    no, no it is not.

    Well, truth be told, it is not. She looks like she’s trying to do a very bad Eartha Kitt impersonation. And who came up with the idea of having her dance on top of a glass of milk while dropping droplets into said milk? They should be declared lactose intolerant. I wish she would just do some music as a 40-something woman instead of a teenybopper which she will never be again. Sometimes decorum is a good thing. Peace.

    Apologies on the multiple posting also!

  6. nope. No come back yet…

    Umm, no. I agree with Joel, shes just to damn old to be competing with the Britneys of the world. Too bad she doesnt truly have a singing voice or musical talent because she could have moved on to a truly different arena by now. But she is mired in trying to be 22 for the rest of her professional life.

    I think she should give herself over to just acting as she’s a cut above in that art. She would/could restore some self-respect.

    i wish she made a video that captured how beautiful she truly is. why would you cover all that goodness up in weird costumes and funky hair? i do not understand..

  9. Cube

    Was that a commercial for Kix cereal or the missing ‘Bring out The Gimp’ scenes from Pulp Fiction.

  10. Joya

    in a word…no.

  11. sammi

    YUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. AlliBaba1234

    Bo-ring. *yawn*

    Unfortnately, this video won’t do anything to revive her musical career. Not even close. You’d think that after her last two failures, she’d come up with something tighter. Oh well… I still love her.

  14. How is she trying to be a teenybopper “again”? Janet was NEVER a teenybopper. When she was these girls age (early 20s) she was making songs/videos like Rhythm Nation, Miss You Much and Lets Wait Awhile etc. Quality music. Don’t compare Ms. Jackson to these no talent broads today. lol

    ANYWAY.

    I LOVE THE VIDEO!

    Loved it…its too easy for armchair critics to simply pic things apart. For real..its hot, its now, its relevant, its sexy, and promising. No need to mention anyone else in the same breath. She’s doing what she does best..and what she did first. But it is Art ..her art…and people will always take jabs or not get thing, or not understand things. Thank god there’s no rap guest stars…thank god there’s no cheap bling…if I must do the armchair thing..its sorta like Rhythm Nation 2008. Lets see where she takes it, and enjoy the ride!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    She never fell out of stardom you asses. The video is great. Janet keep doingh your thing. These damn haterz can’t even talk they probably dont have no talent so they have to criticize you. JANET IS STILL #1.

    When will Janet realize that 1. she doesnt have to compete with thr Britne’s of the world b.c she is “Janet” 2. that just b/c he is great as your man, it doesnt make him great as your producer. She need to call up Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and remember how it all started.

  23. sexyback

    God I hope not. That was some stinky shit and as disgusting “as a first-day period.” What the hell kind of lyric is that anyway? Eww. And singing about said period on milk? I don’t even know what to make of that.

    So I will totally disagree with Angela, Lukas, and Jay. I will assume you’re blind, as well as deaf. Everyone else is right. That was crap.

  24. sexyback

    To further express my distaste, let me say that I would rather watch Britney’s VMA performance… in HD… on a wide-screen… than hear/watch this video again.

  25. joan durtz

    Maybe not a comeback, but she is still JANET, and she can still dance her ass off.

  26. DJROB

    If the entire video had been built around the last 30 seconds or so, where she’s dressed in a tight red outfit with shorter hair and performing dance “stunts” with the white computer-generated balls, this video would have been “fiyah”! That part left me yearning for more (of that part). As for the remainder of the video – the first 3 minutes and 20 seconds – it’s pedestrian to slightly above average. MTV won’t play it, so she’ll have to rely on the Internet for exposure, which might kick it up the charts to a higher peak than the lead-off single from “20 Y.O.” – “Call On Me” (featuring Nelly), remember that one? (No. 19 pop, No. 1 R&B in Billboard)

  27. dancerjack

    sorry, i love it – maybe you think i’m deaf and blind, but i think it’s very daring to go against what people expect. i thought it was very ballsy to almost completely abandon the mold of “star in front of 10 back dancers.” there was very little of that, and her solo at the end in the red cat suit BEGS BEGS BEGS multiple watchings

  28. FuckYou Janethaters

    I like the video I bet the ones who dont like it is white! and you cant compare Janet to the nasty not talent drug adict shity spears,thats why that bitch looks a mess now.Janet can do what she wants you racist mofo’s.truth be told I hate white people.

    Janet needs to get a Dr DRe, Timbaland, and Neptunes track and a few more Jimmy Jam tracks and she could have a very very big comeback. Oh and maybe a TPain track. This video will not be on 106 and park for long it’s way to 90s pop

    hated this video. hope too much $ was NOT wasted on it. i agree with the writer who stated j needs to understand WHO she is and WHEN she is. j is NOT and never will again be 20. So the title sucks right off the bat. imho j is artistically dead. she comes off as having been deeply hurt (i.e. damaged) by her split from re. understandable, but (then again) she hit back with sonofagun. after that she should have stayed on point and in shape. when she failed to do so, the label lost interest in her and so did the public. she CAN comeback, but she needs the right creative team behind her in order to do so. i am available. #1? Push fast forward on the teeny shocker (sexy) content in her lyrics. a 40 Y.O. woman is so un-cute cooing “first day period”. just as brit came lame with “it’s [me] b*tch”. #2. ring up timbaland, pharrel, swizz beats-types, oh! and jay z.’s beatmasters. do NOT lookup jam, lewis & co. they are, as hilary duff (or is that miley cyrus…same diff) sings: “so yesterday”. next: take voice lessons so that you can SING and SPEAK ina tone that is not reminiscent of minnie mouse. u can already dance yo butt off, so, DANCE! I you croon a slow jam if should be on par with ciara’s promise. if i were on-board already, i would send j into the studio for a slick, thumpin, synth groove and pair it with a slimmed and stripped down, sexy, janet who did NOT sing about how young she wishes she still is but how optimistic and open she has become. its time for truly feel-food music from you j. u seem very sad concerning your personal life and its affecting your beats. let go of the past, truly let go, the anger, the hurt, the disappointment, the regret. accept that we all experience tough times in this life, but these are supposed to make us appreciate life, what we have, what we have been gifted with…MORE!
