Top 10 Most Inappropriate Music Artists for Kids

These are the music artists you should NEVER, EVER let your kids listen to. Whenever the media tells you that Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj are appropriate for your kids, DON'T BELIEVE IT. I'm telling the truth. Don't even think about showing these people to your kids. You'll ruin their lives if you do.

The Top Ten

1 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe" . Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

Those two girls singing one of her songs on Ellen just made me speechless. Like, I was so shocked to see this happening. And people thought this was cute?!

Kids should NOT be listening to Nicki Minaj! She talks about sex, twerking, making it rain in the strip club, all of it. If you believe that crap the media tells you you're just as sick as this whole generation.

Wake up america! Wake the crap up! Get back to concerning about what your kids watch and listen to, and stop saying that artists like this are the most appropriate for your kids!

Nicki Minaj sucks. Have you even listened to Stupid Hoe? And for the media to say that artists like her are the most appropriate for your kids? It's scary as crap!

True and she was twerking in the song well music video mostly "Anaconda" and offensive to Anacondas (The snakes). Even her face has gone ugly. She says cuss words in EVERY single song. And America should never made a crossover with Jessie J., Ariana Grande, and HER singing in a TRIO. She should have been made for AGES 13 or MORE...

The only song I like by her is Anaconda.

-Killing
-Sex
And this band has Sexual and Gory album covers!

Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). ...read more.

What is this band doing on this lists? They are a great band! Their lyrics are meaningful and actually talk about real subjects people deal with and not fantacized sex broadcasted by today's pop artist. Anyone who still believes that rock musicians are a bad influence on kids is a blind parent who beleives nothing more than old stereotypes that have been proven wrong. Nicki Minaj, Myley Cyrus and others cuss as much and more than avenged Sevenfold. Science has proven that listening to aggressive music helps suicidal teens cope with these feelings. Rock music will live on forever and so will its stereotypes.

This band sings about many offensive things such as starting a war. Definitely not recommended for kids.

My opinion on Katy. I like some of her songs but some of her songs are very innapropriate songs. I think you need to be careful on which songs you listen to.

I am a Katy perry fan but some of her songs are very innapropriate for kids.
1) Peacock- This song is not talking about the bird.
2) Last Friday night (TGIF)- This song is talking about partying,get drunk being naked and having sex with 3 people is even mentioned.
3) your so gay- This song is bad. It even says penis at the end.
4) I kissed a girl- Not much to say "I kissed a girl and liked it". - Katy perry. It is your choice what you think of this song. Those are innapropriate Katy perry songs. I hope you enjoyed this and really get to know the music that your child could be listening to.

26 cupcakKe cupcakKe Elizabeth Eden Harris, better known by her stage name, cupcakKe, is a rapper, singer, and songwriter. She was born on May 31, 1997 in Chicago, United States. Although she is best known for her sexually explicit lyrics, cupcakKe was raised in a church and is still a devout Christian.

The only words in her vocabulary are cuss and sexual words. If you want to make a clean version of this song, then you might as well not because you'd have to censor everything. - Cartoonfan202

Best rapper since rap was invented. Regardless of her sexualised nature, she is feministic and her lyrics are often about being confident with the self, and are pro-homosexuality. She is an all rounded person and is my favourite rapper and favourite celebrity. But young children, stay in school.

Her songs aren't even good. - lovefrombadlands
