No there won't be....but sometime, some female artist is going to have to be the next No.1 female artist around. No-one is yet (I think) able to top Madonna, but one of these artists will be at the top soon, or say if Madonna retired today, and by leaving Warner's, in a way, she has.....

I'm just interested to see, imagining a world without Madge, who would you put your money on??????


(Here, I'm looking at more up and coming artists, (even though some are very well established now), which is why I've left out Mariah, Kylie, etc.)

Definitely Gwen, her sense of fashion is unparalleled and her sound is unique.
Shes not the greatest singer and has a weak voice, but she is the full package, like Madge. Shes gorgeous to boot.

Although she lacks the attitude and raw ambition, she somewhat makes up for it in her like-able personality and the maturity in her creative decision making process. She comes across as a sensible girl in control.

Gaga, doesn't pull her 'style' off. It comes off as desperate rather than inventive or creative. The attitude is in the infantile stages, she simply doesn't project maturity or assertiveness and that sense of self control. She tries to project it, but ti comes off as showmanship rather than ownership.

Britney is a product of the machine. Shes got the icon status and potential, but shes not in control and is helpless and vulnerable in the spotlight. Madge IS the machine, she drives it. She eats the spotlight up and spits it back at you. I see Brit as Madonna in reverse. I love her to death though.

Beyonce is just boring. Ass shaking, and her sound-alike songs bore me too. Shes a good girl living a good girl life. Nothing raw, sensuous or exciting about her. Shes like a playboy model, airbrushed, carefully positioned and posed. Shes not spontaneous or driving.

Pink- shes just a hellcat with a killer voice. Not that its a bad thing, I like her. Just dont think she is Madonna material. Shes the anti-Madonna, she doesn't want to be like Madonna. I respect that.

Lily Allen is a loud mouthed, obnoxious spoiled brat on the turps. Nuff said.

Rihanna is a featherweight contender who has been KO'd (no pun intended). She has no control or staying power. Shes out of the ring for good.

Kylie, while adorable, is a Madonna wannabe. The more she seems to appear like Madonna, the more it screams "wannabe". It just doesn't come off as genuine. She comes off as pathetic and forlorn, in the context of a baby bird who tries to fly, but falls to the ground. She has no fire. Shes a good girl, through and through, she tries to pretend shes not, but she is. Its like she would wear suspenders, stockings and brandish a whip and promise to spank you and give you a night of hot pleasure, but when you get her alone, all she really wants to do is cuddle and be held.

Mmm, yes, I think Gwen Stefani is a very studied pick, GaGa is very young though, and I think she has real potential - like Madonna, she seems good at provoking press coverage. Don't know about what you say about Rihanna though, how many hits has she had in the last year or so.....??? Seems like a dozen! Loved Unfaithfull, great , great song. I love Beyonce too...even bought her recent album when it came out...first of hers I'd bought. Kylie is more her own woman now, but yes, was always too much of a wannabe for my true respect....although I do like her. I don't see Pink as an anti-Madonna, I see alot of influences there - but she is unique in her own way - obviously a positive. There's room for everyone - these are the best of the best - but it is interesting seeing what we all think.......By the way, have picked Gin Wigmore because I think she's a kiwi with a huge potential to be a major international star. I saw her at a winery thing last Dec supporting Sheryl Crow and John Mellencamp. Playing on her album is The Cardinals - Ryan Adams' band, If you'd been to see Ryan Adams here the two times he's been in the last couple of years, you'd know what a great band they are - it's a real compliment to her to have them play on her record....

Wasn't BRITNEY going to be the next Madonna? And CHRISTINA? And JAY-LO too? Didn't RIANNA get tipped to be Madonna? And BEYONCE? How about last decade when the SPICE GIRLS were going to be bigger than Madonna? And SHANIAH TWAIN? CELINE DION? Remember when JEWL was to be the new Madonna? Or when MARIAH CAREY was now Madonna? Or JANET JACKSON was now Madonna? How about the 80's when MARTIKA was going to overtake Madonna? WHITNEY was too? How about COLETTE?
Anytime a female has some success, they are instantly compared to Madonna. WHY? Because Madonna is the bar. She is the level you need to achieve to be No.1
IMPORTANT NOTE : Madonna hasn't stopped. The bar has not yet been set. Madonna keeps raising it. Only when Madonna stops, and the level to achieve has been established can we begin to attempt to beat it.

FACT : Until Madonna stops it is impossible for someone become THE NEXT MADONNA.
WHY? - When compared, a copy will never look as good as an original. Madonna is the original.

Lady Gaga in the running to be the next Madonna
Reyhan Harmanci, Special to The Chronicle

Sunday, November 8, 2009

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pop quiz, pop culture fans. Whom does this best describe?

Bottle blonde. Platinum-selling album(s). Gay following. Ambiguous sexuality. Ubiquitous paparazzi target. Undeniable pop savvy. Appeared on "Saturday Night Live" in October to wrestle another famous musician.

And the fashion - dear Lord, the fashion. Not something you want to try at home or outside of home or ever, really.

Did you picture Madonna, or did another image surface, perhaps of another young woman who doesn't like to wear pants?

For decades now, the media have been on a quest to anoint "the next Madonna." A quick Google search unearths more than 79,000 hits for that phrase - everyone from Rosie Perez to Rihanna has been mentioned. Madonna herself has participated in the search from time to time, while still making albums, releasing videos, bedding young models, scaring the world with the tightest quads in the music business - in general, still being Madonna. Her staged kiss with Britney Spears at a 2003 music awards show certainly signaled a contender, although Britney, sadly, proved unfit for the title. (Who knew that mental stability was in the job description to replace Madonna?)

But Lady Gaga has come closer than any past wannabes. Gaga and Madonna have much in common: Young women with Italian roots, they both abandoned regular names - Madonna Louise Ciccone and Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, respectively - in favor of trademarked

monikers. They both eschew conventional looks in ambitious bids for global fame. And both have the pop music chops to make it work (check out Gaga on "Gossip Girl" Nov. 16).

Recently, it has seemed that Gaga could even out-Madonna Madonna. At the MTV Video Music Awards, Lady Gaga changed at least five times, every outfit more absurd than the last, while Madonna gave a speech in a demure black dress. Let's examine the evidence for Gaga's supposed ability to fill those Gaultier cone-shaped bras:

Humble roots. Early footage of Madge and Gaga tells a similar story: talented (but not virtuosic) singers with pop flair ditched their brown hair and former lives to begin the climb. Gaga, born in Yonkers, N.Y., didn't have quite so far to travel physically to join lower Manhattan's club scene, but as an early video of her performing at the NYU dive bar the Bitter End (and looking for all the world like Alanis Morissette) demonstrates, she has traveled light-years fashion-wise.

Professional training. One aspect of Gaga's history that is not Madonna-esque is her vocal training. Gaga was accepted at age 17 at the Tisch School of the Arts - one of just 20 in the Clive Davis music program. From there, she caught the ear of studio exec L.A. Reid. Madonna went a different route - showed up in New York with $35 in her pocket and a background in dance. But, to be fair to Gaga, she was dropped from her label and had to remake herself in lower Manhattan's burlesque scene before she actually got her music recorded. In both cases, Madonna and Gaga show ambition as their dominant trait.

Iconic style. Pretty young things trying to make pop songs are a dime a dozen. Gaga and Madonna (Gaga obviously having Madonna as a potential model) distinguish themselves through their use of avant-garde, weird, objectionable, ugly but undeniably individual fashion. In Madonna's case, it seems that her early looks came fairly naturally to her: The Material Girl was already rocking lace gloves, kicky boots and red lipstick in her daily life. Gaga's look isn't quite as organic; she formed a fashion group - Haus of Gaga - to mold her style. Whereas millions of girls could run to the store and cut the fingers off their gloves to be like the Material Girl, you (hopefully) won't see many tweens walking around the mall in a leotard, carrying a teacup (as Gaga did on her trip to England this year). In trying to subvert conventional notions of beauty, as she describes it, Gaga might be going too far on the costume tip to be on Madonna's level of media penetration. Madonna managed to be an aspirational dresser. It's hard to imagine anyone voluntarily putting on a lace face mask and hitting the town.

Staying power. This will be the real test. Madonna is known for reinvention, her ability to dictate and then ride trends, musical and otherwise. Madonna may have put out some mediocre to bad albums lately and overdone the cosmetic enhancements, but it's hard to ever count her out. As long as the original Madonna is still making headlines, there's a good chance that the "next Madonna" is the woman herself.
