Analyze Dis

Bitter summer singles -- EW's rates the most vitriolic lyrics from 50 Cent, Kelly Clarkson, Maroon 5, and Pink

50 CENT ''Fully Loaded Clip''
The rapper takes aim at a succession of celeb couples on this recently leaked cut: ''While Nas was telling Kelis, 'I love you, boo'/I was shining my nine — you know how I do.'' We sure do. Vitriol: 7/10

KELLY CLARKSON ''Never Again''
Hell hath no fury like an American Idol scorned. ''I hope the ring you gave to her turns her finger green,'' she snarls at an insensitive ex. ''Bet it sucks to see my face everywhere!'' Vitriol: 9/10

MAROON 5 ''Makes Me Wonder''
Frontman Adam Levine mulls over whether he ''ever gave a f--- about you'' before concluding, ''Give me something to believe in, 'cause I don't believe in you anymore.'' Cold! Even colder is the blank grimace he wears throughout the video. Vitriol: 8/10

PINK ''U + Ur Hand''
Her hit's still on the charts almost eight months after its release — maybe because Pink's harsh put-downs are timeless (''Keep your drink, just give me the money/It's just you and your hand tonight''). Vitriol: 7/10
