It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Some artists constantly change up their formula, while others are content.  There is nothing wrong with being content, but sometimes it puts your artistry into serious questioning.  There are many artists I could characterize as ‘one dimensional’, but I chose five who truly epitomize this description.  And yes, some of these are artists I highly respect and listen to.  I’m a meanie, I know.
