Will Gwen Stefani & Christina Aguilera Record A Song Together? This Story Could Be A Dream Come True
It’s only Tuesday, but thanks to the corner of the Internet that has dedicated itself to music gossip, I’ve already been on two emotional Tilt-a-Whirls this week. First, there was that Kanye West/Drake/Björk “Wolves” Cashmere Cat Snapchat thing that spun my heart around in circles and all but knocked me over. And then, just when I almost regained my balance, I go and stumble upon a tidbit about two of my favorite pop queens possibly joining forces: An unnamed source recently told Hollywood Life that The Voice coaches Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani are in talks to release a “girl power song.” According to Hollywood Life's source, the former The Voice teammates “would love to start recording something and get something out for this season of the show.”
Finally, a piece of Gwen and Xtina goss that I can get behind! (Smell ya later, Xtina/Gwen feud rumors. Those rumors never were my jam anyway.) And yet, I am keeping my excitement at a safe distance; As fired up as I am at the prospect of these two platinum blonde goddesses singing together, an Xtina/Gwen duet almost seems too beautiful to be true. Like an excerpt from a work of The Voice fanfic. Or like a late ‘90s/early ‘00s fever dream. Or like my prized CD book (because who needs an iPod car adapter when you have a binder full of compact discs, am I right?) decided to surprise me with a magical Tragic Kingdom/Stripped mashup.
*Lights candle at pop music altar.* May Xtina and Gwenny Gwen Gwen belt it out on the same record, release the record, and rule the pop music charts together. It will be beautiful in every single waaaaay. I'll be waiting for their hot track. Tick tock tick tock tick tock. *Blows out candle.*
