Top 10 Greatest Pop Stars of All Time
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.
He was the best because he was the complete package: he was not only a supernaturally talented singer and dancer who gave incredibly explosive and powerful on stage performances. He also had incredible charisma, style, and mystique. One also needs to include the fact that he was a devoted humanitarian who championed the plight of those so much less fortunate, and in fact gave tens of millions of his own money to charities. He was a gentle person who had a sensitive and fragile nature and was someone who the media made out to be a monster, and for that, the world should feel ashamed. Although we will always have his music, I will always miss his presence in the world.
Simply the best. Influenced ever pop star that came after him, even though none of them have been as original or as inventive as Michael has. Easily one of the best voices ever heard in the world, his range is incredible and can nail notes that no other singers can not even come close to. Incredible dancer that no one has still been able to emulate. His lyrics were precise as well. He was truly the total package in a world superstar. He spoke across race and class lines, and continues to be heard throughout the world even today. His music and legacy will never die, and his mark in music has been engraved forever.
Michael Jackson is the only person who brings the whole world with different races together untie as one. Its really sad that he was been innocently accused for 2 time child sexual abuse. Know Michael well before judging him. People are using him to make money. He died as if he is homeless. No one saw him cry. No one knew how he felt all the time. Is really sad that he died at the age of 50. But is a heart touching thing to find people all around the world pass on his legacy and name. Tributes from all around the world, had deeply touched my heart. Rest In Peace King Of Pop, Michael Jackson, no one will ever take over your place! King Of Pop lives on!
Whenever I think of her, a light shines in my heart. She's my biggest inspiration ever. You know, she had a rough childhood and she was banned from listening to pop music by her parents, but nothing could stop her from getting what she had always dreamt of. And now, when she's already the number 1 star in the world, she continues to inspire others, and also do a great job as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. I think she is one of the great women of all time.
Five number 1 hits from single album, three diamond singles certified by RIAA, need anything more? Put her on number 2 already cause we know Michael Jackson is the king so.
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, it's 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!
Katy should be #1, she is the goddess.. I love her personality.. She is very down to earth and has good sense of humor... Her songs are unique and very catchy.. She is one of the stars who has improved as the years roll by.. And she is the reigning pop queen,.. I adore her.. Prism gonna slay.. She is the best...
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!
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!
She hasn't only had hit after hit after hit within the past decade, but she creates all of her own music. She sings and performs all of her own music. She's classically trained, smart, and has some serious pipes. She has created this huge legacy for herself purely with hard work, passion, and dedication. She truly expresses herself through her music, her outfits, and her performances. Gaga is a true artist. She is also a huge influence especially to her younger fans. She promotes self-empowerment, confidence, and equal rights for all. Lady Gaga deserves to be at the top of this list with everything she has accomplished.
Who doesn't love Gaga? I mean she is strikingly gorgeous and beautiful in her own way, no matter what. Everybody loves her personality, her music, her crazy outfits, her performances. She's different and that's how she explains herself as an iconic pop star. Do not talk about sales or awards she has gained, but talk about talents and abilities. If you still say Gaga is not talented or stuf, you better put Gaga and other artists on one stage and let them do what they can do. Gaga's career has started since she was 18 and she has learned playing piano since she was 3 years old and began writing her own music in 11 years old. How could someone say she's not talented?
Better sound with Taylor Swift, even though Michael is a stage maniac. It is simply more of a Christmas kind of albums that one might get so would vote Swift on in first place. Skills can sometimes not be the feelings to admire, there is also authenticity and brand new present to find as the nicer deal. Hope to sway the agree with only Jackson to the feminine lead of Taylor Swift instead with that idol as the best this far in sound and musical talent perhaps taste more than snaps of character alone would give. Plus it is right for first to those understanding it most, and the rest have a high lead but at least not the first place of Taylor Swift. The music industry has never been more enlightening to fans and admirers alike thanks to the modern times breakthroughs with much care at that too that the new artists demonstrate. Good!
Taylor swift is a beautiful person in her songs she lets us feel her emotions and her feelings and that's a beautiful thing. She donates her money to hospitals and shelters and connects with her fans! All of her songs have a message that we can all relate to. She works very hard and it's not always easy at all! Taylor Allison swift is a great example for
young girls! Taylor Allison swift I love you so much and you are the reason why I don't let anyone tell me my dreams are to big someday when I'm successful and I've gotten where I want to go I know that I worked hard and that is the only thing that matters!
Not only does her music bring lyrics with such meaning but she pours her heart into her music. You can feel the emotion. That is very rare in artist nowadays. It's not just her music either, it's the way she invites fan to after-concert clubs. It's sending a fan thousands of dollars to kick cancers butt. It's visiting hospitals and sending her fans Christmas gifts. It's those kinds of things people will always remember about her. That's why she's a role model, legacy, and 'popstar'.
I'm middle class girl from India and yr voice is really pleasant. I wrote many songs when I was inspired by you and JB. For hours I practice your songs but that's all useless cause I never got chance to perform even in school. Never I performed English songs on any occasion because sometimes financial problem comes in between my path. Two albums I had written. I beg you to help me to compose that and to give me chance to become a singer like you. Thank you for inspiration,for giving me hope through yr songs.
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.
She is legend! Even if you're a hater just stop and think. She is the highest selling physical singles artist of the 2000s and she was announced as the highest ranking solo artist on the "Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists", a higher rank than Whitney, Mariah or even MJ, as well as having more number-one singles in the United Kingdom than any other female artist. She is the best on Billboard dance charts with 43 number one singles. Even MJ's highest single from his album which was released in 2001 peaked at number 10 in US. But in 2000 Madonna made the world come together with her single "Music" which peaked at #1 in many charts. She made whole the world "Vogue" and she is absolutely the most influential female pop artist ever!
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.
Madonna isn't just a pop star, she's an artist in the truest sense. She uses culture as a canvas and has given the world sounds and visions which will only really be appreciated when she's gone. Despite misogynistic criticism, she's one of the least artifical creators in all of pop; the very symbol of being yourself and the best you can be without pandering to sentimentality or peer pressure. Icon.
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
Justin Bieber is overall a great artist I am beyond surprised Hotwire 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 5. And with his age he still has a fabulous career in front of him... I only see positives and negatives I Believe by the end of his career he will be there either most famous pop star or second most famous
Justin Bieber is a great artist as well as a the strongest person I have ever seen beside so many hates he still manages to put effort into his songs and top them in the charts he is so talented like he could play a bunch of musical instruments has amazing vocals and dances good so no one can deny he is the biggest popstar in this world right now
He is very very cute and he just makes me believe and he inspires me I just love him I'm a belieber and he has the best music in the world I love you justin bieber! 1justin bieber follow me at @jespowel on twitter you make anything happen even when I cry you turn my cry into a laugh and you have the dance moves your pitch is also beautiful you always have kind words to say about other people you make my life complete you have the most best voice in the whole world you are my idol justin I want you to know I love you to death
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!
Hold it, hold it. What is Beyonce doing at number 8, 2 spots below Justin? Justin is what gives pop a bad representation. Beyonce is talented, buetafull, independent, inspiring, and Justin is a little girl. She writes her songs and doesn't use auto tune and anyone who doesn't like her must be crazy.
She is simply the best and she is an amazingly talented beautiful singer whom everyone loves and her music is nice to listen to and dance to she is just amazing love her voice and her great taste in fashion.
Shes awesome and she puts a lot of work to each song I like it. And she a good dancer have you seen the music video run the world. She does crazy moves while she is on it. She has these dangroues wolfs or dogs but j z he's awesome
An incredible pop phenom, she has broke countless records ( fastest selling female artist, only act to debut 4 albums with 500k in opening week, best selling teenager in the game ever, the 1st artist to have her debut single and album reach number 1 on the billboard, female artist with the most mtv ema awards... The list goes on), on stage she's a fearless diva but in person she's the most humble kindest soul. Through all her challenges she's faced she's still managed to come out on top. She's a true inspiration and force to be reckon with. Never underestimate the power of Britney effing Spears
I have done my research and here are just a few quick notes.
Britney has 2 Diamond albums. She has over 100 million Albums sold worldwide by 2010. Over 100 million videos Worldwide by 2012 or 2013 all RIAA certified, this is all in the midst of the download era.
Britney also holds 6 Guiness world Records.
1) Best-selling album by a teenage solo artist
2) Best-selling teenage artist of all time
3) Fastest most no. 1 in UK chart
4) 5th Best Selling Female Artist In Music History
5) Most Searched Person (2008)
6) Youngest Female Artist To Have Six Of Her Albums Reach #1 On The Music Charts (2011)
So if any other female music artist can make that claim, be my guest.
Also, some people want to make Britney the Queen of POP, however, it would be nice, I think Madonna, MJ, and Janet have had a great influence on Britney to make her who and what she is today. So Madonna will always be the undisputed Queen, (even Britney ...more
Hands down Britney should be at the top, along with MJ, Madonna, Janet, and Whitney. Britney, however, stands out among her peers and contemporaries. Currently she is more relevant than more veteran pop stars. She also is one of the only pop artists to have #1 hits over 3 decades (90s, 00s, 10s). Many records broken, and still relevant. So far she has proven she can adapt with the changing music industry and her style of music has changed. As a performer, she's beyond her contemporaries and arguably one of the best female performers of all time.
Up until now no one can perform as passionate as Britney Spears. She had a big big influence in music industry specially in POP. Its not just how she sung or how she dance, its how she perform that really matter to me..She bring the crowd every time she perform on stage. at her age now, she still perform the way she perform when she was little younger."BIGAY TODO", she gives everything to make her audience satisfied and go home with a smile after her show. That's why for me BRITNEY SPEARS is the BEST POP EVER
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.
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
She is amazing! She is iconic! Any song she makes turns into a hit! She has a amazing sense of fashion and her music is amazing and she is quite a versatile artist. She never forgot her Barbadian roots even after leaving to America. She as a person is very sweet kind savage and humble. She donates a lot of money to many charity works and did many great things. I love umbrella sos pin de replay etc. Such amazing songs! Love you riri #rihannanavyordie
She is the most influential artist out there... Everywhere you go or turn one of her hits are playing and not to mention her trend setting persona. She manages to get the girl from next door to other famous pop stars, to shave off half their head and not to mention her exotic videos. She embodies pop and deserves to take that number 2n spot!
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!
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
If there is a single guy who has talent after MJ, it is Bruno Mars he is a total package, songwriter, vocalist..Damn vocals man.., multi instrumentalist, performer and dancer. He is the best artist of 21st century.
Bruno is best... In my eyes he is the next MJ. I can see so many people who use auto tune up in this list. Bruno is a genuine man and his voice is genuine... I like to see him on top.
I love Gaga. I love Brit. But Michael should be one, Madonna two, and WHITNEY three. Gaga fourth. Sheesh. You young kids have no respect for history!
She range as pop diva in the 80
She has a beautiful voice!
Her music inspires me
Most underrated musician! She deserves so much more! She's a true artist from the way she takes the crowd away to the way she sings better than her recorded song! P! Nk will forever be my favorite artist!
Legend needs no description. She's smart, honest, and so deeply involved with the audience heart that she will live forever without any doubt.
To everyone: Try. Never give up. It's what I tell myself, and it's the reason I'm so confident. You're beautiful. Remember that.
One of the best live artists in the world. She's sexy, rebellious and boaderline rock star. Has a rough and sexy voice, always gauranteed to entertain.
I am the biggest fan of Selena Gomez, my biggest dream is just to see her but I wish I couls meet her. She is my biggest role model.Thank you selena gomez for britining my world. You inspired my life with the song who says. Everyone told me that you are never going to be an actress but because of the song I did not listen to them I only listened to me. So I just want to thank you. A lot of people don't like you but just listen to your self. Trust me that really works. Thank you selena gomez/I love you the most of all people.
Stop with the hate, this lady is more successful than a lot of people. Selena is a total queen, she takes on all this hate whilst struggling with lupus and yet, she battles on regardless. Her music is catchy and does well. She can definitely sing, maybe not as capable of higher notes such as Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato etc. I adore and look up to Selena. #Selenators
She used be very nice girl. I really liked her but now I really hate this skinny, ugly untalented girl. She get nude exactly like Miley. That was so trashy and gross. I also dislike Miley but I think Miley is way little better cause she don't even look so gross.
Selena I'm sorry you and Justin never get along and he's holding it against you but I think you are brave and smart enough to forget but here's my advice don't let him win and you might not no what ned means but take it from here. never give up, encourridge other, do your best!
I don't know why he, s at no.7... He, s the best pop singer... He's beater than any one on this list besides Michael Jackson... I mean seriously Bieber! Its not about money you make. Its about how good can you sing and Justin Bieber is nothing in front of him...
Hmm... Don't have any word to say. Ha... He is my role model... I think I have lisened each song of him for some lakh or crores of times... I am just crazy about his songs... Songs makes me to lead a peaceful time... To get immediate relaxation... And every thing...
Most underrated musician! He deserves so much more! His a true artist from the way she takes the crowd away to the way she sings better than her recorded song! Enrique forever be my favorite artist!
Enrique Iglesias - The word itself says that the person is awesome
He is a king of music, I love his every single song, even if its English or Spanish
I really don't have words to describe about him
He should be in at least top 5
Well of course, Alicia is just like Adele with the most powerful voice in history according to one of her best songs this girl is on fire!
Leesh, get out here on the stage 'fore I snatch the tax letter and coffee from your hand and put you out there! This Girl Is On Fire!
Alica keys has a very powerful voice she sings wonderful too I like the song this girl is on fire! But who dosn't. She is also very beuatiful I love you Alicia keys!
Alicia Keys is a wonderful singer and I just love all her songs!
I have already told that she must have been in 4th or 3rd place but you jerks don't understand. You are fake just put her up wait don't do I don't mind because in my opinion she is the best I don't care what you jerks say.
Adele your music is SO good and it is very interesting I like how it has a steady beat and it just somehow goes all together. Very Nice Adele
"Hello from the other side"
Unlike most of the singers in this list, Adele can sing many different genres of music and she's always so creative with her albums and her song choices.
Hello is amazing but it's played on the radio every 5 minutes
She is amazing, inspiring and makes her own songs! She is one of few artists that are generic an makes her own songs. I love her album, Warrior, it has Die Young, Crazy Kids, Supernatural and many great future hits! I also love her show Kesha: My Crazy Beautiful Life on MTV because she is not afraid to show her true self to people. I am her Number 1 fan!
Really inspiring amazing artist. (down to earth unlike some of the others even though her music is 100 times better) Such a nice person and one of my biggest idols, as she really doesn't give a sugar lump what other people think of her. We R Who We R, Your animals love you ke$ha and will always be there for you!
She is the best besides selena gomez she my favorite.!
Everything kesha does is pop which makes her awesome
First of all she is really good and I think she is nearly better than Michael Jackson she is really good at pop singer also she has enchanted singing voice that is full of power and range so I think she should be one of the top ten chart wow!
My gawd! Shakira, you have been on my phone Whenever, Wherever! Girl, keep climbing up the STOOPID social ladder and beat the others! Who on earth put Unjustified Bieber up there, because they need to get a doctor and a life!
Shakira is equal to the legend Michael Jackson. She has such soulful voice & her music spreads happiness. She is EPIC & perfect Queen of pop for Michael Jackson. Love you Shakira
She is very much talented and her voice is exceptional and too strong. she is worth being respected in the world of pop music and her dance moves are really awesome!
His live performances (From the 20/20 experience) are amazing. It's all live music and he has pretty much a full band playing. Amazing recorded AND live vocals. Many pop stars will just sing over recordings. Justin is a true musician.
NEEDS to be number 2 to Michael Jackson. He doesn't use autotune just like every other person in this list besides Michael Jackson.
He is one of the best male pop artist of all time. He is a triple threat and his iconic songs like SexyBack, Cry Me a River and Mirrors are unforgetable. Long live the legend.
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.
He's alright I mean the sobg u got it bad was pretty good
Got me like oh my gosh
My top three would be Prince, MJ and Elvis. Well ELvis and MJ are on the list, but only MJ got a deserved spot. WHere the hell is prince? He plays all the instruments, composes all the music, dances, choreographs, produces, etc.) He has been rocking massive crowds crowds since before most people on this list were born, and he's still going today) It's a sad state of affairs that he is not even on this list. Without Prince, this list is meaningless!
It is disturbing to see this legend on #98, below people like Pitbull and Zayn Malik.
The best brilliant talented no one can touch him.
Why are Kesha Justin bieber higher than prince?
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!
Demi lovato is so amazing and I like her songs when she was acting in camp rock also I like all of her songs she is really good at singing and acting finally I like her rock and pop songs so she should one of the the best singers wow!
I can not believe she is number 14 she should be number 2 at least. Her songs r the best and I think she looks better with long hair but she is who she is and she gets to make her own decisions!
Demi Lovato is not a person that makes dumb decisions. Have you ever seen her go butt-naked on stage like Miley Cyrus? Demi is a hard worker! Demi Lovato for President!
Miley she is the queen of music Disney pop legned nobody in Disney will never to her she sold so much I mean nobody will touch her in Disney she one of Disney icon and she in the Disney hall of fame Miley is a living legned love you Disney queen aka miley
I thought she looked better with brown hair. But I've excepted it. If that's who she wants to be, I'm not stooping her. She is who she is. Just like I am who I am.
Miley Cyrus is super good. We all know that her clothes suck but I love her songs. I really love Wreaking Ball, Party In The U.S.A, and tons more. Why is she 16th? She deserves at least 1 of the top 10s. But her clothes REALLY suck. So she deserves #10 at least. Like if u agree.
I love this singer she maid the all time favorite party in the use and she's a double pop star because she is also Hanna Montana ps so cool love her
Great singer and great actor on suite life of Zack and Cody.
My cousin got. Sharpeys under study in a play in high school musical
I love you you're the best ever woo!
I really like her
I'm not such a big fan of pop music, but I just love Katharine McPhee and the amazing job she has done in the music industry.
She's Beautiful and talented. She is one of those rare triple threat kind of people because she can do all 3 very well
Her name is Katherine like me
