14 Unconventional Queens of Pop Every Gay Man Should Stand For

14 Unconventional Queens of Pop Every Gay Man Should Stand For

My fave > your fave


The “queen of pop culture” has taken over social media and the music industry as of late pitting every high profile pop star against one another in a never ending battle of album sales, Billboard charts, and award show performances.

Obviously we all have our queen; Beyoncé, Taylor, Adele, Madonna, Gaga, Katy, Britney, Rihanna, Kelly, Mariah or Whitney... However, for some of us, our allegiance lies outside of this major pop-faction. Here are 14 unconventional queens of pop that could probably stand toe-to-toe against your fave.

Carrie Underwood, The Queen of Country Pop: 7 Grammys, 65M+ albums sold and according to Rolling Stone, "the voice of our generation across any genre." 

Carly Rae Jepsen, The Queen of Electronic Pop:Call Me Maybe is considered the 47th best-performing single of ALL TIME, and despite under performing, her third album Emotion is generally considered one of the best pop albums of this decade. 

Betty Who, The Queen of Alternative Pop: With a #1 on Billboard's Dance Charts, Betty is truly a pop artist for the new generation. 

Kacey Musgraves, The Queen of Liberal Pop: Two-time Grammy winner, this out-spoken, marijuana smokin', LGBT supportin' country singer is a beacon of light among a genre of conservative men. 

Little Mix, The Queens of Performance Pop: With 4x number one singles in the UK and last year's highest selling tour in England, this girl group can dance and sing their asses off - Fifth Harmony beware. 

Bonnie McKee, The Queen of Songwriting Pop. Not only has she written some of the biggest pop songs of the last decade; Teenage Dream, Hold It Against Me, and California Girls to name a few, she also has endeavored on her own personal pop stardom.

Alessia Cara, The Queen of Today's Pop: The break-out pop star of the year. 

Pentatonix, The Queens of A Capella Pop: Multi-platinum, 2x Grammy Award winning a capella group, with their first full-length originals album debuting at #1 on Billboard. 

Lizzo, The Future Queen of Hip Hop Pop: Lizzo gets a spot because her new song is fire and she is a much needed female rapper/singer in today's music industry. 

Troye Sivan, The Queen of Angsty Pop: Singer, songwriter, actor, YouTuber, and openly gay on top of it all. With numerous best new artist awards, and a top 40 hit, Troye is a force to be reckoned with. 

Shania Twain, The Queen of Country Pop (Hall of Fame) : The best-selling female country artist of all time with 3x albums in the top four most-sold country albums ever. With a new album on the way, the queen of country pop will reign again!

Teyana Taylor, The Queen of Dirty Pop: A prodigy of so many epic hip-hop artists, Teyana is poised to take the hip-hip crown. 

Tori Kelly, The Queen of Clean Pop: Tori has the voice, the songwriting skills, and the manager (Bieber and Ariana's Scooter Braun) to make a HUGE impact in the pop hierarchy. 

Jojo, The Queen of R&B Pop: After returning to music after a long hiatus, Jojo is back and ready to take the music industry by storm once again.
