The American Music Awards happened and I don’t think anyone really cared that much, but here’s your outfit recap, just in case. Yeah, it’s a day late. Honestly, who really cares? We covered Katy Perry’s “is this offensive” Geisha performance, which was probably the most interesting thing of the whole night. So here’s the outfits, a touch late, but we can still have fun oooo-ing and aaaah-ing and WTF-ing. Which is what I’ll need your help with. I want you to pick the best, worst, and most WTF outfit of the night. Here we go!
Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World (stupid name) performed their single, ‘Say Something’ on The Voice a couple of weeks ago and it really freaked me out because I swear I’ve heard this song somewhere a LONG time ago and I can’t figure out where. In a movie? A TV show? I don’t really listen to the radio besides Radio 1, so I’m not sure where it could have been, but anyway, it’s an okay song, even if it is a little dramatic/cut out for a Nicholas Sparks movie.
It’s nice seeing Christina doing something that’s a bit more scaled back and isn’t all over the vocal charts. As she often coaches her contestants on The Voice, sometimes less is more and you don’t need be running scales every five seconds to prove that you’re a good singer. Now, if you don’t mind, I’m going to watch The Notebook.

Big news: Christina Aguilera feels sexy. And not just sexy, but, “sexier than ever” (People)! Good for her. I’m actually not 100% sarcastic about saying that. I know she’s struggled with weight issues in the past, so to be at a place where she feels “sexier than ever” is a great thing for her. Here’s more from her interview with Jay Leno, via People:
I’m a big micromanager. I’m a stickler about organization: Everything needs a place, a purpose. … I think every woman should relax and allow herself to be pleased in the bedroom. It’s the one place I can let go. [...] I’m an artist, and expressing myself in a sexual way, no matter how that changes throughout the years, is something that has always come naturally to me. At this point of my life, I’m 32 and I feel sexier than ever because you know what you want. [...] Effortless sexy is key. Everyone says be yourself, but I just don’t try too hard. That’s the biggest turn-off.
Some good advice in there. Let’s have a totally ridiculous poll on Christina Aguilera’s sexiness, shall we?

Lady Gaga went on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live (you know, the show where Jillian Michaels is persona non grata) and said a lot of stuff that is sure to induce eye rolling, but she’s well aware of that possible side effect.
Two words for you: lady pond. Gaga likes to refer to being with women as “dipping into the lady pond.” Here’s more from the Lady’s lips, via Daily News:
I like girls. I’ve said that [before]. I know people think I just say things to be shocking, but I actually do like p—y. It just depends on whose p—y it is. It’s similar to how I feel about guys. I like them because I find lesbians to be way more daring than straight men, when it comes to coming on to you. And I really like that. And it wasn’t until I found a guy that could come onto me as strong as a lesbian that I fell in love.
“The guy” is Taylor Kinney, for those not aware. He’s on a show called Chicago Fire and they met on the set of her “You And I” music video.
Look, if someone says they’re bisexual, I’m not going to argue with them. That’s not my place.
She also took time to clear up the fake-ass feud Perez Hilton created between her and Christina Aguilera. Via E Online:
I’m a very big fan of Christina Aguilera. From the very beginning of when my career started, there was all this controversy about the two of us. I always felt that it was very unfair. All I know is that people were talking about Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga in the same sentence, and I was nobody! I just think it’s very unfair of anyone to pit another woman against another woman, especially in the space of music when we are all just trying to be taken seriously.Christina is an incredible vocalist and an incredible artist.
From me to her, I’m so sorry for anything that anyone ever said to her because of my existence. And I hope that she never felt any way about it, because when I was 15, I was singing ‘I Turn to You’ at the top of my lungs trying to hit all her notes. So she was an inspiration to me to have a wider vocal range, and I just think it’s all total nonsense the way that they do that.
I’m with her on that bolded part! Overall it was a good interview in that she was super, super

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.
