What can I say other than, Janet is back! Let’s get the nitty gritty out the way first; the vid seemed a little too dark (which I’m hoping is due to the internet) and the special effects were a little hit and miss in places. Saying this, everything else was on-point – very on-point. Continuing the Jackson trend of being an innovator of the video form, Janet really stepped out of the box with this video’s concept and it really works. The choreography was great too – especially the dance break at the bridge and the part at the end. All in all, Janet brought her ‘A Game’ with this video – proving exactly why she should never be counted out. ‘Discipline’, Janet’s brand new album, hits stores February 26th.
OMG That was even hotter than I imagined, I can’t wait to see it in HQ on my iPod, the dance sections look hot and I loved the old school space movie theme, her outfit was fantastic. Janet blows every other musician today out of the water again with this video. JANET IS BACK!!
Can’t wait for the new album I copped every one yet and she never disappointed!
Oh and thanks for recording for us Sam! 😉
OMG!!!OMG!!!OMG!!! I AM REALLY NOT A BIG JANET JACKSON FAN, BUT I CAN NOT HATE, SHE BROUGHT IT THIS TIME AROUND, I REALLY LIKE THE SONG VERY, VERY MUCH!! I CAN ONLY THINK OF ONE OTHER ARTIST THAT COULD HAVE PUT A VIDEO SO FUTURISTIC LIKE THIS AND THAT IS THE KING OF POP “MICHAEL JACKSON”, I CAN NOT HATE ON THIS, JANET DID THE DAMN THING. THIS IS SO EUROPEON AND IT IS FRESH AND NEW AND WHAT IS HOT TODAY, BUT I HAVE NEVER SEEN A VIDEO SO DIFFERENT LIKE THIS, AND WHEN I THOUGHT THE VIDEO WAS FINISHED HERE COMES JANET POPPING UP OUT OF THE MILK OR WHAT EVER THAT IS OH THE DANCING IS OFF DA CHAIN!! JANET IS DEFINATELY BACK, LIKE I SAID I USUALLY HAVE NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT JANET, BUT ALL I CAN SAY IS HOT, HOT HOT VIDEO!! KEEP SMOKING THESE YOUNG’ENS JANET!!! JANET & MICHAEL THE ORIGINATOR AND INNOVATORS!!
Janet always has some of the hottest dance moves, but I still don’t like the song.
I knew, I knew, Janet is the originator of videos and Michael is to. I luv this video it goes very well with what is out today, it is very uk, europeon, i luv it, imma go look for me a red cat suit!! This is very different and that is what one will look for in videos is something new and differnt. Janet u worked this thang girl!! I am proud of you, and I know that your die hard fans are to. I can not stop watching it!!!
Rating 1 out of 10 (1 being the worst and 10 the best.)
This video gets a 6 (out of 10). It’s q****, yet interesting. Unfortunately, (if I didn’t already love the song,) this video (wouldn’t/) doesn’t make me become more attached to the song. It’s good, but definitely not great.
MISS JACKSON IS BACK IN A BIG, BIG, WAY, GO JANET!!!!!!!!!!
This video…..ehhh…..it does nothing for me.
9 out 10….What can I say!
It’s JANET! Get it Miss Jackson!
I like the song but the video is too wack. There are other things she could of done with the concept. it just seems a bit too cheesy.
Haters needs to be aware, this video is str8 fiyah!! I love it, if it was one of your favorite artist doing it would be like winning 400 million dollars we would not be able to stop yall from smiling, but I am sorry Janet did the damn thing on this, and I read where someone said that any one could have made this?? I don’t think so, yeah I do know one and his name is Michael Jackson Janet’s brother he is the only one that could put a video together like this. Janet was thinking ahead of her time. She was thinking on another planet, This is dope and yall can quit hating! I know that Janet fans are glad, hell Imma Janet fan now!! I will be picking that album February!!
sam your right the video is so dark. hopefully the hq is better. however i thought the video was ok. i expect it to be more dance and funk but it ok. but hey janet back in the game
Uuuuum,ok, so you get a hot song, and then you make a not so hot video. Those cheap ass foam planets she was crawling on…really? Then it literally looks like she jumped into a bowl of Space Age Lucky Charm cereal. Good dancing though..maybe I was expecting too much, but whatev.
F*** THE HATERS AS USUAL, JANET KEEP DOING YOUR THING, THE UK DIRECTOR DID HIS THING ONCE AGAIN, BASIC DIFFERENT THEN ALL THE BOOTY POPPING, C****** POPPING, LACEFRONT VIDEOS THAT IS OUT ON THE VIDEOS NOW, ITS TIME TO BRING BACK THE DANCE VIDEOS FOR THE CLUBS. DO IT GURLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
YYOOOOO F*** HATERS CUZ THIS S*** IS FIIRREEE!! THE DANCING, HER BODY, THAT RED JUMP SUIT WAS BOMB ON HER!!! I AM TOOO HYPE THAT JANET IS GOING SO HARD WITH THIS PROJECT AND THAT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE FEELING IT!! THE LABEL CHANGE WAS GREAT, SHE LOOKS GREAT AND I’M GETTING THE CD DAY ONE!!!!!!!!!!
GET IT JJJJAAANNNNEETTT!!!!
Less is sometimes better! The over the top special effects is distracting from the dancing or lack there of. It is a hot dance song sooo why not dance.
the video was ok but someone of you janet fan are overating it because it isn’t that hot. don’t get me wrong i’m janet fan but this isn’t her best work she can do better i know
This is ridiculas!!! in a good way. Janet thank you for bringing originality. The stupid people talkin about the video was ok. must can’t get enough of soulja boy or h*** designed videos. U mean to tell me that they really think it’s just ok. they must love beyonces simple videos or ciara copy cat videos. the best you got is there is not enough dancing go on with that because if this ain’t a tight original video. they can’t name a creative artist that has somthing better and does not include booty shorts. JANET did that!!!! 100 out of 10.
…Well, the video is quite disappointing.I mean, it’s OK, but not original.
It reminds me of “Oops I did it again” from Crazy Miss Spears( the whole space thing, the red jump suit)
Oh,and the effects look cheap.
Anyway, she’s killin’ it with her dancing!So, GO JANET!!
Love it. I really do
I f****** love the video. I agree that there are certain parts that needed more dancing and that some of it reminds me of a little Busta Rhymes/ Britney Spears with the special effects, but damn. Come on now. She brought it. The moves were on point. She brought her A game. This is the most creative R&B/Pop video out there that doesn’t include ass shaking, bootty shorts, and all that mess. She catches your attention without all that. I’m loving it. Gone girl, Miss Janet.
JANET KEEP DOING YOUR THING GIRL.
BRUSH THE HATERS OFF. GOT TO.
THIS IS HOW A FAN BROKE THE VIDEO DOWN..AND IT MAKES SENSE!
OK, here listen. It might seem “slow to you” because Saam doesn’t do complicated camera moves. You notice that the camera BARELY moves in this video. That’s because – as I said before – moving cameras make moving backgrounds. The fewer things that are moving on the screen, the easier it is to compress the image, because there are fewer pixels to “change” so you don’t have as blurry of a shot. Notice how often there are just quick cuts to a new angle and little if any rolling or tracking cameras. He’s a genius at new medium, and that’s why it will look really good in compressed form.
Second, the story. It’s not that hard. It’s Mario Galaxy meets Barbarella meets clash of Titans. Each of the Daft Punk androids rules one of the plants. Notice there are 9 people in the video. Counting Pluto, which I still do, how many planets are in our solar system? They are all climbing over their planets stalking each other. It’s a metaphor. Live with it.
Dancing = Battle.
They are fighting and Janet jumps down off of her planet into a place with a very viscous white fluid. Sure you can take the easy road to what it’s supposed to be, or just be more metaphorical and look at it as the soup in which the universe is formed. The breakdown is the final battle. They all fall in behind her, it’s about to go down.
Everyone’s planets start falling and crashing into the soup of life. Janet smashes (dances) until she breaks the last planet with her hand and all of the Daft Punk androids get sucked back into the soup of life. A new Janet is shot out of the soup – free of her constraints, free of her battle gear and begins to organize the spheres of light to her making – lining up the planets the way she wants them. When she gets them just right she thrusts the last one forward, releasing them in to the universe. Thousands of spheres that shoot out of the soup of life back into space.
She sees evil around her, decides to leave her planet behind to go and fight this evil and when she wins, she gets to create the Universe she wants to live in.
It’s so not complicated to me. [/quote]
Janet came through with this video & song. This video is HOT & she looks FANTASTIC!!!! I cannot wait till the 26th of February, because I will own a copy of her new CD.
The video only grabbed me from wen she is wearing the red outfit, she looked hot. Even the dancing in it were not on point at all. Wen I first heard the song I pictured it at a hot ass clubb and full on dancing. Very disapointed wit it. Not a good start Janet. She is gonna have to come harder then this if she wants to get back up there coz y’all know wat they say 3 strikes and u out. Damito jo flopped, 20 yrs old flopped Discipline better bring it .
p.s i luv janet just being straight up honest
remeber janet and michael did scream in space so the whole britney spears opps i did it again thing is dumb as hell. Janet been out for 35 years give her the respect she is entitled to. Janet rocks
THIS SONG IF FUCKN HOTTTT!!!!!!!!!
THE VIDEO IS FIRE ALSO!!!!!!
What I like best is that Janet DID NOT give any of us what WE THOUGHT the video should be about.
Isn’t that what being an innovator is about? But listen you can’t innovate without garnering hate!
Go Janet–the beg was a lil’ slow for my tastes but overall it was true art.
9 out of 10.
ONLY JANET COULD DELIVER LIKE THIS-I READ ALL THE COMMENTS BEFORE I WATHED THE VIDEO JUST TO SEE WHO WOULD HATE AND I WASNT SUPRISED BUT WHEN I SAW THAT DAMN VIDEO I COULDNT STOP JUMPIN AROUND YO-BEEN A FAN OF JANET SINCE I COULD WALK AND I SEE Y-THE WHOLE VIDEO HAD ME INTRIGUED TO SEE MORE AND AT THE END SHE KILLED THE SHYT!!!! SHE COULDVE DONE THE TYPICAL CLUB SCENE BUT THATS SO CLICHE AND DONE INTO THE GROUND SO MANY FUKKIN TIMES BUT THEN AGAIN MS JACKSON AND WHEN HAS SHE EVER DONE A REG VIDEO-THATS JUST LIKE HER TO STEP OUTSIDE THE BOX THO-HE LAST 2 CLUB JOINTS SHE CHOSE THE ABANDONED HOTEL SCENE AND SHE COMPLETELY ROCKED THAT SHYT. IM GLAD SHE CHOSE A DIFF LOOK AND IM JUST SO AMPED TO GET HER 10TH JOINTI HAVENT BEEN DISAPPOINTED YET.-I LOVE DAMITA JO 20 YO AND I KNOW IM GONNA LOVE DISCIPLINE. I STARTED CREATING A ROUTINE FOR THIS TRACK THE MINUTE I HEARD IT WHICH WAS THE 1ST DAY THIS SITE POSTED IT AND I HAVE LOVED IT EVER SINCE. THIS VIDEO MAKES ME LOVE IT THAT MUCH MORE-ITS JANET…..MS JACKSON IF U NASTY.
Janet wasn’t lying when she said ‘..thats why they all are hating,’ because everybody’s stans are going crazy LMAO.
Sorry… I’m just not feeling it. Love how good she looks. Love the dance break, but it’s too slow and doesn’t make me like the song like I hoped.
OK HATERS DID YOU NOT HEAR MISS JACKSON??? SHE SAID LIGHT SKIN, DARK SKIN, MY ASIAN PURSASIAN, I GOT THEM ALL THATS WHY THESE GIRLS HATE ME. STOP IT HATERS, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO HATE ABOUT. JANET HAS DONE THE DANCING IN THE CLUB THING, THIS IS WHY SHE IS A LEGEND BECAUSE SHE KNOWS HOW TO RAISE THE BAR, SHE KNOWS HOW TO DISCIPLINE IN A DIFFERENT WAY AND STYLE. YALL CAN CRAWL BACK TO YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST SITE AND VENT AND B****, BUT U CAN NOT DENY THE FACT THAT JANET BROUGHT IT THIS TIME AROUND. AS ONE SAID, SHE IS THE “FEMALE MICHAEL JACKSON”. TO THE PERSON THAT SAID YOU CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL THE SUMMMER COMES SO THAT YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST CAN EXECUTE; WELL JANET JUST EXECUTED U AND YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST, JANET IS THE EXECUTOR!!!

OK I’m a Janet fan and I love the song but the video sucks ass, it don’t go with the song and it’s weird, she doing the same thing she did with 20 YO that was a hot album but Call on Me was a weird ass video i didn’t even wanna watch it So Excited to good dancing but weird,
What’s with the dark ass video and the planets? loved the end in the red that was cool she was on point and looked cute, and the dance was good but the video won’t do well people will just flick even though the song is hot,
You stans need to chill the f*** out just cos someone doesn’t like something doesn’t mean there haters mayeb they are fans but don’t feel the video like me and as fans i have the right to say whether i like an artist or not
Didn’t like it at all. She should return to her previous producers who knew her style.
who cares if you did not like it, it is getting positive reviews from the media all around the world, don’t hate, that is why Janet wears the title called “LEGEND” AND “ICON” because she is not scared to take a risk!! Janet is doing something right because she is on every other artist fans tongue!! work Miss Jackson!!
i like the video … it was a lil abstract but it was cool … that lil bit at the end was cool..
The video is definately interesting and a lot different to what everyone else is doing at the moment and I think that’s the point. Janet hasn’t survived this long by biting other people’s style.
And even though I’ve been bumping to this in my car for over two weeks now and love it I still pine for the Janet who gave us That’s The Way Love Goes and Miss You Much but I guess she is in a different place right now and the industry is definately is!
Good Luck with the album JJ!
Man shut the hell up! Ya’ll always think somebody hating. some people liked it and others didn’t.
Melissa u need to shut up, 90% of the internet blogs are running polls on do you like Janet’s new video and results has been over whelming with yes!!! just google it for your self, it is fans of other artist that is feeling a bit jealous of “FEEDBACK” and the video. Don’t forget Janet owns the entertainment business the other artist are just renting it; now go do your research and learn Janet’s history in the music industry!! Janet Jackson is the “FEMALE MICHAEL JACKSON”
im very disappointed with this video i’ve like the track for sooo long and was not pleased with the video… so excited was such a better video and its not original… may i stress ms spears used this concept already in 2000 with the idea of bein on a planet and wearin a catsuit!!! yes both videos do differ however there are simularities
oh my god Shane …it’s Shane or SHAME??? your comment is SO ridiculous!!! 😀 because the two artists are in red clothes on a planet, one is copying the other!?!?! so Janet and Britney are copying Santa Claus when he comes on our ground… please, let me think you are more original, haters! the only reason haters don’t like this is because they want to love it but won’t say that! for its originality, its never-seen-before universe, its unique and abstract concept, after so many years, janet is innovator so applause! just applause!
LIKE I SAID, SOME PEOPLE LIKED IT AND OTHERS DIDN’T. I AM NOT HATING, BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE. I JUST DON’T LIKE THE VIDEO. SOME OF YA’LL WHO IS WORSHIPPING JANET BE THE FIRST ONES TO HATE ON SOMEBODY ELSE. SO PLEASE.
^^^^^agreed yall get over yourselves not everyone likes Janet and that’s the way it is get over it, welcome to the real world i like the single but the video is crap/weird and sucks ass in my opinion and that’s mine don’t like it, who gives a f*** it’s my opinion, i’ll be checking Janet’s album cos the sing it hot i’m not all about the videos anyway
whoops that’s suppose to say song not sing, see yall stans bug me with that haters b******* when someone says they don’t like something, grow the f*** up
TO THE LAST TWO POST, DON’T MAKE ME “DISCIPLINE” YOUR ASS!! THIS IS GOING TO BE THE VIDEO OF THE YEAR, MARK MY WERD!!! VIDEO OF THE YEAR WHILE YALL ARE HATING, JANET WAS INSPIRED BY HER BROTHERS THE JACKSON 5’S VIDEO “CAN YOU FEEL IT”, NOW GO GOOGLE AND DO YOUR RESEARCH, I GUESS THE JACKSON 5’S WERE COPYING BRITNEYALSO BACK IN 1972 WHEN THEY DID A SIMILIAR VIDEO USING THE SPACE THEME. HA, HA, JANET IS THE INNOVATOR AND THE ORIGINATOR, SHE JUST EXECUTED YOU AND YOUR LACE FRONT, POLE ROLLING FAVORITE ARTIST!! I HAVE GIVEN YOU MY “FEEDBACK”. “DO YA LIKE MY STYLE”??
^^^ what part of i don’t like the video don’t you understand? it don’t matter how it was inspired i don’t like it and that’s my opinion how can i be a hater when i have her albums you dumb ass real fans say what they like and don’t like and artist are not so stupid that they think their fans are gonna like everything they do, like i said welcome to the real world and let me say it one more time
THE SINGLE IS HOT BUT THE VIDEO IS CRAP if it does well good for Janet i ain’t got nothing but love for her but i ain’t feeling the video you got a problem with that go type some more s*** who gives a f*** some people will like it some won’t and there not haters her fans are entitled to their own opinion, the haters are the people how are down on Janet for no reason and feel like she can do nothing right and hate on her success and their wrong cos she’s talented, research the word hater damn fool
^^^^^^ DON’T EVEN BOTHER ARGUING WITH THESE IDIOTS. THEY OBVIOUSLY DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT WE MEAN.
Beyonce already killed Janet in 2006 when they came out about the same time. Janet don’t wanna get embarrassed again that’s why she’s coming out before Bey comes out. LMAO She knows the deal.
Janet sit your old ass down somewhere!
