On the same day that Christina Aguilera released her new dance-heavy album, Bionic, Lady Gaga released her dark, over-the-top clip for her latest single, "Alejandro." Although having the same release date may have been a coincidence, the move didn't help to squash all those Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera comparisons.
At the Logo NewNowNext Awards on Tuesday night in Los Angeles, everyone seemed to have an opinion about the situation. And mostly it came down to this: In the pop world hasn't it all been done already anyway?
"I love Christina Aguilera. I've always been a huge fan of hers, and I think Lady Gaga's great as well," "The Hills" star Kristin Cavallari explained to MTV News. "I think that everyone needs to just kind of let it go a little bit. Everyone copies everybody. I mean Lady Gaga copied Madonna. It's the same thing. I think that everyone needs to calm down a little bit about it."
Lady Gaga's pal Perez Hilton admits that while some say that Aguilera is taking some cues from the Lady Gaga playbook, it happens to be that both are doing their best Madonna. It just so happens that some are better at being Madonna than others, a point he's made note of many times on his Twitter. "Just like Christina Aguilera, Gaga is paying homage to Madonna as well," he said. "But unlike Christina Aguilera, Gaga is doing it really well."
In the end, Kelly Osbourne wonders: Can't we all just get along? "It just seems to me like two girls fighting to be who they want to be,"
she said. "And some people might like it and some people might not, and who cares?"
