Janet Jackson Talks New Album

Published: Tuesday 7th Dec 2010 by Sam

With Janet Jackson‘s public profile once again on the rise, there has been increasing calls for new material from the legendary singer. Speaking recently to the LA Times, the 44 year old icon opened up about her plans for her new album.

Find out what she had to say after the jump…

Via the LA Times:

Next up, time permitting, is a new album to work on during 2011. “I’ll just have to fit it in while on tour,” she says, stressing that her new project will not be looking backward or forward. Instead, she plans to stay in the moment.

“No rush, no deadlines, just create, see what I’m feeling, see where the music goes,” she says. “I want to see where I am in my life at that moment.”

Granted Ms. Jackson remains coy about the project, she appears to be getting off to a positive footing this go round. Despite turning in albums which were deserving of more success than they achieved, a consistent critique levelled against her newer material is that it has not been as “inspired” as the more message-driven hits of her heyday. Here’s hoping she finds a balance which satisfies her own artistic expression, as well as the record-buying public. (Although if she returns saying she just wanted to make “happy music”, I won’t be too pleased. For, that has been her promotional script, if you will, for the last 3 LP’s).

  9. SVN December 7, 2010

    I AGREE WITH SAM

    I love Janet, but if he gives us music like the last three albums, no new messages besides happiness and love then I’ll have to wash my hands with Ms. Jackson.

    Janet is being very SELFISH, well she has a right to express herself through her music what happened to making music for US, the fans you say you love so much Janet.

    I want a dance record about the bad economy.

    I want a dance record about how the media or republicans are treating Obama.

    I want a dance record about how proud you were that “we gave a damn and worked together” to put Obama in office.

    I want a dance record about how you have been hurting for the last 2 years.

    I want a dance record that puts DEF JAM in they place.

    I want a dance record that talks about our failing school system.

    I WANT TO MEET THAT JANET THAT TOLD ME IT WAS NOT ONLY COOL TO BE SOCIALLY ENGAGE, SHE LET US KNOW THAT IT WAS FUUUUUUUUUUUN.

  10. FUTURESTARdelux December 7, 2010

    I want her to do well but unless she comes with something fresh she will flop again.

    I want a Janet Jackson album that is a combination of Control, Rhythm Nation and janet. That would be the album of the century.

  16. royalkev December 7, 2010

    You know what Sam, you have drawn up a very reasonably fair analysis of the situation at hand. It just so happens to be for 1 of my top favs – ever, but I am in full agreement with you. I will acknowledge the truth when it’s spoken, both good and bad. I’m glad there was a balance and clear picture spelled out here. I have all the confidence in the world that Janet will produce music that is creative and original(she stay’s true to that). So, I’m quite certain if everyone is going right, you can rest assure Ms. Jackson will go left. Then have everyone going left the year after. So, I look forward to her new material and I’m sure it’ll be impressive. I just hope that one day some of her counterparts in the industry are given the same measurements for standards that should be met. I’m hoping that noone gets to get a pass for all of their shortcomings and limitations, when Janet doesn’t seem to.

  17. royalkev December 7, 2010

    @ SVN, Wow… If anyone can deliver that it’s JANET!

  18. BENJAMIN December 7, 2010

    That’s good. 2011 is gonna be a good year.

  19. Beyonce Owns Your Fav. December 7, 2010

    YAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!

    2011 is going to be f****** epic man. I feel bad for the lesser b****** who planned on coming out in 2011.

    Beyonce, Janet, Gaga, Britney. Now all we need is Madonna.

    and than we will really see who the REIGNING(meaning NOW) Queen of Pop is.

    Hopefully Janet goes a new direction from her last 3 albums. Her not being with Jermaine De Predator anymore may help since he was apart of the process for those albums.

  20. spunkypoop December 7, 2010

    ALERT!!!! ALERT!!!!! LADY GAGA, BEYONCE, BRTINEY, JANET and MADONNA are all coming back next year!!!!!! GET READYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!

    2011!!! is the beginning of the new era’s and great music is on the way. Stay tuned!!!

  21. Robier December 7, 2010

    SHE NEEDS TO BRING IT. LEAVE LIL UGLY JERMAINE DUPRI OUT OF THE PROJECT. KEEP DARKCHILD, GET JIMMY AND TERY LEWIS BACK

  22. nickalus Randle December 7, 2010

  23. spunkypoop December 7, 2010

    she needs a DANCE ALBUM like no other!! Drum and BAss! House and TECH! Underground and BRazilian! a DANCE album that will bring her back to the TOP!! we need producers like JJ and TL back, Will I am, Darkchild, Avila Brothers, Stargate and the Compound, Danja, and Dennis Ferrer. I want to see a hungry Fierce pissed off Janet!

  24. spunkypoop December 7, 2010

    oooh and a splash of RnB funk in there too!

  25. royalkev December 7, 2010

    ^No dance!…She should keep away from House and techno especially! I’d love her to work with Danja & Darkchild. JJ& Terry Lewis are welcomed back too.

  26. Mr.S** December 7, 2010

    Discipline was Amazing. loved it , so futuristic & so sexual. omg . Her worst album was 20 Y.O in my opinion. Damita Jo was relaxing so I didn’t include that

  27. Estarr December 7, 2010

    Whatever Janet. S*** just gon’ flop like the others.

  28. spunkypoop December 7, 2010

  29. Mariah4Life December 7, 2010

  30. spunkypoop December 7, 2010

    @MARIAH4LIFE I know u ain’t laughing at my comment for Janet singing. MARIAH can’t sing like she used to cherry pie. That girl sound like she got a carton of newport lites in her throat!! At least Janet sounds SOulful and melodic.

  31. jo December 7, 2010

Request the songs and buy the music! dont be on blogs talkin bout you cant wait for her to come back and the moment she does yal not buying! she doesnt need your opinions she needs her real fans to put her back on top!

  32. Nichole December 7, 2010

    *Yawn*

    Janet is washed up. Bye.

  33. Pam December 7, 2010

    If Janet doesn’t have anything to say she needs to give it up. like her but her talent r limited no shade at Ms. Jackson just the truth ur not 20 anymore

  34. KELENDRIA ROWLAND December 7, 2010

    @ spunkypoop

    STFU!

    The QUEEN of Dance (and DanceRnB) is Ms KELLY ROWLAND.

    Janet is more washed up than Paula Abdul.

  35. THAT PUM PUM JUICE December 7, 2010

    @FUTURESTARdelux

    Is that MADONNA in your profiel pic?

  36. theman December 7, 2010

    It funny how people call her albums flops, when they really just did’nt meet sales expectations for such a huge artists, or did they ?

    DaMita Jo’ 1x platinum Not a flop
    20 y.o. shipped Platinum
    Discipline shipped Gold

    These are decent/good numbers for someone that has had minimal airplay after the Superbowl fiasco. Her next album is gonna SMASH !!!

  37. theman December 7, 2010

    Also take into consideration the sales climate we are in now, no huge radio hits, being black balled from alot of high profile networks, she did pretty good to me, even her lowest numbers are better than some of todays artists greatest success with smash hits on the radio. How you like Janet now. Her last 3 albums were all good to me, they each had something that was classic Janet about them. Some bums are just here to hate but i guess thats their jobs.

  38. theman December 7, 2010

    Mariahs Christmas albums shyts on anything any female has out right now, she took it back with these vocals quit hating> she’s known for them. People wish that had 1 percent of Mariahs vocal ability.

  39. john December 7, 2010

    THANK GOD THEMAN…………FOR WHAT YOU SAY JANET IS ICON.CAN WAIT FOR NEW ALBUM AND THE TOUR……WORK IT GIRL LIKE THE SONG YOU NEED ME B-SIDE FROM MISS YOU MUSCH SINGLE…..GIVE US PURE FUNKY SOUND…LOVE YOU J!!!!

  40. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 7, 2010

    YESSSSSSSS! The Queen is coming back!

    I CANNOT WAIT for her new music. I think Discipline was so underrated, IMO!

    MS. JACKSON B******! 🙂

  41. KIM’S WORLD December 8, 2010

    i dont get why she is a flop!!! all her albums went Platinum except for one and that went gold and was #1 on the charts..hmmmm im guessin its hate… oh well Janet is an Icon and No one can top that!! …SORRY

  42. TheDimplePuppet December 8, 2010

    Janet Jackson has the 2nd most number #1’s on the billboard dance charts after Madonna and the 2nd most #1’s on the R&B charts after Aretha Franklin. Janet music is more universal and diverse than any other artist to ever grace this political incorrect racist music corporation. Janet’s a musical legend, please don’t underestimate the queen. The world calls this woman an icon and Janet simply reply to that with “Unfinished”. Your favs could never and will never out due Janet she isn’t *DEAD* yet. Now with that said Janet get your s*** together come 100% or just stay on vacation for the rest of your life with Sam.

  45. X,Y, “and Z” December 8, 2010

    I never tire of the comedy that is Janet Jackson fans trying to downplay or boost her poor sales as of late. Accept the harsh truth that her music career has been on life support for the better part of the decade and that at this point, ONLY her pressed stans are checking for her. Casual public? Not so much.

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!
