My mother watches The Voice, thus, I have to hear all of her thoughts on the judges. She says Cee Lo Green is “creepy” and she likes Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, but she always has harsh words for Christina Aguilera. Considering I’ve never watched the show, I only have one question: what did you expect? Christina is a well-known monster. Every story about her these days involves her narcissism, her boozing, her ridiculous makeup, hair and clothing issues, and her general bitchery. Anyway, a few weeks ago, The Voice had some guest stars on – the UK boy-band The Wanted. I don’t know anything about The Wanted, so don’t ask. I was just watching this video (below) of the boys being interviewed, and they seem just like normal British lads, nothing special, but nothing horrible either. Anyway, during the interview, The Wanted lads claimed that during their appearance on The Voice, Christina was a total bitch to them. Around the 3-minute mark, that’s when they start talking about Christina.
Them’s fightin’ words! British boy band The Wanted performed their new single on The Voice last week–and didn’t hold back when asked about their experience in a recent interview with radio station 92.3 NOW FM.
Judge Christina Aguilera “is a total bitch,” the band’s Tom Parker ranted in the video. “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.”
“She was quite rude,” his bandmate, Siva Kaneswaran, added. “Who does that?”
Max George–who shared a friendly backstage smooch with Jennifer Lopez when the group recently stopped by American Idol–agreed with his pals’ assessments. “She was a bit scary, to be honest.”
When asked to compare their time on the two shows, George explained, “J. Lo’s hot, Christina’s nothing special.”
The Wanted performed on The Voice the same night Justin Bieber showed up to debut a preview of his “Boyfriend” video–and say Aguilera was equally cold to the “Baby” crooner, making a face as Bieber went in for a hug and a kiss on the cheek.
Aguilera, for her part, denies she snubbed the 18-year-old.
“Haha,” the singer tweeted last Wednesday. “Can’t a girl have a little Bieber Fever after getting kissed by the Biebs?”

Part of this stuff (especially the Bieber thing) is that Christina is being pushed as “the bitchy judge” as a stereotype to get people to hate-watch the show just to see Christina’s latest act of bitchery. Like, people used to watch American Idol just to see Simon Cowell be rude and mean. But another part of it is that Christina’s default setting is pretty bitchy and monstrous. She just doesn’t seem like a nice person. At all. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, and being nasty and rude (and drunk!) has obviously gotten her this far. So whatever. I doubt Christina is losing any sleep over this. And by “sleep” I mean “she passed out after doing two dozen tequila shots.”
