Ever since Christina Aguilera's new video 'Not Myself Tonight' made it's debut earlier this week, a lot of people have been weighing in on whether it's original X-Tina or Lady Gaga swagger j******.
Akon has flat out accused Christina of copying Gaga, he told Vibe:
"I just think she just needs to believe in herself more. I think sometimes she gets insecure because of all of the success Gaga has had not realizing that she was already successful before Gaga came out.”
Judging from some of the comments left on the youtube video, public opinion seems to be that the video is a Lady Gaga rip off.
I think times are changing in music and with that so will the look of videos. Take almost any of the hundreds of generic hip hop videos that have come out recently. Switch out the artists and a lot of them look almost indentical. Yet we don't hear a lot of talk about this kind of thing.
My point is, Lady Gaga doesn't own any particular style of video or music. In fact, many people think Gaga herself has taken a big chunk of her style from Grace Jones and Madonna.
Jones has gone on record, saying Gaga copied from her and is not original. She told The Guardian she turned down a request to work with her for that reason.
"Yes, she did (ask about a duet), but I said no. I'd just prefer to work with someone who is more original and someone who is not copying me, actually. Well, you know, I've seen some things she's worn that I've worn, and that does kind of p**s me off. I wouldn't go to see her."
So what do you peeps think? Check out Christina's new vid and leave your thoughts.
"Those are obviously kitchen knives but, I guess "machete hacking" sounds more sensational then "stabbed with kitchen knives." These two idiots ain't terrorists either they at least have a clear message and a definitive goal.…"
