The Top Ten

King of Pop is definitely NOT a jerk

Yes, he may have been a child molester, but he also betrayed his friend, Paul McCartney by outbidding and buying the Beatles' title and earnings from him and Lennon.

“I think it’s dodgy to do something like that,” McCartney later admitted. “To be someone’s friend, and then buy the rug they’re standing on.”

He ain't a jerk

How is he not number!? The whole thing with Taylor Swift should have landed him at number 1. - TheStupidHobo

Kanye is the cancer of the entertainment industry. This is a man that the world would be better off without. He and his wife need to be banned from media, music, and being at awards shows.

What did michael jackson do?

A no talent self promoting media star. Go away.

He beat up Rihanna and turned into the new Ike Turner, he is a huge jerk. - lukestheman4

Ignoring the Rhianna event, the guy is just a piece of dirt who hasn't learned anything.

Rich guy who beats up chicks.

So Kanye and MICHAEL JACKSON are above him. He was the biggest jerk in entertainment history in 2009 when he beat up rihanna. But now he thinks beating up women is wrong, and beating up men is ok. Seriously is this person dumb or what - venomouskillingmachine

Axl rose just insists on being a douche to every single person he possibly can. PS Thom Yorke should be up near the top. He's pretty pretentious. - chriscg

Rose should definitely be higher than number four. He's an arrogant egotist who makes his money by suing people.

He managed to scare the other band members away

He's homophobic and insulted his fans - venomouskillingmachine

The person who made this list is an idiot again - venomouskillingmachine

7 Ted Nugent Ted Nugent

Ted Nugent is a racist redneck jackass who should never be allowed in front of a camera. He's a waste product and a pile of fecal matter.

This guy is funny to listen to. Quote "President Obama is a subhuman mongrel."

He is a douche-bag who refuses to learn when it is time to shut his trap. Much like his hero Donald Trump.

The biggest ass that ever existed in music history... period... end of story!

Arrogant, Narcissist and Manipulative

Right... so now you're going along with everyone by blaming him on that shooting?

Metallica kicked him out for having such an attitude. You know it was bad then, because they knew he was better than all of them combined.

I like dave mustaine and megadeth, but they probably wouldn't have been this famous if it wasn't for Metallica

Why do you think he was kicked out of Metallica?

What he is not
