Beats women, He is hopeless in music as well as a human. - Ananya

2 Yoko Ono Yoko Ono Yoko Ono is a Japanese multimedia artist, singer, songwriter, and peace activist who is also known for her work in performance art, music, and filmmaking.

The only people who don't hate her for her music are your avid Beatles fangirls. To me, her music is about as "experimental" or "surrealistic" as me knocking or ringing a doorbell. - Swellow

Trust me. It's for her "music." Her gawdawful, cackling, shrieking, nails-on-the-blackboard "music."

3 Courtney Love Courtney Love Courtney Michelle Love is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and visual artist. A notable figure in the punk and grunge scenes of the 1990s, Love's career has spanned four decades.

She's mainly hated for overdosing infront of her own daughter and being a douche to Kurt Cobain before he shot himself. Along with the way she has disrespected Kurt even after he died. Yeah I don't need to go on with this.

10 Michael Jackson Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under ...read more.

The last fifteen to twenty years of his life, Michael Jackson was constantly bashed by media and the crowd alike. Whether it was false accusations of child abuse (really, google the two court cases. The stories of the "witnesses" were contradicting each other.), his plastic surgery or whatever else he did - before his death every single step he made was made fun of and the whole world joyfully observed his lengthy, painful downfall. It was not until his death that people reconsidered their behavior and opinion of him, when they realized how serious all of this really was. Now, he's a legend, and rightfully so, but his life was one of misery and deep emotional pain - from back when he was a child up to his final day. - Martin_Canine

13 Jimmy Page Jimmy Page James Patrick Page is an English musician, songwriter, and record producer who achieved international success as the guitarist and founder of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

His penchant for underage girls is pretty shocking.

15 Adam Levine Adam Levine Adam Noah Levine is an American singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5. ...read more.

She is also a well-known member of the 27 Club, as she overdosed on alcohol at age 27.

It's an uncomfortable truth that before she actually died many people made fun of her and her addiction to cocaine and alcohol, and despite her critical acclaim regarded her as just another attention whore.
That is, until she died. After her death, the same people spoke of her as a music legend and of her life as tragic. - Martin_Canine

17 Billy Corgan Billy Corgan William Patrick "Billy" Corgan Jr. is an American musician, songwriter, producer, television writer, poet, and professional wrestling promoter best known as the lead singer, guitarist, and sole permanent member of The Smashing Pumpkins.

18 Ted Nugent Ted Nugent Theodore Anthony "Ted" Nugent is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist and far right activist. Nugent initially gained fame as the lead guitarist of the Amboy Dukes, a band formed in 1963 that played psychedelic rock and hard rock.

I have never heard of this guy before. Then I googled him.
Afterwards, I sat in my room for quite some time, just starring at the wall. I took a deep breath in, and then out again. I looked up to the ceiling, then down to the floor. More time passed, me still in the very same position. After exactly 21 minutes, I finally stood up, my legs partly numb from not moving. After they gained their strength back, I walked towards my window and quickly put the curtains aside. Then I stopped, and took another deep breath. I opened up the window - and put one foot on the sill. I was ready.

But then... it occured to me. One day, he will probably not be able to hold his temper... be imprisoned... and will probably land in a cell together with a bunch of gay foreigners. And that thought made me smile brightly. I closed the window and happily tip toed throughout all of the room.

Excuse me, now I'm gonna listen to Die Ärzte to wash his nonsense out of my brain. - Martin_Canine
