Christina Aguilera was often compared to GaGa during her last album…
“I think it’s irrelevant and stupid. They both have tits, blonde hair and a microphone – I don’t see why people should worry about it. I don’t think Christina’s unpopularity or lack of fortune recently is to do with the being compared to GaGa. I think that she was at certain level and disappeared, and then came back and tried to fit in with the current trend and it came off desperate. I think if she stuck to her soulful, pop-meets-gospel R&B, maybe her original fanbase would have supported her more. She’ll recover from it, though, because she’s talented.”
Do you think it’s harder now for female artists to be recognised since Lady GaGa’s success?
“If people like your music and it’s good, then what does it matter? Who gives a f**k? If people like the music, it will survive. GaGa is the most popular artist at the moment, but we don’t know what’s going to happen in the next three years. I’ve been making music since I was 14, before the likes of Christina and GaGa’s music careers even existed. If people go into music with the idea of competing with other artists, then they’re doing it for all the wrong reasons.”
