If I were able to go back in time and give her 6 more #1's (so she would have one more than Mariah), I'd choose:

"Holiday", "Material Girl", "Into The Groove", "Dress You Up", "Express Yourself" and "Hung Up".

poor britney, poor bald one #1 hit britney

James Brown and Bruce Springsteen both have *0* #1 hits and NOBODY would question their talent, success, or legendary status.

How many #1 hits you have depends on what type of music you do/did and at what point in the rock era it was released. Its all relative and it has nothing to do with quality, talent, and often has no bearing on an artists total record sales. :)
