Forgive us this uncouth comparison, but farting is a lot like celebrity gossip. As in: occasionally, the one who denied it supplied it. (Also see: the one who smelt it, dealt it.) Today, Christina Aguilera is busy denying that she has a problem with Lady Gaga and went so far as to post a statement about her Gaga issues (or lack thereof) on her website. An interview with Out claims she called Gaga a “newcomer” who is “fun to look at,” so Xtina responded today saying:
I would like to take a moment to clarify something that has been brought to my attention this morning. It is very easy for comments to be taken out of context and create unnecessary drama-especially between us women. So I would like to tell you all directly so my words can not be misconstrued to sell someone else’s story…I have absolutely nothing against Lady Gaga or any other female artist in this business. I think she is great, and I appreciate any woman fearless enough to go against the norm. She has earned her success with hard work and a clear focus and I have nothing but respect for that.
There is room for all of us on everyone’s iPods.
This is not the first time I have been unfairly pitted against another female artist but it will be the last time I comment on the matter.
“Can’t hold us down….”
We aren’t saying that Christina is just trying to save face here, but if we were doing the glam, blond diva thing and some “newcomer” came along and starting belting out pop tunes and changing hairstyles every day, we’d be a little annoyed and we don’t blame her if maybe she is just a teeny weeny bit irritated by Gaga. Come on Xtina, you can tell us the truth.
