might be right? more like is right.
her stint on The Voice alone probably got her more money than most people will see in their lifetimes lol
there are people who are analyzing chart progression and radio play on these forums lol crazy how you see an instant rise in sales after promo though. sigh. so in total we get two performances of JAF. 1 performance of YB. 3 performances for the singles of this era. smh.
sometimes I wonder if Christina doesnt care anymore. like maybe shes jaded or something. She's had #1 albums and singles. Gone on highly successful tours. Done movies. Done television. 5 grammies. Maybe it really doesnt matter to her if Lotus is commercially successful.
and I'm actually kind of surprised how badly Lotus and YB did in the UK and Australia ...I mean she has 16 top ten singles in both countries for crying out loud. granted she did zero promo there but still
edit: JAF jumped to not being in top 100 to #45 on Canadian Itunes. power of promo.
this bitch lmao.
"Live your dream and never wake up." - Liam Payne
gurl do you see how often I post in this thread? telling me to listen to the lyrics...lol
which songs point to how she's an egomaniac tho? Shut Up? Circles?
and yes she worked with Max but I always find it a little weird people always mention that cuz she just worked on him for two songs. If she wanted it to be ultra commercial, why not have Max produce the entire album?
also I've heard people say its very commercial sounding but maybe thats just what shes into sonically atm. If she really wanted to make money, you would think she would be popping out albums and singles like Rihanna. You would also think she would promote her album like crazy. But so far we've had 2 performances between those two singles (3 if you count that YB performance on Fallon with the staplers)
edit: it jumped like 170 spots on US itunes today. cheese and rice.
I don't know how demanding her business is but I'm guessing promotion, touring, gigs, recording, rehearsals, photo shoots, etc. can all be heavily time consuming on someone who's a single mom. And yes I know she can hire a nanny and all that shit but maybe she just wants to spend time with her son herself.
Do I like Lotus? No. But I do like some of the ballads there which I've purchased. And Christina is a singer who could at any time surprise us in the future with a massively successful album if she wanted to get serious again. And even if she chooses not to record anymore she's set for life anyways. However it would be a shame if she stopped recording. I don't care if her albums sell 10k or 1 million+++ in the future, her voice is epic and her ballads are flipping amazing, so I really hope she keeps recording!
Just my thoughts
Well, Ive been thinking bout it, and yes her priorities have changed thats for sure, so are mine lol
I mean I liked the strippedtina and the BTBtina even the bionictina but i cannot support what she's become with this record.
There's nothing for the fans except pink wigs and queer performances and i wont be part of it.
I wont turn my back on her because she still did great things. But at this point there's not gonna be any lotus tour, and not any promotion for Lotus.
Im still waiting for a REAL come back but even her voice seems weak like she's not even trying to work on it.
ANd even if lotus is good, i just listen to a few songs thats it, and that the first time it happens to me.
So yeah Im disappointed and if she wants to keep up like this its her choice but it'll be mine not to followher anymore. Sadly
^Back to Basics is pure ear sex. I love it.
I'm actually a bit bored with her right now, to be honest. But there's plenty of music from the past I'll replay from time to time. I just find myself not really caring what she's up to at this point.
She doesn't seem to give a damn, and neither do I.
she is like no giving a damn care about Lotus
it's so tiring for us fans to promote the album through twitter, youtube, facebook, tumblr. video, itunes, polls, vote etc etc
if she just doesnt care and do some promote
what do you think she's gonna do between her break form The Voice 4 spring summer 2013?
She's been talking about how long its been since she's had a vacation so maybe just some relaxing.
I think everyone wants that though. We see her on The Voice like two hours a week but I'm sure her work hours are actually much more grueling than just two hours.
I think I've literally requested Your Body a over hundred times but its really no use it turns out because some radio stations will refuse to play it unless its a hit and others refuse to play it unless the artist has like gone done to the radio station itself and like sat down and talked with them. She did like one Ryan Secreast (sp?) interview. Sigh.
Or maybe she just doesn't care lol.
That being said, now I wonder why Britney's fanbase is still strong even though she seems like she doesn't care either, I mean when was the last time she put on a heck of a show? 2003? She can't sing or dance anymore and she can't even give interviews that aren't super rehearsed and monitored by her team. I guess the difference is that Britney releases albums way more often than Xtina.
Christina has the worst rap ever, people see her as a nasty bitch, and to be honest her music is really not that good, she oversings, her lyrics are over the top narcissistic and her albums are 50% fillers.
What Xtina should do is to get a manager who's only in charge of her like Britney's, Britney has an amazing team of people, they make her really sucessful despite her little efforts.
Christina to me comes across as a good girl pretending to be bad when she gets all Dirrty and stuff with her lyrics, songs, and videos. Britney comes across as a bad girl acting good which serves her better. Britney's voice is always taking a backseat to her production, but I think for some reason it works. It's actually a relief to sometimes hear a sort of okay voice with sick beats as opposed to just too many vocal runs, etc.
If Britney recorded Your Body it would have been #1. It just doesn't suit Christina.
And this is my favorite Britney song
Zero promotion from her, not even in the video, but the song is fucking amazing.
Britney is still famous because her best music was produced when she was a total train wreck, so even her 'rock bottom' is great. :P Should have stayed on the meth, I would definitely be a Britney follower if all of her music was like Blackout (love Toy Soldier, but in reality they're all pretty good). Joking aside she's always had a better marketing and production team than Christina, although Christina's had far better songwriters...but lyrical depth doesn't really sell Top 40.
I have never listened to a Christina album in the past, but I got Lotus, and honestly every song is awesome to me. I'm really proud, she's sounding great, and the songs are catchy. I love it!
And that said i dont think people like britney for the same reasons.
I follow christina because I liked her music, vocals, lyrics and artistic work.
I dont think i can say the same things about britney even if she made some great songs
I love how Canada is stanning for Christina. (#reasonstomovetocanada)
Though I kind of imagined the album would have had a higher debut seeing how YB was a top ten hit.
anyone know when New York's z100 takes on air requests? I feel like they ignore most online requests but do they ignore requests on air? is it as likely?
wow I thought my life was sad
also some people have the weirdest reasons why disliking xtina
"oh she seems like the type of person who makes out wt girls to get sleazy homophobic guys off" smh
also some media always make an easy punch bag for Christina for negative press
when she doing a positive cause, they take aside and dig a hole of negativeness like
she got more press when Hilary peeking her cleavage just only a 0.001 second instead of her honour
a bit stumble of her train dress at Grammys when performing Aretha tribute
her spray tan leaking at Etta James funeral and no one discussed about her high point note
no othe rbig media cares about her winning of Your Body for Best Video 2012
wtf is up with RCA. did you guys see Kesha's warrior debut in the UK? 66? the fuck?
where is the overseas promo
have you guys been requesting JAF on radio?
its gaining ground on adult contemp radio. slowly but surely! this could be a huge crossover hit guys. please request
Apparently she's performing at the People Choice Awards in January! I'm hoping she wins the Best Celebrity Judge nomination she got as well, I've voted multiple times.
^ I've heard about that too. But apparently the source is from a crazy unreliable Xtina stan. but then some people are saying they saw a commercial for Peoples Choice Awards with Let There Be Love...and someone said the commercial said she would perform...I have yet to see the commercial though...but then the guy who produces the Voice is also producing the People's Choice Awards...so...I have no clue
btw JAF just reached top 40 on Hot Adult Contemp radio. so request guys!
I hope it's true regarding People's Choice Awards appearance n performance
shun the non believer!!!
lol jk. what would you rather have as the single though?
Happy Birthday Christina Aguilera
let em eat cakes for birthday, Xmas, and new year
and in January 2013!!!!
looks like the people's choice award performance was reported by several news/gossip sites.
she's to be honored with the People's Voice award apparently
Late happy birthday wishes to the Iconic Xtina.
And the legacy lives on.

Their performance on The Voice was super cute and so was their bday wishes for her.
so this just occurred to me. I remember someone named aaronxp came into this thread talking about how xtina was egotistical based on her lyrics...yet failed to give any examples though I asked to do so twice
well I've been thinking why is xtina the vain one?
have anyone listened to the lyrics in today's rap? so much of it about they're the best or how they're balling or whatever. and that isn't egotistical? double standards y'all
i dare anyone to give me actual receipts of xtina being a bitch
EVERYTHING she writes is super narcissist it's all me, me, me, me, basically her whole discography is about how great, strong, powerful, free, talented, atistic she is, and if you can't read it, look at her attitude, her swag, her dire need to "speak her mind", there's something about her, she isn't likeable.
And about the receipts, just google "Christina aguilera bitch" or "Christina aguilera rude" and you'll have them, and I despise Rap music for everything you mentioned.
you sure like coming into this thread despite her dislikeability.
yea okay. you just read the reply. i believe you.
you clearly dont know anything about her whole discography.
I guess from your point of view, the odes to her son, her mother, her then husband were "about her"
and of course her music is predominantly about her. should we go after britney cuz her songs are "I wanna go" instead of "You wanna go"? or how "everyone wants to fuck her" or how "everyone wants a piece of her" or after Gaga she says "I'M on the edge of glory" and not "YOU'RE on the edge of glory"?
if you're so well versed if her discography. give me some actual lyrics.
the google results aren't receipts hunty.
i dont even have to google to know whats going to pop up.
the wanted - calls xtina a bitch. calls britney a bitch. calls a bunch of female popstars bitches. retracts statements once people get suspicious of how come so many female pop stars are bitches to them. retracts statements saying she seems likeable now.
kelly osbourne - starts shit with xtina. frequently disses her without xtina even replying. poster child for attention seeking children born with silver spoons.
avril lavigne - starts shit with britney in tabloids for absolutely no reason. backs down when asked about it. friends with kelly (?)
mariah carey feud - is herself a big diva
yea real credible sources.
she is gonna be at NYE with Carson Daly and People's Choice Awards for another achievement awards
pay that awards show to make an award for her
my local radio station FINALLY listened to my Just a Fool request after weeks and weeks of ignoring them ignoring me!
NOW IS THE TIME
STANS GO IN. REQUEST THAT SHIT!!!
i guess i didnt see this before but guess its official that shes performing.
I hope she does overseas promo or at least tries. Blake would be smart to TRY to promote with her overseas. that way he could try to break into overseas markets as well.
I'm losing faith... don't wanna be a bad stan but I feel like Lotus is going nowhere.
