Well, she made my least favorite song. Reputation was also quite bad.

Older her was likeable but newer her is awful - BoyGenius234

She's a shadow of her former self.

Apparently lyrics make you an unlikable character.

This one speaks for itself... - CrimsonShark

For all the hate he gets, he does have some redeemable traits as a human being, which tends to be vastly overlooked. There are times where he cares about his fans (Not shown too often, but it's there). - CrimsonShark

His songs are very bland and he has a horrible personality. I can almost understand why he gets this much hate. - 3DG20

Kill the hate for this singer - BoyGenius234

This guy should be higher - YoshiApple

Benton is known to start a heated argument with anyone with either petty or no reason. That, and the fact he's generally disrespectful in person makes him a warranty for this list. Let's not forget how terribly "preachy" he is lyrically. - CrimsonShark

She can't sing, has no talent in being a dancer, always rude to her fans. I see why Michael Jackson doesn't even approve of her and I don't blame him for that. Her perfumes are very good though.

How is this guy not in the Top 10? Some of the things he said and done are far worse than what Gene Simmons said.
