Rolling Stone's readers voted Madonna as The Queen of Pop

Move over, little Monsters! Readers have spoken.

Madonna voted the all time Queen of Pop. Despite the magazine has named Gaga the queen of pop based on album and digital song sales, Hot 100 rankings, radio airplay, YouTube views, social media, concert grosses, industry awards and critics' ratings, majority of readers and music insiders do not buy that!



According to www.americanchronicle.com The title of Queen of Pop isn't a title you bestow on an artist after only 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. The title of Queen of Pop isn't a title you bestow on an artist after only two hit albums, a pop singer must earn the title by producing superlative music over a long period of time.

"Readers Poll: The Queen of PopWe crunched the numbers, but you chose your own winner

1. Madonna


To say that Madonna won this poll in a landslide would be like saying that she was a kind of popular pop singer in the 1980s. It wouldn't even begin to explain the scope of the situation. She received five times as many votes as Lady Gaga, who landed in second place by a very comfortable margin. The only persistent criticism that Gaga has dealt with in recent years is that she's too much like Madonna. It's a hard shadow to escape. Madonna is a musical icon without peer. Her run of hits over the past 30 years is simply astounding, and when she hits the road, tickets sell like it's a Led Zeppelin reunion tour. Sure, her last few albums didn't match up to the classics. Nobody cares. She's Madonna. Lady Gaga has accomplished more in recent years than any artist of her era, but she's still got a long climb until she reaches Madonna level. It's very likely that no other artist will ever reach it though. Her manager Guy Oseary recently tweeted that she's started recording her 12th studio album, so clearly she has no intention of slowing down anytime soon.
