CHRISTINA AGUILERA IN NOVEMBER REDBOOK

Christina Aguilera



This month, power vocalist and pop superstar Christina Aguilera stars on the November cover of REDBOOK. In the issue, the coach of NBC’s smash hit, The Voice, opens up about her co-stars on the reality singing competition, her decision to leave last season and her new workout philosophy.



Why she left The Voice:


I needed to decompress, wind down the clock and just breathe. I needed to find out who I am outside of that red chair.



On why working out is not her priority:


If I have to choose between working out and spending time with my son after a hard day, it’s not even a question.



On how she looks at her co-stars on The Voice as family:


I know these guys so well, they really are like my brothers, no joke. There’s a 12 year-old-boy in me who loves to come out and play with them.

THE SUPERBOWL AND CHRISTINA AGUILERA



Christina Aguilera


BOWL DELIGHTS – I watched the Super Bowl last night and was more than a bit under whelmed by their choice of musical entertainment; along with most of America it appears from today’s reports. The national anthem is one tough song to sing; years ago I watched from the stage as one of the then new-teen idols began to sing it. She did a terrific job … but, admitted to me as she walked off the stage … it was a stretch. Christina Aguilera attributed her lyric-mishap to one of nerves, but really, everyone noticed it. What with her debacle of the movie Burlesque; an album that was DOA on arrival; and, her recent divorce, it’s been a tough year for her. I wish her all the best. The Black Eyed Peas were a visual treat, but when they started to sing and Ferqie’s microphone wasn't functioning; it proved to be a bad sign of things to come. Not even a cameo appearance by Usher ("OMG") and Slash from Gun N' Roses-fame (performing "Sweet Child O' Mine") could help. Listen, it’s a tough spot: Do you go with a legacy act like last year with The Who, or do you buck up and go with a seemingly hot-group-from today? Tough spot either way; but, to me, this year’s performances fell totally flat.

Christian Bale


THE FIGHTER – Finally caught this movie this weekend and yes, Christian Bale will win for Best Supporting Actor. He becomes the character he’s playing; a uniquely awesome performance. Also just terrific in the movie is Amy Adams and Melissa Leo; both truly superlative. Also, keep an ear out for some terrific songs in the soundtrack, including one of my all-time favorites from Traffic; 1972’s “Rock And Roll Stew,” sung by Jim Capaldi, and written by Rich Grech and Jim Gordon. Classic rock and roll track!

****



Christopher Nolan


WRITERS ROCK – This weekend was the WGA Awards (Writing Guild) and the big winners were The Social Network; Inception; and, Mad Men. It’s interesting to note that these three choices have been somewhat overlooked during this year’s awards season; Aaron Sorkin, the writer for The Social Network, also did TV’s The West Wing and Sports Night, and is one brilliant and prolific writer. In watching his shows, it’s often a neck-and-neck race between the acting and the writing as to which is better. Christopher Nolan, as we noted in last week’s column is another huge new presence in the directing field (witness Batman Begins; Memento; The Dark Knight; and, the overlooked, but brilliant The Prestige), but, he also excels at writing. Re-working the myth of Batman was most artfully done; and, totally believable. And, what can you say about Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men … other than that no show since The Sopranos has had as much impact on TV; and, cable at that. It’s hard to believe that we're still eagerly waiting the next season. Sure, Weiner reportedly borders on being a megalomaniac; firing writers when they win awards and he doesn't; keeping contract negotiations on hold till the last minute so they may ultimately bend is way, but, whatever, the show is a massive, massive hit. Let’s face it; the show put cable-net AMC on the map. If it ain’t on the page … it’s ain’t on the stage!

Colin Quinn And Pat Cooper


SHORT TAKES: Comedian/writer Pat Cooper appeared last week at the 92Y where he was interviewed by Colin Quinn, in conjunction with his new book How Dare You Say How Dare Me (Square One Publishers). Quinn, so hot right now with his one-man show on Broadway (Long Short Story) was the perfect choice to host the event. Cooper who’s become one legendary comic, dished in his book on many of his behind-the-scenes stories and with a foreword by Jerry Lewis, of all people, is a very good and funny read. I especially liked the chapter wherein the author regales us with his hilarious appearance in March of 1981, when he appeared on NBC’s Coast to Coast show with Tom Snyder. Cooper basically outed many of the celebrities he had worked; and, their problems with comedians. It was unabashedly funny … and, spot on perfect! Also, his routine on noveau-cuisine Italian foods called Gourmet Sucks is killer stuff too. He guested on Howard Stern recently and he and the host carried on terrifically; Howard should have back immediately. A good read this one ... The gremlins must have been at work when photographer's Eva Mueller web-site went missing. Check her out here....

Barbara Walters



PALM HANGS BARBARA WALTERS – After a recent query by Cindy Adams as to why there was no caricature of Barbara Walters on their hallowed walls … now, there is! According to Palm EVP Bruce Bozzi, Jr., “It’s up … and, it’s terrific. Actually one of the best ones we've ever done.” The family-run chain is currently celebrating their 85th anniversary remains a must-see attraction and eatery in NYC. Check out Palm West with GM Alex Hasbany. Congrats!

Last night, superstar Christina Aguilera celebrated the release of her new album, Bionic, at NYC hotspot AVENUE. She wore Stephen Webster jewelry and the rings on her right hand spelled out “XTINA” (visible on ‘DJ’ pic attached). Guests included Kim Kardashian, Serena Williams and Selita Ebanks. DJ Jeffrey Tonnesen and DJ Vice kept the crowd going with a mash up of songs that included some music from Christina’s new album. Kim, Serena and Selita all went upstairs to AVENUE’s mezzanine to congratulate Christina and all the girls ended up sitting with Christina at her banquette. Kim and Christina were inseparable and chatted for a good part of the evening. BFF alert? They went wild and dance to Miike Snow’s “Animal.” Christina’s supportive husband Jordan was by her the entire night. They looked very happy.

Christina Aguilera And Nicole Richie


Christina Aguilera and Nicole Richie helped Las Vegas ring in 2010 at TAO and LAVO at the Venetian and Palazzo Hotels. Aguilera arrived at the red carpet looking stunning in a Moschino dress with jewels by Stephen Webster and chatted about how excited she is for the New Year with her album dropping in March and her movie Burlesque premiering in November. Aguilera, who was joined by husband Jordan Bratman, her sister Rachel and all of her dancers, raved about the gorgeous penthouse suite at The Venetian where they were staying, “'The Venetian is amazing and we've had an awesome time,” she shared. The group dined in TAO’s private dining room before heading upstairs to a sky box in the nightclub. The pop star was so excited to lead the packed club in the countdown to 2010 that she took to the stage a few minutes early much to delight of the crowd. After pronouncing "Happy New Year" she left the stage and gave her husband a special kiss before heading back to the skybox to enjoy the rest of the evening. At LAVO Nicole Richie and beau Joel Madden were on hand to celebrate with revelers at The Palazzo. Richie, who has a jewelry collection and is launching clothing and shoe lines, wore a gold low backed dress of her own design – a custom piece from her collection Winter Kate. The mother of two and burgeoning poker fan was excited to come to Vegas, but the couple didn’t want to be away from their kids for too long so they made the trip very quick. They flew in on Thursday and spent the day in the luxurious Sienna suite at The Palazzo, enjoying cupcakes from Sweet Surrender as well as an Italian feast in the private dining room at LAVO. As for New Year's Resolutions Nicole aims to be the best version of herself and "grow gracefully." Richie took to the catwalk at LAVO two minutes before midnight and turned her own camera on the crowd, snapping shots to post on Twitter. After counting down the last seconds of 2009 she joined Madden in the DJ booth as he spun a special set for the packed nightclub. The pair then headed back to the kids in Southern California right after Madden finished his DJ set at LAVO. Ryan Gosling, who was spotted chatting with Jaime Murray from the Showtime hit Dexter, a very single Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley, model Devon Aoki and Wilmer Valderrama of That 70’s Show fame and Michael Steger from the CW’s 90210 along his wife Brandee Tucker were all spotted ringing in 2010 at LAVO. Valderrama got on the microphone at LAVO, entertaining the crowd while doing shots of Patron, while Gosling, Murray, Whibley and Aoki all headed to TAO after 2 am to finish their New Year’s celebration.
