  • Serena

    I didn’t know Kanye West was in Anchorman 2. I won’t go to it then. I didn’t see the first one anyway. His kid will be just as ugly & untalented as her parents. Kim & Kanye are 2 idiots who truly deserve each other.

    i got so hyped-up reading xtina on top.. what a mislead of me.

    my list goes..


  • Lisa

    One Direction maybe?

  • Rrodriguez0209

    GAGA all the way!! she brought out some real POP music. this year!! :)

  • kailani

    the hell is bruno mars??

  • She Stinks!

    JHO Bag is #10? What a joke. That tired old has been could never sing, and still can’t. She is pure trash.

  • Kiley

    JT and Beyoncé should have been in the top three. What a joke. And Miley may be more talked about, but not so much for her music.

  • Anne

    Adele destroys Beyonce in record sales, Taylor Swift album and concerts sales exceed Beyonce’s .

    Madonna has 2 world tours in the top 10 highest grossing , Beyonce doesn’t even have one. Madonna’s last 2012 world Tour was the highest grossing of the year 305 million for 88 shows and her Sticky and Sweet tour 2008, 407 million 85 shows, while Beyonce’s ” I am ” 2009 world tour grossed 115 dates made 110million… While the same year Britney Spears 2009 Circus , 97 dates , 137 million, Lady Gaga , Born This Way world tour 181 million 98 dates. Rihanna Diamonds world tour, 140 million 98 dates.

    Beyonce doesn’t even have one world tour in the top 20 .

    Besides Lady Gage world record sales over 8 million for her “born this way” , Beyonce last album 4 , didn’t sell 1/3 of those numbers.

    Rihanna billboard top number one hit artist, Katy Perry had 5 top number one hits in one album. Beyonce hasn’t had a number one hit in more then 5 years.

    And I’m just comparing her to women artists … bands US, Rolling Stone, Cold Play, Bon Jovi, Springsteen, The Police, just to name a few , destroy her in world tour grosses , their in line with what Madonna earns about 3 times as much as Beyonce , artists Timberlake, Eminin in record sales exceed Beyonce’s .

    Beyonce’s may have quite a few Grammy’s but there all in Soul , R&B .. She has never won Album of the year or Record of the year.

    Beyonce publicity works on hype , but the actual numbers show she is not even in the top 10 of album or concert grosses artist or critical acclaim.

  • Oh Yeah!!!

    @Anne: Aww Anne, Bitter much? You are such a Closet Bey Fan! LOL!

  • Sayer

    @Anne: Taylor has NOT sold more records than Beyonce, according to the RIAA. Beyonce is #4 or #5 in the last 10 years, while Swift is # 6 or. Internationally speaking, Swift is NOT all that popular. She’s only popular in America.

    Besides, the list is based on comments, searches for the artist, etc.

  • http://true EAST ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!

    You go girl! Miley #1 !!!

  • Thoughts

    Blacks and.redneckzss. Social engineering.propaganda finest. Feel dumbed down by the NWO agenda yet? Notice intelligence and common sense never.come.up? Revisionist history and nonsense and no talents is the order.of every single day…. Monarch programming.

  • Renzo

    GWEN STEFANI is the best !!! <3

  • Monae

    The only reason why Miley is number one is because of her damn antics. There was so much more that should have been giving to all the other artists & you gave her the #1 spot because she twerked on a married man & was completely naked in her “Wrecking Ball” video directed by a perv? I can NOT with this site.

  • Mallory


    Agreed! So glad someone said it. The thing is that NO ONE actually takes Miley serious because everything she has done has been a total trainwreck–hey if a girl wants to be sexy fine, but BE SEXY! I mean who is Miley, a BOOTLEG RIHANNA!?? Miley just looks like a bucked tooth horse, sticking out a smelly crusted tongue..NOT SEXY–so it all becomes just very laughable. I for one can’t take Miley seriously because twerking has been a dance YEARS before Miley decided to sit at home those 2 years she was irrelevant (after Hannah Montana) and practiced learning how to twerk. If I didn’t have the image in my head of her sitting behind some laptop watching youtube videos on How To Twerk on replay I maybeeeee could take her seriously…maybe. But then again there’s the horse mouth and the crusted tongue, and the a** shaking with NO A** that make me say forget it, try again Miley?

  • SS

    Nice to see Lana here.

  • zara

    wait, selena gomez made it to number 2 and demi lovato didn’t even make the list? i say, this list is complete bullshit.

  • Joyerz

    It’s Britney, Bitch!! she’s Legendary!! but im wondering why Demi Lovato didn’t make it the to the list? she’s awesome too!

  • Monae

    @Mallory: Hahaha! I love you! This is my exact point!

  • Moni

    It kills me that these so called haters have all the stats on the artist the supposedly hate. Who has the time to research just to prove a point. Does that out money in your pocket? When it does let me know. Thx
