Christina Aguilera Says Calls Lady GaGa Comparisons “Weird”

Don’t compare Christina Aguilera to anyone because she’s completely original. At least that’s what the singer claims to be in her latest interview in the May 17th edition of Billboard magazine. Aguilera had a lot to say about the constant comparisons being drawn between her and fellow Pop star Lady GaGa as well as why she isn’t inspired by making hit songs. Peep what she had to say below:

“I’m in it for the long haul, and a decade later in my career, I have nothing to prove. To anyone who wants to be negative, it’s like, ‘I’m obviously relevant enough to you for you to care and to talk and to evoke negative feelings inside of you.’ At this point in my career, I’m over any and all weird comparisons or negativity.”

And what did Aguilera have to say about making hit music? Here it is:

“There was actually a song that the label really wanted me to record, and I just said ‘no,’ because it didn’t fit on the album – it wasn’t creatively inspiring to me. They said, ‘It’s a hit, it’s a hit!’ And absolutely it’s a hit for someone. But it’s not for me, because when it jeopardizes my integrity too much I can’t do it. The hit thing… (sigh) ‘Who Let the Dogs Out’ was a f–king hit, you know what I mean?” {Source}

Aguilera is so right. Everyone knows that her ‘Stripped’ album and most of the tacks written for her by Linda Perry were in no way ‘inspired’ by P!nk’s ‘Missundaztood’ LP. Everyone knows that almost every ballad that she’s ever sung was in no way ‘influenced’ by Mariah Carey. Of course everyone knows that her ‘Dirrty’ video was not ‘modeled after’ Britney Spears’ ‘I’m A Slave 4 U’. Finally, everyone knows that her latest look and dance sound do not ‘resemble’ what GaGa has done in the least. Aguilera is completely, totally and absolutely original. She lives in a bubble and gets all her inspiration from the depths of her brilliant mind. Yeah.Right.

Sidebar: It’s great to see that Aguilera won’t jeopardise her integrity by making hit songs. It seems that her fans are making sure that her integrity remains intact because they won’t let her ‘Not Myself Tonight’ be a hit either.

    WHY SO BITTER? CAUSE SHE IS PRETTY, MILLIONARE and YOU ARE an ANNOYING GHETTO ASS SKEEZY S**** with STD and NO LIFE?

    FALL BACK LIKE WOW and POP OFF!

  6. 106th May 14, 2010

    Granted I AM an xtina fan, but you are not only being overly negative for no reason – but your facts are alllllll wrong.

    People should really have to fact-check and research their writing before they are allowed to publish to the public.

    First of all, ‘Beautiful’ is NOT an album, but rather a SINGLE – a SONG off the album titled ‘Stripped’… so there goes your credibility as you’re just throwing out random s*** that doesn’t make sense

    on TOP OF THAT – Linda Perry wrote a few songs WITH Xtina for that ‘Stripped’ album – and she loves Xtina and acknowledges that their work was for the most part a collaboration – “Beautiful” is the only song Linda wrote flat-out without Xtina’s input…

    As Linda Perry said on GOOD DAY LA (live TV) “Alecia (pink) acts like she discovered me” LOL… she knows Pink is a bitter b****, just like the person who wrote this biased and messy entry on ThatGrapeJuice.

    Obviously you care enough about Xtina to spend your time writing and hating on her… thanks for the promo and support for my girl!

  7. Woohoo May 14, 2010

    Haha, someone just got owned

  8. Brizz May 14, 2010

    Oh my god, whoever wrote this, you need help. Did Christina kill your mom?? You seriously need to put the keyboard down for a bit. I have seen lots if hate thrown at Christina, but this is just a mess. Good luck , and I hope u get the help u need.

  9. MARIAH May 14, 2010

    SIT YOUR ASS DOWN!

  10. Xadax May 14, 2010

    Treant u are officially a DELUSIONAL MONSTER & a HATER. U Know Xtina can outsing THEM ANYDAY. Her visions are straightforward not like Gagas

  11. Spaxicle May 14, 2010

    Haha, his views, though outrightly harsh, is a breath of fresh air. Heck, a writer of a music blog is entitled to his opinions, even if to some it may seem a little extreme. I’m not saying that I’m agreeing with him, but I think for once, outrightly criticizing isn’t so bad after all. I mean seriously, it mirrors many of the stans or fans or whoever else that comes on here and lash out not only at other artists, but against themselves too. The reality of it is, most of the commentors here are not that subtle nor selective in the choise of words that they use. With that said, I’m still not saying that airing your views, however critical, is a horrible thing. Just be a little more mindful and rational.

    As for the whole Christina-Lady GaGa issue, I just think addressing the comparisons drama is getting very old and boring. People just need to move on with life already, you know?

  12. Robert May 14, 2010

    Trent you are so RIGHT.
    Christina is a delusional B**** thats why she’s flopping right now. Is she f****** serious….like all her songs are such classy affairs.. that trash Woo Hoo does not have anything to do with integrity. Trying to save face and act like she dont care about success she she smells a messy FLOP on her hands.. H** HAVE A SEAT

  13. PhatMat May 14, 2010

    WOW TRENT!!!
    I used to actually have respect for you, but you completely lost me with that straight up hater s***!
    I swear I thought I was listening to a 14y.o girl throw a b**** fit!
    Sorry Sam, but ur homeboi neds to get his act together, this just made you and ur blog look really bad, and I’ve been readin TGJ for like 3 yrs now and that was the 1st time one of these posts really left a bad taste in my mouth, and I’m not even a X-tina stan at all

  14. steven May 14, 2010

    Wow this trent or whoever rights for this sight has it out for xtina bad wow he just mad she’s back and s*** hello if your in the music industry to have number one hits these days is pretty sad. Why I like christina she’s don’t care about hits or what people think of her which makes her stronger. Like sia quoted if christina s*** in a bottle we still love her.

  15. cb May 14, 2010

    Don’t go putting words in her mouth. She didn’t say any of those things. What the f*** is wrong with you?

  16. rated x May 14, 2010

    Thank you Trent for keeping it real. I’m sick and tired of the stans putting their favorite artists on a pedestal and act like these people are the s***.
    christina been in this business for over 10 years and shes still NOT international known like Britney, gaga, madonna, ect.
    shes trying to damn hard, im a fan of hers and her cockyness is just off the wall

    we all know u can sing christina, we all know u got talent. but damn honey yes u are obviously trying to get a hit, being b*** ass naked on magazines, and damn near copying britney and madonna for ur videos.

  17. Blu Majik May 14, 2010

    As a fan/stan of both artists, I have to say that if Xtina doesn’t like being compared, then she has that right. I’m sure TGJ hates being compared to other sites because you all feel that you’re the best for celebrity news (in my opinion its true lol). So I’m sure that if you and Christina feel that your work is not comparable, then you have the right to say that your work compares to no one and you feel that you’re the best. That’s how she feels. I don’t think Xtina is intentionally throwing shade. She’s someone who always speaks her mind, unfortunately her words may backfire sometimes, but I’m sure she doesn’t care. Stop with all the hate/bashing/shade throwing and accept that both artists produce great music. By the way they both can sing and have talent. I can see throwing shade if the artists does NOT have talent. lol

  18. Travis May 14, 2010

    Sam come back!

    I truthfully think that Trent is ruining the site. His commentary was so shady that it was uncalled for and served no purpose. It’s ok to have an opinion but this was just overboard. I think it was a bad idea to invite Trent on to this site. He’s ruining it.

  19. Travis May 14, 2010

    And I’m in no way shape or form a Christina stan.

  20. RihannasClit May 14, 2010

    Damn Trent, you done ripped this b**** a new asshole, LMAO!

  21. Xtinawinsalways May 14, 2010

    LOL… the hate some WEIRD people have towards Christina Aguilera baffles me. LMAO

    WTF is wrong with you? Reading these hateful articles about Christina… you’d think Christina punched the haters in their faces really hard! And so that’s why the haters are being so angry. LOL

    You need to calm down, haters.

    Christina never said anything about being absolutely original. Stop trying to find reasons to hate Christina. There are NONE.

    Christina is one of the best singers on the planet, a philanthropist, a great mother and wife with a great life. Why would anybody be mad? Relax, haters.

    Christina is here to stay. Don’t let your blood pressure get too high.. lol amazing.

  22. matt May 14, 2010

    LMAO this post made me laugh so much. so true!! britney, mariah carey and lady gaga (yes lady gaga) do not claim to be original, as much as the haters claim to think. christina is living in a bubble, yes she’s been out for ten years but her cockiness is really annoying me at the moment!!

  23. stan May 14, 2010

    while i personally think the gaga-xtina comparison doesn’t hold that much merit, christina just comes off as very stuck-up to me.

  24. Xtina_wins_at_life May 14, 2010

    The haters are crazy and deranged.

    Christina did nothing wrong. Apparently, she can’t defend herself if people talk crap about her? Otherwise, it makes her “cocky”? LOL incredible.

    Christina’s only problem is being so amazing and epic and versatile and talented. That’s her only problem. It makes the fans of other artists very nervous, I see.

    LOL whatever. Poor you, haters… don’t forget to control your blood pressure and watch your heart… LMAO. Xtina isn’t going anywhere.

  25. Yan May 14, 2010

    That’s it. this site is crap for me now. Bye.

  26. Rashaan May 14, 2010

    WOW Trent I am absolutely turned off by your statement! You are completely out of line! This makes me want to steer clear of THAT GRAPE JUICE! Never have I responded negatively to a comment because I really enjoy this website. I come here religiously to get the current updates and this statement just turned my breakfast in my stomach. SAM this is a NO NO! I definitely expect more from this website…..this was not at all CLASSY!

  27. Nick May 14, 2010

    WOW DUDE, that was a shady posting…STRIPPED WAS AMAZING, her 1st material was all girly pop (NOT HER), Britney & her came out 2gether, u cant say she copied, that was the in thing then…anyway, Christina made me a little upset yrs ago when she said Beyonce lyp sings… BUT shes come around since then (haha), I like Aguilera, this music is nice, & shes not like gaga, she was weird, wearing pink flamingo feather dresses b4 gaga came, gaga just stretches it more/

  28. UnLatina_Suxx May 14, 2010

    He got her together. The Truth hurts I see. Some people can’t take it in its purest form.

  29. Last Boy on Earth May 14, 2010

    lmao, f** has been picked and bullied at school and now if throwing hate everywhere, I dont blame you but you should get therapy

  30. Last Boy on Earth May 14, 2010

  31. Jerome May 14, 2010

    Oh Trent, she didn’t say anything wrong or awful. But as she had said, she managed to really get in your skin for you to post this distasteful hate message. I pray for her because she is being hated by people like you who she doesn’t even know.

    It’s funny because for someone who writes blog about music, you’re verging on desperate. You’re grasping on straws and controversies that Christina has outmatched and is now laughing at. Seriously Trent? For you to even bring Pink’s album in here (which I loved, by the way.) for comparison? That’s low and narrow, even for you.

    People are not dumb as you think they are Trent. They know good music. They would not settle for an artist who rips off on everybody. Christina will not be in this industry if she doesn’t have her own imprint. We have seen artists come and go because they never managed to make an impact with their work. For someone like Christina, who has been bashed, branded and labeled by many people, to still come out with a highly-anticipated (you’re continuous posts and vigil is a testament to that) album 10 years after her first appearance, is nothing short of amazing.

    Like it or not Trent, she’s here to stay. And no amount of hatred can change that. 🙂

  32. Jerome May 14, 2010

    And by the way Trent, you got me all confused on how you see one as an artist. You keep on hinting for the past posts that Christina’s NMT is not doing well on the charts, which is true. But on this post you really let the steam off.

    I’m not hating on your idol Kelly (she’s good, I most especially love her song Bad Habit), but why are you bashing Christina when Kelly never really had a solo hit? Aren’t you sending the wrong message out there? Why are you putting a standard for music when you’re preference is nowhere near it?

  33. ARTISTK May 14, 2010

    SHADY! LOVE IT!

  34. Sarah May 14, 2010

    LMAO Go, Trent! Preach that s***! The majority of the Christina stans on this site are complete idiots, and they can’t deal with the fact that you stated the TRUTH and ripped Christina a new asshole lmao!!

    Christina is fake as I don’t know what, and of course this b**** cares about hits. If she didn’t she wouldn’t be jumping on other female artists bandwagons by desperately trying to stay relevant and do what they do.

    Now because NMT flopped and even after her appearance on Oprah (lol) she wants to make an excuse for it by stating that she doesn’t care about hit songs. B**** please lol. As if having hit songs is a terrible thing.

    Also, if Christina didn’t care about the negativity she wouldn’t be discussing it with BB magazine and it seems to me that she came off defensive in that interview.

    B**** go some where with that nonsense. I won’t be buying her album lol. Christina wants to act as if she doesn’t care about being successful but I can see right through her fake ass.

  35. Anon May 14, 2010

    Seriously, this blog is starting to turn into some Perez Hilton s***. That hissy fit was a big turnoff.

  36. Black May 14, 2010

    Didn’t beyonce killed this b**** career back in 03.

  37. Black May 14, 2010

    U call beyonce fake. Smh xtina is the fakest of them all, just after reading a part of the interview says that she is the b**** to play with, I with gaga, she a refresher to pop music. She made it fun againg. We all know that Christina copied the he’ll out of gaga, we have proof. But her dumb ass stans can’t see it, but If it was rihanna, it would be a diffrent story, so to xtina
    stop trying to be like Madonna in these interviews, don’t let her voice fool y’all.

    Okay back in normal mode And out of Stan mode

    Trent u a fool for that 1, but it’s really true

  38. Anon May 14, 2010

    I’m still not seeing the Gaga comparisons. Aguilera has had a slutty wardrobe and platinum blond hair for years. I’ve only heard two songs from the new album (NMT and Lift Me Up), but neither sound like something Gaga would have recorded. She’s been doing high concept videos since…Fighter (maybe). I could see it if her sound was just like Gaga, but Aguilera still screeches at the top her lungs as usual. Nothing seems new about this. Seriously, WHAT AM I MISSING? SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN!

    @Jerome – Your right. I heard When Love Takes Over on the radio twice. Right now, the US is not checking for no Kelly Rowland. I wish her luck with her new album though.

  39. Jaz May 14, 2010

    wow..this “article” was completely biased..what’s wrong with u ??
    so u think Gaga is the most creative person on this planet ? or artists are not allowed to be inspired ?
    No matter what she says u guys will still bash her…how sad !

  40. Marko May 14, 2010

    Umm…..Has anyone who watched the Not Myself Tonight video ever seen Madonna’s Express Yourself video??? SO MANY shameless rip offs. The set, the outfits, the monacle, the bowl on the floor, men dancing in the rain in nothing but bluejeans, climbing on a guy in a bed with satin sheets, it goes on and on….Too bad because Christina is beautiful and talented and shes making herself look really desperate. (Also the song just sucks….)

  41. nate May 14, 2010

    Christina was speaking toward Akons comments.. she never said she was 100 percent original, she always says shes inspired by different artists.. it just doesn’t make any sense to take it to this level Trent. Don’t forget what your job is, deliver the music news, not spew hate. and for the record Linda Perry came to Christina, and Linda only wrote 3 songs on Stripped. so NO Stripped wasnt inspired by Misunderstood, two different albums.. and this will be my last view of this site.

  42. Trashyawnce May 14, 2010

    Honestly Floptina is the fakest most conceited b**** alive.
    She makes so many excuses that even her fans feel embarassed.

  43. MaZ May 14, 2010

    Why are you so bitchy Trent?

    Like someone said this blog is turning Perez Hilton sh*t!

    We all Know that the you’re a Gaga stan… but say what you want you can’t take away Christina’s talent.

    This blog is turning NEGATIVITY. If you don’t like someone, ignore him.

  44. MADONNA… May 14, 2010

    This SHOULD have been the cover of her album. Much sexier than that weird cheap photoshoped mechanical looking painted face pic.

    It would have been like a “Stripped” part 2 cover for 2010. Damn…that would have been a good idea.

    Do you guys think an album cover can make a break an album, as much as the songs on it? I think it sets the tone…and with her current cover I am kind SMH at it….I am sick of seeing upclose face shots for cover of albums.

    What are yor favorite album covers?

    Bad covers…
    Janet Jackason – 2.0 YO
    Keri Hilson – In a perfect World
    Ciara – Fantasy Ride
    Britney Spears – Blackout
    Madonna – Hard Candy

    RIHANNA – RATED R

  45. chocolate May 14, 2010

    OMG! Trent you are absolutely a trouble maker. I loveee it!

  46. rick May 14, 2010

    well put opinion at the end…she is full of herself

  47. Monigue May 14, 2010

    AGREE with Trent, well put opinion and comparisons, everyone can talk all the smack they want but the number will come in for the first week record sales in June. i think it will fail, anyone want to put some money where there mouth is

  48. Xtina_is_epic May 14, 2010

    Facts of life :

    Pink is not 100% original.
    Britney is not 100% original.
    Mariah is not 100% original.
    Lady Gaga is not 100% original.
    Christina is not 100% original.

    These days, in 2010, everything in the universe has been done. Cher, for example, had already done it all……

    So my question to the crazy haters is this… why are you angry, exactly? LOL? You think YOUR own favorite artist is more original than Christina? You are mad at Christina for being so epic and versatile? What’s really going on, haters? LMAO?

    Haters answer this… what exactly do you expect Christina Aguilera to do? What could she possibly do that won’t make you go insane with rage and envy? LMAO???

    You are all nuts. Christina, keep doing your own thing!!!!!! 🙂

  49. Last Boy on Earth May 14, 2010

    @madonna
    I hate the Rated R cover, it’s just, too emo..

  50. Xtina_makes_you_mad May 14, 2010

    Haters are angry because Christina keeps punching them in the face with her common sense, fearlessness, realness, epic quotes and epic vocals.

    Christina is a woman who’s vocals are a magical power and she’s extremely proud of her job and music. Her goal is to please herself. Not Earth’s entire population. She’s just chill like that. She laughs at the haters.

    That’s why the haters react so savagely and get so horrifically pissed. LOL

    I am a fan of Christina EPIClera for life!

  51. Keepin it real May 14, 2010

  55. chocolate May 14, 2010

    f*** christina that b**** got a big head on her shoulders thinking she the only b**** who is original. she copies madonna and god knows who else. flop-tina im boycotting your bionic album im sure its 100% generic.

  56. Dave May 14, 2010

    Cleary Trent wants some attention, not gonna go there. @ Black Yeah… Bey killed her career when Christina’s tour was the highest grossing over 2007 (her Back to Basics tour late 2006-the end of July 2007) of $90 MILLION, surpassing BEYONCE’S tour. Oh yeah… that sounds about right. She’s sold more records than Bey WITHOUT A Re-release, thats sounds about right. She has still been putting out PLATINUM albums since 03 when Beyonce was out. Yup, sounds perfectly plausible. Beyonce career is near dead now, seeing as to how she’s using artist for her own buzz. That is all..

  57. Maestro May 14, 2010

    WOW TRENT lol. H8R-AIDE tasting pretty good these days huh?

    Christina Aguilera remains the only mousecattier that I actually buy music from. Fortunately for lovers of QUALITY MUSIC, her music, her style, her fashion, and sense of womanhood are all her own and nobody can take it from her, so she gets a lot of flack because you can’t put her in a box. You cant convince her to record something just because you like it and therefore box her in. SHEs NOT THAT TYPE OF ARTIST. Christina will be around for years to come because she has what a lot of signed “aritst” don’t have, RAW TALENT. So at the end of the day, she take off all the make-up, take off the designer clothes, pull her hair weave out, and still stand at a mic and sing. Not too many of these hoochies can do that today. You take away the auto tune, remove their make up, and their clothes( or put clothes on some of them lol) and you wouldn’t recognize her from the girl standing next to her.

  59. SOOS May 14, 2010

    Trent, I don’t know how much you have been paid to write this, but this blog and you are disgusting AND NOT RELEVANT anymore. You sold your soul to the devil.
    But what goes around, comes around…

    You really don’t know anything about Christina if you really think that you wrote up here. I wish you had had an abusive childhood with full of terror. Than you should shut up….
    So Chrsitina told her father that please dadyy beat me, because I will be able to copy other poor artists???? YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY ABNORMAL AND JEALOUS person.

    THIS BLOG IS OVER.

  60. Richard May 14, 2010

    Am I the only one who thinks Christina has a really unappealing attitude this go-around? I mean she has a slight air of arrogance about her. I mean, I can understand her frustration, but she could deflect it so much better. This whole I’m-a-legend attitude is horrid.

    I mean not to draw comparisons, but Britney has been savaged by the media with regards to her artistic integrity, and never ever have I seen her talk like Christina.

  61. XTINA_EPICLERA May 14, 2010

    Seriously, the haters are nuts and paranoid. Christina is not arrogant. She’s just a very PROUD woman. I guess this bothers the haters a lot. They do not want Christina to be proud of her music and her job. Well, that’s not Christina’s problem. That’s only your problem, haters. STAY MAD, HATERS.

    Christiona SH*TS on your negativity. You don’t like it? You can stay mad!!!!!! LMAO………..

    Oh my gosh, Christina is the best singer ever. LOL My favorite forever.

    Poor haters. They want to see Christina sit and smile and not be epic and leave the music industry. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!!! LOL……….

  62. SOOS May 14, 2010

    My final thought: this comparison is a sick and frustrated thing, because

    Lady GaGa is an AUTO-TUNE Princess.

    Christina is a LOVE QUEEN.

    ;)))

  63. XTINA_EPICLERA May 14, 2010

    Again, poor ridiculous haters.

    They want Christina to have Britney’s personality now?? LMAO!!!!!!!

    No Christina only needs to be herself.

    You mad? Stay mad. Christina poops on you and your nonsense.

  64. SOOS May 14, 2010

    My previous one was a lil’ bit mistyped 😀

    My final thought: this comparison is a sick and frustrated thing, because

    Lady GaGa is an AUTO-TUNE Princess.

    Christina is a LIVE QUEEN.

    😉 🙂

    Man DONW Xtina stans! Man DOWN!

    Ya girl dont make no damn sense this go round. She flopping like no tomorrow and ya’ll can’t face the facts.
    And if ya’ll don’t like what Trent posts GET THE F*** OUT!

  69. ~Team Weezy~ May 14, 2010

    Trent is one million percent correct!!!!!!!!!

    First off, it has become continually evident that when an artist says that “my focus isn’t to have a hit” or “It’s not about selling a lot of albums,” is purely a disclaimer to something that has failed/is failing. I mean come on, get real!

    Secondly, when Christina first came out she was following the trend of “corny pop” like Britney, Backstreet boys, and Nsync. There was absolutely nothing original about her in the beginning, which has followed her until now. Every album resembled whatever was popular at that time.

    Trent is very on point about the Linda Perry thing. NO ONE was concerned about Linda writing S*** until P!nk did it. PERIOD! After P!nk’s album did so well, THEN Christina wanted to work with Linda which, in result, tarnished P!nk and Linda’s relationship.

    Now that Pop/Electro/Dance is “popular,” NOW she’s all of sudden into that. WHAT??? Please! That’s straight BULL!

    and your opinions … does it come from the depths of your brilliant mind ?

    you’d better brainwash yourself 🙂

    Wow you are a fricking bitter hater.
    The irony is so funny cause it’s just about the weird stupid people like YOU that Christina was talking about in the interview.

    I hope Sam comes back, cause I have this site bookmarked and I love it, but the “articles” are becoming so stupid and hateful, that I’ll have to look elsewhere.

  79. SOOS May 14, 2010

    Can you offer NORMAL, INDEPENDENT, OBJECTIVE (not paid off by some labels and artist), eclectic high qualified music BLOGS on the web?

    Because this blog is finally over. A lot of people feel it as I read the comments.

    Once upon a time it was quite enjoyable blog with a good atmosphere, but in the recent half or one year it has become the mouthpiece of some labels and artists, who obviously pay a lot of money for Trent or Sam, and it has become full of hatred, comparison, double standard and other disgusting things. With one simple world: S***.

  80. trucie May 14, 2010

    lmao!

  81. Angie May 14, 2010

    Christina came across kind of cocky in this interview. Her mistake is thinking she has nothing to prove. Sorry Xtina, in this industry, you always have something to prove.

  82. C May 14, 2010

    Please go in on her Trent, she is smelling her little self a little too much

  83. DIVAZZ May 14, 2010

    @ BEYONCE V.S THE INDUSTRY WHY ARE YOU SO MAD ESPECIALLY TOWARDS.LOL IT MAKES ME LAUGH AT YOUR IGNORANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOL FLOPTINA
    Not Myself Tonight is failing so hard and even WooHoo which has one of the biggest rappers in the game is gonna flop…Xtina needs to change her attitude and image FAST if she wants this album to be big.

  86. BEYONCE VS. THE WORLD May 14, 2010

    @DIVAZZ I DON’T HATE I JUST TELL THE TRUTH AND A BLOG IS MAKE FOR U TO SAY WHAT U FEEL SO I DON’T HAVE TIME TO TRY AND SPARE HOTINA’S FEELINGS NOW HOW U DOING

  87. BEYONCE VS. THE WORLD May 14, 2010

    BUT I WILL SAY MICHAEL WAS PICKED ON BUT I HAVE NO PITTY FOR HOTINA

  88. Trouble(x)1000 May 14, 2010

    GET HIM OUT OF HERE ASAP…I HATE HIM WITH A PASSION…I RESPECT THATGRAPEJUICE BUT IF THIS C*** KEEPS GOING OFF LIKE THIS, IM GOING TO WRITE THE SITE OFF COMPLETLY…AND IM SURE EVERYONE ELSE IS FEELING THE SAME WAY…CLEAN IT UP COKE W****…

  89. Kyle May 14, 2010

    LOL, this post is funny. I don’t agree with Trent fully about Christina getting her creativity from other artists until this era. I seriously see Lady Gaga in everything she does now and that’s definitely not a good look for her. I think Christina’s best era was “Back 2 Basics” in 2006 because she was completely being her and in a lane that nobody else was even touching. I wish her much success witht this era and I will probably go out and support her because I really think she’s a great artist.

  90. Kyle May 14, 2010

    @ Angie, you are so damn right. Christina takes a lot of time off in between albums which is fine but she can’t expect all her fans to stay with her and understand her new direction everytime she comes back out. The industry is ever-changing and if you want to stay relevant, you have to prove something. That is Christina’s biggest mistake right now. People obviously aren’t giving her the warmest welcome back to the scene, so like you said Angie, I think she still has something to prove.

  91. Keris May 14, 2010

    Trent just wants some attention… twatface!

    haha. whatever….

  92. OPPA May 14, 2010

    AND IF U DONT LIKE HER F*** YOU.

    THAT HEADLINE, ITS AS IF SHE SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED LADY GAGA, WHEN SHE’S SPEAKING COMPARISONS IN GENERAL.

    PATHETIC. I LOVE LADY GAGA, BEYONCE, MARIAH AND BRITNEY. BUT I AM A CHRISTINA FAN THRU THICK AND THIN BUT I JUST CANT UNDERSTAND WHY YOU HATE HER SO MUCH?

    THE AMOUNT OF SARCASM YOU HAVE IN YOUR TONE OF WRITING IS UNCALLED FOR. LIKE, IF THAT’S EVEN TRUE, WHY EXERT SUCH EFFORT JUST TO EXPRESS YOUR HATE?

    DONT WRITE FOR THATGRAPEJUICE BECAUSE I LIKED THIS SITE FOR ALL THE UPDATES ON URBAN MUSIC, BUT RECENTLY ITS JUST ONE HATE ARTICLE AFTER ANOTHER. WHY NOT JUST CREATE AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SITE FOR THAT PURPOSE?

  93. OPPA May 14, 2010

    (see attachment)

    TROUBLEX1000 YOU ARE SO RIGHT… I RESPECT THATGRAPEJUICE FOR THEIR SUPPORT ON UNDERAPPRECIATED ARTISTS LIKE MICHELLE AND KELLY , BECAUSE IT SEES REAL TALENT… BUT NOW ITS JUST TURNED INTO A DISGUSTING BLACK PROPAGANDA SITE

  94. Justsayinit May 15, 2010

    Trent just want some attention, he wants as many comments that he can get… It sad.. but those thing happen you dont have attention in your real life…
    One thing is being real like Sam was real the other day when he said that Christina doesnt have to be naked to be s***, thats was real, but this is just pure hating… but who cares… I mean who is Trent? … NOBODY.

  95. bips May 15, 2010

    trent stop the crack!!!!!!!that thing is killin ya objectivity

  96. Last Boy on Earth May 15, 2010

    I “hate” Christina Aguilera but she is a pop singer, pop singers go with the trends, she isnt diferent of anyone, if dance music is trending right now she does pop music, I dont know what is the matter… Everyone is doing it, less hate, more peace

    SO YOU ARE RIGHT !!!!

  101. Landen May 15, 2010

    I sense an unbelievable about of fear coming from this so called excuse for a writer Trent.

    Your a Lady Gaga d*** riding lady gaga stan! First of all, Britney never wrote or recorded

    anything like Dirty. Slave for you sounded nothing like Dirty and although the imaging was

    somewhat similiar. News Flash Dude! Woman vocalists have been doing the S***

    and Provocative imagery to accompany there songs since Madonna and others who came

    before. And name one Britney or gaga song that has near the fire or sounds anything even

    remotely like FIGHTER? And name one video that looks like it before it came out. Im sorry.

    I wasnt gonna take it this far, but Gaga took alot of imagery from Christinas videos. Just

    watch Fighter, Beautiful, Candyman, and Keeps getting better! Then watch a few of gagas

    videos for Bad romance, Paparazzi, and pokerface.

  102. Caitlin May 15, 2010

    Holy crap, Trent. Calm down, please.

  103. Caitlin May 15, 2010

    @BEYONCE VS. THE WORLD

    I’m a fan of Beyonce, but seriously, you don’t think she follows trends as well?
    EVERYONE who wants to stay on top of the music charts follows trends!
    Come on, now.
    None of these people are original.
    Even LADY GAGA, she’s inspired by Grace Jones and Madonna. And still people consider her to be original.
    Maybe they’re just ignorant.

    Yes, Beyonce has good music. But you cannot deny the proof. No hate.

  104. Gucci May 15, 2010

    Trent honey! Was it that serious? Did Christina wrong you in such a way that you found it necessary to throw a b**** fit? Sweetie you need to go to the nearest drug store and buy a tampon. Christina has been in the game much longer than Gaga, and while I don’t like her song and I admit it is flopping, I still believe that she is way more talented than you give her credit for. Stop hating and comparing her to everyone because for some reason eveyone you stan for has flopped so really why are you throwing shade? Girl BYE. You’re so messy! Such a damn queen.

  105. Jayy May 16, 2010

    Your messege at the botton was pure disgust, Horrible way of blogging… get real man.

  106. Landen May 16, 2010

    @ Gucci. I DEFINITELY SECOND THAT STATEMENT!

    I sense an unbelievable about of fear coming from this so called excuse for a writer Trent.

  107. dyndyn May 16, 2010

    wow trent…that was a little strong. it’s not doubt christina is talented as all hell…and in truth a decade later she can do whatever the f she wants. really….let’s see gaga’s evolution in a year—not saying that she won’t be around, but let’s give it some time. 2 years does not a reign make.

    more power to you cristina, i was never the biggest fan, but now with this little blurb from trent i am looking forward to purchasing your ‘un-original’ album.

    next…

  108. Jammy May 16, 2010

    I NEVER call out the blog posters, but Trent you fail in every way possible. Stop hating on Xtina, who is obviously more talented than all the women you just mentioned above.

  109. Michael May 17, 2010

    f*** whoever wrote this! lady gaga is a t*****

  110. Keri May 17, 2010

    Damn! From the sounds of things, we’re all MUSIC fans here, doesn’t matter who your favourite is… and if you love music, stop hating on indiviual artists as they all have their own contribution to make and it’s incredibly silly and immature to say that Beyonce is better than Xtina is better than Mariah is better than… blah blah blah! All these people are talented, or they wouldn’t be where they are!

  111. ashton June 1, 2010

    bahahaaa, these haterrs are crackin me up! they talkin out they ass with this stupid s***.
    i am sooooo sick of hearing how christina is copying everything off of gaga. christina was around wayy before gaga, doin her own thing, wayyy before gaga. do none of yaw remember christinas crazy style years ago? walkin round the red carpets with flamingo dresses and hugeee-ass affro wigs! yeah, maybe christina wasn’t the first artist to be crazy and eccentric, but gaga SURE AS HELL wasnt either! Now im a fan of both christina and gaga, so no hate here. they both have talent (but we all know who has more!) and they are both are great artists! And anyone saying christina copied gagas music style too is complete idiots. I’ve been listening to christinas new music and it sounds NOTHING like gaga. two totally different styles. end of story.
    and as for this dumb ass “flop-tina” nonsense, let’s go back. remember that huge album a few years ago called “stripped”?? guess what, the leading single from that album wasn’t very successful either! but we all know how successful that album came to be. so STFU. and if you people still feel like being immature jackasses and posting “floptina” s*** everywhere you can find, why don’t you AT LEAST wait till it does flop. i mean come on, it hasnt even been released yet. andd i doubt it will flop, jus saying.
    LMAO, i find it completely hilarious that anyone can even try to compare christina and britney. of all the comparisons i’ve ever heard, thats the dumbest. That’s like comparing avril lavigne and paris hilton. im pretty sure the one similarity is the color of their hair. for one (no offense to britney because i am a fan of hers too), Christina is in a whole other leage than her, skill-wise. Britney’s voice is not very impressive. Their music sounds absolutely nothing alike either. Have you ever heard anything remotely close to Fighter or Aint No Other Man from Britney? nope. It’s also funny that some of yaw have said that Christina was copying Britney and Backstreet Boys and such even in the beginning. Because if youll remember, the label she was under at that time wouldn’t let her do the kind of music she wanted. She had no control over it. and she specifically made it a point to change her look and sound away from Britney’s look after that album.
    you haters are soo dumbb!! get your facts straight. i cant waitt to get bionic on the 8th!!

  112. Patty June 2, 2010

    I love both Christina and GaGa. Christina has that kind of… feeling to her voice that gives me shivers, and GaGa is really out there and a big inspiration. Yes, I do think that Christina did something similar to GaGa and Madonna with the Not Myself Tonight video, but she’s just trying to get noticed again. Is that so wrong? So Christina isn’t 100% original. Neither is anyone else. This is really hateful towards Christina. I think you need to tone it down just a bit. Linda Perry just didn’t give P!nk the song because she didn’t feel she was ready for it. And P!nk hates Christina for that. Some of the things Christina says do sound bitchy, but don’t most artists say bitchy things? Like the whole Eminem and Mariah thing, Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas, and many others. So we need to calm down.
