“Janet Jackson has built a career so groundbreaking that she’s immediately identifiable on a first-name basis,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website wrote. “She explored social issues, themes of empowerment and self-confidence, and influenced generations with her stylized music videos with innovative choreography.”

That’s an understatement.
