# 1

So Britney Spears was the most paid out of all of them, had a hit # 1 song, launched a new perfume, helped launch a new toy product and was on TV every week and yet she didn’t even make the list. That makes perfect sense.

# 2

WHERE IS BRITNEY?!?! Flop list.

Flop list is a flop! XTINA isnt even in Billboard Top20..
How come she is bigger than Britney U idiot?
That’s why I rarely check this flop site…

# 4

@Shady: Read the title: most popular music acts of 2012 (keyword there is music). Britney made the most money because of her xfactor contract. This isn’t a post of highest paid celebrities of 2012.

# 5

Britney didn’t make any sort of impact in 2012 and is now an irrelevant artist after her stint on X-Factor. Money can’t buy you popularity.

# 6

Flopney pays radio to play her music. #fakepopularity

# 7

Christina is still a fat drunk clown no matter how much her people pay you to promote her, Jared.

LOTUS IS A FLOP > CHECKED
YOUR BODY IS A FLOP > CHECKED
ARMY OF LOVE IS A FLOP > CHECKED
COLLABS WITH PITBULL/BLAKE SHELTON ALSO A FLOP > CHECKED
EVEN MAX MARTIN CANT HELP HER CAREER

AND STUPID JARED STILL LISTED FLOPTINA AS ONE OF THE BIGGEST ACT 2012

Where is Britney F*cking Spears?!!?!?!?!

Why would Britney be on the list? She hasn’t done anything innovative in years and was overshadowed by Demi on X-Factor.

You guys clearly don’t understand how this list works..
It’s “JustJared.com’s” most popular music acts of 2012… Most “popular”
Musician’s who got the most blog views & comments … etc, etc things like that. Not who made the most money, or worked the hardest… chill out!!!

spice girls??? WTF?!?! Have you been under a rock for 5 years? Spice girls havent released a new song since 2007.

BRITNEY was a FLOP THIS YEAR.
HER TV SHOW X FACTOR FLOPPED AND WAS OVERSHADOW BY THE VOICE. THE SHOW OF CHRISTINA AGUILERA.
Britney was overshadow by DEMI ON X FACTOR.
Her single whit will.i.a flopped hard..it isnt even top 10 on billboard whit BIG PROMO.
SO SHE IS A FLOP.

Britney who? @ 12/25/2012 at 3:25 pm

lmfao at Britney being left out

Loved Madonnas concert tour. It was amazing.

beyonceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee <3

Lady Gaga looks like Alicia Keys.

just a list guys, not a big deal. but still find it hilarious how selena took a break from music and she still manages to make it high on the list and Britney didn’t. the power of Selena.

JLo!!!!! LOVE HER!! so happy she made the list, but why the Fu&k is Christina on the list??? her whole music career flopped this year. is this a joke?

yayyyyy demi was more in music scene than selena this year and #QueenSelena still beat demi!!!! that’s all that matter. love you selly g.

srsly JJ .. I’m starting to think you guys actually get paid off for your lists..

Where IS BRITNEY SPEARS. ????????

THIS SITE IS A FLOP , BRITNEY WAS ALL OVER THE MEDIA WITH X FACTOR FOR MONTHS!!!
THE SPICE GIRLS JUST DID THE OLYMPICS AND NOTHING MORE!!!!! AND THEY MADE THE LIST !??????
WTF JARED??? ?????????????

LMAO at Beyoncé being #1 while doing absoluetly NOTHING ! She didn’t perform , she did nothing except that I Was Here thing , that shows how boss she is , and you haters will deal , Rihanna being behind again is where she is supposed to be Navy ( Whitney passing got her #1 lets face it so I’m not considering her being the first )

Willow Smith more popular than Demi Lovato and Lana Del Rey more popular than Lady GaGa? Was a joke? I can’t laugh yet, where’s the punch line?

anonymous @ 12/25/2012 at 8:34 pm

This list is terrible!! Where’s Coldplay!?!!! They had a successful year touring–sold out arenas and stadiums for the most part!!

Also, I think Gotye should definitely have made this list. He had a breakthrough year with his hit song, and hopefully will continue to have more hit songs. His music is amazing!
