Former coach on “The Voice” and entertainer Christina Aguilera has a bit of advice for teen singer Justin Bieber: disappear!
Justin has had quite the week in London, as well as his recent problems with pot, friends crashing his car and his ex-girlfriend bad-mouthing him on television. So, Christina has advised him to step out of the limelight for a bit!
She said in a new interview, “You live life and it’s hard to grow up in front of a camera. You learn as you get older to take moments for yourself, step away from the camera, re-inspire yourself as an artist, rejuvenate and refresh.”
She went on to say, “I would tell Bieber, don’t let anything morph you or push you around or have you be something you’re not. I’ve always been really honest and true to my own roots and been really grounded, not letting myself stray too much.”
In addition to hacking into some personal photos of Scarlett Johansson, Hollywood hacker Christopher Chaney also shared some pretty racy shots of “The Voice” coach Christina Aguilera. Now, she is opening up about the scandal.
Chaney has since been sentenced to ten years in prison for hacking into the email accounts and phones of several celebrities. He pleaded guilty in March and was given his sentence on Monday. Scarlett said that she was “humiliated and embarrassed” by the nude photos that were intended for her former husband Ryan Reynolds.
Christina said of the scandal, “That feeling of security can never be given back and there is no compensation that can restore the feeling one has from such a large invasion of privacy.”
She has a point, doesn’t she? What do you think?
Christina Aguilera hit the red carpet last night for the American Music Awards wearing a purple dress and a spray tan — showing off her fuller figure. The dress was cute, but apparently it hasn’t sat well with some of her fans who have taken to Twitter to discuss the reported fiasco.
She performed a medley of songs from her new album “Lotus” and joined Pitbull on stage. Her performance was good, per usual, but that wasn’t what caught the attention of those who were watching the AMAs last night. Apparently it was her attire….
Some fans took to Twitter to say, “Carrie Underwood is what Christina Aguilera thinks she looks like right now. And no one has the heart to tell her ‘NAWL.’”
Another tweeted, “Christina Aguilera looks like Snooki. No wait, that’s an insult to Snooki.”
While another said, “Did Christina Aguilera eat one of Willy Wonka’s blueberries?”
But still, Christina had some fans in her defense. One said, “Christina Aguilera looked gorgeous last night. I love this dress and the diva attitude she is serving!”
Another said, “Anyone who says Christina Aguilera isn’t amazing can leave nearest exit to the left thanks”. While another fan tweeted, “New hairstyle and looking gorgeous! Christina Aguilera aka Legendtina Godulara!”
Sure she has put on some weight in recent times, but she still looks good…and can this woman sing! What did you think of her look at the American Music Awards last night? Hit or miss?
“The Voice” coach and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine has revealed in a new interview that he will miss his co-judges Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green on “The Voice.” The judges said that they would not be appearing in the swiveling chairs for the show’s third season and Adam seems kind of bummed out about that.
He did say, however, that he is excited to work with Christina and Cee Lo’s replacements, Usher and Shakira. Both Christina and Cee Lo announced plans for a hiatus from the show in order to work on their respective music careers. Of that, Adam said, “Christina and Cee Lo are so close to my heart because we went through the show becoming a success together and Usher and Shakira are coming into as a big fricking institution. So it’s different but it still feels good because they are legitimate artists.”
He went on to say, “I knew Usher before. We’ve worked in the studio a couple of times together. Shakira is a new friend but I love her dearly already. She’s so sweet and adorable and hilarious.”
Adam also said of his friendship with co-judge Blake Shelton, “We need to be separated. If Blake and I sat next to each other, we’d never get anything done. We already yap across the room like we’re yelling across a dinner table.”
Will you be tuning into “The Voice” next season to see Adam Levine, Shakira, Usher and Blake Shelton dishing out advice and turning their chairs around for the talent?
Adam Levine wants all of us to know that he isn’t going to put up with anyone bashing his “Voice” co-mentor Christina Aguilera over her weight. In fact, he is speaking out in defense of Xtina, saying that it’s basically no one else’s business but her own.
As you may already know, Christina has been the subject of those speaking out against her with regard to her weight fluctuations. When appearing on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, which is airing Monday, Adam had a message for Christina’s naysayers: back off.
He said, “It’s a very basic thing. She should be left alone. No one should bother or haggle her about her weight or anything she does or says. So, that’s it. That’s how I feel about it.”
Good for him for being a gentleman and sticking up for her. Not that she needed him to or anything, but it’s always nice to have someone like him in your corner. Am I right, ladies?
Christina Aguilera appeared at the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Conference and gave her opinions on tabloids, bloggers and Simon Cowell. With regard to the tabloid press and online bloggers, she said, “Now everyone is a critic. I don’t read blogs. It’s just God-knows-who in Buttf**k–wherever writing hate s**t. You can’t take it seriously. I’m sure you’ve all been hated on at some by buttf**k people. It’s real talk today.”
Her show “The Voice” competes with shows like “American Idol” and now “The X Factor” in the category of reality talent competitions. With regard to “Mr. Nasty” Simon Cowell, she said, “I’ve not actually seen a full episode of any of the other music shows. I saw the commercials early on of American Idol of Simon being a dick. I was like, ‘Man, that’s not what it’s about!’ I didn’t want to treat people like that.
I wanted to do The Voice to show that we can be positive. We don’t have to knock people down.”
And that’s how she feels about that! Do you prefer Simon’s honesty or the slower, more relaxed pace of “The Voice”?
Christina Aguilera revealed yesterday that she was pressured by her record label to be a skinny, size zero. During her “Stripped” album, she was told to lose weight, of which she complied. She was guilted into doing it because she basically didn’t want anyone to lose their jobs because of poor record sales.
Reportedly, she said, “During the promotion of Stripped in 2002 I got tired of being a skinny, white girl. I am Ecuadorian but people felt so safe passing me off as a skinny, blue-eyed white girl. I was heavier, darker and full of piercings! Let me tell you, that wasn’t an easy pill for them to swallow. I had gained about 15 pounds during promotion and during my Stripped tour. They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight. Basically, they told me I would affect a lot of people if I gained weight – the production, musical directors.”
Now that she has recorded her latest album “Lotus”, he said, “You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it. My body can’t put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore – my body is just not on the table that way anymore.”
Since, we’ve learned that the quotes attributed to Christina Aguilera were fake! It was a good message, though. Crazy, right?
