I started this piece at least seven times. I couldn’t figure out from which angle I wanted to attack. The most obvious would have been to list all of Janet Jackson’s accomplishment, but I don’t really have the time it would take to list them all. Then I thought I would approach it by telling you how much of your current fave’s image borrows from Janet’s. But that might bring on delusional hate. Not that I really care about an attack from other stans, it’s more of the time issue, again. Somewhere during that seventh intro, it hit me. Regardless of personal opinions or fickle consumers, Janet Jackson’s legacy is firm. It needs no defending. It continues to show its presence on the charts, television and in the trends of today. Janet Jackson is a legend. Janet Jackson is an icon. Janet Jackson is just janet. and there will never be another like her. So, on Janet’s 47th birthday, (inorite), I’ll just let her speak for herself as she has done for 40 plus years and will continue to do better than I or any imitators could possibly try.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MS. JACKSON!
