What do Justin Bieber and The Wanted have in common — besides being crush-worthy young singers, of course? They both have been snubbed by Christina Aguilera on "The Voice." The same night the blonde made a face when Bieber gave her a hug (after she coldly offered a handshake) during his appearance on the NBC singing competition to preview his "Boyfriend" video, the Irish boyband also came on the show to perform. And they were greeted with a similar chill. "She was a total b---h," Tom Parker said during radio station NOW FM's interview with the "Glad You Came" singers. "She just sat there and didn't speak to us. Wouldn't even look at us."
Parker is not alone in his opinion. His fellow bandmates echoed Aguilera's behavior, although not as harshly. "She was quite rude," agreed Siva Kaneswaran. "Who does that?" Added Max George, "She was a bit scary, to be honest." Two weeks before their "Voice" appearance, The Wanted also performed on "American Idol" and had a completely different experience with the sexy female judge on that show, Jennifer Lopez, who is arguably an even bigger superstar than Aguilera. In fact, George gave J.Lo a smooch on the cheek during their April 5 performance, which she seemed to enjoy. And during an afterparty following the show, she even granted his request for a photo and posed with her arm around the up-and-coming young singer. When asked to compare Lopez and Aguilera, George said, "J.Lo's hot, Christina's nothing special."
Aguilera's nasty attitude is nothing new. Kelly Osbourne has been very vocal that the "Fighter" singer, who has packed on the pounds in recent years, tormented her when she was heavier. "She called me fat for years," the slimmed-down "Fashion Police" star revealed last year. "I was never that fat."
After her Bieber diss, Aguilera claimed that she was merely suffering from a case of Bieber Fever … although euphoria, not rudeness, is usually a symptom.
