    You like shitty music, so just listen to more shitty artists and you'll be okay.

    That's called Pop Music, though I don't think you'll have any luck finding something like Gaga.

    You can start of by checking out what the most popular music videos on youtube are. Chances are that you'll find quite a few "rubbish" songs but when you do find a few good ones you'll then grow to like many songs from particular artists and through the suggestions list find more artists who produce music of a similar nature.

    Until you know what types of genre you're into I think it's pointless asking for aid.

    - edit: so for example you say that you like Ke$ha, watching Ke$ha - TiK ToK brings up as suggestions:

    Miley Cyrus - Party In The U.S.A.
    Taio Cruz - Dirty Picture ft. Ke$ha
    Rihanna - Rude Boy
    Lady Gaga - Telephone ft. BeyoncĂ© (good sign that this works as you like Lady gaga [​IMG])
    3OH!3 - My First Kiss
    Taylor Swift - You Belong With Me

    etc.

    There are other sites such as the ones mentioned below (also spotify)

    you could always start a channel on last.FM, Pandora, or a similar service using an artist you like to find other "similar" artists.

    taste in music is subjective... there is no bad taste, just poorly written/contrived music.

    You might like Katy Perry; I haven't listened to her first album but her second one, Teenage Dream, is definitely close to Ke$ha in style, and there's some cracking pop songs on there.

    If you like Kasabian then you might like The Whip or Hard-Fi too:

    MADONNA.

    Anyways, Nicki Minaj is a pretty good pop artist. As are Paramore (pop rock), Maroon 5, Fall out Boy (recommended highly, shit better than Panic), My Chemical Romance, and Katy Perry. But saying that Queen is bad = impossible to understand. Virtually every artist you like takes some inspiration from them, significantly Gaga who took her name from their song Radio Gaga.

    My favorite artists are Muse and Radiohead, so even if it's not in your taste I recommend giving them a listen.

    4. Miley Cyrus
    5. Madonna

    Anyone that will listen to Lady Gaga either has no taste or simply will listen to anything.
