It’s actually dangerous

Even before it was released in June, Christina Aguilera’s latest album Bionic seemed destined to be a flop.
By reinventing her image, Christina was accused of biting Lady Gaga’s style, a touchy subject that had a reverse effect just a couple years ago. Now, she says that she’s done promoting the album, which to date has sold less than 300,000 copies here in North America.
“The creative process that involved Bionic is over, I did what I wanted to do and I’m satisfied with it,” Christina said at a press conference for her new movie, Burlesque. “If the album sells or if the songs are a hit, I don’t care and I don’t need to know it, I did my part and I gave 100% while I was doing it, and I’m proud of this work.”
The singer went on to say that she’s now focusing on her acting career. “Burlesque was a different process, I’ll support this project until the end, but not to find out if it was a box office hit or not – that is not what motivates me.
“The creative process is my thing, I’m an artist and once something is over, I look forward for what is next, and I don’t look back.”
Hmm… I wonder if she’d still be saying that if her album had been a hit and she didn’t have to cancel her tour because of poor ticket sales.Tweet
