Why people hate or dislike Macy Gray?

I just don't get it...

She is sensational! Her songs are intelligent, cool and have a message! She went on Brazil last year, and she is such a great person!

Some people say it's cause of her voice. Well Lauryn also doesn't have that appropriate voice to sing, and she still rules! Others say it's because of her personality...

Noel Gallagher does the same thing, and still have devoted fans.. I'm not saying for everyone from now on be a Macy fan!

Just want understand why all this hate on her? Or maybe I'm wrong about the others opinion about her, it's cause the people I have talked too only few like her...

AAhhh and you have heard her song "Sexual Revolution"??? Or seen the video clip??

It just too cool

Bernardo, I think for some people it was probably because "I Try" was so overplayed, they just got sick of her. That kind of backlash usually happens when radio decides to play a song an awful lot. Personally, I love her voice... it's so unique and really sets her apart from everyone else. I love her writing style as well.. I mean you have to give someone praise for writing songs with titles like "Give Me All Your Lovin Or I Will Kill You".

I LOVE HER

SHE IS ONE OF MY FAVES.


I got her two albums.

My fave song is I try

But I also like Sexual revolution, and the song I've commited murder ( this one is so funny)

She is unique, her voice, her style. I like everything about her. I ADORE MACY GRAY

Ola BecoolSerenaLover! Tudo bem contigo?

I like Macy too. It took some time for The Id to grow on me but now I really like it. I play it more than On How Life Is. I particularly like Boo and Related To A Psychopath.

I quite like Macy (though I concede that she does sound like Marge Simpson), though I haven't heard The Id - I thought she was trying to overplay her kooky image a bit too much, and Sweet Baby wasn't a very good single.
But she is very individual, which is always a good thing. I've Committed Murder... and anyone who can write a song as rude as Caligula must be good

I admit I don't like Macy Gray, and the reason is exactly what Vanity say.

The first time I hear it on teh radio, I thought it is cool and quite unique, but then after a while I hear it on radio every half and hour aand got really really irritated with it, I recall the days when I hear I try, I just switched off the radio for 4 minutes,
I mean it happen the sam eto Alanis with her song (I cannot remember the name) and I hated that song ever since.

I am sorry to say, but Macy Gray's 'I Try' is one of the main reason why I give up listening radio

Her songs are OK, but I don't like the voice - for me it's too "scratchy"... if that makes sense. I don't think Lauren Hill's voice is so bad!

If you dislike a singer cos' her songs are too much on radio, WHat about the spice girls, nsync, backstreet boys and all those teen singers

Nothing personal to Macy Gray, but I just don't like her voice. They also over played her songs which is why I am so sick of hearing it.
