7 Singers Better Known For Their Personal Lives Than Their Music

Some singers keep their personal lives really private, which is good because then they are mostly know for their music. Other singers, however, aren’t so lucky. They can’t keep their personal drama to themselves and it ends up taking over the news. It can be quite embarrassing. Here are 7 singers that are better known for their personal lives than for their music:

7. Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has spent a good part of her life in the spotlight. First she was Hannah Montana and then she became the wild child known for rubbing up against Robin Thicke at the VMAs. Miley has trouble keeping her personal life private, but she doesn’t seem to mind. She’ll take any kind of attention that she can get.

6. Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift went through quite a few boys in a relatively short amount of time. The relationships didn’t last long either. She’s got a pretty rocking career, but a lot of her songs deal with her personal relationships, specifically the beef she has with the men she’s dated. Because of this, her personal life gets a lot of attention. We think it’s safe to say that she gets more attention for her relationships than for her music.

5. Selena Gomez

Before she starting dating Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez was known for her singing and acting career. Unfortunately for the former Disney star, her relationship with Justin was so volatile that it ended up more attention than her career. Now most people are interested in knowing what’s going on in her personal life, if she’s dating Justin or if she’s dating someone else.

4. Justin Bieber

Five years ago, Justin Bieber was known for being a singer – a really cute one from Canada. However, that’s changed. Over the last few years, he’s been getting into a little too much trouble, whether it’s for drag racing in a residential area or visiting a brothel in South America. All of the partying didn’t help either. Although he’s been trying to clean up his act as of late, it doesn’t really matter. People prefer hearing about the drama in his personal life more than they like listening to his music.

3. Gavin Rossdale

In the ‘90s, Gavin Rossdale was known for being the front man for Bush; however, by the time he married Gwen Stefani, he was known for being her boyfriend and then her husband. Since they officially filed for divorce, he’s become better known for being a really lousy husband. Word on the street is that he cheated on Gwen with the couple’s nanny. If it weren’t for this, he probably wouldn’t even be in the news anymore.

2. LeAnn Rimes

Since hooking up with Eddie Cibrian, LeAnn Rimes’ country singing career has been stagnating. Lucky for her though, the tabloids have been obsessed with her affair and subsequent marriage to Eddie, so she’s regularly in the news even though she’s not really doing anything. It’s really too bad. She has a lot of talent. Unfortunately, her personal life got way too much attention and ruined her career.

1. Rita Ora

Rita Ora is pretty famous because of her music, but her messy personal life is definitely what keeps her in the headlines. From her breakup with Rob Kardashian and Calvin Harris to her relationship with Travis Barker, this girl is a drama magnet.
