By now, you’re probably aware that the new Christina Aguilera bares a startling resemblance to the new “next big thing in electro-pop,” Lady Gaga (a.k.a. “You know, that one girl … the blond one … no, not Robyn. I think she’s foreign or something. No, not Peaches. No, not DJ Rap either”). And you were probably aware of this without even knowing who Lady Gaga was. Such is the power of the Interweb.
But in the rare case that you are positively, totally mystified by all the chatter, well, there’s a side-by-side comparison in the right corner of this story: a promo photo of Gaga is on the left, a still from Xtina’s 2008 VMA performance on the right. As you can see, there’s plenty that’s similar between the two — the bangs, the long blond hair and, of course, the penchant for lightning bolts drawn on or near the eyes. The fact that Gaga has been rocking this look for longer than Aguilera has plenty of folks in the blogosphere up in arms, primarily because they have nothing better to do with their time.
Of course, there are plenty of folks in the MTV Newsroom who see it the same way — good men and women who are outraged that we have not taken a stand and called Christina on her shenanigans. So, I drew the short straw and was forced to type up this missive. And in my further quest to shirk responsibilities, I’m asking you, our loyal readers, to sound off.
Is this a big deal? Did Aguilera totally go Gaga with her latest look? Let us know below … oh, and make sure to check out Exhibit B in our case against Christina.
