Christina Aguilera has confirmed that her latest video features several deliberate references to Madonna.
The singer, who took to the stage with Madonna and Britney Spears for a notorious performance at the 2003 VMAs, used her ‘Not Myself Tonight’ clip to salute the pop queen’s legacy.
“One of my favourite videos ever is ‘Express Yourself’ by Madonna which came across as really strong and empowering which I always try to incorporate through my expression of sexuality,” Aguilera said.
“I love the direct reference I made to Madonna with the eye glass moment and the smoke and stairs. I was paying tribute to a very strong woman who has paved the way before.”
‘Not Myself Tonight’, the lead single from Aguilera’s upcoming album Bionic, is available to download now.
