Christina Aguilera has brought great shame to the Mouseketeer mantle.

The singer and former “Mickey Mouse Club” star picked a fight with Mickey at Disneyland earlier this month, TMZ reported Monday.

Aguilera was reportedly celebrating her 34th birthday at Disneyland and requested that Mickey pose with her entourage for a snapshot. Unfortunately, Mickey, aka an underpaid worker in a sweltering costume, was headed for a break.

“Do you know who I am?,” Aguilera allegedly shrieked at Mickey, even calling the 86-year-old cartoon character an “a–hole.”

Staff members then hustled Mickey to a “safe zone,” according to TMZ.

Aguilera's representative had no comment. Ryan Gosling, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake had no comment on their fellow Mouseketeer's grave transgression. The original voice of Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney, was also unavailable for comment but was presumably spinning in his grave.

DIRECTOR is A DENIM DELINQUENT

Oscar-nominated documentarian Steven Cantor couldn't escape the skinny-fit grip of the law Monday, striking a plea deal amid accusations of grand theft denim.

Cantor, director of “Blood Ties: The Life and Work of Sally Mann,” reportedly tried to give himself a discount by sticking a $299 price tag on a pair of $499 Dolce & Gabbana jeans at a New York boutique last month.

“He tried on a bunch of jeans but he didn't change any price tags or attempt to steal anything,” said Cantor's defense attorney, according to the New York Post.

Cantor was sentenced to one day of community service and a lifetime of wearing dad jeans.
