Best Pop Stars Ever

The Top TenXW

1Michael JacksonMichael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. Michael Jackson was a singer, songwriter, producer, choreographer, entertainer and humanitarian. He donated (at least) a remarkable 300,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King more.

Michael Jackson is the best because he sings, dances, writes songs, composes and is a qualified actor. He also took all of the false rumors and ignored them (the rumors were he turned white on purpose, he hate children etc) also he can actually SING unlike the little twit below who doesn't deserve to be here, the only other artist that can make a song that's good to listen to and not just some guy wailing through the microphone is Justin timberlake.

I just love him rip mj you will live in our hearts he is so perfect he is full of every thing energy and just an amazing dancer and singer he is the king for ever love you mj


I mean, he's Michael Jackson.

she is wicked love her songs rock on katy perry

I CAN'T believe that katy perry is 22nd place! Katy is way better than everybody whos ahead of her! I mean like shes got a powerful and enchanting voice... She sings like an angel! I think fireworks is her best song, its so inspiratonal. I love wide awake too, the videos so cool. Come on she has a movie made on her... Katy should be in 1st place. I love her songs and I wish she was in the top ten at least... Katy perry is my favourite singer!

I think katyperry is one of the best singers in the world. I have all of her cd's. And that is a rilly a good chance for me to step up and vote for katy perry. I love you katyperry

3Taylor SwiftTaylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin more.

I can't believe that only 1% people in this world loves you!
Well my brother always angry me when I see your clip everyday because your so amazing

Taylor swift is the best, her real field is country music but she is still on 11th in pop chart she is just amazing, her voice is fabulous, her songs are so overflown with emotions that you can see a side of you in her every song. For me Taylor swift will be number 1. I don't give a damn about what say about her. She is awesome

Her music has helped me through almost every rough time in life. Taylor taught me to live my life fearlessly and that there's a time for silence and a time for waiting your turn, but if you know how you feel and so clearly know what you need to say, then you'll know it. I think that's why I love her so much: her music transcends far beyond just beats and lyrics; it has a real message to it

She is like awesome! I love her music

4Lady GagaStefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She released songs such as Bad Romance, Poker Face, Just Dance, Telephone, Born This Way, Paparazzi, and Applause. She also started acting during season 5 of American Horror Story. more.

Lady Gaga is by far the biggest pop icon of this century and has been releasing top class singles for over half a decade now. No other Artist has had such enormous success in a relatively short space of time with smash hits which will go down in history produced by her such as Just Dance, Poker Face, Paparazzi, Bad Romance, Telephone, Alejandro, Judas, Born This Way, Edge Of Glory and Applause.It is hard to believe how she could have produce such a large magnitude of great songs in such a small space of time. I don't think that there will be anyone as good as her in the future and there surely hasn't already been anyone as good as her in the past! How is she not number 1!

Britney and Madonna are legends no doubt bout that but lady gaga just has that added spark which makes her the biggest pop star ever made and she loves everybody no matter what :) and man can she sing! X

Lady gaga has got the most talent and more than any other pop star right now. People call a lot of singers the best because they have good lyrics, most of these singers don't even write there music and let's face your most of them are rubbish at singing where as lady gaga is not only a fashion icon but an truly amazing singer and songwriter, her dancing is amazing an everything she does in her career she puts 110% into it, lady gaga has the most amazing creativity and to a true artists eye her outfits are all works of art and a lot have been made and designed by her, lady gaga is the, a lady gaga show is one of the best shows next to "Honey B", LADY GAGA IS THE QUEEN OF POP!

Lady Gaga sucks

5Britney SpearsBritney Jean Spears is an American singer and actress. Born in McComb, Mississippi, and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana. She performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows like "The Mickey Mouse Club" as a child before signing with Jive Records in 1997 and going on to become a pop superstar more.

The best female Pop star ever, Britney Spears. Anything she releases is immediately number 1. She's sexy, talented and all round amazing. We've seen her ups and downs and she has managed to pull off the biggest comeback in music history.

She made original pop - her songs remind me of the 2000s - I really like them - althogh she made some mistakes in her life, her debut album is very very good. s

Britney Spears.. what can I say about her? Madonna may be the queen, I bet even she thinks Britney is the queen. In true honesty.. let's start with her performances.. she is an extraordinary dancer, she is so graceful and doesn't look like she is trying to remember the damn choreography, she is also looks like she is having fun on stage. She makes 100% original music, sure she has inspirations too, but she never rips someone off completely. People hate on her, just like MJ because they are extra ordinary.. they have sheer stage presence.. just watch the performance The Way You Make Me Feel.. Britney Spears is possible the only artist on earth who wasn't overshadowed by MJ. During her prime, she was fierce she was the real Sasha fierce without trying and without overdoing it. As for her singing.. she used to have a strong voice, but thanks to Jive Records they made her sound nasally. However, she sounds very unique. After her meltdown she is still going on over 15 years and still very ...more

Amazing singer and dancer! I love her so much

They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from more.

Beyonce is without a doubt one of the most talented women on Earth. She has a tremendously powerful voice, with a huge range. She is an excellent dancer and can really connect with an audience. She can put emotions into her voice and her songs that can bring you to tears. She is capable of writing and composing amazing music and for the most part, she does. She is also an excellent actress. Not to mention the fact that she is incredibly beautiful! Put all these qualities in one and you have an AMAZING performer. She has the best live performances of all and I love her with all my heart. GO BEYONCE!

beyonce is definitely the best pop star ever - I mean she was recently voted the best artist in the world in the uk. plus she is always improving as her I am sasha fierce album is her best yet and her vocal range is as good as ever.

Quickly turning into a legend and world wide icon, Beyonce' seems to have it all, the look, the talent and the personality. An amazing pop star.

Beyonce is without a doubt the best performer

7RihannaRobyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian pop singer . Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning more.

There is no doubt that Rihanna is on top. Why she is not Number 1 according to Social media or whatever makes no sense to me. Watch one interview, video, or concert clip and it is easy to see why she is so loved and Successful. I fell in love with her person and instantly seen her emotional intelligence in the Oprah special interview with Rihanna. In that short time, I got to know Robyn. She is real, honest, smart, and her work ethic and love for her fans is what has helped her break records. In addition to all of that, this chic has STyle! Taylor can talk about never going out of style and sing about it all day, but Rihanna walks the walk and walks it RIGHT. She is inspiring and I love how a lot of what she wears is drawn from inspiration she receives from whatever is around her in the moment and catches her eye. This girl is a super star. To call her smart was an understatement. She really is a very special individual. Music is what matters to her. Not titles. She is literally in ...more

Come on! 26th place?! She is great! We Found Love is a most beautiful pop song in the world! Only Girl and What's My Name are great too! Umbrella was her greatest song! She also got other party anthems like Disturbia, SOS, Don't Stop The Music, S&M, Man Down, Shut Up And Drive and Where Have You Been! And what about ballads like Unfaithful, Hate That I Love You and California King Bed! Don't forget about songs which weren't released as a singles! VOTE FOR RIHANNA! SHE DESERVES TO BE WITH GAGA, BRITNEY, Michael AND Madonna!

The only girl in the world deserves to be #1. Gosh I mean dis is someone who has broken records set by Madonna, mariah carey and the sweet whitney houston. She has 12 #1's making her the fastest solo artist to achieve that feat, billboard named her the number 1 pop artist of all time fending off her mates and even the legendary Madonna owing to her consistent place on the charts and having the records for the most #1's, most entries & most top 10's on the pop songs chart. Come on people, Rihanna has proven beyond reasonable doubt that she has come to #STAY, make good music and entertain.

She's the best I don't understand why those others are on top it should be her!

So overall a great artist I am beyond surprised how he is this low in the rankings..? if you look at his past year his net worth has increased about 80 million dollars by the end of 2016 so that's making 80 million dollars in one year half of the celebrities up here have nothing even close to his money potential talent and career he came up so quick so fast that took artist years and years and years to make it actually really make it... Justin Bieber is an amazing artist singer songwriter musician overall he is just great and I believe his ranking should be top 3. And with his age he still has a fabulous career in front of him... I only see positives no negatives I Believe by the end of his career he will be there either most famous pop star or second most famous

9MadonnaMadonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has more.

She was made to be famous.. She is a legend of POP she has been the most succesful woman with more than 300 millions copies.. She is the queen of reinvention SHE HAS CREATED all the other superstars who appeared after her.. Lady gaga is great because it's the logical and modern continuation of the madonna idea, it's obvious that lady gaga is the current queen of pop, why people try to deny it? She is really more succesful than madonna nowdays..
I don't know if the problem is the age of Madonna (which affects more than people think) or its latest reinvention.. She was the queen of pop.. Now people no longer sees her as the queen, and so she has ceased being it.. But she has been the queen for thirty years (until today) she began to build the road that she no longer walks... Only the following greatest artist may succeed her on the throne she created.. And yes, lady gaga is slowly taking it.

This list is preposterous. MJ's fine, but Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato? They're new, people, and untested. Whoever created this list sure is a teenage inexperienced, amateur listener. Madonna is LEGEND. She is incomparable, irreplaceable. Bieber, Gaga, Lovato, Beyonce, even Michael Jackson and Britney Spears are NOTHING compared to Madonna, pop's greatest artist.

Madonna is the Queen of pop and the best pop female artist ever, she can't be compared to those wannabees like katy perry, lady gaga, taylor swift, Britney etc... Madonna has proved to be a true artist by giving us great albums. This site is stupid to have Madonna in number 8, she should be second because the first place is Michael Jackson and even though he is number one, he has not accomplished what Madonna has. Because his last albums were not as successful as Madonna's. Againsm is real, The media trash Madonna's work just because now she is in her 50s and continue singing. Stop the hate, it is the only way to live with tolerance in this world, stop promoting hate to young people.

Queen of Pop people!

I am Selena Gomez's number 1 fan in the world! She is so amazing.

She's the baest singer ever and so cute.
She's a great actress too.
It's my dream to meet her.

Selena Gomez is a very good singer. It is because she is a natural singer by always being a good singer. She should be #1 on this list because she is good actress and a good singer that is my opinion!

11Bruno MarsPeter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer.

I love the beautiful melodies of all the songs you write and sing, especially "Never Close Our Eyes". I'm extremely grateful that you gave this beautiful song to the vocal god Adam Lambert, who can spice it up to make it a fabulous collab. You are the best songwriter and singer in the world of this generation of artists, along with Adam Lambert. I hate those people who keep saying that Justin Bieber is better than you. Bruno Mars and Adam Lambert forever!

He is one of the best in the business at this time. I am shocked to see him at 24. Man he should be in the top 10.

I love Michael Jackson a lot and when he died (sad fully) I thought that no more talent will ever corn into the world but then Bruno Mars came up and I was like... Now that's talent. By the way my fave is Uptown Funk

Coolest sound on earth

I love her songs like Give your heart a break, Made in the usa, Neon lights, Cool for the summer, Really don't care, Heart attack, and This is me. She should be the first in this list! She has an amazing voice and almost all her songs are Hollywood records. Love her so much!

NEEDS to be number 2 to Michael Jackson. He doesn't use autotune just like every other person in this list besides Michael Jackson.

One of the few Male Pop stars on the list. Has a very unique voice and a perfect Male pop star image, has had great success since Nsync.

Number two after MJ - no doubt!

Elvis then MJ then Justin Timberlake

Michael Jackson is the King of Pop - Justin Timberlake is the President of Pop!

I love his new song and him

20Avril Lavigne

Best singer ever! She's my idol, I would do anything to go and be able to meet her, it's totally worth it. If have every single one of her songs on my iPhone (that I can actually get on iTunes). She is beautiful, has a great personality, and she really knows how to rock! She was he most popular singer in the early 2000s along with Pink, Kelly Clarkson, and Katy Perry (who are my most favorite singers after Avril of course). She is one of the best punk/pop/rock singers in the world! She is so underrated now and deserves to get at least #3 if not #1. I'm surprised she's only #28 (Ha! That's her age! ).

Avril Lavigne gets my vote for sure. She tells you to be laid back and live your life to the fullest and don't waste your time being grouchy and miserable and to not worry about what other people think of you be
Cause you are YOU

She rooks and is so good at singing!

Shes so pretty
