    Whether she's dancing in an industrial warehouse or just lounging around in her living room, we can't take our eyes off of her.

    How adorable was seeing the sweet, soft-spoken, baby-faced Janet trying to tell her parents she was going to move out? This was maybe the cutest video about rebellion and independence ever made.

    "My first name ain't 'baby,' it's Janet / Ms. Jackson, if you're nasty."

    She and Busta melt away...tripppyyyy....


    Janet's Bollywood phase.

    Oh, just Janet chillin' in Africa with a falcon, some elephants, monkeys, giraffes, and a bunch of wildcats.

    A futuristic, 2-D setting, full of electric color and cheeky choreography? Yes, please.

    7. "Someone To Call My Lover," All For You

    Off her 2008 album Discipline, Janet was ahead of the curve with "Rock With You," a sleek and sexy house track. The video is a testament to what Janet does best – no matter how many years have gone by since her debut, she remains to be one of the best dancers in music. She still doesn't shy away from intricate routines and doesn't need fancy effects to keep us completely captivated by her.

    Seriously, though – she throws the BEST house parties.

    Name me a duo more dynamic and explosive than Michael and Janet. You can't. This was the ultimate teaming up of superstar siblings, and a huge middle finger to the media and their critics.

    2. "Love Will Never Do (Without You)," Rhythm Nation 1814

    Perhaps the most joyful, ecstatic video known to man. Has anyone ever captured the feelings of head-over-heels love quite like this?

    And, you know, the eye candy in the video doesn't hurt either.

    "If you believe in love, say...!"


    She is actually the most gorgeous person on the planet.

    Sorry, just one more.

    Okay, for real this time.

    1. "Rhythm Nation," Rhythm Nation 1814

    The ultimate Janet Jackson video. This was the moment Janet went from Michael Jackson's little sister into a powerhouse in her own right.

    She also basically pioneered the dancing in a warehouse, post-apocalyptic, industrial setting video. So, Britney ("Till The World Ends"), Rihanna ("Hard"), Lady Gaga ("Alejandro"), and even the Spice Girls ("Spice Up Your Life") – you all have Ms. Jackson to thank.

    Thank you, Janet.
