Christina Aguilera Taken Into Custody For Public Intoxication

Oh, Christina Aguilera—what a time you’ve been having these past 12 months. Adding to the 30-year-old singer’s woes—which include a flop album, divorce, poorly-reviewed movie and sketchy Super Bowl performance—is the report by TMZ that she was taken into police custody with boyfriend Matthew Rutler when he was pulled over by cops in West Hollywood and arrested for a misdemeanor DUI.

According to TMZ, the po-po allegedly determined that Xtina was “extremely intoxicated” and unable to care for herself, so they dragged her in, too. The pair were said to be pulled over around 2:45 a.m. this morning for Rutler’s erratic driving.

Maybe Aguilera really should take that judging gig on upcoming NBC reality singing competition The Voice—it could be the one bright spot in her dismal past year. Then again, if the show tanks while pop contemporaries Britney Spears and Lady Gaga have new albums out, it could signal more career headaches for the soulful singer.

    Did AOL buy Idolator cause the posts lately have “the AOL way” written all over them

    I feel so bad for her having so much talent and regularly being over shadow by talentless gimmicks, the media has done a tremendous job of knocking her down.

    I hope she can get herself together she’s too strong to end up coked out like Lindsay or brain dead like Britney

      Hey Brandon, no such purchase has occurred! Not sure what you mean by “the AOL way,” but I was just pointing out that she has had a pretty much bad year, and it could go either way if she takes that judging gig.

    Another pathetic delusional monster. Is this Perez Hilton (dot) com? BTW Burlesque sales were great (in reference to your other article).

    Don’t blame Aguilera, blame Rutler.
