This is a difficult one. First, I have to admit that the person I pick can actually be considered a musician, so Kanye West is out, as he's really just a celebrity (due to his crazy antics) who claims to make music. (This also removes Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Hillary Duff from the running).

So, who is someone who is very popular but doesn't necessarily deserve to be as popular as they are? I guess my first instinct would be to say Green Day or Radio Head. I don't really have a problem with either of those bands, but they do seem to get a lot more hype than seems necessary -- their music isn't extremely original, after all.

It also seems that almost all of the American Idol winners get a lot more record sales than they really deserve. The only one who seems to be worth anything is Kelly Clarkson, who fought the record company to have more creative rights to her third and subsequent albums.

So I guess my answer is: Green Day, Radio Head, and all American Idol winners (with the exception of Kelly Clarkson). (Also note that I say WINNERS, not finalists. Almost all of the AI finalists that have actually done something worth a damn have been runners up)

I looked at answers that other people gave, and I saw a lot of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga votes (as is to be expected), but I also saw a lot of votes for Michael Jackson and Bob Dylan, and I have to agree with both of those.
