    Ok guys... not to go full on diva gay on this site, but I'm wondering...

    Who is your top diva from each generation?

    1) Bette, Barbra, Cher or Elton?
    2) Madonna, Mariah, Whitney, or George?
    3) Britney, Christina, Lady Gaga or Adam?

    Anyone I forgot?

    My picks: Bette, Madonna and Gaga

    Cher
    Madonna
    Britney

    That was actually difficult. I like Elton, and I love Gaga too. Madonna was easy.

    naivenewbie saidMADONNA. The queen diva of all divas
    this media-generated wanna-beeeez (and the current crop of lesser mtv hyped lip sinching pale imminations of the real thing) fade into the background in comparison to the real divas of the 1930's and '40's... ella fitzgerald, billie holiday, sarah vaughn, jo stafford, lena horn.... icon_exclaim.gif

    personal choice:

    1. Bette (Cher close second)
    2. Whitney
    3. Gaga

    reality:

    1. Barbra
    2. Madonna
    3.Brittney (Gaga will overtake her, but she hasn't been around long enough yet)

    I don't know anything about Barbara or Bette, so I'll have to say Cher even tho I'm not a fan. So,

    Cher
    Mariah
    Christina

    1) Cher
    2) Mariah
    3) Britney

    Actually - isn't it like

    Madonna = 80's
    Mariah = 90's
    Britney = 2000's?

    Nobody mentioned Celine.

    I would say:
    Barbara
    Madonna
    Lady GaGa (although it’s relatively early in the game to guess longevity.)

    Elton is in a class of his own. What a life he has led. I’m proud to have him on our team.

    Cher is an unstoppable force. Singer, TV actress/performer, award winning actress, exercise guru. That is a major diva!

    jprichva saidOne coiuld go back much farther than that:

    1. Judy Garland or Edith Piaf?

    even farther:

    2. Bette Davis or Joan Crawford?

    etc.
    agree. the point I was trying to make is: the current crop of overhpyed, studio augmented, lip synching "divas" cannot hold a candle to, and are poor imitations of, the real divas of the past.

    umm number 1 thing is.. you cannot have Adam OR GAGA in the mix.. Adam has 1 album.. Gaga has 2 albums.. Since when do you put people with 1 or 2 albums in the mix?? when your around 10+ years and still producing number 1 singles then you have the ability to call yourself something special!!!

    soo I'd say

    Cher

    Madonna

    Britney

    Gaga still has to prove herself as staying power.. one or two good years is great.. but like I said.. you need to still produce number 1 singles 10 years after you started!!

    If you want to compare more recent people then you can include Gaga.. but remember Britney has 10 years on Gaga.. soo I really can't stand how everyone in the Gay community is Goo goo gaga over Gaga.. she's good but u can't put her in the same relm as Britney!!
