Lady Gaga Talks Christina Aguilera And Duet With Cher On ‘watch What Happens’ (video)
The bad press Aguilera received was considered a factor in the album’s underwhelming commercial performance. Gaga first clarified that she is a big fan of Christina Aguilera and that she thought the controversy around the two at the time was very unfair to the Beautiful singer. I just think it’s very unfair of anyone to pit another woman against another woman and especially in the space of music, when we are all just trying to be taken seriously as females. Christina is an incredible vocalist and an incredible artist. From me to her, I’m so sorry for anything that anyone ever said to her because of my existance and I hope she never felt any way about it  I think it’s total nonsense the way that [the media does] that, she said. Christina appeared to respond to the controversy last month in a letter to fans where she advocated love and not hate in light of a #JusticeForBionic campaign, which encouraged fans to buy Bionic on the release date of Gaga’s Artpop album. The Twitter movement was created when celebrity blogger Perez Hilton alleged that Gaga sabotaged the promotion behind Aguilera’s 2010 record. Gaga finally cleared the air on that accusation though. Back to her interview, Gaga also spoke about her failed duet with Cher. As per the Paparazzi singer’s request, The Greatest Thing was cut from Cher’s new album. Gaga wrote that song back in 2007 and the two recorded it together, but she later thought the song didn’t sound fresh enough to be released. We didn’t have time to work on it together and I wrote the song a long time ago. To be fair, if I was writing a song for Cher now, I would want to hear her album and I would want to know where she is in her life. I would want to talk to her about where she’s going musically. I didn’t get to do any of those things so I didn’t want to put out something that wasn’t up to par with what Cher has done before, she told Cohen.

Search Lady Gaga Apologises To Christina Aguilera Over Comparisons And Says She’s ‘A Very Big Fan’ Of Singer EntertainmentWise Thu, Sep 12, 2013 19:46 BST Print Lady Gaga has publicly apologised to Christina Aguilera about any comparisons made between them. Christina was accused of copying Gaga’s electronic pop sound back in 2008 when she released her ‘Bionic’ album, which caused an online divide between fan bases. “I’m a very big fan of Christina Aguilera and from the very beginning when my career started, there was all of this controversy about the two of us,” Gaga told Watch What Happens Live.”I always felt it was very unfair to her.” Asked if it was because Aguilera was seen to be copying her sound, Gaga replied: “All I know is that people were talking about Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga. “I just think it’s very unfair for anybody to pit another woman against another woman.

I hope she never felt any way about it, because when I was 15 I was trying to sing ‘I Turn To You’ at the top of my lungs trying to hit all her notes. “So she was an inspiration to me to have a wider vocal range, and I think it’s just all total nonsense the way they do that.” One person who previously spoke out in defense of Gaga regarding the feud is producer Akon, who signed the singer to his record label KonLive. He spoke out against Aguilera in a 2010 interview with Vibe, saying the public is “actually giving Christina too much credit.” “She always had her cool little look and way about how she went about things. But soon as Gaga came out everything switched up,” he added. When Christina released her raunchy video for ‘Not Myself Tonight’ that same year critics accused her of trying to imitate the newcomer. When asked about the speculation by Out magazine, the ‘Dirty’ singer said: “That in particular, is not even worth wasting the breath to comment on. “I’ve been around for over a decade and I think my work speaks for myself.”
