Top 10 Most Overhated Music Artists of the 2010s

Some if them may deserve the hate but still the hate towards them goes way too far at times..

The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber 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. more.

The hate for him goes way too far. Yes his music sucks, but saying that you want him to die in a fire or that you want his fans to die is just disgusting. They can like him if they want, it's their opinion. You guys are acting like he's some serial killer when he just commited minor crimes. Like honestly leave him alone already! - CharismaticKat

He deserves to be the most hated singer, his music is garbage and his personality is unbearable. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

At least he didn't ruin your family and your life. - TriggerTrashKid

2 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 and its spin-off show Sam & Cat. more.

I don't like her but this website makes her look heartless. I get she may seem annoying but that's just her style. You shouldn't hate her for that. As for her personality, she organized a concert for those affected by the bombing. She does say dumb things but that doesn't make her a bad person. - CharismaticKat

What's wrong with her? - TriggerTrashKid

She deserves the overhate for making that stupid song Thank You Next. I really despise that "song". So annoying and far too much swearing. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

3 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 sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

Just because she sucks at singing doesn't mean she needs to die. She's a nice girl who cares about others. - CharismaticKat

CKat is correct. - TriggerTrashKid

4 XXXTentacion XXXTentacion Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy (born January 23, 1998), known professionally as XXXTentacion, and often referred to as X, is an American rapper, singer and songwriter.

He's a good, albeit melodramatic artist.
As for the accusations about his girlfriend, as many of the other comments here are saying, nothing has been 100% confirmed yet.
He didn't deserve to be killed though. RIP. - Atham

I'm not adding him because I'm a big fan but because everyone gets the wrong idea. For those who think he beat his girlfriend, it was never confirmed. I think she admitted that he never touched her later. The lyrics to his song Sad is not meant to be manipulative, okay? Saying he deserved to die is harsh and cruel, he was a good person who didn't deserve to die the death he did. - CharismaticKat

He deserves hate. He beat up his girlfriend and made inappropriate music targeted towards children, if he didn't get shot no one would even have cared about him. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Probably because she's schizophrenic. At the end of the day, we all know XXXTentacion was messed in the head so he abused his partner. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Exactly.These people that believe that he beat his girlfriend need some bleach - DarkBoi-X

Deserves it - DarkBoi-X

Oh wow here we go again! Now, apparently the girl that he used in the sexual performance lied about her age...well that's possible but still why would he do such a disgusting thing? He deserves the hate for that. Okay he acts like a criminal in his music videos, not good either but he's probably not like that in real life. I'm sure it's just a stage persona. As for his music, if you don't like it then don't listen to it. For Christ's sake, how hard is that. Wishing rape on him is just terrible though. It is a horrible thing to wish on someone no matter what. It traumatizes people and ruins their lives. I get he's done bad things but wishing rape on some guy who was probably influenced by bad people when he as younger is just sick it makes you look no better than him. So if you want him to die or get prison raped, keep it to yourself. - CharismaticKat

Still what's clear is that he just brings more pain by still being in the music industry.
Maybe he doesn't deserve death threats but other than that, he definitely deserves all the hate he gets. - StarlightSpanks


Um I'm not stupid, it's just my opinion bro and I didn't say I support his actions. - CharismaticKat

6 Rihanna 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 more.

Her music is not as good as it once was but she's still a talented singer. Saying she's bad doesn't change anything. She just gets too much hate for making a few crappy songs. - CharismaticKat

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. Before he became a household name and the artist he is today, he was 1 quarter of the southern rap group The Hot Boys, more.

Boy oh boy, Lil Wayne is just the most overhated rapper of all time. He actually can rap, he just doesn't use his talent. - CharismaticKat

See you again. - TriggerTrashKid

8 Miley Cyrus 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 more.

She's done some gross things in the past, but people don't even give her a chance to redeem herself. She's obviously trying, guys. Her latest album wasn't even that bad by the way. - CharismaticKat

9 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 more.

They were just a harmless boy band yet they got more hate than Dahvie Vanity, an actual rapist. Sure they don't have much talent and were more famous for their look but at least they didn't make songs about threatening to kill young girls! - CharismaticKat

Way to hated their very beautiful and great singers - Izalien

10 Nickelback Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock 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.

You're right, they're actually a good band, plus when people say they're the worst band, that ticks me off because there's worse bands like Migos. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

I thought the hate was justified? - Userguy44

Userguy44 then boy, were you wrong.

Well why do they get a lot of hate then? Nickelback is even first on the worst rock bands list. Nickelback hate never got old even till today. - Userguy44

Nah they deserve the hate. They're disgusting, vile, horrid people with the worst fanbase of all time - TheDarkOne_221b

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 a documentary about more.

Honestly I think Taylor gets way more hate than Selena Gomez or Ariana Grande.

She switched to pop music. Bad choice, but does she really deserve that much hate for making whiny breakup songs? Nah, it was her own choice. - CharismaticKat

Pop doesn't suit her. - TriggerTrashKid

People claim she only writes about break ups when she has literally dozens of songs that aren't about them people also claim she has bad voice solely because she has a poor vocal range and no other factor.
