Finally! We can agree with her on something!
The still bat-shit crazy and all-so-nonconformist M.I.A. was surpisingly lucid when she recently discussed collaborating with CloneTina Aguilera on her new album, Bionic, and was equally as disappointed as us when the diva chose to mimic the Sri Lankan rapper's style instead of be herself!
“Elastic Love was the first track I recorded actually - even before I started working on my own album. It’s the one I made in-between taking time out and having a baby and starting mine. Born Free was the first song I wrote for my album and that’s so weird now. I look back at the time and I wrote such a nice cute song for Christina - then the next song I wrote was Born Free. Other people were involved who I respect like Peaches and it was like a sea of women coming together to write this new thing. Christina had also had a baby, you know, so it was kind of an interesting situation.
I really thought I was going to be able to go in there and get her vocals on to the next level and she didn’t want to do it. She was like ‘You might think that’s great because it’s not what you do, but to me I’m really bored of it. It’s interesting getting to work with people who can do things vocally that you can't… but yeah I only heard the song for the first time when everyone else did.”
Ouch - it sounds like the final product really UNDERWHELMED her!
We think that her sentiments are SHOCKINGLY on the same page as pretty much everyone - how unusual from her! Usually she'd be going against the norm just to be controversial!

While being interviewed on The Jonjay and Rich Show, Valerie Bertinelli revealed Christina Aguilera was mean to her during a brief meeting in 2004.
"Christina Aguilera, I met her and she was so mean to me. I thought you know what, forget you. She's too young to be blowing people off. She went to a Van Halen show and I went to go say hi to her. My son was up there, and she's like, 'Yeah, okay, bye'."
As I walked away I said to my friend, 'Did I just get dissed by Christina Aguilera?' and she said 'I think you did!'"
Don't feel bad, Valerie! Just look at what Clonetina has become.

We interrupt our coverage of KStew's Lez-Gate to bring you this bulletin:
Christina Aguilera likes the ladies!
In a recent interview with the U.K magazine Company, Xtina steps away from talking about her horrid music to discuss her body image and the image of women everywhere. In the midst of that, she let this fun little tidbit slip:
"I feel sexuality to be very empowering. I think men love to believe that they own our sexuality, so if a woman represents herself in a sexual way, people think, 'Oh it must be for a man.' But men don't have the right to own our sexuality. If I want to be sexual, it's for my own appreciation and enjoyment! That's why I like to talk about the fact that sometimes I am attracted to women. I appreciate their femininity and beauty."
We're sure there are loads of ladies who are happy to hear you say that!
How very progressively
lezzie feminist of you! But don't call her that (or the other thing) because Xtina isn't into labels. She's her own person. An individual. No labels.
So what else would you like share with us, Clonetina?

So many Xtina haters. How to reach out to all of them…
Girl found a way!
No one seems too interested in Christina's new single, new album or "new" look. In fact, we think we are all in agreement that Floptina just needs to give up now.
But the girl is a fighter, as one of her earlier BETTER songs suggested, so she decided to tell the world exactly how she felt, with her shirt.
As she was leaving an after-party for the MTV Movie Awards last night, Clonetina was sporting a nifty tank top with the following message: "If You Don't Like It, Fuck You." (That's a lyric from Not Myself Tonight.)
As you know, we don't like it, but rather proceed with your suggestion, we're just going to continue to remind you how much you SUCK!
Wonder what her next shirt will say in response!

First step to recovery is admitting you are a copycat.
Good for you, girl!
Christina Aguilera, having spent the better part of the last two weeks denying that her video looks very familiar, finally admitted that she was copying at least one other pop music icon - Madonna.
In a "tribute" to the Material Girl, Clonetina makes several deliberate references to Madonna in her Not Myself Tonight video.
She has finally confessed:
"One of my favorite videos ever is 'Express Yourself' by Madonna which came across as really strong and empowering which I always try to incorporate through my expression of sexuality. I love the direct reference I made to Madonna with the eye glass moment and the smoke and stairs. I was paying tribute to a very strong woman who has paved the way before."
We love it too. We'd love it more that you are finally owning up to the fact that you stole from other artists!
Now, were you also trying to pay tribute to those who paved the way after you? Sure looks like it to us!
