Madonna defends Janet Jackson at the 46th annual Grammy awards calling out the hypocrisy of parents and children with TV

Recommended Posts

At the 46th Grammy awards,  held one week after the controversial Super bowl halftime show, which saw Janet Jackson basically get canceled right before our eyes,  Banned by MTV, a ban that basically lasted 4 years. Started a vendetta against her by disgraced CBS executive Les Moonves. 



It literally took her a good decade and basically denouncing ***uality in her music,  to be forgiven by the public and mainstream media.  


Two critically acclaimed tracks All Nite (Don't Stop) and 2008's Feedback (which basically foreshadowed the Ekectronic Dance music trend a year prior to lady gaga taking full credit) wasn't huge hits due to a permanent blacklisting,  Feedback however was her biggest hot 100 in 7 years, peaking at #19, her last really big hit was 2001's Someone to Call my lover which peaked at #3, from really her last album to have massive commercial success  2001's All for you. 


It was a huge water cooler topic, high school boys found it hot to have Free **** for a hot second. 


But Madonna was asked her thoughts. 


Here's what she said,  basically putting it up to the parents and blaming the media for the backlash,  calling it a double hypocrisy,  saying you allow violence and other stuff, but beat up a woman,  on something that became ***ualized,  though most woman want their breasts and nipples to be the same as men,  not ***ual, but normal.

On one hand, it's nice that Madge defended Janet especially since there were rumors that the two of them didn't get along.

On the other hand, Madge calling out the double standard about violence on television is itself incredibly hypocritical of her considering that some of her videos such as What It Feels Like For A Girl and the original American Life clip had a lot of violence as well.

Well im suprised that Madonna defended her since she and Janet had a lil rivalry back in the 90s.

But what she says is so true! 

Its not fair to beat up on Janet when it wasnt even her fault; it was Justin's.

I also feel like its cause she's black cause honestly Madonna has done more explicit shoots/performances and the SX book 

yet she never got banned or blacklisted but then again, she's white.

Its so sad how racism is still a thing in 2021 SMH :icant2_britney_nope_smh_head_shake_disappointed_everytime:
