What a cunt. Glasgow tickets were going for £30 on StubHub today. I'll just get Mariah tickets then.
Is it just me that finds that Glasgow video (and her generally, to be perfectly honest) a tiny bit terrifying? Like a puppet from a shoddy found-footage horror movie.
She should probably just support Latoya on a jaunt around mid-sized gay pubs if she wants to tour the UK.
The woman is a JOKE. *deletes everything except The Velvet Rope*
Why am I always DPing?
(and I still can't get on the Moopy Hot 100)
Is she STILL SICK? Poor Janet
Front block, Row M no less
All the touts on the resale websites are currently panic selling. Discounts galore.
It's a good thing.
OMG perhaps she really is at DEATH'S DOOR
Hate to say I TOLD YOU SO.
But I TOLD YOU SO.

... At much smaller venues probably, or half the price as they should have been in the first place.
Thing is, we aren't sure she's not actually PROPERLY ILL or anything?
Being terminally shit is no excuse.
She might be on her LAST LEGS!
I think she might actually be dead
She probably needs to bath in the blood of one of the maids from her dungeon.
Were there ever any more maid murder murmurings? Maybe one of them turned bad and got her with a Stanley
Cancels the UK shows but still playing the RACES in DUBAI
We can HOPE!
WHAT a CUNT
I expect she's going to Dubai to gather a new selection of maids to soothe her as the TRAGIC END approaches
Presumably because she's in the UAE they'll have to cut out 95% of the FANNY ANTHEMS on the setlist meaning an easy shift for OUR JANFT.
I was thinking when I saw that Cyndi Lauper was doing a few dates, how funny it is that Cyndi can still tour comfortably in the UK despite not having had a proper hit single or album in much longer than Janet.
Which then got me wondering if Janet's problem is that she only makes sense in an arena environment? Cyndi can play mid-sized venues and stand behind a mic and sing, but so much of what Janet does is predicated on lip-syncing to complex dance routines that probably wouldn't translate on a smaller stage?
That and of course Cyndi is actually willing to do the talk show circuit to flog tickets.
Apparently only 15% of her European tickets were sold
Serves her right.
From YouTube videos she BARELY dances these days either.
Completely different artists and not comparable in any shape or form. For one, Cyndi Lauper has had enduring hit singles in this country and Janet Jackson hasn't. And also Cyndi Lauper has a reputation as a consistent and professional live performer and is respected as a musician, whilst Janet Jackson's reputation is that of a lip-synching slut. She's a joke.
I've seen Cyndi Lauper live and she's fantastic.
And Cyndi Lauper was never a Janet Jackson contemporary so I don't really see where the comparison is coming from.
The comparison is obvious. They're both pop singers whose careers started in the 80s who haven't had a hit in a long time.
If she's selling 15% of arenas, I'm sure Janet might be able to sell out a few town halls in the provinces as well.
Not really. Well then why compare her to Cyndi Lauper and not, say, Bruce Springsteen or Bon Jovi - or anyone else whose career started in the 80s and hasn't had a hit in a long time? Or is it just because they're both female? Which, may I add, does not make the comparison any more valid or obvious.
Anyway, my point is that Janet Jackson has never had a reputation as a consistent live performer in this country. So comparing her to any artist who does have a good reputation as a live performer (e.g. Cyndi Lauper) is not valid nor obvious.
Oh do shut up.
Surely if there IS a problem with the comparison, is that it's TOO obvious?
Apparently 17% in The Netherlands!
Yes, I suppose that is my point. And therefore it is pointless.
If you really think there's a closer comparison between Janet Jackson and BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN you really need to up your meds.
Janet and Cyndi presumably share a broadly similar audience (Gays, women) and while Cyndi has more iconic hits, Janet has had more and more recently, so I think it broadly evens out.
Though why I should even have to justify an offhand comment...
Whatever. You missed my point, and I probably missed yours but there's no need to get personal like that especially when I'm not and nor have I ever been on any "meds" or telling me to shut up just because I disagree with you. Grow up.
No doubt just as soon as these dates are rescheduled, she'll sell out the Delft University Student Union in literally weeks!
Apparently the London date had sold quite well though - I presume that means over 25%.
A night or two at the Eventim Apollo, then...
I was going to suggest G-A-Y Late but I'm not sure how she'd go down with London gays these days actually.
Oh please give me a link to this info!
