Madonna is an American singer-songwriter, actress, director, dancer, and entrepreneur. As a prominent figure within popular culture since her debut in 1983, Madonna's contribution to music, film, fashion and dance has influenced many other artists in the world.[3][4][5][6]

She is recognized as a cultural icon by Forbes and other publications,[7] as well a pop,[8][9][10] gay[11][12][13] and fashion icon.[14][15][16] Many authors have called Madonna the most successful, powerful, admired and/or influential female performer of all-time.[6][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29][30] In this way, Madonna has appeared as the first in several lists drawn up by media as VH1 (100 Greatest Women in Music) or the British tabloid The Sun ("The 50 female singers who will never be forgotten").[31][32][33]

Influence and commentary[edit]

"She is the most iconic and influential Female Recording Artists of all time!".

World Music Awards (How Madonna changed the World!).[17]

"With Madonna something happens that is unparalleled in the music and popular culture generally. She is her own current. Madonna ends inevitably present in the lives of almost all the singers in the world, either at the beginning or end of the race, She is the source of inspiration and goal to conquer".

—Juan Restrepo from Yahoo! about Madonna and her impact on music. According to his, "All roads lead to Madonna".[21]

Like any artist, Madonna has taken inspiration from some personalities ranging from Marilyn Monroe until Led Zeppelin, and several necessities as the Kabbalah;[34][35][36][37][38] as well on gender stereotypes, sexual cliches, corporate monoliths and religious ones.[39] Within this theme, Billboard editor M. Tye Comer stated: "Although Madonna had her influences, she created her own unmistakable style... She wrote her own ticket; she didn't have to follow anybody's formula. She declared who she was ... and took possession of her music".[40] Jocelyn Vena of MTV commented that "she's influenced others and, yes, even herself".[41] The authors of the book Encyclopedia of Women in Today's World noted that "Madonna's cultural influence has been profound and pervasive, as her multiple transformations and controversies have attracted the attention of numerous scholars working in a variety of fields, namely feminist and queer theory, cultural studies, film and media studies".[42] For its part, the British sociologist and media theorist, David Gauntlett ensures that "Madonna has clearly been a uniquely successful and enduring pop phenomenon; Madonna provides a whole world of ideas and experiences - in music, visual and expressions of cultural and sexual politics".[43] World Music Awards commented that How Madonna changed the World?: "She inspired every struggling young singer/actor/dancer with a dream..... She put Malawi on the map. Not many people talked about Malawi before Madonna's Raising Malawi Organisation and.... She popularised Argentinian politics. Before Madonna played Eva Perón, not many really knew much about Argentina's General Peron."[17]

According to the giant telecommunications company Telcel "since her appearance on the music scene in 1983, no artist has called more the attention that Madonna... has pushed the boundaries of the world of music, film and fashion."[6] In Madonna's Drowned Worlds, biographers Santiago Fouz-Hernández and Freya Jarman-Ivens noted that since the beginning of her career, Madonna has clearly inspired many female pop artists, including the Spice Girls, Britney Spears and Kelly Osbourne.[43] VH1 spokeswoman Sally Habbershaw said: "Madonna has truly reached iconic status and many of our viewers will know her entire career."[23]

"Her influence on pop music is undeniable and far reaching. New pop icons from Nelly Furtado and Shakira to Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera (not to mention Britney Spears) owe Madonna a debt of thanks for the template she forged, combining provocative sexiness and female power in her image, music, and lyrics."

—Mary Cross (Madonna: a biography) about the influence of Madonna.[44]

Tony Sclafani from MSNBC felt that "her influence on pop music has outshone that of the Beatles". Add that "quarter century after Madonna emerged, artists still use her ideas and seem modern and edgy doing so. Beyond the obvious Madonna wannabe 1980s singers, Madonna’s influence is felt in artists from Gwen Stefani to Britney Spears to boy bands, who found in the 1990s there was an audience beyond the old rock crowd." Furthermore, stated: "It’s worth noting that before Madonna, most music mega-stars were guy rockers; after her, almost all would be female singers" and that "the word “female” is significant in that assessment of Madonna because she presented herself in a fresh way for women artists".[45] The Time magazine, stated: "Every pop star of the last two to three decades has Madonna to thank in some part for his or her success".[46] Homa Khaleeli from The Guardian said that "no matter the decade or the fashion... Madonna is about power; despite nearly 30 years in a notoriously fickle business, and compared with her contemporaries – Michael Jackson and Prince – has remained in the spotlight largely on her own terms. Highlighted that "she inspires not because she gives other women a helping hand, but because she breaks the boundaries of what's considered acceptable for women",[47] while Carlos Otero from Divinity Channel wrote that "Madonna has secured for life the title of "Queen of Pop". He further asserted that "after 30 years of career would take another three decades to meet her influence and legacy".[48]

The author Ken Mcleod in his book We Are the Champions: The Politics of Sports and Popular Music, wrote that "Madonna has been one of the most influential female pop singers for the past three decades."[49] Similarly, the author Kimberly Potts said: "No other female pop star in history has had the musical, music video, concert tour, and fashion influence that Madonna has had, and continues to have, in the past three —continuining into a fourth— deacade".[19] Peter Robinson from The Guardian felt that "Madonna pretty much invented contemporary pop fame so there is a little bit of her in the DNA of every modern pop thing."[50] Rolling Stone said: "You can see her influence in the recent generations of artists who have picked up some of her moves and have been influenced by her style."[3] Tú Magazine from Editorial Televisa of Televisa, commented:

Madonna's influence on pop music stars is undeniable, from the music to the sets or outfits, all can see that the Queen of Pop has been the model for the current stars of world music firmament.[5]

"What female pop star hasn’t been influenced by the Material Girl?". She set the standard for what a solo female artist can be. Since she burst onto the music scene, there really had not been a female pop artist as big as Madonna, and I don’t think there has been since.

—Laura Rosenfeld from North by Northwestern.[51]

In this lines, Ian Youngs from BBC News say that "her influence on others has come as much from her image as her music, with her no-nonsense, boundary-pushing persona showing other artists what could be achieved".[18] And according to Fouz-Hernández, female pop performers such as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Kylie Minogue, Spice Girls, Destiny's Child, Jennifer Lopez and Pink were like "Madonna's daughters in the very direct sense that they grew up listening to and admiring Madonna, and decided they wanted to be like her."[52] Ottawa Sun editor Aedan Helmer commented: "It would be easy to quantify her influence by the generations of pop stars created and groomed in her self-made image — without Madonna, the Britneys and Katys of the world simply wouldn’t exist".[39] As Youngs and Helmer, Merely Me from Health Central wrote: "I feel that there would be no Britney Spears or Lady Gaga without Madonna. Her influence is seen in the fashion, style and songs of many of the female pop stars of today."[53] Rick Florino from Artist Direct commented:[54]

"You can't think of modern pop music without thinking about her. There would be no Britney, no Christina, no Pussycat Dolls and no Lady GaGa without her. From the second that she burst onto the scene in the early '80s, her presence has permeated almost every facet of pop. Her influence is everywhere, and she's not going anywhere either.

Howard Kramer, curatorial director of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, commented: "Today's more-flamboyant female pop stars enjoy the freedom to make music and perform the way they do, but they didn't create that freedom. Madonna did the moving and shaking when she burst onto the pop-music charts in the early '80s." He further asserted that "Madonna and the career she carved out for herself made possible virtually every other female pop singer to follow... She certainly raised the standards of all of them... She redefined what the parameters were for female performers."[40] He further asserted that "Madonna and the career she carved out for herself made possible virtually every other female pop singer to follow... She certainly raised the standards of all of them... She redefined what the parameters were for female performers."[40]

And she has succeeded – what I think Michael Jackson has failed to do – to still be relevant in the 2000s working with Mirwais and Stuart Price. I’m more a fan of those albums than the ones she released when she started. And THAT is impressive to me"
