You, the public, have spoken, and it’s our pleasure to announce that you’ve declared Lady Gaga to be the Greatest Woman In Pop Music. Last week we launched our 8 Greatest Women In Pop Video Bracket Countdown Extravaganza, pitting Lady Gaga against Madonna, Britney Spears against Rihanna, Katy Perry against Mariah Carey, and Jennifer Lopez against Beyoncé to kick the voting off, and now, thanks to your votes, Mother Monster has come out on top!
Closely beating Madonna in round one and Britney in round two, Lady Gaga made it all the way to the end, beating Mariah Carey 56% (with 39714 votes) to 44% (with 30578 votes) in the final round. In our 100 Greatest Women in Music series that aired on VH1 last week we chose Madonna as the top lady in pop, but it seems in the great debate of which daring lady rules, you guys prefer Gaga after all. So three cheers for Lady Gaga as we crown her the Greatest Woman In Pop, as voted by you! You can watch comedian Bex Schwartz’s cute acceptance speech below.

In our 100 Greatest Women in Music series that aired on VH1 last week, we declared Madonna as the greatest female artist of the last 20 years. Now we’ve decided to let the fans have their say — yep, it’s your turn to tell us who YOU think is the Greatest Woman In Pop. The first round sees Lady Gaga pitted against Madonna, Britney Spears vs. Rihanna, Katy Perry fighting Mariah Carey, and Jennifer Lopez weighing in against Beyoncé.
So far, Madonna is ahead of Gaga, 53% to 47%, but it’s a damn tight margin! We’re biting our nails to see if Mother Monster comes out on top of the Queen Of Pop. Also going head to head are Katy Perry and Mariah, with a mere 3% separating them and Katy ahead by just a pinch! On the other side of the scale, Britney is absolutely crushing Rihanna with 67% of votes to RiRi’s 33%. And in the battle between J-Lo and Beyoncé, Mamma Bey looks like she’s going to take out the round with a huge 68% of votes compared to Jenny’s 32%. If you’re not happy with the results so far don’t worry — it’s not over yet! You still have time to get your vote in for the first round, so be sure to click on your favorite pop lady before 11:59 p.m. EST tonight!
