Good Music Artists Who are Terrible PeopleProPanda
The Contenders: Page 2
He has good sounding songs, but the lyrics in them are down right offensive! Listen to Nosy Neighbor and you'll see what I mean.
Beat his wife Whitney. - Swellow
Notorious for beating his wife Tina. What a lovely human being, I'm sure you'll agree. - Mrveteran
The drummer of Mayhem. He's a great drummer, but he's also a racist/homophobic prick. He even said in an interview that he honors another black metal drummer for killing a gay man. What a bastard!
His Modern Moran song was the best! But he hates modern Sonic fans.
Great producer and no doubt an important part of rap history. However, beating up a woman is utterly detestable, making him the Chris Brown of his day. - Mrveteran
What did he do? - AlphaQ
Great guitarist? Probably. But what a bloody hypocrite. Whinges about how awful capitalism is, all the while becoming rich through that system and happily indoctrinates his impressionable fans to such a dangerous ideology. Not to mention how his lineage is full of corrupt politicians (mainly former Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta) makes him even more of a hypocrite. - Mrveteran
Been controversial for many years now. This includes:
Had beef with musicians like Amy Winehouse, Bob Geldof, Kylie Minogue among many others.
Attacked a photographer in 2007.
Had controversial music videos, mainly seen with the 2013 one for her song Hard Out Here which was accused of racism.
Patronised the British public by apologising on their behalf for the 'refugees' at the migrant camp in Calais despite herself not taking any in into her £6 million house.
After the tragic attack at an Instanbul nightclub earlier this year which left nearly 40 dead and many others injured, her immediate response showed more concern over the fact that the press referred to the killer as a migrant over those who were affected. How lovely.
Considering such incidents, it's hard to see how she isn't a terrible person, despite being a good musician... in her early days at least. - Mrveteran
Hired a hitman to kill his wife. Need I say more? - Mrveteran
Why her? - Mrveteran
While already smug and arrogant, his main crime is how he gave all of the Live Aid and Band Aid charity money to the dictator Mengistu who used his new finances to buy Russian weaponry and effectively crush his opposition. Not to mention how Geldof was warned by multiple charities to not go ahead with the concert until they had the proper channels ready to help the people, and he just ignored them, leaving many impoverished as a result. The fact that he knowingly did this, while still claiming to be a 'man of the people' makes me utterly sick. - Mrveteran
Drummer of Emperor who killed a gay person for fun. - Mrveteran
So badly behaved was Mustaine that he got kicked out of his first band, has essentially a revolving door where bandmates are concerned (clearly not being able to form good relationships in that regard), refused to perform with certain bands for religious reasons, has endless feuds with other musicians and even claimed that recent shootings in America at that time were false flag operations to push gun control. Still somewhat likable though, and a fantastic musician nonetheless. - Mrveteran
Former Iron Maiden signer. Convicted on 8 counts of benefit fraud as well as being banned from America for his bad behaviour including the domestic abuse of his then American girlfriend. - Mrveteran
