Manson is taking more shots at pop stars in her diary at Garbage's official
site, saying "Watched a brief clip of a re-run on the MTV Video Awards
and felt horrid. It sort of reminded me of being back at my high school
end-of-term party. All the pretty, popular girls (Christina Aguilera, Jennifer
Lopez et al) being booed but wooed by the popular naughty boys (Fred Durst,
D'Angelo et al.) while all the smart or ugly girls, boy geeks and misfits
were either not invited or were left standing solo. It made me depressed.

other. It's so phony and smug."

Christina and I totally respect them as artist and entertainers. I think

that is what happens in this business."

at the Video Music Awards, "You wish you got some nookie from it, He got
no nookie. That did not happen, okay? I just want to clear the table right
there, and the thing with Carson too. Eminem's whole song did not happen,
okay? It just didn't, but it's some really crazy stuff that people want
to insinuate and people want to say, and it is hurtful." Among her other
MTV Diary highlights, she shared a car ride with boyfriend Jorge while

Aguilera made Mark Feehily of the band move from his chair at a bar, because,
as Filan put it, "'Cos she was Christina and he was nothing. When you’ve
got ignorance at that level, we don’t tolerate it."

Simpson is putting both Britney and Christina on blast, according to today's
report from Entertaindom.com. Says Simpson of Aguilera, "Christina and
I talk, and I think she's a great person underneath the facade. She is
very big right now; she definitely knows she has sold eight million records
and I don't really like that in people. I don't think you should act like
that. I don't think you should block the halls off when you want to walk
down the hall. It's important to stay normal, but people lose their heads
in this business. They lose who they are as people. I knew Christina before
her stuff came out and she's a great girl, but -- boom! -- she hit so fast
and some people just can't handle it." [well if they talk, I'd love to
be a fly on the wall the next time the two meet and discuss this.]

Kearns is revealing more info on Fausto, saying on her message board yesterday,
"I'm also quite impressed with the status of things with her natural father,
Fausto. I actually have seen a tremendous amount of healing take place,
which is a blessing in itself. He's become very supportive, has made major
amends and is quite supportive of her being open with everything in order
to help those still in such a situation. Very few abusers come to recognize,
admit the gravity of their mistakes and then have the courage to go on
to rectify things as he's done--particularly when they've got the entire
world watching. That takes a LOT of work. I'm suprised and feel I must
hand it to him."

What do you want? I don't want to make music like her. I can't stand that
kind of music. People were like, 'What'd you do that for?' What do you
think I did that for? It's obvious, isn't it? You know what I mean? So
that's the deal. Everybody saying that was wishing they were doing that

Burr has some good things to say about Christina despite initial thoughts
that she may be cashing in on the Latin music bandwagon. He admits, "The
kid's got talent. I think that, yes, if one wanted to be a cynic, they
could say she was out to make money strictly off the bandwagon. But she's
got so much versatility, power, soul and flavor, she could be singing in
French and have the same appeal. I think this a great record." For the

will make the most difference--help the most. What inspired it? Well, she
witnessed my ex husband being quite abusive--emotionally and physically--to
me and grew up determined that, if God blessed her with her dream of fame,
she'd use it somehow to help people in that situation."
