Worst Pop Artists

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera, known professionally as Ariana Grande, is an American singer and actress . She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom, "Victorious". She later become a singer ...read more.

Don't get me wrong, Ariana has an amazing vocal gift, but she's horrible as a pop star and someone people look up to. She can barely enunciate her words and her songs are so hard to understand and hear because of that. But the worst thing about her is her personality. She doesn't treat her fans and others below her with the respect and kindness that they deserve. She's always in the news for her stuck up, arrogant behavior.

She licked and spat on a donut that people were about to purchase and eat! And then she was rude to the donut shop worker and told her friends that she hated America and Americans. And in her apology, she told her fans that she couldn't stand obesity. Also, a few fans who won a contest to meet her flew thousands of miles to go see her at a private meet and greet. Not only was she late, but she only spent a few minutes with those fans. She ended up forcing them to delete all the pictures that they had taken with her.

As a pop star and a role model for ...more

She acts like she's an adorable little 15 year old girl. She can hit pretty impressive notes, yes. But she sucked up to all that pop garbage. Changing her appearance and music over the period. When she was on rising fame, she looked, sounded and acted great. But she's to stupid to be herself. High tones don't mean anything if you're gonna feature a rapper/hip hop artist on every one of her songs with repetitive chorus!

22 R5 R5 R5 is an American pop rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 2009. The band consists of lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Ross Lynch, Riker Lynch, Rocky Lynch, Rydel Lynch, and Ellington Ratliff.

WORST. BAND. EVER. Cannot sing to save a infant's life. Can't really play any instruments (which they pretend to have the ability to), have no ability whatsoever to write music (Come on, get loud! Nananananananana! That was the lyrics to their most popular song! ) If that's not generic to you, I've given up on humanity. When you look at the crap that's passing off as music nowadays and compare it to the real stuff like Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Queen, Led Zeppelin, and AC/DC, you start to wonder why music is faltering. I know exactly why! The expectations of fans and studios everywhere is lowered because of autotune and computerized audio-editing. I could have never sung or played an instrument in my life and I could become a superstar in today's music industry.

Point here: R5 is awful. Please, I hope that talk about them breaking up wasn't just talk!

Another fake Disney band

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.

I'm sick and tired of hearing her break up songs and "Shake it off" on the dumb radio.

Almost literally EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HER SONGS is about breaking up with her stupid boyfriends

So obsessed with boys and ex boyfriends! This girl really needs to get a boy free life and when she gets jealous and breaks she should cry herself a river,build a bridge and get over it! Fact!

lame

25 Black Eyed Peas Black Eyed Peas The Black Eyed Peas is an American hip hop group, consisting of rappers will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and singer Fergie.

That was the worst Superbowl Halftime Show I've ever heard. Horrible singers when they don't have the autotune helping. - VADERtheIMPALER

They only made that one song, with the name I forget. That's the only thing that got them popular. They were only relevant until about 2008, where their poularity was at its peak. Even then, not everyone listened to them and they lost popularity in 2009 and 2011. They aren't even cool anymore, they're just so yesterday and nobody really would have payed attention to them if it wasn't for that one song. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Worst lyrics of any band I listen to. - bornmurphed

Should be higher. - Thifer20

Worst ever. Put something into your ears or she'll make you deaf. Can't strike the right note. Not even one.

BBHMM was jut repetitive words with no real tune. SHe used to actually sing

Hang on she did "work! " Ohmigosh she is like so not deserving of being here!

27 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 .

It has been proven that she can't sing because she has been caught lips syncing at her concerts. Basically, she is getting paid for using auto tune to disguise her horrendous voice. I can't stand anything about her.

I might be biased as someone who grew and still grows on Disney Channel and stuff like that, but honestly, she is one of the best artists of today - ProPanda

At least she's yummy.

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

I can't believe there was no Rebecca Black on the list and I had her as an 'item'.

Friday is the number 1 most annoying song on so many lists

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

Anywhere from the lack of real instrumentation to her attempts at "singing" should place her at number one on this list.

she is a terrible singer and obviously doesn't know what real music is, but come on! They put ABBA, Michael Jackson, and Eminem on here? WTF?

Kesha is AUTOTUNED GARBAGE! All of her songs have this unnatural metallic beat and stupid lyrics with absolutely no meaning. I don't know who put that girl on the map and told her she was special, because she's just another dumb artist that doesn't know how horrible her voice sounds. Even with enhancements she sounds like R2D2!

A good example of fake music

What? Maybe because he's not even a pop artist? The only thing whoever put Em here knows is that they know nothing...

Eminem is the best! Top ten peeps take him off this list, not even a pop artist.

Why on earth is Eminem on the worst pop artist list?

Why? Not Adele! Her voice and lyrics are very good. At least she puts some effort in what she does.

Overplayed and overrated as a singer and "songwriter. "

Wow. Not only is Adele in the list, but at #2? I've lost all hope in humanity now. - Mcgillacuddy
