THE REAL REASON I THINK JANET POSTPONED HER TOUR

It's mighty funny that Janet postponed her tour right after she didn't get into the rock and roll hall of fame. She is an icon with or without the rock and roll hall of fame, but I don't care what anyone says. I think Janet and/or her team thought she'd be Prince of 2004. Back in 2004, Prince appears with Beyonce at the Grammys, then he starts these other tv appearances followed by his Musicology album and tour along with Purple Rain's 20th anniversary and finally 2004 marked his first year of eligibility for the RRHOF and bam he gets inducted just in time to include the video at the beginning of his shows. I really think Janet thought she was getting the induction this year especially with the fan vote andshe was more and likley going to include it in her shows and was DISAPPOINTED about it. Remember she is her brother's sister. Michael LOVED his accolates and so does Janet. We'll see if her tour starts up again in the summer.

Surgery on the vocals my ass!

There was me thinking she paused her tour to eradicate her lunatic fanbase one by one with satellites equipped with Death Star technology. What a shame.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

See I thought the real reason she cancelled
was her Martian Overlord was making a surprise
inspection & she needed to get her house in order.
Maybe it is the hall of fame snub.
Who knows. lol

well the tour starts back up in march, also you saying she wanted a year like prince then you pointed out all the things prince did that year...grammys,tv performances, janet hasnt even done one print interview.the week her album came out she went on vacation and nobody heard a peep from her, she barely acknowledged the rrhof except to say thanks for the nomination, so basically your theory is pretty stupid imo.

I feel bad for her because it seems that she frequently has problems when she goes on tour.There was the vertigo problems on the 2008 tour,and now the vocal surgery issues on this tour.But hey,stuff happens.

I think she thought she was a shoo-in too especially with her being no 6 on the fan vote list and this year marks the 30th anniversary of Control. I just believe she thought this was her time for the RRHOF fame that's one of the reasons she stepped out of her hiatus.

And basically you're pretty stupid and a dumb ass too because the tour starts back in the summer if even then. Like I said before we'll see. It doesn't matter that she hasn't done any tv appearances. To her she's JANET JACKSON, she thought it was a sure bet with her name alone.

[Snip - luv4u] ... the RRHOF had nothing to do with the delay. The tour resumes in March with the Europe dates as she posted herself. No need for a reply back.

yes, this totally makes sense. in every interview she gave these last years she always pointed out she wanted to be in the RRHOF. It was her dream. It was all she ever talked about. Did you know the Great Forever is about the RRHOF?

I don't think all those so called health problems were legitmate problems IMHO. I am hoping that if she does in fact have a serious health problem this go round that she is recovering. I don't think its right to insist you have a health problem in order to cover up for something else. Thats not fair to fans.

all what so-called health problems? the only tour she ever cancelled for health problems was roc wit u. she did over 80 shows on the ucap tour.

do she need to die in order to somehow prove she's sick when she says she is?

Whatever I think it did. Why wasn't the tour postponed before Dec 17th. The day they announced the inductions. By the way glad you got snipped. lol

I see on USA TODAY it will resume in the spring which could be April or May, spring or summer like I said we'll see. She might be over the RRHOF by then.

I swear people are so stupid these days, pulling shit out of their asses just to say something, regardless of whether it's factually wrong or not. The second US leg of the tour was postponed on the 24th. And it wss postponed then, because she got told then, that she needs surgery. Why would one fake made up award make her loose money and postpone part of her tour?

Like I said, I am praying for Janet and I wish her all the best but I do think she could have told fans earlier that she was going to have surgery and not on Christmas eve when fans are excited that they are going to see Janet in another month. IMO, the reason why all those rumors started was because fans were worried because of the "seriousness" of the tweet not because media wanted to gossip about Janet. She definitly could have said something earlier if its really something serious. I am still confused with why she would need vocal surgery when she doesn't even sing live but I will refrain from judgement and wait and see.

janet is a singer regardless if you like her voice or not, thats what she does and has done for a living for over 30 years, she cannot perform if something is wrong with her throat. have you ever even been to a janet show?

Where did I say I hated her voice? I love Janet. I have all her albums, concerts, posters, costumes. the whole nine yard, etc and even got tickets to see her on her Unbreaklable Tour. I actually think she is a great singer. Me saying she doesn't sing live doesn't make me any less of a fan but thats the TRUTH. She doesn't sing live so imo Im confused with why she would need vocal surgery. I never said she was lying or it wasn't true.

Michael needed vocal cord surgery too and he was not singing much love that time or since then anymore either. Really didn't want to go there, but many artists have had it at some point or another. Janet is not exempt from it. And someone did say in an interview about unbreakable she was talking about her voice changing, maybe that was part of the problem she's having.

she's not the only artist who uses pre-recorded vocals, she dont stand on stage and play the cd she does mix live vocals. and even if she never sing live what does that have to do with her needing surgery on her throat? so if your dr. found something on your throat and said it needed to be removed would you not get it done since you are not a singer? last i check a person used their throat for more than just singing.

You're feeling upset there is a chance you might not see her and are worried, maybe it's an extension of what you felt from not seeing mj cause of them being related and it's coming out in anger. I could be way off but don't worry too much, I'm sure she'll be fine.

I don't like comparing MJ and Janet because it always leads to a stan war BUT since you brought him up shrug

Michael had legitmate health problems during the HIStory tour which is why majority of the tour is mimed..............However, Triumph (Off The Wall) Victory (Thriller), BAD, Dangerous (60/70 percent) were not mimed. Michael was/is known to sing live prior to his health problems. During the late 90's, is when Michael started miming excessively so I am not even sure why you used him as an example. Janet on the other hand has mimed majority of her career. She has never been known to be a live singer even during her prime and peak. I am not saying this to bash her but it is what it is. Also, I never said she was the ONLY artist that mimes. My point in mentioning it was not to bash her. I just found it strange she would need vocal surgery when she doesnt sing live, thats all and I know she has lied in the past about having health problems. I really don't care if she is making it up or not but Im tired of people making excuses for her questionable behavior like she is perfect when shes not. Just like how you turned around and tried to shade Michael but this is not even about him. I love Janet too but she is not perfect to me, just like how I love MJ and I realize he was not perfect..... but for some reason when it comes to Janet particularly people make excuses for her shady behavior but constantly turn around and trash on Michael, I will never understand it.....
