    I never knew people considered Madonna a bad singer until I started using message boards and you hear these kind of complaints. I think unless you have a terrible singing voice, then a singer is only as good as the songs they're singing. Nobody complains that Paul McCartney isn't a technically gifted singer, so why do they bring it up with Madonna? Sexism?

    Possibly. So many artists I like aren't technically good at all but they've got a unique style. Heck, Dylan live fails to pronounce words! I like Madonna on her albums but live sometimes she slips into almost talking. That is why I rhetorically asked "The most talented?" In terms of technical ability no, but again, it's not about that, she hasn't proclaimed herself to be pavarotti and this is pop music.

    Actually I should have just stated that I like her without trying to over analyse something that wasn't asked.

    I don't know if it's sexism. I just think that with females everyone expects them to sound like Adele, or Celine Dion or Mariah Carey (when she ould still sing). But although there's a market for torch singers, with pop it's irrelevant to a degree.

    And anyway, since she trained for Evita, Madonna's live voice has been really strong. Yeah, she'll never be Aretha Franklin. But at least she should be given some Respect.

    You're welcome.

    Also, like with MJ, take away all the frills (the controversy, live shows, great videos, attitude etc) and just listen to the music and you have some of the best pop songs of all time.

    Like A Prayer
    Holiday
    Music
    Don't Tell Me
    Ray Of Light
    Papa Don't Preach
    Open Your Heart
    Into The Groove
    La Isla Bonita
    Express Yourself
    Vogue
    Justify My Love
    Take A Bow
    Live To Tell
    Hung Up
    Borderline
    Lucky Star
    Crazy For You


    and that's just a handful of singles...

    Thats exactly what she brings! Stellar pop classics! And by the way, I agree with what your saying and that was the point I was trying to make.
