  1. It is very futuristic and the dancing is tight. Janet did good :thumbsup:

  2. The ending is off the hook. The whole video should have been Janet dancing dancing in that red cat suit and black boots. I am sp loving the attitude. :dance:

  3. Ciara, Beyonce and Rihanna take notes…Janet is back…I have not seen a video like this in a long time..Loving the video..I glad she didn’t do a lot of dancing becasue the special effect was great!!!!!!!!!

  4. That was hoooooot!!! Janet is back. Its about time; now beyonce can take her Latina ass somewhere and sit down. :dance1:

  5. The beginning is really dark which I blame on the size and quality of the video. It looked better when I saw the preview on BET. The ending is the best because it shows better and the dancing is amazing. I already loved the song and the video goes nicely with it. Here is hoping things turn around for Janet with this new CD. I cannot wait for the tour which is definitely going to happen this time around.

  6. Janet can dance but Nothing else. Ciara better take voice lessons. Bey is a better singer no doubt. I waiting for Mariah’s next album.

  7. The song had to grow on me and now I really like it! The video is cool too, it vaguely reminds me of The Klaxons “Golden Skans” music video with the space type theme. :iagree: the ending is really off the chain! :dance:

  8. tell everybody siut the hell down this is jay’s year i wouldnt release shoo this year no one can beat that i’m sorry no one can beat that :noway:

  9. This is what i call dancing no crotch shot , no hoochie like grind, janet is so mature you can feel it in her moves she is precise creative and confident it’s like she is is telling you “i know i can dance
    ” by her moves not “i’m i turning you on,do you want me,look at my long weave,i’m i exiting, not too fat, are you sure? ” she is officially a grown mature and sexy

    ladies fourty is THE age

    *i aint trying to be nasty but the title feedback and the milk efect makes me think about an whole other kind of feedback

  10. You guys must watch this video on television because it is ten times better and clearer. You see things you don’t see in the video above. Janet really came back strong and I am happy for her. :dance:

  11. I already liked the song but the video magnified the joint. I hope people let her get beyond the SuperBowl fiasco and continue to showcase her entertainment. i definitely hope she tours this year. the dance :dance1: :dance2: steps in the end are hott :dance:

  12. Im not feeling it, I kept waiting for the good part!!!!
    I feel like it took soooooooooooooo long to get the dancing to start. Even on t.v. the begining was to dark.

  13. Let me tell you the truth.I love the music but not the video! However, i loved the dance scene that Janet wore that red suit at the end of the video.
    I just expected a more colorful video!

    Luv J anyway.

  14. I really like the song but the video is dumb IMO, I miss the days when Janet would put out a video that would keep me glued to the TV.

  15. I LIKE THE RED CAT SUIT ON HER AND THE ENDING IS VERY NICE . :dance1:

    THESE R&B POP CHICKS BEEN LOOKIN’ UP TO JANET…………………..THERE CALLED SWAGGERJACKERS 😆

  16. I love the video can we all say eartha Kitt which is cool because I know Janet wanted to play her. I love it

  17. Janet is Back! I love this lady.
    The video fits her age, I am happy she did not come out looking like she is trying to be 20….her body is the bomb! This song is great, I have attached the 6 minute extended version because it is hot.
    Turn your bass all the way up

  18. Jay is breath taking 40 is indeed the age she look stunning if i was a rnb chick my mouth would still be open i wouldn’t release anything neither because black people love to compare and no one can compare to jay

  19. wow! Janet is not to be phuked with :dance1: and that is all I have to say :bowdown:

  20. Everyone saying its Janet’s year but I’ll wait until her sales come in, THEN WE’LL SEE THE TRUTH LOL! :thumbsup:

  21. :bowdown: Janet rips the dance floor ALWAYS!! That is the first time in a long time I have seen her get down like that on the dance floor. THAT is the Janet I remember. Go head Lady!!! 41 years old and tearing it down. YOU GUYS I HAVE TO TELL YOU …….I AM A JANET STAN :confused: SORRRY!!!! Always was.

  22. man, i actually got off the phone to watch janet video. even though im not a big fan anymore, i was anticipating a better try on her part than last year
    i was disappointed
    this ish is whack as hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    what was that whole kicking balls of light around. and i saw an interview she did with extra and she explained that this video was her vision of a perfect world
    ***** is crazy if she thinks thats a perfect world
    janet is a weirdo that is played out and trying so hard to prove that she still got it. look we get it already! u have nice breast implants, u WERE an icon, u r sexy, ur kindof a good dancer WHEN THE CHOREOGRAPHY IS GOOD. but uh, thats about it. she need to let this go and let the new young girls do what they do(ciara, rihanna,): get famous off dancing and being sexy, but not much talent
    lol
    ya know i aint lying

  23. Janet rocked it, no doubt about it. The video was different from what I was picturing in my head when listening to the song, but I still liked it. Janet is The Dancer, and I’m glad she continued to prove it in this video. I like that it builds up to the dance scenes, which don’t fail to disappoint. Those little cutesy pop steps are no longer going to be mistaken for dancing I hope.

  24. 🙄 kids anyway i wonder what will be the tone of the new album feedback is a bit rockish to me what do yall think?
    majesa 😆

  25. I agree with you JBL,Janet looks very sexy in the red leather suite.
    she has always danced very good,Go Ms Janet Jackson :brownsista: wit ya find self,I like the video,and the special effects,I think you done it again, :thumbsup: :dance1:

  26. BEAUTY IS A HATER DIS HO WENT TO ALL THESE BLOGS N COPY N PASTE DA SAME COMMENT SHE JUST MADE.

    JANET DO UR THANG MA.

  27. Janet looks great BUT!, She is still whispering when she sings and that routine looks like the same routine she did 5-6 years ago from all of the award shows she was invited to perform and lip-sync in. Even that concert in Hawaii she did a longer version of almost the same dance steps. Look let’s be honest, :noway: the last time Janet danced and I mean REALLY DANCED was in the “Alright” video with Cab Callaway and those FUNKY-FLY FRESH zoot suits and hats.That video was second only to Michaels “Thriller” as far as the dancing. Janet jammed in that video. Go back and check it out on You Tube. Girl rocked it. Sorry the video special effects are good and the outfit is looks great on her. But I can’t see myself asking some honey to dance off that song at the club. :noway:

  28. :dance2: NOW I JUST SAID THIS ON ANOTHER BLOG, I AM A BIG JANET HATER BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE ALL THE FEMALE ARTIST WANTS TO BE LIKE HER AND IT MADE ME MAD, BUT I CAN NOT HATE ON THIS, THIS IS THE SHYT!!! JANET RAISED THE BAR ON THIS ONE, VERY DIFFERENT, FUTURIST, EUROPEAN STYLE VIDEO. I LOVE IT. LET ME SAY IT AGAIN BECAUSE I CAN NOT BELEIVE THAT I AM GIVING JANET A COMPLIMENT, BUT SHE DID THE DAMN THING ON THIS, SHE WAS AHEAD OF HER TIME ON THIS IT’S LIKE SHE WAS THINKING ON ANOTHER PLANET WITH THIS VIDEO. I SORRY BUT NO OTHER ARTIST COULD HAVE DONE THIS NO ONE BUT MICHAEL JACKSON. JANET JACKSON IS THE FEMALE MICHAEL JACKSON , I THINK NOW I AM A BIG JANET JACKSON FAN!! I LOVE THIS I HAVE BEEN PLAYING THE SONG EVERY SINCE IT LEAKED BECAUSE WHEN I FIRST HEARD IT ON THE RADIO THEY NEVER SAID WHO IT WAS, AND I WAS IN MY CAR TRYING TO DANCE TO IT. JANET KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, YOU ALWAYS SET THE STANDARDS FOR THESE OTHER ARTIST TO FOLLOW!!

  29. I love Janet but…….I mean she needs to switch her style up I thought she was gonna do that this time I don’t understand. That song could have been put on the last album(as far as blend). I love her but I don’t want to hear anymore songs like what she’s already done. She needs to take a page from Madonna and switch it up. Madonna does that real well and thats why she ahs lasted so long and still inspires new artist. Janet doesn’t inspire, you know what the records will sound like before it comes out. SORRY

  30. What were some of you expecting? What more? 😆

    I love this vid!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my God Janet is just FIERCE! I love this song and I love the video. I thought it was a little slow-going at first and the vid is dark…maybe it’s because of the computer screen? Anyhoo, it progressed and I ‘sort’ of get it. Planets and stuff, right? Still, Janet is awesome and I’m loving the song and can’t wait to hear more from her in 2008! :brownsista:

  31. Kanyade I agree with you. At first the video was a little slow, but when they got to the dancing it was good. She can still kill the dance floor. I wish she would do it more often. For some reason I picutred the video with more colors, like being in a club or something. None the less it was good. Even my husband liked it and he doesn’t really comment on things like that.

  32. Red suit was the best…I really need to rock one of those–but being a 34 year old wife and mother–I can probably only get away with rocking it at home in my room loI :lol2:

    I think how you see the video depends on how much crud (i.e. funky attitude stuff) is in your eyes (or at least mine). Case in point.

    I watched it last night after a nutty day at work (I was in a pissy mood) and thought: “hmmmm…ok Janet…damn its so dark…Can’t see anything–i’m getting old….but I love you Janet so and I’m a stan so…ok…”…

    Then I watched it again after I worked out, got pumped up, felt better about following through on a workout despite being tired and pissy and got the funk out of my attitude and THEN I thought ” Damn….this is unique….Hmmm….that looks like a b-boy battle in space (breakdance battle for you “youngins”) That’s Hot!!!”

    Then after I did my 5 am workout I watched it again when I sat down to check my emails and I thought: ” You GO GIRL! that’s sexy sexy sexy! ”

    hahahahahah because I felt fired up, unique, hot, and sexy sexy sexy.

    get it?

    Haters hate others and hate everything–because they hate themselves. The video is not the run of the mill video, run of the mill is boring. This video, this song, and ms. Jackson are
    Sexy Sexy Sexy!

    hhahahahahhahahahah

    I have a feeling Janet is going to drop it like its hot on this album.

    Don’t mind me…I always get a little amped up after a good workout and a fly song.

    Loved it. I don’t even party and I’m going out to a club JUST so I can dance to this song…and be sexy sexy sexy!

    Nef—>ChocolatePeach

  33. Janet is back ladies. I love the video i been a fan since control she is killing the dance move to MISS DEL u do not know nothing about dancing u can not say she rock in the IF video u can not said she rock in all the recent video she had on her last album. Yes the song is a song u do dance all by yourself and be rocking so when the next song come on honey will come up to u and dance lol. She been in the business for along time. She a good actor and great performer and she 40. Go Miss Jackson.

  34. This is my second time watching and I must say I like it better now. This one is much better than the “call on me” video. Gotta give her props – she might just be back!

  35. This video is deep. The entire video is a metaphor for part of the reproductive process. janet and her dancer are the sprem laying around until the ovum appears after passing by the sun. Then they race to fertilize. When they all three reach the planet/ovum they fight for entry. Janet defeats the other two sperm and then jumps into the first layer of the ovum. the other sperm see the opening and follow in after her, but after the dance(battle) janet breaks the ball and she wins. Now its just her by herself mixing these white balls(dna) and after she finishes there is an explosion of many other white balls signigying the replication of the dna creating human life.

    This is video of the year EASY!!

  37. hey, that was a pretty dope little break down of the video, i cant even front. i guess i got a better idea of it now. but she still a weirdo…the director is pretty damn creative though

  38. Island Def Jam posts new information about Discipline on website

    Island Def Jam has posted brand new information about Janet’s upcoming album Discipline in Janet’s biography on the record company’s website.

    The full unedited entry is posted below:

    Sitting across from a roaring fireplace on winter afternoon in Vail, Janet is curled up on a dark leather couch as she discusses the unlikely topic of Discipline, the title of her new album. Beyond the floor-to-ceiling window, long graceful branches of towering trees are heavy with snow. In the distance, a lift carries skiers up an imposing mountain awash in white. Janet’s wearing a midnight-black sweat suit, her hair pulled back to the nape of her deck. Her body language is relaxed and her eyes are smiling. She’s trim, and also a little hoarse, having just fought off a cold. The whisper-quiet texture of her voice adds to the intimacy of the conversation.

    “Discipline has been much on my mind,” she says. “It’s the idea that unifies the songs on this record. As a concept, and even a lifestyle, discipline goes extremely deep. It can be applied to so much about ourselves. In my case, I see it as one of defining aspects of my character. Discipline was there for me from the start. But it was not until this record that I began to understand its full meaning. “In putting Discipline out front– as both the title of the album and title of a song about sexual surrender–I wanted to announce that I was venturing into new creative waters. That meant working with producers like Jermaine Dupri, Rodney Jerkins, and Ne-Yo, whose songs spoke to the immediacy of my emotions. Like all my records, this one, whether intentional or not, has autobiographical roots. It’s difficult for me to work any other way. I don’t feel it, if I don’t believe it, I can’t sing it.

    “So Discipline, as a storyline, begins in my childhood which someone could see as a classic study in discipline. Discipline was part of a family culture that I absorbed. I was born with it. “I also believe that discipline has given me the confidence to jump out of the nest. When L.A. Reid, Chairman of Island Def Jam, and I discussed co-executive producing this record, we both agreed that the feeling had to adventuresome and fresh. I was interested in exploring musical scenarios-some exotic, many erotic, but all deeply emotional. I wanted to push the envelope. And I’m glad that `Discipline,’ both as a song and an album, does just that.

  39. To Lady, there are is the “If” video which you can compare to this video which is just as boring and there is the “Alright” video that she really danced her behind off in. And I am a former dancer so I do know a little about dancing. Sorry yall, again the special effects are good and J. looks great in her outfit but the song and dance is just like what we have been seeing. I’ll even give her video “Pleasure Principle” the nod over this one. And I still can’t take a honey out on the dance floor for this song. :booty:

  40. Im a dancer too DEL like i said this is a song u dance by yourself and be sexy with it at the same time. I like her style she alway come different with it. I love the video i love the dance moves. But i respect your opinion on pleasure principal that was a classic from her.

  41. sean2008, thanks for the article or breakdown. I wonder how many more times she could’ve said “Discipline” in the write-up. 😆 Janet FTW!

  42. To Del,

    If your’re a former dancer, please show me all of the dancing in the Alright video. I have every video compilation and have seen Alright too many times to count. I love the video, but there is not very much dancing in that video. Don’t get me wrong, it’s there, but Janet has a slew of other videos with more and better dancing. Maybe ur eyes see something that no one else sees, because that explanation my friend is totally off.

    Anyway, love the video. It’s new, fresh and different than any of the other videos out. Janet stands in a class all by herself.

  43. Why isn’t anyone complimenting janet’s voice? I thought she was a singer, not a dancer.

  44. HEY…HEY…. the video was Good…..too dark though..so you tend to have to get up close and watch it acouple times…but janet looks great..could barely see her dancers..but I agree with whomever said she should have been in red or even white so she did not blend so much into the background..but you know wat….she is my girl….and the mere fact that she is 41 and can move and look that good….hah…there are 19 year olds who can’t do what j..can do…she will do fine this year..great..well not sure…its not her music that makes it difficult for Janet..its the industry itself and VIACOM..who own Mtv.. and VH1 AND….BET…they don’t give her a fair shot…and the song is out now…FEEDBACK..i have not heard on radio yet..has anybody???? :confused: 🙄 I will buy the CD regardless cause Janet always has music on her CD’S that women can relate to an yall know it…. :thumbsup:

  45. If u think about it no matter what u always catch yourself paying attention to Janet and Micheal cause they’re just so talented! They may not be as strong as they were back in the day, but they’re still never just a big disappointment in entertaintainment. Nobody can never be the next micheal or janet, they made they’re mark in the world. Nobody can top their history and longevity! :dance1:

  46. OK B. Let me show you all the dancing in the “Alright” video:….(“Taking deep breath”)
    After reading Cab Calloway is coming to town J. steps up on to the park bench she’s sitting on backwards, steps back down in place, sits back down then up takes out a hanky flicks it around in sync with other dancers, dances to the next scene steps in place to do a “Hopscotch” with 2 young girls, walks through a bar pours coffee in a cup on que without spilling it, come back do a break down with Cyd Charisse, who was a famous dancer herself, go back let Heavy D.!! do his thang! Five year old steps in so cute gets a little camera time,step back into another move using the hanky turn and go right into a famous “Locking” routine, jump up and back down to the ground, snatch up hanky, meet the incredible Cab Calloway, dance to another spot and let the unstoppable Nicholas Brothers take over, step and slide 5 feet without falling down and busting her butt, dance to another spot, break it down by jumping on to the back of her heels several times, while twisting her ankles and body at the same time turning her body in two different directions before coming out of it, ending it all back at the same park bench…”whew!!!” taking deep breaths…now Ms. B., that’s a a video with her dancing. Oh by the way, did I mention you can actually hear her singing on the record? Plus she looks awesome in the video. She’s not showing any cleavage or wearing a skin tight catsuit, but still looks sexy! I urge everyone to go back and check out the video that Ms. B. and I are speaking of also the Jackson’s Family Honors performance that was taped in 95. Later Ms. B. :booty: 😆

  47. Del,

    Get one thing straight, I’m not a female. Secondly, I understand you want to point out every single movement in the video, that I already know. And I understand that her sublte movements in the video are dancing, but if you want to pick a video with more dancing to compare Feedback to, Alright isn’t it. The video actually show other people dancing more than Janet and you made that clear when you named everyone else who is in the video. U might as well have said When I think of You too, which is basically the prequel to Alright. They’re are soooo many other videos to pick, Miss You Much, Rhythm Nation, Escapade, IF, Together Again, I Get Lonely, Doesn’t Really Matter, All For You, All Nite (Don’t Stop), and So Excited. Now if you want to talk about performances, then that’s a different story. The performance of Alright has more dancing, but you just threw that in there to try to solidify your point because that wasn’t part of your original comment. But just so that this doesn’t go on and on with a lot of back and forth between us, there are people who will probably see it from both of our views and does it even really matter. All of her videos are great, in their own right! Just ENJOY and stop trying to compare Janet in 1990 to Janet in 2008. And hey, if you don’t like it, don’t watch or listen to it.

  48. GO B I AGREE WITH U 100% SHE DO MORE DANCING IN THOSE VIDEO. I STILL KNOW THE DANCE MOVE FROM THE IF VIDEO BELIEVE ME WHEN I STUDY THOSE MOVES IT WAS HARD BUT IT PAY OFF. JANET IS ONE OF THE BEST FEMALE OUT THERE CAN NOT HATE ON THAT.

  49. TO “B” AND DEL…TO SETTLE THIS..GO BACK A LIL FURTHER TO PLEASURE PRINCIBLE….ENOUGH SAID…THE WOMAN IS BAD…NO NEED TO DISECT HER TALENT AS A DANCER…..SHE IS AWSOME AS IS MICHAEL..LETS JUST BE APPRECIATIVE TO HAVE THEIR ERROR…AND MOVE ON… :thumbsup: 😀

  50. To Kim… Don’t know how I forgot to include that one. It’s one of my favorites. I guess I was thrown off a lil since it was included in Del’s first post. Ur right though!!!

  51. B. my bad, should not have assumed you were a female.lol..sorry dude! STILL! Ya asked me to show you all the moves and ya have them. You can best believe Im going to watch and listen to every one of her videos and you cant help but to compare, thats a given. Where’s the fun in not comparing? Ya just cant take it all too serious. Everyone has their favorites dawg. “Aliright” is mine with “Pleasure Principle coming in second. This video..dead last. Dude…”Serenity Now”,”Serenity Now”….gotcha Kim. 😎

  52. Yea it seems as if I’m in the minority…
    But my whole fam watched that vid 2gether and we were all like
    WHOMP WHOMP!!!!
    I felt it was boring… Nothing really xciting about the vid!!!
    And I feel if this wasnt Janet u guys would b saying “O lawd here’s another singer who can’t sing!!!
    Yea jus my OP!!!!!

  53. WELL MY FAMILY LOVED THE VIDEO THEY THOUGHT IT WAS VERY CREATIVE AND THEY SAY SHE LOOKS GREAT. BUT ANYWAYZ DIS AINT A FAMILY AFFAIR.LOL. CUZ NO ONE IS DOING VIDEOS LIKE JANET DOES IT. ITS FUNNY CUZ ALL THE VIDEOS THATS OUT THESE DAYS IS STR8 UP BORING AND DEF WASNT EXCITING.

    SO TO JANET :bowdown: :thumbsup: :banana: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

    Why the rude comments about Janet, She is holding down the problem with this comment is they’d probably want somebody poppin it and droppin it. Janet has class. As far as i’m concern if the younger singstress can’t hold their own then they need to move on. They are in a competative business. right so if Celine Dion can do it, Janet can do it much better.

  55. The comment on Janet is the bottom part only is what I responded! :dance:

  56. Janet, “Ms. Jackson”, you did your thing, I’m not at you!!!…

  57. All I can say is Ms J did the damm thang…….
    Haters Hate On,,,,,,, YOU WILL NEVER STILL HER GLORY……

    She is and always will be a DIVA FOR REAL…..
    youngladies,,,,,,please take notes….you dont have to show your flesh to do a good video or sing a good song…. :bowdown: :bowdown:

    WELCOME BACK MS. JACKSON :brownsista:

  58. I know one thing,,,,this is going to be a popular dance song,,,,,even if it is not played in all of our “BLACK CLUBS” she is still going to do some damage with this song. :bowdown:
    We need to support this Lady of Soul,,,,she is an inspiration for our younger girls to look up to.

    I loved this video
