Christina Aguilera reveals 'Lotus' tracklist, bashes bloggers
Today, Aguilera announced the tracklist, below, with deluxe version titles. "Red Hot Kinda Love" and "Let There Be Love" were, perhaps, not written for her critics.
"Now everyone is a critic," she explained during a very open Keynote Q&A session at the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Conference yesterday. Speaking with a smile, she took aim at tabloids and writers. "I don't read blogs. It's just God-knows-who in Buttf*ck wherever writing hate sh*t. You can't take it seriously. I'm sure you've all been hated on at some point by Buttf*ck people.
"It's hard being such a powerful woman in the business. I'm known for not always being warm and fuzzy, because you'll just get bulldozed over. You learn to put up this little protective shield, but it's because of something. In my music, I come off as being very open about being insecure, vulnerable and sensitive sometimes. Then I'll go onstage and be this powerhouse force to be reckoned with," she said of her career. "I really truly don't have time for the static noise. It's just not real. They're not real magazines. It's trash. It's rumors."
"I've not actually seen a full episode of any of the other music shows," she said. "I saw the commercials early on of 'American Idol' of Simon being a d*ck. I was like, 'Man, that's not what it's about!' I didn't want to treat people like that. I wanted to do 'The Voice' to show that we can be positive. We don't have to knock people down."
Aguilera will be taking a break from "The Voice" for its fourth season, but will be back with cohort CeeLo Green for the fifth.
