LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy snubbed Janet Jackson when she asked him to write a "funky and dirty" track for her. The rocker was approached by the "Nasty" singer after she was impressed with the band's debut single, "Losing My Edge".

Jackson asked Murphy to help boost her chart hopes by creating a tailor-made song for her - but he ignored the request. Murphy tells Uncut magazine, "I got a phone message from Janet Jackson saying. 'Hi, I love Losing My Edge, can you do me something funky and dirty like that?' I can't really do off-the-peg stuff, so I never called back. It's not a problem. I'll always find a way to make a living."

Janet Jackson is taking a hiatus from working on a new album. She said back in March, "There was a time where I was actually in the studio and I was recording, but I'm not working on an album. There have been a lot of record labels that have asked me to sit down and talk with them, but I don't know if I want to do something completely independent, or go with a major."

They don't appear on MTV or the Disney Channel so you probably haven't heard of LCD Soundsystem. They're huge in NYC.

what an asshole.That man will Never make it in the music business. Janet is the sweetest person and she is the one of biggest selling recording artist in the world. Who the hell does this jerk off think he is? He's a nobody. If i didn't read this article I would have no clue in the world of who he is. So in reality if it wasn't for Janet Jackson there would be one less person in the would that knows this loser exist. Lol
