I still can't figure out why she's so popular :/ Her songs are average even childish and annoying sometimes,
her voice is veryyyy average and even her looks are average.
Too many to list. XD
Rihanna: Her stuff is so repetitive! She wasn't too bad when she first started, but now her stuff is pretty much always about love or sex and always has the same annoying clapping beat in every song
Beyonce: Her vocals are decent but she sings flat a lot and her versions of other people's songs are bad.. Ex: Etta James' "At Last, " and Lee Greenwood's "Proud to be an American. " She does not have as strong a voice as she would like people to believe she does.
Madonna: she's not a good singer, she can just do a good show and dance, that's why people like her.
Taylor Swift: Nothing special, nothing bad, cliche lyrics, average range.
Chris Brown: He whines on every track. Can't hold a candle to Trey or Usher.
Selena Gomez: Selena can't sing - She's autotuned to sound natural. She can dance, act and has a pretty face which is why her fans are so protective over her. But the truth is that she can't sing and that's that.
Kanye West: Most of his raps are ghost written.
Nicki Minaj: Repeats the same words as passes them off as lyrics because she can't really rhyme. Has copied a lot of little Wayne's style.
Britney Spears: who, like Madonna, has made a career out of catchy pop songs and sex appeal, without a great voice.
Coldplay: way too heavily innflunced by U2 and Chris Martin's vocals are weak and messy.
Janet Jackson: relies on sex appeal and dancing to cover up for her lack of voice and range.
I know some people might (or have) said Beyonce, but she has worked hard to get where she is and she has a lot of ACTUAL talent. She is an amazing performer, an amazing voice and she is also a black R&B/Pop singer who made it to the top. Respect to her. People have also dissed Michael Jackson and said he's overrated, but I disagree with that as well. He is a legend and no one can ever replace the King of Pop.
Now, there is at least one song from each artist I listed above that are overrated to me that I like. I won't deny that. Even so, it's mostly because they have a catchy beat and it doesn't mean they are actually that great of a song. I have heard spectacular songs with real meaning and real heart and soul put into them. The words are beautiful. Sure, a song might have a great message or whatever, but Shake It Off is hardly that amazing of a song. I love the song, don't get me wrong. It's my anthem when I'm feeling down, but it's mainly the beat that keeps things alive, not the lyrics.
Honestly, most pop singers (especially these days) are overrated. Most of them have average voices enhanced with autotune. Everything you said about T-Swift is spot on. The reason why she is so amazing to people is because she is the epitome of what we have been told to believe is "beautiful." She is white, tall, with blonde hair and blue eyes. She's "perfection." Truth is, she's just another average white girl, but with money and fame, she's just oh so much more than that. ***Not bashing on white people.***
There's sooooo many that are overrated :) The one that came to my mind right now is Ellie Goulding. She can't actually sing. I saw like videos of her trying to sing live and she can't do it She has a voice that's super weak but it sounds decent with a edm beat and that's the only reason she's famous. But it only works if she's in the studio and she can basically whisper in the microphone and then they raise the volume :P.
Beyonce... and Meghan Trainor.
I used to like Meghan Trainor until I realized that the songs she wrote makes no sense. She always said that the music she writes is about her and how she feels. So you want your 'Dear Future Husband' to be okay with your weight because you're 'All About That Bass' but a man better not ever approach you because you'll just tell him 'No'? The fuck? That doesn't make any sense.
The Beatles... any of The Beatles. I know they are supposed to be this legend that we all love but I absolutely hate everything they sing.
is this a thread of "name chintita's favorite musicians"? lmfao i like jb [purpose <3], ariana grande [love 'into you'], nicki minaj [best], beyonce [she's good], 1D [decent] etc etc
only ones i don't like are t swift and katy perry
in my opinion many popular pop singers are overrated... but it's also not my kind of music/entertainment
I don't really listen to those so I can't point one out
Well, she's actually a very good stuff writer. When she was a kid, she won a national poetry competition.
But I think the most overrated, not singer but musician is the insane clown posse. All they do is try to offend people.
I agree with you about her songwriting and her voice. But I do think she's a beautiful girl, and I think that explains at least part of her popularity.
Most of the popular singers today are waaaaaay overrated.
Beyonce... after leaving Destiny's Child she's been just meh.
Noooooo!! I love TSwift!
I think Beyonce is suuuuper overrated.
Taylor Swift eh she's boring to me but kudos for trying but i'm not the biggest fan.
GAG is going to kill me for this but... Frank Sinatra.
I mean, his daughter has a voice just as good as his, while her lyrics have a much deeper meaning.
Beyonce. She just steals her style from overseas singers who aren't known like American singer and brands it.
For female singers, mine would be Selena Gonez
For male singers, mine would be Adam Levine.
well she's hot not a great body but very pretty indeed, never liked her song and i never thought her voice was something , but people like her.
They're talented, but nothing to scream about.
Barry Mcguire he is not as good as people say he is.
I don't like Taylor Swift either.
I think Justin Bieber is overrated too.
beyonce. J. Lo. They both suck and made millions... sex sells, not talent
There is none. Taylor swift is not average in anything.
I like Taylor Swift. 😛
I think that Ariana Grande is overrated tbh
I agree Taylor Swift is sooo overrated.
Katy perry too her voice is weak in my opinion.
One direction and yes people do say they can sing 😑
Miley Cyrus. And Nikki Minah
Tay swift, beyonce, rhianna
Agreed 110% with everything you said!
Naah, I like her :p
Wildest Dreams ftw
Taylor Swift for sure
Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Adele, all of these
Nikki Minjja, Justin Beiber, Taylor swift.
Most are way overrated.
Yeah taylor and katy perry
Is she really that great?
Beyonce... in my opinion.
