QuestLove Campaigning For Janet Jackson

Questlove is campaigning for Janet Jackson to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Over the weekend, a #JanetJacksonAppreciation hashtag went viral and Queslove chimed in, stating that it was ‘highly criminal’ that the 51-year-old singer had not yet been inducted. He wrote on social media,

I’m using my platform for #JanetJacksonAppreciation day for a slightly different reason: as a voting member of the @RockHall its criminal that @JanetJackson has NOT been inducted yet. 32 years ago today #Control dropped AND CHANGED EVERYTHING: including her brother AND the mentor of her producers jimmy & terry. Whether we credit it or not: Control was the first #NewJackSwing album. Yeah it was breakbeat free, but the young brash attitude made it a first. This was NOONEs kid sister. Prince famously drove to @flytetymejam’s house and threw the record at his door zero o’clock in the morning (hey, if you ain’t got no haters you ain’t poppin) not to take away from her peers in the RRHOF that made marks in the 80s. But half of them can NOT claim they changed music (this is just one album mind you) I know this tag is for other reasons but of all the double standard injustices, her not being inducted is HIGHLY criminal.

Should Janet be inducted?
