8 Ways Christina Aguilera's "Not Myself Tonight" Ripped Off Lady Gaga

In case you haven't heard, Christina Aguilera's new video for "Not Myself Tonight" was released today and aside from making us want to go take a shower to scrub off this dirty feeling, the video made us wonder if she intended for the video to have so many references to Lady Gaga "Bad Romance" video.

Christina has caught flack before for allegedly copying Lady Gaga's style, but we never thought the similarities between the two would become so obvious. Christina wasn't always so blatantly derivative--are the similarities simply unintentional mistakes?

Click here to see all the parallels we found between the two videos.

    So only Gaga has the right to be shown from behind??? In her perfume you could see Christina from behind! With the same hair and make up like Gaga! Except that the ad was made in 2007 BEFORE GAGA EXISTED![/quote Not only gaga can be shown from the back those 2 pictures of lady gaga and christina aguilera are showing that Bad Romance the video made before Not Myself Tonight had Lady Gaga going to a man in a bed waiting for her and Christina Aguilera did the same thing.

    I'm a huge Gaga fan, like really a huge one and love Christina at the same time and even I find these comparisons pathetic, both of them are successful and talented in their own way.

    Everyone is a copy of something else.Kids realize this so you can get over the hump, Of yea after prom life just goes down hill from them, Christina is just too proud and is trying to hard, she could have done better but there you go she listened to her son and her husbands, they gave a wonderful influence

    [quote=Miss Jordii..x]Exactally :D iloveyou Christinaa :) "not myself tonight" doesn't have any meaning: lyrics are so lame. There is nothing! That song sounds like she is masturbating! And It's like i've heard the melody 1000 times before. and the FACT that Christina is copying Gaga, is just sad! Christina: GET UR OWN IDEAS! Lady Gaga is Unique, beautiful, Fresh! She's the reason why I listen radio! She's propaply the only artist who has new ideas by herself!

    lmfao its only extremely obvious that christina was trying to make fun of lady gaga. like seriously, christina has thrown lady gaga under the bus in interviews and to the press. even lady gaga said herself that she knows all the horrible things christina said about her. christina wants to show her up.

    So ridiculous! In one thing she's right about this song, it's just like her at this moment. She's "Not being herself" tonight, tomorrow, yesterday...I like some of her songs, but the truth is that besides she's "doing Lady Gaga" now, she used to be a Britney Spears copy. She should be shame of herself! I imagine what her son and husband will say about this video. I'm already seein' her son asking why she's kissing a woman or is been touched by other men that clearly it's not his dad...poor kid!

    No, it's called Christina ripped off Madonna's Express Yourself and Human Nature videos and GaGa rips off Madonna all the damn time. Christina didn't rip off GaGa, they ripped off the same damn person (Madonna).

  • Tyler
    Tyler

    Um Lady Gaga has been copying Madonna with the whole fashion and shock thing since she first bust on the scene, so I challenge any pop artist of today with originality. Plus, it's just a music video, who cares who copied who, this isn't junior high, move on to more important worries.

  • roger
    roger

    It's just a matter of time that people will realize how unoriginal Lady Gaga is. She's copied from Seven (a female group), Grace Jones, and many more. I do give her credit for copying something and putting the "interesting" factor to it. Anybody who thinks "I want your ugly, I want your disease" line as poetic is plain crazy. Sorry, Cindy Lauper. No wonder you're not longer in business.

    Kmom14 With all the violence against men she and Gaga promote in their videos and tours why not have a little violence against women. Don't want double standards now do we.

  • KMOM14

    I have to agree it seems like Christina is copying Lady GaGa which is sad. Christina is the veteran performer with much more experience and talent and she should be leading the way out of over relying on over-sexualized and disturbing image to shock to get your attention. I am very disappointed in her. The bondage images are "new", but they are also sick and degrading to women and her dressing in them for this video is not condoning violence to women, it is promoting it She is almost 30 and could show the world that you can still be Mom, almost 30 and be sexy without being trashy and bring the focus back to where it should be - her immense talent and voice. I was so put off my the images in the video and distracted by them I really couldn't tell you if the song was any good - only recall just enough that when I hear it on the radio I will switch channels as it will just bring back the sick images in the video.

    wow this is so over thought ! and the last pic is bullsh*t. both of them are two different people ... i wud love it if ppl wud just cut the crap

    Honestly, this only proves that Gaga in some ways copies Christina. You might be saying "huh?" Well, I'll explain, see that photo of Christina wearing a white dress while sporting huge frizzy hair, and pale kind of geisha meets goth makeup? Well, she's had a very similar look either on stage, out in public, or in other videos for a long time. One example would be the video for Lady Marmalade, where she's taking every part of her look to the extreme. Both have tried their hand at the Marilyn Monroe look, as well. And, to be honest, I don't find Lady Gaga physically attractive at all, while Christina has looked pretty good in some of her videos.

    ummm, U are getting tired of Lady gaga dont speak for everyone else..of course styles repeat themselves and im not saying that christina is copying lady gaga(obviously tabloids are trying to rise up tension between fans and the 2 artist) but lady gaga sheds new light on the whole crazy outfits and avante garde look. In my opinion christina should have made her comeback the "christina way" that way she can stay with her originality and all this comparison wont happen...thats what happens when artist just do whats current and whats supposedley popular.

  • jen1878
    jen1878

    There are similarities but it is true some parts are copied but I prefer Lady Gaga to Christina like I prefered Britany to Christina when they first came onto the music scene! Clearly Christina still wants to show the world she has still got it so by doing that she wants to copy a music sensation because even though Christina has a fabulous voice she wants to come back with a raunchy side because her comeback single after having her baby was a flop!!!

  • Jason Scott Breniser
    Jason Scott Breniser

    OK. Christina was burning clothes, Gaga was burning a man. Christina is more sexual and focused on Fetish. Lady Gaga's concept for bad romance is completely different. I think people are confusing the two, because both video's are absolutely FABULOUS!

  • Adamah Matayu
    Adamah Matayu

    Ok, maybe a couple of things you can compare but the rest is just you being silly!! If she really copied anyone in this video its more so Madonna then anything and Lady Gaga bit off from Madonna so who cares!! Not much is original anymore just how you take something thats been done before and make it your own!!! Also, Christina probably wanted the many comparisons in order to garner attention as the song on a scale of 1-10 is a 5..meaning nothing special but its ok!

  • Al Gore

    Christina's work is a frickin' mess. She is just all over the place. Gaga's work has an integrity to it--a consistent point-of-view. In fact, Gaga's work is a parody of Xtina and her type. Now with Christina following--as usual--she is actually parodying herself. Only thing is she doesn't realize it. Classic.

    Really? These are two different concepts. I can find like 40 music videos that have these exact poses in the world of Pop Music. I suppose you don't know that Gaga borrowed this concept from 2001 Space Odyssey? This is just stupid! Gaga is not the first to do anything! But no doubt she's an amazing innovative creature, but seriously you are just being ridiculous!

    That's the funniest thing I have heard all day, Lady Gaga is on a higher level than Christina as far as creativity, talent, and writing her own songs, and also writes songs for other artists, she cannot compete even she is trying very hard. Am I missing something? Did Christina put a telephone on her head or is she wearing a red lace outfit with a veil? This is such a joke. Stop with the comparisons. There's room in the industry for both of them. We should be happy that there's two great talents out there entertaining us.

  • Items90

    I just don't see the comparisons. It's almost laughable. Just because their blonde and show sexuality in a video and they're not wearing "everyday clothes"? Then I guess every music artist is trying to be like someone else. Christina has done something different with every album. I sure Gaga will do something different with her next album...

I don't doubt that LG has talent, but don't compare her voice with that of a soprano (Christina)
