Yikes! One of our favorite pop superstars, [lastfm]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm], has been forced to take on private gigs like bar mitzvahs and weddings to make ends meet.
A source tells Now Magazine, “Christina’s performing at Bar Mitzvahs and weddings. She wanted to charge £1.3 million [about $2 million] a time but her hubby Jordan Bratman convinced her to lower it to £157,000 [$244,000] so she’ll get more gigs.”
The 29-year-old singer is going through a pretty rough year. Her new album Bionic was critically panned and she cancelled her U.S. tour after abysmally low ticket sales.
She’s also been taking a lot of flack for appearing to imitate [lastfm]Lady Gaga’s[/lastfm] style . Christina responded, “This is not the first time I have been unfairly pitted against another female artist, but it will be the last time I comment on the matter.”
Ouch! So how can [lastfm]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] reinvent herself? We can only hope her upcoming film, “Burlesque,” does well! Check out the trailer below:
