Who is pop star Chappell Roan? Gen Z COMPARE her to Madonna


Chappell Roan has been dubbed ‘Gen Z’s Madonna‘ as fans have been won over by her powerhouse vocals, experimental costumes and theatrical performances.


The rising sensation has sparked comparisons with the 80s icon on social media, with many citing her bold fashion, retro ballads and fierce stage presence as emulating the ‘Queen of Pop’. 

TikToker @waitingforthehook compared the singer’s performance on Jimmy Fallon live with Madonna’s MTV VMA performance of Like A Virgin in 1984, writing both had the ‘same energy’.

‘History repeats itself,’ the caption added, as footage showed both women donned in eccentric all-white ensembles dominate the stage.


Elsewhere, sharing a carousel of the star’s make-up looks, TikTok user @allthatglittersisour called Chappell ‘the next Madonna’. 

The images harked back to the 80s icon – who, along with Cyndi Lauper – was renowned for her bold eyeshadow and bright lipstick. 

In another video, influencers Terry and Kaniyia – who react to vocalists – were blown away by their listening to Chappell’s hit Good Luck, Babe!


Fans rushed to the comments to make comparisons with other superstars known for their remarkable stage presence and songwriting talents – including Kate Bush and Taylor Swift

One also offered: ‘She is our generation’s Madonna.’

People on X also appear torn on exactly which 80s icon Chappell reminds them of, due to the nostalgia her music harks for the decade, with its synth heavy melodies and retro vocals. 

‘My mom always gets so happy when i put on pink pony club because she says it reminds her of being a teenager and dancing to Madonna,’ one fan, @imnotjuIes, wrote.
