Christina Aguilera has just been nominated for two Grammys! She is up for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance alongside Demi Lovato for their feminist song “Fall in Line” and Best Rap/Sung Performance for “Like I Do” featuring Goldlink.
Last year, Christina released her eighth studio album, Liberation. This was the first time in six years that the 37-year-old Grammy winner has released an album, and her fans couldn’t have been more excited to hear her new tracks.
The release of Liberation came 19 years after Christina Aguilera dropped her self-tilted first album in Aug. 1999. Months after the album’s release, Christina would go on to score her first Grammy, beating out Mickey Mouse Club co-star Britney Spears for the coveted Best New Artist award.
Now she has won six GRAMMY Awards, including one Latin GRAMMY Award.
The 61st Grammy Awards airs Sunday, Feb. 10th at 5PM PST
Christina Aguilera has admitted she had no choice but to step down from The Voice because she was not happy with things going on behind the scenes.
Xtina starred as a judge on the talent show between 2011 and 2016 – decided to walk away from the NBC programme.
The Beautiful says she wasn’t willing to carry on with the show and let certain things slide, but admitted it was a real learning curve.
Appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, she said: “Well I can’t knock it, I mean it was an experience in my life and I think everything has a learning curve and something to be experienced. I think that I did what I could with the position I was given and I have to keep it real on a certain level. I’m just, you know, I’m not a passive girl that’s just gonna sit there and be okay with certain things.”
The show’s host then asked whether she was happy with the experience she had, and Aguilera replied: “Well – That’s a very complicated answer, but I just saw some ins and outs and inner workings that I was not happy [with].”
Christina says being on the show made her realise that her music career is where she should be focusing her energy.
She concluded: “For me, I just know I needed to step away and get back to what I know that I love to do and how I could best give to the world in my own way.”
Xtina previously said she was a big fan of the blind audition phase of the show because she felt it was more meritocratic.
However, the chart-topping star ultimately decided to quit the program because she was unhappy with the general working environment, saying it was something “no one would want to put up with” on a daily basis.
She shared: “The blind audition idea was really intriguing to me because it was an opportunity for anyone to get on stage and be discovered, regardless of how they looked. I also saw blatant things that I didn’t think were OK and that I am sure no one would want to put up with in the work environment. It was important for me to step away.”
Christina Aguilera attended with her friends (Jeri Slaughter, Gilbert Saldivar, Etienne Ortega, Paul and Monique) at Lady Gaga’s Enigma show in Las Vegas last night. This is the last show of Lady Gaga. Next stop on May.

Step into a whole new Xperience! Christina Aguilera transformed the iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles into another realm for an intimate preview of what to expect at her forthcoming Las Vegas residency, Christina Aguilera: The Xperience, on Thursday, January 31. Fresh off the heels of the announcement and her Liberation tour, the songstress also bared her soul during a candid Q+A hosted by songstress Elle King .
“I’m so excited for this time and this moment and this exciting new chapter and what it has in store,” Xtina told the crowd after kicking off the evening with a perfectly modernized rendition of “Genie In a Bottle” and “Beautiful.” “I’m kind of accumulating all these new ideas and inspirations that have been bubbling inside me.”
The Grammy nominee previously announced the residency live on On Air With Ryan Seacrest, revealing the 16-show stint will transport fans into another reality. “The Xperience” will debut at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood on May 31st and promises a multi-sensory performance with tons of visual effects, wardrobe changes, and of course, all of Xtina’s incredible music from throughout her career.
“It’s an opportunity to put on a mask and be whoever you want to be, or take one off and play,” Xtina teased during the Q+A with Elle, revealing she hopes to allow fans a night of escape and to connect with their inner-freedom and fantasy.
The songstress — who also opened up about her childhood and courageous collaboration with Demi Lovato “Fall In Line,” among other candid topics — expressed she wanted to prioritize her role as mom before returning to the road and stage.
iHeartRadio LIVE: Christina Aguilera Celebrating The Xperence Las Vegas Launch #iHeartXtina
The iHeart show is in celebration of the pop star’s The Xperience Las Vegas residency, which will open at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Friday, May 31, 2019.
Christina Aguilera was willing to spill so much tea during her appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” she stuck around almost 20 minutes extra for a packed aftershow of answers.
While she did plead the fifth to one question, it wasn’t during Andy Cohen’s infamous segment. She fearlessly tackled all three of his questions, addressing Eminem’s ongoing beef with her and those allegations Pink made back in 2017 that Christina once tried to take a swing at her.

“Look at her, look at me. I wouldn’t swing on her,” Christina laughed. “She’s like– she can beat my ass, are you kidding me? She could really beat my ass then.”
In fact, Christina has a far different memory of her experience with Pink back in the day. “I seem to have a different memory of a night we had at a club where we played spin the bottle,” she said. “I have a love memory, she has a bad memory.”
Andy cleverly got her to admit that she remembered an actual kiss. “How did you know that?” she asked him, but he was just reading the conversation.
“I was excited about a kiss, I was like, ‘Oh a kiss and all’s good,’” Christina said. “Then she put up her hand like this and I was like, ‘Oh, okay. That’s what we’re doing, alright.’ She don’t wanna get dirrty.”
Christina was referencing the ages-ago beef between the women that surfaced after the recording of their megahit collaboration “Lady Marmalade.”
” I know she has some feelings or whatever about how the recording of “Lady Marmalade” went down and all that,” Christina recalled. “I know [on] the actual video, she intimidated me because she was heckling me a little bit behind the director and I was like, ‘What’s going on?’ But that’s what she did back then.
“But she’s like a different person now, she’s a mom, she’s cool.” And apparently the women are cool, too, as Christina infamous has another collaboration with Pink in the vault that both women are being very coy about, and she cited Pink as having the best vocals of her “rivals” from back in the day, Britney Spears, Pink, Mandy Moore and Jessica Simpson.
The Real Slim Shady
But while things seem to be good on the teen queen front, Andy had to ask why Christina thinks Eminem is still throwing shade at Aguilera after all these years. He first came after her in the lyrics of “The Real Slim Shady” in the early 2000s and now again last year in a freestyle.
“Yeah, I mean, that’s real thirsty,” Christina said, proving he’s not the only one who can be shady. “I don’t know what’s going on there. That’s real in the past and, you know, it was thirsty then it’s thirsty now.
She went on to add, “It’s not nice to go after anybody, especially a female in this business and now, what we’re looking at and seeing come to the forefront, it’s just, get a new gig. Have something else to talk about.”
Finding her voice
While she may have avoided some questions, or outright misunderstood others, there was no doubt that Christina knew exactly what she wanted to say about her time on “The Voice” after appearing in seven of the first ten seasons. The show is heading into its 16th cycle.
“Well I can’t knock it, I mean it was an experience in my life and I think everything has a learning curve and something to be experienced,” Christina said carefully. And while she loved working with her teams over the years, the show wasn’t exactly what she expected overall.
When Andy asked if she wasn’t happy with how that experience turned out, Christina said, “Well– That’s a very complicated answer, but I just saw some ins and outs and inner workings that I was not happy.”
Andy then tried a different angle, asking if the experience was a bit of a mixed bag for her, then? “I think that I did what I could with the position I was given and I have to keep it real on a certain level. I’m just, you know, I’m not a passive girl that’s just gonna sit there and be okay with certain things.”
But she would not elaborate on what those things were. “For me, I just know I needed to step away and get back to what I know that I love to do and how I could best give to the world in my own way,” she said. And so she returned to her music.
When asked about her feelings on Lady Gaga removing the R. Kelly version of her Christina collaboration single “Do What U Want,” Christina admitted that she’d watched the recent “Surviving R. Kelly” docuseries and found it to be very powerful.
“I was extremely moved by that whole show,” she told Andy. “It was very heavy for me. I actually went through a lot of–” At this point, she trailed off in a meaningful way before redirecting her own thoughts by simply saying, “Let’s not really go there, but it absolutely [touched me].”
She went on to speak more generally about coming up in this business from a very young age, as she did. “When you’re in this business, you’re exposed to so many predators and so many things,” she said. “Watching what had happened to Aaliyah and everything, you’re exposed to so much at such an early age.”
She acknowledged that there is still a lot of work to be done to make the entertainment industry safer for young girls and women, but supported Gaga’s decision fully. “I think she absolutely did the right thing,” she said. “I love that she spoke and addressed it and she showed her support.
The music, persona and wild styles of Christina Aguilera have resonated within the LGBTQ community for years and become a common go-to for drag queens looking to honor something instantly recognizable. As evidence, Andy brought out three drag queens representing different eras of Christina’s career including “Lady Marmalade” (Gia Gunn), “Not Myself Tonight” (Farrah Moan) and “Dirrty” (Kickxy Vixen)
While all three were fierce in their own ways, it was up to Christina to make the final decision and see who would win the first-ever “Christina Draguilera Pageant.”
We love the name, we love the concept, and we found ourselves absolutely torn between all three of them. Luckily, it wasn’t up to us. Check out who Christina picked in the video above and see if she got it right.
