It’s Always Exciting When A Feud Arises in Pop Music
Slightly less dramatic and dangerous than a West Coast vs. East Coast rap feud, it seems Christina Aguilera and Paris Hilton’s slimy producer, Scott Storch, are on the outs with each other. Partway through his work on Aguilera’s most recent album, “Back to Basics,” Storch dropped out of the project citing the fact that she wouldn’t send a private plane to fetch him as one of his laundry list of reasons for quitting. The New York Daily News gives more details:
On her new track, the evocatively named “F.U.S.S.,” Christina sings: “I thought I knew who you were, I see now you were a lesson to learn.” And then: “This song is for you to remind you / that I moved on … looks like I didn’t need you.” Storch bristles in response: “It’s pretty pathetic that she would do a song like this.” The producer told In Touch magazine: “I worked on half of her last CD and sold her millions of copies. Obviously, she cares more than I do that I didn’t do this album. “But I can’t blame her, with an album full of fillers, oversinging and lame Vegas-like cabaret music.” Storch adds: “You should fire your management for letting me slip through your fingers.”
I’m not a particularly huge X-tina fan, but Storch just seems so gross that I hope her album sells through the roof. Although, clearly he is talented if he managed to make Paris Hilton sound somewhat like a human being on her album. Either way, he’s nasty.
Old-school? Her? [LA Times]
