Top Ten Reasons Why Today's Pop Stars and Rappers Suck


The Top Ten

1 Both Pop Stars and Rappers Make Songs About Something Inappropriate

This is one of the most unoriginal lists I've ever seen. - Puga

2 Some Rappers and Pop Stars Have 1 Big Hit and Suddenly They Have a Downfall

I'm keeping an eye on you Meghan Trainor (aka One Hit Wonder) - Seiran

3 Rappers Cuss a Lot of Times In Their Songs

Though rap does have lots of swearing, I believe classic rock can be more disturbing with their lyrics. Kim by Eminem is pretty wrong, but there's also Getting Better by The Beatles.
"I used to be cruel to my woman, I'd beat her..."
... WHAT?
Then there's Who are You? By the Who. It has swearing.
And then there's a few Nirvana songs. For example, Heart-Shaped Box.
"I wish I could eat your cancer when, you turn back." - MontyPython

Even though I hate modern rap and pop, this list and reason is pretty stupid. Rock and metal curse too. - NikBrusk

So do rock groups, and every other genre, look up ├ćnima by Tool that's a rock song with lots of cursing - Quart

4 Rappers and Pop Stars Only Care About Fame and Money

And so are many rock and electronic groups - Quart

5 Pop Stars and Rappers Strive to Get Attention In the Worst Ways V 1 Comment
6 Pop Stars and Rappers Get Overadvertised V 1 Comment
7 Pop Stars and Rappers Take All Credit and Leave the Others With Little or None

In the music industry, it's survival of the fittest.
Staying relevant? Ok, but that'll probably last you a couple of months.
No new songs? Produce another one, quick! Your biggest rival could steal your spotlight!

You see what I mean? All those poor, unknown bands are gonna die if they don't come up with something new. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

And that basically means that the quality of the music gets sacrificed for the money being earned. The music industry is basically about getting money and not making music.

8 Their Songs Suck

Not all suck, I listen to lots of todays music, and some of it is great once you can get past Nicki Minaj and whoever - kaitlynrad11

9 They Start Feuds for the Stupidest Reasons

10 Pop Stars and Rappers Are Both Talentless

Quart, this thing is not about pop stars and rappers of all time, but today's rappers and pop stars

Michael Jackson, 2Pac, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Madonna (well some of her stuff), Adele, and the hip hop band Run The Jewels, are talentless? they're actually extremely talented - Quart

The Contenders

11 Their Songs Have Weak Melodies
12 You Don't Need Talent Any More, Just Looks and Auto-Tune.

Very true. They don't even actually sing live, they play it backstage and let the song sing itself! - NikBrusk
