People I hate, that everyone else admires

Average listal rating (41 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating
1. Jeremy Clarkson
Famous for: Driving cars, poor fashion, stereotypical racism.

Clarkson is easily my first choice of 'most hated Briton'. He tries so hard to make his jokes look unscripted, but is ultimately nothing more than a simple stereotype generating machine. Think of a country. Germany? Reel out jokes about blonde hair, blue eyes, obedience to authority, sausages etc etc. How tiresome. Let's give him a newspaper column.

2. Lady GaGa
Famous for: Revealing outfits, succession of wanky pop hits.

Take a plain looking woman, dye her hair blonde, paste her in makeup and drench her in designer slutty outfits. Hooray, you've got the next pop sensation! I often wonder if people think Lady Gaga sits at home behind a synthesiser, comprising catchy electro beats and penning snappy lyrics. Or whether they realise she doesn't have an iota of musical talent and sells her by-the-numbers records because she's 'conventionally pretty'.

3. Noel Fielding
Famous for: The Mighty Boosh, ridiculous outfits

Noel Fielding's followers are so blindly in love with the funnyman, that he doesn't even have to make jokes any more maintain his status. All he does now is synthesise quirky sentences that don't even nearly make sense. You could probably make a Fielding Joke Generator™ using the following equation:

"You're just afraid of the (*insert synonym for 'cosmic'*) (*insert species of primate/kitchen appliance*) and their propensity for (*insert esoteric genre of music/flamboyant outfit*)"

I demand better.

4. Will Ferrell
Famous for: Pretending he's still 21.

Nothing takes the piss more than a cut-and-paste Ferrell hit. What facet of your dynamic acting range are you exploring this time, Ferrell? Are you perhaps going to play an extremely deluded professional (with hilarious results!). Or maybe you're treating us all to ANOTHER hilarious cameo! We are spoiled.

5. Boris Johnson
Famous for: Unconventional haircut.

Boris Johnson was elected as London Mayor for the sole reason that he has unkempt hair. He has been in the job for a whole year and the only thing he has done so far is outlaw drinking on the tube. Only... nobody is enforcing the rule, no arrests have been made as a result and you've got absolutely nothing else to show for a year's efforts. In the mean time he's scrapped many decent sounding proposals purely because they were the brainchild of his predecessor, not him. BUT HE HAZ FUNNY HAIR LOLZ.
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (14 ratings) 4.6  IMDB Rating
6. Gary Lineker
Famous for: Scoring goals for England.

No doubt about it, Lineker was a gifted forward who managed to step up for his country on many occasions. That doesn't mean he has a personality though. He is without a doubt, one of the most boring television personalities of recent times, yet he still enjoys repeated employment at the expense of Match of the Day fans everywhere. He is an awful presenter, he cannot improvise nor seemingly form an opinion on his own. Why is he still employed!
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (849 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
7. Katy Perry
Famous for: Ripping off Pink.

No matter what anyone says, Katy Perry looks like Roy Keane with a pair of tits and a wig. And I just happen to think that's a frightening prospect.
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (548 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
8. Seth Rogen
Famous for: Pretending he's still 21.

Anyone who churns out like 10 identical films a year is obviously spreading their creative talent a little bit thin. Plastering Rogen's massive gormless face across 7 foot billboards in every train station in England is a sure fire way to guarantee I associate him with feelings of sheer misery and disappointment.

The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (1314 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
9. Jack Black
Famous for: Being fat and making fart jokes.

Jack Black is exactly the same as Ferrell and Rogen, only he seems to have been around for an extra ten years or so. Tenacious D is a permanent stain on his career and my young adult life. Out of interest, if you've ever laughed at a Tenacious D song then I recommend death by ship propeller. Just look at his picture collection on listal, there's not a single one you don't want to punch your monitor for.
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (196 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating
10. Joss Whedon
Famous for: Being king of the nerds.

Joss Whedon is to television programmes as Stephenie Meyer is to the world of literature. I once saw a T-shirt that read: "Joss Whedon is my God!". Well let me tell you something, here is an example of God writing dialogue:
"With the jawbone of an ass, heaps upon heaps, with the jaw of an ass have I slain a thousand men"

And here is an example of Whedon's dialogue:
"So, you've been seeing a guy, but you don't know what he looks like. Okay, this is a puzzle. No, wait, I'm good at these. Does it involve a midget and a block of ice?"

Case closed.
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (798 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
11. Rihanna
Famous for: Being beaten up.

Never has a mainstream singer so insultingly flaunted the auto-tuner. Her voice is almost entirely animatronic now. Nobody bats an eyelid over the fact that she has ripped off Michael Jackson, Soft Cell, New Order, Maroon 5, Dragostea din tei and GarageBand software over the last couple of years. Instead they're quite content to listen to a singer who can't actually sing or write music.
The Flagship's rating:


 

Man, I just hate these guys!

Each of the following I've noticed receiving some sort of ludicrous and undeserved praise from people I know in real life and the media in general. It's unbearable that as a race we've become all too happy to embrace mediocrity.

Wow, perfect list! Cannot say I've ever imagined Roy Keane with a pair of tits and a wig myself!

Where is Paris Hilton?
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Jun 9 2:52
I've never heard of half the people on your list. Consider me lucky/American?

Rihanna is working the idol effect. It has a limited range and normally wears off in a few years.
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 22 22:47
I was gonna vote for you, but then a saw Joss Whedon on the list.
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 22 22:59
Thanx for the list.
Hating is fun!
:)
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 22 23:10
Thanks guys, have to say I'd decline a vote from a Joss Whedon fan anyway.
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 23 15:09
Funny list! personally I'd have had Chris Brown on this instead of Rihanna, & added Paris Hilton & Miley Cyrus!
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 23 15:43
So... Nomather what these guys will do, you will hate it? That's pretty narrow minded.
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 23 17:38
Not just these guys, Gotenberg, but YOU TOO!
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 23 17:47
"I was gonna vote for you, but then a saw Joss Whedon on the list."

yeah same thing, but then I saw Seth Rogen, Jack Black and Will Ferrell on the list. Well not that I care much fore Black or Ferrell - but Rogen is one of the best comedian actors alive. And Tenacious D is a kick-ass band.
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 23 18:01
It's almost like you guys fall into the 'everyone else admires' part of this list, thus providing the reason it was made. Whod've thought!?
Posted: 5 years ago at Sep 1 18:49
lady gaga is totally totally thrash, ugly and fucked up. (though her songs are not that bad...)

There are some proper northswanes replying to this list. I don't know how you deal with it GA.

Katy Perry has such overrated tits that unless she hadn't strapped on that giant push up bra and watermelon diaper I never would of noticed. Clarkson is twat, he wrote recently about how Tigers should go extinct and how he could careless-scum!

Ha, I'm a member of the official "I Hate Jack Black" club, it's made up of me, my boyfriend, and my mom, but most other people seem to think he's hilarious, I don't get it.
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Jun 6 3:21
Out of all of these, there's only one that I either couldn't give a damn about, haven't heard of, or actually dislike, and that's Joss Whedon. He's wonderful. Other than that, great list!

HATE CLARKSON! THANKS AGAIN! Scum peddler.

I haven't heard of a lot of those people. I agree with most of the picks especially Lady Gaga and Katy Perry (I cannot believe she topped the Maxim hot 100 list) I disagree with Will Ferrell though. Some of his movies have sucked but I think he is a good actor.

Actually I think it's Lady Gaga's costumes that makes her "edgy". Otherwise she'd just be a Christina Aguilera wannabe.
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Jun 15 14:49
Jack black, will ferrell, and seth rogen all make movies for the people who want movies that they make. --no one forces you or anyone to watch what you hate.-- get over it- its about choices- be glad you have them
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Jun 30 18:37
if you don't like comedy dude,it's your problem!if you watch the pick of destiny or a will ferrel movie next time don't judge it like lost in translation or blade runner etc. i strongly agree with you though, for lady gaga...

I voted for you coz you have Wil Ferrell, Seth Rogen and Jack Black on the list. But I disagree with you on Joss Whedon
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Feb 28 3:12
Why is everybody picking on Lady Gaga? She's maybe not that perfect Hollywood-Chic but her face has at least a character. She's also clever, why do you guys think she is THAT famous? She exactly knows what she is doing. She knows, that even if there are haters out there - these haters will just make her more famous.

And being "famous for being beaten up" is not funny - domestic violence is some serious shit caused by dicks who are not able to love someone (if you love the person, you don't beat her/him!)
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Feb 28 5:08
I agree with the whole list.
I can't believe anybody would mistake Lady Gaga for "edgy" shes a singing prostitute and Will Ferrel was always better as a side character. As a lead, he's absolute crap and his movies staled ages ago.
I agree with the whole list.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Feb 28 10:30
yeah...except for Joss Whedon.

I think this list is golden. I don't agree with you on everything but I can understand your point of view.

Miley Cyrus : famous for having a mismatched gum and teeth

Justin Bieber : famous for being bi-gender challenging

Paris Hilton : famous for .... (I wanna say "for being famous" but that would've been too predictable)
Posted: 2 years, 10 months ago at Oct 22 14:52
I would say that Lady Gaga deserves admiring.
She is not talentless. It's just the opposite. She's got a killing voice and brilliant sense for music. The only problem is that she preferes fame ofer respect. And that's why she is wasting her talent on that craperia music and style. But to say she doesn't have a talent is just wrong.

I personaly admire her talent in the best possible way, and I also admire the way she is wasting it on her electro-beat pop music in the worst possible way.
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Jan 5 18:16
Agree on most of those that I heard of, specially Joss Whedon. I'll never understand how some people treat him like a God, no wonder he thinks he really is one.

Lady Gaga & Rihanna are a joke. I agree. Not to mention...both of these women are Satanists...which is enough for me to lose any and all respect for them.

I agree with you on Joss Whedon too. His version of "Hawkeye," in the Avengers, was ridiculous and embarrassing.
Posted: 7 months ago at Jan 30 1:24
Rihanna and Lady Gaga are really famous for their talents in singing, but I guess you didn't realize that cause you're too worried about pictures instead of listening.

P.S. the John Doe comment is hilarious. Satanists? You could accuse any celebrity of being that.
Posted: 7 months ago at Jan 31 1:01
Well, I've always liked Whedon's work. Buffy, Angel, Firefly...pretty much everything except for Dr. Horrible..., which I don't care to see. And I love the British version of Top Gear, though I'll admit that Clarkson is tiresome.

Everyone else...they can take a flying leap. I couldn't care less if any of them are Satanists or not. ;P
