Christina Aguilera is said to be very upset — as are the folks at Billboard — over what both the singer and the magazine are saying are “fake quotes” (she was falsely quoted as saying that she got 'tired of being a skinny White girl') being attributed to the current Billboard cover story on Aguilera.
“Christina is very used to all kinds of phony rumors about herself, but when presumably reputable publications and websites claim they are running direct quotes from her that are totally made up — that truly flabbergasted her,” said one of Aguilera’s good friends Tuesday.
“First she was flabbergasted. Then she got very angry.”
The quotes do not appear in the story, and a second source with knowledge of the interview said the alleged remarks by Aguilera were not either “outtakes” or off-the-record remarks.
