madonna, hands down. she's an actual artist. she creates themes and worlds. she reinvents herself. her stage productions are theatrical.
mariah, who doesn't even sing by her own standards anymore, is a voice that stands behind a microphone on stage. there's nothing particularly artistic behind all the technique, and outside the united states she's next to no one. she's had 18 #1's here, but none in most other countries.
oh, and by the way, i prefer janet to all of them.
Madonna doesn't write or produce her own music, whereas Mariah does. I definitely like both though to be honest. Madonna does release a lot of crap though[/quote]
Check again. Madonna has a hand in writting and producing almost everything she has sung since her Madonna album.
And though Moo-Riah is a Cow (and i agree with Madonna that her popularity is another symbol of the dumbing down of American society... and i feel Payola), i will give her credit that when she danes to actually SING, she is the stronger vocalist.
HOWEVER Madonna is an artist. Her work evokes emotion, causes dialog, makes people think. Moo-riah... she kinda only shrieks like a banshee and goes crazy. Madonna gives you an entire package with her work... music, visual, and performance.
What's more, and recently Moo-riah has even given Madonna credit for this, had it not been for Madonna (and to an extent Cher and Tina Turner before her) Moo-riah, Janet, Britney, and even Kylie (who has ALWAYS given props, love and respect to Madonna, and indeed recieved it from her back) wouldn't be able to be the little sex pots they are today.
FURTHERMORE BOTH Janet and Moo-riah, who have stated scathing things about The Goddess Madonna in the past, have BOTH recently come out and stated that Madonna is indeed a true artist, and that she does amazing and wonderful things allowing them to further do... whatever it is that they... try to do.
Moo-riah can be duplicated. her songs are, okay at best. Up and coming individuals like Leona Lewis have far more personality and have just as strong a voice as Moo-riah. HOWEVER, there has YET to be anyone who has been able to duplicate the artistry, power, and talent in fields such as business and finance that Madonna is clearly the master of... including male counterparts like Prince and MJ.[/quote]
Janet puts madonna's artistry to shame...and she is hot too!
