  Madonna attacks manufactured pop
Updated 28 March 2003, 13.13
Madonna became famous in the 1980s
Madonna has attacked TV shows like Pop Idol, for creating music stars based on their looks rather than their talent.

In an interview with the music magazine 'Q' she said such shows were harming the music industry by making music and musicians all sound and look the same.

The Queen of Pop even dared to attack the Princess of Pop - Britney Spears, as well as Pink and Christina Aguilera.

Christina Aguilera is famous for her music and revealing outfits

She said she didn't like the way record company people find girls who look right and can sing, and then work out exaclty what sort of image will make them successful.

She added "I'm not saying those girls can't grow into something, but I really don't know where we're going with the world."

Other stars don't like it either

Madonna isn't the only music star who's critical who TV talent shows. George Michael and Elton John have also attacked manufactured pop music.
