Christina Aguilera started her career as a member of the 90s incarnation of The Mickey Mouse Club alongside Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Her first hit, “Reflection,” was on the soundtrack of the Disney film Mulan. But reports have surfaced that Aguilera threw a tantrum at “The Happiest Place On Earth,” even going so far as to calling a guy in a Mickey Mouse outfit an “a**hole”. According to TMZ, Aguilera and her entourage were at Disney’s California Adventure to celebrate her birthday. When Aguilera and her crew wanted to take a picture with Mickey Mouse, the mascot refused because he was taking a break.
Aguilera and her friends were told to wait, which triggered Aguilera’s meltdown. After calling the mascot an “a**hole,” she reportedly said, “Do you know who I am?” The poor mascot was ushered to a safe zone after Aguilera’s entourage hurled threats and expletives to the guy. Security was called, but Aguilera and her group were already gone when they arrived.
The media has reached out to Aguilera’s representatives, but her camp declined to comment on the incident. There’s also no sign of the trouble during the trip on Aguilera’s social media accounts, with her Instagram even containing a happy snapshot of her posse with the caption, “Fun birthday celebration at the happiest place on earth #disneyland.”
While the incident has yet to be proven, countless stories about Aguilera’s attitude problems have been made public. Recently, Valerie Bertinelli opened up about the bad blood between the two. Back in November, Bertinelli appeared in Watch What Happens Live to talk about the supposed feud between her and Aguilera.
According to Valerie, “I didn’t have a feud with her. I was a fan at that time a long time ago, and I went up to her cause she was at a Van Halen concert, and I said, ‘Oh my god, I think you’re a beautiful singer.'” She added, “She gave me the cold shoulder, and I thought, ‘B***h, I’m a fan. You can’t be nice to me?’ She might have gotten better. But I heard she hasn’t.”
Aguilera then responded to Bertinelli’s claims by posting a picture of herself in the studio on her Instagram with the caption, “In more important news…”, alluding to Valerie’s claims.
Christina Aguilera may have cemented her reputation of rubbing people the wrong way, and it seems Mickey Mouse is only the latest target.
