Worst Pop Artists
The Top TenXW
Justin Bieber just sounds like a 6-year-old girl. I don't understand any of his fans. And why bother making a movie about this guy?
I was in a party in our school (a year ago), once. I was there to change the song, CD, whatever. But then, ten girls wanted me to play Justin Bieber. I didn't know much about him, so I thought "OK". But after playing the song 3 seconds 20 people walked to my desk and desired changing the song with some swear words I'm not gonna repeat here. I changed the song.
And you call this music?!
Thank you finally this piece gets on one of these "worst of" lists thanks to all of you who voted for this cookie cutter pop scum bag. And I agree mj should definitely not be on this list.
He sucks ass and his music is total, incomparable crap. nevertheless, he has an army of fans who has crap where it used to be brain. he sounds like a 12-year-old girl and his lyrics are only for stupid teenage girls who dreams about love and other crap. so if I organize a party and you'll try to play Justin Bieber songs - get ready to get a bottle full of pee poured over your head.
The first time I heard him I thought he was a girl. Seriously.V26 Comments
She is even worse than Justin Bieber. While many people on this list deserve to be here, Nicki Minaj is one of the worst I know of.
She's not only an insult to RAP culture, but also to the female gender and African American community. The worst part is she know it and she knowingly embraces it.
She is awful she is a little bit talented
I simply hate herV7 Comments
Strongly dislike her. I do have some respect for the woman because she is still a relevant pop icon after 17+ years in the industry. But she's long run her course and her music lacks meaning and quality.
Look, she isn't garbage, but I wouldn't call her good either. I do like Make Me though - ProPanda
Her songs are horrible and no matter how much she auto tunes her voice she still sounds awful.
Her voice sounds fakeV4 Comments

It pains me that people and bands like them are popular nowadays. To be honest, their music isn't terrible, but it's the kind of music that any 5 guys can do... better. Obviously, they're only popular because of their attractiveness to any girl who hasn't become an adult yet. And I wish the popularity of artists wasn't entirely about "sex appeal," because there is a lot more to music than that. Just goes to show that the less effort put into the pop industry, the more popular it is.
These group of boys are horrendous! It annoys me how many 12 year old girls are crazy over there music. There's nothing special about it. Just a bunch of mediocre 20 year old guys who think they know the ins and outs of love but don't. Zayn was absolutely right for leaving these guys in the dust, for their whole music act is horrible and meaningless.
One Direction stole from many bands, and they are musical cyanide. Someone tried comparing them to Gorillaz before. Obviously that person is retarded.
The worst British band of all time and how is this not #1..!V6 Comments
This Little Madonna wanna be. I can't understand why people suddenly like a bisexual lady with auto tune. There's only one guy I know who likes her and he's been to a lunatic asylum.
Honestly after Madonna there has been just too many fake followers who think they're unique. First Britney Spears, then Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry and now this fat-voices Lady Loser.
Absolutely ridiculous. Doesn't have a real voice and only gets attention due to her infamous outrageous outfits that she feels the need to wear to every red carpet event.
Just a awful voice. If you hear "you and I" and see her she is the living medusa. She is even worse then Ke$ha.
No applause for ApplauseV1 Comment
Why would I want to hear an even worse version of already bad songs, or even good songs? How they have twenty something albums is just shameful
Who buys this? Stop giving them money to make more!
Kidz bop makers songs that are already horrible- worse! Most of the kids on there are teenagers so they can say a few swear words anyways. We don't need anymore censored garbage! If you Rly can't tolerate a cuss word, there are ample censored versions of songs available. We don't need these sell outs!
Who even thought that this bull carp was a good idea?V10 Comments
All of her songs sound the same, all the music videos are similar, and she promotes stereotypes...
LOLZ. All this time I thought All About That Bass was sung by a ten year oldV2 Comments
That was the worst Superbowl Halftime Show I've ever heard. Horrible singers when they don't have the autotune helping. - VADERtheIMPALER
They only made that one song, with the name I forget. That's the only thing that got them popular. They were only relevant until about 2008, where their poularity was at its peak. Even then, not everyone listened to them and they lost popularity in 2009 and 2011. They aren't even cool anymore, they're just so yesterday and nobody really would have payed attention to them if it wasn't for that one song. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Worst lyrics of any band I listen to. - bornmurphedV1 Comment
I can't believe there was no Rebecca Black on the list and I had her as an 'item'.
Friday is the number 1 most annoying song on so many lists
Worst ever. Put something into your ears or she'll make you deaf. Can't strike the right note. Not even one.
BBHMM was jut repetitive words with no real tune. SHe used to actually sing
Hang on she did "work! " Ohmigosh she is like so not deserving of being here!
! Katy so shouldn't be here! Like she is the best pop star in the universe! And she has the most followers in twitter! My favourite song in the world is California gurls and I didn't spell girls wrong that is how she spells it in the song and my second favourite song is International smile! Katy Perry I defend you strongly!
One of the fakest artists ever. She got her big beak from singing gospel music and coming from a strict Christian background... Then 10 years later she comes out with highly inappropriate songs such as "I kissed A Girl" and showy, skimpy outfits including whip cream bras on stage. It's very
What is Katy doing on here!?! She is so the best ever my fave song in the world is California gurls! Whoever put her on here is very mad!
What she is greatV10 Comments
More like Five Seconds of Never. - RiverClanRocksV1 Comment
WORST. BAND. EVER. Cannot sing to save a infant's life. Can't really play any instruments (which they pretend to have the ability to), have no ability whatsoever to write music (Come on, get loud! Nananananananana! That was the lyrics to their most popular song! ) If that's not generic to you, I've given up on humanity. When you look at the crap that's passing off as music nowadays and compare it to the real stuff like Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Queen, Led Zeppelin, and AC/DC, you start to wonder why music is faltering. I know exactly why! The expectations of fans and studios everywhere is lowered because of autotune and computerized audio-editing. I could have never sung or played an instrument in my life and I could become a superstar in today's music industry.
Point here: R5 is awful. Please, I hope that talk about them breaking up wasn't just talk!
Why? Not Adele! Her voice and lyrics are very good. At least she puts some effort in what she does.
Overplayed and overrated as a singer and "songwriter. "
Wow. Not only is Adele in the list, but at #2? I've lost all hope in humanity now. - Mcgillacuddy
Whoever said she is overrated and overplayed, shut up. Adele is amazing. - SwellowV11 Comments
she is a terrible singer and obviously doesn't know what real music is, but come on! They put ABBA, Michael Jackson, and Eminem on here? WTF?
Anywhere from the lack of real instrumentation to her attempts at "singing" should place her at number one on this list.
Kesha is AUTOTUNED GARBAGE! All of her songs have this unnatural metallic beat and stupid lyrics with absolutely no meaning. I don't know who put that girl on the map and told her she was special, because she's just another dumb artist that doesn't know how horrible her voice sounds. Even with enhancements she sounds like R2D2!
A good example of fake musicV2 Comments
It's not like he wrote any of his own songs..
Drake is fake and cheesy as hell. I can't believe people eat his music up. He should have stayed in Degrassi!
