Top Ten Music Artists With Worst Personalities

The Top Ten

1 Kanye West Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching ...read more.

Why the hell is Bruno Mars up there? This guy is offensive, he tried to call himself the black jesus. Bastard

Kanye isn't the smartest of the bunch but I always get a laugh with him. Without him I'm not sure who would make me laugh in award shows. No offense Kanye but your stupid. In a funny way. - happyhappyjoyjoy

He calls himself a god, calls himself Black Jesus, insulted Bruno Mars publicly who didn't do anything, is too sensitive about race, says George Bush hates black people and he insulted Taylor Swift. He's a decent rapper though. - AlphaQ

I think his music is pretty good. He has a way of producing that no other artist has. BUT one problem is his personality. This man has the ego larger than out galaxy. He claims to be some sort of god when it comes to rapping, just music in general. Also, let's not forget the time he interrupted Taylor Swift at the VMA's on 2009. Now I will say that Beyoncé did deserve it. But that doesn't mean that you should go up on a stage, steal the mic, and try to basically STEAL an award from a person. - fitemeillreku

2 Chris Brown Chris Brown Christopher Maurice "Chris" Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor. Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in ...read more.

In all fairness the guy has been abusive to Rihanna in the past and put her into a hospital bed. A few years later punched a man with last name "Adams". After the grammy's award, he did not show remorse for any of it either. I'm surprised he isn't number one on this list.

Should be next to Kanye West as #2. Blurgh. He literally battered Rihanna into needing desperate medical care (also had a tattoo looking uncomfortably similar to Rihanna's beaten face), then battered a man a couple years later. Did not even try to make at least an empty promise to improve. At least Bieber's tried.

This makes his boasting and women hating in his music look much worse. At least Bieber doesn't talk about how awful his fans are and how much money he makes in his music. - WonkeyDude98

What he should be number 1 he is a woman beater. ain't know one on this list done something as bad as that

Beaten Rihanna really badly and didn't even try to apologize. At least Justin Bieber tried to publicly apologize. - AlphaQ

3 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe" . Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

Nicki Minaj. My least favourite person in the world, I am proud to say. - PositronWildhawk

She is an offense to music in every shape and form. - PositronWildhawk

@PositronWildhawk Listen to Stimulated by Tyga. It would be your new worst song. - AlphaQ

That girl has no talent or anything at all, she can only be a perfect pornstar at bed - AbdRahmanSalah

She hasn't been mean to anyone yet. She hasn't spat on her fans or called them names so I disagree. - AlphaQ

4 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.

She can't admit that her publicity stunts are just her way of trying to still be relevant (though her relevance has waned long ago). She claims that her crazy stunts are intended to call attention for her causes but only paint a negative picture for herself and her cause.

She could be a better singer if she puts all passion in her voice more than her lyrics I like her's music. She is not the worst singer. But she needs to work more on her lyrics and song then music

She tries way too hard to prove that she's not a little girl anymore. WE GET IT Cyrus! YOU'RE ALL GROWN UP! STOP! JUST STOP!

R u pornstar or a singer?

He is known as the frontman of the one-man band Burzum (named after a word in the Black Speech, which is a fictional language in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord ...read more.

This guy easily has the worst personality here, like no one above has truly killed someone, only this guy has killed anyone, so according to the list I would totally say that this Black Metal guy has the worst personality. - DJSchollen

This guy killed someone and is a literal white supremacist. Why people consider Justin Bieber a "terrible person" when people like Varg exist is beyond me. - Swellow

Well, he LITERALLY KILLED SOMEONE, and I think he was basically "feeling cool" the worst way possible, even worse than how Justin Bieber was "feeling cool".

He killed Euronymous because he was out to kill him. Do your research before judging a person. - RalphBob

So bad he's on here twice!

He's on here twice. I would joke and say that's how bad he is, but the #1 does have a typo. - WonkeyDude98

So bad that we have to vote twice, there should be a third. If Justin's reatding this than your an idiot Justin

He spits on fans and pisses in mop buckets. He's on here twice for some reason. Look I'm not tryna defend JB but he isn't such a terrible singer.

He's a decent singer with a bad personality. *shjts* - AlphaQ

7 Lil Wayne Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American hip hop "artist" and is often referred to as one of the worst "rappers" of all time. He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age. He has been critically acclaimed and even more panned throughout his career. He's often criticized for talking ...read more.

He talks about so much money, sex and drugs that it's not only destroying hip hop, but it's also destroying his humanity. I hope one day that he'll wake up and realize what an animal he's truly become.

At least 2Pac had meaningful lyrics in some of his songs. All Lil Wayne ever talks about is drugs, money, women, sex, getting high on weed.
This guy glorifies doing trouble and getting arrested.

This guy has some of the worst lyrics I have ever heard, "weezy f baby and the f is for phenomenal," ARE YOU 4 REAL! This guy is also one of the biggest abusers of auto tune. How can anybody take this guy seriously?

8 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 ...read more.

She seems like a really difficult person to be around. - keycha1n

It looks like her 15 minutes of fame are up

She went a downhill really quickly

She is a decent singer but damn she is RUDE. Very Rude to her fans. She yells at them and stuff. - AlphaQ

10 Kesha Kesha Kesha (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America

DON'T KNOW WHY SHE'S ON HERE?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! She is a dumbass, auto-tune doe's all the work for her, she is a filthy girl, and all she "sings" about is getting drunk! She doesn't even sing, she talks like a drunk dingbat and auto-tune doe's the work for her! All of her fan are some lousy teenagers, who don't know what real music is. OPEN YOUR EYES, SHE'S NOT ACUALLY SINGING! A total disgrace to music...

As an artist, she is awful. As a person, she's still pretty bad (inhumanly unsanitary, for one). But personality? She's admittedly not that bad. She just doesn't know what satire is, making her look worse when she parodies bad pop. - WonkeyDude98

I used to keep track of how many songs she has. Now I've stopped, they are annoying and only about getting drunk.

She is actually one of the strongest, sweetest, and most genuine pop stars in the industry. Don't know why people hate her.

The Contenders

11 Carrie Underwood Carrie Underwood

Never read a good thing about meeting her, ever.

The way she treats normal people is just awful. She yells at workers, treats younger and older fans like trash and couldn't care less about it, very demanding and manipulative, also hurls racial slurs at people of a different ethnicity, etc. She is a complete monster and I hope people never respect her. We do not need these type of people in the world

12 Axl Rose Axl Rose William Bruce Rose Jr., better known as 'Axl Rose', is an American singer born on February 6, 1962, in Lafayette, Indiana. He Is the founder and lead singer of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses. He is a celebrated but controversial figure in the world of rock.

Axl Rose has a great singing voice and all, but he's got anger issues and is somewhat arrogant. There have actually been times where he has jumped off the stage and beat people up over something stupid and then left the concert- waste of people's money. And I have heard that there was one time where he didn't want the rest of the band performing because he had a problem with his throat. Guy needs anger management.

This dickhead is number 1.

Axl Rose is the worst person in the world. Because her voice is like a little girl and he is a racist. Dangerously and annoying guy. Her face is so annoying and boring. I hate her so much. Most annoying thing ever.

Dear Axl Rose,

Please die and don't return them. Go to hell!

Great voice but does the guy have to be such a -CENSORED- - FactKnower

He's a talented singer but a bit of a douche - bobbythebrony

13 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 ...read more.

She is so whiny and needy. She needs a guy in her life to prove her that she is good. I think her personality is the worst because to me, she's a hypocrite. She is like "I'm so perfect, blonde and tall, I'm the only sane singer and I don't do drugs, I'm so perfect". She passes the wrong messages to her fans, who are young girls that are actually inspired by her.

All of her songs are bad revenge ballads. She dates famous people with the intent of breaking up with them and writing a revenge ballad.

Even though she's america's idol, I don't give a damn about her. - AbdRahmanSalah

Um. Why is Taylor Swift here? I said it once and I'll say it again: unless you're Chris Brown, personality in music virtually always =/= actual personality. - WonkeyDude98

He is dead now!

15 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sing in alto.

She is selfish, untalented, jealous, stupid and have a worst personality ever.

She was girlfriend of Bieber, that explain how stupid she is!

Why is she on the list? She has one of the best personnalities!

16 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

She's a whiny wannabe ghetto diva who has 10 other people write crap rap lyrics for her. Also she doesn't freestyle, and doesn't have a popular song without someone else insanely popular featured in it. No one knew her before that song "Problem" with Ariana Grande

17 Gary Glitter Gary Glitter Gary Glitter is a former glam rock singer and songwriter. He sold over 20 million records and regained media attention in 1999 when child pornography were found on his laptop and committed sex offences with children. He was sentenced to 17 years in prison in 2015. V 1 Comment
18 Harry Styles Harry Styles Harry Edward Styles is an English singer and song writer, known as a member of the boy band One Direction .

He can't sing, he is only famous for looks, his hair looks like a mop-head and he thinks his band are better than The Beatles!

Only famous for his looks.

I know where you are coming off of but I would rather hear royal person try to sing than to listen to best song ever

I will never get the One Direction hate, especially on this list considering they seem to be genuinely nice kids. - WonkeyDude98

20 Katy Perry Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (Katy Perry) was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. Katy Perry is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. ...read more.

Katy Perry is a fantastic person. The only person on this whole list that even deserves to be here is JB. Did you even read the question? Unjust because you don't like someone's music doesn't mean they have a bad personality.

Katy perry and Ariana Grande need to switch places

This is stupid. Katy is really nice and sweet. What's even stupider is that ARIANA GRANDE IS UNDER HER - AnonymousChick

ROFL! Katy is one of the most down-to-earth artist out there. She always makes fun of herself, is goofy, cute, thankful and loves her fans.

Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath ...read more.

How is Ozzy one of the worst? He has great music, he's one of the most influential musicians in the music industry, and I have never seen anything bad about his personality.

Just because he's done more drugs than a third world country doesn't mean he's bad - bobbythebrony

I still doubt to this day he's ever eaten a bat's head off. I still doubt. - Swellow

23 Bruno Mars Bruno Mars Peter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer.

Why this man is here. He has a good personalities

He lost his dignity after doing songs like Bubble Butt and Young, Wild & Free.

His music is bland, generic, and boring. - RiverClanRocks

I disagree with whoever added her to this list. She is actually very nice to her fans.

Anyone who says she copies Madonna can fall off a bridge. She is a lovely lady. - Swellow

She loves her fans like best friends.

He's an incredible artist, but not a great person.

Depends if you're talking about his new or old songs. His old songs were terrific, but his new ones are horrible. He's a sellout now. - Alpha101

After the song "Kim", I lost any respect I had for him. Knowing the people on this site, I'll be disliked to hell, but whatever. He's a bad person for the things he says about Kim and I don't like him.

I mean I hate Kim, but I don't think it is relevant to his behavior, nor does it overshadow stuff like Lose Yourself. - WonkeyDude98

29 John Lennon John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

A lot of people think he was a good role model but he really wasn't. He would take large amounts of LSD, beat his wife, and even donate money to a terrorist organization.

39 Amy Lee Amy Lee Amy Lynn Hartzler, known professionally as Amy Lee, is an American singer-songwriter, classically trained pianist and composer. She is also the lead singer to the Arkansas band Evanescence.

Are you for real? Amy Lee? She is one of the sweetest people in the world. The reason that the band changes so often is either because of things out of their control (I.E. The one who had a heart condition or who wanted to stay with his family), or because they quit. She hasn't done anything to anyone, and I truly cannot understand why she's on this list.

ARE YOU SERİOUS? What The Hell? Amy is not bad. Take off the list.
My Favorite Singer. She is not bad. Okay?
Are you really serious? I do not understand, why people hated Amy? Come on man, she is the best, she is not annoying. She is helpful, sweety, pretty and very so beautiful.
NO! NO! NO! Take off the list. She is the best.
Amy is never drunk, never, never, NEVER!
Best female singer, FOREVER!
I love you Amy, you not a drunk, Amy is my favorite female singer, my life, my heart.
She is the best. Amy forever!

She is possibly the biggest POSER in music-business.

This bitch needs to be at least in the top 5.

She kicks everyone out "her" band if they don't want to bow down to her.

She lets her fans wait in the rain outside the hall for hours and only lets those in the vip lounge who pay 100$ to see her fake friendly attitude for 5 minutes.

She is an alcoholic herself, and publishes a song about her ex boyfriend being an alcoholic. She makes fun of pop-singers while she is a pop singer herself. Just listen to her latest album. PLUS her voice is always autotuned - when it comes to life-singing she struggles so hard that you might think she's giving birth to triplings. I hate this arrogant, self possessed, money-crazed bitch.

WHY is she so low on this list? Even if people might like her music, they

Got to accept the fact she has a NASTY personality.

Personal experience: I've been at a concert with a friend who used to be obsessed with this emo's band. So we went backstage because my friend had backstage passes like a few others. And like 20 people waited outside the hall in the cold for her for like an hour, they didn't know they had to buy backstage passes for 70$.

After she noticed that she told the security, rolling her eyes, to tell them she's not interested in going outside to meet them. She's nothing but a money-crazed bitch with no other goal than being rich and famous. Terrible person, we were shocked at her behavior.

All those teenies who idolize her fake attitude should grow up.

What do u expect from someone who only writes songs to bash her ex boyfriends.

Not to mention that she was one of the biggest hoes before she got married to a fool. Even 50cent ...more
