JD's BS at Virgin Records
Ok, Janet's album wasn't a huge or normal success. I don't understand why everyone is blaming Jermaine Dupri though. He did the best with what he had. He might look like a little elf but the nigga can't do Majic. Janet aint no Mariah. There is only so much you can do with a person who ACTUALLY can't sing. Janet was great in her day. You loved her for being a sexy, young, great dancer/performer. Well, she's still in shape and she's still a lovely lady, but over time that cute airy voice has turned into the 40 year old voice of a chic who was never a songstress. ("She's not a songstress" -- NY from Flava of Love...but I digress). I really like Janet's video for Excited though. I know it took a lot of Geritol and exercise to get thru that one.

I don't think this was necessarily the best decision to make. But J&J are sticking together. Maybe they can be the next (mostly) sober Bobby and Whitney?
