Shots Fired? Did Taylor Swift Just Slam Janet Jackson?

Published: Monday 17th Nov 2014 by Sam

Taylor Swift is riding high atop of the Pop pack these days thanks to the gargantuan success of her new album ‘1989’.

However, her recent comments about the genre’s reigning queen Janet Jackson have us wondering if the 24-year-old is feeling a little too brazen for her own good.

Full story below…

Usually inoffensive (unless dishing on one of her past boyfriends), Swift appeared to break protocol during a newly published interview with Time Magazine.j

Speaking on what she wants her legacy to be, the starlet said:

I’m sure there will be things that my grandkids make fun of me for no matter what, but I’d really rather it be, “Look how awkward your dancing was in the ‘Shake It Off’ video! You look so weird, Grandma!” rather than “Grandma, is that your nipple?”


Is it us or does it seem like she’s referring to the now-infamous Superbowl accident which saw Jackson’s nipple exposed in 2004? Or could it be a broader reference to her rivals baring all?

We really hope it’s the latter.

Taylor has successfully sustained by being generally harmless and catering to her core demographic. As such, from where we’re standing, now is not the time, place, nor space to be trying to skew edgy or provocative; especially when discussing or even alluding to legends such as Janet.

Ms. Jackson’s talent, catalogue and success narrative are in another league and operate on a different platform of premium. Hence, we’re gonna need Ms. Swift to keep it all the way cute. Swiftly.

    Slow news day I see… clearly she means she never had to s** it up period

    • wow November 17, 2014

      Neither did Janet, fool. She became a s** symbol at 27, but covered all up again for Velvet Rope!!! Janet was doing very before 27!

    • FAF November 17, 2014

      the reach is real sam or w/e wrote this should be ashamed!!

    CLASSIC !!
    TGJ always creating stan wars and fuelling celeb beef where there is none to keep their irrelevant and unprofessional website running.

  3. Pablo November 17, 2014

    Saw this interview the other day and thought the exact same thing as Sam. The Taylor STANS needs to stop trolling under different screen names.

    Or you’re just trying to start sh*t…

  5. Dustin November 17, 2014

    You are so thirsty for drama. Why would she be referencing something that happened when she was like 10 years old? That was clearly a reference to Katy who sticks her chi chis out at any given opportunity. And considering the Diplo feud, implying it’s anything else is shoddy journalism.

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) November 17, 2014


  6. loveides November 17, 2014

    She could be referring about Madonna exposing herself during her tour.

    • PeaceMaker November 17, 2014

      or Rihwhore

  7. Bootylover November 17, 2014

    Obviously she was talking about the current Pop star. Not janet. You people are reaching for the stars darling

  8. King King November 17, 2014

    Sammantha stop being messy. She speaking on her class. Plenty of girls in the industry show thier n****** and ass. . . This is such a pointless ass post…

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) November 17, 2014

      U DO realize that u didnt have to stop by don’t u? U biitch

  9. Arie November 17, 2014

    I’m sure she is taking shots at the likes of Miley, Rihanna etc. Janet has been inactive in the music scene for quite some time so it would be pointless for her to take shots at her. Taylor is vying for the queen of Pop tittle so she is trying to eliminate the competition by discrediting them.

  10. Mother November 17, 2014

    Get a grip Sam, you queen. Obviously she was talking generally. I’m sure Janet’s not the only pop artist to have bared her n****** at some point. Stop being so extra and messy, god dammit!

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) November 17, 2014

      Thx for stopn by, wwhore

      • Mother November 17, 2014

        Do I know you?

  11. wow November 17, 2014

    I think that she was talking about another person, but no one is trying to see her nips anyway. She has no b******!!!

  12. XYZ November 17, 2014

    oh, shut the f*** up.

    she could be referencing to either Janet, Madonna, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna or whoever. All of them showed their n****** once… or she could have just said it without meaning anyone of the aforementioned…she was just giving an example…

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) November 17, 2014

      A b and C yo ass off this gotdamn post m*********!!

  13. Pops November 17, 2014

    Why are Taylor’s followers finding it hard to believe? Can she do no wrong to y’all? Doesn’t the article weigh up what she said instead of saying she shaded verbatim?

    Reading is key

    • FAF November 17, 2014


  14. Del Bey November 17, 2014

    Taylor is of reptilian decent, specifically hand picked by the shadow government as the pinnacle face of white washing media, Adele and Taylor were selected to be musics leading artists, taking over michael, Whitney and beyonces sales, the illuminati are in full force

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) November 17, 2014

      Yo fav is a drunk

    • Jamon November 17, 2014

      Beyonce never sold like Michael and Whitney…there 2 of the biggest selling musicians of all time. No shade

      • Jamon November 17, 2014

        You mean Modonna or Mariah Carey

  15. tits mcgee November 17, 2014

    Y’all are reading to much into the comment. Taylor and Janet are good. Taylor attended Janet’s Up close and personal tour, and Janet, sent Taylor flowers after the Kanye thing.

    She was making a general reference. No one looks at Janet and sees grandma..

    Taylor would never…

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) November 17, 2014

      Thank u hunty!!

  16. pat November 17, 2014

    Reaching. Taylor loves Janet and has spoken fondly remember of her several times when Janet sent her flowers after the kanye incident. But u tried it tho

  17. christinastherealtalent November 17, 2014

    This beotch best check herself before she wrecks herself!

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) November 17, 2014

      How is ur career doin these days hun? 😐

  18. JOHNVIDAL November 17, 2014

    That was for Sam! 🙂 From Mariah in her last stop in Australia. And to all the haters (that Wendy b**** nobody knows out of the USA and all those people).

  19. Pop November 17, 2014

    wth is wrong with this site. Janet fans don’t let your chain get jerked.

  20. Late November 17, 2014

    I think she was just making a general comment about some of the other pop stars who have felt the pressure to show more skin and be provocative in order to gain sales.

    Janet is not the only star who has had a wardrobe malfunction, intentional or not, and she won’t be the last. I think you guys are just reading too much into this.

  21. Keri Qween November 17, 2014

    The Absolute REACH with this post!

  22. ronnoc November 17, 2014

    Please.. i hate t swift, but she wasn’t talking about janet. Madonna recently showed some nip too, remember? I think she’s just talking about the sexuality of the biz in general.

  23. Sean November 17, 2014

    Take a seat you bitter Qween Sam. The genres reining queen is Madonna you idiot. The shot was prob fired at her and all the other pop girls that show their tits. I like Janet but the only place she is refered to as the pop queen is on this black artist focused blog and in a recent bs vh1 poll that nobody knew about besides Janet’s fans since they have time since their fav hasn’t done s*** in years

    • tits mcgee November 17, 2014

      They have both been called QOP since the ’80’s, so get over it. Not only on the ‘black’ blogs, so whatever.

      Your right Madonna is the queen of showing tittiees and her dusty m*****, for the world to see from the start until now.

      So I think Taylor may have been referencing Madge, since she said grandma. Stands to reason…

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) November 17, 2014

      Fu ck u. Janet the queen of pop rock and r&b biitch

    She would want to STFU and worry about Katy Perry and her boyfriend attacking her weak a$$ and learn her place when it comes to the ICON Miss.Jackson!!!

      Where’s Cedric’s place tho? She still eating Keri’s dust?

  30. FutureCIARA November 17, 2014

    I want to give her benefit of the doubt and say she was generally speaking

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) November 17, 2014

      I dont

  31. Rosie November 17, 2014

    Haha at this tired ass site. Always creating stan wars for no reason. I doubt Taylor was talking about Nipplegate.

  32. S****** Blonde November 17, 2014

    The fact that Janet fans associate the word ‘nipple’ with her, says a lot.

    • tits mcgee November 17, 2014

      Yet when we hear ‘beaver’ ‘cunnt’ or ‘bittch’, we associate that with Megatron, so…

      • S****** Blonde November 17, 2014

        I’m not the one freaking out over this.

      • tits mcgee November 17, 2014

        Well who is? I’m calm, just having fun and telling it as I see it hun..

        Xoxo. 🙂

        I don’t care both Janet and the decepticon, have made their mark, so it’s whatever.

  33. metzo November 17, 2014

    she’s not necessarily talking about Janet. I mean she could be talking about Rihanna, Miley or Gaga, all of who have already shown their tittiies and n****** yo the whole world.

  34. Navy Nick November 17, 2014

    I honesty don’t think she’s talking about Janet….just all the nakedness U see rite now, in general.

  35. Theman November 17, 2014

    Someone’s trying to get some hits.. Desperate !!

  36. Taylor swift number 1 fan!! November 17, 2014

    Taylor doesn’t need to start crap to get people talking about her. She obviously wasn’t talking about anyone specific. She just wants to be known for her music, not about stripping off etc.

    • tits mcgee November 17, 2014

      Exactly. Hey kid! No one fell for this speculation. Janet and Taylor are cool.


      • Taylor swift number 1 fan!! November 17, 2014

        I’m glad of that. Don’t like seeing taylor being spoken of badly!
        Hopefully the next taylor swift post will be more positive:)

      • tits mcgee November 17, 2014

        Agreed. 🙂

  37. ~The Arcade~ November 17, 2014

    Knowing how acceptable it is to expose your bare body parts, I’m presuming she’s calling out the kk’s, rihs, mileys, nickis of the entertainment business :/ which I can commend her for…

  38. OrangeYouGladIDidntSayBanana November 17, 2014

    If anything I detected Bey shade lol
    Taylor says she doesn’t look up to any female musicians since none of them have done what she wants to do (I’m assuming maintaining a family friendly image) when Mrs.Carter over here commands her fellow musicians to “bow down, b******” and is constantly praised by her competitors

    It’s just interesting to see a modern act not cite Beyoncé as a role model

    • Sass November 17, 2014

      Bye @ the reach. Taylor only recently praised Beyonce. And Beyonce doesnt force anyone to cite her, its not her fault they do!

  39. Unbiased November 17, 2014

    Legends like Janet, Madonna, Mariah have nothing to prove at this point.
    If Janet read this she would roll her eyes and cuddle back up to her billionare man.
    Janet is a game-changer. Can you really say the same about Taylor or any woman right now?

  40. Sass November 17, 2014

    She could be shading a number of stars who have shown their naked tits. I doubt it was specifically Janet.

  41. Everyone’s A Critic November 17, 2014

    Ever heard of general statements… This article is a flop!

  42. Derrick83 November 17, 2014

    Taylor loves and respects Janet. As a matter of fact, Janet sent her flowers after that Kanye incident and Taylor fanned out about it.

  43. ontherun November 17, 2014

    Reach… this is about the young pop girls i.e. miley and Not about Janet

  44. J.E November 17, 2014

    Well taylor l=oves Beyonce and Christina Aguilera, so im ok with that.

  45. Bella3 November 17, 2014

    No she was not talking about Janet. Lol Most people love Janet…………. But that BS about her being the Queen Of Pop – “her recent comments about the genre’s reigning queen Janet Jackson” is so hot mess I can’t. Lol Madonna is the Queen Of Pop! Janet knows that, The world knows that’s & Frobes Magazine knows that. Lol So Princess Taylor is unbothered. Lol

    • Greg_N_Greed November 18, 2014

      You do know Janet has never claimed that she was ever the Queen of Pop. However, she’s been referred to that all through her career by the ppl and music industry. Hell, Janet didn’t even think she was an icon and legend at one time in her career. You ppl claimed her that title for her not her. Look where Janet is at now in her life. Do you really think she gives a f*** about a title. The b**** been living a loyal life since birth. If anything she’s above that.

  46. Stephy Tha Lambily November 17, 2014


  47. Greg_N_Greed November 18, 2014

    As for Taylor, soooo young, so naïve. I don’t even take Taylor seriously. She looks like a amateur who say things and dont even know wat da hell they said 3 secs later. Janet has nothing take offense about.

  48. MichaelJacksonKingOfPopStan November 18, 2014

    This b-i-t-c-h lost a good moment to keep it in mute. Don’t let those album sales fool u lil Ms. Taylor No Ass Stiff… Janet would drag ur non existent behind just with one dance move!!! Don’t come for her unless she sends for you!! I know Janet will keep it classy and not answer to this basic ass b-I-t-c-h… as Aretha said “Gowns beautiful gowns” and that’s pretty much it!

  49. bella November 19, 2014

    JANET>>>>> taylor. Taylor us great at what she does, no doubt but Janet is in a different league. She is a phenomenal artist and a music queen.
