I Need Some Discipline Tonight
See more » Personalities
I suspect fans of Rhythm Nation and Control likely saw Janet Jackson as a dominatrix if they were using kinky filters. On her new CD she's the bottom.
On the title track of her new Discipline (Island Def Jam) album, over a loop of heavy breathing and Prince-ly slow-grinding synth-funk, Janet Jackson coos, "Take out your frustrations on me."
On the masochistic title tune, Janet begs for punishment. What the naughty girl really hopes is to get back to being the chart dominatrix that she once was.
Classy tryptich cardboard sleeve. Booklet goes for a hard, metallic look in which Jackson is posed as a sexy dominatrix. Yet there are also photos that suggest maturity. Gasp.
It's sad that it's come to this. Here she is on the cover of Discipline wearing dominatrix gloves, with a title cut that has her telling "Daddy" that "I need some discipline tonight / I've been very bad."
