Christina Aguilera makes me angry.

I can't stand Christina Aguilera.  Cannot.  Stand.  Her.

Yes, this probably makes me mean.  But I can't help it.  I'm sure if she met me, she'd dislike me, too.

I have many reasons for my annoyance with Xtina (as if her re-creation of her name wasn't enough).  Her smug attitude on "The Voice" just cemented all of them.  She's constantly smirking.  She has a fancy fan with her at all times.  I'm convinced that she's rude to anyone she feels can actually sing.  I think she believes she's the most talented person in the entire universe.  I think she'd challenge God Himself to a sing-off, and then refuse to believe she had lost.

But honestly, I've disliked her since she was a 12-year-old(ish) kid on "MMC."  

Did I have a real reason back then?  Nope.  I just didn't like her.  There was something about her that made me cringe.

My theory is that we each have one celebrity we dislike for real or unexplained reasons, and we get weirdly, passionately mad about them when they're on TV or in a movie.  

My sister despises Hilary Swank.  She says it started with "The Next Karate Kid," (which, yes, was really awful), but her irritation with Ms. Swank has lasted for about 15 years. "She's just...ugh," Holly Jo told me the last time I was at her house.

My best friend Ashleigh feels violent about Joseph Gordon Levitt.  Every time he shows up in a show or in a movie, she makes a face and says "I would like to punch that guy."  Why?  No real reason.  She just doesn't like his face.  Or speech pattern.  Or dance moves.  Or speaking voice. (I actually think he's pretty cute.)

Donny Osmond makes my dad angry.  Literally angry.  Why?  Dad says it's partly because he just cries too much for a man.  Whenever Dad and I are watching TV and Donny O. shows up, Dad turns to me and says "Just wait.  He'll start crying in a second."  And he usually does.

Am I right about this?  What celebrity do you dislike?  Do you have a reason?

This is hilarious. I'm not crazy about Christina either. Did you see her performance on the AMA's? YIKES is what I have to say. YIKES!

I can't think of who my disliked celebrity but you mentioning your dad's made me think of mine. My dad can't stand Whoopie Goldberg and Jason can't stand Angelina Jolie. He says she probably has diseases. ha!

I didn't see the AMAs, and I'm actually glad, because I probably would have been enraged by whatever she sang/wore/did.

I laughed out loud when I read that your dad can't stand Whoopi Goldberg. I mean, she doesn't have eyebrows. That's always driven me nuts. And I think Angelina needs to eat. Pronto.

I'm sure there are more, but off the top of my head mine is Andie McDowell. I have no idea why. Her very face just bugs me.

Amanda said...

Haha! That's the first Andie McDowell diss I've heard.

I think my theory's right. There's one for everybody.
