Janet Jackson – Control (Official Video)


– Oh, hi honey! I’m gonna have dinner
ready early tonight. – Um, I’ve got a soundcheck so I’ll just eat after
the show, Mother. (door creaks) – Your limousine is here. – It’s not gonna be
good cold, honey. – Don’t you think
it’s about time I moved outta here
and got my own place? I found a real cute
apartment in Westwood. It’s really nice. – Westwood? – I put a deposit on it already. You can see it tomorrow. – No! You’re not getting any
apartment in Westwood or any place else by yourself. – Well, wait a minute, can’t
we even talk about this? – There’s nothing to talk about. – I don’t need a limo. (loud shouting) – [Group] Wait, wait! – It’s Janet Jackson! Man, we got to
get a bigger hall! – I know that’s
right; what you doing? – Yo, baby; where you
going in such a hurry? You ain’t taking the limo? – Baby, you look good to me! Body language! (laughter) – Leave me alone! (laughing) – What’s the matter, baby? – My dad and I,
we got in a fight ’cause he doesn’t
want me to move out. – Yeah, he just don’t want you to be giving up
that body language! (laughing) – Yeah, you got a little
dust back there! (laughing) – Terry! (laughing) – You better get it together, ’cause you gotta
throw down tonight! You ready? – Yeah! – Then we got the
ride; let’s get out! (chattering) (chattering) – Give me some of
that chicken, man! – Don’t be throwing the
chicken on my ride, man! – Boy, this is good, man! – Golden Bird
Chicken kinda right! – That don’t taste
too good, man. – [Group] Why, Bean? – Did y’all see how
Janet looked tonight? – Yeah; she was
looking kinda bad. – Yeah, man; she can’t
be down tonight, man. It’s her first gig;
she got to throw down! – Yeah, she can’t be illin’! – Fellas, we ought to be… [Group] Chillin’! – When we get there,
break out the coats. (laughing) – This is a story about
control; my control. Control of what I say,
and control of what I do. And this time, I’m
gonna do it my way. (audience cheering) I hope you enjoy
this as much as I do. Are we ready? I am. ‘Cause it’s all about control, and I’ve got lots of it. (audience cheering) Band! ♪ When I was 17, I did

  1. I remember when this came out as a kid. I just thought she was EVERYTHING! I'd stay up allllll night on weekends waiting on them to play this video on Nite Tracks. I'm 43 now..and I still think she's just EVERYTHING!!!💜

  2. Being a little girl listening to her and her brothers I loved it. And watching her kill it just like her big brother Michael I love it

  3. Whenever I had to make long drives to Wisconsin back in the day. I would throw this on in the cassette player and rock that drive! Jimmi Jam!

  4. She obviously does not have any control now. Her music is weak, her costumes are horrible, and her makeup is atrocious. What happened to this woman from back in the day?

  5. As a teenager in the 80s, if I had come across a magic lamp I would have only needed one wish – to be Janet on that stage in CONTROL of the damn thing, already. With Jimmy-freakin Jam and Terry M-F'in Lewis?? Hell yes!!! Groovin at 3:40 and then…. "BAND!". Cut the the coolest looking dudes ever coming in on a beat that won't quit with a synth jam that's untouchable in its feel. The mic drop on Badassery with a side of smooth, if you ask me. (But the best part is the look of sheer joy on her face right after that…) Aaaaand maybe 6:48 feels pretty good too when the grooves moves right through you. Yeah. Where is that goddamn magic lamp, anyway? I'm ready.

  6. He's trying to get you in his pocket so he can kill you too. he don't want you to have nothing or nobody. Jackie collins

  7. Thank you for adding captions!! I have been waiting for a long time to see this video with captions!! 🤩🤩

  10. My favorite of the Janet Jackson …had so much fun decoding & programming drum machine parts for an original 80's band called Nyx. Perfect Blend of man & machine…best of both worlds

  11. I will never forget the talent show my 5th grade year at Turner Elementary in Houston, Tx. Majic 102 was there to give away the prize for 1st place. Well a young lady in my class performed like Janet from beginning to end. We were backstage saying you go next. No you go next. You could not win.

  12. Ms Janet will ALWAYS be better than any of these so called “queens” out here now including Bey. She can’t hold a candle to Janet and never will.

  13. Is it me only noticing that the mom in this video is Willona (Penny's mom from Good Times)? Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but she sure looks like her

  14. wow seeing all those guys from the Time at the start of the video…Jellybean, Jerome, Jimmy and Terry…what a great collaboration this was!!

  15. Before there was ever a Beyonce there was Janet MRS.JACKSON IF YOU NASTY
    She is the baddest girl ever 💁🏾 . Go on, Miss Janet !
    Here in 2019 for the REMASTER!

  16. It's really strange I totally forgot about the first three minutes of this video I always remember the musical portion this was just the best time to listen to music….

  17. Bobby Brown was soo in love with Janet you see his video inspiration right here for his own hit "My Prerogative"…it is so apparent.

  18. Remember buying this album back in the day and playing it to death. Thank you so much for uploading & sharing. :)) #greattimes

  19. This control tape was the very first cassette tape I ever bought. My friend messed up the first song which is Control somehow she recorded over Control and I was so mad. I just bought it then we went to their house I was in the 5th grade. Those were the days before shit got hard.

  20. Little Penny. 21 Jump Street. Dancing with her brothers. She had a debut album before this did very little on the charts. This video was never played in its fullest but a few times, This will be the 2nd time Im seeing it.
