    CHRISTINA AGUILERA @ POWER 105.1 While most of this year seemed rather empty for her, Christina Aguilera seems to be slowly but surely transitioning into a new part of her era. Following her GRAMMYs wins, the singer released a music video for her latest two singles, 'Soap on Skin' and 'By The Weekend', which gained a lot of attention, reached over 110m views and helped both songs peak inside the top 10. A few months later, the music video ended up nominated for 2 VMAs out of the total 3 Christina got. Now, during this metamorphic phase, the singer decided to visit a few r ON HER FAVORITE SONG FROM "DESPERATELY SEEKING CHRISTINA": "Oh, don't ask me that [laughs]. It's hard to choose one! All of them feel like the best material I've ever put out, honestly. But if I really had to pick a song, I would probably pick 'Where Is She?'. I would describe it as the torch song of the album. At that point, Chris, the character, is long gone, as if the ground swallowed her, and the emotional impact is because of the hurt her family feels. So, in a way, the narrative switches from hers to her family's. They go through a rough patch and they seem to try to find reasoning in the nothingness left behind by their mother, but all they can find is more hurt and pain. You know, the tone of the song goes from an angry one to a desperate one and then it's just a back and forth. I really couldn't be more proud of the song's outcome." ON THE "I GOT THE DRIVE" VIDEO: "Yeah, I like to call it the moment when everything changed. It might also be my favorite single release of all time. I remember when I decided to make it the lead single and I was so excited to put the song out in the world because it was something so different from '1 Eye Open'. It was some sort of innovation for me, to go from upbeat pop-ish songs to this 'heavy' R&B jam that talks about how a woman who has to do everything she can to keep her family afloat and then has her life ruined after she thinks she finds love again. The video took a while to get done right, but I am proud of the final product. I felt like I was working on the first page of a new chapter in my life and would you look at that [laughs]!" ON HER WEDDING: "It might've been one of the best moments of my life. You know, Matt and I have been engaged for a long time now. A wedding was going to happen. But both of us got so busy with work and we kept delaying it and delaying it and delaying it... until, one night, he told me we should do it. And, I don't know why or how, it just felt right. So, we planned it and it finally happened, on October 5th. We are going to drop more pictures and videos and stuff, but I just wanted to keep things private for a little more, you know. Keep the wedding our secret. And I wanted to be the one to release them to the world, not some gossip publication." Voting for VMAs is open now!

    CHRISTINA AGUILERA @ Z100 While most of this year seemed rather empty for her, Christina Aguilera seems to be slowly but surely transitioning into a new part of her era. Following her GRAMMYs wins, the singer released a music video for her latest two singles, 'Soap on Skin' and 'By The Weekend', which gained a lot of attention, reached over 110m views and helped both songs peak inside the top 10. A few months later, the music video ended up nominated for 2 VMAs out of the total 3 Christina got. Now, during this metamorphic phase, the singer decided to visit a few r ON WORKING WITH EMMA WESTENBERG: "Emma became a dear friend of mine in the past few months. We met at some sort of event when I was still working on my album and we laughed the whole night. Then, the morning after, I actually looked up her work and I was really impressed. So we had dinner once, talked about our artistic visions and stuff and we bonded in the most beautiful way. Sadly, when it came to directing, scheduling conflicts happened and we ended up not working together as much as I wished. Until I asked her to direct the second part of 'Double Feature' and we made an amazing pair, I won't lie. Her energy is so infectious and she is really committed to her art." ON HER FAVORITE NOMINATED VIDEOS: "Oh, my! Well, that's a good question [laughs]. I feel like, lately, we've had such a burst of gorgeous videos, the VMAs just can't do all of them justice anymore. Like Ariana's 'white ferrari', Miley's 'Generation', Rih's 'Dying Light'... all of them are really fantastic videos that got no recognition, for some reason. But, out of the ones that got nominated, I really love 'Preacher'. It might be one of the most beautiful videos I've ever seen. The shots are otherworldly, it feels like watching an art exposition come to life. And the song is just as good, gosh, I love it so much. I also think 'Casanova' is a perfect video. Yes, it is very controversial and sultry and stuff like that, but it just shows that Britney knows how to put together a song with a video." ON WHY SHE IS NOT PERFORMING AT THE VMAs: "You know, it takes a village to put a performance together. And right now, we are working on something... else. Something bigger. And we just don't have the time to do that. I know from the last time I was meant to perform at an awards show, which was at the GRAMMYs, the whole thing got messy and I lost the slot. I don't want to get into it, but that was a real spirit killer for me. So, from then on, I promised myself I wasn't going to book any sort of performance if I can't commit to it fully. Because I've learned that people in this industry just don't care. They'll act like your friend, give you the opportunity of your life and, as soon as they have to prove something to someone, take it just as quick." Voting for VMAs is open now!

    CHRISTINA AGUILERA @ KIIS-FM While most of this year seemed rather empty for her, Christina Aguilera seems to be slowly but surely transitioning into a new part of her era. Following her GRAMMYs wins, the singer released a music video for her latest two singles, 'Soap on Skin' and 'By The Weekend', which gained a lot of attention, reached over 110m views and helped both songs peak inside the top 10. A few months later, the music video ended up nominated for 2 VMAs out of the total 3 Christina got. Now, during this metamorphic phase, the singer decided to visit a few radio stations to talk about what's new in her life and reminisce on her career. Read the interview below! ON "DESPERATELY SEEKING CHRISTINA" 1 YEAR LATER: "Yeah, it's been one year since the album dropped and everything feels so... crazy. I remember working on the album a few hours before we sent the final mix to my label and I felt so nervous because, you know, what if they don't like what I did? Of course, we are here today so they liked the project, but I will never forget the way I felt right before I went in the meeting. It made me realize how much I love this album and how much I want it to succeed. And all the success and attention and all that jazz just makes me so happy because, you know, I wasn't planning for that to happen. I just wanted to put out something that I am proud of, so to have that and then the love from the public makes this really the best era of my life. ON ISSUES WITH 'DOUBLE FEATURE': "The video came together really nicely, now that I think of it. I'm saying this because we struggled so much with editing, I thought we were going to just scrap the whole project, honestly. The scenes just... wouldn't come along the way I wanted them to, you know. It felt like I was trying to put together a puzzle and all the pieces were scattered around New York, I don't know [laughs]. If I'm not wrong, it took us... four days to finish the editing? I believe we were also late a few hours because the video was meant to drop at 10am and it dropped at 8pm, but at least we got it out the way we wanted it." ON HER FAVORITE VIDEOS SHE WORKED ON: "I feel like, when I started the '1 Eye Open' era, I was really lost when it came to visuals. I didn't know what I wanted to express through the visuals, you know, I was in a weird place. But, then, I had a great vision for the 'Tango Alone' film and that was when I actually started to try to find my identity, I guess. Looking back, that whole project was so messy and underwhelming. I didn't think much of it when I was putting together the album, really, it was more of a distraction for the fans until the new single would come. But then I released 'Better Off Without You' video and I felt really accomplished with my visuals. For once! And that is when I said to myself 'you know what, maybe it's time for me to step it up'. And from there on, I put the videos as my second priority in my career, after my songs." Voting for VMAs is open now!

    Hands On Me at #70? the smell...
  5. So that perpetuates the toxic idea that bisexuality is not a valid sexuality, but rather a fetish / choice. There is no problem with him and his girlfriend doing whatever in their bedroom, but the song itself has a disgusting (and kind of douche-y) tone that makes it seem as if the girl chose to "swing both ways" for the sake of his own pleasure.
