Oh, April... Janet Jackson went out of style at the same time as C + C Music Factory? Surely you remember how both janet and The Velvet Rope were number 1 albums? The string of #1 singles after Rhythm Nation ("If", "That's The Way Love Goes", "Anytime, Anyplace", "Again", "Runaway", "Together Again", "Doesn't Really Matter")? How she had 3 songs in the top 20 songs of 1993, 2 songs in the top 100 songs of 1995, 3 songs in the top 50 songs of 1998, 1 song in the top 100 songs of 1999, and five of the top 100 songs of the 90's? Furthermore, you'd be hard-pressed to find a woman besides Madonna who is as beloved by MTV.

Saying that Janet's career ended with Rhythm Nation 1814 is kind of like saying that Aerosmith's career ended with Pump.

Now, if you were talking about post-Black Album Metallica, I'd understand.
