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?
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.
Okay here's my point of view now...
Why people always compare her to other artists ? I mean everybody copies everybody. Gaga didnt create anything, neither did beyoncé and neither did Aguilera.
The problem is that people expect much more from aguilera and even when she tries to do different things, people always criticize her. when she' doing something popular she's copying Gaga and madonna. When she goes back to basics she has a lack of inspiration... anyway.
Even tho I always supported aguilera, I have to admit that after seing the video, it's not the aguilera I like. That's all I have to say, it's not about she's going gaga or whatever.
i like the fighter mode or the B2B mode. But the trashy aguilera is not my thing. Hopefully the next singles will be more mature
^ I hope so too. To be fair it took me a while to like the "Dirty" Christina too.
I like the cleaned up version of Xtina. I wasn't feeling the Diirty era and I'm not feeling this. Sorry to say but this reminds me a lot of Gaga and only one person can be the incredible goddess that is Gaga. :D
What I don't understand is why can't this chick sell as well as Beyonce? Aguilera's voice is PHENOMENAL but her record sells pale in comparison to her competitors. The public gets it wrong everytime.
Also, Christina takes more risks in her music and in her image, which gives her more of an edge, but makes her less mainstream; Christina does make commercial music, but her musical style, lyrical content, or her image did not follow a trend at one point which affects her sales. Beyonce has catchier, radio/club friendly music.
She is desperate to be relevant again. She has no real identity as an artist. Epic Flop.
I think what X-tina wants to say with NMT video is that she can do all the "super-cool" things Lady Gaga does. She wants to proove her talent.
For the most of her fans, she doesn´t need to do it. We all know how great she is,and never mind she had a break for 4 years. We didn´t forget about her.
She slap Gaga with this song and video. Xtina show us, she can do everything thah gaga or I don´t know who can. Her biggest triomph is the main diffrence between her ang Gaga. X-tina can actually SING!
^ I think she was kidding.
She needs to release another single before the album is out
I have seen similarities to Madonna and Gaga on Xtina's new vid but come on...Xtina is doing her thing and will def. have great success with this new project. I think this is her way of paying homage and respect to them. BTW- Xtina has a great voice and her music is nice lol
Lets end the comparisons between these artists
I love the song, and I've expecting more from her new album....I hope this will turn out to become another "Stripped", because that's one of the best Album...that I'm keep listening.....
And i cant wait for her tour...All the songs will be pop and all those beats....wohoooo
#1 ON US ITUNES Hell Yeah
Some audio leaked from her VH1 Storytellers from the songs "You Lost Me" and what I believe is the intro. "You Lost Me" has Sia all over it, I love it.
You Lost Me is AMAZING!!!
That is simply, Christina at her finest!!! It has the old-school, ballad feel that you'd think would've been from her last album, Back to Basics. However, I can totally see her talking this classic feeling song and pairing it with modern imagery.
Ah! I hope she releases this song before the Grammy deadline. It has great potential.
Kudos to Sia, for writing an amazing song!
You Lost Me is absolutely brilliant I'm so excited about the album
HAHAHAHA I bloody love love love this video!! For those who keep insisting that Gaga is original, think again!!
Bionic standard version has 18 tracks and the deluxe version has 23

I saw her performance on Oprah and I like it, especially her runs.
The performance was awesome but I don't like her hair like that
her hair was horrible...but the performance was good for the most part
If she would have danced, the performance would not have been lackluster for me.
The Oprah effect on "Not Myself Tonight":
Up one spot to #39 on iTunes.
Time to call it a buzz single and move on, I think.
^^ The song just doesn't have that much appeal. There's nothing she can do to make it become a legitimate hit. Time for the next single already.
Meh, "Keeps Getting Better" was better then NMT.
I'm going to have to agree with everyone else, this single was a total dud.
Christina is struggling to find herself. Her image makes no sense to me. Just yesterday she was on Oprah talking about how her son has changed her life and made her feel so empowered... talking about how she loves being a mother... so I'm a little confused by this video. There's nothing wrong with being risque, but she looks and acts like a $2.00 whore in this video.
Is she trying to be another Madonna with the constant reinventions? When she first came out she was a sweet little pop star on the heels of Britney, then she went the skanky route with "Dirrty," then she tried turning herself into Pink circa "Misundaztood" (even stealing away Linda Perry), then she went "wholesome retro" with Back to Basics, and now she's back to being an in your face slut. What is her real image?
Also, is it just me or does it sounds like her jaw is clenched when she sings? She definitely has talent, but sometimes she just sounds weird. She tries to do too many vocal tricks with all the riffs and runs to the point that some songs (her covers in particular) are almost unrecognizable. Less is more.
When she came out she said she wanted to be a blend of Mariah and Madonna, and I think this is what she's been doing. I do have to agree NMT is one of her worst singles, hopefully she'll release something way better as a second single to save this upcoming album.
Woohoo leaked today. I thought it was a joke that it featured Nicki Minaj but I was so wrong. I love it, it totally better than Not Myself Tonight.
This is so left field for Christina and I can't get enough.'
Hot I love it, She'll perform NMT & Woohoo @ MTV movie awards it's definitely the second single.
