NEW YORK (AP) — If there is a “best-of” list for music this year, it’s a safe bet to put Adele on top.   Billboard has declared her the No. 1 artist of 2011. Rihanna was No. 2, followed by Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Lil Wayne. The list, announced Friday, takes into account album sales, charting singles, radio airplay and other factors.

Rounding out the list was Bruno Mars at No. 6, Nicki Minaj at No. 7, Taylor Swift at No. 8, Justin Bieber at No. 9 and Chris Brown at No. 10.

  1. Even though mainstream pop music pretty much sucks in my humble opinion,Adele is the one bright spot.Anyone over the age of 40 most likely will agree that today’s pop music(or what passes as pop music)sucks and we all (over 40 crowd)miss the 70’s and 80’s music with a passion.I am a former radio DJ in Pittsburgh and to tell you the truth I don’t miss the job one bit.That’s why I listen to talk radio most often.
    Most of these “artist”must have slept with someone or paid off someone to get a record deal.They didn’t get the record deal from talent.It is save to say that Adele is a welcome change from all that rap garbage and white kids trying to sing like they are black.
