Lizzo sparks debate on Twitter after calling Janet Jackson the ‘Queen of Pop’, not Madonna

Lizzo has sparked a debate on Twitter after she called Janet Jackson the “Queen of Pop” as opposed to perceived titleholder, Madonna

The ‘Truth Hurts’ singer shared her take on the greatest pop musicians of all time, posting a list of her choices on Twitter. 

“King of Pop- Michael Jackson. Queen of Pop- Janet Jackson. Prince of pop- Bieber. Princess of Pop- Britney Spears. The Pop princess- Rihanna. Queen of music- Beyonce,” Lizzo, 33, tweeted.

Lizzo, a three-time Grammy winner, shared her list on what would’ve been Michael Jackson’s 63rd birthday. And naming the late singer’s sister, Janet Jackson, as the Queen of Pop didn’t sit well with fans of Madonna, who has arguably held that title for many decades.

“[The] only Queen of pop Is Madonna, Not Janet Jackson,” one user wrote alongside a photo of the Material Girl.

Another Twitter user commented: “Madonna is the queen of pop. Janet is amazing and worthy of a prestigious title but Madonna is officially QoP and has been for many years.”

Here are some other reactions:

However, some fans came to Lizzo’s defence, endorsing her views on Janet Jackson. 

While one argued that perhaps Jackson should be called the “Empress of Pop”, another said Jackson rightfully deserved the Queen of Pop title.

“Madonna is not queen of pop to everyone (just to some institutions) Janet on the other hand is most influential and most copied blue print for the females, we all know deep down who the real queen of pop is #JanetJackson,” they wrote.
