7 Pop Stars Critics Say Are Wildly Overrated

A reasonable hypothesis about being a celebrity would be that if someone is super famous, then they'll be extremely talented. Unfortunately, that hypothesis doesn't always prove to be true.

For some, today's biggest pop stars might have have the popularity, but when it comes to talent, they're lacking. When on Redditor asked for opinions on who the most overrated music artist was, music lovers were clamoring to share their opinions.

Music lovers took to the comments with their answers for the most wildly overrated musical celebrities.

“Much of her actual released music is sung by ghost singers,” answered u/fponee. “Ashanti and Christina Milian in particular did a lot of it.”

Jennifer Lopez

u/z4k4m4n suggested, “DJ Khaled.” However, u/Darkdragon_98 disagreed: “No he isn't overrated. No one is rating him highly as an artist. He is rated pretty fairly for how s*** he is.”

DJ Khaled

“This is correct,” added u/fobmanx. “I don't think Drake is awful per se. He has some catchy songs. But people put him on the GOAT tier pedestal which is just absurd.”


u/Notrobertmueller25 responded, “Bieber. The pendulum has swung hard in the other direction after years of unfair hate he got. But I’ve seen so many people be like “I might not like him but he’s super talented.” He’s fine.”

Justin Bieber

“Glad to see her on the list,” replied u/MushroomPowerful3440. “She is a decent singer, good dancer but what makes her different is…. branding, just branding. Few bangers in her career, I give her that, but that's it.”
