Christina Aguilera has fallen victim to an exceptionally strange search engine quirk: If you Google ‘dying grandparent’ in Google Images, it’s predominantly images of her, and she’s neither a grandparent nor dying.
So what’s going on?
It’s a result of a gossip item published in June about her family troubles. Aguilera was widely considered to be snubbing her… you guessed it … dying grandparents. Read more…
Have you been watching “The Voice”? The vocal talent show features judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine coaching singers in a vocal competition. The twist? The judges choose the people on their teams based on voice alone. The idea is that the blind auditions will help select singers who might otherwise be deemed conventionally attractive or saleable — with the hopes of finding an unexpected diamond in the rough.
It’s a great idea, yes. And in its first two seasons, the show has stuck to its mission fairly explicitly. But in season three? Ugh. There is a contestant that’s destroyed the core idea of “The Voice” — and managed to reinforce tired beliefs about conventionally attractive people.
Meet Dez Duron. He’s a former Yale football player and current Voice favorite. He’s also my least favorite contestant. Because he’s really, really attractive. Keep reading »
Did you guys get a chance to go to the pumpkin patch this year? I went with my brother last week, and while we were in the petting zoo he mentioned that my parents may have lied about the circumstances surrounding my bunny’s death when I was in 5th grade, so that kind of colored the whole trip, but that’s beside the point. You know who else loves pumpkin patches? Celebrities! Yep, every October they flock to sunny LA pumpkin patches in droves, cute kids in tow, determined to find the perfect pumpkin. Click through to check out 12 celebs–from Gwen Stefani to Hilary Duff–taking part in this fun fall tradition…
“Now everyone is a critic. I don’t read blogs. It’s just God-knows-who in Buttfuck wherever writing hate shit. You can’t take it seriously. I’m sure you’ve all been hated on at some point by buttfuck people. It’s real talk today.”
– Christina Aguilera tells The Hollywood Reporter what she really thinks of bloggers. I was just starting to like Christina again and then she called me a buttfucker. Boo! Well, I refuse to write hate shit in return. I would like to take this opportunity to praise Xtina for the feminist stance she recently took on “The Voice” when she stole Alessandra Guercio because “no woman should feel less than confident.” I thought that was awesome, Xtina. Keep it up. Sincerely, a buttfuck person from God-knows-who in Buttfuck. [DListed]
Perhaps you’ve heard of this little band of British moppets called The Wanted? They’re sort of like One Direction (or so I’ve been told), but less squeaky clean. And apparently, one way they’ve attempted to mold their bad boy image is by slagging off Christina Aguilera after meeting her at a taping of “The Voice.” This past April, the lads were doing an interview with Now FM and referred to her as a bitch. Member Tom Parker (he’s the one whose gaping maw is open so wide you can see his tonsils in the pic above) said, “She might not be a bitch in real life, but to us, she was a total bitch. She just sat there and didn’t speak to us. Wouldn’t even look at us.” I’d argue that Xtina shouldn’t have to look at anybody she doesn’t want to — especially if they happen to be foul-mouthed British teens. And also? Does a woman have to pay attention to a dude just because he wants her to? (#rhetoricalquestion). Keep reading »
