The 34th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony Friday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York honored Def Leppard, The Zombies, Roxy Music, Radiohead, Stevie Nicks, The Cure and Janet Jackson.
Jackson was inducted by current R&B sensation Janelle Monae, who really knew her stuff and praised Jackson to the skies. She called her "the queen of black girl magic" and said her picture had long been the screen saver on her phone.
Janet became the sixth member of her family in the Hall, following her brothers in the Jackson 5. Michael is also enshrined as a solo artist.
Janet Jackson recognizes her brothers -- The Jackson 5 -- at Friday's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony:
“In 1997, my brothers were recognized for their musical passion by being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And I was so proud. I was always crashing their rehearsals. I was always tagging along, always with my brothers. I witnessed, along with the rest of the world, my family’s extraordinary impact on popular culture. Not just in America, but all around the globe, the entire globe. And as the youngest in the family, I was determined to make it on my own. I wanted to stand on my own two feet. But never in a million years did I expect to follow in their footsteps. Tonight, your baby sister has made it.”
