But that's not all. Upon trying to find the most watchable video, I discovered that there are two versions. One has a distinctly Blasian theme to it (which I've never seen) and one very much does not (which I believe is the version that got the heavy rotation on MTV...at least here in the States). Really...it's like two completely different videos.
Sorry, I can only link to this video on YouTube because the embedding has been disabled:
Of course, IMO, the Blasian version is richer in depth, and actually makes a lot more sense when you consider Janet's body language, the atmosphere and her smoldering off-stage eye contact. With the Blasian version, you actually get to see who she has the hots for ('cause it certainly ain't the guy she's dancing with), and let's just say that when you see him, the words in the song suddenly make a lot more sense.
Now, I'm not sure how I feel about the been-done-a-million-times-before theme, but I love the dancing, and I must say...the casting director was truly on his or her game because the men in the video were something to look at.
It also didn't fully strike me until near the end of the video that Janet seemed to be singing to and performing for that gorgeous, gorgeous man who couldn't keep seem to keep his eyes off her (nor could she keep her eyes off him). Unfortunately, they didn't get anywhere near each other in the video, but it got downright hot up in there at the end with all the copious amounts of eye sex going on. We certainly know who Janet was leaving with that night. Whew!
Has anyone else seen this version of the video or am I the only one in the dark?
Really...I must know who this man is. Lawd. Have. Mercy!
*As an aside, I'd just like to say that all the craptastic music and "entertainment" that we're subjected to nowadays can't hold a candle to the Janet Jackson's of the world. I can't remember the last time I saw a performance like this and this is just a video. Boy, do I miss real performers/performances. /rant
