Christina Aguilera was under plenty of public scrutiny last fall after showing off a fuller figure.

And if you have a problem with it, change the channel,” she said. “She’s growing up in front of the entire world, and maybe she’s not so happy with the things that she did in her career when she was younger and she wants to be free. So let her do what she wants!” Andrew H.

The “Applause” singer was equally complimentary of Aguilera, with whom she was rumored to have a feud after her own career launched in 2008. When asked by a viewer to share her opinion of the “Your Body” singer, 32, Gaga only had nice things to say. “I’m a very big fan of Christina Aguilera,” she said. “From the very beginning of when my career started there was all this controversy about the two of us, and I always felt that it was very unfair to her.” PHOTOS: Lady Gaga’s craziest VMAs looks “The controversy was that people said that she released an album that was kind of chasing your sound,” Cohen said. “Is that what it was?” “All I know was that people were talking about Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga in the same sentence . . . and I was nobody,” Gaga explained of her status in the industry five years ago. “I just think it’s very unfair of anyone to pit another woman against another woman especially in the space of music when we are all just trying to be taken seriously at all .

12, 2013, 10:26 AM EST Lady Gaga has branded long-running rumours of a feud with Christina Aguilera total “nonsense” and urged fans to stop pitting female artists against each other. Aguilera was accused of copying her fellow singer’s more risque look and musical sound when she launched her 2010 album Bionic, and Gaga has now insisted the Candyman star was treated unfairly. The Poker Face hitmaker was asked about the feud rumours and the comparisons between the two women during an appearance on U.S. TV show Watch What Happens Live, and she insisted there was never any bad blood between the two singers. She told host Andy Cohen, “I’m a very big fan of Christina Aguilera… From the very beginning of when my career started there was all this controversy about the two of us, and I always felt that it was very unfair to her… I just think it’s very unfair of anyone to pit another woman against another woman especially in the space of music when we are all just trying to be taken seriously… as females because we’re not taken seriously as real musicians… “Christina is an incredible vocalist and an incredible artist. From me to her, I’m so sorry for anything that anyone ever said to her because of my existence. I hope that she never felt (bad) about it because when I was 15, I was singing (Aguilera’s song) I Turn to You at the top of my lungs trying to hit all her notes. So she was an inspiration to me to have a wider vocal range, and I just think it’s all total nonsense the way that they do that.” Popular Searches

The 32-year-old singer looked tan and rested in a clingy pink frock as she struck poses on the red carpet, her long blonde hair down in loose waves. A source tells Us that Aguilera has managed her slim-down with a combination of healthy eating and working out. “It’s more of a mind-body thing for her,” a source previously told Us of Aguilera’s commitment to shedding the pounds. “She believes in exercise that she enjoys, doing strength work as opposed to intense cardio.” Christina Aguilera was under plenty of public scrutiny last fall after showing off a fuller figure.

Of course I have her back and of course I defend her.”
