Janet Jackson and her big sister, Rebbie, has youngins confused and proud old schoolers frustrated right about now. A few months ago they shared a photo of themselves together backstage at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards and that has everybody talking.

You see, we Old Schoolers can name all 9 of the Jackson family siblings without even flinching. But when it comes to these new-aged millennials, it’s a whole ‘notha story and that became even more evident after Janet (53) and Rebbie (69) shared their photo.

Youngins Confused About Rebbie Jackson

When Janet and Rebbie’s beautiful age-defying photo was originally re-shared on The ShadeRoom, millennials began to wonder who in the world Rebbie was.

Now granted, Rebbie’s last hit was “Centipede,” in the mid-1980’s, so the youngins were not even born at that time. However, not only is Rebbie the sibling of the largest entertainer of all time, Michael Jackson, she’s also part of the most legendary family in the history of music.

Therefore, one would think the millennial generation would at least know Janet has a sister named Rebbie. But many of them did not have a clue she existed and proceeded to express their confusion about her online, as old generations tried to enlighten them about her:

Mass Confusion For the Youngins’

As y’all can see, Janet and Rebbie caused mass confusion for the youngins, LOL. Their confusion was equally as comical, as it is a dose of reality- that today’s generation lacks a great deal of knowledge about the days of real R&B music.

Some millennials may believe that R&B started with Chris Brown and hip hop started with Lil Wayne. Can’t really place blame on them though, they’re just the result of the re-programming that major mainstream music outlets have inflicted on young people for quite some time, by dumbing down the music they push. A sad reality indeed. Anywho, the good news is that Janet and Rebbie are out here lookin’ GOOD at 52 and 68!
