    Janet is a GENIUS. She is using all the $$ from that divorce to jump start her career with buying all these awards and accolades. I see it sis. Buy the attention and get interest! We love it!

    • pat August 23, 2018

      Janet shade at this point just makes u look more miserable

    • Selah August 23, 2018

      Lmao! Janet has an extremely successful 40+ year career. She has EARNED every accolade that has and is coming her way. She doesn’t have to buy sh*t. Stupid troll.

    • Rasputia Latimore August 24, 2018

      Get lost dumb ass. Janet has never bought any awards. She is one of the few artists to have been nominated for grammies, win the awards, and not even bother attending to receive the award. You are bitter and jealous because she effortlessly gets her awards just for having natural talent and popularity while your favs struggle to get awarded anything and whatever awards they have to buy. Hence, why you made such a ridiculous and idiotic accusation.

    20 million views already? Wow.

  12. Keith August 23, 2018

  13. Ka August 23, 2018

    Well deserved, about damn time! Niki before janet lol I guess they needed someone at that moment. Congrates Queen!!!

  14. well now August 23, 2018

    I love Janet with all my heart and appreciate all of our legends/Icons if im a fan or not because of the work they have put in. It sad its taken soo long for the music world to come around and see Janet for who she truly is and not the super bowl. Moving forward I just hope Janet does more promo for Made for now as it has falling to #29 on the itunes in the USA and daily streaming charts are not showing MFN in any of the global 200 charts for daily totals, but its growing on people and is a great video. No Janet and all our other greats have nothing to prove, but it would just be nice to see our older performers still having the success on the charts is all im saying. I do understand the music world and climate has changed a great deal and Janet has stayed true to who she is, but im sure we all want to see our favorite people on top. At any rate, congrats Janet and continue to receive your flowers now

      Janet is not worried about chart success she’s been there and done that.

    • Rasputia Latimore August 24, 2018

      Something is weird though. 20 million streams of the video means it should be charting already. Radio is not supporting it so far though which is a huge problem. It might be a little too pop for rnb stations and we all know pop stations play the same exact 20 songs in heavy rotation with no variation. Seems like the song might do better with two versions: one for rnb and one for pop.

    I don’t care what anyone says about Beyonce, I do believe she should have long time ago should have receive at least a humanitarian award ? by now and I don’t understand why haven’t she been honor yet? I know people are jealous of her but she has been for years given back throughout her career and rightfully deserves to be recognized and honored

    • Deyzz August 23, 2018

      I agree. Janet cannot touch her.
      If Janet performs, it better be JLo worthy.

      • Kenny August 23, 2018

        Beyonce can’t touch Janet

      • Morgan Lassiter August 23, 2018

        Janet at 52 years old run circles around Beyonce, and Bee knows it. Beyonce took notes from Empress Janet.

    • Morgan Lassiter August 23, 2018

      Sounds like you yellow jackets are jealous of a person that your favorite admires! #MadeForNow, not tomorrow,

      • Wanda August 24, 2018

        Yes, yes and yesssss….. LOVE IT!!!!!!! I couldn’t have said any better!

    • Rasputia Latimore August 24, 2018

      You are a fake Bey fan if you don’t know she has already won numerous awards, including humanitarian. Humble yourself and learn your queen girl.

  16. DanYiel Iman August 23, 2018

    I hope her fans support her latest album she’s preparing!!?

  17. Truth Dot Com August 24, 2018
