Aguilera, Christina : Beautiful

Aguilera, Christina : Beautiful

In two videos, Christina Aguilera and Tatu have done more to combat the effects of Section 28 than an entire Labour government has managed in six years. Just as ‘All The Things She Said’ brought teenage lesbianism to daytime TV (on cable, at least), so the ‘Beautiful’ video gives us a melancholy drag queen and a pair of snogging boys. Unfortunately, ‘Beautiful’ is a somewhat whiffy power ballad written by [a][/a] cohort Linda Perry that bears a distinct resemblance to Elton John’s ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’. Nevertheless, good attitude.
