It's actually Cyndi. Her album sold 16 million pure copies, 20+ million factoring in everything else.

Honestly Katy. Her peak was insane, especially her singles.

When it comes to sales it was Cyndi, followed by Paula, Christina and then Katy. 

 

The poll results just prove ATRLs lack of musical knowledge for anything before 2010 :deadbanana4:

I feel like despite being short, prolly the shortest, Cyndi's peak was insane.

FailSafe

Katy. But Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Time After Time are bigger than any pop girl's song, including Madonna.

Paula's peak was probably most similar to Katy's, and Katy was definitely a lot bigger than her on pretty much every metric. 

Cyndi's was too short with only a couple of hits to her name and no iconic album (despite the sales) 

Xtina had a longer career than all of them, but since we are talking about peaks, it's Katy.

Katy was a hit machine during her peak and left a very memorable body of work, both visually and sonically.

Great, but not one of the biggest anything. Certainly not a Teenage Dream

All of them are iconic, but I’m gonna say Xtina.

 

Following up her diamond certified(?) debut with Stripped? She punched.

Between Cindy or Katy but I think Katy takes the edge. 
 

Cindy had 1 iconic SMASHA era and 1 hit era. 
 

Katy has 2 big hit eras and 1 colossal SMASH era. 
 

Teenage Dream and it’s hits are ageing very well and some becoming classics already, much like She’s So Unusual

Probably Katy Perry

 

but Cindy Lauper must've been big, if I know her songs. I don't know any Paula Abdul songs

I would say Katy.

Cyndi was huge and was Madge's short time rival (before M exploded into the giant that she was)

But she didn't last long in comparison and she's overshadowed by her 80s peers, hence her iconicness is questionable (her hits are iconic tho)

Katy, for all her floppage, made her own mark in pop history. Not only through her chart records but her music as well. Her music (aka TD) perfectly captures the early 2010s optimism of candy coated dreams and sweet fantasies. She didn't get drowned out and she may retire now, but her plethora of hits + amazing persona in general makes her one of the iconic ladies of pop.
