Janet Jackson current status?

I was surprised to see her not advancing to the second round of the GOAT cup in this forum (losing to Mary J. Blige)
I remeber a list from VH1 months ago about the greatest singers of all time and she wasn't in it while Beyonce and Justin Timberlake were ranked in the middle of the list
I know these lists sucks most of the time but why did she become so easy to be forgotten and having so many flops lately?
Her latest music wasn't bad in my opinion especially compared to other pop singers.
I always ranked her with Michael Jackson and Madonna in terms of influence and quality so it is really shocking to me to see her current status

How can people forget someone who made these classics

Re: Janet Jackson current status?

I don't know; her time was the '80s. She was sooooo huge during her Jimmy Jam period. She was never a "big voice" singer though, somewhat weak actually.

I didn't like her more sexual '90s stuff. My 2 favorites by her, though I like quite a few, are:

Re: Janet Jackson current status?

You know I always felt she was more of an influence musically and image wise on Britney et al than Madonna was despite what the media said.

But I also think her "legacy" suffered because of the relative (to MJ & Madonna) lack of impact outside of America. She had a very American princess image back in the 90s and that doesn't always translate globally unfortunately.

Also, regarding the polls - I think she only lost out by 1 or 2 votes and not everyone is participating so I wouldn't take those too seriously

EDIT: She lost by exactly one vote. 3 people could have changed that!

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

She was never able to recover after "nipplegate" unfortunately.

Really, don't even look at me...

Miss Jackson if you Nasty! One thing about her is that girl can dance and she still got the moves even till now. Not to mention she is not a bad actress.

Re: Janet Jackson current status?

zomg portugues e fan da Janet? Pensei que eu era o unico

Janet is currently working on her tour, she has the fastest selling tickets right now. I saw her in 08 and i cannot wait for her ot announce the European cities and dates

BTW , she said that every single show is going to be different (that's why she is dedicating a song to each city)
