The popular and celebrated are usually slandered by undercover fans who secretly adore them when no one’s around. Odd? Absolutely, but normal in a sheep-polluted society where mindless “followers” rarely stray away from the herd. Here are the artists many secretly love but pretend to hate. Take a look.
Future Vandross His Angel-kissed voice has brought millions closer to God yet legions of haters and non-believers remain. Seriously, how can you NOT point to the Heavens with tears in your eyes when you hear “Turn On The Lights?”
Beyonce Hating the Creolian Goddess of Negronia is everyone’s favorite new hobby but we doubt most people really feel this way. Yes, Bey Bey is painfully-boring, somewhat corny and self-obsessed but she DOES have undeniable jams.
Lil Wayne The gargoyle-faced attention slore’s last two albums went platinum in a week. “B*tches Love Me” recently went GOLD after only a month. “Karate Chop (Remix)” is the hottest record in the streets despite the “Emmitt Till” saga. But NO ONE likes Weezy anymore?
A$AP Rocky Rap’s androgynous “fashion killa” dresses like Charlotte Russe mannequins and rocks shimmery dresses and kilts (which isn’t “Hip-Hop”) BUT shocked everyone with his undeniable debut album “LongLiveA$AP.” Who knew?
Drake If everyone HATES Aubrey, the almond milk-blooded rapper why do you always see “Started from the Bottom--So you know it’s real--I’m just sayin, you can do better--YOLO” memes on Twitter/FB/Instagram? Somebody lyin.
Sisqo The Kevin Hart-sized weirdo is slandered like he wasn’t the extra-smedium, blonde-haired, super-zesty David Ruffin of his time. Without “The Thong Song” and his legendary “OOH-YEAHs” where would we be as a people?
French Montana There’s something strangely-alluring about the flashy special needs rapper who always looks like he’s in disguise. Worst rapper EVER, of all-time? He’s up there, but so completely terrible he’s enjoyable.
Plies The iconic hoodrat whisperer gave the ladies timeless weave removal soundtracks and blessed the fellas with classics like “Miss Pretty P.” How can you hate him?
Joe Budden The mermaid-kidnapping rapper-turnt-reality star is actually talented but his arrogance, drug fueled-insanity and bedazzled vests make you never want to admit this. Ever. Free Kaylin. Photo credit: Instagram
