Dupri Hails 'Trendsetter' Jackson

Rap mogul JERMAINE DUPRI has lavished praise on partner JANET JACKSON's forthcoming album for continuing to set the standard for her female contemporaries to follow. Dupri, who plans to wed the singer in September (06), insists new record 20 YEARS OLD will leave other pop stars lagging behind. Speaking at a press presentation for the album on Monday (24JUL06), producer Dupri said, "Only Janet records sound like her. I always look and think, 'Where's BEYONCE going to be in 20 years?' It's hard for me to visualise. I don't put them on the same plane. "Janet doesn't go for the same typical cars and street videos. She was the reason we started to watch TV. She's back to her full capacity and blowing it out to the level. "Artists just need to make good music. I said to Janet, 'All you got to do is sing.' "BRITNEY and CHRISTINA (AGUILERA) are all copycats of one person."

This clown didnt learn about opening his mouth about Dre??? I aint no huge fan, but Beyonce is about to hit 10 years in the public eye, so I'm sure she'll be around another 10, after she takes of a few like Janet did. Janet was my girl, but her dime points dropped after she hooked up with scrams. Call me a hater or whatever, but like Chris Rock said, Janet with him?? Damn, even I had a chance. Stick to ad libbing all over everyone's records shorty. You'rre like a little gnat, annoying. 1.

Ummm, the reasom we started watching TV (music videos) was MJ, not JJ. Michael Jackson revolutioned the music video industry. I know you love wifey and all JD, but keep it real. Janet is a mediocre talent when it comes to singing. Beyonce can sing which will make her still around and doing big things in 20 yrs. Janet is a good entertainer with her 500 back-up dancers, live animals and fireworks, but she can't sing so wtf?
