Worst Female Singers of All Time

You know their are great female singers but then their are some aweful ones. Let's expose these ladies.

The Top Ten

1 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe" . Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

No duh shes the worst female singer. Horrible! She didn't get in the bizz based on talent that's for sure. She only got in cause shes got a huge chest and huge behind. Her videos are disturbing and disgusting, her voice is auto tuned, and even then it sounds horrible. She can't rap. She ENJOYS being treated like a sex toy, and really wants to be a sex toy. Gives women a terrible name. In every video she is constantly half naked or ready to have sex. I'd like to see her wear normal clothes for once. Her facial expressions are creepy as hell, and her lyrics are pointless and stupid. Whenever she makes her voice go really high or really low, it just freaks me out. She has no respect for her body and thinks shes all that. Why is she judging american idol when she can't sing? Her fake looks are what got her here, nothing more. She is destroying womens reputation and music - dragonfly99

Why is she down here?
SHE'S TERRIFYING!
Her voice (live), her videos, and her face are all nasty as hell!
She shoudn't even be on a commercial or magazine

NICKI MINAJ YOU CAN'T BE A SINGER YOU'RE AWFUL

Her songs are terrible! They are DIE TIER! And on top of this, she swears A LOT, even more than most rappers! Camila Cabello is infinitely superior than this rat!

2 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 is just a really bad actor/singer/celebrity... Pointless plots and bad music videos (don't do a fisheye lens and a pouty eyes closed thing (7 things), it looks awful). Even Rebecca Black is in some ways better.

Her speaking voice is like nails on a chalkboard... And she always has the same dumb expression on her face.

When she still young, she looks fine and nothing bad. But then, she became a disgusting, awful and the worst singer in my opinion. What made her into this? I don't know! This should be number 1 of the worst female singers! I swear this singer have no point on what is she did to herself, her voice and her expressing emotion! Her hair, her face, her personality disgusted me enough. So throw your fame away, Miley. - TheRegular1227

Hannah Montana was the reason she turned herself into that monster she is now. - DCfnaf

Horrible music...her voice makes me shudder. It's like nails on a chalkboard - FloydtheCat

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 sing in alto .

Okay, so let me begin by saying that you should judge a singer by their live ability since in studio anything can be done. Next, her live singing is terrible because she is not in tune, her voice does not even come close to some notes, she uses auto-tune live which is pathetic. She also falls into the category of another disney girl. Just to show I don't put everyone in this category, I do have to say the one and only person from disney who has talent and might possibly be one of the top 25 best female singers is demi lovato. After hearing her I was surprised at how good she was. I made me think twice about selena, but then I listened to her again and realized selena is even worst than I thought

I personally think Selena is a real person. She has worked so hard to get to the position she is in now. However, she is a grown woman now and we can see through her music, her movies and her physical presentation how much she has matured. Now aside from Selena, I personally admire singers that write their own lyrics, and I know Selena has written a small number of her songs... But I found the lyrics she sings contradictory to one another.

Take Who Says for example. This song has meaningful lyrics: you are beautiful.

"You may be insecure.
To me I wasn't good enough
But who are you to judge
When you're a diamond in the rough. "

But sadly, she sings Bang Bang Bang which lyrics include:

"My new boy use to be a model
He looks way better than you
He looks way better than you do"

Shallow much? And the rest of the lyrics is trash talking this boy and downsizing him to another boy. I get it. Maybe she has been cheated on. I ...more

Come on its just a song about nick jonas, personally I love both of them and I really like that song because it just fun and it has a good rhythm I don't really like the lyrics to be honest but you can't say she is a trash singer come on just listen to the heart wants what it wants and then come back and vote again

She can't sing live. She use autotune in her recording just to make her voice good. But she really can't sing.

Selena is AMAZING and AWESOME, autotune or not, she still sounds great! All you haters are just jealous! She shouldn't be on this list, let alone at #3! She CAN give us a great performance, you haters just aren't openminded enough to see it! And she seems to have toned down the autotune in Same Old Love, Bad Liar, and Fetish! You can rant about Nicki, or Yoko, or Iggy, but SELENA? No! Selena shouldn't be on this list along with Queen Bey, Taylor, Ariana, Camila, and Meghan.

4 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

Put Iggy Azalea above Kesha and Nicki Minaj! She is worse than the two of them combine. At least Kesha and Nicki Minaj show that they have some talent and skill and are both wicked hot. BUT IGGY AZALEA HAS NO FLOW AND SHE IS SO FAKE WITH HER ACCENT AND SHE'S UGLY. Even with auto tune that Kesha and Nicki Minaj use they still sound more realistic than Iggy. Also Kesha has way better lyrics and doesn't write about the same thing over and over again, Nicki Minaj's songs sound the same, but in a way they work plus she's a way better freestyler than Iggy, Iggy is one of the worst freestylers I have ever heard. ALL OF IGGY AZALEA'S SONGS SOUND THE SAME! THEY'RE ALL ABOUT HOW GANGSTA SHE THINKS SHE IS WHEN IN REALITY SHE ISN'T! I have never seen a female musician as fake is Iggy Azalea. She is also even worse than Rebecca Black and Miley Cyrus, I didn't think that was possible to be worse than Rebecca and Miley, but Iggy actually managed to pull it off, Well Done!

Honestly I can't think of anybody more deserving of the #1 spot than Iggy Azalea. She is everything I hate about the music industry. I'm sick and tired of seeing Nicki Minaj at the #1 spot when Piggy Azalea should be at the #1 spot. No woman in music has pissed me off more than Iggy

She's worse than Nicky Minaj she wants to be black so bad. I mean have you heard her freestyle

How is Iggy below Selena Gomez? Selena DOES have talent, I watched her Revival Tour and she SLAYED! Whereas iggy has no talent at all. Charli XCX and Ariana Grande shouldn't bother with this horrible woman! In fact maybe Iggy should switch with Miley (because Miley's gotten better with Malibu) So the list should go:
1. Nicki Minaj
2. Iggy Azalea
3. Rebecca Black
4. KE$HA
5. Yoko Ono
6. Katy Perry
7. Rihanna (her old stuff was phenomenal but her modern stuff is crap)
Etc etc

5 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.

Taylor is a terrible singer and person. She is better than rebecca black, but all she does is put the same color lipstick on every day and curl iron her hair, Like someone said. Her songs are babyish and only appeal towards little girls and their family. She has a very weak vocal range too, according to a chart, only topping Luke Bryan. Her voice is nasally, which can be a good thing for SOME singers, like Leann Rimes, Celine Dion and Martina McBride. It makes me want to deject all my food like its poison just when a three minute song comes on the radio that she writes. They say she's sweet just because she whines like an attention seeking baby to all of her brainwashed fans that one of the 1700 men she has dated forgot her puppy's last name and bashes them. Being pretty does not make you a good singer. Adele, for example, may not have much physical beauty, but she's talented and truly gorgeous with a phenomenal voice. I wish you were still alive, Whitney, I pray for you and your ...more

Taylor swift is a horrible influence. The only thing she writes and sings about is her stupid breakups. Seriously, she writes a song about anyone who she thinks wrongs her, but can't even write one song about important things. Also, she always plays the "innocent victim," the one who everyone should feel sorry for. Yeah Taylor... It's pretty hard to feel sorry for you when you live in a multi millionaire's mansion, have thousands and thousands of fans, and some pop star friends that are clearly brainwashed by you. Another thing is her feud with Katy Perry and how Taylor wrote "Bad Blood." It was super immature to write a song about her just because you had a bone to pick with her. Plus, did we ever get to know Perry's side? Nope! Just take it from stupid Swift and think that Katy started it all. Wow Taylor, real mature! Taylor definitely deserves to be on this list. In fact, she should be FIRST!

Look taylor swift is my favorite singer I may not be able to relate to her music but I enjoy it and just because she writes about the awful or good men in her life that does not mean she is a bad singer

I prefer her singing when she was in country

6 Rebecca Black Rebecca Black Rebecca Black is "well known" for her "hit" single, "Friday", which has the second most dislikes on YouTube .

God! Who told her she has talent? She seriously has no brain and her music can KILL someone! My mom had a heart attack when she heard her song 'friday'
WHO FLIPPING CARES ABOUT FRIDAY? It comes every week... Stop acting like its the last friday of you stinking, useless life rebecca...

She can sing, however, her song friday sucks balls. and she was already a great singer until she auto tuned her whole song friday

I hear she got bullied out of school after making Friday... Now her only friend is auto tune. FOREVER ALONE...

You should try a lot harder and why are not in first place? Because just because your father and mother had a lot of money that you got to make a lot music. Well if that chance I would have been a billionaire by now.

Well, Rebecca improved not like the ones in this list. She does not use auto-tune anymore and can sing now but people are just gonna bitch and hate just because of that one song Friday.

7 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

I seriously can't see why Kesha isn't in the top ten.

Horrible autotune singing! Songs just about drugs, sex and partying!

Seriously, she's just horrible!

Hands down the most relentlessly untalented woman is music, her songs are nothing but spoken word auto-tuned to sound "good" if you really can call it that. She's another example of what happens when white trash gets money.

Good rhythm to her songs but they are only about sex partying and drugs mainly things no one is looking forward to

Shes honestly a really good singer, not the best vocalist but a good singer, but its just.. well.. her music quality sucks and shows no vocal ability whatsoever - anewman

She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning ...read more.

It really annoys me how mediocre singers like Rihanna are so successful because they use auto tune and dance around naked in their videos. It's never about the love of music for Rihanna it's always what outrageous thing can I do so I can get even more publicity and make more money. (i.E. S&M by being banned in 5 countries she got huge amounts of publicity and the song was very successful)

I hate this drug-addict singer and she's lip-sinking! Her hair look road-killed and she wears skimpy outfits! She ruins every video especially the ones that her and Eminem created called, "Love the Way You Lie"! Megan Fox, I love you but stay away from Rihanna!

This girl can't sing live, she sing nasal and sing half of her songs and get tired easily... You call that a singer? Lmfao, if she wasn't pretty no one would care about her! Hoe-rrible!

After the S&M song I was no longer a fan!

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.

Dear people who are calling her a fraud,
She lipsings, but her songs are hers. I bet that your favorite singers (like that Macklemore crap) lipsing too.

Dear people who are calling her weird,
She's herself and she's not gonna change just because someone told her to! I respect that! Her style is her own. She wants to die an original. Lady Gaga stands out in a crowd and isn't afraid to be herself.

Lady Gaga is probably one of the MOST original artists that have walked this planet. She CAN sing and she's not afraid to sing what SHE believes, not what the entire world thinks.

Her fashion sense gives me the creeps and her song downright annoying..

For the sake of humanity, please people, take a brief moment of reflection about what you think of this woman. Do you really think that she is original in the world of music (industry)? Has she created a new style or even had any influence over any other (real) artist? I really doubt it, since she still does the same pop standard as everyone else out there. I heard some of her new jazz stuff, and it was decent, even good compared to what she had previosly done, I can give you that. But she is not that talented, wake up. She might have a good voice, nothing from another world, there are (and there were) MUCH better ones at different styles of music. So talking about the music she sells, it fits the pop average quality (which is actually quite low). Not to mention her lyrics, they are so dull and dumb (Just Dance, telephone, applause, highway unicorn and I can keep on mentioning) only refering sexual themes, drugs, popularity and otrher silly teenage thoughts.

I can't hate her ...more

I laugh at when people on facebook, twitter or youtube compete this fat fake voiced skank against Divas like christina aguilera, whitney houston, mariah carey etc saying britney doesn't autotune and she doesn't lip sync. I need to tell you blind geeks to go to specsavers and get glasses, maybe also a hearing aid. SHE IS THE CREATOR OF AUTO TUNE AND LIP SYNC!

Yuck. She can't sing for crap. It's all voice editing for her.

She had weird toddler kind of voice when she sang, today she is just overproduced machine autotune kind of voice mixed with dental drill. She never sings live and Thank God for that. In my opinion one of the worst female "singers" ever.

It hurts my insides that Britney is not higher than Lady Gaga on this list. - DCfnaf

I'm a Mariah fan, but I will defend Ariana and say that she is a really good singer. Ariana is actually talented and sweet. She's not a terrible singer so she shouldn't even be on this list.

Sorry, but she actually does sing worse than a good bit, but definitely isn't near the worse. - EliHbk

WHY is Ariana Grande lower than Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and Mariah Carrey? Ariana copies Taylor's style and Selena's video. She also have the same voice as Mariah Carrey. People only like her because of her singing, but she is so rude toward Victoria Justice and Selena Gomez WITHOUT any reasons. She and Selena (who is number 4 on the list because of Arianators and Beliebers) should switch places

She's got nothing special to offer. Doesn't write songs, copies other artists, unprofessional behavior, rude brat, liar, average voice. Her fans should wake up, how can you root for someone with a bad attitude? Go home Ariana, you conceited arrogant nobody.

STOP HATING ON ARIANA GRANDE! Just cause she can be a bit of a diva at times does not mean she is super bad. She is VERY GOOD LIVE, especially when I saw her perform Dangerous Woman at the Radio Disney Music Awards, the only thing was she had to censor stuff, because it was a bit inappropriate for kids. And sure she sings about sex but she actually deserves a huge one-up for embracing her sexuality. If she wants to behave provocatively on stage and/or sing about sex, well then LET HER. Who are you to judge? It's not like she goes overboard like Miley Cyrus, JLO, or nicki Minaj, who do it for the cash. She does it to express herself. And she is actually nice to her fans at times, plus she's a feminist and a huge supporter of gays. And she has talent, listen to her song My Everything, she PLAYED THE PIANO. Also listen to One Last Time, it's a meaningful song without any sexual lyrics. And Problem is also a really good breakup/drama song. Stop making fun of her. And her Focus song is ...more

13 Yoko Ono Yoko Ono Yoko Ono is a Japanese multimedia artist, singer, songwriter, and peace activist who is also known for her work in performance art, music, and filmmaking.

How is this hoe below Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga? They have TALENT, whereas this freak wouldn't know talent if it hit her in the face. There are some pretty bad singers above yoko like nicki minaj, miley cyrus, iggy azalea, ke$ha, rihanna (her modern stuff is bad, but her old stuff was good), but they're nowhere NEAR as laughable as yoko. I don't care what positions they get, they definitely deserve to be on this list, but yoko deserves #1.

You idiots realize that Minaj is bad but Yoko Ono is way worse you realize that she doesn't sing with autotune and sounds awful. - Randomteenager

Worst singer of all time! She is worse than Rebecca Black! The fact that she doesn't even use auto tune, makes it worse.

This COW has got to be the worst female singer I have ever heard! She sucks so bad that do you even call her a singer? What the crap is she? What is she? She has to use autotune, where even THEN she sounds bad, she yodels like a freak, she has got to be the worst female singer EVER! I mean there are some other pretty bad singers on this list, but at least you can call them SINGERS. Heck call nicki Minaj the worst, but yoko ono? What the crap is she? What is she? What the FRICK is she? She's lower than the worst! She's worse than the worst! She should be #1! But Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, Selena Gomez, Meghan Trainor, and Lady Gaga shouldn't be on this list.

15 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor

I don't really like her because even though all about that bass is supposed to be positive it doesn't seem that way. I'm not saying it's skinny shaming, it's just after she refers to slim people as 'b*****s', she proceeds to let us know that 'boys like a little more booty to hold at night,' as if the only way to have a good boyfriend is to have a big bum. It might have had good intentions but it sent the wrong message to me.

Also her and Charlie Puth's song 'Marvin Gaye' is pointless and stupid.

Exactly, and it paints as perverts. I hate artists like that. She is helping no one! - EliHbk

She may not have the best voice and is basically talking in them, but her massages I like. Most singers, especially girls sing mostly about love, heartbreak, how someone hurt them, etc... but she mostly sings about how she likes herself & that she likes being an independent woman who is uninterested in dating. Not saying there's anything wrong with love, but it shouldn't b a woman's main focus & that's what Meghan mostly sings about & say I can respect the girl way more than Taylor & most other singers even.

And about 'all about that bass,' she said she was 'just playing' so she wasn't serious with that comment. That song was just saying even if your over 150 lbs u can still b beautiful and I don't have to go by society's standards because every1 has different views of beauty. No need to skinny shame sure, but there isn't no need to fat shame ether commenters =/

These female on the List are horrible

Taylor swift is worse than her but can't stand meghan

Her best solo song thus far is Me Too, something I can barely tolerate. Her Jason Derulo and John Legend collabs were alright though. - ProPanda

Britney Spears used to be an ok singer in the 90s and early 00s, but now she is just bad. She uses way to much auto tune now. Remember, this is about her singing ability, not anything else. Nevertheless, Britney still puts on good performances even though she lip-syncs, so she is a good showbiz girl. At least she is not talentless when it comes to that. Disclaimer, I have never seen one of concerts live, but I have seen video clips of concerts, and they seem fun. However, I would much rather have her singing, like JLO when she is live. I have never seen a JLO show or video from one of her shows, but I have heard she sings live there and she sang live on America Idol, and she sing good.

I don't like Britney Spears, and I haven't heard her that much, but a lot of stories say that she was forced to give up her real voice and put on a "Baby Voice" just so she could sound like a pop star. Apparently her real voice was beautiful and full, so maybe if she got a chance to sing with her real voice we would all be blown away.

Sucks from day 1! auto tune teen crap all the way

So bad that she's on the list twice. - The01Bro

What the hell, she's not a singer now is she! THE WORLD HAS ENDED! Kim Kardashian is literally one of the worst people in the world, she is so fake, she has loads of plastic surgery, she is only famous for being alive, whereas everyone else on this list had to WORK to get where they are now. Kim is not the most annoying female, she's the most annoying person in general, along with her fake family. Except Caitlyn. I like Caitlyn. I don't watch 'Keeping up with the Kardashians', by the way.

Before all of you start saying she isn't a singer- she made a single called jam (turn it up) and it was pretty awful...

Just heard Jam (Turn It Up)...yeah, that song alone qualifies her enough to be higher on this list than Taylor Swift. Hell, Rebecca Black only made two songs and she's higher than Taylor.

She made one song for charity and yall consider her a singer, smh. Get her off this list - anewman
