"Material Girl" Madonna has had another No. 1 chart success -- this time heading a poll for music's 100 top female artistes.
She romped home to the No. 1 spot with 17 percent of votes cast by viewers of VH1 music channel in a poll to find the greatest women in music over the past 50 years.
With a career covering 19 years, 12 albums, three world tours and 60 million album sales, the star with the ever-changing public image, beat a galaxy of performers.
VH1 said Friday that over 750,000 votes were cast.
Kylie Minogue confirmed her popularity, winning second place in the top five, ahead of Celine Dion, Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin.
Kate Bush, forever famous for her 1978 debut single Wuthering Heights, was best-placed British singer, in 10th place.
Britney Spears was 9th, with fellow Americans ahead of her -- Tina Turner (6); Mariah Carey (7) and Janet Jackson (8).
Most of the greats made it into the chart. Barbra Streisand (22), Dusty Springfield (30), Shirley Bassey (45), Dolly Parton (47) and Kirsty McColl (74)
Billie Holiday came in at 50th, Yoko Ono 99th and in 100th spot was Erykah Badu.
Where to even start. Yeah a few listed there should be in the top 100 but c'mon. Kylie Minogue 2nd? Britney 9th? Obviously this poll sucks.
