Top 10 Most Overhated Pop Artists

Considering how pop music gets so much hate on this site. I'd figure to make a list on the most overhated pop artists.

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.

His music is catchy but, very overrated. His vocals are pretty average and he doesn't seem to care for anyone other than himself. When he was younger, he cared a lot more and actually thanked those who got him where he was. Now, he just yells at fans for taking pictures, leaves in the middle of his concerts, and many more horrendous things. He doesn't put effort into his lyrics or the quality of his songs. He just makes songs he knows people will like, it doesn't even matter if he personally enjoys the song anymore. Truly sad to see him act so harshly to those who got him his fame/money and for him to produce mediocre songs.

People just think its "Cool" to hate him. He is a human being, would you like to be famous and suddenly everyone hated you. You became as hated as much as Justin Bieber and you hated Justin Bieber how would you feel?

Nothing more than a slightly below mediocre pop star with no distinguishing features. Nowhere near the worst there is. - DCfnaf

Too puffed up with pride, thinks the world bows at his feet as if he were some important figure in culture. He honestly just copied other mainstream artists that think the same things. Extremely overrated.

2 Adele Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles more.

It's a farce that Adele is on this list. She's one of the most talented artists ever. She has an amazing voice and writes incredible songs. Furthermore, she's won MANY awards. Why? Because she's BRILLIANT.

She's honestly not as terrible as some say. Her vocal range is great and she has proven to be very talented.

Apparently one song means the rest are bad. - Swellow

"Adele is overrated" "Adele only sounds good because her songs are easy"
Adele puts a lot of effort and emotion in her singing more than all the 2000s singers, how is this bad? - DaisyandRosalina

3 Kesha Kesha 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. more.

She had some gems in her older discography, but she truly became a great artist this year with her new album. - DCfnaf

They only looked at her surface level image and not the real her. I doubt any of those people actually knew what horrible things were going on in her life. She is a truly beautiful, amaizing person with incredible talent and a heart of gold. We all love you now, Kesha. - Twixx

I'll admit I used to be on the Kesha hate bandwagon but she drastically improved since her old days.

P.S. go buy her Rainbow album! - Twixx

4 Justin Timberlake Justin Timberlake Justin Randall Timberlake is an American singer-songwriter, actor, dancer, and record producer. Born and raised in Tennessee, he appeared on the television shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child.

Mediocre but heard far worse.

5 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne Avril Ramona Lavigne is a Canadian–French singer-songwriter and actress. By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16, she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista Records worth more than $2 million.

Her only bad song is Hello Kitty... - DaisyandRosalina

"Hello Kitty" and "Girlfriend" are like...her only bad songs. (From what I’ve heard) - DCfnaf

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

Appearance =/= Music - DCfnaf

She is an artist and only hated for controversy. - DaisyandRosalina

Like about 4 of her songs - westofohio

7 Taylor Swift 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 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.

I don't get this. She's the only good pop artist of today. KILL ALL HATERS!

She is awesome!

Say whatever you want about music, but the media is expecting too much of her, and she gets judged for everything. She is overhated to an extent. - ProPanda

Amazing person with amazing songs. Don't get why some people love to hate this amazing human being

8 Britney Spears Britney Spears Britney Jean Spears (born December 2, 1981) is an American singer and actress who was born in McComb, Mississippi, and grew up in Kentwood, Louisiana. She performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows like "The Mickey Mouse Club" as a child before signing with Jive Records in 1997 more.

Although she only has three or four songs I like (I hate modern pop), I believe that people have gotten her all wrong. Firstly, she actually has a good natural voice. Unfortunately, she was forced into this nasally, baby voice. Secondly, I know this isn't related to her music, but I think that her 2007-2008 mental breakdown does NOT make her a bad person. She seems quite nice, actually. K. Fed was partially to blame for it, and her fame got the best of her as well, she was brainwashed to believe fame only has benefits. Paparazzi suck. Would you want at least 30 people with cameras following you around 24/7? Me neither. She is a normal person whom many happen to know about. Thirdly, although I can't stand a quarter of her songs, I feel like they are the only songs people think about when talking about her. They do not have anything to do with her personality. She is not a bad person, she just happens to have sung Pretty Girls. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

She has a terrible voice, but an impressive discography (before 2015), she is not bad. - DaisyandRosalina

She might use auto tune but she isn't atrocious by any means.

Nowadays she’s pretty forgettable and bland, but she was kinda interesting in the 90s. - DCfnaf

9 Lorde Lorde Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor, better known by her stage name Lorde, is a New Zealand singer-songwriter.

Wait, is she hated? - DaisyandRosalina

She made a #1 hit that was about how every pop song you hate talks about the same nonsensical idiocy over and over. Enough said.

Melodrama was also a good album. - DCfnaf

10 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.

Not a big fan of her but she's not god awful.

I actually like her music - westofohio

She isn't even thirty yet and she's already a queen and this site hates her, smh - ProPanda

Can show her talent at times, but sometimes her bad outweights her good. - Swellow


The Contenders

11 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 more.

The hate probably has to do with the fact that 90 percent of her live appearances are lip-synched due to the elaborate dance routines. Same goes for Britney Spears. Nobody can dance like that and still sing properly.

I don't think I need to explain why for this one.

Good singer but not overhated - DaisyandRosalina

People have gone too far with her hate. It’s gotten to the point where people say she CAN'T EVEN SING.

That’s nonsense. - DCfnaf

12 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor Meghan Elizabeth Trainor is an American singer and songwriter. Trainor's work has been recognized with several awards and nominations, including a Grammy Award, Music Business Association's Breakthrough Artist of the Year accolade and two Billboard Music Awards.

Probably the most overhated artist of the decade. Yes, she has terrible songs, but she has some fun, catchy tracks. - DCfnaf

"All About That Bass" Was mediocre but she does have far better songs in all honesty.

Catchy music - DaisyandRosalina

13 Jojo Siwa Jojo Siwa

How the hell is this guy talentless? He makes good music. - DCfnaf

Most of his lyrics are all the same. Sex and drugs and stick to stupid lyrics. Annoying black guy singing falsetto praising satan. - waraypiso

He is not that hated! He has talent!

17 Shawn Mendes Shawn Mendes Shawn Peter Raul Mendes is a Canadian singer-songwriter and model. He attracted a following in 2013, when he began posting song covers on the popular video sharing application Vine.

He's the most talented singer ever

He deserves the hate he's generic and boring as hell.

Sorry, but you clearly haven’t listened to enough Shawn Mendes to say he’s “generic” or “boring.”

Stitches has to be one of the most uninspired songs I've ever heard.

She is great as long as you love auto-tune, which a lot of people do.

"She can't sing! "
Ok so if you thought that her acoustic version of "Havana" on Elvis Duran was bad, then that's like saying that the holocaust was a good movement. She CAN sing, she uses next to NO autotune, she is FAR from racist, she is NOT a 🐍, and she is a SWEET, down to earth, wonderful person!

She gets WAAAY too much hate, when she is UNproblematic! She CAN sing, she is FAR from racist, she’s a WONDERFUL person, she is FAR from a 🐍
