Christina Aguilera is attempting to compete with Lady Gaga

So, this is the new Christina Aguilera video. It’s NSFW. If this video is any indication, looks like artists are going to start attempting to compete with Lady Gaga. She’s clearly trying to out “sex freak” her. This video apes the “Bad Romance” video and the “Express Yourself” video. I don’t feel much need to dissect the videos, it’s clear when you watch what Aguilera was “inspired by”. From the white aesthetic, to the outfits, to Aguilera crawling to a saucer of milk, to the shirtless men in rain, to Aquilera standing atop a tall balcony… Of course, Lady Gaga wants to be Madonna in ways, and Madonna wanted to be Marilyn Monroe in ways.

But, Christina Aguilera does get my Hot Mom Award™

Marilyn Monroe would be called “fat” today.

Misfits

This is from a scene in the movie “The Misfits”. Do you realize that Marilyn Monroe would probably be considered “fat” by today’s standards? How did standards of beauty get so fucked up?

You can see the full scene in the trailer, at the 1:38 mark
