I’ve always longed to see Christina Aguilera as a carnie, and in her new video for the ballad “Hurt,” she does not disappointment. Not only is she a carnie, but a sexy carnie who rides an elephant, and has a complicated relationships with her father. The video is beautifully art directed and shot, and apparently Xtina herself had a hand in the direction.
The song is also great, so combined with “Ain’t No Other Man,” Xtina is two for two in my book. I may have to listen to her new album after all.
