Best Pop Stars Ever

The Top Ten

1 Michael Jackson Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under ...read 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

MICHAEL JACKSON THE BEST RAPPER EVER... BUT JUSTIN BIEBER IS IN THIS LIST! HE'S THE WORST POP SINGER EVER... MJ ROCKS!

He's obviously the best pop singer that has ever lived. He was the king of pop and forever will be. The work he made is just outstanding and is nothing compared to the other artworks. He showed people what music really is and changed the music industry and inspired many people at the same time. It's a shame that he died, but his legacy will forever live on.

2 Lady Gaga Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. ...read 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!

I agree with the top 2. The only person who could ever surpass Gaga is the king of pop Michael Jackson. She is ever so slightly below him. She has made her mark on this world. This year she has been in the spot light for a full decade. She will be here for a very long time if not forever. She is a Genius, a business woman, an influence, a icon, a beauty, an artist, a activist, an actress, a song writer, a singer/vocalist, and most of all a legend for all the years to come. Paws Up little monsters.

She is my favorite musical artist ever! She is so talented, and isn't afraid to be herself. You go, Mother Monster! Little Monsters, put your hands up, make them touch!

Iconic! One of the greatest minds of the 21st century

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 love her songs and I wish she was in the top ten at least... Katy perry is my favourite singer!

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING TAYLOR SWIFT!
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 is one of the biggest, most successful, most talented pop sensations of all time. She has broke her OWN record for her reputation tour. She sings like no other and she has been on the block for 11 years now and she knows what she's doing. Keep it up Taylor!

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

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! - iliescu

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 ...read 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.

She's the Queen. Doesn't get better than her ever.

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 ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning ...read 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!

She's trash - DaWyteNight

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

You are the best man

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

His songs are very good

9 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

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

My love for him and his music is unconditional

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 should be on top

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.

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 ...read 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

I've never witnessed any other pop singer have as much popularity and press when they were in the limelight. Britney was EVERYWHERE in her prime. Britney from 1998 to 2003/04 was untouchable. Never has anyone had this much hype since then. She was the 'it" girl.

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

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! ).

Lover her voice to death

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!

Prince is more musically talented than mj and yet he is only on 19th...

Should be right next to MJ. This list is flawed

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) Its a sad state of affairs that he is not even on this list. Without Prince, this list is meaningless!

It's a spit in the face that she isn't in the top 3. She inspired Mainly everybody on the list. Maybe after she dies this world will then realize that she had the greatest voice to ever grace this planet.

18 #1 hits (more than any other solo artist), Billboard Song of the Decade in the 90's and the 00's, the longest running #1 hit of all time (16 weeks for "One Sweet Day"), had a #1 hit every year of the 90's, has spent 69 weeks at #1, a five octave range (one of the highest voices in the world), has sold over 200 million albums, 2 albums diamond certified, has one of the best selling Christmas albums which includes "All I Want for Christmas is You" (one of the best selling singles of all time. ) Time Magazine declared her the greatest pop star of all time, so why is she not on the to of this list? Mariah is a living legend, untouchable, incomparable. According to Guiness Book of World Record, she's the "songbird supreme." I would only rank Madonna and Michael Jackson ahead of her. Other artists who are ranked higher than her on this list aren't even close to being in the same class as her. Vote for Mariah. If anybody deserved to be ranked higher, it's her.

You have got to be joking 77?
This is one of the most talented singers of all time. All of her tracks are very meaningful and people relate their lives and experiences to her music. OK maybe today she may not be able to reach the vocals she has hit in the past, but in my opinion there will be no-one like Mariah Carey she should be in the top 10. I can still listen to her songs all year round even the ones she brought out over 10 years ago... Butterfly has got to be one of the most touching albums around.

Why isn't she #1? Why is Victoria Justice more popular?! This is unacceptable in my opinion.

39 Janet Jackson Janet Jackson Janet Jackson is a singer and dancer who is well known for her sexually graphic records, iconic performances, and slightly weak voice. She is regarded as a sex symbol through her songs and videos.

Without a doubt, she is the queen of pop along with Madonna. Madonna may have had more hits and been more popular, but she strikes me as a greedy, cold, and repulsive persona, whereas Janet is the epitome of sexy, warm and attractive. "Nasty" is just an all-time classic, and her songs just make you start trembling and want to dance.

She is the person I've ever seen.R.I.P. Michael Jackson 1958-2009

She is so underrated! She is much better than that dying cat taylor swift. Janet jackson is truly a great singer and deserves to be on no.3!

Janet needs more fame why is she not the queen of pop they need to make that she is the sister of the king of pop

Ranked 59 really. He should be in top 5 all time. Who else had such an impact on social culture and reinvention as an artist. This ranking truly is wrong and speaks loudly about its legitimacy.

Reason why or civilisation is walking towards collapse! This Man should be in the top 3!

Bowie at 58!? How? Davis bodies is just as good as Michael Jackson, if not better. Get him to top ten.

Genuine genius doesn't occur often. This man has done it all.

She unlike a lot of other pop singers can sing and is an amazing vocolist. She was the youngest to ever be on the Rolling Stones Top 100 and was the first person EVER whose first 3 single were #1 on the chart. She also had more iconic songs that everyone knows then a lot of people on this list with songs like BEAUTIFUL, FIGHTER, GENIE IN A BOTTLE, WHAT A GIRL WANTS, COME ON OVER, ain't NO OTHER MAN. She also was an innovator and started thinking outside the box with both her music and look far before anyone else and has inspired singers like Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus.

One of the best Pop voices I've ever heard, it's strong, confident and sexy. Has a great look and never afraid to be individual.

She has a WICKED vocal range and sings her songs with a LOT of feeling! I love beautiful and fighter!

Seriously? Number 35!? Really? She should be at number 1 or at least in the top 5! She is one of the best voices in the music industry! She has the title of The Voice of the Generation!

He is way better than Justin Bieber and 80% of the people above him especially one direction and Justin Bieber I don't mind louis but seriously they all are sex appeal to the teens.

I adore Robbie's song candy.

Melanie Martinez is awesome. You should go and listen to some of her songs such as "Soap", "Dollhouse" and more. She has a unique style, and deserves to be more popular.

Oml I love your music! I really could care less about what people say to you! Your music is an inspiration to me I love your unique look and style you deserve to be #1 in my book! I really hope you keep making music! I love you! ❤️

Places places get your place, Mel-Bell at number #5. That's my rank. 106? B*t ch, please. Thts ridiculous

50 Kate Bush Kate Bush

So talented, and her career was given a boost by one of my favorite guitarists: David Gilmour. I fell in love listening to "Rocket's Tail" off of The Sensual World.

Cannot believe she's so low - probably cus she's not as well known in America/isn't your conventional pop star. Her songs border on classical, and she incorporates so many different genres. A true icon, and deserves to at least be in the top ten with her incredible vocal range and producing talents (unlike those that can't even sing live without autotune and are only famous for their goodlooks)
