No More Albums From Janet???

Say it ain't so?!

Janet Jackson has revealed that she doesn't think she will be recording any more albums. Instead, she is thinking of concentrating on her acting career and maybe putting out some singles in between.

From what her ex-boyfriend, but still close friend and producer Jermaine Dupri says, her reasoning is that she feels LPs don't have the same impact as they once did. He explains:

"Last time I heard she really didn't want to do an album. She wanted to just do singles every once in a while. She's looked at the marketplace -albums are not really doing what they usually do when you put all this budget out there. Janet is just trying to figure out her landscape."

Alright, take some time to do your thing, but think of this - an album would certainly sell if ALL the songs were single worthy.

And if anyone could put that together….

Think about it!

    What a bummer…..Janet, say it ain't so!



  2. 2

    She is only saying this because her last few projects have flopped majorly. Get back with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Janet!



  3. 3

    She sings?



  4. 4

    never say never BITCH



  5. 5

    She is just saying that because her last four albums have FLOPPED.



  6. 6

    If we can get back the fun, flirty janet of the early nineties and early 00s I would be on board to buy new shit from her.
    I won't buy an album if its just more shit about having sex, giving blow jobs, etc. etc…



  7. 7

    I agree with her… the music industry is seriously jacked. A lot of albums "flopped" this past year. It aint what it used to be, thanks to all the music pirating.



  8. 8

    She should collaborate with the Pet Shop Boys!



  9. 9

    Her and Madonna, in one day saying 'no more'!
    Wow.

    Sorry Janet….I won't miss it. Ms. Madonna is FAR more creative! :)



  10. 10

    Just to add…..enough with anything Jackson please!



  11. 11

    i'm so sick of looking at everyone's big tits, stretched eyes, fake noses, filled in cheekbones. everyone looks like modern day vampires where are all the people with character in their faces?



  12. 12

    Ym Still yat. vym



  13. 13

    If she could actually make good songs then maybe we'd buy her album. DUH! Her last album had some good songs, but did you listen to the rest?? It was practically un-listen-able [is that a word? LOL] But don't do what Lady GaGa did, which is what Perez is suggesting, because the album gets really old [you know, annoying] REAL QUICK and then your forced to come out with a whole new album less than a year later, etc. etc.



  14. 14

    I'M SO SAD!!! JANET, NO!!!!!



  15. 15

    The industry is a bad off place right now for pop stars shes better off. Sad to say that but she is. We dont wanna see her be in a video that is nasty like these others. I think Janet needs to rest shes been through a lot in her life especially the past year. :/



  16. 16

    Re: backfire – wow. i was just thinking the EXACT same thing. I'm so burned out on big fake boobs, fake noses, and chemical injections.



  17. 17

    WHO CARES THAT B*TCH IS GETING OLD AND CANT SELL MUSIC ANYMORE…. NEXT!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm sorry, but those tits…



  19. 19

    Perez, you are so right on this!!! An album must be packed with single worthy songs to be successful, like MJ's "Thriller" or Prince's "1999", but sadly, however, Janet has released very poor albums over the last 15 years, plus…and it is only getting worse? I would suggest that she do a musical film, and release an album as its soundtrack–but it will not work without truly great songs and production, and Jermaine Dupri has all but destroyed Janet's career…systematically–and I suspect, purposefully so, out of jealousy, and fear, that she would leave him. Why she hasn't figured that out by now, is shocking???



  20. 20

    PS: Jermaine Dupri is not your friend, and has never been your friend. He is just a wolf that you let in the hen house–who is only there because you are considered to be very attractive and successful. In other words, he was only there for sex, and to put a trophy on his arm, and you fell for it, and continue to fall for it???



  21. 21

    shes s has been

    who cares



  22. 22

  25. 7tizz says – reply to this


    25

    Her music has been out of touch with what's going on in the pop world for over a decade now. It's about time she gave up on music.



  26. 26

    lol yeah too much stretching and injecting… she looks like a bratz doll on crystal meth.



  27. 27



  28. 28

    Well Ms Jackson… your still a Legend no matter what you decide to do… you have your loyal fans.



  29. 29

    No matter what Ms Jackson you do have your Loyal fans to support you through and through!



  30. 30

    come on janeeeeeeeeet!!



  31. 31

    there is a GOD!

    Janet hasn't made a good albm since All 4 You back in 2001 and aside from Feedback in 2008 hasn't had a good song either. She needs to go far away from JD, he destroyed her career and Rihanna and Ciara swept in to pick up the pieces. Unfortunately for Janet the Super Bowl got her off track and she'll probably never be right again. Damita Jo, 20 Y.O. and Discipline were all weak albums and showed little signs of the greatness that were Control, Rhythm Nation, Janet and the Velvet Rope..hell even All 4 You. Problem with Janet is that she's damaged goods and even her back catalog isn't really played on the radio. She was respected more as a "legend" back in 2000….now young people don't know much about her music career and former fans seems to forget about her. Such a waste, I think this is a terrible career move.



  33. 33

    She's right. As a matter of face, CDs are going to be obsolete. People are just downloading what they want to hear instead of spending money on a album with 2 good songs and the rest is caca.



  34. 34

    The everythign sounding like a "single" mentality is wrong too. The beauty of an album is that you fall in love with these other songs that you know would never get any radio play.



  35. 35

    If any star continuously puts out a best of CD time after time - is it any wonder that you would consider something else - and I'm a fan !



  36. 36

    She is smart. She doesn't make popular music anymore.



  37. 37

    "Janet is just trying to figure out her landscape."

    What's there to figure out??
    They look like a couple of big ol' mountains to me.



  38. 38

    Mainly because her albums SUCK. All she ever had was a few good singles.



  39. 39

    Re: jp1988 – "… even her back catalog isn't really played on the radio. She was respected more as a "legend" back in 2000….now young people don't know much about her music career and former fans seems to forget about her."
    Excellent point you made.



  40. 40

    Excuse me Miss Jackson, but your acting career ain't going anywhere either….



  41. 41

    She was good until she taking herself way too seriously. Her early albums were great from start to finish, but then she started to get too political (preachy) and sexual (which wasn't really convincing for her), and nearly every album from the 90s and beyond was ruined by the annoying interludes between each song, as well as the weight of her own self-indulgence. I'm pretty sure she can make some catchy singles again, but unfortunately pop music tends to be ageist and sexist as well, and the younger crowd that downloads singles as opposed to buying albums aren't appreciating a mid-40s woman dancing around in a video.



  42. 42

    No, JJ! Do NOT do this! :( :( :(



  43. 43

    Re: Zipocrite – I will have to agree. She needs to reunite with Jam and Lewis! I think Dupri ruined her career systematically. Well said!



  44. 44

    Janet had some of the besttttt pop and r&b music from like 86-01… but then the music went DOWNHILL… and she hasnt had a great song (in my opinion) in years… I think shes making the right decision… I still love her though!



  45. 45

    HIP HIP HOOOOOOOOOORAY! Hope I never have to see her on TV or on the radio ever again! Ugh!



  46. 46

    I wish the Jackson's would just crawl back under the rock they have been under for years. Michael was the only Jackson with talent the rest of them are just leeches!



  47. 47

    The world can make do with one less lip-syncer!
    Can she take Britney Spears and Madonna with her.



  48. 48

    Thank fuck for that, talentless in the extreme.

    I can see her point. Although she hasn't put out a great album in a very long time. Nothing like Control or Rhythm Nation. I would really love to see her have another successful single, something like All for You, which came out after what, a 5 year gap since her previous album. That song did very well and kind of brought her back into public consciousness again. Go Janet!



  50. 50

    i love janet jackson, but i cant say i blame her for not wanting to put out any more records. she hasnt had a hit in what, the last ten years or more. and artists arent making money anymore cuz of all you illegal bootleggers out there. the only people out there making music now are has beens who are loaded and dont care if they sell, or starving up and comers who live in their car and figure its better than nothing. or reality show winners who put out one record and then forgotten about…and susan boyle cuz her fanbase doesnt own a computer so her sales are legit.



  51. 51

    Thank god she came to her senses and realized her albums does have an IMPACT! lol Yes, she is not the same singer we all grew to love and it shows in her recent albums.



  52. 52

    Oh Janet, say it isn't so! Ok, the last one wasn't the greatest, but Damita Joe??????? Please, do it again, Janet.



  53. 53

    why make more when nobody buys them?

  54. @v@ says – reply to this


    54

    I see her points. I mean, point.



  55. 55

  56. 56

    acting career??



  57. 57

    creeeeeeeeeeepy picture much?



  58. 58

    Re: hamnip – Well considering that she's sold over 100 million albums, somebody is buying them!
