Rock Hall of Fame 'SLEEEPS' on #JanetJackson again! [details]
Despite a STRONG push from her fans on SOCIAL MEDIA, the Rock & Roll hall of Fame decided to PASS on the Janet Jackson again. The 'No Sleeep' singer will not be inducted this year--making it the 2nd year that she has been PASSED OVER.
Now some, including me will argue that Janet Jackson is by far one of the most successful women in music and has sold more than 100 million records and helped break down color barriers on MTV and beyond and has more of an impressive resume say than a group like Journey, but alas, the powers that be saw otherwise.
Jackson's candidacy is a hotly contested one. Some rock diehards refuse to acknowledge her as a snub, considering she doesn't meet their definition of "rock." However, Jackson's resume stacks up favorably to previous inductees like Madonna, Donna Summer and her brother Michael Jackson.
Other nominees who seemed to have a somewhat decent chance of getting inducted, but weren't, include Jane's Addition, Chic, The Cars, J. Geils Band, Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk.
Fans we will have to RALLY together and try again NEXT YEAR!
