Sarah Palin Slams "Airhead Diva" Christina Aguilera for Anthem Flub
Sarah Palin is fuming after Christina Aguilera flubbed the lyrics to the National Anthem during Sunday's Super Bowl XLV performance.
Speaking to Sean Hannity during a radio interview on Monday, the 46-year-old former Alaskan governor bashed the Burlesque star, calling her "a demanding beauty queen who's clearly in over her head."
"Public figures must be held accountable for what they say," Palin complained. "Here's another case of an airhead diva going on TV, running her mouth off, sounding like a fool. She doesn't understand something so basic about America, yet we're supposed to tolerate her diva behavior? Americans can see through that, Sean."
The TLC reality star also criticized both the NFL and President Obama's administration for allowing Aguilera to perform, arguing that "spicy Latin princesses" shouldn't be permitted to sing at such events.
"Unemployment is at nine percent, yet we have to suffer through a performance by a foreigner with a poor grasp of the English language?" Palin argued. "If I were president, I'd deport Ms. Aguilera back to wherever it is she's from and give Amy Smart a call."
(Though Aguilera's father, Fausto, is of Latin descent, the singer was born in New York and grew up in Pennsylvania.)
Despite her harsh criticism, Palin insisted her attack on Aguilera wasn't personal. "I'm sure Ms. Aguilera is a very nice person," she said.
