were these video links to The View and GMA dead on arrival or discovered and pulled? frustrating

Somehow the linkage off sets but if you click on the "watch on Youtube button" it takes you to where they are on Youtube and they play there. cool

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

So how do you guys feel about Tinashe and Jason D. tributing Janet? A lot of people are upset by it. I personally see no problem. I mean Mya, Usher, Pink, and Destiny's Child(including Beyonce) have done so in the past already. I want to see a whole new group of people tributing her. And rumor has it that Janet hand picked these three. There aren't to many artist out there today who can pull off Janet's moves. Ciara is the only one I can think of. But I welcome Tinashe because she still is very young and has time to grow. I wish people would stop judging and give her a chance. Then if she fucks up. Then we can talk. But I can not wait til Sunday!!!

Janet Jackson's legacy obviously reaches to current acts, and Tinashe is no exception.

Check out her sample of "Funny How Time Flies":

Ciara has been acknowleging Janet's influence from day one and I'm happy for her to be able to pay a tribute to her. I think Tinashe has potential. She sounds like she has a better/stronger voice than Ciara, but her routines aren't memorable. That may be a more of a reflection of her choreographers than her, but still.

-

Clueless to Jason Derulo involvement. I guess I'll reserve judgment on him.

-

I believe they could've had a more well rounded assemble to capture the various aspects of her recording career. Janet's reach went far beyond just a black audience. She was equally a Pop star as an R&B star. She influenced more than girls who love to dance. What about the boys? Chris Brown, Omarion, Usher, etc. I'm sure there's plenty more that could give a decent tribute than just the three names released. I wouldn't be surprised if Chris Brown didn't squeeze himself in the line up somehow.

The male artists aren't just Michael fans. I think sometimes they were bigger Janet biters but then stylized (thrown a fedora to wear) after Michael.

As long as Chris Brown is somewhere in there doing something I'm good.

And please Ciara doing this:

Yes! Yes! But since this is BET they are only gonna use Black artist. The MTV Icon show was prefect in my opinion because they had everybody who was anybody at the time there to salute Janet. So you had Britney S, Justin T, Christina A, and Jessica S. there to name a few. Then you had Aaliyah, Outkast, Missy, Usher, Maya, and Destiny's child. It was one of the best tribute shows I have ever seen. So BET has its work cut outfor it. And as you said Janet is just as much of a Pop Star as she is a R&B Star. She is both so its gonna be hard to please everyone. For someone like Tinashe who is fresh on the scene she has to nail it. She has a lot of haters especially with Complex calling her the next "Janet Jackson". She gotta bring it even more so then Ciara. Who everybody wants to see do this anyway.

JUST A LIL TID BIT FROM VANITY FAIR.....This song is getting legs smile

While newbies are always welcome, this week was dominated by the long-awaited return of Janet Jackson, who came back to show the younguns how it’s done. The Queen of Pop laid the groundwork for her comeback with “No Sleeep” posted above, and with a new record label, full-length album, and world tour in the works there’s no doubt that she’s back. The three “e”s in the song title are just one sign of how confident Jackson is about her place in the world of music. The song has her working with long-time producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis for the first time in almost a decade and is reminiscent of her The Velvet Rope sound, but wholly modern, too. It serves as a great reminder that even though she’s been gone for years, she’s still Janet—Miss Jackson if you’re nasty.

When the hell is Janet coming on??? pout

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Yeah I suffered through 3+ hours of bullshit just to see the Janet piece. The only other good performance that I was excited and surprised about was the Bad Boy 20 year anniversary performances. Other than that, the award show was disappointing.
I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.

Other than the good laugh I got when Diddy fell, I wasn't too thrilled with that either. Hell for that 3 and a half hours, they could have just let Smokey Robinson go through his whole catalog and I'd have been straight with it.

That Janet tribute was... neutral I feel she cheated her fans--why didnt she perform her new single No Sleeep? They started playing it after Ciara was done performing and when she came out, I thought she was gonna sing it but uh...she only accepted her award and then left. Seeing other people do her dance moves to her old hits was yawn Yeah she looked great, beautiful as always but I dont get why she didnt perform her new single. Even Smokey performed in his own tribute. Would have been great promotion for her new single and her upcoming album.

Yea I have to agree with this. I also think those dancers in the background that were dancing to her new single are her new dancers and its probably the choreography for the song. I felt like she purposely had them dance to make it "appear" like she was going to perform although of course she wasn't. Almost like "Yea you thought I was performing...sike" lol Performing her new single would have boosted her sales for her song. It also would have been great promotion as you mentioned for her new album and especially for her tour.

Janet's new touring dancers are ALL female. She just added males for the BET Awards, which she was suppose to perform @.
