People need to stop putting off what fans do or say, onto the artist, themselves. Michael NOR Janet can help what their fans believe or don't believe. Janet has done absolutely NOTHING WRONG to her family, let alone her brother Michael; and vice versa. That family's love and unity should be the only thing shining through for all to see. May it be media-heads, fans, non-fans, and/or simple folks, the love and true earnesty between the Jacksons should be most important.
If you can't get with the artistic views of Janet, then so be it. Same goes for any other artist. But quit trying to take away the fact that Janet has made her presence known and felt throughout the world, just as Michael has. And she doesn't seem (in my opinion anyway) like she is condesending or the likes when it comes to her brother and/or family as a complete whole. To me, her brothers (esp. Michael) are her inspirations beyond any other being in this world. She has idolized her brother's talent and character more than ANY other Jackson sibling to date. No matter how much success or downfalls Michael has had, Janet (if not in person) seemed like she was right there by his side. No one knows differently, because you are NOT in the woman's mind. No one honestly knows what that woman has dealt with mentally when it comes to her family. We can only guess, but should not judge, and that is what I am seeing in this thread (and many others) to date.
Continue to go off what you read, hear, and/or etc. about Janet Jackson as factual, if you will. But know that you're coming across just as hypocritical as all the media-heads you so condemn for doing to wards Michael Jackson. This goes for some (if not most) Janet Jackson fans as well.
Again, if you don't care for the woman artistically, then you simply don't. Janet is not for you and I am sure the lady is not losing sleep concerning your thoughts on her. But one thing you can not take away from her is the mere fact that she has to have (at the very least) some type of talent, or she would not have the status that she has in the music world today. I love both Mike and Janet, though I may own more MJ CD's than Janet's, it doesn't waiver how I feel about them both. And I would NEVER pit the two of them against each other. They are a family, a unit of everlasting love and I will forever have MUCH RESPECT FOR BOTH....
Just my 5 1/2 cents on the matter :flowers:
