Most Influential Music Artists of the Decade: Radiohead, Britney Spears, Nickelback
Which other pop stars, rappers and rock 'n' rollers made the list?
It's too soon to see if Lady GaGa will be the next Madonna, but few artists have shown the originality, focus and determination -- not to mention talent -- of Ms. Poker Face. She arrived fully formed as pop music's shiniest, innovative super nova. She's already spawning imitators. Do you really think we'd have Ke$ha's "Tic Tok" without Lady GaGa? The only question is: Can she continue to burn as brightly or will she burn out?
