    Cause he’s the greatest entertainer and largest pop star to ever roam this earth. On top of that to have your little sister be the greatest female entertainer as y’all both innovated the industry- there will never be another famous family to be so great

      I’m sorry Janet Jackson isn’t the best in her era a lot of artists out now sing circles around her!!🤦🏽‍♂️

      • Brent Christopher October 31, 2018

        If there was no JANET JACKSON, there would be NONE of the female pop or r&b stars of present day. Janet’s raw creativity, songwriting, and overall artistry are unmatched.

        @danyiel a lot of artists ousting Michael too.. but can they outperform her? Nope. Out innovate her? Nope.. out-originate her? Nope. You’re just pressed. Janet is THEE best of her era- PERIOD!

      • Brent Christopher October 31, 2018

        and furthermore, the artists out TODAY, are not of Janet’s era. Janet is in the 4th decade of her singing career and 5th of her acting performances. there are very FEW women who command the stage & screen effortlessly.

        @Brent and none as good AND FIERCLY as Janet! Especially at 52 okurrrrrr!

        Your just stupid .. well if you wanna put it that way then let me put it this way … If it was not for Michael success there would be no Janet ..plane and simple

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 31, 2018

        @Kevon if you’re going to call someone stupid, use the correct spelling. It’s ”you’re stupid” not “your stupid”. Michaels UBER success had nothing to do with Janet’s UBER success. Every single Jackson tried going solo, released singles and albums and tried starting a music career and only Michael and Janet succeeded. If it was “michaels success” that made Janet then Latoya, Reebie, Jackie, Marlon, Randy, Tito and Jermaine would have alllllll been successful because they all went solo. You don’t know ur music history. Janet is JANET.

        Janet packs more artisty and sonic creativity in her performances more than anybody after her generation. She > ur fav

      The Jackson Family legacy is unmatched. One day the world will realize that. I hope to see Jaafar, Austin Brown, 3T, and Billie Bodega have success for the current generation…
