11 Ways Christina Aguilera Ripped Off Lady Gaga in 'Not Myself Tonight'
Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance' video is the most popular music video on YouTube. No wonder Christina Aguilera wants to rip it off.
Xtina's new video for 'Not Myself Tonight,' a hypersexualized ode to reckless debauchery, bears striking similarity to several Lady Gaga videos, most notably the wildly successful 'Bad Romance.'
It's tough to blame her. She's old hat. She's been doing this for over a decade and she's, like, a mom now? Who could blame her for biting a few good ideas and claiming homage?
But then there's the straight up plagiarism. She denies this, of course, telling MTV "that in particular is not even worth wasting the breath to comment on. I've been around for more than a decade and I think my work speaks for itself."
Gross, mom. Read on to see the shameless mimicry for yourself.
Here's Aguilera's new video:
And here's Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance,' the video from which it most egregiously pilfers (along with 'Telephone' and 'Paparazzi'):
Here's our list of ways Aguilera is ripping off Gaga, which was painstakingly composed by a guy who'd be totally fine if he never had to look at another pleather jumpsuit again.
1. Look Into My Eyes.
2. Branded Bottles
3. Pointy, Uncomfortable Boots
4. Can't See Nothing in Gimp Pleather
5. Ouch, Sharp Glasses
6. Generic Bacchanalia
7. Wordy Rings
8. Bisexuality Outta Nowhere
9. No Pants With Tall Boots
10. Burn it to the Ground
It's not just the visuals. Even Xtina's new electro sound, complete with lite S&M and chopped and screwed vocals, sounds just like Lady Gaga. Where Lady Gaga's shocking imagery comes off as fresh and a little scary, Christina Aguilera's new look just seems icky and posed in comparison.
