Like the Maggie Griffin to my Kathy, my mother is slowly but surely beginning to leech off of my hard earned e-celebrity status and steal away my beloved Muusers with her MamaMuuse review posts.
Nonetheless, I’ve allowed for another installment of MamaMuuse Presents.
Below is my mother’s actual e-mail response upon watching the Anthony Mandler-directed video for Christina Aguilera‘s latest single, “You Lost Me”:
Christinaâ€™s bitch factor went through the roof with the video you sent me the other day [“Not Myself Tonight”], so I have to admit I just plain donâ€™t like her.
Although bitchiness is usually a trait I can relate to and respect, I still think of her as the slutty, dirty girl. And quite frankly, bitchiness without class is just bitterness. So how do I feel about the video? Meh. Or make that meh-a-meh-a-meh-a-meh-a-meh.
As always, her voice is flawless, but the song doesnâ€™t really do it for me. The video itself started out as a Sealy Posturepedic ad and moved to the headless, faceless body of a man with more going on than The Situation. I guess I can see why she pushed him away – sheâ€™s got Jordan Bratman, that heaping helping of beefcake, waiting for her at home.
On the plus side – I love her new look (even if someone took advantage of Restylene’s Buy One Get One Free special). Now that, Christina, is the right way to be a bitch!
Now please, stop encouraging her. The fame is clearly getting to her head.
Oh, what? You want my opinion?
It’s nice. I think she looks quite gorgeous. Shame about those brief ‘thermal energy’ moments at the beginning, though.
