How do you go from My Name is, which sounds like he's pinching his nose and on drugs, to pop crap love songs like Love the Way You Lie?!

Sold out big time. Artists like Lil Wayne and Rihanna should never, EVER touch Eminem.

It called adapting. Yeah Lil Wayne n rihanna are plain lucky even to be in the same album with Eminem. How can an artist be a sellout who has one of the largest fanbase in the planet. Don't get jealous nitwit.

Don't call him a sell out! He is not. Actually, he's gotten better and better.

A perfect example of this - giving up really good voice just to appeal to masses more. - saaarsdej

No she hasn't. Her latest album is her best yet. - Swellow

Actually, the exact opposite happened. "The Fame" was purely typical pop music of the 2000s. Catchy pop, but still pop. Then on "The Fame Monster" she started experimenting with darker atmosphere and lyrics, followed by avantgarde elements. Songs like "Scheiße" and "Government Hooker" from "Born This Way" are hardly mainstream. She recorded an artpop album, and a jazz album, has written and performed a song about sexual assault and her latest album is a nostalgic look at when pop music was not entirely made electronically. Actually, Lady Gaga started off as mainstream and evolved into something like a multimedia performance artist, but one that still cares if her music is still listenable and enjoyable. - Martin_Canine

Tom Delonge Grew Up. Blink is what it is. If you took the time to listen to Angels & Airwaves, you would appreciate what he has done for music

I agree with you. Angels And Airwaves is a good band, many people hate it just because it does not sound like Blink-182. - AnimeDrawer

he started out good with blink 182, but the frigged up BIG time with angels an airwaves

Tom Delonge grew up. Blink is what it is, catchy pop punk. If you took the time to listen to Angels & Airwaves you would appreciate what he is trying to do.

How is he a sell out? More like the opposite, when Blink-182 got a pop producer, John Feldmenn, who he could have become mainstream from that, Tom refused to. He wants to make music his own style and he loves doing it, not just for fame. A sellout is someone who would do anything to get more famous, Tom never got more famous than what he did in Blink-182. - AnimeDrawer

49 Shakira Shakira Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

50 Young Money Young Money

They were never good even in the beginning. They can go home and stay there forever. Nobody, and I mean nobody should remember them. EVER.

They're all auto-tune pop now... Well then again I'm not sure if they could even be called decent rap in the first place. - No

They should preform, To hear the beats booming would be awesome. Nicki Minaj could Starships, Lil Wayne A milli, Drake Make Me Proud..

56 Marilyn Manson

Just made a song with Gucci Mane two years ago. No wonder he's on this list.

He made a couple of bad songs, but he still releases good music, too. - RalphBob

O can't believe he was singing with Lady Gaga and Avril Lavigne. I hate to say this, but nothing lasts forever. I wish it did but it unfortunately doesn't.

57 Apecrime Apecrime ApeCrime is a German hip hop trio and YouTube comedy group consisting of Cengiz Dogrul, Andre Schiebler and Jan-Christoph Meyer that was formed in 2006. ...read more.

The awkward moment when a YouTube comedy trio that also made some light hearted comic music as a side project suddenly announce leaving YouTube and delete all their videos for releasing pseudo-sociocritical and pseudo-anti-commercial songs from now on just as German group that Adam landed a surprise hit with their seriously sociocritical album (the two vocalists of that Adam also had successful YouTube channels which they deleted, but they really wanted to quit)... and the even more awkward moment when the rip off is that obvious that even their fans turn against them and all of a sudden they re-upload all their videos and say sorry.

PS: Whoever edited my text in the first place... the band is written that Adam, not "that Adam". - Martin_Canine
