Nowmagazine : Christina Aguilera was once the chart-topper who could boast that her concerts sold out in minutes, but these she's singing a different tune.
Her latest album Bionic's only sold 200,000 copies Stateside since its June release and she's been dubbed Christina Flopiera. Oh dear.
Bizarrely, the singer's blaming Lady Gaga - who last week admitted she still uses cocaine ‘a couple of times a year' - for her dwindling sales. ‘Christina thinks fans saying she's "Gaga lite" has thwarted her success,' an insider tells Now.
‘They've slammed her latest image as a poor imitation.' Now can reveal Christina's also been forced to accept private gigs after cancelling her summer tour due to low ticket sales.
‘Christina's performing at Bar Mitzvahs and weddings,' says a source. ‘She wanted to charge £1.3 million a time but her hubby Jordan Bratman convinced her to lower it to £157,000 so she'll get more gigs.
'It's embarrassing for someone once so successful to resort to this but blaming Gaga's just crazy!'
