Rolling Stone Names Lady GaGa This Generation's Queen Of Pop

| Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteBeyonceTaylor SwiftLady GaGa


She had some fierce competition, but the Mother Monster has been dubbed the reigning Queen Of Pop.

After careful scrutiny of the many facets that make up being an ultimate pop diva, Rolling Stone has announced that this generation's Queen of Pop is none other than Lady GaGa.

Yes, Beyonce might have more Grammys (6 to 4) and Taylor Swift might've sold more albums (9.8mil to 7.1) and Rihanna might have more YouTube hits (1,248,054,624! Damn!), but GaGaloo has them beat with not only holding a high rankings in each of those categories, but having the highest total airplay ranking of the last 3 years, the best performance on the Billboard Top 100, the highest grossing digital sales AND the most combined followers on Facebook and Twitter.

The facts don't lie. She's paid her dues. She's changed the world. All hail our QUEEN!!!

    FUNNY how PEZ never posted that FEMME FATALE just beat out GAG GAG as album of the year and favorite on MTV..he will never post that poll and result though. American's voiced their opinions honestly and FEMME FATALE beat out BTW..period…LIL MONSTERS had to go buy tons of albums at .99 to hope to get album to #1 unfairly, cheating, and fraud. Now the album has largest decline in history and flopping its way off the charts HAHAHHAHAHAHA

    Re: tellall – um no she is not lol..Britney sold 117 million albums world wide over 13 years, 9 albums and 6 #1 albums..moreso than any female artist in history…(compilations, greatest hits, and #1 singles)…GAG GAG is temporary fad who extorts, cheats, frauds, lies, imitates, and rips off anyone…pathetic tranny

    Re: madonna is shit – no it's not..it's 32..you just post shit…the only reason gag gag was in top was b/c she gave it away for .99 and you probably out 20 as well as the other lil deranged blindsided monsters…Britney's singles from Femme Fatale are ranked higher than GAG GAG's…and FYI..FEMME FATALE JUST BEAT OUT BTW ON MTV FAVORITE ALBUM AND ALBUM OF THE YEAR…Go read it..America knows..they dont rely on lil monsters to buy tons of albums for .99 to gain sales…

More that .99 for GAG GAG's floppy album …second guess…your STUPIDITY IS PRICELESS

    Re: cnavarro89 – You're not the only one, I've made two posts with a general comment on the topic, not a reply to anyone and nothing offensive, neither of which have appeared. I have no idea why :o (

    "as far as im concerned and most people on this site are concerned the UK is a non factor period when it comes to music sales"
    As far as YOU are concerned and the people and this site? Who the fuck are you supposed to be? Break out of your little gay, ethnocentric bubble! The world is a much bigger place than the 300 million people you're quoting. 300 million people aren't buying Britney's crap! Her sales compared to the entire population is a drop in the bucket. The UK is one of the top music markets in the world. Why do you think American artists promote themselves there? Why do you think the biggest acts in the world, past and present, come FROM the UK? Look at Madonna's, Mariah's, or even GaGa's sales. The majority of their sales come from OUTSIDE the US. Stop trying to do the smart thing. It doesn't work for you.

    Re: madonna_is_queen – The criterion RS has used to proclaim this is bogus and based on nebulous and subjective edicts. So is calling any artist 'Queen of' whatever genre. There's no solid criterion that this so called proclamation is based upon, no crowning, and no throne. (read how RS determined this, this time) It's like someone saying so and so is the queen of actresses. The position doesn't really exist. I just threw out one example, sales, but Guinness & RS use their decided criterion, and all are pissing contests with different random rules that stack the determination in favor of the one they've decided they're crowning this time.

    Re: madonna_is_queen – In world wide sales, the artist sales are listed as 'reputed.' Funny thing is the list of artists that claim to have sales over 250million world wide, and the list of females include Nana Mouskouri (300 million +) and Russian Alla Pugacheva. Good luck quantifying them all. I'd guess that many were even under reported for obvious reasons, and there weren't computers around for many of them, so black hole if you know what I mean. I don't doubt Madonna had huge sales worldwide, though, if that's your criteria for some kind of Queen crowning.

    "Mother Monster" is very appropriate. She looks like a monster. Ugliest bitch on the planet!

    Re: DarkAdaptedEye – I know boo the truth hurts!! Live with it honey!!

  18. 218

    Re: sk8terboy1983 – "@Perez, since when is a generation squeezed into only 3 years?"
    Dude relax. Perez didn't write the article, Rolling Stone did. Besides, all these titles, King/Queen/Princess, are meaningless anyway. Amazing how angry some people can get over something as minor as this haha!

    Re: SlaveMeh – DarkAdaptedEye is right on. My god, what a stupid remark that was.

  21. 221

    Re: DarkAdaptedEye – Well said, I couldn't be bothered to respond to that idiotic comment on my comment myself, I've decided to stop feeding the trolls on here. Some Americans (note I didn't say all) either can't or don't want to look outside their own insular backyard, America's music business is tiny compared to the world as a whole and many US acts come over here to Europe as they are not appreciated back home, Kings of Leon would be one example ;o)

    Honestly, I can't see this much as a complement when they put people like Snooki, Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Chris Rock and Sarah Michelle Gellar on their cover at different points in the past. I'd much rather have more Grammy's and albums sold then having the highest total airplay on the radio..because radio stations play the same "popular" songs.

    Re: SlaveMeh
    I already live with the truth, because unlike you, I can differentiate the truth from the "facts" you pull out your ass!

    Re: Saetana – It's probably a glitch guys. It's happened to me too.

    rollingstone RECENTLY named madonna queen of pop in a new article because of the huge amount of backlash they were recieving from their 'gaga current queen of pop' article.
