A new queen of pop has been crowned by Rolling Stone, according to Idolator.

Rolling Stone put 16 female pop stars head to head in the ultimate statistical showdown to see who would reign as queen. Competitors included Adele, Beyonce Knowles, Britney Spears, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Pink, Rihanna, Robyn, Shakira, and Taylor Swift.

The decision was made based on the winners of eight categories. Taylor Swift won in the most album sales and awards and had the best overall album reviews. Gaga had the most digital tracks and airplay, and she also topped the Billboard Hot 100 and was the leader in the social networking category. Rihanna won in YouTube hits. Pink dominated in touring revenue.

Not surprisingly, Lady Gaga came out on top in the end. It was a close call!

You wanna know what I think about this? I can't believe they are comparing teeny little screw ups to Madonna(keep in mind, I think Madonna isn't all that great and she can, I said can be a bitch) who has been in the buisness for how many years? Since the 80's? As I was saying, she is a legend in her own part, but these girls have only been in the buisness for just a few years. They aren't even as popular as the King and the Queen. Ok, Michael is world-wide. He's the greatest there has ever been. And nobody is replacing him. But they are saying Justin Bieber is some sort of prince now, wtf, my mother doesn't even know who he is. Anyways, you don't see people trying to replace Michael, so why should they replace Madonna? To me, the only one that comes close to Madonna's work is Cyndi Lauper. Not just her music matters for that crown, but she cares so much about womens rights and the world also. Plus she was in one of the greatest world anthems on the planet "We are the World"... She is so creative and original, she is my female idol... She deserves the crown. But Madonna has it, and I can't argue. She has good songs. But she has screwed up so bad, i don't know where to begin, from nudity, to lesbian kisses, to copying people, to whatever the hell she does. She is not in my book. But I think ether Cyndi or Beyonce... But i think Madonna has it all... Why crown a new bitch?

The one and only Queen of Pop is Madonna.All of those may be Pricesses but none gets closer to the Queen, and even Britney with 7 studio albuns out already is closer than Gaga that is only the fever of the moment with her second studio album out just now.

Madonna is the queen of pop period. To only use the past few years is silly but then again look at At the source Rolling Stone they are like mtv they are not that big of a deal anymore. If anyone was to be a new queen or princess of pop it would be Britney not some Madonna clone whole lacks any originality other than using a cheap ass wig to change her image wow lot of effort there. At least Madonna actually colored her real hair. Time will proove what a rip off and temporary hit wonder that Lady Gaga is. Her album is not the album of the deade she said and over exposUre is setting in.

Its so sad to see Lady GaGa take so low road by copying literally everything Madonna did. I LOVED LOVED Ga Ga during the fame, not sure why she feels she needs to take from other artists hard work. I dont like this new album all sounds the same. I did buy it hoping that the rest of her album would be great, but nope :( and imo your only as hot as your last album, i dont how many people try and say this album is the "greatest"..it's not. Lady GaGa please go back to fame monster and do us proud! :D

I agree 1000% lady gaga is no queen of pop, she barely has 3 years in the business. Britney=Madonna (lasting legacy), Lady Gaga =Cindy Lauper

I remember back in the day when they said Madonnas voice was like Minnie Mouses' filled with helium and that she was "disco dolly" or even a one-hit wonder. Times have definitly changed, Lady Xerox is a mimic of who Madonna is. She is by no mean a "Queen of Pop" if anyone entitled to the coveted name would be Britney Spears. What does it take to be a "Queen of Pop" longevity! Just ask Paula Abdul, Taylor Dayne, Cyndi Lauper, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson and over other 80s pop tart, about the importance of longevity. This Bizarro Madonna can only wish on her "lucky Star" she will ever be a queen.
