The latest issue of Rolling Stone celebrates the 50th anniversary of rock with a list of the fifty greatest artists of all time. On that list Madonna comes in at #36 and the article written about her is courtesy of Britney Spears. Britney starts it off with, “I’m sorry, but I’d rather meet Madonna than the President of the United States.” She continues, “Madonna was the first female pop star to take control of every aspect of her career and to take responsibility for creating her image. Her music has become iconic: Songs like ‘Holiday’ or ‘Live To Tell’ are timeless.” Britney then tells about the first time she met Madonna, being really nervous and how she wanted so much to be like her as a child. Britney says, “I would definitely not be here, doing what I’m doing, if it wasn’t for Madonna. Madonna’s stage presence has inspired so many artist – you can see her influence in some of the younger generation like Kelly Clarkson and Shakira, who have picked up some of her moves.”
