Ok, she didn’t say she was trashed, and she wasn’t carrying around a flask or anything (visibly), but sometimes, you just know.
Here, just check it out:
On gossip blogs: “Now everyone is a critic. don’t read blogs. It’s just God-knows-who in Buttf-ck wherever writing hate shit. You can’t take it seriously. I’m sure you’ve all been hated on at some point by buttf-ck people.”
On other shows like The Voice: “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.”
On songwriter Linda Perry and the process of writing “Beautiful”: “Linda Perry is raw, she’s real and she intimidates a lot of grown men. She’s amazing. I was having a really bad day. I came into her studio. It was at her house at the time. I was working with her on a bunch of stuff. She just kind of sat down at her piano in her dining room and started singing. ’Don’t do all that Mariah shit’ – that was her, not me, I love that shit! But she was like ‘don’t be doing all that acrobatic shit, just sing!’”
On more shit: “Shit happens, man. This is the business. It’s not going to be all cute and pretty and tied up in a little bow.”
On the interview itself: “It’s real talk today.”
See what I mean? Oh, and when she was talking about “Beautiful,” she took a break to sing a few lines from the song. Isn’t that such a drunk girl thing to do? “Oh yeah, my song ‘Beautiful,’” and then she goes into “all that Mariah shit.” Then she burps and says “it’s real talk today.” I LOVE it.
And I’m also really glad to know that she think of me as “God-knows-who in Buttf-ck wherever writing hate shit.” I know she’s probably not talking about me personally, but it still gives me some weird sense of validation. Thank you for that, Drunk Christina. Thank you for the real talk.
