Is Xtina Feuding With Her Record Label?

| Filed under: Christina AguileraMusic Minute


That's what some music insiders are saying.

Since Christina Aguilera's album, Bionic, flopped BIG TIME, sources are saying that her record label RCA is in "rescue mode."

And they SHOULD be!

Bionic barely sold 200,000 copies in its first five weeks of release and even made UK history for being the lowest-selling album to make it to the number one spot in eight years. She also had to cancel her summer tour.

Insiders say that her label "has done its part, but she's headstrong. There have been candid conversations between her and the label about connectivity, but it doesn't seem that she's been open to that dialogue."

A rep for RCA has denied that there's tension adding that FailTina "is a pillar of the RCA Music Group and is an undeniable talent with one of the greatest voices of our time. She continues to push herself as an artist, and we are behind her efforts 100 percent."

Her manager, Irving Azoff, added, "I am the one who deals with the label, and this couldn't be further from the truth."

We're not buying it! RCA is most likely doing damage control and wants Xtina to shape up!

    She's a loser.

  2. 2

    The shame is that Christina has such a beautiful voice, yet her songs are terrible! They're so…trite, you know? If she made better songs, her voice would be put into better use. She needs better songwriters!

  3. 3

    she should have taken some holiday from the music-business. a creative break, to study the dance- and underground-remix-scene ~

  4. 4

    Not First!!

    "In the album's second week of release in the UK, on June 20, Bionic made UK chart history by registering the largest drop in chart postions for a number one album by falling 28 places to number 29."

    ouch!…huge fail :(

  5. 5

    Christina, needs to stop being suck an effin diva, and get her ass out there and work it! Never have I seen anyone so lazy as to release a song to radio (NMT) and do nothing for 6 weeks. She deserves to flop!

  6. 6

    Stop talking sh*t.

  7. 7

    Re: WTFungus – Woah…ouch indeed :/

  8. 8

    i think the fact that it was the uk's lowest-selling album to make it to #1 should tell you something about the music industry right now. i didn't know having a #1 album was a bad thing, regardless of how much it actually sold

  9. 9

    who cares about sales numbers.

    Doesn't make Bionic any less epic. The album is a masterpiece man.

    she should go back to singing and not all these electro shitt.
    she got a voice, she should use it, not hide it!
    she has some good song on the album, but all that glam shitt is not her.
    she trying to be something shes not…

  11. 11

    Gagulara should go into Ga Ga impersonation! Wait she already has!

  12. ritaj says – reply to this


    Christina doesn't seem to crave attention like some people do. I think she's just happy being a wife and mother who makes music in her spare time. Her voice is miles above everyone else's and her ballads are always beautiful. When it comes to the faster/more upbeat music, I hope that she goes back to her Dirty/Back to Basics ways. Some of the fast songs she has on Bionic are sort of ridiculous and the lyrics are Gaga-ish - meaning, they don't make any sense.

  13. 13

    It's not like she failed. She did sell records, she is a major star. She just needs to find who she is. I mean American Idol whatever, but those judges are right. You have to find who you are and be that. Christina seems to go from one extreme to the next and she went the Lady Gaga path it's like no one wanted that. We just want her to sing her great woman power songs, and show her growth as a mom, wife etc. Instead she appears to be a biter and it turned everyone off.

  14. 14

    Leave her alone, fat ass!

  15. 15

    Good Lord! Does she think she looks good with all that make-up? It probably takes an hour to remove it every night. And who the hell listens to her music anymore?

  16. 16

    She is a bitch in real life, so she deserves a FLOP. This is a wake up call for her.

  17. 17

    I dont think so.

  18. 18

    I hope Christina doesn't listen to all the haters because I love her and her music and I hope she's gonna keep singing for the next 60 years!

  19. 19

    I like her, but hate the new album's content. She's done some sexual, woman power style music before and it was good. There was nothing wrong with the music, but the lyrics and message were too sexual to reach a broader audience and even repulsive to some of us who think we're pretty open-minded.

  20. 20

    While I like BIONIC, I wonder where her collaboration with Goldfrapp ended up…

    I think that Christina was making the album she wanted to, and then RCA got involved and had her work with more "mainstream" producers like Tricky Stewart and Polow da Don. If she had stuck to her own vision and worked with the people she wanted to, BIONIC would have been more cohesive.

  21. 21

    Re: Martin Döringer
    She "needs to study the dance- and underground-remix-scene."
    The Marilyn Monroe look isn't a friend to Xtina anymore either.

  22. 22

    Funny how record companies blame the artist when they know full well what is being released. Christina seems to have an image crisis…..she's all over the place with her music and her look. Not terrible to experiment, but probably won't make for big sales. Right now she is too close to GaGa and just looks like she's copying.

  23. 23

    I used to think she was genuine but there are so many people in the music industry who don't like her. She has a bad attitude and she needs to come down to earth and realize that she is not the prettiest singer, she is not the best singer out there, and she is not popular anymore.

  24. 24

    she has a great voice but ironically a voice isn't enough to be a singer these days

  25. 25

    Of course you wouldn't 'buy it' you hate Christina. And you know what perez that's 200,000 more records then any of the shit you have on your 'record label'

  26. 26

    The ONLY ONLY ONLY ONLY reason you are HATING HATING HATING HATING HATING on Xtina so hard, Perez, is because she talked shit on Lady Gaga. You use to post nice things about her… I CAN'T WAIT until Lady Gaga WISES UP and has NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. 27

    Wtf is with her eyebrows?

  28. 28

    Was listening to Raul Malo (Mavericks) this afternoon and always enjoy putting his albums on. His voice is beautiful.
    You have a beautiful voice. Sing stuff people want to hear.
    Make an album that people can think about putting your music on while cooking dinner or getting ready to go out for the evening: dance club or torch songs that are romantic. Raul sings a lot of classics.

  29. 29

    I know Xtina's new album isn't doing so well at the moment, but that's because she has only released one single! "Not Myself Tonight" was good, but pretty generic. Any artist out there presently could've released that song… Her next single, "You Lost Me", will definitely redeem her! The video will be released next week on Christinaaguilera.com and, having already seen stills from the video and heard the song, I can confidentally say that Xtina is back and better than ever! Don't believe me? Just listen to the song. You'll know what I'm talking about. She will be reminding the world of not only how amazingly she can sing, but also how raw and emotional her music is! Love you, Xtina!

    If her record label were so concerned about the album's performance in the UK surely they should have promoted it! They were the ones who left it!
    Regardless of sales it went to #1 in the UK and European charts and #3 on the hot 100. Still more successful than you're "artists" perez.
    Her tour was cancelled due to commitments to her film - nothing to do with her album or sales!
    Btw stop with the childish names - makes you look even more pathetic than normal.

  32. 32

    Karma never fails. I don't care if she has a good voice or not. Her bitchiness and mean spirited ways have come back to haunt her. She needs to regroup and come back later. No one likes her right now because they know what a bitch she is no matter how hard she tries to fake it on tv interviews. I hope her movie BOMBS big time!

  33. 33

    Guess it's time for her to realize that Karma is a bigger bitch than she ever will be…

  34. 34

    I'm surprised you haven't mentioned how Kelis has FLOPPED so hard, but gee, I guess you like her and the album, so why not post about it? This site is just a biased piece of shit. Xtina's album is far beyond what her numbers say, in my opinion.

  35. 35

    How is this Xtina's fault? If I were her, I'd be very unhappy too. RCA hasn't been doing well across the board, not just with Xtina but with MANY of their other artists whose CD sales haven't been impressive lately. I really think a lot of it has to do with the obvious reasons (economy and easy access to music files on the internet) but at the same time, RCA hasn't been promoting their artists very well in comparison to other labels. It's been weeks since NMT was released, and they were completely up in the air about the next single until very recently. It really seems like RCA has been generally disorganized for a while.

    BTW, Re: luvstotango – , that's an older pic of her. She's changed her look for the new single 'You Lost Me', which Mario very quickly decided to bitch about as well. He likes using older, unflattering pics of those he slams whether it's relevant or not.

  36. 36

    If she would stop copying other artists and just use her beautiful voice people would respect her more. Right now she is just a drag-queen looking whore with fake, white hair and a huge gap between her bow-legs.

  37. 37

    She is such a HAS-BEEN! It's not like she was ever in the same league as, say, Britney, Mariah, Whitney or Janet. Contrary to what SHE would have you believe she does not have those kind of hit singles or record sales. Bitch needs to get over self!! Oh, and she can slap all the make-up on she wants and dye her hair white she is STILL NOT an attractive woman at the end of the day.

  38. 38

    Her overly-promoted hypersexuality on half of the CD's tracks overshadow her great voice. And there's too much hate coming Christina herself on songs like "I Hate Boys" and "Vanity," where she hates everyone else but herself. She's a hater and it's about time she owns it and learns to stop being such a unlikable bitch.

    Ugh, Christina gurl what are you doing :/

  40. 40

    Bionic is a good album, and the girl can sing…but a bat attitude will never help. Unless you're Madonna, I suppose.

  41. 41

    Yes, the ONLY reason Perez hates on Christina is because TWO YEARS ago she said she hadn't heard of Lady GaGa. Neither did I. He's been on her back ever since. Personally I wish Christina was still a cute little Mouseketeer. I hate when blatant sexuality gets the best of people.

  42. 42

    Why do you insist on calling her Floptina? Aside from Lady Gaga, the rest of the music acts you push on this site are almost definately flops. Adam Lambert has gone Gold, albeit, but that's overall sales, whilst Aguilera sold 200k in five weeks. I'm sure the number will go up as the months go by. I think it's pretty sad that you'd consider Aguilera a flop when Sliimy and whatever trash you are pushing is hardly setting the charts alight.

    why does everyone say she doesnt sound like herself? SHE CHANGES WITH EVERY ALBUM & HAS SINCE 1999. People sound like the people they work with & collab with on their album, that's the purpose of choosing those specific people. She wanted to combine worlds with the people she worked with. If you like Justin Timberlake do you say he's copying everyone he works with's style? (like Pharrell) He is doing their style but people eat it up. Christina's intentions were to sound like she does on Bionic that's why she personally called & asked the artists she did to work with her. She's not feuding with RCA, if anything RCA hasn't done enough promoting Bionic & the tour was #2 on the best selling hottest tours of the Summer before it was cancelled due to her scheduling conflicts & time restraints b/c of her movie coming out & her personal decision that there wouldn't be enough time to create the level of show she'd want to perform plus she's a new mom.

    You know what's fun? going on ASCAP & seeing how many of Christina's songs she has songwriting credits on & as PRIMARY writer (hint: it's almost all of them aside from her 1st debut, covers, & Linda Perry) & then seeing how many songs other artists write for themselves that you prolly listen to & love now…ALMOST NONE! Appreciate talent people, jeeeesus. Ashlee Simpson's video for "Outta My Head" came out in 2007 & it's funny to see all the looks & fashion Lady Gaga stole from that video before she even came out!!

  45. 45

    All this blatant ignorance. Aren't you people who spread the hatred and bitterness tired from all your exercises in stupidity? Originality and experimentation are the norm for artists. Christina Aguilera can not sing "Genie In A Bottle" forever. She is growing up. And for her to make an album about her love for a certain genre of music should be applauded. So what if she didn't meet sales expectations? No artist these days are doing what they were doing ten years ago. Madonna isn't. Britney isn't. It doesn't make their music any less viable. Christina can sing and has the right to follow the muses that inspire her instead of listening to the haters who kill dreams. Mary J Blige said it best when she said, "watch out for the dreamkillers, they are the only ones who will stop you from doing what you know is right from within." Get off your high horses and thank whomever you believe in that some artists won't sell their souls to make a high number on the charts. Perez stands for everything that is wrong about music. And hates all that is right about it.

  46. 46

    Speaking of fail - how many units has Slimy moved?

  47. 47

    Christina Aguilera's new album is very creative and she definitely stepped "out of the box". Unfortunately, our society tends to like cookie cutter types…..therefore, of course her album flopped. People want "fast food" with their music- they want to like it the first time they hear it- they want to hear it once and know how it goes…..with this new album, she took a lot of risks and I really respect her for that. All a record company is after is money….well, in the REAL world, just because something or someone is not popular with the "masses", doesn't mean it is not of quality and substance. As a matter of fact- it is usually the contrary.

    Re: Karolein – what are you talking about? There was just as much if not more "sexual/explicit" lyrics on Back to Basics. She's never been ashamed to express her sexual side & it's been that way with every album…

  49. Laury says – reply to this


    Unless she stops acting like a diva who knows better than everyone else (which she clearly doesn't, since her album is such a flop), she won't get her career back to where it once was. I hate Xtina, but I admit that she's talented, and it's a real shame that she's so stubborn that she won't listen to the experts around her. Her problem is that she's constantly trying to be someone else, she's acting like a cocky bitch with huge self confidence when she's clearly a very insecure person. If she would just let people see her more vulnerable side, like she did with Beautiful, which, in my opinion, is one of her best songs ever, then she'd start making good music that reflects her real personality instead of the "Look at me, ain't I the sexiest bitch you've ever seen?" crap on Bionic.

  50. 50

    Karma is a bitch. She's a stuck up, big mouth bitch that always has something to say about other female artists. She just needs to go back and play mommy to her funny looking son and play wifey to her funny looking husband. Can't stand this snob.

  51. 51

    The problem with Christina's Bionic is, if you're going to hype something, as she did for months (even years) with this album, make it worth the hype. Unfortunately, Bionic wasn't. Not that it was a bad album, but for a "futuristic" album, it didn't sound unlike anything we've heard before. There was also too much going on on the record. You had classic Chrisina ballads dumped in the middle of a bunch of different sounding dance songs. The album should have been more cohesive (which doesn't mean all the songs have to sound alike). Too many producers/writers in the mix ruins that. And even though some of the songs really showed a different side of her (check out Monday Morning on the deluxe version), none of them really showed us who she was, and the songs really didn't strike a chord with me, and I can't say I'll remember them 5-10 years from now. A lot of artists are now focusing on making shorter albums (10-11 songs), which was the norm 25 and more years ago. Sometimes shorter is sweeter.

    i dont think the album is bad..the royality of floptina is what pisses me off…..the album is not so bad….especially i am,you lost me,all i need,are very good…she neded to satisfy her ego needs,and proove that britney is not enough to own the pop throne…..apart from voice she has NOTHIN!!!britney has the looks,the personality,the performances,the sales,the press,the trend-setting,the innovation…..she has just a voice…and i know that her voice was magnificent,but with all the bitch attitude,she makes it sound really annoying……its pathetic…

    Re: @v@
    Yeah, or Desmond Child

  55. 55

    can't someone fail just once?! i mean geezus! so this album didn't do well, so what! if she is an fng pillar of RCA then just move on folks and get another album underway in a few months. get over it. not every album can be a winner.

  56. 56

    I hope things get better for her. Such a beautiful voice!

  57. 57

    album sales mean nothing anymore. people dont have the spare cash for cds anymore. and you make it sound like shes the only artist to have a bad album. almost everyone whos been out over 2 years has one bad album behind them. give it time and gaga will too.
    you really need to move on from this perez…its getting old.
    Re: pghmusiclover – agreed.

  58. IVIV says – reply to this


    Re: BiSi – all those things you listed britney "having" are what her label & management wanted her to have, & WANTED you to see. Everyone knows she's the ultimate industry robot, which is what eventually drove her crazy because she couldn't mix it with personal life, & the lack of "real" life she has. She never had the creative desire or personal respect to break free from the forced image which is why she snapped. (Xtina did, & came out with Stripped in 2002). Whether britney is your cup of tea or not, she is a great entertainer yes & she did used to be super sexy but in a discussion of talents it's inaccurate to use britney as a comparison. She's just the ultimate marketable object, not exactly an "artist" or vocal talent, but a good entertainer.

  59. 59

    You know alot of the best have had some flops madonna did three times, michael twice, and kylie once. so who cares if one album of hers didn't sell 10million copys its her first bad album. its ok she will come back batter than ever. but i always thougt she needed a better manager/ record label and put out albums more than 1 every other 3 years. i hope some day she will do that and work with some better people in the urban /rnb/ soul world that know how to work with her voice. people like alica keys or jill scott for example cause she has that kind of voice. shes better than all this pop shit she makes. she should not have to compete with britney or gaga shes way better than them

  60. 60

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – totally agree

  61. 61

    great voice but a terrible artist. has she tried broadway? they need some big singers there and they're taking all of the hollywood hasbeens lately.

  62. Kakia says – reply to this


    She really can outsing just about anyone in the pop music scene, especially the famed Gaga, who I do like, too. The problem is these crappy songs. Can't anyone besides Linda Perry write a decent song for her? Or is it that she has no clue who she wants to be as an artist, seeing as how she's been all over the map? I don't know what's going on in her head but all I know is the Moulin Rouge soundtrack would not be nearly as good without her. Sorry, Pink.

  63. 63

    I think christina is great for not conforming to her managers "idea" for her, even if her popularity declines. She does what she wants and you have to give someone credit for not being a puppet . LOVE U CHRISTINA!!!

  64. 64

    ummm no disrespect to Christina but…she looks like a straight up CLOWN in this picture! smh who THE FUCK does her make up her 2 year old max???

  65. 65

    Her flopping is still making headlines so they should use the attention she's still getting to make her release a #1 song and then forget about Bionic and release a new album as soon as possible so everyone will forget this

  66. 66

    Lets Be Real….The only artist who push units are Eminem, Lil Wayne, Beyonce and Jay-Z. The music scene is more urban and less pop. The most critically acclaimed albums don't sell superstar numbers. Christina isn't going anywhere. Lady Gaga is a shock artist..It won't last. True artist don't need gimmicks and costumes. Lets see Gaga perform without all the costumes, background dances and special effects Who is She without the Gimmicks and Costumes.? NOBODY!!! Christina can sing on a stage with no background dances and special effects and still get everyone attention. GAGA NOT!!!

    total bullshit….this is not true…..the new songs may be not as huge as her previous anthems,but the album is great and she is a diva,true singer…..
    she doesn't care about the album sales,cause she has already sold more than 30 million albums…..like Mariah Carey,Christina Aguilera is an all time relevant singer-due to her vocal……the one who cares about the album sales is Lady Gagadonna,cause she will be forgotten in a couple of years like other ugly freek bitches

    TRAVESTINA and her album "LESBIONIC" failed to no.99 in uk this week.

  71. 71

    LOL at people who say she's a terrible artist. Christina is one of the BEST and REALEST artists we have out there. She REFUSES to be a media puppet and has the TALENT to be versatile. She has co-written over 40 songs in her career about learning to accept yourself, low self esteem, death, physical spousal/child abuse endured by her father, moving on from negativity, fighting back, female empowerment, soaring for your dreams, etc.
    You people are BUGGING if you say that a girl who not only can sing her ASS OFF but writes her own music with DEPTH AND MEANING is a "terrible" artist.
    Christina diversified herself a LONG time ago with her album Stripped as a TRUE artist and not just a corporate puppet. Her music is relateable.
    Not only that, ENOUGH WITH THE GAGA SHIT. IN 2006 Christina said she was doing a futuristic album. Stripped was her coming undone, Back to Basics focused on the past and Bionic focuses on the future. Not a hard concept. And please, Christina was doing this whole thing while Gaga was still 13 years old.
    Go to the website called "Proof That Christina Did Not Copy Gaga".
    Who looks like who again? Hmmm.

  72. 72

    Re: imprettierthanyou – Yes, she's a snob because she is REAL and tells it like it is instead of being a corporate puppet like all the other girls….and funny how you're mad at her for having an OBJECTIVE opinion not even a BAD opinion while you're on Perez Hilton talking shit lol.
    Hypocrite? I think so.

  76. 76

    WELL…lets just say the truth… THIS WOMAN IS A LEGEND ALREADY… stripped and back to basics albums were both amazing….. but bionic…has like 2 good songs.. 3 at most…..YOU LOST ME is incredible.. and epic….. of course some of you might like entirely and thats great…. maybe thats just for you…. but commercially…FLOPS…. lets just forget the fact the BITCH FAME that xtina holds….. and i do think she loves it…well… i hope she can fix it… cuz i admire this woman….she is bold.. and not afraid to try….. i dont care if she is cocky or humble…. i want her to entertain my ears and eyes….. and shes been doin it pretty well by far…..we have this stupid thing… we want to relate …. thats not gonna happen…..our idols are not flawless….we should look for real idols.. there's always one in our families….. lets praise them… lets not overrate the unknown…..when did we become shallow?

  77. 77

    To be honest, I Used To listen to christina aguilera but now i dont anymore because as much as she trys to change herself with every record i realize that in the end she will run out of ideas and copy other artists, some say it is inspiration but come on, is it really? and this whole sexuality thing she does in the bionic album has already been done in the stripped album. which just goes to show how she actually goes around in circles with her ideas. The only unique idea she sings about is her son. ive grown bored of Xtina aka baby jane. and unfortunely the album is a flop and that is something all artists have to accept.

  78. @v@ says – reply to this


    She needs direction, and an industry pro to help her simplify, break out in a new genre (and challenge), and to stop the oversinging. Lange is her guy, if she could get him. Think Shania, Bryan Adams, Def Leppard, many others.

  79. 79

    Every artist has that one album that fails. I'd pity Christina but she doesn't need it. She's rich, has a happy life and family, and seems to love what she's doing…even if she is a bitch.

  80. 80

    i used to like her and defended her from your insults but after hearing stories about her terrible attitude and hearing the terrible album she just put out, i'm completely turned off of her. it's such a shame, she has a beautiful voice.

  81. 81

    Re: sarahmargeurite
    I am a fan of Xtina because of her music, voice and talent, i don´t know her so i can´t say if she is a mean, shallow person or if she has a bad actitude. The media always pick on her (that's because she has what many other pop artists lack PERSONALITY), but at the same time i have seen her been nice with a lot of people (you can see photos and interviews too). Sarah let me tell you something if we have idols because of how are they in real life, then Michael Jackson (rumors of him with childs) or Britney (drugs, problems with her childs, crazyness….) wouldn't exist. At least i can say that Christina has managed to stay married, if she is so shallow why is she with a normal guy, she has managed to stay away of the public eye…I leave you my point of view…

  82. 82

    Why is people looking if xtina is a bad person???…..she is my idol no matter what, fans of other artists should respect that….because let's say some examples of other people idols and we can see that a lot of them has flaws….
    Michael Jackson (rumors of him been with childs…)
    Britney (drugs, crazyness, bad public image)
    Lindsay Lohan
    Paris Hilton
    Maybe Xtina is not the perfect thing but at least she has managed to have a normal life and be in the public eye. So stop the hating!
