Christina Aguilera has been in a reflective mood, so she took to her website this week to thank her fans for all their support over the years. It’s a really sweet move (and genuine, unlike Perez Hilton‘s endeavour to get Bionic back at the top of the charts), and, well, I’ll just let her speak for herself.
I wanted to reach out to my fans out there that continuously support me and have my back relentlessly throughout the years.
I am so grateful and fortunate for your dedication. Your time & devotion. Your kindness and understanding. Your patience and compassion.
I continue to work, create and deliver my best to you.
I wanted to share with you a few thoughts that come to mind when I think of you all and the constant love I am blessed to receive from you over time.
I am so happy and at peace in life and I only want and wish you all to feel the same and live that way too!
Looking back, it’s amazing for me to be here now, today, feeling so proud and supported on my entire body of work displayed- both personally & professionally.
It has been a tremendous gift to have been able to share my work on such a large scale with all of you around the world, who have supported and appreciated my efforts through all I’ve worked tirelessly in accomplishing, for so many years now.
You’re strength encourages me to continue digging deep and searching within myself to openly offer my heart & soul to you.
As you have for me at all times and in every stage of my life and career.
I mean, this thing goes on (and on… and on…) so I can’t print the whole thing here, but go give it a read. I’m not sure what brought this on, but I guess it’s nice if you’re an Xtina fan.

Things have gotten and continue to stay ugly in the Lady GaGa/Perez Hilton fiasco (though some could argue it was always ugly…), but Perez has always been one to try and outdo his previous bullshit with something even lower and cornier than before, and he certainly hasn’t disappointed this time around, either.
Despite trying to play the innocent and act as though GaGa deeply hurt and upset him and all that shit (which is probably true, but I’m sure it’s a two way street when you’re dealing with two desperate fame whores), he’s now launched a campaign to keep her album, Artpop, from doing well in the charts. Oh, honey. You don’t have to launch a campaign – Lady GaGa will tank all on her own! Still, it’s pretty hilarious that he’s urging people to buy Christina Aguilera‘s 2010 album Bionic on November 11 – Artpop‘s release date – to keep GaGa’s out of the charts. SHADE CENTRAL.
Here’s what Perez posted on Twitter:
HAHA! I won’t be buying either of those, but it’ll be amusing to see how much both GaGa and Perez fail in their respective endeavours. Also, pretty sure Christina Aguilera wants to be left OUT of this bullshit.

Christina Aguilera debuted a pretty slimmed down bod at the Billboard Music Awards earlier this month, which got everyone talking, of course. After all, a lady’s body is only good insofar as being good to look at, and we all know it’s more desirable to look at a skinny body than a “fat” (normal sized) one. Blah blah blah.
Anyway, some “insiders” have now claimed that Christina – who has famously been outspoken about how much she loves her curves – decided to drop the weight after pretty much being harassed by the general public about her weight.
From US Weekly (via DS):
“A lot of people were on her about her weight and it depressed her,” a friend said. “She went through a bad time because of the criticism.”
Aguilera is said to have signed up for the 1,600-calorie-a-day Fresh Diet program, which offers users different nutritious food options.
“She did it all on her own,” said the source. “She goes online and picks out her food.”
Here’s one thing I will never, ever understand: why the fuck you would pay someone to bring you fresh food instead of… going shopping for fresh food. I guarantee you that “fresh diet” costs about $300 per week – which she could easily get a month’s worth of healthy food for one on. As someone who’s working on shedding some pounds myself (and more than Xtina’s 20), I still relish my laziness but I can at least bring myself to pick out some healthy food options. Lord.
Anyway, it’s a shame that people still bully women about their bodies (no one harasses James Gandolfini about his massive gut) and that it got to her enough to change. Losing weight and being healthy as great, but it should be for the right reasons – health, YOURSELF – rather than anyone else or it’ll just come right back when the outside world inevitably doesn’t like something else about you. Bullshit.

Justin Bieber‘s already purchased his one way ticket to Dickville, but some of his fellow celebrities seem to be pretty invested in making that a round-trip journey by offering him nuggets of “wisdom” to help him through this difficult time of… being difficult for no f-cking reason. The latest star to reach out a helping hand? Why, none other that former child star and forever queen of the inability to stay on one note, Christina Aguilera.
From Hollyscoop (via The Sun):
“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.”
Christina also advised the Canadian singer to be more independent and stand up to those who are pushing him around.
She said: “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.”
Well, you certainly haven’t been humble, girl. People who brag about being grounded generally aren’t all that much. But that’s neither here nor there. It’s good for anyone to “rejuvenate and refresh” after a long time on any particular career path (or after a work out or particularly hot day – zing!) but Bieber needs to take a permanent hiatus. Go back to making YouTube videos and performing at a local church or something, bro.

Christina‘s 32nd birthday was last Tuesday, and she had a birthday party. This is what she wore.
I don’t even know what to do with this. She’s not wearing pants again. She’s wearing that tired old Mickey Mouse shirt, and even though I’m having trouble finding pictures right now, I’ve definitely seen her in it before. Which, obviously, no big deal, but when it’s a tired old Mickey Mouse shirt that’s ripped all to hell and has holes all over it so you can see her leopard print bra, it kind of is a big deal. A big deal that needs to be set on fire.
But that coat. There are no words that could possibly justify that coat. It’s something my crazy grandma would wear around the house when she’s feeling snazzy, but it has no place in the real world. However, I would like to look at her boots more closely, even though they’re probably awful.
So happy birthday, Christina. Here’s to 32 more years of stupid fashon.

I always think it’s so interesting when a person with a real talent for something screws up. You know what I mean? Like if Lindsay Lohan, who has a talent for doing drugs and committing crimes, was seen turning down meth and truthfully reporting the incident to a nearby police officer. That would be interesting, right? You’d want to see that.
That’s the reason that I’m showing you this video of Christina Aguilera performing at last night’s American Music Awards. She is a person with a real talent for singing, but in this video, she’s not good at it. Interesting!
But this whole thing is a mess, isn’t it? It doesn’t sound good, like at all, and it’s just this weird collaboration of awful and embarrassing. I mean, she’s allowed to have an off night, but it’s like everyone who was involved with planning and designing this performance had an off night, which is a lot less common.
But did you love it?
