Who are the Reigning Queen and Princess of Pop?//
At 22 years old, Mexico’s Belinda is a three-time Latin GRAMMY nominee with a discography that spans three studio albums, four EPs, and a few couple roles on telenovelas — not bad for a Disney kid. Yup, she was in that Cheeta Girls movie.
A couple million albums sold, favorite artist awards, including a couple of wins for an Oye Award (the Mexican equivalent to the GRAMMY). Not bad at all. But as any princess, Belinda’s life is plagued with rumors not only involving her love life, but also her physical being — her weight seems to be a constant topic. She’s not very graceful dealing with the rumors, and ends up insulting her critics – maybe being graceful comes with the years.
Oh, yeah. How can we forget? She can’t dance, but she makes up for it by writing songs.

The youngest in the list, at 19 years old, is South Korean HyunA who recently made an online splash (for the better or the worse of Kpop) with Bubble Pop! (Exclamation mark and everything). She used to be a member of Wonder Girls before she dropped out — to her parents’ decision – for her health (she was 15 at the time).
Since 2009, HyunA has been a member of girl group 4minute, which sprung hits Muzik [MV] and Hot Issue [MV]. As a group they’ve been promoting themselves in Japan and other parts of Asia. However, it wasn’t until early July that HyunA released her debut solo EP Bubble Pop! with the main single making her an internet sensation.
Though her solo career is short — barely two months old — HyunA isn’t disassociated with scandal. Her debut video, though proving popular with a foreign audience, caused a stir in conservative Korean society, where the single would be promoted with live performances in different programs shown on TV broadcasts across the nation.
Her activities for the Bubble Pop! promotion were suspended, and a new single has already been chosen. The provocative dancing of tracing her long legs while wearing micro outfits proved to be too much for broadcast. No harm done to HyunA, though. She just keeps on working.

Yup, that’s it.
