True, I think in the case of both Madonna with the Sex book and Janet with Super Bowl, is that both would have suffered commercially regardless. They just would not have had the added hysteria over their respective controversies (Madonna – Sex; Janet – Super Bowl). I think both had been successful for a long period of time that there was bound to be some diminishing returns at some point, for them, it happened during major controversies. We'll never know since both controversies overshadowed the music at the time. However, I will say Erotica is one of my favourite albums so I think musically Madonna was still at a creative peak whereas I am not a Damita Jo fan.
