    Hmm...so many to list, so little time. Mariah Carey, with her endless octave scatting; Jessica Simpson, because breathiness and tits aren't enough; Celine because while she does have a good voice, her choice of treacley material sucks.

    I could list more but those are the major ones of annoyance for me.

    I cringe when I watch Josh Groban. The voice and talent is there and he is fricking adorable, but he is a lyrical advice column filled with lame lines about mountains and not giving up.

    I like to think that when he goes home, he retreats to the pile of money heís earned from hugging grandmas, counts it as he drinks and smokes, all while he waits for girl of the day to come over. Then he can redeem himself.

    While ALL of these vanilla beans are truly dull and lifeless, it's time to dig a little deeper.

    You can add carmel or hot fudge and nuts; you can add raspberry sauce or oreo bits; you can add chocolate chips or sprinkles; you can add high-cut leotards and strategically placed fringe that distracts and leads even a hetero girl's eye to her nether regions, but when all is said and done, vanilla is still vanilla and Madona is still a little catholic girl trying to get her daddy's attention (he wasn't a baseball player, was he?).

    Madona has seen her day, made 150 million dollars, written books, masterbated on stage with a cross, thrown out her daughter's clothes when they weren't picked up off the floor (I really like that one), but she is still over-compensating for losing her mom and now it's boring (and kind of pathetic - great bod or not).

    I vote for Madona - take away the carmel sauce, sprinkles and swinging fringe and she's just a high-earning has-been who doesn't know it yet.

The Hoff and company used to go there for dinner before the show and for drinks afterward. One night, he got so wasted, he fell down the stairs in the restaurant and puked on, then pissed himself.

    The most boring, lame and vanilla? Gotta say that Michael Bolton sort of impresses me with his vocal thrusts. Don't dig the sounds at all but seriously, that man sings with so much gusto I think he should be on the political ticket and be a added as an additional form of alternative energy to wind power. Seriously, he really busts it out even though I don't dig the tunes.

    But in terms of lameness, and vanilla-ness. As in a dude who isn't just bad but blends with the wallpaper, a total snoozer. Hands down gotta go for Barry Manilow.

    Good morning, all - such a stimulating question. I never dreamed I'd have the opportunity to look at several photos of David Hasselhoff in a Speedo at such an early hour.

    Anyhow, I'd like to dis the entertainers who do these horrid R&B/rap ballad hybrid songs with the electronic voice alterations collaged over ridiculous vocal pyrotechnics. Many such songs include heavy breathing and the lyrics are always completely uninspired. KnowwhutImean?

    "Vanilla" (according to the Urban Dictionary):

    1 - a type of foodstuff grown in a pod

    2 - straight down the line, boring sex, with as little foreplay as possible, the kind of sex that the Catholic Church (proud sponsors of this year's Republican party) want you to have, if you have to have sex at all, and if you're married.

    3 - The opposite of kinky. Not in any way involved with BDSM

    4 - Unexciting, normal, conventional, boring.

When a man loves a woman he doesn't do so by screaming in her ear--so why should it be acceptable for a man to sing a sensitive love song as if he's directing traffic for the hearing impaired? R&B classics deserve their place in musical history and should be protected from this man's desecration of all that is holy. It's only right. Let's make it a law.

    First of all, let me say, as a trained singer, that part of my soul died when Michael released his classical album. It was a nightmare. It was worse than a nightmare. It was an effing joke of catastrophic proportions. Also, let me just say that I love that line from the movie "Office Space"... the one that refers to Michael Bolton as a "no-talent assclown". Everytime I hear it, I die all over again!
    OK.. this is a little bit mean. But I'm going to put it out there. Scarlett Johansson CANNOT sing. I listened to part of her new demo, and it was so horrific my skin started peeling off.

    After many years of being an unapologetic, truly dedicated Madonna fan, its time to throw in the towel. For years she demanded my attention and I have to admit, I was compelled to give it to her. Album after album, music video after music video, I was there, lapping it up.

    In recent years, her obsessive desire to prove that she is still relevant has shown an ego gone out of control. The machine replicates and churns out the same songs with.....Justin Timberlake? Why oh why Madonna did it have to end like this?!

    She may still look hot, but her flavor is decidedly vanilla. It takes a true ex-fan to be able to say that!

    And for women, she's not boring, vanilla, but so overdone and so not a singer - Paris Hilton. Can she please just focus on being socialite?

    Amy, I'm going to have to agree with you on Barry Manilow! Something about the man just irks me...it could be that he never ages.

    And, although he is technically an actor, I have always loathed Kevin Costner. It must be the monitone voice. Or, it could be his choice in roles. Anyone see "Open Range?" Horrifying!

    The one that will forever hold a place in the history books for reaching a mindboggling celeb status in the music business, even if for just a short time, is William Hung from American Idol. When I learned he had a Cd out and was becoming a household name swaying his hips and singing "She bangs, she bangs" I decided global warming is impacting more than our environment....it's impacting our brains. If William Hung can become a star, then I hate to see who's next. And to be bold, I admit, I love Michael Bolton. I bet I'll get a lot of cyberspace pies in the face for that one!!!!!

    So maybe I'm a little off with this, but it doesn't say that it has to be an American singer, so here I go. Fillip Kirkorov. He's like the Michael Jackson of Russia, but he really can't sing. Personally I think that the only reason why he became famous was because he married one of Russia's most known singers at the time, who was 20 years his senior (or something close to that age gap). Point is he's lame, but for some reason those Russians love him. If Michael Jackson and Boy George would have ever figured out a way to conceive a child together, this would be him.

    You're probably saying, "Then why the hell did you watch?!" But it was akin to watching a horror show, I couldn't take my eyes off of the telly, but she really was soooo bad. She was doing the "fist pumps" and rock stance. Oh the horror... the horror...

    I was subjected to Lawrence Welk almost every Saturday night when I was in my teens. My elderly neighbor loved all of the kids in the neighborhood, so she would make dinner, have candy on hand, but when everyone else was finished eating, they'd bolt out the door. I was left to watch his show, thanks to PBS. I felt bad and couldn't leave- yes bad singers, but when you mentioned his name it brought back warm memories, in an odd sort of way. I really do need to stop the Xanax don't I?

    My mantra is "don't be afraid of anything." So, at the risk of making multitudes of soft-rock-loving-ladies hideously angry, I have to say it: John Mayer. His uninventive, commercial, formulaic songs are made all the worse by the fact that he's a better musician than he lets on, and knows how awful his music is. My advice for you, John Mayer: Become a part of the solution, not the problem.
