    There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the song. It’s the singer. Xtina cannot pull off a “Sia song.” Sia conveys edge, depth, vulnerability and power in her vocals while Xtina only has power and pretentiousness. As I watched the video I imagined Sia singing it and let me tell you, it would have killed if she had.

    I actually liked it. I like the conflict of the melody, the voice, and the lyrics. The subject matter is super painful and complicated (You couldn’t keep your hands to yourself), yet the song with its simplicity seeks to explain how easy it would have been to do other wise; how easy it is for her to not do what you did. I also like the speed in which the video is shot, I remember several of the crisis that I’ve had, and… at times it really feels like life has slowed down to make sure that I experience every second– every millisecond– of a painful situation.

    That’s just my two cents.

    I think this song will separate the boys from the men…
    The little boys will think it’s boring due to the lack of syntho-pop enhanced vocals and techno beat that only Britney can bring…
    The men will appreciate it for the the lyrics and vocal talent that only a true performer can deliver.

    Her record company needed to put out a song that would try to re-establish her in Top 40 after the failure of Not Myself Tonight, but unfortunately this new song & vid is another nail in her coffin. Let’s hope her movie career takes off because I still really like her.

    you can definitely hear Sia in that

    not bad imo

    the video is definitely better than her last one

    I think I liked this more knowing that Sia was behind it. You could totally hear her influence.

    Xtina’s gonna lose her record contract. The album’s a bomb, and this third single will bomb.

    Man, talk about the power of Perez’s poison. I think the song is beautiful because it isn’t all dance and pop and synth. Her voice is still beautiful, and its refreshing to hear something is isn’t auto-tuned to all hell. The video isn’t the greatest, but in turn, it is simple just like the song. No over the top effects, no dance choreography.

    A+ for staying classy.

    Wow, it’s certainly become in vogue to bash Xtina!!! I guess she shouldn’t fuck with Gaga’s little monsters or that asshole Perez Hilton. Sheesh! There was a time all us fags were holding her up in such high esteem after the “Beautiful” video. Now all these queens are screaming “Gaga rip-off!!!”

    I think the song is great. It’s my favorite from the album. (Okay, the album is weak.) The video is a bit dull, but she looks & sounds fantastic as always.

    I song Vanity on the CD is funny and amazing! I guarantee it’ll be a huge hit- at leats in the clubs- whenever they release it!

    Finally, a song for grownups. It’s great – not the shallow crap from the artists today.

    She’s a real singer. Get it, kids? Real.

    Huge Sia fan, so I’m inclined to like this. Sia or not, though, xtina can sing. It pained me to see her stumble with her “comeback,” but if she just sticks to her own identity–someone who can effing SING–then makes it edgy in her own way, i think she’ll be fine.

    @matt its the same gaga haters that are hating on cristina,just boring losers those folks are

  14. Montey says

    This was waaaay better than her attempts to be edgy. She needs to stop trying so hard to provoke — she’s just too light-rock-music-station to be edgy — and she should keep up with these interesting collaborations. I finally got a sense of growth from her with this song.

  15. david says

    christina is amazing, which is why people feel the need to break her down. I hate how the gay community can only have one person to look up too! so sad. no wonder we can’t have equal rights. people see us fighting over stupid shit like this!!!!!! when we should be focused on bringing the community together! dumb fags :(

  16. Dice says

    Why are people hating so fucking much? I can’t believe the same people who once praised her are turning 180 against her. I swear most of little monsters are plain retarded.

    The song itself is hauntingly beautiful. The video is simplistic and to the point.

    Christina shines the most when it’s just her and the voice. No need all that glamour and glitter.

  17. B- says

    I really think that Christina should abandon Top 40 pop and go straight R&B. Pop music fans are so damn fickle and have ridiculously short attention spans. All of a sudden people are retconning Christina’s career to say she was always some 2nd rate artist.

    It’s foolish.

    Anyhow, she has a voice, she should just make more urban R&B. That audience will appreciate her as anyone with a voice always has a solid career.

    Pop Music fans are seemingly all Gaga, all the time now. And while I don’t hate Gaga, I think she is a hell of a lot less fun since she came out with that boring The Fame Monster.

    “christina is amazing, which is why people feel the need to break her down”

    Christina has a great voice, but that doesn’t mean she knows how to use it or knows how to convey emotions.

    She lacks personality.

    When asked about Ricky Martin’s coming out she just said “Good for him!”.

    Christina isn’t an amazing singer nor an amazing person.

  19. Pete says

    I agree with Get Real…the problem Christina has had all this time is that there’s little personality to back up the obvious vocal chops. Back when I was working in the industry a coworker who had met her at a party based around one of her earliest releases said she had no social skills. That was a decade ago, but it doesn’t seem like much has changed.

    Madonna has managed to be a chameleon with her career because she was an excellent businesswoman…Christina just ends up following trends (which certainly has helped spawn the “Gaga ripoff” comments at the moment). The public doesn’t really know who “Xtina” is as she’s never had a solid personality base. It’s always been about the vocal fireworks and an ever-changing facade.

    The girl can sing, but there’s just not much else going for her. There are certainly more well-rounded entertainers out there.

    I think song is beautiful. And Christina nails every lyric with grace and power.

    I personally like Christina’s new cd.

    Now I have to find out more about Sia.
