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.
