Nobody ever said Janet was on the level of those 3 though. The reason why? Because she's not. Elvis, The Beatles and MJ are considered to be the "Holy Trinity of Pop" for a reason; they transcended everyone else.

Saying Janet isn't a legend because she isn't on that otherworldly level of fame is not a fair assessment. Based on that line of thinking, anybody not named Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, George Harrison or John Lennon isn't a legend either and that includes far more people than just Janet.

I could have gone to "lower" level of legendary artists such as Prince, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder etc but my point remains the same. Janet Jackson is obviously a very influential artist but to say she's a legend is pushing it as far as I'm concerned. And I'm not just directing that train of thought towards Janet. There are loads of artists I could mention who some would consider "legends" but if we're classing all these people as legends then where does it end? To refer to someone as a legend in any particular field they have to be more than just good or even great. They have to be better than that. They have to be more than just influential, they have to be VITAL. At least, that's how I would classify the term "legend". That's how I come to the distinction that The Beatles are legendary despite me not liking them and the likes of Janet Jackson, Bon Jovi, Nirvana etc are not. Now, you probably see it differently or have another, more forgiving criteria of what makes a legend, and that's fine, but it's just not how I see it.

Eh. To each their own, I suppose.

What they did to Janet was so wrong. Justin does not care what any of us think -- the dude is worth like 300M.......do you think he cares? eek

I don't think he gives a shit about Janet. I also don't even think they have mended fences, juding by that statement she put out a day before the Superbowl.

.

You're right -- it does not appear that they have.

What Justin is experiencing is NOTHING compared to way janet was ripped to shreds for 14 years and blacklisted. Justin will be fine....I'm sure he will have a successful album, tour and get alot of Grammy nominations.

[Edited 2/9/18 18:22pm]

I hope he won't. The Album sucks......but the Grammys are a joke anyway......

.

Get this.....I was in Best Buy yesterday, in the CD section (which they are clearing out); and in the "February Black History Month"........They had JTs new album, Man of the Woods.......Now, somebody please tell me.....since when has Justin been a black artist?? eek

.

Oh, and that's not all........I looked for PRINCE in the black history month section.....and he was not there!!!! mad mad mad mad

.

What's up with that??!! mad

Update: Sheila comments on the supposed Hologram.......

.

http://www.tmz.com/2018/0...-hologram/

Okay, that's fine with me. But it's still karma, because what happened to Janet wasn't her fault too and she had to take the heat while JT got away with grammys and other shit. So it's like he once sang: "What goes around come back around." lol I also think he'll just be fine tho. It's nothing near to what Janet had to go thru.

.

Justin seems to be made of Teflon......nothing sticks to him!!

.

I was thinking of "what comes around, goes around" too!! Seems so fitting, doesn't it?

can you explain why you got JT's new Album in the February Black History Month section? The f*ck. Since when is he a black artist and how exactly did he contribute to black history?

I tweeted them this. Let's hope they fix that disrespect.

Wow! You did? I should have said something to the Manager when I was there. They also had a display of JTs new album, and it appears to be selling quite well. Sheeples. lol

Being a black woman and a Jackson makes her an very easy target! Of course he doesn't care what any of us think......unless affects his career. Sure he copped a few hits, but his album went to No1 and his tour is selling out.......because he is a telfon who always floats by.

JT doesn't care -- he's going on tour and the SB was a good stage to promote his new album. I didn't like him having his listening party at PP either. mad
