Janet Jackson has revealed why she and Def Jam executives parted ways. She states it is because she refused to be the new Sade.
Janet says she cut all ties to her record label in September, and now she’s talking about the final straw that made her seek a new direction in her career.
“There were some people who didn’t like the direction I took with this album (Discipline). They wanted me to sound more like Sade, but I’m not ready for that just yet. I love doing dance songs and I think my fans expect that of me.”
Noone in their right mind would want you to do anything other than dance record. Def Jam and LA Reid are not stupid. You's a lie.
