VH1 100 Greatest Women In Music List

Melinda Tommy | February 14, 2012

Another day, another incomplete, incomprehensible VH1 list of top singers has surfaced.

This time around the music network has decided to compile the list of the 100 Greatest Women in Music.

As stated above the compilation is very flawed and has music lovers wondering who in the world came up with the ranking and why are so many important figures absent.

How can you have the names of the 100 Greatest Women in Music and not mention the legendary Diana Ross and the iconic Tina Turner ?

Why is Ke$ha on the list and not Patti Labelle or how about Chaka Khan, Diane Warren and Dolly Parton?

How on earth did Rihanna managed to land a better spot than Lauryn Hill or Sade.

And if the Barbadian singer managed to get in why leave Ciara out?

Yes Adele is very talented and Lady Gaga is a force in the industry but isn’t a bit fast to say they are more important to the music than Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson or the late Whitney Houston?

As for Madonna taking the number one spot – that is a very debatable matter.
