Christina Aguilera is annoying the other judges on The Voice by acting the diva

Here’s a story in the NY Post that sounds very likely to be true, given all we’ve heard from Christina Aguilera to date. Apparently Aguilera is behaving like a drunken diva on the set of The Voice, and is getting into bickering fights with Adam Levine on camera while refusing to talk to any of her fellow judges when the cameras aren’t on. What’s more is that she rolls with a huge entourage, gets paid about triple an episode more than the other judges, and is late constantly. Again, this is typical behavior from XTina the narcissist who is never personally responsible for anything she does, has an excuse for everything, and blames her every mistake on other people paying attention to her. She’s going to lift herself up from that background of domestic abuse she brings up in every single interview and the horrible nasty press that drags her down. We just need to let her be Christina and join all the other sycophants and enablers that surround her like an overpaid bubble of yes men. Why can’t we just understand that no one ever says “no” to her?

Tensions are bubbling backstage on NBC’s hit “The Voice” between Christina Aguilera and rival judge Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.

Sources tell Page Six fellow judges Levine and Blake Shelton have formed an alliance against Aguilera, whose much bigger paycheck, attention-stealing diva stunts and doting makeup team have rubbed the guys the wrong way.

Low-key Levine can’t grasp why Aguilera, who seems to get on a little better with Cee Lo Green, is being paid $225,000 per episode, in comparison to their $75,000 rate, and has a huge entourage, including two hair and makeup people, a producer and an assistant.

“They are all so annoyed by her,” a source told us. “Every time she walks away with her entourage, they talk about her behind her back. She holds people up and never apologizes.”

While Aguilera is the most vocal on the show, sources say she won’t speak to the other judges during commercial breaks.

“When the cameras are rolling, she literally won’t shut up,” an insider told us. “It is all about her.”

The production team is also playing into the rift — Aguilera’s supporters wear “Team Christina” T-shirts on the Studio City set.

Despite the differences, another source said the judges appeared to be getting along after the show Tuesday night at a bash thrown by Shelton and Miranda Lambert, at which Aguilera was still wearing her “Team Christina” shirt.

We hear that despite the disagreements, Aguilera and Levine are working together and recently recorded a track that will be released Tuesday.

[From The NY Post]

As many of you mentioned in our last story on XTina’s Voice gig, she’s revealing what a petty person she is with every episode basically. I’ve only seen a few episodes of The Voice, and she’s come across as superficial and self centered, and she often picks fights with Adam. She isn’t terrible, though, probably because no one is calling her on her sh*t. She’s thinks the star, but right now she’s just a (very talented) singer whose last CD tanked, whose tour got canceled, and who is hanging on to her new gig on a competition reality show by the skin of her teeth. Do you think she’s going to get hired for more jobs, or even hold on to this one, if that’s the way she treats her coworkers?

    This woman is ridiculous! She looks like a blow-up doll — not the good kind but that one really fake, with a round mouth and plastic hair only around its face.


  2. vanessa says:

    I’ve watched every episode and seems to me it’s all in fun. I don’t think there’s anything to this story. I’m sure there’s some truth to her acting as a drunk diva, but I think for the most part she seems to get along with the boys. Don’t know why she wouldn’t, she loves male attention.

  3. the original bellaluna says:

    Ms Aguilera? I’ll be right back with your plate of what Ms Alley is having. (you have to read my comment on that thread to get it) 😉

    How vain does one have to be to wear their own “Team (insert name here)” t-shirts? And does she honestly believe the slop that pours out her mouth? Oh, please, let her get “uninvited” to return to the show. If the show even has a 2nd season, that is.

    (I think she should be grateful she even has a job! I’m sure there are a number of other almost has-beens who would love the job.) *side-eye to J-Ho*

  4. EarthWindFire82 says:

    She’s probably nice to Cee-Lo because she needs a hit.

    But for some odd reason, I believe that she’s being a rambunctious trainwreck. All that talent, but her attitude is going to murder her career.

  5. fannomore says:

    I guess it’s hard being Xtina, poor baby, step aside make room for her hair

  6. normades says:

    She is so fug and has always been fug. That’s why she cakes on all that make-up.

  7. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I think they should replace her with Jessica Simpson. If only for the Levine/Simpson dynamic. I’d love to see how they interact post romantic split!

  8. irishserra says:

    Christina Aguilera is annoying ME By acting the diva. I do watch the show (I’m addicted – help!) and I’ve seen the way she picks at Adam. You can see there is some tension between them, although he seems to handle it well.

    I do think she is talented, and when she’s not bloated and painted, quite beautiful. I just wish she would get it together! Even when she speaks, she sounds like a bit of a moron. She says the dumbest things and she does act like the show in its entirety is about her.

    With regard to paychecks, hey – if the guys agreed to do the show for the sums of money they are getting, then that’s their fault and they need to live with it. Christina probably negotiated more at the outset. Quit worrying about what other people are making.

    Oh, and Adam is hot!! Wooh!

  9. brin says:

    This doesn’t even seem like news, I just figured she would be a diva and not get along with the other judges.

  10. KimnotKardashian says:

    None of what is being reported here warrants all this hate that’s being spewed, in my opinion. Four people is a “huge entourage”? She doesn’t get along with Adam Levine? Uh, sorry, but last time I checked, that dude seemed like a giant douche. Not getting along with him earns her major points in my book. As for the “Team Christina” shirts – that just seems so harmless to me that it being used as evidence of her supposed horrible, awful, nasty skankiness is hilarious.

    The woman earns triple the paycheque because she brings triple the recognition, good or bad. If she wasn’t getting paid more than those other suckers, she’d be a pretty terrible businessperson.

  11. Amanda says:

    I like her on The Voice. She says crazy things, is fun, and is flirtatious. No Diva behavior comes through onto the show, but I don’t have a hard time believing that behind the scenes she is a Diva. Actually, I think the judges all get on great and have a lot of chemistry between them. I love the show!

  12. Heatheradair says:

    Sooooo – I read a “behind-the-scenes” article written by someone TV Guide planted on set, and APPARENTLY, most of the cattiness/pettiness/fights-with-Adam and all of her other “drunken antics” are AT THE EXPRESS ENCOURAGEMENT OF THE PRODUCERS. Every time she says something stupid (“I just want you to take off your pants!” for instance) she gets a big THUMBS UP from Mark Burnett. SO, that just encourages more of it.

    Do I think she’s a drunk diva who’s certainly never made it to emotionally grown-up? YES.

    But is the behavior encouraged for the sake of gossip articles, publicity, and water-cooler-chatter?


    (oh – here’s part of what I read:

  13. Lantana says:

    I think she’s OK on the Voice. Not great, but I guess I can see the diva in her. I see it as an inferiority complex, which only leads to looking pathetic. I watch the Voice now for Blake Shelton. He was so one-dimensional (in my mind) before I saw him on this show. I just love him, in an “awww I wish my daughter would bring him home,” sort of way. I think he has some more TV time ahead if he wants to go that route.////glad I caught this in time to edit. I should add that I don’t want my daughter bringing home a married man (in case you’re reading this Chelsey)…I meant if he were a single man lol

  14. k says:

    Didn’t Bruno Mars write Cee-Lo’s hit? She should cozy up to Mars, not Green.

  15. Hakura says:

    As a teenager during her ‘Genie In A Bottle‘ through ‘Dirrty‘ -days… Seeing what a mess she’s become always really saddens me. She’s always been one of my faves, but has (in recent years) become another ‘talented-but-unfortunate’ case, not unlike Leann Rimes.

    Who knows if she’ll ever get it together… If she did, she’d have a lot of past-fans to support her. (Just like with Britney’s comeback, except with actual singing.)

    @Eve“This woman is ridiculous! She looks like a blow-up doll — not the good kind but that one really fake, with a round mouth and plastic hair only around its face.”
    Oh God, that horrifyingly familiar doll face….

    @MorticiansDoItDeader“I think they should replace her with Jessica Simpson. If only for the Levine/Simpson dynamic. I’d love to see how they interact post romantic split!”
    How did I forget they had dated? I mean, completely slipped my mind. Course it’s been so damned long since she’s ‘dated’ anyone (that wasn’t a fiance’).

  16. Tiffany says:

    She is more a diva than you guys would ever guess. This is a woman who shows up to her rehearsals hours late, and when seeing one of her new musicians, asks, “What is THAT?” Will not talk to her band, makes her entourage relay her words to the band. Nice working relationship, huh? Not a nice girl, from personal experience.

  17. notsoanonymous says:

    I’m co-signing everything that @Heatheradair said – there was another article that specifically said the ‘tension’ or otherwise between judges was producers telling them (mostly her) to do so.

    I love the concept of the show and it’s been fun to watch compared to other singing competitions. The ratings have been high so I’d guess there would be a second season. Wonder if they plan to switch all all or only a few judges though. Blake is still my favorite for his one liners!

  18. Penguen says:

    @ Tiffany

    I also seem to recall a rumor that she wouldn’t even speak to a cocktail waitress who was trying to take her order once.

    She made her friend or assistant basically say, “Ms. Aguilera will have…” When the server asked a question about Christina’s order, the assistant repeated it back to her, and she whispered her response back to the assistant, who repeated it to the server. Can you imagine playing telephone to get someone’s drink order?


    Anyway. I tend to get a douchey vibe from Levine, but if it came down to him or Christina, he’d have my vote. And to echo what MorticiansDoItDeader said, I think bringing Jessica Simpson in would be brilliant! At least I don’t tend to see a total diva vibe with her. She seems like a fairly nice, not too bright girl.

  19. SEF says:

    Xtina was good at the beginning of the series, but has def. gotten more annoying of late. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the producers encouraged it.

  20. arock says:

    she looks like ms piggy.

  21. Amanda G says:

    She seems to be pretty competitive when it comes to this show. She probably thinks if someone from her team wins then her career will be back on track. In other words, she’s desperate. I find her to be obnoxious on the show. And I am actually a fan of hers.

  22. crazycatlady says:

    I am no fan of Xtina (especially with those fried out extensions), but in the show’s defense…

    The show is about the celebs’ competing TEAMS – hence the t-shirt.

    This story makes it sound like she had a shirt made for herself.

    Again, I still think she’s fried out and the rumors are true.

  23. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    @penguen, “She seems like a fairly nice, not too bright girl.”

    my thoughts exactly! These traits make her both likeable and unintentionally funny.

    @Hakura, “How did I forget they had dated? I mean, completely slipped my mind. Course it’s been so damned long since she’s ‘dated’ anyone (that wasn’t a fiance’).”

    it struck me as an odd pairing which is why I remembered it. I also recall “sources” said she was head over heals and that it didn’t end well; which is why I think levine/Simpson would make for good tv!

  24. Kim says:

    Egomaniac tool meets another egomaniac tool and suprise they dont get along!

  25. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Who deserves this (and I mean that in every way possible)? Even Kathleen Battle, whose singing style included a little more than just screaming out melismas and stripping in a busted weave and could actually sell tickets got fired when her horrible batshit behaviour (which Ms. Aguilera’s latest antics will soon be mirroring at this rate) was too much for The Met to take. The woman sang so beautifully, the Devil sold his soul to her, and while she was at the peak of her powers, all anyone talked out was the feud between her and Volpe.

    The lesson: Just don’t treat people like garbage! Why is that so bloody hard to understand? Everyone’s expendable, all can be forgotten.

  26. dj says:

    I am addicted to the Voice too! Christina is annoying ME by constantly talking over the judges and taking up waaay too much time when it is her actual turn. Blake Shelton has truly impressed me with his musical knowledge, sense of humor and gorgeousness. I am not even a country fan. I was a Christina fan…status in flux on that one.

  27. Hakura says:

    @Penguen“Can you imagine playing telephone to get someone’s drink order?”

    What a bitch… I mean, that sends the message that even though you’re there doing your job, to serve her… You simply don’t warrant any respect of acknowledgment. She decides that you are ‘unworthy’ of hearing her glorious voice (speaking or otherwise). I’m sure she’s one those customers you’d want to spill something on, or spike their food with something. (Wasabi sauce is an effective one.)

    @MorticiansDoItDeader“it struck me as an odd pairing which is why I remembered it. I also recall “sources” said she was head over heals and that it didn’t end well; which is why I think levine/Simpson would make for good tv!”

    Oooo, juicy info! They really do seem like an odd pair… He has a lot of attitude, sort of like the ‘bad boy’ type. (which I’m sure papa Joe probably wasn’t thrilled about). I was curious & checked to see if Adam was Jewish. Half of his family is, half isn’t… So I don’t know what that means in regards to his own beliefs. (I know sometimes it can be a religious problem that ends a relationship.

  28. Kiska says:

    Go Xenia! I love that girl’s voice and sweet innocence.

    As for Xtina. She does suck up a lot of air time. She constantly talks over the other judges and seems a bit fake.

    I really like the other 3 judges. The 3 guys seem to really like and respect each other unlike Ms. Diva.

  29. Calli Pygian says:

    Hideous cow.

  30. Tony tideman says:

    I use to be a christims aguilera fan but as of right now I cannot stand her & ridiculous disses. The disses are getting pretty stupid xtina has been annoying. I think xtina aguileria should not come back for season two.

  31. I hate here 🙂 NO! im joking. love few of her songs.


  32. Skinnybetch says:

    Of course she’s a diva. The woman’s voice is epic. Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston & Barbra Streisand are all bitches to. Huge voice = huge ego in show business. The only one I don’t understand is jlo with her sub par acting and singing skills!

  33. BritneySpears says:

    Christina is soo overrated its ridiculous does she have a great voice? yes! but thats it. Is she pretty? for a regular girl yes! she is not successful enough or have enough fans to be that kinda person. Her career she started out as #2 to Britney Spears and believe she hated/hates britney for that. Shes still 2nd to britney. She tries too hard. She cant dance and shes ripped off every singer such as Britney, Pink, Avril Lavigne, Beyonce, Madonna and now Gaga.

  34. JC says:

    Christina is not aging well at all.
