Watch: Madonna Responds To Fan Slam

Published: Monday 12th Sep 2011 by Sam

Madonna‘s disdain for hydrangeas went viral last week, after the singer slammed those given to her by an unknowing fan.

Now, in an interesting new twist, the supposed Queen of Pop (sorry, always preferred Janet) has responded to the backlash from critics and fans alike regarding the incident.

Check out what the 53 year old had to say after the jump…

Wonderfully wacky, and a tad indulgent. Got to love ol’ Madge.

  3. Your-Madgesty September 12, 2011

    iLMAOOOOOOO!

    F*****’.BLOODY.BRILLIANT! =D.

    And fyi, Sam—That fan was no fan at all. He was an imposter and nothin’ more than a weak version of ‘Borat’.
    The QUEEN spotted ‘her’ for her treachery and gave ‘her’ a public beheading for her foolery..

  4. BougieHippie September 12, 2011

    Thats why she’s the QUEEN!

  5. The Academy Of the Navy, Beehive, Monsters, Spearz, Barbs & Kens aka Jamir21 !! September 12, 2011

  6. D.Strock September 12, 2011

    Props. That was pretty funny

  7. I’ma have to send her to her maker September 12, 2011

    Madonna is the queen of pop. Janet fairly is too but she didn’t start that lane so truthfully madonna is.

  8. Yurges September 12, 2011

    What a B.I.T.C.H looool

  9. Madonnalover September 12, 2011

  10. AndySaysSmile September 12, 2011

    LOLOLOL!

  11. eric September 12, 2011

    HAHAHA! QUEENS DO NOT NEED TO APOLOGIZE!
    ALSO I LOVE THE SHE HAS TO BE HERSELF. SHE CAN NOT PRETEND SHE DOES NOT LIKE SOMETHING JUST TO BE NICE. PEOPLE SHOULD LEARN FROM THAT.

    “THIS IS WHO I AM
    YOU CAN LIKE IT OR NOT
    YOU CAN LOVE ME OR LEAVE
    CAUSE I’M NEVER GONNA STOP!

  12. > that,s why you mad. September 12, 2011

    Madonna is the truth,a real legend in that pop sh-it keep doing you.

  13. Put That On Everythang September 12, 2011

    Im sorry not trying to sound racist but it’s mostly white people that refer to her as the Queen of Pop but just like Sam i prefer Ms. Jackson and she got just as many hits as Madonna and has just as much impact and influence on other female entertainers in the game.

  14. The Academy Of the Navy, Beehive, Monsters, Spearz, Barbs & Kens aka Jamir21 !! September 12, 2011

    Madonna is the QUEEN OKAY AND I`M BLACK !

  15. Bey Fan… September 12, 2011

    Love and respect Madonna ….don’t see the purpose of this video. But I guess at 53 you can whatever you want….

  16. THEMAN September 12, 2011

    Lol she’s something else huh.

  17. LOVING ‘4’! (ANNE) September 12, 2011

    Madonna is the undisputed Queen of Pop! No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

  18. Imgunnacheckuboo September 12, 2011

    I LOVE IT!!!

    I’m so sick of these celebrities apologizing after every little thing. She doesn’t have to like the f***** flowers. She accepted them and seemed grateful to the fan at the time.

    What more is there to ask for?

  19. ThatBoyLuke September 12, 2011

    @PUT THAT ON EVERYTHING “Im sorry not trying to sound racist but it’s mostly white people that refer to her as the Queen of Pop but just like Sam i prefer Ms. Jackson ” < It's nothing to do with race, it's to do with the fact that Madonna is the highest selling female ever and has sold more than twice as many records as janet, her tours have far outsold Janet and her legacy far exceeds Janet… accept it and move on, Madonna is Queen like MJ was King. #NoJanetShade

    P.S LMAO at the vid, I thought she was making some lil cheese appology but i shoulda known the Queen would never do that, test Madonna and you will die. lol

  20. HaYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYy September 12, 2011

    hahahahaha
    thats hilarious and brillinat tbh, but thats how you KNOW she has too much time on her hands.

  21. LOVING ‘4’! (ANNE) September 12, 2011

    Oh yeah, I’m black also. I don’ t think the race theory is true. I grew up during the time period when Madonna was establishing her position and while Janet came along and also had a lot of Pop/R&B success, Madonna clearly sat and remains on the throne as the Queen of Pop. Black or white, Madonna was accepted as such and truly earned that title.

  22. Darren September 12, 2011

    that was the perfect response to shitty publicity.

  23. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) September 12, 2011

    This is one of the 1001 reasons why I love her !

    *applause*

    @Sam : we don’t wanna know if u like Janet or not ! YOU AIN’T S*** !
    And we all know that !
    The official queen of pop is MADONNA
    that title is Madonna’s and ppl already know this FACT ! You ain’t foolin anybody when u tagged janet’s legendary name in your FLOP attempt to create a stupid Stan war !

  24. Madonnalover September 12, 2011

    @POP
    LOL! You better put sam in check!

  25. onyx September 12, 2011

    This is why i love her, she’s so mean hahhahah, Sam i love Janet too but just because she’s Michael’s sister doesn’t mean she’s the Queen of Pop, we all know the 2 first Janet’s album flop, Madge never failed, and Janet is more R&B i give her that title the Queen of R&B, cause her music is in that direction, Madonna music’s is Pop, is like Prince you can’t call him the King of Pop not because he don’t deserve but because his not Pop, Janet has made some Pop songs but all her fans and I’m one of them know she’s not Pop maybe in the 80’s she was more Pop but in the 90’s she change, she left Pop 4 R&B. Madonna is The Queen of Pop, why everybody want that title so much, is like Pop music is better than R&B, Rock, Soul, Jazz, Synthpop, Dance, Electronica wow.

    Long Live The Queen!

  26. THE UNIVERSTY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA) September 12, 2011

    Ehhh…….Madonna’s a DIVA lolol…..

  27. B. Hill September 12, 2011

    I don’t give a s*** who you prefer Sammy…Madonna has sold 100 million more albums than Janet has, has had boatload more hits, tour grosses avalanche hers, is in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame AND has been cited by both Billboard *and* Guinness as the Most Successful Female Recording Artist of All Time. “Supposed,” my ass. There is no question here.

    I’d sooner put Whitney, Mariah, or even Celine above Janet as ‘Queen of Pop’…since they’ve all been more successful than her too…but still #1 is Madonna.

    And BTW, I’m black so the race card doesn’t work.

  28. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) September 12, 2011

    @Madonna lover :

    Lolz ! Yes , he should have known I’m still here 😛 !

    @Sam: Don’t f*** with Madonna stans !

    And supposedly ?!

    B**** please … Take a seat and swallow that “queen of pop” s*** u did !

    I know truth hurts boo ! She’s Madonna dumb c*** !

  29. Hush September 12, 2011

    Sam played you all like Lotto with that Janet mention. You all are a little TOO easily baited. lol

  30. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) September 12, 2011

    @Sam :

    You ain’t s*** ! you keep shading Rihanna and look at her now !

    And now you wanna shade the queen mutha ?!
    She don’t know that shady hating bugs like you still alive ! Let alone your opinion about her !

    P.s : your shade is so weak , call a b**** to inspire you 😉 ! Or you can learn something from a natural shader like mr. T ! I know your ass visit his website more than it visit the toilet/bathroom !

    I know it hurts you that she dedicated a vid to a flower and don’t know about your shady ass 😆 !

  31. Joy September 12, 2011

    Now this is the reason I LOVE ME SOME QUEEN MADONNA! 🙂

  32. jmoore September 12, 2011

    Madonna is a HOT MESS, thats why at 53 she looks like she is 65. She is so disrespectful!

  33. THE UNIVERSTY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA) September 12, 2011

    And BTW Sam has shaded most of the artists on this blog.Remember when he called my fave an Identity Thief on a Madonna post????Exactly.

  34. onyx September 12, 2011

    Sam you always put s*** in some artists that you don’t like (why? don’t you do a post about how much J..Lo sold this period between her singles and album, they would be amazed at the amount but this site wants to give the impression that she and other artists flop, do not.

  35. I’ma have to send her to her maker September 12, 2011

    @onyx janet’s album all for you was pop. I get what you’re saying. Janet has mixed pop with r&b. If janet wasn’t pop britney wouldn’t have admitted to admiring janet and being inspired by her dance moves and music growing up. I don’t think she’s queen of r&b cuz there are others more deserving of that title and janet’s voice is not that strong to be soulful r&b but her music has always been a mix of pop/dance/r&b. Madonna has been slaying the sells more than janet. That’s why she’s queen of pop. And it’s not cuz she’s white cuz even majority of blacks kno madonna is the queen and her music had a universal impact. Janet is more the princess of pop like britney.

  36. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) September 12, 2011

    @ISTAN 4gaga :

    Sam is child ! PERIOD ! And I will shade him everytime he do that to someone at Madonna’s caliber !

    and I like both gaga and Madonna ! Yes I see similarities , but since gaga take it to the next level from where Madonna left it , gaga got my respect after all and I truly like the message she’s fighting for ! I will never hate gaga because she’s a fan of Madonna !

    but anyway , you should add madonna to your university ! no one can deny she got strong stans 😉 !
    What about textbooks ?! The Madonna book on how to stay relevant by university of gaga 😛 !

  37. BMIKE September 12, 2011

    Sam I’m with you — I love Madonna, but I don’t give a damn how many albums she sold, she’ll never be more entertaining than Janet. Besides, I see waaay more people imitating Janet vs Madonna. Hell, Britney should write Janet a check for the first 5 years of her career since she was completely swagger-jacking her then.

  38. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE RETURNS. September 12, 2011

    Janet>>>>Madonna(AND BLEACHonce) 😉

  39. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) September 12, 2011

    @laceFLOP :

    I am a new artist and I want to flop so badly , will studying ashanti’s career help me achieving my goal ?!

    a lot of ppl told me it will help a lot! And I can check Khia’s career as a guidance too !

    Any other suggestions ?!

    BTW : they told me to stay away from the one who’s your gravatar cuz she’s flop-proof and will ruin my reputation as a rising flop artist !

    And without asking me : of course My biggest FLOP idol is KERI HILSON !

  40. onyx September 12, 2011

    @I’ma have to send her to her maker
    I want to ask you something, when you see Britney Spears who do you see in her Janet or Madonna, i see Madge, i know she admire Janet too but she is more like Madonna, as for Gaga i like her the similarities are there but i think Gaga put something more in. Madonna in the 80’s was compare to every female singer and was acussed to copying some of them, in 20 years Lady Gaga will be like Madonna, people will not want to compare it with a new singer, clearly there will be a new singer who revolutionized the world of music and people will say she’s better than gaga and has more talent, the same today with Madonna, this new singer denies copying Gaga and gonna say that she only pays homage, Madonna is respected for all she has done in the world of Pop and more, Lady Gaga will have to be respected for what she’s doing now, everyone has their place in this world.

  41. Dunk September 12, 2011

    MADONNA IS F***** BRILLIANT!!!!!!! LMFAO!!!!!

  42. I’ma have to send her to her maker September 12, 2011

    @Onyx Umm no I see more janet in britney when I see britney. Dont know what you’re looking at. Britney even admitted janet was the main to inspire her.

  43. Mr.Mr. September 12, 2011

    Hmmm…I hate Madonna and really think she is overrated. I mean I dont get her appeal, other than her being a s***, what does she have to offer.

    That being said I do respect the fact that the b**** is a b**** and isnt afraid to admit it..

  44. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE RETURNS. September 12, 2011

    @Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY)

    H** HUSH & purchase some more copies of BLEACHonce’s album ..it’s STRUGGLING 😉

  45. I’ma have to send her to her maker September 12, 2011

    If anyone is more like madonna it’s gaga. Britney is more like janet…I never seen madonna in britney when I looked at her. Britney was too young in the 2000’s to be strictly inspired by madonna. Janet was already dominating the dance videos along with mj by the time it was the 90’s. If you actually seen janet’s dance moves and britney moves they are more similar.

  46. SHESDUMB; MY FAVES HAVE OSCARS AND EMMY’S, WHAT ABOUT YOURS? September 12, 2011

    FUNNY VIDEO……….BUT THE REAL QUEEN OF POP WOULD’VE ACTED BETTER.

  47. Madonnalover September 12, 2011

    @Mr.Mr.
    SMH……people always have the same s*** to say about madonna when they are trying to support their claim that she’s overrated and untalented. Please, come harder than that.

  48. I’ma have to send her to her maker September 12, 2011

    @bmike no shade at janet but it’s obvious janet was not born to be a star. Her family business forced her into the entertainment industry. She never wanted to be an entertainer at first. But Joe wanted all his kids to so she eventually had to but once she did it more the more she liked it. And Janet had talent and could dance her ass off but it’s obvious the person who inspired her dancing was michael if u’ve seen her rhythm nation video. Paula abdul also helped with choreography with janet in the beginning too. So it’s not like she was a dancer at first. She trained to be one. However, putting all that aside, it’s pretty clear the person who britney imitates the most is Janet. No one else.

  49. onyx September 12, 2011

    @I’ma have to send her to her maker
    I will not discuss that with you, but Britney has also said that Whitney is one of her inspirations, question again (Do you see something of Whitney in Britney?) cause i don’t see nothing.

  50. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) September 12, 2011

    @LACFLOP :

    i think that it is very funny.

    you know it would take too much time and energy to worry about what everybody else has to say or feels, i love madonna because she just doesn’t give a f***.

  71. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) September 12, 2011

    Beyonce is a legend and Michelle Obama knows that ! That’s why she’s on her IPOD ! not like your favs ! I don’t think she know who’s the f*** is ashoshi or ashfonti !

  72. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE RETURNS. September 12, 2011

    @Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY)

    LMAOOO! BLEACHonce is far from a LEGEND. To be a LEGEND you must be INNOVATIVE . BLEACHonce has done NO such thing. The h** has STOLEN everything since the beginning of her career. H** don’t make me pull up the RECEIPTS !

    BTW, like the BASIC B**** you are…you forgot the period at the end of LACEFRONCE 😉

    H** I SEENT YOU!

  73. B. Hill September 12, 2011

    THE GREAT LACEFRONCE RETURNS…your dumbass dad REALLY should have worn a condom that night he managed to manipulate that disease infested prostitute into letting him it for free in the ally behind your grandma’s house.

    I mean look at yourself. Yuck.

    Your life has no meaning or value. You’re insignificant, worthless and probably as ugly as sin. Your only divergence from the misery that is your wack existence is talking s*** on TGJ. Tell me how does it feel when, after you click send, the realization of you being a loser who could die tomorrow and not be missed by anyone comes crashing down on you like a safe? Might as well end it now. If you can’t do it for the world, then do it for yourself because I don’t think it gets any better for you, my friend. This is it. Go ahead and jump.

    Sucks to be you…glad I’m not! 😉

    Plus, you’re a BLEACHonce fan..a Nicki GARBAJ fan…..what do you know about MUSIC??? Both GARBAGE.

    _____________________________________________

    Too sensitive about what????

    The fact that you can’t comprehend my acccusations that YOU DO NOTLIKE RIHANNA OR BRITNEY(Notice I didn’t mention any word about you stanning for them in that last comment) ??? or the fact that you can’t deal every time someone shuts you down with comments that actually hold water.I am not pressed at all over you….You are my PEASANT and JESTER,you are supposed to entertain me (even if it involves lying to yourself.)

    “H** HUSH?!” Was that the best you could do? The word “h**” capitalized? I feel so empty for you. Not even sad. Just empty. I can’t even downgrade my opinion of you even more.

    Like I said “THE GREAT LACEFRONCE RETURNS.”, you’re just worthless is all. Your life’s value is in the minus column. You’re a nobody. A nothing. A waste of oxygen. A waste of time. If you died tomorrow, TGJ wouldn’t celebrate or mourn. Offline society wouldn’t celebrate or mourn either. No one would care…anywhere.

    Your only iconic status comes from being a cautionary tale — and ripe example — of what happens when losers are allowed to breathe. If you even have that much acclaim.

    Real talk: I’m thinking you never should have been conceived and your mother should have aborted you, but I suppose she didn’t have the cash.

    Just a worthless specimen, you are. Pity.

    Yes, Janet all the way. Apparently Madge feeds of from attention, Madge always have to do some dumb s*** to get ppl talking while Janet just shows her talent and her true beauty. You see controversy creates cash. At least Janet earns her income. Her legacy actually means something. That’s why all the girls want to be her. Unfortunately, life is too short to play catch up!

    —————-

    The GREAT LACEFRONCE agrees. Madonna is more known for her GIMMICKS…SORRY! It’s the truth . QUEEN JANET is the better performer & better actress…and very successful at doing so!

    People say Madonna “re-invented” herself alot, really they mean she found different ways to garner media attention with her gimmicks and whatnot. But THE GREAT LACEFRONCE says kudos to the old b**** for learning how to get attention!

    ..BUT

    Madonna is EVERYTHING.

    And Sam STFU. Madonna is the Queen of Pop. No Question. Janet is a great performer and artist, so is Cyndi, Kylie Minogue etc. but Madonna is the Queen. Michael is the King. period.

  97. DIONFATALEI September 12, 2011

    And Ewww Madonna does NOT like to be called Madge and I dont like when people call her that either…..

  98. DIONFATALEI September 12, 2011

    @EDGY_T!M3LESS

    B**** please. Madonna doesn’t feed off anything, She’s just poking fun at the stupidity of it all. Like anything Madonna does somehow makes national news, and she cant help that because of her status.

    And did you really say Madonna’s legacy has no meaning??? What. A. Joke.

  99. I’ma have to send her to her maker September 12, 2011

    @Onxy Britney never said whitney wasn’t a big inspiration to her. She’s a vocalist anyways. Not a performer or dancer. Janet was. And we can clearly see that. No one else reminds britney of anyone more than Janet. C’mon. If you can’t see that in her music and dancing you must be blind. Not saying madonna DIDN’T inspire her but it was janet more than madonna. Madonna’s 80 style and persona was NOTHING like britney in the early 2000’s to now. In the 90’s madonna started getting more exotic. Madonna has always adapted with the times in which her music dancing and lyrics have not sounded the same. Britney’s image and music that bubblegum pop stuff always has.

  100. I’ma have to send her to her maker September 12, 2011

  101. Jasmine September 12, 2011

    LOL I thought it was funny. I like how they used the music from the Godfather. In terms of “Queen of Pop.” I think that term goes to the most popular artist art. Madonna was the Queen of Pop in the mid 80s when she was putting out hit after hit. Whitney took over that in the late 80s to early 90s and when Janet took on that title early 90s to mid 90s. I think it is just a term of the most popular female on pop charts at the current time.

  102. royalkev September 12, 2011

    I guess most people here will see Madonna as the reigning Queen & that’s fine. i respect that, but I don’t think that when it comes to this matter it has the light shed on it to give everyone a more well rounded point of view.

    #1 First of all Janet’s music has always been Pop music (which has crossed over to R&B). That’s a big difference than being considered an urban artist with a few cross over pop hits. She’s just as important to MTV as Madonna & MJ were. For the record, Britney did initially state (early in her career) that Janet was an major influence (she stopped mentioning her after the superbowl until recently when she used Janet’s music in the background for her MTV tribute ad).

    #2 Since the 2004 Superbowl Janet has been a blacklisted artist that doesn’t get away with the kind of stunts (like the one this post is about).

    #3 Before the superbowl Janet’s was the #2 90’s artist of the decade. Madonna placed behind her (Mariah was first). Janet released much fewer albums than Madonna.

    #4 Janet – with only (5) studio albums Control – All For you in comparison to Madonna’s 10(with the Evita soundtrack) still have VERY SIMILAR stats people. All the way up ’til 2004, they both had 5 #1 albums, many Hot 100 singles – Janet had (10#1’s) to Madonna’s (12) with less releases. One of these artist is working twice as hard to barely surpass the other.

    #5 Janet’s tours were bigger than Madonna’s until (you’ve guessed it 2004)

    Janet’s 1990 ‘RN tour’ $65 mil –
    -Madonna’s 1985 ‘The Virgin Tour’ – 5mil
    -Madonna’s 1987 ‘Who’s that Girl’ – $25mil

    Janet’s 1993 “Janet” Tour 75mil
    -Madonna’s 1990 ‘Blonde Ambition’ (N/A)
    * but under July 1st that date was cancelled due to poor ticket sales).
    -Madonna ‘s 1993 ‘the Girlie Show’ $70mil

    Janet’s 1998 “The Velvet Rope’ $78 mil

    – Janet 2001 All For You 55mil (not including 11 U.S. shows & 4 sold out Japan shows)
    -Madonna 2001 ‘Drowned World Tour’ – $76mil

    Madonna’s
    2004 – ReInvention Tour – $125mil
    2006 – Confessions Tour – $194mil
    2008 – Sticky Sweet – $408mil
    These are great #’s for sure! Check out how long she’s been on these tours…

    Now Sales:

    Madonna 200 Million (she’s released & released greatest hits cds in ’87,’90,’95,’01,’03 &’09). Most artist don’t release this many. She’s sold 51million from her Greatest hits packages.
    It’s interesting that she’s the Queen (with 150million in total for all her other disc). Someone like let’s say , Mariah has near that same total (200 mil almost ) and most of those sales are from hard work with studio album releases.

    I’m not taking away from the 200 Madonna has under her belt. I’m just saying that most of her peers didn’t release compilations of recycle hits from there past to top their competition. That’s was tipped the scale. Otherwise Madonna’s near Mariah & Whitney.

    Madonna can be Queen! …I think Janet is very much soone as well. That’s all I’m saying! Sorry for the errors – it’s late. i just had to make a point here, with all the Janet shade.

    “supposed Queen of Pop”.Yes, no title and no crown is official, but nobody doubts Madonna.

  107. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) September 13, 2011

    Oh, btw, when it comes to Janet, I never put her next to Madonna because I think they’re very different.Janet is a queen in her own right (I wouldn’t call her pop), so Madonna is the queen of pop while Janet is the queen of urban pop (if you will).The way they dance, the way they experimented, their videos, it’s all very different.

  108. Czar September 13, 2011

    RoyalKev, you have more excuses than a man on death row. Are you this PRESSED that you sit at home all day pondering explanations and ways to try and close the very large sales/accolades gap between Madonna and Janet — but of whom released their debut albums around the same time, and therefore have had equal time to sync up with each other. Madonna has had eleven studio albums. Janet has had ten. Stop acting like Janet hasn’t put out her share of compilations (Control: The Remixes, janet. remixed, Design of a Decade, Number One’s.) If Madonna puts out a lot of hits compilations, and they sell, then what does that tell you? That there’s a demand for them. Plenty of hits packages…ahem…flop.

    Worldwide Sales comparison:
    Madonna (1983) sold more than Janet Jackson (1982)
    Like a Virgin (1984) sold more than Dream Street (1984)
    True Blue (1986) sold more than Control (1986)
    Like a Prayer (1989) sold less than Rhythm Nation (1989)
    Erotica (1992) and Bedtime Stories (1994) sold less than janet. (1993)
    Ray of Light (1998) sold more than The Velvet Rope (1997)
    Music (2000) sold more than All For You (2001)
    American Life (2003) sold more than Damita J0 (2004)
    Confessions on a Dance floor (2005) sold more than 20 Y.O. (2006)
    Hard Candy (2008) sold more than Discipline (2008)

    So there you have it. Between Janet and Madonna’s 10 and 11 studio albums respectively; roughly only 2 Janet albums outsold Madonna’s. The rest of the time when they went head to head, Madonna cumulative sales outdid Janet’s. Let’s just keep it real.

    You’re constantly talking about some alleged “Blacklist”. Get over that. The “blacklist” that Janet experienced was fleeting, but stans like you cling to it like the holy grail. It’s your sad security blanket. The Dixie Chicks faced a similar (if not bigger) blacklist, and their album still went on to make a dent. Madonna, herself, went through several stints where she has alienated herself from the media and suffered for it. The difference is that Madonna knows how to recover from her backlashes, and Janet doesn’t. Madonna knows how to turn tables on her naysayers and reclaim the media. Janet doesn’t. When Madonna runs into a dry commercial patch, she keeps her head and presses forward. When Janet’s professional chips are down, she comes apart at the seems; and at best hopes that the next time out her fortunes will magically improve. Madonna evolves. Janet doesn’t. She’s still trying to give us 1993 janet.-era, thinking that all will be okay if she can seduce listeners with the right sexual song, lose 60 lbs. before the album is released, and conjure up more toy story choreography like it’s still ’89. Backlist, my foot. That excuse worked for a few minutes back in 2004; almost a decade later, it doesn’t.The fact is that Janet is predictable…and from there she became boring…and from there the public has lost interest. You can only recycle “If” so many times before people say no.

    I used to be a fan of hardcore Janet’s, and own every single one of her albums (even those 2 flop first and second albums that her stans love to act like don’t count against the rest of her tally; and the last 3 that stans try to blame the Superbowl on for failing to deliver) but the truth is that there hasn’t been a single song Janet has released since “All For You” 10 years ago that I have liked. Not a one. I continued to buy her albums more out of habit than fandom, simply because she represents a nostalgic part of my childhood that I haven’t detached from. I haven’t been content with her in what seems like eons, and from what I can tell, there are others who basically feel the same way; so that backlash excuse doesn’t wash. I don’t like everything Madonna does either, but one thing she’s not is predictable. I know that if I’m not feeling this current phase she’s in, she’ll give me something different the next time. Janet…doesn’t. What you see is what you get. If you didn’t like her last album, you won’t like her next one. It’s the same ol’ with her. She hardly ever changes; her last reinvention was 20 years ago. I’m bored.

    But again, the whole “blacklist” thing is largely in your head because you don’t want to face the fact that it isn’t so much a “blacklist” as it is public apathy. There isn’t some corporate conspiracy to keep Janet from professionally succeeding; she just hasn’t done anything in years that the greater media and public has willingly latched onto. That would be like Madonna fans claiming the S** book is continuing to ruin Madonna’s career all these years later. Please. Walk away.

    Far as tours go, your comparison is off. When Madonna was on the road with The Virgin and Who’s That Girl Tours, Janet sat. Therefore she generated “0” road revenue. Madonna didn’t tour during the same period that Janet did with The Velvet Rope Tour, so there is no comparison there. If you’re going to compare, then compare when they were both on the road at the same time. Even if The Rhythm Nation Tour outperformed Madonna’s debut Virgin Tour from 5 years earlier, the fact is that it *didn’t* outperform The Blond Ambition Tour that was happening at the same time. The Drowned World Tour outperformed The All For You Tour. And we won’t even talk about The Sticky & Sweet Tour vs. The Discipline Tour; because that’s just sad. The ONLY tour Janet did that grossed more than Madonna’s from the same period was the janet. World Tour vs. Madonna’ s The Girlie Show Tour. The former of which played 123 dates versus the latter, which played only 39. So let’s ponder that for a second, Janet plays 123 dates and only grosses $5 million more than Madonna’s 39. Come on now. But you know what? Take it. Since it means that much to you. Score one for Janet. But Madonna toppled Janet on every other side-by-side tour comparison.

    You say Janet was the #2 biggest selling female artist of the 1990s. Bully, bully for Janet. Madonna was the #1 biggest selling female artist of the 1980s. Janet has never had a decade where she was the highest selling female act. Madonna has more hit songs in the US and worldwide; she has more #1 albums; she has more Grammy’s. I don’t care if it’s only one or two more; more is more. In the meantime, Madonna was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — despite the fact that her debut album was released almost a year after Janet’s. Billboard magazine called Madonna the “Most Successful Female Artist of All Time.” To Janet’s credit, she was called #2. But I bet it still pierces her competitive stans hearts that once again she was behind Madonna. Madonna is sitting on a fat $120 million dollar recording deal with Live Nation; while Janet is unsigned. Who knows what label she’ll end up at next, but wherever it is, I bet they won’t beat (or match) the deal Madonna has. And don’t even bother trying to use Janet’s past fleeting record-breaking deals to argue back; I’m talking about today.

    The ONLY area that I would give Janet credit for being more successful than Madonna is in the area of film; but hell Madonna has a Golden Globe for her performance in Evita. Has Janet won any (real) industry awards for her acting?

    Face it, for all your rationalizations, spins, conspiracy theories and excuses, Madonna (whose career started in 1982) has been *considerably* (and almost consistently) more successful than Janet – whose career started in what, 1973? Not only did Janet have a decade head start, but she also had name advantage.

    Oh, and I have to throw in real quick that the whole Britney thing is funny. Truth be told, I DO see more Janet in Britney than Madonna…however, it still says something when Britney herself goes through her entire career hanging on Madonna’s tits over Janet’s. Britney can’t shut up about her adoration of Madonna and the influence she supposedly gets from her…but she hardly mentions Janet anymore. And you know what? Madonna fans, by and large, don’t give 2 shits about Britney…while Janet fans have been steady trying their damnedest to get her to acknowledge herself as being part of the Rhythm Nation ever since she debuted. Aside from occasional snickering, Madonna fans by and large don’t give 2 shits about Janet either…yet you go to any area where Janet fans hang out, and you see this never-ending, almost comical, “Jan Brady” bitterness about Madonna because Madonna is, has been, and continues to be the bigger, more accredited star — and the one who the media gravitates to first. And how many times has Madonna pissed off the media (this latest episode included?) Yet the media/public still usually remembers her before Janet. Blame it on the Superbowl again, I guess.

    Fast forward to 2011; both women are long past their peaks/primes. Neither are going to sell that many more albums, or have that many more hits, at this stage in their careers. So realistically, the way its always been with Madonna and Janet will be the way it continues to be from now on — with Madonna being the more referenced/acknowledged star, while Janet hovers under her…with her fans bitter about it.

  109. Foevar_Express22 September 13, 2011

    Well, Madonna sold 200 million albums, really 150 while Janet sold 130+ albums, so technically its only a 20 million difference or a 60 million difference if u believing that 200 million crap. Madonna has more albums out while Janet is at 10 so, to me Janet is superior cuz shes at 130 w. 10. Janet has more awards then Madonna, we all know that. The only thing that Madonna has over Janet is tour gross. Madonna is a bad b**** when it comes to tours. Both women are compeletly different, but the only reason why ppl compare both of them till this day is because their careers and achievements is equally the same and the impact they made is the same. Ppl like to see stars make a ass out of theirself so ofcourse Madonna will get more praise. Their the only 2 mainstream stars to still last and have fans that still support them in a big way. Lastly Janet is Pop/R&B. Meaning when you listen to a song of hers u hear both genres in 1 song. Sometimes she even mixes Pop, R&B and Rock together.

  110. royalkev September 13, 2011

    @ Czar – I really can’t give this debate the time I wish to devote to it, but for starters I didn’t acknowledge Janet’s first 2 albums because I tied everything into when she became “Janet Jackson” and first got established. I spoke of Madonna’s releases from that standpoint too as well(she managed to establish herself early). I would do the same with MJ. He had several releases before Off the Wall and Thriller, but he wasn’t a huge solo star until then. I can even see including them if the success was moderate atleast, but it should count when they become a force. No one brings up Destiny Child’s first album, they began their story with ‘the writing’s on the wall’.

    I didn’t count Janet’s ‘ Control: The Remixes’ or ‘Janet Remixed’ albums for the same reasons why I didn’t bring up Madonna’s live albums( ‘I’m Going to tell you a secret’) or her other 2 soundtracks that she was feature on with other artist (‘Whose that Girl’ , ‘I’m breathless’). My focus was their studio albums (and those treated as such) and the amount of work released after the 2 were established(that’s where the G.H. cd’s came into play). Doad & Number Ones would count as her Greatest hits disc(but that certainly doesn’t compare to the amount of them that Madge released). It’s still outnumbered anyway you look at it.

    They both were very active in the 90’s and that’s why I compared their work in that decade. janet was the #2 artist of that deacade, Madonna placed further behind her. My main point that was being ignored is that Janet was blacklistes from 2004, so those albums afterwards didn’t get the promotion and radio push it deserved(and we all know this). It’s serving no point in bringing up ‘Discipline’ & the ‘RWT’ because Janet wasn’t even treated fairly. Madonna released s** books and made scandalous videos and cursed out beloved late night televsion host and it was praised (just like how this video will be). She’s not judged on the same scale as janet Jackson. It’s the same thing today with Beyonce and Gaga. It’s just not the same rules that these artist are playing by. It ‘s always been examples of this in music and that won’t change anytime soon.

    With the tours it’s not easy to find an instance where they both did one at the same time ,during the same year, etc… The numbers are what they are. They both were established then and you can see the demand when these ladies stepped out to do their concerts.
    I see that your mentioning how many dates were done by these women, but being that Madonna holds the record for the highest grossing one($408) , but the fact that Madge’s tour lasted much longer than most artist tours seems to get swept under the rug. Many of Madonna’s vctories are all hype and always have a very important detail that’s ignored.
    In your eyes she may have appeared to evovle(which is baffling when you listen to any of her early music and see the vocal decline that started in the 90’s on her records), but it doesn’t mean Janet hasn’t. It just was done in vain (for some that didn’t really see what those era’s had to offer because they kept Janet under the radar). #Truth

    LMAO!!!! The QUEEN has spoken.

  112. Sigh September 13, 2011

    The debate on who’s the queen of Pop between Janet & Madonna is irrelevant. Janet’s last relevancy was during her All for You era, while Madonna’s is until Confessions on the Dancefloor.

    And blaming it on the Superbowl? That was just a nipple slip. Madonna’s S** book days where more difficult to wash off, she was virtually panned everywhere, until she turned it around because she doesn’t have the victim mentality. Enough of this victim mentality s***.

    Even if you read the reviews of Janet’s albums post All for You, all the critics are complaining is that it has tried to stick & rehash the AFY formula. How can you be a queen when your subsequent releases tries hard to be a facsimile of one of your best works?

    I like Janet too (janet. to AFY era), but even Mariah would be above her (she was very instrumental in introducing to the mainstream one trend that lasts to this day: rappers in pop songs). Hell, even Whitney would be on top of Janet. I don’t think Janet is queen of anything at all.

  113. Czar September 13, 2011

    @ RoyalKev

    A few points:

    – Your career doesn’t begin with your first big success. It begins with your first project, no matter how its ultimately received. No one who isn’t ignorant will dare claim that The Writings on the Wall is what “began” Destiny’s Child’s story; that’s just crazy talk. You don’t get to cherry pick over titles and only claim what created an impact, and became a hit — while ignoring what failed. That’s deceptive as hell. You talk about factors of Madonna’s victories being swept under the rug. What do you call glossing over Janet’s failed first albums (and making excuses for her failed last few?) It doesn’t matter if Janet’s first 2 albums didn’t catapult her to stardom, or make her a force; they are titles released to the public with her name on them — and so they are to be equally counted (and judged) amongst those that did become successful.

    – I only counted Madonna’s studio albums against Janet’s studio albums when I was making my point; and of their similar number of [studio] albums — only two Janet titles outperformed Madonna titles by comparison from the same period. I didn’t even include Madonna’s hits collections, soundtracks, etc., etc. Your whole argument is heavily dependent upon the argument of Madonna’s hits and specialty albums boosting her sales…but the truth is that even if you only counted her studio albums against Janet’s studio albums, Madonna still wins. Overall, Madonna’s studio albums have outsold Janet’s. However, I will say this: Madonna cannot be faulted for working and releasing a lot of product — most of which sells. If she can continually release greatest hits albums that sell healthily, then so be it, and if Janet’s tally is significantly lower because she doesn’t have as many collections and soundtracks on the market as Madonna, then that ain’t Madonna’s fault. Sales are sales. Nobody stopped Janet from maximizing her catalog the way Madonna does. It doesn’t make Janet’s sales more earnest or sincere.

    – Don’t pretend the public and media reaction to Madonna’s controversies have been accommodating or dismissive. Madonna got slaughtered for her S** book and after she went on Letterman and swore up a storm. It wasn’t celebrated. No one thought it was cute. The criticism was harsh and bitter…and I don’t think Janet has ever been as professionally or publicly maligned as Madonna has on her worst days, so saying that Madonna isn’t judged as critically is a crock of s***. Madonna has been every bit as judged and criticized as Janet was during that Superbowl episode. Her American Life was “blacklisted” from radio too. The difference between Madonna and Janet, though, is that Madonna has the wit, street smarts, wherewithal (and better management) to slide out from under her backlashes and to bounce back quickly when she’s being doubted and dismissed. Janet doesn’t. Using the Superbowl to excuse the failures of things that came out years later is pitiful and doesn’t wash. It wasn’t any “blacklisting” that caused those albums, and that Rock Witchu tour, to fail…it was the publics general disinterest. The Superbowl is just your scapegoat for not facing the the record and ticket buying public wasn’t interested.

    – Madonna adding more legs to her Sticky & Sweet Tour in no way neutralizes, lessens or brings a colder perspective to its success. The demand was there for more shows, and so more were added — plain and simple. And they all sold out. Supply and demand is the name of the game, and in the end she came away with the most successful tour for a solo artist — ever. Nothing nefarious or sneaky about it. No one had to buy those tickets. That would be like me saying that at her peak, the janet. and Rhythm Nation albums only sold as much as they did because Janet kept on releasing an overabundance of singles. Who the hell cares? The bottom line is what the profit; not the why or the how.

    – No it’s not baffling to say that Madonna continues to evolve. Every phase/era of Madonna’s music/overall career is different from the last one. Madonna continues to move forward and almost never does same thing twice; that’s called evolving. And as far as vocal decline goes…ha…people who live in glass houses, my friend. Being a Janet enthusiast, you are in **no** position to condescend any other singers vocal ability with her name in the same breath. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

    Haha leave it Sam. I´m no big Madonna fan but she is The Queen of Pop and that´s it. Just like Michael is. As many have said Mariah or Whitney would be above her cos the 3 have R&B influences (not just pop like Madonna) but the 2 are clearly more succesful

    It’s a cute ploy to make it all about the flower, when the real issue is her being incredibly rude about a fan who came bearing a gift. She’s a c***. Let’s all just face that, thx.

    @ Czar – By all means no one is stating that ANY recordings done by an artist can be so insignificant that it’s not considered to be a part of their discography. It’s quite juvenile to expect that people would pretend that the unfamilar works don’t exist. I’m just stating that the first record that garner substantial success unofficially marks that artist entrance into the music industry. That’s when their recognized and when they become relevant. Artist that don’t reach this level arent established yet. That was the case with Janet’s status prior to Control. It’s the case with many great artist that do not instantly become mega – superstars.

    Yes, Madonna willingly choose to maximize her catalog with frequent releases and Janet didn’t churn out albums as often as Madge did. Still, what I think is noteworthy was that their impact was about the same. That says alot about Janet , especially when she’s surpassed her rival Madonna in some areas while having less to build on. The fact stands that Madonna wasn’t ultra successful during the 90’s(Janet was) and that’s why Janet managed to pulled ahead of her and become more accomplished during that era. It is certainly the other way around in this last decade. A loss would be a loss, but I know that it’s not that simple. Call it silly excuses, call it being pressed, whatever – but I call it the truth(because that’s what it is). Some people can’t afford to have their image tarnished – their not granted the same opportunities to recover. We all know that there are some artist that can do no wrong. I’m stopping here… That’s just not a debate.

    I see Madonna as a legend. I’m not taking anything away from her! QOP – knowing what I know , no – but she does deserve a crown for playing the game the way she has!

    That was hilarious, but she was still very mean that day.

    I love Janet but come on you guys… Who cares that Madonna sold more records, that’s not why she’s the queen. She’s the queen because she was innovative, ground breaking and pushed envelopes like no other. She paved the way for many of todays pop stars and they all credit her as their inspiration. Gaga included!! Janet is a great performer with some great music but she never really pushed envelopes the way Madonna did or was considered groundbreaking… She just did her thing and people loved her for it. But yeah… MADONNA IS THE QUEEN ALL THE WAY!!!

    B****!!!!

    Hell YES Madonna tell it how it is!!!
    LOVED THAT!

    Hope she copyrights that scene so GaGa don’t jump on it in 2 years time.

    Ingredients include:

    1. A pinch of SORRY
    2. Teaspoon of CREATIVITY
    3. Tablespoon of GHETTO
    4. A scoop of DIVA
    5. A SLAP OF REALITY (she don’t like the flowers, she don’t like em SIMPLE!)

    @ RoyalKev.

    Heh. Debating with you was entertaining. You have some points and I can understand where they come from, even if I don’t agree.

    No hard feelings.
