The Voice: Was Christina Aguilera’s Complaint About Tony Lucca’s Song Choice Hypocritical?

May 08, 2012 09:59 AM by Shayla Perry

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!

    That was a poor choice. To sing that type of song when there are thousands of songs available that do not offend women. And Adam Levines’ explanation is not acceptable. To question whether or not Christina Aguilera had a right to voice her opinion because of the way she dresses is stupid. She has a right to dress the way she wants and the way she dresses in not offensive it is just not complimentary; there is a difference.

    Thanks for your comment! I agree that Christina has the right to say what she wants, but just as the song may have been a “poor choice” and there were many others that he could’ve done, I think the same can be said about Aguilera’s wardrobe; which was the point of the comparison. Considering the setting — a family(ish) singing competition — both could be seen as equally inappropriate choices.

    Christina has truly been a “b” this whole season towards Tony and I felt her comment was just another attempt to rip him down.

    Christina is so rude when it comes to Tony. Texting while he is saying ‘Thank You’ She dresses with her fake boobs falling out of her dress every week. I see how sick people are of her out to get him and are voting for Tony just to spite her. That is too bad as he is not the best singer but her distane may end up backfiring for everyone else.

    @Murras, I fail to see your logic. So, it’s ok for Aguilera to dress inappropriate but it’s not ok for Lucca to sing a song that contains the b- word which he did not even sing. Over the years, Aguilera can show all the T&A she wants but heavens no, no one must say the b-word. That is BS! Lord knows we all want our daughters to show some T&A.

    I think Christina has been a total B—- To Tony
    from the start….she continues to make a fool of her self….He certainly is a bigger and better person than she is…he’s thanking everyone and she is sitting there and could care less…he must have gotten the best of her at some point…

    I thought it disgusting of her to bring his child into the fued by calling the cute very obvious “little BOY” ..a girl. Really??? And she has no right to talk derogatory! after the “Dirty” video! What did Adam sleep with her and never call her again or something???Nahhh, I don’t thin k he would go into them territories! She is a nasty, snobby bitch!

    What I found most distasteful and offensive: Christina had the audacity to say in front of his wife, children, and millions of viewers, “He is not a real man.” To add insult to injury, this poorly dressed slut said it twice!
