    Nah, Lady Gaga has been more iconic in 2009-2010 than Rihanna in her entire career, she is very succesful but for her songs, not her albums. I don’t know why I feel that her songs are more popular than her, there is something missing, I’m not sure, time will tell.

    Of course she is an icon, she’s one of the most successful artists of all time. I’m surprised this is even up for debate.

    Honey, let’s stop the foolery. Rihanna has not been out long enough to be a music icon. Plus, her music is forgettable and her album sales are rather mediocre. This thread is an insult to the true music icons.

    She’s been around longer than the Beatles and many other legends. She has sold more records than Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Celine Dion, Queen, etc. Saying her music is forgettable is entirely your opinion. Millions of other people have the exact opposite opinion.
