Rolling Stone Introduces ‘The New Queen of Pop’

Published: Thursday 30th Jun 2011 by Rashad

In an article that is sure to spark many a debate, Rolling Stone magazine has compiled a list to crown the ‘new Queen of Pop’.  In a tabulation solely compiled of 21st century divas including P!nk, Britney Spears, and Beyonce, the publication only considered female singers active in the late 2000’s and factored-in everything from Youtube video hits to record sales and tours.

What number did your fave make on the list?  You may be surprised.   See more after the jump:

Unfortunately, given some of the names listed, talent was obviously excluded from the ranking requirements. Read the entire article here.

And Sam, #13 is Kelly Clarkson, not Rowland.  #shade

  3. So Me June 30, 2011

    Madonna will forever be the queen of pop. Just like no one can take Michael’s crown. No one can take hers.

    • COCKY November 11, 2013

      And she can be forever a virgin
      ( Like a virgin hey, touch for the very first time) MADONNA IS OVER, now is 2013 not 80s

  4. UK-b June 30, 2011

  6. YALL ARE TOO FAKE June 30, 2011

    YAY GAGA!!!!

  7. Justathought June 30, 2011

    I’m surprised Beyonce isn’t number 3.

  8. JON June 30, 2011

    This List is a load of Balls

  9. TYLER June 30, 2011

  10. TYLER June 30, 2011

    OMG!!!! HERE COMES A STAN WAR!

    *BATTLES FOR BEYONCE*

  11. matt June 30, 2011

    This list is compiled from everything, social media, hot 100 longevity, #1’s, billboard 200, radio spins, charts and much more. Gaga came out later than nearly all on the chart and is #1 by a margin, GO GAGA!!

  12. Tologe June 30, 2011

    c’mon, gaga? i don’t like britney, but respect where it’s due. even tho ima HUGE beyoncé fan, i think britney should be #1

  13. ChrisJ June 30, 2011

    bullllllllllllllshit REALLY BEYONCE #5 OBVIOUSLY THIS LIST IS A JOKE

  14. truciebedford June 30, 2011

    i should be Madonna, Britney, Gaga, then Rihanna. Those are the top four to me that really capture the essence of POP. lol F*** Talent. Music is what matters. POP has nothing to do with talent and everything to do with music you dumbs dumbs. Sam stop trying to sway ppl in your stan movement.

  15. TYLER June 30, 2011

    is KELLY for Kelly Rowland?

  16. ISTANN4GAGA June 30, 2011

    It was my fave but I didn’t have to read the post…

    I may love/slay for Beyonce but she is MAINLY R&B in my eyes….

    *cue Britney stans*

  17. YALL ARE TOO FAKE June 30, 2011

    Nicki Minaj shouldnt even be on here. I feel Gaga deserves to be crowned the NEW Queen of Pop. because in 3 short years, she’s toured the world, became a billionaire, sold millions, put out 3 albums, and Revolutionized Pop through her Singing, Dancing, Fashion, Production, Creativity, etc. As much as people say she steals, please provide evidence of it, Her videos are usually very original, I dont think ANYONE can TOP Bad Romance right now. However.

    The other list of people on here, make this list questionable. Rihanna??? the most boringest piece of Std’s on the planet, over Goddess of Music Beyonce??? Are they kidding, yes Rihanna got more Radio play this year but Rihanna aint s***!!!!!! she doesnt do anything but look pretty. WTF??? Gaga works her ass off at least she deserves to be #1, but im still trippin on this b**** Rihanna making it to number 3?? For what??? What did she do this year besides take off her clothes??

  18. MaZ June 30, 2011

    L O L

  19. ADJOA June 30, 2011

    THIS LIST WAS COMPILED USING FIGURES FROM THE LAST TWO YEARS, IF IT WHERE FROM 2000, GAGA WONT BE NO1 SINCE SHE IS RELATIVELY NEW

  20. YALL ARE TOO FAKE June 30, 2011

    @ the dumbasses who keep mentioning Madonna & Britney

    Yes they revolutioned Pop, BACK IN THE DAY!!! THis is a new generation, make way for new talent.

    Umm this is a CURRENT list . Madonna has not released an album since Hard Candy back in 2007. Its 2011, so a “New List” is created. Britney is still here, but her music hasnt TOPPED anything since “In The Zone”, Britney is officially a record has-been, she autotunes everything, she struggles singing live, so she is replaced, its life. its the music industry, new talent is always emerging, Gaga has been banking since she came out, and proved that she wasnt a one hit wonder, her accomplishments in 3 small years are so extreme that she really does deserve this. No shade to anyone but forreal.

  21. ISTANN4GAGA June 30, 2011

    yes,Beyonce should have been over Rihanna but Taylor Swift should NOT be #2 on that list even if she hit the 1million mark….(sorry,Taylor Swift’s #1fan)

    The Fame was a POP classic so I definitely could see gaga on the list.

  22. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout June 30, 2011

    QUEENBEY WILL BE ON MTV/BET in 19minutes and vh1 1hr

  23. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN June 30, 2011

    TAYLOR SWIFT SHOULD BE AT NUMBER 1, AND NOT BEHIND LADY GAGA AT 2!

  24. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    Agreed with YA’LL ARE TOO FAKE,

    Gaga does deserve this crown. She’s the Queen of our time. And to those saying that it’s Madonna is forever the queen, listen, Madonna ain’t always gonna be the Queen. Same with MJ. They’re not always going to be the monarchs of pop music people… Someone will snatch that crown like Madonna and MJ did to her predecessors.

  25. Anne June 30, 2011

    #5 is not bad considering Beyonce is mainly considered an R&B artist though she obviously also has a high Pop ranking also. Also Beyonce was in a group for many years.

  26. mehtney this way June 30, 2011

    YASSS I DIDN’T HAVE TO CHECK THE LIST TO KNOW LEGEND GAGA IS @CTUALLY THE QUEEN OF POP.

    ONLY “4” YEARS IN THE GAME.

  27. mehtney this way June 30, 2011

    LEGEND GAGA IS RUNNIN THIS MUTHA

    BORN TO DOMINATE:

    1.6 MILLION IN US
    3 MILLION WW

  28. Nana Yaw June 30, 2011

    I’m so happy. Gaga and Taylor all the way! @ Adjoa how are you?

  29. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare June 30, 2011

    As long as Madonna Louise Ciccone has breath in her body, and even when she is carried to her pop tomb, she is the Queen of Pop.

    I hate when Rolling Stone does this s***. You know they crowned Justin Timberlake the new King of Pop in 2006, right?

    This has nothing to do with Gaga. I LOVE her. But 2 1/2 albums does not a queen make.

    In the words of @Carl, “bye.”

  30. King B June 30, 2011

    Rather than get mad, I would just like to point out that this magazine in general is full of s***, and this list should not on any level be taken seriously.

    And I am happy for Gaga, but RS’ criteria for placing these women is retarded.

  31. Nana Yaw June 30, 2011

    Taylor Swift should be no. 1. She is an amazing entertainer.

  32. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    Lmfao. @Taylor Swifts Number 1 Fan, how? Just how? The b**** got famous mostly because of that little Kanye incident. Haha. Sit down.

  33. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN June 30, 2011

    @MusicFan Her first album sold millions actually….So maybe you need to see your b*** down?

  34. King B June 30, 2011

    @ MusicFan:

    There can be new kings and queens, but the originals never lose their titles.

  35. M June 30, 2011

    BEYONCE STANS ARE MADDDDDDDDDDD HAAAAAAAAAA UR GIRL IS A #FLOP

  36. Queen Beyonce Stann June 30, 2011

    What’s The Big Deal?
    This Magazine Is A Big Flop Because They Call All The “Hot” Female Artist “Queen” Of Pop!
    They Have Called:
    BEYONCE
    Britney
    Madonna
    Katy Perry
    Rihanna
    Ke$ha (Really RS?)
    & Now Lady GAGa

    Who’s Next? Selena Gomez?

    #KingB2011

  37. FameKills June 30, 2011

    i kinda agree with the top 5.

    even though Grape Juice doesnt cover her, i am not oblivious to the fact that Taylor Swift is SLAYINGG.

    Rihanna is only #3 because she has had a VERY strong 8 months with Loud, its truly a great pop album.

    Britney is just there because of her history

    Beyonce should be higher, but hey… what can you do.

    oh & i believe that Kelly is Kelly CLARKSON

  38. mehtney this way June 30, 2011

    WHO RUN THIS MUTHA?

  39. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    I love Gaga, but I do think that Madonna still remains the Queen of Pop in general, but at the moment, the Queen of Pop is Gaga. I honestly think that Gaga is going to be the next. People need to stop acting like no one can take MJ’s or Madonna’s crown, and if anything, the only one in the industry that has potential to take Madonna’s crown is Gaga. No one else. Not Taylor Swift, not Nicki, not Britney, and DEFINITELY not Rihanna.

    #GagaNextQueenOfPop

    • Darslow January 26, 2013

      No one has taken MJ’s crown yet. No one has even come close. Madonna – her days of being the Queen are over. Clearly, Lady gaga is that chick.

  40. FameKills June 30, 2011

    go Gaga #BornThisWay

  41. Nana Yaw June 30, 2011

    Taylor Swift’s recent album (Speak Now) is the album of the decade. The songs were all pop except “Mean” which was country.

  42. GAGA 3 YEARS SLAYYYED ALL YOUR FAVS June 30, 2011

    THE NEW QUEEN OF POP!!!!!!!! LADY GAGA!!!!!!!!!

    AT GAGA FANS HERE’S A PREVIEW OF HER NEW MUSIC VIDEO!!!! I MADE IT INTO A GIF!!!!!!!! HOPE YOU GUYS LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!

  43. King B June 30, 2011

    @ Daniel:

    Little boy, please. If Taylor Swift is the Queen of Pop, then Soulja Boy is the best rapper alive. Even Katy f****** Perry would deserve that title a whole lot more than her.

    NEXT ====>>>

  44. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare June 30, 2011

    @Musicfan, I am not saying that Madonna will ALWAYS be Queen or Michael will ALWAYS be King, but it is WAY too premature to de-throne Legend’s-period.

    Rolling Stone, in so many ways, attempts to skirt around this fact by saying “this generation’s Queen.” Cool. Lady Gaga can be this generation’s “Queen.” But Madonna’s mountain is a high one to climb–that’s all I’m saying.

  45. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN June 30, 2011

    @music fan Also Taylors second album came out the year before the kanye incident and sold 592,000 in its first week!
    So your talking out your backside

  46. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    In my opinion, the only albums of the decade are as follows…

    -My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Kanye West
    -Born This Way, Lady Gaga
    -4, Beyonce

    Adele’s just way too boring, and so is Taylor Swift.

    @Taylor Swift Number 1 Fan, Can Taylor Swift even sing well?

    Gaga is more talented than Taylor Swift.

  47. Nana Yaw June 30, 2011

    @Music Fan, Taylor’s first album sold over 5.5 million copies worldwide.

  48. Onyx June 30, 2011

    nobody can take the crown to her majesty Madonna, i like gaga as the princess of pop but i dont see any of these girls as the queen of pop. i dont know why rihanna, taylor, beyonce and others are even in that list, the only female to be compare with Madge is gaga and doesn’t even comes close, rolling stone has to show some respect 4 Madonna she’s not dead. LONG LIVE THE QUEEN!

  49. Queen Beyonce Stann June 30, 2011

    This List Rates These Females From The Last 2 YEARS!
    How The F*** Do You Become A “Queen” In 2 YEARS?
    I Guess Now A Days It Only Takes A Number 1 Album And Selling It For .99 Cents!
    Wow I Can Finally Say, “I’m Finally Impressed By Gaga” 🙂 *Sarcasm*

    If ANYTHING The Only B**** Who’s The Queen of Pop Is BEYONCE

    #KingB2011

  50. Jbvanilla June 30, 2011

    CHRISTIANA #15 this list is bullocks….. seriously….. but im happy to see robyn made the list…..YEZZIR…. but honestly every biased opinion aside, you dont become a queen by ONLY being out 5 years, you become a REAL queen by paying your DUES, working HARD, and having true LONGEVITY, taking the ups with the downs…. EVERY real queen, yes even daddy michael have had to pay their dues…… every real queen madonna, mariah, whitney, michael, tina, and prince have all had failed projects, bad media, and some real bumps in the road, but what made them the BEST is that they were album to come back and be on top, and make some real music….. so in all honesty i do think Gaga, RIhanna, Kesha, miley, katy, taylor nor adele should be on this list, UNTIL they have at least been reigning for OVER 5 to 7 years…. because REAL queens like christina, Britney, Beyonce, pink, and Robyn have been putting out great music ALL for over a f****** decade and dont deserve to be questioned just because some twat of the moment comes in with some catchy chorus i.e. rihanna katy kesha…. and dont get me wrong because i own every album of EVERY woman on this list…… and while Christina and Beyonce are HANDS DOWN my fav strictly due to talent they have all worked SO hard and put in the REAL man hours to get to where they are…..that is why they are ALL QUEENS in every since of the word….. granted give GaGa the full 10 years the others have had she will be doing some serious damage……

    but if i HAD to make a list, based on TALENT, MATERIAL, and LONGEVITY comprised of their entire reign not just as of late i.e. the new zombie spears)…!

    1) Britney Spears
    2) Beyonce
    3) GaGa
    4) Christina
    5) P!nk
    6) Kelly Clarckson
    7) Katy
    8) Rihanna
    9) Robyn
    10) Adele
    11) Miley
    12) Ke$ha
    13) Nicki
    14) Shakira

    TAylor isn’t pop and i dont know what f****** CArrie they are talking about…. and if i don’t know her by first name obviously she doesn’t deserve to be on this list….. JUST SAYING!!!

    OH and FYI…. i am a 150% hardcore KELLY ROWLAND STAN….. 🙂

  51. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare June 30, 2011

    @KING B, “Rather than get mad, I would just like to point out that this magazine in general is full of s***, and this list should not on any level be taken seriously.”

    Yes!!! But my pressure has ALREADY shot up. lol! 🙂

  52. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN June 30, 2011

    @King B Well depends what you base the queen of pop on.. if its sales.. then Taylors in with a shout….

  53. push101 June 30, 2011

    Ummmm Wheres Jennifer Lopez?!

  54. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout June 30, 2011

    ALERT: typo detected
    QUEENBEY is on BET/MTV NOW and will be on VH1 in 1 mintue

  55. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    @BITCHICAN’TEVENSPELLWELFARE, No don’t get me wrong I agree with you. But some people like to say things like: “Madonna will ALWAYS be Queen of Pop” when clearly that is nothing but a load of scheiße.

  56. ISTANN4GAGA June 30, 2011

    TBQH I think that Gaga,Beyonce,Rihanna,and Katy(if she plays her cards right.) could all be considered THIS generation’s legends….

    I can’t really place Adele in a genre,and Taylor Swift may be pop to some of y’all but she is country to me *kanyeshrug*

  57. Claire June 30, 2011

    None of them should be considered as the Queen of Pop and I love some of the people on the list there is only one Queen of Pop and that is Madonna and always will be, its just like having a list with the male artist saying which one is the King of Pop when we all know thats MJ and always will be.

  58. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN June 30, 2011

    @Jbvanilla Carrie underwood? The most successful person ever to come from american idol?

  59. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    @JBVannilla, if your list is based on talent, may I ask why Britney Spears is even in the Top 5?

  60. carl s June 30, 2011

    NO 1 WILL TAKE THIS LIST SERIOUSLY A BUNCH OF BULL S*** RIHANNA ABOVE BEYONCE ITS THE WHAT THE HELL??? EVERY 1 KNOW THAT JUST IS NOT RIGHT

  61. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    Here’s my list as to who is the current Queen of Pop excluding Madonna who is the reigning Queen…

    1. Lady Gaga
    2. Rihanna
    3. Katy Perry
    4. Britney Spears
    5. Beyonce

    This is not based off talent. That’s why Rihanna is number two and Beyonce is number 5. If it was for talent, I feel Beyonce would be number two. This is just the past 4 years.

  62. ISTANN4GAGA June 30, 2011

    S/N Beysus is on TV Now

  63. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare June 30, 2011

    @MUSICFAN, agreed. Love “Scheiße,” by the way. 🙂

  64. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 30, 2011

    WHY DO WE DO THIS???Why do we need to proclaim someone the king/the queen every once in a while??It’s cool to do that every 50 years looking at LEGACIES but not every 5 years based on…MOMENTUM.MERCY ON US…

  65. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 30, 2011

    And also “Artists active in the late 2000???Why didn’t they just say “Lady GaGa, our winner, and then some other artists that have something in common with her to form a category”??? It’s obvious the list was made to bring Lady GaGa’s buzz back…

  66. ON88 June 30, 2011

    OUCH I guess Madonna died huh? This list is a joke!!! LOL if anything Britney should be #1 yall b****** have forgotten that before any of those girls on that list came out yall were popping your p****** to Brit. SHADE. Yes she’s a zombie nowadays but that head shaving moment is the most EPIC moment in pop history pay respect b******.

    But congrats to Gaga I guess LOL <3

  67. BEYONCE>>>the music industry June 30, 2011

    LMFAO Rolling Stone says they were looking to crown somebody with the tiara that have hits 2009-2011. We all know KING B IASF was closing out in late 2009. Gaga have had 3 albums since then and R**** have collabos and a full album. After 4 makes MUSICAL HISTORY, these basic b****** will disappear compeletly.

  68. Nana Yaw June 30, 2011

    Taylor Swift’s first album was “Country”, but her last two albums (Fearless and Speak Now) are “Pop music”.

  69. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 30, 2011

    Taylor Swift the runner up for Queen Of Pop?? THE GIRL SINGS COUNTRY with VERY slight pop influences…NICKI MINAJ ON THE LIST??? She’s an mc (a good one/ a bad one, I won’t judge). She’s influenced by pop, but seriously??? Miley???No comment…

  70. King B June 30, 2011

    @ BITCHICANTEVENSPELLWELFARE:

    LOL, don’t worry about it. This is the same magazine that considers Bob Dylan a better singer than Freddie Mercury.

    @ Daniel:

    Yeah, well this list clearly isn’t based SOLELY on sales, so Taylor has no business being there.

    @QueenBey:

    Thanks for the notice!

  71. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    @BitchiCan’tEvenSpellWelfare, Me too, I heard it’s her next single. I’m sure it’ll be the summer hit.

    @ON88, please sit down because the most epic moment in pop history in general was probably when MJ did the moonwalk. The most epic moment in RECENT pop history was when Lady Gaga bled on stage during her performance of Paparazzi, NOT some drunk high ass b**** shaving her damn head. Take a seat to the left..

    _/ _/ _/….

  72. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 30, 2011

    2009-2011. 3 years??? They could say ‘Favorite Female”, “Best selling female”, “Female with the most buzz”, “Female with the best label”, “Female whose ass we’re kissing for an interview next month”, but “THE QUEEN”??? A queen REIGNS. 3 years ain’t no reign…

  73. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout June 30, 2011

    I smell B******* and HORSE S*** :
    Isnt this the same magazine that crowned Nicki Minaj The New Queen of Hip Hop?????
    Nuff said…… 🙂

  74. S*** June 30, 2011

    chloe

    June 30, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    CLEARLY talent was excluded when making this list. but kudos to gaga and beyonce for making the top 5!
    _________________

    I 2ND that gesture. How the hell can you even be Eligible for such a title WITHOUT TALENT??? If you’re not Beyonce then you’re NOT the QUEEN OF POP!!!

  75. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    Yeah Taylor Swift is country pop.

  76. Jbvanilla June 30, 2011

    @MusicFan …. the list is not SOELY based on talent…. and yes as of LATE britney truely is s****** LIVE…. but her material is still good, and as a early 90’s child, i remember Britney as a true BEAST on stage…. DC even opened up for her 1 solo tour…..

    @TaylorSwiftsNumber1Fan … ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, that CArrie….. OMG i f****** LOVE her carnival ride was the s***….. but she still isnt Pop music sooooooooo, maybe she can take Reba’s crown as the Country Queen……

  77. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN June 30, 2011

    @King B Based on your opinon she doesnt, but rolling stone agree with me in the fact she does… so sorry but you’ve been out voted.
    Taylor swift is massive, sorry if you can’t take that, but its something your just gonna have to get used too.

  78. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    Honestly, if it was based on talent. The top two would be Gaga and Beyonce. Katy can’t sing, Rihanna can’t do nothing, same with Britney. Oh and Taylor Swift can’t even sing all that great.

  79. Prince&Queen Bey June 30, 2011

    Queen Beyonce Stann u took the words right out of mouth! HOW IN THE F*** DO YOU BECOME A QUEEN IN 2 YEARS???????? R they SERIOUS????

    This list is such a JOKE!!!!

  80. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 30, 2011

    I won’t even talk about Christina being on the bottom of the list, because bandwangon riders made that decision…

  81. #1QueenGaga June 30, 2011

    HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!! I TOLD YOU SHE’S THE QUEEN OF POP!!!!!!

    KNEEL DOWN TO THE QUEEN B******!!!!!!!!!!!!

  82. LTM June 30, 2011

    from 2009-2011 katy perry had one album out and she raked so high up. im happy, even if this list is meaningless b*******

    p.s nicki manaj doesnt need to be on this list, she just recently got her own top 10 song

  83. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    @JBVANILLA, I see. Well, Britney never COULD sing though, but yeah Britney was a beast on stage. And talent isn’t JUST singing, it’s also dancing, having stage presence, producing etc.

  84. African( Senegal ) loooove breezy!!!!!! June 30, 2011

    @YALL ARE TOO FAKE
    hahahaha you gooooo!!! I love you cause your comments are always objectives & right!!!!

  85. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 30, 2011

    So, what about crowning a new pop queen tomorrow??? HISTORY CHANGES FAST…Let’s crown a pop queen every day…IF WE DO THAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO TAKE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY SERIOUSLY

    @MusicFan Beyonce isnt full on pop neither, and shes on the list aswell.

  87. GangsterA June 30, 2011

    ummmmmmmmmmm no but at least bey made the list .roll eyes.

  88. THE TRUTH THAT YOU WILL NEVER ADMIT June 30, 2011

    Not a single f****** mother f***** of all the b****** that commented in this f****** site has mensionned the real name of the f****** real Queen of Pop and Music that has inflenced every mother f****** female singer that was mensioned here.
    The TRUE QUEEN OF POP IS AND ALWAYS BE JANET JACKSON AS LONG AS SHE IS ALIVE AS WAS HER BROTHER THE KING UNTILL HE LEFT THIS WORLD.

    NO WAY YOU CAN CALL THESE SINGERS INCLUDING MADONNA A QUEEN OF POP OR SOMETHING BECAUSE NOONE I SAY NOONE OF THEM ALL HAVE REACHED JANET’S TALENT EVER!!!

  89. LTM June 30, 2011

    @MusicFan
    katy perry can sing. just because her voice isnt strong like gagas doesnt mean she cant sing. just because your voice is strong doesnt mean your a great singer

  90. itsbkinthemix June 30, 2011

    Gaga, Beyonce, Pink, and just a few others I understand making this list.

  91. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 30, 2011

    Needless to say, whoever wrote the post with the shade at the end is in danger… YOU BETTER RUN

  92. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    Honestly, I don’t see why people love Cristina so much. Her album Stripped and Back To Basics is GREAT, and she has a great voice, but I mean this chart was made for 2008-now.

    NEWS F****** FLASH!!! CRISTINA FLOPPED ALL OVER 2008-2011. There was no hit from her. Except maybe ‘Keeps Getting Better’ which was a modest hit. So why are ya’ll complaining that she’s on the bottom of the list? I mean wow… Honestly, if this list was based on talent it would be sooo much different. Britney, Katy, Rihanna, etc, would be at the lower levels of the chart.

  93. Jbvanilla June 30, 2011

    POINT BLANK AND PERIOD….. MADONNA will hold her title for at LEAST another 20 years, strictly because she aint dead and she wont stop making music until………….

    AND HOLD THE F*** UP, WHERE THE F*** IS KKKKKKKYYYYYYYYLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE…….. if the UHmazing ROBYN made the list then I KNOW FOR DDDAAAAYYYYYUUUUMMMMMM sure KYLIE MINOUGE made the list……. THAT FACT RIGHT THERE PROVES THAT ROLLINGSTONE JUST PULLED THIS LIST OUT OF THEIR RETARTED ASSSSSSEEEEEESSSSSSS…… go s*** urself rolling stones…… no one even respects you as leading musical magazine as it is…… f****** TWATS!

  94. King B June 30, 2011

    @Daniel:

    Obviously since this s*** rag arranged this list to YOUR liking, their opinion is the Gospel for you, but most people aren’t going to take this list seriously because nobody takes Rolling Stone magazine seriously anymore.

  95. Dollar$ign$kills June 30, 2011

    LMFAO!!!!! Ke$ha is top 10 but Xtina isnt? Nicki MANaj is even on the list? I think its cool Ke$ha ranked on here, but this list is 100% b******* and shouldnt be taken seriously

  96. meqnd June 30, 2011

    Why they shading Madonna????? Wow.. she’s been out forever.. smh. Everyone has they’re opinions magazines etc.. billboard crowned beyonce the new queen of POP 2 yrs ago.. but shes lower with rollingstone.. I discredit the entire list tho.. Madonna is not dead.. and beyonce is on a whole fifteenth level these girls on this list.. so let rihanna get some props for sumthin.besides #1 singles. Congrats rhirhi

  97. #1QueenGaga June 30, 2011

    HOLY S*** HATERS ARE HELLA PRESSED THAT GAGA IS THE QUEEN!!!!

    YOU MAD HUH?!?!?!? DEAL WITH IT!!!!!

  98. Olip June 30, 2011

    Ok, i guess the 2 reigning Queens of right now music are confirmed.

    Lady Gaga = Queen Of Pop

    Mary J. Blige = Queen Of R&B

    I Think i can deal with that !

    ….(Even tho i think Britney is a little bit more worthy of being Queen of Pop but Gaga kills it right now !)

  99. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN June 30, 2011

    @King B This must be true blue… No one else gets this angry at me for sticking up for Taylor swift.
    “No body takes rolling stone magazine seriously anymore” I might be wrong, but i dont think you can speak for the whole world can you? Im sorry but i had to pull you up on that….

  100. #1QueenGaga June 30, 2011

    WE DID IT LIL MONSTERS!!!!!! BE MADE GAGA THE BIGGEST MOST POWERFUL SUPERSTAR IN ALL OF POP ROYALTY.

    BORN TO SLAY!!!!!

  101. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 30, 2011

    I know who they forgot to include…REBECCA BLACK…How did they forget her???

  102. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    @TAYLORSWIFTFAN, Uhm… When did I protest against that? We have to remember that none of these b****** are full on pop. Full on pop is Elton John and ABBA. That’s true traditional pop music.

    Gaga isn’t pure, real pop, she’s house with pop elements. Her recent album Born This Way also shows a change in genre so that would make her pop with house and rock influences.

    Katy is electropop, britney is electropop with some dubstep influences recently, Kesha is electropop, etc. So no one REALLY IS pure pop.

  103. Rosie June 30, 2011

    Madonna Is the QUEEN OF POP, Michael Jackson is the KING OF POP…. Period
    Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Beyonce are legends in the making so we call them the Princesses of Pop.

  104. Dee Dee June 30, 2011

    How in the h*ll did Taylor even make the list? She’s a country singer.

  105. #1QueenGaga June 30, 2011

    THAT’S RIGHT STIFFNEY SPEARS!!!!! YOU WILL NEVER BE THE QUEEN. YOU’RE NOTHING BUT A MANUFACTURED B**** WHO CAN’T DO S*** THESE DAYS!!!!

    HAVE A SEAT WITH THE REST OF THESE MANUFACTURED H***!!!!!

  106. jojo June 30, 2011

    um first of all…………this list started at 2009 until now it mesured album sales,single sales,tours,view on youtube,social networks,radio airplay,hot 100 hits,and album reviews sooooo overall rihanna is #3 #staymad……..but it actually quite unfair because #1 taylor and carrie and nicki are not pop stars and #2 this list is kinda made so gaga comes out on top cuz in 2009 through now have been gaga years…..so for people like rihanna.beyonce.britney.xtina it was kinda unfair cuz they had so much more success than gaga prior to 2009 and through now too but still if they had started at 2005 (which would have been a good half mark) gaga wouldnt be #1 soooo yea .

    June 30, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    Here’s my list as to who is the current Queen of Pop excluding Madonna who is the reigning Queen…

    1. Lady Gaga
    2. Rihanna
    3. Katy Perry
    4. Britney Spears
    5. Beyonce

    This is not based off talent. That’s why Rihanna is number two and Beyonce is number 5. If it was for talent, I feel Beyonce would be number two. This is just the past 4 years.

    NEWS F****** FLASH:Keeps Gettin Better peaked higher than Judas. Keeps Gettin Better:A Decade of Hits sold over a million world wide. The Burlesque Soundtrack sold over a million world wide as well. Add in Bionic, and Christina has sold more albums in that time frame then Ke$ha has, yet Ke$ha is ranked higher? And if this list was based on talent, GaGa would be on the lower end next to Katy and Rihanna

    HAHA this is a JOKE how can u do Top 16 21st century list and not include JLO, MARIAH CAREY & WHITNEY HOUSTON like where there dead in this century, did they not sell any records/break records and gaga is no.1 she’s only been mainstream for like 2yrs now + taylor and not so new comers like rihanna like really?

  111. AndySaysSmile June 30, 2011

    I’m sorry but they have failed to add longevity to this list of ‘Pop Queens’. If that had anything to do with this list Britney should be #1. Beyonce is the Queen of R&B. I never have and never will consider her as a pop singer. She got souuuuuuul. Let’s see where the likes of Rihanna, Taylor and GaGa are in 10 years. That would be more accurate.
    Britney, Beyonce and Christina are and should be the only one legible for this title. The rest of these girls are their jesters. Longevity is the hardest thing to come by and I have a feeling it won’t be soon before all the crazy costumes and gimmicks will work against GaGa.

  112. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    @S***, uhm, what would your top 5 look like? I honestly think that Lady Gaga although doesn’t have a voice like Beyonce, that’s not the ONLY thing that makes someone talented… MJ didn’t have the best voice ever and you and I both know the legend that he is… So, what exactly is your problem..?

  113. King B June 30, 2011

    Boy, EVERYONE on this blog knows I’m True Blue! It’s amazing that you haven’t figured this out by now!

    Go ask anyone who’s knowledgeable about music what they think about RS magazine. Go on.

  114. jojo June 30, 2011

    also britney is nooooooooooo dam queen of pop or princess……im soryy but u brtney stans are dumb as f** calling her a queen & s***

    #1. madoona and janet are the queens
    #2. brits music pretty much all sounds the same and she talks about the same thing over and over unlike madonna.janet.rihanna.gaga who change their sound.image.and things they say on every record
    #3. britney at the rate she is going now will not have a career in five years cuz she is a mess
    #4 u should be happy she was 4 cuz she is a mess.org

  115. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    @S***, I KNOW, you did NOT just put Katy, Britney, and R**** above Gaga! Hahahaha, you did NOT! Lmfao, I respected you for appreciating talent like Beyonce, but how you gonna put basic untalented h*** like Rihanna, Katy and Britney above Gaga? I mean are you sure your list is based off talent? I mean damn… Lol. Gurl bye.

    @Musicfan…. Thats Because XTina is a f****** BEAST…… she has the voice, can dance enough to entertain, and has stage presence like a muthata f***** and makes some truley bombass pop music….. back to basics is my favorite….. and BIONIC is criminally underated in the fact that its was a REALLY good pop album….everyone just wanted to jump on the i hate xtina bandwagon…….

    MJ never had a failed studio album,so lets get that straight.Number two,no one will take his ‘king of pop’ title.The only person who can remove his crown,is god himself.Gaga already snatched madonna’s crown talent wise,and she is rapidly overtaking her success wise.

  120. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 30, 2011

    @MUSICFAN Have you actually listened to Bionic, because it slays anything Miley, Ke$ha and Taylor have come out with? And you got exactly the point.Christina underperformed/flopped (call it whatever) in these 3 years.This is why I think it’s pointless and even disrespectful to crown a queen based on 3 years

  121. Put That On Everything June 30, 2011

    This list just shows the lack of talent needed to be a top pop artist today, when I saw Rihanna, Britney, and Taylor ahead of Bey i started LMAO like really, so cute face, tight waist, and studio voice with some auto tune = today’s pop star.

  122. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN June 30, 2011

    @MusicFan I know you never, but a lot of people are saying Taylor shouldnt be in the list, cause shes seen as country, but some of her music is pop… in the same way, some of beyonces music is pop, but shes mostly RnB.

  123. RHI RHI IS QUEEN June 30, 2011

    5.Rihanna

  125. MusicFan June 30, 2011

    @ASAP, yes I did listen to Bionic, it was my album last summer. I loved it. It was great. I never said it wasn’t, but this list is based off numbers if I’m not mistaken, so therefore, that’s the reason Cristina is down in the list. So what I’m saying is, why are people so shocked and are complaining that Xtina is so low. Who said that list was based on talent?

  126. ISTANN4GAGA June 30, 2011

    I’m sorry,you may not like gaga or her voice but in my eyes,gaga would be near the top of the list…

  127. TRUE TALENT June 30, 2011

    @MusicFan you a damn liar,mj had one of the best voices of all time,he was a vocal best.His voice shits on gaga’s in any decade that he reigned.

    mj’s cough>>>>gaga’s voice

  128. 100% Real June 30, 2011

    I’m not surprised that Lady GaGa is #1. She has a huge following. And, she’s been on her grind consistently since she debut in 2008. Let’s not forget that she sold a little over 1 million albums of, “Born This Way” in her first week of it’s release. I agree that Rihanna is not the best singer or performer out there (even though I like her anyway), but I think what makes Rihanna appealing to the public is her catchy songs and above all else, her personality. She’s like the black Angelina Jolie. She’s edgy and doesn’t give a damn what people think or say about her. She just flows with things. If you like her, cool. If you, that’s still cool. She just seems like she couldn’t care less about it either way. For some reason, people are drawn to her because of that.

  129. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) June 30, 2011

    “Honestly, I don’t see why people love Cristina so much. Her album Stripped and Back To Basics is GREAT, and she has a great voice, but I mean this chart was made for 2008-now.” This is what you said and I assumed you didn’t like her MUSIC. (I’m not attacking you or anything)

    if yall read they only counted years 2009-2011

    every generation has pop queens overall the queens of pop are

    1.madonna and this genertion has lady gaga and rihanna
    2.janet
    4.celine
    5.britney
    6.beyonce
    7.christina

    i excluded whitney and mariah cuz they are more R&B not reaally pop ..they dont make dance music very much at all.

  138. Onyx June 30, 2011

    It’s wrong to think that every generation has a new Queen of Pop, it’s ridiculous and contradictory. I think it’s a linguistic mistake, what a younger generation defines as Queen of Pop is actually a Superstar that’s the word they should be using. Lady GaGa is a Superstar, there were lots of Superstar like her and even bigger than her throughout he years, but non of them were Queen of Pop because that title is already taken by Madonna and it’s part of culture and history. It would be like asking “who’s the new Alexander the Great”. There’s no such thing, there is only one Alexander the Great, and there is only one Queen of Pop. Being Queen of Pop has nothing to do with record sales, YouTube popularity or award winning, it’s something more important, it has to do with History and the place the artist occupies in worldwide culture. To attempt to name someone Queen of Pop you should wait at least 20 years to see hou much that artist has accomplished in terms of music and culture. Madonna is not just the Queen of Pop, she is Culture, she defend Gay people, Black People, she challenged the Catholic Church, and that’s is Culture my friends, for that MADONNA IS AND WILL BE FOREVER THE QUEEN OF POP

  139. jojo June 30, 2011

  141. craig June 30, 2011

    Beyonce has no emotion in her voice and she does runs because she likes to hear herself sing. they never fit within the frame work of the song. the only song she ever did that moved me was “if i were a boy” and b. c jean did it better!! emotionally connect Beyonce!!

  146. Put That On Everything June 30, 2011

    I like gaga but she’s no queen of pop,she has only relase two albums and an EP and that corny cheesy Born This Way album doesn’t scream queen of pop and most her songs sounds like either a Madonna remake with flaky simple lyrics or very over produce.

    @Ture Talent You sound like a complete nut job to call another human being a god or really that mess up in the head and how gaga snatch Madonna crown when it’s clear that everything that Gaga does screams Madonna.

    Talent wise Gaga has a decent singing voice but the dancing is just as bad as the new Britney , if this list was base mostly on talent then it’s Bey, Pink, and then Gaga.

    gaga VS britney

    Dancer: britney (old brit)
    Performer: gaga (but wit old brit maybe a tie)

    gaga vs Katty:

    “To talk like a Gaga stan you must act as if pop music did not exist before “Poker Face”. As with most stans, Gaga stans have no sense of history and seem to believe that Lady Gaga invented the following things:

    Water
    Dance Music
    Pop Music
    Gay Rights

  160. HEAVYMETALLOVER June 30, 2011

    Firstable Gaga is a world megastar. You should travel outside US to understand that Taylor Swith is a nobody. Rihanna, Perry, Kesha are just top 40 splash. Only Gaga has a global and multilevel impact.
    But Queen or King of __ doesnt matter.
    Gaga is the only one who makes interessant music in pop territory. And BTW is a way better pop statement than the uninspired craps produced for pop tarts to fill the charts.

    Regardless of what anyone says Madonna will ALWAYS be seen at the Queen of Pop and Britney will ALWAYS been seen as the Princess. It’s does matter how long they’ve been in the game or how many newcomewra arrive. When Madonna and Britney continue to make music thy will continue to keep those titles. I don’t care how much gaga, Beyonces, Katy, kesha, have sold in the past few years. Those titles madonna and britney have earned. And I don’t give a f*CK what people say about Britneys talent, when she’s done with the business her talent will overshadowed her breakdown days. POINT BLANK!!!

    rare dressing does nothing to defend the gay community, black people and fight for equality as Madonna did, Lady Gaga extravagant dresses tell me how it helps people. Madonna was that women could use s** as much as men do. if Gaga, beyonce, britney, j.lo and other can be almost naked on stage is thank to Madonna revolution of S**. Lady Gaga stated that she is the biggest madonna fan, go to YouTube and watch Gaga on leno.

    @KingB I seen that post lol….you might as well put @QueenBeyonceStann there as well…their dislike for gaga is almost Identical to me.

  182. Those That Cannot Do, Stan July 1, 2011

    LOVED Gaga’s first & second album but I’m not up for blowing smoke up anyone’s ass simply because they try hard.

    Born This Way…something between a cheerleading anthem and a gospel chorus. Edge of Glory…80’s done wrong. Hair…what is this s***?

    Gaga has her devoted stans and fans who’ve pledged allegiance but for casual listeners who will only buy if the music is appealing and she proves its worth it so far I’ve been highly disappointed.

    Maybe the 4th song will be good to me because the first 3 had me looking at my watch.

  183. 100% Real July 1, 2011

    It’s funny how some folks are mad with Rihanna for being #3 on this list and Beyonce is #5. I think you’re getting upset with the wrong person. Last I check, Rolling Stones compiled this list, not Rihanna. So, what are you all upset with her for?

    So, you can be declared the “Queen of Pop” without making sustainable music or having longevity in the music industry? Now you can simply pay a few people to watch your videos repeatedly and that makes you qualified to become the new “Queen of Pop”? It’s no longer based on the quality of music but who has the best marketing scheme? 2 fo 1 Best Buy gimmicks and 99 cent CD scams qualify you to become the new “Queen of Pop” huh? Wow…just WOW?!?!

    the people on here are just too stupid, they keep mentioning Madonna, Madonna is NOT RELEVANT IN TODAY’s MUSIC RIGHT NOW, THIS LIST IS CREATED FROM THE PRESENT VIEWS OF POP. Maybe back in the 90s Madonna would’ve been Number one, but this is 2011, is Madonna on the radio and really in media right now???/ NO!
    GAGA is, not because of her weirdness, she’s a talented musisican, and a human rights activist. Seriously, Yes Madonna will always be queen ,that title is not Gone. It’s just RE-AWARDED to Gaga, who also deserves it in her life right now.

  189. YALL ARE TOO FAKE July 1, 2011

    People keep saying Music is Dead, & This Chart doesnt mean s*** , That may be somewhat true. However Your still alive and your still lisiting to this so called Zombie Music, Its not going anywhere. Whats the f****** complaining for? Its just a list, no artists needs to be dragged out because of a list.

    HOW HIGH SCHOOL IS THIS SITE???????

  190. linker nippel July 1, 2011

    madonna is RELEVANT trust me honey
    just because she has no album since 2009 ???
    come on we all know that madonna is the queen of pop and her next album will be on top again and tell me do you know another artist like madonna she is 30 years in this industry and on top she make hits since 30 years ….lets talk in 20 years again how is the queen of top …… i think lady gaga, britney and xtina had the best chance´s

    @GAGA 3 YEARS SLAYYYED ALL YOUR FAVS, Uhm… I dragged S*** obviously because he/she done bounced. I said I’m done because I just can’t with people saying Rihanna is more talented than Gaga. I mean… Wow…

  198. MusicFan July 1, 2011

    Here’s where I stand: I know Madonna is still Queen, but that doesn’t mean Gaga won’t come up to her snatch that crown right out of her. It only took Madonna from 1979 to 1984 for people to start calling her Queen. If it only took Madonna about 5 years then I’m sure by next year it won’t be a problem to call Gaga Queen of Pop. Gaga’s done WAYYYY more than what Madonna did the first 5 years of her career in only 3. So ya’ll can’t be mad. If anything, Gaga is on her way and is already doing more than what Madonna did her first five years.

  199. MusicFan July 1, 2011

    It’s funny, this is the performance that made Madonna the Queen of Pop when Gaga’s performances S*** and I mean S*** TURDS ON this performance.

    I honestly don’t know why anyone in this post is taking this list seriously. This is the same magazine that said Justin Timberlake was the new King of pop, Nicki Minaj was the new Queen of Hip-Hop & that had Snooki on the cover like she’s actually relevant. This magazine has truly gone downhill and has no credibility. U really need to seek Jesus when u put Ke$ha on a list of anything except dumpster diving Queen.

  202. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare July 1, 2011

    @MUSICFAN, although I love Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” performance, I would not necessarily say that THIS is the performance that made Madonna Queen. It’s not that simple.

    Let’s take her first two albums: “Madonna” and “Like a Prayer.” It is when people LOOKED BACK, again, LOOKED back and said, “okay, that’s what she was up to” that made those albums impactful.

    “Lucky Star,” “Borderline,” “Burning Up,” Holiday”, “Everybody,” “Material Girl,” Angel” (my favorite), “Like a Virgin,” and “Dress You Up” (CLASSIC live video) were adored when they came out but people had to LOOK back and say, “oh, THAT’s what the Queen was up to.”

    Her Legendary performance at the 1984 MTV performance was when people began really “seeing” or “understanding” Madonna.

    For me, when Madonna released the brilliant “Erotica,” an album that a lot of people DID NOT LIKE because she abandoned her easy “pop” sensibilities, I knew Madonna was a REAL force.

    Please do not attempt to narrow Legendary status down to one performance.

    If you like Gaga better than Madonna, cool. However, you are still attempting to make this pre-earned title stick. Sorry, it doesn’t and it won’t for a long time.

    Finally, Queens HAVE to have a CLASSIC album. Gaga does not have one yet.

    Madonna: Ray of Light.

  203. MusicFan July 1, 2011

    @BITCHICAN’TEVENSPELLWELFARE… I got that from an MTV article. It wasn’t I who narrowed it down. It was MTV. Receipt coming soon…

  204. Eric July 1, 2011

    MADONNA IS THE QUEEN OF POP! THIS IS VERY RUDE FROM ROLLING STONE!

    THEY CAN PRAISE GAGA ALL THEY WANT BECAUSE SHE DESERVES IT AND SHE’S ONE OF THE BEST FEMALE SINGERS+ARTIST+PERFORMERS EVER SEEN!

    GAGA SHOULD REALLY ISSUE AN STATEMENT SAYING SHE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS STUFF ROLLING STONE HAS COME UP WITH JUST TO CAUSE SOME BUZZ!

    THIS WILL BE VERY HURTFUL FOR HER CAREER IF THESE NEWS ARE GIVEN MORE EXPOSURE!

    THE TALENT RANKING YOU ASK FOR WAS ALSO INCLUDED: IN THE REVIEW RANKING!! PEOPLE DON’T GET GOOD REVIEWS IF THEY ARE NOT TALENTED!

    BUT IF SOME KNOW-IT-ALL FOKES WANTED TO GO DEEPER INTO TALENT THEN THEY SHOULD’VE USED FACTORS SUCH AS INSTRUMENTS, VOCAL RANGE, GENRES OF MUSIC SUCCESSFULLY EXPLORED, ECT. FACTORS THAT SHOWCASE THEIR ABILITIES.

    I AGREE THAT GAGA WOULD BE QUEEN OF POP IF MADONNA HAD NEVER EXISTED, BUT MADONNA IS QUEEN, SHE’S HITTING THE STUDIO THIS MONTH AND WILL SHUT IT DOWN WHEN SHE RELEASES MUSIC!

    ALSO HOW CAN THEY BASE THEMSELVES IN DATA SINCE 2009! THAT WOULD MAKE GAGA WIN IN EVERYTHING! BEST IN EVERYTHING SINCE 2009! HAS THE STATICS BEEN USED SINCE 2000 THE RESULTS WOULD BE A LOT DIFFERENT!

    HERE’S HOPING THESE DOESN’T HURT GAGA, SHE DESERVES BETTER THAN BEING NAMED QUEEN OF POP WHEN MADONNA IS THE REAL QUEEN! I MEAN, PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T LIKE GAGA WOULD HATE HER MORE NOW! ALSO IF MJ CAN KEEP HIS TITTLE OF KING OF POP EVEN DEAD, THEN HWY CAN’T MADONNA KEEP HERS ALIVE!?

    JEEEEZ! ROLLING STONE REALLY ROLLED TO THE DEEP THIS TIME!

    GOD BLESS EVERYBODY AND LET’S NOT HATE PLEASE, WE ALL KNOW THIS IS A HUGE MISUNDERSTANDING! PEACE! BORNTHISWAY!

  206. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare July 1, 2011

    I meant “Like A Virgin” as her second album–my bad.

  207. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare July 1, 2011

    @MUSICFAN, I don’t doubt you when you say that “MTV” said that. I’m sure they did. The performance, after all, happened on their channel. In the same way that they declared Britney the “New Queen of Pop” after she performed with Madonna at the 2003 MTV awards.

    What I’m saying, basically, is that MTV nor Rolling Stone can “crown” new Queen’s and King’s of Pop. Remember, Rolling Stone crowned Justin Timberlake (big joke) the new King of Pop in 2006. This is not the way it happens.

    You get this title after you have worked for it. Gaga is not there yet & that’s okay. She is THE BEST pop artist I’ve seen in years–she’ll get there.

  208. QW July 1, 2011

    JANET JACKSON is the Queen Of Pop and Michael Jackson is the King Of Pop. That is cemented in the Pop world and in the world of music in general and forever will be. You tell me one person who is on that list that has never imulated Janet or Michael & then we can talk. Madonna was Never Queen Of Pop, cause the last time I checked Janet had been crowned that and them some by every one form MTV on down. Janet was MTV’s first chosen ICON and was celebrated as that. Before that acknowledgement, Janet was already breaking records and setting new standards which changed the game completely in the world of music, Not Madonna. You can tell me one time Madonnas ever been celebrated for anything like that, big dogs in the industry always considered Madonna as a joke, just ask Elton John. At the tender age of 24 Janet Damita Joe Jackson had broken all type of records with her Rhthm Nation albumn and was the first and only musician on the planet to due so since Michael Jackson Thriller, read about it. See, I know alot of people try to play Janet like she dont even exist anymore, and alot of the youngins kinda got skipped when it comes to Janet because Janet got blacklisted after the SuperBowl wardrobe malfunction, but let tell you all she is the Queen and she most definetely does have the RECEIPTS to prove just that. Janet get played on every radia station, not Madonna. Janet has won ever award under the sun, not Madonna. Janet was crowned the Queen by the industry aloooooooong time ago, Not Madonna. Janet Jackson is the women whos style, videos and dance moves the newbees copy, and now that damn sure aint Madonna. Madonna gets acknowleded for doing her well no matter what anybody thought, be it slutish or whatev, that what Madonna know for as well as some bangers, cause dont get me wrong those she defenetely has with the reciepts to prove as well. But young Huns, Janet Jackson is that chick who came after Madonna was already in it and brought dance and true artistry to the game, while Madonna was rolling aroung on the ground in tutus. Madonna could never be and will never be what Janet Jackson is, the Queen Of Pop. And to think Janet and Michael came from the same womb, that blows my mind. God blessed their Mother and Father and in return Janet Michael the Jackson 5 and the whole Jackson Clan blessed us, we would never know how great music could be in our generation ( im a 80s baby ) if it were not for Janet & MJ and yall know it.They are a musical dynasty and the most talented musical family in the world and thats something Madonna will never have reciepts for aswell.

  210. Jasmine July 1, 2011

    “the publication only considered female singers active in the late 2000s”

    That means that the article is BS. That list should have been called “Hottest Females on the Pop Charts in the past 3 years.”

    Clearly, a “Queen” would have longevity. Aretha Frannklin is still the “Queen of Soul” and her career lasted over 5 decades. Madonna and Whitney used to be called the “Queen of Pop” and clearly Madonna’s career has been going since the 80s.

    Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry being on the list is stupid. All 3 are still relatively new artists.

  211. MusicFan July 1, 2011

    I agree with you BITCHICAN’TEVENSPELLWELFARE.

    I’m sure she’ll get there. In an interview she said: “People always like to bring me down presently, but I always say to myself; wait isn’t this how it’s supposed to be?, that’s right, they’ll admire me 20 years from now.” Not exact quote, but you get the picture. She herself acknowledges that she won’t be looked upon as an iconic person until she faces the test of time.

    Agreed completely, Gaga will get there. Same with Beyonce. Those two are the only ones that have the queen factor as of now in my opinion.

    @QW, beautiful post about the Legendary and Iconic Janet Jackson. She is my FAVORITE of all pop stars- period. She has 4 undeniable CLASSIC albums, “Control,” “Rhythm Nation 1814,” “Janet,” and “The Velvet Rope (MASTERPIECE). While these lessors are attempting to get ONE classic, Janet has four- AMAZING.

  214. ISTANN4GAGA July 1, 2011

    exactly @Bitchicantevenspellwelfare…

    tbqh gaga did say that she can’t tolerate it when people call her an Icon right now…

  215. QW July 1, 2011

    Thanks B-cantevenspellwelfare, its true though you know. And there are sooooooooo many other facts and acomplishments I could run down, but theres no need for it cause her talent and influence speaks for itself.You know, back in the 90’s my mother use to say to me all the time, ” There will never be another Michael Jackson”, and now I’m gonna say it about Janet, There will Never be another Janet Jackson, thats a fact. Time has changed and they just dont make them like that anymore, they really dont. I give props where props are due when dealing with the new divas, but time has already proven that no one is ever gonna top Janet Jackson or even come close to her. They just have to do them and do it their way , cause Janets and Michaels level of talent is definetely ONE OF A KIND, and as the saying goes, They are OFTEN IMITATED but NEVER and I mean NEVER DUPLICATED. God made that and he is the only one who has the ingriedients for that type of breed of performer or as some call it ” that Jackson DNA ” that only Mrs. Katherine Jackson & Joe Jackson can whip up, other than that it aint happnin captin!

  216. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare July 1, 2011

    @QW, you better say it!!!!! When I think about Janet’s under-appreciated work like this

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XY7Qc_VMKmk,

    sometimes I get upset b/c I know that Janet is head and shoulders ABOVE and BEYOND her contemporaries. I mean, they could NEVER match the artistic, intellectual, creative, and forward looking vision of Janet. Her “Rock With U” video slaughters anyone around her.

    Any artist, dancer, and choreographer would agree. & this is 2008 Janet. Like you said, Janet is ONE OF A KIND.

    Thank you again for such a great post.

    I said LATELY, that was 1994! did you expect me to believe that vocal was live? I know Britney loves Janet but i don’t.

  230. dang July 1, 2011

    QUEEEENN GGGGGGAAAAAAGGGGAAA!!!! You go girl!
    But why the hell are katy perry and miley even in the top 100? And Christina so low? she’s the only actual singer of all of them.. and did they completely forget Madonna?

  231. aisha aguilera keys July 1, 2011

    oh yea, forgot that this is a pop list. So yea, woulda been blasphemy too for A Keys to b here.

  232. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare July 1, 2011

    @SLUTPLZ, that vocal was LIVE. If you can’t take it, you can’t take it. Moving on…

    You were the one mentioning Britney, so I simply displayed what Britney could NEVER do–that.is.all.

    Lately? Janet is on an INTERNATIONAL tour…look.it.up.

    You don’t have to like Janet. She is already a certified Legend and Icon. I mean, really, how does your like or dislike figure??? Well, it doesn’t.

  240. Royalkev July 1, 2011

    @ Aisha – your arguments aren’t really making any sense to me. I’ve noticed that your often either giving Beyonce credit or your taking it away for the same things(sometimes inside the same post). It’s hard to tell where you stand sometimes concerning her, unless you think criticizing her and posing as someone who’s objective works for you. I don’t think it’s fair for Gaga to get this yet. That’s just my opinion. Beyonce wasn’t crowned Queen of pop so early in her career, neither was Britney or Christina. What’s wrong with thinking people have to earn it? I am not a Gaga hater, I just think she’s not a “real Queen” yet! This may be hard for some people to swallow that want to attach epic to her name for everything she does that’s average and subpar.

    @Royalkev

    I’m not going to lie- I like B’s songs, but I don’t care about the person. I have IASF and am about to go get 4, but I don’t care about her first two albums. I have respect for her, because she was able to have a career after DC, something not everyone can do, no matter how talented they are. So I come to this blog for the music. If u have a feeling that I give B credit but on the next post I don’t, I do this even to Alicia and Chrissy, so why not to B and everyone else, sorry if I don’t think artists including the ones I like are flawless. In what post did I contradict myself on B, because I can’t remember. I know that recently I didn’t like the alternate version of RTW so I’m not gonna lie, I thought it was bull and unworthy of her, but THAT’S ME. I don’t call her BLEACHYONCE because I don’t think that’s true, I don’t call her BEYAWNCE because I like her music for the most part, but u won’t catch me saying things like She’s the Queen or She’s so humble. I’m not a fan but I got nothing against her.

  242. bey’knight July 1, 2011

    wow so many comments i wish i could go thru them all. anyways i aint mad at all, i read the original article before tgj made this post. they were explicit about the time span they considered; 2009 – 2011. As a Beyonce fan, i can sympathise with the fact that everyone above beyonce released at least 1 album within that period while she released none.

    in all honesty, i cant fathom why taylor swift should be no2 or even in top 10 of a pop list. bieber is more influential than her. in an instance, lsat year, her magazine covers grossed poor sales compared to other celebs. she has numbers but to me queen of pop should be influential above anything which is why am cool with gaga being no1 (again considerin the timeframe) she has influenced a cultural movement, pioneered a crusade against “hate” all kinds of hate. there’s an unbreakable bond between herself and her fanbase, it’s almost unhealthy

    regardin madonna, i think her title is safe, today’s popstars will still always be seen as “new” queen of pop to material girl passes on the torch naturally

    all in all, this list should not have been compiled in the first place, if they werent ready to pull data from at least the last 10 years cus as far as i know, longevity should be on your resume, if you’re to be hailed queen of pop. RS are seriously spittin on their credibility in more ways than none lately and like someone pointed out, they’d referred more than half the women on that list as QOP in recent articles. i was even gushing when i read their review of RTW, they deemed beyonce queen of pop and even mentioned rihanna, gaga, britney etc as contenders

    another day, another bogus list…what else is new?

  243. aisha aguilera keys July 1, 2011

    @Royalkev

    I’m not trying to pose as an objective person, I’m just saying what I think. I like Riri’s music, but she’s a bad performer. Is this going to keep me from buying her next album? No, but I don’t want to see her live. At first I was angry about the hype around Lady Gaga too, yet I’ve always liked her music, but she worked so hard and accomplished so much in so little time, I just give her credit, and she stands out from the ordinary pop artist.

  244. Royalkev July 1, 2011

    @ Bey’Knight – That was a key factor, it’s only those 2 years that were factored in. I found that odd, who would be so specific to single out 2 years only? It just seems like a strategic way to help Gaga top the list. Anway, I don’t take this list seriously.

    @Aisha – That’s fine, you don’t have to like the entire “Beyonce package”, but I have noticed that your tume changes when your debating on her because I’ve seen you bashing her all throughout so many different post. I’m not reporting these things, so of course I’m not able to list each case. No worries though, if you feel that your just keeping it real – more power to you.
    I’m just speaking on what I’ve observed.

    Well Well Well

    Congrats To gaga she might not be everyones cup of tea but that b**** SLAYED the industry in the past 3 years and she works hard.

    RIHANNA is not a b**** to be messed with a questioned about her success she has also slayed and people need to start given her credit she is iconic and yall will all DEAL

    This is POP MUSIC we are talking about talent is not a big factor..

    Everyone KNows MADONNA is queen of POP and Janet is queen of RNB and it will remain that way until they die or somebody breaks all their records and out sales them

    The only people I think have what it takes to become legendary are

    Britney, Christina , Beyonce, Rihanna and now GAGA

    Britney spears is the Princess of POP And gaga will have to break and outsell BRITNEY b4 she can take Madonna’s crown Britney is POP Royalty people need to respect her legacy!

  246. Yellow Gorillah July 1, 2011

    Taylor is a NON FACTOR!

    1.GAGA.
    2.RIHANNA
    3.BRITNEY
    4.BEYONCE.

    @RoyalKev
    I’ve never bashed B, not that I remember. Except when I criticized her hair and 4 B stans came for me. When one of them called me ugly I said then B was a tranny, but that’s all. Honestly, I don’t recall bashing her, but whatever. If u can just give me one example.

  248. bey’knight July 1, 2011

    @Royalkev

    i agree, its seems very strategic, it begs the question, will there be another assessment in the next 2 years?

  249. Royalkev July 1, 2011

    @Bey ‘Knight … Exactly from 2011 – 2013 next. This Queen of pop thing might change quite often inside this decade.

    I will never understand some of gaga’s detractors…….

    Not everything gaga wins is due to her paying for anything,and not every list that Gaga makes has to destroy any magazine’s reputation.I know some of you don’t like gaga,her hype,or find her to be your cup of tea,but that doesn’t mean that everytime she wins an award,that the award show has to be “B*******” every time she even gets nominated.I can’t stand when people say Gaga pays for awards and stuff relatively similar to that.I’m not saying I’m opposed to you giving gaga a CRITIQUE(In Art,people critique things so it would only be natural.) but if giving gaga ANY type of credit is too much to ask then,in my opinion,your hate for her is to deep and you need to let some of it go…

    I’m basically saying that you don’t have to like my fave,but you should give her credit when it is due.(she is human just like the rest of us.)

  251. ISTANN4GAGA July 1, 2011

    btw,I am NOT condoning the magazines ASSKISSING my fave,so do not come up with the assumption that I would endorse things like nominating gaga against herself multiple times in one category at the vmas(even if I think she deserves them.)

  252. Slutplz July 1, 2011

    @ISTANN4GAGA

    I think you should apply that to yourself as well!!!

  257. bey’knight July 1, 2011

    @ISTANN4GAGA

    sont sweat it! they accuse beyonce of payin for her accolades, ask them for a single article that sheds the remotest hint of such feasibility, they all go numb. its just something haters have to say to help themselves sleep at night. i can imagine them justifying the state of their persona affairs with denials as well

    _____________________________________________________________________

    i see someone mentioned here that beyonce fans are upset. in the original article RS also mentioned at the end ; somn bou beyonce giving gaga a run upon release of her album. well it says alot if there’s alot of talk around beyonce’s place on the list and not anyone else’s. u wont see a rihanna fan make any complaint cus she barely deserves her spot but she did some damn hustlin within those years

    as for britney, NO she doesnt deserve to be named QOP over anyone, she tumbled downhill since 2004. reigning from 1998 – 2004 i.e 6 yrs is not what we mean by longevity. i know her personal life played a stumblin role but it was her price to pay. she already got a befittin title; pop princess -popular, celebrated but has no control whatsoever. if they factored the last decade in, she still wont deserve the spot. what stopped from being proclaimed BB artist of decade, she was an artiste thru out the noughties, 3 years over beyonce btw 2000 – 2002. BS fans need to be hit with truth serum

  258. WHITEJESUS July 1, 2011

    gaga is the queen of f*** and trannys not pop.

  259. ISTANN4GAGA July 1, 2011

  262. Lido July 1, 2011

    THIS IS A JOKE.
    REALY, KESHA IS GREAT BUT BIGGER THAN SHAKIRA ?
    AND BEYONCE SHOULD BE 1# OR 2#, BUT DEFIINTLY NOT AFTER RIHANNA &BRITNEY..
    THIS IS SO SH*T..
    JUST SAYIN..

  263. Diamond July 1, 2011

    Lol @ chloe. And yall should be glad rihanna is above beyonce. Just proves she will be more waterdowned and pop than beyonce ever was. And Britney is higher than her too. The more higher on the “pop” charts the more irrelevant is real music. The further down the listen to closer they are to good music. Beyonce is in the middle. My girl slays. She just knows how to market but keep a good amount of talent at the same time. Go bey. I would say gaga is on the top cuz she deserves and it more well known I don’t know bout the rest of those lesser talents tho.

  264. Diamond July 1, 2011

    @daddy GTFO. Justin is no where near that status. He is just a teen bubblegum fad. BYE.

  265. Diamond July 1, 2011

    @yellow gorillah janet is NOT queen of r&b. Her music is hardly r&b except on her albums. Her successful singles have always been pop just like rihanna. They know with their weak voices they can’t sell enough to the real r&b crowds even if they are classified as r&b sometimes. So the play on pop/dance/r&b gimmicks to have higher sales and recognition. Not calling janet a gimmick cuz she does have talent but queen of r&b is a no-no. She was princess of pop after madonna before britney took her spot. It is what it is.

  266. Diamond July 1, 2011

    @yellow gorilla. Janet is NOT queen of r&b. Her successful singles like Rihanna are pop even tho their album songs might consist of r&b but usually those end up not getting recognition because their voices are too weak to market to rhythm and blues crowds. So they use pop as a gimmick. But janet is talented tho.

  267. Diamond July 1, 2011

    This list is BOOBOO. Taylor should not be on the list. She is nobody’s queen. And country music sucks and is no where near touching the pop crowd. Taylor should be on the list of queen of pop country singers since no one listen to country crap in mainstream. Rihanna should be number two and britney number 3. BYE.

  268. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN July 1, 2011

    I agree with this list 100 percent.. apart from Lady gaga being above Taylor of course:P

  269. Kenny July 1, 2011

    Thats Hilarious, im glad we all found out what the truth is…. Beyonce is not the favorite as you all think… even Rihanan is higher (I just cant lol)

  270. Lash July 1, 2011

    Erm wata bout kylie? She’s still relevant right?

  271. kathybxoxo July 1, 2011

    THE QUEEN OF POP IS MODONNA, THE PRINCESS OF POP IS BRITNEY! WHO GAVE THEM THE POWER TO CHANGE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!???

    IT’S LIKE SAYING THAT MICHEAL JACKSON ISN’T THE KING OF POP ANYMORE AND JUSTIN BEIBER IS BECAUSE HE’S NOT THE HOTTEST THING OUT RIGHT NOW. PLEASE!

    ONCE THE HAVE BEEN KNIGHTED THE TITLE CANNOT BE TAKEN BACK! hmpph!!!

  272. The Man July 1, 2011

    This list is full of sh*t, Nicki is Hiphop. Some of these people only have one or two albums, this list is far to fraudulent. Who is running “Rollingstone Magazine” now, it’s like they are just trying to be trendy.

  273. TeamBreezy Bish July 1, 2011

    Seems RS was FAIR and UNBIASED ..unlike some of yall!

    Congrats to all the ladies!!!

  274. D H Town July 1, 2011

    for all these idiots pont blant gaga is the queen of pop shes came out strong n within them 2 albums she supassed the rest on the list stop hatin and beyonce queen of r&b no Mary j blige have that on lock still check ur numbers…………………………

  275. yall fuckers listen up! the one who knows the s*** is talking July 1, 2011

    first of all the real queen of pop LEGENDONNA who does it like about 30 years will be the queen of pop until she f***** collapse got it?? even that gaga sold her album in 0.99 f***** cents and got millions of it doesnt f***** means that she is a queen because she is in this s*** like about 3 f***** years!! maybe in the future but not now gaga sit down b****!
    so the list is so not relevant right now,maybe in 10 years or more pepole can anounce their next queen of pop which i consider is a pathetic thing to do i mean are we in london in the f***** bakhingham palace???
    also, taylor f***** swift is not even close to be the queen op pop she has all the f***** teenage country s*** all over her R U F***** KIDDING MEEEEEE????????
    if there will ever the next pop queen it will be gaga (which i dont really like but there is not any doubt that she is a big thing just like madonna was back in the days) also my girl RIHANNA is a f***** strong competitor who can leave dust to all the other b******, katy perry has also a chance and of course QUEEN B is a modafucka strong competitor. i would personally like rihanna to win the title i mean look how many numbers 1’s she has in about 6 years its a big deal…
    nicki minaj,my girl which i love has influences of pop but she is just not a pop singer like all of the rest.christina aguilera should be in the fucikn top 10 i mean get serious how can u put carrie underwood at n11 and xtina at n15???????? i just cant… when the real logical list of the queen of pop and the runners up will come then call my name.

  276. linker nippel July 1, 2011

    OMG so b*******

    Kelly Clarkson is the new queen of pop based on Esquire :)) Kelly was once pre ordained to be the new queen of pop back in 2004-2006 when she was dominating radio and basically everything else. I wish she could go back to that time before my december :((

  283. Andy MC July 2, 2011

    When Gaga is selling cds for 1$ and Bey’s cd leaked a month before it was released Bey did well to sell what she sold. How dare y’all compare Rhianna to Bey, that b**** can barely sell out a concert in the states canceling tours and s***, yall need to open y’all eyes and see Bey is the Queen.

    When one of those h*** Headline at the Glastonbury then get at me…until bow down to KING B!!! And shut the f*** up!!!

    Triple Platinum the first day, #1 in 23 countries with a leaked cd common, for goodness sakes she was invited to perform and headline at Glastonbury….f*** these basic b******!!

    BEYONCE RULES!!

  284. ADELE July 2, 2011

    Rihanna #3, please this b**** last tour FLOPPED, and her last album underperformed. Just because she was lucky to get on three huge rappers records does not make her any one’s queen, All she does is do and say stupid things just to stay in the media. Where is she right now.? Have you been hearing anything about her in the past two months? No one is even talking about her tour but her crazy stans. Her last two single flopped. Her album sales have slowed down. Beyonce first two singles she just released may not have done well so far but that was due to lack of promotion, but she sure is making history since she’s been back. New album sitting at the top of the US, UK, and World charts, and she is #1 in 14 countries, Giving killer performances that everyone is talking about. Making more money than Rihanna who Def Jam had working like a dog for over the past year but stll didn’t make more than Beyonce who was break for a whole year. Nobody talking about Rihanna ass. So trust nobody mad. Rihanna will never be on top, not with those type of performance that she been giving at award shows. Step your game up. Good night.

  287. Wisdom July 5, 2011

    If Justin Timberlake had dared to accept the crown as King of Pop while Michael Jackson was still alive he would have been mocked and criticized by fans and critics. Even to this day Jackson is still universally regarded as the King of Pop.

    How dare Rolling Stone declare Lady Gaga the Queen of Pop, and how dare Lady Gaga not turn down the honor. Like Michael Jackson Madonna has many personal failings, but she is universally acknowledged as the Queen of Pop.

    Madonna earned the title of Queen of Pop by releasing many chart-topping albums, her singles ruled the radio in the 80’s, 90`s and 00’s. Although Madonna may no longer top (for the moment) the singles charts, her tours always sell out. In the 80`s thousands of Madonna wannabes dressed like their idol. You don`t see any teen girls wearing meat dresses to school, nobody in her right mind wants to look like Lady Gaga.

    The title of Queen of Pop isn`t a title you bestow on an artist after only one or two hit albums, a pop singer must earn the title by producing superlative music over a long period of time.

    Lady Gaga intended her latest album “Born This Way” to be her magnum opus, she predicted it would be the album of the decade. It turns out Lady Gaga is a lousy artist and a lousy psychic. Considering how much Lady Gaga hyped “Born This Way”, it`s one of the biggest bombs in history. The album was lambasted by critics, and it`s quickly sinking in the charts.

    Lady Gaga the Queen of Pop? Yeah, right, and I`m the Queen of England.

    Madonna is the queen of pop, and always will be recognized that way. In case there’s another queen of pop, like this title is heritable, honestly it should be gaga. She’s done and achieved so much in so little time, that she deserves it, i think she filled an emptiness in musical world that nobady else can. To say that britney deserves that title is just act guided by fanatism, we all know britney can’t sing, compose or do major things by herself in her almost 13 years of career. And nowadays she’s just performed the worst in her life, honestly if she couldn’t sing before at her best times, now she doesn’t even try, she can not dance like she used to do, she lost her perfect body, she has changed her music style and seems not to find the perfect style that suits her, i think she just lost it. Very sad, she just let her personal life destroy her career, and now she’s not the same and it’s very unlikely she recovers her old image. So, to be honest and just, if there will be another queen of pop, that should be gaga by far margin, she’s began very well, and always keeps the hype and interest, and is the top social media celebrity, not to mention how talented she is, no matter many of us don’t like her style and her looks, she is just a freaking good singer and compositor.

  289. ismaeel July 14, 2011

    Well, i don’t believe in these rankings at all but the male lady doesn’t even deserve to be in this list. It is list of queens not drag queens.
