Beyoncé : Janet influenced MJ

Janet influenced MJ

Let's not kid ourselves here. Dangerous was very Rhythm Nation like and some of Bad's sounds were very Control ish.

Re: Janet influenced MJ

*Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam influenced MJ

Re: Janet influenced MJ

*Prince influenced M1c84J.

Re: Janet influenced MJ

They should've collabed. Would've been legendary.

Re: Janet influenced MJ

I think they all kinda influenced each other. I'd say Madonna influenced Janet…she certainly got her act together post-Like a Virgin.

Cheers!

Re: Janet influenced MJ

Prince also influenced Madonna. In fact, all of the things Madonna is credited for being "groundbreaking" for in the 1980s seems to have been taken from Princce's Vanity 6

Re: Janet influenced MJ

Mhmm. I've always thought that early Madonna was heavily influenced by Prince's Dirty Mind album.

Re: Janet influenced MJ

I posted an earlier quote concerning the clear similarities regarding Vanity 6 and Madonna.


Though the sexually empowered pop femmes of today are often deemed daughters of Madonna…Vanity 6s eponymous debut album of unbridled, unapologetic female lust and sexual empowerment dropped a year before Madonnas debut, which was positively tame in comparison. And the trio rocked lingerie as stage-wear long before cone bras were a gleam in Madonnas (and Gaultiers) eyes.

Re: Janet influenced MJ

Erm, Vanity 6 might've been trampier than Madonna, but to say "all" she's credited for they did before is a ridiculous stretch.

Also, they were Prince's puppets. She was in control of her own career and image.

Re: Janet influenced MJ

Exactly.1ebc

Re: Janet influenced MJ

That's kind of my point with Vanity 6. Prince heavily influenced what Madonna did in the 1980s.

Re: Janet influenced MJ

David was her main muse for her beginnings

Re: Janet influenced MJ

Even saying he *heavily* influenced her is a stretch. I'm sure she liked what he did, and they had that fling; but she was more1c84 notably influenced by Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hynde because they were tough, cool women, and by all the (visual/street) artists that were part of the scene she came out of.

And as rebl above me said Bowie was her biggest influence in terms of how she handled her career and creative output- constantly morphing and working with new collaborators.

Re: Janet influenced MJ

I guess no one looked at my other post. She was influenced by other people but also Prince's Vanity 6.

That whole lingerie on stage thing that Madonna frequently employed seems to have been taken from Vanity 6:

Bowie, Donna Summer, Debbie Harry and Grace Jones all say HI.

Re: Janet influenced MJ

It kinda leaves a weird taste on her.
