there is one problem with some people ******** on madonna! many people are just listening to the pop music of the last 5-6 years and let's be honest, that wasn't madonna's prime! but if you look all back over the last few decades you can see that she was not just on top, she was pushing everything forward. it's not about sales, about touring, it's about the impact you have on people and i have to agree with WFL: nobody can steal her crown. there are some artists and i'm not saying a name now, who are making music for a few years now. to call them seriously the queen of pop is just ridiculous! they could make music for 100 years and never reach the quality of pop music, madonna made! her discography ***** on lives!
