Christina AguileraBig-voiced divabeloved Voice judge and synonym for cocaine? All three were true to an alleged New York drug ring recently busted in a 340-count indictment.

According to the New York State Attorney General, 25 people were found in connection to a drug ring that allegedly distributed heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and illegal prescription medications between NYC and upstate New York. Wiretaps obtained in the investigation revealed that the traffickers used secret code words to discuss their drug activities, apparently utilizing their favorite pop stars' names in the process.

Crack cocaine was referred to as "Britney" while powder cocaine was referred to as "Christina Aguilera." There's no indication for why Xtina needed her last name. 

"The extensive use of code words suggests the extent defendants went to in an effort to obscure their alleged criminal activities," the Attorney General said.

Beyonce is reportedly fuming for being snubbed.
