‘The Voice’ Secrets Exposed — From Christina Aguilera’s Diva Demands To Blake Shelton And Gwen Stefani’s Secret Hook-Ups
For Season 11 of The Voice, things are going to be shaken up as the drama on the show has come to a tipping point.
Rumors about trouble in the judges’ camp began to swirl as Christina Aguilera became jealous that Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were receiving all the attention. According to OK! Magazine, Christina became even more enraged when the producers of the show offered Blake and Gwen money to keep their relationship on while cameras were rolling on the show, with “huge bonuses for exclusives, such as on-air duets, engagements, etc.”
The report stated the Christina’s anger spilled over off camera when she dissed her behind the scenes. “She said that Gwen is ‘not vocally talented’ and would not be on the show at all anymore if it was not for her relationship with Blake,” the insider said.Ok! Magazine also reports that Christina is now quitting the show and has already been replaced by none other than Miley Cyrus! The shake-up also includes an exit by singer/producer Pharrell Williams. As for Pharrell, he will be replaced by a former mentor on the show, Alicia Keys, which means the judging panel will consist of Blake, Miley, Alicia, and Adam Levine.
But just because Christina and Pharrell are leaving the show, doesn’t mean the drama is leaving with them. While Gwen has hit it off with Blake from day one, her relationship with Levine isn’t so great.
“He’s offensive to me sometimes,” she said about the face of Maroon 5. “He is so inappropriate. And I have been in a band [with all boys] for my whole life — I know inappropriate!”
“He’s just on another level,” she continued. “Adam has raised the bar for me. He has gone places that my band hasn’t gone. He’s bad. Whatever version of this show you see at home, I get the X-rated version.”
But the drama doesn’t stop there! An insider also revealed that some of Gwen’s castmates aren’t very fond of her. “[She] loves to talk with people about their problems…but then she’ll tell the next person their secrets,” an insider revealed. Her blabbermouth behavior has earned her a bad rep and her fellow judges “have learned not to trust her.”However, the ladies on The Voice weren’t the only divas. Apparently Pharell is just as demanding! “It takes him hours to get ready,” a source revealed. “There have been times when he’s sent his stylist out to get a different shirt, which has set production back” and “if things don’t go as planned, he loses his temper.”
Pharrell also joins Christina in being jealous of Blake and constantly gets into feuds with him. “Pharrell is shocked that Blake can get away with any joke he wants because of his country twang,” an insider said. “He’s really gotten under Pharrell’s skin — to the point where Pharrell has asked to change chairs, so he doesn’t have to sit next to Blake!”
But perhaps there are legit reasons for Christina and Pharrell’s reported beef with Blake and Gwen. After all, it was the show that essentially created the atmosphere for Blake and Gwen to start a romantic relationship. The country star also has Gwen laughing at his corny jokes, states Metro, something the other judges just don’t understand.Of course, there’s also the subtle on-screen flirting between the two love birds and Blake’s compliments and comments which could be taken as a little biased. For example, Blake said during the show that, “Team Gwen overall is whooping the crap out of Team Adam.”
But despite all the reports about all the drama and all the shaking up, that’s taking place on the show, The Wrap spoke to another person close to the show who said, “Everyone in The Voice family has the potential to be back in the chair in the spring.”
We’ll take that with a grain of salt.
