It Keeps Getting Better?

Yesterday, VEVO premiered Christina Aguilera’s new music video for “Not Myself Tonight,” and it’s already causing some hate amongst Lady Gaga fans. When Christina released the music video for “It Keeps Getting Better” a couple of years ago,  people accused her of copying Lady Gaga’s style. Granted Christina was wearing long bleached blond hair with bangs cut straight across the forehead, which is considered to be Gaga’s signature “look.” However, I would argue that Ms. Aguilera has always rocked the bleached blond hair with various different hairstyles. Perhaps it was just the timing of her chosen look that was the issue?

Anyways, people are already saying that Christina is copying Gaga once again in “Not Myself Tonight.” As a huge Aguilera fan, I must admit that “Not Myself Tonight” does have some resemblances to Gaga’s videos, especially with all of the crazy/frightening outfits. With that said, as much as people want to believe that Gaga is an “original,” everyone must remember that every artist, including Gaga, Beyonce, and Britney Spears has gained inspiration from and/or copied someone else before them. Let’s keep it real… Plus, Christina has always been a risk taker with her dramatic makeup, fashion choices, and music video concepts. Remember her video for “Fighter”?

Anyways, check out the video for “Not Myself Tonight” and let me know what you think. **It’s technically not appropriate for all ages. It’s a little raunchy people! Just a tad… lol

Update: I found the edited “clean” version! So the unedited has been replaced. You will have to go directly to Youtube to see it.


Whether she’s copying or not, Christina looks great and the voice is just as strong! BUT, will things keep getting better for Christina with this type of sound and video??? Only time will tell. 😉

Sidenote: Can artists stop advertising perfumes and alcohol in their videos??? Just saying…..It’s a little tacky in my opinion.

p.s. Check out the interview Christina did about “Not Myself Tonight” on Access Hollywood. Her baby, Max, looks just like her!

I also found this review of “Not Myself Tonight.” I have to say that I agree with a lot of what this guy’s saying.

He’s hilarious. lol

Christina’s new album Bionic, which includes “Not Myself Tonight,” hits shelves June 8th!

    Hmm………I guess you can’t watch it without thinking of Lady Gaga. Nothing against Christina but I just liked her old stuff better. In a way, she’s back! Lol.

      Yeah…I think I more or less have to agree with you. But I support Christina in whatever she does since she’s talented…I just hope this doesn’t backfire on her. Anyways, thanks for commenting. Tell your friends about ipeoplewatch and keep reading! 🙂
