Who is the Queen of Pop? It’s the great debate of our time, or at least of last week after Lizzo summoned the ire of Madonna fans around the world when she bestowed the label on one Miss Janet Jackson. When I saw her tweet I didn’t gawk and maybe that’s because I have a higher level of respect for Ms. Jackson than most. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not shading Madonna but I think it’s fair to say that anti-Black racism at the time and specifically misogynoir not only in the music business but especially in the very white lane of pop music almost certainly held Janet Jackson’s career from reaching its full potential. And her career is already to most people the pinnacle of what popstars can achieve! Any Queen of Pop conversation is one Janet deserves to be part of.
