Called to Jimmy Fallon‘s office pre-show Friday night, Christina Aguilera put on the week’s best late night performance without even so much as a mic or a stage set to assist her. Rather, Jimmy on the iPhone dial-tone, The Roots with the office supplies — like, the full Staple’s circular’s worth of office supplies: pencils, scissors, tissues, a water cooler, legal pads, etc. — and Christina with the stapler, the motley crew jammed out Lotus single “Your Body” desk-side. Of course she’s got a good sense of humor and a cool die-job, but what really makes this office space performance work is Christina’s killer voice. And maybe a little bit Jimmy’s sexy moves? But mostly that voice, because caught up with her judging on The Voice or man-splattering videos as we can get, we really shouldn’t forget that that Christina’s a real powerhouse ready to bring down whatever space you give her!
Still, though, we wonder if we should add that stapler to this list.
Thankfully we survived Hurricane Sandy. Aside from a few power outages, flooded subways and cabin fever we weathered the storm with our Hurricane Sandy playlist. Surviving is one thing, but damage to the states of New Jersey and New York City is another. It’s going to be a long road to rebuilding and restoration. In an effort to help victims affected by the storm NBC Universal announced it will hold an one hour telethon with funds donated to the Red Cross. Read more…
We’re getting freaky with our Friday Face-Off Music Video poll this week, because Halloween is here and we know at least half of you will be barely dressed as sexy-somethings, tricking for adult treats this weekend. Don’t lie. It’s okay, because Lady Gaga‘s “Judas” and Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mýa and P!nk‘s collaboration “Lady Marmalade” feature costumes worse than yours. Nothing tops pop stars posed as prostitutes: Gaga as Mary Magdalene and X-tina’s crew (un)dressed as Moulin Rouge’s best. So, who has the freakier video?
You don’t have to be a Little Monster to freak over this racy clip. It has everything you want in a Lady Gaga spectacle. Religious imagery ala Madonna? Check. Sassy dance moves courtesy of Miss “Boom Boom Kat” Laurieann Gibson? Check. Dramatic, skin-baring, Haute couture costumes? Take it to the bank and cash that check, because “Judas” has all of the aforementioned and then some. Take the poll and read our case for
How are you feeling today? Each year, GLAAD sets aside a day called Spirit Day for speaking out extra-loud against bullying and to show support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth. This year, that day is today; and so to celebrate, we have got eight of our favorite anti-bully anthems. Each should remind you that you are strong and beautiful, even when maybe you don’t feel it and no matter what they say. Won’t you listen with us?
Things are heating up as finals teams are finally formed on X Factor and The Voice. I can’t wait to see how the skills of our favorite pop-stars-turned-reality-TV-judges Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera fare during the live shows, since we’ve been keeping close tabs on them in a fantasy rivalry of sorts each week. Join in by leaving your shirt indecently unbuttoned Simon Cowell-style while sounding off on who was the better judge below.

Audition rounds are over, but the battle is just beginning for the competitors of X Factor and The Voice. And now we’ll really see how the mentoring skills of those shows respective pop-stars-turned-reality-TV-judges, Britney Spears and The Voice’s Christina Aguilera, hold up.
We’ve been pitting them head-to-head in that age-old Britney vs. Christina rivalry each week, declaring one the ultimate star spotter. So pick a side then rip into both with us in our comments section.
After watching Christina Aguilera‘s new video for “Your Body,” it’s readily apparent that she’s ultra-confident about her curves. And why shouldn’t she be? Her beanpole “Genie In A Bottle” days are a distant memory, and motherhood seems to be doing wonders for her self-confidence and overall attitude.
That confidence, along with every other inch of her body, is on full-display on the cover of her new album, Lotus. None other than @TheRealXtina herself tweeted out her new(d) album cover today, a little over a month before her long-awaited follow-up to Bionic hits shelves. It’s the kind of cover that Georgia O’Keeffe, the undisputed Queen of Vaginal Symbolism, would be totally proud of.
If you’re over TV talent show audition rounds, say “do-re-mi!” That sounded a little off-key, but we won’t judge. What we will critique are the skills of our favorite pop-stars-turned-reality-TV-judges, X Factor‘s Britney Spears and The Voice‘s Christina Aguilera.
We’ve been pitting them head-to-head each week to decide who is the master star spotter on her respective show. As always, we name our winner, but feel free to affect your best Simon Cowell impression and rip into both in our comments section.
Sassiest Comment: “I think Sister C’s annoying. Really not likeable.” While everyone else was gushing over the new generations’ Dixie Chicks, Britney was the lone voice of dissent Read more…
We’ve been keeping tabs on The X Factor and The Voice for no other reason than to have fun with the rivalry that will never get old Britney Spears vs. Christina Aguilera . This time instead of who’s the best pop superstar, we’ve been pitting them head-to-head to see who is the best judge on her respective singing competition show. As always we invite you to speak your mind about who was the better judge.
Christina Aguilera plays a real femme fatale in the new video for “Your Body,” drawing men in one by one and letting them get handsy with her before turning them back out as splatters of paint and piles of confetti. She struts around looking either like she’s just cleared out Claire’s at the local mall, her wrists loaded heavy with big jewels, or like she’s just lost a round of paintball, her hair streaked with bright colors. And we, like the men in the video, couldn’t stop staring because these aren’t just statement pieces, they are warnings like an exotic bird’s warning colors. She’s decked out, each adornment a lure and possibly too a warning.
Should you come across your very own femme fatale with potentially homicidal tendencies, here are 8 fashion signposts that can help you decide whether to stay or to bolt:
The Black Beanie: She’s wearing this at the bar where she takes the guy into the bathroom and makes a big and bright blue paint stain out of him. She looks cute and cozy in this black beanie, sure, but he should have known that black hats are always a sure sign of a bad guy.
