This Video is a masterpiece.

This Video is a masterpiece. This is the why it is good to watch a performance artist of the caliber of Janet. She never really was a singer but puts on a great show with her music and dancing and song. I think with this video she took up where she left off with the Escapade video where she used one continuous shot of film from start to finish with out a single cut in the whole scene. So understanding that this video was done in a single take you can then appreciate the masterful choreography and filming it took to put this together. Oh and this is a hot club jam if you like to dance.

I like the song, but I can't

I like the song, but I can't seem to listen to it without hearing Michael Jackson's version of Rock with you in my head. But other than that the video is...different but cool.

Maybe its just me, but this

Maybe its just me, but this song kinda reminds me of Love Fool by The Cardigans.

As a Janet fan who is OLDER

As a Janet fan who is OLDER than she, I love that she is still giving her international fan base what they want. Love the video and the choreography is on point - not AT ALL the "rhythm nation" stuff earlier posters mentioned. Have the "booty poppin on the street corner/club in the ghetto with my tattoo'd friends" videos really dulled your senses to choreography as opposed to street dance? Black folk are so much more broad that that and we should seek to highlight our depth. You guys should check out "This Can't B Good" from her CD. Meanwhile, her legendary status continues...

what i find most disturbing

what i find most disturbing about this entire thread is that people are actually saying alicia keys can SING! huh? what? how old are you guys, and who are you using as a bar to measure alicia's voice against? ciara? rihanna? because when you measure her against REAL singers - whitney, mariah, patti, aretha, anita baker, etc. - alicia keys should be in a kareoke bar. she's GOOD writer, and pianist, but good singer - HELL NO!

I am not a Janet Jackson fan,

I am not a Janet Jackson fan, but this video and song is amazing. The choreography is unbelievable. Those comments about her age, puh-leeze you'll be there too. I love seeing black artists coming up with creative videos and expand. Very sensual and love the hair too.

I'd like to see Ms.Jackson expand her horizons. She is so talented and creative.

There are so many backward

There are so many backward thinking people on this post. I am not saying this because most of you don't like Janet; I am saying this because you can't accept diversity in your own race. Try listening to other music other than R&B. Janet has always been a diverse artist that includes Rock, House, Jazz and R&B in her music. Check out her collection of over 20 years of music. This video that everyone is b-tching about is House music. Also, this society is so sick to think that a woman should stop living because she is 40+. Get real!

Are there any real clubheads

Are there any real clubheads here (or former)? This is a true house song! Janet is 40 and fabulous!! For her to still work it like this and have a #1 album, I am proud to be pushing 40!

It's so funny how career

It's so funny how career blogger comment haters always have SOMETHING to say -- its like its their job to hate on people. (LMAO @ them.) Now before people start coming at me I do know the difference between your opinion and pure hate and the things that people say on these blogs are usually more than just opionion its Hating. If you dont like someone, something, or how something is DONE then just state that. No need to put someone who is 40 into retirement (LOL) just saying that makes me laugh. On TOP of that...I know a lot of 40 year olds...I remember when my mother was 40...and I must say Janet looks DAMN good for 40. She is a pretty woman (In my PERSONAL opinion) and I think her body is better than A LOT of women her age and YOUNGER. So when people say she is old, ugly, wash up, and all those other exaggerated and hateful things...it shows that these people behind their computer screens are all of those things to themselves b/c Janet keeps on pushing and doesnt even THINK of people who have these nasty things to say about her. I uplift this beautiful black sister who (IN MY OPINION) set the standard just as other pioneers before her have (Diana Ross, Josephine Baker) if it werent for the past there would be no present. Respect musical royalty people. You dont have to like. But Respect. As for The Video - I LOVE IT! -LB

now i LOVES me some Janet but

now i LOVES me some Janet but for some reason... i'm not loving this video at all. i feel like i've seen her do the same things before and i KNOW Ms. Jackson has more hotness up her sleeves than this. The look of the video was marginal and i'm really not feeling that wig they slapped on her head (nope, not one bit, uh uh) i think it just made her look too old. either way, i'm still a Janet-lover. I just wanna see more of what i know she bring. as for the vocals... let's be real, have we ever really listened to Janet for her "immense" vocal ability? i doubt it but you still gotta love her.

[quote comment="46812"]Read

[quote comment="46812"]Read what I wrote before you ignorant ppl decide to start cursing me out for speaking the TRUTH. ^^^^ Ok BK Bitch..I read what you wrote and now I'll respond. LISTEN UP! Not everybody wants their artist to sit behind a fucking piano and sing. I repeat. Not everybody wants their artist to sit behind a fucking piano and sing. Yes, that is a talent but it's not the end all be all when one seeks to be entertained. Your comment it so ignorant in that you are basically saying R&B is solely about your vocal ability and not your ability to perform or entertain a crowd. Do you folks who think vocal ability to be able to sing like Beyonce, Alicia or Mariah is the ONLY thing a person wants to hear every time they turn on a radio. How fucking boring would that be? And to bring up past flops of JJ is stupid. ALL SINGERS/ENTERTAINERS experience flops in their career. (GLITTER!) It has nothing to do with their vocal ability at times. Damn....there is nothing worse than a close minded 'bitch'! And obviously a lot of people dont agree with you or else all those artist you mentioned (Ciara, Britney, etc) wouldn't be doing shit if the vast majority felt like you. Go Sit Down![/quote] PREACH!!!!!!!!!!

You all are hilarious...The video was one of the best I have ever seen and I'm not saying that because my nephew was in it..because he was in Gnarles Barkley's as well, which was good too...but truly this video was real sick. I am not really sure if you people(the ones's that don't like the video) are real creative people(you know, the ability to think outside the norm).

I LOVED Feedback so I went

I LOVED Feedback so I went out and copped the CD in the first week. When I listened to the CD I was VERY disappointed because this was the only other song I liked on it. So today while running errands I decided to give it another shot and see if a couple of more songs could grow on me. Now I'm wondering if I was on the cell phone or something the first time I listened to it because her CD is really on point. There are only two songs on it that I don't like. I guess it's differant strokes for differant folks because I have loved this song from the beginning. The video is good although I admit that wig combined with the lighting in the video is not doing Janet and favors.

Janet is worth hundreds of millions of dollars so she probably don't giv a f*ck bout any posts. But I wasn't crazy bout it either. But clearly dis video wasn't even for da str8 or r and b crowd. Janet knows her audience

[quote comment="46793"]Janet

[quote comment="46793"]Janet needs to give it up. Y is she still trying? didn't she get the picture 2 albums ago when she flopped back 2 back. In all honesty she CAN NOT sing worth a damn and I don't know how she made it this far. Yes she can dance her ass off, I'll give her that, but why is she classified as a singer? Thats the problem. Because of her, people like Ciara, Cassie, Rihanna, and even Britney Spears enter the industry soley b/c they can entertain a effing crowd but put them in a room with just a microphone and their voice...they wouldn't know what the F to do. That's why they always gotta have some crazy ass video or dance performance to hide the fact that they can't sing. Now when you get someone like Alicia Keys, who sits down in front of a keyboard for a whole video and not dance her ass all over the place cause she doesn't need to b/c she got her voice to back her sh*t up on, she can sell 700K albums in 1 week b/c what she does is makes good music. Unlike these other f*cking "artists" who are just faking the funk. I'm just being honest. Read what I wrote before you ignorant ppl decide to start cursing me out for speaking the TRUTH.[/quote] BK, i read what you wrote and are entitled to voice your opinion. As I will write now, There is NO WAY Janet was the catalyst for Brit, Cassie and Ciara. That's not the most smartest thing to say. I would have probably said that Brit lead the way for singers who cannot sing to make their way into the industry. You are entitled to say that Janet cannot sing but she can...that girl can sing.. Comparing her to Alicia Keys does not make any sense... They dont sing the same type of music and they appeal to different crowds. Janet is far from washed up..GO JANET...

wow. the comments. JANET IS

wow. the comments. JANET IS fab. the song i did not love, however i am glad that she still sells records. I am older as well, she looks good. I wonder what some of you will be thinking when your 35+, you will still be listening to music and buying music over 30...right? You'll see ...just wait you will not want to listen to the new 17 year old putting out there first cd. HOW COME NO ONE EVER SAYS ANYTHING NEGATIVE OR NASTY ABOUT THE MEN OVER 30? I MEAN REALLY. I am 39 and JZ was putting out records when I was a teenager and he claims he is 35...whateva he was in 19-20 then? So how come I got older and he did'nt? REally no disrespect...but Janet is Fab, 40, whateva if these mature men can stay in the game and make a dolla, well damn let her make that CASH.

TO PAGE BLACK AND Miss P&J:

TO PAGE BLACK AND Miss P&J: I wont even waste my time trying to debate with you on JJ's icon status from then or now----since obviously you must be on her payroll. But I just want you to note that all the analogies, examples, glowing references that you give to JJ are from works that she put out dayum near 2 decades ago. In her own words "WHAT HAS SHE DONE FOR US LATELY"

maaan, some of you folks

maaan, some of you folks posting on here are really serious about your icons, your faves and so on..and when i say that's great, it is.. this is a gret forum for open, honest expression. if one does not like the artist/album/video, that's their opinion and it doesn't make them a hater, a bitch or an idiot as a result. if you like it, i love it but we're all entitled to an opinion...personally, i agree with everyone: janet IS an icon; she WAS good at what she brought to pop music (posterity in her past albums and videos - how can you forget all them videos she did for the rhythm nation album?) she IS 41 and needs to come with something more fitting to her growth. i didn't even give the video time because i'm not seeing ms. jackson's growth as an artist (based on those last 2 albums that are collecting dust in my garage), but i'm not so close minded that when she comes with a banger, i won't support her. if one cannot appreciate anothers differences, then who is really the hater? i'm just sayin.. rant:over

I come on here all the time and read how these folks bash JJ into the ground on some ole stupid shit. Nobody was worried about her vocals or lack their of when they were jammin' 'Thats The Way Love Goes' back in the day. And then wanna trash her for still dancing as if dancing is outdated and something you only should be doing if you are 30 and under. There are plenty of artist I dont feel but Ill be damn if Im gonna give stupid reasons like these to dis them. If you say you dont like it..I can respect that..but dont compare and contrast this icon when the very same artist you compare her to has gleaned SOMETHING from. MARY INCLUDED! Yall think Mary wasn't bumpin' Janet back in the day? Yall out your mind!
