Akon: “Christina Is Copying GaGa”

Published: Tuesday 13th Apr 2010 by Sam

Following hitmaker Claude Kelly’s recent claims that comparisons between Christina Aguilera and Lady GaGa are ‘crap’, GaGa’s mentor and label head Akon has given his own two cents on Aguilera. Speaking to VIBE, the ‘Smack That’ singer’s comments are sure to get tongues wagging. Check out what he had to say after the jump…

On GaGa/Aguilera Comparisons

“Aw man, that’s not even any competition,” Akon tells VIBE. “You are actually giving Christina too much credit. She always had her cool little look and way about how she went about things. But soon as Gaga came out everything switched up. Christina stepped out of her own shell to become something different. And the crazy thing is Christina is really talented. She has unlimited range when it comes to singing. Her voice is out of here. I just think she just needs to believe in herself more. I think sometimes she gets insecure because of all of the success Gaga has had not realizing that she was already successful before Gaga came out.”

Akon hopes Aguilera’s upcoming album Bionic showcases more of her dynamic voice and less of the up-tempo, electro pop bad-girl anthems typified by her latest single “Not Myself Tonight.”

“Christina shouldn’t have anything to prove or anyone to compete with,” he continues. “I miss the old Christina Aguilera. I like the old one better than the new one. Honestly, Gaga and Christina could probably get together and do something that’s amazing. But that’s impossible if they are both trying to do the same exact thing musically.”

Akon sure didn’t hold back! Indeed, his words – though controversial – are most certainly food for thought.

  4. WTF April 13, 2010

    How can queen christina copy someone with no talent? This b**** gaga WILL NEVER top Christina’s talent, or accomplishments. This is why people don’t like him/her. GIMMICK

  5. AKON…STFU U DONT KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT! April 13, 2010

    THATS COMPLETE BS!!!

    Christina Aguilera has ALWAYS been an eccentric creative artist! Akon doesnt have a clue what hes talkin about. Look at Christina Aguileras video for “FIGHTER”! Was there a Lady Gaga then? NO! When christina Aguilera wore the big afro to the mtv awards YEARS ago, was there a gaga then?

    Lady Gaga always has been and always will be NOTHING more than a more extreme version of Xtina! Anyone whos old enough to remember xtina during that time knows this! All you lil 16 yr old homos who follow this gaga chick know nothing! Just like Nicki Minaj is nothing more than a more extreme version of Lil Kim!

    The only problem is they dont pay homage to the ppl they steal swagg from! AKON knows NOTHING about xtina! If he knew better he would NOT have said that.

    Just look back at Xtinas videos and style. Things shes wore on the red carpet during stripped. GTFOH Akon and the rest of you brain dead gaga stans

  6. Ryan April 13, 2010

    It’s the truth!

  7. Blasian April 13, 2010

    Oh no he didn’t! And who in the Hell is Gaga trying to be like Madonna,Grace Jones ,M.I.A, Mercury and Queen and list goes on and on people are giving her a lil to much hype take the Crazy a** outfits away what do you have…..

    Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta also known as Lady Gaga is nothing but shock factor!

  8. Kevin April 13, 2010

    This is b*******. Just because they both go for a pop sound means they’re “trying to do the same exact thing musically.”

    Akon just wants to protect one of Interscope’s biggest stars.

  9. myspace.com/jerelishere April 13, 2010

    Wow Gaga Done Started A Movement Yay I’m First For Now

  10. Rob April 13, 2010

    Ahha ha ha ha ha Akon is telling the truth. She trying to do futuristic s*** now to copy Gaga but its not working. Stay in your f****** lane Floptina! Just sing dammit your not Gaga!

  11. Anissa April 13, 2010

    Woah i love both gaga and christina and in christina’s defense she switches her sound on ALL her albums after all she takes a four year break between albums i love gaga and x-tina so i will not bash gaga to praise x-tina or vice versa but in the mean time akon needs to worry about his fading career and stop trying to garner attention i.e. Michael jackson anyway can’t wait for bionic#teamxtina#teamgaga#akonsiturassdown

  12. Ama April 13, 2010

    Christina did what Gaga is doing now 8 years ago with Stripped. ‘Dirrty’, ‘Fighter’… have Gaga stans conveniently forgotten the whole ‘Stripped era’?

    Christina is an accomplished artist and she doesn’t need to prove anything or copy some pretender to be successful. Christina has proved what she has to be in this business in the long term…. contrary to popular belief, the onus is actually on Gaga to prove that she has longetivity and that she isn’t some ‘flash in the pan’.

  13. Sarah April 13, 2010

    lol damn akon. you know you in for it now.

    on the flipside, he has a point. christina keeps coming out with these messages as if she has something to prove. she needs to stop feeding into all of the negativity and just do HER.

    she already gave the naysayers a taste of her medicine on stripped. it’s pointless to go further.

  14. stan April 13, 2010

    as much as i despise akon, these words are nothing but the truth:

    “I just think she just needs to believe in herself more. I think sometimes she gets insecure because of all of the success Gaga has had not realizing that she was already successful before Gaga came out.”

  15. DizzyGuy1985 April 13, 2010

    If you are a pop singer and a white female they compare you to Lady Gaga. Its really silly.

    Akon should be quiet though because everytime I see him at awards shows it looks like he has been flouring chicken all day. His hands are so damn ashy.

  16. DIVAZZ April 13, 2010

    AKON SHUT THE F*** UP!!!!!!! BOTH LADY GAGA AND CHRISTINA COPIED MADONNA.I DON’T THINK CHRISTINA IS TRYING TO COPY LADY GAGA,SHE IS JUST KEEPING UP WITH THE TIME.THERE WAS DANCE MUSIC AND ELECTRO POP BEFORE LADY GAGA.MADONNA’S “CONFESSION ON A DANCE FLOOR” WAS DANCE-POP AND ELECTRO-POP.LADY GAGA JUST USED INSPIRATIONS FROM THAT ALBUM.AKON IS JUST TRYING TO MAKE THAT B****! LOOK BETTER THAN CHRISTINA BECAUSE SHE IS SIGNED TO HIS RECORD LABEL.THERE IS SOMEONE THAT WILL BE COMING FOR LADY GAGA!!!!!!! THAT PERSON WILL COLDLY KNOCK HER OFF HER GAME.LOL HER IS STUPID GAGA DIDN’T INVENT ANYTHING SO DON’T FLATTER HER,PLEASE!!! SHE IS NOT THAT GREAT.HER VOICE IS GOOD,DANCING IS OK,AND HER PERFORMANCE SKILLS IS GREAT.SHE KNOWS HOW TO ENTERTAIN THE CROWD.PLUS SHE CAN ALSO PLAY THE PIANO.BUT SHE IS A GIMMICK.SHE DIDN’T COME UP WITH THE NAME GAGA NOR IS THE PERSONA SHE APPEARS TO BE.CHRISTINA CAN SING WAY BETTER THAN HER.AND CHRISTINA DID THE BAD GIRL THING FIRST WITH “STRIPPED”.LADY GAGA=GIMMICK.

  21. trevor April 13, 2010

    Christina Aguilera released her “Decade of Hits” album back in 2008 right when Gaga was making it big on the scene. Christina recorded futuristic songs then, hence her video for “Keeps getting better”. The new song Dynamite which were both on the Decade Of Hits album. Christina is not copying anybody, Christina has changed her style on each album. It puzzles me why Akon made such remarks, he almost sounds childish. Christina and Gaga are two totally different artist, yes gaga has great music, but there is more to gaga than just music. Her whole image sells. Christina has always sold, regardless of her image (which she changes every album). Image sells. Christina has the same image she has had since 2008 and all of a sudden everybody wants to say she has copied Gaga which is incorrect. (Yes she changes her image, but she hasn’t since gaga has been on the scene I guess if I go dye my hair blonde, get some Chinese bangs and put on a skirt I will be compared to Gaga as well..
    Both of these artist are talented, so I don’t why they are compared.

  22. KO April 13, 2010

    “She has unlimited range when it comes to singing.”

    WHAT? LMAO This couldnt be any furthur from the truth

    Akon just lost all credibility with this statement.

    But anyways, Xtina has always been a copycat, when debuted she was a Britney Spears clone, for “Stripped” she ripped off P!nk, during the “Back 2 the Basics” days she was a wannabe Soul/Jazz diva (A terrible one at that) Now shes all electro-pop? Give us more credit Xtina we’re not dumb.

    Every album you are a different person, always saying “This is the real me”. Xtina well what are you? Stop playing dress up and be this “artist” you keep saying you are.

  23. omzir April 13, 2010

    pfff… Akon writes his music from his ass… this man only sees things with a $ attached to it… Sure GAGA is a fashionista but honestly you won’t see christina aguilera outshining her own self… CHRISTINA AGUILERA has better music then GAGA.. anyone can put a mask on and be gaga… but it takes true talent to sing the chops that Aguilera has…

    Akon don’t you have some young girl to dance on right nah nah nah ?

  24. SOOS April 13, 2010

    Akon is just jealous 🙂 He is no one in the industry.

    Don’t care about him.

  25. kingnoah3000 April 13, 2010

    all i gotta say is wowwww…lol

  26. beyonce4ever April 13, 2010

    much respect to aguilera… people are trying to stir up things between gaga and christina when they are 2 very sweet and talented ladies!
    akon has no right to say that..

  27. Jay2010 April 13, 2010

    F*CK ! I am sorry, as big as the spot of GaGa is right now, Christina is HUGE and better NO competition! Aguilera’s voice would blow GaGa wigs away (I’m a huge fan of both though), GaGa has an unique style (talking about fashion & visual), but when it comes to music, it’s just about marketing, everybode love Pop & Dance so why can’t Christina do the same ? And Akon, boy GO SIT DOWN SOMEWHERE U AINT NOBODY IN THIS BUSINESS !

  28. JAMMY April 13, 2010

    CHRISTINA WAS OFFENDED WHEN GAGA FIRST CAME ON THE SCENE THAT PEOPLE MADE A COMPARISON BETWEEN THEM, NOW THE TROLLOP CHRISTINA IS COPYING HER AS GAGA SELLS….ALL THE ARTISTS FROM BEFORE GAGA’S TIME ARE COPYING HER! GAGA IS THE THING THESE DAYS AND TO KEEP FRESH THEY MUST FOLLOW!

  29. JAMMY April 13, 2010

    GAGA HAS A F****** AMAZING VOICE….CHRISTINA IS JUST ANOTHER FAKE STAGED DUMB BLONDE B**** WHO MIMES ALL THE TIME F*** HER!

    AKON HAS A LOT OF MAJOR PEOPLE SIGNED INCLUDING GAGA SO F*** ALL YOU SAYING HE DOES NOWT IN THIS BUSINESS!

  30. Clos April 13, 2010

    They really made a big out of nothing! He no way offended christina! He just gave his bias opinion! That is all it is an opinion! Nothing to fight over

  31. Ghetto Fab April 13, 2010

    Of corse Akon would say that. Gaga is signed under his record label. He would defend the artist on his label. Xtina is NOT COPYING Gaga. Gaga didn’t create Electo Pop nor Dance music nor did she start that movement. She just rode it like everyone else is doing now. It just happens to be what she does. Peopl are so stupid nowadays If you are a white pop star you are trying to be Gaga and if you are a black pop star you are trying to be Beyonce. As if these two are the ones that started it all. What did we do without these two?

    Akon needs to shut his crusty black ass up! Even if Xtina was copying Gaga’s sound she would have all rights to. Its a free country and she can sing whatever she wants. Those who don’t like it can f*** off. Xtina is back and i’m kind of glad she’s got all these haters talking. Makes for good promotion for the album. 2010 everyone will be BIONIC!

  32. DONTAZZ April 13, 2010

    I AM A FAN OF BOTH..AND THE ONLY COMMENT I HAVE IS THAT..I WANT CHRISTINA TO SING THIS TIME AROUND..LIKE SHE ALWAYS HAS….THE DANCE ELECTRO LANE SEEMS SO CALCULATED AND FORCED…SHE COULDVE COMBINED ALL OF HER LAST 3 ALBUMS..AND STILL CAME WITH THE HOTTNESS…SIGH OH WELL..WE SHALL SEE WHAT BIONIC HAS IN STORE!

  33. Mr.727 April 13, 2010

    What f****** planet is this auto-tune induce black son of a b**** talking about! GAGA was barely getting a period when X-Tina hit the scene ! Why is everyone an they mama talking about somebody is copying Gaga! She is a by product of Maddona, Grace Jones, Queen all in one! The s*** she is doing has already been done 80 times over! See the problem is the music industry is behind a conspiracy to f*** up the public’s prospective to as what real music is!?!?!? X-Tina been in the game 10 years, why the f*** would she want to emulate a b**** that walks around with a got damn Kotex for a hat? This is saying that a Lion cab fit in a 4×4 box, just not a realistic view of her musical prestige ! I have really lost respect for Akon black ass, he has to be the dumbest , black, refugee documented n**** alive! He ain’t even been in the game as long as X-Tina has to spew this idiot s*** from his mouth! I swear one day all this fake ass music is going to crash and burn! Why do people that don’t really have musical career worth mentioning talk s***???????

    As a music fan, I will continue you to support people that open their f****** mouth and sing!

    June 8th come on and show these h*** who is a real artist! Gaga is already played out, and the b**** ain’t hardly been out 2 years!! Get the f*** outta here, for real!!!!!
    He was high when he said this s*** ,str8 up!

  34. Raychel April 13, 2010

    Well said akon.

    He’s making a good point. Xtina was not always this way. she used to be sweet before she went away for ages. Keeps getting better video dosent even compare to what gaga does now, and before.

  35. hihihihi April 13, 2010

    B**** PLEAS

    RIHANAN DID S:O:S: B54 THESE H*** KNEW WHAT DACNE WAS

  36. RATED x April 13, 2010

    I’m not going to sit here and bash christina.nobody can deny christinas talents…she can sing circles around the majority of the singers out there.
    but, gaga is doing what christina is being trying to do since she first came out..
    christina may be famous but she was never a big star, bottom line.

    I do see the similarities in both artist..but we cant compare them to each other because both have different voice and different type of music style.

    why lady gaga got to be a b****? do u know her personaliy?..did she still from u?
    fine u guys think shes a gimmick, yall entile to yall oponions, but dont come on her calling her out of her name.

  37. h April 13, 2010

    …but it’s true.

  39. Steve April 13, 2010

    To be honest with you, I don’t think Christina really had much of a choice on her musical direction this time round.

    You look at whats selling at the moment and look at what’s not.

    This whole electro-pop sound is the ONLY music that the masses are really interrested in right now. I don’t really think people want to ‘copy’ Gaga but its the only way of securing a success comeback.

    Yes Gaga’s hot at the moment but give it a couple of years and everyone will turn their back on her to make way for the next fad.

    Dont get me wrong, i like what Gaga’s doing, however her whole gimmick is getting a little predicatble & recycled now.

    Christina will adapt to anything thats hot at the moment, a great tactic in remaining relevant in todays fickle society. Notice how great artists like Usher & Mariah were being branded irrelevant because they were sticking to R&B?

    How i see it is if christina didnt do a take the current sound then unfortunately, she’d have been branded a has-been aswell… (which probably isnt a great career move).

    To a certain degree Akon is right, but given the limited buying audience and everyone demanding electro-pop, it would have been pretty foolish to take this direction.

  40. HLove April 13, 2010

    I thing enough is enough………………
    People should stop comparing Gaga and other femal artis of today. What gaga is doing most of artist have done it already. Gaga she not the first person to do electro pop/dance music. People should look at all the other artis who have similer music as Gaga in the past e.g. Britney, Madonna, Janet, Jlo, Kylie and lot more. Their no dout that Gaga she talent but she did not invent music.
    This is somethig to think about …………… ( did you know must of Gaga music sound similer to Scissor Sister and Goldfrapp. if you don’t beive buy all Goldfrapp album and all Scissor Sister you see the diffence and remember all Scissor Sister and Goldfrapp been doing music before Gaga)

  41. Kenney April 13, 2010

    @ Mrr.727 F****** AMEND HALLELUHERD! Akon’s dumbass ain’t been out but for only a few years and he ain’t got s*** on xtina’s 11 years in the business, all her awards, grammies, concerts, acting skits, her first movie, all her tours, sold millions worldwide! Christina’s had bigger hits than Akon punk n**** a** has! Akon just hatin cause Christina’s BACK and taking all that attention away from Lady Gag-Me. Akon even said himself he could quit and live off that fake ass Madonna knockoff sell out!

  42. Steve April 13, 2010

    EDIT: *it would have been pretty foolish for her to not take this direction. ^^

  43. tan April 13, 2010

    OK …first thing GAGA more than likely use to look up to Xtina back in the day , so when GAGA came on the scene last year person thought it was Christina in drag so I don;t understand a year later after alot of albums sold, it is Christina who i has being in the business of dressing crazy is now being accused of copying this newbie, if GAGA had come with some music that was revolutionary and Christina did it will okay, but she is just doing what all the other artist have done before with a extra twist and things that some person might find shocking. At the end of the day we will see if GAGA is around 10 years from now, I am sure Christina will be from her voice is okay.
    I suppose person like Kelis ,Kelly Rowland who have done dance music and dressed wierd are they imitating GAGA since she has created this new genre of music … LMAO!!!!

  44. DIVAZZ April 13, 2010

    @RATED X SHUT UP!!!! SHE IS A B**** HAVE YOU SEEN SOME OF HER INTERVIEWS.AND DO YOU KNOW HER TO SAY SHE’S NOT.SHE SHOULD CHANGE HER NAME FROM LADY GAGA TO GIMMICK ATTENTION SEEKING S***.SHE TELLS HER FANS TO “DON’T HAVE S**” AS JUST TO GET ATTENTION NOT CAUSE SHE CARES FOR THEM.THE NEW VIRGINITY PLEDGE THING IS HOT NOW I GUESS,SO EVERYBODY WILL SAY THEY ARE VIRGINS.SHE KNOWS IMAGES SPEAKS WAY LOUDER THAN WORDS DO.CAUSE EVERYTHING SHE IS REVOLVES AROUND HER IMAGE/HAUS OF GAGA TEAM.IF IT WASN’T FOR THEM SHE WOULD BE NOTHING.JUST LIKE IF IT WASN’T FOR ROB(HER PRODUCER/BOYFRIEND) GIVING HER THE NAME GAGA SHE WOULD NOT BE ANYWHERE.SHE PROBABLY WOULD STILL BE PERFORMING IN NIGHT CLUBS.AND LIKE MILLIONS HAVE SAID LADY GAGA DID NOT INVENT POP MUSIC OR CLOTHES.HER STYLE IS LIKE MADONNA,KLAUS NOMI,FREDDIE MERCURY,DAVID BOWIE,GRACE JONES AND LEIGH BOWERY.I SEE NOTHING ORIGINAL IN LADY GAGA ONLY A COPY OF WHAT HAVE BEEN DONE YEARS PRIOR TO HER DEBUT IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY.TELL ME WHAT IS ORIGINAL ABOUT LADY GAGA.YOU CAN’T THINK OF A THING.THE GENIUS OF RECYCLING POP CULTURE AND MUSIC.I HOPE SOMEONE COMES AND KNOCKS THIS B****! OFF HER PEDISTOL,SHE DESERVES TO BE KNOCKED DOWN.SHE IS TOO FULL OF HERSELF RIGHT NOW.SHE WILL DO ANYTHING JUST TO STAY ON TOP OR SHOCK PEOPLE.

  49. SASHA April 13, 2010

    Hey folks, it’s almost the middle of April which means the music industry is reviewing the sales of their top artists. Here are the top selling albums in the world in 2010 as of April 9, 2010 and the breakdown of sales follow
    1 Lady Gaga The Fame + The Fame Monster 2,503,000 albums
    (200,000 sold in 2008 + 5,914,000 sold in 2009 gives a grand total of 8,617,000, expect it to reach 10 million by June. It is notable that the separate The Fame Monster EP is not included in this figure, the US accounted for 36% of the total sales and 21% in the UK, and therefore Lady Gaga can be termed Mega Star).

    2 Lady Antebellum Need You Now 1,733,000 albums
    (Grand total of 1,733,000 as it was released in 2010, the group is only known in the US though as it accounts for 95% of its sales).

    3 Sade Soldier of Love 1,711,000 albums

    4 Susan Boyle I Dreamed A Dream 1,637,000 albums
    (Add this to 6 million sold in 2009 for a total of 7,637,000, Susan sold 48% of her albums in the US and nearly 25% in the UK).

    5 The Black Eye Peas The E.N.D. 1,556,000 albums
    (The Peas sold 4,600,000 albums in 2009 for a total of 6,156,000 call that a Boom Boom Pow, of their total sales, the US accounted for 39% while it sold 30% of its total in the UK )

    6 Alicia Keys The Element of Freedom 1,384,000 albums
    (Sales after a December 2009 release were 1,030,000 for grand total of 2,414,000 for the piano lady; nearly 50% and 20% of the total was sold in the U.S and UK respectively.

    7 Michael Bublé Crazy Love 1,080,000 albums
    (Unknown in the urban audience but has sold 3,300,000 in 2009 for a grand total of 4,380,000 with only 1 single. Talk about a mega star. The US and UK both account for over 30% each of the album sales).

    8 Ke$ha Animal 907,000 albums
    (Its grand total is the same 907,000 as it was released in 2010. 60% of the album was sold in the U.S)

    9 Justin Beiber My World 2.0 884,000 albums
    (Yes in only 2 weeks, I expect it to sell well. 65% of sales come from the US)

    10 Rihanna Rated R 850,000 albums
    (1,019,000 albums were sold in 2009 as well for a grand total of 1,869,000. Rihanna sold 43% of her album in the US with the UK accounting for over 25%).

    11 Michael Jackson This Is It 803,000 albums
    (The icon sold 3,100,000 albums in 2009 after only 2 months of availability, its grand total now stand sat 3,903,000; expect it to reach 4 million by the first week in May).

    12 Taylor Swift Fearless 780,000 albums
    (Add this to 4,200,000 in 2009 and 2,200,000 in 2008 for a grand total of 7,180,000. Of this total 80% was sold in the US).

    Also Beyoncé sold 2,300,000 in 2008 and 3,200,000 and 543,000 albums in 2010, a grand total of 6,043,000, the US accounted for 46% of the album’s total sales and the UK claiming over 20%

    At the end of June when half the year has past expect many milestones. Lady Gaga will reach the 4 million mark (10 million in total) with Lady Antebellum and Sade at the 2.6 million mark. The Black Eye Peas will follow at 2.5 million (7.1 million total). Michael Bublé, Justin Beiber and Susan Boyle will range from 2 million to 2.2 million. (Michael would reach 5 million and Susan 8 million). Alicia will be at the 1.8 million mark (reaching nearly 3 million) while Ke$ha and Rihanna will approach 1.5 million (Rihanna will reach 2.5 million). Usher will be at 1.3 million. You guys do not have to believe me but hey I will see you in July.

    Reviewing the list you can see that Lady Gaga and The Black Eye peas are doing well because dance pop is selling by the truckload. That is why I think Pink was robbed at the Grammys for the pop album category she lost to BEP. Their album should be considered dance. Anyways that too explains why Ke$ha is selling. R&b is not doing a well as it use to. Rap dropped off the map.

    Now let us take a look at the United States of America. Here are the top selling albums in the US as of April 4 and beside it are their total sales in the US
    1 Lady Antebellum Need You Now 1,648,000 – (1,648,000 was relea
    sed in 2010).

    3 Lady Gaga The Fame+ The Fame Monster 761,000 – (3,100,000 this include 1,658,000 of The Fame and 1,442,000 of the expanded version).

    4 Black Eye Peas The E.N.D 599,800 – (grand total of 2,386,800 of which 1,787,000 were sold in 2009).

    7 Ke$ha Animal 545,800 – (545,800 released in 2010 may reach 1 million by September based on the consistency of its sales).

    8 Taylor Swift Fearless 431,000 – (grand total of 5,760,000 of this 2,112,000 was sold in 2008 and 3,217,000 in 2009 and still selling. It will reach the 6 million mark by mid-August).

    9 Alicia Keys The Element of Freedom 415,000 (1,194,000 this is poor showing by Alicia but even big stars are finding it hard to sell in this industry, of this 779,000 was sold in 2009).

    10 Mary J Blige Stronger 332,000- (grand total of 726,100 include the 394,000 she sold in 2009 I honestly thought this would be platinum but oh well).

    11Usher Raymond vs. Raymond 330,000 – (330,000 it is hard to predict this album, I had to include him)

    I am not sure where Rihanna is but she has sold 298000 in 2010 + 499000 in 2009 for a total of 797,000 in total sales; expect it to sell 1 million by the beginning of June). A honourable mention is Trey Songz who sold 208,4000 copies of his Ready cd in 2010 and 438,400 in 2009 for a total of 647,200 he is really trying hard).

    For all the Beyoncé fans her album is at 2.8 million in total sales with 1,459,000 sold in 2008 and 1,199,800 sold in 2009 with just over 150,000 sold in 2010, I don’t expect it to reach 3 million).

    I will do a follow up in July when half the year has gone if u guys want me to. As a person who loves R&B looking at both lists Sade, Alicia Keys, Usher and Rihanna are representing. Hopefully Monica’s album will do well and continue to sell consistently. My prediction is that Justin Beiber will move to number 2 by mid year. He is just 482000 copies behind Sade who is currently at number 2 but his sales projection has him at 1.5 million by July and Sade at 1.4 million but we will see. I also expect Usher, Rihanna and Mary J Blige to sell 1 million in my next update. Go R&B.

    The second quarter includes April, May and July and with April almost over and no major releases expected from urban acts in May except Toni Braxton (go cop that May 4) the charts look boring. However, June looks to be the BIG BANG with releases from Christina Aguilera and Drake on the 8th and 15th respectively. We may get 3 more albums in June from Ciara, Kelly Rowland and Jennifer Lopez (slated for June 29th). As I said don’t expect any new entries in the top 10. I expect Sade to slide down to number 3, Lady Gaga to slide to number4, Usher to jump to number 5.

    Anyone in the UK who has access to their chart can post figures.

  50. ADE April 13, 2010

    Well Christina and electro pop just do not go well together, you only have to listen to Keeps Getting Better to realise this, that s*** was diabolical; same with Not Myself Tonight – absolute trash. She needs to stop following the “trend” and just do her. Electro pop just isnt for her.

  51. jojo April 13, 2010

    Btw Jammy Xtina Has Got A Better Voice Then Gaga Nd Xtina Does Not Lipsync Im. a Fan Xtina Nd Gaga Bt Xtinas Gt A Better Voice But Gaga Is A Better How Could You Put It Performer Anyway Now Im Just TEAM MUSIC

  52. dj dunkonthatbitch April 13, 2010

    Gaga is a no talent b****. Christina doesnt need to copy her, ulike Gaga she can actually sing and is hot.

  53. nickalus Randle April 13, 2010

    OK I thought it was gonna b worst than it actually is, AKON is kinda right tho….

  55. Mr.727 April 13, 2010

    @Kenny! I feel you man! I used to like her but know that b**** is a recluse only to be remembered! The music speaks for itself! The last ten years has been a f****** circus for music! They sit here and act like this b**** is a icon like Mj! No one will ever be him or do the things he has done! One day all these people that are so called famous now will, only be looked at as mediocre at best! People are tried of the elctro b*******, I get so motherfucking tired of turning on the radio only to hear a got sponge Bob song! What happened to the imaginative quality music used to have? What happened to really just feeling the music? Now a mofo can go in a studio and make a album in a weeks time! I’m sorry but Gaga will never be a legend like Aretha Franklin , Tina Turner, MJ, Prince, Madonna! If she was really real as she say she is, she would have to be a got damn circus freak to display her true talent! At the end of the damn day take all the blond hair , Art Deco ass outfits, toss them out the door, what to you have? Just the average chick, only she got cash! Lady GAGA be real b****!

  56. Shayla April 13, 2010

    Christina a bonafide pop star before GaGa even hit the forefront of this industry! Sure Gaga was writing music for pop stars behind the scenes at first. But hasn’t Christina been rocking bold platinum and blonde locks and bright red lipstick and semi-attention grabbing clothes for majority of her career? It always kills me when folks think a person who was publicly known first is the culprit of the swagger jacking. Funny funny…. THEYBF.

  57. Jerome Trammel April 13, 2010

    FACTS: Christina Aguilera Was Already Thinking Outside The Box Before Lady GaGa Was Even Out!! (See Christina Old Music Videos)

    Secondly While Akon Was In Jail “Locked Up” Christina Been Doing This #CrazyShit

    Lastly Just Because You & Lady GaGa Have A Business Realitonship Doesn’t Mean You Have To Blast Other Artist Because Truth Be Told Rather Christina Has A Good Girl Image Or “Lady Gaga-Ish” Image Her Talent Has Taken Her Far…. Would Lady GaGa Be As Known If It Wasn’t For Her Look? Nope!! Christina Did Both Looks & Pulled It Off…. I Love Them Both!!

  58. C April 13, 2010

    I agree with some of what Akon said, I dont think Christina knows who she is musically, and while Gaga didn’t create her genre of music she brought attention back to it…Christina is attempting to capitalize off whats in musically with the “Futuristic” sound…The girl can sang her ass off but personally I dont think her voice meshes well with electronica… I dont know why people say Gaga isn’t talented, the b**** can sing & dance at the same time, and is an amazing performance artist shes a entertainer…people toss gimmick around too easily Christina has had her share of gimmicks Bionic is one of them

  59. DIVAZZ April 13, 2010

    @ SASHA WOW SASHA YOU TOOK THE TIME TO WRITE A WHOLE 1 PAGE ESSAY ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE’S ALBUMS.THAT S***!!!!!!!

WHY ARE TALL GETTING SO HEATED ABOUT A SITUATION THAT DOESN’T EVEN CONCERN YOU.I KNOW YOU WILL SAY “WHO CARES” OR I DO THE SAME THING.NO I DON’T I AM NOT RACIST ON THE INTERNET,I NEVER WAS.TO SAY ALL THESE THINGS WOULD MAKE ME REALLY SAD.YEAH I SAY B**** OR S*** OR F***.SO EVERYONE SAYS IT,BUT I NEVER SAY “CRACKER” OR “BIRD S***” TO ANYONE MUCH LESS WRITE IT.ALL I SAID WAS “SHUT THE F*** UP” TO AKON BECAUSE I DISAGREED WITH HIS STATEMENT ABOUT CHRISTINA.

  60. RATED x April 13, 2010

    @DIVAZZ
    do u feel better now, now that u got all that hatred and anger for GAGA, out of ur chest?

    let me gess this straight, ur bashing her for trying to be positive, by telling people not to have s** all willy nilly..common on now, shes an entertainer, meaning she got to entertain people.if she chooses to dress sexxy or whatnot while she entertainer people thats on her.
    but that makes her a b****?
    i swear to god people needs diffrent hobby than constantly bashing on folks.
    its one thing if ur stating ur opinion, that she suck, she cant sing, or shes a gimmick..but to call her a b**** and a s***?..SMH

  61. bbq April 13, 2010

    Christina’s copying Gaga???

    Uh…I think not. I am so sick of people thinking Gaga created dance pop or she’s the first artist to dress “weird” or say outrageous things. I mean what has she done that Madonna, Grace Jones and Elton John haven’t done before. They were weird, crazy, and outspoken way before she was even born.

    Of course Akon would jump on the Christina copying Gaga bandwagon. He sort of discovered her. He’s trying to take away from Christinas shine.

    But let’s be honest, Christina could sing Gaga under the table and that is all that matters. No matter how she dresses or what type of music she sings.

    Gaga’s antics will soon wear tiresome and we as people/fans/music lovers/critics will move on to the next thing as we always do leaving her to do more crazy things to top herself. But a talent like Christina will go on to have career because of her voice. She won’t have to result to foolish tatics to sell records, because she’s so talented. Not that Gaga isn’t but I just wish people would quit comparing them. Of all people Akon shouldve known better not to speak on this. This is something that’s fun for fans to delibrate about. This really takes away from his crediblity. Bad move Akon. Bad move VIBE for even running this foolishness that has already been all over the blogs since 2008. Magazines are supposed to give us the scoop on what’s next not what’s then. Get it together VIBE

  62. ice April 13, 2010

    lolz; christina’s chidhood has always been harassed by common, untalented, mediocre people around her. Insecurity with talent is not, and will never be Christina’s issue, her insecurity lies with domestic issues, and never be talent because she’s overflowing with it.

    Britney fans have always and will forever hate Christina because of the BEST NEW ARTIST fire back in 2000. When GAGA came, Britney(songwriting) and Beyonce (telephone) have bowed down to her, except Christina, and people are hating because AGAIN xtina will never bow down to FADS like GAGA.

    Christina will never EVER be insecure because the legends (where she belongs) have acknowledged her talent and existence(Rolling Stones, Celine, Patty, Tony, THE GRAMMY, etc), and a ‘mere’ akon dissing her will not change it; I bet Xtina will be laughing out loud when she came across the word insecure.

    Gaga will be the next J.Lo, Ashanti, Willa Ford, etc, and so for Xtina fans, don’t entertain things like this, they will just fizzle like everyone with pure gimmick and lack of real talent (Gaga can write catchy songs, but that’s it, no social impact whatsoever).

    I’ve been reading this blog, and if I don’t like an artist I don’t bother to waste my time dissing them and their fans BECAUSE THAT”S REAL INSECURITY.

  63. matt April 13, 2010

    lmao at lady gaga for newcomer, the artist who has been out for two years and still selling thousands of her debut album each week after TWO YEARS, being compared with such big artists, love it. love chrstina but go gaga, get them tongues wagging bishh. love yah!!

  64. triniboy April 13, 2010

    I wonder what the download figures were like on itunes today? Btw every year a certain genre of music seems to dominate but when people get tired of the electropop thing I wonder what. GaGa is going to to, don’t get me wrong I appreciate both artists and what they have to offer..but I’m jus saying versatility is a b**** when you can adapt to anything and it’s Christina’s strong point. Just some food for thought

  65. ~TeAM WeeZY~ April 13, 2010

    I agree with Akon! You Christina stans need to calm the hell down. Geez! I like both Christina and Gaga but he made some really valid points! It’s obvious he wasn’t attempting to bash her, because he noted that she was already successful and he wanted the old Christina back, which is really interesting. And I also find it to be an honor to Gaga that she’s being compared to artists that have been out for wwwaaaayyyyy longer than her.

  66. Aunt Jackie April 13, 2010

    Christina is the ish
    Gaga is great

    2 DIFFERENT artists

    One’s about showmanship, entertainment, fashion a whole movement, piano ect. (Gaga)

    The other is a 10 year veteran who poo-poo’s on EVERY pop singer with her vocals and is creative and daring in her own right. (Christina)

    I will say, Christina NEVER leaned on fashion like most pop stars do now. [No shade to anyone intended]

    They are both great. Why does everyone have to be compared to Lady Gaga, she isn’t the ‘World’s first Pop Star’. I just don’t get it. She’s a trend-setter, sure. But, really…..everyone is nor trying to be her. It’s going to make people tire of GAGA fast, like people are trying shove her down our throats.

  67. Fred April 13, 2010

    All I can say is Christina has been around for 11 years or more so who was first? waiting?

  68. algie April 13, 2010

    akon who???? lol whatever lol

  69. Jasmine April 13, 2010

    I disagree. Christina never puts out an album without showcasing her vocal talent. She only has 3 albums but they all were in different directions while still showcasing her voice which means she can go different ways in working with “current” producers but makes sure she “sings” too instead of computerized vocal effects.

    1,. 1st Album = teeny bobbper music (early 2000 style music while using her voice to separate herself from Britney and J.Lo. This got her the grammy for best new artist.

    2. 2nd Album = Stripped. She attempted to have a sluttier/sexier image but failed. Yet she still managed to be successful by using her voice on the better songs on the album.

    3. 3rd Album = changed producers and tried to have an Amy Winehouse style but failed. Yet her voice brought her in some sales but no where near her 1st album.

    4. Bionic = her attempt at being current but yet showcasing her voice as the “backup” plan incase her attempt at being current does not sell

    So Akon is wrong!

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B November 4, 2018

    AKON IS TELLING THE TRUE HE AIN’T NEVER LIED

  72. omzir April 13, 2010

    Akon needs to check himself! CHRISTINA AGUILERA WAS A BLONDE BEFORE GAGA WAS… and just because gaga looks a like a freaked out alien doesn’t mean that everyone is from out of space.

    i still love me some gaga.

  73. HUMANA HUMANA April 13, 2010

    Image wise, she may be heading towards copying Gaga. But music wise, as Not Myself Tonight is concerned, she’s totally on Britney’s Blackout imo.

  74. DIVAZZ April 13, 2010

    @RATED X PEOPLE SAY WHY CALL LADY GAGA A B****! I QUOTE LADY GAGA HERSELF SAID IN THE BAD ROMANCE VIDEO”AM A FREE B**** BABY”.SHE CALLED HERSELF A B****!!!! AND I THINK I AM ENTITLED TO MY OPINION,I CAN SAY OR COMMENT WHAT EVER I FEEL OR WANT.AS LONG AS IT ISN’T TOO HARSH OR RACIST.I DON’T AGREE WITH SOME OF THE THINGS LADY GAGA DOES.IT’S SO STRANGE WHEN I SEE HER FANS SAYING SHE IS UNIQUE OR OUT OF THIS WORLD.THEY ARE GENIUS CHILD PIANO PLAYERS,AND OTHER PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WHO CAN PLAY THE PIANO BETTER THAN HER.THEY ARE A LOT OF SINGERS IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY WHO CAN SING BETTER THAN LADY GAG.THEY ARE LOTS OF DANCERS LIKE MICHAEL JACKSON(POP0,JANET JACKSON,BEYONCE,JENNIFER LOPEZ,SHAKIRA AND BRITNEY SPEARS WHO CAN DANCE BETTER THAN LADY GAGA.I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE RATE HER SO HIGHLY.AND SAY THAT SHE IS BETTER THAN MADONNA,BRITNEY SPEARS AND BEYONCE.IT’S A FACT THAT BEYONCE CAN SING,DANCE AND PERFORM BETTER THAN GAGA.BEYONCE COULD SING GAGA UNDER THE PIANO AND DANCE HER OFF THE STAGE.BUT BECAUSE BEYONCE IS NOT ECCENTRIC AND DRESSES WEIRD.AND MAYBE A LITTLE BIT UNORIGINAL THAT MAKES HER NOT BETTER THAN GAGA.SO WHAT!! IF BEYONCE COPIES A LITTLE EVERYONE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY DOES EVEN LADY GAGA.PEOPLE COPY MOVIES AND REMAKE THEM ALL THE TIME,JUST LIKE LADY GAGA IS RESTORING POP CULTURE AND MUSIC.LIKE I SAID BOTH LADY GAGA AND CHRISTINA COPY MADONNA.LOL BRITNEY SPEARS IS NOT ORIGINAL SHE COPIES MADONNA AND JANET JACKSON.DON’T BELIEVE ME THEN DO YOUR RESEARCH IT.MADONNA DID THE MARILYN MONROE THING FIRST THEN IT WAS COPIED BY BRITNEY SPEARS,CHRISTINA A,KATY PERRY AND LADY GAGA.MADONNA DID THE BLACK HAIR THING FIRST THEN IT WAS COPIED BY GWEN STEFANI(WHO ALSO COPIED HER STYLE),BRITNEY SPEARS,RIHANNA,CHRISTINA A AND SOON TO BE COPIED BY LADY GAGA.EVERY FEMALE ARTISTS BORROW FROM MADONNA AND JANET JACKSON.NOBODY IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TODAY IS ORIGINAL IT’S FACTS.EVERYBODY BORROWS FROM SOMEBODY JUST LIKE MADONNA BORROWED HER MUSIC FROM MOTOWN AND HER IMAGE FROM CHER AND MERILYN MONROE.JUST LIKE MADONNA LADY GAGA IS INSPIRED BY ANDY WARHOL.MICHAEL JACKSON IS ORIGINAL BUT HE WAS INSPIRED BY JAMES BROWN AND JACKIE WILSON IN THE WAY HE PERFORMED ON STAGE.

  75. g-unit April 13, 2010

    hmmm, to keep it relatively real, I’m not a christina fan, nor a gaga fan, some songs by both are catchy.
    Gaga has shipped 10mil of her debut, (through a 9 track add on, kudos for that) personally I don’t think she’s an amazing singer, her songs have never attempted to prove that opinion wrong. Her videos/performances speak for themselves when it comes to dancing, basic moves (which I welcome when it comes to mimic) but disappointing for such an `artist’

    I dunno if Aguilera has the drive gaga has (but has 10 years on her), however, if she wants to run the pop field (see: stripped) she will.

    Akon = A-hole

    Just to make things even clearer, gaga would be alright if she didn’t talk & Christina will always come well beneath others for me, namely Britney.

    I welcome gagas 4 year break and return to the game, peace OUT

  76. MEiiii April 13, 2010

    UMMMMM wasnt Christina out WAAAAAY before GaGa…Christina was doing this shyt way before GaGa came on the scene in like 09

    @DIVAZZ
    yes u r entiled to ur own opinions..but u dont think ur being harsh by calling somebody a b****?ok..thats shows how much respect u have for women. i hope to god u not a women..

    so what if she calls herself a b****..umm u werent using “shes a b****”, comment in a positive or funny way. so dont backtrack now.

    like u said people are entitled to their own opinions. that means if the fans or stans chose to put her on a pedistal,or kiss her a** everyday, they r entitled too do what the fugg they want…
    we already know beyonce is talented, and shes not even in the same music category as gaga, so why compare the two?

  79. Ben April 13, 2010

    He is right! Christina was the business when she was was doing her thing. But see what happens when you take 4-5 years off at a time and try to jump back in the game, only to find out that music has done a whole 720 and there is a new top b**** in town. The reason Beyonce refuses to step down for more than 6 months at a time is relevant. Christina is doing what she think she needs to do to survive. Bottom line.

  80. X April 14, 2010

    Akon is a b**** for this!

    Xtina >>>>>>>>> Gaga

  81. James April 14, 2010

    He is right! Xtina new song sounds something from Britneys & Gaga album. NEVER was Xtina the one to go down that path, SAD!

    Anywho jamming to Ciara RIDE!!!

  82. Oggie April 14, 2010

    I disagree totally! If you look back at the History of Christina she has always given her listeners a taste of whats to come in the future half way through promoting an album, on her first album half way through promoting it, she changed her image and started streaking her hair and piercing, wearing bandaners etc you see this in the video for All I Want Is You, then by the time Stripped came out, that was the image that she went with. By the end of Stripped, she collabarated with Nelly and gave us a tster of her 1920’s style image, then by the time back to Basics came out that was the iamage she went with, half way through promoting back to Basics, she showed us an all blond more futuristic image when she collabarated with Diddy, then by the time her greatest hits album came out that was the image she went with, that straight hair with a short fringe crop was the look that everyone was rockin at that point, Janet, Beyonce Christina and Gaga, then immediatly christina gets accused of trying to copy cos gaga was on the up rise.

    I think that naturally if you’ve done music that relates to the past , your next image you would want to do something futuristic, that Pop Dance sound is urban now, even Ushers doing it, Christina has gone the extra length though by working with real people from that scene like M.I.A and Goldfrapp shes taken her time with it, really learned about the music rather than just jumped on it and thats why the new song is so fresh and hot. She’s already an icon to even compare her to Gage is stupied

  83. Jammy April 14, 2010

    @JAMMY

    Get that name off, i am the real Jammy, you seem like an idiot to be saying that gaga is so much better than Xtina. What a ****ing joke!!!

  84. two sense April 14, 2010

    There is no win or lose with this comparing artists in the industry. I just want Christina to come in and sell millions in albums and singles this time since last album was stopped at Candyman. Lady Gaga will continue to do her thing and sell as well. I’m just waiting for Gaga to stop electro and do more MTV Unplugged type of music where its her and her piano like the Pokerface and Paparazzi acoustic versions. Something to showcase her real talent that we love and give her credit for. Im sure shed pick up lots of Grammys if she did. Release Speechless already!!! Listening to Alejandro it doesnt sound much of a hit. Its missing a bridge its too repetitive at the end but people are probably going to support it because shes whats hot now. We just want artists to SAY and DELIVER!!!! Be good at it regardless of what genre u choose.

  85. Fenty April 14, 2010

    B**** nailed the iron right on the head. CHRISTINA JACKED GAGA’S STYLE WITH KEEP GETTING, NOW SHE IS TRYING TO BE DIFFERENT.

  86. Gina G April 14, 2010

    Who isnt copying who these days…? 🙁

  87. Dev April 14, 2010

    It is well documented that GaGa didn’t start off as GaGa. Her music was very different in the early days and so was her look. If she’s aloud to reinvent herself why can’t anybody else. Even if you look from the just dance era the song is nothing amazing, just very catchy and the look was budget glam, its only after designers started throwing clothes at her and the budget get bigger did she become what she is today. Even he attitude has changed

  88. Joey April 14, 2010

    Akon should go back to jail for saying this. Its sucha b*******!

  89. Simon April 14, 2010

    Akon will obviously protect GaGa, she was his artist and was signed to his convict label. However Aggie is a legend and as Akon said her voice is amazing. I think when Bionic finally drops people will form their own opinions but at the end of the day as a fan of BOTH GaGa and Aggie I PERSONALLY don’t hear or see the comparason. To me the only thing similar is they are both blonde pop singers and both have a s*** image. Musically they are different, vocally VERY different and image wise Aggie isn’t as out there as GaGa… I mean you wouldn’t catch Aggie with a telephone on her head!!! lol. Aggie has been out the game for a while and has obviously been keeping tabs on who’s hot and what sounds are current, she has taken that and put HER OWN twist on things. I really hope the album is HUGE for her so people can back off a bit.

  90. Adam April 14, 2010

    Well we always knew Akon is retarded. Anyone who agrees with him is just as retarded, or just plain ignorant. There’s no similarity other than their hair colour and hair cut that one time at the VMA’s. This is 100% fact with plenty of evidence, Christina said she was going futuristic and electronic MONTHS before Lady Gaga was even making waves in the underground scene. Not Myself Tonight and Keeps Getting Better sounds COMPLETELY different from anything Gaga has done, and anything on the radio, and anything Xtina has done herself. Akon is just trying to raise Gaga’s status by dissing her competitors, he’s her boss after all.

    Anybody who thinks this is true didn’t experience the dirty record. Christina has been wildin out far before GaGa came on the scene and when it comes to singing only a r***** would compare the two. GaGa is the hype but Christina is the truth. do your homework and check out Pat Benitar, Adam Ant, Grace Jones, Cyndi Lauper,etc. GaGa is a modern day retread.

    christina is the s*** point blank.i luv me some gaga but come one the first time i saw her i was thinking that she was actually christina so i would like to know what u and that asshole named akon are talking about!!!!!

  108. vegasgirl April 14, 2010

    I think Akon is correct, I do believe Christina is feeling some heat because of the shade she threw Gaga when she first came out and people initially started saying christina was “copying’ Gaga. She made some dismissive comments ” I don’t know that person…is that a man or a woman” and almost 2 years later, Gaga is a cultural phenomenon ( whether some of you want to admit it or not). Not every artists has to be around 10 + years to be considered relevent or a game changer ( Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, etc). I personally don’t believe Gaga the artist will be around in 5 years (definetely not in the form she is in now) but I think she will be involved in music forever.

    Christina was part of bubblegum teen music of the 90’s and Gaga is representing the resurgence of dance music in the 2000’s. Neither woman “created” anything they are part of and I feel like far too many people are taking this “rivalry” too serious. IT’S MUSIC!

    Christina is singing dance music because it is popular now. Honestly though what artist is not feeling some heat from Gaga because of the MASSIVE amounts of attention she is getting and now I am sure the labels want this for their own artists, so in some ways she probably has set a new industry standard on how to promote an artist. Christina will always do well because she has a loyal fan base, but I also think Gaga is gaining a fiercely loyal following that may support her career for years to come. We’ll see!

    Also Madonna was/is a great transmitter of culture not the creator of it. She didn’t create dance music, voguing or any of that but she did bring it to the masses who weren’t exposed to artistic, dance culture. Gays were vogueing Way before Madge did it in a video but no one was calling her a copycat. Everyone borrows from others that came before them, it’s called influence

    I love gaga..but did u ever see christinas video for “fighter”??? dressing crazy and diff. and dont u remember her makin out with girls and doing “different” s*** before lady gaga figured out what charactor she wanted to play and before anyone knew her… so AKON Needs to sit down and shutup because he cant even sing.. BAMM!! lol

  111. Songbirdie April 14, 2010

    In a couple of years we won’t even remember gaga….she’s a big gimmick…but Christina will always have her amazing voice and I will ride with her to the end!!! haha

  112. hello April 14, 2010

    That Lady Gaga comment ”no one will remember her in few years” is getting old. When she first made it big, everyone was like she was a one hit wonder and would disappear soon. Few years down the track, she is still one of the hottest stars in the music industry. Accept it Lady Gaga is here to stay. She might not be as popular as she is in a few years, but saying no one will remember her is just absurd.

    Back to Christina. She isn’t copying anyone. She is doing like most artists are doing in order to survive this generation of electro pop music. This is the trend and she is following along.

    watch him take back his words after the album comes out….
    f***** d*****….
    and yea i guess Gaga didnt copy Roisin Murphy, M.I.A., Madonna, Christina, Britney, and all the great b4 her.
    fail to AKON, dont get involved in this b*******…. ur just contradicting urself.

  114. Simply Phillip Brown April 15, 2010

    Lol! Yaw, are truly something else. Wait til Madonna’s new album comes out, and everyone will be saying she’s trying to copy Lady Gaga as well.

    Does anyone know anything? Christina Aguilera did NOT copy Lady Gaga. With her “Decade of Hits” album in 2008, she included a futuristic version of Genie in a Bottle and named it Genie 2.0. You can find it on YouTube. She even performed at the VMAs that year to showcase her upcoming look and style! She said that it would foreshadow the kind of music she will work on in the future. She went to the “past” with “Back to Basics” and then decided her next album to “go to the future.” If you know w\the work she’s done, she has always reinvented her image for HER, not for stealing light of others.

    On the other hand, Gaga is indeed incredible. She rose to fame quicker than Christina did in 2 years. They are different. It’s honestly not fair what everyone is saying. Let Christina do her thing and let Gaga do her thing.
