    Because she is unoriginal now and even though she was around long before them her latest album looks like a white Niki Minaj with a gaga flair. And what is her target audience because her videos are just trash 'look at me Im pulling all of these faces' with waaay to much makeup and fake.

    She's not relevant anymore

    While she has a great voice, I think people are sick of her. Rumors of her mega diva behavior on The Voice doesn't help, nor does the weight she's put on. Maybe Adele and Kelly can get away with being overweight, but singers like Xtina, Britney, and their ilk have to look a certain way.

    i feel bad saying this but her personality. she's not very likable. seems very fake on the voice, just seems like naturally she's a brat. i hope not, i do not know her. But many people like genuine people. she doesn't do much to let people know she really cares about her fans or her music. she is VERY talented, though. Britney on Xfactor shows real emotions… really cares.. she's still likable. I hope christina figures out what will make her shine again. Times have changed.

    I got it yesterday and I actually really like it. But I do agree that it wasn't promoted as well as it should have been. RIhanna has been everywhere promoting her album, but Christina was on Chelsea Lately and the late night shows.

    Christina always played second fiddle to Britney. She was never as interesting or as popular. For a few years she went away and other people took her place. I was never really a fan of hers other than her song "genie in a bottle"

    It could also have something to do with her fake tan, abundance of makeup and bad hair. Niki, Gaga are going for Outrageous and she just looks like an aging popstar trying to be young.

    Doing the Voice was a mistake. It puts her in the has been category and paired with amateur vocalist. You are the company you keep.

    I must say when I was 15 years old I really liked Christina as a artist. But now that I'm 25 my choice of music has changed Christina now doesn't sing about anything that's relatable to me. She has to go "back to basics" once again.

    Her record label (if she still has one after this) needs to step in and take away all of her creative control. She screwed herself over in the beginning by trying too hard to be different. People like Britney and Madonna have become who they have become, because they can manage to evolve as performers, yet maintain their fan base, and deliver albums that are recognizably Britney and Madonna signatures. Christina tried to go off in other directions, and be "the voice of our generation" and now she is trying desperately to come back and do what Britney established from the beginning. Long story short, she's lost, her music sounds lost, and she needs to figure herself out before putting another album out.

    Poor Promotion

  12. Millie says – reply to this


    12

    What i can't believe her album isnt selling well even with all the "time" she put into promoting it?? Oh wait thats right she didnt even do ONE talk show to promot her stupid album, maybe Xtina should take a page out of the Taylor Swift book, when Taylor promoted RED there wasn't a talk show she DIDN't do, could that be why she sold 1.2 million copies in the first week ALONE hmmm its such a head scrachter



  13. 13

    Because her music doesn't appeal to the teeny boppers with really bad taste that are into like taylor swift, one direction, justin bebier, etc and it doesn't appeal to people with alternative taste or artsy taste either… her musical choices aren't that great overall right now. And her better stuff right now, like the stuff with Sia doesn't get that much radio play so it doesn't seem successful even if it's really good.

    Truth be told I <3 XTina! Back in the early 2000s when I was a teen she was the sh!t. That said I feel like she has lost her target audience. Hope she finds her way b/c she has talent!

    Re: Ashley

    Mary J. Blige said in an interview a while back, that when she met her, she told her she wouldn't last in the business because of her poor attitude.



  16. 16

    Honestly, I don't find Christina very likeable. I won't deny she has an incredible voice, but her music is not innovative, it's the same crap as everyone else is pumping out. Plus, yeah, she did put herself out there as a skinny sex kitten and well, she's not skinny anymore and the public doesn't like it.

    OMG! It's because XXL-tina is an unlikable tub of lard!!!



  18. 18

    great talent does not necessarily = profitability
    The woman has a god given voice but she shouldn't take it personally I mean the best selling music 80% of the time really sucks. Gangham Style, really? Plus at this point she doesn't need the money nor the fame. Everyone knows who she is, her voice alone is legendary.

    Fist of all i'm a fan…I even liked Bionic, It had a Santigold/MIA feel too it but i felt there where many throw away tracks. So this is what i'm kinda getting tired of as a fan.
    1) The over signing and grunting on songs is getting tiring. She never did this on her first two albums. (the successful ones)
    2)Promotion really isn't there.
    3)The new album isn't really that good. There's like 3 great songs on it and the rest sound generic. How about an album with 12 awesome songs instead of 18 songs with okay music.

    i purchased already.. sounds ok.. Let There Be Love is a great track..



  23. 23

    was there a music video? usually theres a fab song months before the album is released



  24. 24

    I think it's not doing well because she lost her "thing." None of the others could do ballads or soulful music like Christina could. Now she's trying to be this super-skinny-poppy-dance performer that she IS NOT. She needs to try and get back to the days of "Beautiful" and realize that's where her talents are. There's NO WAY any of these new acts could do Beautiful like Xtina did it.

    27

    Even though she has a terrific voice, I think people are just over the whole power ballad singing that Christina does, and want more indie, quirky music.

    Also, part of Christina's success was her body and looks but now she's lost them and girls just don't idolize her the same way they used to.

  28. Rye says – reply to this


    28

    She's not relatable and comes across as too much of a diva. She seems smug and buys too much into her own hype. Christina has an amazing voice and is a great songwriter but, like Mariah Carey, she has created this persona that is "better" than everyone else. Britney may not be as talented but she still has the girl next door appeal and you want to root for her. Christina needs to become more real and loose all the pretense…

  29. Iissll says – reply to this

    I agree w a comment below. Her music hasn't matured. Also, shes trying to do dumb pop when I love her bc of her powerhouse vocals. Christina.. Your voice is majestic & first class… Don't try to compete w those youngsters that are barely starting.. You are BEYOND that.. Time to let your work show it.

    It's because Xtina's star has faded. Everyone knows who the real star of that show is. Maybe if she wasn't so overeXposed, she would fair better with people. People are over her Diva antics. They want someone relatable which is why Blake and Adam are sticking around for season 4 and not ceelo and Xtina. don't need spray ran or animal mascots to win over viewers.

    Poor promotion, and she chose a bad date to release the album considering "the weeknd" released his the same day.



  33. 33

    Well, according to Ms. Aguilera, Bionic did not do well because it was ahead of its time.
    So maybe Lotus is WAY ahead of its time. Then again, maybe she has systematically alienated her fanbase & made herself into a hasbeen.

    Fuck sales and fuck radio play! LOL seriously…..not all pop stars have to sell 10 million albums. It's about the music and the fans. I loved Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" album. So many people said it wasn't commercial enough, who cares!? Her best song's off it were Scheibe, Government Hooker, Bloody Mary…..song's that would never be singles. I'm tired of hearing Rihanna and Katy Perry on the radio…….This is why I listen to other pop acts like Robyn, Goldfrapp, Peaches, Annie, Lana Del Rey, Dragonette……who have huge loyal fan bases but arn't all over, all the time……



  35. 35

    It sucks, she sucks…



  36. 36

    but lets face it. sales dont mean a damn thing anymore. these days it seems the more repetitive/crappy the song, the better it will sell. if i was Christina, i would honestly take the low sales as a compliment. has long as her fans like it, then thats all that matters.

    I blame promotion as well.. her motion shuts. I'm so disappointed because yes Lotus is actually really good!!! America come on buy Lotus you won't be disappointed.

  38. Kelly says – reply to this


    38

    Well, I don't think it was promoted that well and also because I saw on one link that she had 110,000 downloads of her album. A lot of people get stuff for free. My friend burned me a copy of her cd but I might buy one to help her sales anyways but I think it's one of those records that needs to catch on and gradually the sales will start to go up. I don't know but this is a million times better than Bionic. That was atrocious.

  39. Kathyrn says – reply to this


    39

    It's her image. She just looks so trashy and usually her style will reflect her album. Stripped she was strong and young, Back to Basics she was classy and unique and the last one she was trying too hard to be like Lady Gaga. I'm sorry but since Back to Basics I just don't feel very supportive of her. If she had stayed on that path or made similar music I think she would of become one of the greats but now I just think meh… which is sad.



  40. 40

    This album is clearly not her best work. Personally I like Bionic very much. I feel like, Christina gave in to what is popular, rather than staying true to herself. Which is unfortunate. For me, Bionic was a great move for Christina, and I agree that it was before it's time. Lotus… just missed the mark for me. I'm a die-hard X-Tina fan, but Lotus isn't doing it for me.



  41. 41

    Christina used to write music for the underdog. It was deep music that met you in a place where a lot of artists aren't able to go emotionally. But this album seems vapid. It lacks that spirit that made us love her. She isn't really talking about anything in these tracks. It's just too "pop". And not like, Genie in a Bottle pop. Bad pop.

    44

    her style be whack.
    it doesn't seem she's using her talents to their potential. also, i think she should go for a more mature sound/image while still keeping it pop, fun, and sexy
    ALSO, i think her music reflects the current time and trends more than her own style, but i'm sure she'd beg to differ. a talent like hers is not meant to be entirely trendy. i feel she could make a much greater impact in the music world than she is currently.
    i wish i'd at least hear her cover more classics
    i'd buy that.

    also, her bleached hair, insane fake tanning, and makeup overwhelm me. she looks much better natural in my opinion.

  45. Bron says – reply to this


    45

    The probable reason for this is because firstly, she is not promoting the album as much as other big time artists. Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and One Direction have released (or will release) a new album in the next few weeks. She's picking the wrong time to release one, not promoting it enough and not playing to her strengths. Electro-pop and Dance are not her strengths. Her REAL strengths are singing powerfully behind soft piano notes. Not dance music. Her voice doesn't suit that.

    I'm not a fan of Pigtina, but I will admit she has infinatley more talent than Wand Erection. It's just inconceivable that 5 little dicks like this with no talents, song writing abilities, music playing..anything about them can sell so well. They weren't even friends irl before X factor..Its all so utterly cynical, contrived and repellant. They aren't even that good looking and are bound to have the typical bad British Hygiene. So fuicking whack.

    53

    Somebody has already said it, but I agree that she has this perception as being unlikable and America nowadays is all about being likeable, which is ok, but then turns people into these fake characters that smile at you at work, on the street at restaurants when they don't really mean it thinking they have to look likeable when they're actually miserable.

    Maybe because her singing style is always the same. She likes to let you know she cane sing in every song and that can get very annoying. She needs to tone it down and sing from the heart not be too commercial. And she got fat too!!! LOL!!!



  58. 58

    its sad to see perez in tears over christinas second flop in a row…
    could it be because she threw out one guy so she could screw the hell outta another guy or so i heard and she could make more money as poster woman for jenny craig..shes fat shes proud shes loud not a good combination

    I used to love Christina back in her "Stripped" days. It's still in my top 10 favorite CDs. Now? I agree with what pretty much everyone has said. She comes across as a diva when she hasn't earned it.

    As for her weight, on the one-hand i like that she looks like a normal woman (she's a mother, 31, and was HIGHLY pressured to remain thin as a young woman) but that "normal woman" look clashes completely with her over-the-top makeup and unflattering wardrobe. She needs to pick a look and go with it. She DESPERATELY needs a new stylist because whoever decided what she wears needs to be drawn and quartered. Because right now she looks like a daytime truckstop stripper. She's a beautiful girl. All the extras detracts from that.

    As for her music, It's just kind of boring. she's not really edgy, or sexy, or unique. She has a stellar voice of course. But a great voice does not a star make.



  61. 61

    I love her and am sad….its her personality, sadly. She needs to do less and try less…. she is obviously phoney in interviews, I have to wonder what she is really like underneath it all because we just dont see it. I thought with The Voice it would help bring her geniune kindness and fun across but…….. it doesn't. She speaks as though she's had PR training…doesn't do anything really wrong but doesn't really do anything WOW. The album IS good….but her over the top look is just not. People liked Stripped because it was laid back and I wish she'd be more laid back. I have nothing but love for her and I'll buy the album…but promotion on this didn't really happen and when she did perform it was OVER the TOP and took away from the song. Sigh. Love u xtina.



  62. 62

    Her hair, her makeup, her personality on screen….fake fake fake FAKE. Come on Christina we know you are likeable, you have to strip that shit down and show your true self again.

  64. 64

    That's so normal, that's reality, there's the magic moment and then it's gone, her magic moment has come and gone, just take a look at other artists like Cyndi Lauper and it's the same thing, some people most of the times in their career only have one great album. To me when they get married and have kids the magic seems to vanish. Lets see if maybe Beyonce can prove me wrong but I doubt it.

    It's probably bc she's trashy and rude. I used to buy her records til she got dirrtty.



  66. 66

    oh god, i love christina aguilera. so so much, she's the best vocalist of my generation. People in their early to mid 20's don't really buy cd's, that's the audience that she appeals to. Young people keep the music industry alive and they aren't into her, at all. I feel like Bionic was an amazing album, really really good- she just got lost in lady gaga's prolific persona. Christina is always herself. Lotus feels a GREAT deal like Stripped, down to some of the actual phrases in the album being repeated, [Army of me vs. Fighter]. She a legend, hands down, but she's not marketable anymore. I just said I was a huge, huge fan… but I didn't buy Bionic or Lotus and I don't plan on it. She needs to carve a new niche for herself in this pop industry, IF she wants to be a pop star. She should probably just relax and make soft, beautiful and perfect ballads. an album of CONTROLLED ballads that are moving and easy to listen to. We know what christina is capable of vocally, i want to her something different from her. On Lotus I loved Circles and Blank Page and that's about it :[



  67. 67

    LOL @ her fans saying she's not being promoted. Firstly, she's on one of the biggest music shows on TV. Secondly the fat lardy Miss Piggy clone is a LAZY bitch. Everybody knows this as well as being a bitch. People just dont like her enough and her music has sucked for many years coz she brings nothing new ever.



  68. 68

    Ahahahaha.Looks good on the bloated,arrogant,bitch.She has zero work ethic,zero creativity,and thinks nothing of insulting whats left of her fanbase by cancelling tours.
    She can't be very bright either given it was pretty obvious RCA had given up on her with
    the release of Bionic.

  69. Gigi says – reply to this


    69

    Bionic was ok, and her new album is good. I like her music, mostly. I think the problem is that Christina doesn't come off as a likeable person. She comes off as arrogant and rude. She has been in so many feuds with other celebs and there are many reports of her being hard to work with. Plus, I didn't see her perform Your Body one time. Shouldn't she have been on all the talk shows etc. singing the first single ? I would think so.



  70. 70

    Because she is trying way too hard. She has possibly one of the most amazing voices of her generation. Her material should be more original. Time to take a page from Madonna's playbook. Take a break, go away and come back with a completely different vibe. The hair, the makeup, the clothes. Tacky and cheap. The voice, priceless.



  71. 71

    My guess would be because Christina comes across as a horrible and mean person. Reports that she called Kelly Osborne fat for years, and her diva behavior, just confirm that she's not nice - and why would we want to support and give money to someone like that? Britney, even as flawed as she is, is more relatable because she is a real person, plus she does seem like a sweet girl. Xtina's days are over. Not to mention, she is doing NOTHING different. Bad hair, bad clothes, bad weight, bad songs. Over her.

    76

    I have to agree with a lot of the other comments. I grew up with Xtina and was always a huge fan of hers especially because I always felt that she got back seated to Britney even though she had the pipes! But, honestly, after 15 years now I can't honestly say I feel like I know the chick at all. Likeability does factor in, and over the last few years she has really made me question why I've ever been a fan of hers.. besides her God given talent. She seems like she's always trying to prove something, especially those first 2 season of the Voice, I couldn't stand her! And this season so far she seems to be playing nice which makes me think it's because she had an album dropping and someone told her to behave!

  77. nic says – reply to this


    77

    As far as her body, I think if she's genuinely happy at her current size that's great!! BUT she needs to then adjust her clothing. Anyone who goes from a size 2 to a size 10 needs to stop dressing like they're still a size 2! And she never shows a vulnerable side, ever! She does have an amazing voice, but so do a lot of people… and it always seems as if she EXPECTS to just get respect, recognition and success simply because she has that voice and feels disrespected every day of her life when she doesn't get it… oh, and because she's a woman! I'm a woman too and all for female empowerment but enough already!!!! No one has ever denied she has a voice, but Britney still gets rooted for regardless of her lack of talent and I don't think many people are rooting for Christina anymore… I'm not.

  78. Sabrina says – reply to this

    She is simply too great for this world !!! The album is really good and it was for her fans so maybe thats why it wasnt promoted as much.. Obviously shes not trying to take over the world with this… Shes just giving great music,soul and talent as usual and thats what the fans have been waiting for!!! She is a legend, always will be…she knows it, we know it… You can keep hating on meaningless things like weight,make up,tan or whatever u THINK she is as a person.

    She's got to lose weight. The terrible hair that matches her clothes? That's horrible! I don't think you've got to be skinny to sell records but if you've already been a super hot popstar, people want to see you hot again. No kind of comeback is going to happen if you look like yesterdays news.

    Christina came out when I was 8, and I listened to her a lot when I was a teenager. Now I'm
    21 and I don't listen to her at all. I actually LIKE the fact that looks like a normal person now, but giiiirl. She needs to stop dressing like she's still that 102 lb 17 year old that was on the scene in 2000. I feel the same way about Mariah….they both need to realize that they aren't in their 20s anymore. They need to dress accordingly. Christina needs to dial EVERYTHING back….tan, hair, MAKE UP, clothes. She just isn't relatable at all, and seems like she is just trying way too hard to keep up with the youngin's. Yes she's only 31, but that is ancient in "popstar land". She has so much talent, it's sad that she's not more successful.

    She has a great voice, that is true. But she has a shitty personality! She comes across as if she's so above everyone else out there, and she sounds phoney when saying it! She never has anything interesting to say because she constantly recycles her answers for every era. When listening to her talk, she doesn't seem to have a genuine bone in her body, and she's a fricken narcissist. I'm sorry, but, she's a turn off to people. But can she sing? Yes, she can. But over sung high notes does not mean people will buy her album. I have to laugh when I see comments asking if she is underrated because she hasn't received much love over the last two era's. Underrated, really? This woman should be selling albums on her name alone. But, no one cares about her anymore because she reeks Bitch all over! Oh, and LOL at Perez for acting like he's upset that her album is tanking.

  85. Miguel says – reply to this


    85

    I deff think it's the lack of promotion. Her team should've went all out this time, she shoulda performed "Your Body" on The Voice weeks before the release, that way the single rises up on iTunes and has more radio play! She should've performed on Good Morning America or Today show to promote the album. It sucks she's not getting promotion and this album is very good! 2nd single should bounce her up hopefully.

    86

    I think she's just trying too hard. I used to really love Christina. I even really enjoyed Bionic after I bought it. But I'm just really sick of her talking about sex all the time and pushing her sexuality in my face. We get it. She likes sex. She needs to evolve and move on. It's generic pop with a raunchy twist. Even her look is played. She needs to find herself, get back to making music that's real, and drop the fakeness.

    Re: Phibes – I would argue that Bionic was BEHIND the times. I think she'd have done better to release Bionic when she did Back to Basics and then have released Back to Basics more recently.

    [Part 1] I can't believe how many people in here are actually talking about Britney Spears as if she is some kind of legitimate artist. I don't know one person in real life who actually has the idiocy to compare Christina to Britney all these years after they emerged on the music scene together. Britney is the perfect example of the celebration of mediocrity in music that has become so prominent in our culture today. I have never heard her give one indication that she has any depth or noteworthy understanding of music and art, and she is still one of the absolute worst singers in the business. I don't consider Christina to be on the intellectual level of a Rhodes Scholar, nor do I think she has the artistic potential of, say, a doctoral student at Juilliard. However, she has always been one of the few pop stars who has been able to talk about music and singing in a relatively intelligent way. I don't always agree with her interpretive decisions when performing, and she could really stand to pay more attention to style and detail (particularly in her live performances). Regardless, she is so far beyond the vast majority of pop stars in ability level, and it's a crime (though completely unsurprising in the age where Kate Gosselin and Snooki became famous) that she is so underappreciated.

    [Part 2] Unfortunately, since going on The Voice, both she and Adam have steered their careers firmly into the mainstream. I know that a lot of Maroon 5 and Christina fans feel insulted by their 2012 releases. I don't know if it was Christina's choice or her label's choice to make Lotus such a mainstream, vacant album that sounds like a mix of Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and Leona Lewis, but it was a terrible move for the sake of her artistic credibility. Bionic had its fair share of mainstream tracks that were forced onto it at the last minute, but at least they were still high-quality, unlike "Around the World" from Lotus. People will always hate her personality and her carnal embracement of sexuality, but going so mainstream has pissed off the fans she has left. She could probably maintain a decent following if she decided to make true R&B/soul music like Anthony Hamilton and Alicia Keys. The pop scene just isn't for her.

    because blogs like yours were so cruel to her in the last few years that, before Ellen called you out as a bully and you toned it down, you successfully made a joke out of a talent bigger than any auto-tuned, overproduced poptart out there….Congratulations, Perez. When you look back at your life, you can take pride in what lovely things you've accomplished to hurt other people.
    The Lotus album IS really good, but your damage has already been done.

    Re: Ashley – the media gives the impression it's ok to be a salty bitch such as pistol packing wanna be nikki minaj, pink, avril lavign but heaven forbid that christina should say a cross word about someone.

    christina has done nothing to deserve the way the media has savaged her image and probably ruined her career.

    she should go out lookin' her best though. she should come out looking as fierce as she did at the january 2010 golden globe awards in the beautiful pink gown. she looked totally flawless.

    Re: IndyTony – i agree with you 100%. how can all of those who tore her apart by criticizing every move she made and building a false image of her as a total loser stand to look in the mirror.

    it's sad as you said that they would destroy a true talent while inflating the careers of so many studio manufactured zombies.
