On September 19, 1989 Janet Jackson 's monster album Rhythm Nation 1814 was released, making 2014 the 25th anniversary of the seminal record. Janet's incredible style evolution over the nearly 40 years she's been in the public eye makes her the perfect candidate for Transformation Tuesday.

CAGW has closely monitored and commented on the developments surrounding net neutrality, submitting comments to the FCC during its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on July 7, 2014, and the net neutrality docket on September 15, 2014. The FCC received a record 3 million comments on the proposed rules for how broadband providers must treat traffic flowing over their networks, far surpassing the 1.4 million filed during Janet Jackson's 2004 wardrobe malfunction.
The Stroudsburg School Board will vote Wednesday whether to pay $6,000 in attorneys' fees incurred by two board members as the result of a lawsuit filed by a group of parents last month. One of the bills is for fees totaling $3,465 charged Aug. 7-21 for attorney Mark Primrose on behalf of school board President Richard Pierce.
I realize that's a big claim for a decade that included such talents as Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, Annie Lennox, Cyndi Lauper, and Madonna. It may seem even more dubious given the fact that Janet really only emerged as a major figure in 1986 with the release of Control -and only released two substantial albums over the course of the decade.
The FCC has already been swamped by a record-breaking number of comments on its proposal to change the rules for internet traffic. More comments are likely to come in by the final deadline period on Monday.
An anonymous reader writes Following Wednesday's Internet Slowdown campaign, the Federal Communications Commission says it has now received a total of 1,750,435 comments on net neutrality , surpassing the approximately 1.4 million complaints it saw after the exposure of Janet Jackson's breast during Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004. Wednesday saw citizens submit more than 700,000 new comments to the FCC, and place more than 300,000 calls to the agency.
In case you missed it, yesterday was Internet slowdown day , in which a collection of tech companies -- including Netflix, Etsy, Kicktarter, Reddit, and Foursquare -- banded together to raise awareness regarding the FCC proposals to regulate the Internet. In its wake, the FCC announced that it had received 1,477,301 public comments concerning the FCC's proposals since July, the Guardian reports .
The Federal Communications Commission has received 1.47 million comments on its controversial plan for new net neutrality rules, breaking the record set by Janet Jackson's infamous "wardrobe malfunction" at the 2004 Super Bowl. The old record of 1.4 million comments was broken Wednesday amid an Internet-wide protest of the FCC's regulatory plan, which critics warn could lead to a tiered system of "fast lanes" and "slow lanes" on the Internet.
Good news: America really cares about net neutrality! They care about it so much that, thanks to the calls of folks like John Oliver and protests from big-name websites , Americans sent over 1,477,301 public comments to the Federal Communications Commission on its behalf. Even better news: They care about it more than they cared about Janet Jackson 's infamous wardrobe malfunction in 2004, which previously held the record for the most comments sent to the FCC.
Nothing says rebellion quite like nudity , apparently. At least according to Miley Cyrus .
