Rihanna hasn't got any special talent. Well, her songs are really good and hits but she sings bad, she dances HORRIBLE.
But she is cool
The 1s are not really important. Cher, for example it has got only one MEGA hit "Believe" and a moderate-hit Strong Enough and she's a FKIN' LEGEND
And Bjork she hasn't got any 1 but she's the most talent person in this world
I feel like she is. She's left a mark in pop culture. From umbrella to her incident with Chris brown and the red hair! She might not be the biggest icon figure but she is working to build her status. She's a little legend.
this thread is lame. you can't say whether someone is iconic until years after their peak. you need hindsight to be able to see the impact of their presence in the music industry. we can say britney is iconic because she changed pop and basically made it what it is today. but i would say it's way too early to comment on the status of anyone who only had their debut within the last few years.
