Madonna. People love to love her and love to hate her. (I come down on the love part.)
As for the haters, screw 'em. To start with they hate her music, but they also hate a strong businesswoman who instinctively knows how to manipulate a moronic media to sell her fame and records.
Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and 120 million singles. In the U.S. alone she has produced 55 number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and Dance charts. In 2012, after 30 years singing, she charted three more number one singles.
Madonna is recognized as the world's top-selling female recording artist of all time. She is ranked by the RIAA as the best-selling female rock artist of the 20th century.
