So um, apparently Madonna called Whitney Houston and Sharon Stone mediocre in a letter.

I wonder what she means when she says that Whitney has the career she wishes she had. Isn't she one of the best selling female artists of all time?

Y'all would try to drag Madonna/say Whitney won when... Well, history says the opposite!

Yes, Madonna is the best selling female recording artist (And touring too, I think?). But Whitney was never lambasted for her work+received critical praise at the time. Madonna was the one always getting raked over the coals for breathing. This makes less sense now when several of Madonna's eras are considered turning points for all of pop music (Erotica, Ray of Light, Like a Prayer, etc.) while the majority of Whitney's music fell to the wayside+didn't have a huge impact on the presentation or sound of pop music today. But the short was that Whitney was a critical/media sweetheart while Madonna was the "bad girl" in an era where her artistry/vision/visuals were much more shocking. Though Madonna sold more than her she felt like her work and music wasn't viewed fairly, which is true as far as I'm concerned.

well obviously they aren't that obsessed about sales unlike their fans.  i think madonna value artistry rather than how many album she sold.  Whitney got respect from what she does because she is a singer singer but madonna felt that as she had to work 1000x harder than Whitney to get the same respect that Whitney received. madonna always feel as if whitney and mariah are/were always her biggest threats in the industry when they both first came out because in the 80s, what madonna was doing is hot but whitney came along and then mariah and both of the ladies can sang, and if you look at the billboard no 1 during late 80s and 90s, most of them were ballads.

i believe image wise (aside from the shade wars) Whitney is like media darling during her peak while Madonna was experimenting with various concepts and got lots of flaks

yes Whitney sang very well but performance wise Madonna triumphs her

This is exactly what I think. While I believe Madonna could have used different wording, I understand where she is coming from.
Madonna was constantly reinventing herself and, contrary to everyone's belief, had really freat albums. She took risks and tackled on new genres, which was a brave thing to do back then in the much more conservative 80s and 90s. As a matter of fact, she DID have critically well-reviewed albums. She might be a shitty singer, but we have enough of those today, too, and they are still famous (looking at you Taylor Swift).
Like many others in this generation, we forget how influential Madonna was. She 100% had a greater influence on today's pop industry than any other female artist.

Madonna is literally the most overrated singer of all time. No vocal talent or acting skills. Of course she's jealous.


Maybe now but chill if its overall, her peak music career was amazing. I agree that she maybe jealous or more so bitter.
