Instagram is full of photos of people and kids dressed like Janet for Halloween. Mostly infamous Rhythm Nation costume.

Here's the video of Janet as Catwoman at her Halloween Party:

Boston Globe: Janet Jackson’s career has been marked by bold moves
The pop landscape of the 1980s — and the decades that followed — would have been a very different place had Janet Jackson not decided to go her own way.

“Control” established her as a pop star on the level of her brother; “Rhythm Nation” showed how her feather-light voice could roar with the big cats; “Janet” established her as an artist who could amalgamate while pushing forward. “The Velvet Rope” is undoubtedly a titanic achievement; it’s been cited as a precursor to any number of liberatory pop moments, from Christina Aguilera’s ragged “Stripped” to Kanye West’s AutoTune-cloaked “808s and Heartbreak.” 2015’s “Unbreakable” was a triumph, a return to form that didn’t feel like a simple rehashing of her past or an awkward grab toward the present.

Kelela: 'You can never have enough music that empowers black women'
The singer was born Kelela Mizanekristos to Ethiopian immigrant parents in Washington, D.C., and grew up feeling like an outsider in Maryland. Her father gave her Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation 1814” album as a child, and her future came into focus.

“It checked all the boxes,” she says. “The solid, incredible songwriting was so stimulating, even without the production. But on the production side there is so much innovative stuff happening. It is so rich sonically. And then in terms of reference, the (accompanying) film, the world she created around it, the message she wanted to share, it was really valuable as a template, a guide.”

Random Question:

Do you guys think that Janet albums having so many tracks played a role in her not having mega sales like many other big names artist? I remember being younger, it was so annoying trying to listen to albums with tons of tracks because taps were very popular and cheaper. It was easy to get them, but long albums were tough to listen to.

Nah. That would affect her sales in America, Asia or Africa too. It's only Europe. Urban R&B wasn't popular in Europe. Considering that, her sales in Europe were great, but not as great as in America and Asia. That's all.

The same goes for Beyoncé.

Well Beyonce is pretty huge in Europe based on her sales. She lost many Asian countries.

I wonder if Janet will head back to Asia and Europe for her tour!

Beyonce doesn't have many hits here. Her albums and tours do well.

But Janet also did well with albums and tours. Even singles did well, although didn't chart as high as in the US.
I hope Janet will tour Europe again. It's been a long time since I've seen her live.

I honestly believe that if "Rock With You " was the first single from Discipline, things would have been different. That song had international hit all over it.

This. Janet was as huge as Beyonce in Europe. I know it's unfair to compare her latest albums because sales are much lower in general, but in Europe Dangerously in Love sold like The Velvet Rope, Janet or Design of a Decade, not like Let's Talk About Love or True Blue. The same goes for the most successful Destiny’s Child album. It's simply because that kind of music is not popular in Europe as much as in the USA or Asia and that affects their global sales.

Destiny's Child and Beyonce were bigger in Europe than Janet. Lets be honest guys. Singles, albums, and tours, Janet is no Beyonce in Europe. Remember Beyonce started in 2003, not 1993. They have sold near the same amount of albums, and Janet came from the biggest album selling era of all time. There may be a few countries were Beyonce is not really known, but overall, she is much bigger in Europe than what Janet was.

I doubt this. Janet was everywhere from What Have You Done For Me Lately till Together Again.
Beyonce never had many hits here. And certainly not for as many years as Janet.
People forget how huge Janet was here.
