Not Everyone Enjoyed Christina Aguilera’s Karaoke Tribute To “The Bodyguard” At The American Music Awards
Any doubt that the American Music Awards are the last-minute high school project version of the Grammys was removed last night when Christina Aguilera took to the stage for a tribute to the 25th anniversary of the soundtrack to The Bodyguard. We know it wasn’t a tribute to Whitney Houston, because at no point during Christina’s “most-confident bridesmaid at the bachelorette karaoke party” performance did anyone report seeing a disrespected ghost scream “Hell to the NO” while attempting to yank the mic plug from a power outlet backstage.
This is just what I want on a Friday after a long week; to be magically whisked back to the T-Mobile Sidekicks-and-low-rise lace-up crotch jeans years of the early 2000s. The pilot of our journey will be Pink, who told a story about Christina Aguilera coming at her in a club.
Pink’s got a new record out (Beautiful Trauma), so she’s giving those interviews. Some of the album’s tracks are about her marriage and the difficulties that come with remaining with one person for the long haul. In a talk with The Guardian, she noted how hard monogamy can be and that it once resulted in her and husband Carey Hart not having sex for a year. That’s probably not the best way to go about enforcing monogamy? But Pink wrote “Don’t Let Me Get Me” so we can probably trust her when it comes to matters of the heart (and genitals).
Back in August, Pink was over in London promoting her new music, and the hosts of a radio station asked her the most life-affirming question of our time: Team Taylor Swift or Team Katy Perry. She responded, but now she regrets it. Continue reading
Especially that demon bear clutching the Big Gulp behind her, but his seem like the wrong kinda feels. ANYWHO, Pink reminded everyone that just ‘cuz she wasn’t part of the blonde pop star brigade of the early aughts doesn’t mean she didn’t crank out a string of killer videos – critics be damned!
She performed a medley of her hits before scooping up the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at last night’s MTV VMAs. Her outfit was part Wonder Woman, part caution tape, and part mechanic at your neighborhood Jiffy Lube. She somehow even managed to ride a John Deere lawn tractor while followed by a flock of chainsaw-wielding dancers dressed like a censored Madonna in the Sex book. I hope someone was covering poor Charlie Puth’s eyes since his twink cherub self isn’t old enough to see such naughtiness! Thankfully, the dramatic dance crescendo involved a thrash dance around an IKEA couch instead of her usual aerial circus fare. Continue reading
There was so much fashion fuckery at the MTV VMAs last night, I barely know where to begin! If the Teen Choice Awards are the Middle School dance of awards shows, then the VMA’s are the Junior Prom at an alternative performing arts magnet school. Since it’s high school, I’ll be announcing the winners and losers in several categories. The first category is Most Obvious Genitalia, and that award goes to none other than Nicki Minaj.
