None of Christina Aguilera’s BFFs Are Bloggers

There was a memorable industry Q&A today at the W Hotel in Hollywood. The occasion was the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Conference; the interviewee, singer and The Voice judge Christina Aguilera:

“Now everyone is a critic,” she said with a smile, on the subject of the tabloid press and online bloggers. “I don’t read blogs. It’s just God-knows-who in Buttf— wherever writing hate sh–. You can’t take it seriously. I’m sure you’ve all been hated on at some point by Buttf— people.”

Taking Aguilera’s analogy to its logical extreme, FishbowlLA checked out the blogs on the Internet’s two leading platforms that are literally parked at Buttf—. This will probably be only small consolation to Ms. Aguilera, but there is nothing posted at the Blogspot namesake, while WordPress Buttf— is in a foreign language.

Billboard editorial director Bill Werde did the Aguilera interview honors. To read the full report about today’s conversation by his colleague Ryan Downey, click here.
