The biggest pop star in the world is a relative term...it depends on who is the most successful at that current time. Some of you are too focused on legends and your own bias. The original poster didn't mention "of all time".

^ Exactly. Adele was definitely the biggest sensation of 2011 in worldwide sales and radio airplay. She's still selling the most albums in 2012 though most of the hype from "21" has died down.

Her newest single is doing well, but currently PSY, Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, P!nk and Rihanna are smashing globally - they own radio AND digital sales.

Madonna and Lady GaGa own touring right now, with each concert grossing millions.

I don't know. Beyonce is a one trick pony. All her stuff she does exactly the same way all the time.

Top Madonna? What did she do again?

Get the most people tuned in for a Superbowl?? Performance wise we know she'll slay. I want her to beat Madonnakhamuns viewership/ratings/people tuned in or whatever they're called.

and what does Madonna do again? "sing" with dancers behind her? run the stage clapping her hands, and having controversial stage presentations/gimmicks?

She's a cheerleader. Must you forget? She's 54 years old! OMG, she has that body and all those expensive visuals/props, and she can shake pom poms and do hand stands! :bored:

JANET JACKSON SUPERBOWL 2014!!!!!!! :yahoo: (10 years later)

Beyonce should bring out janet for a girl on girl tease...Then she would be barred from radio as well, and I won't have to hear "Dance For You" anymore. :umm:

Girl please..Beyonce ain't having no one upstage her. I expect to see JayZ..I hope not DC because it wouldn't feel right imo.

One thing for sure, she needs to bring it and think outside of that wind machine. :sigh:

I don't think Beyonce wants ANYONE stealing the spot light... so I hope she doesn't have Jay-Z... He doesn't need the exposure

I highly doubt the other two will be there... in the audience

Beyonce is going to have a tornado in that stadium :lmao:

I'd be shocked if Jay-Z does not show up. She knos people are expecting that song, and he's a key part of the song.

All of her D.C. songs have B as the lead, so if she sang a few lines, without the other girls, no one would know. Now if her dad was still her manager.....

No. I figured you'd at least say Rihanna but P!nk um no :umm:

I would say the biggest current act in pop is Rihanna too, Lady GaGa is proving to be a flash in the pan if she can't be consistent with great songs and albums this early in her career, her follow up album really did not do that well beyond the first single, its sad, it's like that first single and getting passed it to another hit is really the test as to whether the album is a hit.

That's cause Rihanna is. Alot of these people know it but don't wanna admit it :coffee:
