Janet Jackson’s Choreographer Responds To Fan Criticism

Published: Sunday 6th Feb 2011 by Sam

Despite kicking off to a great start, Janet Jackson‘s ‘Up, Close, & Personal Tour’ has attracted critique from a select sect of her fans.

Mainly based in the US, the group have voiced their displeasure with the apparent recycling of setlists and costumes on the trek from the singer’s 2008 ‘Rock Witchu Tour’.

Unimpressed, the tour’s lead choreographer (and Jackson’s close friend) Gil Duldulao today wrote an open letter to fans. Therein, he relayed his anger at fans who “can’t see the bigger picture” – one which sees this tour serve as a prelude to a new album, and thus creating way for a bigger full-on spectacle thereafter.

Check out the letter after the jump…

Dear fans,

Of course after the opening I was expecting lots of opinions. The initial talks of an up close and personal tour was janet’s feeling to how she did radio city music hall. She enjoyed herself being up close and in intimate settings and wanted to bring it to the fans. So this is why she is on this tour.

Why spend money on new everything when u have a show up and running and its an intimate setting? Its to celebrate her and her number one songs. Well why is it the same set list? I’m not a musician nor do I hear what her or the musical director is hearing. These songs seem to bleed and blend into each other. I’ve suggested some changes but yet again, I’m not a musician. Certain songs just work with each other. So if there were to be changes in future, then it will be added on to the set list where it fits well. Only a musician can understand that, yet we sit here and complain about a set list they heard…. I’m sorry….if there wasn’t a set list , there would be no concert.

Janet is on a good streak right now. Everything looks great. All she needs is prayers to make it through and do all shows, not grumbling cause ur not getting what you want. Have u taken to account what happened last tour? She got sick. Why not prayers instead of grumbling. Let her prove to the nay sayers that she is back, not sick and won’t get sick ever again and fulfill her duties. You don’t know what it takes to get something like this together. Be glad that faith is back from people in the touring world to put this up, because after those cancellations, u never know if they would trust her to tour again. So STOP it now! Let her ride this amazing ride, get in back with good graces, and then when she drops her album, then we r trusted in every way to give u the show u want! A big big show in every way. But because of last tour, I could see how the big heads r skeptical….”Will she make it through this year of performing ? Cancellations? Well fuck yall, pray for her. Support her. And love on her that we r on tour. A second chance. So that once all is done and dates fulfilled all across the world, then we have even more to do a big big tour. But of course, need an album and hits, then big tour….do u not ever see the big picture? I may not be what u want a choreographer to be or at times, maybe not approachable as u like me to be but this is me. This is how I am with my friends. But I’ve been here by her side through a lot a shit. She is in the good. She is on a great ride. Press, life, happy love. Things negative r dying down. Its all a process. But yet ur not satisfied and not thinking about the bigger picture and what was done in the past that we have to do certain things to do what we want in future or to make yall more happy. Relax and all I ask is u appreciate that she’s on tour, go support her and love on her in every city, and pray for her. With all this negativity is not gonna get u or her anywhere. Seriously. Think about the past, think where she’s at now and pray as she makes this world tour of number ones and expect big things in the future cause she fulfilled her commitments.

Yes I’m sure- I’m a dick for blocking people who got something to say. Just don’t come at me with some nonsense if u haven’t thought big picture or u don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes. Just appreciate and love on her at this time. She needs all of us and prayers, be glad she on tour and expect a bigger one after album drops. But this is what it is now. Her hits her up close and personal, no glitz and glam, just us enjoying her music. I don’t care what the hell I’m wearing on stage cause I love her and I really love her music. I enjoy performing it.

Get another perspective is all I ask and think bigger picture. Please. I may seem like a dick all the time cause I’m constantly trying to defend her. U weren’t there on the inside to know the struggle to be where she is at now. Some may thought she may never have another chance to tour again after last one and or even dumb ass super bowl. But we are here! And doing it. And proving we r here and not going away.

R u on this train with us? If not , then seriously get a refund. My girl does not need negative energy in that intimate of a setting

Much love- gil

Fans will be fans, ay.

For yours truly, it was as clear as the sky is blue that this tour was always going to be more about re-building her fanbase and, of course, her corporate relations. Indeed, I’d put good money on the dates having already been picked out before the apparent “vote for your city” gimmick was put in play (which, in light of all the sold out dates – is proving very smart). In any case, I commend her team; for, being an artist of Janet’s caliber, it’s great to see her team thinking and acting wisely to re-establish her brand.

Gil’s incessant reference to a new album further highlights that her camp clearly have their eye on the prize. From successful movies, to successful tours, to a (fingers crossed) successful album. It’s all popping off (again) for Ms. Jackson. In a big way. Why not enjoy it?

Your thoughts?

    Janet Jackson is her name!

  18. Mariah4Life February 6, 2011

    ^ Washed up is her game!

  19. KaVion February 6, 2011

    I’m sorry but how is the choreographer going to be upset with the FANS??
    You’re hear to pleast THEM. If they’re not happy with what they’re seeing, you need to make a change not tell them what they need to do. They came to see a certain show, so give it to them. This isn’t a good look for Janet.

  20. aalih26 February 6, 2011

    i don’t care if she did re-use some stuff ….. for me it’s an honor to see her perform live on stage not many Musical legend would give us this opportunity to see what made her the star that she is today……

    from Manila… we love you janet hope to see you here again real soon…

    (I saw her concert and she gave it her all…. stop hatin guys)

  21. The Truth February 6, 2011

    I care less about graphics and more about the music. As long as the graphics look nice I’m good.

  22. Lucas February 6, 2011

    I’m kinda sad for having complained haha But I’m happy, now. Gil is a good person and he was always there to support Janet. Props to him.

  23. IAMWHOIAM February 6, 2011

    His statement was extremely unprofessional. I would think Janet would be a little embarrassed.

  24. kelzrowland February 6, 2011

    I really dont have any more comments…I’ll just let the video play

    and the chips fall…

    (waiting until Britney unleashes havoc on the industry next month)

  25. Nichole February 6, 2011

    Actually, I take my comment back. The only true way of knowing if Janet gained her overall popularity back, is when her next album is released and she kicks off an arena tour.

  26. kelzrowland February 6, 2011

    On the real though when you are an artist of the caliber of Janet there are expectations…there is a standard for all of them…just like when Britney did the VMA’s and she was a mess…I said she was a mess..everyone knew it..you couldn’t blame the choreographer..or the audience…or the light guy..or say that Michael lipsync’s…Janet fans we need ACCOUNTABILITY,…

    Ms FLopson please take the stand

  27. Al February 6, 2011

    Gil is the same as Jermaine Dupri was. He’s an anchor taking down Janet’s career. She needs to get rid of that bald, geriatric, chain smoking, queen’s ass.

  28. Taylor swifts number 1 fan February 6, 2011

    Hahahahahahaha well looks like her fans dont just take any s*** she comes out with after all.. This is music to my ears.. welldone on her fans for standing up for whats right.. maybe next time, she’ll do better then, just take the p*** out of her fans, hard earned money!!!.
    Janet stop miming please. show your fans respect!!!
    Janet the puppet…. because just like a puppet, words dont come out her mouth!!!

  29. Mariah4Life February 6, 2011

    If it weren’t for Michael’s coattails, we would have never even heard of this “Janet” woman.

  30. TheSongWriter February 6, 2011

    Some of you really have no heart at all…U dnt even kno what this woman has been through. She basically had her career TAKEN from her after the Superbowl. One day she was on top of the world…the next the world was coming down on her. And FOR WHAT?! Let’s be real here…the way Janet was treated after that was wrong. And even tho ya’ll get on this site and say mean things about this woman…I still wouldn’t dare wish what happened to her on ur Favs..cuz it’s not right. So i dont care what ya’ll say..Ya’ll call her a flop…I call her a SURVIVOR…cuz she’s still here doing what she loves AFTER all she’s been through..so as ya’ll like to say…”YOUR FAVS COULD NEVER!!”

  31. GAVINLUVSBEYONCE February 6, 2011

    Queen Beyonce is coming to rule. All this foolishness stops now!

  32. kelzrowland February 6, 2011

    Dead @ taylorswift

    @mariah
    Janet is to Michael..as Solange is to Beyonce
    They need to put that on the SAT!

    Without these older siblings most of these flops wouldnt have gotten their foot in their door!

  33. GREG February 6, 2011

    GIl is out of his damn mind!!…As much money as Janet is charging to see her?? she needs to bring new s*** whether its a small tour or not….we are paying customers/fans and if janet doesnt get her s*** together everybody is going to walk away from her and not feel a thing because i know several people who have and their reasoning is because she isnt changing….noone wants to go to a concert and see the same costumes they saw 3 years ago…..she needs to get rid or GIL and stop with the recycled moves….its time for new blood…GIl your style has been seen before…time to step your game up too.

  34. KaVion February 6, 2011

    @TAYLOR SWIFTS IRRELEVANT ASS FAN
    Out of every stan in the world to come after a legend..
    It’s a TAYLOR SWIFT stan that’s always coming for JANET.
    Sit your ass down.
    Stop coming for Janet, she’s done more in her career than Taylor can even dream of.
    Hope Taylor doesn’t see this, she’ll probably write a song about it.
    I can see it now: “Heart Break Nation” or “Hand Me the Velvet Rope”
    She’s an oversensative young woman, who needs vocal lessons.
    I like her, but she’s no legend.

  35. WTFSTOP February 6, 2011

    I’m sorry but this guy is giving me JD teas. Always yapping about s*** that doesn’t concern him. Janet should’ve gave this stale ass choreographer the boot when she dropped JD at the dumpster. Gil is sooooooooooooo 2004. No one uses his moves! Other artists NEVER went out of their way to work with him as they did with Tina Landon! Please, STFU Gil and stop acting as if your Janet Jackson’s spokesperson!! If she wanted you to say something she would send a statement through her team, no through her stupid choreographer that is over 30 years old but acts like a teenage drama queen! The last thing you should be doing is attacking the fans! Janet would be nothing without her fans and she knows this. Janet knows that her fans aren’t pleased with her so she should take some things into consideration seeing as we’re the ones making her rich!!

  36. Taylor swifts number 1 fan February 6, 2011

    @KaVion I never said Taylor is a legend, nor have i mentioned her in this blog, but she does something janet doesnt do… which is sing live? you heard of SINGERS singng live? No? neither has janet hahahha
    Im not even a taylor stan, i happen to like her, but it not like i go around saying taylors better then every other artist. I accept she hasnt got a very good voice, but sorry charging people the amount she does and not singing live is taking advantage of fans

  37. Justtoohott4u February 6, 2011

    YOOOOO He put his foot in his mouth and it came back out his ass! Mess!

  38. KaVion February 6, 2011

    @TAYLOR SWIFTS IRRELEVANT ASS FAN
    Janet HAS sung live before, your acting like the woman has never sung live a day in her life. She’s still giving them a show though. They knew what they were getting before they came! Everyone knows, Janet’s about the dancing & entertainment, not the singing. She’s giving them her all, that’s all that matters.

  39. IREALLYDONTCARE February 6, 2011

    YALL ARE STUPID SHE DID SING LIVE IN THE CONCERT JUST BECAUSE SHE DOESNT OVER SING THE SONG AND PUT IN EXTRA ADLIBS DONT MEAN SHE’S NOT SINGING LIVE..THERE IS A SUCH THING AS SOUNDING JUST LIKE THE RECORD.OF COURSE SHE LIPSYNCS ON SONGS WITH MORE DANCING BUT THE BALLADS MID TEMPOS ARE SUNG LIVE AND SHE EVEN SINGS LIVE WITH THE UPTEMPOS WITH A BACKTRACK ..GIVE THE WOMAN SOME CREDIT SHE IS A LEGEND.SHE WORKS VERY HARD TO MANTAIN STAMINA IN TOUR TO DANCE AND SING AT THE SAME TIME SOMETHING ONLY HER AND MICHAEL CAN MASTER..

  40. Taylor swifts number 1 fan February 6, 2011

    @KaVion You say shes giving the fans a show.. then why arent they happy and instead are complaining?? It would seem shes not even getting the dancing right.

    I love how the guy uses this excuse. “and thus creating way for a bigger full-on spectacle thereafter”. Umm people have paid their money now, whats it to them if they do a more full on spectacle thereafter exactly? People have paid good money, they dont want money put in later do they, they’ll feel shortchanged.

  41. kevin February 6, 2011

    Dear Gil

    Shut the f*** up and just dance.

    With all my love

    Kevin

  42. kevin February 6, 2011

    To all the saysayers here:

    You cannot judge a show off of a few clips on YouTube. All this talk about how she’s not dancing and so forth is just nuts. Were you there? If you are not giving an opinion after actually attending one of these shows…you are merely speculating. Yes, some of the costumes may be similar to the Rock Wit U tour but she’s spending money to give fans a show that she couldn’t do a few years ago for whatever reason.

  43. Pam February 6, 2011

    Real Talk, dude, Janet’s been in the game for over 30 yrs she needs to branch out and do something new that’s you don’t remember from high school. Is she going to be 50 and still talking/ dancing about “Control , Black Cat, etc.

    As fans, we can have a opinion to what they think , I say they b/c I have never been a so call “fan” of hers. I’m into real live” music. But she can be entertaining at time. Ppl pay their money for her concerts, movies and cds . So, dude let the ppl speak and I’m sure ur “open letter to the fans” may turn ppl off, they are picking and choosing what they spend their money on. And if you or Janet are sensitive about what ppl say then u really don’t need to be on tour. Real Talk I’m going to see Sade and Prince in concert.

    Clearly I’m aware she’s doing something wrong, I’m just saying she IS putting on a show, it’s just not what they expected. Janet needs to make a change, but that doesn’t take away from her talent

  45. Peter February 6, 2011

    Janet Jackson is NOT interesting as she NEVER sings LIVE. FAKE and BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING!!!

  46. Pam February 6, 2011

    I’m sorry ppl “STOP CALLING JANET A LEGEND, SHE’S NOT” Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Rolling Stone, Prince, Temptations, Luther Vandross, Roberta Flack, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Beatles, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, John Lee Hooker Elton John, Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson and the list goes on and on and on these ppl are “LEGENDS” not “JANET” Is she standing up and singing “LIVE”? and until then………

  47. kelzrowland February 6, 2011

    more excuses…Gil if Janet is putting on this Big SHow later then she needs to charge Big SHow Prices later…and not now…the real way to do this was to do some free shows in Central Park or something..Her tickets are too damn High for this Bigger picture he is talking about…

    If anything this tour should have been phenomenal given its small size and production..she should have put the money she saved on a set and lighting (what she has looks cheap) and put it into a new choreographer, costume designer, and new props.

  48. Taylor swifts number 1 fan February 6, 2011

    @KaVion Yeah, The guys telling us what the fans need to do, when its them whos paid good money, they have everyright to an opinion on the matter. Yeah she has talent, Im just not quite sure, if she really cares about the fans a great deal, judging by the high prices of the tickets and the cheap sets.. and not singing live and the recyled stuff.. Im not the only one who doesnt have an high opinion of the tour.

  49. Telllikeitis February 6, 2011

    Seriously that letter was totally unprofessional! Wth responds to criticism of a fan? Does Gil not understand criticism is just an opinion. He is a very sad individual who needs to seek professional help. He should grow up! He is not helping Janet’s brand at all! You would think she would have better sense and tell him to shut the hell up! That man/girl is over 30 and he fixates on arguing back n forth with kids! Gil needs to cool it, someone who isn’t civilized is going to get pissed off at him for popping off at the mouth and treat him to a beat down much like the one he got at the donut shop

  50. KaVion February 6, 2011

    @TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN
    [I’ll change your name since you gave a decent comment lol]
    No, he shouldn’t be telling the fans what to think and instead he needs to make a change in what HE’S doing. Janet’s not in control of prices though, she’s making a huge comeback and her team knows the CAN have this insane prices because her fans will come no matter what. That’s like saying MJ didn’t care about his fans because of the price of the “This Is It” tour. I’m not even a huge Janet fan, in fact I haven’t liked her new music in years [excluding “Nothing”] but I’m still going to speak the truth and defend Janet when it needs to be done.

  51. kevin February 6, 2011

    In Gil’s defense, I don’t think he’s responding to the fans who actually paid money to see Janet. It’s obvious at this point in her career that if they went, they are diehard fans and would see her regardless. I think he is addressing naysayers on blogs like KelzRowland to be honest.

    And in pop music…Janet Jackson is a legend. I understand what you are saying Pam but not many of the artists you’ve mentioned have accomplished what she has. There is a difference between paying respects to old heads and giving credit where it’s due.

  52. Taylor swifts number 1 fan February 6, 2011

    @KaVion :O My first ever decent comment on grapejuice, if there was ever a moment to celebrate, this is it!!
    Okay fair enough, i take your point about the high prices, and hopfully her team will make a few changes, so that fans know that they have a voice in matters, that would go a long way with fans. ,

  53. KaVion February 6, 2011

    @TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN
    LMAO.Yeap. There you go, take it all in. We never know when you’ll make another one.
    Yes, they do need to make some changes. The fans need to be happy, or Janet might lose some.

  54. Taylor swifts number 1 fan February 6, 2011

    @KaVion Haha, yeh it could be in a few days, but much more likely to be a few months:)
    And, yeh Like with any artist, they’re nothing without their fans. So treat them well, and you’ll have thier support for life:)

  55. KaVion February 6, 2011

    @TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN
    Exactly, I love artists that go on ustream, talk to fans on twitter, and ask us what we want.
    Those artists deserve every ounce of success they get. They’re just as loyal to us as we are to them

  56. blacNYC February 6, 2011

    I’m a Janet fan but she is charging premium prices for the tickets. That last tour was not her best so it does not bode well for a repeat of that show. With so much at stake for her she should have had a new show. She is considered an Icon and at that level you never repeat a show. It’s simply not done by any superstar. With that said I’m going in NYC and hoping to be blown away as i really want her to get her groove back.

  57. X_POSED99 February 6, 2011

    Yaaawn, another britney like tour except janet is a better performer and lip syncer. Beyaawncee’s lip syncing mentor right here.

  58. KASEY JR. February 6, 2011

    I don’t think Janet should get rid of Gil but she needs to give up the same setlist with the same old routine. I mean, we’re paying 200+ dollars for the Rock Witchu Tour Part 2? Even Madonna switches it up every time she goes on tour.

  59. Ruben Carcamo February 6, 2011

    I luv Janet Jackson and she is working hard to make this the best tour she has ever done. Janet loves her fans and she wants to show the world what she couldn’t back in 2008 because of her illness. Let her do her thing and support her. She loves to perform and she really wanted to get back out there and see her fans again. It’s been a while since she has done it because she had been doing movies for the past 2 years and a half. Plus the set list is different because she is only performing her number ones. On the last tour she performed songs that were not singles on the radio like Discipline or Never Letchu Go. Also she performed songs from the pre-control days so it will be very different than the rock witchu tour. Lets just support our girl plus she is honoring 20 young people in each city for doing good things in their community. I mean she is just a great person and performer. Lets be there for her and make her the big star she deserves to be. Luv u J.

  60. Kelzrowland February 6, 2011

    She needs to get her a show in Vegas where she can perform these tired routines for a few years and ride out..

    Cuz this sh-t right here ain’t cuttin it

  61. JDJ************* February 6, 2011

    DAMN @KELZROWLAND …..B**** YOU AINT GOT NOTHING ELSE TO DO BUT SIT UP IN HERE BLOGGING THE SAME S*** …GET A F***** LIFE YOU INSECURE LOSER……………………Haha while you all are sitting here sippin your haterade, Janet is performing at sold out venues nd don’t give me any crap about them being theatres because 3 sold out shows time 4,000 seats in one city equals 12,000 for those who can’t count.

  62. chucky February 6, 2011

    Egypt…sorry wrong blog. Lets be Honest here we are all fans of musci so why must we always expect artist to please everyone as a artist (not famous and after reading blogs don’t really want to be anymore) why i can’t the artist just do what they feel. If you arent feeling it at the time doesn’t mean they aren’t give there 100% just the time the space and the job, the feeling of doing something for yourself that other can connect to. I encourage readers of music blogs to support art even thought its not what they want to see at that time. When you hear number ones tour up close and personal I think its safe to say that you are going to see a stripped down greatest hits tour. Dont waste your money to see something just to complain….just saying. Look fowared to seeing the show and the energy that she and her fans bring April. Peace and Blessing to alll.

  63. WTF! February 6, 2011

    WOW! Just f****** WOW!!!

    As a HUGE Janet fan I’m really embarrassing!! Janet should be embarrassed to have such an unprofessional person within her camp!!

    Janet would be NOTHING without her fans!! Why is her choreographer attacking us??? I don’t understand. This is so sad.

    and what is up with “F*** y’all and pray for her”????? He’s telling her fans to f*** off but under the same breath pray for Janet?? this guy is insane!!

    Janet, please fire this man!!!

    A legendary icon shouldn’t have such unprofessional and dramatic people in her camp!!!

  64. WTF! February 6, 2011

    Me and my gf couldn’t care what she sings on tour. It’s just going to be amazing to see her. I thought I’d never get this opportunity after her brother Michael passed because I thought she wouldn’t get over it and not tour again, but she is, so there you go. MICHAEL & JANET 4EVER!!!!!!! 🙂

  78. ThePleasurePrincipal February 6, 2011

    Gil, the fans aren’t complaining because a real fan doesn’t complain when one of their favorite artist comes to a venue near them. I find it so ridiculous that some of the people keep going into Janet’s posts when they “don’t like” her, but can’t even go to posts about their “favorite” because they know it’s too hard to defend their own celebrated celebrity.

    The people that talk s*** about Janet on this site almost everyday can chew on baby d****. And if you’re feeling guilty you should. Haters are more so confused fans than they are enemies. Janet will always be the relevant topic of conversation. I won’t even try to defend Janet anymore and school anyone on her current or past accomplishments in her 20+ year career.

    I’ve been a fan of Janet Jackson’s since I was 5 years old when I witnessed “The Pleasure Principle” video. Never will someone be greater in my eyes.

  80. Royalkev February 6, 2011

    I love Janet, but I don’t like Gil speaking on her behalf. He’s rude, unprofessional and lacks the tact needed in explaining anything Janet is doing. Janet is a person who is above all the gossip and hate. She exemplifies class and would never give any of this her attention. He’s working on the inside and is apart of her camp and anything that would need addressing should be and kept confidential! There’s not any need to air something out that is too personal, because that would only allow for things to get misconstrued. Yes, Janet is making up for her cancellations from the RWU tour. She was ill and it’s a blessing that she’s in great condition where she can perform in 35 cities and give her fans what she wasn’t able to before. His harsh words were very unnecessary and not to mention ridiculous! The fans make you! This applies to any artist. There are some people that are simply voicing their opinions – because they dislike something, that doesn’t mean it’s not valid. There’s a difference between constructive criticism and hate. You can read the comments here and tell the difference. Gil should never get so beside himself that he tell Janet supporters to get a refund if their not pleased. How dare he even feel so entitled. He even seem to be blaming Janet for the costume changes – he suggested that some be made, but he’s not a musician. He is talking to slick for my taste and I think Janet should let him go! Seriuosly! This is bad business. I could care less who thinks he’s a d*** and who he does respond well to. I admire Janet, the artist – not her choreographer! He’s so out of line. I’m sure Janet, has new music and alot of things on the table. That was what I expected, but let Janet handle her own business and give her fans what she wants to. For now on anything pertaining to her, I’d prefer to hear from the horses mouth!

    My feelings exactly, i am just so happy to see her back on stage again. i will go crazy if she releases another album soon! anyway bring on Radio City Music Hall…

  84. tae February 6, 2011

    Janet Don’t care who talks about her. She is laughing all the way to the bank

  85. JAQUI February 6, 2011

    UGH……………

    Look. Girl got a lot of criticism from a lot of fans, and for a good reason; many of us feel the tour is a watered down version of RWU tour and many of us thought she meant it when she said it’ll be a completely different show. Gil wrote a very humble letter asking for our understanding, and explained the situation to us. That’s all what happened.

    You people need to stop trying to make this bigger than it is. Gil did not attack us, neither did he want you to use his words against other members in order to blacklist and label them. You need to grow up and see it for what it is, instead of trying to generalize and dramatize the situation.

  86. Erin Austin February 6, 2011

    I think that Ms Jackson should be allowed to dp whatever her heart desires…No matter what!

    I’m looking forward to seeing her for the first time in concert…regardless of what she’s doing, it’ll be new to me

  87. T February 6, 2011

    Gil,

    Personally, I think you just gave ppl (critics) what they want to hear to light more flames to this nonsense criticism they are saying about Janet. Even though everything you said is TRUE, But Janet TRUE fans do not care how her set is nor what custom she is wearing or the dancers… The ppl on here who is being negative is not a TRUE Janet Jackson fan. Janet, Gil, Dancers, Musicians, and Janet entire Team keep your Head Up, Keep doing what you are doing… PPL will always judge no matter what you do… Take this in turn it Positive. Remember “We should never give up because if we have faith enough to ask God for a specific thing, we should stand on that same faith while we wait… You guys just keep praying for each other and everything will work out for the Best… Best wishes to you all and Gil I do commend you for standing up and being there for Janet continue too and Us TRUE fans will too. Love T. (Praying for You Guys)

  88. QH February 6, 2011

    I’ll say this, Janet Jackson isn’t the first major artist to do a shoestring budget tour, to reach more audiences and give them what they want. Prince (1990’s “he Nude Tour”), Kylie Minogue (1998’s “Intimate & Live,” 2009’s “For You, For Me Tour”), Mariah Carey (2009/2010’s “Angels Advocate Tour”), Madonna (1993’s “The Girlie Show”), and many more of their stature have done scaled back shows in their careers. Typically they are met with solid sales & good reviews, because it takes a back to basics approach. Not to be frank, but I know the Rock Witchu tour was not cheap to make, and if she wants to repackage some of her backing dancers outfits, and tweak hers a hair, so be it. As long as she rocks the stage, that’s all that matters. Clearly, people want to see her due to demand and the tickets solid sales. Also, while I advocate fans expressing themselves, Janet’s fan in the last decade have become notorious for their negativity, sheisty attitudes, and bandwagon mentalities. It isn’t about licking ass, but when nothing the woman does, I MEAN nothing pleases you, leave the good ship Janet Jackson & call it a day.

    JANET IS AMAZING.. JANET DANCERS ARE IMPORTANT TO HER BRAND.. SHE NEEDS TO GET FEMALE DANCERS WHO LOOK S*** AND MALE DANCERS THAT WOMEN AND MEN RESPECT..GIL DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THAT.. JANET’S DANCERS ARE TOO YOUNG FOR JANET… SEE BEYONCE DANCERS S*** AND MASCULINE.. AND JANET IS 40 SOMETHING AND HER DANCER ARE YOUNG KIDS.. GET ADULTS AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.. JANET WAS A ADULT ON AMERICAN IDOL AND THAT IS WHY WE LIKED HER…GIL, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT.

  92. lola February 6, 2011

    Okay how the hell is he going to use both the words d*** and prayers in his response to the fans who have complained? Also, who the hell is he to stick up for Janet or speak for her? If the fans don’t like what they see, they have every right to complain! I just hate arrogant and condescending people! Instead of thinking that you are right all of the time, take the constructive criticism and improve. We all aren’t perfect and can always improve on things, no matter how old we are! I’ve been saying this for a while, JANET IS OLD AND WASHED UP! Every single performance we’ve seen from her after her “All For You” days have sucked. Janet’s moves are so stiff, repetitive, and tired. And, she wears the same damn thing she wore over 20 years ago. I am sick and tired of her delusional and retarded ass stans on blogs always getting mad and verbally attacking people for pointing this out! She’s had three albums flop back to back, her dance moves are lame, she doesn’t sing live, and she just doesn’t have IT anymore. Britney’s fans, especially in Australia even complained about how horrible live she was in her… I think it was the ‘Circus” tour. So, just goes to show you, no matter how legendary you are, your fans will know when you suck.

    And FYI to the Janet stans, the reason why Janet’s SMALL tour and revenues were in demand is because people wanted to see her because of her status. They ignore the horrible performances that’s she been giving the public for years and expect amazement, but don’t get it.

  93. ThePleasurePrincipal February 6, 2011

    @KelzRowland, Why are you still spitting on my d***? I told you I was done with you. I’m twisted in the head? Me? Oh. You’re the one claiming Kelly Rowland is better than (insert ANY artist here). You are really delusional. You just called Janet Jackson a has-been… and then you’re going to watch old Christina Aguilera footage? LOL. Are you serious? You keep referring to Janet Jackson as a flop but you fail to realize that Janet Jackson, in 2010, starred in two motion pictures (see Why Did I Get Married Too? / For Colored Girls), dropped a her #1s album (Number Ones), claimed another hit (Make Me) and goes into 2011 with Oscar buzz on motion picture single (Nothing), an upcoming book (True You), a very successful sold tour and a possible album? No, you’re wasting your time. Why aren’t you in the Kelly Rowland category? Get the f*** off Janet pierced c***.

    *What has Kelly Rowland done in the past 2 years besides flop?*
    (Don’t worry I’ll wait…)

    @JDJ & BEYONCE QUEEN :::: lmfaoooooooooooooo like really!!!? … okay okay okay, I’m DONE…everyone is entitled to their own opinion who am I to judge? lol smh…. but I love Janet, she’s an amazing performer to me and Im just happy that im going to her concert for the 1st time…and I wasn’t try to knock beyonce off too much (I did say the chick can sing did I !? lol) but its just certain celebs you don’t compare other celebs to… For example, you’ll never compare MJ to chris brown or usher even tho they following in his steps…that’s just down right crazy and insane…I think everyone who is reading this or thinking the same way you guys are thinking, that everyone has their own style…you can’t compare janet to beyonce because Janet first of all is an ICON & Legend…I think her icon & legend award can prove for that…who knows..maybe beyonce will get one of those one day…but she hasn’t yet…beyonce has her own style and janet has her own style and their own individual styles seems to work for them..so don’t compare…and saying that she a “has been”…in your view thats what you may believe but in the other billion people that still loves her will think other wise…HAS BEEN’S DON’T SELL OUT SHOWS….(do you that her concert tix sales in LA sold out in less than 10 mins!!??) lol…..Also her tix wasn’t cheap either …they were a pretty penny and they still sold out! Now what you can say is “JANET WILL PASS THE TORCH DOWN TO BEYONCE” or any other artist that is inspired or influence by Ms. Jackson herself…I think thats a better way to put it!! ..Beyonce said it her self… “Michael Jackson & Janet Jackson are my huge influences THEY THE REASON WHY i do music…I love Madonna, Anita Baker, Tina Turner, Prince, Aaliyah, Luther Vandross, Mariah Carey, Diana Ross and Mary J Blige”

    Gil needs to relax…

    the comment of “get of refund” kills me. Now i got half a mind to do just that. DON”T act as if you don’t need US.. cuzz u DO..

    I don’t know what was said and who said what but keisha needs to know her place and stop trippin. a letter like this will put alot of ppl on the defensive. Not saying it would or should happen but what if everyone take Gil up on the offer. N got a refund. His punk ass would be sick. I know its hard to have nay sayers but move on. Ppl arent really trippin about her. Its his weak ass he is defending.

    hey gil JJ don’t need prayer. but U MIGHT.. Dumbass.. Missmewiththisbullshit.

    Shawnette’s dumbass did this same sorta thing. Its annoying its okay to be loyal but know when to take a stand.

  98. janice February 7, 2011

    I am JJ fan and am quite irritating by this letter. I don’t know who is critizing JJ and this tour but must be a small amount of ppl. Becuz I haven’t seen or heard anything bad about it.

    I get gil is her friend but I refuse to be okay with someone that works with and for her to be side eyed. Its offensive. Ordinarily I stick up for Gil but I must say I am annoyed by this letter. Just because a few small minded few has offended u doesn’t give u privy to try and alieniate everyone.

    I have seen this before with Janet and ppl that works for her. It is beyone obnoxious and it puts a bad taste in my mouth because I know alot of ppl that love and admire her. Those that don’t like her should be simply ignored. Or unacknowledged. Cuzz I am sitting here simply offended by his statement. Or I need to know what/who brought this on. Cuzz I paid good money to see her and WAS looking forward to it. But if I should “get a refund” i wanna know WHY?!

  99. LoveMeSomeJanet February 7, 2011

    at the end of the day Gil was out of line for the letter. Although it was written to inform and get others together, the only thing it did was bring more negative attention to the situation. Gil know your place as the Choreographer and do just that; Choreograph. Grant it, you may be very close to Janet and you may have been there thru her ruff times, but you are not her publicist , and you should NOT be speaking up for her enitre camp. These are your personal feelings and should have been kept in a personal setting, not aired online for all to read. People are going to talk about Janet as they have been doing her ENTIRE life. We all get negative comments said about us behind our backs and occasionally to our faces, but it is up to you to be an ADULT and know when to stand up to disrespect and when to ignore IGNORANCE. Not everyone is going to like the show, who cares, you win some and you lose some, take the criticism, weed out the hate, learn from it and move on to this BIGGER PICTURE you profess so much about.

  100. niya February 7, 2011

    U know what…ok so Gil may have been out of line to some of you but come on, he is right! I’m sick of all these haters always having negative crap to say about Janet. The woman is 44 years old and looks damn good at it and moves perfectly. Beyonce and Brittney Spears are the first names that come out of all the haters mouth but just remember this when your giving them all this credit that they don’t really deserve…Janet not only made music history but she’s made a difference in so many lives. She has made songs about issues from racism to spouse abuse, love, happiness, homophobia and even the importance of education! Now tell me where beyonce or brittney have made kids want to go back to school and do better in life! Yes, they’re great performers but at the end of the day the message is always the same, party or wanting a man. Janet has always been about variety! She has a different album for a different emotion and situation. I absolutely love that. Not many artist can do that. I don’t care about the negative comments and if you can’t stand her that much then why are you so concerned with taking time to talk about her. Don’t you have a life to live? It doesn’t seem that way. Gil is just feeling the same way a lot of us Janet fans are. Maybe he could’ve approached the situation differently but he did what he thought was right and needed to be done. If it just bothers you that much and you can no longer go about your day because of this then oh well! At the end of the day Janet is going to do her thing and put on a fabulous show like she has always done!! This woman has battled and overcome depression so I’m pretty sure that a couple of haters such as some of yourselves aren’t going to kill her spirit. For every hater she has there is a bunch of fans backing her up so haters do us all a favor and GTFO! Thank You 🙂 <3

    I agree with you NIYA…well said! =)

  102. janice February 7, 2011

    umm question for niya?? I dont disagree with what u are saying but I have to ask u.. Who are these ppl that are critizing her so much. I mean are they the same ppl that have expressed thier dislike for janet and some obnoxious way as we see here all the time.

    Those ppl arent even warranted a glance let alone a letter. I don’t get it. Some jj fans feel like those even close to jj can conduct themselves in whatever manner and we *supporters* should just agree becuz.. *they may know janet*

    I don’t know of any such “hater” that would be warranted my attention. Or Gil. But i digress. I am not disagreeing with u. But I feel like this whole protecting janet thing is a waste of time and redundant. I feel like those that want to see her will and enjoy it anyway. Its distasteful to me how GIl handled this.. Completely distasteful. Even if u/him thinks he is shedding some good light in defending her. He doesn’t have to. She is who she is and no one can take that away.

  103. MJfan February 7, 2011

    has anyone thought that maybe Janet is preoccupied with important issues right now. Janet and her family are still involved with the aftermath of MJ’s death. I know work is all Janet knows, but honestly she should take a break and take some time for herself.

    Personally, I rather have Janet the actress than Janet the singer.

    Let’s be honest, MJ was the only real creative member of the Jackson family. Creativity wasn’t hard for him,because he was an artist, whereas Janet a performer. So most likely, she has other people bringing the ideas into fuition.

  104. ~Troy February 7, 2011

    Are “We” THIS Serious About The Lives of Celebrities?
    I’ve been to Jan concerts only nine(?) times but I did not attend the previous one. I’ve been in Jan’s dressing room with her, been backstage four times and to the 96 Billboard awards as a guest. I’ve met Gil, Tina, Rene, Tish, Omar, Shawnette, Nikki, Kelly, Tice and others. Guess what(?) …Janet Jackson has been my favorite artist since the transition from acting to the first album (Janet Jackson -1982). I know she’s not a celebrated vocalist. I don’t need to know what she’s doing every “minute” of the day nor what her family is up to. What I do care about is that Janet Jackson exudes a “pheromonic” call for respect that’s deeper than the socially conditioned, materialistic and shallow garbage too many youth grow up thinking is beneficial or even mandatory to life.

    **There have been great concerts …where I’d wondered if another celeb was in the crowd …causing Jan to dance grooves into the stage floor …BEYOND her usual “blow the roof off moves”.
    *I’d only had a mild complaint once …many years ago. It seemed Jan was just going through the motions on stage but you know, who doesn’t have a bad day? …a bad week, month, life?

    I WILL SAY THIS, too many people are concerned with (even arguing about) what celebrities do and which celebrities are “better” than another. * ** My take (and fact) is they do a job the same as we do (at least some of us). Some are the same as the neighborly man or woman who lives down the street. Jobs of the famous just put them in front of the camera …in public eye. Being famous is not always the easy life or the dream “we” think it to be. Often (as with us) celebrities take chances with projects and never truly know when they will need to find something else to do …just as we sometimes have to do. Just as in our lives, the decisions they make in life are not going to please everyone. Nothing is guaranteed.

    Meanwhile, in the end, the diligence, sometimes sacrifice and tears of a celeb has put money into THEIR bank accounts …NOT OURS …yet “we” feel we have the right to complain. *Gil may not be my favorite Jan choreographer but hear this, he works his ass off and gets the job done well enough to be where he is today …as have others before him.

    I Wholeheartedly Agree With Gil.
    ***To those who admire Jan (or any celebrity) as an artist and have patience for the future to unfold …KUDOS (just don’t allow the life of a celebrity to consume your lives).
    **To those with complaints and not a thought of your own nor a “pot to p!ss in” …get off the train and get a life of your own.

  105. jason romero February 7, 2011

    The problem is that concert tickets are majorly expensive these days and if I saw her last tour and this one is very similar, then there is no way I would spend all that money on something I already saw.

    Old people recycling Old things. Shocking! Janet just doesn’t get it and neither does Gil. As long as Gil is involved Janet will flop. He may be her friend but creatively they don’t mesh together well. It’s like Janet and JD… The magic just isn’t there. The Jackson Legacy died with Michael.

  109. Jessica February 8, 2011

    okay peeps its over lmfaoooo…this thing is a couple of days old now! lol…lets move on…bottom line is that everyone is opinionated and everyone is entitled to their opinions..In my opinion I think Janet is still awesome regardless of what others may think, but that’s just me..other’s on here may think the opposite or that her time is up…the world will never agree on the same thing so lets just get that in our minds; but their is no doubt about it that Janet is a legend. I think the world may agree, even the ones who believes that Janet is “washed-up” is a ICON…in all courtesy lets just give this lady and her family respect, if you have a negative thing to say then keep to your self or do what everyone is else is doing nowadays and right in a book! lol … don’t air it all out on these boards because trust me, you may not know; but celebs do read blogs about them just to see what their fans or outside people are thinking and saying about them. Obviously this family is still in grieving and recuperating over their brother’s/son’s/uncle’s/son’s death , last thing this family needs is someone bringing them down about whatever. It’s bad even enough they are getting it from this cruel media & tabloid junkies! lets be bigger people and just support them because they need it! I know that we only talking about Janet but she is still a JACKSON and we are talking bad about someone’s aunt,daughter, and sister. So i’ll just ask in the right way (since her choreographer had a more blunt way of saying it) to just show respect! If you not going to her show because of whatever matters then just leave it at that. We don’t need to know why! lol… but for those who are going then good for you as well. I will be there as well!

  110. innocent2811 February 8, 2011

    lol, really janet haters are so funny. The things they say which for them are meant to hurt our miss janet if you are nasty and us the fans only crack us up. And i have seen that these hater’s never take a rest, its like they are always reading and commenting more about everything janet does than any number one fan of miss jackson. Really you guys are simply sacred that over the years she has been better than your favorites and as years go by she only seem’s to still be in control and’s really worrying you. So what do you do? You call her names and the most interesting one is UN-TALENTED! If only you all knew how much you make me laugh, hahaha janet is a strong woman and the nasty mindless things you say can never get to her because you people only say lies. And really if janet is as bad as you say, who is better? Some one who is still learning and growing up and is still copying around? Music did not start in 2000 people. Get a life and only have time for your precious copy cats. And if they are as good as you say, i doubt if you would even be having time to by a janets ticket in the first place. Stick to them and leave janet alone if she does impress you. Un-talented as you call her just look at how lucky she is, where she is and how much she has with her not been talented. Certainly so much more, so much better than your favorite girl who is so talented. And one more thing, janet ant where she is because of michael, if so why did things not work out just as good for the rest of the family members that tried a solo singing? Janet is whats up and what has always been and hater’s are trying to change that with blanks. Get a life. Janet you go girl. Can’t wait for the album to drop. Best female pop dancer:/performer till today. Greetings from africa. Zambia. Hahaha

  112. Troy February 9, 2011

    Let me clear a few things up with all these young absent minded-gay ass beYAWNcy fans: beYAWNcy is what you call a puppet, an industry and attention w****. People suck her balls all the time calling her hard working – when in fact Janet Jackson is an Iconic figure in American Popular music, and has been around for 3 plus decades, acting, dancing, singing and performing. She has never, ever rode Michaels coat tail by any means. If you go back and look at old footage when she was just 6 years old playing Mae West and had the hearts of America with her sassy impersonation of the iconic figure, people took notice. In fact, she started off in the entainment industry at a much younger age than Micheal. Her dancing is more urban hip hop and Michaels is more pop locking/break. Her music comes in variations, just as her brothers and other artist who dare to have a cd with rock/pop/soul R&B – it shows artistry. There is no doubt that she has made her mark in the music industry and because music has changed and artist are out to make a quick buck for a quick f*** ala’ beYAWNcy – Miss Jackson has built the house that Ciara, beYAWNcy, Britney live in. If it were not for Miss Jackson, no one would have ever heard of these other chics. I must add also that the only reason beYAWNcy has a record deal is because of her swindling/corupt daddy. She ranked no. 12 behind Cher and other artist of the past in concert tickets sells and the reason she toured so hard was because of cd sells where she had to recoup monies lost in promoting …I Am Sausage Fierce, as well as Birthday two cd’s that had to be rereleased in order to make platinum status. Again, if it where not for her daddy she would be looking for a new record label like yesterday. It takes a lot of wheeling and dealing in Hollywood among sexual favors to make it in the business and with the likes of Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle, they have all gone on record to say the business is not about the music anymore it’s about popularity, youth and making a quick buck for these artist of today. Miss Jackson doesn’t have to tour or record another cd in her life because she is well over 150 Million plus dollars as a solo artist alone. she didn’t hatch out of a girl group, she started off as a solo performer. She does the music because she wants to, she does concerts because she wants to, not because she has too….and this tour “Up Close and Personal” may have scaled back a bit, and like the choreographer said, why go all out if she doesn’t have too. The fans, true fans come to see the Legend, and Icon – Miss Jackson. True fans love her for her music, not the dramatics, the lights and the theatrics, they came to see Janet dance and sing…and if she never performs ever again, she will be known for her dancing, because there is no other female out that has outshined her, not even britney, j-lo…and even though she will always be attached to Michael, well that is her brother, but by no means where they ever comparable in dance because Janets moves and Michaels moves where totally different, accept on their scream video with is Legendary. So to all these young faggoty b****** trying to slight her, go crawl on beYAWNcys industry used cooch and lay off Miss Jackson – She is Legendary, Iconic and has gone down in History while beYAWNcy is still sucking d*** and struggling trying to prove that she is worthy of half of what Miss Jackson is. We love you Janet, and see you in March…can’t wait.

    lmfaooooooo @Troy::: Well said! lol smh…it was funny but you spoke the truth…. you said “sausage fierce” …but i understood what you meant =D lol… I’m going to see her on the 19th of March, I can’t wait! =)

  114. Violet February 12, 2011

    Wow what is he like 5. People make comments about every celeb who cares. Especially big stars. Their fans do the most complaining but No one should address fans like this unless it is the artist themselves or the publicist. This is really not a good look.

  115. Chase February 12, 2011

    I absolutely LOVE Janet, but I must say as someone who supports her world tours I expected a better production value of her set design and costumes. Some of the costumes have been reused from the Rockwitchu Tour. I think that the easy change she could make to the tour is new costumes and a few adds in on the stage design to give the stage a more grand design and modern appearance. I mean your a worth $200 million, spend a little, geesh!! Stop listening to Gil and others who manage the tour and clearly wanted to hit the round to make the money quick, dancers need jobs, so Gil of course won’t complain. I’ll definitely be supporting the tour when she arrives her in the states but I just really feel that she should change up the tour outfits and enhance the stage design, since fans here have seen the Rockhwitch Tour a few years ago. The show she has for overseas works for over there but she needs uprgrade it when she get here. Just an honest opinion, I still love my girl JANET!! You look good! Can’t wait to see you here in the states, and I’m picking up your book TRUE YOU on Tuesday, Feburary 15! I just bought another copy of Janet Number Ones yesterday for my house! I have one in my car already! LOL : ) – Chase

  116. Shanae February 12, 2011

    Everyone is fighting over what! Janet being a legend? Oh please when was that made official. Janet is finished! She is forgotten already. Give credit where it is due. She can dance but is an average singer and lipsinc all the time. Can’t the blind fans see? Men lie, women lie but numbers don’t. How many albums did Janet produced and how many certifications she has in 27 yrs. Not much! Beyonce has been her for 12 yrs with 3 albums and has leading certifications of 64 and more to come and crown queen of pop from billboard and accomplished 5X more than what Janet did in 27 yrs. I compare her to Beyonce because Beyonce is the only artist on her way to being legendary until official. She has received about six legendary award including International artist of excellence, only artist after MJ. Why didn’t Janet get it? including the others? Some people are just in Denial.
    BTW: WHEN YOU HAVE DONE YOUR HOMEWORK AND CAN REPLY YOU DO SO!
    The Legendary Beyonce Knowles! The world’s greatest.

  117. MIKE February 12, 2011

    Gil is nothing but an arrogant washed up little queen. I agree that Janet should have dumped him along with JD, both of them have really held Janet back creatively.

  118. Violet February 13, 2011

    LOL at the Beyonce has been here 12 years comment. She is good artists but her years in the biz are not even close to Janets. But bees fans are retarded so I would expect nothing else. As a cowboy fan we always voice our disapproval of the team and the organization when we want. We never have Jerry Jones writing us letters on what we can and cant say because he knows we pay the bills and that we will be there each sunday regardless. He wrote this letter and it is just making things worst all over the internet with non fans chiming in

  119. NETHERLANDS February 13, 2011

    Hahahahaha

    Damn, you guys hatin´ on Janet why? she’s off the hook!
    I think she’s back and doing great! i’m a big Jackson fan for 20 years now (yeah i’m 24) and people are always hating for crap! I just love the idea of the personal tour, here in EUROPE we cant wait, people are dying over here (the netherlands) for new dates! In ASIA the press are loveable about her new tour! This is just a new fresh start!

    She’s comming back for sure! and HAHAHAHAHA people are talking that Britney is comming back. PLEASE whatever her voice is CRAP! hahahha tours CRAP! that girl is for real f***** up. And then Beyonce all the respect she’s great seen her live already, BUT JANET is still on. all the big artists love janet!

    BTW. go check for yourself her tour, then you wil say: ‘OKE JANET IS STILL KICKIN’ IT!.

    GIL HIGH FIVE FOR THIS ONE!

  120. emmawinters February 13, 2011

    Gil is no my fav choreographer she has worked with but he has a point!

  121. ~Troy February 15, 2011

    …just a NOTE:

    ~Troy (February 7th comment) and Troy (February 9th comment) are not the same person. We don’t even know one another. Though, it appears we are “on the same page”. Troy, you are “to the point and funny” with it.

    ~Troy, (Philadelphia, PA)

  122. Niya February 15, 2011

    Ok, ok janice well said. I agree with you 🙂 She’s not worrying or stressing over this so why should we. I get your point . Is anyone else buying True You today in stores? I am!!

  123. rh February 19, 2011

    JANET JACKSON AMAZING……!!! THE ONE AND ONLY I LOVE HER!!!

  124. Heller March 11, 2011

    Gil is a d***** bag! His choreography sucks, he’s nothing but a dingleberry and an enabler. He is a yes-man and a tag along. Nobody likes him. If janet fired him today, he would have to get on welfare because I doubt he would be able to find another choreography job, because it sucks so bad…and what sucks more than his choreography is his attitude! Likeability important! Especially if your work sucks! If you’re not an amazing choreographer, you have no right to be arrogant.

    His 15 minutes of fame have been up for a long time. Im shocked that Janet still has him around! she usually kicks people to the curb by now. She must not have anyone waiting in the wings. Someone please find her a new buddy to replace him with so she can send his corny ass on his way.

    Janet needs to stop putting her career in the hands of her so called friends! She’d rather give a friend a job than have a solid product! If he was a true friend, he would step aside because he sees that he is no good for her career! Instead he curses out her fans and makes things worse, and she still keeps him around! Im losing respect for Janet…and I NEVER had respect for Gil because he is an asshole.

  125. Martine April 8, 2011

    And I need prayers to get my money back on the Denver show… $80 to sit at the very back, where the sound was terrible, and for a show where Janet was not on stage for more than one hour (given video footage, band interlude and most songs not being sung in their entirety). Costumes?! She wore jeans and tank top throughout the whole show. Loved the dancing! However, feel completely ripped off – hope everyone involved in the show enjoys the fans’ hard-earned money!!! (Oh, and I have been to 100s of shows of many different bands, obviously some better than others, but have never been inclined to want a refund, or even express my disappointment in writing, until this show.)

  126. glenn dixon June 11, 2011

    I love her dance moves. I love the way she sings. I love the way she talks. I cried when Michael passed away. It was like my brother died..thats the truth. I love her movies. I grew up watching her on tv. Janet got her on style and swag. Im not going to compare Janet to any other female singer.Janet been in the game to long and she is very smart. If these people were real fans they would not complain, Gil stop waisting time on haters…thats what they do. How can you hate on some one you have never met. How many people could take her place in concert. Remember all the dance moves, have the energy night after night. Im thinking Janet laughs at these comments…I WOULD! “GOD BLESS”

  127. SHANTE’ JANET.J NUMBER1FAN July 8, 2011

    YOU TELL ‘EM GIL IM ON THE TRAIN WITH U AND JANET AND THOSE ARE NOT REAL FANS THEY ARE CRITISIZING JANET THEY SHOULD BE HAPPY FOR HER THEY SHOULD BE EXCITED! TO ALL YOU HATERS KISS JANET’S ASS AND GO STRAIGHT TO HELL THATS HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU HATERS YOU DONT LIKE OH WELL!! JANET IS STILL THE BADDEST IN THE GAME AND GIL IS SUCH AN AMAZING FRIEND/CHOREOGRAPHER JANET IS BLESSED TO HAVE HIM HE REALLY SUPPORTS HER :’) I LOVE YOU JANET AND GIL AND THE WHOLE TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Gil

    I have been a Janet fan since I was 7; I am now 34 years old. I have every album, I have seen every video, and I have gone and followed Janet to different states to see her tour. I have always defended her in everything she has done. I have introduced people to her music that was not familiar with all of the different aspects of her music. With that said you are not going to sit up here in a letter and address it to us fans. Her true fans have always been here, and we will always support her. So please don’t make this about her, this is about you.

    I am sorry I agree with the opinion of, you’re not fit for Janet. I have watched your moves in many videos and can see more of a relaxed look. How about you do your homework and watch Janet back in the 90’s and Janet now. Her moves are not hard hitting and edgy, they are following the flow of every other artist. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you’re a bad choreographer. I can see you working with newer artist like Kei$ha. These are people who do dance songs, barely move in their video. Janet needs a choreographer that will push the envelope.
    I understand that this tour was recycled, and that’s fine. This tour was based off of the greatest hit album. I am not mad at that. I am mad at the fact that the dance routines are always not a good fit for her, barely goes with the music and is not cohesive with her style. I am also a little bit upset that she decided to not come here, until the second leg of tour. I went all the way down to Texas to go see her because I didn’t think she was coming here. Which I was surprised because Detroit has always supported her. That hurt big time. Then she did eventually come here as a second thought. I do have some issues with this tour. Janet has disappointed me a little; however, you pissed me off. How are you going to sit up here and cuss out her fans? How are you going to sit up here and tell us what to do?

    I am sorry but you owe us an apology. You need to understand you directed this to ALL of her fans, not the fans who are fair weather fans. I have been there before control, and I will be their until the day I die. So don’t sit up there and get smart with me. You got the wrong one. Do you have any idea on how one time, I gave plasma, because I had no money, living out of my car, and I refuse to miss supporting my girl. So I don’t know who the f*** you think you are, but you better back the f*** off.

  129. Katrina Joy January 30, 2012

    Okay “Anthony” We understand where you are coming from but then again YOU need to back the F*** off because as an actual Professional Dancer, Choreographer, and Performer you don’t know what the F*** you’re talking about. I’d like to see you try Dance like Gil and try Choreograph something As good as his Choreo. I bet that you can’t! So what if you’re Janet’s Fan, and the years of how long you’ve been her fan and whatever doesn’t matter. You’re just a Fan not a Friend or Family Member. The Dance world is a big place and You don’t know what It’s like, It can be stressful enough, and whatever you just took a long time to type is B*******. I’ve actually KNOWN Gil for a long time he used to be my Choreographer and I have seen all of Janet’s work compared to all other artists and Choreographers. Gil is Amazing and what are you?! Trash, so if anything You need to back the f*** off because you have no Idea what the f*** you’re talking about.

    General note for everyone: If you have nothing positive to say about Gil, then don’t say it at all especially if you don’t know him or Janet!

  130. Katrina Joy January 30, 2012

    Oh and BTW, I don’t know who the f*** you think you are!? But Gil’s Dance Family is quite huge so if anything you better back the off. What are you going to do about it if he doesn’t? You have no connection to Janet what so ever other than being her “Fan”. Just leave it at that, No problem. Thanks

    Aloha&Mahalo.

  131. underdog August 9, 2014

    Gil, you are talented but your style is so f’n wrong for her. She needs to hit beats hard and not some weird quarter beat bulls hi* moves. Her stylist needs to be fired. She is trying to look new but it just looks bad because her stylist is an idiot and thinks that drop crotch is new. That was 2 years ago. Most of all, she needs to get back to her roots. She needs to realize that she is “blacker” than most people in the industry without having to change her demeanor. She knows more about R&B than most people. She needs to start sampling again with J&T with the Supremes/Sly/MOTOWN, etc. The dance is a major part and it doesn’t fit…AT ALL. And it’s not regressing to dance the way you feel you should dance. She looks like she is doing a routine when she does your choreography.

  132. underdog August 9, 2014

    furthermore, watch her 1987 grammy performance. If that were on today, I’d be on the floor dying because of how good it is…in 2014.

  133. Underdog August 9, 2014

    I was obsessed with Janet. I still am a little. She lost her way though. That guy Gil only has to choreograph half of the show since most of her hits already have “famous” and memorable dances already. Yet I am etching her new live shows and the dancers are pretty much doing filler s*** in between hit songs. You go Gil! Seriously, love her but someone needs to come and clean house. Start with Gil and the stylist please. She can be on top in 2 secs if someone actually “in the know” gave her some guidance

    We’re not hating on Janet. We LOVE Janet. It’s the creative direction & choreography that we have an issue with. It sucks. Her songs are the bomb and will forever be the bomb, but your choreography & choice of dancers are sh*tting all over her legacy. Janet used to have s***, athletic dance moves that we couldn’t wait to learn. They were innovative and new. We were always at the edge of our seats. Now they’re just high school, spastic garbage with ZERO inspiration. You can see the audience in her performances during awards shows, they’re all checking their nails, wtf Gil…
