Let's think of a few reasons why Christina Aguilera dissed Justin Bieber on The Voice this week. Is it because she's upset she didn't get invited to his "Call Me Maybe" dance party? Or maybe she's sore from all her workouts recently and didn't feel like having her aching back touched? Or, is it possible that Justin's just a cruel reminder of the fame, youth, and body she once had? Whatever the reason, she wasn't exactly warm when Bieber went down the line, saluting the judges. Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, and Blake Shelton all gave the 18-year-old pop star a heart-felt handshake, but Xtina? She was cold as ice. Brrrr.

Who knows if it was intentional or not -- Christina did have a big elimination decision to make and could've just been super focused on her team, and not on the Biebs.
That said, I don't know HOW you could ever be less than ecstatic when Justin's in your presence. That goddamn kid is amazing. The signing, the dancing, the smiling, the overall genuine merriment that little nugget brings to a room is incredible. I would say it's hard to ignore, but Christina kind of proved me wrong there. She ignored him, no sweat.
Maybe Justin will be inspired by the so-called diss and write a thinly-veiled song about how a cougar once ignored him in the wild. Even though Xtina's only 31, when you're 18 like Bieber, anyone in her 30s has got to be considered ancient. Especially since his mom is 36.
