The truth about Christina Aguilera and Eminem’s feud

Musically, Eminem and Christina Aguilera are polar opposites. One is a powerhouse singer while the other is a legendary rapper. That being said, they have one thing in common: their history of feuding with celebrities.

Let’s start with Aguilera. The “Genie In A Bottle” hitmaker may talk about female empowerment in her songs, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t rubbed other women the wrong way. In the early 2000s, Aguilera had beef with Kelly Osbourne. As explained in an interview, the reality star revealed that Aguilera had kicked in her door and called her a “fat b***h” when they both happened to be recording music in the same building. Osbourne responded and “spit on her car”. In 2011, Avril Lavigne shared at the BRITs aftershow party that she once went to say hello to Aguilera and received a cold reply, insisting she was “really mean”.

On to Eminem. It’s well documented over the years that he had a long-running feud with Mariah Carey. As noted by BroBible, it all started when Eminem said the couple started dating in 2001. Carey completely denied these claims, leading to Eminem getting angry and dissing the singer in a number of his songs. Not only did Carey claps back into her own songs, but her ex-husband, Nick Cannon, also got involved by replying to Eminem in a now-deleted blog post (via MTV).

Considering all of this, it’s no surprise that Xtina and Slim Shady have also fought each other.

Christina Aguilera and Eminem shared their feelings in their songs

Christina Aguilera and Eminem first clashed in the late ’90s. During Aguilera’s MTV special What A Girl Wants, she chose Eminem’s video for “My Name Is” and initially praised the rapper. However, she quickly made it onto his bad books when she revealed to the world that he was married to his longtime partner Kim. “She heard a rumor, she didn’t know if I was married or not,” Eminem later replied in an interview.

On his 2000 global hit “The Real Slim Shady,” Eminem didn’t take Aguilera lightly, rapping, “Little b***h got me blasting on MTV” / Yeah, he’s cute, but I think he’s married to Kim, hee-hee.'” During the same verse, Eminem went on to smack the singer, “I should download her audio to MP3 / and show the whole world how you gave Eminem VD!” Aguilera was obvious not pleased and immediately shadowed the rapper at the MTV Video Music Awards the same year his name took the stage. However, Eminem didn’t seem too phased as he was spotted laughing in the audience.

In 2002, Aguilera voiced her own thoughts in her song “Can’t Hold Us Down” with Lil’ Kim. “Should I not have an opinion? Should I be silent just because I’m a woman? Call me ***h because I speak what’s on my mind. Guess it’s easier for you to swallow when I’m sit down and smile,” she sang during the opening verse.

Eminem continues to reference Christina Aguilera in his songs

By 2002, it seemed like Eminem and Christina Aguilera squashed their beef. At the MTV Video Music Awards, Aguilera presented Eminem with the award for Best Male Video and everything seemed to be going well between the two. With that in mind, he referenced her again in his 2018 song “Kick-Off.” “F**k Christina with a plastic spoon,” he rapped, “because her double G cups are huge, huge!”

While the two haven’t reignited their feud, Aguilera had something to say about Eminem in her TV interview for Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. When asked what she thought about her name still being on his lips, Aguilera insisted it was “really thirsty” of him and had no idea why she was mentioned. “That’s really in the past and, you know, it was thirsty then, it’s thirsty now,” she continued. “It’s not pretty chasing anyone, especially a woman in this business, and now what we’re looking at and seeing is coming to the fore, it’s just getting a new job.”
