Wonder Woman of the Week: Janet Jackson and her Hall of Fame status


To celebrate her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and other accomplishments, Janet Jackson is our Wonder Woman this week.

For our Wonder Woman of the Week series, we like to celebrate women who are doing important things in many fields and areas. We also like to honor women in entertainment who have made a cultural impact and indent in their industry. Women overall have made so many incredible contributions to the world of entertainment and changed the game over and over with their artistic talent, business smarts, and boundary-breaking.

To celebrate Janet Jackson’s upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we’re honoring her as our latest Wonder Woman of the Week. Though she definitely should have been inducted a long time ago (Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five have already been included), we are glad to see she is finally getting her due.

Fans have been asking for this for a while, astonished that she’s been nominated three times and just now making it in. But, this legendary pop and music icon will now take her place in the halls of some of the greatest musicians of all time. The induction ceremony will be held sometime next spring in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center.

If you need a reminder of some of Jackson’s many accomplishments and how she contributed to pop culture, here are just a few of them:

  • Janet Jackson released her first album when she was 15.
  • Her third album, Control, made it to the number 1 spot on the Billboard charts when it came out in 1986.
  • Her fourth album, Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814, also topped the charts when it was released in 1990 and was the biggest album of that entire year.
  • Jackson has won multiple Grammys over the years as well as numerous other awards.

This list is really just the tip of the iceberg. Janet Jackson also has a legacy of devoted fans, and they are here to defend her. Earlier this year, they created a viral hashtag, #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay, to celebrate her accomplishments when Justin Timberlake was asked back to the Super Bowl but Jackson was not.

Congratulations to Janet Jackson on being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! She more than deserves it, and we are glad she is finally being recognized for her contributions to music and the entertainment industry as a whole.
