The Billboard Box Score earnings have just been posted and it shows what we have all come to expect: Madonna is still the Queen of Pop, at least in terms of performing.

Lady Gaga has the top concert gross of the week with her four shows in Australia. However, Madonna dominates most of the other positions in the top 10 and she obtained those positions with one or two shows. Lady Gaga is still mostly an arena artist where Madonna is a veteran artist who plays big stadiums. Still, both artists show that the touring business is still going strong and that their fans will pay a lot of money for tickets.

In other Madonna news, her top ten single "Give Me All Your Lovin'" has been certified Gold by the RIAA in the US for selling more than 500,000 copies. The album MDNA, which her detractors call a "flop," is currently the fifth biggest selling album of the year in terms of international sales. Looks like 2012 will be a very profitable year for the Queen of Pop!

I don't agree with you on much, but you certainly have that much right.

Lady Gaga is still mostly an arena artist where Madonna is a veteran artist who plays big stadiums.

Those two are working their gay fans "to the death" to afford to purchase their overpriced tickets!!

There will always be stupid ppl out there who will slavishly and foolishly spend their $$ to see this old hag. The youngsters' music sucks so much that even watching madonna is a "step up" from the krap that they listen to. The foreigners will fawn at anything that is "American". That's why so many American-made flop movies perform so well overseas.

Let me remind you that Madonna not only is doing very good in other countries but in here in the US as well. Every city around the country is completely sold out or almost sold out.

I DID see Madonna's Who's That Girl world tour. The movie absolutely sucked but her concert was pretty successful. I saw it at Texas Stadium in Dallas in the summer of 87 (I think)...and as much as I LOVED her then, I would never see her now. She wasn't that great live...oh, her dancing was great and the experience was pretty darn cool, but she has never been a strong singer. I just can't imagine spending all that cash for her today...good for her but maybe since she has more money than God, she could drop her prices...alas...
