Musicians can be so obnoxious. They can also be sociopathic, violent, and perverted. But we’re not writing about monsters here. We’re writing about assholes. We’re writing about celebrities whose self-absorption, immaturity, and craving for fame make them oblivious to decent behavior. We’re writing about that moment when you have to reconcile your feelings about the person with your feelings about their music.

Everyone’s a jerk sometimes, and here are 10 of the jerkiest moments in music history.
