      Janet is a legendary artist and a legendary advocate for the LGBT community. However, I feel like her stage show would be better with more masculine male dancers and more sexier female dancers. . If she insists on using these feminine male twinks as back up dancers simply because they are low budget then she should dress them in all black and have them in the far background because currently they are very distracting and they steal some of her limelight with their queeny ways. I’m sure people (gay and straight) would rather see masculine male backup dancers rather than these twinks. I’ll use the following live performances of “If” as an example since that it a sensual dance song about a woman and a man:

      1993 If Tour Performance (with sexier female dancers and masculine men):

        2011 Tour IF Performance (This is where the problem began with her dancers). The twink dancer looks too young and more feminine than Janet and it is affecting her overall stage appearance because the twink is distracting (check the youtube comments):

        2017 The Problem continued. Check the Youtube comments. It is distracting when you are watching Janet perform and your eyes have to naturally drift to the background dancers because you are trying to figure out who is a man and who is a woman:

        Solution: I think Janet should hire someone like Anthony Burrell. He has the experience and he has choreographed and danced for numerous artists like Beyonce and Mariah already. I feel like Janet is being cheap in hiring these dancers off the street instead of hiring dancers with professional industry reputations already. Janet is a legend and if she would just invest more in the tour it will pay off in the long run. I saw STOW and I loved every second of it but at the same time I remenisce about her higher budget tours like Velvet Rope and All For You which were better and more fitting for a legendary singer.

        Honestly, it’s the Gil influence that started to change the look of the dancers. He has too much say in Janet’s image, Tina needs to come back!?

    Seeing that this is her third time touring in support of her 2015 album, some new music would be a great project to get into… Just a thought.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ May 10, 2018

  7. John May 10, 2018

    I was hoping should would hopefully re-release Unbreakable Album with New extra tracks to accompany this Tour and give fans something fresh….?

    • Jacob May 10, 2018

      Well since she got cheap she would do that before giving yall a new album

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ May 10, 2018

        Jacobs mad

      • Jasmine May 10, 2018

        Janet is not cheap. She is working on a new album. Why have a re-release of a 2015 album when she can do a new album?

  8. DanYiel Iman May 10, 2018

    Oh ok ??..

  9. kim May 10, 2018

    at least jennifer lopez sometimes sings live or use a pre-recorded live track in the other hand janet put the album version in her performances just like britney.
    jlo = performer
    janet = dancer
