She was probably envious because Whitney could actually, you know, sing.

Beside this being untrue because Madonna has literally done nothing but exist since 2016, How is this relevant...to anything? 

Madonna's been mediocre since about 2009, so not it's not "untrue."

 

And it's very relevant to the topic. I thought you were dead.

the fact that the gays are calling Whitney's discography "mediocre" because her music ain't focused on sex and dark anthems or the gay stuff :dies:

 

like can we not?? Whitney's music is universally loved and more remembered, i'll leave you that

Madonna has more critically acclaimed albums. She just does. It's a fact. Check all music.com. I'll leave you at that.

Her lack of self awareness calling anyone mediocre :skull:

This :deadbanana2:

 

Whitney is a legend and a singer. Madonna is only a legend performer, and not a very good singer :ahh:

Another Madonna thread about the 90s.

 

Do you guys have anything better to do?

 

Getting a job?

 

A hobby?

 

A life basically?

 

Always the same ones perched in here.

 

Also, this letter was proven to be fake as well.

I really loved this letter. Not because of Madonna's words towards Whitey, but because of how insecure Madonna was trought the first half of the 90s decade.

 

That's why I think the best that could ever happened to her career is the failure of Erotica and her panned success.  It made her more humble and mature.

She was really upset that the public chose somebody with natural talent over a middle aged freak show.

Musically, the old hag sucks now. If we're talking about commercial success, Whitney would have hardly been mediocre in 1991.

If you decide to compare the same amount of studio albums released, Madonna outsold Whitney with a huge margin. Also including the soundtrack The Bodyguard for Withey, and The Immaculate Collection for Madonna, their respective best seller non studio album. 

 

1. Madonna (1983) = 9.625.000

2. Like a Virgin (1985) = 21.250.000

3. True Blue (1987) = 22.550.000

4. Like a Prayer (1989) = 14.275.000

5. Erotica (1992) = 6.825.000

6. Bedtime Stories (1994) = 7.500.000

7. Ray of Light (1998) = 16.000.000

(+) The Immaculate Collection (1990) 28.800.000

TOTAL = 126.825.000 albums sold in 15 years. 

 

1. Whitney Houston (1985) = 21.900.000

2. Whitney (1987) = 18.800.000

3. I'm Your Baby Tonight (1990) = 9.900.000

4. My Love is Your Love (1998) = 10.400.000

5.  Just Withey (2002) = 1.900.000

6. One Wish (2003) = 

7.  I Look To You (2009) = 2.400.000

(+) The Bodyguard (1992) = 41.100.000

 

TOTAL = 106.400.000 albums sold in 24 years. 

 

Madonna was clearly bigger than Whitney and I'm not even counting singles or tours.

She didn't lie :cm: 

 

I mean aside from a few classics here and there, Whitney's albums were nothing special. Aretha and Janet had better discographies.

Madonna's sales during the 00s also slayed Whitney's sales.

 

- Music = 10.700.000

- American Life = 3.375.000

- Confessions on a Dancer  Floor = 9.325.000

- Hard Candy = 3.650.000

 

TOTAL = 27.050.000 albums sold

 

- Just Withey (2002) = 1.900.000

- One Wish (2003) = 900.000

- I Look To You (2009) = 2.400.000

 

TOTAL = 5.200.000 albums sold

 

:rip:

 

Madonna is bigger than Whitney and that's all we need to know. Is not Madonna's fault that Whitney was an addicted. More to her tbh, so focused onher careeras a true artist.

yes, but Madonna had to work hard for that. Whitney released far less albums. FAR less compilations. FAR less live albums. 

 

Whitney holds the 4th best selling female compilation album of all times and the biggest selling overall release by a female.

Did you read above?

I made the comparison between Whitney's 7 studio albums + The Bodyguard and Madonna's first 7 studio albums + The Immaculate Collection and the difference ia is huge and I'm not even counting singles and videos and tours.

 

Was Madonna a hard working woman? Yes.

And that prove her point: she needed to work twice or more than Whitney just to have the success she had as thr queen of pop.

 

Meanwhile Whitney just had her voice and that's all. The minimum implications i her stuff. That's why Madonna lasted long too.
