She is a GREAT songwriter. But her singing is average, nothing special about it. If you compare her to... Well, for example Sia, who is also a songwriter and has a FANTASTIC voice, there's a big difference.

Um, she's underrated. People call her the worst thing ever because of a few slightly above mediocre songs. She has a pretty decent voice, and her songwriting abilities are almost off the wall. - WonkeyDude98

She's so overrated... I agree she's a good songwriter but her songs are monotone and the tune is meaningless.. there are plenty of great singers who should be more famous than her
