Top Ten Most Annoying Pop Artists of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claiming he was Part-Indian) and he is Christian. He is the son of an author, Pattie Mallet. more.

First of all this annoying chicky bastard is not ANY kind of musician! I am not into Pop music much but whenever I have to hear his girly voice (like when my stupid neighbor plays justin beaver songs in her home theatre) I just can't bear it. Urghh Bieber should be No. 1 no doubt!

JB needs to man up... He makes all these stupid comments and turns everything that is popular unpopular. He stole his moptop from the Beatles and isn't even as good! - MaxAttaxSportz

Pure ugh! His presence not only ruins pop but the whole music community itself.

He is the best ever

2 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

Words can not describe how much I absolutely loathe them. They are creepy and way overhyped for their actual talent level.

And fans of One Direction don't care how they look? That's a blatant lie. I'm a 13 year old girl who listens to what I think is pretty good music. The other day a girl at my school, who was a major One Direction fan, got into a conversation about music with me. She asked me if I would still listen to a band (I think the band we were talking about was Breaking Benjamin...) if the people in the band weren't attractive. I told her yes, I care more about the music than the looks. The guys from Breaking Benjamin could be really ugly for all I know, (I have no clue what they look like. I listen for the music, not the people) and I would still listen to them.

So, please Directioners, don't lie to us. We know you're in it for their "good looks" and I use that term loosely.

Go listen to real music please.

This is by far the worst band I have ever heard in my life! Mostly because their personalities are so disturbing and all of them sound exactly the same. I seriously have heard What Makes you Beautiful on the radio so many times... They play it at least once a day on every single station that plays popular music and they aren't even that cute or good at singing! And whenever I say that I hate them everybody looks at me like I just killed 7 people or something. But I've seriously seen pictures of them kissing each other on the lips... And it's either a really really really good edit or it's real.

They are ordinary singers, NOT a band... Everybody is like "ZOMGG DIRECTIONER! " and "I'M GONNA MARRY NIALL! " I don't get why everyone wants to marry them. After a girl won a sweepstakes to see One Direction, she ended up getting death threats from other fans. Really? Calm down, it's only a band with ordinary people like you. That proves the lack of maturity and self control this society has today. In addition, One Direction is just generally overrated and their songs all sound the same. They aren't any different from other mainstream artists. Listening to One Direction is the equivalent of having needles poked into your arm for an hour. Everywhere I go, I always have to hear them on the radio... It's pure torture. I wonder how long it took for them to ever get this far...

Justin Bieber and One Direction are ok. Enough hate. Also, the Nicki Minaj hate is stupid. She's a queen, and the haters do nothing. Cardi can be princess but nothing more

3 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching more.

I hate this bitch with every ounce of my being. I hate her delusional cult of followers and her vile childish reason level that is guaranteed in the majority of her songs. She is the epitome of a so-called "innocent" sweet little blonde Pennsylvanian bitch we like to trust in her; "Oh gee, this Taylor bitch doesn't smoke or swear or drink isn't she so innocent and cute? Don't we just all want to kiss her ranchy succubus ass? " As a matter of fact, I don't buy into her ex-bashing music written by a manipulative, lying sociopathic pop star with the mental ability of a 15 year old girl. We can all throw our money at this snob and claim her our of tuned average voice and 3-chord guitar skill gives her credibility but all it does is reflect that society rewards mediocrity these days. I have never despised someone as much as Taylor Swift in my life.

Katy perry was bullied at school. Michael Jackson got bashed at home. Everyone gets bullied at school. Do you really think any singer would Lose sleep at night over that anyway. People disrespected Michael Jackson cause he was black. Katy perry was bullied by her parents cause of her talent come on. Taylor swift hasn't. I hate Taylor swift and people need to learn about how she is behind closed doors. She is not that nice and sweet hearted as you think she is. Her face is so annoying. She looks like a five year old with boobs. I hate Taylor swift full stop the end of the story. If your really a fan look it up. - Hollybrewer

YES YES YES SHE IS SO OVERRATED. Her fangirls/boys act like she's so perfect and can't ever do any wrong, and if you say even the SLIGHTEST bit of criticism against her, they act like they want to kill you and say you're just jealous of how awesome she is. She's the most overrated thing since sliced bread and sings about boys way too much. I'm sure there are hundreds of people more talented than she is but they don't even get a thousandth of the attention. Incredibly overrated.

I thought Justin beiber is one who is most annoying but Taylor prove me wrong. Okay Taylor fill up the no1 position.You worth it.

4 Rebecca Black Rebecca Black Rebecca Black is a YouTube personality and singer who's infamous for her single "Friday," which was once the most disliked video on YouTube. She has also released other songs, including "My Moment" and "Saturday".

I hate justin bieber, but I find it strange that he's pretty much at the top of every single list where people vote for bad singers or bad music, and by so much- I'm talking 20-40% of the votes. Have you people even HEARD friday? A terrible singer singer a song she didn't even write but could have been written by a three year old.

I actually don't hate rebecca but since she's the least I like among the other 9, I vote her laugh out loud! But did you notice that these Top Ten artists are very very famous. Being a kpop fan, I can say they are famous since I know them

OK people, she had one song that went viral. ONE TERRIBLE SONG! That's it! Has anyone even heard from her since 5 fateful years ago?

Come on now, as horrendous as "Friday" was, she doesn't deserve 3rd place for one song. Should she even be considered a pop "artist"? Does one song (one that it is universally despised) make somebody a recording artist? Besides the girl was only 13. You can't really blame her. It was the producer who released "Friday" thinking it was a good idea. - theOpinionatedOne

She can't sing

5 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Cyrus is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Miley Cyrus's voice is contralto. She became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006. Her father Billy Ray Cyrus also starred in the show.

The girls voice sounds like a screechy dying cat! On top of that every time I hear her voice on the radio all I can think of is her big ugly teeth. I know that's really mean but so true :(

Miley not annoying she just crazy

Worst singer ever. Her voice is the worst sound I've ever heard. The beat in 6 FOOT 7 FOOT sounds better than her attempt to sing.

Used to be a big fan, before she whined all the time. Still like her, but she whines WAY to much - Chatsa2

Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. more.

Why aren't people voting for her!? Justin Bieber, One Direction and Rebecca Black despite of being as bad as they are. They are at least inoffensive and young. Whereas, she is...

People aren't voting for her because she is not a POP ARTIST! She's a rapper, but I her too

I can't stand this woman. She really believes she's all that, doesn't she? Well she should wake up from that dream of hers.

She is awful. the only songs that I sort of like is Super Bass and Starships. but some of the parts in those songs I hate.

She has zero talent and always looks confused. I don't understand why they have her as a judge for any talent competition, she's stupid, incompetent, and her hair always looks like a unicorn dumped on her head.

The Contenders

11 Lil' Wayne

His music is mainstream and is created to appeal to people with no taste in music, so he actually is a pop artist. Pop is more of a music group in which all the popular, overplayed songs fit into than an actual music genre. The word itself is a shortened form of the word, "popular".

Let's just get something straight. First, Lil' Wayne is not a popstar. And Second, He is not annoying, he's VERY annoying!

He's a rap artist! No matter how annoying he is, he's not a pop artist.

Just from see him playing on guitar I was hating him

12 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera, known professionally as Ariana Grande, is an American singer and actress . She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom, "Victorious". She later become a singer more.

Ariana. Don't even get me started on her. She DEFINITELY deserves to be in the top 5, at least. Ariana is a horrible singer, who is changing who she is. I, personally, liked Ariana when she wasn't popular or known very well. But now, since EVERYBODY knows her, she's changed for the worse. Her body, personality, the way she acts, the way she wants to act and her voice. She just makes me want to puke.

She just wants to show off and be all like "Look at me, I can hit the highest notes ever! ". Her voice sounds pretty impressive at first but when you listen to her songs for a second time, it gets pretty old. I don't get why people keep comparing her to Mariah Carey. Mariah is a legend, Ariana is a former Nickelodeon star that tries to make it in the music industry. That's a big difference.

Is an ugly cheater and awful singer

I can sing like her sometimes...her voice is good and she has an amazing vocal range, but I do see how some people could find Ariana annoying. - lovefrombadlands

REALLY? Drake should be a lower number!

I apsoulutely hate his voice. When he sings it sounds as if he just got up at 4 am in the morning and then started to sing. Plus on hotline bling, his dance moves are just what.

I actually met her once, and she seems like a awesome person! :D

Her song Hello Kitty is just a Ripoff of Japan. And the dancers in the background... She must have paid them a lot to do that.

I feel that she thinks too much of herself and tries too hard to look humble and modest. I also think she feels as though she thinks she is the best role model for all black women.

I think you are a classy lady and beautiful. You screwed up your image at Super Bowl 50. Come on Beyonce the world loves you regardless of you race and color. You can't do that kind of stuff on national television, you are a icon to many.

This horrific excuse for a human being who sold her soul to the devil should be #1 and should just stop making and make all our lives better.
