15 Artists We Love To Hate

lovehate

Look, there's nothing wrong with being a hater. Why should we like everything? Why should we always be nice about everyone?

The idea that almost any criticism can be batted away with a casual "they just hatin' tho" is a ridiculous notion that starts us down the path towards never being able to debate or discuss anything, toward the blind and unquestioning acceptance of whatever the highest powered marketing exec has decided will be the next big hit. And that's not somewhere we want to end up.

Even artists we love will mildly annoy us sometimes, make us cringe and shake our fists in good-natured outrage, but this list collects the ones that we bitch, moan, complain, and whine about most frequently. Here are 15 artists we well and truly love to hate.

    For the crime of loving 93% of this list, I hang my head, and shall show myself out. I now realize I have been an active user of the wrong site for nearly two years.

    I came to this conclusion about a year or two ago, not long after his singles started charting again post-Rihanna-beating.. Nothing can stop Chris Brown. He is literally a force in the music industry that cannot be stopped.

    Pitbull is a lost case. When you listen the name “pitbull” you already hate the guy.

    Thats a good thing, Pitbull is not on the list. Because he has some good music so he is an accepted artist, period.

    The mainstream radio and simpleton, no thanks to flo rider, ruined levels, you can’t blame the guy for a decent track.
