Worst Pop Artists

The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claiming he was Part-Indian) and he is Christian . He is the son of an author, Pattie Mallet . ...read more.

Justin Bieber just sounds like a 6-year-old girl. I don't understand any of his fans. And why bother making a movie about this guy?

I was in a party in our school (a year ago), once. I was there to change the song, CD, whatever. But then, ten girls wanted me to play Justin Bieber. I didn't know much about him, so I thought "OK". But after playing the song 3 seconds 20 people walked to my desk and desired changing the song with some swear words I'm not gonna repeat here. I changed the song.

And you call this music?!

Thank you finally this piece gets on one of these "worst of" lists thanks to all of you who voted for this cookie cutter pop scum bag. And I agree mj should definitely not be on this list.

He sucks ass and his music is total, incomparable crap. nevertheless, he has an army of fans who has crap where it used to be brain. he sounds like a 12-year-old girl and his lyrics are only for stupid teenage girls who dreams about love and other crap. so if I organize a party and you'll try to play Justin Bieber songs - get ready to get a bottle full of pee poured over your head.

He just got banned from China for rude behaviour against his fans!

2 Britney Spears Britney Spears Britney Jean Spears is an American singer and actress. Born in McComb, Mississippi, and raised 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 and going on to become a pop superstar ...read more.

Strongly dislike her. I do have some respect for the woman because she is still a relevant pop icon after 17+ years in the industry. But she's long run her course and her music lacks meaning and quality.

Her songs are horrible and no matter how much she auto tunes her voice she still sounds awful.

Look, she isn't garbage, but I wouldn't call her good either. I do like Make Me though - ProPanda

I hate her,like she is literally the worst pop star of all time how do people like her and how does she sell records?!

3 Kidz Bop Kids

Why would I want to hear an even worse version of already bad songs, or even good songs? How they have twenty something albums is just shameful

Who buys this? Stop giving them money to make more!

Kidz bop makers songs that are already horrible- worse! Most of the kids on there are teenagers so they can say a few swear words anyways. We don't need anymore censored garbage! If you Rly can't tolerate a cuss word, there are ample censored versions of songs available. We don't need these sell outs!

They legit say there is no swearing and then end up swearing...
also, they could find some more talented kids who aren't so nasaly

Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

She is even worse than Justin Bieber. While many people on this list deserve to be here, Nicki Minaj is one of the worst I know of.

She's not only an insult to RAP culture, but also to the female gender and African American community. The worst part is she know it and she knowingly embraces it.

She is awful she is a little bit talented

Talentless hack, utter moron, detestable, barely human...

6 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an 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 ...read more.

It pains me that people and bands like them are popular nowadays. To be honest, their music isn't terrible, but it's the kind of music that any 5 guys can do... better. Obviously, they're only popular because of their attractiveness to any girl who hasn't become an adult yet. And I wish the popularity of artists wasn't entirely about "sex appeal," because there is a lot more to music than that. Just goes to show that the less effort put into the pop industry, the more popular it is.

These group of boys are horrendous! It annoys me how many 12 year old girls are crazy over there music. There's nothing special about it. Just a bunch of mediocre 20 year old guys who think they know the ins and outs of love but don't. Zayn was absolutely right for leaving these guys in the dust, for their whole music act is horrible and meaningless.

One Direction stole from many bands, and they are musical cyanide. Someone tried comparing them to Gorillaz before. Obviously that person is retarded.

A lot of people are out over their songs!

! Katy so shouldn't be here! Like she is the best pop star in the universe! And she has the most followers in twitter! My favourite song in the world is California gurls and I didn't spell girls wrong that is how she spells it in the song and my second favourite song is International smile! Katy Perry I defend you strongly!

One of the fakest artists ever. She got her big beak from singing gospel music and coming from a strict Christian background... Then 10 years later she comes out with highly inappropriate songs such as "I kissed A Girl" and showy, skimpy outfits including whip cream bras on stage. It's very

What is Katy doing on here!?! She is so the best ever my fave song in the world is California gurls! Whoever put her on here is very mad!

Really? Katie Perry? I like her. I have two of her songs on my apple music. (Roar,Firework).

This Little Madonna wanna be. I can't understand why people suddenly like a bisexual lady with auto tune. There's only one guy I know who likes her and he's been to a lunatic asylum.

Honestly after Madonna there has been just too many fake followers who think they're unique. First Britney Spears, then Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry and now this fat-voices Lady Loser.

Absolutely ridiculous. Doesn't have a real voice and only gets attention due to her infamous outrageous outfits that she feels the need to wear to every red carpet event.

Just a awful voice. If you hear "you and I" and see her she is the living medusa. She is even worse then Ke$ha.

She is the best
