Jean M. Twenge wrote in My Generation: Why Today’s Young Americans Are More Confident, Assertive, and Empowered Than Ever, and More Miserable Than Ever, that his musical videos helped young women become more sexually liberated to an even greater extent, noting that only 3 percent of young women had oral s*x with men in the 1950s. However, by the middle of the 1990s, 75% of women between the ages of 18 and 24 had experienced cunnilingus. The trend was sparked by music videos by female artists, with Mary J. Blige and Janet Jackson strongly suggesting in their videoclips that men engage in oral s*x with women by pushing them on their heads until they are in the right position. as well as the political demands of truly liberated women,” citing TLC, Mary J. Blige, and Janet Jackson as examples of female artists who mimic the cinch in their videos. Images of her that are overly sexualized appear, along with views of her as white followers and a patriarchal view of male sexuality, rather than her own or ajena liberation.
Den Berry, CEO and President of Virgin Records, stated: “Janet is the complete embodiment of a super star on a worldwide scale. His artistic brilliance and personal appeal transcend geographic, societal, and generational barriers. Similar to this, Lee Trink, the executive of the same company, said: “Janet is a historical figure in our culture. She is one of those artists who people admire, imitate, and want to believe in. There aren’t many stars that surpass the test of time. A younger generation of musical artists have been influenced and inspired by his instrumental and artistic style. According to Sarah Rodman of the “Boston Herald,” “For every handshake, overexcitation, and addiction to melisma that there are outside imitating Mariah’s dog whistles, there are an equal number trying to match Janet’s burbling waves and fantastic piercing games, including Britney Spears, Aaliyah, and Destiny’s Child.” Gene Stout, a pop music critic, stated that “she has had a very broad influence on a younger generation of artists, from Jennifer Lopez to Britney Spears, who have heavily imitated Michael Jackson’s dance moves.” “USA Today’s” Elysa Garner wrote: “Jackson claims he is not offended by the brigade of only post-adolescent baby divas who have been influenced (and in some cases, famously copied) by his strong and animated choreography and the childish yet decidedly post-feminist artisticity that have long served as markers of his interpretive style.” The artists who are regarded as having followed their lead have been referred to as “Janet-come- lately’s”.
The magazine “Jet” stated that Janet’s “innovative stage performances during her international tours have validated her reputation as a world-class performer.”
According to Chris Willman of the “Los Angeles Times,” “the fascinating choreographies of the Ryhthm Nation World Tour reflect the pinnacle of what one can achieve in their style, a swift blending of movements that are rigidly ephemeral and delectably fluid.”
The Independent columnist Nicholas Barber stated in his review of The Velvet Rope World Tour that “Janet’s concerts are the pop equivalent of an exciting summer movie, with all the explosions, special effects, substitute sentimentalism, unrestricted editing, and the emphasis on the spectacle over the coherence that the term implies.”
When asked by “Los Angeles Times” reporter Robert Hilburn if she understood why people were referring to The Velvet Rope World Tour in terms of Broadway, Jackson replied, “I’m not from Broadway.
