you know you like it. :D
Christina's interview about the album. Death @ her reaction to the guy who coughed when she was speaking lol. I like how she gave detail fulled answers than giving answers that her people could tell her to say whats the album about. That shows how involved she is with her music.
Anyone else like Not Myself Tonight yet? It's been on the radio a lot. Then again, Canada kind of goes overkill...Just Dance was overplayed here six months before Gaga actually became famous. >.>

"Not Myself Tonight" is garbage, and I love watching it tumble down the iTunes charts, but I still expect the album to be good, or at the least an interesting listen. I do love the people she's collaborated with.
A quick preview of the video, I can't wait. She's being slutty again.
WOW can't wait to see the video she looks hot and that body is insane
For the first time in her whole career Im actually really worried about this record
Reminds me of Madonna Human Nature anyway can't wait to see it the video looks sick
Don't be. Seriously, don't be.Quote:

I'm so excited
Her male dancers are always so hot :P.
NMT drops from 23 to 49 this week on the Hot 100? LG's Alejandro already top 20 and it hasn't even been released as a single yet? Why, aren't they giving Christina the same amount of airplay? I'm worried now too...and disappointed!
See anything similar to this pic below in this thread? Yah! And Beyonce wore those ballet shoes way back in one of her B'Day videos.
She's clearly copying everyone she can. I wanted her to bring everything new.
NO shade to Beyonce because I like her music, but who hasn't she copied. Lady Gaga's originality is shaken too since Grace Jones put her on blast. Who's really original now a days? I can already see the many rants that she's copying GaGa with this new video.
Wow she killed it!
It's quite the video I must say....very "Justify My Love"-ish.
Perez is going crazy on twitter pointing out everything she "stole" from GaGa.....blah blah
I liked the costumes, but the video was not innovative. I did find myself thinking about Madonna's "Express Yourself" and "Justify My Love" videos during certain parts.
Everybody "copies" everybody. You cant do anything w/o finding a similarity of someone else somewhere. The only way she could do something that know one else has done is if she were to make a snuff film and set someone on fire.
The thing that sets Christina apart is she has a voice that is unbelievable. And she is the only one who has always openly supported the gay/bi community. Gaga does too but Gaga has only been around for 2 years.
One thing that was cool was the part where she bends her body like a pretzel. That shit was hot. I had know idea she was that flexible. This the first time Ive seen her and thought she prolly puts it down in bed.
This is sad lol...
LMFAO .. I think for those people who are criticizing her video should actually analyze the song.."NOT MYSELF TONIGHT". People are so quick to point out what she "copied" or what not, I betcha this is the point of the VIDEO. Those who pointed this out will LOOK LIKE TOTAL FOOLS once Christina herself clarifies this. I'm so tired of Gaga comparisons too btw, my gosh if Christina wants to copy Gaga she should smash her face with a mallet and grow a dick, coz that's the only she'll have some sort of resemblance with Gaga physically.
I saw lots of Madonna, I guess that's what she was going for. But it does fit the song though. I don't get how Lady Gaga is friends with that douche bag.
I like the video. And I don´t care if she´s copying someone. It´s Cristina and I´m gonna love her no matter what.
And about the album, I´m not worried. Bionic will be huge
seeing alllll of those similarities posted above....it is SO obvious that this is the point of the video...she's taken from other artists, becuase she's "Not Herself Tonight"....that's what I think...there's no way in hell someone would make a video with that many similarities and not have done it on purpose.
Not a fan of Not Myself Tonight!!! For me it doesn't matter if she copied anyone else or not!! I'm deeply saddened to see someone with such GREAT TALENT sink to such depths when she doesn't need to!! I thought the video was DISGUSTING!! And what makes it worse is she's a mother!! For the record while I like Lady Gaga's music I'm not a fan of her videos either!!
Totally disappointed in the video--and still not really impressed with the song. She can do so much better than this. #-o
I can't wait to hear other songs from the album. There MUST be better stuff on there...
The monsters took no prisoners last night lol
I fucking love the video! >.< (!)
It's a big sarcastic diss of all the iconic images of other artist's videos. Madonna, GaGa, Beyonce, Stefani, Spears... LOL
Video is called "Not MYSELF Tonight"...
Relax people... #-o
Sarcastic Diss or not it's still beneath someone of her TALENT!!! I only hope the rest of the album is better than this and she gets back to doing great videos like the one for HURT. For me that's a CLASSIC video!!
The video is amazing and so enjoyable and sexy and It fits the song perfectly and she looks so fucking hot also I loved all her references to the queen of Pop Madonna
Since the release of her mediocre attempts at crossing into the now lucrative 'techno/pop' genre that Lady Gaga made (undeservedly) popular two years ago, I have wondered about the state of Christina Aguilera's voice. It would seem that this is a genre favoured by singers whose vocal abilities are limited or dramatically diminished, and we should not forget that Miss Aguilera is notorious for her inability to produce what she "does" on record, while performing live.
Her tone is amazing and, as long as she is singing in the mid tenor range, her voice is very powerful, agile and elastic. However, anything above that is largely outside of her capabilities, unless it is in a very frail head voice. The fact that "Not Myself Tonight" doesn't even cover an octave in range, is performed in a half-sung/half-spoken manner and only contains heavily edited high notes in the background, would suggest that she is already losing her voice... Or maybe she has decided to release an album that will enable her vocal chords to have a much needed rest.
As for the video, it is as tacky, uninteresting and dull as the song itself. All of this has been done before and yes, Lady Gaga is a better plagiarist than Christina, probably because she is so over the top, that it is difficult to perceive the whiff of desperation through the whirling colours. In Christina's case, she is hampered by her ridiculous sense of self-importance, which always makes her want to make a grand statement. Hence, the result is dull and pretentious, as everything she has always done.
I cannot say that I'm exactly waiting for this album with much interest... Especially if the lack of quality in the material is as awful as in her previous shitty effort.
I don't get why everyone is really worked up over familiar imagery. The real question to me, is if she is really wearing leather masks etc. and using whips in her actual sex life. I would hope that the video really is some sort of homage or commentary on popular imagery for blonde female pop stars OR her commenting on her newly found sex life. If neither of those are correct, then what is the point of the video?
:lol: Pretty much everything I wanted to say about this already got stated by the rest of you all. :-)
And what's up with all the Xtina criticism on his part? I was under the impression that he and her were as thick as thieves? What, he never forgave her for saying she didn't know whether or not his precious Gagaloo was actually a female? :lol:
Speaking of which, Christina shouldn't talk herself with all of that drag makeup she had on in the video. Miss Raven, was that you? :lol:
Then again that's far too clever and good for most pop music fans to pick up on.
Not liking it at all.
I usually wait until a clip's released for a song that I don't like to start making judgment but I dunno.
Guess I was expecting more from Christina then a rehash of everything that has been done before and done better by the artists she's imitating.
She's not herself tonight? Bitch has been 'inspired' by other female artists for her entire career. Not being herself would require being original.
I'm hoping that the rest of the album is better. Isn't that her track record now? The singles always flopped on the charts but the album is gold. I have no problem with the video except the product placement of her fragrance. Nothing wrong with promotion but it looked tacky. Who's the guy on the bed in the last scene? Hottie!
Just because you can reach a particular pitch doesn't mean that you can do it well, or that it does have any degree of musical value. Maybe your fanaticism is the real problem, and not what you suppose to be pretension on my part.
