Christina Aguilera "Not Myself Tonight" Music Video 2010-04-30 11:00:00

Christina Aguilera Isn't Herself in Her New Music Video

Instead, she's a Madonna-Lady Gaga hybrid, clad in diamond dominatrix gear in her latest, "Not Myself Tonight." It's the first we've seen of Aguilera in a while, and she's out to climb her way back onto our radar — on all fours. Yikes. As she grinds up on dancers in her skivvies (watch for Jenna Dewan in the mix), I can't help but think she's trying too hard, even if the song is catchy. Side note: is that a perfume ad around the 2:16 mark? Make your judgments in the comments after you

ehhh...she's is just SO MUCH BETTER than this! she has the best voice and range of any of the pop stars (gaga, madonna, britney)...hands down (with maybe the exception of mariah or celine dion-does she count as pop?? haha). why does she lower herself to this trashy, club-y music so often??

Stepping out on a the privacy of your own bedroom...even if all you do is put perfume on for your man...we all secretly have that wild side. That is what I got from this video. Many look at me and see a soccer mom, a medical professional, a writer, or just some silly redhead...but I can put the diva on just as well as the next woman. I know I have a wild side that nobody sees except my husband and he fully appreciates it. To me, this video reminds us that we can be all those things. Wild, imaginative, sexual, and every inch diva in our own way. To deny ourselves those different expressions within ourselves is limiting. I applaud Christina on this one. It is easy for someone to say she may have stepped over that line but that does not give her credit for her own "cheeky" look at the many faces of women. I see deeper meaning here. Madonna, Gaga and even male performers like Justine Timberline have shown the risque side of sexuality in music videos...many performers do this. There is a little naughty side to all of us... some perfume....kinky shoes....pretty or all of these things reside in most women's bedrooms. Listen to the words to this song again and perhaps you may see this video with new eyes.

While I sort-of like the song, the video is horrible; not so much the topic but the way it came off as just trying far too hard to be "edgy" and in the "now". None of the moves seemed to flow effortlessly from Christina, instead it felt like a overdone act. Some of the get-ups seem a bit too similar to Gaga & Madonna; the backdrop with the dancers seemed to hark to Spears in Circus & "3". Overall a poor video from a known pop star; especially when compared to past efforts such as "Ain't No Other Man". Also the background dancers seemed more interesting to watch the Xtina herself; my focus was shifting since the dancers were more convincing in the movement. On a side note, I think I saw a few dancers from SYTYCD in the group though the camera did not focus long enough for me to really tell.

I miss understated female artists like Fiona Apple, India Arie, Alanis Morissette, etc...Not everything has to be over the top and flamboyant. Sometimes people just want to hear a great song.

That was incredibly awkward to watch. Christina doesn't need to copy anyone else. She's been really good at creating her own image in the past, so I'm confused as to why she's trying so hard to do what's already been done in this video.

The song sucks and she's trying to take our attention off that fact...but it's not working. Still sucks. What a tramp.

She reinvents her looks constantly out of boredom. We all do. She isn't trying to be anyone. Its amazing no-one calls lady gaga out for ripping off so many artists.

It almost seemed like she was paying a little tribute to Madonna, with the "Human Nature" and "Express Yourself" as opposed to straight up copying, since the references to the video were so similar. I love Christina since "Genie in a Bottle" but this is a bit too much for me. It's obvious that Lady Gaga's success has gotten to her and she really wants to be the controversial one again, although the only time she really caused controversy is when she hit up a red carpet event with cornrows and blonde afro.

It seems over sexed. Like yeah, I have a kid but I'm still hot. Okay, we get it. But tone it down.
