Top 10 Most Hated Music Artists

The Top Ten
1 Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette.

Justin Bieber is best known for his songs "Baby" and "What Do You Mean". He currently has seven videos that exceed 1 billion views on YouTube, which are "Baby", "What Do You Mean?", "Sorry", "Love Yourself",... read more

I hate him so much! He acts as if he is the hottest, coolest guy in the world when he really isn't. He cannot sing at all nor dance. His attitude towards his fans and others in general is really appalling, disgusting, and revolting. Spitting at them, criticizing their appearances (umm maybe look at yourself), and just plain rude behavior. I do not understand why he is considered an amazing artist. I mean, really?

If one day I could meet the guy, I would surely bring one of his CD albums and a marker. I'd show up and break the CD in front of him, take the marker and write "loser" or "gay" on his face while he's bewildered. Then, I'd spew out my spit on his shocked, vandalized ugliness as I basked in glory with all Justin Bieber fans hitting me. Totally worth it though (with phlegm if possible).

What else could happen when the number of views on YouTube replaces the qualification process? Teenage girls can enormously increase the view count. Easily, an underage boy becomes famous in one night, and most unknown, talented musicians are still waiting to be discovered.

2 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 after forming and finishing third in the seventh series of the British televised singing competition... read more

Look. I'm a guy, and I don't hate Bieber much. But yes, he is annoying. But people, One Direction? They are musicians? That itself is a joke. They don't write their own lyrics. Ed Sheeran does that. Half of the fangirls or boys don't know him. They don't play their own instruments too! So, no talent. And they autotune their voices. Where is the talent? Fine, they look good. Agreed. So be models, why singers and destroy music? Besides this malnourished homophiliated group, I hate Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne.

Eminem is my idol. I'm not a fanboy. But dude, you can't hate him. His songs are like milestones. Endless talent, flow, lyrics, sense of humor, rhymes. Stan, Lose Yourself, The Way I Am, Sing for the Moment, Cleaning Out My Closet, Without Me, etc., are classics. His new stuff isn't as great as the old, but it's still amazing.

One D - a bunch of douches who don't write their songs, play their instruments… Heck, they don't even write their own songs! And still, some crazy people listen to them. I mean, what happened to Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Guns N' Roses...

3 Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang".

Despite her controversial songs, Brent Staples from "The New York Times" claimed her to be 'the most influential female rapper of all time', presumably... read more

I don't dislike her because of her looks, but because of what a music artist should be good at - singing. She, along with Rebecca Black, has a high, irritating voice, which ruins the very average songs she has.

I was watching this parody of "Anaconda," and it was so true! It said, "95% of her is fake." That is so true. She does such dirty songs not appropriate for kids watching YouTube, and "Anaconda" just pops up on their screen. HORRIBLE!

There are a lot of bad singers here, but I chose this brainless, skanky, fake moron because of her stupid songs, stupid lyrics, and crazy videos. Ugh, she scares me!

4 Kanye West Ye (born Kanye Omari West; June 8, 1977) is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer and fashion designer. He is regarded as one of the most influential, as well as controversial, artists of the 21st century.

Born in Atlanta and raised in Chicago, West initially gained recognition as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records in the early 2000s, producing singles for several artists and developing... read more

How could you not hate him? He compares himself to Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison. Okay, sure, just classic stupid Kanye. But then he just says he likes Hitler. That is a clear sign of someone being a piece of crap.

It should be against the law to be a Kanye West fan because most of his fans are violent. They start riots and injure law-abiding citizens.

Racist junkie: What, I can't listen to Kanye West?

The worst thing you can say about an artist is "he used to be good". And he was. But no more. Seems that fame and fortune sucked all his talent and left only an arrogant "used to be good" person.

5 Rebecca Black Rebecca Black is a YouTube personality and singer who's infamous for her 2011 single "Friday," which was the most disliked video on YouTube until "Baby" by Justin Bieber became the most disliked video in 2012. She has also released other songs, including "My Moment" and "Saturday".

Much like how Bieber had his Baby Baby song... she has her Friday Friday song. Both of them are equally horrible in my opinion. Oh boy... just imagine Rebecca Black and Justin Bieber having a kid... it would be the end of the music industry altogether.

She looks so weird, and all she does is use auto-tune. Her music is terrible, which is why you never hear it on the radio. I didn't even know who she was - had to look her up and listen to some of her songs. Hated them.

Ugh. She uses way too much autotune. The only thing that's worse than her is Double Take. Where are they on this list? They deserve to be here too.

6 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter.

She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing personal songs and for having won 11 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old, and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin a country music career. She... read more

I hate her so much that I can't even stand her music playing in public! She's a damn annoying and selfish singer. I used to like her when I was a kid, but later I realized how false the fan life I was living in was. If you want to abuse your exes, then why don't you go by yourself to their doorstep and talk straight to them? Why the heck do you just publicly insult everyone? Go get a REAL life, Taylor!

She's a nightmare dressed like a daydream. People think she's this perfect angel...HA! Angel my ass! All her music is about her exes and putting guys down when her whole image is about "girl power" and "equality". Well then, how about actually teaching her fans that instead of making these sexist songs, driving her fans to looney town!

I'm sure she's sweet and all, but I have one word for that: BORING. Lots of people donate to charity, lots of celebs care about their fans. YOU ain't SPECIAL! She makes it public and makes people love her. Some celebs stay more quiet about it, but suddenly that means they don't do good deeds? That's BS! Get some originality and stop brainwashing your fans. Her fans care about her and only her. SAD, SAD people!

7 Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress.

On the start of her career, she performed at an event called the Lollapalooza Festival during 2007 whereby a record label company Interscope found her due to her performance being “amusing” to watch. Since Interscope found her, she was a mastermind behind her songs with... read more

I never liked her one bit. Very soon she's gonna come on stage completely naked (without pants and bra).

She's a very weird pervert... A puppet... I just think that she's dangerous... And look at her style...

She sucks. Her music is terrible and so is she. She lacks common sense. No one likes Lady Gaga.

8 Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Hemsworth (born Destiny Hope Cyrus), known as Miley Cyrus, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She was born on November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, to Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus. Her voice type is Mezzo-Soprano and has 4 octaves. She became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006. After that... read more

I am not a fan of her voice and her music, but deep down I believe she is a beautiful person from inside. Liam and Miley are my all-time favorite couple. She is not an attention seeker and she doesn't need money to be happy. She is unique in her own way. She is not afraid to be judged by anyone. She is a great dog lover like me. She loves spending time with her dogs, which is sweet. She is a notable LGBTQ advocate and she helps people who are in need. I sometimes find her annoying, but I absolutely adore her for who she is.

I loved Miley when she was a kid and leading the Hannah Montana show. But now she has changed. Sometimes her act irritates me. She is still good-hearted, but I don't know why she acts so crazy. Don't hate her because my hate can't change her life. Though she is a good singer, I like her songs.

I voted for Miley because of what she did at the VMAs. If she continues doing these stupid things, she'll soon be more hated than JB. Seriously, she needs to grow up. She's already an adult but she's mentally stuck in middle school or elementary school. I don't know anybody who doesn't hate her now.

9 Enrique Iglesias Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler, known professionally as Enrique Iglesias, is a Spanish singer, songwriter, record producer and actor.

Just sing Spanish songs, dude. You can't compete with others in English.

10 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 2009. He is also known for many hit singles, such as "Kiss Kiss", "Run It!", "Forever", "Deuces", "Look... read more

100% deserves to be higher. I mean, it seems pretty harsh to put Rebecca Black above a convicted domestic abuser when her greatest crime was just being oddly enthusiastic about it being Friday.

There are so many things wrong with him. First off, I'll get this out of the way: he can't sing at all. He drowns his voice in auto-tune, and his lyrics are generic and as basic as basic gets. And to top it off, he's a complete douchebag.

Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Miley Cyrus have not committed crimes. Chris Brown assaulted Rihanna in 2009, but he's still making music. Do not support him.

The Contenders
11 Usher Usher Terry Raymond IV is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor. Born in Dallas, but raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee was where he lived until moving to Atlanta, Georgia at the age of 12 where his mother put him in local singing competitions all over the city.

Usher reminds me of Denzel. Talented but messed up, arrogant personality. See them in interviews and appearances. Always rude, defensive, and indifferent.

I think Usher is a good singer. Maybe he made some bad decisions, but nobody's perfect.

12 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera (born June 26, 1993) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Her four-octave vocal range has received critical acclaim, and her personal life has been the subject of widespread media attention. She has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including two Grammy Awards, one Brit Award, one Bambi Award, two Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards,... read more

Why is Ariana on 48? She should be like 5 or in the top 10! She has an annoying high-pitched voice that can make your head explode. She is also a Mariah Carey wannabe.

She annoys me the most on this list! She can't sing, is a total diva, gets so cranky when she doesn't eat, and can I mention that she said she hates America!

Ariana Grande sounds like a dying whale every time she tries to sing. She has no talent whatsoever.

13 Beyoncé Knowles Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from 1999 to 2004. After they broke up in 2006, Beyonce pursued her solo career, creating smash hits such... read more

Beyoncé can sing and dance and has an amazing body and a wonderful husband and daughter and life! I just commented because I hate her. It's because she's too damn perfect.

Talented but with an appalling attitude. Rude and self-entitled brat.
Also, she is pretty but in a sort of manly way. If someone said, You know, Beyoncé used to be a dude, most people would buy that.

She's a very rude, ignorant, annoying, and disrespectful hoe. She sounds like a clueless 7-year-old.

14 Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was discovered by Brian "Baby" "Birdman" Williams at a very young age, and was signed to Cash Money Records, where he would be one quarter of the rap group Hot Boys. In the years to follow, he would go on to find his own label, Young Money, where he would sign popular artists such as Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga, and he... read more

Absolute disgrace to rap and music in general. No meaningful lyrics, no talent, no positive messages. He started an organization under the name of YMCM to recruit more people in an attempt to destroy an ancient art of music. He should be dead instead of Tupac, Biggie, Nate, Eazy, and the rest of them. Bring back real hip hop!

This guy is a disgrace to rap music. All his "raps" are total hogwash. He makes Kanye sound like Tupac in comparison.

He can't do anything for music. All he does is use autotune, and his rhymes are terrible.

15 Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce da 5'9") half of the hip-hop duo Bad Meets Evil... read more

Eminem is easily one of the most pretentious acts in music of all time. I think it's ironic that Eminem writes music that seems motivational on the surface, but in reality, he'll perform anything to get the center of attention. It would make no difference to his close-minded fanbase if he were singing about anything else, which is why he can get away with songs about masturbating.

And it's also ironic that he writes apparently motivational songs and went through a lot of trouble in his past, yet he deliberately snuffs out anyone and anything he feels like. It is because of musicians like Eminem that people are careless jerks who center themselves in everything they do and become close-minded prats to this propaganda from a false role model. And also, he has near no musical talent. He sounds like a strangled possum.

He's a millionaire who is still the world's biggest crybaby. Grow up! You are rich! Why are you still mad, bro? You expect everybody to respect you because you have been in the game for a long time. Some may say you are the GOAT. Respect the fact that you are getting older and just be with your family and shut up. How did you get out of a 6-foot hole that Machine Gun Kelly buried your ass in?

16 Soulja Boy DeAndre Cortez Way (born July 28, 1990), known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper and record producer. In September 2007, his debut single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" peaked at number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The single was initially self-published to the internet, and later became a number-one hit in the United States for seven non-consecutive weeks starting in September 2007. On August 17, Way was listed at number 18 on the Forbes list of Hip-Hop Cash Kings of 2010 for earning $7 million that year.
17 The Jonas Brothers The Jonas Brothers are an American pop rock band. Formed in 2005, they gained popularity from their appearances on the Disney Channel television network.

I like the Jonas Brothers... cute, cool movies, not bad music. But hey, that's my opinion. Everyone has a right to agree or disagree. It doesn't matter. But at least there are enough artists with different styles to compose music, so there are enough genres for everyone.

18 Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian post-grunge band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

For the love of God, will you people just leave them alone! I mean, seriously, I'm sick and tired of all these jokes about them. To me, it's unjustifiable. They are over-hated and deserve more respect.

Not one of my favorite bands, but they aren't as bad as people say. They also sound good live, and they did a great job covering Sad But True by Metallica.

I don't like Nickelback because most of their songs sound the same. They had one song I liked many years ago. Then they went downhill. Boring!

19 Ke$ha Kesha Rose Sebert (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born on March 1st, 1987 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

I'm not a fan, but I feel kinda sorry for her because she was told that she's too ugly to enter show business. I would like to tell her that, for me, I don't care about the way somebody looks. I only see the talent and performance of the artist. Let me teach you something: only bad people look ugly, like criminals and perverted people...

Kesha is amazing. She may use way too much auto-tune, but she sounds good without it. She is talented, and people should be nice to her because some people make fun of her right in front of her.

Too much autotune. In concerts where she actually performs without autotune, she sounds terrible.

20 Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian-American pop singer. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning for its then-president, hip-hop producer and rapper Jay Z.

She's just a repulsive product created by the bad pop music industry. "Image over substance" is what appeals to the youth. Thanks for justifying this, Rihanna Montana.

She uses autotune like nobody is noticing... She is not even good-looking and thinks that she is a princess... I even hate her face.

I don't think she's attractive. I've seen better-looking women than her.

21 Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, born June 7, 1990 known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

White Nicki Minaj! If only the nightmare wouldn't continue! They're both ugly and annoying, but at least her music isn't as retarded as Nicki's.

Well, as of right now, she's my most hated artist, if that counts. But who knows, there will probably be someone who comes along that will piss me off more than Iggy Azalea.

No one likes her. No one.

22 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 "It Ain't Me". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

I like Selena. She has good talent, I love her music, and she is beautiful no matter what anyone says.
Have you seen the movies she has been in? The songs she sings in them are cool.

I honestly don't see anything special about her... terrible voice, frankly not pretty, and on top of everything, a stupid little brat! Sorry, just being honest!

I don't hate her. I just think she is a horrible singer who can't sing. At least for this reason, Selena should be in the top three.

23 Jacob Sartorius Rolf Jacob Sartorius (known by his middle name), born October 2, 2002, is an American singer and internet personality, who rose to fame via social media from posting lip-syncing videos on and his Vines (on Vine). In 2016, he released his debut single "Sweatshirt", which reached the Hot 100 charts in the United States and Canada. He also has released songs like "Hit or Miss", "Bingo" and... read more

I don't even understand how he came to fame without any talent. He can't sing properly. I don't even understand why he has fans. Do they even exist?

See people, he is only 13 years old and he asked a girl for her nude picture. Can you believe this? This actually happened.

I feel bad for Millie. This kid doesn't even have a true talent.

I'm not sure who's worse between him and Justin Bieber.

24 Waka Flocka Flame Juaquin James Malphurs, better known by his stage name Waka Flocka Flame or simply Waka Flocka, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia.
25 Conor Maynard Conor Paul Maynard is an English singer-songwriter and child actor from Brighton & Hove who is signed to EMI subsidiary, Parlophone.

I grew up with his music. Because my sisters are now obsessed with him, I know basically everything about him and I found nothing wrong with him. Good singer without autotune.

He is an excellent singer, but his songs are very similar to Justin Bieber's, and it isn't okay. Just like JB, he's a complete jerk to people he knows, and his fans are also like JB's.
