Christina’s Attempt to Steal The Spotlight Causes Fan Backlash

Contributed by B0rntoplay:

Justin Timberlake had ‘Cry Me a River’ and now Christina has her Blender Interview. It seems that every time an artist wants attention, they go in the same direction. This time however, Christina has not only attacked Britney Spears, but Beyonce Knowles of Destiny’s Child as well. The preview for next month’s Blender magazine reads: “What does it take to become Blender’s woman of the year? For , a fearless approach to record making, a goor pair of assless chaps and a refreshing eagerness to talk trash: About MTV, Beyonce and Britney, Britney, Britney. ‘These people aren’t artists!’ she roars, ‘They’re just…..fake’.”

After years of taking the high road and being respectful, she took it upon herself to lower herself to the levels of artists such as Kelly Osbourne and Pink. While Christina may see her mouthing-off as a good career move, it’s proving not to be. As expected, Britney and Beyonce fans are very upset by the comments. But what wasn’t expected was the reaction of her fans, many of whom have said that they have lost respect for Christina.

Fans from Christina message boards are severely disappointed, saying things like “I honestly hope that it was a misquote and what she said wasn’t really specified towards those two artists! Christina’s comments is only going to make her sound like she is jealous! If Christina did after all really say this, then I must say that I think it was a bad career move.”

The more typical responses have illustrated a loss of respect. For example, a fan by the name What-Christina-Wants said, “If there isn’t reasoning behind her comments then I will have lost a lot of respect for her. honestly.” One shocked fan wrote, “I never thought Christina was the kind who would put fellow artists down unless she was provoked first. So yeah, if the comments turn out to be just that, it is very baffling to me.”

Perhaps Christina is upset with Beyonce’s recent success, as Beyonce’s two single have both been #1 on the billboard charts while Christina’s have struggled. Or perhaps she remains bitter over the fact that her involvement in this years unforgettable VMA performance between herself, Madonna, Britney, and Missy Elliott proved to be, forgettable. Whatever the reasoning, Christina has lost her the respect of many people, including her own fans. Maybe it’s time that Christina learns that trying to build yourself up by putting others down is not a smart move.

If Christina really had the integrity she claims she have, putting others down wouldn’t be necessary. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

    It’s just to get publicity. Ooh, big bad Christina… Who really gives a damn what she says? I sure as hell don’t. I’m a fan of the music, Christina’s and Britney’s a like, not all the bulls##t and crap that they use to more people to complain and argue and buy records. Sometimes pop stars are just pathetic. Oh, and now of course there will be the little teeny “X-Tina” fans who will probably cuss me out now cause I insulted there precious Christina…. That’s so retarded.

    While it does seem suspect, I am not going to condemn Christina for saying anything until I read the whole article and not a moment before. If she did say it, then yes it wasn’t very nice, but I don’t think it will make any real difference on her career or anyone else’s in the long run. I think this is just Blender trying to sell magazines and for whatever reason the media thinks we won’t buy unless it’s sensationalized. Christina and Blender have already gotten what they were looking for. I mean we are talking about it right?

  7. Mimi_Red says:

    I don’t care what she said…though I doubt it’s as bad as they make it out to be simply to sell magazines. Christina is the best ARTIST EVER. No questions asked! Go Christina! You Rule!

    How can an article cause fan backlash when it hasn’t even been released yet? I will have to read it before forming an opinion, but even if she did make negative comments about Britney and Beyonce, I don’t really care, she is still an amazing artist and I think it is dumb that she would stoop to trash talking, I am still a fan of hers though. besides, Britney and Beyonce have both made digs at Christina before. Britney was quoted a week or so ago saying that Christina and Beyonce both dress more revealing and should be criticized more than her, and Beyonce made some negative comments about both Britney and Christina after the Madonna MTV awards thing. I doubt Christina will lose fans over this, if anything she will probably gain some because Britney haters will love it

    Christina can say whatever she wants to, I will always have respect for the girl. She’s awesome. So what if she said those girls are fake. THEY ARE!!! And each of them have said something about Christina, I mean why does Beyonce get so much respect? She’s the black Britney, she can’t sing and when she sings live, she lip-syncs, there is really no difference between the two girls but their race. I really doubt that Christina has lost her fan base because of what she said, she probably gained a larger fanbase, b0rntoplay is probably a Britney fan that is bitter and wishes that Britney said this about Christina.

    So if you speak your mind and don’t censor yourself, that makes you a bitch? I guess we should all tape our mouths shut now. Stop trying to censor others and trying to turn society into a bunch of mindless puppet clones. Read Fahrenheit 451 about the effects of censorship. Freedom of expression is freedom to offend.
