Which Pop Star Are You, According To Your Zodiac Sign?

It’s unlikely that any of us will ever actually be huge pop stars like Britney Spears, Madonna, or Justin Timberlake, but we can all daydream about what kind of pop star we would be if given the chance. Even better than daydreaming, we can actually find out what our pop star persona would be by examining our zodiac signs. Because zodiac signs dictate personality traits, likes and dislikes, and other various inclinations, they can be used to find out things like what type of kisser you are or which Disney Princess you happen to be. Likewise, your zodiac sign can also tell you which kind of pop star you would be if you were ever to become a huge pop star (good luck!).

Pop stars come in a wide range, from Adele to Lady Gaga to Taylor Swift. Some are more personal and emotional, while others are more fun-loving and cheerful. Find out if you’re more of a Beyoncé or a Michael Jackson based on your zodiac sign below.


  • Aries: Michael Jackson

    Aries is the sign of the brave badass. They are confident, motivated, and ambitious. Their goals may seem outlandish to some, but they always accomplish whatever it is they set out to do. Because of these qualities, they often find themselves in leadership positions and positions of great power. Nobody embodies these qualities quite like Michael Jackson. Considering Jackson has been dubbed “The King of Pop” and was the best-selling artist the year of his death, it’s safe to say that he was and will always be one of the greatest pop artists of all time. It’s that level of ambition and success that makes Michael Jackson the Aries of pop singers.

  • Taurus: Taylor Swift

    As a sign, Taurus is grounded, loyal, and nurturing. They give a lot in relationships and expect the same in return. When a Taurus doesn’t receive the level of love and devotion they feel they deserve, they can become jealous, controlling, and possessive. They are also known for being one of the most stubborn signs of the zodiac. Because of this affinity for love and the intense sides of relationships, Taylor Swift totally fits the archetype of a Taurus. The country-pop singer is known for penning scathing songs about her exes, which is exactly what a scorned Taurus would do. Swift has also been known for her feuds with celebrities like Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, and many others. Not to mention that Swift loves baking, and Taureans are known for their love of food! Taylor Swift is certainly the stubborn bull of pop singers.

  • Gemini: Madonna

    Gemini is the sign of the twin, as they are known for their duality. This sign is flexible, adaptable, inconsistent, and nervous. They want to see and do everything in the world and the impossibility of that task often leaves them frustrated. While it may seem like they are all over the place at times, they are also curious, friendly, and warm. This adaptable sign is perfectly embodied by Madonna, as the Queen of Pop is known for her endless stage personas. Madonna reinvents her sound and image with each new album. On top of that, Madonna has successfully adapted to changes in the music industry for nearly four decades.

  • Cancer: Adele

    Cancers are extremely connected to their emotions. Because of this, they tend to be nurturing homebodies, who are loyal and sympathetic, but they can also be insecure, moody, and suspicious. These deeply sensitive and emotional qualities that define Cancer are totally in sync with Adele. Adele is celebrated not only for her powerhouse voice, but also for her emotional lyrics. Often tackling unrequited love, love lost, or loneliness, Adele’s lyrics are at once deeply personal and completely universal. This is also how Cancers understand feelings, as their connection to their own emotions helps them have a wider understanding of others' emotions.

  • Leo: Justin Timberlake

    Just like a lion, Leo is the king of the jungle. They are creative, generous, and warm. They have a charismatic personality that naturally draws others towards them; however, they can also be a tiny bit addicted to the spotlight. At their worst, Leos are self-centered and arrogant, as there is no such thing as too much attention to them. Justin Timberlake perfectly fits the vibe of a Leo. Even in *NSYNC, Timberlake was always the star of the show. Since transitioning into a solo career, Timberlake has released Grammy Award-winning albums, appeared in Oscar-winning films, and even won Emmy Awards for his work on Saturday Night Live. While all pop stars love the spotlight to some degree, Timberlake loves it like a Leo.

  • Virgo: Beyoncé

    Without a doubt, Virgo is the hardest working sign. Virgos are logical, practical, and kind. However, they are be too critical of themselves and fall into patterns of all work, no play. Also, Virgo doesn’t necessarily love the spotlight. Sure, they like receiving credit for a job well done, but they don’t crave attention the way some others signs do. Without a doubt, Virgo is Beyoncé, as she is one of the hardest working, most celebrated pop (well, kind of pop) singers ever. While Beyoncé is featured in the media for her career success and overall perfection, she doesn’t seek out media coverage through obvious stunts. On top of that, Beyoncé pretty much stopped being formally interviews in 2015, relying on her social media as a way to communicate with fans. Having the best-selling album of 2016 and not giving a single interview that year requires finesse only a Virgo could summon.
