Are these new Christina Aguilera teasers?

I'm intrigued.

Also:

III. The video names.

This was the one that sealed the deal for me: If you add up all of the numbers before a decimal and attach a letter to its corresponding number (A=1, B=2, C=3, etc.) you’ll notice that each video has a distinct message:

Prelude 699130082.451322 = (38.17) = (CH.AG) = CH. AG.
9.1.13.669321018 = I. A. M. CH.
9.20.19.13.5.723378 = I.T.S.M.E.C.
Then there's this little promo image from Sony's site: http://stuff.sonybmg.de/Image/Christ...romo_Album.jpg

Also, I'm the last person to have made a thread about her, but hearing that she has been working with Ladytron, M.I.A., and Goldfrapp among others has made me a bit curious about this record.

Could be since the album is due in April. If it's Christina's people behind this, I think they would make more impact being direct about it being her.

Re: Are these new Christina Aguilera teasers?

Has anyone seen the new video/heard the new song? I'm always well versed in all things, but I really don't understand it. Is it a deliberate attempt to look & sound like Lad GaGa, or do I have it backwards?

Re: Are these new Christina Aguilera teasers?

Everyone wants to make comparison. I don't think it's a deliberate attempt to be Gaga. I don't think she wants to be compared to her. The song doesn't really sound like a Gaga song. It's closer to being a "Dirty Part 2."

Personally, the song does nothing for me. And the video is worse with all the BDSM imagery and lesbian kissing. And product placement--damn, stop it! Mariah Carey and Lady Gaga are guilty of this too.

I wasn't going to watch it but damn, you talked me into it.

Given that Christina still looks like a woman and not an androgynous shemale, I'd say, no.

Wow, she went from a pretty girl to a skank, seemingly to keep up with Britney attention, then she went back to looking pretty and just relying on her voice and now she's back to gimmicks to sell her music. Terrible video and the worst she's ever looked imo.

Well, it's pretty clear I never followed up with iamamwhoami and that she/he/it is not Christina. They still haven't officially revealed, though you can buy one their tunes from the video "b" on iTunes.

Wow, taking an artist's art a little too personally?

She should stick to her Back to Basics sound. She sounds so much better in that style and these generic, hookless dance songs don't do her justice.

I think she has to change musical styles with every album. Christina could go the R&B route with the next album. She hasn't done much of that since her debut.
