10 Musical Artists That Don't Deserve Their Fame


The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claiming he was Part-Indian) and he is Christian. He is the son of an author, Pattie Mallet. ...read more.

I'm sick of Justin Bieber! He's rude, gross, awful to his family and he's got the dumbest fans in the world. He really does. His fans are either little girls who only care about his looks and nit his skill or the crimes he's caused, or people who just like songs that have lyrics like "swaggie". Anybody who really takes this kid seriously, you guys are idiots. He's a joke. He's a joke artist. He's not meant to be taken seriously.

Every time I hear his pathetic voice, I want to grab a bag and puke into it for eternity. I mean, WHY, WHY is he popular, huh? He sings awfully, he looks like a girl and he has no dressing whatsoever. One it was on T.V. and my mom in the next room was like, 'Wow, which female singer is that? ' Bah. - JesusOfSuburbia07

Justin Bieber has sort of improved, but it was terrible how he got sent to jail. I feel pretty bad for my country (I live in Canada too). Not only that, I'm visiting Ontario this August and I'm part Indian too. And I'm christian... But those are hopefully the only things we have in common...

I don't get his fangirls at all. They listen to his music religiously just because they find him attractive? That doesn't make any sense to be honest.

2 Jacob Sartorius Jacob Sartorius Jacob Sartorius was born in Oklahoma . Jacob is a singer known for his top 90 hit Sweatshirt, which amassed over a million YouTube dislikes in less than a year, and other singles ABC remix and musical .ly clips. Jacob Sarorius has a YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and other Social Media.

This little Danish poop got his fame from lip-syncing and dancing to others' music in front of a camera. I don't get how he got popular, I don't get why people like Sweatshirt with a million metric tons of lip-sync in it. His fans, which mostly consist of girls younger than this comment, are complete retards that'll call any vowel that comes out mouth a legend. Jacob Citrusfruit has shown us quite well that he cannot handle fame, especially fame that he didn't deserve. Crying on stream because of hate comments? Grow up! I was eight or younger and I was completely insensitive to such. Sartorius does not look good or sexy like all the teen girls are calling him, he looks like the stereotypical, lanky celebrity.

Even Justin Bieber deserves more fame than this "singer". - drdevil

Talentless! At least Justin Bieber was discovered for his singing. Jacob makes me cringe.

He doesn't produce any music himself,rather uses ghost producers.Doesn't have a very good voice,and writes about unoriginal and often cliche stuff.

Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

Why is she so low? She makes Justin Bieber sound good, no not good. AMAZING. I'm not joking. She really is that bad! Want proof? Go look up Stupid Vie and you'll see what I mean.

For Beyonce you hate that kind of music? I mean, I'm no fan of her but if you listen to this thing, I'm sure your ears'll bleed till you drop dead!

Maybe the reason she's low is that she's starting to lose fame. And that is GOOD.

She ruined the rap industry.

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 ...read more.

Rihanna should change her name to "talentless pop artist" because she's talentless and is a pop artist.

Yes! Rihanna can't sing for crap! - DaWyteNight

Who voted for her are the ones that doesn't deserves to be famous. - DaisyandRosalina

Your English doesn't deserves to be famous. Rihanna is horrible, why do you like this fool so much? - RnBLover


6 One Direction 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 ...read more.

They are famous just for their looks, they can barely sing and their music is trashy. They are also terrible music and girls who say "they saved my life" are all liars because those boys do nothing but smoke weed and sing about stealing girlfriends

They were put together on X-Factor by chance. They didn't even want to be in a band, they just got lucky. Its not like they've worked hard for years on end to perfect their music like many other bands. They just got damn lucky.

They have no talent whatsoever. They don't write their own music and they can't play any instruments, yet they call themselves "artists".

The only thing I like about them is that they are honestly adorable. But I hate that people think they're sooo good, heck, they even made a cover of Blondie's One Way or Another, and everyone was pretty mad about that.

7 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 gets all that attention/fame ONLY because of the way she acts in her music videos, her live performances, the way she dresses, the half-naked Instagram pictures she postes etc. People never talk about her music because her music is truly horrible. I never thought of her as one of the best singers ever, she has a good voice for Disney standarts but as every single Disney singer/actress, her voice isn't capable of many things and not strong enough. However, some of her older songs used to really fit her voice and the "persona" she created. The Hannah Montana era was the best for her career, she had a way bigger fanbase and she was making music that actually fit her vocal range/style. She followed the path of every other child star.

She looks like a bucktoothed hillbilly and can't even sing better than my cat hanging from its tail. 'Nuff said -___-

She used to be so much better but in order to gain more fans and publicity she completely changed her image.

She is improving - micahisthebest

8 Beyonce Beyonce 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 ...read more.

I disagree. I think Beyonce is one of the few people in this industry that gets exactly the fame that she deserves. She is hardworking, she is a dancer, she has killer vocals, she does charity, she's overall an ARTIST, not just a singer.

I hate this type of music - rock2metal

She can sing and is a good performer but she doesn't write, produce or play any of her songs. a musical artist is just that an artist not just a singer.

9 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 may not have Adele's killer pipes but she worked hard for her fame. She has 6 breakup songs not a MILLION! SIX! And what's wrong if she has love songs she also has friendship songs, self-empowerment songs, crush songs, happy songs and Don't-listen-to-the-haters songs. She may not have an OVER THE TOP AMAZING voice, but she is special. No one can write songs like she can. She isn't an artist with bad or non-sense lyrics and her songs actually have deep meanings. People only listen to 3 songs and judge her on it! And what if she had many boyfriends? Every girl nowadays does. Please listen to story of us, 22, you belong with me, welcome to new york, I'm only me when I'm with you, teardrops on my guitar, wildest dreams, all too well, begin again, ours, mine, mean, (and more) and you see her incredible and great lyrics. She worked hard for her fame. And now she has many Top 10 singles and 2 music videos with 1Billion+ views. And to the person who said that she was unoriginal because ...more

All she does is write her breaking up with her boyfriends, how original. "Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground" Calm down sweetie, it's not like he literally threw you on the floor. And if you haven't noticed, Taylor, breaking up with someone is literally a part of growing up. I feel like if she was to marry someone, then divorce later, she would try to kill herself, or try cutting. Then she would write a song about how he cheated on her, and how he abused her, but in real life he probably just augured with her. Her music used to actually be good, until she went for the diva-overdramatic- white ass girl. And, I just don't like HER.

Taylor Swift would be good if she didn't get all of her inspiration from her own music. And her hair makes me sad, all flippy and blond. Everybody thinks she's the hottest thing since fire, but I've dated prettier women.

This girl is not talented. She is just passing as this sweet and friendly, girl-next-door type, but her voice isn't that special.

10 Ke$ha Ke$ha 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

She's not that famous anymore. Besides, you can't really give her any crap anymore because obviously she has been through so much (working with a guy that was sexually assaulting her and never making the music she wanted to make).

Tik Tok (or Toc) is her only catchy song. Everything else is not catchy nor does it make sense. - booklover1

When someone thinks that he/she is so cool that they need to use the dollar sign in their name... They're lame.

Never heard of her

15 Willow Smith Willow Smith Willow Camille Reign Smith, known professionally as Willow, is an American singer, actress and dancer.

It is so not fair that girl can't sing but no one said she was a singer but she can dance give her the props fire ball was a good song but she and jayden wouldn't be famous if it wasn't their parents fame surrounding them. Willow smith act to grown and her mother got her hair cut and she wear extensions I'm 1 year older than her and I can sing 100 better its not fair but she can dance

Willow and Jaden are famous only because of their parents, who are not bad show people themselves. But if you want fame, go get it yourself...

You can't say that Willow Smith doesn't deserve her fame, simply because she's not that famous. She's in number 7 above waaay more famous people than her like Nicki Minaj and Madison Beer and comparing to Madison Beer, Willow is a much better singer.

How is she lower than Taylor Swift

16 Lady Gaga Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She is the first female artist to ever since Cher to get nominated by the Grammys and Emmys . In 2013, during her era on Artpop, she was chosen to perform in a concert from iTunes . ...read more.

She used to get more attention, after 2011 that attention stopped and if you think about it, it makes sense because her songs lost their originality completely. Born this way is still her best song to this day because it's an anthem to being different and proud of who you are no matter what people say and that used to be Gaga's brand for a long time, that's why she used to wear these crazy outfits, to show how important it is to stand out in a crowd. Nowadays, she's not being talked about and people don't even rank her with the best pop stars anymore.

Lady gaga is alright but she doesn't deserve the amount of fame she has recieved. But why the hell is beyonce on this list, beyonce works really hard and deserves all the fame she gets because she works for it, plus beyonce has never used the press to boost her fame with drug andd sex scandals which means that she deserves her fame even more. - fisto77

As soon as her music is her primary focus, she may eventually deserve credit. You can tell she is only in it for the money though because why else would you dress in those outfits? Does it add to your music? No.

Her music used to be so good, she used to put effort into her music and now all she cares about is how she's going to be as controversial as possible.

17 Rebecca Black Rebecca Black Rebecca Black is a YouTube personality and singer who's infamous for her single "Friday," which was once the most disliked video on YouTube. She has also released other songs, including "My Moment" and "Saturday".

She doesn't write her own music & can't sing. Enough said

She is famous for being a horrible singer and the problem is that she actually embraces that.

Only got famous because of enough likes on YouTube.

She shold be #1 how is Taylor Swift above her

You know what pisses me the hell off? Cheryl Cole. I am sick of hearing about this idiot. People say she is an inspiration, inspiration for what? She has no talent and she can't sing live and uses auto-tune! - DaWyteNight

Doesn't deserve fame
