1Taylor SwiftTaylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin ...read more.

Wow, she's had some boyfriends in the past, she's just the worst human being ever, right? Her romantic life does not mean her music is bad, so stop saying you hate her because she has a normal set of hormones. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

Give TS props, being able to WRITE catchy, commercially viable tunes virtually on the spot time after time is a rare skill that only handful of people have. Since pop songwriting is such a valuable skill money-wise, if more people could do it, they would be doing so, but they aren't.

We don't hate her because of her romance life. Not at all. - Puga

2LordeElla Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor, better known by her stage name Lorde, is a New Zealand singer-songwriter.

Lorde hits that awkward place of "alternative mainstream". If that makes sense. Like popular counterculture that does a 180 and becomes culture. I personally think her songs all hit the same note and basically sound the same. But I kinda dig it, to be honest. I had an extremely brief Lorde phase about a year ago. - keycha1n

So let me get this straight, you people beg for an artist to come out that sings about something others than sex and money and drugs and have an artist that is actually real and down to earth. Then when one comes out you find any possible flaw to make fun of. What is wrong with you!? - TheEvilNuggetCookie

I think the problem is that she doesn't do too well live.

How can people hate her? - SamuiNeko

3Ed SheeranEdward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

Ed Sheeran's actually a good singer, unlike the vast majority of popular singers these days. But if I had to pick between him and Halestorm, I'd go for Halestorm in a heartbeat. - Turkeyasylum

Ed is in my opinion the best artist currently out there.

Ed Sheeran is actually the best mainstream pop artist.

He's not bad by any means. He's just forgettable and drab--like so many others before him. - PetSounds

She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom, "Victorious" . She later become a singer ...read more.

I don't hate Ariana Grande... I used to watch her on Victorious and thought and still thinks she has incredible singing talent. However, she has done a multitude of stupid things. Like saying she hoped her fans would die, or shouting in a public shop that she hated America (i mean, nowadays, who doesn't? But it's stupid to shout), and overall sexualizing herself a lot. Like yes, she can do whatever she wants and I couldn't really care anymore, but there are justifiable reasons to not like her. - keycha1n

To be honest, all she's doing is wasting her talent. - Turkeyasylum

I love her music! Beautiful, angelic voice. - Pegasister12

8Ellie Goulding

Her voices irritates the stunner out of me. Am I the only one? - Turkeyasylum

He's bad, but is he really our biggest fish to fry? - TheEvilNuggetCookie

They may not be lyrically or technically great and their humour is immature, but they are one of the most creative rap artists out there with a unique style. Their songs use dark and imaginative imagery, they created a whole universe their tracks are set in, they refused to go mainstream even after a hit single, they stay true to themselves to the fullest and you have to admit that even though they tend to play serial killer personas on each album they also make deep songs that might not be complex but actually have a great premise and/or message. Listen to "Halls of Illusions", "Hallelujah", "The Tower", "How",...
Their main problem is that their biggest hit was unintentionally funny.
But really: you want rappers that rap about topics other than party, money and sex, but call ICP some of the worst. I don't get how. (Also: Mike E Clarke is onr of the most underrated producers in hip hop history)
Also fun fact: even though they aren't famous over here, critical reception of ...more - Martin_Canine

Spongebozz is a German rapper who won several battlerap leages in Germany. He has a huge danbase and constantly delivers complex rhymes and perfect doubletime rap
However, as his stage mame suggests, he performs as a gangster version of SpongeBob SquarePants by wearing a costume. That is the reason he has a large number of haters and gets negative reviews. However, his technique is among the best in German rap history, and despite the way he performs his raps are very VERY graphically violent. - Martin_Canine
