10. The Most With the Least (Inspired by Nnamdi Omesiete)
 
Robin Thicke: Usually i would have a list of people in this category based on their missteps but Robin by far, takes the cake this year when it comes to pushing the envelope when it comes to messing up. where do i start! rushing and putting out a ballad driven album about your wife to allegedly get her back, selling way below what he took years to build and achieve last year. the constant interviews that always was about getting Paula back only for Paula to finally ask for a divorce. All of these reasons for me were way too damn much. Robin try being quiet and lets see how that would work.
