    She lifted exact scenes from Madonna's 'Express Yourself': She 1) crawls on the floor to a saucer of...oil'? {Milk in the Madonna video} that she dumps down her back, 2) gyrates atop a 1920s Metropolis set piece with a monocle, and 3) simulates sex with a man on satin sheets.

    Also, from George Michael's 'Freedom': Sets her wardrobe on fire.

    There's something Gaga-esque about the feel of certain scenes: Trashy yet riveting But it's already being done by Gaga

    And she's actually doing a public service of sorts. Showing the world what real breasts looks like.
    I like the song. Think the video is close to soft porn at the end and does seem a bit desperate. And I am almost 100% positive that her breasts are not real.

Despite that, it still looks like she is just trying to be someone else.
    I dont really think she is a confirmist-her two previous CD's, Stripped and Back to Basics-she sort of marched to the beat of her own drum. I think this go round being a 30 year old mother she is trying to stay relevent as the top pop princess...althogu she always seemed sort of like an air head to me. Her Back to Basics CD was supposed to be 20's, 30's, and 40's and while she had the look of the WW II pin up girl down, the songs did not reflect how she described the CD. The first single sampled a song from the 60's LOL and most of the songs had no elements of those eras.

    I think she should just do what she wants but stop with the performance art and stop trying to sound intelligent-I know that sounds harsh but if you listen to her in an interview and listen to gaga, its emarrassing. No one can touch her voice and she needs to make that the focus of who she is and she will be fine.

    Here's a really good analysis of the video:

    In terms of overt sexuality, Christina set the bar with "Dirrty."

    I'm starting to like the song a little more after a few listens.

    She just tries way too hard. It never seems natural.

    Christine can out-sing every single other female artist out there. Why the hell does she think she needs to revert to things like this? Makes no sense.

    I don't get all the comments praising what a great singer she is, at least not when she sings live where she tends to over-sing. She's had flashes of greatness like the Cure for Haiti benefit, but most of the time the over-dramatic hand convulsions and the attempts to prove what a great singer she is gets lost in the shuffle of her obnoxious ad-libbing with phrases like "yeah, yeah, yeah" grating on my ears like nails running down a chalkboard. I'll never forgive her for butchering Etta James's "At Last." Someone else mentioned it seems like she tries too hard, and that is the opinion I've always had of Christina Aguilera. She doesn't come off as natural to me; almost everything she does seems so forced. This new video and song screams desperation from an "artist" pleading not to be forgotten. Strange that she went to this extreme from her last "Back to Basics" album. Maybe she should title this album, "Back to Trashy" then.

    ^Yes true indeed, she is queen of vocal masturbation

    But the rest of her voice is simply incredible, when she's not oversinging...love her tone most of all..

    I listened to Beyonce's version of At Last and her live cover of The Way we were at the Streisand tribute and those were

    The funny thing is that if you watch youtube vids of her from before she was famous...she does the same type of stuff-oversinging, hand gestures, ad libs...and I am talking about at 6 years old. It is actually hilarious to watch (and I mean that in a good way). So really-its not like she started doing that suff after she became famous.

    Its not just her voice that makes her stand out-other singers like Carrie Underwood and Mariah in her prime are vocally better than her IMO. But her interpretation of songs is really something. The one I posted in the beginning of this thread-I love you Porgy-my jaw was literally on the floor. I think she deserves all the credit she gets for her voice.

    She's trying too hard.

    That video just looks very desperate.

    I think Christina Aguilera has great vocal ability, but she uses too much melisma and is usually definitely not one for subtlety. I definitely prefer her to most pop stars today and I liked this performance of hers:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KEAD2dzDRE, but I do wish she'd reduce the melisma.

    I'd like that video better if she were feeling more like this in it.

    No I don't think so, I am not talking about singing talent I am talking performance talent.

    Madonna, Janet and Paula were masters at the performance part of singing! Christina is a fantabulous singer but that's where it ends.

    I would rather have a great performer than singer for the most part.

    Madonna and Janet are amazing performers, but I never though Paula was an especially powerful performer. She's a great dancer, but I don't think she has the charisma of the other two.

    However, as much as Christina's melisma can annoy me, I enjoy watching her equally to Madonna and Janet. While Christina might not be as great a performer as Madonna or Janet, they don't have the voice that Christina does, so it's all equal to me.

    What a shame that Christina's "Bionic" album is a flop.

    What an amazing voice. Gaga does not even come close.

    She has a simulated orgy in a church like setting in her video, which I find to be completely disrespectful. Just because you disagree with a religion doesn't mean you have to resort to stunts like that. Yes she has every right to do whatever she wants, but I also have the right to find it offensive. But hey at least she doesn't kill people like Lady Gaga does in her videos.

    Some of these videos get worse and worse. I remember when Britney's videos were shocking to some and now you have videos like Lady Gaga where she represents sex as violence and power. Where do you go from there? There's mass murder in her videos. It's disturbing. Not only that but the upside down crosses in Lady Gaga's videos and the illuminati type images are obvious she is just trying to get attention.
