The one that took her stage name after Queen’s song “Radio Ga Ga”, is a queen in terms of originality. From her clothing style to the new taste she brought in the music industry, this singer never ceases to amaze us.
“When you make music or write or create, it’s really your job to have mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless sex with whatever idea it is you’re writing about at the time.”
“I am focused on the work. I am constantly creating. I am a busy girl. I live and breathe my work. I love what I do. I believe in the message. There’s no stopping. I didn’t create the fame, the fame created me.”
Named “one of the most controversial and successful female vocalists of the 21st century,” by the Rolling Stone magazine, Britney Spears strikes back and proves she‘s a diva with her new single “Hold It Against Me”.
“I want to be an artist that everyone can relate to, that’s young, happy and fun.”
“I don’t really have time to sit down and write. But when I think of a melody, I call up my answering machine and sing it, so I won’t forget it.”
She needs no introduction. Madonna a.k.a the “Material Girl” is a master of reinvention in terms of music and image even at the age of 52 and she’s recognized as an inspiration among numerous music artists.
“I want to be like Gandhi and Martin Luther King and John Lennon but i want to STAY ALIVE.”
“I’m tough, ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay.”
Often listed as the most successful female artist of the decade, this “Bootylicious” singer has tunes and dance moves that have marked the music industry. Even president Obama told Beyoncé he’d tried some of the moves from the “Single Ladies” video.
“I’m not interested in the moment. I’m interested in how this is going to sound in 30 years time.”
“When I hear a great new record, especially when it’s by someone that I respect and admire, then a part of me is like, “Why didn’t I think of that? Why didn’t I write that record?” It makes you sick, but in a way it can be a great thing. It makes you want to go back to the lab and start writing again. Maybe it will inspire you to try a little harder.”
“Hips Don’t Lie”, Shakira knows why and “Ojos asi” (Eyes like this) can’t look away from this music phenomenon, combining musical styles and the sexiest dance moves.
“My songs are the reflection of how I think and how I feel in that moment. But I’m conscious of the fact that artists have a responsibility before the masses and they have to take care with their words.”
“Writing songs has a therapeutic effect, and it either kills off love or wins the heart of the lover.”
The Only Girl (In The World) for many of her fans, Rihanna “broke” the music scene in 2005 with her debut album “Music of the Sun”. In 2007 this “Good Girl Gone Bad” when she decided to head a new direction and adopt a more rebellious image. Most recently, she was even deemed too raunchy for airplay in her new video for “S&M”.
“It is one thing to record an album but it’s a huge difference when people play it and listen to it and embrace it the way that I do. It has always been my dream to get my music out to the world and have people hear it.”
“I would sing in the mirror, holding a brush to my mouth like it was a microphone. The neighbors would always be complaining about how loud I was singing.”
“Everything is beautiful” about Kylie Minogue, especially one particular side of her body and more. It was definitely “Love At First Sight” for her fans. Her soft, melodic, unique voice has many of them argue that she’s unparalleled.
“You know, songs often have a very coloured past. They might have something about them but it still doesn’t work, so someone else adds a bit, and someone else adds a bit so perhaps one day I’ll know its full history.”
“I wrote lyrics that were intensely personal to me a few years ago. Maybe people know me better now.”
She had a “Vision of Love” and she succeeded. Mariah Carey has us addicted to songs like “Without You”, “Hero”, “Can’t Let Go”, “Emotions” and many others. Her vocal style and singing ability have greatly impacted contemporary music.
“One person could say Hero is a schmaltzy piece of garbage, but another person can write me a letter and say, `I`ve considered commiting suicide every day of my life for the last ten years until I heard that song and I realized after all I can be my own hero.`”
“A lot of people are singing about how screwed up the world is, and I don`t think that everybody wants to hear about that all the time.”
Tina is “Simply The Best”! With an exceptional voice, a career spanning more than 50 years and her kick-ass sexy legs, Tina is just breathtaking.
“The real power behind whatever success I have now was something I found within myself – something that`s in all of us, I think, a little piece of God just waiting to be discovered.”
“I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I`m not old yet!”
Celine says “L’amour existe encore” (Love still exists) and we believe her. Often praised for her technically skilled and powerful vocals, Dion’s music “Will Go On” for sure.
“As long as my fans enjoy my music and I’m happy in myself, my life and my music, that’s all the truly concerns me.”
“I will perform My Heart Will Go On for the rest of my life and it will always remain a very emotional experience for me.”
Pink’s “Just Like A Pill”, she keeps making you feel better. Billboard listed her as #1 Pop Song Artist of the Decade and we believe she’s an artist that will definitely be around for a long time now.
“My fans mean more to me than they will ever know. I call these people my friends and my confidence and if they are here to see me and they are here to support me, then that’s all I need in life.”
“I decided at 15 that I didn’t want to be one of those artists that gets up and sings love songs they don’t mean. I decided that I was going to be me to the fullest extent, that my songs were going to reflect relationships I’ve had, things I’ve been through.”
Christina Aguilera told us ‘You are beautiful no matter what they say’, and what can be more beautiful?! Since her debut, Christina has been compared to Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, and described by Celine Dion as “probably the best vocalist in the world.”
“Certain people want to see me solely as a pop act, but there are many different sides to Christina Aguilera besides the pop girl.”
“I want to be an all round entertainer, I want to act, make films, make albums, do whatever I can.”
