need to do you research on the last time she had a #1 on the regular Billboard charts. Janet is like an old car model 8 track when we have new models with multidisc CD changers today.

Britney Spears retired Janet in 2000 when she slayed the musicindustry . Janet further slayed herself by lying to her fans about marriages and babies and then ludely exposing herself on a family show.

ThatBKChick said...

The fact of the matter is that the female music game is "wide open" mainly because Beyonce's album is in turmoil, Britney Spears is right behind her and so is Nikki Minaj...so if Mariah and Janet is all that we have left, to show these youngin's how it's done...then so be it! Honestly, I cannot remember any worth while song for Beyonce, except for "Me, Myself and I", Britney Spears....Nada and Nikki Minaj is st8 shit! So I say do the damned thing aging diva's! This generation is wack as hell!

@4:36 for an artist like Janet to have her best single peak at #19 is embarrassing. That's like Rihanna debuting at #19. Girl bye

@ 4:51 PM well considering the fact that janet has 5 consecutive number 1 albums ( all written and cowritten by her), 10 number singles on the BB hot 100 (all of them were written and cowritten by her once again and none of them were collaborations) to this day The Rhythm Nation Tour is still the most successful debut tour by any artist, she is the first woman to debut on the album charts at num 1 with "janet". and had the highest record deal of all time. i dont she gives a flying fuck about your opinion or some funky ass top ten.

@ 5:00 you a DAMN LIE! Janet was not a debut artist when Rhythm nation came out. She had two COMPLETE FLOP ALBUMS BEFORE THEN- WHERE SHE DEBUTED- AND FLOPPED!

Janet Jackson released 1982: sold 82,000 in the US

and

Dream Street released in 1984 selling 44,000 in the US

She then released Control in 1986. Rhythm Nation did not come out until 1989 so I don't know who you think you fooling with those innacuracies.

Also we all know Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis wrote all of her songs for her and produced them so you might want to check that she co wrote or wrote all her songs. The only female who can claim songwriting credits for all her songs is Mariah Carey.

Take many seats child

boy u bitches kill me. just because the media doesn't call an album a hit, you think it's not a hit. if she sold 500k only, who knew what was needed to break even and then profit? Clearly she can still make music that will sell.

janet jackson
dreamstreet
control
rhythm nation
janet
velvet rope
all for you
damita jo
20 y.o.
discipline

I can name them all, no google needed. Janet, Madonna, Prince, etc aren't putting out music with hopes of selling millions of copies. New music begets interest and ur name back out there and a tour. It's a simple formula. Now if it does pop of and sell millions, that's icing on the cake.

She's janet jackson. Why would she hang it up? She can get paid good money to do a commercial, a movie, a song with confidence. I guess so many of y'all go into ur annual reviews hoping to get 3% increases, it's no wonder you think everybody else should just give up.

@ 5:00 i said debut tour! meaaning first tour. Instead of trying to shade janet. why dont you step YO READING GAME UP HOE! Reading is fundamental. BICTH why dont you try it. Wikipedia is your best friend right now. Go do research, before you come for da queen

Anonymous said...

@6:02 if Britney Spears released 4 records and then goes on tour for the fourth album the tour is not a debut tour. A debut tour would mean her first tour with her first album as a new artist. Janet had been making music for 8 years before that tour started so for you to say she had the biggest debut tour is misleading.

#Another wig snatched back

Dead @ Janitor stains making up accolades for a has been.

Question: Why was Janet never invited to Diva's Live? Every other successful singer has performed there.

The reason is because the bitch is all studio vocals. Then she lip syncs when she performs live.

Y'all Stan's are a hoot

Am I wrong for not feeling overjoyed? I mean, I feel a sense of loyalty to Ms. Jackson, but.........me no wanna hear her sang no mo. No mo (in my best Trinidad James voice).

@ 6:39 Wikipedia "With an attendance of over two million patrons and ticket sales grossing over $28 million in the United States alone, the Rhythm Nation World Tour remains the most successful debut concert tour by any recording artist."

Anonymous said...

@7:45 they also tore Ms.Jackson to shreds in that article if your dumb azz kept reading:

"[l]ike many other video-promoted singers, Ms. Jackson doesn't have a big voice

Jackson and company created a sensory overload of lights, dancers, video, fireworks, explosions, costumes and sets

this was a concert for the age of MTV, more satisfying to the eye than the ear."[9] Although he believed she gave a well performed production, he felt she lacked the stage presence of rivals such as Madonna and Tina Turner.

So the article basically said that the tour was all dancers and pyrotecnics and that she can't sing a lick.

I rest my case!!! LMAO @ YOU QUOTING WIKIPEDIA AND FAILING!!

THIS COURT IS ADJOURNED

JANITOR JACKSON AND HER FLOPSSSSSS

@ 9:42 umm let me ask you a question? Who hurt you boo? Is you alright? Just give up the first woman to debut at number one on the bbhot 200 and the one to hold the most successful debut tour to this date, has done absolutely nothing to you. Please seek help.

Anonymous said...

Imagine a bitch who can't sing, has no stage presence, and still manages to bank $28M. Yep, she's losing.

Well, she proved her worth. How we know she has? Because once she became a force in the music industry, she was no longer referred to as Michael's little sister. Like it or not, she has made a name for herself and is an ICON.

Y'all knocking Janet when hell, she made pop music what it was when others went on to make hundreds of millions of the stuff. Again, yep, she's losing.

Anonymous said...

@9:51 imagine a singer who lies to her fans for 9 years in interviews saying she's single when she's really married.

Imagine a woman so fame hungry that she exposes herself on live TV when children are watching

Imagine a woman who can't get a hit record this half of her career to save her life.

Yea she proved her worth in today's market- Zip Zero. Last time Janet was hot was when Michael Jordan was still playing with the Bulls.

Anonymous said...

@9:51 lol don't worry about his or her crazy ass. The bitch needs help. I bet if Janet died today his/her anonymous ass would be on here talking shit about how he loved Janet soooo much. Just like they did Michael, when he was alive they hated him. Now that he is dead they love his ass. Smdh

Who is Tommy Parker? Is she trying to fail before even starting? She better watch how she shakes it over in the middle east. They don't play that nonsense over there.

Anonymous said...

@10:14 She didn't expose herself. Justin Timberlake ripped off her top not her. Besides what do you think Beyonce did in the Superbowl? Gyrate and spread her legs like she always does. Oh and she also lied about being married for years. And she lied about having a baby. I think you're just confusing Bey and Janet.

9:42 who pissed in your cornflakes? Janet has plenty of hits lots of great albums and tours and $$$$. Why you mad boo? Facts are facts and she has the stats to disprove you. Have several stadiums full of seats because that other poster has snatched your wig.

On another note these pop up ads and auto play video ads are outta control. This has to stop.

To those who don't know her last album, Discipline went #1 at the Billboard 200. As of 2011, she's had 36 global #1 hits and a #1 NY Times bestseller, True You. Her last tour in 2011 made $60 million which is better compared to the Rock Witchu Tour. She has nothing else to prove.
