Christina Aguilera had a few choice words of her own to say regarding the song choice of ‘The Voice’ finale contestant, Tony Lucca.
Lucca, one of the final four remaining in the singing competition has been known to have a small rift with his former mickey mouse club star, and it continued to shine through in Aguilera’s critique of his last song.
Performing a unique spin off of Jay-Z’s ’99 Problems’, Lucca made sure to remain silent for the word in question when the song states “I’ve got 99 problems, but a b*tch ain’t one.”
Leaving the “B” word out, Lucca thought he was safe in terms of offending anyone, however that was not the case.
After the performance, Christina had an unfavorable opinion of the song, saying:
“I thought you sounded great, I mean, you have a really cool voice, your beautiful wife, your daughter and your family are here tonight and I just thought the lyrical connotation was a little derogatory towards women.”
Tony Lucca’s coach, Adam Levine, quickly came to his defense asserting that “First of all just to clarify so you all know, the ‘(blank) ain’t one’, is life getting at you, things bringing you down. You know we’re not referring to women, we’re referring to everything.”
Levine’s feisty colleague bought no part of his metaphorical explanation, reiterating the part of the song that clearly states “if you’re having girl problems”, backing up her feeling that the song is only referring to women.
Do you feel the song ’99 Problems” is derogatory towards women?
