Christina was returning from a four year absence in the public eye and was determined to reclaim her place in pop music from Gaga. They were both strong willed, and that is where all the trouble began. Five years ago Christina Aguilera and her team were prepping for what they believed would be a legendary rollout for album number four, Bionic. It had been a while since Aguilera had released any new music after 2006’s Back To Basics. In the eyes of Aguilera, her label and managers, there was no doubt Bionic would return her to a throne that she had never quite ascended to.
In a Billboard magazine cover story profile, Aguilera came off as cocky, if not a little uninformed of her place in pop music in 2010. “There’s no proving element to me,” she adds at one point in the lengthy interview. “At this point in my career, I’m over any and all weird comparisons or negativity.”
Those “comparisons” were unfortunately to Lady Gaga. In 2010 there was no pop star more provocative, shocking and talented than Gaga. She rewrote,for a short period, how pop stars should act in order to win fame. For three years there was no one who could touch Gaga’s place. In Aguilera’s absence, many other pop stars had come into music quite suddenly. Katy Perry, Kesha, Marina and the Diamonds, were all on the verge of something very big in the summer of 2010. The future was bright and pop music as a whole was dramatically changing. These girls were a new brand of pop: weird and sexy. Critics and fans embraced them.
Christina Aguilera was not so lucky.
Tinder spokeswoman Hilary Duff has a new album “Breathe In, Breathe Out” being released soon and in order to get your coins she’s releasing it in an innovative~`way through Fanjoy. The album is being packaged as a “care package” which includes a physical copy of “Breathe In, Breathe Out”, a t-shirt, some lip balm, a tattoo set and a ‘personal letter’ from the Duff herself.
Fanjoy is a service that allows artists to pick their favorite brands or items to ship to fans in new packages every few months. Hilary’s will be a one time only deal, and unless she steps her ass up in promo, she’s probably not going to sell very many. This is a bit disappointing when I think about a what bop “Sparks” is and how easily the song could have really been a hit if she had a) performed it live on TV and b) released a video that wasn’t an ad for a dating website. I mean, shit this year she’s had some of the best style and music of her career.
But enough of my grouching, let’s get to WHAT’S IN THE BOX!!!
