New York is totally drowning in snow right now (as is basically the whole country), so I think we can all agree that when you’re out in the cold, nothing beats a hot cup of coffee. Pop superstar Christina Aguilera stopped by Starbucks in Rockefeller Center and made a lot of customer’s days much warmer when she bought free coffee for an hour.

Alexis Warren, store manager of Starbucks Rockefeller Center Concourse, shared a firsthand account of the incident, which she describes as “instant pandemonium.”

“Christina came in with a big group of people around 4:30 in the afternoon. She told one of our baristas she wanted to buy coffee for everyone for the next hour.”

Aguilera handed the barista a few hundred dollars in cash and sent out a tweet with the photo above that said,

Coffee on me for the next hour! Head to 30 Rock! XoXtina”

Within minutes, the singer was surrounded by about 30 people who recognized her.  Though she did not actually buy a drink for herself, she autographed a Starbucks cup and stamped it with a lipstick kiss, which she left behind for the store.

Aguilera is not only an accomplished singer, but she has also just scored a guest role on ABC’s Nashville.

Starbucks is actually a sponsor of NBC’s The Voice, which Aguilera is a judge on, but she insists that her offer of free coffee was not for promotional purposes; she just wanted to surprise people.

Let’s hope anyone who got a free cup of coffee thanks to Xtina ordered a dirrty chai.
