Le Tigre meet Christina Aguilera

So keen were Le Tigre to write for Christina they came out of hiatus to do so.

Yes, that Le Tigre; yes, that Christina Aguilera.

Apparently, what would expect to be a gulf between the two sides politically can be quite easily bridged:

"[We] found a ton of common ground in our aim to make upbeat danceable tracks celebrating female friendship, strength, and of course, PARTYING," [Johanna] Fateman said. "For a feminist band obsessed with pop music, it was pretty much a dream come true."[

Hmm. Yes, there's clearly common ground - although much of Aguilera's after school movie emoting has sounded more talking point than heartfelt belief - but isn't the central message of Aguilera's career curve been about how you can sell a lot, lot more records if you take your pants off for a Maxim cover or two? Isn't there even a discussion to be had there rather than just going "woo - we all like to PARTY"?

I could very well be wrong - but what's disappointing is that Le Tigre don't even seem to want to tell me why I'm wrong.

This is MEGA EXCITING. The 65days mash up of Dirty came up on shuffle the other day and reminded me what a massively thrilling pop roarer Christina is. Besides, Hanna has always been pretty pro the aggressively sexual statement - Genie In A Bottle is practically the same message as I Like Fucking. Sort of.
