YMMV: Yoko Ono
  • I Was Quite a Looker: Inverted. While she was quite homely during the 70s, she's aged quite well.
    • Really, back in the day Yoko was a case of She Cleans Up Nicely, due to her hippie image making her (and John) look shaggy and homely, when as you can see above her features themselves were not ugly by any means. Same applies to John, once a young Bishounen mostly known for looking like a dirty hippie.
  • Memetic Mutation: A sort-of fad in YouTube that's somewhat spreading is that Yoko does a "cover" of a certain song. This video then accompanied with piano instrumental of the song. Here's an example with Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance"
  • Never Live It Down: No matter what she did with her career or for John Lennon's memory, she'll always be remembered for the Beatles breaking up while she happened to be married to John. Charity work that she takes part in are frequently bashed online solely for the fact that she is Yoko.
    • Well, her singing doesn't help either.
  • Ron the Death Eater: There's plenty of fair criticism to be made of her, but her Hatedom's image of her as some evil golddigging sorceress who used her Eastern magic to seduce John Lennon and break up the Beatles definitely falls under this category.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: Yoko was a Concept Artist before she got into music. It influences her music as well.
  • She Really Can Sing: Opinions vary in which songs did her voice actually sound good (or at least "listenable"). Her more conventional songs are often well-liked even though there are some that do prefer her avant-garde songs with her screaming vocals more.
    • A good early example of this could be from the B-side of the "Give Peace a Chance" single, "Remember love".
  • Vindicated by History: Her work is considerably more popular now than it was between 1968 and 1990.
