It's taken a while, but I believe we (and by "we," I mostly mean "I") have all finally come to accept the fact that the mysterious audio-visual project known as iamamiwhoami was not the work of pre-Bionic era Legendtina, but rather Swedish chanteuse Jonna Lee and her producer, Claes Björklund.…


Christina Aguilera: Bionic (Album Review)

Reinvention can be a tricky thing. The Bionic campaign began with the promise of a pop superstar's futuristic return to the scene after an extended love affair with '20s and '30's-inspired vintage sound. On the way back (to the future, if you will), Christina Aguilera would confront setback after…

Well, her website's first countdown is over, and here it is: The cover for Christina Aguilera's 'comeback' single, "Not Myself Tonight." According to PopJustice, it's produced by Polow Da Don ("Blindfold Me," "Patron Tequila"). Wow. After the hype that was the Iamamiwhoami, this whole 'timed…


Iamamiwhoami: A New Video, A New Suspect

The users/part-time sleuths over at ONTD have made what appears to be a rather compelling educated guess as to who's behind the Iamamiwhoami campaign--and no, you probably haven't heard of her. It's not Christina Aguilera. It's not Karin Dreijer, and it's not The Golden Filter--it's Jonna Lee, a…
