Janet- Time Travel Tuesday

Recently, I got bored with my workouts. (I get bored with everything!) So I decided to start dancing for exercise. (This decision was greatly influenced by the 4 Bring It On -yes 4!!!- movies and pretty much every other English language dance movie which I've been watching over and over for the last month. With a few musicals sprinkled in for good measure.)

And when you decide you're going to dance, while drowning yourself in dance movies. It's only a matter of time before you end up on youtube. And if it's awesome dance vids you're craving, you'll eventually end up on Janet Jackson.

The woman is 3 and a half decades of dance awesome!

The Pleasure Principle in 1986 pretty much set the bar for all female dance vids to come.

And then she took it up again with Rhtym Nation in 1989

Together Again 1997

All for you- from 2000

Also, what many people might not realise is that Janet starred in 3 films which debuted at #1: Poetic Justice (which I rewatched last week), Nutty Professor II: The Klumps and Why Did I get Married? Pretty good, for someone who doesn't profess to be an actress!

Did you have pics or videos attached to this blog? For some reason I'm not seeing them. (insert really sad puppy face)

I know what you mean about watching dance movies and then you just have to do it yourself even though you won't even do it even 1/2 as good as the people you're imitating lol.

Yesterday morning and evening I danced my little tushy off to Rhianna's Rude Boy, Britney Spears' Circus, and Love's Let me Lick You Up and Down.

Fun fun fun!

I have always loved her. That girl can dance! We have watched her concerts on HBO and danced the entire time!

The older videos bring back awesome memories from my childhood. I was in awe of her dancing.
