We know what's up with the biggest '80s female pop stars because they've never stopped selling albums and making headlines: Madonna still stirs up controversy; Janet Jackson is on a top-selling world tour; and Gloria Estefan sang for Pope Francis and has a Broadway musical based on her career (Get On Your Feet). Unfortunately, we also know that Whitney Houston and Donna Summer left us too soon. But what about the decade's other pop sensations?


Many of them are singing, modeling lingerie, and scoring residencies in Las Vegas, thank you very much. Okay, maybe a few are playing casinos in Florida. Here's what happened to 20 of the most beloved ladies of '80s pop.
