Top 10 Dumbest Stereotypes About Modern Singers

Swellow
These are easily the stupidest stereotypes I've seen on modern singers...

The Top Ten

1 They're only famous for their looks

The only person I know who's famous for their looks is Kim Kardashian who doesn't even sing. - AlphaQ

This isn't always true. - AnonymousChick

Even most of the artists that are acused of doing this are famous for other reasons too. - Martinglez

2 They only sing pop and rap music

I could go on about the literal millions of other genres being toyed with to this day, but even with that, Kesha did an experimental synth-rock album in 2012, Lady Gaga just dropped a folk-rock album, and Miley Cyrus dropped a psychedelic pop-rock album last year...to disastrous results for the last. - WonkeyDude98

So...? Rap and pop are awesome. - AlphaQ

Well most artists do.But there are some great rock and metal artists also.But I like Indie Rock most from the 2010s. - zxm

The thing I don't like about modern music judgement is that most of the pop singers are famous.If you search for best singers of 2010s on the google then you could see that most of them are pop singers.And singers like Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj are also there.But its not always true that there aren't any other genres of singers in modern music.There are but they are very underrated. - zxm

3 All their music is overplayed on the radio

Not all, just most of it. - Britgirl

There's a thing called Kerang!, people, which has had the same playlist for about a decade now. - Swellow

I like songs of Brian Fallon,Passenger,Phillips Phillips they aren't overplayed - zxm

4 They only ever use autotune/pitch shifting

Not only is this not true, but it's not even bad if they do, as long as they're using it for artistic effect. If they're just covering up bad vocals, then sure, they suck. But sometimes it's used simply because it fits with the song. - Zach808

Every singer uses autotune in their albums and songs. (the amount depends on voice quality, but still)

Some artists like Kanye West and Nicki Minaj sound better with autotune. - AlphaQ

Good modern singers sometimes get discredit for not using auto tune.Example I saw one comment that Passenger's voice is awful,he can't sing,he is annoying blah blah... so it would be better if he used autotune? I don't think he has that bad kind of voice - zxm

5 They are nothing compared to *insert cult classic musician here*

This item is correct. They ARE nothing compared to The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and for that matter, Frank Sinatra. The most popular artists since 2010 are Adele and Taylor Swift, both of whom are pretty good, but I rest my case.

The fun thing is that back then people said the same thing about popular artists of that decade. Over the years, their reputation got better and their status grew bigger. The same will happen with the 2010s as well. - Martin_Canine

Any modern pop/rap artist can demolish Dread Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix or Stinkin Park. - AlphaQ

Of course they are better than lame 70s musicans. Gee, these nostalgiatards are getting annoyin to the point of banging my head on this iPhone 7. - AlphaQ

6 They are cruel people and only care about money

*cough* Disturbed *cough* - WonkeyDude98

Dystopia...*cough cough* - AlphaQ

7 They are always overproduced and not real

St Anger, Dystopia? Anyone? - AlphaQ

St. Anger was more overproduced than the majority of pop. - WonkeyDude98

8 They don't care about their fans

Taylor has shown to be very nice to her fans, for example. - Martinglez

No, in fact most of them do. - AlphaQ

People like Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift or Nicki Minaj, even if they don't appeal to a lot of people, still care deeply about their fanbases. - Swellow

This is wrong. Even someone of the LAMEST singers like Fifth Harmony, Nicki Minaj and even Rae Sremmurd all care about their fans. - AlphaQ

9 They never change their style

Some of them do. - AlphaQ

10 They always sing about sex, drugs and parties

I think I added this. How many damn times have I seen a person on the site complaining about how pop/rap is nothing but parties, sex and drugs? ALMOST every time. I'm getting so damn sick and tired of this bullcrap being told around the world cause I know it's not true (Kendrick Lamar). - AlphaQ

The Contenders

11 They all have plastic surgery/botox/makeup/fake/a non-natural body

Inner beauty is natural beauty. - Britgirl

There is no such thing as "natural beauty". - Swellow

NaH. - AlphaQ
