  1. I think Janet & Madonna is on the same level except Madonna is older than Janet and Madonna has released more albums than Janet, but don’t forget Janet & Madonna were rivals back in the 80’s and Janet stayed on top, she has won more awards and is a better dancer and has broken many boundaries for black & Whites just like her brother. I don’t see them being the same because Janet is a hard core dancer, and Madonna can not dance. I like both of them but prefer Janet’s music & dancing style better than I do Madonna’s.

  2. Madonna is the queen of pop. Janet is the queen of irrelevance. Bitch hasn’t had a hit since 2001. Couldn’t even headline the Superbowl by herself, had to leave the stage twice so Diddy and Kid Rock could perform, too. Madonna, on the other hand, is there for the entire halftime. And she won’t flash a boob, though it wouldn’t ruin her career because she’s actually smart and doesn’t apologize for controversy.

    Good luck with your next global flop, Janet. I’m sure you’ll get a U.K. number one eventually… lmao.

    1. @YourMadgesty actually, Janet’s last hit was in 2008 when Feedback cracked the top 20. You can’t even compare album sales. Both of their last albums didn’t sell well. Madonna hasn’t been pulling out hits, so before you GO MADGE crazy, relax a bit. Being a bitch doesn’t make you a better artist.

      I like both artists. They’ve contributed alot with fashion, music and dance. I personally like Janet more than Madonna.

    2. Janet doesn’t need a UK number one, Together Again has outsold ALL of Madonna’s UK number ones, go check… Music is not a popularity contest, its about real talent. Both aren’t vocalists, but Janet has the better tone to her voice, Janet is undeniably the better live performer, Madonna could NEVER do a tour like the one Janet is currently doing every night, with no special effects, just Janet. She is more emulated by artists of today Beyonce, Britney, Ciara, Rihanna are all more Janet inspired than Madonna. The only thing Madonna is better at than Janet is being a media whore. Oh and about Janet and the superbowl, you do know Madge is getting the help of Nicki Minaj and M.I.A right?? Both are great artists, I fail to see why people feel the need to bring down one artist to big up their own.

    3. Madonna couldnt headline the Superbowl by her old ass self thats why she used like 18 people to try and make that performance happen. She almost fell 15 times, she obviously lipped and again she proved she couldnt dance. THE STAGE WAS MORE INTERESTING THAN HER! Janet Jackson’s last hit on billboard was in 2008 so SIT with the bull. The fact of the matter is Madonna used sexuality her ENTIRE career and that ship been sailed. Janets first 4 albums werent focused on sex at all. Janet dances and sings better. Shes more talented pure and simple. Madonna is a copy of Grace Jones’ style and old Marilyn Monroe poses. Not to mention she stole the concept for “Vogue” from Malcolm McClaren. I have love for Madonna but dont ever sit here and believe she sings or dances better than Janet Jackson.

  3. Anyone that honestly thinks Janet is better than Madonna in any way, shape or form (except dancing) really needs to get things sorted out… Madonna is the person that paved the way for Janet… Isn’t it ironic how Janet “discovered” her sexuality on her album Janet just six months after Madonna released her album Erotica and her book Sex? Come on guys… I couldn’t believe it when Janet said in an interview that her music has “class” and Madonna’s doesn’t when Janet’s music is just as, if not more, sexual than Madonna’s gets… (“Your smooth and shiny feels so good against my lips sugar” from the song “If” and “he’s got a nice package all right, guess I’m gonna have to ride it tonight,” from “All for You”, just two of many examples of Janet’s lyrical content having “class.” Just about every song Madonna has ever released sounds so far ahead of its time (“Like a Prayer”, “Vogue”, “Ray of Light”, “Music”) while most of Janet’s songs (every song released from her “Control” album, everything from “Rhythm Nation 1814” except the title track, which I’ll admit was totally brilliant, by the way, etc.) sounds totally dated. Madonna totally surpasses Janet as far as artistry is concerned. Has Janet ever come up with an Erotica, a Like a Prayer or, dare I say it, a Ray of Light? Never. Madonna could record a hell of a ballad (I’m thinking something like “Live to Tell” “I’ll Remember” or “Take a Bow”) and if I’m not mistaken Janet hasn’t recorded ANY ballads. All Janet is really good for artistically is a good dance song now and then, and the occasional sexy slow jam (something Madonna made popular too, think “Justify My Love.”) Janet Jackson also isnt the first artist to come up with a music video that showed any kind of nudity, Madonna did that too. Janet always follows Madonna’s lead so she really has very little artistic credibility compared to Madonna. Madonna’s just better. She’s original, she’s paved the way for every female artist to have the ability to express themselves in whatever way they want to. She was a pioneer. Janet is one of the people she paved the way for. Like someone else said, Janet is to Madonna as The Monkeys are to The Beatles. So all of you people saying that Janet is better than Madonna, your either too ignorant to know what you’re actually talking about or you’ve got something against the her. Madonna herself doesn’t even talk about this debate because she doesn’t have to. She herself already KNOWS who she is. I don’t have anything against Janet, but Madonna is the clear winner here. I actually kind of think it’s laughable that we are even talking about this.
