VIDEO THROWBACK: The Janet

When I was like 9 or 10 years old, I actually wanted to be Janet Jackson.

I had different love for her music - I would try and learn all the dance routines from her videos, sing in front of the mirror styled as The Janet, and my family would further indulge me by buying me all her lastest music.

'Design Of The Decade' was one of the first CDs I ever got.


It would be the understatement of the year to say that I am no longer feeling The Janet's music these days, which is a big shame. In my humble opinion, everything post 'The Velvet Rope' has been swag...plus she was behaving kinda suspect for a bit I think.
Anyways, I felt it nesscessary to give props to one of her earlier vids for the single 'Pleasure Principle'. This is one of my favourite tunes which I regularly put on full blast. Just check out the video and you'll see where many of todays R'n'B wastechick-wannabees hijacked the formula.



I still have mad love for The Janet - no doubt will she always be the icon!!
