I have nothing against Christina Aguilera, but if you had taken me aside at the Bikini Kill show at The Bank (NYC) in 1995 (I think) and told me that 14 years later the singer would be collaborating with the woman who would become the next Mariah Carey, I would've laughed you out of the dank, smelly bathroom and/or the pit. So, pretend antagonist, feel free to say "I told you so."

Christina Aguilera sure has come a long way from her "Genie in a Bottle" days. For her upcoming September album, Light & Darkness, she recorded songs with British electronic acts Goldfrapp and Ladytron, plus former Zero 7 singer Sia, as SPIN.com reported last summer.

Now, Perez Hilton says that ├╝ber-feminist punk group Le Tigre (which features Bikini Kill singer Kathleen Hanna -MB) will join "Xtina" in the studio to work on the album.

The invisible wall between Maximum Rock'N'Roll and Vanity Fair collapsed long ago, but the dust still causes the occasional cough.
