Good Music, Bad Reputation

We all love music, but sometimes not the artists. These are 3 artists that have good music but bad reputations.

Doja cat:

Doja Cat, a rising pop star, recently faced some controversy with her fans. She received backlash for telling her fans to get off their phones and get a job. Fans felt unappreciated when she said she didn’t know them. Her account was deleted from Instagram, but fans have since come back. Some speculate that she may be using the controversy to advertise her new rap era.


Lizzo has been in a recent scandal revolving around her workplace and how she treats her dancers. The dancers have claimed that Lizzo made them do inappropriate things against their will or out of peer pressure. Even though Lizzo is famous for her body positivity she was reported to be a body-shaming dancer. Lizzo has surprisingly sued her dancers back for false claims and asked the judge to throw out her dancer’s lawsuit. However, there is video proof of Lizzo harassing her dancers. It is unclear as to what happened after.

Kanye West:

Kanye West is a very controversial artist. First in 2009 with a very public feud with Taylor Swift at the VMA’s and more. Last year he claimed to have lost 2 billion dollars in one day and still didn’t care. After his fallout with Kim Kardashian, he had reportedly gone rogue and ran for president. He is also very controversial due to his comments on race.
