Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber definitely has a large amount of fans, or "beliebers" if you will, but he's also considered one of the most overrated superstars among critics. Do you agree?

  2. Taylor Swift

    Taylor Swift

    It seems like every time there's a music awards show, Taylor Swift snags at least one of the biggest prizes. Her fans may think she deserves it, but do you?

  3. Lady Gaga

    Lady Gaga

    Lady Gaga is definitely adored by all her "little monsters," but there are also those who think the "Born This Way" singer is a huge drama queen and overly theatrical.

  4. Katy Perry

    Katy Perry

    Katy Perry recently became the first female ever to win the coveted award of most #1 singles from the same album, tying only with Michael Jackson. Do her songs deserve as much love as they're getting?

  5. Kanye West

    Kanye West

    Kanye West isn't the most modest artist out there...especially since he's recently claimed "The Throne" along with Jay Z. But does he have the jams to back up his cockiness -- or is he still overrated?

Justin Bieber has "beliebers," Lady Gaga has "little monsters," and Taylor Swift has...that surprising look on her face every time she wins an award. Yeah, you know what we're talking about. But unfortunately, being popular in mainstream music doesn't always mean you're the most talented artist out there. In fact, we'd venture to say that the majority of people actually think some of the "hottest" stars are overrated.

We've tried to come up with a good list of some of those musical artists. Don't get us wrong: we're not saying the people on this list are totally talentless. We're just saying they get a lot more love than we think they should. Give some other musicians a chance to shine, will ya?

So, from Bieber to Gaga to Ms. Swift, help us out in declaring one of these superstars the most "overrated musical artist" of 2011.

    Bieber shouldn't even BE up there. He doesn't make music, he makes 3-minute long streams of noise combined with his screechy chipmunk voice, sells products with his name on it (make-up being one of those products btw), and somehow makes a PROFIT from all this.

    This is the one that has GOT TO GO!! At least the others have talent!!

    bieber planet anymore

    For me, there's nothing special about JB. His voice sounds like every other pop-star today to me. Yeah he's cute, but I've seen WAY hotter musicians. But that's just me.

    If you disagree with what I have to say, please do it respectfully. It's not that hard to turn off Caps-Lock, and to think of a logical argument.

    I don't hear much of Kanye, so in my mind he's not even in the running.
    Gaga and Perry, I think they stand out enough and kind of have 'their own thing' going entertainment and music-wise (kind of) enough.
    Bieber... just like every other boy singer. Overrated.

    Lady Gaga
    I personally love taylor swift becuz she makes songs i can relate to. And justin bieber..well..hes not my favorite but i do like some of his songs. Katy perry is..ok. And kanye west is underated. But Lady Gaga, i do not like her. Who can like her after her makn a song bout thanking the guy who put jesus on the cross. Yep, i hate her. And her song "born this way". She wasnt frikkin born gay!!!!!! Im not judging any1 who is. Trust me.. But my point is. Shes not a music artist..shes jus wierd

    Ok so taysway & Bieber aren't exactly super talented, but taylor has a lot of girl fans my age because her songs are so relatable, and no one had really done that before. The biebs has got a whole team of ppl helping him somehow come out as sexy, plus he's a real treat to young girls. Kanye is UNDERATED and Katy and her people just played it well with het new album...I'm a fan of hers. Lady Gaga...ughh

    In my day they called it Bubble gum music. Bieber is just a random teen heart throb with no real talent or musical aesthetics. All of the above would apply here, but I think Miss Gaga at least has a grasp on creativity, and theatrix.
  • jmitch126 2011/12/13 22:08:05
    Katy Perry
    Difficult decision, but Katy Perry! Really none of the people on this list have true talent, but Katy Perry kind of pisses me off more-so than the others - simply because of all her singles that play on nearly every radio station for months on end. Honestly, Katy Perry is the reason I quit listening to the radio!
  • Jonny T... jmitch126 2013/06/21 16:27:48

    the reason why shes on the radio all the time is because she is just simply amazing and has awesome songs

    I was against Bieber from day one.Unfortunately, many of my friends caught 'Bieber Fever' I'm so glad they got tired of him and that the dark days filled with screeching chipmunk voices are over.

    gaga is great while she lasts, and the rest are OK, but west is out of my sphere of appreciation.
