You know, whenever a woman in a position of power makes demands, she's labeled a "diva." Or worse. Christina Aguilera is allegedly "behaving like an idiot" on the set of The Voice. Or did, during a recent taping. According to a "source," who seems to be a grumpy audience member. "Christina didn't wave or say hi to the audience. She came out three minutes before the show started and appeared to be in a horrible mood," the source says. "She didn't crack a smile until Cee Lo Green reached out to high-five her. During commercial break, she had about six people working on her all dressed in black and red ‘Team Xtina' shirts, and one person had a bottle of water with a straw she held as Christina sipped. Later, Christina threw her Louboutins on her desk and ran out holding her bladder. Someone ran out to get her shoes in a tizzy and the judges all looked at each other trying to figure out where she went." For fuck's sake. The woman does not have to smile if she doesn't want to. And obviously she had to pee. Having a team of folks do hair and makeup touchups as you're being filmed for TV is par for the course. In conclusion, STFU. [Showbiz Spy]


By the way, Christina is an A-list star and true draw for the show, which is why she's being paid more than $225,000 an episode. Adam Levine, Blake Sheton and Cee-Lo Green are getting about $75,000 each. Also: When the show was being conceived and pitched, John Mayer was considered as a possible coach. [Hollywood Reporter]

A man named Dexter Isaac (who is currently serving a life sentence in prison) has admitted to being involved in the robbery of Tupac at a New York City recording studio in 1994. During said hold up, Tupac was shot five times. The rapper lived for two more years, then was shot to death in Las Vegas in 1996. Isaac does not say outright that he was the gunman, but he does say that he is trying to give Tupac's mom — and Biggie's mom — some closure. [All Hip Hop, read the statement here, NYDN]

Are you single? But you're 30. And girlfriends are so important. You can have a boyfriend or husband when you're 30 but you still need your girlfriends." [Showbiz Spy]

My guess is that Christina Aguilera is a woman who looks angry, if she's not smiling. Liv Tyler & Selma Blair have the same thing going on. (Me too) It's irritating to be told every time you walk around without a smile on your face that you look angry.
