Kroeger is producing Avril Lavignes album... now she is going to sound like Nickelback


It's not like Avril Lavigne is good in the first place. So it doesn't really matter to me. I just don't think when someone is so hated, they can be considered overrated.

The Kardashians are a perfect example as they have a high volume of fans when compared to haters, but the reasoning behind them being popular is not really valid. Which in turn would make them pretty overrated, one could argue that Kanye West is now borderline overrated after his recent antics.

Kanye West, "I'm mf'n Kanye West" is definitely overrated.

Even back in the day when Nickelback came out I thought they were overrated. I don't know how they became so popular ecspecially in the US.

Putting people on pedestals and paying them millions of dollars because they can pretend to be someone else really well or wrote a catchy tune is ridiculous.

All of them and none of them.

I generally don't pay attention to people I don't give a rats ass about so people like Kanye don't bother me however to say somebody like him is over rated is to say he's not as talented as his popularity suggests. While I'm no fan this is wrong. A guy like Kanye west is incredibly talented. Most of what he does is so carefully calculated so that people will pay attention to it, and most people do. Nickleback is just awful but I don't think they receive much praise so I'm not sure how they can be over rated.

I haven't really seen anybody mentioned in this thread that would really be considered over-rated in a general sense. I'll put Milli Vanilli in 1988 as my pick.

Every swimsuit, Victoria 's Secret models out there (looking at especially Kate Upton). I have all the respect for high fashion but I find this to be BS. It's archaic in a world where people have instant access to porn

Zooey Deschanel can't act and is a one trick pony

All the ones hot in tabloids

Paul Rudd, those Twilight guys

Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson (internet has a hard on for these two)

I should sleep.

I enjoy Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson, as well as Zooey Deschanel.

Justin Bieber has plenty of talent. Its his studio/producers that take that talent and turn it into much for pubescent girls. The guy is a good singer, and had he been discovered in his early 20s his music would have been quite different.

What a ???? joke. Benning is the worst GM in the NHL. I can't believe this guy is actually this stupid. This imbecile is going to drive this team into the ???? ground.

They all did an excellent job. Jacki Weaver was quite good as well IMO. Hell, even Chris Tucker served up a decent, low key (albeit smaller) performance. Who knew he was capable of such subtlety!? :lol:

Brittany spears - trash. No talent. Lip synchs
Ben stiller - I just don't find him funny
LMFAO- name of the group describes it all
Will ferrel- not funny, boring and lame

If you like any of these not trying to offend anyone lol

Nailed it with this post. For Ben Stiller and Will ferrel they just look funny(their eyes) but they aren't actually funny.

Who am I to say? I mean, they're rich and famous and I'm not, so they are obviously doing something right.

Unless people are wanting to see a reality show about a 31 year old man, celebrating his 10 year wedding anniversary, all while working at a well paying, low stimulating job, I've got nothing to offer that's much better.
