This singer is good though but she's getting worser everyear. Her newer songs sounds like generic trap pop song especially B****! I'm Madonna. Don't get me wrong, I'm amazed on the artists in their 40s and 50s who make songs that appeal to younger generation but that song is just a pathetic excuse.
It's sad to say, but Madonna is passed her prime. I don't know what's worse nowadays, her music or her showing her ass and acting like she's young on Jimmy Fallon's show.
At first, I thought she was absolutely terrible because the first song I had heard from her was one of her more recent stuff, but although I still don't care for her old stuff, it was at least better than what she does now.

While I wouldn't consider his early music "best artist of the 21st century" worthy I can actually kind of see where that view is coming from. Yet I struggle to think of even something minor he has done right in the past few years musically or otherwise.
Kanye's first three albums (The College Dropout, Late Registration, and Graduation) were all classics and are something that every rap fan has to listen to. His fourth album (808s & Heartbreak) was average, but that was when he started going downhill because of his depression that was caused by his mother's death. His fifth album (My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy) was also average, but this was where we first saw how egotistical he had become. His last two albums (Yeezus and The Life of Pablo) were just garbage and noise with no creative lyricism or unique beats. I miss the old Kanye!
The 1st 3 albums (College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation) were amazing, his next 2 were good but... (808s & Heartbreak, MBDTF) he became a bit egotistical, his last 2 were kinda lame compared to his old stuff. He's still decent and hasn't gone downhill too bad.
When was this scumbag ever good.

If you think that this band is still good, listen to Battle Symphony and Heavy.
That's all I'm gonna say...
Their first 3 albums were pretty good, and then they turned to crap.
The didn't get bad< they just changed genres.
They've been awful from the start.

Their late 80s and early 90s are good but their album Chinese Democracy is not that good.
It's a shame, I liked their old stuff.
Goes without saying
5 Taylor Swift
Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. ...read more.
She's going downhill and uphill again. She makes great albums such as Fearless and Speak Now but her album Reputation is her weakest album at all. However, she's going uphill again with the albums such as Folklore and Evermore.
Just imagine her negative frame of mind that fuels the drive to make songs/videos to scorn old boyfriends and beefs with other artists (for more than a decade now).
I'm glad people aren't crazy about her anymore, in few years she'll fade into obscurity.
I went to her concert a few months ago. If I had to choose between her old stuff and new stuff, I'd go old stuff like Blank Space.
I'm not a fan of any of her music, old or new, but she was definitely better back then.

Unfortunately, yes. After 2000 they started playing mostly country songs, or country-inspired songs. I like their 80s songs very much.
They are awful wayback 80s and 90s and obviously they got much worser with making forgettable and boring rock songs.
I liked their last album...

I don't think it's that they've gotten worse, but more the fact that I've just grown away from them. I think it's more my state of mind than their musical talent.

From 2006 to 2012, she was one of those "hit or miss" artists. Some of her songs were good and some were mediocre. Now, almost all of them are flat out terrible.
She started of good, now her newer songs are more hit or miss.
