‘Take your medication Miley…a short vacation Miley…’
For one reason or an unfortunate other, those who either were too young to remember or yet to be born when Madonna and Britney Spears enjoyed their respective peaks, have been fed a gross mistruth by in recent years.
A mistruth, that claims that controversy and ‘rubbing critics the wrong way’ saw both ladies afforded the praise and acclaim they enjoyed then and still enjoy today.
Perhaps in trying to justify the messiness and lack of musicality that stops their favourite acts from reaching icon status, the misinformed willingly overlook the dedication both women showed to their craft on and off stage when deciding that ‘this talentless one’ and ‘that talentless one’ have what it takes to be the next ‘insert name of icon’.

Last week Billboard unveiled a series of countdowns celebrating the 55th anniversary of the ‘Billboard Hot 100′ – the standard chart ranking system of today’s popular music.
Highlighting everything from the top 100 songs to every #1 song since the tally’s 1958 inception, the article courted little backlash given the fact they were based on legit statistics and not popular opinion…that is, until they unveiled the Hot 100′s top acts.
Now – days after the listing first hit the net – some fans are still up-in-arms about how pop icon Madonna landed as the top solo act in history, beating the likes of Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, and Stevie Wonder. A feat all the more alarming when some recount the number of chart-toppers rivals Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey have had as well.
So, as always, we turn to you – That Grape Juice faithful – for your input. Is this worth the fuss?
