    I may be bias in my thoughts, but I don’t think Janet Jackson deserves to be in the Rock and Roll hall of fame. I wasn’t a fan of her music which is why I am bias. My opinion doesn’t matter but I still feel like she shouldn’t be a contender. lol

      Oh, trust me – I hear you loud and clear! I’m a bit biased as well, and will only say that, in the whole list of contenders, she’s at the bottom of my list…so, your opinion matters!

        Haha thank goodness, someone else agrees! I was afraid I might see torches. 😛
        I wouldn’t have even thought to make her a contender, honestly, but that is show biz for ya, LOL

        ROFL – I wouldn’t even put Britney Spears on the list…same with Justin Bieber, LMAO!
        That definitely says something about different musical tastes, I’d say!

        Justin Bieber will be lucky to make this list, if he ever even becomes a contender, I might laugh! lmao- because then I will know our world is coming to an end 😛
        I don’t hate britney spears, but I don’t love her music either. We may differ in musical taste but we both agree Janet is at the bottom 😛 and that Justin making the list would mean music took a turn for the worse.
