VH1 Staff Discuss Which Pop Diva Is The Queen Of Shade, And S–t Got Real

While the votes continue to roll in, we’re closer to determining who is the ultimate Queen of Pop. And while Pop Stars are known to be shady as hell, you’d be surprised to know that not all of them are. Let us introduce to you a special breed: the Diva. Shade is the Pop Diva’s second language. It’s Beyoncé coughing. It’s Madonna taking a slow sip of tea. It’s Whitney and Mariah not giving a flying f–k. Bet you’ve never seen Britney throwing these verbal knives!

“Madonna” Talks Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake

By “Madonna”

You already know who it is…Madonna….MDNA…Queen….do we have to go over that again? I didn’t think so. Now that I’ve refreshed your neurons and awoken the spiders that you forgot to remove from your brain since Halloween, get into the groove for episode two of my show #MadonnaDearest. Bethenny, Elton John, Biebs, and Nick Jonas all conspired to entertain in different ways this past week. Subjects in my royal court? Not. I would get into it in writing, but then you wouldn’t watch my show and then we would have a problem. See what I mean? You scratch my back and I’ll let someone else scratch yours? Deal?

Remember, send me all your video questions via Instagram and YouTube with the hashtag #MadonnaDearest and I MAY respond to them…..Keyword: MAY. I’m late for my seaweed wrap. Madonna, OUT! 

Watch Madonna Dearest every Tuesday at 11 am.

Madonna’s Take On Taylor Swift, Beyonce + Other Pop Culture Happenings In This Parody

 

By “Madonna”

What’s up? It’s me, Madonna. The Ray of Light needed to heal the world….cause you know. The world needs it….or whatever. Anywho, Lola always asks me about things pertaining to reality T.V. and pop culture. I’m happy that she thinks Mommy is the cradle of all things known. So I decided to take a break from recording my new album, hire a filming crew, and answer a few questions about hot topics. I mean, I’m Madonna. I’m the undisputed Queen of Pop and Music, regardless of the outcome from your silly Pop Queen Faceoff poll. Of course you want to know my opinion of the court jesters who entertain me frequently.

Get into my new show, #MadonnaDearest….and if you have any questions for me, hashtag it Instagram. I’ll get to it….after I perfect my downward dog position!

Always Imitated, Never Duplicated: Everything In Pop Music That Janet Jackson Did First

janet-first-copy

We’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of the groundbreaking album Janet Jackon’s Rhythm Nation 1814 and bowing down before the pop goddess that is Janet Jackson. Almost from the start Janet was a trailblazer, fusing pop, R&B and hip-hop, raising the bar for music video choreography,  speaking out about social injustice and breaking racial and sexual taboos. The trends she started in fashion and music can still be seen in the work of today’s female stars, such as Ciara, Britney Spears and Beyonce among many others.
