Agree with Dan... to an extent.

Love Katy Perry or hate her (I'm in the second category!), she set the record for the most US #1 singles from an album by a woman with her 'Teenage Dream' album, with five #1 singles.

Even though I don't like the woman or her music, that IS an achievement and, imho, gives her more right to be in this list than, say, Alicia Keys.


Polls are pointless.

Where's Cher Lloyd? ;-)


Glad for Madonna, but I agree with the others, some of these people are way too new. And any list that gives Katy Perry ANY recognition is suspect.


Mariah #2? Seriosuly?


Christina Aguilera ranks higher than Britney? Arguments about artisitic merits aside, there's no way Christina has had a greater cultural impact.


Absolutely agree with the above comments. Madonna definitely deserves the #1 position, but Adele? She is also AMAZING, but where in the top 20 is Tina, Pat Benatar, Cher, Aretha, and Janis.

Glad to see Madonna top yet another chart, but this is a pretty lame chart I have to say, even by pop standards alone. I mean, Pink, Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez, but no Kylie Minogue in the top 20?!?


YES! Madonna is the best! I couldn't imagine anyone else being no. 1


Congrats to Madonna..... But Lady Gaga, Adele, Rihanna, Katty Perry don't belong in the top 20.... they haven't paid there dues.
