Christina Aguilera Feuds With Adam Levine

Things got heated on The Voice when Christina Aguilera criticized Tony Lucca's choice of song -- a choice some say was directed straight at his former Mickey Mouse Club costar.

Christina Aguilera The Voice

Tony Lucca tore up The Voice on Monday night with an awesomely bluesy version of Jay-Z's hit "99 Problems," but his apparent mortal enemy Christina Aguilera was guzzling haterade again and tore him to shreds over what she called disrespectful lyrics.

The words of the song include "I got 99 problems but a b**** ain't one" -- along with other fun and colorful slams -- and Aguilera, who has been especially hard on her former Mickey Mouse Club costar all season long, was not a fan.

"Your beautiful wife and your daughter and family are here tonight and I just thought, you know, the lyrical connotation was a little derogatory towards women," she said.

"It's called a metaphor," Lucca's mentor Adam Levine snapped. "We're not referring to women. We're referring to everything."

If true, it's a big stretch -- and on-set sources say the song choice was actually a slam sent in Aguilera's direction.

“Adam and Tony wanted to call Christina out as a b**** but make it clear she's not a problem for Tony," an insider told RadarOnline. "It was completely aimed at her. It was Adam’s idea, but Tony absolutely loved it."

That is totally LOL-worthy if true, and so is the fact that Aguilera, who didn't even bother to wear pants on last week's show, is talking about respect for women. One person who agrees is Lucca's friend and sometimes touring partner, fellow musician Ernie Halter.

"What the hell does a Dirrty pantless tiara wearing @TheRealXtina know about being respectful to women??" Halter wrote on Twitter, later posting a screen shot of the judge texting while Lucca was trying to thank her, Levine and Cee-Lo for their guidance.

Christina Aguilera Lyrics from Keeps Getting Better - "Some days I'm a super " Christina Aguilera Lyrics from Vanity - "Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the flyest of all?" She also had no problem attending the Jay-Z concert, the artist who originally performed the song. As far as the Hugo point, at no point did Tony Lucca or Adam Levine claimed to be responsible for the arrangement of the song that was written by Jay-Z or even commented on it... I originally became a fan of this show, because I thought it seemed much more positive than American Idol, but Christina has ruined it for me... Not only is she unjustly negative during Tony Lucca performances, she takes every opportunity to give backhanded digs (Last week during Kristina Parker's and this week during Chris Mann's).

i hate the way she bashes tony intentionally ...she is really rude to him in the entire is clear that it not his talent that's bothering her but something personal for sure...

As a young performer I am offended that Christina would completely insult another artist and just do nothing but trash him and hand out backhanded compliments. Like Adam said, it's a metaphor, look it up Christina! The same woman that shot the video for her song "dirrty" (intentionally spelled wrong by the artist herself) is talking about exploiting and being derogatory. I've completely lost any sort of respect for her

FYI, that cover of the song is NOT his original work - Tony Lucca covered another artist's cover of the song - Hugo! Maybe I missed it, but not giving credit to the artist you're covering + not clarifying when the blogosphere is giving you credit for it is some shady biz

Tony is NOT overrated and HE DEFNITELY WASN'T DISREPECTFUL! Geez people. She's being the , texting while he thanking ALL of them? I can't imagine living with her, she is the rudest, fakest thing I've come across in awhile. Yes, she CAN sing - but the others 'parts' of that package stink and ruins the voice. We love that show, but if her attitude keeps up we'll stop watching it! I hope he wins*!!!!! No offense Chris Mann, (all of ya'll are good) but it would be poetic justice
