The Dredge: Christina Aguilera never made 'fat girl' comments

We get our hands mucky with the best of the morning’s dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, the Daily Edge digs through the celebrity dirt to bring you the best of it. Here’s The Dredge…

What’s all this then? Christina Aguilera‘s rep has hit back at reports that she gave quotes in an interview about being a ‘fat girl now’and telling record execs to deal with it.

Billboard had reported that the singer had discussed her weight in a recent interview to accompany their cover story, but it seems now that the quotes came from this blog. (Entertainment Weekly)

Presenter and Writer Conor Behan has set the record straight on his blog, tackling two recent stories about Lady Gaga and Aguilera’s weight gain, pointing out how quickly the story gathered pace. Worth a read. (Platinum Jones)

In fact, here at The Dredge we fell for it too. Mea culpa.
