So RadioFacts.com released their lists of the top female singers of all time. For the most part it is hard to deny most of the people on this list. However, I’m not sure if having Rachelle Ferrell but not Mary J. Blige or Jill Scott is a complete list.
Not to mention, are we strictly talking the last 50-60 years, because any lists that does not include Ella Fitzgerald or Sarah Vaughan is lacking. Still for the most part, the list was pretty good, but there are some glaring omissions.
Here is the list
- Aretha Franklin
- Patti Labelle

- Mariah Carey
- Rachelle Ferrell

What do you think. Who is missing off of this list?

Another reason I am very particular what reality shows I give my attention.
Last week, Jill Scott found herself on the bad side of Tamar Braxton and Towanda Braxton after she professed her support of Mary Mary’s WeTV reality series on Twitter. Jill wrote, “Please watch Mary Mary on WE tv. Finally a real representation. Yay!!!!!!!!!” In response, “Of freakin what?” and Towanda chimed in to a follower, writing, “suga….opinions we can handle but black shade against black shade I can not!!”
Scott noted, “Just because I love oranges doesn’t mean I HATE apples.”
In other words, while Jill wasn’t directly throwing shade at the Braxton family, two of the Braxtons practically proved whatever point they assumed she was making about them indirectly.
Meanwhile, speaking to Singersroom, Tina and Erica of Mary Mary spoke on the matter, with Erica saying, “People are always gonna express their opinions…I really have no response for someone getting upset at someone else’s opinion…I’m just happy that Jill…
