Christina Aguilera opens her eyes, her lips red and a heavy choker around her neck. She rolls her head.

Meanwhile, she sits in a red chair, wearing stilettos, which she is attached to. On her face, a black band covers with her mouth and spikes are attached to her eyes. It’s seriously scary.

Wearing glasses, she walks against a white background wearing a clear trench coat. She removes her glasses and walks around a woman who is suspended in the air. She rubs from the girl from her thighs to her chest. She walks back to the woman and presses her chest against hers. The woman sits down in the chair and she is between the woman’s legs. She kisses the woman on the lips.

Against a blue background, she is wearing a black bra with a white bodysuit, with cut outs. There, she and her dancers perform their routine. Two dancers grab her breasts. In another white background, she is wearing heavy mascara and her hair is puffed out. She is joined by five other women who look like her.

Referencing Madonna’s “Express Yourself,”  men dance out in the rain. In a red bra and panties, she joins them in their dance routine outside. She holds a glass to her eye and then seduces a man. She crawls on the floor, licking it.

In a bedroom, she lights the clothes on fire and walks away in her tight, leather dress. She posts it online. Her two fragrances are shown. She sprays herself everywhere with it.

In the bedroom, she has sex with the man and simulates oral sex on the woman. She and her dancers are in a church where they perform another dance routine. Multiple versions of herself are shown in white while wearing a silver bra. With her heavy choker, she ends the video by looking straight into the camera.

 

Rating: 0/5

Never has sex looked so unsatisfying and ugly. When she sits in the chair in her bondage gear, she resembles a serial killer. In the middle of it, she has an homage to Madonna with “Express Yourself” but unfortunately twists it into something darker. There is no empowerment or seduction behind it. It’s a power-hungry woman taking advantage of her submissive worker. The dance routine in the church is meant to be edgy but is an also-ran segment where nothing of note happens. For Aguilera, the sex has become degrading to both genders, having it become a violation rather than enjoyment.
