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”?
