Some say any press is good, but there seems to be nothing but trash talk about Christina Aguilera these past few weeks. Between her sloppy Grammy performance, detainment for suspicion of public intoxication, poor-selling album Bionic, divorce from marketer Jordan Bratman whom she was married to for five years and lyric-flub of the national anthem at the Super Bowl Aguilera has not been looking too “Beautiful” in the limelight.
Things may be looking up, however, given that Aguilera is set to be on the judging panel for The Voice, which is a Mark Burnett production and basically NBC’s version of American Idol. Maybe there is a light in the dark for this megastar
Claude Kelly, a contributing songwriter for both Bionic and Burlesque, told Entertainment Weekly, “All the media attention she’s getting, I guarantee it’s going to inspire her to release music that shows the world that it’s not over.”
This wouldn’t be the first time a diva has defeat public expctations to prove her talent and worth as a megastar. Perhaps it’s time the media and public took a break from celebrity scrutiny and instead held out for Aguilera’s eventual successful return.
