The Great Shame of Christina Aguilera

It's a shame that Christina and her management have placed her sexuality so centrally to her music. To add insult to injury, this slapper-tastic imagery and rhetoric has been justified as a sort of feminist empowerment. A kind of 'anything you can shag, I can shag better' mentality, which has only contributed to empowerment for women in one way: by defining where the feminist movement has gone wrong.
What makes it even more of a kick in the face for music fans is that her vocals are so brilliant.
This was originally written in response to Alexis Petridis's damning review of Christina's new album, Bi-On-Ic.
