Janet Jackson And Mariah "youngun's" In the Same league As Alicia Keys According To Oprah

So i happened to stumble on this..and even though it happened years ago this was my first time coming across it..i commend oprah for honoring all this monumental women of color but diminishing or belittling the achievements and legacies of others whiles doing so was not the way to go..i understand the need to put people like Maya Angelou, Shirley Caesar, Diahann Carroll, Elizabeth Catlett, Ruby Dee, Katherine Dunham, Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin, Nikki Giovanni, Dorothy Height, Lena Horne, Coretta Scott King, , Toni Morrison, Rosa Parks, Leontyne Price, Della Reese, Diana Ross, Melba Moore, Naomi Sims,, Cicely Tyson, Alice Walker, , and Nancy Wilson. in very high esteem but if you add

Dionne Warwick, Patti LaBelle,Gladys Knight, Tina Turner to the list very monumentally influential women i may add then why would you leave out Janet and Mariah and class them among Alicia Keys, Ashanti, , Mary J. Blige, Brandy, Missy Elliott, Tyra Banks, Iman,Phylicia Rashad, Debbie Allen and Alfre Woodard, most of whom janet paved the way for was just plain disrespectful and if i were janet i woulda turned down the invitation (but we all know janet's too nice to refuse )

Janet maybe the youngest Legend...but her ground breaking contributions To popular culture cannot be overlooked because of her age..

for those who havent see this legend ball stuff
