Lady Gaga is one of the most famous women among teenage girls and gay men.

Most adults don't really know who Lady Gaga is.

Queen Elizabeth II is easily the most famous women in the world, Hillary Clinton would be in the top 10 too. Not Lady Gaga. Not even in the top 40.

"Oprah" is not famous in Asia either. She's a talk show host, if you can believe that. What's her big contribution?

She's not John Lennon or Germaine Greer.

If her show is broadcast at all, it's on the most obscure cable channel around 2 am, and in most countries it's not shown at all.

Her appeal is strictly limited to a 'white guilt' US audience.

I went to an impoverished little village in Tibet last year for humanitarian reasons. In one hut, in a village of no more than 10 people who had never heard of Lady Gaga or Queen Elizabeth, an old woman lay dying, cancer streaming from her eyes. I kneeled down benevolently to comfort her in her last moments, since I'm quite the humanitarian, and she coughed up some blood and gasped at me, "You didn't bring that cunt, Debra, did you?"

Why do older gays focus on Madonna so much? There are a lot of old British pop stars, but Madonna is the one who keeps getting brought up over and over.

Gay men always liked divas, Judy, Marilyn, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey, etc. We even gravitated to the strong girls on the soaps, Heather Locklear, Joan Collins, etc. whatever drew us to strong willed women put through diversity and coming out on top, Madonna is the pinnacle of that.

You DO realize you could actually be describing Madonna instead of Lady Gaga? Madonna has always been all about gimmicks, at least Gaga has a good voice and can play an instrument, I'm not even a fan, yet I can hear that!

What she needs to do now is make a movie, hopefully she can act, that would totally piss off Madonna, haaaaa!

Despite being dead 50 years, Marilyn Monroe is still pretty famous. Her image is instantly recognizable, and she has become Hollywood personified. Her candle is kept burning (so to speak) every couple of years with new books, movies, and documentaries. Just this past year, "My Week with Marilyn" and "Smash" continue to keep the Marilyn myth alive, and artists like Nicki Minaj introduce her to new fans. Also, her estate continues to make millions every year. Elvis Presley perhaps surpasses her in worldwide popularity, but for women Marilyn is still tops.

Do children still know Madonna? I need to ask my nephew... If they do, I think she beats Gaga. Everyone over 20 and alive knows her.

Americans need to accept that the rest of the world doesn't give a shit about Oprah. And Michelle Obama? Is this a black pride thing? The most famous men in the world are African-Americans (most famous man alive - Obama, most famous dead or alive - Michael Jackson, even if you're counting Jesus), but, I'm sorry, the world doesn't really give a fuck about O's wife, stylish outfits or not.

Hilary is very famous! More recognizable worldwide than Angela and definitely Michelle.

I'd say: Queen Madonna Angelina Gaga Hilary

Whether she is or isn't is unimportant. I can't stand most pop music or celebrity, but she's one of the few that has struck me as a genius in her field. Madonna did this for many years, but has become a pastiche of herself recently. Hopefully Gaga won't, but who knows. Just as Bowie, The Rolling Stones, and others became hackneyed and full of limp posturing, MDNA did the same. It will be somewhat interesting to see if Gaga does the same.

I spend a lot of time in Italy. In bars, supermarkets, stores it's very common to hear Madonna songs being played, from the whole range of her career. Lady Gaga, nothing.

In the past week or so, I heard Get into the Groove in a supermarket in Milan, Love Profusion in a cafe in Bologna and Girl Gone Wild in a clothes store in Florence.

I am starting to think that even she bought into her own hype. In 2008 she was a breath of fresh air, taking a NYC style "urban EDM" to the masses, but when she released "Born This Way", her issues based platform drove of a lot of casual fans. Supposedly, she has been working with Red One, Beyonce and Kendrick Lamarr in order to return to her fun roots. This album will be *crucial* to her longevity. Katy Perry, Rihanna, Ke$ha, Ariana Grande etc. should take note since the window of opportunity closes at the sped of thought nowadays.

R80, to say "Gaga wins" on that basis, you will actually have to see where Gaga is in the year 2040 when she's 54, how her career worked out over those years and whether anyone is still talking about her to the extent people talk about Madonna today.

But, sure, Madonna had to do things like go to New York from industrial Detroit, fend for herself and work on the scene for a bit so it took a bit longer, she didn't have a privileged New York background where her parents could send her to the poshest private schools and help her get into art school.

Madonna has been the world most famous woman in the world since 1985.Case closed !

Gaga's last album sold 1,5 millions only. She struggles to sell out 500 seats night clubs for her new tour. Few month ago She even posted a link allowing her fans to play for 6 hours in a row her song "applause "in a desperate attempt to reach N°1 at billboard before K.Perry lol ! She faked a hip injury to cancel The US leg of her flopped BTW tour because of poor tickets sales.She's currently trying to test every song form her last flopped album to look for a new "bad romance", she talks about compassion in a fur coat, she runs a youth foundation and sing with a child molestor. Her "lady gaga and the Muppet spectacular" TV stupid show had one of the worst rating ever and now she even has a video game named flappy gaganas (it means :floppy gaga)! Can anyone be more pathetic ? seriously such a fast decline is impressive. And she deserves it. bitch can't sing and can't even dance !
