Ciara: ‘No Female Has Done It Like Janet Jackson’

Published: Tuesday 14th Jan 2014 by David

Peace and positivity.

Watch enough interviews given by Southern belle Ciara, and one will soon find that the above is all the performer seeks to share with the world.

With this in mind, one shouldn’t be surprised to learn that her recent interview with ‘Huffington Post Live‘ brought with it a fresh batch of praise for Janet Jackson, the icon whose career has long been admired by the mild-mannered mother to be.

Why she believes Jackson is the best female artist to rock Pop’s scene?

Watch below…

Hit the 4 minute mark!

Do you agree?

If not, who do you feel is most deserving of the title?

    I spotted no lies. People are always talking about Whitney, Mariah, Celine, Madonna and Barbra; but they forget about Miss Jackson! Don’t get me wrong, I love all of the aforementioned especially Nippy, but in terms of overall artistry Janet does IT for me!

  2. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014

    She is really milking this damn pregnancy! I wish she would promote her album this much! kii

  3. Rosie January 14, 2014

    This is like the fourth Ciara post today. I know you all want to make as many as possible before she falls off the face of the earth, but still.

  4. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014

    She wants that Janet collab so bad! smh

  5. Unbiased January 14, 2014

    Miss. Jackson is indeed one of a kind! I feel like people dont give her props for her innovation, after the nipplegate thing. She has influenced the biggest pop stars, Britney Spears(White Janet), Rihanna, Beyonce, Christina A. etc. I wish Ciara was as ambitious as her idol, she had great potential.

  6. Skyfall January 14, 2014

    I agree, love Janet

  7. Lovebird January 14, 2014

    On gurl shut up, I was and am still a huge Janet Jackson fan but Britney in her prime, Beyonce, Madonna have all done it better than Janet.

  8. puta January 14, 2014


  9. ROSEGOLD January 14, 2014

    What exactly did Britney do better than Janet? And don’t say anything about album sales.

  10. JOHNVIDAL January 14, 2014

    What´s up with all these Ciara posts lol she´s sweet so good for her I guess.
    You mean the biggest pop stars debuting after 2000 right? Cos those aren´t the biggest pop stars in general, obviously.

  11. Hee Hee January 14, 2014

    No one wants a Janet/Ci-error collab. They both have whisper goals and can’t hit notes. No wonder c-error has been copying Janets old moves and overdoing the matrix.
    Ciara has no vocal capability whatsover…she relies on cartwheels, backflips, the infamous two step, nose dive typical routine to somewhat pass as a bootleg Janet…..tuh…but she isnt even on the first step yet to coming close…

  12. Suicide Blonde January 14, 2014

    She’s one of the best Pop stars, that’s true, she’s very influential, yet so underrated, she is to the world what Kylie Minogue is to the USA.

  13. musicstan( ya’ll know who i stan for) January 14, 2014

    to all the naysayer ummm your comments are baised… one that is her dream collabo, that is her idol along with michael and i still don’t know why bey fans come for her when she is one of the biggest bey fan in music…she saids it herself so why the hate and @rosie please stop you stan for lana del rey and I like her and all but she still on album #1 ( which she remix numerous of time) when #2 become a hit then talk

  14. JOHNVIDAL January 14, 2014

    Better than Janet??? You know the answer: Exactly nothing.

  15. ROSEGOLD January 14, 2014

    I am a huge Bey fan (not stan), but the same goes for her. What did she do better than Janet?

    I agree with Madonna although I’m not a fan. She’s untouchable. Janet should’ve been right under her, but oh well.

  16. ROSEGOLD January 14, 2014

    Other than being a better vocalist (Bey).

  17. D January 14, 2014

    Lol at that flop comment. Britney is only 32. She is supposed to still be in her prime. Janet at 32 was still considered in her prime. With an Emmy winning tour and selling 10 million worldwide, she was still slaying at 32.Plus she could still perform. The fact that Britney fans have to say “when she was in her prime” when referring to Britney currently and she’s only 32 only proves how far she’s fallen. Janet also wasn’t selling 107k in the first week at 32 either.So what is Britney doing currently better than Janet did at the same age? Anyway, that was sweet of Ciara to say. Major props to her. And congrats to her on the pregnancy.

  18. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014


    Beyonce is a better OVERALL performer, if you are a huge fan you should know this.

    Ciara and Janet are dancers!

  19. Molly January 14, 2014

    Janets a better performer then Beyonce and Ciaras a better performer then Janet.

  20. Suicide Blonde January 14, 2014

    Britney is essential to the Pop world, like MJ and Madonna, she is Pop, easy folks, don’t make me go there, you know i’m good at this.

  21. ROSEGOLD January 14, 2014

    No Janet is an ARTIST! Just because she has a soft voice doesn’t mean she isn’t a good singer. She stayed on key and knew her voice. Same with Diana Ross. Ciara has a lot of problems vocally that Janet never had. Janet made a statement with her music and videos. Beyonce has taken a lot of inspiration from Janet. Case in point: Ring The Alarm performance from the VMA’s.

  22. pat January 14, 2014

    Janet could rock out as hard as the boys….(see rhythm nation tour) beyonce is a great performer but kind of relegated to the girlie girl style of performing…ciara hood style…aaliyah could have possibly been as good..but her stage presence wasn’t aggressive enough…

  23. Super Cisus January 14, 2014

    Thatciarajuice!!!!!! Im loving the ci posts because I am tired of the R**** and Beyoldce s***!! Janet and ci write their own music when will Beyfraud????

  24. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014

    I simply answered your question? What has Beyonce done better?

    She’s a BETTER OVERALL performer, and singer since you mentioned that too.

    and please janet was KNOWN to lip sync LOOL

  25. Super Cisus January 14, 2014

    B**** please Beyoldce does the same tired ass hair shake ass pop Cupid shuffle in heels that she been doing since 2003. Ci and Janet the real queens would destroy that ho on stage

  26. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014

    “Janet could rock out as hard as the boys….(see rhythm nation tour) beyonce is a great performer but kind of relegated to the girlie girl style of performing…”

    While I agree that she was a great performer She wasn’t the best overall. People only think performing consists on dancing, when it doesn’t.

  27. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014

    Cierror does that same tired ass matrix from 2005! b**** have a seat! She’s not a perfomer. She’s a dancer boo 😉

  28. DOSSOME January 14, 2014

    The VELVET ROPE TOUR is the best tour by any artist,male or female….this woman was slaying arenas waaay before it became fashionable to go on tour.I Can entertain the rude beyonce fan’s attempt at calling for attention but Britney stans,really???I Hate dragging the dead

  29. What? January 14, 2014

    Do you realize that Janet has more global success than Kylie?

  30. iamdexxx January 14, 2014

    JANET is the QUEEN of all performers next to her brother. Beyonce bores the s*** out of me with her bland personality and repetitive moves. So NEXT!

  31. Super Cisus January 14, 2014

    The same matrix that Fraudyonce has been trying to do for years? Oh ok b**** sit on youtube studying Ciara

  32. DOSSOME January 14, 2014

    Well,janet did more than “dancing” on stage,she sang LIVE on multiple occasions while on tour.her concepts were out of this world and for her to break off michael’s shadow and even inspire some of his 90s work,especially on HIStory speak volumes on her prowess

  33. What? January 14, 2014

    WTF are you talking about? What do these women do better than Janet? Beyonce is the better singer, but that’s about it. Janet has done it better as an overall artist. And let’s not forget when Madonna and Britney were at their peaks that released albums year after year. Beyonce keeps herself in the media some way or another, but Janet went on tour and went away in between albums and STILL smashed.

  34. DIGGER BEY January 14, 2014

    LMFAO @SLAY HIVE! Yesssssssss Dragggg That Non Factor Squad member. I luv it! I luv Janet but why are people always comparing??? Janet has influence Britney, Aaliyah, KING B and Citranny. Overall as a performer KING B REIGNS SUPREME! She has The Voice, Stage Presence and The Moves! The BIG 3!

  35. Sandra January 14, 2014

    Janet Jackson is the best female performer and best female dancer ever.

  36. What? January 14, 2014

    The Beyhive is so delusional it’s unreal. This post is clearly about Janet and Ciara, yet they find some way to make it about Beyonce. P.S.-Janet will always be a better performer than Beyonce. Janet’s skills are known as the best whereas Beyonce’s “skills” are known as just being better than her peers.

  37. Touché January 14, 2014

    Once again Flop_hive is living in the land of delusion. To be an “overall performer”, one would have to at least be average in all areas. You know damn well Beyonce can’t dance. The only things she can do is gyrate and sometimes move her feet (in such a basic manner). She has yet to show that she can piece together a flowing, transitioning, and coherent dance. Now, I’m not going to completely discredit her because she is a fantastic vocalist with some stage presence but to say she is an “overall performer” is too much and you know it.

  38. DIGGER BEY January 14, 2014


  39. DIGGER BEY January 14, 2014

    And @What…..Delusional Bum Bytch Re Read the comments. @ AngryBird was the one to bring THE QUEEN’S name n here first. Not THE HIVE.

  40. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014

    D***** The only thing delusional is your ENTIRE comment!
    kii Beyonce cant dance? I stopped there! She is an overall performer b****. I’m not the only one to say that either, and you KNOW it!!

    TGJ want let me post the video of L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell “Beyonce is the Most Talented Performer ALIVE”

    Look it up and GET YA LIFE #dimissed

  41. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014


    They won’t let me post RTW video either, but I’m sure you seen the dance she does with the kwaito dancers! A person that “can’t” dance wouldn’t be able to pick up that choreopgraphy! kii

    Girl BYE!!!

  42. Mark111 January 14, 2014

    Everyone wants to BE Janet and everyone wants to BEAT Beyonce. Beyonce is an entertainer a and Janet is a performer. These artist are the same, I wish you stans would get that. Beyonce is only better cause she one of the few who can sing LIVE while dancing, but Bey isn’t a full on dancer, but put on great shows cause she’s a jack of all trades, can do it all, but not a master of all the boxes.

  43. Queen Brit Brit January 14, 2014

    LOLOLOLOL!!! Janet is the best female performer, the end. This shouldn’t be argued. Britney and Ciara are the only ones who can come close to her throne. Janet stans coming for Britney need to have a seat though. We all know Britney was a huge Janet fan. JJ’s career lasted longer on top because it was a different time then. Most careers barely see past a decade these days. Not to mention Britney was the Teen Queen of the 90s who everyone predicted would die out by 2002 (LOLOL!). Britney peaked higher then Janet ever did, Janet didn’t have to deal with the media like Britney did. We all know what that did to MJ. Britney was the biggest star on the planet and she cracked like anyone would. If Janet had to deal with what Britney went through during her mid 20s I’m sure she wouldn’t have been killing it at 32.

  44. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014

    “Britney and Ciara are the only ones who can come close to her throne”

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL You could have said Ciara, but S******? kiiii

    Ya’ll are really stuck in 1999! Even then she was still STIFF! kii

  45. DIGGER BEY January 14, 2014

    DEATHH @SLAY HIVE! Not only Simon Cowell and L A Reid but music critics young and old says THE QUEEN is One Of The Most Compelling Entertainers of All Time. She always gets compared to MJ and Tina Turner’s stage presence and engergy. One even said, She’s Above All of all the female performers. #GOOGLE THE QUEEN

  46. Queen Brit Brit January 14, 2014

    On the side, its really annoying how Janet never gets the credit for birthing all of todays performers. They are influenced by Janet just as much as they are Madonna.

  47. DIGGER BEY January 14, 2014

    Queen Brit is shading her fav lmfaoooo. Because THE QUEEN is The Only One to come close to MJ’S THRONE! #SEATS ARE WAITING

  48. Queen Brit Brit January 14, 2014

    LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! Britney from 2001-2005 could compete with Janet!! The denial is cute though 😉 I don’t expect you to see that since you think Beyboon is better then Janet.

  49. Social1 January 14, 2014

    Hell Yes! I totally agree. I love Janet Jackson and what she’s accomplished. She’s inspired millions.

  50. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014

    LOOOL Girl please! Britney has always been stiff, and she is has completley LOST the little rhythm that she had! I wouldn’t expect you to give SLAYonce credit, since she’s been sinking your fave to irrelevancy with each release! kii

    How is Britney Jean doin again?

  51. SLAY_HIVE January 14, 2014

    Hun you are too lucky they won’t let me post videos on this thread! LOOOL

  52. DIGGER BEY January 14, 2014

    Bwahahahaha @Britney 2001 – 2005 can compete with Janet. Hun this is 2014! If the bytch can’t compete now. She was never able too. Janet n her 40s still can SLAY on stage. Mylie twerking will dragggggg Britney’s supposedly moves today. Also Britney was an Certified lippo during those years. Hun PERFORMERS KING B >> JANET > Lady Caca > Mylie > Keri Hilson > MooMoo > Britney

  53. onelove1814 January 14, 2014

    Oh please! As I much as I love Beyonce, I feel as though she has not yet reached the level that Janet reached artistically with The Velvet Rope album. That album is one of the best albums of all time because the different subjects in which she touched on. Stars nowadays wish they could have that much creativity and honesty. As far as Madonna goes, I feel as though she did some things for attention unlike Janet. No the superbowl incident was not intentional. People just hate! She’s a true queen.

  54. dee January 14, 2014

    Child Boo…Shut Up! You must under 30!

  55. DIGGER BEY January 14, 2014

    Um….@Oneluv 18…. What are u blabbing about??? Nobody said anything about artistry. We are talking about performing on stage. KING B >>>>>> Janet. #FIND UR LIFE

  56. truth January 14, 2014

    Man the HIVE is so insecure. You all know damn well JANET JACKSON gave you epic performances. She is a REAL DANCER, she has songs with meaning and TIMELESS ALBUMS!!!!! Janet, Rhythm Nation, Control, The Velvet Rope….. how soon ya’ll forget. NONE OF BEYONCE ALBUMS OR CONCERTS ARE AS EPIC AS JANET JACKSON’s (beyonce can sing better, yes, but everything else FALL BACK). Ya’ll remember the Icon special when Beyonce and them was paying homage? RESPECT THE LEGENDS THAT CAME BEFORE BEYONCE BEYHIVE!!!!! damn ya’ll some hateful fuckers

  57. Realest January 14, 2014

    Janet Jackson is an icon, the S*** and a much better dancer than Beyonce. However beyonce is in a league all her own, when it comes to music. Beyonce can inspire vocalists (American idol), can inspire dancers (America’s Best Dance Crew tribute), inspire musicians (See COUNTLESS props given by musicians from STRICTLY. A vocal/musicianship standpoint) and she has been pretty much the undisputed “head chick in the game” for some time now. Janet was never the “top all around ” chick. She was always somewhere near the top but was always one upped by the Mariah, Madonnas and Whitney’s. I don’t think they should be put against eachother because two different time periods and both iconic. Love them both. But ones a dancer/performer and ones a vocalist\performer.. I pick vocals over dancing ANY DAY cause at the end of the day they are SINGERS first and foremost and Janet’s whispering didnt, doesn’t and will never quite do much for me.

  58. PRINCE MACHIAVEL January 14, 2014

    Well I Respect Beyoncé Cause She’s A Great Performer But She’s Not Better Than Janet Simply Because Of Her Lake Of Artisity And Her Dancing Moves Are The Same! I Don’t Understand Why Beyoncé Never Goes Outside Her Box Why She Doesn’t Use A Music Band, Why She’s Not Trying A Rock’n’roll Or Indie Sound… This Is Why Beyoncé Will Never Be The Best Cause She Still Plays IT Savety!

  59. Greg January 14, 2014

    Yahsss Ciara. Rep. the Queen. IDK how & Y ppl like to downplay Janet like she’s not 1 of the biggest selling female artist in history. For selling 140+ million albums with only 10 albums. B**** get ya life. Janet took 4 years apart for each album and yet still no other b**** couldnt knock her off. Before Beyonce blew up, Who the hell was the #1 b**** in the game that everyone wanted to be, wanted to compete with and looked up too. She ruled between the years of 86-04. That’s almost 20 years straight with non stop hits. From fashion icon, trandsetter, hit-lister, sold out world tours. All the hype Beyonce has and she herself is yet to reach Janet’s iconic status, sales and achievements as well as Britney. Look what she’s doing at the age 32. Enough said! Janet just like Rihanna was consider an icon at the tender age of 24-25. Like come on! Now she’s enjoying her billions in the syrian desert sipping ice tea not worrying bout a damn thing.

  60. Marco9 January 14, 2014

    Janet Jackson is an amazing performer and was a trailblazer for the Ciara’s, Britney’s and Beyonce’s of today. (yes, that includes Bey) Janet helped lay down the blueprint that so many emulate today.

    Rumor has it that Miss Jackson has a comeback a-brewin’!

  61. RoyalKev January 14, 2014

    @ Unbiased

    Miss. Jackson is indeed one of a kind! I feel like people dont give her props for her innovation
    No Lies!!! No Lies!!!! No Lies!!! This comment … ***hugs***

    Janet does all her s**t first! That’s why I love it when misinformed, delusional and naive critters accuse Queen Janet of following a trend behind somebody else. It tells me that they have not studied their pop history. Janet’s an original artist that doesn’t want any parts of something that has already been done by other divas. She has always inspired her competition. Look it up! … Those that want to start a revolution and stand up for a cause (all of a sudden) have a case of that Rhythm Nation-itis. Everybody knows that only these Jackson’s were singing about Healing the World in the late eighties and early nineties (State of The World, Rhytnm Nation, Heal The World, We Are The World, etc). For the record, Janet slayed any performer that catered to Dance music during the 80’s/90’s & early 00’s (she was the first to have a #1 in all 3 decades). No nobody wanted to step in the ring with Janet because wigs, scalps, brain cells were going to be lifted! Janet is the BEST POP Artists ever! Period! That’s it! End of! (if you’re wondering about my other favs, I consider Bran, Whit & Bey all Pop/R&B artists)! Janet’s the reason people started making introspective albums and adding substance to Pop. She influenced that! … and a whole lot more!

    No female has done it like she has!!!

    I love Cici. She has NO HATE! I love seeing black females that are positive and not bitter about someone else succeeding. Stop shading Cici people, she’s really a sweetheart.

  62. DIGGER BEY January 14, 2014

    Dumb bytch @Truth STFU! Its my opinion. Just because Janet is an legend and came before KING B doesn’t mean sh*t. People not even KING B stans have been putting her past Janet as a performer. And this is about performing on stage h***. Stay on topic. TINA TURNER AND BEYONCE GISELLE MUTHAFAWKIN KNOWLES CARTER are the only two women n Popular Contempary Music in past and present that can give u VOICE, MOVES AND PRESENCE! Critics have been saying it for years. #SORRY H***

  63. Touché January 14, 2014

    @ Flop_Hive, Awww…Did I make the little hivy stan mad? Again stop being delusional. It’s only the batshit crazy hive and some ass kissing music industry folks who would say such a clueless statement. Any professional dancer or professional dance coach would tell you that Theifonce can’t dance, sorry. Also, name dropping doesn’t help your case especially since you brought up people who wouldn’t know the first thing about how to dance. Nice try:D

  64. Touché January 14, 2014

    Of course I saw the “dance” she does with the Kwaito dancers. It was basic and her form was extremely sloppy.


  65. What? January 14, 2014

    Excuse me, BUT you clearly DON’T know Janet’s discography if you’re saying that all she does is whisper. As a matter of fact, like 90% of Janet’s songs aren’t whispers. Beyonce is NOT the vocalist that Mariah and Whitney were. When Bey shows her “range”, it sounds like she’s screaming!!! She totally OVER-sings a lot of her songs. “Drunk In Love” is a prime example. To top that ALL off Janet’s performances/dancing were innovative and not to mention difficult. Beyonce’s? I think NOT. Beyonce even stares down the audience like Janet does.

  68. DIGGER BEY January 15, 2014

    Bwahahahahahaha @Douch…..U can’t never make THE HIVE mad. WE REMAIN UNBOTHERED while THE QUEEN becomes THE BEST OF ALL TIME! So i guess u think Janet has the voice, stage presence and moves. #STAY DELUSIONAL BUM BYTCH

  69. Marcus January 15, 2014

    You can have a stadium of seats. The only one who has compete with Janet is Madonna. And still, to me Janet is a better artist!

  70. Marcus January 15, 2014

    And LMAO at people saying all Janet is known for is dance. Dance is a big part of her artistry, but don’t get it twisted. Janet has an amazing power on stage. She does not even have to do anything but stand there and the audience will eat it up. If you seen her live you will know this.

  71. DIGGER BEY January 15, 2014

    Lmao @Marcus…No Hun those stadium of seats has Marcus on them *Poor Child*. When Janet can sing her ass off with amazing stage presence and dance at the same time. Then let me know. Until then PERFORMERS: KING B >>>>>>>>> Janet

  72. waterfalls29 January 15, 2014


    4 classics albums with huge sales and very good critics. with subjects like domestic violence, educations,drugs, a***, racism, homosexuality, s**, empowerment , with strong afro-american image ( velvet rope, got’il it’s gone music video etc)

    Beyonce is better singer but not artist (visual, dance, music ( thanxs to JIMMY JAM & TERRY LEWIS) , lyrics, idendity)

    performance are different , dance moves are more sophisticated for janet, beyonce use more her voice. Beyonce is tina turner on stage. Janet is a Jackson.

    Beyonce is influenced by Janet (mentions and tribute act : naughty girl in the beyonce experience, mtv icon janet, ring the alarm VMA) not Janet by Beyonce

  73. DIGGER BEY January 15, 2014


  74. Staytrue January 15, 2014

    Even after Beyonce lip syncing at the inaugaration, the Bey Hive still think she performs live every time. I can name a few other performances where Beyonce lip. She lipped the performance where she announced the pregnancy.

  75. FormerlyFromTokyo January 15, 2014

    Born to Die is actually her third album. They just like to pretend those other two albums don’t exist.

  76. JoeJoe January 15, 2014

    Y’all talking about Beyonce giving voice and dancing but Christina Aguilera does the same but sings better. Beyonce don’t want it with Christina when it comes to vocals which is why you’ll probably never see them on stage together. There’s a reason why Etta James dissed Beyonce and praised Christina when they both sang her song “At Last”. Anyway Janet is the Queen and the best. All Beyonce has over Janet is the voice. Her dancing can’t compare to Janet nor her stage presence or attitude or emotion that Janet gives when performing

  77. FierceRobert January 15, 2014


  78. DQ January 17, 2014

    I see people arguing over Beyoncé & Janet. I’m a huge fan of both and I always have been. Janet is an amazing performer & so is Beyoncé. But let’s be honest, Beyoncé is the better performer. Beyoncé can dance & sing plus she has the stage presence along with s** appeal. Everyone is saying oh Janet was a way better dancer but dancing isn’t everything. Janet has the s** appeal, the presence, and the dance moves but lacked a voice. The fact that she lacked in vocals will always put Beyoncé ahead of her. You need all the elements to be a well rounded entertainer & Beyoncé has them all.

  79. Marcus January 17, 2014

    Please give me some of what you are smoking!

  80. Nia January 29, 2014

    Let’s be clear here. I love me some Ms. Jackson and always will. I also enjoy Beyoncé from time to time as well. This Beyoncé and Janet debate is unfair depending on which angle your coming from. Let’s keep in mind that Beyoncé is 32. Janet is 48!! Of course Beyoncé is able to give just a bit more but even at 48, Janet will put up a hell of a fight. Now, if we were to put them head to head with a 32 year old Janet and Beyoncé. Come on now! JANET FREAKING JACKSON!

  81. Kyra December 25, 2014

    Janet Jackson is better than Beyonce when it comes to being a artist. For Beyonce she do to much hair flipping and booty shaking. Janet would kill beyonce in a dance contest, her music is better and has a meaning to them, and also her voice is not annoying.
