  5. 5

    At first glance she kinna look like lady gaga! Remember in the Telephone video when Gaga answered a phone call in prison? She was sporting a very similar jacket and hairdo.

    Re: Delphia – grow up. She has been in the business over 10 years now, sold millions of albums and she has a family. She has one of the best voices. I bet she is just fine without being Gaga.

    Ugh. Christina may have an amazing voice, but that's all she's got going for her. When she first started, she was copying Britney and now she's copying Gaga's sound and look. Get your own identity, bitch.



  11. 11

    I really hope her new album is better than her first single. I hate it. The girl has had long enough to make a PERFECT album. Not impressed with the first single at all.



  12. 12

    Um…………………………….everytime this asshole has a new album out all she ever talks about is how "comfortable I am with my sexuality". Shut the fuck up. If you were, you wouldn't roll around in a pool of makeup before leaving the house.



  13. 13

    She sounded pretty tired from a long day of shooting, but I think she is in a good place. Can't wait to see the video, love the song!



  14. 14

    HOW IS SHE A LADY GAGA WANNABE?

    CHRISTINA HAS BEEN ROCKING THE PLATINUM BLONDE HAIR AND RED LIPS FOR MANY YEARS NOW WAY BEFORE GAGA CAME OUT.

    NOTHING ABOUT CHRISTINA HERE SAYS GAGA.



  15. 15

    Re: getOffiTalready – Oh just shut the fuck up, clown.



  16. 16

    Re: Laury – Ra-ra, ra-ah-ah, Roma, Roma-ma, GaGa, ohh la la…First she was Britney. Then she was Madonna. Now she's Lady GaGa. Copycat!



  17. 17

    she was relevant back in the early 2000 somehow marriage screwed her career…
    but compared to Britney who was relevant back then also the latter was a train wreck!



  18. 18

    lame. boring. and gross.



  19. 19

    CHRISTINA NEVER COPIED BRITNEY. SHE WAS MADE TO BE A POP ARTIST BUT NEVER WANTED TO BE THAT SQUEEKY CLEAN GIRL. SHE WANTED TO SHOW OFF HER VOICE NOT HIDE BEHIND DANCING AND LIP SYNCING LIKE BRITNEY.

    AS SOON AS SHE GOT FAMOUS ENOUGH TO DO HER OWN THING SHE DID.

    WHEN DIRRTY CAME OUT I DON'T RECALL ANYONE DOING WHAT CHRISTINA WAS DOING.

    BACK TO BASICS DIDN'T SOUND LIKE ANYTHING THAT WAS OUT NEITHER.

    GOD FORBID SHE SWITCH UP HER STYLE AND TRY DIFFERENT STYLES OF MUSIC THAT EXCUSE ME- HAVE BEEN OUT BEFORE GAGA AND HER WERE EVEN IN JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL.

    THAT'S NOT CALLED NEEDING TO FIND HER OWN IDENTITY IT'S CALLED- VERSATILITY!!!! THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS…CHRISTINA HAS SO MUCH TALENT THAT ::GASP:: SHE CAN SING ANYTHING AND ROCK IT.

    IT TAKES TALENT TO BE ABLE TO SING ANY GENRE YOU WANT AND SOUND GOOD DOING SO.

    SHE'S DONE- GOSPEL, POP, R&B, POP/ROCK, BALLADS, DANCE/HOUSE MUSIC, OLDIES AND SOUNDED DAMN GOOD DOING ALL. THAT LADIES AND GENTLEMAN IS A TRUE ARTIST.

    LOL AT ANYONE TRYING TO TALK DOWN ABOUT HER BECAUSE SHE'S VERSATILE. OH MY GENERATION IS SO CLUELESS AND USED TO COMPLETE TRASH ARTISTS THAT THEY DON'T EVEN REALIZE A REAL ONE WHEN THEY'VE BEEN STARING THEM IN THE FACE FOR OVER 10 YEARS.

    Re: Assbleep – WOW TOUGH GUY OVER HERE. ALRIGHT THERE INTERNET GANGSTER.



  21. 21

    Re: jesyrene – BRITNEY WAS A COPYCAT OF THE 80S POP SINGER TIFFANY.

    GAGA IS A COPYCAT OF MADONNA AND THE 90S NEW YORK CITY CLUB SCENE AND KIDS WHO STARTED "PARTY MONSTER."



  22. 22

    hmmmm…
    .
    she looks like pathetic Sheena Easton trying to change her image by looking tough in the late 1980's…
    …or like she trying out for Sandy in Grease and went way overboard with the makeup and jewelry.
    .
    Who she really reminds me of, is a young Ethel Merman. She has the vocal range and power to have a long career in musicals à la Merman.
    .
    In any case, she's super-talented; WAY WAY better than that ridiculous Lady Gaga, and IMO she should distinguish herself with the thing she has that none of the other pop princesses have: an amazing and powerful VOICE.



  23. 23

    Re: getOffiTalready – sorry, but constantly typing with caps lock on makes you look like a dickhead. shut up



  24. 24

    Re: Delphia – CHRISTINA IS NOT COPYING LADY GAGA. LADY GAGA IS A COPYCAT HERSELF SHE HAS BEEN RIPPING OFF GRACE JONES, ROISIN MURPHY, BJORK MADONNA AND DALE BOZZIO. LADY GAGA IS NOT ORIGINAL SO SHUT UP



  25. 25

    I love her, but she's giving serious mixed messages with her body language. The whole time she's saying how much she loves being a mother she's shaking her head no. She also can't keep any eye contact, stop averting your eyes Xtina :)



  26. 26

    Woow, she looks so HOT!!! Like a rockstar!
    Chrisitna is amazing, I can't wait to see the music video!!



  27. 27

    Re: Carlo_B – SORRY, BUT COMPLAINING ABOUT SOMETHING SO MINISCULE AS SOMEONE TYPING IN CAPS LOCK MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A "DICKHEAD."
    THAT'S SO CORNY. GET OVER IT.



  28. 28

    shes still in her 20s lol she meant her early 20s
    im kinda hoping this video ends up like a "Dirrty" for 2010 since the song already reminds me of it
    .
    and again - copying gaga? what with her back to basics red lipstick and blonde curly hair, which she has worn like this before? and a studded leather jacket? (cause they dont sell them in nearly every shop?!) HAHAHA talk about delusional!

  29. Merab says – reply to this


    29

    She speaks strange there…
    She says right things…no problem with that… but smth is off…I cannot point it…
    Probably just the way she is and things she always speak about are not interesting ,I guess…
    Good voice though- I hope she finds herself with the new material…Time has changed- people around,too



  30. 30

    I love her and all, but she is constantly trying to be like Madonna. This look is so Madonna 1994 when she had naval and nose piercings, dressed really high fashion and rocked the red lips and hoop earrings. I wish all these pop stars would be a little more original in their looks.



  31. 31

    she trying TOO hard, but thats the play of her game, first she had to play keepy uppy with Britney, now its GaGa… Talentless minger music scene didnt miss u!!



  32. 32

    Sorry, she can talk all she wants about her confidence, but she's nothing but a scripted corporate whore. She's calculated and boring. Her body language shows she's nothing but a friggen phoney. I don't care if she has a good voice, her personality sucks! Actually…she's still trying to find one…..



  33. 33

    GaGa wannabe…she is trying to be so hard talking and badass…what a prostitute.
    but i will say, unlike Britney, Christina can at least sing.

  34. exBFF says – reply to this


    34

    sweetie…eye contact. The whole random eye thing makes you look disinterested, bored and scripted beyond belief.



  35. 35

    I can't believe how much venom there is out there. It looks like people love to mouth off whenever they get the chance. No matter what style of music Christina performs, people will accuse her of copying someone. The reality is that Lady Gaga did not invent dance-pop, Madonna did not invent pop, Beyonce did not invent R&B, Amy Winehouse did not invent jazz, and Pink did not invent rock. These are established genres of music that came about and continue to evolve from the collective efforts of many talented people. It's interesting to note that during childhood, Christina's out-of-this-world singing ability incited jealousy and anger toward her, and it still happens to this day. I love Lady Gaga's music, but that doesn't mean I have to be mean-spirited toward Christina and discount her monumental contributions to music. I can't wait to get more of that voice when her album comes out in June! Christina is to popular music what Renee Fleming is to opera!



  36. 36

    Wanna be Gaga!!!!!!!!!!



  37. 37

    You Gaga fans are pathetic. Everytime something Christina related is posted here the first damn thing you say is "she's copying Gaga."

    If you didn't care for Christina and you didn't think she was a threat to Gaga you wouldn't feel the need to hate on Christina and accuse her of being a copycat. By hating on her, your just proving that Christina pushes your buttons and that your genuinely nervous that she is going to have a great comeback that will topple Gaga.



  38. 38

    love how most of you are leaning into her for biting some sort of style, but stylists/MUAs exist for a reason and nothing is original anymore. lady gaga is a shiteous artist compared to aguilera and if you stripped (no pun intended) both of these ladies of all image-related support, i think we all know who would come out on top. germaNOTta was a nobody until she got her hands on a bottle of bleach and protools. this is a fact. frankly, i don't even understand what all the hating is for, aside from the apparent cult thought that two female musicians cannot exist in the world simultaneously.



  39. 39

    Xtina all day fuck the nazi whore lady gaga and everything her and her fans stand for



  40. 40

    omfg PROOFREAD your posts you illiterate dumbass.



  41. 41

    So what is she has a great voice? That isn't enough to make good music. I find her to be extremely boring, contrived, scripted and — always, ALWAYS late in the game. Whether she means to or not, she's always riding on someone else's coattails because she's never first to the plate. I would not call her success monumental. In fact, if she didn't come out with something new every few years, she would be forgotten and we wouldn't miss her. Her new single is painful to listen to. It's clear she is trying VERY hard to be mainstream. I am sick of her talking about her "confidence" and "sexual awareness" — and I'm sick of looking at her made-up face. What was/is so appealing about Britney is how genuine and real she is, even through her meltdown she was always honest about her identity and didn't try to be someone she's not. Christina will always be second to someone better and more popular. A good voice only gets you so far…



  42. 42

    Re: HungUpBoyToy – Please HungUpBoyToy, this is not Lady Gaga's style. It's Madonna's style. Please don't claim any of Madonna's creations on Lady Gaga. Madonna created Lady Gaga…point blank period. Everyone says "She's copying Lady Gaga" when in reality, everyone tries to copy Madonna. Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Christina…They all are Madonna wannabes, none of them are looking at Lady Gaga, if your name is HungUpBoyToy, you are a Madonna fans and should know this.



  43. 43

    well said, Christina.



  44. 44

    Maybe one day she'll come back down to earth…she sounds incredibly superficial…she sounds like the reason her friends in high school gave her a hard time-she's acting like a diva. Then she wonders why. Oh well, maybe one day you'll realize the world doesn't revolve just around you and your family. I hope- for your sake. Really, I do.



  45. 45

    Re: montrealer2009 – Stop it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This attitude is one Christina has always had…Check an interview from 2003 or any Xtina interview. She's always been like this…Christina has been emulating Madonna's confidence in interviews since the beginning. Gaga and Xtina constantly try to be Madonna, too bad they ain't gonna get that far…Talent and a great voice only get you so far. You think Madonna made it this far because she has all the talent in the world? No. She made it this far because she's smart, can spot trends years in advance, constantly evolves with the times while always bringing something fresh and new to her music and looks. Everyone else is walking on a road Madonna paved 20 years ago.

  48. 48

    The Lord GoGo fans must be horrified of Christina!

    Christina Aguilera can sing circles around Stephen Germonatta! The Britney fans tried to squash her but they couldn't! The GaGa fans will try to squash her but they can't! When you have "Talent" you don't have to marry K-Fed and shave your head bald or Wear dumb ass outfits 24/7. If Lord GoGo is so hot then why did Taylor Swift and Susan Boyle sell more albums then she did last year with not even half of the publicity. Google Grace Jones, Patti Labelle, David Bowie and Roisin Murphy to see how original your Lord GoGo is.



  49. 49

    Re: goodtasteishardtofind
    Which was paved by Barbra Streisand, Cher, Nancy Sinatra, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross, Deborah Harry, Donna Summer, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, etc. before that.



  50. 50

    omg she looks so stupid. She is really getting uglier the older she gets… wtf is that hair? not cute. not fierce. just lame.



  51. 51

    WOW… lookin fierce!!… rock it bitch!!!!



  52. 52

    Seriously. She's all of 30 and she's got it all figured out. Pa-lease.

    Re: Assbleep – lmao that was good



  54. 54

    Re: getOffiTalready – and christina is a copycat of all of them. Oh let me say it in your language: CHRISTINA IS A COPYCAT OF ALL OF THEM!!! SHE DOESN'T HAVE HER OWN IDENTITY!



  55. 55

    everyone keeps saying shes copying gaga but no one lists anY specifics. HOW ON EARTH IS SHE COPYING GAGA?!!



  56. 56


  57. 57

    She is soooo trying to pull off lady gaga's look from the telephone video right before she picks up the phone in jail! Pathetic christina, PATHETIC!



  58. 58

    Re: getOffiTalready – She always used to copy britney! When Chrstina first came out she tried the whole hot, girl next door look and thats what Britney was doing! Now that Gaga is on top she is desperately trying to look and sound like her. What a loser, Christina needs to go away because she looks like a moron!



  59. 59

    Re: Chocolate_18 – Only because she is trying to pull off the lady gaga look! Open your eyes! Like I said she's trying so hard to go after gagas look in telephone when she's in jail!



  60. 60

    Trying DESPERATELY to look and sound like GAGA



  61. 61

    Re: sexyjocey – lady gaga has her hair in fucking curlers. how is a faux hawk anything like that? god forbid they both have blonde hair. why dont you go talk shit about rihanna and beyonce and them trying to be like gaga? i see more comparisons there than with christina. and how is she trying to copy gagas sound?! christina has talked about doing a futuristic sound long before gaga was relevant. and christina tried to copy britney back in the day? they got signed around the same fucking time. where were the comparisons between britney and jessica simpson? and mandy moore? there were none because they werent COMPETITION. christina is competition to britney because shes incredibly talented. and shes competition for gaga too because she can fucking belt out the tunes. so shut the fuck and go run scared.



  62. 62

    A lot of people are afraid of confident women- mostly because they have low confidence.

    I was never a big fan of her- besides her amazing voice- but I like her now. Looking forward to hearing the new album and reading her lyrics.



  63. 63

    i like her, but her speaking voice is annoying



  64. 64

    Xtina has been around for like a decade, she has longevity. Gaga has been around for like a year and a half, she may be the most popular popstar for this month but we don't know how long she's gonna be around.



  65. 65

    WHEN WILL AGUILERA BE ORIGINAL AND BE HER SELF!!!!!!!!! IM SO OVER THIS B*TCH AND NO IM NOT A GAGA FAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    TEAM BRIT-BRIT TILL I DIE F*C*ERZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  66. 66

    Re: heyitsrobin – um she may not have the coke can curlers in her hair but the similarities are there! And Britney came out in 97/98 I remember christina came out in 99! I bet you feel so bad ass dropping the f bomb in your post. Very mature of you btw! Pathetic, just like copy cat christina!



  67. 67

    Re: sexyjocey – my bad for dropping the f bomb everywhere. i just get very heated about this.



  68. 68

    She's Beautiful & Talented I can't wait for the new album and Tour :)



  69. 69

    She is not trying to copy the other whore!!!!!!! For god sakes people get off of it. She has had blonde hair since she started except a few months or so when she went dark haired. Big fucking deal!!! She is beautiful atleast when I look at her I don't think I might have nightmares like I do when I look at Gag Gag

    Learn the difference between "then" and "than." Otherwise you just come across as uneducated and moronic. Also periods and commas are your friends.



  71. 71

    omg she is 29 years olde act like she is on her 40s or 50s



  72. 72

    I love how everyone keeps on saying that she is copying gaga even though she has been in the business WAY fucking longer. Quit bitching everyone, gaga is so fucking weird, Christina does not dress up in crazy ass outfits that she calls 'art' and prances around acting like she owns the place. Unlike Gaga, Christinas music is actually organic, and she ::gasp:: has a voice! not all this computerized shit. I love christina with all my heart and everything, but everytime she comes out with a new album, she always has this "im so much older and mature" attitude. It'd be nice if she held off on that,waited like 15 more years and then tell us how wise she is. I get it, shes a mature woman and everything but she even said that at 21 wearing all this makeup and ratty hair in her stripped days.



  73. 73

    Does she have Coke cans in her hair?



  74. 74

    I guess because Christina has a Faux Hawk for a few minutes in a video and wears red lipstick Gaga can't now….I wonder who started this Christina and Lady Gaga copycat crap??Perez why don't you post photos of Christina at the 2003 Mtv Europe Award when she hosted. ..There was no Gaga then so who's copying who?



  75. 75

    HAAHAHAHHAAHA WHAT A FUCKING POSER!!!!! GAGA/MADONNA CLONE!



  76. 76

    "Xtina Speaks" who the FUCCK cares ?



  77. 77

    The tittle should be "Marilyn Manson speaks" instead of "xtina speaks"



  78. 78

    Christina will always have my respect because unlike 95% of internationally famous singers, she actually has a distinct, beautiful, talented voice. No autotune, no flashy costumes, no ridiculous paparazzi-attracting behavior needed. Can't say that about everyone.



  79. 79

    Christina Aguilera has always been boring to me - even with her constant "reinventing herself."



  80. 80

    HAHAHAHA what is she? like maybe 25? or so? honey wait til you hit your mod 30's…..woo hoo now thats a whole new level of sexiness!!!!! wink wink



  81. 81

    Re: GoodBoyNC – None of those women made as big and as noticible an impact as Madonna. I respect what you are saying, but Madonna never looked up to any of them except Nancy Sinatra. Cher is a good predecessor to Madonna but her fame and glory was based on singing with her husband Sonny Bono. Madonna made herself from the bottom up. She didn't have a husband to lean on who wrote all the songs she sang. Madonna's first top five hit "Lucky Star" was written entirely by her. I respect Cher, Barbara and everyone sel you mentioned, but Madonna has never cited any of them as her inspiration nor did she try to be them. Madonna's two biggest inspirations when it came to females were Deborah Harry and Nancy Sinatra. She only looked up to men like David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Elton John and Prince. She's said in many interviews that besides Deborah and Nancy, there was no female who she looked up to. They may have tip-toed a line, but Madonna bulldozed it into history.



  82. 82

    Shes gorgeous but shes wearing too much makeup.



  83. 83

    You can always tell the people w/only a H.S. education,

    Re: goodtasteishardtofind

    No I get that. Dude, everyone copies the Queen, what I meant is that she looks like Gaga, I don't know why, I just think the hair is Gaga, I'm in no way a Gaga fan, but Tina looks like a pretty version of Gaga. Gaga is way ugly, and a total rip off, of Madonna.



  85. 85

    Christina Aguilera is pop musics DIVA, don't you dare compare gaga to her. Xtina has more talent in her pinky than gag has in her whole manly body. GAGA IS THE COPYCAT, THAT IS QUITE OBVIOUS,SHE COPPED ROISIN MURPHY, MADONNA, AND XTINAS STYLE. hell, this Xtina thing made her a superstar so i get why the fans won't let it go, nobody knew her before this whole mess. She will be gone soon though… TICK TOCK TICK TOCK



  86. 86

    lol
    CHRISTINA AGUILERA IS NOT COPYING GAGA OR BRITNEY!
    wtf!!
    SHE IS THE BEST SINGER OF HER GENERATION!
    NO ONE CAN SING LIKE HER!
    SAYING SHES COPYING GAGA OR BRITNEY IS JUST MOCKING HER.
    COZ SHE DOESENT NEED TO COPY THEM, SHE CAN ACTUALLY SING!
    gaga cant sing like her, she just computerized, as well as britney.

    GO CHRISTINA !!



  87. 87

    What she lacks in personality she makes up for in VOICE—bitch can sing and I just wish I could listen to her on these chat shows but she's unbearably fake!



  88. 88

    Re: goodtasteishardtofind – so obviously everybody with blonde hair and red lips is a madonna copy while that look is copied from marylin monroe and she copied it from every random woman in the 20s and 30s… its called fashion. Get over it!



  89. 89

    Re: Assbleep – haha true!!



  90. 90

    she looks fed up with his comments like he's been doing the interview for 20 mins now lol



  91. 91

    Sorry Chrissy…Lady Gaga is the latest….and she sings and dances too…plus I like looking at her face better than yours….actuallly you're played out…I hope you saved some money for retirement….heard your album, really UNimpressed…



  92. 92

    SHUT UP! Your new song is far less then disappointing. You look like a washed up xerox copy of GaGa, in black and white. Hopefully the video has some legs to stand on. Can't re-start your career with a bomb! That's where "Not Myself Tonight" is heading. Oh and stop bagging on GaGa. She has done nothing to you. Keep your damn lips sealed!



  93. 93

    Look, I think Christina has a great voice, no denying, but she sits there acting like the second coming of Ghandi and that's when I had to click it. Just because she had a kid now she's all of a sudden the be all for everything. Just shut up and sing.



  94. 94

    If anyone is copying lady garbage its Kesha, why doesnt anyone bring that up?



  95. 95

    Re: goodtasteishardtofind
    Oh fuck you and Madonna, stfu about that old trick. Let her get her own publicity, oh wait she's washed up and has to resort to Brangelina like tactics of pretending to give a shit about third world orphans for attention. Joke and disgrace! The fact is even when Madonna was relavent, part of her appeal was the fact that she was controversial. Not on complete talent. And I'm not knocking Madonna's contribution to the music industry, but she is by no means the most talented in the industry and by means use pure talent to boost her popularity. You need to lay the fuck off.



  96. 96

    and furthermore, if you are confident in what your favorite artists is doing there would be no need for you to be on the attack like you are, give it up, find something more useful to do then going on these sites to bash other people. I go to these sites looking for info and chatter and i certainly dont go to articles of people i dont like just to bash them once again,

  97. FS says – reply to this


    97

    She's really copying Madonna's look from the film Desperately Seeking Susan. This girl is not original at all.



  98. 98

    Re: goodtasteishardtofind
    I never said Madonna looked up to anyone. Of course Madonna won't acknowledge her inspirations–she never has. Just because she was a bigger star than those listed doesn't mean her contributions to the music industry are much more significant. Madonna rode on the contributions these women made, but she came out at the right time. She had MTV to broadcast her image to the rest of the world, something that was unprecedented. She had brilliant producers and co-writers, plus the best PR team in the world. All that "working from the ground-up" myth you're spewing is pure bullshit. Nearly everyone before Madonna's time had to work their way up, and they had to face a lot more obstacles. And I really don't see how influencing the Britneys and Beyonces is anything really positive. Madonna is the original "image before talent" superstar, and that is really all we have now, thanks to her. If anyone made a bigger contribution, it is Streisand. Love her or hate her, but she challenged sexism, standards of beauty, anti-semitism, and is one of the first female entertainers to be successful in all mediums of entertainment, from TV to movies to music to Broadway, which is what nearly everyone including Madonna have tried to do.



  99. 99

    now i love me some xtina, and have ever since she came out, but after watching this video… i'm willing to bet she's a bitch in person. she seemed like she was trying too hard so say something good, and what came out wasnt good at all, just repetitive and scripted, in a way, like she coached herself on her answers beforehand. just a little awkward. i love the girl's voice tho



  100. 100

    SHE IS THE BEST!!!!
