Worst Things About Rap and Pop Singersmaddyparrot22 Think of all the people you hate and bring out your hatred. Just kidding, I want to hear real opinions. The Music Industry used to have really good music, now we have junk. State your opinion fairly and good day!
The Top Ten
This whole list is bull. Pop and rap are two totally different genres. Some of this stuff is true for both, but there are a lot rappers whos lyrics actually have meaning (Eminem, 2Pac, Biggie, etc. ) Pop is the worst kind of music besides dubstep. It is pointless, repetitive, and has no feeling to it. Michael Jackson is probably the only good pop singer. - gelatinbeastworm
The lyrics are not only bad, sometimes they don't make any sense at all.
And rap is a music full of verbal expletives (if ever I call this thing music). - Kiteretsunu
The beats are good but the lyrics are terrible, that's the thing with today's music. - venomouskillingmachine
Lmfao have once stated that they cite led zeppelin as a personal influence.V 2 Comments
This is definitely the worst thing. Music has nothing to do with looks. Perhaps with style, but not looks. - keyson
I don't care if any of the modern female singers look good. I only wanna hear the talent and the lyrics.
Oh gosh. Nowadays it's all about the looks. Like how much people say how hot Miley Cyrus and katy perry R. I don't care if any of these people look hot, what I care about is how they sound good. Looks don't matter ok? Looks, fame, money, fortune, none of that means jack squat! What really does matter is your talent. How good you are in whatever you do. That's what really matters.
Pfft. And haters only care about their personalities. "OH TAYLOR SWIFT SUCKS, SHE BREAKS UP TOO MUCH! " "OH MILEY CYRUS MAKES DUMB VIDEOS, SCREW THE FACT SHE CAN SING". Yeah, it's stupid. - DCfnafV 2 Comments
You know that one song where the guy says "Grab somebody sexy, tell 'em "Hey". The synth riff in the corus makes you want to kick a door down. - Caleb9000
Aww, stop complaining and just sit in your room and listen to Metal. - DCfnaf
I can think of a lot of pop/rap songs with horrible, horrible melodies, but these are the ones in which I think have the worst melodies I have EVER heard.
Turn Down For What-DJ Snake
Stupid Hoe-Nicki Minaj
Pound The Alarm-Nicki Minaj
Swagger Jagger-Cher Lloyd
Beez In The Trap-Nicki Minaj
Did It On Em-Nicki Minaj
6 Foot, 7 Foot-Lil Wayne
Sexy And I Know It-LMFAO
Lil Wayne is not and never will be the next 2pac. 2pac really did live a hard life growing up. I'm sure lil Wayne didn't struggle that much growing up.
The paper even said why one direction is better than the Beatles. I literally lose my mind after hearing that.
Some of them don't even make sense. like the music video to katy perry's California gurls takes place in candyland. not California. what is the point? This really irritates me when something feels incomplete like this.
Only one music videos is not like this is from the Beatles, glee, mj and from frozen soundtrack even les miserables - megasuperxx678
We are one of the most hardworking countries. We try to make sure that other countries have enough supply and money. So forget what you said.
This is probably why north korrea hates us so much. We have all this power and we're wasting it on people like Trinidad james.
Miley uses it but doesn't need it. Katy can actually sing without it too. Even Meghan could probably sing with out it - DCfnaf
The biggest abuser of this is t-pain.
You know what really ticks me off, I'm so sick and tired of people saying that metal has no talent and is all nothing but screaming and worshiping the devil. Don't accept any of that as fact because it's not fact! You can dislike metal all you want but don't go around saying that metal has no meaning and no talent. There are metal bands that sing about history, politics, fantasy, love stories, and most songs that are pretty much about being happy with life! Ohh that's so satanic. NOT. There's even Christian metal bands (bands like skillet, disciple, we as human, and demon hunter). And not all metal is screaming loud noise. Heck even I don't like the bands that scream and growl! I only like to listen to the bands that are not growling and are talking straight. So for all of you who think metal has no meaning and no talent, wake up because metal does have meaning and talent.
Nah, nobody says that, metal is literally everywhere on here and everyone here dies for it. You are full of crap. - DCfnaf
For those of you close-minded people who still think metal is all just screaming and takes no talent at all, go listen to Mana by Equilibrium and tell me if that song is nothing but screaming and takes absolutely no talent at all.
I'm sick and tired of people saying that rap and hip hop is all nothing but doing drugs, killing and raping people. It's not true! I mean there are rap songs like that but rap and hip hop did talk about positive messages and other important stuff back in the 90s. Where tupac, biggie, nas, and easy e exploded under the scene. These modern rappers like lil Wayne, nicki minaj, drake, tyga, kreayshawn, big sean, and soulja boy are all killing the genre and giving it a bad name.
I somewhat agree, but not all rappers and pop singers do these bad stereotypes - MoldySock
Lady gaga is a big Madonna ripoff. and what kind of name is lady gaga? What, was goochy goochy goo too much of a name to take?
The reason for this is because they want people's money. Being overplayed on the radio is an easy way to get people with no taste in music to buy their songs. Artists who take their careers seriously remain anonymous because they care more about their music than becoming famous and earning money.
I suppose this is fairly true for many forms of music, but with pop and rap it's simply ridiculous. - PositronWildhawk
Don't some of them feel embarrassed to sing the bad songs they didn't write?
Katy perry dark horse? Jason derulo?
2 Chainz does this a lot.
Jay Sean, Pitbull, Nicki Minaj, Momoiro Clover (they stopped when Akari left), Akon, just to name a few.
The beat to Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby was not even made by vanilla ice. It was made by Queen's Under Pressure featuring David Bowie.
This just drives me insane.
The best example I can think of is ice ice baby by vanilla ice.
Another one I can think of is talk dirty by jason durulo.V 4 Comments
Not just modern pop and rap musicians, but websites as well. I'm not making this up. Noisey.com's list of The 123 Worst Musicians of All Time disses all of the classic artists from the past. And this is not for humor. They're being dead serious when they say these things. THIS IS REAL.
