Xtina Rips Off Inspired By Erasure??

| Filed under: Christina AguileraSeparated At BirthMusic Minute

caejb.jpg

Christina Aguilera released the cover of her new album, Bionic, earlier today and it looks strikingly similar to synthpop duo Erasure's 1991 album, Chorus!!

We wonder if her sound is going to be influenced by them, too?

We wouldn't be opposed!!

What do U think?? Is Xtina paying homage to Erasure or just ripping that shiz off??

Update: The graphic designer is DFace from London and sources tell us HE is to blame for this!

    Well Perez…you are officially a "Z" lister…



  2. 2

    Whatever, she looks hawt!



  3. 3

    DFace is to "blame" for this?! You're an idiot, Perez. The album cover looks great. As a graphic designer, I don't see enough comparisons to accuse DFace of ripping off the old album cover. Christina's album cover is very detailed and looks absolutely fantastic.



  4. 4

    THEY LOOK NOTHING ALIKE!!

    always trying to make something out of nothing

    LAME!!!!!!! dont make shiz up

    just copy and paste like ur used 2

    Xtina rocks!



  6. 6

    Copying album covers is no different than remaking old movies… every 'blue moon' people DO come up with a new idea….



  7. 7

    I believe DEBORAH HARRY did something like in 1981, her first solo album from BLONDIE…..

    Just a Platinum album called "KOO KOO" some might remember, the album had variations of the cover inside.



  8. 8

    Um, they look nothing alike.



  9. 9

    OHH FUKIN PLZZZ!!!

    YESSS XTINA SHOW THEM WERE THE "REAL" TALENT ISS!!!

    GAGA Rips off everybody in the fukin industry perez soo lets not go there…Shes basically a less talented version of Cyndi Lapour, Roisan and sooo many more

    if it rips anything off its a terminator rip off



  11. 11

    LOL…so when CaCa and Blahnce blatantly rip people off, you never say a word…but when anyone else does something just vaguely like another's work, you raise a fuss? what a hipocrite piece of flaming ass herpes you are!



  12. 12

    She always copies other artists. She is a talented singer but empty as an artist.



  13. 13

    they're not the same, first you can see an exact division, second CH has a machine inside, their those guys are green xtina is "natural" at this point we've seen it all before, honestly, this a lame post

  14. G_GLC says – reply to this


    14

    this is one of the best COVERS i have ever seen. shut the fuck up perez! stop hating Xtina. LOSER!



  15. 15

    perez why don't you post comparison of artist lady gaga has been ripping off like roisin murphy, gwen stefani, madonna, bjork, cher, dale bozzio, kylie minogue, grace jones and alexander mc queen's style. people need to stop claiming lady gaga is original because she's not



  16. 16

    I had to create a username so I could make a comment on this.

    Perez, this is truly ridiculous. You read through the comments to see that another user had made the comparison and decided to blow it out of proportion.

    The album cover is truly stunning! I highly doubt Christina or DFace were "ripping" Erasure's cover. Anything but. What they set out to do was to make an iconic album cover for which they have already achieved. It isn't really that similar other tan the split face… the mechanics going on in Xtina's face are so detailed if you look at it in HQ. She even has all of her loved ones names within it - so sweet.

    If anything the detailing of the images in the robotic side bring back memories from Michael Jackson's "Dangerous" album cover. Give the drama a rest, this is an artist who doesn't deserve this or all the Lady GaGa comparisons. Love GaGa but she's been having her moment quite some time now. It's time for the voice of our generation to have her spotlight as well. It's been too long and well overdue.



  17. 17

    First off, the two covers looks NOTHING ALIKE! Perez, like seriously, stop licking GAGA's ass hole. We all know you finger urself to that bitch every night, and now just cause you see Aguilera coming her her crusty ass wig, u wanna start shit again. Get real man.
    U are the only blogger who has accused her of copying someone else.

    Well all know where your loyalties are, even more obvious by this idiotic post.

    That said, the Cover is HAWT! I love it. Better than 99% of her peers.



  18. 18

    Oh come on nothing is completely original these days. Everything has been done in one way or another before.



  19. 19

    i don't think it looks anything a like. it has some similarities but her's is a lot better.



  20. 20

    Well it's kinda hard to be original when everything has been done before. I don't really mind if she's copying their style, as long as her music is good, I'm good.

  21. G_GLC says – reply to this


    21

    LOSER!



  22. 22

    Good then she can get a new cover for her album, cause that is just rediculous. I like xtina and if there are good songs I'll probably buy the album, I don't want to look at that cover when I do though.



  23. 23

    personally I think Christina's cover's cooler. And I think it's not Christina's fault, she hires people to make covers.



  24. 24

    I don't think she knew that. And btw. who is Erasure, I've never heard of it.
    The cd will be huge, Christina is a true artist, an icon, have to love her.
    Can§t wait to hear the cd!



  25. 25

    GA! GA! left GA-guleria in her dust years ago!



  26. 26

    oh my! it's not that bad though….they're pretty different.



  27. 27

    PEREZ REMOVE THIS IMMEDIATELY!!
    THE ERASURE ALBUM IS A TAKE ON THE BRAINS GREY MATTER AND
    XTINA'S IS A TAKE ON BEING BIONIC–TO NOT HAVE ALL HUMAN PARTS!
    THIS IS DESPERATE AND DISRESPECTFUL OF YOU.
    SHE PERFORMED FOR YOU AT YOUR 30TH BDAY DESERVING OF IT OR NOT SO PLEASE SHOW SOME RESPECT.
    IM A DAILY VIEWER OF YOUR SIGHT AND SICKENED BY THIS.



  28. 28

    Re: MclintM
    THANK YOU SO MUCH! THIS IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS POSTING HE'S HAD IN AGES.



  29. 29

    It looks like a coincidence… It also looks like crap, she's a great singer and her fans have been waiting, and waiting. I hope they didn't print these covers already, there's no need for it to be sh*tty, art doens't have to look like sh*t. hehe just a thought.



  30. 30

    Either way, looks sucky.

  31. Dawo says – reply to this


    31

    I dont care if this is a copy or NOT= I Love her Cover :) it ROCKS and her New Songs as well :)



  32. 32

    what??? Perez I love you but your standard is so double, Lady gaga takes so from the school of MADONNA and yet it is deemed okay. This album cover is GORGEOUS and ORIGINAL. sorry perez this post was mean spirited!!! xtina rules xoxoxo



  33. 33

    It is a very STYLISH cover.
    www.thethrifters.net



  34. 34

    mind control people open your eyes dont buy shit that is product of the devil and she look like cruela devil here spereated at birth



  35. 35

    Sorry but apart from the half designed face, I don't really see what the fuss is about



  36. 36

    STFU Perez, you call that copying yet GaGa rips off Madonna with everything she does and you don't say shit about that? oh it's called "paying homage" when GaGa does it, right?



  37. 37

    As a professional designer, this to me is a big ripoff! These things, even if the other art was done a decade ago, would be easy enough to research to insure no accidental copying was done. Besides, this cyborg thing was very big in the early
    '90's. Christina's people should have come up with something more original and contemporary. Even the robot-like Black Eye Peas cover looks dated. Look how GaGa used striking head shot teases for both the Fame and Monster covers-very high fashion and modern.



  38. 38

    You ungrateful pig, after she sang for you, you still post this?! No wonder everyone hates your sorry fugly fat ass!



  39. 39

    think about how old she was in 1991 cmon. I bet she didnt know about this. either way her cover still looks good



  40. 40

    I think its looks great she should keep it…looks better than the original one



  41. 41

    So what?!? Christina is a great singer and her music is hot.



  42. 42

    Oranges are round. Apples are sort of round. Oh my God. The Orange totally ripped off the Apple. That is such a stupid post. It's like you were getting paid by the word and stretched this ridiculous thing out.



  43. 43

    Xtina is just another fake puppet of the industry. She doesn't think, they tell her what will sell, and what the new trends are, and then they do it all for her.



  44. 44

    PEREZ-
    WHERE WAS YOUR POST WHEN BRITNEY DID ENTIRE THEME BASED ON THE CIRCUS WHICH WAS A DIRECT TAKE FROM XTINAS BACK TO BASICS CIRCUS INSPIRED SECOND DISC AND CONCERT MATERIAL–IF YOU WANT TO ENTER THIS VENUE OF CRITICISM YOU HAVE TO INCLUDE ALL MUSIC PARTIES AND AGAIN-THIS IS NOT A COPY BUT TWO DIFFERENT TOPICS-GREY MATTER AND HAVING BIONIC PARTS ARE NOT THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!



  45. 45

    The cover is NOT a rip-off. Find a HQ version of Christina's album cover, and you will notice the word "Dface" engraved on one of the instruments on the left half of her face. She didn't just plagiarise verbatim and copy blatanly - she actually had the gumption to cite the source.

    You people need to get over yourselves.



  46. 46

    Re: aguilerafanaz – I got my girls back, he'll be biting his tongue soon enough. The world is about to be truly shocked. This cover is great also for the fact that even to the average person everyone will be looking at the cover. Nobody is going to be able to pass this without even looking for who it is!



  47. 47

    OMG IT'S A HEAD AS WELL IT MUST BE A RIP OFF!111



  48. 48

    Sounds like something she'd do. First she TRIES to be like Gaga and now this.



  49. 49

    MclintM took the words right out of my mouth. someone posted that comment earlier that it like whoever the fuck erasure is. i looked it up and didn't see what they were talking about. so….perez decides to post that? does that count as ripping off one of your readers. i also agree with dwg that if anything it rips off terminator. but this erasure cd i guess has somewhat of a similar idea, but they are DEFINITELY different



  50. 50

    the album cover…i like it, except for the lips. i wish she would stop thinking fucking red lipstick looks good….it doesnt NO ONE CAN PULL IT OFF!!!!!!!



  51. 51

    When the fuck was the last time Perez said anything nice. Oh wait… that would be the last Gag me post. Hey Dickhead… its been at least an hour, I really need to know if Caca has taken a shit.



  52. 52

    People are hardly buying CDs anymore; album covers are becoming a lost art. I think it's great she's paying homage to past album covers, and like one person stated, when I first saw it, I was instantly reminded of Debbie Harry's KOO KOO album from 1981 (although her album didn't show a mechanical skull).



  53. 53

    They're similar but it's not an out and out copy. And your an ass for trying to insinuate otherwise.



  54. 54

    Honestly, I don't see much of a connection with these two album covers. I've seen similar imagery in other places.



  55. 55

    so sad



  56. 56

    perez fuck off..be thankful she gave your bitch lady gaga a platform



  57. 57

    Hahaha, it's funny how Perez says Xtina ripped off that unknown old person's album cover, and doesn't mention the huge account of people Lady Gaga has "ripped off".



  58. 58

    AWESOME!! FINALLY someone gets it!!! WAY TO GO PEREZ!!!



  59. 59

    although I LOVE Erasure and i'm no fan of Christina, I find the covers quite different despite the "concept" resemblance. that concept was widely used (half human/half machine), yet the artwork has quite a different feel. I even have the "Chorus" CD and in no way think they're on the same page. so…



  60. 60

    Who digs up these random bands and finds a way to convince the public that someone else is ripping them off?
    Im sorry, who is erasure? Did I miss one of their good songs?



  61. 61

    Maybe if your head wasn't so far up Lady Gaga's cooch people would give a fuck.



  62. 62

    She's smarter than I thought she was! This is an electronic album and if you're going to steal — steal from the best! Vince Clarke should do a remix!!

  63. Brtt says – reply to this


    63

    My guess is she doesn't even know who Erasure is. I'm a fan of Erasure, and sad to say, I don't even remember this album cover. Kudos to her..now I'll buy hers and look for theirs.



  64. 64

    Figures. It sucks anyway.



  65. 65

    Trust me, its not her fault, its her label that makes this cover. Gah these pop ppl have NO say so ppl. wake the heck up. This cover is creepy as heck



  66. 66

    Re: COCO_LADY – Ya, she did it all before all of these bitches



  67. 67

    seriously though, i don't how anyone can think this is a rip off. C'mon they have one similarity. They are totally different in every other way! Xtina's looks awesome.

    You go girl, can't wait to hear the first single from this new album! Gees i hope she doesn't have one out already!

    and that update is ridiculous! where's your source? your own fucking posse's comments!?

    I see that a lot of commentators agree with me on this one!



  68. 68

    SUCH BULLSHIT !!!!! you think LADY GAGA is this original artist, Google GRACE JONES then tell me who is ripping who off. Your such a piece of shit any way for you to knock Christina down. I cant wait to see how pissed that fat face of yours is going to look when she knocks Lady Shit face off the charts, and when her 15 min are up. Talk to me about Gaga 10 years from now when everyone has gotten sick of her ridiculous outfits that are crying out for attention.



  69. 69

    There's a difference between being inspired and paying homage to ripping off.

    Example: The Clash's classic London Calling cover was taken from Elvis Presley's.



  70. 70

    Re: aguilerafanaz – I just had to get my own account to reply to this! I find it finny how no one ever mentioned how Christina Started the Circus theme back in 2006 and had a circus theme for her tour back then, and everyone else followed with it! Especially Britney! And you dont comment on that you fugly piece of lard?! Christina has started a different trend, and its reinventing herself! Making albums out of the ordinary, doing Circus themes! THAT is something i would call copied! Its the same concept but everything is the same concept out there nowadays, nothing is original! Not even GaGa who you praise so much! and for what? Same reasons as everyone else expressed above! She is NOT original, as much as i love her music! Stop being so THICK, Christina sang at your bday party, simply because you knew no one would even turn up without her performing! You're lame for disrespecting her so much when she works so hard and tries to be as different as possible from everything and everyone out there. Like I said, very few ppl are original anymore, and you even less since you're trying so hard to get ppl's attention by being so shallow and disrespectful towards other people who have done far more than you. And the joke is - it's even working. Skank.



  71. 71

    fuck you perez! christina's cover looks great!
    and i don't see the comparisons! you must be stupid, dumb or fucking retarded!
    its funny how you never mention your miss gaga ripping of Roisin murphy, gwen stefani, madonna, bjork, cher and dale bozzio! oh wait thats cause you suck her ass everytime!
    and wait didn't christina perform for you at your birthday? wow your an asshole!!!!!!!!!



  72. 72

    Perez u officially are a dumb fuck!!! How is she coping erasure? You need 2 get a life and find something news worthy 2 write about. How about lady gaga riping off roisin murphy!!!



  73. 73

    LOL! At this point everyone is ripping off everyone…People are running out of ideas and this is what happens. Gaga rips off so and so…Rihanna rips off so and so…List goes on and one and on and on. Who the fuck cares anymore. I am sick of argueing with people over who ripped off who that now I really don't care.



  74. 74

    perez why don't you post comparison of artist lady gaga has been ripping off like roisin murphy, gwen stefani, madonna, bjork, cher, dale bozzio, kylie minogue, grace jones and alexander mc queen's style. people need to stop claiming lady gaga is original because she's not (2)



  75. 75

    Re: goodtasteishardtofind – Yes well Madonna's been ripping off people her whole life. Debbie Harry (blondie) and Marylin Manore to name but a few



  76. 76

    this post is getting me upset! perez is such an asshole! plz remove this post its like you have nothing better to do than to bring down a hard working artist like christina! and last time i checked gaga is being sued for what you might ask? yep for being unoriginal! she didn't come up with her own stuff! so shove that in your oven!



  77. 77

    who gives a f… she's still a very talented singer … hoping it doesnt sound similiar



  78. 78

    How come Beyonce and Lady Gaga can be inspired by other artist but Christina is just a copycat???Was Pink paying homage to Cirque Du Soleil are did she copy them?



  79. 79

    i dont think it was on pupose!!!



  80. 80

    Re: aguilerafanazRe: aguilerafanaz – OMG!!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR THE BIGGEST LAUGH IVE HAD IN A LOOOONG TIME!!!! You must be the BIGGEST most raging QUEEN ever!!! LMAO!!!
    I had to let EVERYONE read your post and how disgusted you are!! LMAO!!
    And DEMANDING this to be takin DOWN!!! HAHAHAHA!!!
    OMG!!! I love it!!!
    *
    And just for the record, Craptina sucks ass and if this BITCH ASS WHORE ever did anything original, I would die of shock!
    She is a poser, A liar and a Shit talker!
    Fuck u, Fuck Christina Im out!!
    Ps
    Christina is an AssHole!
    Lol



  81. 81

    you fucking get on my nerves perez. so she pulls out an abum cover that looks similar to something and you say she rips off. an yet gaga has been ripping off looks from grace jones, david bowie, bjork, roisin murphy, etc and you speak of her as a trendsetter. i'm tired of your biased views on artists and really really hope your website disappears forever now.



  82. 82

    Re: aguilerafanaz – LMAO!! are you kidding with this?! CHRISTINA RIPPED OFF THE CIRCUS THEME FROM MADONNAS "GIRLIE SHOW" DONE YEARS BEFORE COPYTINA STEPPED FOOT ON TOUR, AND IM SURE OTHER ARTIST DID IT BEFORE MADONNA!
    DON'T BE AN IDIOT, AND DONT GIVE COPYTINA SOO MUCH CREDIT, SHE IS A WASTE OF SPACE.



  83. 83

    Re: sexyjocey – how ignorant can a person be? or maybe you are just 10 years old? Christina Aguilera was making music almost 10 years before Gaga came around. You display so much stupidity when you say Christina is copying Gaga. I can't even believe i am wasting my time responding to you. honestly, use your brain!



  84. 84

    Of course she copied it….she copies everyone…….LOL



  85. 85

    This is so not a rip off. You know people will say anything to hate on Christina and I really don't know why. She is beautiful and has a great voice and will be starring in a movie with Cher who says that she is really good. Plus it is called bionic, much like the bionic woman or six million dollar man, they are human with robotic parts, not completely a robot. In this case half her face is BIONIC. This is a stretch, this matches perfectly with the album title, does the Erasure album title match the cover?



  86. 86

    Re: COCO_LADY – YOU ARE SO RIGHT!!! DEAD ON RIGHT!! PEREZ MUST POST THE SIMILARITIES



  87. 87

    CHRISTINA AGUILERA HAS N-O-T-H-I-N-G ORIGINAL TO OFFER THE WORLD…OF COURSE SHE STOLE THIS IDEA. AND TO "BLAME" THE GRAPHIC DESIGNER? PLEEZ BITCH, HER ASS GOT CALLED OUT AND POINTED TO A SCAPEGOAT. THIS IS A RIP-OFF OF ERASURE AND DEBORAH HARRY'S SOLO ALBUM KOO-KOO….LOOK IT UP



  88. 88

    UMMMMMMM NO, I THOUGHT YOU WOULD OF SAID SHE GOT THE IDEA FROM TERMINATOR…….YOUR SUCH AN IDIOT PEREZ! CHRISTINAS ARTWORK IS ORIGINAL!!!!! EAT IT HATERS! YOUR JUST PISSED CUZ SHE LOOKS FIERCE AND IS GONNA BRING HEAT! YOU AND YOUR LADY BLAH BLAH CAN SUCK IT HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.



  89. 89

    PEREZ STUPID AS ALWAYS!!



  90. 90

    Perez, you fucking poor, unfortunate soul. You must have been living in the dark ages, because artists have been ripping other artists off for QUITE SOME TIME NOW!!!! Get with the times, asshole!



  91. 91

    You know I just had to comment this is my first time here but I am a Huuuugggee Erasure fan! I don't really think Xtina ripped their Cover, but might have been really Inspired, and what is wrong with being inspired, many, many many artist are inspired by others and as a Fan of both I think its a great thing. Also I don't really think it's all that similar…..

  92. rev3 says – reply to this


    92

    it's ALL been done before

    very few things are totally original these days

    BIG DEAL!



  93. 93

    Artists borrow from each other all the time. Perez should stick to gossip!



  94. 94

    they arent alike but even still they make the same music as what she is hoping to do - it was likely to have been a tribute
    but perez - why cant you pick a side? do you like her or not?



  95. 95

    Who´s Ereasure??¿?—– I LOVE this cover!!!!!!!



  96. 96

    not even close, similar but not the same!



  97. 97

    Ummm. WOW. Those two album covers look NOTHING alike. AT ALL.

    And MY OPINION is the only one that REALLY counts. The end.



  98. 98

    That's some bad editing on Christina's part.



  99. 99

    Erasure's album cover used real X-ray photos of themselves. This dumb whore's album cover is nothing but a shitty drawing.



  100. 100

    it does look similar,
    but the concept of the album looks totally different.
    im both a gaga and xtina lover,
    perez we all know where you loyalties lie,
    can you not just drop it for once,
    they're both great artists in their own right
