Janet Jackson is trying to pull a fast one

Well “20 Y.O.” comes out today, and I for one can’t buy into the hype.

“Since the release of her 1986 groundbreaking album Control, Janet Jackson has done just that by taking control of her career. Her groundbreaking musical style, compelling music videos and show stopping performances have impacted the world, making her an international iconic superstar. Janet’s new album 20 Y.O. is the celebration of her 20 years since taking control and shows why she remains a staple in mainstream popular music.”

I love how people just completely ignore the fact that she had 2 albums before “Control”. Not me. I bet if I tried hard enough, I could go through my mother’s album collection and find them shits. Nigga, I remember “Dream Street”, don’t try to hide that from me. It’s true, your career was heading down the same path as LaToya & Rebbie before Jam & Lewis got fired by Prince and you all hooked up in Minneapolis, but that’s no reason to pretend the previous 4 years didn’t happen. Embrace the wackness. It’s what made you, you. We’ll still love you, even if you are fucking Master Splinter

    Word up, because I remember rollin in Sheena Jenkin’s new Nissan Sentra listenin’ to her wack whisperin’ style waaaaaaaaaaay back then. But it’s okay…’cause she was Cleo on the wack-azz tv version of fame (pre-weave) AND…if you wanna take it there, she was Willis’s girlfriend Charlene on Different strokes…although those last 2 references were not musical….I remember!

    You are so wrong.

    Now you know she meant 20 yrs she’s had control without Joe Jackson. He was the reason the first two albums flopped right along with Rebbie’s and LeToya’s.

    Look at Michael, after the Jackson 5’s and firing Joe, he took off. Janet did the same thing with Control. So I don’t think she’s trying to pull a fast one.

    That’s right. Bring it back to the
    iron marks on her back and Willona ready to kick somebody’s ass.

    And “Young Love” was my shit.
    Why forget the classics and the old nose?

    she said something about the first 2 albums not being her and recorded by someone else. if i remember correctly, she also said something like she doesn’t even really remember them. personally, i think i’d rather listen to “you don’t stand (another chance)” over anything off the recent lp. that thing is just no.
