Looks like Jessica Simpson and Christina Aguilera both have new jobs. On the heels of her arrest for public intoxication, while her new BF Matthew Rutler was charged with a DUI, NBC announced that Xtina will be a musician coach on their “American Idol” knockoff, “The Voice,” a series that will debut on April 26. “To be given the opportunity to help shape new artists’ careers and mentor them to see their dreams come to fruition is a task I welcome with open arms,” Christina said.Meanwhile, it looks like J-Simp may become a judge on “The X Factor,” alongside Simon Cowell. The word on the street is that she is the frontrunner for the gig, which will be more than just judging—like Christina, she’d be coaching contestants and helping them with their image and personality, in addition to their voice and dance moves.
With Jennifer Lopez over at “Idol,” it seems like reality competition shows are where pop stars go once their albums just aren’t quite connecting anymore.
