Looks like The Wanted aren’t fans of Christina Aguilera.
In an interview with morning host Sarah Lee, the band talked about the singer and how they think her judgement isn’t so good.
The guys have performed on both American Idol and The Voice. On Idol, Max George jumped off the stage to give a little hug and a kiss to judge Jennifer Lopez.
When he was asked why he didn’t do that to Aguilera on The Voice, George replied, “She’s was bit scary, to be honest.”
Tom Parker, who failed to make the audition round on U.K’s “The X Factor” before joining The Wanted, also called her “a total bitch” and said she “wouldn’t even look at us.”
Turning back to George, who was asked what he was thinking when he jumped off the stage on Idol and kissed Lopez, he said: “Yeah well J-Lo’s hot. Christina’s nothing special so…”
Ouch! Well that’s gotta sting. This boy band really don’t censor anything!
Watch them discuss it here.
Outspoken actor Zach Galifianakis has dissed Ke$ha, reports Canoe Jam.
Galifianakis says he has constantly denied Ke$ha’s requests for dates, and flat out bashed her music upon meeting the singer.
Ke$ha has previously stated that Galifianakis is her ideal man, admitting she has the hots for fat and bearded men, but Galifinakis apparently doesn’t have the same penchant for sleazy blonde popstars.
“I saw that Ke$ha woman the other day. She was sitting by herself, and I walked up to her and said, ‘Listen, I got your e-mail. Your music is really bad! I don’t know who listens to it, but I imagine it’s, like, six year olds – and it’s a bad message,’” he tells Rolling Stone Magazine.
This isn’t the first time the ‘Hangover’ star has publicly dissed a celebrity. Just recently, he took aim at actress January Jones, calling her “rude” and stating she is an actress “everybody’s going to forget about… in a few years”.
I love his outspoken nature! It’s not often celebrities are so open. I can’t say I blame him for denying a date with Ke$ha, I can only imagine how classy that evening would be.
Moby has revealed that he does not consider songs by Britney Spears and Ke$ha to be music.
The singer-songwriter says he enjoys the popstars’ fun dance tunes, but believes that they should not be labelled “music.”
“It’s fun, but I don’t think of it as music,” Moby said. “It’s manufactured. I appreciate it as a pop culture phenomenon and some of the songs I like if I hear them in a shopping mall or something, but it doesn’t function as music for me.”
The 45-year-old went on to describe what he considers to be true music.
“Music is something that communicates emotion and integrity in a really interesting, direct way,” Moby said. “And when I listen to the pop music you’re describing, it’s hyper-produced corporate product. That isn’t really even a criticism, but I just think calling it music is a misnomer.”
That’s pretty harsh coming from someone who collaborated with Spears on her 2003 album ’In The Zone.’ He also recently described her as “broken,” claiming that the singer’s damaged nature is part of her appeal. Tell me how you really feel.
Sure, Britney and Ke$ha are no Aretha Franklin, but their music is music – pop music. It’s fun, it’s danceworthy, and it’s not meant to be taken too seriously. I think he’s taking it too seriously.
Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters has lashed out on Glee’s creator Ryan Murphy to The Hollywood Reporter this week.
Recent anti-Glee movements by artists Slash and the Kings of Leon have made news lately, both refusing Glee to use their songs in an episode. And now Grohl is defending these artists’ rights to say no.
“The Glee guy, what a f—ing jerk. Slash was the first one. He wanted to do Guns ‘n’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate f—ing musicals. It’s worse than Grease.’ Then [Murphy's] like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed up ol’ rock star, that’s what they f—ing do.’ And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little assholes…’ And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee. Me included.”
“F— that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee,” said Grohl on Glee’s creator Murphy. “It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f—ing Glee.”
Grohl says he has watched the show, but believes his music and brand doesn’t fit the mould of what the show stands for. “I watched 10 minutes. It’s not my thing,” Grohl said.
Although his comment on Murphy is a little aggressive, I kind of have to agree with him. Ryan Murphy needs to realize that not every band is going to allow you to use their music, I mean, it’s their choice and their decision. And if you’re going to retaliate with rude comments about every artist who doesn’t let you use a song, that’s just unprofessional.
I personally think Glee has gone way downhill since the first season. As opposed to the original plot lines of the beginning episodes, now, Murphy is basically targeting any hit song and using it as a cash cow for his TV show. I can understand why artists such as Slash or Foo Fighters don’t want to sell out like that. I mean, if I hear the Glee version of “Don’t Stop Believin” one more time… I swear to god, I might release an aggressive comment to The Hollywood Reporter myself.
We all know M.I.A. is talented, unique and intellectual with her lyrics, but we didn’t know she was such a hater. Dose.ca reports that she had a few words of her own on what everyone raves about today: Lady Gaga and Twilight – in her NME cover interview. And, she is also expected to drop a new album in the next few months, but that wasn’t a hot topic in comparison to her running her mouth about Gaga.
The outspoken MC brings up Lady Gaga three times in her Q&A, and not because it was a Q, or to give the fellow singer props.
Instead, the 34-year-old outlandish MC said exactly what she thought of the equally out-there Gaga.
