So Christina Aguilera has seemed a bit testy lately. Maybe it's because no one's been all that into to her big Bionic comeback or maybe it's because not enough focus is put on doing good stuff. Who knows? In any case, she had some questionable things to say about Lady Gaga and now has to backtrack.

It all started when Out magazine asked Xtina about Gaga, really a sort of mandatory question at this point, and this was the response: "'Oh, the newcomer?' Aguilera chuckles. 'I think she's really fun to look at.'"

Well, that's better than her 2008 response of, "I'm not quite sure who this person is, to be honest. I don't know if it is a man or a woman." But this is the first time Christina has issued a special note to clarify quotes she believes were taken out-of-context...

"I have absolutely nothing against Lady Gaga or any other female artist in this business. I think she is great, and I appreciate any woman fearless enough to go against the norm. She has earned her success with hard work and a clear focus and I have nothing but respect for that. There is room for all of us on everyone's iPods," she writes in part.

So is that clear enough for you? Xtina thinks Lady Gaga "is great." Let this be the end of this feud. Well, at least until the next interviewer asks X about her pop rival. Hope that one's on video!
