    Ashiuhto,


    Yes, your sentence is perfectly grammatical.

    But -- although I cannot explain why -- I feel that the sentence

    sounds "incomplete."

    That is, I think that there are other people like me who would

    ask ourselves: One of the most famous entertainers where?

    Therefore, I feel that the sentence should be something like:

    The pop singer ... was the one of the most famous entertainers

    in the world

    in this nation

    The pop singer ... was one of this nation's most famous entertainers./ was

    one of the world's most famous entertainers.


    THANK YOU
