Eminem revealed why he dissed Christina Aguilera, pointing out that she started their feud after making comments about his marriage on TV.
Explaining how it all started, Eminem said he was initially flattered when Aguilera choose one of his songs on her MTV special, What a Girl Wants, but he soon became annoyed.
You can see his take on how it unfolded here:
After choosing his song ‘My Name Is’ on the special, Aguilera said: “I heard he’s married now… the girl that he talks about killing on his record, actually.”
The singer then went on to speak out against domestic abuse, urging her fans to never let a man disrespect them – but her comments didn’t go down well with the rapper.
Recalling the incident, Eminem said: “She picked one of my videos. I was like, ‘that’s cool she picked my video’.”
He went on: “And then she said, ‘yeah, doesn’t he have a song about killing his baby’s mother? And I always tell my friends, if you’re against domestic violence, you know, I’m so against domestic violence and if you’re in an abusive relationship…’
“And I was, like, why did she just pick my video if she’s picking it apart? I would rather have had her just say nothing about me.
“She heard a rumour, she didn’t know if i was married or not – she just heard a rumour and then put me on blast.
“But I figured, well, f**k it, since she did that – you said something about me, I’m going to voice some rumours that I heard about you.”
Eminem directly addressed the comments on his song ‘The Real Slim Shady’, which includes the lyrics: “Little b***h put me on blast on MTV” / “Yeah he’s cute but I think he’s married to Kim.”
And he didn’t stop there – two years later, he released the track ‘Off the Wall’ with Redman in which he called out Aguilera, rapping: “Causing terror to Christina Aguilera” / “When I grab her by the hair and drag her across the Sahara.”
In 2019, Aguilera addressed the feud saying it wasn’t ‘nice’ of the rapper to go after her.
Appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, she said: “That’s really in the past and, you know, it was thirsty then, it’s thirsty now. ”
It’s not nice to go after anybody, especially a female in this business, and now, what we’re looking at and seeing come to the forefront, it’s just, get a new gig. Have something else to talk about.”
Christina Aguilera ‘unfollows’ Britney Spears in response to ‘fat-shaming’ Instagram post
Fans have noticed that Christina Aguilera no longer follows Britney Spears after her ‘fat shaming’ Instagram post, which has been the subject of heavy criticism this week.
The controversy started on Monday, 12 September, when the ‘Toxic’ singer shared a quote from comedian Rodney Dangerfield which reads: “I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.”
What has that got to do with Christina? Well, underneath the image Britney wrote: “I wish I could have chosen the nannies for my children … my dancers …
“I mean if I had Christina Aguilera’s dancers I would have looked extremely small… I mean why not talk about it??”
She continued: “Don’t you think my confidence would have been a bit better if I could choose where I lived, ate, whom I called on the phone, dated and who was on stage with me!!!
“It’s hard sometimes now I see how much of my womanhood was stripped away at that time and every person sat back and didn’t say a thing!!!
“Anyways … I will be here talking bout things people NEVER talked about!!!”
Although it appears Britney may have been talking about the strict rules she was made to follow under her 13-year-long conservatorship, many fans slammed the star while accusing her of ‘fat shaming’.
“No, not the fat shaming,” wrote one, while another said, “Oof. Love Britt – but this was in bad taste. Body shaming to make yourself feel better is not where it’s at.”
“What did Christina’s dancers ever do to deserve this,” added a third.
Although Christina is yet to speak about the post, Page Six pointed out that the ‘Beautiful’ singer has unfollowed Britney on Instagram.
This is despite the fact that she kept up with Spears’ social media activity and supported her while she was going through her conservatorship battle.
Plenty of fans also noticed that Britney was no longer in the group of 140 Insta accounts Christina follows, with one writing: “Amen. Christina Aguilera finally unfollows Britney Spears.”
It’s currently unclear at what point Christina hit the unfollow button, but many have suggested it came after the recent post.
UNILAD has contacted reps for Christina and Britney for comment.

Eminem Proves That Something Does Actually Rhyme With Orange
If anyone in the world was going to find a way to make orange rhyme with something, it would of course be Eminem.
What does actually rhyme with orange, I hear you ask? Morange? Porange? Lorange? Well, the word wizard that is Eminem has worked out an innovative way to make it work.
While the real Slim Shady noted that nothing is going to rhyme with orange perfectly, he told Anderson Cooper that if you enunciate the word, you’re able to make it (almost) rhyme with other things.
Check it out:
The word orange doesn’t rhyme with anything, and it kind of pisses me off because I can think of a lot of things that rhyme with orange. If you’re taking the word at face value, and you just say ‘orange’, nothing is going to rhyme with it exactly.
If you enunciate it and make it more than one syllable, or-ange, you can say, like, I put my or-ange, four inch, door hinge in storage and ate por-idge with George.
‘You just kind of have to figure out the science of breaking down words’, he added.
Mind blown? Mine too.
TikToker @siphers_ shared a snippet of Eminem’s 2010 interview with Cooper on the video sharing platform, and I’m not alone in being impressed by the rapper’s logic.
One person commented on the video, which has racked up almost three million views, ‘This is why he is the greatest rapper of all time.’ Meanwhile, someone else said, ‘He’s so smart. His story is amazing. He deserves a lot of respect’.
