She's no Lady Gaga, but she'll do in a pinch. I'd take her over NSYNC, Britney Spears, and any other lame-o of the 90s. - Swellow

She's literally the reason I think Pop music died after the 90's ended. - BoredJeff02

She is not talented and her songs are all bullcrap. She also has this stuck up attidute nowadays talking crap about YouTubers, asking to take down parodies of her videos that she didn't like, recently the whole Kanye drama. She is fake and yes, she ruined pop music.

...Wha? Coldplay are one of the only good pop-rock bands out there. - Swellow

Coldplay is quite good.the only problem is that they have changed their music genres a lot.And another reason is most of the good songs of them are underrated.So people often miss those songs.So I don't think that they are that bad (my opinion) - zxm

15Meghan Trainor

Although right now mainstream pop is eh for me, it was in a horrid state in 2014 and 2015. Meghan Trainor is one of the contributors to that horrid state, among others. - SwagFlicks

Absolutely, completely, and utterly ruined mainstream pop, a section of the genre I was already starting to get shaky on. - WonkeyDude98

Can't bloody stand Meg, but to be fair, pop was already in an abysmal state by the time she showed up. - PositronWildhawk

Meghan Trainor is one of the few talented young artists in the pop industry right now. She's most definitely not the one that ruined pop music.

He became famous by accident. He is stupid. Ignore him and his fans.

With his crappy generic bubblegum pop hits he made pop music a horrible genre.
By the way, why there are so many talented people and groups in this list?
