Stars Who Can't Stand Christina Aguilera

We're just going to say it: Christina Aguilera broke the mold of the traditional Y2K pop star. The belly-baring, soulful crooner hit the scene hard in the late 1990s and early 2000s, ditching the bubblegum pop sounds of that era for raw tunes about love and self-confidence. She was a feminist before it was a popular stance for pop stars, releasing power anthems like 2002's "Can't Hold Us Down," and she was an advocate for LGBTQ rights well before it was really a "thing" in the entertainment world.

It's all paid off in her favor, too. Aguilera has had multiple top 10-charting albums on the Billboard 200, sold millions of records, and won a handful of Grammy Awards. A legion of fans adores her each and every move, but not everyone is team Xtina. In fact, there are plenty of stars who downright can't stand The Voice coach. Keep reading for the shocking shade some celebs have thrown at the incomperable Christina Aguilera.

The Wanted want nothing to do with Christina Aguilera

As relatable as Christina Aguilera may seem on TV, The Wanted said she's a real diva act behind the scenes. Speaking to New York's 92.3 FM radio station in 2012, the boy band claimed Aguilera gave the guys a serious cold shoulder after they performed on the NBC competition The Voice

"She was a bit scary to be honest," band member Max George said (via The Hollywood Reporter). "She was a total b***h!" Tom Parker blurted out, adding, "She might not be a b***h in real life, but to us, she was a b***h to us. She just sat there and didn't speak to us." Siva Kaneswaran echoed that sentiment, calling Aguilera "quite rude." Two days later, after a source close to the situation denied that anything negative went down between Aguilera and the band, Parker apologized for his remarks — kind of. He told TMZ, "We shouldn't have said it, to be honest with you. We just think manners cost nothing, you know what I mean?"

Mariah Carey has some choice words for Christina Aguilera

The battle between Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey started in 2006, when Aguilera told GQ that the "Heartbreaker" singer had slammed her at a party. Aquilera also made it a point to bring up Carey's 2001 mental breakdown. "One time, we were at a party and I think she got really drunk, and she had just really derogatory things to say to me," Aguilera alleged. "But it was at that time that she had that breakdown, so she might have been very medicated" (via People).

Of course, Mimi hit back at Xtina in an interview with Access Hollywood, accusing Aguilera of displaying "questionable behavior" and using her name for promotional gain. "I had hoped that Christina was in a better place now than the last time I saw her, when she showed up uninvited at one of my parties and displayed questionable behavior," Carey mused (via PopSugar). "It is in my heart to forgive and I will keep her in my prayers."

That wasn't enough to stop Aguilera, though. In 2015, an insider told the National Enquirer that Aguilera downright roasted both Carey and Britney Spears for their respective Las Vegas residencies. Aguilera reportedly said (via Celeb Dirty Laundry), "I won a Grammy this year! Why would I go to Vegas and join Britney and Mariah in an oldies act?" Carey never responded to the particular barb, seemingly taking her classic "I don't know her" approach to their beef.

Miley Cyrus was shocked by Xtina's behavior

You're not going to believe this one: Miley Cyrus was once allegedly mad at Christina Aguilera for complimenting her chaps — and yes, you read that correctly. 

In 2014, Radar Online reported that Cyrus refused to appear on The Voice after Aguilera tweeted a message about her wearing the Western-inspired garment at a concert. Many people thought Xtina was simply praising Cyrus' look when she tweeted: "Cheers from one dirrty girl to the next @MileyCyrus...wear [those chaps] loud & proud, girl-yes!" However, Cyrus reportedly believed the singer was shading her for mimicking Aguilera's "Dirrty"-era fashion sense. "Miley couldn't believe Xtina would tweet about her wearing chaps on stage, reminding everyone that she did it first," a source told Radar. "It was such a fake compliment and undermined Miley in the process."

By 2016, however, Cyrus had joined The Voice as a key adviser, and she and Aguilera reportedly bonded, often dancing and playing around together, per the Daily Mail. But this sisterhood of the traveling chaps proved to be short-lived. When Cyrus took Aguilera's spot on the show, a source told Radar that Aguilera was "[holding] a grudge" over the "Wrecking Ball" singer replacing her. It looks like Xtina may still have a chip on her shoulder because in May 2018, she appeared to give Cyrus a taste of her own medicine by copying her glittery lipstick look from Cyrus' 2015 music video for "Dooo It!"

Eminem directed some harsh lyrics at Christina Aquilera

Eminem has seen his fair share of beefs over the years, and one of those feuds involved pop princess Christina Aguilera. According to Billboard, it all started in 2000, when Aguilera gave an interview to MTV News criticizing Em's violent lyrics towards his on-off girlfriend Kimberly Scott, whom he was actually secretly married to at the time ... which Aguilera also leaked in the interview. After finding out she blew the lid off his secret nuptials, he issued a serious diss to her in his 2000 song "The Real Slim Shady." In the track, he accuses Aguilera of giving him an STD and, um, performing certain acts on MTV VJ Carson Daly and Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst.

The "Fighter" in Aguilera ultimately swept in for the win with a parody rap called "Will the Real Slim Shady Please Shut Up," in which she rapped (per People): "Little twit blasts me on his new CD. Why? / 'Cause I turned him down for a date / As for the question of who came first / Was it Carson Daly or was it Fred Durst?/ I'm sorry Slim, but this is gonna hurt / They both came closer than you ever will, jerk." Wow.

These two later appeared to bury the hatchet with a hug backstage at the 2002 MTV VMAs, but you be the judge of whether that was genuine or just Em trying to save face after she beat him at his own game.

Pink stood her ground against Xtina

Pink and Christina Aguilera's relationship reportedly reached a crossroads in the early 2000s when they — along with Mya and Lil' Kim — were collaborating on "Lady Marmalade" for the 2001 Moulin Rouge! soundtrack. According to Pink, there was a dispute over who would sing the high notes on the track, subsequently leading to a series of public and private spats between her and Aguilera. Things got so heated that Aguilera even allegedly tried to punch Pink in a club. "I was like, 'What's happening right now? What are you — what's happening?'" Pink recounted on an episode of Watch What Happens Live.

Years later, in August 2017, Pink let it be known on Twitter that she and Aguilera were no longer at odds. She also smoothed things over on Watch What Happens Live, telling host Andy Cohen that Aguilera is "a really sweet person. ... We made up on The Voice because I hadn't seen her in years and years and years and we became moms. We grew up, and we hugged it out. It's that simple, and I feel so good about that." 

Does that mean the famous "scowl" Pink gave her former rival while Aguilera covered Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" at the American Music Awards later that year was just coincidence? Who knows, but Aguilera did make it a point to discuss all that so-called water under the bridge in 2019 — yes, 2019 — by suggesting that the two pop stars were cool now because Pink has become "a different person."

Britney Spears 'can't believe' Christina Aguilera would stoop so low

Christina Aguilera pulled no punches about her feelings for Britney Spears in a December 2003 interview with Blender. She told the magazine (via E! News) that the "Toxic" singer was "distant" during rehearsals for their 2003 MTV Video Music Awards performance with Madonna and that she "seems like a lost little girl, someone who [desperately] needs guidance."

Spears didn't enjoy that assessment from her industry rival, telling Blender the following month (via Us Weekly): "A lost girl? I think it's probably the other way around. I can't believe she said that about me." She also offered up an explanation for her "distant" behavior. "When someone has been rude to you so many times, it's like, 'You know what, Christina, I'm really not about the fake anymore.'"

Aguilera subsequently ramped up the rudeness in a 2004 interview with Us Weekly. The "Beautiful" singer ripped into Spears for proposing to her now-ex Kevin Federline and buying her own engagement ring. "It looks like she got it on QVC," Xtina said of the five-carat sparkler. When asked about her thoughts on their wedding, Aguilera quipped, "I know Britney. ... She's not trailer trash, but she sure acts that way." Buuurn.

While Aguilera has since tried to make amends, don't count on seeing these two braiding one another's hair extensions any time soon.

Aaron Lewis didn't hesitate to judge

The national anthem is one of those songs that you better get right — no matter how difficult the lyrics might be. When Christina Aguilera screwed up her rendition of the song at the 2011 Super Bowl, Staind frontman Aaron Lewis slammed her for it, insisting she'd switched up the lyrics on purpose (although she said otherwise). Aguilera sang, "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last reaming" instead of "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming." 

Lewis' take? "I guess I don't understand how people who sing the national anthem can be so f**king self-absorbed that they would try to change that f**king song," he ranted. "If there is a single song in the history of this country that deserves no creative interpretation, it's that one."

Considering how offended he was by the gaffe, you'd think Lewis would know all the lyrics to the song himself, but when he was given the honor at Game 5 of the World Series in 2014, he arguably butchered the tune even worse than Aguillera did. The word "karma" comes to mind...

Kelly Osbourne got nasty

If there was any chance that Kelly Osbourne would become a fan of Christina Aguilera's, the pop star's 2000 Christmas album, My Kind of Christmas, ruined it. Osbourne slammed the album in an episode of The Osbournes, and after mocking Aguilera's vocals, she declared, "I'm not kidding you — I wanted to f**king stab myself." She later roasted Aguilera in the press, saying, "She is one of the most disgusting human beings in the entire world," and "I've seen drag queens who look better."

Aguilera followed up by reportedly confronting The Talk host at a club, and from there, things continued to escalate. According to MTV News, Pink subsequently called Xtina's music "crap" and called the singer a "cow." Things were quiet for a while after that, but, in 2011, Aguilera purchased the Osbourne family home, which led to a fiery, body-shaming clap-back from Osbourne in a 2011 episode of Fashion Police. "Maybe she is just becoming the fat b***h she was born to be," Osbourne said of Aguilera's weight gain (via Us Weekly). "I don't know. She was a c**t to me. And she bought my house! She called me fat for so many f**king years, so you know what? F**k you! You're fat too."

Osbourne appeared to end this ferocious feud on Watch What Happens Live in 2012, but considering their history, we suspect this Hollywood peace treaty is tenuous, at best.
