  1. Miss Diana Ross

    Does anyone think her legacy is underrated because the Supremes catalog is more revered than her solo work (despite Diana being the sole singer on many of the Supremes hits)? It seems the Supremes work overshadows her solo work at this point.
  2. Bedtime Stories - 23th Anniversary

    Never read this article when it was first written three years ago, but very interesting read: https://noisey.vice.com/en_us/article/69eyz6/madonna-bedtime-stories-20th-anniversary-sex-sexuality-feminism
  3. Whatever it was, Whitney did come to respect M a lot in the end. Wasn't one of the last known footage of Nippy dancing and cheering on M's Superbowl performance? Nippy also defended M at one point when an interviewer was clearly trying to get her to say something shady about her in the late 90's.
  4. Janet Jackson thread

    Had it not been for Herb Ritts telling her to lose some weight and to wear a pair of jeans with a crop top in the LWNDWY video, she would have never explored her sexuality on the janet. album (and ever since then).
  5. Bedtime Stories - 23th Anniversary

    That 4 album streak from LAP through ROL is amazing - that decade-long period is probably the most profound in her entire career.
  6. Bedtime Stories - 23th Anniversary

    Indeed - it seems like Erotica/Sex were the climax of everything she had been building to for the first decade of her career. After that, she may have been exhausted and unsure of what to do next. She went back to Pat Leonard for I'll Remember, started sessions with Shep, and then shifted gears towards more contemporary R&B producers for the final project. Very interesting time...
  7. Bedtime Stories - 23th Anniversary

    It would have been interesting to see how this album would have panned out had she not had the backlash from Erotica/Sex and what direction she would have gone in. I know Shep was involved in the beginning stages of this project, but she (wisely) decided to walk away. Side note - I'll Remember was incredibly important to her career and came at a pivotal time, IMO. She needed a classic Pat Leonard collaboration to remind people why they loved her music, and it was successful in that regard.
  8. Bedtime Stories - 23th Anniversary

    The back to back successes of I'll Remember (this song especially), Secret, and Take A Bow really helped soften her image and potentially save her commercial career in the US. I don't think it can be underestimated how important this era was with helping her get to the great place she was in during the late 90's/early 00's.
  9. Bedtime Stories - 23th Anniversary

    Very overlooked/slept on album coming in-between Erotica and ROL.
  10. Let's start one for LAP's 30th anniversary in 2019 now as well!
  11. Janet Jackson thread

    Kurt always seemed to see right though Janet's resentment of Madonna.
  12. On a related note, I think Kurt was also quite fond of Madonna himself. I do remember MTV asking him about her in an interview once, but can't remember exactly what he said.
  13. Janet Jackson thread

    Going back to TVR - at the time of its release, I do recall the reviews being very lukewarm. I think the biggest complaint from critics was that the album was too "overproduced," "contrived," and "long." It also still seems to be generally overlooked - I don't see as many pieces written about the 20th anniversary of its release, there are some, but not like those that were written when Control, Rhythm Nation, and janet. celebrated milestone anniversaries.
  14. On some weird, even during that altercation, I get the sense that Courtney respects Madonna and wishes she had the confidence and stability M's had in her life.
  15. Interesting, her three landmark albums all have milestone anniversaries in successive years - this year (Erotica), next year (ROL turns 20!), and 2019 (LAP turns 30!)
