    Madonna is credited as the Queen of Pop but Janet is definitely RIGHT behind her. She is just as much an influence on these pop stars today.

    Janet will always be better to me. She put out better songs(for my taste), was a better performer and has always been respectful. I liked Madonna at one point but she seems like a bitter c*nt and it's irritating. And that whole nipple thing last week REALLY disgusted me. Janet is a class act. Love her!!! She is FIERCEEEEE.

    Madonna is the Queen of pop DUH! Janet is okay, yet Madonna's bought greater archives and is a superb larger pop custom icon that Janet palms down. Can Janet fill a stadium everywhere contained in the international? Michael Jackson and Madonna are the two greatest lady and male pop stars of all time. If MJ is King, Madonna is the Queen.

    Janet has a much better voice and is a much better dancer, and in my opinion, is a much better person overall, too. But over the years, I think Madonna's had more influence in pop culture. I just hear more Madonna references than I do Janet Jackson references.

    It pains me to say this, because Janet's just overall so much better as a performer, but I think Madonna's the Queen of Pop. Madonna has just shaped pop culture too much to not be the queen.

    I think they're both overrated. Neither can sing very well. Janet had one interesting, innovative album, Rhythm Nation, that influenced dance strongly and let her step out of MJ's shadow a little. But since then she hasn't done too well.

    I've followed both their careers for a long time. For the most part, Janet was seen as MJ's little, less talented sister. Madonna had one interesting album, Ray of Light, where she seemed to be gaining maturity and growing up finally. For a decade or more, she read and anticipated the changes in pop culture very well. But since then she's gone backwards and could lose her place in music history because she's becoming a joke.

    Lady Gaga has been accused of stealing Madonna's stuff (Madonna stole nearly everything herself), but I think that basically, she has more talent than Madonna. She sings better, for the most part she can write a better song. ('Born This Way' wasn't one of her best moments.) She reminds me of some of the more old fashioned pop stars like Elton John/David Bowie. They were pop but they could sing, they could write and create their own music. I don't like or agree with everything Gaga does, but I'd like to see a return to artists like that.
