a little positive news because i’m drained af today.
so it’s that time again.
i do a “janet” overdose of one of her albums to get my shit together.
this time it’s her self titled,
i have been listening to it,
on my commute to/from work.
i even be researching the background info about that era.
it’s a whole situation.
janet’s album are like her diaries to the world.
in my rating,
it’s comes after “rhythm nation 8701”,
and “the velvet rope” as my favorite albums from her.
it’s still a really good album.
this performance of “if” at the 1993 vmas…
98% don’t perform like this anymore.
well a foxholer sent me some good news today.
as you know,
janet is entering the “rock and roll hall of fame”.
i like who they chose to induct her via “the root”:
In a fabulous display of one generation honoring the former that inspired them and their own work, Janelle Monáe will be presenting Jackson with the coveted honor. Talk about giving flowers to those who came before you and paved the way—Monáe is a perfect choice, as the sex positivity displayed in her latest work Dirty Computer is somewhat reminiscent of Control-era Jackson’s self-actualization.
i can sooooooo dig it.
i gotta ask the foxhole something tho…
Does it seem like Britney Spears followed Janet’s footsteps?
before her breakdown,
britney use to be really precise with her dancing.
she use to say janet inspired her before she started saying madonna.
nothing about britney was like madonna.
i got more “janet” than anything else.
Is that just me?
i think the next album ima do is “all for you”.
that is my teen-hood.
i wore this song out:
you can watch janet get inducted into the “rock and roll hall of fame”,
april 27th at 8 pm on hbo.
