Songwriter defends Christina Aguilera against Lady Gaga comparisons
Several music critics and bloggers (myself included) have been making comparisons between pop singers Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga.
When I posted a blog comparing the two singers, many readers were irritated because I questioned whether Christina can keep up with Lady Gaga. (Click here to read what I said, and what the readers said).
Apparently, Christina’s songwriter is fed up with everyone comparing Christina and Lady Gaga. In an interview with Vibe magazine, songwriter Claude Kelly said:
“That’s crap to me…it’s really bull****. Christina Aguilera has been around for over 10 years now. As far as pop goes, she is the defining voice of today’s music. She can do things with her voice that I haven’t heard anybody else do. She’s constantly reinventing herself. As fans, as soon as an album is done and an artist disappears for a while, we tend to write them off as over or no longer relevant.”
“In the time that she has been gone, Gaga, who I know pretty well, has had an unbelievable run. Christina has an album that’s going to slap people in the face. The music still has her signature, big note vocals and emotions, but the sound is definitely more aggressive, more futuristic than the last album.”
Christina’s new album “Bionic” will be in stores June 8.
