This was an April Fools’ joke
————————

Janet Love has learnt that Janet will re-shoot her video for Rock With U. In a statement released exclusively to Janet Love, Island Def Jam representative Lila Froop confirmed that Janet was unhappy with the initial version of the video and held crisis talks all weekend with director Saam Farahmand. He was given 24 hours to pitch new ideas for a video and has been instructed to have the shoot ready for this coming weekend.

It is believed that this is the primary reason why the original Rock With U video has been pulled from music channels BET, VH1 and MTV in order to prevent it receiving plays so that the new version can be released as and when it is ready.

The new video is expected to receive massive media attention because of the unprecedented decision to spend even more money on an already expensive project. Janet Love will, of course, keep you updated with the latest.

  4. i have to say, my jaw dropped when i read this, because rock with u is now one of my favorite janet videos. the inspiration with the blitz kids, the choreography, cinematography – all make the video perfection for me.

  5. Ok – maybe I fell for a joke lol – I thought it made sense cause the song is not doing well when it should be!

  6. I dont think this a joke. I dont think ayne who host a is ededicatd to Janet wol pull a prank so huge. Plus they recievedthe news from IDJ’s publicist.

  7. if is true…that i love it…if is a joke than i hate it
    but one thing is 4 sure
    that i LOVE THE QUEEN OF MUSIC…JANET JACKSON!

  8. I think that April Fool’s jokes are fine, but not jokes that do damage to promotion of Janet’s project. This is a stupid, insensitive, and poorly thought out idea for a “joke” because it uses Janet’s fake “disappointment” in a project that she created (and even plays off the false disappointment in her friend/director) to signify a redo.

    As you can see, people who are fans of Janet want to support her, and – as Perez has done – quickly jump on the bandwagon that there was something “wrong” with the RWU video, when in fact Janet is perfectly happy with it.

    Now the meme has started that there is something wrong with it, and the idea of getting a new video makes any Janet fan excited, regardless of their opinion of the video. I love the RWU video, but you could make 4 videos for each song and I’d be really excited about it too. But it’s NOT TRUE.

    Just the fact that Perez has picked this up signifies that it gets a wider audience than Janet fans, people who aren’t paying attention, and confirms to dyed-in-the-wool haters that “something is wrong” with Janet’s work.

    It’s stupid, and I have no problem saying that a Janet fan site posting an April Fool’s joke this poorly executed speaks volumes about the integrity of that site.

  10. Yeah…probably not a good idea to joke about a single that’s struggling on a site where fans are really rooting for janet. I know it was well intended. Lesson learned…move on.

  11. janetluva… your name represents BAD TASTE BECUSE IF YOU DID LOVE JANET YOU WOULD HAVE REALIZED THAT PLAYING AROUND LIKE THAT IS NOT COOL. NO TRUE FAN IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD LAUNCHED SOME BULL LIKE THIS PERIOD! ITS BAD ENOUGH WITH THE OTHER NEGATIVE PRESS SURROUNDING THE PROJECT.. NOW WE HAVE OUR OWN SITES STARTING IT… ITS SO SAD!!! Oh well what else can we expect from stupid people….

  12. LOVE THE JOKEY JOKE I KNEW IT WAS JANET WILL NEVER RE-SHOOT ANY VIDEOS BECAUSE IT WAS THE BOMB AND IF THE VIDEOS AINT GOOD SHE WOULD NOT DO

  13. As a diehard Janet fan I have to say that there are some songs on “Discipline” that I definitely like but a few that fall short for me. I love the song “Rock With You” but the video leaves little to be desired. Love the fact that the “kids” are in it dancing and all but the video quality is very low budget. It looks rushed and unfinished like a dress rehearsal. I had read somewhere that Saam left the set of the video for “RWU” blank because he was going to CG in some effects in post production. Where are the effects? I’m just saying…How could Janet follow up the awesome video quality of FEEDBACK with the low budget look of ROCK WITH YOU!

    I understand that this was an April Fools joke and accept it as such and move on but I for one was actually rooting for a redo for RWU as I really don’t like the current version.

    Sorry Janet, you’re my girl and all but you gotta step it up with girls like Beyonce and Ciara on the rise. You used to be so much better than this! What is happening?
