I'd say Madonna is.

monkeypuzzler 17-01-2013 18:46

From that list I'd say beyonce

Hobbes1966 17-01-2013 18:46

I'd say Madonna as she's been going the longest and I'm sure more people worldwide know of her.

Misty08 17-01-2013 18:50

Madonna. There will be very few people who haven`t heard of her. I would say there are quite alot of people who don`t know who Beyonce is.

potatolegs 17-01-2013 18:50

I would think Madonna too but if you ask someone under 16 who Madonna is - you'll be surprised how many people think Katy Perry is a bigger star as Madonna is no longer 'relevant'

tracystapes 17-01-2013 18:52

Lady Gaga or Madonna probably.

Moonbean 17-01-2013 19:00

Madonna, Mariah Carey or Beyonce. Even my mum's heard of those 3, so I reckon most other people have too!

kimindex 17-01-2013 19:01

Madonna.

IvanIV 17-01-2013 19:09

Madonna but Bouncey would like to think it is her

I am pleased to say I do not own a single recording by any of them

Rama-Posh_Drama 17-01-2013 19:45

I would say Madonna too!

potatolegs 17-01-2013 19:49

Looks like Madonna still is the biggest star to most.

GAWN29 17-01-2013 19:50

Rihanna- If it is column inches that count
Madonna- every generation knows her name but you wouldnt be as "starstruck" these days if you met her as you would if it was
Beyonce-nearly every generation knows her, talent wise she's great, she has the "superstar" image yet some talent to back it up

Madonna, Mariah Carey and Britney (Not sure whether to include Janet Jackson, Celine Dion and Shania as they haven't been in the public eye for years) are in a completely different level of fame compared to the rest of them. What has to be remembered is that these are women (with the exception of Britney) who have had careers which span multiple years, so of course they're more famous. The rest are very current artists who have had careers within the last 5 years, so we have no idea as to how long they will be around and if they will maintain their current levels of fame.

Out of those listed the answer has to be Madonna. She's a name which will be known among nearly ever generation and her recent concert and album (Which received absolutely no promotion and sold on name alone) show her fanbase is as dedicated as ever. Realistically I doubt that she will be successful in the charts over the next few years, although it depends completely on the quality of the music and whether it meets the demands of the listeners. It's really unpredictable, with the most recent example of this being the success of Adele which very few saw coming.

Magic Torch 17-01-2013 20:30

Madonna

Bandit1200S 17-01-2013 20:33

Dame Edna Everage

Jaymes 17-01-2013 20:48

Madonna
Mariah Carey
Britney Spears
Janet Jackson
Celine Dion
Beyonce
Shania Twain
Adele
Rihanna
Lady Gaga
Katy Perry
Taylor Swift
Nicki Minaj
Jessie J
Katie Price :o

I'd think that you're likely to get a different answer depending on the age of the person answering .

a friend of mine was once asked to teach guy ritchie chess. he had no idea who he was, and turned up at the house.

as he was teaching him, madonna came in the room pregnant! he knew who she was alright...

I'd go with Britney Spears. She is still massive even now. There's still photos of her at least once a day in some major newspaper.

Sadly most children/teenagers these days actually don't know who Madonna is, which is why my vote went to Britney. Even young children today know Britney to some extent. The screams when she performed with Rihanna at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards show that she is still very popular.

I don't know if she'll still be as popular in another ten years time, as Madonna was still pretty popular in the early 2000s, but at the moment she gets my vote as she is the only artist on that list who I feel has both career length and current popularity.
