    Janet looks great! and “Damita Jo” is a good album, I’m still getting used it but she’s got some great songs on here. I love “R&B Junkie” and both “Damita Jo” and “Sexhibition”, but my all time favorite on the album is “Like You Don’t Love Me,” but its soo hard finding the lyrics to that song… Soo if anyone can find those lyrics for me I would really appreciate it. THANKS! :-)

    Get your stuff straight cause Janet was never “booed” You need to get over comparing everyone to Madonna. She’s highly overrated and her and Janet are two different artists.

    I don’t know, everyone seems to think Madonna is an old crusty lady who needs to retire already. kissing Britney onstage doesn’t make her popular

    So, everybody thinks Madonna is old and crusty…:LOL..Look at this! New York: 6 shows at Madison Square Garden completely sold out in minutes Las Vegas: 2 Shows at MGM Grand sold out in a day Chicago: 4 shows sold out in minutes and several other sold out shows. You Madonna haters can take solace in the fact that her SECOND Philadelphia show still has some nosedive seats left where if you want, you can pay $100 and see what Madonna looks like from 5 miles away. MADONNA RULES. SHE IS THE ULTIMATE QUEEN. JANET IS A HAS-BEEN. MARIAH IS A HAS-BEEN. BRITNEY IS OK, BUT IS STILL TOO YOUNG IN HER CAREER TO BE QUEEN. CHRISTINA IS OK, BUT SINGS LIKE SHE HAS A FROG IN HER FACE. BEYONCE CAN’T SING WORTH SH**, did I miss anyone? Oh..they only female artist that beats Madonna is tha “talented” Jessica Simpson.
