Janet Jackson – Control (Official Video)

August 22, 2019


– Oh, hi honey! I’m gonna have dinner
ready early tonight. – Um, I’ve got a soundcheck so I’ll just eat after
the show, Mother. (door creaks) – Your limousine is here. – It’s not gonna be
good cold, honey. – Don’t you think
it’s about time I moved outta here
and got my own place? I found a real cute
apartment in Westwood. It’s really nice. – Westwood? – I put a deposit on it already. You can see it tomorrow. – No! You’re not getting any
apartment in Westwood or any place else by yourself. – Well, wait a minute, can’t
we even talk about this? – There’s nothing to talk about. – I don’t need a limo. (loud shouting) – [Group] Wait, wait! – It’s Janet Jackson! Man, we got to
get a bigger hall! – I know that’s
right; what you doing? – Yo, baby; where you
going in such a hurry? You ain’t taking the limo? – Baby, you look good to me! Body language! (laughter) – Leave me alone! (laughing) – What’s the matter, baby? – My dad and I,
we got in a fight ’cause he doesn’t
want me to move out. – Yeah, he just don’t want you to be giving up
that body language! (laughing) – Yeah, you got a little
dust back there! (laughing) – Terry! (laughing) – You better get it together, ’cause you gotta
throw down tonight! You ready? – Yeah! – Then we got the
ride; let’s get out! (chattering) (chattering) – Give me some of
that chicken, man! – Don’t be throwing the
chicken on my ride, man! – Boy, this is good, man! – Golden Bird
Chicken kinda right! – That don’t taste
too good, man. – [Group] Why, Bean? – Did y’all see how
Janet looked tonight? – Yeah; she was
looking kinda bad. – Yeah, man; she can’t
be down tonight, man. It’s her first gig;
she got to throw down! – Yeah, she can’t be illin’! – Fellas, we ought to be… [Group] Chillin’! – When we get there,
break out the coats. (laughing) – This is a story about
control; my control. Control of what I say,
and control of what I do. And this time, I’m
gonna do it my way. (audience cheering) I hope you enjoy
this as much as I do. Are we ready? I am. ‘Cause it’s all about control, and I’ve got lots of it. (audience cheering) Band! ♪ When I was 17, I did

    As a teenager in the 80s, if I had come across a magic lamp I would have only needed one wish – to be Janet on that stage in CONTROL of the damn thing, already. With Jimmy-freakin Jam and Terry M-F'in Lewis?? Hell yes!!! Groovin at 3:40 and then…. "BAND!". Cut the the coolest looking dudes ever coming in on a beat that won't quit with a synth jam that's untouchable in its feel. The mic drop on Badassery with a side of smooth, if you ask me. (But the best part is the look of sheer joy on her face right after that…) Aaaaand maybe 6:48 feels pretty good too when the grooves moves right through you. Yeah. Where is that goddamn magic lamp, anyway? I'm ready.

    I will never forget the talent show my 5th grade year at Turner Elementary in Houston, Tx. Majic 102 was there to give away the prize for 1st place. Well a young lady in my class performed like Janet from beginning to end. We were backstage saying you go next. No you go next. You could not win.
