After watching her last Homegirls In Outer Space meets bowl of cereal themed video, I was expecting the worst for Janet’s follow-up to “Feedback.” But, I can honestly say I am pleasantly surprised. This time Janet’s chosen ‘the kids’ go Gothic as the backdrop for the video for “Rock With U.” It’s kind of random, but I dig it.
I really haven’t liked her shift from fluid and sexy to Iraqi soldier styled choreography in recent years, but in this video, I enjoy her dancing. Did some choreographer get locked in the closet?
This is also one of the few songs I like from Discipline.
It’s really nice to see something of Janet that doesn’t make me go, “What the hell has happened to you?” I’m going to bask in the moment before it’s ruined.
By the way: Is it me or does Janet look a lot like LaToya in this video? It’s amazing that despite all of the plastic surgeries between them, Michael, Janet, and LaToya still look like triplets.
