The Top Ten

I legitimately forgot about the guy till I saw this list, so yeah. - cjWriter1997

Bad one-hit wonder whose one hit was utter trash even when it came out. Utterly irrelevant beyond being a snapshot of our vacuous culture at the time. If I was Tim-Bernes Lee and saw that my creation would lead to this doofus getting popular, I would have thrown in the towel already. - Mrveteran

He's stayed enough of his popularity, he's now backtracked to standard once again but he's making another song this year - Neonco31

She still has a career? Am I living in the Twilight Zone? - Mrveteran

Haven't heard much of anything from Britney these days, have you?

Actually, she's kind of not. I keep seeing her on those celebrity news sites. Apparently, her neice had a disease (cancer of something to do with her heart, I don't know), and she's dating this Australian bodybuilder.
She's also been in/still is in some beef with Taylor Swift (I forgot who the exact celeb was) and they're fighting about/over something, and Britney used a Bible quote over Twitter to respond the the female celeb's comments.
Dang! Celeb news can be confusing! - BlueTopazIceVanilla

THE BLACK EYED PEAS ARE NOT IRRELEVANT!
Songs like, Boom boom pow, I gotta feeling, rock, the time, love you long time, pump it (amazing song), don't lie, oh my gosh, where is the love, hands up, it's a holiday, lets get it started, shut up, hey mama, falling up, joints and jam, karma and MANY MANY MANY MORE AMAZING SONGS!
