Before we say anything we will say that Christina Aguilera is one of the few pop stars who, though we never really enjoyed her music, did have a natural talent for singing and overall, we definitely hate her least. Still as long time oppose of the child slavery machine that is Disney we were always waiting for her to slip up because she was the example – the one and only, sole example, that people would use to defend the Disney corporation when questions were raised about the after effects on it’s child stars. The argument always seemed to be that Christina Aguilera is all right, and she was a Disney kid on the Mickey Mouse Club, therefore they could wash their hands of how seriously fucked up some of their current and former employees have gotten.
The newest story is that her and her new man, some back up dancer or grip or something from the movie Burlesque (whatever, we both know it’s not important) were making sexy times in the bathroom at a family gathering, because that’s the exact type of thing you do when you are sober, level headed and your life is completely together. Definitely not the behaviour of somebody who is spiralling completely out of control.
Maybe we are wrong, maybe all this is her ex husband leaking stuff to the press to make her look bad. Maybe it’s the press making it up because they know we all love a good train wreck. Or maybe she is a woman in her late 20’s who has been working since she was probably too young to really be doing so, spent the better part of her life being sheltered and told how to act, what to say, what to wear, got married and had a kid way too young because she wanted so bad to have some sort of stable normalcy in her life that wasn’t entirely consumed by the entertainment industry and her ‘work’, and is only now breaking out of that shell and fucking up and doing the same shit and making the same mistakes I made when I was 16. I mean, I never had sex in a bathroom at a family gathering, but still.
I don’t know her or anything but I am inclined to think it’s the latter. I hope she sorts this out.
