“I thought it would be great if we could create our own nation, one that would have a positive message and that everyone would be free to join. We have so little time to solve these problems.
I’m not naive, I know an album or a song can’t change the world. I just want people to realize the urgency. I want to grab their attention. Music is my way of doing that. It’s okay to have fun. I want to be certain that point is clear. I have fun. Dancing is fun. Dancing is healthy. It pleases me when the kids say my stuff is kickin’, but it pleases me even more when they listen to the lyrics. The lyrics mean so much to me” - Janet Jackson
