    Ok, I'm a little confused by what I saw last night and almost slightly disturbed!

    I was watching TV last night and all of a sudden a Nivea commercial came on and then I hear "Rock With U" begin playing during the commercial and the 1st thing I thought was "WTF?!?!?" What is she doing?!?!?!? See below if you haven't seen it, but it's HORRIBLE!!! Has she officially sold out?!?!?!?

    ps... It's a BAD quality video

    I've always thought Janet Jackson is hot and talented. Even as "penny" on good times I thought she was cute. How she advertises for her concert does not really bother me. Besides as beautiful as she is, why not pair here up a beauty lotion? Now if she did a McDonalds ad, then that's another thing lol.

    I have a cousin that kind of reminds me of Janet Jackson, by the way, and she is a beautiful 40 but could pass for 20 something .. I swear.

    Artists gotta get their endorsements!

    Also, she was jijpped by her record label this time around. They were not happy with the singles she released, "Feed back" in particular. So they basically said,... Okay, we'll we're not letting you put out anymore singles nor are we going to promote your cd anymore.

    Her Album did well for a short period of time then died a quick death.

    and the sad thing is that feedback i thought was one of her best singles since all for u. u would think that an artist of her status would be able to have a little say in what songs she wants to release.

    TOTALLY with both of you guys!! Unfortunately we don't know what's REALLY going on there but something is DEFINITELY wrong with Janet & Island Records; still wanting her to bounce right back!!!

    Hell, Queen Latifah does commercials. I'm not bothered.

    Besides, she has to do something since she can't play Lena Horne anymore. Damned wardrobe malfunction.

    She hasn't made a good song since the 90s. She is over. Would she have ever had a career if she hadn't had her older brother? I don't think so.

    I like the album. "Luv" "2Nite" and "So Much Betta" are excellent tracks. I can't get enough of "Luv" and "2Nite". Great tracks.

    Wow you'd think once people mature they would understand that taste varies, she hasn't made a good song since the 90's? I strongly disagree. She would be over once there was absolutely no one left who liked her..

    Please go back to your madonna fan-world

    i'm going to exercise restraint here...

    it's not like janet was selling the lotion in an infomercial à la cher. it's just a song placement for an endorsement. since her damned shitty record label isn't helping promote the tour, it had to be done some other way... it's just an endorsement. not any worse than michael or madonna being with pepsi. for a second i was clutching my pearls - i thought you were gonna show me a clip of janet on a pleather couch on the shopping network...

    as for the notion that she's not released a good song since the 90's - this is of course an objective statement, and people are entitled to their opinions; however, i would point out that janet has released 3 albums since the superbowl and they've been blacklisted, despite having some AWESOME singles...

    singles that should've been hits on 2004's "damita jo:" strawberry bounce, all nite (don't stop), like you don't love me, slow love, just a little while, i want you

    on 2006's "20 y.o.:" so excited, sho me, do it to me, daybreak, ENJOY (easily one of the best songs janet has EVER recorded)... if it had gotten the proper promotion, "enjoy" could've been a #1 hit.

    on 2008's "discipline:" feedback, either luv or rollercoaster, 2night, so much betta, the 1


    janet hasn't stopped releasing good material, she got fucked over because she's a black woman who also happens to be a jackson. justin timberlake isn't some prodigy who deserved to get a get out of jail free pass... that honky is the white man who reached over and pulled her titty out in the first damn place. just timbersnake, mtv, the networks, and the public for that matter, threw janet under the bus and then went out and bought justin's album. it's one of the most glaring acts of mysoginist racism i've ever seen. BOO on double standards. BOO BOO BOO.

    incidentally, i've got my floor ticket for the concert in greensboro, nc on october 4. WOOOOOOOO HOOOOO!!!

    Janet Jackson did really well in the music business until that Super Bowl Half Time Show, which America will never forget.icon_lol.gif

    Now,her music has changed for the worst in my opinion.
