I don't want to say I hate Britney but I saw what she did from day 1 and hated her so much for it, cause people were feeling Britney more when she was a total rip off, even working with Janet's directors and previous staff. Yet Madonna got credit for inspiring her when it was mj and Janet. I guess the industry is to blame more than her

And the fact wade robson played a big role really leaves an even more sour taste

TRUTH! lol lol lol I'm curious, what did the Britney stan say when he was skooled on the facts? And it irked me as well that Madonna got all the credit for inspiring Britney's image, when it's clearly Janet that she's mimicked from day one.

Britney is sweet, she's always said Janet & Michael are her idols. I see Janet in her performance and music more than Madonna, way more. Britney does the 'get nasty' and 'chicka' things Jan does.

Yeah, and she also does that "SING!" thing that Janet always does.

speaking of this , have you read this article?

Britney Spears: A White J...as Madonna

Britney Spears Janet Jackson TheLavaLizard

Britney Spears and Janet Jackson

When Britney Spears first burst onto the music scene, she was heralded as the leading entertainer of the new generation of Pop stars primed to dominate the turn of the century. Of course, beyond her talent as a performer, what propelled her to the top of the pack was her packaging as the next Madonna…or was she really just Janet Jackson by another name?

If you paid close attention to Spears’ style during her younger years, you should have observed the blatant similarities between her and Jackson. The budding vocalist who showed off impressive pipes during her first appearance on Star Search adopted more sultry singing suited to club hits that could have easily been written for Jackson. Spears also included group choreography into her routines and a subtle sex appeal that bordered on risqué without crossing the line into hooker territory.

Spears’ career even followed a similar trajectory to that of Jackson as she matured as an artist. She gradually swapped her girl next door image for the sexy vixen at the bar who was clearly out of your league but you still asked her to dance because you couldn’t resist the dimples and tramp stamp on her lower back.

In fact, Spears was basically one step behind Jackson in 2001 as her coming of age album, Britney, seemed to be an ode to her counterpart’s All of You record of that year. She was suddenly showing more skin, her videos were laced with darker, more sexually-charged imagery and her footwork emulated Jackson’s movements, which were based on the slick turns, smaller steps and perfectly timed heel to toe switches. Clearly, I watched far too many episodes of America’s Best Dance Crew.

By the In the Zone album of 2003, Spears’ fashion choices, dancing and music was so similar to Jackson that it was baffling that they weren’t being highlighted by the media. Even her ballads were comparable to Jackson’s work. Really, the piano and string-assisted “Everytime” was just the depressed little sister of Jackson’s “Again”.

Yet, if these parallels between Spears and Jackson were so clear, why was the former presented to the world as the next Madonna? You know what I’m about to suggest; you can feel it in your bones and you’re hoping I don’t say it but I will. The answer is simple: Madonna is white.

Although Madonna has long been known as the industry’s unapologetic tramp – well, Rihanna technically stole that title a while ago – and the memory of her Sex book continues to haunt the memories of middle America citizens, the mere fact that she is a white Pop artist opens doors that black acts have to work much harder to crack. Even when her career had lost steam in the mid-1990s, and Jackson was dominating both the charts and the tour circuit, Madonna was still recognised by the media as the “undisputed” Queen of Pop.

Naturally, if Spears’ team wanted her to be great, it would make perfect sense to market her as the next Madonna instead of comparing her to Jackson, although Spears had very little in common with Madonna beyond the colour of her skin. Think about it: how many major white performers have ever been called the next [insert black artist other Michael Jackson here]? As crude as it may seem, cultural and social ideals reflected in the media would deem such parallels as unfavourable. Simply, that would be “beneath” them.

So, Spears copied Jackson’s every move prior to the Damita Jo album, targeted a younger crowd and was paraded to the world as the next Madonna. Moreover, with the formerly music-driven MTV, specifically TRL, providing the viewers audience with a steady stream of propaganda to support the delusion illusion, it was difficult for any person to change public perception.

Interestingly, a white artist has since shattered the smoke and mirrors that tricked the public into believing that Spears was the second coming of Madonna. Indeed, Lady Gaga imitates Madonna to such a startling degree that it is impossible to deny their similarities and now that Spears has become unfit to carry the mantle following her breakdown, there is space for a new heir to imaginary Pop throne.

Many of you may be wondering why I include discussions of race/colour/ethnicity while presenting my theories and analyses of various artists’ careers but I remain resolute in my position. It is impossible to develop an understand of popular culture without deconstructing the various ideologies that feed the beast. This isn’t a fantasy land; it’s the music industry, and similar to other areas of mass media, it affects and reflects reality.

The Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know video was inspired by the beach scenes of Love Will Never Do (Without You). Britney worked with the same director

Britney quote about Janet found:

"I may not brag about it as much. But as far as sex goes, I've done similar things to what Janet Jackson has done."

Justin Timberlake's original crush was Janet

Growing up, JT was infatuated with Janet and was a huge fan. He said he wanted a girl like her and said she had "the voice of an angel".

Ironically, he went on to date Britney, who has a very similar persona to Janet, and Britney revealed their first kiss was to a Janet song. JT later opened for Janet's 'Velvet Rope' tour, and claimed his experience on the tour helped develop him as an artist and improved his performing.

Anytime there's a successful white female artist they want to compare them to Madonna. I never felt that Britney was anything like Madonna at all and agree with all of the Janet Jackson comparisons. If anything I feel that Rhianna is kind of like the new Madonna, with the being able to easily mold herself according to the new trend and working with good writers and producers.
