21 Michelle Obama Michelle Obama Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama is an American lawyer and writer. She is married to the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, and is the first African-American First Lady of the United States.
22 Raven Symone Raven Symone Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman, sometimes credited as Raven, is an American actress, singer, songwriter, television personality, and producer.

She isn't black she is biracial and that is the only reason she was on the Cosby show. Bill Cosby thinks he is white

I actually like her, but she needs to do more substantial acting roles instead of riding on the cotail of "That's So Raven." I have faith in you Rae.

23 Ludacris Ludacris Christopher Brian "Chris" Bridges, better known by his stage name Ludacris, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and actor.

Stupid,retarded,and steriotype are 3 things that some to mind when thinking about Ludacris.He has no flow and awful lyrics.Clearly one of the most overrated rappers of all time not even top 100 good.

Well, what can you say about a guy who refers to himself as "Luda"?

24 Taye Diggs

He's fine as hell. But his acting sucks, especially "Daybreak."

25 Vivica A. Fox Vivica A. Fox Vivica Anjanetta Fox is an American actress, producer and television host. She began her career with roles on the daytime television soap operas Days of Our Lives and Generations, subsequently shifting to the prime-time slot starring opposite Patti LaBelle, in the NBC sitcom Out All Night.

I like her, but I don't get it.

26 2pac 2pac Tupac Amaru Shakur, also known as 2Pac, was an American rapper and actor born on June 16, 1971 in East Harlem, New York. Tupac sold over 75 million records worldwide and has been referred to in multiple major publications such as Rolling Stone as one of the greatest music artists of all time. 2Pac was more.

He had one classic album, one good album, and 3 weak albums. His diehard fans don't know anything about hip-hop cause rakim and nas are way better. And he had the vocabulary of a 6 year old with down syndrome. The most overrated black celebrity of all time is Tupac Shakur.

Im a fan myself but best rapper of all time? I don't think so. Great rapper with a classic (me against the world)and some okay albums but at the end of the day if he didn't die he would never get Greatest of all time talk. - ChrisHenry

2pac was a pretty good rapper. He wasnt the greatest or even close to the greatest. I take Kool G Rap, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Nas, Jay-Z, Common, AZ, Scarface and about 30 others before I would get to 2pac. - Chris-1

The epitome of overrated, right here, buddy!

27 Young Jeezy Young Jeezy

I don't get him either. But oh well.

Boom, boom, clap! Haha!

Hasn't made a song in years. Yet & still she is on everyone's blog site. Like the old Whit. This new Whit doesn't tickle my fancy. But after dumping Bobby Brown, maybe she'll make a good comeback. Hell to the yeah!

How long has this comment been on this website? Whitney Houston passed. And she is an inspiation! Sure she did drugs but she had a beautiful voice!

Grating, tuneless, howling crack-skank. - unclejoe1917
