Christina Aguilera's "Not Myself Tonight" video may not have been as highly anticipated as Lady Gaga's "Telephone", but we think it still warrants some discussion. The reactions to the clip have been on opposite sides of the spectrum, with some considering it a desperate plea for attention and others flocking to the Church of Aguilera faster than you can say "And if you don't like it, fuck you."
Is she trying too hard to be like Gaga, or are people too quick to compare anything to Gaga? Do the blatant homages to Madonna's "Express Yourself" and "Human Nature" come off as well-intentioned, or does it just seem like Xtina's team has run out of original ideas? And last but not least, would a more subtle or creative approach been preferential to the over-the-top sexuality in the video, or does it match with the song's general vibe?
These are just a few of the questions the video brought to mind for us, and we're sure you'll catch on to a few things we didn't. Overall, what do you think of the video? Is it a hit or a miss?
