She really does. Her discography has aged like sour milk. GP doesn't know a single one of her songs (not even in the US) and she is the only one of her peers (Whitney, Mariah and even so called streaming poison, Madonna) who isn't one of the 500 artists with the most monthy listeners. Heck , even Kylie Minogue does have a classic song a multiple songs with over 100 million of streams. In terms of relevancy, she is more similar to Paula Abdul.

They hate black artists. Just look at the discussions made about Prince with people calling him overrated :deadbanana2:

Prince IS overrated and he was a homphobe who hated gay people

Quote

“When asked about his perspective on social issues—gay marriage, abortion—Prince tapped his Bible and said, ‘God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.’”

he also said gays will burn in hell etc and a bunch of homophobic nonsense

Creep is not a well known classic like are you high or what's wrong with you

Their Oversized Shirts are one of their iconic looks. Creep is like one of their real breakout hits before waterfalls

Also referenced in modern song like Cardi B's Be careful

By the time she FINALLY hits 100 million with one of her songs, everybody else of her peers will have multiple songs over 200 or even 300 million :deadbanana4:

 

Even Cher will with two of her singles.

They're just delusional. Two entire generations don't know her music at all.

Well that's the current way to consume music yes, and it's not like she benefited from Digital sales either. How is her recurring airplay doing these days?

Nasty, Rhythm Nation, That’s the Way Love Goes, Together Again and All For You all seem like classics to me and I’m only 23

 

Janet’s streaming numbers only prove that the younger generations that primarily stream music don’t know her music, which is understandable considering her post-2004 blacklist 

 

That doesn’t mean she doesn’t have classics

Together Again is a classic in my heart :heart2:

So if attacking Janet Jackson wasn't bad enough, Prince and TLC are getting brought into this? Some of y'all need to find better things to do.

i mean yeah.

 

If people aren't streaming your songs then it means they aren't remembered. Also its not just spotify but youtube also. AM audience don't use female artists, no none of her peers are doing any better, so it is excusable. 

Her songs may be undeniable smashes in 80s and 90s but people aren't really listening to them in 10s and 20s.

No one is going to pretend like nipplegate didn't effect her relationship with the GP.  It did and now her songs are "less known" by younger gens.  That doesn't define a classic though.  In addition, new generations of musicians and artists are still being inspired by her.  So yes, she still has classics that are impactful.

Because her music is forgotten by the general public. That is not a knock on her; she has some of the best music out of everyone, but people don't really talk about her anymore.

Hi_im_new

Why do the fheguts on this site hate Janet so much? The years I perused this site, I’ve noticed she’s always been the most disrespected legend.
