All three of these pop girls arguably have the most stans on ATRL and while not necessarily peers (as all have debuted at different points in time) they have all been around for a significant amount of time and accomplished a multitude of feats

 

  • Taylor Swift 

Unparalleled commercial success, 2x AOTY winner, massive acclaim and respect as a songwriter and a bonafide country legend 

 

  • Lady Gaga

Massive initial musical success, Academy award winner, Best Actress nominee and a versatile entertainer with wins both in the musical and acting field 

 

  • Britney Spears

Massive commercial success, molded an entire generation of pop stars inspiring even the two mentioned above, constant pop culture reference and staple and one of the most recognizable figures of the 21st century 

 

Which one do you think is the biggest legend in the public eye (based on the criteria you find the most significant)?

Voted Taylor.

 

Britney isn't a legend and will never be a legend at this rate. NARAS and critics showcase that.

From this list, Britney as she has the most mass appeal. Taylor too but not every single community fux with her. Lady only has the Caucasian WeHo gays and the MAGA moms.

Taylor's career is on another level rn...

She has started going for industry heavyweights...and singlehandedly brought Apple and Spotify to their knees.

And her deal with Republic makes sure that her labelmates gets the millions they are usually left out of.

Only beyonce compares.

And for the other girls, one is selling watches and the other...well :monkey:

Britney for now

Taylor is becoming a legend as we speak

 

Gaga maybe if her acting career has longevity, in music she has been too inconsistent

If Taylor wins a third AOTY next month, she will be the biggest legend out of all her peers by a mile :sorry:

None of them is a legend yet, but Gaga has massive impact as well as classic songs and even a classic movie, so she's next.

U literally said it

Britney inspired the other 2 :dies:

both are big fans of her and one even called her a Legend :rip:

 

and again, she has her looks,songs,etc - constantly tributed and referenced :cm:

 

 

 

 

All of them have awards and sales (they are still 3 of the best selling female artists overall) but after that? :michael:

not surprised that ATRL still bases a Legend status mainly on success lol

I voted Britney by default as Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift are not considered legends in real life

I chose Britney since she's undeniably a legend. She achieved a lot during her prime days and is remembered and will be decades to come. I think Taylor could end up one too. Gaga is the furthest from being one. The fact that her career is super inconsistent doesn't help either.

probably the one that is breaking Beatles, Whitney and MJ records, might become the first 3x AOTY female winner and 5th overall, has amassed critical acclaim like no other MPG bar Beyonce, is considered the greatest songwriter of her generation, has arguably the most valuable discography of anybody alive, the same discography that includes a few legendary albums and on top of that is still very much commercially viable 15 years into her career.

Lady Gaga, reasons and why;

 

1) Longevity:

She is the biggest entertainer in the US 

Even if she hits her 70s or 80s she would still be able to play sold out shows in Vegas doing Jazz&Piano shows.


—————

 

2) Global: 

She is the most global pop star we ever witnessed since Madonna. Countless #1s and sales arund the world and still going strong since her debut. 

 

—————

 

3) Vers:

 

Only MPG who can do rock/pop/jazz/edm/musical and acclaimed live performances with legends such as Elton John, RS, U2 , Metallica ect ect.. 

 

—————

 

4) Movies & TV: 

 

Her leading actress debut on big screen was so massive with ASIB + Acclaimed role in TV series such as AHS 

Now she is Leading actress in RC movie. 

 

 

by far she is the MOST talented and BIGGEST American Entertainer we ever witnessed.

Taylor inspired all her imagery for 1989 videos on Britney Spears.

 

That's your answer.

Taylor is an accomplished songwriter, a 2X AOYT winner and has sustained success with multiple huge eras. Folklore released more than a decade after her debut is celebrated and she rebranded herself as a skilled mature storyteller.

 

Gaga comes second. Talented singer, good writer and extremely influencal. Her singing and acting are both praised. Her Oscar and grammys are testament to that. 

 

 

Both can pick up a mic and either blow u away with their vocals or move u with a beautiful self penned story. 

 

Being a legend implies that u have talent. Those two fit the bill.

What in God's name does Britney Spears have to do with Shake It Off, Blank Space, Style, Wildest Dreams or Out of the Woods' imagery? :deadbanana:

Probably Britney for now but I’m starting to think she’s becoming more Infamous.. or is more infamous at this point.

 

 

Taylor blows them both out of the water

Britney ‘cause the other two aren’t legends yet. They’re on their way though. Especially Taylor.
