In the pop music world, you can’t help but notice that people refer to singers as the King/Queen/princess of pop….everybody has their own thoughts and opinions about who should be who, but I believe that only one person is entitled to be referred to as the King/Queen/Princess of pop but these are my choices:
King of Pop: Michael Jackson ( Thriller alone, proves he’s the ultimate king, but his other great albums and many achievements justify this as well) Many singers of today, like Eminem, Outkast, Britney, can’t help but copy MJ’s tradition of creating masterpiece video clips that are entertaining, funny, or that are serious and convey important messages to audiences. Many singers also have significant outfits and dance routines for particular songs.
Queen of Pop: Madonna (Hit after hit after hit…there is no stopping this singer! So what if she’s not a diva….she has questioned traditional morals and values, shocked audiences, and has reinvented herself…female singers of today can’t help but copy some of her fashion styles: Britney, Christina, Gwen Stefani)
Princess of Pop : Britney Spears (Despite the fact that she copies both Madge and MJ [ as they have been inspirations to her] she has STARTED, what has become the trend of being a very young female solo artist-after her incredible success others like Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, and Mandy Moore have come around. Thus, Britney has started a significant trend. And like Madonna, Britney is unstoppable, dishing out hit after hit after hit…proving to her rivals that she is the boss.
Prince: Justin Timberlake? (Who knows? there doesn’t seem to be anyone else more worthy of this title. Or is there? For now, I’m undecided)
Before I go, I want to add that Avril Lavigne is definitely the next Alanis Morissette. I mean, both talented artists hail from Canada, and like Alanis, Avril isn’t interested in flashing flesh. She writes her own songs that have a rock edge, and are filled with strong emotions.
Do people agree/disagree with me on this one? Do people have something/someone else that they want to add?
