The Lady Gaga – Christina Aguilera War Heats Up
Some of the strongest evidence of Lady Gaga’s heavy borrowing emerged on Wednesday not long after the release of Christina Aguilera’s new song â€œNot Myself tonightâ€. Fingers have been pointed at gaga recently as her looks have been posted side by side with looks from groundbreaking artists of all generations. In April Grace Jones unabashedly sniped when asked what she thought of her â€œ I really don’t think of her at all â€œ adding that â€œ I’ve seen some things she’s worn that I’ve worn , and that does kind of piss me off.â€
With Christina’s new release , Several Questions are raised , Who’s copying who, If gaga is copying Grace Jones, then where was Grace 10 years ago when Christina was in growing popularity for her innovative and sexually liberating performances. Why is Christina returning to the scene now with something that looks like an imitation of an imitation of herself from years ago when there is room to truly push the envelope. Not to mention the knee-jerk video for the new song â€œ not herself â€œ that immediately brings to mind several scenes of Madonna videos. The true tragedy in all of this is that no one can tell where the influence came from , we’re drowning through flood of look borrowing and scene stealing.
