Tony Lucca‘s got 99 problems, and apparently, Christina Aguilera is one. All season long there’s been tension between the former Mousketeers, but on last night’s episode of NBC‘s The Voice, Aguilera took issue with Lucca and Adam Levine‘s decision to cover Jay Z‘s song, “99 Problems,” claiming that it was “a little derogatory towards women.” Adam argued that the chorus, “I got 99 problems but a b—- ain’t one” is a metaphor, referring to “life getting at you, things bringing you down”…not women. But what was more offensive — the song, or Christina’s wardrobe?
We’re all for empowering women, and the use of the word “b—-” in a song — especially a song sung on a reality competition that’s supposed to be somewhat family friendly — is definitely up for debate. But should that debate have been started by someone who’s been parading around in hot pants and fishnets most of the season?!
Surely, an artist who’s been practically vilified for some of her lyrics (“Genie In A Bottle,” “Dirrty”…) can understand that they’re not always meant to be taken literally. Unless she really is a genie who sweats until her clothes fall off.
Was this just another excuse to slam Tony Lucca?
What do you think RTVM? Are you Team Adam or Team Christina on this one? Was the song choice inappropriate and/or offensive? Was Christina Aguilera’s critique hypocritical, or not? Sound off in the Comments section below!
