Rolling Stone has anointed Lady Gaga this generation's queen of pop. Well, duh! Who else is bigger than Gaga? No to the one. Sure, she is surrounded by a ton of divas - Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Katy Perry- but none come close to stealing her thunder or her crown.
The Mother Monster was ranked at No.1 out of 16 female artists who released solo albums between 2009 and 2011. That was the criteria, so that's why someone like Gwen Stefani wasn't able to be crowned Queen.
The mag ranked the pop queens by things like digital song sales, Billboard Hot 100 rankings, radio airplay, views on YouTube, social media, revenue from live shows, award wins and reviews from critics.
Gaga scored 1,205 points in the overall Master Ranking, beating Taylor Swift, who placed second with 881 points. Rihanna came third with 833 points, while Britney Spears landed at fourth with 674 points. Beyoncé was fifth with 668 points.
In your opinion, is Lady Gaga the Queen of Pop? Or do you prefer RiRi or TayTay or BritBrit?
