Let’s face it, when it comes to today’s music landscape, some of the top selling artists are so mediocre, they wouldn’t even make it through auditions on “Showtime At The Apollo.” Who cares about carrying a tune when you can make headlines wearing a dress made out of raw meat? Yes we’re talking to you Lady GaGa. The folks over at Madame Noire have rounded up some of the lamest singers who for some inexplicable reason, found fame and fortune based on absolutely nothing.
I’m not going to lie, this chick had a few bangers that I was bouncing my head to in the car (“Rain on Me,” “Baby”), but still, we all know her voice was a bit too paper thin. However, when homegirl first dropped, her album was #1 on the Billboard 200, going triple platinum selling six million copies (that’s huge by today’s industry sales), she was awarded the Soul Train Aretha Franklin “Entertainer of the Year” award in 2002, and won a Grammy for her self-titled album. But still…I mean, if the video for “Happy” doesn’t justify why she was highly overrated, I just don’t know what would.
