Artpop and Prism are both wannabe
Born This Way is sooo basic and tame

Let's not forget Mariah titles post-90s, with the pinnacle being Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse

"Stars Dance" & "Only Human" aren't bad ones. I really do love "Stars Dance"; it's sounds so magical and somehow romantic.

"Britney Jean" isn't a bad album title but since we had gotten "Britney" before, it's incredibly lacklustre. If she had been trying to find a self-reference album title again, just "Jean" would have been enough.

I usually hate album titles with self-references, especially by bands, e.g.

Jedward - Planet Jedward
Spice Girls - Spice World
Backstreet Boys - Backstreet Boys
Backstreet Boys - Backstreet's Back (the follow-up album of "Backstreet Boys" :roll: :roll: )

Others I really dislike:

Ashlee Simpson - I Am Me
Beyoncé - I Am ... Sasha Fierce
Flo-Rida - R.O.O.T.S. (Route of Overcoming the Struggle)
Lady GaGa - Artpop
Britney Spears | Loreen | Coldplay | Within Temptation | Selena Gomez | Lena

Shakira - Laundry Service
Janet - Damita Jo, 20 Y.O.
Ciara - Jackie

I really hate basic album titles. Nearly every artist has at least one album called
X
Stronger
Unbreakable
I Am
All for you
etc

There are also album titles that are just blah. Like
Freedom
Love
One

That's exactly what the album is about)
That's Kacey herself :D
That is why I asked you. If Madonna had named her album this way, this would have been hilarious.

By the way, Hard Candy and MDNA are really amongst the worst album titles :D
