Lee: Britney & Christina’s Sexed Up Image Is ‘Tragic’

The entire interview of Evanescence singer Amy Lee with Steppin’ Out magazine’s Chaunce Hayden has been posted, in which Lee lashed out at the sexed up images of and Christina Aguilera. Asked if she herself had been asked to sex up her own image, Lee said, “Nobody ever tells me what to wear on stage, and I doubt anybody tells them what to wear. They just feel they have to do that. It’s a big tragedy. It doesn’t offend me. It’s just tragic. It’s really sad. It’s not necessary. Because if you’re a talented musician, you should just work just like everybody else does. Just do your music and put it out there and don’t do anything you don’t feel you have to do. You don’t have to do anything. You don’t even have to be here. Go do something else. it’s your dream to be a dancer or a singer, whatever, if you’re a pop star I don’t know how that works. Do what you want to do. Don’t feel like you have to sell sex just to get people to listen to you. I feel like Britney Spears may have to do that in order to get people to listen to her music because I don’t think she’s talented. But Christina Aguilera, on the other hand, is very talented. I think that’s the real tragedy.”

    Doesn’t Amy Lee have anything better to do than talk about Britney and Christina? Probably because now that their first single is done, no one cares about them hello, anyone ever talk about their 2nd single?? anyway, she obviously feels the need to talk about Britney yet, she doesn’t like her hmm. sounds like a lot of people on this site they “hate” Britney but they can’t quit obsessing over her-jealousy, it obvious.

    You think its better to be a HO by personality, than frontin’ like Britney? I agree with Amy. Christina is a slut by nature, not because she is talentless. And that is way worse than Britney actin like a ho to cover up for her lack of talent. Either way, the true talents who are also true to themselves like Amy and Avril are the way to go!

    Yes it’s somewhat tragic. I know that in today’s entertainment, more than ever, the sex and the image is part of the money, the pride, and the attention in part of being celebrity. I don’t think it’s fair to always look at Britney and Christina being the ONLY artists in entertainment that is using sex to sell records, practically every artists today are disguising themselves with sex when they probably don’t even want to. Movies and televisions shows are doing the exact same thing as well, not just artist. But it seems tragic that many of these artist (Britney and Christina included), have to constantly use sex without limitations. Christina has talent. Britney, in my opinion, is really not that talented or creative, but she has charisma and spunk, which makes her appealing, yet…her image is all she’s got, which is sad. Even to this day she’s trying to somewhat portray that image that made her famous, while still portraying an image that she’s yearning to be without breaking too much of that innocent shield she’s trying to keep. Her music isn’t that bad, there are many hits she has made, yet, not even those hits can truly showcase an artist, mainly just an entertainer. But unfortunately as long as most of the population is infatuated by a piece of ass and breast, instead of mind and creativity, REAL music will come secondary or not at all.

    Too bad Amy can’t sell 25 million copies!!! She’s stupid can’t sing she sounds like a dying cat for Pete’s sake!

  6. B0rntoplay says:

    It’s all part of an attempt to draw attention to herself and her band… Its just the way things work…you need attention, so you attack the person on top, and that has been Britney for the longest time. It got Avril some attention, so I guess Amy Lee is trying the same. Pathetic.

  7. breez says:

    Are you kidding me? A Britney spears fan daring to say another singer can’t sing? Um sweety the only one around here that sounds like a dying cat is Ms. Spears.

    Go Amy! Go Amy! “Don’t feel like you have to sell sex just to get people to listen to you. I feel like Britney Spears may have to do that in order to get people to listen to her music because I don’t think she’s talented. But Christina Aguilera, on the other hand, is very talented.” I love that little joke you did.. It was funny!! Amy your such a funny girl! Tina talented? That is like saying she’s not a whore, and we all know she is one LMAO! Yes it is such a tragic that music is infested with these untalented whores :( Amy is so right! It’s not necessary and they should work hard like other pop artists like Michelle Branch.

    She’s wrong about Christina. Everything she does like that she does because she’s just having fun. But she’s dead right about Britney. LOL! classic comment. She does it because she has to. So true.

    Britney ain’t acting you idiot. We all saw her in crossroads. She’s more of a ho than anyone else, naturally, because she’s had to be for her whole life to get anywhere. Christinas a ho in the one place it counts…the bedroom….and nowhere else, like every other human being. apart from you maybe.

    I totally agree with what Amy Lee is saying. Granted Britney and Christina aren’t the only female pop acts that are using sex to sell their product but I feel they’re probably the two that are relying on it too much. It’s disgusting and really sad. People who say they do it for “fun” are kidding themselves. The majority of young females don’t prance around half naked and dress like sluts. Both singers lack taste and self respect. Amy lee on the other hand is amazing. Her talent speaks for itself and she doesn’t have to stand on stage half naked for people to buy her records. If anyone disagrees I ask you this, have you heard Amy lee sing live? She would have to have one of the best voices I have ever heard and those who think Evanescence are 1 hit wonders are should do more research. They are huge all over the world and because of Amy lee’s raw talent the band will stand the test of time…unlike most pop stars. In a few years time age will catch up with Britney and Christina (if they’re lucky to be still around) and what will they do then?

    i know this is old, but i had to chime in! amy lee is a has-been that WISHES she was a hot, sexy blonde like the legendary queen of pop miss Britney spears (who by the way, is still making # 1 hit records and selling out arenas 13 years after she first came out! @ Jillian, don’t kid yourself-nobody gives a flying f*ck about evanescence anymore whereas “untalented” Britney is still at the top of her game) Britney doesn’t have to try to be sexy-she just IS! that’s something that pasty, morticia addams looking Amy lee wouldnt know anything about!
