The Queen of Pop debate has reared its ugly head on Twitter (with Madonna trending for the past days as a result). It seems to have started from Lizzo tweeting that Janet Jackson is the queen of pop to which there's been a bit of an uproar. Following this tweet Madonna has received tens of thousands of mentions and has trended on Twitter as people are stating their version of events.

So taking everything into consideration, is Madonna the Queen of Pop and if not, who is? ohmy.gif

Janet is an ICON and legendary performer and one of my all time favourite artists, + most of her albums are masterpieces, but... no contest for me, Queen of Pop is Madonna. The sales don't lie!

I don't think I have ever heard of Janet being referred to as the Queen of Pop! And that's because she's not.

I always used to think of Madonna as the Queen of Pop... but I'm not sure I would label her as such now.

I don't know who would be instead though... certainly not Janet Jackson (though I think she is brilliant).

Yes.

There are individual metrics where others perhaps outdo her, but Madonna has longevity, creativity, cultural impact and of course the sales too. No she's not the best singer and the last decade has been...unfortunate, but there's no competition.

Janet is nobody in comparison with Madonna.

Let's not discredit Janet, one of the most successful artists in music history (particularly in the US)~

BUT if we had to pit them against each other as Twitter is doing, this thread has all the numbers we need:



#1 Best selling female artist of all time
#1 Most successful artist on United World Charts
#1 Top touring female artist of all time

to name but a few achievements Madonna has. It's undeniable that she is the pop queen. Obviously she isn't the artist that sells the most numbers now but in terms of legacy, it's undeniable.

Madonna used to be queen of pop but not anymore. Her output since confessions hasnít been great.

It's undeniably Madonna it's not even an argument. No disrespect to anyone who followed but they are all inspired by Madonna and nobody has matched her sales or chart legacy. Even with her not so great 10's decade her achievements in the 80s, 90s and 00s have not been matched.

Madonna was the queen until 2008, now it's Gaga.

laugh.gif No!

When Gaga has 3 decades of continuous output, presence and relevance in the industry like Madonna we can talk about it.

More like the Queen Mother

I find it funny that Lizzo separates Pop Princess and Princess Of Pop!

Madonna is obviously the queen of pop, there is no competition. The things she has achieved and risks she has taken in her career says it all, and surely she is not as much as a chart force these days but you don't need that when you have reached a level like hers. There wouldn't be a Britney, GaGa, Christina or Rihanna without her.

This is a topic about a question, I came and gave my answer/opinion, I didn't ask anyone's opinion about mine, just as I didn't opine about anyone's opinion here, so I ask you to respect my opinion and my freedom to say what I think. Otherwise, this topic is meaningless or purposeless.

Madonna has the throne until she's not around anymore.

This! I'd say she holds the title until she is no longer around much like the actual Queen!
