#JusticeForBionic: Claude Kelly Offers Insight Into How Christina Aguilera’s ‘Bionic’ Campaign Was Derailed

Published: Tuesday 3rd Dec 2019 by David

When Claude Kelly and Christina Aguilera teamed up to create her sixth studio album ‘Bionic‘ they believed its electronic sound and themes of self-love, fashion, travel and beauty would be celebrated by the world and judged fairly by critics and fans alike.

This week, Claude has revealed that the opposite occurred because a gossip platform launched a vicious campaign (endorsed by some senior figures in the music industry) to derail the album’s push and fling Aguilera’s brand into a web of ignominy.

A stunning development in the #JusticeForBionic story below…

After years of battling claims that she backed the entity’s efforts to interfere with Christina’s career, Lady Gaga made her new position clear by asking the ‘Vanity‘ singer to join her on the track ‘Do What U Want‘…prised from her ‘ARTPOP‘ LP.

    Perez was a shady b*tch during these days (I mean, look what he did to Britney during 2007). But let’s be honest, Bionic was not that good of an album IN MY OPINION. This had more than 20 songs…nobody was still doing that when this sh*t came out. It was cheesy and she did try to rip off GaGa’s style with the Not Myself Tonight video. The concept, album cover, and the pathetic attempt at being s*** in that music video is what killed this album.

    • only facts December 3, 2019

      But for Perez to expose that GaGa was in on the attempt to derail this album, that is some tea I didn’t know. I still don’t like GaGa. Every time we see her she’s someone different. Who are you REALLY GaGa?? She seems calculated and manipulative.

      I don’t care for either of them….or Katy. F those girls.

    • Jasmine December 3, 2019

      The problem with this album was people wanted another Stripped album produced by Scott Torch and Christina delivered an album sounding like Gaga leftovers.

      • Paulo December 3, 2019

        Nobody wanted Scott Storch back, she took too long and switched lanes completely (from retro soulful pop to futuristic electro)

      • Jasmine December 3, 2019

        I agree 100 percent Paulo you are correct.

    • C***** December 4, 2019

      Yeah it was that snake Perez who later admitted it was a plan conjured by him and lady Gaga…not only XTina was sabotaged by them.
      A few years later he made a vlog on which he told gaga was obsessed with other female singers (she used to Call him all the time saying songstress A or singer B role her sound or image or ideas, in some of the cases he said it was ridiculous accusations) and that her position as “Kween” was at risk.
      They sabotaged XTina, Porcelain BLack, Melanie Martinez, Kerli, Z-Lala, Natalia Kills and even Jlo!
      They tried to do the same with Madonna but in this case it was a lost battle Madonna thrived and step on those two roached…
      That’s why since Born This Way I don’t really support her anymore and I never liked this little white wannabe Wendy.

    • Caleb December 4, 2019

      Not Myself Tonight was completely inspired by Madonna frame by frame. It had nothing to do with GaGa.

      • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

        Correct. And since Haga was copying Madonna in critical-thinking-arresting outfits, the entranced sheeple accused Xtina of plagiarizing the-then pop newcomer.

  2. Clarkso00n December 3, 2019

    Stop giving human trash perez Hilton that much credit.

    This album was uninspiring
    Weak songs, outdated formula, etc

    Woohoo with nicki minaj was trash.
    Even the title track bionic was trash.

    She copied gaga look this era also.

    The public was over her. This was the beginning of Christina’s decline

    Not myself tonight is still an iconic bop
    The video is fire.

    • Fancy BISH December 3, 2019

      Perez Hilton smh 🤣 I know he wishes he had another name now 😂 He’s a messy mess and now he’s fighting his past trying to rewrite it!

      • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

        Shoulda seen his pathetic OKCupid profile. Had nothing heartwarming
        to offer to ensnare a husband, so he went with “I’m really hung ha!” 🙄

  3. Meme December 3, 2019

    Let’s be real. I love Xtina but everything about this album, singles, promo and videos screamed Gaga at the time. The video for not myself was like a great value version of bad romance. I absolutely hate when vets feel like they need to keep up when a new girl comes in town.

    • Clarkso00n December 3, 2019

      Yes, she tried to keep up with the times and ever changing music industry but she couldn’t

      That’s why shes flopping right now
      She’s stuck in the middle of two different generations.
      She’s not a boomer, she’s not a millennial

      Its tragic.
      I feel sorry for her. Looking at Christina on the redcarpet at award shows, u can tell she’s so over it. She doesnt know what to do with her career .

      Britney is lucky, she didnt need to compete, she did her thing and she survived gaga mania back in 2010’s
      3
      Hold it against me
      Till the world ends
      I wanna go
      S and m remix
      These songs were hits during gaga mania.

  4. Paulo December 3, 2019

    I might listen later if you actually post the link but Perez never had that much clout plus Xtina herself shaded Gaga with transphobic comments back then. No one but Xtina’s team and RCA is to blame!

    • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

      Perez was as much of a music influencer when Britney shaved her head as are today’s Youtube makeup influencers. His “pen” alone could persuade or dissuade obese mid America gays and girls buying new music. Hard to believe but all true.

  5. Kim,Keisha&Pam December 3, 2019

    I believe every word!

  6. only facts December 3, 2019

    Christina, what’s your excuse for Lotus flopping? Because that album was just as tragic as Bionic.

  8. J December 3, 2019

    This album should have never been released! The “Burlesque” soundtrack would have been the best move after “Back To Basics” but she wanted to get Bionic out so bad. Bionic flopping tainted the movie release.

    Bionic was a fun album though! Bought the deluxe edition with the holographic cover lol. But it just shouldn’t have been. Let it die in peace. lol

    • only facts December 3, 2019

      Not “let it die in peace” LOL

    • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

      Agreed. The movie was cheesy but the OST the perfect bridge between BIIB and future (non-futuristic) releases. Xtina should have cemented a bluesy/jazzy/rock/soul lane. Oh well …

  9. Kim,Keisha&Pam December 3, 2019

    Bionic was an incredible album.

  10. Xtina4life December 3, 2019

    How can you guys compare bionic to any lady Gaga’s albums. Sorry to bust your bubble this album was way ahead of its time compared to Gaga’s. Bionic had the hate train still does cause everyone of these comments were and still on the bionic hate train. I’m sure if Perez and you guys wanna bashed xtina for a comment not knowing if she was a man or women please. That’s where Perez used it against her and it started.

    • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

      Business is people treatment foremost. Xtina had Mo’Nique’s difficult rep and Ariana’s diva rep working against her. Mary J Blige exposed her alleged nastiness to an R&B audience willing to listen post-TRL. Her constant shots at her vocal lesser, Spears, gave Britney Taylor Swift’s victim card. Her altercation with Mariah Carey cost the newcomer Streisand/ Houston/ Dion adorers. Her outing her gay ex boyfriend alienated gay audiences and industry big wigs. And her ex-husband, who referred to her with his co-workers as “Crazy”, was her only saving grace while making Stripped. Notice that nothing post their divorce has been thrilling musically.

  11. Around the way filet December 3, 2019

    Christina has been washed up since the mid 2000’s. No one was checking for her when she released Bionic. Let’s be honest.

    • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

      Bared it all by her 2nd album. With her mystery and mystique gone, what else was left to the public to look forward to? I get her “integruous” refusal to work with hip producers, but songs that revived interest in her were simple sing-along tunes. I believe she naively overestimated the general public’s musical appreciation. Add death of anticipation/scarcity with the death of the CD … voilà.

  12. Chris fan of Christina A. December 3, 2019

    I personally enjoyed the album. I agree with alot of the comments on her sound changing ways. I also think she should really really consider getting back to her stripped days. she was welcomed into a culture that fit her amazing soulful sound. That’s the doorway back to the Top Xtina!

    • eric December 3, 2019

      Stripped and the contemporary side of Back to Basics!

      • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

        S** For Breakfast after Not Myself Tonight would have worked better. Bionic was her shot to go n-i-p-p-l-e to n-i-p-p-l-e with 90’s soft p.o.r.n Madonna or go home! Alas, Xtina (or RCA) chose (for her) not to go big.

  13. Xtina4life December 3, 2019

    Well I’m sure she will be welcomed and not criticized in the Latin community when she releases that Spanish album.

  14. Martin December 3, 2019

    Christina Aguilera didn`t copy gaga . Christina was really clear ( you can find the video in youtube ) she was paying tribute to Madonna , inspired in her Express YourSelf video and her favourite Madonna looks. Gaga copied Madonna and with perez hilton ( f*** him ) sabotage Bionic f*** gaga she is a big shiit

    • eric December 3, 2019

      I have to disagree. It was never Christina’s style to copy ANYONE, but Gaga was making things look cool and Christina tried to prove that she’s worthy of the same attention by copying exactly what Gaga was doing at the time regardless of where it originated. It was a big misstep, because the comparisons destroyed any potential Christina had with the project.

      • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

        People forget Xtina released a “futuristic” musical direction 2 YEARS BEFORE BIONIC.

        On the cover and sound of Keeps Gettin’ Better: A Decade of Hits.

        In 2008 !!!

        Merely 10 days apart from Gaga’s debut album release.

        How could she copy an up’n coming brunette, guida-stached artist until-then known for gogo dancing high and a clear Elton John/David Bowie sound influence?

  15. eric December 3, 2019

    No excuses. It’s not a good album, and I don’t need Perez to figure that out for myself. They’re coming back now trying to drum up sympathy for Christina and her next album.

  16. Rebelheart December 4, 2019

    Christinas video of Not Myself Tonight was an homage to Madonna with references to several of her videos. You GaGa tarts need to research your music history before you believe that Gaga did anything first. REDUCTIVE comments!!

    • Caleb December 4, 2019

      Exactly. “Not Myself Tonight” references “Express Yourself” and “Human Nature” by Madonna.

    • eric December 4, 2019

      It’s more than that. Gaga was already capitalizing off of Madonna, then Christina saw the response it was getting and started doing the same thing, homage or not.

  17. AJ December 4, 2019

    It was self indulgent and trend chasing…. that’s why it flopped.

    • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

      I think divorce and B2B failing soon after had killed her hunger. And she’s artistically dumb and stubborn.

  18. Liam December 4, 2019

    Bionic was dope album and some of her best vocally sonically

    • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

      No song REALLY grabs you.

      NMT was fun. But marketing it was weird.

      Said her son inspired her to be playful, then drops a video with ball gags, pasties, black latex and milk?

      At a time exposing celebs’ implication in rumored satanic rituals for fame hitting a fever-pitch high on YouTube!

      Plus, RCA’s uptempo in winter, ballad in summer formula never worked for her.

  19. PinotNoir December 4, 2019

    The only good thing outta Bionic?

    Sia.

    No one knew/worked with her prior.

    Look at her now.

  20. Musicluver December 4, 2019

    Bionic was a great album that was totally slept on and attacked. She had so many good songs on there from “I’am” to “Desnudate”. A fun album that deserved more credit than it received

    • PinotNoir December 4, 2019

      Post Back To Basics, Xtina shoulda stayed in the past: like 60’s and 70’s blues/rock that best suits her raspy belts. Shoulda followed Ain’t No Other Man by Back In The Day or Understand, THEN release Hurt in winter, maybe even close the era with On Our Way or even Still Dirty.

  21. Jussjulio December 4, 2019

    Let me start in 2008 when the Lady Gaga comparisons first started.

    Christina released her Keeps Gettin’ Better: A decade of hits with lead single of the same name. Despite the Lady Gaga Comparisons- The song still managed to peak at #8 in the US hot 100

    Bionic was a solid album. It was different for her but she’s always switched up her sounds between albums. The debut was nothing like stripped, stripped was nothing like Back to Basics etc

    Fast forward to Bionic. Unlike Gaga, Christina made it VERY clear that she was playing homage to Madonna with the Style. However, (like someone mentioned before) even though Christina made it clear that she was playing off of Madonna, people were already on the GaGa train and Gaga, Perez and their team went after her every chance you get. It was the first glimpse of “Cancel” culture. People were ready to Cancel Christina due to all the negative press. Despite this- Bionic still managed to peak at #3 in the US top 200 + being the #1 most illegally downloaded album that year.

    So…people were still interested In Bionic. But the smear campaign along with the problems with her Label kept the album from reaching its full potential.

It’s also funny to me that Bionic album cover was 1/2 human 1/2 machine with heavy Dark electronic music And Born this way was 1/2 human 1/2 machine with a VERY similar sound.

    So…people were still interested In Bionic. But the smear campaign along with the problems with her Label kept the album from reaching its full potential.

    Boinic is one of my favorite albums by Christina Aguilera!! I have been a huge fan of hers since the beginning. In bionic, Aguilera really pushed her talent and created something beautiful and alternative. I hope she will still work more on music like this album. Keep doing what you do Christina!! Your amazing.
