Singer Janet Jackson’s career spans 40 years and includes million selling albums as well as film and television appearances. So why hasn’t she been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame yet? That’s the question some fans have asked and they’ve  banned together to make that a reality. They’ve not only gotten a petition to have Jackson inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, but put together a video expressing their thoughts on the matter that they hope goes viral. Hopefully, the video will help. Janet certainly deserves the honor.
