There's been a lot of talk about the way Christina Aguilera reacted to Justin Bieber when he tried to hug and kiss her on The Voice - a lot of viewers were shocked at the cold way she seemed to respond to the Biebs's greeting.
All across the internet, people dissected her every move - why did she offer her hand to him when he tried to hug her? Why did she have that death stare on her face right afterward? Christina has finally responded to all the criticism, claiming that she had just come down with a case of Bieber fever.
Here's what she tweeted about the incident: "Haha! The media loves spinning stories... Can't a girl have a little #BieberFever after getting kissed by the Biebs?" She also included a link to an Us Weekly story about her alleged "diss" with the tweet.
But there's an even more likely explanation for why Christina Aguilera was acting the way she did that had nothing to do with Justin Bieber at all - she was probably just emotional and stressed out about having to cut one of her team members on The Voice. Things did seem to be pretty tense on the set because of favorite Jesse Campbell's elimination. Christina's emotional state should be pretty obvious since she also had a good cry during the show.
Maybe Christina Aguilera didn't mention the decision she had to make in her tweet because she was still really torn up about it, opting instead to make a little joke about having Bieber fever. She probably also didn't want to bring it up because some fans of The Voice might have been quick to attack her for eliminating Jesse (it's safe to say she's probably gotten enough angry tweets about it already).
And Christina probably tried to shake Justin's hand rather than hug him because she'd previously seen him shake the hands of Cee-Lo Green and Adam Levine.
So what do you think of her explanation for why she reacted the way she did after greeting Justin Bieber? Is it good enough, or was it just as bad as her explanation for why she eliminated Jesse Campbell?
