The music video for the song was shot April 7–9, 2010 over three days in Los Angeles, directed by Hype Williams and shot In a radio interview with Z100 Atlanta, Aguilera stated: “I’m more confident and comfortable in my own skin. I think I’m even a more sexual Christina.”

The video, which is inspired by S&M and features bondage, was influenced by other acts, pays an homage to Madonna clips and copy Lady Gaga videos.

Lyrics for Christina Aguilera – Not Myself Tonight

You know tonight
I am feeling a little out control
is this me
you wanna get crazy
because I don’t give a…

1ST VERSE
I’m out of character
I’m in rare form
and If you really knew me
you’d know its not the norm

B SECTION:
Cause I’m doing things that I normally won’t do
the old me’s gone I feel brand new
and if you don’t like it F*ck you

The music’s on and I’m dancing
I’m normally in the corner just standing
I’m feeling unusual
I don’t care cause this is my night

HOOK:
I’m not myself tonight
tonight I’m not the same girl same girl
I’m not myself tonight
tonight I’m not the same girl same girl

2ND VERSE:
I’m dancing alot and I’m taking shots I’m feeling fine
I’m kissing all the boys and the girls
someone call the doctor cause I lost my mind

B SECTION:
Cause I’m doing things that I normally won’t do
the old me’s gone I feel brand new
and if you don’t like it F*ck you

The music’s on and I’m dancing
I’m normally in the corner just standing
I’m feeling unusual
I don’t care cause this is my night

HOOK:
I’m not myself tonight
tonight I’m not the same girl same girl

I’m not myself tonight
tonight I’m not the same girl same girl
BRIDGE:
In the morning
when I wake Up
I’ll go back to the girl I used to be
but baby not tonight…

  2. THIS VIDEO IS BULLSHIT AND SHE COPYED GAGA IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE THE ONLY WAY SHE GETS PEOPLE TO LOOK AT HER IS BY COPYING PEOPLE! SHE NEEDS TO GET HER OWN STUFF FOR ONCE AND STOP BEING A DOUCHE!

    • Dayna …. she did not copy her (lady gaga … NO SHE DINT NOT) And why do I care ? because lady gaga is the bomb and christina agu has her issues .. but she is the the fab … now bitch maddonna is the queen .. any questios?

      • she didnt copy lady gaga! FYI..HOW OLD ARE YOU MUST BE LIKE 1 OR 2..CUZ THATS HOW LONG WANNA BE GAGA HAS BEEN AROUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CHECK UR FACTS….CHRISTINA HAS BEEN AROUND WAY FRICKIN LONGER THAN GAGA!!

    • she did not copy lady gaga they are both awesome stars that express their music in different ways just da same technech(ignore the spelling)

    • It’s not true, she was inspired by her movie Bulresque, a  lot of elements are the same. You have to look to the trailer. GOOD JOB XTINA 

    • I looooved it the 1st time i saw it as
      EXPRESS YOURSELF from Madonna!!!!!!
      TRUTH OR DARE from Madonna!!!!!!!
      everything from Madonna n GAGA!!!!!!!!

  3. justt when I was starting to think that she has a little bit of talent…
    oh well. Reminds me of not only of Gaga but of Shakira’s She Wolf…. she sucks and sells too much sex through her music, which means she lacks talent altogether.

    • Don’t mistake that. Usually she’s not like this, it’s my first time seeing her look so much like a stripper and prostitute. In her other videos she just looks like the queen of glam and I promise you her voice is great without the effects. I can’t believe she lost her style to the influence of Gaga, who started this extreme sex appeal thing. I can’t call Gaga original because her music always reminds me of something I’ve heard when I was little and the lyrics are plain nonsense and her so called fashion is always so similar in all her videos and every song has too much effects added in though I still like her because it’s so catchy and is great for dancing to. *sigh* I really miss how the old singers used to be, meaningful lyrics, unique fashion and success without all that gross sex appeal. Seriously, leave the weird outfits to Gaga. Christina shouldn’t have used so many effects, it ruins her great voice.

        • No, i agree totally. Christina has an amazing voice period, there was no need to go so far into this direction. Yes we know, sex sells, but that was just sex not music. Pls tell me the point behind the bondage and SM? I feel sorry for the future generation, they won’t even know what music is.

      • Well, I don’t see Gaga as sex appeal because I don’t feel like she’s trying to be sexy.
        This, on the other hand, was sheer sex appeal, Xtina trying to be sexy. I didn’t think Dirrrty was too bad, it had some style. This was just cheap and the song was bad.

  4. STOPPPPPP!
    be nice and know who reps.are …. u are good but ,dont be no ones puppet.
    Be humble and say things nice about madonna (She is the bitch of all) and dont ever say nothing lame about lady GAGA … because down the line she will help u out. My own advise …. have fun … there is no competition
    …. everyone knows each strenght.
    be a bitcth and am for higher grounds … love …. ME!

  5. al parecer han olvidado quien es cristina, ella ya era muy famosa mucho antes de que gaga llegara!!!, asi como tambien ya habia hecho videos sexosos y lesbicos mucho antes de que gaga fuera nombrada, ya olvidaron moulan rouge???? Bola de IMBECILES

  6. Just as the name of the song indicates, this is so not her style. She is so not herself in this song. I hope she’ll go back to her old style. Yes, this is too much like Gaga especially the sex appeal of it all but geez people, stop being haters going around shouting down every new or old song as Gaga copycats for no reason (stripper stage outfits have become the norm these days). I love Christina, she’s got awesome vocal skills and, don’t deny it, this song is awesome, I couldn’t stop singing it all day. Go Christina!

    • I’m agree, Christina Aguilera is more better singer than Lady Gaga, no matter the style she got now, she is the best…GO CHRISTINA.

  7. LA VERDAD que CRISTINA AGUILERA FUE… LA 1ª PRIMERA…………. QUE SE VESTIA UNOS AÑOS ATRAS…… CON TRAJES EXTRAÑO Y EXTAVAGANTES LLAMARLE LA ATENCIÓN A SU FANS, SINO QUE DEJO MAS DE 2 AÑOS DE SU CARRERA POR CUIDAR Y DAR CARIÑO A SU QUERIDO HIJO, el cual SU PADRE no le daba cariño ni aprecio sino MALTRATO A LA CANTATE cuando rea niña Y POR ESA PARTE ESTOY CON ELLA.

    ………Y LADY GAY ES UNA COPIONA LE ACOPIADO A: THALIA, MADONNA Y NO SE LE OLVIDO A CRISTNA AGUILERA. PARA SER COMPLETA INDENTICA CG. POR ESO QUE EL NUEVO VIDEO de CG que se llama “Not Myself Tonight” por eso LE COPIA a LG PARA VENGARSE que ella se le a cogido o copiando su vida profesional.

  8. CRISTINA AGUILERA THE TRUTH WAS … THE FIRST …………. 1st Who dressed few years ago …… SUITS WITH STRANGE AND EXTAVAGANTES CALLING ATTENTION TO YOUR FANS, BUT that left more than two years of his career to care and give affection to her dear son, which his father gave him no affection or appreciation, but ABUSE TO THE CANTATA when she rea And by that party I’m with her.

    ……… AND GAY LADY IS A COLLECTION LE Copycat A: THALIA, MADONNA AND DO NOT MISS A CRISTNA AGUILERA LE. CG INDENT TO BE COMPLETE. THAT IS WHY THE NEW VIDEO CG called “Not Myself Tonight” LE COPY why LG To avenge that she is caught or copying to your professional life.

  9. for you ppl who say christina copyed gaga….thats BS! gaga sucks..and christina was in the music business WAY BEFOR LADY GAGA CAME ALONG! you guys are so imature..and dont no what you are talkin about! CHRISTINA HAS HER OWN STYLE AND I THINK SHES BEEN DOING REALLY GOOD! BECAUSE SHE HASNT BEEN AROUND LATELY DOESNT MEAN SHE CAME BACK AND COPYED WANNA BE GAGA! ITS A FRICKIN SHOW OR MUSIC VIDEO…AND THEY PUT IT ON FOR THE FANS! SO GET A FRICKIN LIFE!

  10. I think you should all get a life. May I remind you of which came first…Xtina and her dirrty days. Xtina took a break to start a family and left the lime light to the likes of manufactured wannabes like Gaga (yes, talented. But does her new video Alejandro not look familiar to that of the Queen Madonna?). In terms of talent, Xtina has a beautiful voice and can sing in different styles, Lady Gaga’s voice is electronically enhanced. If you really listen to her live you would know what I mean. I also contradicted myself in the first sentence. I am also sad for replying to this thread. I appreciate all music, that of Gaga, Xtina and the Queen Madonna. Britney is just a mess.

  11. Well let me remind you that Christina Aguilera is a singer who came out in 1998 and is very famous since then. She does not need to imitate anybody, Lady Gaga even dreamed of being the world of music, plus Christina has a wonderful voice. You are ignorant and stupid.

  12. miren envidiosos de la verga primero fue christia antes q gaga como sangran por la herida el video esta fabuloso y si christina es ramara y puta y todon lo q dice q quedara para la gaga la copia de todas jajajaj dejen de sangar por la herida

  13. I’m so sorry but obviously none of you have been around that long – christina didn’t copy gaga but Madonna!!! Go look at Madonna’s Express Yourself music video from 1986, and Human Nature from 1994, both the big haired slut christina with the leather whip is from Human Nature with the pure white back ground, and all the naked men dancing in the rain with christina in the suit and using a monacle is copied EXACTLY from Express Yourself, this is clearly a rehash of what Madonna has done before. As for Gaga (though I love her) she too is simply taking what Madonna did in the 80’s and 90’s and rehashing it – her themes of sexual provactivity and lesbian and gay sex, catholicism and nudity. Sorry but get your facts straight before you go and insult Madonna who is clearly still the Queen as these artists can not come up with their own ideas and concepts so they steal from her making her work obviously more powerful than theirs. Long live Queen Madonna!!!!

  14. Okay, Christina didnt copy anyone the music video director does. however Gaga,Britney, and christina all copy the front runner the one who pushed the boundries from the begining Madonna. Do i need to point you to the video this one  copies? Human nature Video and her  Erotica Video both have some influence here along with a small tribute to her Vouge Video. so dont sit there and say she is copying Gaga when Madonna came first and she wouldnt be making videos like this is it wasnt for Madonna in the first place.

  15. The madonna video Justify my love was banned in the 90s but this one is just like it and its not banned…, is our society becoming more okay with our sexuality or is our society just becoming worse?

  16. These still is older like they said Madonna and stuff..but it has come back in style like gaga and Brittney..Christina  stills got it ..but Madonna made it.Major complaint on my part..the end..it just stops..I didnt like that but over all she looked amazing and her voice is still amazing.. I deffently agrre that his is not normal at all for her,but that what the song is called and I think if you like her YOu like all her stuff.Go Christina!!!

    • sorry for the spelling mistakes …still should be style in the beginning  oh and agree, defiantly, and you No YOu sorry guys.
       

  17. Christina Aguile looks with much more class. I like them all three Maddonna, Lady Gaga and ofcourse now I love Christina ’cause she had the courage to get out of her shell and not only that, but it was greattttttttttttttttt and she looks great!

  18. You can compare Christina’s video to whom ever’s video simular work, and point out good and bad visons of creativeness or lack of ..on everbody’s work. I feel this her vison on this subject. You won’t see her do this type of video twice. ….Like a band like Van Halen never did and familiar sound twice. Ever wonder why Eddie never did Erouption or Dance the night away , twice in his long career , it’s been done… I guess redundant is the word………P.S. Her voice IS the best in the business, if you can’t hear it, maybe you should have your hearing rechecked… : )
