    Uh, Janet, it’s time to go the Cher route, Las Vegas revue show. If that doesn’t work, there’s always the county fair circuit. Face it – You’re no longer relevant – It happens! Dare to be different and bow out gracefully. There’s no shame in accepting the fact that the music business culture has changed and passed you by.

    Ahhh, poor Janet, I was really hoping she could pull it off with her last album, but I guess not…

    Chris Rock should really consider taking legal action agaist these bafoons!

    Aaaaw that wasn’t funny ppoor Chris…

    And Janet shoulda saw this coming, SMH…She should ask her boy toy Jermaine for help doesn’t he have his own label??

  • VoiceOfReason

    Ummm, sweetie, they stopped promoting it because you, like the album, are wack.

    Chris Rock should sue they hell out of whoever was behind this! Reality shows are really getting out of control. You can’t mess with a person’s life like that while you’re trying to play a trick on them. There’s a difference between setting someone up an a blind date that will be purposely bad(Hell Date)and setting someone up saying they raped an underage person. Allegations like these could have put Chris under the jail with no questions asked.

    Record sales are down for everyone… period. No one buys music anymore, they steal it. That’s why celebrities are doing so much more than just act or sing. They have fashion lines, perfume, etc. They are doing what they can to stay afloat. You never saw Anita Baker do other ish. Some may write a book after they’ve been out awhile about their life or something like that but not like celebs today.

    There is no need to blame the record label, the CD was wack. So was 20 YO. I think Janet’s problem is she’s still trying to act like a 20 year old. Maybe trying a more mature sound could work for her. Granted she doesn’t have the greatest voice but she could play around with her style a little more instead of competing with these young girls. She has nothing to prove cause she’s made her mark. She did a really good job in ‘Why did I get married’. Maybe she can focus on acting more and just bow out from the music scene.

    As for Janet…She’s had her time. It’s time for her to fade into the background as JD’s wife, have some kids, and enjoy life. The sooner that music artists start realizing that you can’t be on the scene for ever, the better off they will be. It’s all about acceptance. They have to accept that they have had their time in the spotlight and now it’s time to pass the torch. I think Janet needs to hang it up along with Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Diddy, and Jay-Z. And maybe Usher in the near future. I would add Snoop to the list too but he still makes some bad ass party records.

    I agree with all except Snoop, Mariah, and Mary J. They are still hitting #1 spots. Didn’t Mariah just break the Beatles record for number 1s with this last single? I think I read that either them or Elvis or somebody like that.

    Co-sign@Marquis de Sade’s suggestion that Janet just do the Vegas circuit. She would do year-long revue performing hits past and present (mostly past), and make all the money she didn’t make off her lastest albums, plus some extra to help her broke brother Michael. Shoo, it worked for Celine Dion, Cher, and Toni Braxton. I’d see her doing “Pleasure Principle” at the Palms!
