Is This A Viral Video For Christina Aguilera’s Next Album?

It’s unclear who created these videos and why, but rumors are swirling that these very strange short promotional videos are teaser spots intended to virally hype Christina Aguilera‘s upcoming album, Bionic, which is slated for an April release. If they are, Lady Marmalade has certainly gone off in a whole new direction. For this album, she’s reportedly worked with Sia, Goldfrapp, Santigold, Ladytron, and M.I.A., so it’s possible that she’s going for some sort of out-there sound/feel that follows in the freaky footsteps of, say, Lady Gaga’s success being a professional singing weirdo. Either way, the videos sure are strange: symbolic, oozing white goo, some chick flailing around in the mud, and this lady licking a tree. What does it all mean? No clue. But if it’s designed to get our attention, it has succeeded. Check out the other odd video after the jump, and sound off in the comments on whether you think it’s Aguilera or not. Keep reading »

Quotable: Christina Aguilera Is Not Ashamed Of Her Dirrty Days

“No, I think looking back, I’m actually more pleased that I did it, because I got it out of my system. And I think it was very brave, in the face of a lot of closed minds. I try to motivate women and make them feel empowered by their sexuality — anything that a man likes to make a woman feel weak about.”

– Christina Aguilera, on whether she regrets her assless chaps-wearing Xtina days, in Marie Claire. Her new album, Bionic, is due out this spring. Keep reading »

How To Create A Visual Vignette To Bedazzle Your Home Decor

Sooo Christina Aguilera‘s home was featured recently in InStyle. (Check out her massive shoe closet here.) What really struck me, though, was her love of vignettes, which she used to display some of her treasured possessions like shoes and past performance costumes. I kind of like to think of vignettes as the adult version of dioramas, and who didn’t like creating those when they were in school? They’re perfect for occupying a little space in a room, on a table, or in a bookcase. After the jump I have some tips for adding a vignette to your decor. Keep reading »

Christina Aguilera’s Closet: Is This What A Girl Wants?

In NYMag.com’s latest monthly roundup of the fashion glossies, “The Best and Worst of October Magazines,” they’ve deemed this In Style photograph of Christina Aguilera in her closet as one of the best. Look, I’m all for ostentatious displays of wealth — I only wish I had more wealth to display ostentatiously — but this photograph is obscene and depressing. Does one woman really need this many pairs of shoes, so many that she needs a ladder to reach some of them? What hole in your insides are you trying to fill that that many shoes will never fill anyway? And her son standing there, looking at the camera, like, Can you believe how depressing this is?, made me experience the existential sadness of living in a celebrity-worshiping capitalist culture that prizes material wealth above, say, motherhood. Then I clicked on to the next page. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Christina Aguilera Gets The Opposite Of Dirrty On “Project Runway”


Where do starlets go when their career needs a boost? Apparently, “Project Runway.” Lindsay Lohan appeared as a guest judge on the show earlier in the season, and last night Christina Aguilera took her turn. Seeing her on the episode, sporting some serious bangs, reminded me why she’s been the pop star who’s totally fallen off the radar, even though she has the best voice. The girl is too darn nice!

Quick Vid: Christina Aguilera Cries Happy Tears

Well jeez, melt my cold, dead heart, why don’t you Xtina? The singer opened up to E! News about her relationship with her husband, Jordan Bratman, and describes how growing up without a positive male role model makes her appreciate him even more as a partner and father. Keep reading »

Le Tigre + Christina Aguilera = OK, Whatever

Pitchfork says the kick-ass electro-punk group, Le Tigre, is working on music with Christina Aguilera of all people. Presumably they’re doing music for X-tina’s new album, since JD Samson recently told NickyDigital.com that Le Tigre won’t be touring again “anytime in the near future.” (Kathleen Hanna has been teaching at NYU, Johanna Fateman recently had a baby, and JD Samson has been DJing with a group called MEN.) Oh, poo. Well, at least we’ll hear Christina get their beats dirrty. But still…what’s next? Ani Di Franco and Miley? Cowboy Junkies and Taylor Swift? Ooh wait, that would be kind of awesome.

Christina Aguilera To Put Big Boobs To Professional Use

According to Variety, peroxided songstress Christina Aguilera will be starring in her own version of “Showgirls”: “Burlesque.” Watch out “Striptease”! Aguilera will play an “ambitious small-town girl with a big voice who finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club that appears to be right out of Bob Fosse’s ‘Cabaret.’” That’s weird. That’s the story of my life. (Call my lawyer!) The script was written by Steve Antin, brother of Robin Antin, who created the Pussycat Dolls, and Jonathan Antin, who does famous people’s hair. Twenty bucks says Aguilera’s character will work at Forty Deuce, home of that LA neo-burlesque to which they are referring. Luckily, like Demi in “Striptease” before her, Aguilera’s got the knockers for this thong, pasties, and feathers role. Let’s just hope she don’t have a “Glitter” on her hands.

Christina Aguilera’s Citizen K Cover Qualifies Her For 2008 Photoshop Awards

Christina Aguilera is nearly unrecognizable on the cover of the Fall/Winter issue of Citizen K magazine. One could peruse the full set before realizing the otherworldly looking blond is the pop-songstress, her facial features and body proportions rescaled, tweaked, and airbrushed into identity-altering dimensions. And these days, when it comes to the Photoshop awards, women are not the only contenders. Alongside Britney Spears, Madonna, and Jessica Alba, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt are getting the Photoshopped-into-oblivion treatment, too. Feminists have long said that women are held to ridiculous expectations when it comes to their looks — but nowadays it seems like men are being expected to look a lot more like robots than humans. So what do you think? Are men increasingly being held to the same scrutiny as women in terms of their physical appearance? Keep reading »

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of November 25th 2008

MUSIC

  • Guns N’ Roses Chinese Democracy
    Axl Rose’s anthemic rock voice still makes my panties wetter than the November rain. Chinese Democracy, inflated by all the hype and a very, very long wait, surprisingly lives up to its promise — even with the all new band line-up. “Better” has some of the sickest guitar squeals and “IRS” crunches the classic GNR sound. So, “This I Love” makes me think Axl wants to sing on Broadway, and his mid-life crisis frat bro meets Rasta look isn’t sexy, but the music is still solid gold. This is not an album GNR could have made in the ’80s when they were kids. It’s a bold, fresh, marvelous record that’ll bury Axl’s eccentricities and lift him up like the awesome rock star he truly is, even after all these years. Thanks for the free Dr. Pepper…and my new jams!
