The Top Ten

Cardi B Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and former stripper.

Cardi B's the biggest wannabe rapper of all time. She's a huge rip-off of Nicki Minaj. Cardi B's rapping isn't original at all. Her voice is also much more cringy than Nicki Minaj's. Even Iggy Azalea can rap better than Cardi B. Also, Cardi B's songs are much worse than Nicki Minaj's songs. Her music if far from being unique and original. All Cardi B cares about is fame and nothing else.

She's such a mindless annoying rat who wants more attention & doesn't put enough effort into music. She's wannabe/poser.

This band isn't even real music. They're some of the biggest posers of all time. They look like clowns trying to be as emo as possible. All they do is whine because they got exposed for being a bunch of rapists and awful people. Their singing's really fake. They abuse the autotune to the max. Their songs are either about sex or whining about their lives. They might look tough and scary, but their music is just some Crunkcore and Techno junk that most people don't care about. They're huge posers and they can't even sing without autotune.

Now, when I think of it, they should be at number 1. They're horrible and they're some of the biggest posers of all time.

To be honest, I should have put them higher than Imagine Dragons.

Ugly people who dress like scene kids and make ear rape music. Their lyrics are dumb and they abuse autotune. What a bunch of degenerates, because that’s what they are.

She sounds similar to Kylie Minogue, to be honest. Her songs are pretty close to the ones by Kylie. Miley Cyrus sounds like a wannabe of Kylie Minogue and Madonna, combined. Miley tried way too hard with her songs. Her music is filled with autotune, as well. Her songs are so unoriginal. Her songs are extremely inappropriate, especially her most recent songs. She also can't sing at all. She's also giving pop a very bad name. She's one of the biggest wannabe singers of the 2010s.

I honestly agree with this she tries too hard to be Alternative or Indie Rock when she's Indie Pop at most.

Yess! She is the biggest poser ik

Billie Eilish Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell, known professionally as Billie Eilish (born December 18, 2001) is an American singer and songwriter, best known for her songs "When the Party's Over", "Bury a Friend" and especially "Bad Guy".

Is this list intended to be exclusively negative? Because I like her music but I can actually understand why she could be considered a poser given that her persona that is displayed in her music is very different from her real personality.

‘’Reinvented pop’’ she did nothing what so ever to pop. She is, at best, a one off (thank god) whisperer with decent success who ripped of bjork

Ashlee Simpson Ashley Nicolle Næss, known by the stage name Ashlee Simpson, is an American singer-songwriter, actress, and media personality.
Blake Shelton Blake Tollison Shelton is an American country singer and television personality. In 2001, he made his debut with the single "Austin".

He's such a terrible country singer. He's my most hated country singer of all time.

Blink-182 Blink-182 are a Pop Punk band formed in 1992. Original lineup were Mark Hoppus (Bass Guitar, Vocals) ...read more.

These emos tried way too hard with their music. Their music is far from being a good punk band, yet some people call them punk. They have some of the most unoriginal and whiny songs of all time. They can't even play with their music instruments, properly. Tom DeLonge's also a terrible singer who's constantly whining, non-stop. Their music is extremely far from being unique and original. It's not even real punk music, it's either emo or pop punk, at best. The only thing that the members of Blink-182 really care about is their money and their fame, they don't care about their music nor their fans. Out of all the pop punk bands, Blink-182 is definitely one of the biggest poser bands of all time.

5 Seconds of Summer 5 Seconds of Summer are an Australian pop-rock band from Sydney, Australia, that formed in 2011. The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012.

They sound like most other boy bands to me.

Machine Gun Kelly Colson Baker, better known by his stage names MGK and Machine Gun Kelly, is an American rapper and actor, from Cleveland, Ohio.
Boys Like Girls Boys Like Girls is an American pop rock band from Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in 2005, the group gained mainstream recognition when it released its self-titled debut album.

They're some massive posers, in the music industry. They're not even pop punk, at all. They're more pop rock, pop or power pop at best. Their songs aren't even nearly heavy enough to be called pop punk. Boys Like Girls is also one of the whiniest bands of all time. Their vocals are also extremely whiny.

I bet all these boys are gay to be honest

Charli XCX Charlotte Emma Aitchison, better known by her stage name Charli XCX, is an English singer and songwriter. Her most famous songs include Boom Clap and her feature on Iggy Azalea's Fancy.

Hinder Hinder is an American rock band from Oklahoma that was formed in 2001 by drummer Cody Hanson, lead singer Austin Winkler and guitarist Joe "Blower" Garvey.

Hinder may not be that bad of a band, but it's a wannabe music artist. They sound like a rip-off version of Nickelback. They also got somewhat famous with their song "Lips of an Angel." It's not that bad of a song, but it sounds like a rip-off of Nickelback. It's also a much more obscure band than Nickelback. Hinder's less post-grunge and it's more alternative rock, as well.

To be honest, I find them extremely whiny. I used to like them, but now I don't. They're mediocre at best.
