Pretty impressive, they are the only tennis players on the list and one of the few athletes.
The complete list is on the website and they are showing it on VH1 in 10 segments. I think Venus and Serena will be on tonight.

You should check out the illustration, its pretty funny ;)

I have seen a show on mtv, where they said the same same also. It was hosted by Beyoncé. I think it was in 2000. And I agree :)

Where is Anna Kournikova.......I imagine she should be higher on the list since she was in a few music videos and she is all over the place.....therefore Anna should be like in the top 100 around #60 or something like that.....sad since that is probably higher than her current ranking right now......

From espn's daily quickie:
For whatever reason, he (Kobe) didn't make the final cut, which included 10 sports names: (8) MJ; (16) Ali; (51) Tiger; (58) Magic; (65) Jackie Robinson; (96) Gretzky; (106) DiMaggio; (136) Babe; (156) Venus/Serena; (188) Namath.

The list is crap cos they actually list Pamela Anderson way ahead of Whitney Houston(#116). How is that possible....whitney had million sellers and broke records with them, she also had movies that did well at the box office and on video.....(bodyguard, waiting to exhale,) and to top it off she even had movies that she produced, (Princess Diaries) top 100 million at the box office..........what have Pamela Anderson done to be ranked higher......and not to mention that Whitney tops Pam in the drama or diva department........the only thing that Pam is known for is baywatch, vip and her "silly"-con implants.

Whitney even did Cinderella on network television and even that set new standards for tv movies........so how is Pam ranked ahead of Whitney again?..........even Will Smith gets a higher ranking.

If these people are so much bigger pop icons, then why don't vh1 offer them to constantly appear on the "divas live" show.....I guess that doesn't make any sense at all huh?

Anytime a "list" of any subject matter is compiled, it is bound to be controversial. That is a given. And this list is no different. Often we critisize the list without even knowing what are the criteria for being on the list in the first place. One this in irrefutable (SP), Venus and Serena have had a PROFOUND impact on the sport of tennis on and off the courts.

I am not disputing Serena and Venus but some of the other celebrities or icons..........I think it should be based on International appeal also....so once again, how is Pam Anderson ranked so high?

Maccardel, I thing the key word in your response is "international". Many americans think of America as the "world". The assumption that if someone is popular in America, therefore they must be popular in the "world" is a flawed one. Since VH1 is an american medium, they were probably focussing on who or what is popular within an american context. Obviously I do not support this blatant display of arrogance, but it been that way for some time.

Don't even waste your energy on this list, I mean they put people like J.Lo, Britney ahead of Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand, etc. Also Celine should never be ahead of Whitney Houston or Barbra Streisand. These people opened the door for all these artists and they have accomplished much more for a much longer time. J.Lo before Muhammed Ali? :lol: Justin Timberlake before Whitney? :lol: Heck even today, I see young singers pick Whitney songs for contests and competitions, everyone mentions her as an influence, she had a huge influence. Also why would they put The Rock on the list and not Hulk Hogan who's 10 times bigger and has been out there for decades? Are they talking about NOW or ALL-TIME? :rolleyes:

yeah, um, the title of the list is POP icons. when you think of bar n whitney do you automatically think of pop culture? britney, jlo, justin go hand in hand with pop culture.

this isnt a most influential list.
