Christina Aguilera Debuts Slimmer Figure

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

The 90s are so “in” right now, Christina Aguilera is jumping on the retro bandwagon by looking like her former self. The 32-year-old singer debuted her slimmer figure at the 2013 Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour for The Voice. While it’s not “Genie In The Bottle” skinny (after all, she was only a teenager back then), there’s no denying her new body is pretty slammin’.

Just a few months ago, she debuted an estimated 20-pound weight loss on The Voice season four finale. It would appear she’s lost even more weight since then. The “Beautiful” singer attributes doing exercises she enjoys like strength work instead of intense cardio as the key to her successful body makeover. Check out the results below.

Alejandro Fernandez’s duet with Christina Aguilera first surfaced back in May. At long last, we finally have the music video for their scorching Spanish collaboration. I wonder if the cause for delay was to allow XTina to reach her goal weight. After all, she’s practically wearing nothing in most of the clip. Whatever the reason, the 32-year-old looks sensational. Her boobies could have a Victoria’s Secret commercial of their own.

In the clip for “Hoy Tengo Ganas De Ti,” Auggie plays the sultry seductress while Fernandez plays dark and brooding leading man to a tee. Given the emotionally-charged nature of the song, the visual is equally as melodramatic. It’s like watching a mini glamorous telenovela. I’m sorta obsessed with it.

Christina should really consider dropping another Mi Reflejo-type album again. This duet premiered at No. 1 on Mexican iTunes and was certified platinum in just a little over two weeks. When was the last time that happened with any of Christina’s English singles? #JustSayin’ Check out the video below.

DJ Earworm Mashes Up Summer 2013’s Biggest Hits

In: Donovan, Music

What’s your song of the summer so far? Is it Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky?” How about “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke? Perhaps it’s Pitbull and Christina Aguilera’s catchy dance anthem “Feel This Moment?” DJ Earworm definitely considers them as viable contenders for the 2013 summer crown. The musical genius has once again worked his magic and delivered another wicked mashup. Praise the dance gods he doesn’t just do a year-end one.

Along with the aforementioned tracks, DJ Earworm includes hit tracks from Demi Lovato, Rihanna, Icona Pop, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Zedd, and Justin Bieber to name a few. Props to my buddy Trevor Guthrie for getting a nod for his collaboration with Armin van Buuren in the mashup.

As much as I love DJ Earworm’s latest masterpiece, I feel he unfairly snubbed Selena Gomez’s “Come & Get It,” Mariah Carey’s “#Beautiful,” Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors,” and Miley Cyrus’ oddly addicting “We Can’t Stop.” I’ve definitely have all those songs on heavy rotation. Check out Earworm’s new mash below.

2013 Billboard Awards: Five Takeaways

In: Donovan, Music

It’s a long weekend up here in my neck of the woods, ergo the delay of posts today. Sufficed to say, a good time was had by all yesterday and I’m paying the price now. Watching last night’s Billboard Music Awards today was the perfect remedy to bring me back to life. After seeing Taylor Swift walk away with eight awards, I had to share my five takeaways from the event held in Las Vegas. Find out what they are below.

This Old School Flashback Battle was inspired by a Facebook thread between a few friends of mine including Dave- a recent guest host on our Homorazzi show. What started as a conversation about Selena Gomez concert tickets (don’t get me started) quickly evolved to the age old debate… Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera? While I find both ladies talented in their own right *cough* Christina is better *cough*, it always fascinates me how passionate people are about either artist. Brit lip syncs, Christina is fat, Spears is crazy, Aguilera is a bitch, the list goes on. That may be all true, but one thing they have in common is both made splashy debuts with their first albums.

While Spears’ …Baby One More Time sold more albums than Aguilera’s self-titled album (14 million compared to 9 million domestically), X-Tina notched more chart toppers than Brit (three compared to one). Christina’s album ranked No. 23 on Billboards 2000s decade chart, ahead of Britney’s ranking of No. 81. To be fair, Spears released hers in the 90s and ranked No. 29 on the 1990-99 decade chart as well.

When it comes to critical acclaim, Christina holds a slight edge. Her powerful pipes helped upset Britney by surprising everyone at the Grammys by winning the Best New Artist Award. In the end, all that doesn’t matter. It’s all about the fans. Regardless of how you feel about each singer today, revisit the singles from each debut album and try to be impartial in determining which ex-Mouseketter had the better first effort.

Like it or not, Christina Aguilera is taking back what’s hers. reports the 32-year-old is officially returning to The Voice for Season 5. She took a break this season to promote her latest album Lotus. Rumor has it that she’s receiving $17 million to sit her butt back in those red swivel chairs.

Truth be told, I’m a little surprised she’s coming back and for that hefty salary. Ratings have actually increased and not dropped with the addition of Usher and Shakira. What does this mean for the “Hips Don’t Like” singer? With her in the midst of producing her own album, she’ll probably go on tour to promote it. I wonder if this means Cee Lo Green is also heading back. I like Green, but it’ll be interesting to see X-tina’s chemistry with Usher.

Are you excited to see Christina back? Do you think Shakira is a better judge/mentor? Sound off below.

Happy That Christina Aguilera Is Returning To The Voice?

Christina Aguilera Is Beyond Phenomenal On New Track

In: Donovan, Music

WOW. Simply amazing or should I say asombrosa since Christina Aguilera is belting her little heart out in Spanish on her new track. “Hoy Tengo Ganas De Ti” which roughly translates to “Today I Feel Like Having You” is a duet with Mexican singer Alejandro Fernandez. The track is a remake of a famous Spanish classic originally sung by Miguel Gallardo back in 1975. Xtina and Fernandez recorded it as the theme of the telenovela La Tempestad. Even before learning that, I immediately noticed how dramatic the song was. It all makes perfect sense now.

Alejandro is a fantastic vocalist, but he’s just musical roadkill when Christina gets to her parts. The 32-year-old singer just slays it. Even though he probably connects with the lyrics more since its his native tongue, Aguilera does a good job of pulling it off even though I’m sure she doesn’t understand a lick of it. LOL. Granted, she did release an entire Spanish album back in the day. I loved Mi Reflejo where she translated a few of her biggest hits to Spanish and sang original tunes as well. Check out Auggie’s superb new song below. Love or hate her, you can’t deny the woman has a phenomenal instrument.

Last issue, Time Magazine put same-sex marriage front and center on their cover. This time around they look to Jennifer Lawrence and six others to grace their annual 100 Most Influential issue. From artists and leaders to pioneers, titans and icons, the issue highlights the most influential people in the world. Each person is profiled by an equally luminary voice. In Lawrence’s case, it’s Academy Award winning actress Jodie Foster.

“You’ll remember where you were when you first felt it, how you were stuck to one spot like a small animal considering its end. The Jennifer Lawrence Stare. It cuts a searing swath in your gut. A reckoning. I remember going to the cutting rooms of Winter’s Bone. I thought, Sure, this girl can act. But, man, this girl can also just be.” – Jodie Foster

Photographer Mark Seliger snapped Lawrence for one of seven collectible covers. Gracing their own cover are Jay-Z (artist and entrepreneur), Elon Musk (SpaceX and Tesla founder), Li Na (tennis champion), Aamir Khan (film star and activist), Rand Paul (U.S. Senator) and 15-year-old activist Malala Yousafzai. Check out their covers below, along with some of my favorite entertainment stars included on the Time 100 list.
