Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson

     Janet Damita Jo Jackson (born May 16, 1966) is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, dancer and actress. Born in Gary, Indiana and raised in Encino, California, she is the youngest member of the Jackson family of musicians. She initially performed on stage with her family beginning at the age of seven, and later started her career as an actress with the variety television series The Jacksons. She went on to star in other television shows including Good Times, A New Kind of Family, Diff’rent Strokes, and Fame.
     A member of the Jackson clan, Janet broke out with the highly successful “Control” and hasn’t looked back since. Jackson’s early career boasts two TV stints: “Good Times” (1977-79) and “Diff’rent Strokes” (1981-82). Jackson became the first artist in history to squeeze seven Billboard Top Five singles out of one album (”Rhythm Nation”). It was Janet Jackson who (inadvertently) put the term “wardrobe malfunction” into the American lexicon. In 2006, Janet Jackson released the album, “20 Y.O.” which celebrated the performer’s 20 years of hit making.
     Jackson faced initial difficulties after launching her recording career in 1982, often criticized for having a limited vocal range and being yet another child from the Jackson family to become a recording artist. However, with the collaboration of record producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Jackson found record-breaking success, producing five consecutive number one studio albums on the Billboard 200; these include Control (1986), Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989), janet. (1993), The Velvet Rope (1997), and All for You (2001). Although critics have compared her contemporary work less favorably to that of her initial breakthroughs, the critical and commercial success of her innovative multi-platinum albums, music videos and choreography have contributed to Jackson’s successful career as an entertainer.

Eminem

Eminem 

     Marshall Bruce Mathers III (born October 17, 1972), better known by his stage name Eminem, is an Oscar and multiple Grammy Award winning American rapper, record producer, and actor. Having sold over seventy million albums worldwide, Eminem is one of the highest-selling rappers of all time. Eminem was discovered by rapper and producer Dr. Dre. Dr. Dre later signed Eminem to his record label, Aftermath Entertainment.
     An immensely popular rapper from Detroit, Eminem has amassed multiplatinum success and an enormous global fanbase. Eminem’s independently released “Infinite” tape dropped in 1996. On the D-12 “Devil’s Night” album, Em calls out Fred Durst and DJ Lethal on the hidden track “Girls.” Eminem has also hurled dis rhymes at Christina Aguiliera, Everlast, and Dilated Peoples. As a ridiculously sad publicity stunt, Eminem’s mom recorded a song lashing out at him with no-name rappers ID-X.
     Eminem is praised for his “verbal energy” and high quality of lyricism. However, he is often infamous for the controversy surrounding many of these lyrics. With the success of his highly acclaimed music, and its subsequent nomination for multiple Grammy awards including Album of the Year, critics such as GLAAD denounced his lyrics as homophobic and misogynist, while others claimed that it promoted violence.

Madonna

Madonna

     Madonna Louise Ciccone Ritchie (born August 16, 1958), known artistically as Madonna, is an American pop singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress and author. Raised in Detroit, Michigan, Madonna moved to New York City to pursue a career in ballet. After performing as a member of the pop musical groups Breakfast Club and Emmy, she began a career as a solo recording artist with the release of her self-titled debut album in 1983. Madonna has since been regarded as “one of the greatest pop acts of all time”, dubbed the “Queen of Pop” by the media.
     One of pop’s most successful artists, Madonna is admired for her music as much as for her maverick personality. Madonna left college after one year and took off for New York, where she earned a spot with the Alvin Ailey Dance Troupe. In the early 1980s, Madonna was part of a New York-based pop group called the Breakfast Club. Madge is praised for her music as much as she is panned for her movies. In 2000, she was voted Worst Actress of the Century. Encyclopedia Britannica announced in June 2001 that future versions of their volumes will include an entry for Madonna.
     Madonna rose to stardom, producing three consecutive number one studio albums on the Billboard 200: Like a Virgin (1984), True Blue (1986), and Like a Prayer (1989). Though the entertainer faced negative critical publicity and modest sales on subsequent albums Erotica (1992) and Bedtime Stories (1994), she garnered critical acclaim with the release of her seventh studio album Ray of Light (1998). Madonna continued to remain in the forefront of pop music with four more consecutive number one studio albums; Music (2000) American Life (2003) Confessions on a Dance Floor (2005) and Hard Candy (2008).
