Christina Aguilera wreaks havoc in 'Your Body' video: Watch it here

If Christina Aguilera tries to lure you into the bathroom at a seedy bar, don’t do it! It’s a trick.

How do we know? Because all of Xtina’s dirty little tricks are on display in her new “Your Body” video, which begins with the disclaimer “No men were harmed in the making of this video.” The clip features the Voice mentor dolled up like a trailer-park-raised Lucille Ball, riding around in a pink pick-up truck and causing trouble all around town.

Take a look at “Your Body”  below and let us know what you think in the comments:

It’s a good day to be a reality-show judge–slash–pop star!

On the heels of today’s new track from all-but-confirmed American Idol judge Nicki Minaj, Voice mentor Christina Aguilera got back to fostering her own musical career with “Your Body,” the first single off her upcoming album Lotus, due out November 13.

”This album is about self-expression and freedom,” she told Ryan Seacrest this morning. “There is a lot I have gone through personally over the past few years and this record represents a rebirth for me. The record is about freedom and getting back to the root of who I am and what I love to do.”

Christina Aguilera has been keeping busy with her judging gig on The Voice, but she’s made time to record some new music too. On Wednesday she had a few announcements for her Twitter followers about the new record, including the cover art for the first single, “Your Body.”

Fans will have to wait for the album, called Lotus, until November, but “Your Body” is set for a release this Friday. The Monday, Sept. 17 episode of The Voice will feature a clip of the music video for “Your Body.” Melina Matsoukas, who also directed Rihanna’s VMA-winning “We Found Love” video, directed the “Your Body” video.

While answering fans questions on Twitter, Aguilera revealed some more about Lotus: “There are some beautiful personal ballads on this album. I wouldn’t do a record without them,” she wrote.

Check out the cover art for Aguilera’s “Your Body,” which prominently features her body, below: READ FULL STORY

The Wanted are sort of sorry about Christina Aguilera, now talking about Britney Spears

Sorry, but: Oops, they did it again!

(Again, so sorry.) After calling Voice popster Christina Aguilera “a total bitch” in a radio interview last week and semi-apologizing for it, the British boy band the Wanted are now gossiping about Britney Spears behind her back — literally.

The group showed up on New York’s Fresh 102.7 this morning to talk about their experiences with Spears, whom they opened for in Manchester last fall.

“We signed a confidentiality thing that we should never say anything about what happened, but let’s tell it anyway,” said the Wanted’s Tom Parker, the same dude who lobbed the B word at Xtina. READ FULL STORY

The Wanted slam Christina Aguilera, calling her scary, rude, and 'nothing special' lookswise -- VIDEO

The Wanted performed on The Voice last Wednesday — but apparently, judge Christina Aguilera wasn’t glad they came.

Members of the British boy band recently told 92.3 NOW radio host Sarah Lee that when they met Xtina, she didn’t exactly make a good impression. In fact, according to Tom Parker, she was “a total bitch” to the group. Tell us how you really feel, Tom!

After her interviewee dropped the “b” word, Lee looked shocked. But Parker stood his ground, again calling Aguilera a bitch — and then his bandmate Siva Kaneswaran chimed in, adding that he also thought the “Beautiful” singer was “quite rude.”

So what, exactly, did Xtina do? “She might not be a bitch in real life, but to us she was a bitch,” Parker elaborated. “She just sat there and didn’t speak to us, or look at us.” And according to Nathan Sykes, she gave Justin Bieber the same frosty treatment, looking at him askance when he went in for a hug. Watch him and his mates rip into Aguilera below:

iTunes: Adele tops 2011's best-selling song and album charts

Did we need further evidence that this has been Adele’s year sales-wise? Probably not. But for the benefit of anyone still debating the matter, iTunes has just announced that the British singer’s track “Rolling in the Deep” was the year’s top downloaded song while its parent album, 21, was 2011’s most popular collection. iTunes also named Adele its Artist of the Year.

21 was followed on the album list by Mumford & Sons’ Sigh No More and Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV. LMFAO claimed second place on the singles list with “Party Rock Anthem” while Katy Perry’s “Firework” was third.

Little Big Town covers 'Moves Like Jagger': Watch!

The country quartet Little Big Town, known for its smokin’ smooth harmonies, has covered Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger” for the latest installment of its online video series “Scattered, Smothered & Covered.”

I’m reminded of something Keith Urban once told me: “If you’ve got something on the ghetto blaster that sounds like it should never have banjo anywhere near it, that’s the perfect song to put banjo on. Banjo goes on everything — it’s a bit like whipped cream, really. Well, I guess whipped cream probably shouldn’t go on fried chicken, but banjo does seem to fit really well on anything that’s got a groove.”

'Michael Forever': Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, Cee Lo Green, and Michael Jackson's children appear at controversial tribute show

Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, and Ne-Yo all performed at the controversy-plagued Michael Jackson tribute concert “Michael Forever” earlier today, according to the AP. Jackson’s three children — Paris, 13, Prince, 14, and Michael Joseph Jr., 9 — also appeared onstage to address the audience at the show, which took place in Cardiff, Wales.

Ne-Yo started the concert with a performance of “Billie Jean;” Jackson’s brothers Marlon, Tito, and Jackie tackled the Jackson 5 hit “Blame It On the Boogie” with British boy band JLS; and Christina Aguilera sang “Smile.” Meanwhile, Beyonce performed “I Wanna Be Where You Are” via satellite. The Jackson children returned to the stage for the finale, “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.”

“Michael Forever” had attracted criticism for a variety of reasons, including the fact that it was set to coincide with the manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, who is accused of contributing to  Jackson’s death. Several of Jackson’s other siblings, including Janet, declined to take part in the concert and last week the Black Eyed Peas withdrew from the show, citing “unavoidable circumstances.”

'Moves Like Jagger' hits number one on Billboard, continues tradition of singles you can only get on deluxe albums

Adam Levine don’t need no stinkin’ MTV to score a chart-topping hit.

When “Moves Like Jagger,” Maroon 5’s collaboration with Christina Aguilera, surfaced a few weeks ago, it seemed like the perfect way to capitalize on the success of The Voice, bringing together two of the hit singing competition’s coaches and giving them a sharp groove produced by Shellback (Britney Spears’ “If U Seek Amy”) and Benny Blanco (Katy Perry’s “California Gurls”).

The combination paid off: After four weeks on the chart, “Moves Like Jagger” has ascended to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. The single has also provided a boost for Hands All Over, the under-performing Maroon album that dropped last year but has been reissued with a handful of extra tracks (including “Moves Like Jagger”). After falling into the lower echelons of the album chart, it’s back up in the top 30 this week and promises to continue climbing on the back of the chart-topper.

“Moves Like Jagger” is part of an interesting trend of late-blooming singles that have breathed new life into dormant albums. Though she didn’t necessarily need the boost,  Beyoncé tapped Lady Gaga to augment the I Am … Sasha Fierce track “Video Phone” for the release of the deluxe edition of that album, which gave it an extra few months (and also that awesome video).

And remember when Shakira scored a hit with “Hips Don’t Lie” and you had to buy the rerelease of Oral Fixation Vol. 2—because the song wasn’t immediately available as a standalone single—to get it? That was a true comeback; that album ended up going nearly double platinum after “Hips Don’t Lie” became a runaway smash.

Album buyers may cry foul because they invested in the album in the beginning and don’t get automatic access to a hit, but it’s a pretty good gamble for bands looking to keep the heat on albums that otherwise might be fading.

Can you think of other instances where this occurred? Does it seem like fair play to you? Sound off in the comments below!

Gossip site accuses Christina Aguilera of child abuse, her lawyer responds accordingly

Christina Aguilera’s lawyer sent a strongly worded letter to a celebrity gossip site after a photo of the singer holding her three-year-old son Max, who appears to have a black eye, showed up online with a more than suggestive headline.

The title above the photo on MediaTakeOut.com read, “CHILD ABUSE???? CHRISTINA AGUILERA’S SON IS PHOTO’D WITH A BLACK EYE!!!” without producing any real proof.

“To imply that she had something to do with this incident, without any investigation on your part whatsoever, is reckless and unconscionable,” Aguilera’s attorney, Eric Greenspan, writes in a letter. “Christina is a wonderful mother and was not present in the park when Max fell and hurt himself.”

MediaTakeOut has since removed the child abuse portion of the headline and added Greenspan’s explanation for the black eye.

Greenspan does not see the matter going any further, but has not spoken with Aguilera directly about the incident. “There are lines you’re just not supposed to cross, and that’s one of them,” he says exclusively to EW. “Accusing a mother—even hinting that a mother is guilty of child abuse, that’s a line you don’t cross.”
