Pretty discussion-worthy thread btw! Till Year 2000, the list was Chefs kiss. It gave justice to all stars that truly dominated their years. However, many years in the 2000s and 2010s were in-accurate and needed some correcting so here is my take on it:

  • 2000: Britney Spears- The OIDIA era alone made her the biggest pop star in the planet

2000 and 2001 should go to Britney. That's it. If not her, it should be Destiny's Child. Afterall, they were Billboard's Top Artist for 2000 and 2001. :tiffdrink_miss_ms_ny_new_york_drinking_sips_sipping_tea_straw:
