Please do
Britney's Glory received 71/100 on metacritic , she's definately less respected than Celine Dion is. Metacritic doesn't reflect respect, it just reflects critical feedback for one specific album.
So what criteria do you use to determine Respect?

I think it depends because I feel like every musical genre has different meassures for respect, for example, if you want to gain respect in the hip hop community you gotta get street credibility, if you want respect in the Rock or Alternative world your talent is what matters ...... However in the Pop scene your reputation and longevity influence a lot in the amount of respect you may end receiving. Its not a coincidence that the divas that always get the most respect tend to have a perfect reputation in the way they've managed their careers (Beyonce, Celine, Adele, Madonna, etc). Longevity also seems to be a variant of respect in the pop world.

Celine builded her reputation all of these years, she was always professional, always slays on stage, her voice is still great, she doesn't have any scandal, she showed responsibility for her career and lasted long in the business, she can't go wrong and the music industry will always respect that, it doesn't matter what one critic review has to say, that respect just won't go away.

Madonna also builded a reputation as a powerful woman, she became an example of how to handle a career with extreme professionalism, creativity and high quality, she was controversial but was never involved in drugs or professional fiascos and in fact she represents responsibility, good handling and power, she always pulls amazing shows and tours and her skills took her to have one of the greatest longevities in the music business which brings her respect and reverence. People on internet may hate her but the music industry itself will always show respect to her no matter what.

At the end of the day, Mariah and Janet definitely deserve more respect than they are given. Don’t care about the other bitches.

One has always displayed incredible talent and reinvention skills and the others aren't Madonna.

Too bad she couldn't stay relevant like her brother :lol:

Madonna, on the other hand influenced many generations of female artists and she's the blueprint of a female pop artist. I think that's more than enough 8-)

Madonna: Queen of Pop, more hits than anyone can dream of.

Mariah Carey: Songbird Supreme, more records than anyone can dream of.

Celine Dion: Not even the Titanic could bring her down, instead it brought her an even more legendary status.

Whitney Houston: The Voice, I Will Always Love her.

Janet Jackson: The one who taught me how to dance. Still an inspiration to me on the dance floor.

I love them all so much and have nothing but respect for those incredible iconic ladies.
Back in the 80's/90's they saved my life.
Fast forward to 2017 and they are still among my most played artists of the last two years.
According to my.last.fm since August 2015:
1. Mariah Carey
2. Madonna
3. Celine Dion
8. Whitney Houston
9. Janet Jackson

As far as their discographies go, Whitney comes after Madonna for me. While not a fan of her albums, her singles are very strong. I like 3 albums from Mariah (Music Box, Daydream and Butterfly) and Janet (Janet, The Velvet Rope and All For You), 2 albums from Céline (FIY and LTAL). Tbh, i'm not familiar with early eras of Mariah, Janet and Céline.

Dear God not another stupid which diva is better discussion. They were all great, everyone of them had to offer something amazing and unique to them. None is better or worse than the other. They all sold millions of records and inspired whole bunch of other artists. You choose your diva according to your preferences and that's all there is to it. No need for a bitch fest every time.

Can't believe the same old discussion keeps cropping up here

However, I did laugh at Zoran's Celine/Leona comment :lol: :lol:

P.S. The Power of Bye is truly one of Maddy's greatest
