Worst Female Singers of All Time

You know their are great female singers but then their are some aweful ones. Let's expose these ladies.

The Top TenXW

1Nicki MinajNicki Minaj is an American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe". ...read more.

No duh shes the worst female singer. Horrible! She didn't get in the bizz based on talent that's for sure. She only got in cause shes got a huge chest and huge behind. Her videos are disturbing and disgusting, her voice is auto tuned, and even then it sounds horrible. She can't rap. She ENJOYS being treated like a sex toy, and really wants to be a sex toy. Gives women a terrible name. In every video she is constantly half naked or ready to have sex. I'd like to see her wear normal clothes for once. Her facial expressions are creepy as hell, and her lyrics are pointless and stupid. Whenever she makes her voice go really high or really low, it just freaks me out. She has no respect for her body and thinks shes all that. Why is she judging american idol when she can't sing? Her fake looks are what got her here, nothing more. She is destroying womens reputation and music - dragonfly99

Why is she down here?
SHE'S TERRIFYING!
Her voice (live), her videos, and her face are all nasty as hell!
She shoudn't even be on a commercial or magazine

NICKI MINAJ YOU CAN'T BE A SINGER YOU'RE AWFUL

She only gets publicity cause she has a big ass if you ask me

2Miley Cyrus

She is just a really bad actor/singer/celebrity... Pointless plots and bad music videos (don't do a fisheye lens and a pouty eyes closed thing (7 things), it looks awful). Even Rebecca Black is in some ways better.

Her speaking voice is like nails on a chalkboard... And she always has the same dumb expression on her face.

When she still young, she looks fine and nothing bad. But then, she became a disgusting, awful and the worst singer in my opinion. What made her into this? I don't know! This should be number 1 of the worst female singers! I swear this singer have no point on what is she did to herself, her voice and her expressing emotion! Her hair, her face, her personality disgusted me enough. So throw your fame away, Miley. - TheRegular1227

Remember remember when that trash was hannah Montana

3Rebecca Black

God! Who told her she has talent? She seriously has no brain and her music can KILL someone! My mom had a heart attack when she heard her song 'friday'
WHO FLIPPING CARES ABOUT FRIDAY? It comes every week... Stop acting like its the last friday of you stinking, useless life rebecca...

She can sing, however, her song friday sucks balls. and she was already a great singer until she auto tuned her whole song friday

I hear she got bullied out of school after making Friday... Now her only friend is auto tune. FOREVER ALONE...

You should try a lot harder and why are not in first place? Because just because your father and mother had a lot of money that you got to make a lot music. Well if that chance I would have been a billionaire by now.

She is like not even a singer in my book so...

4Selena Gomez

I personally think Selena is a real person. She has worked so hard to get to the position she is in now. However, she is a grown woman now and we can see through her music, her movies and her physical presentation how much she has matured. Now aside from Selena, I personally admire singers that write their own lyrics, and I know Selena has written a small number of her songs... But I found the lyrics she sings contradictory to one another.

Take Who Says for example. This song has meaningful lyrics: you are beautiful.

"You may be insecure.
To me I wasn't good enough
But who are you to judge
When you're a diamond in the rough. "

But sadly, she sings Bang Bang Bang which lyrics include:

"My new boy use to be a model
He looks way better than you
He looks way better than you do"

Shallow much? And the rest of the lyrics is trash talking this boy and downsizing him to another boy. I get it. Maybe she has been cheated on. I ...more

Come on its just a song about nick jonas, personally I love both of them and I really like that song because it just fun and it has a good rhythm I don't really like the lyrics to be honest but you can't say she is a trash singer come on just listen to the heart wants what it wants and then come back and vote again

Okay, so let me begin by saying that you should judge a singer by their live ability since in studio anything can be done. Next, her live singing is terrible because she is not in tune, her voice does not even come close to some notes, she uses auto-tune live which is pathetic. She also falls into the category of another disney girl. Just to show I don't put everyone in this category, I do have to say the one and only person from disney who has talent and might possibly be one of the top 25 best female singers is demi lovato. After hearing her I was surprised at how good she was. I made me think twice about selena, but then I listened to her again and realized selena is even worst than I thought

She can't sing live. She use autotune in her recording just to make her voice good. But she really can't sing.

I love her. But she really needs improving when singing live. Her songs are good though.

5Taylor 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.

Taylor is a terrible singer and person. She is better than rebecca black, but all she does is put the same color lipstick on every day and curl iron her hair, Like someone said. Her songs are babyish and only appeal towards little girls and their family. She has a very weak vocal range too, according to a chart, only topping Luke Bryan. Her voice is nasally, which can be a good thing for SOME singers, like Leann Rimes, Celine Dion and Martina McBride. It makes me want to deject all my food like its poison just when a three minute song comes on the radio that she writes. They say she's sweet just because she whines like an attention seeking baby to all of her brainwashed fans that one of the 1700 men she has dated forgot her puppy's last name and bashes them. Being pretty does not make you a good singer. Adele, for example, may not have much physical beauty, but she's talented and truly gorgeous with a phenomenal voice. I wish you were still alive, Whitney, I pray for you and your ...more

Look taylor swift is my favorite singer I may not be able to relate to her music but I enjoy it and just because she writes about the awful or good men in her life that does not mean she is a bad singer

Well her fans mostly consist of young children. They she's the best singer of all time. Well, sorry but you can't make a statement like that if you have a limited exposure to music. What do children know about "All Time" they have not been around long enough to even have any say. They need to go back and listen to older music and female artists who have been around much longer doing their craft and you will find out there are 1000's better. Who can sing, play the guitar much better and have worked harder and longer. Don't disrespect artists who have earned it. You should be respectful and listen to artists like Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell, Annie Lennox and many though the history of music before you can make statements about she's the best of all time, best singer ever. When I was very young and got into music I had the respect to go back and listen to older artists and find out that in music history my favorites were not the best. And I was mature enough to take it! ...more

Taylor's songs never have one main subject. Shake it off starts as " why do you care what everyone else says? " And then it goes to " my boyfriend cheated on me and I'm gonna make him jealous". An then her newest song " New Romantics " doesn't even rhyme!

6Ke$haKesha was born in L.A and is American. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America

I seriously can't see why Kesha isn't in the top ten.

Horrible autotune singing! Songs just about drugs, sex and partying!

Seriously, she's just horrible!

Hands down the most relentlessly untalented woman is music, her songs are nothing but spoken word auto-tuned to sound "good" if you really can call it that. She's another example of what happens when white trash gets money.

Good rhythm to her songs but they are only about sex partying and drugs mainly things no one is looking forward to

Truly, truly awful

7Lady Gaga

Dear people who are calling her a fraud,
She lipsings, but her songs are hers. I bet that your favorite singers (like that Macklemore crap) lipsing too.

Dear people who are calling her weird,
She's herself and she's not gonna change just because someone told her to! I respect that! Her style is her own. She wants to die an original. Lady Gaga stands out in a crowd and isn't afraid to be herself.

Lady Gaga is probably one of the MOST original artists that have walked this planet. She CAN sing and she's not afraid to sing what SHE believes, not what the entire world thinks.

Her fashion sense gives me the creeps and her song downright annoying..

For the sake of humanity, please people, take a brief moment of reflection about what you think of this woman. Do you really think that she is original in the world of music (industry)? Has she created a new style or even had any influence over any other (real) artist? I really doubt it, since she still does the same pop standard as everyone else out there. I heard some of her new jazz stuff, and it was decent, even good compared to what she had previosly done, I can give you that. But she is not that talented, wake up. She might have a good voice, nothing from another world, there are (and there were) MUCH better ones at different styles of music. So talking about the music she sells, it fits the pop average quality (which is actually quite low). Not to mention her lyrics, they are so dull and dumb (Just Dance, telephone, applause, highway unicorn and I can keep on mentioning) only refering sexual themes, drugs, popularity and otrher silly teenage thoughts.

I can't hate her ...more

Just Horrible

8Rihanna

It really annoys me how mediocre singers like Rihanna are so successful because they use auto tune and dance around naked in their videos. It's never about the love of music for Rihanna it's always what outrageous thing can I do so I can get even more publicity and make more money. (i.E. S&M by being banned in 5 countries she got huge amounts of publicity and the song was very successful)

I hate this drug-addict singer and she's lip-sinking! Her hair look road-killed and she wears skimpy outfits! She ruins every video especially the ones that her and Eminem created called, "Love the Way You Lie"! Megan Fox, I love you but stay away from Rihanna!

This girl can't sing live, she sing nasal and sing half of her songs and get tired easily... You call that a singer? Lmfao, if she wasn't pretty no one would care about her! Hoe-rrible!

Should NOT be this high on the list. End of story.

9Iggy Azalea

Put Iggy Azalea above Kesha and Nicki Minaj! She is worse than the two of them combine. At least Kesha and Nicki Minaj show that they have some talent and skill and are both wicked hot. BUT IGGY AZALEA HAS NO FLOW AND SHE IS SO FAKE WITH HER ACCENT AND SHE'S UGLY. Even with auto tune that Kesha and Nicki Minaj use they still sound more realistic than Iggy. Also Kesha has way better lyrics and doesn't write about the same thing over and over again, Nicki Minaj's songs sound the same, but in a way they work plus she's a way better freestyler than Iggy, Iggy is one of the worst freestylers I have ever heard. ALL OF IGGY AZALEA'S SONGS SOUND THE SAME! THEY'RE ALL ABOUT HOW GANGSTA SHE THINKS SHE IS WHEN IN REALITY SHE ISN'T! I have never seen a female musician as fake is Iggy Azalea. She is also even worse than Rebecca Black and Miley Cyrus, I didn't think that was possible to be worse than Rebecca and Miley, but Iggy actually managed to pull it off, Well Done!

Honestly I can't think of anybody more deserving of the #1 spot than Iggy Azalea. She is everything I hate about the music industry. I'm sick and tired of seeing Nicki Minaj at the #1 spot when Piggy Azalea should be at the #1 spot. No woman in music has pissed me off more than Iggy

She's worse than Nicky Minaj she wants to be black so bad. I mean have you heard her freestyle

She makes Nicki Minaj sound very talented in rapping like Eminem. At least Nicki sounds her gender. Iggy sounds like a guy.

10Brtiney Spears

I laugh at when people on facebook, twitter or youtube compete this fat fake voiced skank against Divas like christina aguilera, whitney houston, mariah carey etc saying britney doesn't autotune and she doesn't lip sync. I need to tell you blind geeks to go to specsavers and get glasses, maybe also a hearing aid. SHE IS THE CREATOR OF AUTO TUNE AND LIP SYNC!

Yuck. She can't sing for crap. It's all voice editing for her.

She had weird toddler kind of voice when she sang, today she is just overproduced machine autotune kind of voice mixed with dental drill. She never sings live and Thank God for that. In my opinion one of the worst female "singers" ever.

Overrated woman with an annoying voice.

What the hell is Katy Perry doing on this list?!? She writes her own lyrics and they're very inspiring!

Excuse me Hello anybody home Why is katy on this list I mean she's the best singer I ever heard wake up people she's beautiful firework is the best song I ever heard I like wide awake and roar as well what are you all thinking

Best singer? Listen to Elton John, Billy Joel, Coldplay, Queen, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Beatles, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, or Jackie Evancho, then come back and see if she's the best. - okcnaline

Katy Perry does have great songs, admittedly. But only in the studio, where her voice is obscured by autotune and effects. If you listen to her sing live, she just can't sing. Period. Her voice may be ok during intimate stripped down performances, but when she tries to "belt" into the mic, she is always off key and pretty much always screaming. Katy Perry has no vocal control, and therefore should definitely be HIGHER on this list.

I pee better songs than this horror sings

12Ariana Grande

I'm a Mariah fan, but I will defend Ariana and say that she is a really good singer. Ariana is actually talented and sweet. She's not a terrible singer so she shouldn't even be on this list.

WHY is Ariana Grande lower than Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and Mariah Carrey? Ariana copies Taylor's style and Selena's video. She also have the same voice as Mariah Carrey. People only like her because of her singing, but she is so rude toward Victoria Justice and Selena Gomez WITHOUT any reasons. She and Selena (who is number 4 on the list because of Arianators and Beliebers) should switch places

Ariana grade are you for real people! You could not sing better than any of the people on this list so I bet if they showed up at your house making fun of your voice you would be pretty upset and mad! So stop saying they sound like stupid animal or can't sing! Because probably can't sing any better than her

She can't sing very well

13Meghan Trainor

I don't really like her because even though all about that bass is supposed to be positive it doesn't seem that way. I'm not saying it's skinny shaming, it's just after she refers to slim people as 'b*****s', she proceeds to let us know that 'boys like a little more booty to hold at night,' as if the only way to have a good boyfriend is to have a big bum. It might have had good intentions but it sent the wrong message to me.

Also her and Charlie Puth's song 'Marvin Gaye' is pointless and stupid.

Her message is good. You are perfect, no matter what your weight is but she uses curse words and criticizes skinny people. Some people can help it if they are skinny. Some people can't help it if they aren't. But you don't need to go around cursing at skinny people!

These female on the List are horrible

Taylor swift is worse than her but can't stand meghan

Megan Trainor? Have u got to be kidding? She's a great singer

Beyonce should not be on this list she can't sing! Excellent voice & she works hard on her craft.

She's a singer? Could have fooled me?

Beyonce has a good voice, but her songs like partition suck and are one of the worst I heard in my life, what happened to Beyonce? She used to make good songs, but her new songs suck so much.

Beyonce should not be on this list she can sing anyone on this list under the table

16Kim Kardashian

What the hell, she's not a singer now is she! THE WORLD HAS ENDED! Kim Kardashian is literally one of the worst people in the world, she is so fake, she has loads of plastic surgery, she is only famous for being alive, whereas everyone else on this list had to WORK to get where they are now. Kim is not the most annoying female, she's the most annoying person in general, along with her fake family. Except Caitlyn. I like Caitlyn. I don't watch 'Keeping up with the Kardashians', by the way.

Before all of you start saying she isn't a singer- she made a single called jam (turn it up) and it was pretty awful...

Just heard Jam (Turn It Up)...yeah, that song alone qualifies her enough to be higher on this list than Taylor Swift. Hell, Rebecca Black only made two songs and she's higher than Taylor.

Why the hell is she on this list?

18Demi Lovato

Demi location and Taylor swift are alright but selena Gomez ant sing for s! %#

Um, what the actual frack is up with the people voting for Demi? She's talented, really talented, she always has been. For once she's a singer that actually has a voice and a brain, and she's still as far as I can see a really sweet person. Sometimes she seems a little edgy but, to be honest, wouldn't we all be if we had to be in the spotlight like her? Demi's songs have actual meaning, and they give off a LOT better of a message than everyone else on this list.

Why is she here? She seems really sweet and even though she fell she got back up again. She is inspiring, not like SOME people on this list (not including Taylor Swift, she should NOT be here either).

You should hear her sing "Stone Cold" on American Idol. She is an Amazing singer.

She doesn't have a very strong voice, but she is still a good singer. I have heard her sing live on American Idol and still sang really good there.

Not terrible but horribly generic and boring are better ways to describe her. - Swellow
