Day Four: Christina Aguilera mounts up
Christina Aguilera, in her brave promotion of the music video to "Not Myself Tonight," gives one more long-lasting look at us -- her bound, suffering fans -- as she prepares to unleash (leash?) the clip later tonight, at midnight (technically tomorrow, at 12:01 a.m.).
Modern philosopher Demetri Martin once quipped, "A treehouse is really insensitive. It's like killing something and making one of its friends hold it." And here we find the same destruction-as-reconstruction conundrum, with a cow-hide chair mounted by animals wearing more leather. We need kill the cow in order to mount it and to don cowhide to its maximal, sexy potential. This is our First World struggle.
