Top 5 Musicians Who Need to Get Their S*** Together

 
These stars really need to clear their heads and get back in the game. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top five musicians who need to get their shit together.
 
For this list, we’ll be looking at various very notable musicians who have found themselves in a lot of trouble, either financially, legally, or in the eyes of the public.

 
 

#5: Kanye West

 
While West has always been a bit of a character, the fame seems to have really gone to his head (Shocking, we know.). In 2015 alone, West almost repeated his famous Taylor Swift debacle with Beck, admitted to smoking something at the VMAs, and declared his supposed future run for president. In February 2016, he seemingly defended Bill Cosby on Twitter, to the disappointment of his fans. Later that year, he bizarrely referenced Jay-Z’s supposed “killers” at a concert, and pleaded for his life, and was eventually admitted for psychiatric evaluation. We sincerely hope that West gets better soon, because witnessing the decline of ‘Ye has been incredibly difficult.


#4: Robin Thicke


While Thicke has been around and moderately successful since the early 2000s, he finally reached the big time with the morally dubious hit “Blurred Lines,” which peaked at number one in over 25 countries. However, Thicke then split with his long-time partner Paula Patton, noting “I got a little too selfish, a little too greedy and a little too full of myself.” His follow-up album, Paula, was a massive critical and commercial bomb.Thicke and Pharrell Williams were later found guilty of copyright infringement, as they had allegedly plagiarized Marvin Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up.” We’ve barely heard from Thicke since, aside from his self-deprecating role in “Real Husbands of Hollywood”.



#3: Fergie


Fergie initially rose to prominence as a member of The Black Eyed Peas, before finding her own success as a solo artist. However, her 2017 album Double Dutchess was considered a huge critical and commercial disappointment, only briefly reaching #19 on the Billboard charts and failing to break the top twenty in any other countries. Her solo career took an even bigger hit on February 18, 2018, when she performed a flat and oddly sexual, rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner at the NBA All-Star game. The performance generated controversy and memes galore, and Fergie issued an apology, stating, “Clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone.” Now, that actually sounds right.


#2: Josh Homme


Josh Homme is a terrific guitarist and frontman, known for his band Queens of the Stone Age, but there’s no denying that the man has a fierce temper that gets him in a lot of trouble. In 2004, Homme was served with a restraining order after attacking frontman Blag Dahlia of The Dwarves, and had to attend anger management classes. He also drew a huge amount of criticism in 2008 when he went on a tirade against an unruly audience member and used homophobic language. Nearly a decade later, Homme assaulted a female photographer by kicking her in the face (he claimed he only kicked her camera into her face), and later apologized on Instagram. Classy.



#1: Marilyn Manson


Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has made a lot of headlines for his erratic behaviour. In November 2017, he controversially aimed a fake automatic rifle at his audience in San Bernardino, only two years after the city experienced a mass shooting. He then made a lot of people question his mental well-being after a show on February 15, 2018. Manson went on rambling tangents, spent ten minutes begging the crowd for applause, constantly stopped songs midway through, and eventually abruptly left the stage. Actress Charlyne Yi then accused Manson of having make sexist and racist remarks in 2012 while visiting the set of medical drama “House.” Time for an intervention?
